Reflections on Love

In light of Valentine’s Day, here are a bunch of my favorite spiritual quotes and reflections about love and romantic relationships. I hope it inspires you, and that you have a beautiful, uplifting day (or, if you don’t, I hope that your day becomes uplifted)!


“My primary relationship is with myself–all others are mirrors of it. As I learn to love myself, I automatically receive the love and appreciation that I desire from others. If I am committed to myself and to living my truth, I will attract others with equal commitment. My willingness to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy with another. As I learn to love myself, I receive the love I desire from others.”
— Shakti Gawain
