Chapter Six: Attraction

Kathy spent the energy of youth learning to master her thoughts and feelings, just so that she could get along in the world

She needed a place to escape.

When she was a child she escaped from the world into her memories, revisiting the lives of her ancestors.

As she was approaching puberty she escaped into the nous-sphere finding guidance in the presence of the living spirits whose memories she did not have incorporated into her own DNA.

She escaped into her anger and rage, the white hot heat of which could drown out everything else.

Finally, Kathy found escape into the real world. The circle had become complete. The past, she found, could be more oppressive than the present,

She discovered the supreme distraction in the passions of her body.

In masturbation, and sexual coupling she was able to forget herself, forget the world around her the uncritical, careless delights of sexual gratification.

She lost herself in beautiful people, in the present moment, in the desires that were most immediate to her senses. She could linger for hours, in the scent and taste of a lover.

Physical love was timeless.

She concentrated all her attention in the now. The present moment was everything, she became lost in it.
