Remember to touch.
Touch is an expression of love.
Touch love is deeply sensory. And it is different from sex.
Sex is often robotic, and too often thrives off the short term, the animal instinct and the exotic. A friend touches.
Touch love is spiritual, sensory, soulful. Touch acknowledges a person’s being.
It says, “I am with you.” It says, “I care.”
Ambivalence is cold, unmoved. But touch warms. It activates.
The very nervous system is heightened with touch.
So, touch him. Touch his face; ease his fears.
Touch her! Touch her hand. Don’t hold it!
Hold it only, for security. But, touch it for sensory sensation.
Touch for affirmation.
Touch for love.
Don’t be afraid, touch me.
Husbands love your wives…
“…the greatest of these is Love.”
(1 Corinthians 13:13)
