look inside..

We tend to almost deify our partners,
looking for the ‘magic’ in them..
seeing them in an ethereal light,
as if they could do no wrong.

We search and search for the wizard in the emerald city,
only to be disappointed when we realize that
behind the curtain
was just a man, or just a woman..
The ethereal becomes earthly
and we drop as if cast out of heaven.

We have to realize that the
magic we are seeking in the other
is within ourselves all along.

Ultimately, no one really does anything to us
that we do not allow.


“Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.
This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want,
you are already that.”
~ Rumi
