Love , Marriage and Modernity

Love of the Beloved and this wine, I will not leave behind
Repented a hundred times, but no more myself will bind.
Garden of Eden, Tree of Knowledge, and nymphs of Paradise
Will not compare to the clay of the abode of the undefined.


 Committed tells the story of one woman’s efforts through contemplation, historical study, and extensive conversationwith every soul she encounterd along the way to make peace with marriage before she entered its estate once more!

“May be creating a big enough space within your consciousness to hold and accept someone’s contradiction-someone’s idiocies even-is a kind of divine act. Perhaps transcendence can be found not only on solitary mountaintops or in monastic setting, but also at your own kitchen table, in the daily acceptance of your partner’s most tiresome irritating faults.” page 131 Committed
