When you start to really know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.
When you find yourself in a new situation…everything that requires healing is going to rush to the surface…and if you don’t take a minute to gather yourself, to breathe, to pray, you will do what you’ve always done…so you have to be grounded enough….to say, “How am I going to handle it this time?”.
