gathering honey

"there are such connections, which must be very great, an almost unbearable happiness, but they can occur only between very rich beings, between those who have become, each for their own sake, rich, calm, and concentrated; only if two worlds are wide and deep and individual can they be combined.
for the more we are, the richer everything we experience is. and those who want to have a deep love in their lives must collect and save for it, and gather honey."

"for the more we are, the richer everything we experience is..." - you can't know how timely coming across this particular sentiment is. Thank you again for the thoughtful things you post.
