As much as it is a little bittersweet to be ending the March theme of Books That Changed My Life, I am so f*cking excited to share this book with you. This beautiful work of magic and raw realness from Danielle LaPorte was not intended to be a part of this series, but I am incredibly happy + grateful the Universe aligned it.
White Hot Truth: Clarity for Keeping It Real on Your Spiritual Path from One Seeker to Another is an incredibly real and beautifully honest take on spirituality, life, and all things universally true. Amazon.com says, “Like a wise girlfriend you can totally relate to, Danielle cheerleads you to own your wisdom and self-worth by having a good laugh (and maybe a good cry) at the ways you’ve been trying to improve on your self-improvement. Rooted in compassion, feminism, and spiritual activism White Hot Truth is an intimate and (hilariously) relatable account of self-help tales gone wrong, and very right.”
In my blog about The Desire Map, I raved about how much I ADORE Danielle and her presence and her work. My love for her only grew deeper and more true within every page of White Hot Truth. White Hot Truth is easily one of my favorite books of spiritual exploration, because of how honest and human Danielle shares her stories + experiences.
I think my biggest takeaway from WHT was that spirituality is equally as human as it is transcendent. It’s beautiful, soulful and enlightening and it is also messy and painful and chaotic sometimes. White Hot Truth is a really beautiful book about giving light and loving – but in a way that is not ‘more light, more love, output all of the goodness’, it’s also ‘bring light to the dark, love extra on the messes of life, if you’re going to love – love it all, if you’re going to feel and grow, feel it all’. Which is really profound and honest. It is soul wrenchingly needed for the ‘trend’ of spirituality today.
As many others in the White Hot Truth launch team have said, “This is a book that needs more than one read.” And while the book isn’t quite out yet, you can preorder it here and get the free audio download here. White Hot Truth has also become a manifesto of sorts for me, or even a mantra at times. I will ask myself, “What is the White Hot Truth?”, when I am experiencing something funky or energetically off.
Now that I have shared a few favorite lines before I tie off this blog, I want to extend my greatest gratitude to Danielle and Team D for being so incredible. I would like to offer my deepest love to all of the other girl’s in the launch team, as well as to anyone else diving into this book and shifting their practice + spiritual outlooks.
