As the full moon comes up to share its sweetness...

As you wander through this world, you might become aware of the most alive sadness filling your heart. This is not the sadness of the mind, where something is felt to be missing, but is a reflection of how precious it is here in a world of love. 

You find yourself more and more willing to touch and welcome your rawness and your tenderness, which is now becoming your home. You are moved to an outpouring of tears at a simple sunset, mad crazy in love with the one next to you, and taken to the ground as the full moon comes up to share its sweetness. 

Your heart may or may not ever break again, but you are willing to give it to this world, to others, and to the beloved, knowing that it may break, over and over and over into eternity. But, friend, not all is lost, this is no reason to despair, for it is through the cracks in your heart that love can find safe passage here.

Though the movement of the beloved one is infinite sweet and holding, in its essence it is everything. It is devastating as it is the end of one world, and glorious as it is the beginning of another.
