Week Two - - Day Two
Lust as Curiosity and Play
The Joys of Two Bodies instead of One
(It’s not so serious, this sex/ sensuality thing)
Think of a puppy, rolling in the mud.
The pure delight of life touching the sensuous joy of life.
That’s what you want your touch life to be like.
It that leads to great sex, or wonderful sex, or fantastic sex, fine.
If it stick around in the glory of two bodies that get to touch (think of a mother or a father and their young baby/ child), so be it.
THIS IS ABOUT LIFE.
What if “happy ever after” meant this now and the next and the next?
Including THIS NOW, right now.
Including this now, RIGHT NOW.
Including this NOW, right NOW.
INCLUDING this now, right now.
And so on.
Are you smiling?
If not, go ahead. Give it a try.
Sense your feet
Walk around and look at things
And touch some of them
Do this with
Life is meant to be touched.
And while you’re at it, get up again and wander, this time touching things with….
Happiness #6: Your feet
Wander around wherever you are
With shoes and socks off
Touch and feel things with your feet
This is the world of children
This is our world at the beach
This is our world in bed
WE FINALLY GET OUR SOCKS AND SHOES OFF
Of course, there’s no rule against shoes and socks off in the house, and many houses do have a rule of shoes off.
This is a good rule.
Consider making your house and shoe free house.
You’ll like it.
So let’s get back to our partners.
We last had a grand time explore their feet and their hands with our hands. Let’s expand this in a way that’s a little silly, and ultimately, profound.
Or, could be profound.
But what will you find?
We’ll see/ feel/ notice/ realize.
Touching and Relationship Exercise #3:
Touch your partner’s hand with your feet and your hands
For three or four minutes
It’s going to be awkward
You’ll both feel sensations that may well be new
This sounds like a great way to expand a relationship to me
With hands and feet
What will happen?
This is life.
This is a book for those who want a more full and amazing life.
One way is to clear away your thinking by not believing in it.
Another is to be present and smile and breathe so you are in the midst of your own life as you are living it.
The third is this:
Explore more ways to touch.
As always: be present.
Take it in.
Hint: going slower almost always makes things more vivid.
Find out in that’s true for you.
