Love heals

"So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love." -1 Corinthians 13

Check out- Love's Way:The Union of Body, Ego,Soul and Spirit by Brenda Schaeffer. I thought I know what love really is until I read this book.

I like the recipes for a vibrant physical; healthy ego; soulful life and spirit based love life.The Body in Love; the Ego in Love; the Soul in Love and the Spirit in Love are great. The meditations are worth checking out.

Quotes in "Love's Way" that I would like to share:

"...what stands between you and the power of love is you"

"...the most powerful human energy we have is love. And our greatest energy center, our central powerhouse, the heart, mediates that energy."

"Love says: I am the flow of life. I flow from the Great Spirit to you. I enter through the heart. Harness me. I am the greatest power you can know. Let me in and use me. You must take me to others. Others must take it back to you. This is the greatest circle of life. Go my friend. Never forget the words: I love you. And now live them."
