Gotta Have Me Some Spice

My favorite kind of love affair:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is field. I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense.

~ Rumi

Yes! I know this feeling and I live for it...but am I able to stay in this feeling? No. And if this is my favorite love affair, why do I still reach for those passionate, knuckle-biting, dysfunctional, break-up-to-make-up relationships?

Because it makes life spicy and we are here for the full human experience. Who wants the same flavor everyday?

  1. Longing

    Longing is the core of mystery
    Longing it self brings the cure
    The only rule is suffer the pain

    Your desire must be disciplined
    and what you want to happen
    in time, sacrificed.
