To Love

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

These last few weeks have been an interesting period of life for me. Quite a few things are changing as the future is becoming the present and today becomes yesterday. While I do not have any fears or worries for my own future and life; it is in the hands of G-d and not my own. I have grown increasingly burdened for those around me and also my own family.

See, in our family, we have an interesting mix of individuals. However, the sense of connection felt with them has not really been what it has been in the past. As we grow up and move on to different journeys and paths in life, I realize just how easy it is to grow distant and removed due to a lack of commonalities, difficult schedules, and the overall splitting and separation caused by individual pursuits.

In the past, I have felt at peace about the different journeys we are undertaking; knowing we would one day return together and share the various stories and trials we encountered along our paths in life. However, it is in recent times that I begin to wonder how things will shake out. That’s just a fleeting thought, I suppose.

In other news, the next steps of life are looking to be relatively uncertain (as always) for me. Here it comes – However, I have never had more peace or presence of mind that all that is supposed to happen will happen in due time; success, love, enjoyment and all the other good things life brings along to those who take advantage of it.

Life calls (literally)…
