“Climax,” in ancient Greek, refers to a ladder to heaven.
Imagine being mindful and having the energy take you to a divine experience, a union.
EXERCISE: Focus on excitement during sex; not ejaculation.
There is no destination, just the journey- excitement and pleasure.
Ejaculation, without the excitement phase, is not sufficient to get you there. Make the excitement last for as long as you can. Practice opening yourself. Feel more pleasure, open pleasure, with an open heart and then extend how long you can be present with pleasure and watch what that does. Not only for your relationship with your partner, your relationship with yourself but in the ability to not label, just experience what is happening- then union with the divine. Imagine that for a moment. The resolution after the intense orgasm, will be slow. You can experience union prior to or instead of orgasm, as well. Arousal is the key and being aware, mindful, in your body. Let the energy shoot out of your head, but first, let the energy build. Hold back, manage the energy
EXERCISE: Particularly for men, learning how to manage the excitement and practice letting go is challenging. Go beyond the physical pleasure and surrender to both the masculine and the feminine energy within. Actually practice this during sex
There is a union of self when you allow the feminine and masculine energies to flow freely, not getting in the way, not judging yourself.
