“..you have carefully hidden these things from wise and intellectual ones and have revealed them to young children…” Luke 10:21 “In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise” Proverbs 10:19 “..I will guard my ways, Lest I sin with my tongue; I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle, While the wicked are before me.” Psalm 39:1
Many may wonder secretly about the interaction between the top/down spectrum of spirit – intellect and feeling – soul in relationships. While one may be expecting wet passion, the seeming dryness of intellectuality may result in disillusionment; and while one maybe expecting tranquility, the seeming disturbance of feelings may induce a kind of fear in the relationship.
One partner may be at the border of the spiritual – intellect and feeling, not wholly separating the two; another partner may be non-intellectual or feeling.
These partners may form a secret alliance that may fail at some point in the course of the relationship. The feeling partner may glorify and seek the stability and support of the semi-intellectual, who may happen to be above the border of feelings. The two may escape goat others. Soon the semi-intellectual may become borderline-feel, and the supporting relationship may fail. The two may expect or seek one another’s intellect but may fail. Once glorified, the semi-intellectual at the border of feelings, may be demeaned by the feeling partner and vise versa.
The seeming fragile alliance may leave little for a stable identity between the two. Fear of humiliation -shame may form into a different alliance; i.e., to collude to become someone else. The two may form suspicious acts that may involve identity theft, (victim)impersonation, question traditions, norms, customs or defy treatments- while may revert back, ironically, to seek the natural– so to symbolically justify the feeling-outbreak that broke their relation in the first place. The two may preserve their alliance “symbolically” (e.g., tattoos, piercing, gangs, motorcycles, flight into nature).
Once the “symbolic” ways are depleted, the semi-intellectual may become self riotous in the “spiritual nature of being”; and the feeling-partner, seemingly subdued, may be triggered by the capricious – demeaning manner of the semi-intellectual; the feeling partner may exaggerate and verbally attack the capricious semi-intellectual partner. The capricious – demeaning – jokes may then shoot out of the borderline semi-intellectual. The emotional partner’s verbal attacks may then explode into physical battering; at that point a full blown mutual battering and harm may ensue.
Suspicious interactions may be from the border of intellect and the feelings.
