Chapter 2

Question Q3

Disappointment always tells you when you have been pursuing external power, even if you didn’t recognize it at the time or think about it. When you do things with strings attached (such as needing to be appreciated), you are care-taking, which is different from giving care with love. You can read about care-taking in Spiritual partnership: The Journey to Authentic Power (HarperOne, San Francisco, 2010) in several places. Check page 270 of the index to find them.
