This is a beautiful,moving post from beloved online sister Debbie. Without any further words,enjoy!
''Everyone who grew up in Western civilization is intimately familiar with the classic romantic fairy tale. Boy meets girl, girl resists briefly, then they irresistibly fall in love, living happily ever after. Funny to think how we all grow up wanting our love lives to look like a typical Hollywood romantic comedy. Really funny when you discover there is something so much greater than such a fantasy, it can barely be put into words.
This is a love story that is quite different. It is made of Spirit and the magic that can happen when two human hearts are truly open to Soulmate Love and the Mystery of it All. It is a true story, although it may sound more like a dream.
Two people connect on a social networking site. Not unusual, yet completely extraordinary. Within very short order, they realize they have an incredibly powerful love connection ~ a "spiritual marriage" ~ that seemed to manifest out of nowhere. As their love story begins, it becomes evident to both they are in completely uncharted waters – emotionally and spiritually. Nonetheless, their new love was as undeniable as their very existence. They met and merged in a magical, cosmic explosion of love and pure bliss. They had no words sufficient to explain this experience to others, or even to themselves. Fortunately, they both happen to be poets, and their passion took on poetic expression ~ first, he wrote her a love poem; then her heart responded in kind.
These are the poems they wrote. No matter what you think of the who, how or why, you will undoubtedly feel the LOVE in their story. So sit back and enjoy. And know that without a doubt, you do not know what Love may have in store for you any more than they did.''
Do you think you know what Love is?
So did I.
My ignorance was not due to Love's obscurity,
but my own.
We know nothing of Love until it takes us;
then we know even less,
because the knower is annihilated -
a doomed star engulfed by it's own infinite black hole -
leaving only the super singularity of Love Eternal..
An unmet, far-away, one-in-ten billion
wise, whimsical, confident, healing girl/child/woman/goddess
meets me in her dreams, blows my mind, occupies my heart,
appreciating, understanding, loving me like no other,
secretly daring me to surrender.
Do I have a choice? (lol!)
Where have you been,
and why are you not here?
In a stroke of cosmic cleverness,
three thousand miles spontaneously evaporate.
Gone are sense and reason,
sanity and insanity,
time and history,
doubt, hope and fear,
youth, age, and death.
Miraculously, she is with me. She is me.
How astounding and holy and hilarious is this!?!
Who can we thank when sacred Love anoints us?
Happy New Life, Soul-Mate mine!
I/you/we have become The One Love Itself,
Manifesting, feeling most deeply
the spacious boundless empty/fullness
of the Universe,
celebrating the breath-stealing beauty of It All,
dancing in our exalted joy/bliss of Creation.
So Be It.

It's as if
each and every darkness
finally found its Light
each and every union
beyond this life
every single longing
met and fulfilled
and all the sweetest yearnings
It's the deepest feelings finally voiced,
(especially those unspoken)
This is what our Love is:
Eternal, Pure, Unbroken.
