    The contradiction of our existence in this modern world is that we have created the age of the human mind where reason reigns, but have forgotten that of the human heart where love rules. We allowed the mind to enslave the heart. The consequence is a strange world we have created whereas objects are more appreciated then the unseen. Unfortunately this is the quality of the mind, to put everything upside down. We neglected our human soul, our eternal being for momentary objects such our bodies, thus forgetting our eternity by trying to replace it with perishable pleasures. Did not you offend and forgotten the Creator ( some call it God and others Nothing) by neglecting your inner self?

    So nice to occasionally chat online with my old friend from another gay site, Leandro. icon_biggrin.gif

    In pleasant counterpoint (and you must have known I would), I am reminded of the struggle it took for the Western Mind to create the Age of Reason. When emerging science began to replace superstition and mindless fear. Rule by the heart alone, and favoring emotion without enough input from the reasoning mind, has its own pitfalls. Religious fundamentalists of all faiths remind us of that even today.

    Yet the heart must have a place, of that I agree. Where there is the coldness of science, let there be the warmth of poetry to humanize & beautify that which is discovered. And where the straight world becomes mechanical & calculating, let the gay world be artistic & creative, and provide that soul you talk about. Maybe that's a reason we gays were evolved in the first place.

    As for love, well, I think we're social creatures, and always will be, and love is what binds us together first, and second and only reluctantly by means of cold measurements & ambitions. I, for one, though I live by logical reason, that helps me thread my way through a complex & technically confusing world, try to keep my heart open so that every now & then I can pause, and admire the beauty of it.

    Always a great pleasure to have the opportunity to exchange a few words with the dear Leandro. Peace. icon_biggrin.gif

    My dear Vespa I agree that there must be a balance of power, if you will, between reason and the heart! but listen, listen closely to the poem on this video and also to a Discovery Channel documentary about how the Universe came to be, and then give me your honest opinion as to which of the two impacted you the most!?

    I am human made not just of atoms but of feelings too! therefore I don't base my reality of how I was created but how I create myself in the now, not only through my own reality but also every other reality that influences my life. The reason of my reality have nothing to do with science, but with what my heart feels as it beats to rhythm of life. Life as I know is only possible thanks to anything that through the heart it gives a beat to my emotions.

    Looking at life through the magnifying glass of reason will only help me find answers to the wonders of the physical world, but it will not help me find the answers of the inner world that lies deep within my own which is mainly driven by the forces of love at this stage of my life! I am not religious nor an Atheist for the simple fact that I consider both extremes harmful to my passion and love for life in all its glory.

    I must confess you are the main reason I decided to joined RealJock!! I always enjoyed our conversations on the other failed website, and have also tried to absorb your conventional wisdom and advice. Thank you my dear friend, thank you!!

    hey ALEZANDER, in many ways we're on the same page, I write from a position of personal truth, so here:

    From The Silver Dish..a fairy tale for grown-ups. I've added author's notes so you can understand a little better what's going on:

    "“Ian” croaked Renot. Ian jumped.
    “Renot” he replied, in equally hoarse tones. Thus their introduction on the great Plains of Perception, so named by the people who had settled there. Ian regarded the face he’d seen in the cup. Renot looked back at this man who had seen Renot in the cup’s depths while holding it. The implications were not lost on him. And now Here this man was, Leaping (author's note:flying) after Renot as though he’d done it all his life, and directly speaking to Renot with Eyes (author's note: telepathy) only. Under it all a sense of vast Something ( author's note: the intent of their Maker -love), so large and deep no amount of exploring or imagining could ever define it. Mystery. A thrilling jolt of subconscious recognition swept him, head to toe. He became aware of a smile, spread across his face. Ian’s own grin answered. Automatically Ian raised his arm. Renot did the same and they shook hands in greeting. Pieces clicked into place, or so it felt. The entire world seemed to steady itself and a sense of wholeness engulfed them. Their hands separated only after both noticed them still connected and withdrew from each other in male self-consciousness. Renot scanned the plains for people; there were thankfully none, and spoke.

    “I know’’ he said, “that you will have a million questions for me. I too, have a few for you. "

    Oh yes!! the metaphors of human emotions are as infinite as the Universe itself my dear friend Doug! I believe in everything that comes from the heart, because not only is it made from the mechanics of science, but also from the unseen energies of a multitude of emotions such as are love and one's passion for life!

    Thank you for the above author's notes, it as brilliant and multidimensional as are the emotions of love itself! while today most humans thrive on the reasoning such as is self-preservation, love has always thrived on both reason and love. Love by any other name have no substitution or an explanation for what it is, it is simply felt and shared, and because it is a highly accessible knowledge is easily understood and shared by the most extraordinary to the most ordinary of peoples. Oh how sweet do love sounds in the heart when it is played through the instrument of romance with the musical notes from the written words of poetry!!
