“Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.”
– Antoine de Saint Exupery
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
– Lao Tzu
“Life is a slumber of which love is the dream, and you will have lived if you have loved.”
– Alfred de Musset
One of my most favorite people in any lifetime once gave me a card that had three words on it: “to the dream”. Over the years, especially the last few, To The Dream has become a mantra, a mantra etched in my soul. It has encouraged, enveloped, calmed. It has delighted and ignited. It has held my hand in a soft kindness (and sometimes pulled me) to move out of “comfort”, “safety”, what I once believed possible. In order to move into the grace of allowing life, allowing it to unfold. It has been the compass, my compass through this adventure. This dream-full adventure into, for, with Love. Best gift ever.
