A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more than you love me?
Beloved replied, I have died to myself and I live for you.
... I've disappeared from myself and my attributes,
I am present only for you.
I've forgotten all my learnings, but from knowing you I've become a scholar.
I've lost all my strength, but from your power I am able.
I love myself...I love you.
I love you...I love myself. ~ Rumi


And so this is how I feel and approach many in this and my world ... there are slightly different leanings toward different people ... but all in all ... I Love and I surrender myself to you and in that release I not only see/find you but I see/find my Self ...

The revelation is not to become lost or to capitulate, but to wander and marvel at the beauty One sees in the Other and know that it is reflected in the Self.

Sometimes I find my Self entwined and mixed in special blends with the others in my life [sometimes. yeah right. ok. pretty much all the time!] ... especially the Beloveds, the ones I hold most dear and treasured. The ones I am truly blessed to have with me on this life's journey.
Rumi shows the exquisite circle that love spins in us ... with the surrender of ourselves we become so much more in the release. We can become each other. Beautiful

Stay in Touch! Namaste

"In Kundalini Yoga practice there is acceptance and opening, not denial or rejection. As the higher centers open, the devotion one feels, the deep inner longing, are for the ever increasing experience of purity, lightness and Truth that begins to permeate them, versus images of devotion that often trap devotees into an imaged concept of God.

Shakti becomes Bhakti, and Bhakti becomes Gyan (Jnana), a realization of inner Wisdom and Self Knowledge that is beyond thought and conjecture, beyond endless intellectual discourse and argument, into which many other practices degenerate. The power of the discriminative mind emerges, a Force of Intelligence permeates and rivets the body and mind to the Spirit, and the pure mind inverts and reflects the True Self in the Heart. The ancient Sages and Yogis call this the Enlightenment of the Whole Body." ~ Understanding of the Active/Passive Aspect of Kundalini Yoga Practice: By Pieter Schoonheim Samara [via Luthar.com]
