The 2000 Year Old Love Guide That Still Works

Ovid book

This 2000-year-old love guide still works and contains pertinent advice re dating, romance, and beauty. It was written by Ovid, a Pisces.

You can read his awesome  Art Of Love online.   Amazing how stunningly relevant and funny something written thousands of years ago can be. There is a cute little Daily Mail article on hs beauty & love advice here.

“If I heard a voice from heaven say “live without loving”, I’d beg off. Girls are such exquisite hell. When desires slaked, when I’m sick of the whole business, some kink in my wretched nature drives me back. It’s like riding a hard-mouthed horse, that bolts headlong, foam flying from his bit and won’t answer the rein –

…Or being aboard a ship, on the point of docking, in harbour, when a sudden squall blows you back to sea: That’s how the veering winds of desire so often catch me – Hot Love up to his lethal tricks again. All right, boy skewer me, I’ve dropped my defences, I’m an easy victim. Why, by now Your arrows practically know their own way to the target. And feel less at home in their quiver than in me. I’m sorry for any fool who rates sleep a prime blessing and enjoys it from dusk to dawn…Night In. Night out.  What’s sleep but cold death’s reflection?

Plenty of time for rest when you’re in the grave. My mistress deceives me – so what? I’d rather be lied to than ignored. I can live on hope….”

So, if you’re sick of present-day relationship advice and want something more timeless and enduring, turn to this 2000-year-old love guide. Who knows? Maybe you even read it millennia ago in a past life?

nope, word ‘ovum’ predates Ovid…

Ovum is a much better word than sperm

I think spermatozoa is a wonderful word….rolls of your tongue like montezuma 😉

I like zygote 🙂

I read somewhere that the x chromosome has many more combinations acids features etc. also much longer.stronger. while the y chromosone is less featured but is a Palindrome

wikipedia
(A palindrome is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction.

I know there are a few witches and goddess’s here but are there any genetic scientists out there who can confirm this ?

taurean alchemist

In 2003, researchers from MIT discovered a process which may slow down the process of degradation. They found that human Y chromosome is able to “recombine” with itself, using palindrome base pair sequences.[11] Such a “recombination” is called gene conversion or recombinational loss of heterozygosity (RecLOH).

(from Wikipedia’s entry on the Y chromosome)

david, Bryan Sykes has written a very interesting book on the Y – ‘Adam’s Curse’ in which he claims that the Y is in danger of extinction…

😆 with your sexed-up ovaries TA you’ll need to be careful or zygote might be more than just a word

I read somewhere that the Y chromosome’s endangered by the earth’s rising estrogen levels

thanks for that TA, although possible, Im sure no one would like the world without the Y, or maybe we would be better off ?

Alchemist…what IS that pheronomey perfume you wear & can i have some:)
Truly, Girlfriend, you must have the sexiest ovaries of all time.
Is Ovid where ovaries got their name & why are our special bits named
after men. Graffenburg for god’s sake!!!!!
Can’t believe your Mum’s still visiting, long visit. Still she gave you
an interesting name to thank her for.

well Pegasus, maybe its pheremones or maybe its my new outlook on life, who knows!? (maybe we make extra sexy hormones when we are joyful??)… since the detox I’ve felt great!

and yes..its true, I’ve got sexed-up ovaries 😆 jokes abound about how I have eggs that chase sperm.

Ovid does sound rather egg-ish, I’ll check on the etymology…

thankfully I haven’t had to worry about the eternal egg and sperm race for years…..that’s true liberation 🙂

SweetPea & Dreaming Robots, Stui better looking than Tolle, half Sicilian and very very naughty much more Warrior energy than snaggy, & LOVES women. Says Goddess energy is coming bigtime to bring redemption. I like than plus he’s a pub person who’s watched The Matrix 56 times. Being a Sag, how can i help loving a man that does airport like i used to. Being in the sky was just my favorite place to be..inbetween countries. Him, i’ll renounce my vows of chastity. In fact i might do a Britt & send him a photo. I like that with the… Read more »

p.s.,

I have looked back over pages here but can’t find where Mystic mentions (and has a link to click on) for aerobic type music….Fast versions of some pop stuff for the gym.

