Shiva, deep in meditation, felt a sharp pang of desire inflicted by Kama, who like Eros, performs his mischief with infallibly aimed arrows. Annoyed, the god pushed the distraction aside. His meditation continued. No doubt, whole universes were created and destroyed in the path of his intense concentration. Kama approached again. This time he pierced Shiva with fascination. The god succumbed.We call it falling in love. When you think of it though, love is actually the place we land in – if we’re lucky. What we fall through in the first wild, sweet flush of romance is desire, and it’s a thrilling ride with ups and downs of fascination, curiosity, joy, and passion. Desire itself is desirable. It is possible to resist desire, but when the force hits, so strong is the magnetism that not even the gods want to resist it. Yet the process of falling in love, or the descent into infatuation, can be a singular invitation to discover the mysteries and possibilities not just of another person, but of that part of ourselves that joyfully emerges and flourishes when we succumb to passion.
