I have thought about the replies left in this thread. I doubt that the Doktor ever sought after a father like role but maintained a masculine, genuine personality that the ladies simply picked up on. He was/is genius and at most times that means being a good listener and speaker. It is my opinion that he possessed both qualities - as do I.

The Secret per say speaks volumes as does his third book but I think this father like mentality is not what he was going for. I allow my ladies to be themselves, no questions asked. I allow and want the carnal to manfest and I see this as the same jive the Doktor spoke of. I mean - Marilyn Monroe liked to fart during sex according to an article that I read and he enjoyed this trait about her. There is a lot to pick up on here but I feel it drifts back to the carnal nature that he adored so, and again - so do I.

�Love is one of the most intense feelings felt by man; another is hate. Forcing yourself to feel indiscriminate love is very unnatural. If you try to love everyone you only lessen your feelings for those who deserve your love. Repressed hatred can lead to many physical and emotional aliments. By learning to release your hatred towards those who deserve it, you cleanse yourself of these malignant emotions and need not take your pent-up hatred out on your loved ones.�
