Part of my many duties as an Agape licensed Spiritual Practitioner is that I get to hold meditative vigil during Sunday service at least once a month.
As a result, I not only get to hear Rev. Michael Beckwith’s amazing message but I sometimes get to meet and commune with some outstanding guest speakers!
This past Sunday, bestselling author Barbara De Angelis spoke on her topic “Making the Choice for Love, Now More Than Ever.” And what a greatly inspiring talk it was too!
Barbara made the point that Love is a CHOICE. It’s not something someone gives to us – love is ours and we either turn it on inside ourselves or we turn it off. And she especially had the following message for single people:
Being around some people makes us feel like turning our love “on” and then we feel like we’re “in love”. Barbara makes the point that we are all ALWAYS “in love”, and encourages us to make that choice in more moments throughout our life, not just with certain special people or experiences.
This message came to me through Barbara’s 1991 book “How to Make Love All the Time”. In fact, I read most of the books Barbara had written in the early 1990’s, which very much helped me to finally attract my soulmate in 1995!
I remember after my wedding in 1997, a girlfriend who was not having luck in relationships asked me for some tips. I showed her all my relationship books. She “borrowed” all my Barbara De Angelis books (I never got them back, but she told me I didn’t need them! LOL!) and in a couple of years she landed her soulmate, whom she is still with, and they have a teen-aged son together.
Barbara’s latest book (available here) is called “The Choice for Love” and I highly recommend it, as well as all her books! Her wisdom is timeless and her message is as important today as it was when I first discovered her.
