Context: When I listen to love, I am listening to my true nature. When I express love, I am expressing my true nature. All of us love. All of us do it more and more perfectly.

I plant the seeds of love in the hearts of others.

Context: I am the spouse. She took her necklace off And laid it in the sand. As I am, I am The spouse. She opened her stone-studded belt.

I am the woman stripped more nakedly Than nakedness, standing before an inflexible Order, saying I am the contemplated spouse.
