We perceive that life unfolds in a linear fashion because our brain processes it one moment after another. But life itself is actually an infinitely complex dance in which we participate, but of which we catch only limited glimpses.
Those who live continually in love,
seldom talk about it.
It exists outside your
Yet fills up all that you are.
Too much talking hinders
your ability to hear it.
Spend a whole day with your beloved
Do not read, listen to radio or watch television.
Just be with each other and notice how you feel,
even when it seems strange,
Discover who you are
without all of these things.
Express your essence to each other wordlessly.
