“I don’t know what it is, and I don’t want to know because it’s too precious for me. I don’t want to destroy it by knowing it. I want to be in wonder the whole time.”  -Marne van den Heever

One of the people I follow on Patreon, Green Revolution, recently published this story about Marne and his dog Tripod.  When speaking about his relationship and love for Tripod and about how much this has changed and enriched his life, Marne said what is quoted above (Minute 3:19). I found what he said to be beautiful and true of all love.  Love changes us profoundly, whether given, received or mutual.  Words don’t convey the wonder of love, no matter how hard we may try.  But, we’ll always keep trying, so we’ll always have songs and poetry and great stories, like this one.

“As we seek this healing, let us do so with the knowledge that oneness is not sameness. It is the transcendence of our differences and the weaving of our diverse expressions into a tapestry that is harmonized and aligned with common purpose.”  -Sherri Mitchell, Sacred Instructions: Indigenous Wisdom for Living Spirit-Based Change
