Nice Way of Putting It

"Bottom line is... we're around each other and... this thing, it grabs hold of us again... at the wrong place... at the wrong time... and we're dead." -Brokeback Mountain

What exactly is this thing that grabs hold of us? Are we helpless when it does?

It's the L word and yeah we are pretty much...helpless.

Love is what it is. It does not really matter who it is that your love or if society or religion thinks it is appropiate or even good. I have always thought that in love you can not play the safe game but that when you love you give it all, you believe all, and that you do not expect anything in return for your wages are in the very act of loving and that is enough.

I agree that's how one should love... freely...

However, I don't think we're helpless... sometimes we have to use our brains even when we're being magnetized at heart... :)

Sometimes it is more loving to let go than to hoard a love that best not be... This can happen when love is free.

What I meant to say with helpless love is that you can not raise a barrier between you and that person as to keep from getting hurt or out of distrust cause then is this really free (of fear) love.

I understand... there is a certain helplessness that is inherent to pure/free love... which is what you speak about... that surrender to love itself (as opposed to the other person), to following ur heart, to being faithful to yourself, is kinda part of the freedom kind...

It's like you say, when you let all the fears get in the way... it is no longer love... it gets like stashed somewhere because the ego imposes itself to avoid getting hurt... and the head full of worries...

But then like that there's no surrender. The flow of love coagulates... and the heart isn't listened to... and perhaps u don't go where ur meant to go. :)

What I meant is that despite where that thing pulls us, we're not blind. We do have to think about it before we just take the plunge. :) And if we don't, we always learn.

esto tiene q ver con la tan famosa frase de "si lo dejas libre y vuelve a ti, fueron hecho el uno para el otro y si no vuelve es pq nunca lo fue". cosa q es difícil de saber hasta q se experimenta. si te toca dejar libre a alguien nunca crees q volverá but u know what? puede ser q vuelva. be patient.
