Sex is so basic to our humanity, and sexuality is an arena, like dreaming, that connects us to the parts of ourselves we don’t always fully understand or have words for. This is what makes sexuality fascinating and endlessly variable and certainly worth performing.
More than one ancient religion venerated sexuality as a path to divinity. It is only after the advent of some of the modern religions that we see such a widespread suppression of sexuality as being evil. There’s a reason for this. Control and the power that comes from such control. But if we can break free of that control and allow ourselves to dream and feel again, then perhaps we can bring the divinity back to our sexuality. Perhaps we can reconnect our dream selves with our waking selves and be whole again.
I find hope in the fact that so many people seem to be crying out for that kind of connection. Perhaps we are starting to understand as a society that we must be connected to every part of ourselves, including (in my opinion, especially) our sexuality.
Here’s to first steps!
