People always joke that "dog" spells "god" backwards. They should consider that it might be the higher power coming down to see just how well they do, what kind of people they are. The animals are right here, right in front of us. And how we treat these companions is a test. - Linda Blair
When you are truly ready to do your soul work, you will fall hopelessly in love and deal with every single hardship that engagement creates by becoming a better person - in such a way that not one soul is harmed, blamed or credited for anything that might happen to befall you, good, bad or indifferent.
More importantly, in learning the true nature of love, you will never fall out of love again. Love is not a state one can fall in or out of. LOVE IS a state of being. And that is the fine print.
