Settle for Less

as persons, we equate intimacy with the personal

the reverse is really the case

only the impersonal can really allow for intimacy

most couples "put out" to keep the agreement of enmeshment intact

it's scary to let that "meshing" come apart

but there are times

when you love the other to the core

without wanting or needing anything from them

a moment, here & there

a moment is enough to know

that that deeper connection is there

letting the moment be enough is hard

settling for less

always a little bit less

when we're programmed to always want more

is hard

we want to bring the deep into the shallow

to make what's fine coarse

in order to secure it

instead of dropping down to meet it

just drop through the thoughts and feelings

into what you know is true

settle for less

it would be beautiful if it was said by yourelf soule...Jason is saying this to BE himself and to others...

he is portraying beauty because of the power it allows him to have over himself and those around him....

he is efforting to be something beautiful for personal gain...

and he has gained in you your own beauty by attributing it to him...
