In the presence of relationships that simply swept him away, Werner remarked, “I remember myself saying things like, ‘Marvelous, fantastic… but, an accident.’ We think that such things happen only by chance. They are not accidents. We have the power to create the space of relationship, to achieve mastery of our relationships. I’m not talking about being in ecstasy, or working little by little toward ecstasy. I’m talking about being willing to come from ecstasy, even when you are being serious, or having a problem, or not even thinking about ecstasy.”
-Werner Erhard – from The Graduate Review, September 1978
“Love is granting another the space to be the way they are and the way they are not.”– Werner Erhard
Photograph on the cover “Celelebrating Your Relationships” an audio tape by Werner Erhard. A commenter at Amazon.com had this to say about this cassette:
The inside cover of this truly remarkable cassette tape says this about its content: “You have the ability to create conditions in your life for miraculous relationships, relationships that are brilliantly alive, magical expressions of love”. I bought my copy of the tape at a seminar run by the London, England office of Werner Erhard & Associates in the late 1980s. I love this tape and love sharing it with my family and friends.Recorded at a large live event given by Werner Erhard, it perfectly captures for me the spirit and power of this man as he assists people in grappling with the issues of what it is to be alive. On the tape Werner talks, reads poems, and interacts with individual participants. (I had part of one of the poems he reads, ‘I carry your heart with me’ by e.e. cummings, read out at my wedding). Listening to the tape is an empowering, alive, challenging ‘on the court’ experience. There is a real magic here and plenty of ‘juice’. People who have done the est training, the Forum (like I did in 1989), the Landmark Forum or programs related to these will have a special listening for this, but maybe you don’t need to have participated in those courses to ‘get’ this.
