Posts Tagged ‘Passion’

What if the heart could become unguarded.  Would you know how to handle the feelings that would flood within you?  What if the most powerful defense against death was complete and utter surrender to the ache of passion which begs, and tempts, and tugs at the veins without relent.

The true lover of knowledge naturally strives for truth, and is not content with common opinion, but soars with undimmed and unwearied passion till he grasps the essential nature of things.

All men fear death.  It’s a natural fear that consumes us all.  We fear death because we feel that we haven’t loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same.  However, when you make love with a truly great woman, one that deserves the utmost respect in this world and one that makes you feel truly powerful, that fear of death completely disappears.  Because when you are sharing your body and heart with a great woman the world fades away.  You two are the only ones in the entire universe.  You conquer what most lesser men have never conquered before, you have conquered a great woman’s heart, the most vulnerable thing she can offer to another.  Death no longer lingers in the mind.  Fear no longer clouds your heart.  Only passion for living, and for loving, become your sole reality.  This is no easy task for it takes insurmountable courage.  But remember this, for that moment when you are making love with a woman of true greatness you will feel immortal.  I believe that love that is true and real creates a respite from death.  All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing.
And when the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face like some rhino hunters I know or Belmonte, who is truly brave, it is because they love with sufficient passion to push death out of their minds.  Until it returns, as it does to all men.  And then you must make really good love again.  Think about it.
