Take 16 minutes to watch this. Great short documentary.
"Everybody has the capacity to dream up and believe anything he wants to. The psychoanalysts would call it a ‘personal delusional system’, and you believe it because you choose to."
Slomo: The Man Who Skated Right Off the Grid | The New York Times (by The New York Times)
Intimacy is one of the last frontiers of human consciousness. In true intimate relationships, one experiences durable love, steady trust, and a willingness to be vulnerable. Durable intimacy requires a continual willingness to keep one’s heart open under any circumstances. Intimacy is not about having a fixed and secure relationship. It is about being willing to leap into the unknown with your intimate other; it is about being willing to face all the issues of the human condition with one’s partner, from birth to death; it includes healing the patterns of one’s family of origin. Relationship in this context is not about shaping a partner into your idea of who he or she should be, but supporting the partner in reaching full potential as a mature and aware human being. It is about helping your partner be the full wild woman or man each of us is meant to be. At the highest level, each inspires the other to move deeper into unity with the Divine.
