To live this life fully, we must dive in and love, over and over, letting it overcome us, letting it have its way with us. It may not last. We may get all busted up. It will get messy. Often it turns our world upside down, but on some level…. perhaps we all know we need this.
But an unexpected and amazing thing can happen. It almost always forces you to grow. To examine yourself. To acknowledge the humanness in all of us …and to forgive.
And somehow through the process, our hearts expand, even more than we thought possible. More than we ever planned. We become more compassionate, more human, more real, having gone though it.
But then, unexpectedly, there come moments of profound and deep connectedness.
Of joy, of lightness and laughter. Moments where you are in complete harmony with each other, filled will gratitude for the other person.
Somehow in those moments, it is all worth it.
I have been waiting for an excuse to try out this stone ground chocolate ordered from Ranch Gordo . The chocolate is made in Mexico, by women who grow their own cacao, harvest it, toast it and then stone grind it with a little hint of cinnamon. It’s lovely, rich and delicious.
