‘Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.’ – Rumi
2020 has been uncharacteristically challenging, yet equally rewarding for me. As this year comes to an end and I prepare myself for the year(s) to come, I have been taking stock of my life. If we look at the standard “wheel of life”, there are 8 areas of focus:
Health, Wealth, Family, Finances, Romance, Spirituality, Community, and Personal Growth.
However, in my opinion, at the core of our human existence and therefore the center of the wheel of life, the focus is our sexuality. To be 100% honest, my sexuality has taken a back burner over the past few years but that is about to change. There is something stirring within my soul…as I walk alone on the beach, when I sit in silence and sip my tea, as I soak in a hot bath, when I hush my mind and listen with my heart, I feel desire growing from within. It begins with the pulse of my heart, beating like a drum in the distance. It’s a beautiful melody though it has no words. It’s calling out to me, imploring me to…DIVE IN…and explore. Encouraging me to explore the profound art of pleasure.
I am reminding myself of what I’ve been telling others for years; pleasure is MY birth right! I am worthy of experiencing profound states of bliss and ecstasy. I have decided to write a series of short posts related to love, intimacy, sexuality, and pleasure. In each of my posts I will ask you a question. My preference is that you answer my question (or express whatever you are inspired to share) in the form of a comment on the related post. If for some reason you’re not comfortable sharing here, you can email me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
My question for you:
Are you aware of any barriers that are currently preventing you from experiencing love or pleasure?
Please feel free to answer with a simple yes, a straight forward no, or dig deeper and share more of yourself. There are no wrong answers. Just your truth.
From my heart to yours,
