Every human mind occupies a human body. Since you are the voice in your own head, the thinker and the storyteller, letâ€™s call you the mind. You are destined to reside within a human being and live only as long as your human lives. What is your relationship to this human being? Is it by any chance romantic?
Your constant and loyal partner throughout this existence has been the body you inhabit. It has seen you through, well, everything – good times, bad times, life threatening situations, inspirations, and private pain. You, on the other hand, have probably treated it with indifference at best. Itâ€™s far more likely that you have abused and disrespected the body for a lifetime. Both body and mind are the living representation of infinite life, one being made of matter and one clearly not. Each is necessary to the survival of the other. A mutual intimacy is unavoidable, but your communication leaves something to be desired â€“ and a relationship lives or dies on the quality of communication.
What sweet words are you whispering to your other half?Â What gestures of kindness and compassion does it receive from you, if any? I love you, spoken out loud several times a day, would make a really good impression.Â Thank you would be a stunning novelty. Appreciation never goes unappreciated. Forgive me would put things into dramatic perspective and also provide the best possible teaching. It might be that you have spent a lifetime dismissing your physical body, while expecting it to serve you in all ways at all times. You have spent a lifetime obsessing about yourself – you, the purveyor of thought. You have been boasting about yourself and railing against yourself and marketing yourself. In other words, you have been investing so much in what is not real that you have ignored what is real.
You, too, can eagerly submit, the way lovers submit to falling freely into love. But you let fear make your choices instead. Listen to the human body. Make modifications in thought and behavior for the sake of a great romance. Take the tyrant out of this relationship. You, the voice in your head – stop being such a bully. Stop needing to know. Stop needing to be right. Stop believing yourself. Get down. Bend a little. Put your head below your heart once in a while, just to see how it feels. Literally kiss the ground you walk on. Give yourself the time to feel true love wash through you and over you. Submit to the tidal wave. Yes, it will modify you – and it may, perhaps, obliterate you. You would be well advised to build a reality on that.
Our human quest to merge, life-to-life, is a divine directive. Birds, bees, bubble whales and buffalos wrap themselves around this truth without a story and without judgment. We are storytellers, however, and itâ€™s important that we use our great storytelling talents to drink in the liquid, life-giving nectar of divine romance. Whoâ€™s kissing you now? Whoâ€™s touching you, tasting you, whispering words of love and praise to you? Could it be you – joining forces with life itself, the lover of all things? Such a keen awareness of life, as it surges behind the stories, is romance in action. It is everyoneâ€™s destiny to be in love, without a doubt. So, kiss this precious human. Touch it, hold it, reassure and rediscover it. Give up all pretense and fall headlong and forever into love with it.
