The Wounded by Love Agreement
The Way I See It #76
“the irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating — in work, in play, in love. the act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around like rational hesitation. to commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life.” ~anne morris
It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions...
“Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish, Every sweet word will fade, But do not be disheartened, The source they come from is eternal, growing, Branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it.”

“I thought about one of my favorite Sufi poems, which says that God long ago drew a circle in the sand exactly around the spot where you are standing right now. I was never not coming here. This was never not going to happen.” — Elizabeth Gilbert The place where you are right now God circled on a map for you. Wherever your eyes and arms and heart can move against the earth and sky, the...

I Remember, Nikki Giovanni i remember learning you jump in your sleep and smile when you wake up at first you cuddle then one arm across my stomach then one leg touching my leg then you turn your back but you smile when you wake up i was surprised to know you don’t care if your amp burns all night and that you could play ohmeohmy over and over again just because you remembered i discovered...
-I have this feeling - that as you grow older, it becomes harder to feel 100 percent happy; you learn all the things that can go wrong; you become superstitious about tempting fate, about bringing disaster upon your life by accidentally feeling too good one day. -I tell you what : I give you all of my strength - I seal it inside a little green envelope and mail it to you with hope and peace...

If you trade security for freedom, then you start living.
“feel the wind blow our wanderin’ hearts like a feather but who knows what’s waiting in the wings of time dry your eyes we’re gonna go where we can shine and for all that we struggle for all we pretend you know, you know, you know it don’t come down to nothing except love in the end and ours is a road that is strewn with goodbyes but as it unfolds as it all...
Understand, I’ll slip quietly Away from the noisy crowd When I see the pale Stars rising, blooming over the oaks I’ll pursue solitary pathways Through the pale twilit meadows, With only this one dream: You come too. -Rainer Maria Rilke
The Dream Keeper
Bring me all of your dreams, You dreamer, Bring me all your Heart melodies That I may wrap them In a blue cloud-cloth Away from the too-rough fingers Of the world. Langston Hughes
So dig it: Outside of our sphere of thinking, things call to us. Rock ‘n’ roll calls to us. The road calls to us. Europe and Asia and Africa call to us. The moon and the stars call to us. Plants and animals call to us. Lovers and friends call to us. Trees call to us. We did not make all this up. It’s out there. It is just as alive and vital as we are. To pretend that we will...
Find a way to make the impossible a reality, because nothing is too big, too far, or too much, unless you decide it is. You can see what you already-know in a way you’ve never-before-seen by simply taking the world, turning it slightly and looking from a different angle.
Will the heart be steady and let this voyager be delivered, casting his anchor safely as Ulysses, unbewitched? Or will he give way to the siren songs of Aglaope and Parthenope, and the fickle winds that seduce men back to sea?

'Til Kingdom Come
Hold my head inside your hands, I need someone who understands. I need someone, someone who hears, For you, I’ve waited all these years. For you, I’d wait ‘til kingdom come. Until my day, my day is done. And say you’ll come, and set me free, Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me. In your tears and in your blood, In your fire and in your flood, I hear you...

freedom is a state of mind - not freedom from something but a sense of freedom, a freedom to doubt and question everything and therefore so intense, active and vigorous that it throws away every form of dependence, slavery, conformity and acceptance. -krishnamurti
