Wisdom and Relationships: “More bitter than death”…those words capture what only “the heart can know”. The experiences that the heart searches for can be more perilous than the hazards of the mind. The heart is an untamable world, a wild stallion of impulse, desires and demands. It can ascend to great heights and fall to unbelievable depths. There’s a wisdom that can only come from loving someone else. To fully know ‘the scheme of things’ means one must venture outside oneself. To love, is to open oneself up to the possibilities of joy and suffering at a level that surpasses all else.
