"The desire for wholeness"

"Adam and Eve had profound attraction to each other as a result of the fact that they were once one.

Two halves who seek to reunite is the essence of life and love; not the desire to know the other but to know one’s self, to make for wholeness.”

--Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz

From "Overcoming the Obstacles to Lower Unity" In the Beginning, pg. 223
