Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralysed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds' wings. ~Rumi

Instead of suppressing our darkness and attempting to only rest in the light, it is essential that we embrace, integrate and balance all of our shades if we want to gain inner peace and receive the chance of connecting with our other half.

We often feel compelled to only express the light parts of ourselves due to fear that we will be rejected if anyone sees the broken fragments beneath the surface. However, in our terrified state we are also rejecting ourselves as well as those around us whose dark sides we witness...

The key to a soul connection is in accepting one another in our entirety and continuing to love regardless of all the imperfections that this person presents to us.

It is easy to love the qualities that reside in the light, our greatest challenge is also being able to love and accept those that reside in the darkness...

When we are able to love, not just others, but also ourselves, without conditions, expectations or attachments, we have then reached a heightened form of love. The toughest and most challenging part is maintaining it...
