Waylon Lewis talks with author Danielle LaPorte about her (lovely) new book.

Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:

Inside a new Walk the Talk Show conversation with Waylon Lewis: he and longtime Elephriend and author, Danielle LaPorte, discuss love, reverence, making friends with ourselves, and metta meditation.

Waylon: “With your new book, you decided to tackle a little subject….”

Danielle: “Yeah.” 

Waylon: “Not a big, big deal. Just a little thing. A little thing called ‘Love.'”

“Most people who are getting into the whole ‘how to be loving’ content [in my book] are saying, ‘I thought this was a book about how to improve my relationships.’

It’s really a book about self-acceptance. And  if there’s more self-acceptance, then relationships are better.” ~ Danielle Laporte

Or, listen to the podcast:

Waylon: “We think selfishness is somehow gonna lead to happiness. But it never does.” 

Danielle: You know, this is why I love the Metta Bhavana prayer.” Watch the video to hear her practice the prayer with us. 

Share this! If it does well, we’ll feature it up!

Find Danielle on Instagram, here and on YouTube here. Follow her for continued empowering information. Check out her website or head here to get a sample chapter + audio of her latest book, How to be Loving.

“When we are conducting higher energy frequencies, virtues such as Love,
Compassion, and harmlessness, we begin to dissolve our lower, fear-based
energies. The higher subsumes the lower, and everything gets lifted into
Loving awareness.

When we understand that we’re divine energy beings and every single one
of us is here to help humanity ascend to higher levels of Love, then our
vanities and judgments seem . . . as petty as they are. A lot of what the
personality gives power to is inconsequential and meaningless. When you
know that you’ve incarnated to shine your eternally inextinguishable Light,
does it really matter what people think of you or the car you’re driving? Not
so much” ~ Danielle LaPorte, How to be Loving.


A note from Waylon:

Big news about my podcast, new YouTube channel.

Our podcast and video series are trying to start up again, with Molly’s help! Help support them by viewing, listening, sharing—we’ve received many requests over the last years for mindful tips and conversations and the podcast to return. Boom! I’m once again doing a convo/video/podcast once a week. Hope you give it a listen.

I’m leaving behind Elephant’s 35,000 subscribers (Google never let us monetize) and many millions of views—and I hope you’ll subscribe to my new channel here: I’ll upload at least one video a week about everyday mindfulness and eco and meditation and relationships and food and equality and politics from a non-hateful perspective, and all that good stuff.

⁠So, anyways, starting a new account. Subscribe! Support! Share! All the things. May it be of benefit! Be one of my first and comment if you do so.


For more mindful chats, go to elephantjournal.com/talkshow and follow us on Instagram at @walkthetalkshow.
