If you are like me and you are really put off by the materialism surrounding our so called holidays – and the hype and the social pressure to celebrate on a particular day – here are some poems and sayings which may remind us of the true inspiration behind Valentine’s Day:
‘This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally to take a step without feet.’ Rumi
- If you can’t smell the fragrance
- Dont come into the garden of Love.
If you’re unwilling to undress
Don’t enter into the stream of Truth.
Stay where you are.
Don’t come our way. Rumi
‘You cannot have love through technique. You can have sensation through a technique, but that is not love. Love is something that cannot be told, that cannot be carried across through newspapers or through propaganda. It must be felt, it must be understood. But if you repeat love, love, love, it has no meaning. You will know of that love when the mind is quiet, when the mind is free from its conditioning, from its anxieties, from its fears. And it is that love which is the true revolution that will alter the whole process of our being .’ J. Krishnamurti
If you have a partner, you may like to come and have a couples Tantric Tuition session here at Tantric Massage London in Kensington, so that you can learn to give one another a tantric massage and express and experience your love for one another more fully – or if you do not have a partner, you could treat yourself to a tantric massage, either here at our place, or if you prefer, we could arrange a tantric massage outcall and have one of our masseuses come to your hotel and totally pamper you there.
