Being Together



I give you my heart, my love, my feelings…but don’t take my time, my direction, my interests.

You said you gave me your heart, your love, your feelings…but you don’t do what I say and don’t do what I want…what makes me happy.

I desire you, I want you, I like the way you talk and smile and the way you make love…I want to have you by my side for whatever the time arises when my senses need you…and so the same is with you.

And so the same is with you…within you.

Then Confusion marries them in a memorable ceremony while Selfishness and Egoism serve as witnesses and Guilt is taking the pictures.

Too sarcastic? Let’s try a different approach…

I admire you, I respect you; the things you do and the way you do them and spending time talking about your dreams and fears gives me the opportunity to try to help you achieve what you want; and when I see you so happy for your accomplishments I feel happy inside.

So helping you achieve becomes my achievement and your satisfaction and peace become my own satisfaction and peace.

And so the same is with you…within you.

Then Love married them in a memorable ceremony while Innocence and Honesty served as witnesses and Growth was taking the pictures.

And then the connection creates the mutual vibration that attracts the bodies in the physical plane so the physical contact enhances the relation between us to complement that connection.

So holding hands or kissing, an arm over the shoulder or sex, whatever the physical expression might be it only complements, rounds and perfect the feelings I have for you.

But then we have the differences.

Patience, understanding and acceptance are the tools to play with to reach a common ground where we both can play at home while continue to move forward together in a growing process to the end.

Two independent units purposely intersecting and realigning their paths; then they travel together in mutual cooperation to reach their personal dreams and the common one created by their relationship.

How’s that? Better?

What do you think?

    Your thoughts here are really interesting. I like the two takes you put into your writing. They both are very true in my experience and I suppose both versions are close to the truth depending on the time of day or season. What interesting way to look at things.

    I’d like to think the second version is the closer of the two in my experience, but I know that versions of both have existed at one time or another.
    Thanks for the mind candy. ;)

    Hi Lori,

    I guess is all about being human after all; both tendencies would exist in everyone and it’ll depend on each one of us which way we go.

    Thank you for your kind comments.

  2. Raul: This is my second read of this post because I was really intrigued. I thought you shared some really good insights and if I am being honest, I missed them on the first read:) However, on the 2nd go round I was like ohhhhh… I get it (and perhaps was a little slightly embarrassed that I missed them the first time). Beautiful words and beautiful point. I really liked what you said about mutual cooperation and working together to achieve and support each other’s personal goals.

    Hi Sibyl,

    Well, I tend to be sarcastic sometimes and that might make things more complicated but yes, it is about how some people, in my personal opinion, go in the wrong direction and get frustrated later by the results.

    Thank you for stopping by :)

    Some people collect experiences and contemplate their measurable value. Others do not think, question or compare. They do not want and remain content with nothing. As all activity ceases, restless is no more. Even when sitting silently, doing nothing, something indescribable expands within and nourishes the soul.

    Hi Raul,
    Regardless of what one perceives above the surface of the water, the depth of the ocean remains unchanged.

    Control in the outer world is limited. Mind translates the outer conditions into happiness and suffering. Behind every thought is pure awareness. As each thought is by nature, fleeting, change is always possible. Everything comes full circle.

    Hi Liara,

    Conditioning life to the outer, general rules, leave the inner self without the necessary guidance, then self growth stops and so does the capability for giving and receiving love.
