What do you truly love?

  A friend of mine from high school, Dee Meyer, just sent out a beautiful quote by Rumi:  “Whatever you love, you are.”  It reminded me of another quote, which is perhaps the flip side of this, by Tennyson:  “I am a part of all that I have met.”  We love, and we become that which we love, and we, in turn, become part of that which loves us back.  Good, bad, or indifferent, it is not possible for us to go through our days and not leave a trace.  In sanskrit, the word for this  energy exchange or pulsation is “spanda.”  We live within this rhythm, touching not only people, but the world around us, in ways that often go by us unrecognized.  Perhaps today is the day to be intentional about what we love, how we love it, and the trace that we leave.
