Each person who comes to us is simultaneously in the process of leaving, voluntarily or involuntarily, sooner or later. I am not saying this fatalistically, only realistically. Nothing and no one can truly be captured. All we can do is love...which has absolutely nothing to do with possession. I see this to be one of the fundamental paradoxes of the universe: the only way to hold on, is to release...simply offering ourselves, regardless of the possibility of rejection or loss (which takes immense courage!). When we can mature into loving like this (which may take lifetimes!), then you may flow into me and I may flow into you- and we may both flow with the River of Life. Neither of us will be different yet we will never be the same again. We cannot understand this with the ego or mind....it's a Divine Code that can only be deciphered by the heart and then experienced by Souls which are ready.

Our relationships are contracts of the soul, pure and simple. Sometimes, the work is done early....sometimes it takes a lifetime. The key to Authentic Love is continual expansion and a deepening which is only possible, paradoxically, by being willing to let go. As we grow into the fullness of love, we are asked to find the courage to both passionately participate in the partnered dance and also to bless its dissolution, if this is what needs to happen. Wow....we are called upon to bless not only what and who comes to us.... but also that which, and those, who leave us, either by their choice or circumstance. In this way, we walk lightly on the earth and through our lives, engendering and experiencing the least amount of suffering possible- though certainly, there may be pain (which must also be embraced). Today, may we offer a prayer of compassion for ourselves and each other; may we remember that to be kind is superior always, to being right; may we never forget that we are all of us, souls on a Journey which is singular- companionship is a grace of the path, but not its destination.
Some time ago, I wrote this to someone and it seems fitting to say it again here. 'Some say love is holding on, some say letting go.....' I say it is a bit of both.
