To the Dream, Love

“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.
