“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation
can that which is indestructible be found in us.“
“Sometimes the one who is running from the Life/Death/Life nature insists on thinking of love as a boon only. Yet love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship.”
The older I get, the more readily I believe in a few truisms:
- Life is not easy, happy, or fun…most of the time.
- Accept #1 and you will find happiness in moments, that feel like lifetimes.
- To love is to die a million deaths and to be reborn..between every beat of your heart.
- Never allow fear to dictate your desires.
It’s all about…skulls and pink bows.
