natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.

Do real life people actually fall in love
with the idea of being in love?
Unfortunately, it is actually quite common.
Someone wants desperately to have

They knew that it was a mortal sin to marry
someone of a different skin color.

find an ample measure of my own joy.

Whether you have experienced a break up

whether you have lost a job.
Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.
