Archive for the ‘C.M. gets [meta]physical’ Category

A conversation today with someone who was offended by something I had put on the blog reminded me that I am quite liberal when it comes to views on life. I was toning it down a bit for this blog because I didn’t want to offend any clients, but I realized today that when you hire the photographer you hire the person. And my attitude to life is ‘live and let live’ so I do not try to push my beliefs on others and always appreciate not having others try to convert me. One of the things I am very liberal about is sexuality. But I also apparently have a much broader view of it than many – or most.

Sexuality is life. Being sexual and sensual is being alive. Having desires is being alive.

Sexuality is spirituality.

I was delighted when I ran across the Abraham material and began finding things like this:

Sexual Energy and Spiritual Energy are identical Energy. When you are tuned in, tapped in, turned on–that’s the “turned on”. When Source Energy flows through you, it flows through you. You cannot separate one from the other.

Excerpted from the workshop in Chicago, IL on Saturday, September 23rd, 2000

So many of you spend your lifetimes arguing about what is an appropriate goal. We’re not kidding when we say you cannot get it wrong. There are no actions that are deemed inappropriate as such. Sometimes people say, “Well Abraham, you scare us, because as you talk about absolute freedom, we are afraid that you might give people permission to do bad things to other people.” Whether we give them permission or not, everybody’s gonna do what they’re gonna do, and you can’t get enough laws into place to keep that from happening. But we promise you, no one would ever do anything bad to any other at the same time they were connected to Source Energy. You never connect to Source Energy and lash out against anyone else.

The Sexual Drive Is A Spiritual Desire
But the truth of it is: Well-being is the order of the day. And the rampant sexuality that is the basis of your physical universe is a very good thing. It is the survival of your species. It is the ongoing of the species. It’s what keeps providing the environment of contrast that keeps taking thought beyond that which it has been before.

It is difficult for us to understand how you ever got so crossways of this natural inherent sexual desire that is born within you. It is a spiritual desire that comes forth.

You can legislate it, you can orchestrate it, you can make all kinds of rules and laws about it, and the desire will still triumph. And all your population will do is find greater and greater ways to be deceptive — as they are satisfying this one very inherent desire that is within them.

And so, we’re not great encouragers, you are discovering, of repressing any desire. Your desires are very natural. We are encouraging you to find ways to find vibrational alignment with the desire. So we would be talking in terms of Well-being. We would be talking in terms of a Guidance System that is alive and well.

You cannot feel a desire and be in vibrational harmony with it and at the same time be doing yourself in. But, sometimes, what happens, the teenagers, or anyone, for that matter, who doesn’t know about Energy flow, they don’t know about emotions, they don’t know what their emotions are telling them, they’re out there holding themselves in vibrational harmony with things that don’t feel good. So they’re pinching off their Life Force until they can hardly breathe. And then they’re taking drugs and doing all kinds of things so that they can numb themselves out so that they cannot feel the discomfort of being disconnected from their Source Energy. And in that place of disconnection, in that place of separation from their Guidance System, of course all kinds of things are going to happen… that they do not want but that they are in vibrational harmony with.

…There is great love here for you. Now. We are complete.

Excerpted from the workshop in Phoenix, AZ on Saturday, February 19th, 2000

The hypocrisy around the subject of sexuality is huge. Early on, there were others who were a lot more interested in you satisfying what made them feel good than in satisfying what made you feel good. There were so many things that you felt inclined to go this way, that you were forced to go that way, that at an early age, you made a conscious decision that if it felt good, it was wrong. And if it felt wrong, it was probably right.

Excerpted from the workshop in San Rafael, CA

Take it or leave it, I hope it gave you something interesting to contemplate. –C.M.

It amuses me how many people come to this site and check out the “sensual” page. We have five physical senses (plus our non-physical ones) with which to enjoy this life. You never know what I might post on that page. But I am glad I put it up there to tease you a little bit. Were you expecting ice cream to be licked out of a belly button?

Have one of the simple pleasures denied you even for a brief while and it reminds you not to take your pleasures for granted, but enjoy each and every one. Savor each moment of satisfaction, of joy, of passion, of delight.
Appreciation is the key to keeping your pleasures coming, so appreciate, appreciate, appreciate … !DSC_8109

Today I had a conversation with my best friend that was a clone of so many of our conversations.  I wanted to do something I’ve been waiting to do and the prominent words in his response were ‘soon’ and ‘possibly’, which in his speak means my intentions are good but don’t hold your breathe because it won’t be happening in your immediate future.  Frame of reference – my ‘soon’ means okay let’s do it now or at least by tomorrow and his ‘soon’ – as far as I can tell to date – means sometime before we die.

I said, “Now.  Live now and worry about tomorrow, tomorrow”.
I told him, “now don’t you think that is a much better philosophy to live by”.  He looked thoughtful, but we still didn’t do what I wanted to do – Now.  And later when I thought about it I realized how perfect.  If you live now and save worrying for tomorrow, well … technically tomorrow never gets here so that means you never have to get around to worrying and how wonderful would that life be?

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get him to see that yet … but soon…!

This moment right now is what each of us has to live. We can never reach out and bring tomorrow closer. So why wouldn’t we find a way to fill this moment with all of the joy, exuberance and love we can muster?fireworks-va-beach

What is your standard of JOY? How high do you set the bar? Do you expect to be happy? Maybe even delirious? Do you believe that it is your right to be happy?girl-smiling-on-horse2
