The real union is of the minds, of the hearts. The physical part of it is temporary. One needs companionship at a deeper level.

Physical – body – looks
Mental – mind – intellect
Spiritual – heart – love

Physical union is easy to find. It brings us pleasure for a short time and then it is gone. We crave it more and more but eventually its effect wears out.
The union of minds is deeper. It grows beyond the appeal of physical beauty. Two minds making love create great ideas, ideas that can help a lot of people. It requires a higher level of thinking. It lasts longer than physical attraction. It is intense.
But true love is at a spiritual level. It is about feeling the beauty in everything around us and inside us. It stems from the heart and connects us all. Yes, we are all connected to each other already. Spiritual love is the ability to see that connection, it is the ability to feel the threads that string us together and yet allow us to suspend freely. It is the recognition that although we may seem different from others, we are just another image – just that the reflection is different. We no longer see through the eyes, we feel it in our hearts. That is the ultimate union.

 

親密

真正的結合是思想和心靈上。它的肉體部分是暫時的。一個人需要層次更深的伙伴關係。
物質 – 身體 – 外貌
精神 – 思想 – 知識
靈性 – 內心 – 愛情
物質層次的結合俯拾皆是。它能為我們帶來短暫快樂,然後就不見了。我們更加渴望它,但從其獲得的滿足最終會減退。
思想上的結合更具深度。它超越了物質層次的吸引。兩個熱戀中的思想可創造偉大想法幫助更多人。它需要高層次思維。它比身體上的吸引長久。而且激烈。
但真正的愛情是在靈性層面。它是感受我們周圍一切及內心之美麗。源自內心,並連接我們所有人。對了,我們已彼此連繫。靈性上的戀愛,就是看到這種連繫,感受你我之間的線縷,卻允許我們自由翱翔。儘管我們看起來大不同,我們只是一個個形象—只是倒影不同。我們不再憑肉眼去看,我們用心去感受。這是最終的結合。
