The saint knows that the spiritual path is a sublime chess game with God and that
the beloved has just made such a fantastic move that the saint is now continually
tripping over joy and bursting out with laughter and saying 'I surrender!'
whereas my dear, I am afraid you still think you have a thousand serious moves."

"Seek deep within your inner self and magnify the many colorful layers within your magnificent and vibrant soul. Expose and express your bold and beautiful self by spreading your feathers freely and proudly like a peacock for all the world to see." -Melanie Moushigian Koulouris

When those you love die, the best you can do is honor their spirit for as long as you live. You make a commitment that you're going to take whatever lesson that person was trying to teach you, and you make it true in your own life...It's a positive way to keep their spirit alive in the world, by keeping it alive in yourself.
This week has been one of the saddest points of my life. My beloved grandmother (dad's mom) left us on Wednesday morning to rest in peace. It will take a long while for it to really sink in, for now it feels like a bad dream. She was one of the strongest women I have ever known and I hope to be just as strong as her one day God willing. ♡

One of the greatest gifts God has given me is the honor to be a sister. 14 years ago, my lil bro Amir joined our family and I have been head-over-heels in love ever since. Happy Birthday to my mini-me, my hero, and the one who always makes everything better. ♥ I can't imagine how it's going to be not being able to hug him every day once I move. :,-(

Let it ferment and season you
Something missing in my heart tonight
My need of God

When you're not here, I can't go to sleep.
Praise God for these two insomnias!
And the difference between them.
The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
We are the mirror as well as the face in it.
We are tasting the taste this minute
of eternity. We are pain
and what cures pain, both. We are
the sweet cold water and the jar that pours.
I want to hold you close like a lute, so we can cry out with loving.
You would rather throw stones at a mirror?
I am your mirror, and here are the stones.
To own or imprison,
Nor to lose one's self in another.
Love is to join and separate,
To walk alone and together,
To find a laughing freedom
That lonely isolation does not permit.
It is finally to be able
To be who we really are
No longer clinging in childish dependency
Nor docilely living separate lives in silence,
It is to be perfectly one's self
And perfectly joined in permanent commitment
To another--and to one's inner self.
Love only endures when it moves like waves,
Receding and returning gently or passionately,
Or moving lovingly like the tide
In the moon's own predictable harmony,
Because finally, despite a child's scars
Or an adult's deepest wounds,
They are openly free to be
Who they really are--and always secretly were,
In the very core of their being
Where true and lasting love can alone abide.
