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.
~ from “The Couples Tao Te Ching”
“My love for you only develops,
I cannot contain those feelings, hard as I try,
My body responds to you, I am an instrument,
And you are the virtuoso performer.
Our hearts are tuned, to play a melody,
So sweet – others who hear the song are uplifted.
We harmonize and love pours into a beautiful masterpiece.” LB
“Love sits right on the edge of all that you reject.”
The deeper that sorrow carves into us, the more joy we can contain. ~Kahlil Gibran
I am filled with you. Skin, blood, bone, brain and soul.
There’s no room for lack of trust, or trust. ~ Rumi
