What Does This Quote Mean to You?

Here's the new rule: break the wineglass, and fall towards the glassblower's breath.

To me it means sail freely, break with attachments and do not expect even that which formed them to restrain you.

You?

I like that.

For me it means to break free from the material, the world of senses and illusion and return to the Source.

for me, its mean, desiring to meet the almighty one. unity with God.

Perhaps the wine glass is the heart.

How much more do we need God when the heart is broken?

How could it not be broken?

Perhaps we only pretend that it is not.

And what is the source?

The source is that which breathes us

Oh Rabia, I am so happy that you have visited here and left a comment, because I had been to your blog some months ago but lost the link. Now I can visit your beautiful blogs again and read your precious writings and view your lovely images. Thank you so much.

Anonymous, Ooooo that is a lovely way of putting it. Indeed, a broken heart brings one nearer to God. It is sad to say that sometimes we only "need" God when we are down on our knees, but sometimes it takes a moment like that to awaken one to the spiritual realm.

Maybe this is another facet of the Dark Night of the Soul.

Yeah, what Kathy said. :) I couldn't have said it better.
