12 Gorgeous Forms of Intimacy

Recommended Posts

KurtisM

I do not recall if I summarized this, or if it's directly from the session it comes from- but every time I read this I feel like life makes so much more sense and we're never really lost in our quarrels and struggles.
It's not really a quote, but it describes each of the 12 Forms of Intimacy that permeate this Universe and I find it so beautiful. I think I enjoy looking back at my own relationships and seeing what kinds of intimacy they revealed.

 

Quote


ESSENTIAL INTIMACY

  • "SENSUAL Intimacy is any form of touch, from the most sexual to the kindest of hugs. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in space."
  • "PERCEPTIONAL Intimacy is any form of shared perspective, shared truths, shared experiences. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in time."
  • "MUTUAL Intimacy is any form of shared support, exchanged help, sharing of resources. It is a form of Intimacy that brings Realization to your form in both space and time."

 

FUNCTIONAL INTIMACY

  • "PLAYFUL forms of Intimacy are with those whom you simply like to play. This is a form of Intimacy. It does not matter if you know one another beyond this; if you share in the joy of playing together, you are experiencing Intimacy. This gives Realization to the joy and pleasure of form in space."
  • "PROJECTIONAL forms of Intimacy are those where you share a common goal, common responsibilities, tasks, cause, agenda. It is what allows you to Realize your effectiveness of form in time."
  • "CORRECTIONAL forms of Intimacy are where you share in mistakes, failing, commiserating, empathy, recovery, and strengths. This form of Intimacy allows you to Realize both the joy and effectiveness of yourself in form through time and space. It is a direct path INTO WHATEVER IS BLOCKING YOUR BLISS."

 

TRANSFORMATIONAL INTIMACY

  • "PAINFUL forms of Intimacy are found in the sharing of friction, conflicts, resistance, combat, hatred, agitation, aggravation, annoyance, etc. The more a person prompts this in you, the more Intimate you are with them. This can be one of the most powerful forms of Intimacy to embrace, because this is where you can Realize WHAT YOU RESIST."
  • "BEAUTIFUL forms of Intimacy are with those who share in your tastes, your preferences, your patterns of preference, including music, art, nature, performances, and even in slang, language, culture, social behaviors and expressions. It is about SHARING in a pattern of preference between and for each other."
  • "TRUTHFUL forms of Intimacy are shared in a moment of utter honesty, even if unprompted, unsolicited, and uninvited. It is much like a child's honesty being expressed at the most inappropriate moment. This form of Intimacy is full of surprises and disorientation, and can come from anywhere, anytime, from anyone. It is dubbed as brutal or unleashed honesty by some."

 

DIRECTIONAL INTIMACY

  • "CATASTROPHIC Intimacy can bring together entire cities, cultures, and societies to a common ground of Intimacy. This is a kind of ultimate Realization of Oneness in form. On an individual level, this can be the intimacy shared with one who must heal you, or be healed by you, or be mutually healing, and there is a Realization of importance to each of you."
  • "PIVOTAL Intimacy is shared as cultures and societies evolve beyond limitations for who and how their peoples are treated, included, excluded, etc, and the move toward equality and enlightenment is secured. It is a form of growing up, maturing. And this is true on an individual level, as well. Pivotal Intimacy is when you finally "get" another person, perspective, or direction that was rejected by you in the past, or misunderstood, or ignored. Pivotal Intimacy is the realization of our evolution."
  • "UNCONDITIONAL Intimacy is in the sharing of spirituality, philosophies, the meaning of experiences, and the greater contexts of existence. We refer to this as "Unconditional" because in most instances where these things are shared, very little else is questioned about that person."

Well this Scholar cast Scholar feels like less of an F grade Intimacy subject student. I can say with certainty that I have experienced almost all of these variations. Knowing that even resistance to someone or something will be a cause for developing intimacy shows that resistance is futile lol. These buggers are everywhere. Everyone is an opportunity for intimacy, when viewed through the positive pole. Thanks Kurtis for posting this.

There is a book "The Seven Levels of Intimacy" by Matthew Kelly that describes intimacy in completely different language, but I thought would be interesting for you to learn about. It can only expand one's awareness of the topic and perhaps helps to make more connections.

 

Here is the excerpt that captures the gist of the book rather well.
