If you want to know what love is...
It is like a moth to a flame.
Love will intoxicate you.
Love will consume you.
And eventually it will destroy you.
But then you wake up and remember who the real "You" is.
That's the miracle of love.
So very few get to experience it.
And yet it is the most natural thing in the world.
We settle for what is unnatural - for what is easy.
But that which is easy - is not that which is natural.
If you have trouble with this - think of plastic surgery - and compare it to Michelangelo's David...
That which is natural takes guts and hard work...dedication, discipline and austerity.
That which is effortless is of two levels: the superficial - the easy...
and the deep - which is much rarer...and takes great wisdom to discover.
They are like night and day.
Only one is made for sleep...one for activity.
Only direct perception can reveal that which is truly effortless...
