You and I – 1 : https://experienceandembrace.wordpress.com/2019/01/23/you-and-i/
I: Have you ever lied to me?
You: I think so. But I think some lies might have been necessary.
I: Maybe. But when I know I was lied to, I feel differently towards those words I were told.
You: Well, feelings are weird creatures within. Aren’t they? How much do you think you understand how you feel. Rationale, on the other hand, gives you a way of reviewing them. If you see the utility of those lies, you might forgive me. Not that I care.
I: So, you are saying I needed to be in the delusion that very moment. Because you presupposed that I can’t handle the truth. That’s too much of an arrogance I would say.
You: You caught the asshole. But again I did it for what I felt right to do at that moment.
I: Well, acknowledge that you may have done a big mistake with your rational thoughts, your bag of ill-conceived ideas of me and my abilities.
You: I will have to think. Just calm down.
I: Okay. How do you stop craving something?
You: Depends on what you crave I guess. What do you crave?
I: I crave to recreate one memory. It’s this one time – I was with the girl I loved. It was in her apartment. She just came on top of me. I undressed her on the top and I kissed her breasts and she was holding my head. She was full of pleasure but she was calm like she was wanting it more and more. I have been with other girls after that, even probably tried to recreate with my feelings of guilt. But I no longer could, I never could feel the same way. I felt like I need her to recreate it, but I know it’s not possible. Maybe even with her. It’s probably will never be possible again. But I can’t stop craving. And every time I fail to recreate, I feel miserable.
You: It’s a memory you hold very dear to yourself. You know that you can’t recreate it so you will have to compartmentalize it. Somehow.. you will have to do it. Cravings are good. Just don’t let them kill you. You have seen the movie inception, right? Leonardo De Caprio’s wife Mal haunts him in his dreams. She is in his subconscious and he gets back to her through the elevator where she resides. Maybe because he can’t forgive himself. Nor is he willing to let the memories evaporate. He confines her, thus he gets himself confined even more ruthlessly. Do you think you might be doing the same?
I: Not intentionally as far as I can say. I started to realize that my desires are my enemies.
You: Because you can’t befriend them for some reasons. But that’s dreadful. You will have to be friends with them.
I: I see the futility in the harmony that you are asking me to have. Maybe I love chaos. Maybe that’s where I thrive.
You: It’s a choice ultimately. That’s just what I want you to know.
