The body is like a Love letter:...by Rumi

The body is like a Love letter:
Look into it and see whether
it's worthy to be read by the Beloved..!

Go into a corner,
open the letter,
and read what is in it,

See whether its words are
suitable for royalty.

If it isn't suitable, tear it to pieces,
write another letter,
and remedy the fault.

But don't think it's easy to open
the letter of the body;

Otherwise everyone would readily
discover the secret of the heart.

How difficult it is to open that letter!
It's only for the strong,
not for those playing games..!

~ Rumi

  1. It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

    Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

    In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

    Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

    It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.

    And when you know how to satisfy this life long obsession...

    He will make it his life long mission to cherish and please you...

    And he will pursue your love to the ends of the earth.

    Here’s a video you won’t want to miss that shows you how to become your man’s deepest obsession:
