The Proper Use Of Affection

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affection

To touch has a healing quality to it.

Especially when the hug or handshake comes from a trusted relative or friend who does no harm, but with affection.

A romantic relationship can develop into a sexual one, but will always include affection.

All humanity searches for affection through acts of kindness, compassion and care.

Different people and different culture will express affection in various ways, but to be human is to be affectionate!

To Dialogue

In this dialogue, two people are practicing how to dialogue. 

Socrates:  I hear silence.  I am teaching myself to stay calm.  Will you do the same!?

Michael:  Yes, I am practicing being present in the silence.

S:  While you are here, can you listen to me, engage with me in dialogue?

M:  It seems to me, that you are comfortable with silence, and love to engage in the student/teacher relationship.  I like to follow when it is a good practice and led when it is the same.

S:  Think?  How do you learn?

M:  I like to meditate and be present, mindful, listen and be a collaborator.

S:  Can I trust you to do all you say and be a good dialoguer?

M:  With more practice, I will help you teach yourself in this how to way, I call it the Socratic method.

S:  Courage, don’t forget to be willing to risk  it all with me or all you may trust.

M:  With much more practice, I will create my opus:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socratic_dialogue
