My Reason For PolyamoryI feel that relationships which are based around fortifying and feeding the self-worth of yourself and your partner are deleterious to the phenomenon of true, selfless love. True, selfless love is ego-free. Without the desire to feed the ego, there is no jealousy when the loved one is seen loving another. The normal reaction, "but what about ME!?", is not fed. Without the ego, there is no I in the relationship, only You. This is conducive to what I feel is the true 'purpose' of loving relationships: divine union.
In other words, in a relationship, the attitude I adopt is to give, and ask for nothing in return. Not even exclusive monogamy (though I am not against monogamy). Whatever you want to give, I will accept as a gift, not as a payment. My love is free.
