A brief email from Caballo Blanco inspired me to respond with this:
Challenges are the training ground for restoring us to become the divine, loving beings we are destined to be.
Posting the quote as my status on Facebook (ironically enough if you see my prior post) instigated this:
Me: I do believe I’m learning more and more how to comfort myself…
Radt Dujarric: pa na platano y pa vacio jaiva!
“People with courage and character always seem sinister to the rest. Since the bourgeois prefers comfort to pleasure, convenience to liberty, and a pleasant temperature to the deathly inner consuming fire.. Solitude is independence.” ~Hermann Hesse
Me: I agree with much of that. A strong quote. But in the end I ask… is independence what we should truly be after? Or rather, is it LOVE?
Now LOVE doesn’t comply with preferring “comfort to pleasure, convenience to liberty, and a pleasant temperature to the deathly inner consuming fire” but it also doesn’t comply with “solitude.”
So perhaps instead of it being “A” or “B”… it’s simply “C”?
Radt Dujarric: depending on what kind of love… we all have our secret garden and sometimes love consumes your own by sacrificing it for the most common of the interests.
if by loving you manage to share the dreams besides the bed and remain being yourself … and keep your own inner space for yourself… then you’ve found it all.
Me: Wow. Beautiful Radt.
