|A TRIBUTE TO A WOMAN......and her MAN'S NAME IS JAY
***** excerpts form THE TREASURED WRITINGS OF KAHLIL GIBRAN *****
" LIFE TAKES US UP and bears us from one place to another; Fate moves us from one point to another. And we,caught up between these twain, hear dreadful voices and see on that which stands as a hindrance and obstacle in one path.
BEAUTY REVEALS HER BEAUTY to us as she sits on the throne of glory; but we approach her in the name of LUST, snatch off her Crown of Purity, and pollute her garment with our evil doing.
LOVED PASSES BY US, robed in meekness; but we flee from her in fear, or hide in the darkness; or else pursue her, to do evil in her name.
Even the wisest among us bows under the heavy weight of Love; but in truth she is light as the frolicsome breeze of Lebanon.
TRUTH CALLS TO US, drawn by the innocent laughter of a child., or the kiss of a Loved one; but we close the doors of affection in her face and deal with her as with an enemy.
WE CLING TO THE EARTH, while the Gate of the Heart of the Lord stands wide open.
WE TRAMPLE UPON the Bread of Life,
while Hunger ganws at our hearts.
HOW GOOD is LIFE to MAN;
yet HOW FAR REMOVED is MAN FROM LIFE!
MARRIAGE is the UNION OF TWO Divinities, that a third might be Born on earth.
It is the UNION of Two Souls in a strong LOVE for the ABOLISHMENT OF SEPARATENESS.
It is the Higher Unity which fuses the separate Unities within the two SPIRITIS.
It is the GOLDEN RING in a chain whose beginning is a GLANCE.,
and whose ending is ETERNITY.
It is the pure rain that falls from unblemished sky to fructify and bless
the fields fo DIVINE NATURE.
As the first glance from the eyes of the Beloved is like a seed sown in the human heart,
and the First Kiss of Her lips like a flower upon the branch of the TREE OF LIFE,
so the UNION OF TWO LOVERS in MARRIAGE is like THE FIRST FRUIT of the
first flower of the seed"
in the SPIRIT to YOU BOTH as I AM......TITO MEL
