This weekend I was completely captivated by the book Dear Lover: A Woman’s Guide to Men, Sex, and Love’s Deepest Bliss by David Deida.
Deida has the amazing gift of lyrical writing, along with the ability to explain men and women in a way that honors both.
I found myself saying “Yes!” at almost every turn, as Deida describes exactly the kind of fulfilling partnership women crave, that also honors men. He calls for more openness, as well as the expression of the divine feminine (it’s about time!). He encourages women to embrace their femininity and to let man’s masculinity complement it. “When you feel deep into your heart, you feel love…” It’s a beautiful thing.
I can’t say enough about this book. If you’re seeking to understand what a spiritual and symbiotic relationship between a man and a woman might look like, this is the first book you want to read.
Side note: Deida’s writing style is so captivating, it will inspire you to be a better writer. I couldn’t help notice how much more pizazz my writing had this weekend with Deida’s words whispering in my ear.
That’s the beauty of reading – it inspires you to be an even better writer!
Writing Song of the Week: U Want Me 2 by Sarah McLachlan–I’ve got it on repeat. 🙂
BLOG UPDATE: Starting next week, I’ll be in Brazil. Stay tuned for updates, as I go on a spiritual journey to see John of God (oh, and watch Brazilian men play guitar while drinking Brazilian wine of course!).
