What is Love?

Q: What is love? Often it seems to be unreachable.

A: Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others. Love for God or nature or even one’s pets opens the door to spiritual inspiration. The desire to make others happy overrides selfishness. The more we give love, the greater our capacity to do so. It is a good beginning practice to merely mentally wish others well in the course of the day. Love blossoms into lovingness, which becomes progressively more intense, nonselective, and joyful. There is a time when one ‘falls in love’ with everything and everyone they meet.

from The Eye of the I, ch. 17, pg. 328-329

  1. I wish to magnetize the value of receiving these short reminders of the wisdom contained in David’s books.
    I devoured the book “Eye of the I” back in 2005 and I just realized that I have not yet completely digested all of it’s wisdom and deep messages. I truly appreciate being reminded to go back and reread the book more slowly and to take the time to reflect on what I read to absorb it’s messages more deeply. Again, please accept my deepest gratitude.

  2. Thank you for this post Ms. Hawkins.
    I’ve been spending many hours every a week going through your husband’s content. Especially the audible lectures!
    I’m 21 now and I wish I found out about Dr. Hawkins when I was 12. It’s changed my life in such a short time and people are taking notice, particular my girlfriend! As I implement Docs teachings, I can feel the love I have for her spreading to many people and things around me.
    Like the Taco Bell clerk last night at the drive through! Lol! Thank you!!!! Nothing but love to you and David <3
