I’m reading Deepak Chopra’s The Path to Love: Renewing the Power of Spirit in Your Life. I want to share some of my favorite snippets of wisdom so far:
Fear of commitment mirrors a belief that spirit is unreachable. Thus, love becomes hopeless (100).
I am completely loved. I am completely lovable (1).
The spiritual meaning of love is best measured by what it can do, which is many things.
Love can heal.
Love can renew.
Love can make us safe.
Love can inspire us with its power.
Love can bring us closer to God (3).
Doubt reflects the ego, which is bound in time and space; love reflects God, eternal divine essence.
When you feel love, act on it. Speak your heart. Be truthful. Remain open (19).
Actually asking for love is one of the most difficult things for anyone to risk, and by risking it first in your heart, your heart, you open a door that will never close again (19).
You can never receive more love than you are prepared to receive.
You cannot give more love than you have to give.
The love reflected from another person has its source in your own heart (26).
