Most of us stay far away from things that could hurt us or give us a bad reputation? Society has created a list over the years of things we aren't supposed to talk about much less educate & celebrate!
Here's where I get in trouble, I'm sure. I enter into my curious little girl, and I go where I've been told you aren't supposed to go. My little 11 year old can't help but explore the dark cave that leaves everyone in fear.
Once I had penetrated the darkness, what I found was really light. I begin to decolonize all the stories and beliefs that tried to convince me to being in fear and shame in that cave. And I realize that everything has a light and dark side.
It's usually the things that are so powerful that we immediately deem darkness. Why?
SEXUALITY and SEX for most of our society is forbidden, uncontrollable, to be feared, to be tamed in only specific situations. A necessary evil.
Yes, SEX is so powerful... and it needed to be. That's how we're still here as a human species. It needed to draw us to each other. It's energy extends beyond pleasure into our art and creativity. Much of what we see in our world comes forth, is birth, from creative sexual energy. It gives us the drive to want more, be more.
So, as I continue to move through the world, I know that I walk a treacherous path... a path that may make those around me vulnerable. I am a pioneer in my community, and what sacrifices will I need to make to take down this goliath of shame and fear? Do I have what it takes?
What I need is YOU! Your support with your presence and words can begin to show the world that change is needed. You aren't alone in experiencing pain and hurt around sexuality and sex. If we all speak up, we can make sexuality what it is in essence ... just a part of our amazing human experience! We won't be afraid to talk about it any longer.
Much LOVE to you all!
