At the beginning and in the end, what matters most is how well did we love, how well did we live, how well did we recognize the precious, the beauty all around us, inside of us & in everyone & everything that exists, has ever existed or will ever exist, how unselfish we were, how compassionate we were, how caring & committed to easing the pain of others we were.
Did we stand up for others who, through no fault of their own, could not stand up for themselves? Did we lay it on the line when we witnessed injustice, oppression, abuse, illegal acts with significant if not far reaching consequences even when standing up could put us in clear & present danger?
Did we have the same regard & compassion for ourselves as we have had for others. And, how have we treated our most beloved? How have we loved & cared for our children, had endless patience & recognized when they were a dream between two lovers what a miracle they would be, how much they would teach us, how we could never imagine having lived a life without them in it, wanting for them to have a life filled with meaning, purpose, fufillment. How have we treated our family, listened to them, heard them, respected them & loved them for who they were.
Just as important, how well did we learn to have fun, to use our imagination,be creative, to explore & share our uniqueness & that of others.How well did we learn to play, & share, regardless of our age. How well did we listen to the most precious part of ourselves, the child who needs our attention, patience, love,support & the assurance that 'bad things' did not happen because of them, & the promise that we will never abandon them, that we will never abandon ourselves, or anyone & most important we'll never put anyone out of our hearts having learned to forgive, for without forgiveness this life hardens & embitters us, which is a betrayal of our compassion for ourselves .
I'm looking for the love of my life to share & explore every nuance of one another, to forever be fascinated, open, to be willing to go to the ends of the earth for one another, for those we love, to never leave anything left unsaid, to always think of one another before ourselves, always seeking to cherish those we love & intuitively being sensitive to one another's needs, and to have the capacity & resolve to be fully committed in our relationships which includes "in sickness & in health, til do death do us part".
I'm looking for you. I believe we find what we're looking for when we're not trying, yet remaining open to all.
I'm looking for a true beauty, a woman who is as striking in character as she is in presence, who is proud of who she is, as comfortable in torn jeans & a t-shirt as she is in dressing up as the occasion calls for, who is naturally beautiful & make up is completely optional. So, if this resonates with you, I'd love to hear from you. If not, I wish you all the best in following your bliss, for it doesn't get better than that.
