It's a little like falling in love...

because it’s about the archetypical experience and so is falling in love.
If you’ve ever been in love, this is something that should make sense in an arena that usually is completely devoid of anything of the kind. The fact is falling in love is an experience that takes

total possession of

your entire being, leaving

your reeling mind

infatuated with an often completely

baseless

concern for only one
thing and for one thing only.

At the time you’re more than

likely to feel as though

this person has a deep significance for your life, that Fate is taking control, and yet the deeper significance never manifests. Looking back at the experience can vary anywhere from major heartache to wondering what the hell you were thinking.

     Of course the relationship can continue and even bear children, often seeming to fully justify its            significance. But even then, it always changes from the original state of “falling in love” to a much        more mundane state of affairs.

             At other times the result of the condition is just disasterous.

           Most people do experience this manic state at some point in their lives, often the love going unrequited. Clearly, the all too common condition has no track record of being meaningful for the lives of the participants. It often seems to go nowhere.
The reason for that is that it’s not about us. We are playing out an archetypical connection. Its significance goes far deeper than our lives. It can make us feel like we embody the gods…

That’s because that’s exactly what we’re doing.
