You can keep company with a lovely person and feel lonely; you can reside in paradise and live in turmoil.
Don't fain love towards another because you can't be with the one you do love; that's narcissism from which stems severe heartache.
Don't go to paradise expecting your mind, heart and soul will follow; that's ignorance in which the bliss will soon subside.
Everything comes from where you are within. Know where you stand and hold your head up when you fall.