Anyone know where that might have been?

hey nnb, how funny…. i KNEW it was you before you even said it!
You did say i would know. I shouldn’t have doubted that i would.

The neural pathways are exploding right now! I just had a coffee in the park under a big tree and bird poop missed my flat white by an inch then a ladybug landed on my face! It’s a definite sign of good things to come – 4 sure!

Right… off to the newsagency i go! 😉

Davidl – as in suffer to love.

And yep I felt the sun change – out of my molluscy sun sign into my ascendant. Great combo with Mars in Pisces. I hit the gym in a boxing blaze of glory. Viva Ram.

David, does that make you an incendiary devise and no longer a heat-seeking missile?

I second that….the energy of fire to cleanse, burn the past, the root chakra (Ha it’s survival)
The Kundalini.
The fire dancers of Tahiti, dancing the flame, breathtaking so to speak:)

Wooosh………blow air on it David…..the fire breath meditation.
Thanx for reminding me, this is a ideal time to work with that very powerful energy.
Have you gone to Stuart Wilde’s site yet?

Sweetpea

Pegasus,

What is your take on Stuart Wilde? Years ago (like maybe nearly 20 by now) he did a talk and autographed one of his books for me.

I hadn’t heard his name in years. He hadn’t struck me as terribly enlighented as his work seemed very astral to me, but maybe I was wrong. Things do change over time…

Only had a moment to peek at his site…Might return later….

Sweetpea

The book by Wilde that I have “The Force” (which I didn’t see in my bookcase anywhere..) was apparently published in 1984 and that sounds about right.

scorpalicious robot

i had that book in the 80’s too and have left it and Stuart back there. I’m into Eckhardt Tolle now.

scorpalicious robot

i might have a peek and see what he’s been up to

Sweetpea

I like Eckhardt Tolle also. He’s like the simple version of Seth as far as the format and how he explains it. Hopefully others will find his work valuable as well, but I do often wonder about the actual energetic transformation one may or may not have under gone, as enlightenment is not just about the thoughts/feelings or such but is a merging of Soul and personality, thus enlightening the physical body.. “The Secret” is regurgitated Seth “knowing you create your reality is the secret to creativity”… Stuff comes back around in new ways because the consciousness of the planet… Read more »

Sweetpea, i agree with you that stuff comes back around in new ways. I’m not sure that Eckhardt Tolle would have resonated had i read it 20 years ago. I did a lot of new age courses back in my 20’s and have read many books but everything is finally falling into place for me now. I guess i had a lot of growing and learning to do before i could fully absorb the “truths”. One can read all the books in the world and still not be enlightened – that comes with experience. And of course the learning never… Read more »

yay for the equinox… celebrated with one last piscean nite out with that CUB – fringe festival comedy, too much wine, dancing etc…at once stage I had five good looking men in attendance, and felt like a flower covered in bees… then I was in bed pretty much exactly as the sun crossed the aries point.

TA I did something similar last weekend with our local wine and food festival. I went with masses of family and had made all arrangements so’s not to drive etc but only had two glasses of wine but I danced and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Then drove everyone home and was breathalised for my efforts. The look on the young cops face was wonderful. I’m sure he thought he’d caught a live one but it barely registered. He was so obviously stunned I got a fit of the giggles and drove away still giggling. If the cops looking for me to… Read more »

I love that you bewildered the breath test! and so sweet that you have your new taurean :)… taurean men are the best! oh well, I’m really enjoying the honeymaking right now – still strangely attached to the CUB though – he’s really changed/grown and is treating me so wonderfully, not to mention bonding with his little dung bug (and what mother isn’t a sucker for the sight of a man she loves playing with his child?). Could just be Venus retro (and I do have Venus in Aries so this is like a triple ‘venus return’… Read more »

That damn flicker of hope in the soul that creates a momentary forgetfulness of all that has gone wrong and propels us into another affair. Gosh if I had a dollar for everytime I wished it had stayed out after a heartbreak or disappointment to be free of the despair… but what a ride!

Oh, the ache of desire for something that always ends painfully – how well he puts it. I am feeling this pull to someone like that so strongly today. Resist! Resist!
