Is The Solution
you faced with challenges or problems, setbacks or misunderstandings
that seem beyond your ability to meet or solve?
you involved in businesses, groups or communities that face challenges
in relationships with other groups or communities that seem beyond
resolution and peaceful cooperation?
there situations in your life that are too confrontational or too
fraught with historical differences that seem insurmountable?
despite all self-reflection or measures you've undertaken to overcome
difficult relationships, you or a group you're involved in still
face relationship polarization, then Love is the Solution brings
essential, yet powerful guidance.
on his personal, close experience of deep, often terrible conflict
between people and communitiesincluding religious communitiesauthor
Nasser Zaghi crafts a series of solution keys based on a deeper
understanding of the nature and process of love.
Love is the Solution speaks to each person about understanding love
as a process of four principles: love, acceptance, fairness, doing
one's best. These four principles taken as life studies or meditations
and put into practice possess the power to transform problems and
challenges into conditions of understanding, harmony and cooperation.
Zaghi observes of his book: Over the past several years I have undertaken
extensive research into the problem of cultivating peace and happiness
for individuals and communities. In searching for a viable answer
to this question, I have studied various resources and interviewed
leaders in all fields of endeavorsincluding religion, politics,
and professional fieldsas well as persons suffering from serious
life problems. The conclusion I arrived at is that love is the solution.

his first bookafter twenty five years of watching suffering between
peoples and dialogue with many religious and social leadersNasser
Zaghi offers a collection of aphoristic statements crafted to awaken
a fresh understanding of love as a solution to conflict. Coming
out of the historical and galvanizing conflicts of Iran in the 1970's
Zaghi came to America to not only pursue financial stability, but
was often inspired to contemplate the nature of conflict between
individuals and communities that seemed hopelessly entangled in
discord and often abuse or conscienceless violence. He examined
historical patterns of conflict and misunderstanding between religious
groups and as well between individuals in contemporary settings.
were the hurdles to people beginning the process of understanding
differences and arriving at peaceful compromise or cooperation?
talking to religious leaders, historians, sociologists, politicians,
and a rich amalgam of ordinary yet informed people from many nationalities,
Zaghi began to realize that the convictions of love taught in all
religions and ethics teachings were being laid aside or applied
only within the group, and often not outside of the group. This
was not a new revelation, but he took it into his more contemplative
moments and formed four principles that he thought would inspire
a more essential conflict resolution: love, acceptance, fairness
and doing one's best.
four principles are given poignant expression in Love is the Solution,
a book that will inspire reflection upon some of the most important
dimensions of life that we often take for granted. These four principles
and Zaghi's further reflections on the nature of hatred may awaken
a sense of dedication to practice within yourself and within the
communities you are most involved in.
