“Choose Love is a powerful book that beautifully presents us with an accessible and potent key back to purpose and peace.”
In Choose Love, Darwin Stephenson shares a foundational principle of all great religious and spiritual teachings. We are made of Love and by choosing to live our lives from a place of Love, everything changes. We change and the world around us changes.
The introduction drew me in and I was curious to know more about Darwin and his experiences. It became apparent that his journey was a hero’s journey, lived with a passion and openness to finding his truth. It is, in fact, all of our truths and Darwin offers the reader a roadmap for discovering that truth by choosing love and consciously acting on it.
He offers us this imagining:
“…the path to success is not elusive but merely requires God’s loving energy to propel you up and forward. Now imagine that everyone lived their lives this way. Would the world be a better place? Of course, it would be; if we all chose Love all the time we would be better people and the world would be tremendously better than it is today.”
As someone who grew up embodying the ‘hippie’ values of peace and love, knowing they are intrinsic human values, I applaud Darwin for sharing his message of the power of Love. Especially at a time when our world needs to hear this and live this credo more than ever!
“Simple, profound and practical. Choose Love reminds us of the supreme power of choice and provides very practical tools to chart where our past choices have brought the health of our Body, Spirit and Mind Everyone needs reminders to return to the power of the Highest Love and to know we have the power to make better choices today than we have in the past.”
“Anyone who longs to discover authentic happiness will benefit from reading Choose Love. Darwin offers readers practical guidance, insights drawn from his personal experiences and simple exercises to delve into the terrain of the soul and its unlimited potential. Choose Love is a guide to looking within to discover purpose beyond societal dictates.”
“All you need is just Love, yet most of humanity is deprived of it. Love is not merely an emotion; it's energy, a source of light that ignites life. Love, unless chosen, can't be experienced. Darwin takes you through a journey wherein, out of the infinite ways to experience life and love, he provides a path to success and happiness.”
“Choose Love has the potential to empower you to live a purposeful life. Darwin’s writing is easy to understand and anyone can do the exercises to gain important self-knowledge that can bring them to seeing there are always choices. Love is a choice; but if you don’t see that then it is not. I especially like how Darwin understands youth. Yes, at a time when it is needed the most in our youth’s lives; there is a huge spiritual void that is not being met. Choose Love could easily be used to facilitate group work in any community.”
“A beautiful and enchanting book, Choose Love is insightful and Darwin’s story touched a very special place in my heart. Readers will love this book because it is easy to put into practice: live life with Love and let go of all that is holding you back in order to create a magical and purposeful future.”

“The compassionate messages found here are not only a great reminder to stay in the high-vibrating energy of love but also to simply be aware of the power you always have within. Choosing Love is indeed simply a choice!”
“You might think, as I did, that Choose Love will be a simple journey of understanding the place of Love in our lives. Oh no, it’s so much more than that, detailing how you can understand the past, current and future trajectory of your life, so that you can make changes as needed. Darwin offers provocative questions throughout, sure to evoke the kind of deep reflection so necessary to create a life of purpose.
I particularly loved what he says about the importance of inspiring our future leaders, our young people:
“Our global society has managed to inspire young people to lead purpose-driven lives but fails to introduce them to a Spiritual connection to achieve their hopes and dreams.”
Take that and run with it. Change is coming and it all comes down to the power of choosing Love — no matter what!”
“Choose Love is a fresh approach for those who seek answers to life’s purpose. Whether you’re feeling well struggling, his approach to tuning the Self is very helpful. Darwin reminds us that living our best life is better for our relationships and our community. Darwin’s nurturing prose and truth is a great add to your spiritual library.”
“Darwin asks us to examine the big questions: What is Love, Consciousness, Sense of Self and gives both wise advice and tools to help us overcome sleepwalking through our habitual lives.
If it's time for your wakeup call, choose Love can help you get on track to be the unlimited being that you are.”
“Darwin weaves a beautiful message from the 1st chapter till the end, step by step on how to do choose Love in our everyday life! He was divinely guided to write this from above, and it shows. We should ALWAYS choose Love!”
“A life without hope in a world of troubled times and despair where suicide and drug and alcohol overdose in on the rise, Darwin Stephenson in his book, choose Love, teaches us about free will and the gift of choice. He teaches us to seek self-reflection and to learn to choose Love in order to live a life of purpose. And in doing so, our loving actions will be aligned with Divine intent and happiness and success will prevail!”
“The true impact of Choose Love is heightened by the simplicity with which it is written. Choose Love is filled with guideposts to lead the reader to a joyous, peaceful, and unencumbered life. If only every human could learn to love with no conditions; what an immense difference it would make in our world's experiences. With the extinguishing of hate, war and all killing our energies could be used for the enthusiastic learning and exploring we came here to do. I congratulate Darwin for his no-punches-pulled approach to accessing pure Love!”
“Choose Love brings together so many aspects of how to live your life: heart-centered, loving and how to help others bring love into their lives. I especially found the Canvas chapter and the building of purposeful canvas for myself extremely valuable and enlightening. Realizing that everything is so connected and that love, pure Love, without strings, judgment or expectations can greatly improve your quality of life.”
“Delighted to support Darwin and his book choose Love. The longer I experience life-on-Earth, the clearer I am that the best we can do for ourselves and the planet is to, unfailingly, choose Love.”
“I did not choose to love this book, it simply happened! From the story of how choose Love came to be, and right through to the very last chapter, this book resonated with my soul. A simple yet insightful book to help us through this crazy thing called life.”
“Choose Love is a guide to help us build a life canvas to discover the joy in loving. Love, after all, is a verb.”
“Medicine for the soul. Such a timely written piece. Filled with so many nuggets, so much truth, and practical applications to ensure that you live life well. Darwin captures the essence of what it means to embrace life, see it for what it is, and make a conscious effort to choose Love. He draws from a myriad of experiences and places that, no matter what you believe, you walk away from this book with a renewed sense of purpose and direction.”
“Choose Love is the basis for how to accomplish, grow, and be far more. Following your pursuit of happiness is well laid out in this personal message of free will, choices, love, and joining together with others to be better.”
“What caught my attention in this interesting and thought-provoking book is charting your life course in the three areas - Body, Spirit and Mind. It is revealing, allowing us to learn more about ourselves and our choices, and an excellent start to chart a new course for your future.
I also enjoyed the three questions Darwin suggests to ask ourselves every night:
What have I done today to nurture my Body?
What have I done today to nurture my Spirit?
What have I done today to nurture my Mind?
If you wonder why you feel tired, sad or depleted, read Choose Love and get inspired to consistently nurture your Body, Spirit and Mind. Choose Love will keep you on the path to success and happiness!”
