Harmony

26 Jun

“And watch two men washing clothes,
one makes dry clothes wet. The other makes wet clothes dry. they seem to be thwarting each other, but their work is a perfect harmony.

Every holy person seems to have a different doctrine and practice, but there’s really only one work.” 
― Rumi

“A soul mate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communication and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. This kind of relationship is so important to the soul that many have said there is nothing more precious in life.” 
― Thomas Moore

“Genuine love is rarely an emotional space where needs are instantly gratified. To know love we have to invest time and commitment…’dreaming that love will save us, solve all our problems or provide a steady state of bliss or security only keeps us stuck in wishful fantasy, undermining the real power of the love — which is to transform us.’ Many people want love to function like a drug, giving them an immediate and sustained high. They want to do nothing, just passively receive the good feeling.” 
― bell hooks

    Lovely…and so true. Love is work. Finding your soul mate may take a lifetime…and blending two strong spirits into one harmonious whole? The most blessed of life goals.

    I wish you the fullness of all three, for you and your Sir X.

    Blessed be, heartsister…

    Balm on a crazy sort of day. Love is not about entitlement, but understanding and acceptance. 🙂 Hugs dear!
