Affirmations & Prayers
"You, I consider the most adorable
With your spring time skirt revealing your thighs
Bringing pain to my passion
Your waist resembles a supple willow
Your fragrance is like the orchid
And your face like a flower
There is not one bit of difference!
Night and day my thoughts are of you
When shall we imbibe the Ambrosia, Ambrosia?
Every one moment of this spring night
A thousand gold pieces could never buy!
Ming Dynasty Taoist Erotic Manual
"At breakfast, a lover asked her lover, a test:
Whom do you love more? Me or Yourself?
He replied, I'm so annihilated in you,
I'm filled with you from head to foot,
Nothings left of my own life but my name:
The rest is you. I'm dissolved like vinegar
In your ocean of burning honey,
I'm like a stone transformed into a ruby,
I've been filled with the sun's rays ."
Rumi ~ Sufi Poet

" Love is not the business of delicate people
Who fall asleep at the gathering.
Love is for brave ones, for wrestlers, o son."
Rumi ~ Sufi Poet
" Love does not consist in gazing at each other
But in looking outward together in the same direction."
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
"Here in this body are the sacred rivers;
Here are the sun and the moon,
As well as all the pilgrimage places.
I have not encounted another temple as blissful
as my own body"
"for what is the beloved?
She is that which I myself
In the act of love
I am pure male
And she is pure female.
She is she
and I am I
And clasped together with her,
I know how perfectly I am not her
How utterly we are two,
The light and the darkness,
And how infinitely and eternally
Not to be comprehended by either of us
Is the surpassing ONE we make"
D. H. Lawrence
"When there is great Love
There are always miracles."
"Move into the love act so deeply
That the actor is no more.
Become the caress;
Be the kiss."
"Give me a thousand kisses
Then a hundred,
Then another thousand,
Then a hundred more,
Then a thousand,
Followed by a hundred;
When we have added up many thousands,
We will muddle the score,
So that we lose count,
And no envious person,
Can cast the evil eye on us,
When they learn we have had so many kisses."
