People who find themselves alone rarely feel any incentive to explore love. They await contact with another person or turn out to seek it. Thus we become dependent on other people to make us feel totally and permanently loved. This expectation will, however, always be defeated, and although we blame those who failed to respond to us, who responded but then left, who stayed but then changed their minds, none of them is finally the cause of our problem. The cause is our inability to develop an unshakable relationship with ourselves.
—Deepak Chopra (via mindofataurus)
When love isn’t in our lives, it’s on the way; that is the nature of the universe. If you know a guest is coming at five o’clock, do you spend the day messing up the house? Of course not. You prepare. And that is what you should do for love.
—Marianne Williamson (via mindofataurus)
Lonely hearts in the pool of prosthetic love… not ready to love. Aching, searching, desiring and grasping to unfulfilled dreams and tantalizing fantasies. Living for yesterday, and not the day before tomorrow. Uncertain of what they truly need, while reaching out for all of their wants. What do you need… your soul that is?
