In any close relationship, whether it be between husband and wife, or partners, or mother and child, or siblings or even close friends, there are 2 magic mantras we need to know and keep in mind, for our relationships to flourish.
1) Initially, every relationship does well, as we focus on the good and wanted qualities of the other person. However, with time, we tend to take the other person's good qualities for granted, and start focusing only on what is lacking, or what we don't like. We start focussing on what we need to change in the other person, to suit our needs. And thanks to the law of attraction, we keep on getting more of the lack and more of the unwanted qualities. The other person, who is no different from us, is also doing the same. He or she is also taking us from granted and focussing on those areas in which we are lacking or deficient. And hence most relationships get strained and partners tend to drift apart. Daily arguments ensue, there are accusations and allegations, there are plenty of 'what if' and 'if only' and 'yes, but" and 'wish I had done things differently", and "but for you, my life would be heaven" etc. etc.  What we need to do, although it is very difficult when we are already filled with negativity is to shift our focus on what is there, and move away from what is not there. In many cases, it is even advisable to sit down and write on a piece of paper what it is, that we like about the other person, and what it is, that we dont. And we need to focus on the likes and ignore the dislikes. This brings into our lives more of the things we like and less of what we dont like. 
2) In order for someone to love us, the only thing we can do, is to give out love ourselves, to that person. The only currency, so to speak, which will get us love, is love itself. But instead of spending or giving love, we tend to give a whole lot of other things--judgment, anger, fear, worry, irritations, demands, likes and dislikes, threats, emotional blackmail, accusations, allegations etc. etc. Again, all this only serves in making the partners go further away. If you want love, give love and see how things change. And what is love? Love is anything that makes us feel good and energetic. Love is anything that feels good, deep down, that makes life look brighter. Love is sharing, love is caring, love is acceptance, love is giving freedom, love is forgiving, love is bending down to lift someone who is down, love is understanding, love is compassion, love is giving, love is being non-judgmental, love is being non-critical, love is tackling our near and dear ones with an iron hand but within a velvet glove, love is trusting, love is faith, love is respecting the other, even if we dont understand what they are is life. And anything that goes against love---hate, fear, anger, violence, guilt, grief, lust, greed, anxiety, worry, stress, jealousy, envy-----all these are destructive emotions, which will only further worsen the conflict between us, on earth. Love is harmony, and an absence of love is conflict. Go for love, anyday, anytime, anywhere. Open your heart, become vulnerable and connect to the heart of another. And that is also one of the paths, to God.

Subject: Castor Oil Helps Prevent Knee Surgery

Joe Graedon March 7, 2013 Alternative Health 24 Comments

 Q. Castor Oil is a life-saver for joints, especially knees.
 A few years ago, my husband hurt/twisted his knee while getting in and out of a huge truck. The pain only increased as time went by, so we went to urgent care. After x-rays, etc., my husband was told that it really required surgery to repair and fix his knee, which was NOT in our budget at the time. What to do?
> > We had already heard about using castor oil on joints from a couple of doctors (M.D.) with knowledge in natural remedies, also.
> > According to instructions, I massaged castor oil into his whole knee area; then I wrapped the whole area with an old cloth (that I would continue to keep stored/sealed in a zippy-bag, for re-use) and with saran-type-wrap, because castor oil is both oily and staining–it will not wash out. After that, we put a heating pad on the area (SET ON LOW heat) for an hour. We kept the wrappings on his knee over night.

> > I had to beg my husband to let me apply the castor oil and wrappings on the first night. The second night, he reminded me to fix up his knee again. Night number three, he did it himself, on his own. He woke up the next morning, with his knee feeling great.
> > If/when he or I ever hurt any joint, both of us know to rub with the castor oil, wrap with a cloth, cover for a while, and get relief. Heat does not have to be applied, but it helps.
> > There is nothing like castor oil for knees and joints. It’s messy, but who cares, if it helps prevent or STOP the need for surgery and if it stops pain?
> > PS. A few years ago a non-oily version of castor oil came out on the market: Castiva. We always kept a tube or two around the house; we can not find it now, though. Any idea where we can find Castiva?
> > A. Castiva Arthritis Pain Relief is still available. You can find it online or in independent pharmacies. Castiva contains a castor oil base and comes in both a warming formula (capsaicin) or a cooling formula (menthol and methyl salicylate). Capsaicin (the hot stuff in hot chili peppers) has long been used to ease joint pain. Combined with castor oil we think this is a winning formulation.
> > Here are some other castor oil stories:

> >> “Whenever my children hurt themselves, the first thing I reached for was the castor oil. My mother-in-law’s uncle was a boxer and castor oil was what they used after a boxing match to prevent hematomas and bruising. It works like a charm. It has been passed down as a remedy in my family for many years.”

> >> “I rub castor oil on my aches and pains, and it helps a lot. Some people make castor oil packs. I used them when the doctors said I had liver cancer. We don’t know what happened to the liver cancer! It is gone. I use castor oil every chance I get. I hope it works for others! Take care!!”

> >> “Used castor oil in Lacrosse for years. Put on castor oil and wrapped it with plastic wrap, bruise would at times be gone the next day. Frustrated a lot of players because they would swear that they hit you…  ”

> >> “Castor Oil DEFINITELY WORKS!!! I am a huge bruiser, esp. since I am borderline anemic and whenever I bruise and I apply castor oil right away directly to bruise and rub it in a bit, it significantly minimizes the bruise right away and/or decreases the severity or # of days it shows! I love it!

> >> “I had warts on my hands when I was younger. Tried the burning/freezing remedies and nothing worked as well as my mother’s remedy of applying castor oil to the wart and covering with a band aid. This got rid of the warts completely. I forget how long it took or how often I had to reapply, but they never came back.”

> >> “Castor oil completely eliminated a wart that I had tried to eliminate for over twenty years. It did not even leave a scar! I applied the oil on the wart after showering and at bedtime and covered it with a bandage. I kept at it until it was gone, maybe two months.”

> > We would love to learn about your castor oil stories. Share your experiences below.
