Reflection for today…No One Can Take Your Destined Lover -Italian Proverb & Goldfrapp

Have you ever reflected on the concept of soulmates?

Do they really exist?

Does life consist of destiny/fate or choices/free will?

Perhaps it is a mixture of both?

Something about this quote resonates with me. It feels true.

I heard a similar saying in Spanish {which I cannot remember right now}.

No one can take the one that is destined for you.

{The universe will unite you & this mysterious one eventually}.

What about fate itself?

Perhaps it is all a mental cul-de-sac?

For now, all I know is that we can relax and let life unfold naturally and organically.

Please enjoy Utopia by Goldfrapp…

Although the song’s true meaning is not related to soulmates, love or the quote mentioned above, its essence does.

The way that it makes me feel when I hear it reminds me of love, lovers and soul mates- especially when she sings,

“I forgot who I am when I’m with you.”

It alludes to one’s identity and ego dissolving in the presence of their beloved.

To me, that sounds powerful, esoteric and healing.

{Can you believe this song is twenty years old?

It sounds just as fresh and lovely as ever.

I deeply adore it}.

UTOPIA LYRICS

[Verse 1]
“It’s a strange day
No colours or shapes
No sound in my head
I forget who I am
When I’m with you
There’s no reason
There’s no sense
I’m not supposed to feel
I forget who I am
I forget

[Chorus]
Fascist baby
Utopia, utopia

[Verse 2]
My dog needs new ears
Make his eyes see forever
Make him live like me
Again and again

[Chorus]
Fascist baby
Utopia, utopia

[Bridge]
I’m wired to the world
That’s how I know everything
I’m superbrain
That’s how they made me

[Chorus]
Fascist baby
Utopia, utopia.”

“Utopia” is an epic, cinematic electronic song that heavily features Alison’s operatic vocals.”

On A Trip to Felt Mountain Alison explains what it is about:

“Utopia’s about genetics and cloning and the idea that – I mean, I’m not saying that this is right, but I’m playing with the idea that if we’re all striving to sort of be perfect and we want other people to look perfect, and we have this sort of body type that we’re supposed to aspire to, basically what I’m saying is that that is a form of fascism.”

Alison also commented on the song on Twitter during the lead-up to the release of The Singles:

“A story about an android born as a result of designer breeding in a utopian society. Feeling love for mortals is confusing for her.”

Reflection for today…Sexual Healing -Paulo Coelho

Sex, relaxation and tension

by Paulo Coelho on February 20, 2013

Men and women whisper to each other because they have turned a sacred gesture into a sinful act.

This is the world in which we live. And while robbing the present moment of its reality can be dangerous, disobedience can also be a virtue, when we know how to use it.

If two bodies merely join together, that is not sex, it is merely pleasure.

Sex goes far beyond pleasure.

In sex, relaxation and tension go hand in hand, as do pain and pleasure, shyness and the courage to go beyond one’s limits.

How can such opposing states exist in harmony together?

There is only one way: by surrendering yourself.

Because the act of surrender means: ‘I trust you.’

It isn’t enough to imagine everything that might happen if we allowed ourselves to join not just our bodies, but our souls as well.

Let us plunge together, then, down the dangerous path of surrender.

It may be dangerous, but it is the only path worth following.

Let us forget all that we are taught about how it is noble to give and humiliating to receive.

Because for most people, generosity consists only in giving, but receiving is also an act of love.

Allowing someone else to make us happy will make them happy too.”

“She says it helps with the lights out.

Her rabid glow is like braille to the night.

She swears I’m a slave to the details

But if your life is such a big joke, why should I care?
The clock is set for nine but you know you’re gonna make it eight.

So that you two can take some time, teach each other to reciprocate.
She feels that my sentimental side should be held with kid gloves

But she doesn’t know that I left my urge in the icebox.

She swears I’m just prey to the female,

Well then hook me up and throw me, baby cakes, cuz I like to get hooked.
The clock is set for nine but you know you’re gonna make it eight.

All the people that you’ve loved they’re all bound to leave some keepsakes.

I’ve been swinging all the time, think it’s time to learn your way.

I picture you and me together in the jungle it would be ok.
I’ll bring you when my lifeboat sails through the night

That is supposing that you don’t sleep tonight
It’s like learning a new language

Helps me catch up on my mime

If  you don’t bring up those lonely parts This could be a good time

It’s like learning a new language
You come here to me

We’ll collect those lonely parts and set them down

You come here to me
She says brief things, her love’s a pony

My love’s subliminal
She says brief things, her love’s a pony

My love’s subliminal.”
