"If man only were properly reverent and awed by his fertility, which is one and the same whether of the spirit or the flesh, for mental creativity also originates in the flesh. In its essence, it is the same, and nothing but a quieter, and more ecstatic, and more everlasting repetition of physical lust. The notion of being a creator, and of procreating, and creating things is nothing without its unending, great confirmation and actualization in the world. It is nothing until it has been affirmed a thousand times over by the things and animals around us. The pleasure we take in our power to create is so indescribably beautiful and rich only because it is full of inherited memories of the procreation and birthing of millions of beings.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke (Rilke On Love)

In 2021 in America, we are beginning to grasp ourselves less as individuals with free wills to enact upon the world, and more as parts of a vast interconnected system of humanity. Some might suggest this is an ironic awakening, considering the citizenry has been more isolated than ever before in the last fourteen months. But this isolation has confirmed in fact that the connections we share are energetic, reaching beyond the material plane.



As Rilke describes, when we release into embodying our own pleasure, we enter a shared collective memory of all the ecstatic creation of art and birthing ever recorded by the cosmos. Ancient Greek philosophers attempted to break love down into many different categories (familial love, romantic love, platonic love) arranged along a hierarchical spectrum that culminated in love of God. But, as Rilke suggests, spiritual love is inextricable from the love innately expressed in and by our fleshy bodies.

Love is a refutation of the intellect in many instances. We cannot reason love into being. This characteristic of love is akin to the felt harmonic rhythm of music, in that it grabs ahold of us from deep within our bodies and becomes the foundation for resonance. On top of this foundation, we build both odes to love’s beauty and monuments to its devastation. When we remove cerebral resistance, when we let go in sex or in music or in the act of art-making, we become true conduits for powerful energy greater than ourselves. Now is a good time to move toward a conception of love as available dynamism we all can tap.
