Iris Aguila’s ‘To Love In Spite Of It All’ puts aside the typical Hollywood notion of “love” and relationships, to instead embroil readers in a tale rooted in new age fable and medieval myth. Through a journey that will have readers redefining their own lives, Iris leaves her audience wondering where the other half of their soul may be, if they’ve already found it – and what it means to truly love someone.
As anyone who has met “the one” knows, the moment is so perfect, they usually can’t even put it into words. And according to new age story, the other half of everyone’s soul is out there simply waiting to be discovered.
In ‘To Love In Spite Of It All’, by Iris Aguila, readers will be compelled to put everything they thought true about love and relationships aside. After all, they’re likely still on the journey…
Throughout our lives, we come across many people, many of whom are easily forgotten. But then we meet the 'one’, who is unlike any other.
Some may envision the one throughout their life, that special someone they feel destined to meet one day. It is believed that we were once one soul that was split into two twin soul halves. And despite their life apart from each other and the fact they develop as separate individuals, the two parts of the soul feel something is missing — something that was once a huge part of their lives. They struggle to comprehend what it is, so the journey to seek the missing piece that will complete the puzzle is inevitably ongoing.
And this path to reunion, to become one again, is possibly the most intense odyssey you can experience with another person.
At the beginning... When you come together in the relationship, she looks at you and becomes totally lost in you; you look into her eyes and get completely lost in them. So the game begins...of who will be the first to fall, the first to kiss, the first to tell, the first to go, the first to come back again and the first to remember that it all began with a dare...
“The answer is already within my readers, they just have to seek it,” explains the author. “I wanted to write something that would guide them on this most important of life’s journeys, through a mix of story, fable, myth and opportunities for their own inward reflection. At the very least, they’ll turn the last page understanding that love isn’t what it’s often made out to be…it’s much more innate.”
Continuing, “And remember, everything in life happens for a reason. Sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bad. How you think definitely affects the tangible outcome of actions.
