    The myth of Eros and Psyche is a wonderful story. I chose the Aesop version to read during this transmission not because I felt it was the most accurate translation, or because I felt it really had an redeeming value for us, but because it is the most innocuous and naive. While I think that many of us are postured cynically against love and all it’s idealism and seeming naivety we continue to see love as something raised up, apart from us, and we respond in our lives to the seeming lack of love, or disappointment that love brings. In a way this is missing what love actually is, and sadly solidifying our resistance to it, rather than “protecting us” or helping us to “heal.” If I’m not talking about you that’s fine. I’m writing categorically here both for emotional impact as well as mass appeal. It’s hard to reach everyone, and often to cast a broad net is a way of excluding everyone, but I’m going to speak pretty generally about this so if you dare, or if you care – read on.

    The noted psychologist Carl Jung wrote in great detail about the concept of “projection.” The concept isn’t Jung’s. It comes from Aristotle attempting to work out what is real, and what is not real. Jung made excellent work of the concept. In simple terms it means that when I look into your beautiful eyes I can’t help but project my hopes and dreams, devotion and light. It’s what I’m doing when I tell a stranger “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen” or when I tell my dear friend “You make me feel so free.” It’s true, but it’s not really you. It’s me. I’m sending my love out, and it is reflecting in you. I can only see it because you’re there as a mirror. It’s human, it’s natural, and it’s not bad, but I don’t really see you.

    We also counter-project: So when I tell you how free you make me feel, internally you respond. One may feel “Wow, he sees me as a healer, a love, a light that makes him feel free!” Or one might think “Dude, what a creep – he’s trying to totally fuck me right now!” The reaction doesn’t matter (that’s a subject of another transmission for another time) but the fact is that my projections cause you to internally project and counter project (regardless of what my intentions or your reaction may be.) It is a lot of responsibility to be “the most beautiful thing I have ever seen” isn’t it? What are you supposed to do with that? What if you make a mistake? What if your mascara runs and blurs all over your face and you look like a raccoon? Then what will happen? What if you find out I really am trying to fuck you? Oh no… then what will happen?

    In relationship, we project. And then one day we find ourselves sitting in front of a stranger. Life and all of her realities and stress have a way of working on projected love. We change, our other changes, and life’s march brings unexpected things. We can’t stay in a bubble. No matter how hard we try, it’s probably impossible. This is the moment when the “mirror cracks.” In our modern world this is the moment when we leave. Divorce rates are so high not to accept that we are raised to expect “true love,” and cynically settle for financial compensation, or at least “half.” It sucks, but the process appears by statistics alone to be the ugly truth we have come to accept about romance, partnership of any kind, and even friendships.

    By offering up the myth of Eros and Psyche I wanted to show that this moment when the mirror cracks – when your husband is a fat idiot and all he does it work and burp, or your wife is exhausted and wearing sweats, asleep before the news is over, or your “love” is embittered and seemingly lost beneath a pile of debt, children and broken promises – that this is not the end of anything. This is where love truly begins. The mirror cracks, illusion is demolished (in whole or in part) and a new heart is revealed.

    I’m sure that you, like me, need and expect your friends to really be there for you when you’re down. Not to hold you up, not to solve your problems, not to correct, monitor or fix you, but to be there with the compassion and love of the angels – stand shoulder to shoulder beside you and love you while you pull yourself together. And, I think it’s fair to say that that’s what your friends expect from you too. Our troubles begin the moment we start to project, and counter project. We tell lies, we create masks, we imagine what others think and feel, and we react to these hallucinations. “Reality” becomes so lost to us that we are all wandering around with broken hearts, blindfolded, and aching for truth. It’ is always imagined to be found in the “other.” We never seek it within ourselves. And if we do, it is a solitary journey. Then love walks in again, and we resume projection. Again, projection isn’t “bad.” Projection is natural, human, and normal. But to hold this idea that this is in fact what we do, and true love is not some distant silliness, but it is this very moment where the mirror shatters before our very eyes and we remain, we stay, we open wider and love each other as human beings who get tired, wear sweats, burp, fart, weep, wail and desire… Then we begin to really love each other.

    This is journey through “hell” that Eros and Psyche (desire and love, self and soul, me and you, heart and mind) journeyed through in order to live “happily ever after,” and it’s the journey I wish for, and hope to take with you.
