Admit something: Everyone you see,
You say to them, “Love me.”
Of course you do not do this out loud,
Otherwise someone would call the cops.
Still though, think about this,
This great pull in us to connect.
Why not become the one who lives
With a full moon in each eye that is always saying,
With that sweet moon language,
What every other eye in this world is dying to hear?
– Hafiz & Daniel Ladinsky
Yes. That is the deepest longing in us, and it’s the deepest longing for all parts of us as well. Everyone and everything in us wish to be met in love. In a very real way, any experience is asking for love. And any action that comes from hurt or a sense of lack is asking for love.
