A sacred disenchantment

It is inevitable on the path of love to feel surging waves of disappointment, as things never turn out quite the way we thought they would.

This disenchantment is not an error, but one of the great gifts of the beloved – to reveal the limitations of the conceptual and remind us of how open and creative each unfolding moment truly is.

Rather than struggle against the deflation, we may come to discover it as sacred. For if we provide a home for the death of an old dream, a womb will be prepared in which new forms of love may emerge.
