When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” – D. H. Lawrence
Intimacy can be scary, it means letting go of ourselves and allowing someone else in. There is always the possibility of being hurt and yet the rewards of allowing ourselves to be truly intimate with someone else are prenominal.
Intimacy is not just sexual in nature it is emotional, it is physical, it is communication of the purest level; but in the truest of situations we can openly be ourselves by putting aside our fears and blossoming like a flower.
And when you and your partner have achieved that level of intimacy then it is not sex, but truly making love.
Sex is more than an act of pleasure,
its’ the ability to be able to feel
so close to a person,
that it’s almost breathtaking
to the point you feel you can’t take it.
And at this moment you’re a part of them.
