"May Robert's wonderful life and work and heart keep helping others to know that inherent in life . . . is Love." - from the foreword by Daniel Ladinsky
"I didn't have much time for poetry when I was young," Robert Holden writes in the introduction to this elegant and inspiring book. "Maybe I was in too much of a hurry. . . . Fortunately for me, one poem after another found their way through my defenses and came to my rescue. Slowly, but surely, I began to see that inside each poem there was a gift waiting for me. A gift to help open up something inside of me-a new awareness, an epiphany, a cure for loneliness, renewed courage, and a call to action."
Finding Love Everywhere offers that same gift to you. A luminous collection of original poetry set within a framework of deep wisdom from an acclaimed teacher, it invites you on a journey that will move you and transform you as you awaken to the awareness of love's presence all around you.
The 66½ poems in these pages "are meditations with lyrics," Robert explains. "They invite you to be wise, to choose love, and to live your most authentic life."
