In The Soulmate Secret, Arielle Ford revealed her principles for attracting love. Now she lets readers in on her secret for sustaining that love for the long haul, through what she calls Wabi Sabi Love. The ancient Japanese art form of Wabi Sabi recognizes and honors the beauty in the imperfect. Applied to relationships, it means learning to love and appreciate all of the annoying, frustrating, less-than-ideal aspects of our partner—and ourselves—in order to create a union that thrives. By applying Wabi Sabi wisdom we learn to accept perceived flaws; diffuse negativity by instilling humor, humbleness and a generous heart; experience the other’s reality; turn conflict into connection; and make choices for the good of the partnership rather than the individual.
