You Are What You Love makes Eastern mysticism friendly to the Western mind. Author Vaishali, an intellectual, yet highly irreverent mystic, magically mixes concepts and story-telling from such traditional sources as Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Sufism, with the ancient mystic, Emanuel Swedenborg. She also mixes in unconventional sources, such as Groucho Marx, Cheech and Chong, Jimi Hendrix, James Dean, and Homer Simpson. You Are What You Love empowers readers to befriend their minds and resolve their issues, instead of defending and justifying the limitations in their lives. Demonstrating how to transform limiting beliefs, this book delivers the secret to finding happiness and one's purpose-especially for those who have hit a pothole on the road to enlightenment. One of the most powerful points of the book is that "we do not have love, we are love. We don't earn it; we don't have to justify it; we don't have to wait until others decide we are good enough; we claim it because we are it."

I have never before read a book that changed my perspective on how I view life. Wow! And the best part is the book is easy to follow. I am not very advanced when it comes to spirituality, and Vaishali makes some difficult concepts understandable without talking down to the reader. One of the ways she does this is with stories at the end of every chapter which illustrate that chapter's ideas.
The first few chapters lay the groundwork for the rest of the book. So whatever you do, don't put it down. The payoff definitely comes, and in a very big way. Most Spiritual books have no practical application. In my opinion that makes them useless. This one is different. The chapters are laced with humor and usually end with true stories. These illustrate the spiritual concepts and show how people 'in far worse situations than I've ever been in' put them to use to change their lives. If you want to know what to do the next time you're at the grocery store and someone, with an overflowing shopping cart, first cuts in front of you at the 10 item or less 'cash only' checkout counter, then whips out their checkbook, BUY THE BOOK!
I heard the woman on a radio show and thought what she had to say was interesting tho I didn't quite understand what she was talking about. I bought 2 of her books and to be honest I haven't been able to get past page 10...Boring. I haven't even bothered to open the other book. I think these will both go in the yard sale pile. I should have checked them out of he library before spending my money.
