THIS EPISODE's WISDOM QUOTES
"The feminine principle is the sexual principle, there is no difference really between the feminine and sexuality... A feminine body is a round, fluid, undulating ocean of sexual energy that wants to move in an undirected and explorative way....Female sexuality and our sexual organs are a gateway to our inner mysteries. When we return to the innocence of our bodies and our sexuality and stop using our bodies to please or get something from others, and when we return to a connection between our souls, hearts, and sexuality, then when someone enters into us, that entering is going ti be an entering into the inner mysteries of the Divine Feminine. And with conscious and devotional attitude to the act of lovemaking, the one who enters a woman's temple will knowingly be entering the mysteries of Divine Feminine, and will be transformed by her."
"For us women to really discover our sexuality, it's is a looking inwards. It's a closing of our eyes and imagining that we are looking down in the body. We need to feel ourselves from the inside out, which is the opposite of what most women experience because we are so attuned to our partners, children, and communities, and our sexuality can become so externalized... In the act of making love, for women the natural movement is very much like a river, a fluid, spiraling, circular movement, not at all what we see in the porn movies, which is the back-and-forth, pumping movement, very goal-oriented toward the genital orgasm. In fact, women's bodies want to really deeply relax and go into the soft, fluid unwinding. And that is the gateway."
