For me a bird may mean just a flight
And you may perceive it as joy and freedom
If we understand and accept just this difference
What a lovely relationship it would become!
“I will like you only if you will accept what I say. My meaning of things is more important than yours. So if you agree to this then come, hold my hand , we can be friends.” And the person in all his ignorance succumbs and accepts friendship and finds himself deteriorating rather than growing in friendship. Beware! If I have to accept everything that you say and if it’s always me who will have to take a back seat then tell me what will happen to my identity, my -self. No. I scream loudly- NO to such a relationship. Let us both enjoy a relationship which doesn’t demand, which just is; because it has to be;
because somewhere the roots are entangled. Or they are one. Let me enjoy thinking of the Rising Sun when you are lost in glittering Stars. It would be so beautiful. Come, take a plunge. An absolutely unconditional plunge. It demands only one thing – Courage..
Reminded me of what Khalil Gibran has said about relationships-
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
You have taken this thought to the next level by no just talking about giving each other personal space but also having a complimentary existence. This takes a relation to a new dimension all together.
