The intimate touch of another soul is the most powerful antidote for the all-too-human experience of existence. It may be the most compelling and pleasurable experience there is.
So why do we spend so much of our time and energy avoiding intimacy by defending ourselves, being angry, critical, closed and judgmental - in short, blocking the experience that we most deeply want?
The answer is that we are wired to constantly reinforce our limited ego-based identity, our sense of who we are.
This ego-based identity plays a very important role in human life, but it does not have the power to love. Ego is all about the self. It can and does experience need, and need is often easy to mistake for love.
In order for us to fully experience love we must let go of our ego & embrace a different part of ourselves. That part which allows us to enhance our relationship with the inner self, express the potential of our essence, and fulfill our purpose.
