love is so sacred

"To commit to love is fundamentally to commit to a life beyond dualism. That’s why love is so sacred in a culture of domination, because it simply begins to erode your dualisms: dualisms of black and white, male and female, right and wrong."

the grace of letting go

“the grace of letting go at the right moment—the ability to accept what is, to exhale, and to flow downstream with the cycles of life instead of battling them”
