Based on Principles drawn from the I Ching
176 pages, paperback, 5-1/2 x 8-1/2

About this book
Born into a world where marriage, not love, has been given the high place in relationships, we find the perspective given in this book to be both unique and freeing. This book is welcome because it confirms what we know deep inside ourselves, but have not validated enough, because of the many negative things that have been said about love. Based on principles drawn from the I Ching, and the author’s own experiences, love is shown to be the principle energy of the Cosmos (what the Chinese call chi, or life force). It is given to two people as a Cosmic gift to help them recognize and free their true selves that have become “strangers within.” By observing the Cosmic Principles of Relating described here, we enable the love that nourishes and fulfills us, to endure.

“Extraordinarily helpful and relevant”
After working closely with Carol Anthony's “Guide to the I Ching" for a year, I found myself truly transformed in attitude and awareness. That work which continues, was hallmarked by an unexpected relationship and when I felt the powerlessness of loving another, I reached to "Love, an Inner Connection" because it was based in the principles I was familiar with. This book is absolutely necessary to guide you through the challenges of loving another. It requires that we grow up, discard useless attitudes and prejudices, and work from faith and discipline. It seeks to teach those who are willing to learn, that loving requires enormous perseverence and patience, and that relationships that are meant to last, indeed require work.
Mrs.Anthony's understanding of the I Ching and her unique talent of bringing an ancient text to our "current" issues serves as an inexhaustible source of inspiration and strength. — A Reader

“A Gem. I would never be without a copy”
I actually haven't picked this book up for a while, but I've given SO many copies of it away in the past. It is simply, my all-time favorite book on human love relationships. I think the thing that makes it so unique is that it speaks to the reality of the 'inner connection' between lovers, as opposed to the external and conventional ego connection, and this distinction explains a great, great many things/problems that drive people crazy in relationships. There are two distinct realities going on at the same time, and most of us don't realize this, nor do counselors, therapists or friends. Everyone acts as if the ego, apparent self is the part that is having the relationship, but that's more the part that is trying to get control of (and so distorting) what the Hearts are feeling. Real relationships are happening on the inner spiritual-heart level, and the ego self will never really get it, but can certainly wreck things. This book explains this whole phenomenon in a way that even I could understand it. It's a miracle that without this understanding any intimate relationships work out at all. If I could find my copy I could give a more intelligent review, but this book is sort of like the movie "The Wizard of OZ" to me (that always seemed to have come from another dimension)... Where did this information come from? Anyhow, the book is a little gem; get it. — James D. Parfitt, Seattle.
