The Sexual Shadow and Love

by Brett Kreiman

I think the biggest part of being human and making peace with our shadow and ego comes out of our need to feel that we are loved. Loved by others, and by ourselves. The search for love leads us down many winding paths.

We don’t know how to do that or what that really entails at first, so we inevitably head down many wrong paths and make many mistakes before we even begin to figure out how to get a clue! If we are lucky we are surrounded by a loving family and group of people who help us make a little headway in the act of how to search…unfortunately for almost all of us, that is not the case! We get love from our family if we are fortunate enough to be born into a loving one, but more often than not, they mean well but they themselves usually came out of the same confusion we were born into.

It’s just the state of the world we live in to be born into this chaos and confusion and try to make sense of it all. Hell, that’s why we are here!
