True Intimacy

In honor of Valentine's day I have chosen to write about a topic that many love and some are confused by - intimacy. Whether we want it, embrace it, love it and enjoy it thoroughly or, dismiss it, detach from it or ultimately shut off from it, it exists infinitely within us.

Whether "it" is sex with a partner, compassion for familiy or a deep conversation with a close friend, intimacy is the ultimate expression of closeness. A willingness to open ourselves to receive another.

In a society inundated with commercialized sex, or sex that sells, we can easily create romanticized images of what love is. This Valentine's Day, take a moment to reflect on times in your life when true love - the love that connects you to another on the deepest of levels - was freely expressed. Perhaps you can jot a few notes into a journal and allow those feelings to resurface. From this place, allow yourself to connect to opportunities in your current life in which your love, and true intimacy, may be embraced.

In allowing ourselves to experience this deepest of levels of our existence, we expand in ways we have only imagined.

For further material on this topic and specifically sexual intimacy, read this article from Yoga Journal. It dives deeply into the heart of spiritual sex and addresses the question of whether spirituality and sexuality can exist independently. Enjoy and share.

Share with those you love. Take every opportunity to do so. Talk about it, experience it, breathe it and celebrate it with every ounce of your being.

Share the love.

Happy Valentine's Day.

In gratitude for all that is,
