The Song of Solomon, Chapter Four

You are so beautiful, my darling, so very beautiful.

Your eyes are piercing behind your veil; your hair is so long and lush.

Your smile is bright and perfect.

Your lips are scarlet and so very kissable.

And I love how you blush as I speak to you of your beauty.

Your neck is graceful and proudly displays your collar.

Your breasts are for me to suck. I will have my way with your breasts and all the way down through your fragrant garden until the break of day.

My little darling, your body is perfect and lovely.

You are mine. I will take you away and free you. I will bring you higher than you have ever gone before. I will push you to limits you never knew existed.

You have taken my heart. You have excited me by the way you look at me so demurely and with how proudly you wear your collar.

You are so exquisitely beautiful and you are mine.

I am intoxicated by your beauty, your love, and your delectable scent.

I love your sweet tasting lips.

I love the feel and taste of your tongue swirling with mine.

You are mine and only mine. No other will touch you. I am the only one who will ever enjoy your delights.

The delights of your body are for my pleasure only.

You are the finest of delicacies and those delicacies are mine to posses so that your pleasure builds and then flows out of you like flowing streams.

 Pleasure has swept over me and I will come for you. The pleasure has built and is going to flow out. I am for your pleasure, Sir, my beloved, and all my delicacies are for you to eat.

 

Fear is the master at creating the illusion…

This came across my desk this morning and is so timely. Wise words from Brad Stevenson, who is a good friend of an old friend of mine (thanks, R):

“Fear is the master at creating the illusion that we believe we’ll lose something we have, or not get something we think we need or are entitled to. Shame is the great deceiver that tells so many people that they are flawed and that something is fundamentally wrong with them at the core of their being. “I believe these 2 toxins are woven into the fabric of the “Human Condition.”
I also believe that these core toxic energies carry destructive belief systems that create and perpetuate mistrust, dishonesty, resentment, hatred and blame. People will guard these beliefs with everything in their power as a way to not look bad”.

Consequently, it’s all too often that we experience in unhealthy relationships, the need to feel superior (masking a deep sense of inferiority) and project negative judgments, resentments and criticism onto others. Fear and shame are usually operating outside of the conscious scope of awareness, and are the driving forces that create poor relationships and personal upheaval and dissension.

They are also destructive forces within families as well. Living the THANKS® (Trustworthiness, Honesty, Amends, Neutrality, Kindness, and Surrender), paradigm is the antidote to these destructive forces of fear and shame, so long as they are used in a heartfelt manner.

Once you as a part of a relationship can fully understand your own underlying fear and shame, and can successfully utilize the principles in THANKS®, you will have much greater insight and understanding of the inner workings of your relationships. It will also increase your capacity for empathy and compassion which go a long way in the support of our family members, friends, and colleagues.”
