A good lover will behave as elegantly at dawn as at any other time. His eyes will glitter with wonder for his lover most of their days together, lest he gets his head buried deep in Samadhi. He drags himself out of bed with a look of dismay on his face.
The lady urges him on: “Come, sweetheart, it’s getting light. You don’t want anyone to find you here.”
He gives a deep sigh, as if to say that the night has not been nearly long enough and that it is deeply agonizing for him to leave. Once up, he does not instantly pull on his apparel. Instead, he comes close to the lady and whispers whatever was left unsaid during the night.
Even when he is dressed, he still lingers, vaguely pretending to be fastening his belt.
Presently he raises the lattice, and the two lovers stand together by the side door while he tells her how he dreads the coining day, which will keep them apart; then he kisses her gently and pensively slips away. The lady watches him go, and this moment of parting will remain among her most charming memories.
Indeed, one’s attachment to a lover depends largely on the elegance of his leave-taking. When he jumps out of bed, scurries about the room, tightly fastens his trouser belts, rolls up the sleeves of his court cloak, stuffs his belongings into the pocketsof his briefcase and then briskly secures the mind-focus to leave—one really begins to hate them, secretly.
Usually, most people have dreams in their youth that get shattered or worn down with age. They find themselves disappointed by people, events, reality, which cannot match their youthful ideals. Ideal Lovers thrive on people’s broken dreams, which become lifelong fantasies. You long for romance? Adventure? Whatever one’s dreams might be, these find a confluence in such an ideal lover – where all love and beauty and inner freedom find a rare convergence in the ocean of Pure Bliss.
The Ideal Lover reflects ones innate and subtle fantasy. He or she is a genius in creating the reality you require, idealizing your dreams. Many people are usually unable to find happiness and passion in relationships because there is so much lack of originality and awareness in the way they relate. Failure to include awareness in such transactions translates into an effect similar to two robots falling in love, a case where true emotions, feelings and enchantment [oh, and baseness!] lack in great measure.
