"Love is a skill, a precious skill that can be learnt... We all have the syllabus of love right inside us, printed on every cell... They tell us that life has only one overriding purpose-to discover this source of infinite love, called in Sanskrit the Atman or Self, and then to express this love in daily living." - Eknarth Easwaren
There's a thread you follow. It goes among things that change. But it doesn't change. People wonder about what you are pursuing. You have to explain about the thread. But it is hard for others to see. While you hold it you can't get lost. Tragedies happen; people get hurt or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time's unfolding. you don't ever let go of the thread. - William Stafford
