Sample text

In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. " Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.

They are two, and yet one. They live "together" (symbiosis), they need each other. The fetus is a part of the mother, it receives everything it needs from her; mother is its world, as it were; she feeds it, she protects it, but also her own life is enhanced by it. In the psychic sym biotic union, the two bodies are independent, but the same kind of attachment exists psychologically. The passive form of the symbiotic union is that of submission ,or if we use a clinical term, of masochism.
