Love, No Matter What


True love goes deep into the

silently flowing river of our being.

That is how we are supposed to love,

when we go deep, when the river goes up

and shows up as tears, tears of inexpressible joy,

tears of vulnerability, tears of truth, tears of freedom,

because we are free to love, no matter what.
