The “old” me used to really enjoy romantic movies… I thought!
Being lonely and feeling undervalued, others’ romances allowed me to escape and fantasize.
THEN I had my eyes opened to what was really happening, what I was contributing to and participating in and how it was affecting me… and others… long-term.
Through enough deep and honest pure thought (“meditation”) applied to my life experience, I came to realize the True Objective for my life: “Emotional Mastery.” I came to see that all “religions,” science, myths, deep and honest self-introspection, EVERYTHING flows from an original pure stream of pristine energy. Re-accessing this degree of purity requires overcoming the propensities and foibles of the “flesh.”
As my eyes opened further, I became enamored by the human condition and the lives of those around me, those who share Earth with me. I have released myself (with tremendous help from others who have been extricated) from the human condition. I see what others have not yet opened their own eyes to.
Pure L.O.V.E. is NOT “romantic!”
Pure L.O.V.E. sees and treats all others as one treats one’s Pure, Holy, and Divine Self: with honor, allowance, dignity, appreciation, and respect.
There is no “romance” in Pure L.O.V.E. Pure and holy L.O.V.E. is the Level Of Vibratory Excellence, or in brief, the exalted Power that comes from Pure and Aware Confidence.
Romantic may be understood as: “suggestive of an idealized view of reality; idyllic, picturesque, fairy-tale.” Except for during “fantasy”/ “romantic” movies, LIFE IS *NOT* “idealized, “”picturesque, “fairy-tale.” Mortal life is, at least it is intended to be, an opportunity to prove to one’s self one’s level of humanity. As such, life presents each one of us experiences with paradoxical choices between alternatives that are often apparently contradictory, course and unrefined, difficult and requiring deep insight along with the ability to reason clearly.
Because of our “specie’s” mirror neurons, we have the capacity to view something (on a screen or in actual “real time”) and merge our experience (what we feel, think, and sense) along with the actual participant. As such, WE are the one taking part in the action! While watching a movie, the very same areas of the brain are stimulated by watching a passionate kiss as participating (physically) our self in a passionate kiss. The same neural chemicals are flooding the body, the same desires, even the same bodily responses. (Ahem….) As such, that which we originally understood to be “just a movie” BECOMES OUR LIFE EXPERIENCE!
Movie cameras sensually span the human body, costumers knowingly seductively dress the actresses and actors in ways meant to stimulate your neural juices to flow and create addiction all while objectifying human beings (usually women) and creating more fixation in one’s “conscious” life on people as objects to be used and abused.
Two thousand years ahead of his time, the one known as “Jesus” knew this. He warned that to “lust after a woman in your heart” is to “commit adultery.” To COMMIT the act! “Jesus” knew that to want something and to think about it and mentally (or on an outer screen) view one’s self participating in the act IS TO *DO* THE ACT!
So… in addition to wronging your partner who trusts you to be faithful to him or her by coveting and being intimate with that (other) person (even if it is merely implied), who else do you wrong?
You wrong your children (neighbors, peers, etc.) by setting the example that those types of thoughts, viewings, desires and actions are appropriate! Thus, if “daddy” or “mommy” (neighbor or friend) watch (*DO*) those things, then I can, too! You have just established the “bar.”
You also wrong your Self! Yes.
And to your Self is where the GREATEST harm is done.
When the movie is over one is left with the residual imprinting of what is expected or desirable in one’s own life. “Sigh… I’ve got to find me some of that!” The surge of hormones has now built within YOU and have created a “need” to be “romantically” held and experience “intimacy,” being wanted and desired as the lives just explored.
Rarely does one realize that they are being manipulated by the *musical score, the *lyrics, the *subliminal messages, and all the other keys of *craftiness of the production crew WHO KNOW AND PLAY TO HUMAN LUSTS FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT.
When the “high” dissipates, as “reality” sets in and the neural chemicals subside… one sees one’s own partner who has cellulite and warts… or one’s lack of a partner. Unrest sets in. Life is common and dull in comparison. Despair is felt at the contrast. To absolve the disparity, romantic movies become like an addiction, a drug that says, “more, more, more.” “Turn back to me for a sequel and I will help you forget the drudgery of your life for another two hours. (Muttered quietly under their breath) Of course, for an exchange of money, that is.”
There is no lasciviousness in heaven!
There is no “wanting” or “longing,” no “sensuality” or viewing another as an “object” for one’s personal “needs”… in “heaven.”
In order to contribute to bringing forth a “heaven on earth” and to be included among the population who “will inherit the earth,” one must wean themselves from the desires propagated by “romantic movies” AND all scenes, thoughts, and avenues which implant seeds of carnality… no matter how “pure” they can be argued away.
So, in answer to your question:
I have come to see the error in my ways. I choose real-life interaction where I can emotionally elevate real feeling people and assist in other’s overcoming of their addictions and ignorance traps.
In my pursuit of Real Truth, I have given up everything. Crawling through the “eye of the needle,” I have learned the *mysteries* and am now giving my life to assist YOU to dis-cover Who *YOU* really are, along with your unique gift to offer humanity. As you learn to seek (in the right place and with purified intent), you WILL find treasures of lasting value, along with every promised reward. Together, we will establish a society of humane beings and live life ALIVE, on PURPOSE, and with a sociality unequaled… because we will each BE and view each other as equally and profoundly DIVINE! Please… catch this Hope and Vision and join with me.
