“Love is the energy of transformation”
By alarm or other means we get out of bed, dress for the standards of the day, drink our coffee or whatever, and believe we are awake. Ninety-nine and forty-four percent of the world’s population thinks the same way, so it can’t be wrong… or can it? Sometimes we simply live in a world of self-imposed oblivion, squinting to overcome the natural mechanics of opened eyes.
“Awakening, evolving, transformation, etc.,” are all words used to describe a growth in our consciousness, or state of being awake. From a hard-core perspective, this simply means being able to use our brains better. There is a myth that says we only use 10% of our brains. Science proves we use all of our brains. Science can also prove a Ferrari traveling at 10 mph is using all the parts of it’s engine. It needs more gas to go faster. We need more love to make our brains and bodies work better.
Although any of the forms of love will do the trick, sexual love seems to be the most intense form. The problem is most of us see “sex equals pleasure,” and seldom, if ever, consider it is primarily a mechanism for transmitting love. The bad news is when we think of it simply as pleasure that is all we will get: that momentary orgasmic release. But, that is like choosing a Big Mac over Chateaubriand! The good news is, when we focus on transmitting love, our actual pleasure increases by an order of magnitude or more, and our ecstasy can make orgasm a non-event.
It is all about attitude. It is simple but not easy. Since both sexual desire and thirst originate in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus, the following analogy is very appropriate. (Howdja like the science speak?)
Imagine yourself water-less in the desert. You are not yet delusional with dehydration, but close and your thirst seems unquenchable. As you stop to wipe your dried brow, a great ball of light appears before you. From this ball of light steps a winged angel in diaphanous robes, radiant with a beauty before unknown to you. In her hands is a container of life-giving water. But, not just any container: this is the Holy Grail, the sacred chalice of life. The water is holy, sacred water that nourishes your soul as it quenches your thirst. Falling to your knees in both physical weakness and gratitude, you reach out for it, so willing to accept this precious gift offered. As your parched lips touch the rim of the chalice, you are overwhelmed with gratitude and a peaceful ecstasy. As the sacred water trickles down your throat, you feel it nourishing you soul as it nourishes your body. You are empowered to continue your journey in life and most guys don’t even say, “Thank you,” before they roll over and go to sleep. Not all angels have wings.
Giving love is the easy part. Receiving love is tough. Many men consider it a sign of “weakness.” Once empowered, they change their minds rapidly. Women, too, have been brow beaten into unworthy-ness for thousands of years. A few are out growing this and regaining their power. We need to encourage and applaud this as well as honor and respect them. For it is only by allowing our consciousness to grow that we will stop listening to used-car salesmen, leading us up the rose covered path into the slaughterhouse.
