A man was sitting with his friends in a local inn. After a couple of drinks, he asked his friends, “Do you love me?” “Of course, we do,” they replied. “So do you know what I need?” No one answered. “If you don’t know what I need then how can you say you love me?” To love and to be loved is the most basic human need. No wonder we are attracted to people who give us attention, care about us, and love us. Yet, love also remains the greatest challenge in most relationships. Why?
A Fistful of Love is a collection of insightful, thought-provoking nuggets of wisdom appreciated by millions around the world. This book is full of humor and narratives most beautifully woven into learnings of life that will make you stop and think.
Full of wisdom, this is such a thought provoking book. It touched me on so many different levels and gave me a peaceful feeling while reading it.
I found this book to be uplifting and nurturing. I’ll go back to it and read random chapters from time to time. I connected with so much of the book and know that if we all would think this way the world would be a much kinder and loving place.
I’m a positive person and it bothers me when I hear people complaining about things that I think are small, insignificant problems. So the chapter called “Problem Or Inconvenience?” was one of my very favorites. The author says, and I 100% agree, that you should know the difference between an inconvenience and a problem. If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire etc., then you’ve got a problem. Everything else is an inconvenience. Also, “A lump in the porridge, a lump in the throat and a lump in the breast are not the same lump. One should learn to know the difference.” So true, some people think something small is a catastrophe. It isn’t. When a true catastrophe hits your life, you’ll know the difference. I also loved that the author threw in some humor, parts of the book were very funny.
This is the first book I’ve read by Om Swami, and I’m already trying to decide which of his books to read next.
