I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.”
― Rumi, The Illuminated Rumi
Rumi is my favorite, but I also savor reading Rob Brezsny's "Free Will Astrology" musings each week. Here is what he wrote to Scorpios recently...sound advice for of any of us....
"According to the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, here's what God says to each of us: "Go the limits of your longing . . . Flare up like flame and make big shadows that I can move in. Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final." Whether or not you're on speaking terms with the Creator, this is excellent advice. It's time to give everything you have and take everything you need. Hold nothing back and open yourself as wide and wild as you dare. Explore the feeling of having nothing to lose and expect the arrivals of useful surprises." (The translation of Rilke's poem is by Anita Barrows and Joanna Macy.) http://www.freewillastrology.com/horoscopes/
WHO AM I?
I am a creative, optimistic, intelligent, aware, loving, affectionate, sensual, easy-going Woman. I'm pretty complex and putting it all in narrative form is challenging, so I will begin with a list...I am an Artist, Hug Giver (not just trees), Seeker, Reader, Teaser, Listener, Walker, Hiker, Lounger, Color Lover, Explorer of new places - I've been all over Europe from Scotland to Spain to Greece, traveled in Morocco and Tunisia, spent time in Thailand, Japan and Hong Kong, and enjoyed the wonders of Costa Rica - and this list continues to grow.
I AM SEEKING...
A long term relationship with a fun, intelligent, spiritual, sensual open-minded person who has a great sense of humor. Please be authentic, honest and ready for a meaningful relationship. I am not looking for physical perfection - nor do I offer it. Physique is secondary to your awareness, intellect, kind heart and passion for life!
The type of relationship I'm seeking was exquisitely written by RUMI, (clearly one of my favorite poets):
“I want to see you. Know your voice.
Recognize you when you first come 'round the corner.
Sense your scent when I come into a room you've just left.
Know the lift of your heel, the glide of your foot.
Become familiar with the way you purse your lips
then let them part, just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space and kiss you.
I want to know the joy
of how you whisper
