We use other people to satisfy our desires for safety, pleasure, affection, and attention. Normally, we seek romantic relationships with other people in an effort to complete ourselves. These relationships are between subject and object, in which we are the subject and the other person is the object. However, in such shallow relationships, our mind and body eventually becomes desensitized to the other person and we stop feeling the same sense of pleasure from the union, so it comes to an end, and we then try to find someone (or something) else to replace the feeling of completeness. This is how we begin a never-ending cycle of temporary relationships.
Naturality helps us connect with our natural self, which leads us to feel at ease with ourselves. When we feel ‘complete’ within ourselves, we do not seek this completeness in other people. Thus, when we enter a relationship while walking our natural path, it is between subject and subject – we treat the other person like a whole, complete person meant to complement us, instead of treating them as an object meant to satisfy us. These relationships have a sense of equality, and are more meaningful. The source of love and energy comes from within us, and so it does not disappear; it is self-sustaining and is expressed within the relationship instead of being fuelled by it. We find freedom in our relationships instead of seeking freedom from them.
