Intimacy flourishes through effort, but love itself grows effortlessly when both partners feel blessed by the sweet caress of joy in each other’s presence.
Joy is a nutrient of love: it makes love grow.
Communication is the linchpin of spiritual unions. No subject is off limits. Soulmates do not argue, they discuss.
The first duty of love is to listen.
Spiritual partners encourage their beloved to share their innermost thoughts and feelings, knowing that transparently revealing the essence of who they are is the bedrock of emotional intimacy.
Four of the most loving words in the world are: “Tell me about it.”
By definition, transparency requires absolute honesty. They understand that any short-term pain produced by speaking truthfully pales in comparison to the certain long-term damage wrought by the slightest hint of dishonesty.
Where there is love, there is pain.
They know that sharing what they are thinking is important, but not as important as sharing what they are feeling.
Only from the heart can you touch the sky.
