The Love is an international collection of over seventy exquisite essays, articles, and poems exploring the core message relayed to us by God through the great Prophets: Love is the Way.

To underscore God’s most primordial and preeminent commandment, both new and classic selections are presented in this unique anthology, including the work of acclaimed New York Times best-selling authors and the generous contributions of Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners.

John was honored to be invited to contribute to this compelling work, in which he introduces the concept of community as an incubator of conscious co-creation through which we can construct the world of our dreams, where each participant not only contributes to the whole but does justice to his or her reason for being. You’ll find it in the chapter on, “Unconditional Love.”

“We are now at a moment of our earthly life that love must be present across religious boundaries. This kind of Love has in fact become a necessity for our survival. The spiritual paradigm based on Love, therefore, addresses our human condition in a most timely manner.”

– Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Ph.D., Professor of Islamic Studies at George Washington University – author of Islam: Religion, History, and Civilization and The Heart of Islam.

“You feel the peace as you settle into the silence that hope and possibility provide. Love of family, friends, love of your dog and cat, your fish in your pond, the birds on the wings, love of the sunrise and sunset … love of each other … beautifully expressed in The Love.”

– Nikki Giovanni,author of New York Times best-seller Rosa and Bicycles: Love Poem; Recipient of American Book Award and Oprah Winfrey “Living Legends” Award.

“This book skillfully and eloquently walks us on love’s true path. It is a trustworthy guide to healing our hearts, expanding our understanding, and clarifying our view of life’s main ingredient: unconditional love.”

– Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, founder of Agape International Spiritual Center, author of Spiritual Liberation: Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential, and featured minister in the documentary The Secret.

“I am honored to endorse this radiant book. It is filled with illumined and practical advice on how to rise to unconditional love and emanate its power in action to transform our world.”

– Andrew Harvey, founder of the Institute of Sacred Activism, BBC documentary subject for The Making of a Modern Mystic, and author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism and The Return of the Mother/

The Love is narrated by Laurel of The Oracle Institute, who believes we will soon enter the New Millennium – the prophesied era of peace and Love which represents the fifth stage of humanity’s collective spiritual evolution:
First Spiritual Paradigm
All is One
14 billion BCE (pre-Big Bang)
Second Spiritual Paradigm:
Era of the Great Mother
circa 25,000 BCE – 5000 BCE
Third Spiritual Paradigm:
Era of Gods & Goddesses
circa 5000 BCE – 50 CE
Fourth Spiritual Paradigm:
Era of God the Father
circa 50 CE – 2000 CE
Fifth Spiritual Paradigm:
Epoch of Enlightenment
very soon, we hope!

Yet, these assembled enlightened teachers also have an urgent warning: We shall not survive this critical juncture of human history nor reach our God-given potential unless we embrace each other, our planet, and our animals. Therefore, until a unifying theosophy emerges, we should adopt the simple yet elusive … Religion of Love.
