LESSON CONTENT

Introduction To Awakened Water In The Sensual Experience

Sensuality is part of our experience.   We could be experiencing ecstatic bliss moment by moment.  What is it like to totally accept the sensual aspect of your being?  What if your feeling body and your felt sense and all the sensual needs of existence were included? 

“True bliss includes the second chakra, which is also our sexual energy.  When you allow this energy to flow in your body - it’s not just about personal pleasure - it’s about the bliss of life.”

 

What would it be like if our entire culture was in the pace in water?

In the world we’re in, we’ve lost this sense, and then we get disconnected and hungry, and then we just fill with false pleasures, like sugars and porn and video games. Our consuming culture and our buying cultures coming from a lack of living in the fulfillment of what's actually here.  We're distracting the mind because we aren't here in this deep felt sense where everything is ecstatic.  

There is cultural conditioning that has said pleasure is bad, and we're living in a culture that has more of a distorted masculine as the tendency and there's some cultures that have distorted feminine as a tendency, but here and now there's not as much permission for this type of feminine wisdom.

There's gifts of the, of the masculine there's gifts of the feminine.  There are certain cultures, like Brazil has way more water than the United States.  You say two o'clock, and people show up but it might not have at exactly two o’clock. Right. Then you can feel the sensuality of the culture. Then you can go to Germany which has more of the masculine conditioning and the train shows up on time and they're efficient.

Even many wisdom traditions don't want you to get lost in the bliss as they see bliss as the distraction.   Sensing the flow of energy is a distraction.  It’s hard to find any clear mirrors.

The practices shared below are such a great antidote for cortisol and stress that we all face in our daily lives.    We can cultivate a level of sensitivity, enjoyment and bliss where every moment of life is an exquisite precious, unfolding bliss.  We can live in the recognition that it is a pleasure body that we are occupying at every moment.  There's an element of  giving ourselves permission to do this, to experience this, and to feel this, and have this as part of our day to day life.  

 

 

A NOTE ABOUT THE SEXUAL ACT:

Recognizing the different levels available in the sexual act:   Sex can happen on the Ordinary mind’ level, which would just be two bodies.   Then there's the energy of that act where we now have an intermingling. In the highest levels, what you'll feel is that the central channels are coming into union, and there is a uniting (to speak from the feminine perspective) to open oneself and allow that level of union, because we often are in the receptive role allowing. 

Honoring the vulnerability: It’s a very vulnerable act to be that level of open.  The masculine energy holds the role of container as there's often a need for stability.  When you're opening like that, you're not even opening to that individual person, you're opening to God.   It's actually a union with divinity itself.

We’re not just an infinite being we’re also a human being with wiring for attachment - many levels of being all occurring simultaneously. 

It’s like two kids asking for their parent’s attention at the same time. Pick one at a time and if you say, “Honey, I'm going to be with you fully, and then I'm going to be with you next” the kids will settle. You can't be with both of them, they're both coming at you at the same moment. You can't really give them what they need. 

How do we honor the vulnerability of the human being while also recognizing the infinity of the being that actually is? How do we contain all of them? How can we use reliability, stability, and presence so that those aspects of us can open?
