Nothing break a relationship faster than the feeling of invaded territory of his/her space. In every relationship, one’s need space of her own. How to defines space? it’s the very thin line that one must not cross. You know it if you really cared about your partner.
You were born together, and together you shall be forever more. You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days. Aye.. you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
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. Don’t you know that, even 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 and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
I’m teaching you the way ~ how can you love your partner and still not losing yourself.
I’m telling you that I love you even in time of separation.
I’m telling you how to love yourself when I’m not there to sing you a lullaby.
♥JM. During my selfless hours.
