The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz

This is an easy, quick, enjoyable, read. It’s been several years since I read it. Actually I reread it 3 or 4 times.

 

Also,  A Course in Miracles if you’re not turned off by Christianity. Although very patriarchal in its wording. It is definitely not dogmatic or anything resembling fundamentalism. Long story short. A psychologist somewhat reluctantly channels Jesus Christ in the late 60’s for 5 or 6 years and of course writes it all down. It mirrors the New Testament in a number of ways. Makes use of modern language though,  Such as the use of the word ‘ego’ and is quite abstract in general.

There are several websites where you can read it for free online. I did a search using just the word Love on this ACIM website and got 1594 results from the text. Below is one of the results from the beginning of the text.

https://acim.org/acim/text/introduction/en/s/51?wid=search&fwv=true&q=Love

⁶The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. ⁷It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. ⁸The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. (ACIM, T-in.1:6-8)

That's my view on Love :D

 Love as a Business Strategy steers clear from piety and theoretical concepts and instead shares grounded stories of resilient people running a real business.

Love as a Business Strategy - an awesome book as for me, somewhat between self-help and "boring" business books

Every perspective has at least a piece of the truth in it.

No one is capable of being 100% wrong.

As a long time ACIM student i have to say it is much more nuanced and complex then you described in your post...

@Bojan V You are very right about that.
Thank you for bringing this post back to the top. Feel free to elaborate if you feel inspired to.

I just checked the link I left above. It’s still good if any readers are curious about ACIM.
