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.

your true origin 

You think of yourself
as a citizen of the universe.
You think you belong 
to this world of dust and matter.
Out of this dust
you have created a personal image,
and have forgotten
about the essence of your true origin.
