Within You

Within you is a place of love and grace.
It is a place without fear
where there is no need to defend or prove,
no need to lie or hide.
From this place spring words of truth,
actions of courage,
and a life of love.
Wait patiently for the voices of fear in your mind
to cease their frantic call to action.
Become awarre of what the next clear step
of love might be.

The Couple's Tao Te ching

Be patient with yourself! The qualities of a lover do not depend on externals. They take root in your own soul and grow as you attend to them. They alll lie within you.
