The general conception is that we will be whole when we find the perfect mate, but a wise person once told me that when the half that I am is whole, then I would find my other half. What a gift of thought that substance of heart is! And strangely enough, with all the looking, sometimes eyes are not open to it.
More recently I was told a story about the sun, the wind, and the rain having a discussion. The wind said he had blown across a deep dark shadow and try as he might, he couldn't dispel the darkness. So the rain said he would give it a shot, but he also soon returned glum, tearful, and defeated. They told the sun there was no way to solve the dilemma, so the sun went to check it out. He soon returned smiling. He said, I couldn't find a shadow! I think to fill someone's eyes with your heart may blind them at first with the radiance, but can't think of a better way to dispel the shadows!!! That substance is priceless. ~K
