Song of Songs 8:6-7
Set me as a seal upon your heart,
As a seal upon your arm;
For Love is strong as Death,
Longing is fierce as Sheol.
Its arrows are arrows of fire,
Flames of the divine.
Deep waters cannot quench love,
Nor rivers sweep it away.
Were one to offer all the wealth of his house for love,
He would be utterly despised.
Surely, the past, present, and future connect in this miraculous state we call life. In this light, history and all human experience are ever-present. Wouldn't it be nice, then, if we could enjoy each other, if we could appreciate and celebrate our differences? Let us love! Let us have fun. Let us toast each other and wish each other well. Now, in our awareness, is the time to be happy, to do our best, to live fully to our purest, highest standards.
