I think it can. This has crossed my mind lately.
Well, when I was 21 I thought naively I didn't want to get married, then at 22 I first fell in love, to me that means I first had an opportunity to
fall deep into emotion because love in this direct form is an emotional charge. I went full throttle, pulled all the stops, and it didn't last long
but the most important thing I got out of it was that love can be used like a drug as crystal meth. Crystal meth is the most harmful drug in the world
to your soul and love is the best "thing" in the world for your soul, but amazingly they both have the same type of withdrawl effects and the same
high effects. Even more potent because it took me over a year to handle the withdrawl. It is much harder to use love as a drug, you need a person you
can fall in love with and a very good friendship in your relationship. Then it is not intimacy where the effects are directly enabled, but ironically
in your sleep. You may ask then how can you feel it, well it is very potent as we mentioned. It is through connecting with the subconscious of your
"soulmate" that the strong love enters your own system.
Oh, I won't ask how you can feel it. I know very well that you don't have to be in the throes of intimacy to feel love. I understand it's much more
complex than that. If intimacy was the only instance where you could feel the intoxication of love, then you could invoke it by simply being
intimate... because it would suggest that intimacy has some type of control over the emotion as opposed to vice versa. Some people do however think
that intimacy can invoke the intoxicating feeling of love because they learn through simple association in the experiences they have had... but they
might have to learn the hard way that it doesn't work like that. It can serve as a reminder... it can serve as a suggestion, but I believe it is also
built on something much more than that.
I do think you are very right about the withdrawals and I think in this world people are not aware enough of how emotional things... I want to say
emotional things but what I mean is where your spiritual existence is tied to your emotions because it seems more valid i guess. Your soul validates
some things in your existence more than some fleeting emotions. This is kind of going off on a tangent but I'm just not sure which word to use to
describe my main point because some emotions are sort of false or much less important than others.... less important to life or to others or to your
own soul... but anyway. The deep emotions that I am talking about... the more persistent ones or the ones that seem to carry more truth (although in
the grand scheme of all things ones true inner emotions may be nothing to the perspective of another soul or another understanding... so something
else may seem to lessen the "truth" in that emotion and that's why I say *emotions that are connected to and are validated by ones own soul*... and
perhaps the purity in a soul- apart from all the confusing mentality of the mind- IS capable of validating some things beyond our understanding
because it is not tainted by all worldly implications and conditions. The problem is that sometimes, it remains beyond our understanding and perhaps
that is a gap we should attempt to bridge... to have a better understanding of our own souls objectives, because a lot of times I think we betray our
own soul by getting caught up in the fleeting moments and compromises of this world and our own fleeting emotions. I also think our truer inner
emotions can overlap onto other things... project themselves onto other things and this could be bad or good I guess. Perhaps it can mislead one into
seeking a false fulfillment because the mind and the reality or the circumstances did not allow good comprehension of what the soul was asking for in
detail, but then again perhaps it is just a push in the direction to seek and even in a case of some type of overlap, things will be experienced and
learned by heeding the urges of the soul and even if you are not on the right path, you are closer than you were before to understanding.
I think that one can become very ill... perhaps even die when it's objectives appear impossible. I think this particular feeling is something I feel
probably more than i should. I see many impossibilities in this world and I often feel "tired of fighting" even though I haven't really been
fighting with anyone. I tend to overturn emotions like complete hopelessness in all things all across the world because of parallels that I see in
what I think is my own spiritual understanding. The whole thing seem to show a deadly flaw... a terrible joke of reality...a sense of doom for us all
and it's almost like I literally have to climb and pull my way out of a hole because the logic of my mind has spelled out failure, my heart feels
completely empty and my soul can't use my mind or my heart to connect to the world around me.... because it is on an ENTIRELY different path than
what the actuality of my life has been so far and I feel I do not belong here to the point where I would rather my body die than my soul feel
tormented by some sick universal joke that some evil has brought upon us all. i do believe that evil is there and has been putting many obstacles in
everyone's way and we do not have a good understanding of the nature of this evil and how to fight it. I believe that in truth it can be fought....
even small truths and other things of principle but this is a material world we live in and people are employed to lie and go against their principles
to uphold certain material aspects of this reality and it becomes very conflicting and seems that there is simply no winning against this evil that
has permeated into just about all of society... and if people could just understand these simple considerations and the gravity that it has n the very
soul... things would not be this way at all. We are soul sick. We drug ourselves with all sorts of things... not just physical things... because we
are sick in our souls. I think many live this way and go numb or get used to it. Many a miserable person has lead a seemingly good life but were not
able to answer to their own souls desires and lie in the death beds of old age... sad or angry and not at peace at all. I believe some people might
not as numb to the beckoning of their soul and it does the damage to them much more quickly even though it is a tragedy for all. I think you could be
the healthiest person in the world but if something goes horribly wrong with your spiritual existence you could easily become sick and even die in
even a very short period of time... if death is the only release for you and your soul is that desperate for relief... so that it can see again, so
that it can have another glimpse of the whole reality. I do believe it will and can destroy the body for just a spiritual "reboot" for those who are
THAT soul sick.... and I do believe that the objective in the spirit is to find a place of peace, love and contentment. not just love in ideals but it
longs to live a life of reassurance of reality... a "good" reality. A happy, comfortable one. Our species and just about all species in our world
are creatures that procreate through sex and we have desire and will to survive and some people complain that sex is plastered everyone in the media
and what not... and it is and sometimes in not such good ways but all these things are so deeply connected to our very beings... how could anyone
doubt the power that comes from answering to our hearts desires, our spirit's beckoning and the comfort and reassurance of our physical being. In my
opinion, it is connected to just about anything we know.
Yes, it is a powerful drug.
What you say about the subconscious is something I have not really analyzed. I feel I can relate to it but I have really thought about it's
mechanisms I guess. If there is anything you'd like to add I'd be interested in hearing it.
