Love for No Reason by Marci Shimoff
Reviewer: Refilwe Thobega
If there’s one thing that can cure the world of hate, racism, poverty, sickness, crime, violence, abuse, greed and corruption, the list is endless. That one cure would not be music or sport, it would be “love”.
In her book Love for no Reason, Marci Shimoff – a celebrated transformational leader and a number one New York Times bestselling author – shares the Seven Steps to Creating a Life of Unconditional Love.
As living beings, we are created to receive and give love.
I once heard that there are only two forces in life: fear and love. We do something because we either love it or we are afraid (of something) – if we don’t do it. A student studies because she either loves her subject or she is afraid that if he/she doesn’t, she will fail. We go to work every day because we either love what we do or that we are afraid if we don’t, we will starve.
Whatever that one does, let the force behind be “love” and not “fear”. Because as I imagine, the reward will be greater as it will have a lasting effect.
Love for No Reason is “dedicated to those who hear the call of their heart to live in unconditional love”. Loving oneself is something that we take for granted. And what the author “prescribes” for that is love, sweet love – which usually comes from within.
With this book, may you be reminded of what the love and its ripple effect can bring into your life. This book is a love guru that comes in a form of a book. It is very well crafted. I definitely give it a “yes”.
