How To Be Loving: As Your Heart Is Breaking Open and Our World Is Waking Up (eBook — Digital PDF)
How to use the genius of your heart to create conditions for healing—yourself and the collective.
A heart centered life is a reflective life, and when we live more reflectively, we operate less reactively. With her signature relatability, Danielle LaPorte turns self-help right side out. “Don’t try to life-hack your way through fear—that only creates more fear.” And stop suppressing your ego: “It will put up a fight, but the ego just wants to be loved—integrated, not segregated.”
The bestselling author explains why self-acceptance is counterculture, how virtues can turn into dangerous vices, and why healing is a nonlinear process that leads to gentleness. The most liberating message might be, “We don't need to focus on ‘fixing’ ourselves. As we focus on living from our heart center, anything that’s not in alignment with that light will fall away.”
Designed with reflective practices and inspirational mini posters, the tone is calm and steady, but there’s an urgency to this content. “The heart-mind is our greatest and often most neglected form of intelligence," teaches Danielle. “There’s no polarization in the heart space. It can hold fear and compassion, shadow and light—yours and theirs. We’re yearning to come into balance with love. It’s the antidote to polarization.”
LaPorte examines the misidentifications that cause suffering and helps us identify with our Divine Nature. “You are not the wound. You're the healer.” Her wisdom is relief in anxious times.
