Friendship and Purpose

I know what it’s like to live under the impression that friendships need to be like business deals…to live with a mind that’s always scheming about how personal “connections” can serve the personal self. In my experience, I was unable to give or receive very much love as long as my attention was distracted...

Possessive Relationships

One thing that makes romantic partnership difficult is the idea of possessing one another. There is nothing that can be possessed…and I’ve found that it takes both partners allowing the other to be as the are for intimacy to deepen over time. In common relationships, there is romantic fire, which leads into two people...

Sex and Faking it

Through my early experiences in dating and relationships, I learned to pretend like I was enjoying sex even when I was not. I tried being honest about what sensations I was feeling up until I was about 21 years old, but after being rejected a few times for not “getting into it enough” with...

This is because I’m aware that every happening has but...

Death is an Illusion

There is no death. The idea that anyone can be put out of their misery is an illusion. The experience of pain and suffering without wisdom is what gives power to such an insane idea. In fact, the majority of human relationships to religion and spirituality are based on the concept that this life...
