A 100% Honest Book Review

Writing about love will not be a simple job, however Susan Piver (creator, meditation instructor, and founding father of the Open Heart Project) has brilliantly utilized historical Buddhist knowledge to fashionable love and relationships in her new ebook The Four Noble Truths of Love.

The 4 noble truths of affection

At Help Mama Meditate, I hold issues fairly secular so I gained't get into the main points of Buddhism or the Four Noble Truths themselves. To any of you curious to be taught extra concerning the 4 noble truths, I like to recommend this quick and informative piece by The Tattooed Buddha.

Piver factors out in the beginning of the ebook that you simply don't need to be a Buddhist or change your spiritual beliefs to learn her ebook or profit from his phrases. She takes a Buddhist educating about struggling (or dissatisfaction) and applies it to like and relationships. This ebook will not be essentially a non secular textual content, however a philosophical one about love within the current.

The scary fact about love

Piver boldly says that "relationships never stabilize". Take a second to consider it. It's a scary thought, but in addition thrilling and insightful on the identical time. The information that relationships don’t turn out to be entrenched or stabilized opened my eyes.

We usually suppose that in the future {our relationships} will simply relax and be simple. This expectation {that a} relationship ought to be steady "makes it unstable". Piver affords that if a pair encounters this instability collectively, it’s love. It additionally affords readers a "path" to observe, together with a meditation observe.

What I like about Piver is that she by no means claims to be a relationship knowledgeable. She didn't write a high ten listing of the way to repair your marriage or long-term relationship. Instead, she wrote from her coronary heart. She instructed very private tales about her life and marriage that I actually cherished and valued.

Meditation and love

Susan Piver emphasizes the significance of meditation for love and relationships. It doesn’t concentrate on the psychological or well being advantages of meditation (though it doesn’t ignore them). This ebook teaches us that meditation could be a love train that has been mind-boggling to me as a result of I have a tendency to have a look at issues with a scientific lens.

There are so many moments of knowledge and readability on this ebook. I discovered myself rereading passages when my attitudes towards love, relationships, and marriage opened extensive. Because love is about being weak, open, and compassionate. Love is highly effective: it will probably harm, however it will probably additionally heal.

* I obtained a pre-digital copy of Susan Pivers The Four Noble Truths of Love. I beloved the ebook a lot that I purchased a paperback and a duplicate for a good friend. This is an sincere evaluate that’s 100% my very own phrases.
