" Imagine finding a woman who has cultivated so much love,
that she has emerged a living conduit for it to course through,
residing in a constant state of outflow,
never expecting to receive,
because she is already so nourished from within and from Above, allowing her to receive you with immaculacy- without attachment-
when you do reflect love back.
Imagine finding a woman who has become light itself,
illuminating all around her,
her rays filtering their way into not just the windows you choose to open but seeping into each and every single
crack in your armor,
that you didn’t even know were there,
discovering with relief and terror that your shadows have nowhere left to hide.
Imagine finding a woman who is already married to God,
who looks to you for nothing more than your rawest,
most authentic self,
needing nothing of you,
but softly asking for,
seductively beckoning for he gift you’ve not yet given - the one that sits in the deepest part of you - that you have been afraid to retrieve, wanting only that, with no expectation
of what it will look like or what it even is, just that she’ll know it when she feels it.
Imagine finding a woman who has trained her eyes to see people’s souls,
upon whom your acting and posturing
has no effect other than to make her chuckle knowingly,
who loves your masks too, and lets you know sometimes gently and sometimes firmly, but always lovingly,when you’ve been wearing one for too long.
Imagine finding a woman
who has quietly tended to the garden of her soul so tenderly, and for so long, and with such bravery,
unafraid to water it with the tears of her soul-grief, planting the very
last seeds left in the pouch
of her heart, that the strength of her faith that they would grow into vines
that could reach up towards the light,
touch the light and become the light,
restores your own faith such that
you yourself are reborn as a Believer.
Imagine finding a woman who has found herself."
