Romance drugs us; love awakens us.

robertJust about anyone can get romantic, but far fewer can truly love and sustain love. Romance asks little more of us than popping a pill, but love — especially love in genuinely intimate relationship — asks for plenty, requiring not just our hearts but also our wakefulness, our integrity and discernment, and our on-tap capacity to both open and protect ourselves. Cutting through our romantic illusions does not, however, mean an end to relational magic; rather it means grounding our relationship in mutually awakened, truly intimate interrelatedness. Romance drugs us; love awakens us. ~Robert Augustus Masters
