The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you: Rumi

When we realize that no human can give us the unconditional love we crave – not because they are reluctant, but because in finite form we are capable of only a limited love – the real quest begins…and if we are blessed, we realize that what we were seeking so desperately outside of ourselves was always within us. For me, Rumi’s final line – that lover’s are in each all along – corresponds to a profound statement made by Ramana Maharshi – that Infinite and Finite meet in the cave of our own Spiritual Heart – which process culminates in an eruption of unceasing LOVE. Thanks, Harsh Luthar!

The minute I heard my first love story

I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.
