I want to love this man

I worship you
and I fear
how the blue light on your skin
makes me forget the pain I’ve seen

It’s too good to be true
this just can’t be you
you’re honey for my mind
of that sweet, overwhelming kind

who are you
fire, bright reflection?
oh how beautiful I feel
in the flaws of your perfection

letting go and I start to flow
mesmerised, electrified
giving in to the beauty
that is to watch you loving me

like twins in another place
who locked eyes and saw the same face
they were one before they were two
but finally forgot who was who

can I live up to your expectations
or, erm, do I really want to?
first I’m me, then I’m a woman
the one who gets to see that shall be my true man

my heart needs the space
to put you in its place
slowly
so I can love you truthfully

this is my bedtime prayer
in a scared whisper, I beg you
God teach us how to dance together
and show me how to love this man forever

What I’ve learned to be true.

Apathy and emotional overreaction are different sides of the same coin. Just like laughter and tears are both expressions of a release happening in the body, apathy and emotional overreaction are both expressions of the same egotistic tendency of the mind to be in control.

Run away from the past, and you’ll become disconnected. Run towards the future, and you’ll become too emotional. The only way to free ourselves is to let go, observe, and stop running away and towards experiences which never really happened, and never really will. The only true experience that we will ever have is happening right now. Now it’s gone. Wait, now it’s here again. Can you feel it?

Collective Consciousness

Relationships lead us to collective consciousness

I am you.
Every single bit of you, in my mind, in my body, in my spirit.

When we fall in love, we start noticing each other. We become aware of how beautiful this is, of how beautiful we are. When we are experiencing romantic love, our perception shifts and we’re suddenly able to feel things without fear, without judgement, without clothes.

But what has changed between the time when things were just okay to being absolutely stunning?

Me. I have changed.

Everything else is just as it used to be.

Romantic love is a glimpse of our collective consciousness.

It’s the rare chance we’ve been given to experience something bigger than ourselves – a strong sign that few people pay attention to. And it’s a pity that it happens so fast. Like a good drug, this feeling will eventually fade away, leaving behind the hangover feeling that what we felt wasn’t real. But it was. And more real than your tears.

But inevitably, when a relationship is over, most of us will be lead to despise the ex-lover, just like we despise the drug, not realising that the right person at the right time, like the drug, is the master key that allows us to open the door to real, pure love.

By understanding that the lover is not the love, but the vehicle to experience it, we will finally be able to love the person without restrains. We’ll no longer obsess about the lover, or limit ourselves to  the idea of love. We’ll simply love, together. And for a brief moment, we’ll understand the oneness of this all. And if we nurture this knowledge, this feeling can become our everyday reality. With or “without” that person. The door to Collective Consciousness has been opened.

Pure connection. Eternal truth. A relationship should never be forgotten, just like a master key should never be buried.

Let go of your ego. Why are you closing the door that you once opened together? you’ll find yourself desperately looking for the key to open it again soon. So unless you like this frivolous game, stop and realise that we are all the same.
