Erotic Intelligence

Standard

I got to watch some interesting videos today

This one on is about looking at desire from a place of selfishness rather than selfless love for the partner in a long term relationship.

I love how she explains that we need to cross over to the other side and watch this person in his/her fully glory and radiance rather than think of them as an extension of your own. If this is a sort of erotic intelligence, we can all learn it too.

Convergence of energy through self expression

Standard

Excerpt from Vinita Dawra Nangia’s O-zone

Says Dr Deepak Raheja, psychiatrist and director, Hope Foundation,

“When we talk of expressing ourselves, we are referring to our ability to sublimate the libidinal energy, which as Sigmund Freud says, is the basis of all biological fuels that drive us. For a long time, we have forgotten to sublimate this energy into creative expression. Today, we find more and more people able to do so. If the gap between the real and the fantasized self increases, it increases frustration in life. Self-expression helps us feel more complete and helps bridge the gap between the real and the imagined self. This brings us to a more philosophical and spiritual fulfillment.”

Babies have no enemies

Standard

Parenting can make us unlearn and learn so much about life

‘Take a tip from your baby. Look into your baby’s eyes. Imagine what it feels like to be conscious of the world before you have language, before all those labels that scare us and divide things into good and bad, right and wrong. Babies have no enemies. This is seeing from the source.’
