Insight of the week – Love and Sex
Love and Sex are not the same thing. You can experience both at the same time, but they are not the same thing.
My favorite definition of Love is acceptance. Not some feeling, not an experience, not anything other than unconditionally loving them. Accepting them for who they are and who they are not.
See most people live as if I love you as long as you do X, Y and Z. and they have their conditions. If you don't do one of those things they stop loving.
If love is truly just accepting someone, the beauty is you can love anyone and everyone. You just have to accept them for who they are and who they are not. Let them be who they are. This is love.
Sex is the actual physical act of sex. And that is it. A great example I heard once is most people look at sex like to slot machines facing each other hoping for a simultaneous jackpot. If that happens great, but it is not love.
