Platonic Relationships / love

This is the ancient, philosophical interpretation And those who only know the non-platonic love have no need to talk of tragedy. In such love there can be no sort of tragedy. ― Leo Tolstoy,

Rate this:

Platonic love is a special emotional and spiritual relationship between two people who love and admire one another because of common interests, a spiritual connection, and similar worldviews. It does not involve any type of sexual involvement. Most friendships begin as either personal or professional.

It is named after Greek philosopher Plato, though the philosopher never used the term himself. Platonic love as devised by Plato concerns rising through levels of closeness to wisdom and true beauty from carnal attraction to individual bodies to attraction to souls, and eventually, union with the truth.

Stay alive forever!

You think you are alive
because you breathe air?
Shame on you,
that you are alive in such a limited way.
Don’t be without Love,
so you won’t feel dead.
Die in Love
and stay alive forever.

Pain will turn to medicine

Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet,

through Love all that is copper will be gold,

through Love all dregs will become wine,

through Love all pain will turn to medicine.

❤️❤️– Rumi

I swear !

I swear, since seeing Your face,

the whole world is fraud and fantasy

The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf or blossom.

The distracted birds

can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.

A house of love with no limits,

a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,

a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.

Rumi, The Divani Shamsi Tabriz XV
