“It’s not about giving up on the fairy tale relationship. It’s about
landing it in reality. It’s about giving the fairy feet. It’s about peeling away the prince’s armor and loving the real being down below. It’s about wiping off the princess’ makeup and loving her divine humanness. It’s about finding romance in the naked fires of daily life. When our masks and disguises fall away, real love can reveal itself. Forget fairy tales, the human tale is much more satisfying. We just have to learn how to get turned on by humanness…”
(~an excerpt from ‘An Uncommon Bond’,)
We do need to learn to be turned by Humanness.
