…(and more love and ecstasy) on Valentine’s Day.
“Following your bliss is not self-indulgent, but vital; your whole physical system knows that this is the way to be alive in this world and the way to give to the world the very best that you have to offer.“
– Joseph Campbell
There’s one unexpected source of Tantric wisdom for you.
More comes from a man with the demeanour of a kindly Santa.
(Never judge a book by its cover…)
“Put away your pointless taboos and restrictions upon sexual energy — rather, help others to truly understand its wonder, and to channel it properly…the sexual experience can be the single most loving, most exciting, most powerful, most exhilarating, most renewing, most energizing, most affirming, most intimate, most uniting, most recreative physical experience of which humans are capable.”
That’s Neale Donald Walsch.
In Conversations with God, Walsch asks a bunch of burning questions.
And God answers.
“How may we best express this thing called sexual energy?”
And, of course,
God goes as far as to speak explicitly of a Tantric practice that enables lovers to “experience a prolonged and joyful union of souls and bodies” and to satisfy a deep “thirst for ecstasy”.
To be fair, Walsch does not claim to have channelled his books; rather, he was inspired to write in this way, dialoguing with God.
A most inspired section is Walsch’s reframing of marriage and his own wedding vows, shared in the third volume of Conversations of God…
But let’s come back to you.
Your relationships. Sexuality. Marriage.
What are your sources of wisdom on these matters?
What does your God have to say about pleasure and following your bliss?
In your most intimate moments, what voice whispers in your ear?
Do write and share.
Wishing you an inspired and blissful Valentine’s Day!
