The Slow Love

There are movements of simplicity and slowness. They talk a lot of slow acts – like slow physical relationships – but not slow feelings, like slow love. Yet true feelings – beyond the infatuation – grow very slowly.

I feel that even slow movement concentrates on things – not relationships – and yet relationships are the quality in life that no physical and economical restriction touch- at least not any more than we allow them to. It is where we are the most equal. Nobody can own the love and monopolise it. We are all born with gift of it, even if some of us may lose it trough our life along our lives.

What it is difficult to understand in our hectic world is that it takes time and energy to form a lasting relationships. At first we feel the great high of falling in love – a lot alike being drugged (the chemical is related to amphetamine). It can last up to two years.

Somebody should form a movement of the slow love, aiming to give the relationships time that they need; allowing us to form lasting connections. Concentrating to appreciate, what we have been able to create, instead of running for fast attractions. Creating a lasting romance. Appreciating the feelings – not just the physical side (both are important) – of the relationships.

  2. I don’t intend to teach anybody. I only intend to learn myself. But if you learn something or have fun reading me, that’s cool too. 🙂
