you know you’re gonna
wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you’re under him,
you ain’t getting over him.
(New Rules, Dua Lipa)
Do we cheat if we have a sexual fantasy with someone other than our life partner? Do we we cheat if we watch porn? Having a steamy thought vanishes soon enough, while the lustful impact of a pornographic movie lingers longer. The sexual relationship then—even if it is a one night stand—entangles us for years. Let what may have happened in the past be, but apply Dua Lipa’s ‘New Rules’ for today. A spiritual path is about about cutting cords that stand in the way of true love.
