Sex: Entering a Wom(b)an

I found the following to be incredibly sacred..  it has spirituality & psychology all woven in. Transpersonal psychology indicates that we all have a desire to return to the womb.. and this often has numerous connections of how we can interpret our quest for the union with the divine, the original safety, Utopia, the birthing experience/ white light at the end of the tunnel and so much more.  So when this post caught my eye on facebook I was deeply interested, only to learn that it gets taken down.. (the author has posted it before). So am being  little clever and posting it as a blog entry with all the tags to facebook intact, and then share it on facebook.   Bright Blessings.  Mani.  (ps. The blog title is entirely of my fashioning.  The author had  `Dear Men’  as the title).

 DEAR MEN 

Do you know…

That when you enter a woman, you are actually INSIDE of another human being, you are inside of her?

Have you ever realized how sacred this is?

That this is the closest thing to oneness that you will ever experience, and that she holds this gift for you…

That you can return to the womb and to the point of creation…

That you can plant the seeds of creation as well…

That when you leave her, she feels the separation as you physically pulls out and leave her empty…

That being allowed inside of her is a gift, an honoring, something sacred, and that it is your job to know, respect and honor this…

That her heart is connected to her sex, and when you want to enter her sex, you enter her heart as well…

That she feels everything when you enter her, as all of your energy is being passed on and into her. Therefore you have a responsibility of entering with transparency of your intentions, as she will feel all the ways you might use her to avoid feeling your own pain or emotions. You need to be mindful and aware about why you are entering her, and what you are filling her up with…

That “sex” is the cosmic union of the feminine and the masculine energy, a sacred meeting of polarities, and that it has nothing to do with reaching an orgasm, lasting long enough, the size, another number for your collection, or your worth…

That truly opening up a woman, is about going deep, but not going deep within her, going deep within yourself, knowing yourself, and the deeper you are able to enter yourself, the deeper you can enter a woman as well…

A message to Trump – Art by Akse (Battle of the Birds)

I found the following street art by Akse (lives in Manchester) quite brilliant.  So sharing the art/photo.   No copyright breach intended..  only frustration at Trump.  -Mani

I am Gaian – and I am against Brexit & Trump!

I am Gaian and I am against Brexit and against Trump. Here once and for all is my explanation:

mani gaian

(first published on my facebook wall on 3rd June 2019).

1) On Brexit————:
I do not like Brexit…because on a long term scale..it’s about isolation..not unity (UK peeling off from a local group of countries s how I see it…regardless of all the shitty finances and logic chopping. That’s politics..Am an idealist thinking about far far long term effects of the world).

2) Trump’s fear-mongering, the Wall & Hitler ideologies——–:

And I don’t like a wall being built to keep people off..because that’s also about separation and isolation instead of integration and Unity. That argument of illegal immigrants/ refugees coming in to mess up America is utter bollocks. ( I am a refugee who came to UK.. and look at the sheer contributions I have give to various communities in UK?! )

  • Divide (by fear) and conquer (by promises):

If a bunch of Americans have been `influenced’ (election propaganda) into hating others and want their segregation and have voted for a fool (Trump) who is stoking their fears… I don’t have to like it..! It’s classic divide and conquer tactics.. Stoke fears between people ro communities or nations, .. Say you are on their (one) side to protect them..and that side of people will like, listen and support you.

Hitler rose in power because he played on German people’s fears (Jews are getting all the wealth, Jews have power, etc etc).

  • Trump the Fool-idiot and tantrum throwing child:

Donald Trump is an ill educated moron..who makes so many stupid intellectual mistakes..(just sift through his statements and media `shows’.. ) And everyone laughs.. on a global scale.. at him! That makes him angry instead of embarrassed. So he gets his revenge by doing more stupid things.. playing with power he has been given. Imore Executive orders..more rolling back laws and initiatives..). This has been the pattern.

In short.. Trump is influencing the world towards destruction and isolation.. he is doing nothing short of making Americans the new master-race..

3) I am Gaian———–:

I have said before and I say it again a thousand times.. I am GAIAN.. I am of Earth.. and anything that moves away from unity is something I do not like.. ! The changes we sleepwalk into will kill the world…maybe not in our generation…but by the next or one after. As an idealist and one thinking about the very long term future of the Earth, I am against anyone and anything that creates segregation..instead of world Unity.
