Love is the soul's Rumi

Being closer and closer
is the desire of the body.
Don't wish for union!

There's a closeness beyond that.
Why would God want a second God ?

Fall in love in such a way
that it frees you from any connecting.

Love is the soul's light,
the taste of morning,
no me, no we,
no claim of being.

These words are the smoke
the fire gives off
as it absolves its defects,
as eyes in silence, tears, face.
Love cannot be said.

~ Rumi

    „If we enjoyed the thrill of falling in life as much as we do on a roller coaster, we would all be in a good mood right now.” Dr. Lisa Love
    Aren't we in a very good mood right now?
    I think we are.
    Love u! :-)
