When two rivers unite, they drop the boundaries of their name to just become one stream of flowing water.
When they say we ‘fall’ in love, they probably mean that boundaries of our ego just dissolve when we experience true love.
The other day, when I saw this couple sitting on edge of the lake with water gently stroking their feet, I was reminded of powerful lines that I had read recently:
You and I
Have to live
As if you and I
Of a “you”
– Rumi (via Omid Safi)
