“Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal.
Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements.
Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness.
But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change.
It will not be broken;
it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.
To love is to be vulnerable.”

    thank you for nice post, Gracie

    I see the love as a light that is owned by no one, as birth that flies freely along the skies singing, but its song is heard by all, yet they cant catch the bird, nor the song, even filled with its dazzling melody.

    If they would but catch it, it will stop to sing…and there was no more joy to spread….

    Lets keep the love to be free as the bird in the skies, and its song will resonate in our hearts, to be heard by all, and fill the space with its fragrant melody.

    Your eloquent response provides a beautiful description – the image of free birds soaring through the skies singing their songs of joy is a lovely analogy, Vinayakah. You have a way with words that are insightful and enjoyable to read – thank you!

    Ah, so very true, we must live and allow all of the possibilities, those which we perceive as good as well as those which we perceive as bad.
