An inspiring love story for ourselves, each other and the world.
Love and Truth come alive as poignant and compelling characters in this timeless wisdom tale that touches the heart and wakens the soul of the world echoed within each of us. It is a story about the urge for togetherness pressed up against the longing for purpose....a search for the very things we may have willingly left behind...a tribute to the transformative power of compassion, the uncommon possibility of two, and what more we might become in the togetherness of remembering what matters most.
'In the beginning, Love and Truth were two halves of a seemingly perfect pair. Together with their different forms, yet sameness of heart, they were able to be and do all things in service to whomever they encountered...It seemed they would spend all eternity together opening what was closed, filling what was empty, healing what was broken and making crooked things straight. Then one day, Truth got an independent notion..."
