Anam Cara – your soul friend

“In everyone’s life, there is great need for an anam cara, a soul friend. In this love, you are understood as you are without mask or pretension. The superficial and functional lies and half-truths of social acquaintance fall away, you can be as you really are. Love allows understanding to dawn, and understanding is precious. Where you are understood, you are at home. Understanding nourishes belonging. When you really feel understood, you feel free to release yourself into the trust and shelter of the other person’s soul. This recognition is described in a beautiful line from Pablo Neruda: “You are like nobody since I love you.” This art of love discloses the special and sacred identity of the other person. Love is the only light that can truly read the secret signature of the other person’s individuality and soul. Love alone is literate in the world of origin; it can decipher identity and destiny.”
John O’Donohue

Peace and love to all…

and as the heaviness, oh the heaviness, the body settles in
somewhere you can hear a mother sing
♪then it’s one foot then the other
as you step out onto the road of hope

with such love and intensity

the beauty of the light upon this earth
and the sweetness of the leaving
