Since years I have been interviewing men who seemed to be in happy relationships about the secret of their choice. “Why that woman? What does she give you?”… And you know there is a pretty common answer which I keep receiving from males of various cultural and social backgrounds.
There is one word which they all mean: inspiration. “She inspires me: She awakens my desire to live, to create, to move, to achieve….”
We are the INSPIRATION….amazing, isn’t it? Just think that this is probably the core of Femininity…
Here is what a saint says about Inspiration:
“Inspiration is a stream, a stream of wonder and bewilderment. The really inspired person, whether a writer, a poet, a composer, or whatever may be his work, when once he has received an inspiration, has found satisfaction – not with himself, but with what has come to him. It gives his soul such a relief, for the soul was drawing from something and that object from which it was drawing has yielded to the soul, has given it what it was asking for. Therefore inspiration may be called the soul’s reward…
This phenomenon is so great and so wonderful that its joy is unlike any other joy in the world.
It is in this joy that the inspirational genius experiences ecstasy.
It is a joy which is almost indescribable. It is an upliftment.” Hazrat Inayat Khan
