    This is my favorite Deepak Chopra book so far. Even though the main focus is to help couples heal, sustain, or take their love to the next level, the book is every bit as helpful to a single person because each of us must foster a relationship with, and learn to love, our own true Self in order to see Love in another person. Deepak Chopra takes us through many spiritual traditions and quotes a wide variety of poets and writers to give a deep, profound knowledge of the concept of love and how to

    This is my favorite Deepak Chopra book so far. Even though the main focus is to help couples heal, sustain, or take their love to the next level, the book is every bit as helpful to a single person because each of us must foster a relationship with, and learn to love, our own true Self in order to see Love in another person. Deepak Chopra takes us through many spiritual traditions and quotes a wide variety of poets and writers to give a deep, profound knowledge of the concept of love and how to live in this world but not of it, to see love in all people and all things, and to know that reality is love, all else is illusion. Near the end he includes many love affirmations that he wrote while writing this book which are very illuminating to contemplate; and he encourages us to write our own as a way to strenthen our connection with our spirit and God.

    Few excerpts I found particularly meaningful:

    The reason that ego and love are not compatible comes down to this: you cannot take your ego into the unknown, where love wants to lead. If you follow love, your life will become uncertain, and the ego craves certainty. You will have to surrender to another person and the ego prizes its own will above anyone else's.

    Energy is a self-renewing commodity. Its flow isn't diminished by how much you take away. Love is eternal and unbounded, it is only we

    Energy is a self-renewing commodity. Its flow isn't diminished by how much you take away. Love is eternal and unbounded, it is only we who take tiny sips from its infinite ocean.

    Equality isn't based upon external factors or images. We all have an equal right to be appreciated, respected and understood.

    To accept another person means accepting his/her emotions. There is nothing more basic or intrinsic. .. You have to feel that your partner wants to understand you and your feelings before you can share experiences you barely understand yourself.

    Courtship succeeds to the extent that a man and woman can dismantle their defenses; it fails to the extent that they build new defenses together.

    This book is definitely one of my most favorite books and is one I re-read periodically as I go deeper into my spiritual journey. It defines for me the ideal spiritual relationship, one based upon unconditional love and seeing the Spirit within as the foundation for true intimacy. I read this to understand how to deepen relationships, understand the relationships I had created in the past and was currently experiencing, with a deep calling to establish truly loving relationships. Beautifully

    This book is definitely one of my most favorite books and is one I re-read periodically as I go deeper into my spiritual journey.

I read this to understand how to deepen relationships, understand the relationships I had created in the past and was currently experiencing, with a deep calling to establish truly loving relationships. Beautifully Deepak writes this book in a way that makes "The Path To Love" one that is truly internal and just as much about the relationship you have with yourself as others....and they are really one in the same.

    Found this the best of Deepak Chopra's books so far. Addresses a subject I ponder the most on - Love, and Chopra does an in-depth take on the subject. Some parts of it challenged notions I'd carried for a long time.

    The book is a keeper for me; there are days when I just pick up the book and randomly flit its pages, and re-read the content I land on, and find profound meaning in it, yet again.

    Wouldn't recommend the book for everyone - it will resonate with you only based on the stage you are in,

    It is the book you need to read if you are out there wanting to experience love.

    I usually write down beautiful lines from books into my notebook.

    But there were few chapters like "Letting Go" and "A house of Light" that were so insightful and beautiful that I xeroxed those two chapters completely.

    An amazing read.

    Practical and insightful to people who are looking for love and for those who can read and retrospect about the stuffs mentioned in the book.

    The most life changing book I've read. Deep. Will read again soon.

    My mom has always had a thing against Chopra for commercializing Rumi. She makes up Chopra jokes and ignores the fact that he lives in her town. I should mention here that I am incredibly influenced by my mom's opinions, but one (sad, depressed) day, I found myself buying 2 of his books at Borders. I had read one before and I didn't care for it much, but I felt compelled to give him another try. It must have been the vain author portrait on the cover of the book?

    This book isn't as cheesy as it

I had read one before and I didn't care for it much, but I felt compelled to give him another try. It must have been the vain author portrait on the cover of the book?

    This book isn't as cheesy as it sounds. Honestly. Granted, I bought it when I was in a place that could have used a cheesier book, but I'm glad it wasn't barfy so I could actually dig in.

    If I had to sum up the book I'd say it's just about being a more open person and realizing that people are doing the best they can with where they are in life. When you're more forgiving, you're being more compassionate, and that allows everything to flow better in your life and in your various relationships. Sure, there's some talk of love and passion (one of my favorite quotes was about looking around you to see what you've created- what you create is a reflection of your passion). But more of the book is about spirituality and good-vibeyness. And I love me some good vibe books.

    I read this book by the beach, so it could have sucked and I might have still liked it. While some parts of this were long-winded (or maybe I just don't care to read about other people's trials and tribulations) I actually found it pretty insightful, well-written, and its use of Rumi was beautiful in context.

    and I remember being stunned that the message was the same, "Live in the Now", but that this was such an easier, non-egotistical, not over-intellectualized version. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and hearing it's message, which came at a time when I really needed it. This was my first Chopra book, but definitely not the last.

  • Roxanne Kazda

    This book helped me during cancer.

  • Vaishali

    Very loving... in Deepak's signature narrative style.

    Two interesting points, but nothing earth-shattering:

    “Ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future” and “I am loved, therefore I am safe.”
