When we both experienced the love that consumes, we shared in the Absolute. The Absolute shows each of us who we really are; it is an enormous web of cause and effect, where every small gesture made by one person affects the life of someone else.

All it does is feed a constant desire to feel sorry for yourself, because you were the victim of people stronger than you.

Isn't that a waste of time?...It is human, but it's not intelligent or reasonable. Paulo Coelho
