It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting

It begins with peeling away layers of debris

-with ascribing a true value to that which we call ‘self’

before looking for that partner that will stand by us in this life

-for only then will a union flame with fire

and only then will the universe recognise this power

When possibility becomes reality

we accept the love we think we deserve

 “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” The Alchemist by Paul Coelho
