Love One Another

Love one another, but make not a bond of love
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other’s cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping;
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together yet not too near together;
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

-Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Poem translated from the Georgian above…

I am the Path
You walk Upon…
I am the Air
You breath…
I am the Tree
You cut…
I am the Fountain
Love drinks…
I am the silence that drowns the noise…
I am the Green, and Red, and Grey…
I am the Snow that melts,
and the White lost in shade…

I am the Woman in whom a Man lives…

I am the Leaf who flies,
and the Earth to whom we return…

I lay at your bare feet,
I want Your footprints on my heart…

I am your Pain
Your Bliss
Your Other…

You walk upon me…

How Beautiful….

Try it. See taste smell feel hear intuit heart vibrate dance breathe what happens and what is happening and what happened and what will happen. This is the sound of the river, the waterfall, the breeze, the tender silence. We are related and whole.
