"Polyamory" is to relationships as "Organic" is to food, in that, due to living in a less than ideal society, what would be the natural psychological disposition must take the burden of a label because it’s the minority.  Bound by cause and effect, we maintain an active relationship with all individuals on this planet regardless of the labels we give certain one’s.  One becomes comfortable with polyamory just as one becomes comfortable with any truth, as one acclimates themselves to the initial discomfort of change, followed then by the empowerment of an honest independent lifestyle.

If we were to live in a society that didn’t condition it’s citizens to be avoid even general intimacy and anticipate being shamed for their sexual desires, a society where we weren’t divided in our psychological delusions, the social construct that is “monogamy” would cease to be glorified.

I like the analogy.

"Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused."

"Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty. When love flows with dependence there is ugliness.

A mature person does not fall in love, he or she rises in love. Only immature people fall; they stumble and fall down in love. Somehow they were managing and standing. Now they cannot manage and they cannot stand. They were always ready to fall on the ground and to creep. They don’t have the backbone, the spine; they don’t have the integrity to stand alone.

A mature person has the integrity to stand alone. And when a mature person gives love, he or she gives without any strings attached to it. When two mature persons are in love, one of the great paradoxes of life happens, one of the most beautiful phenomena: they are together and yet tremendously alone. They are together so much that they are almost one. Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. Only freedom and love."
