What Joins Us All in the Circle of Love
Life offers us many opportunities to commit in love, the best that we are. It offers opportunities for sharing, growth, and celebration from birth to death. Life marks the beginning of a journey and many mile markers along the way. Life is a physical and an emotional experience that is promised to us here on earth.
Within the circle of its love, life encompasses many important relationships: A wife and a husband, a father and mother, partners in relationships, and children. We can be best friends, confidants, lovers, teachers, listeners, and critics.
Sacred ceremonies deepen and enrich every facet of life. Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher, commitment is stronger, even sadness is felt more strongly, and passes away more quickly when we celebrate life’s mile markers in love.
Sacred ceremonies encourage and nurture new life, new experiences, and new ways of expressing a love that is deeper than life, deeper than passing from life.
Therefore, where there is love, there is created a spirit unique unto the relationship, which binds us closer than any spoken or written words. Sacred ceremonies promise to encourage the potential of love, even unto the passing from life on earth.
