Full Body Orgasm

Take it slowly. Build the sexual energy a little at a time. There is no hurry. Every touch is a complete sexual act. Keep touching and teasing, making that store of sexual energy stronger and stronger. It is like filling water behind a dam where orgasm is the explosion breaking the dam. The amount of sexual energy within you determines both the strength of the orgasm, as well as how far up your body the orgasm will go.
Focus on the places that your partner, or you yourself, stimulate at the moment (It is good to practice on yourself as well). Remember that each touch is a complete sexual act. For example, if you feel a touch on your neck, tune in to the sensations that you feel at that exact spot. Do not allow yourself to think of anything but. Be the actual touch. Tantra is to make every moment count. Allowing your thoughts to stray on the way you look, the work you have to do, or what someone else is doing in the moment, is wasting a good time, your time! Let go of the thoughts, and live in each touch!
Finally, during orgasm, allow your mind to bring the energy up your body by simply directing it. While you feel your orgasm, feel yourself pull it up thru your stomach, chest, neck, landing finally in the crown of your head. Simply place your attention to where you want the energy to be, and with time, you will find the energy traveling. It may take a little practice, but after a while the orgasm will travel all the way to the top! Once this happens, the energy can continue to recycle throughout the body, having one orgasm after another, not knowing exactly where one ends and one begins.

–The Darkest of Lights

Look, let’s give it up. Let’s just lay around and make love and take walks and talk a little. Let’s drive down and look at the ocean. It’s only 45 minutes. Let’s play games in the arcades. Let’s go to the races, the Art Museum, the boxing matches. Let’s have friends. Let’s laugh. This kind of life like everybody else’s kind of life: it’s killing us.

Hooker’s Lips

This rare plant is named Psychotria elata. It is more commonly known as the Flower Lips, Hooker’s Lips or Hot Lips plant. Some people refer to them as Mick Jagger’s lips. The plant forms bright red bracts (specialized leaves) resembling the lips of a woman wearing red lipstick. These plants are found in the tropical rainforests of Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador. Due to deforestation, these spectacular plants have become endangered.

You need not go to heaven to see God; nor need you speak loud, as if God were far away; nor need you cry for wings like a dove to fly to Him. Only be in silence, and you will come upon God within yourself.

Saint Teresa of Avila

To all my friends,
known and unknown.
Happy Easter

Be crumbled.
So wild flowers will come up where you are.
You have been stony for too many years.
Try something different.
