Robert Holden has written books on love and it is one of his hallmark subjects. When I asked him “Why is love such a struggle?” here’s what he had to say:
“I know that we can feel love. But love isn’t just a feeling. I know that we can think about love. But love is not just a thought. I think ultimately, love is the essence of who we are. That’s what we’re dealing with. And fundamentally, love is far, far more than just an emotion. It’s far more than just an idea. I don’t think it’s even something that we give and take so much as something that we actually are. It is the essence of who we really are. And I think that the destiny of our life, ultimately, is not so much to find love it is to be the most loving person that we can be. So actually, I see love as the great spiritual path. I also think that love is our best and only chance as a human species to evolve and survive.”
Robert originally presented “Love & The Enneagram” two years ago, a 10-part journey on how to use the Enneagram to navigate the stages of growth in love and to expand your capacity to love and be loved. This illuminating course is now available for you at 50% off for a limited time.
