Love Without A Body: What Does it Mean to Truly Connect?


I’ve been thinking lately about what love looks like when there’s no body there to love. Is it still the same flavour of love when there’s no skin-covered manifestation to receive it? 

I don’t think this is so morbid or noir. For me, this musing actually aligns with expansiveness and freedom. To love beyond the body is to love the essence, the spirit and divinity that is the truth inside each one of us fleshy humans. 

We miss bodies, that’s for certain. When people die or leave or walk away, their physical presence or lack thereof is palpable in the deepest corners of the heart. We’re humans. We have bodies. We get around, we chat, we hug and kiss and eat and tickle, and none of this would be possible in the same way without two feet and a heartbeat. 

But love can still exist even after the body up and leaves.
