    Profound concept of non-duality reality for Love and Joy and Pain are part of the same root.

    To be
    And oh, to lose

  • From ''Godless'', the movie (11/28/2017 1:59:00 AM)

    Tis a fearful thing to love
    To love what death can touch
    A fearful thing
    To love, to hope, to dream, ...to be

    To be, and know, ..to lose
    A thing for fools, ...this
    And a holy thing
    A holy thing, ... to love

    For your life is lived in me
    Your laugh once lifted me
    Your word was gift, ...to me
    To remember this, brings painful joy

    Tis a human thing, -love
    A holy thing
    To love what death has touched


    And

    Please explain to me why a poem concerning bin Laden's death and an anorexic cat lady are attributed to a man who lived in the 10th century. Yes... and why the photo?

    Very important scholar and poet, but this could not possibly be his portrait - it is a photo, and he was born in 1100s - almost certainly before glasses were invented.

Best Poem of Yehudah HaLevi

A Love Song

'Do you see over my shoulders falling,
Snake-like ringlets waving free?
Have no fear, for they are twisted
To allure you unto me.'

Thus she spoke, the gentle dove,
Listen to your plighted love:
'Oh, how long I wait, till my sweetheart comes back,' she said,
'Laying his caressing hand underneath my burning head.'

Marriage Song

Fair is my dove, my loved one,
None can with her compare:
Yea, comely as Jerusalem,
Like unto Tirzah fair.

Shall she in tents unstable
A wanderer abide,
While in my heart awaits her
A dwelling deep and wide?
