The Lives of the Dead

Some of the most interesting people I meet are dead…

Love is the Way to the Truth

 Aya (a new voice)

I believe in the redemptive power of love. It is the prism through which everything passes. It is the path along which the most important lessons are learned. Love turns you inward; directs you to where the most important answers are.

When two people make a commitment to each other in love, that commitment is as much to themselves as to each other. It is a promise to grow and change; to bend to fit with an open heart; to see clearly both the good and bad in oneself;  to continually reevaluate beliefs; to rethink behaviors and view them from different perspectives; to see the world through another’s eyes.

To love is to commit to working on everything that prevents us from becoming our best self. We commit to knowing our own true self, and when we have discovered it, all things become clear. The result is true intimacy — with ourselves, with each other, with the universe.

In loving fully, we make ourselves whole.

  1. Thats all beautiful. There was a time when I could have written something as calmingly inspirational as that. Sometimes though, no matter how sincerely you contribute to life, you can get royally shafted. These things affect a person. Trying to live like they haven’t, is delusional. It’s not always easy to fight for the positive choice, or see what that is. Still, where there’s life there’s hope.
