The Best Feeling in the World
    #2907284 - 07/20/04 02:49 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

...is not drugs, accomplishments, wealth, nirvana, enlightenment, accolades, entertainment or thrills, but holding closely the one that you love.

The proof is in the pudding.

I will have to ditto that.

Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.

And if you can't hold the one you love, holding frog would be a close second!  :cool:

Are you into love movies like "Ghost"? That pottery scene probably got you going, eh?  :wink:

enlightenment = having compassion for all living things
Niravana = sacrificing your existence to make the source of love stronger, never to exist again, renouncing the throne of the self and the universe

and hallucinogenic drugs can very easily lead to enlightenment

tell me what is love? Seriously! if its not what i think than i dont KNOW!!!!!

i thought it was the compassion for all things existing? i.e. loving all thing
or is love just meant to be directed at one entity?

and thats nice how you "(imagine frowning emoticon here)" instead of creating the universal symbol of "unhappiness"

kudos

i agree, but i'd have to modify that a bit for my own best feeling in the world.
-holding closely the one that i love and the one who loves me.

Reciprocal love?! *puzzled*

Then you are missing the joys of stalking.

OOISI, Swami is talking about the feelings that LOVE invokes. The love you feel holding the woman of your dreams in your arms, whether the woman is real or imagined. Hopefully she is real, becuase then the love is immense.

I understand that what you are speaking about (enlightenment = having compassion for all living things
Niravana = sacrificing your existence to make the source of love stronger, never to exist again, renouncing the throne of the self and the universe) all show love, but it's not the same kind of love.

The kind of love of which Swami is speaking is "eros" love. It is the love you feel when you kiss the woman for whom you feel a great deal of attraction for the first time.

It is the feeling of fire, and of wind, and is as old as time. It weakens the knees and instills a pit in one's stomach.

LOVE!!! Comprendes???

Are you trying to arouse me? (Nope - nothing happening. :frown:) Let me know when you publish your book of erotic poems. I will buy a copy.

Baby don't hurt me, no mo'

When I was a young boy,
Said put away those young boy ways
Now that I?m gettin? older so much older (easy on the "getting older" part...)
I long all those young boy days
With a girl like you
With a girl like you
Lord knows there are things we can do, baby
Just me and you
Come on and make it a

CHORUS:
Hurt so good
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don?t feel like it should
You make it hurt so good

You don?t have to be so excitin? Just tryin? to give myself a little bit of fun, yeah
You always look so invitin? You ain?t as green as you are young
Hey baby it?s you
Come on girl now it?s you
Sink your teeth right through my bones, baby (Wow! That IS naughty!)
Let?s see what we can do
Come on and make it a

CHORUS:
Hurt so good
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don?t feel like it should
You make it hurt so good

I ain?t talkin? no big deals
I ain?t made no plans myself
I ain?t talkin? no high heels (Swami like high heels!)
Maybe we could walkin? around, all day long, (maybe in Laguna Beach...)
walkin? around, all day long

CHORUS:
Hurt so good
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don?t feel like it should
You make it hurt so good
Hurt so good
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don?t feel like it should
You make it hurt so good


Guess they don't use lubricant in the Mid-West... (uh oh - did this turn into an OTD thread?)

I would imagine that the best feeling in the world would be holding the person you love while on mushrooms, and maybe also while eating mangos and drinking absinthe... but that could just be me.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
"Fear is the great barrier to human growth." ~ Dr. Robert Monroe

Yeah, getting them to let you hold them is even harder. :wink: Maybe that's why it's so good.
