Favorite quotes:

Love never hurts. What hurts is the fear of not being loved, insecurity about not deserving love, or some other resistance. Love is the greatest purifier, so it can stir up buried wounds, and then these hurt. It can’t be said, however, that love itself causes pain, because the essence of love is bliss.



You can influence a person back to good by your example, and you can improve a person’s energy if you know how. After that, everything depends upon the person’s own will. Changing someone who isn’t willing to change is impossible, even if you love that person from the depth of your heart.



What if you have been so hurt in the past that you are afraid to love? What you are afraid of is your own fear. Fear is an energy, so if you deal with that energy, love will come to you naturally.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399149481, Hardcover)

Struggling writer Jess Conover needs a job. But when he meets lovely, willowy Elena on a cold November night in Boston, he is swept into an age-old mystery instead.

At first he thinks that it is Elena herself who makes him feel as if his whole reality is about to be transformed. Then Jess discovers that this woman, who talks so knowingly about love, is the leader of a "mystery school" going back many centuries.

The Daughters of Joy, as they are called, serve Amor, the god of love. In the modern world, with its restless longing and terrifying violence, Amor may seem extinct. Yet the lessons of love have been passed on like a secret treasure from generation to generation. Jess is compelled to enter "the second world" that lies behind our own, a place nurtured and preserved by a handful of women who can guide him on this remarkable adventure of the heart.
