Show up for sex

What I find pretty interesting is that people spend lots of time thinking about sex, having sexual fantasies, trying to hook up, strategizing, etc. And then when they’re having sex, their minds are off somewhere else.

Next time you’re fortunate enough to be in a sexual situation, watch your mind. Are you fully in the room? Are you using your senses to their fullest? Are you so attuned to your partner and her pleasure that her pleasure seems like your own? Are you feeling your own body fully?

A basic spiritual practice is to be present: to be here and now. What better place to practice that than sex? What a great place to be fully present.

  1. Personally, I find it amazing how many people don’t show up for life in general. Be aware, and everything becomes more powerful, more real, and more worth it.

    But, yes, you are right, what, in the human experience, could be a better place to be fully aware than sex? And why is it so many people are on autopilot at this wonderful time?
