23 On Appreciating Deeper Processes - On Intimacy

EXPERIENCE has taught us that intimacy is difficult because we expect it and want it right away. 
Most of us seek instant intimacy. 
Sex, the best/worst example of instant intimacy, is the instant gratification for intimacy-seeking souls.  It is thought to be the elixir of life, that magic potion that will mood-alter us into unimagined ports of call and happiness and well-being. 
Too bad it doesn’t work that way.
Sex, courtship, and infatuation all contain elements of feeling intimate, but they are not intimacy, and they are not magical.  They, in and of themselves, will not provide either happiness or a sense of well-being.  Some folks don’t know this, and some do, but refuse to want to believe that it might be true.

Too Much, Too Soon
Too Fast, Too Inflexible
Too Demanding
Can Damage The Possibilities Of Intimacy.
