What is LOVE?…Love is so many things…Love has inspired paintings, music, movies, poems, writings. How can one single emotion transform and create such beauty in this world? Love is a feeling- the most powerful feeling in this vast universe- a frequency a vibration that can lift us to the heavens and we can live “heaven on Earth”.
“Love is the most powerful force in the universe.” – Mariela Stewart
I am not only talking about romantic love, which on its own- is a magical form of love, where you meet your soul’s counterpart and become one in that moment- forever. But the truest form of love is to see others and love others despite their imperfections and to push the envelope a little further, it means to love even our worst enemies- or in Gandhi’s own words- love the meanest of all creations.

The true you comes alive. The surrender will pave the way to self-discovery. I will not sugarcoat the process, as one must endure much darkness before seeing the light. You must endure the dark night of the soul, but in the end of this process of striping down to your very core, you will live the magic of life and all that you are destined to experience will finally find you.
Why are you on this path we call life? Many of our intentions- whether they were purposefully or un-purposefully invoked have lead us to the present moment of our reality. The broken road as many have called it, have brought us many challenges, ups and downs, happiness and sadness – all for a higher purpose- the souls learning.
