1. We’re so looking forward to your new book, “Live, Love, Soul” and would love a sneak peek, what can you tell us now? LIVE LOVE SOUL comes from the deepest essence of my own spiritual journey. I track back to the beginning of my book how I find out that I am in ‘search of happiness in the now’ and not from ambitions or accomplishments. After making many dreams of mine come true–from becoming an International Face Model, An actress, I wondered why reaching these goals did not necessarily equate to inner happiness. This was over 20 years ago. In LIVE LOVE SOUL, I share my own struggles, wins and defeats, while also sharing exercises that have helped me achieve my own inner peace. I also interview seven individuals, including you :), that share with me how they have found inner peace and passion in the midst of their own personal journey. A couple of very famous and and another is a matchmaker that just co-founded a successful on-line dating site, an author that has traveled to Peru, Brazil and around the world looking for the ‘happiness equation in civilizations’ and a doctor with that is a running expert. All of these interviews will encourage and inspire the reader to find their own inner rhythm in life that can help them discover more happiness. There is nothing wrong with searching out joy and happiness. But we must first know what our ‘inner-life’ desires in our soul to know what CAN make us happy.
Easter wisdom says that Zen is a living flower, a rose that last forever beginningless and endless-with petals that fall while new petals grow in a constant state of change. Yet at it’s center, Zen never changes. What aspect of our inner work has stayed with you and is a touchstone?
I spend time with only those that bring love and support into my life. I have weeded out the surface friends that don’t support my dreams. I exercise and spend time with my animals. I love my dog, Fortune and my kitties, Sophie and Lily. Never under estimate the love from your furbaby. They can turn your day around in a moment.
