I love sharing good things and here are some of the books that influenced The Invitation to Love
My favorite book of all time. This book, based largely on Toltec traditions, uses four simple agreements to serve as guidepost for transforming the way people view their interactions with others.
When I was first introduced to Brené Brown’s work, I was immediately captivated by her idea of vulnerability, the interconnectedness of our human experiences, and the connections that are built by our ability to share of ourselves with others.
Franklin, a critically acclaimed film producer, illustrates nicely how his own journey of faith catapulted him on a career path that transcended all expectations. Faith is a central tenet of The Invitation to Love, and the way Franklin speaks of hope and the power of faith influenced many of the conversations within The Invitation.
Dyer like no other illustrates how the power of our words in congruence with our deeds can move mountains to manifest our deepest desires.
In The Invitation to Love, I share about bringing things to completion. Coelho, like no other demonstrates how only when we complete our own journey and search for meaning, can we open up space for love and a lover to do the same.
No text I have ever read has influenced my life more than this book. The most spiritually transformative book I have ever encountered. It is the Truth with a capital “T” – the power of forgiveness, the release of resentment, and the ability to self-manufacture joy all can be found in this text….it is my night-stand read for life.
The greatest love story ever told, if you want to know how pain, and resistance meet love, look no further than this classic American work.
Love is a spiritual journey, its toted throughout The Invitation to Love, but no one does a better job of speaking about the spiritual dimensions of love, and of what it means to be spiritually connected to another like Williamson.
This writer speaks about the power of the Ego and how it can divert us on the path for truth like few others can. For a person who is in search of how to be still and look inward to find truth, look no further than this thought provoking read.
This fun, light-hearted read gives sound understanding of how finding a mate is more than a surface level experience, but is a deep soul-churning experience and is best found by two people who are on equal plains in life.
This master piece is truly the hearthstone of understanding love. Based on Williamson’s reflections from A Course in Miracles, she gives sage understanding of her path to healing, peace, and honoring love through her own spiritual journey.
A superb read that tells the story of one woman’s voyage to love. hooks like few others can, gives candid perspective of love, the barriers that form, and the difficulties that exist in bringing it to manifestation.
