What is it about hidden desire and pleasure?
To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves.”
― Federico García Lorca, Blood Wedding and Yerma
When we were given the topic about desire and pleasure I was writing yesterday and after closing it of it occurred to me, I haven’t said it all about this topic for it has so many layers to cover.
If we want to understand desire in combination with pleasure we also have to be able to take a look at the hidden desire, something we all are familiar with in probably more than one way.
Who doesn’t know the burning desire when you have fallen in love and the other one isn’t yet aware of it, and you are too shy or too filled with fear of dejection to let your emotions and love be known.
Then there is this other kind of desire, the one not always condoned by society or culture, by religion or teachings because it isn’t appropriate to love someone with the same gender. It depends on the society or in other words country and often in combination with religion you cannot come forward with your desire.
It even goes way deeper than that. If we take a look at history there have been many civilizations were sexuality was a sacred gift and was being guarded through priestesses or in temples of Love as well in Nature were the Divine Feminine was acknowledged as being a sacred part of Creation. In the Hindu religion we find many expressions of the male and female sexual energy. Nowadays there is this conflict between the society/religion/dominance that are excluding the equality of the Male and Female Divine Sexual Energy. This has created a lot of hidden desire for it is not always allowed to come forward and show your sense of sensuality and sexuality.
It causes excesses in the material world and society. Domination and use of force against young and old, male and female and sometimes even validated by laws. This has caused so much fear that we can almost speak of a viral sexual epidemic all over the world. And when something is forbidden the desire always wants to find a way or an outlet to be listened to and in actions being brought forward, positive or negative, it wants to flow and merge.
It caused a lot of denial as well for a lot of women, and men alike, to have to deny their own innate natural sensuality. This also caused for a lot of trauma and the need of healing of the inner desire and the sexual energy which is also about creation, being creative, about loving and caring for one another in way lovers should be able to. It is time to come forward and learn how unique this gift is for each of us and how we can create a soul’s expression also through this sensual and sexual energy in a way that is uplifting and uniting. By bringing union within ourselves, we can bring in the loving energy of union between two lovers and will the blocked areas be clear and open so the energy can flow as well within as without, The highest form of sensuality and sexuality is the cosmic merge of the dual based energy lines coming together in a unique union of divine energy and bliss.
By healing our own inner emotional and physical wounds that caused to shut down and shut us of this inner source of desire and pleasure we will be healing not just ourselves. In every interaction that we have, with loved ones, we are able to come forward and show our love so we are no longer hiding our need and desire to connect and be safe within the interaction as well. By trusting our own sensuality cleansed from emotions like shame or guild, pain and sorrow, we can release our own desire and pleasure without causing any harm to anyone else as well ourselves then the hiding is over.
