“ So I have accepted that what I need is affection and understanding to build the bridge back to love.."
By the way we held each other, his touch and affection seemed so sincere and loving that it matched mine in its airy intensity. It felt like chanting or walking in the woods, but I was not alone. When someone falls out of love with you, it takes time and experience and tears and then more time to be able to fully accept another person anywhere near you, in your heart, your head or at the end of your fingertips. You feel guilt, longing and a loneliness that seems to take residence deep inside you and stake claim to any future happiness your head may imagine. So I have accepted that what I need is affection and understanding to build the bridge back to love, and Krishna has sent me a casting of souls to choose from. Some pass by, others stop for a minute, and a few may take up residence in my ever expanding heart. I am being shown this: love comes in a million different forms, and it lasts as long as it is meant to last. And two people are rarely in the exact same place at the exact same time. Unless they are. Then nothing old will be compared. Something new will spark its own joy. Then, and only then, will something wonderful take on a life of its own. It has very little to do with me, if I just allow it. And that is my plan.
