Yes, I've read that thread and I love that concept. I've used it consciously a few times since reading it.

Totally off topic...but you know how people say that they're spiritual or intelectual, why is it that no one ever says that they are a being rooted in the physical? I think that I am. I feel most connected to things when I am moving in some way or experiencing things with my senses. It's not to say that I don't have a good head on my shoulders or that I don't appreciate the value of meditation. But my feeling of connection to the rest of the world is more physical than anything. (It might go to explain my total lack of any kind of artistic talent).

Back to your thread Roly...

Back to your thread Roly...

-Derby
I'm spiritually rooted to the person I love...I'm physically rooted to the world. When I kiss Redpepper it is more spiritual and "Utopian"...when I ride motorbike it is more physical and grounded in the earth. Both are intense connections but my earth connection is primitive and aggressive and my spiritual connection is enlightened and beyond animal instinct.

I'm a mix and seem to move in and out of phase with each depending on how I feel and who I am with.

When I am at work my earth grounding is at the forefront because that is the environment. When I am with Redpepper and family I am spiritually grounded because it is safe to be vulnerable in that way. Spiritually grounded people get eaten alive in my work place LOL!

Oh Derby, thank you for bringing this up! It's exactly relevant.

I wonder if it's a given, in our society, that we're expected to be grounded in the physical, so we don't often make a point of saying it. My friend (who has the same name as you actually) that I've known for nearly 20 years is much like you. Practical, grounded in the physical. She feels good in her body. She also feels out of touch with artistic things and has had trouble understanding us artsy types. She never understood why my emotions run so deep. Just the way we're wired.

Personally, I find it difficult to stay grounded in the physical. Partly because I'm so up in my head, because I'm so sensitive and partly because I have physical pain and challenges in my body, so it's often uncomfortable to be rooted in my body.

Mono, I just love how you describe the spiritual connection you have with RP. I also feel an intense and powerful spiritual connection with Nerdist. Phew.
