Which marriage is deeper: your marriage to your human, or your marriage to your own Soul?
Which one must come first?

I: What is that?
I: A concept of what?
You. It’s not so much a concept as it is a model.
I: Augustine’s Trinity Shield… His was a diagrammatical model for a certain “Self”; namely, God.
STAY RIGHT HERE

꩜: She loves another.
I: And? What of it?
꩜: And still you do not
I: And? What of it?
꩜: Why the anger? Why the pain? Do YOU love your Soul more than any other? Didn’t you betrothe yourself to HIM?

You know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” (John 14:15-18)
