What Are the 8 Habits of Love?

During the discussion, the guest explained just how he had actually been encouraged to come up with the eight habits of love based upon his lifelong quest for spiritual truths and his study of powerful spiritual people by Oprah Winfrey. She inspired him to write about his deep understanding of religious truths. Reverend Bacon found that the antithesis of living in fear is to exercise stillness, forgiveness, play, candor, generosity, forgiveness, compassion, and community.

Reverend Bacon said that we live in a culture that promotes fear-based thinking, and, in fact, vested interests find it profitable to keep the current culture of fear alive in society.

While fear did play a role in survival, as a momentary prompt in times of danger to decide whether to fight or flee, it had now become a pervasive state of mind in modern culture. The presence of fearful thinking led to reactive living because it stimulated the Reptilian Brain, our most primitive brain function. Alternatively, those who practiced love were able to access the higher order Mammalian Brain and Neocortex and live creative, successful lives.

The method to gain access to love is to exercise the essential pairing of generosity and stillness. Generosity is a deep way to associate with others. By working as an instrument of kindness, the crucial quality of the Universe, one is able to provide others with a blessing. Stillness, on the some other hand, helps an individual get replenished from within. It can easily be accessed by means of meditation, deep conscious breathing and additional spiritual methods. Cardoza shared that he experiences the strength of stillness through exercising 20 minutes of gratitude meditation early each morning and that this exercise creates just the right tone for the remainder of his day.
