I was inspired to write The Seven Symphonies of Extraordinary Love based on a question I received at one of my workshops. I was asked if peace would ever be possible. My answer to this question was “Yes- when a critical mass of people around the world actively makes peace a priority.”
Although this question has undoubtedly been asked many times before, at that very moment I was suddenly struck by the fact that people need a system to follow to become part of the solution. The Seven Symphonies of Extraordinary Love is my contribution towards providing that blueprint for others. The book is about loving others unconditionally and giving for the sake of giving without expecting reward. It also offers practical guidelines that people can follow to spread this message to the people around them.
One of my biggest inspirations for the message of peace is based on an experience that is very near and dear to my heart. Growing up in India, my relationship with my mother was a dynamic of love and hate. My feelings towards her caused a great deal of personal turmoil. When my arranged marriage failed in 2004, I blamed it all on my mother and did not speak to her for 9 months. I decided to excommunicate her from my life. This time was difficult for me, however, as I was feeling little joy and peace.
One day I was at a bookstore and a picked up a book of poetry by Rumi. In front of me was the quote, “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” I resolved in that moment that I would make peace with my mother. We had a heart to heart communication and told one another how much we loved each other. Now as a result of my deepened understanding of love, my mother has become my new best friend.
From this experience, I learned no matter how impossible a situation looks, you can always make peace with anyone anywhere and anytime. We need to open our hearts to love. My mission in life is to inspire people to live consciously with love and tolerance, and to contribute their unique gifts to the world.
The Seven Symphonies of Extraordinary Love is my way of contributing to the world. I am hoping people will join me in spreading this message of love for the goal of world peace.
