If anyone thinks he needs more money
In order to fulfill the desires of the flesh.
His soul is burdened to find the means.
So day and night sleep escapes him
And in trying to gratify his fleshly desires
The soul is thereby enslaved.
We are taught that the soul is divine
And that it alone must rule the flesh.
For the soul and the flesh are opposites.
In most cases,
The person you are madly in love with
Is not likely to feel anything for you.
On the other hand,
The person you don’t find attractive –
Whom you hardly notice.
That’s the one willing to die with you.
Love, really, is a very strange thing.
And it often comes with some tragedy –
You remember Romeo and Juliet, don’t you?
Perhaps that’s why the heart beats faster
And the throat tightens and we tremble.
N: I read this somewhere and I think it worked for me: “Love is the affinity experienced between two people who are naturally able and willing to tune into one another’s emotional, intellectual, and physical states – and respond to them in a nurturing and a stimulating way.“
