Soul Mates

My friend Glenda just this morning shared a story about the soul, which set me thinking about John O'Donohue's wonderful book Anam Cara. Here's a quote:

"Love is also a force of light and nurture that liberates you to inhabit to the full your own difference. There should be no imitation of each other; no need to be defensive or protective in each other's presence. Love should encourage and free you fully into your own potential." (p. 29)

Not that it's easy!
