The path to turning difficulties into successes isn’t always an obvious one, and in this heartfelt episode of her podcast series, Oprah Winfry speaks to Elizabeth Lesser about how to harness the healing power of love to change one’s life for the better and how the power of love can aid in cleansing important relationships, facing hardships head-on, and living every single day to the fullest.

Notable Excerpt: “I think [the phrase ‘the soul is covered in a thousand veils’] means that everything you need to know is in that line … What it means to me is that you have a soul, first of all, and that soul is like the music [that is] your song to sing here on this plane. That is your soul. It’s precious, it’s yours, it’s unique.”
