Eros: A Return to Unconditional Love – Don Miguel Ruiz & Barbara Emrys

We all think we know what love is. We know it from the songs, romantic comedies and stories that we have been told since childhood. But what if love is not what we have been taught to believe? How can we transcend the idea of love that has been instilled in us, and how can we overcome the habits of a lifetime and discover pure, unconditional love?

Don Miguel Ruiz and Barbara Emrys show us that it is possible to love others and ourselves much more authentically and generously. One by one, Don pulls back the veils that prevent us from glimpsing the true nature of love so that we can transcend the idea that has been programmed into us.

Through the transformative power of awareness and attention, we will learn to see beyond our stories about love—those that we are told, but also those that we tell ourselves—so that we can change the way we think and react. Once you set the illusions aside, you can see yourself as pure energy and also decide where to direct that energy.

And when the energy of love rules your existence, amazing transformations are possible in every moment…

I Didn’t Do The Thing Today: Letting go of Productivity Guilt – Madeleine Dore

Any given day brings a never-ending list of things to do. There’s the work thing, the catch-up thing, the laundry thing, the creative thing, the exercise thing, the family thing, the thing we don’t want to do, and the thing we’ve been putting off, despite it being the most important thing. Even on days when we get a lot done, the thing left undone can leave us feeling guilty, anxious, or disappointed.

After five years of searching for the secret to productivity, Madeleine Dore discovered there isn’t one. Instead, we’re being set up to fail. I Didn’t Do the Thing Today is the inspiring call to take productivity off its pedestal – by dismantling our comparison to others, aspirational routines, and unrealistic notions of what can be done in a day, we can finally embrace the joyful messiness and unpredictability of life.

For anyone who has ever felt the pressure to do more, be more, and achieve more, this antidote to our doing obsession is the permission slip we all need to find our own way.
