I have been pondering lately about what love means to me. Now there are many kinds of love, but I am talking about falling in love. As I find that love now seems to have become lost. Lust being confused as love, the physical aspect overshadowing the emotional.
I believe in the soul. I believe, as Charlie Chaplin wrote to his daughter, “Your naked body should belong only to those who fall in love with your naked soul.”
You could be the most beautiful man in the world, but if I am unable to fall in love with your soul and you mine then love will not exist. Yes, it is important to be attracted to the person whom you are in a relationship with but if you don’t love their soul then you would be lying to yourself in thinking you love them. It saddens me that we have lost the timeless romance that once existed.
The world focuses so much on the physical aspects of a relationship, forgetting entirely that the soul exists. A lot of the time now it is about sex, that you would ‘tap that’, ‘fuck that’, ‘bang that’ and all the other meaningless terminology the world has come up with. Whatever happened to caring about who you share your bed with? Why do people care about adding a tally to the count? Your worth is not determined by the amount of people you have managed to sleep with (yes this may be directed to the males), and if you believe your worth is determined by that, then you have some serious soul searching to do. We need to stop treating people as objects being used for a purpose.
More people really should be more careful about who they share their energy with. You can believe that the sex is meaningless, and it might be but its not that simple. What you may not realize is that – with sex being such an intimate exchange between two people – you don’t need to be an empath to afterward walk away carrying the effects of that person’s energy with you.
“Pay attention to whom you share you intimate energy with. Intimacy at this level intertwines your aural energy with the aural energy of the other person. These powerful connections, regardless of how insignificant you think they are, leave spiritual debris, particularly within people who do not practice any type of cleansing, physical, emotional or otherwise.
The more you interact intimately with someone, the deeper the connection and the more of their aura is intertwined with yours. Imagine the confused aura of someone who sleeps with multiple people and carries around these multiple energies? What they may not realize is that others can feel that energy which can repel positive energy and attract negative energy into your life.
I always say, never sleep with someone you wouldn’t want to be.” – Lisa Chase Patterson
I want to be with someone who shows me their soul because they trust me to take care of it. Someone who wants to see my soul and not just my naked body. To smile with someone as we feel ourselves falling in love with the others soul. To share my bed with someone who doesn’t just want use my body for the act of sex, but someone who wants to cherish my body as we create an act of love and expose ourselves to a vulnerability that we both know is a trust of the other that runs deep to our very souls. Someone who will grow to respect me as much as I will grow to respect them. To be able to expose yourself and let them in on your darkest secrets all while knowing that it won’t change they way they look at you or feel about you one bit.
Now I must sound so very corny, like a hopeless romantic waiting for the impossible. But for me it is important to connect on that deep of level, and why should I settle for any less? Because when and if he comes around I would hope that he expects the same of me and knows that, in being with me, he also has not had to settle for any less.
Everyone wants to love and be loved, it is in our nature.
