“You live that you may learn love. You love that you may learn to live. No other lesson is required of man.”
One soul connects to another. But the longing which the cerebral mind intended may end up being completely different from what it originally sought, for the soul requires and demands something more, so our longing evolves laced with these core request. Love born just of passion will fade. As love born to reconnect to the image of a life long dead may resurrect the past, but not create the bridge to our true self, thus depriving the soul of its initial search.
How do we get to the point where love is born of the moment, a true rebirth beyond a purely physical personification without the past to infiltrate the moment? The ability to evoke Hermes and seal all that was good and bad of the past is essential or we haven’t really beheld the essence of this journey. Only then will the powers of earth and the universe be at hand to guide us.
If the eyes see for the heart and the heart is an extension of the soul, then the soul is truly seeking its other, not just any other, it searches in this place and time. Thus our surprise at whom it seeks out is proof of the vastness and wisdom the soul encompasses. Proof of how we have only begun to search this canyon.
Maybe, in the end, love is a commitment to one’s soul. Now that it has led us to its heart desire; will we stay the course and decide to do all we can to complete the circle… the sacred joining of souls. The inevitable discovery that these two canyons map out is a noble journey, uncharted until now.
