“Destiny itself is like a wonderful wide tapestry in which every thread is guided by an unspeakable tender hand, placed beside another thread and held and carried by a hundred others.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke
There has been so much talk about relationships coming and going, especially in the Second World. Heck, sometimes it’s rather comical to watch the: “dating”, “taken”, “engaged”, “unengaged”, “can’t stand the mofo’s” that glitter sparkly across friends Facebook pages from one day to the next. It’s almost like virtual people are oft more into “speed dating” relationships with a final fatal twist (I like to call it fast-food commitment) more than actual committed alliances. Sadly though, this sort of behavior seems to litter a lot of our first lives as well. I talk often about the tapestry of our soul and how I feel every experience we have from birth to childhood weaves a thread to this tapestry gleaning the work of art, our history, with the finest of silks and colors that we can’t even imagine and how as we age the people we touch, and who touch us, add a thread here and there and when we are gone the threads we have left on others souls is our legacy.
The thing is, I think this is specifically true of those we choose to love. No, not that speed dating sort of love that fills you with enough angst you feel the urge to hack your lunch to get your youthful girlish figure back, that’s not life, that’s fantasy, a nice diversion for some I suppose, but is it real? Love is a commitment and sure at times it’s fiery and strong, but other times the love with this same person runs a little thin too. No love is always as constantly powerful and heady as we would like, the tapestry would burn and over power the hearts eyes. The thing is, it’s in those worn thin spots that a person committed to love refuses to quit, they will keep trying, gently tying those thin little loose threads together to make them stronger, fortifying them in the process. The best part, when your tapestry is done, and you look back at what you have created with your life, your beautiful legacy, though when you look at the back side of your work, you can see and remember those slightly marred moments when you had to tie the little strands together, however from the front, there is nothing viewed but the carefully, thoughtfully woven tapestry of love you created together. Just makes me wonder what my legacy will look like. How about yours?
