Two is SO important in our culture. Two of us, the two of us, make a couple, which is assumed to be vastly superior to a single, no matter what the divorce statistics scream otherwise.
The truth is, in the final analysis it is just you and your soul. That’s the ultimate couple. If you have a relationship there, you are WAY ahead in the MEANING OF LIFE game.
You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.”
……..~Wendell Berry, A Place on Earth: A Novel
