* made docile and submissive; lacking spirit, zest, interest, or the capacity to excite.
This will be a post a bit off of what is usual here, but the proximity of the full moon brings up deeper feelings of my inner animal side. I chose the title "who tamed the lioness" because I was thinking on how most people I know, including myself obviously, have become a softer version of themselves. A more domesticable, tamed, version of what they are.
Freud had this theory of deep inner energetic impulses, stronger than our consciousness, that controlled our decision making process. He called them "pulsões" (from latin: action pousser, pellere, pulsum). According to him, the behavior generated from those energetic impulses came from certain inputs of our unconscious being. Of course this was all connected to our sexuality. Everything in Freud is deeply rooted into the eroticly fetished sexuality of the human being.
I don’t agree with a lot of Freud theories, but I can’t blame him for being sometimes so wrong about women psychology, those were very different times (1856-1939), but what brings me here is exactly that same topic. Our sexual energy as primal energy, as source of our most inner desires and truths.
When I walk around appreciating people and life, and when I stop and look also at myself, there’s part of me, as in others, that feels dull, dormant, asleep, greyish.
So I have to ask, are we forgetting to be more wild and less domesticated?
Are we becoming so technological driven, that our sexual energy levels have become more fake and entertaining than real and spectacular?
Well, no one resists the involuntary adaptation of coupling and from coupling comes mating, and with mating comes that softer version of ourselves. But if you’re the dreamer type, the artist, the fool, that is something that once happening means your loosing an important part of your creative juice.
So what can we do to keep that inner sexual impulse alive without falling into wild orchids affairs?
Create. Vibrate and resonate through music. Dance. Especially keep dreaming and don’t be shy to be the way you are. Yes, most people will think you’re a bit out of this world, but others will potentiate the best in you, and that way you will continue having orgasmic joyful ideas, and you’ll continue smiling naturally for no reason at all, except that you feel good in your skin. Your skin...
