It is to be completely overwhelmed by a sensation or an idea, to lose all resistance. To surrender to a color or a feeling, or another human being's face and eyes, another's touch. The overwhelming depth of my own love greets me as a stranger capable of dissolving me. How do we love? As human beings how do we go about loving each other? It has to be from our own vast hearts, open as our eyes are to the eyes of another. In a moment that feels like it could explode, and to hold on throughout it and trust it. We look away to protect our hearts precisely because we know their tenderness.
