Zen and the Art of Falling in Love (Google eBook)
As the great teacher Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh once said, "We never ask the meaning of life when we're in love." In fact, the question we should really be asking is, "Why aren't we in love all the time?"
We are meant to be in love. Being in love energizes our daily existence, fills us with positive feelings, heals the body and heart and makes every moment precious. In Zen and the Art of Falling in Love, psychologist, relationship expert and Zen practitioner Brenda Shoshanna offers a completely different way of looking at love by comparing the psychological understanding of relationships with the timeless principles of Zen practice. Contrary to popular opinion, real love never hurts -- it's the popularized illusions we have about it that hurt and upset us.
Each chapter in this book is structured around a different principle of Zen practice, giving us many lessons we can readily absorb to show us how to reclaim love, happiness and our true selves. You'll learn new means of dealing with the usual trouble spots in relationships, including miscommunication, insecurity and jealousy. As you look at these and other issues through the lens of Zen practice, you'll receive life-changing revelations that will lead to a new understanding of relationships and love.
Zen and the Art of Falling in Love will set you on a path to inner awareness and ultimate happiness. As you take this journey, you'll meet different individuals who are struggling to make love work in their own lives and you will develop a brand-new understanding of what it really means to love. It is a wondrous adventure that will show you how to open your life to love, fall in love...and stay in love.
