Law of Attraction

It's funny but I'm attracted to most of the people I meet, most of the people I choose to work with. I look for something in them that resonates, find it and spark! I'm in attraction.

I used to mistake this for sexual attraction and wonder why I had a crush on such a large number of people. Acting on this attraction, however, was always a huge mistake. It destroyed the delicate balance, forcing the relationship into an area both coarse and sordid.

This form of attraction has really nothing to do with sex (except in that sex and creativity share a chakra). I think it's that I am searching for a way to relate to the people I have to deal with, and, being a journo (or an ex-journo at least), most of the people I met have been out of the ordinary.

People like being liked. They respond to genuine attraction.

So let me just say, I really really like you.

Really.

I was just thinking about this concept the other day. I was wondering why I was such a peerve: why did I have semi (not full blown) sexual fantasies about the people I like?

I really really like you, too ; )

It's good to feel that way about people.

btw glad to hear that freelancing is working out for you--I wish I could go back to that. These days, I miss it.

Warm and fuzzy feeling rising...rising...

Nessa: You're not a perve. You're just highly creative is all. (creativity and sex being linked so we sometimes mistake one for the other). At least that's what I tell myself...

"no matter when or how or who, it's a, it's a, it's a, it's a sin."

a thinker: Thanks. Yeah, I'd rather love everybody than hate them. The world is then tinged with gentler colours...and everybody and everything kinda loves you right back.

PTB: Hahahaha. You mock me sir...never mind. I like you anyway.

I most certainly am not mocking, though now I think the warm and fuzzy feeling I felt was the coffee kicking in.

"So let me just say, I really really like you.?"

Would you retract that if you found that that some dweebs were reading your blog? Not that I am one, but you know.

Jenn said...

PTB: I know what you mean about the coffee kicking in - although that does not leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling. It leaves me feeling my brain is fried. (Although that was in Aus where I was forced to have real coffee in uni, my favourite instants not being available).

David: Not really. I like most dweebs. Welcome.

that girl in pink said...

well, you sound happy! glad you feel that way.
i feel a bunch of things towards people...intimidated, judgemental, snobbish, envious, disdainful...
but i do realise that most people are basically good and nice and as screwed up as i am so actually yeah, i do like them!

David Cho said...

Wow, thanks Jenn. I am so touched, and never been so proud of being a dweeb. Your positive attitude puts you in some good company there.

I never met a man I didn't like

So let me just say, I really really like you

Pink: Sure you do. You're a talented sweetheart and when you think you're all those other things, that's just when you're out of sorts.

David: Will Rogers? THE Will Rogers? Man, I am in good company. Why shouldn't I like dweebs? Being one myself...

David Cho said...

Yes, THE Will Rogers. I used live just miles from the Will Rogers State Park in Los Angeles.

Dweebs Unite!

let me just say " me too"

Jenn said...

Lemon! How nice to hear from you. Thank you.

I tell you, if all the world fell in like with each other, where would the war industry be?

And I leave you with that utterly profound thought.
