Exploring Love, Devotion, and Surrender w/ Michael and slave/wife Serafina
Serafina,That's a very interesting question. I happen to be reading 'The Rug Maker of Mazair-E-Sharif' at this time and he writes, "...all that God asks of us is persistence..." I'm not sure that I agree but I would say that I do have the quality of persistence. Now, I am not at all unique to have that quality but perhaps I have my own unique blend of persistence in the way that I go about my life.It's quite an extraordinary thing to ponder - that we might all go about trying to live well, honestly and fruitfully, but for each person that means something just a little bit different. If you take the concept of love, we might all love someone but we all love someone just a little bit differently to the next person.Obituaries are a case in point. Writers tend to focus on the personal achievements of the person during their life but they always return to who they connected with; who they loved; who they left behind. We seek to be ourselves/unique but it is the connections we forge that bind us to the human race, I think.
