The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Scare The Crap Out Of You!

Snip it via  by Mastin Kipp
I think that a great coach/mentor or friend is really great at seeing through us. And that is really want I want to talk about today is honesty and transparency in relationships.
I know in my own relationship, it’s been a growing edge for me to feel safe enough to tell the truth of how I am feeling. And the more and more Jenna and I are together, the more I love her and she loves me, the more the crap comes up. Because, let’s face it, when we Love, we also get scared because we are scared of being hurt. And so the deeper we Love, the more fear comes up in the beginning.
One of the fundamental skills I’ve learned from Laurie is just telling the truth. Not in a manipulative or mean way, but in an honest and loving way. One of the things that Laurie has helped to inspire in me with my relationship with Jenna is a sense that it is okay for me to tell the truth. As I’ve been feeling and acting into that, it’s been amazing to me how much my truth I either hold back, or cover up with a jab.
There is a little boy inside of me who is scared of being hurt, and sometimes it’s easier for me to just be a little sarcastic or a little insensitive, than it is for me to just share my truth. But as Jenna and I are growing together, the Love that is within me that is trying to find her, is making it’s way out.
It’s scary to really admit that you Love someone. It’s scary to admit your feelings and innermost thoughts. It’s scary to ask for what you want, when the possibility of the other person running is there. But, if we want to live an authentic and love filled life, it’s also necessary.

The Mythic Warrior Program for Men

via Earth Savers BlogSparrow Heart wrote to me this week to let me know he is about to begin the nine month Mythic Warrior program for men. 
I interviewed Sparrow for the Earth Savers Blog over a year ago and never posted the interview.  I consider him a true Earth Saver because he has taken a good long look at what makes a man a man, and brought to them a program for accessing their hopes, dreams, and vision for their future. I wanted to help him by spreading the news of the upcoming program:
In his own words:
Man-at-peace"Nearly all men have the experience of being under-fathered, and consequently, over-mothered. We have grown up in our mother's castle, and although we may have physically left, very few of us have really separated. Mother comes with us, standing between us and other men, projected onto women in our lives. Without love, guidance and teaching from fathers and elders, we struggle with how to become, and what it means to be a man.

Without fathers, elders to initiate us into a sacred sense of masculinity, to ground us in the spiritual and emotional life of men, we are confused about power. Having no positive, male mode of personal power, we react to the omnipresent feminine: we push it away, degrading and trying to dominate it in ourselves and in women; we submit, trying to become nice men, good boys. Overly passive or overly aggressive, men are often, at their core, lost. We vacillate, dependent, somehow needing to separate, unable to commit, unable to leave."

Six Basic Keys to Mind-blowing Tantric Sex

Every journey begins with a single step.  The journey of the soul can sometimes be a difficult one, and sometimes be an easy one.  Of the different ways our souls may choose to make those journeys, taking the road that leads through our sexuality can be one of the most troublesome, as well as one of the most rewarding.

A key to great sex: Eye Contact!
eye contactTantric sexuality shows us ways that we might take that reward and double it, then double it again, then spin it around and amplify it, and then send it out so that it comes back to us amplified yet again.  Imagine that you could do that.  For most people, it will be a difficult thing to imagine.  And yet, great numbers of people are drawn to Tantra every year; many of them seeking only pleasure; many of them seeking enlightenment.
The vast majority of those seekers receive both the spiritual blessings and the better sex.  They go hand in hand.  If you’re expecting or wanting the one without the other, you may be surprised to find them intertwined.
Readers may find the techniques described here to be similar to or the same as things already learned in yoga, meditation, intense exercise, etc.  The basics of tantric sexuality are really fundamentals of many forms of energy work or spiritual practices utilized in various traditions to move and/or transform the life force energy.

The Secret about Tantra and Sex

Via Ramesh Bjonnes

The spiritual practice of Tantra, this practical path of self-realization, has often been misunderstood and misrepresented. In ancient India, for example, Tantra was often practiced at night in secret by Vedic priests who were bound by dogma not to admit to its powerful transformative effects. In part because Tantra often was practiced in secret at night, it is often associated with black magic in India. In the West, however, we often equate Tantra with sex. But why?

According to noted yoga scholar Georg Feuerstein: In the West,Tantra has most commonly been reduced to “a mere discipline of ritualized or sacred sex. In the popular mind, Tantra has become the equivalent to sex. Nothing could be farther from the truth!”
