Spirituality and Making Love

Reclaiming our bodies in the context of Western Culture obviously includes how we eat, sleep, and exercise. But it also includes how we appreciate and own our sexuality. Too many religions have marginalized or shamed sexuality, and that inherently isn’t spiritual. I say this because spirituality embraces all things. Strangely enough in Western Culture, people are more okay with watching various levels of extreme violence, but if you show a penis or a vagina, people immediately get upset or embarrassed.

But there’s nothing to be uncomfortable with concerning our sexuality. Our sexuality and our genitalia are innate aspects of us. It is ridiculous that I even have to emphasize it, but because of the level of shame people have been taught around sexuality, I have to. Furthermore, sexuality can go beyond simply continuing the species, which is its primary function. There is wonderful creative and enlivening energy in orgasm, and it can fuel many aspects of your life (as well as be extremely grounding and nourishing if you are awakening).

Normally, I focus on spiritual sexuality in terms of the individual because there is so much deep connection that can happen in our own spaces. If you haven’t read the following blog post, I really encourage you to check that out before reading on:

Understanding Spiritual Sexuality
However, when you have a dedicated partner or lover, there is an opportunity to really drop into amazing spaces of love. It can often require a lot of heart work because of the emotions that come up the deeper you go, but with a lot of love, communication, and space, you can transform your sexual unions with your partner into a profound place of abiding love.

Love Is Always Here
Love is always here. The emotions and orgasmic energy that people often crave are already within you. This is the first step to learning how to make love to your partner from the spiritual perspective. That’s why I emphasize owning your sexuality in a personal spiritual sexual practice. That practice is where you can find out just how deep and expansive your sexual space can be. There can be no confusion around whose issue it is in that space. If there is shame, it’s your shame. If it’s frustration with the outcome, it’s your frustration. Conversely, if there is profound deep union, then that’s all you too. You won’t be confusing the space of union as necessitating a partner, which is a big realization for most of you.

Since you are learning that love is always here, you can enter into a sacred sexual space with a partner and not need anything from them. This is the natural evolution of owning all aspects of your love, including your orgasm. The other person is not in charge of you feeling anything. The other person simply is a lovely partner in the given moment and the closeness you’re about to have.

Furthermore, when you are in love with yourself and need nothing from your partner, you can more fully see and appreciate whatever your partner does have to share and how they prefer to receive. If s/he can’t offer much emotional connection or can offer a lot, it’s okay. If it’s a short romp in the bedroom or an extended love-making session, it’s okay. If it’s fireworks in multiple orgasms or no orgasm at all, it’s okay. This is the power of owning your love. In doing so, you make space for all of you and your partner and whatever divine experience wants to arise in your sexual connection.

Deepening in Sexual Connection Through Disappointment
However, most people aren’t so deeply in love. This immediately brings additional partners into the bedroom and none of the ones you probably would have wanted to have invited. Desire, craving, expectation, and attachment to an outcome all wander in with you (and with your partner if they haven’t addressed these issues). Since this describes most couples, it should be addressed, and it should become a practice to be with sexual disappointment.
For instance, you were ready for a raging all-nighter, but your partner is flat out exhausted from work. All the fun ends way before any fireworks could be set into the ground much less ignited. You are thoroughly disappointed. Rather than try to hide this disappointment with a dishonest response or a dismissal of your partner (which would only make him/her feel bad about something that is not his/her issue), say what you were hoping for. Talk about the connection you’d like to have, and talk about making time for it. Even more importantly, appreciate what your partner did have to give and let them know that your disappointment is your own issue and that you’ll work on it.

And you should. That is the nature of the spiritual path. The above example is simply illustrating the need for honesty in your sexual space. Any dishonesty or holding back creates a divide between you and your partner. These little schisms build up over time, and then pretty soon one or both of you doesn’t want to have sex anymore. It may seem like a small thing, but most things in life are small things that build up into major issues over time. Regardless of how well your partner can hear your honesty (which is their issue), truthful communication is just as important in your sex life as in any other part of your life. And if disappointment is what is present for you, then it should be acknowledged, but not blamed on your partner.

Honesty and Communication: Sex and Love-Making Basics
Look, I know what I’m saying is Sex 101, but it bears repeating. As with many things on the spiritual path, a lot of the wisdom of life is very simple. Spirituality shows us the path to the deep union inside of us. From that space, it gets clearer and clearer when we or our partners are holding back, being dishonest, feeling uncomfortable, and a lot of other things. Love-making is super powerful magic. To really unlock that magic with a partner means to open as deeply and fully as you can. With that opening tends to come a lot of upset emotions at first. In “Sexual Healing With a Partner,” I talk about using this space of love to hold someone while they process out old pain. The deeper you go together, the more likely you are to trigger different wounds even if they are unrelated to your partner or your sexual space. Issues such as lack of self-worth and self-hatred are prime targets to get churned up in the depths of loving connection you can share.

Which only makes communication more critical. If you don’t acknowledge it, now there is something unsaid between you. You’ve created a small schism, as I mentioned earlier. If you do acknowledge it, you can let it go. Your partner’s job in this instance is simply to be present and holding you in someway that feels right for that moment. It’s not usually a time to step out of love-making or deep physical connection. This space has created the right moment for deeper healing, and typically after something heals, the level of connection and love you both feel can intensify because now there is even greater space.

The Love Hold
Finding the way you both enjoy being held best is a wonderful exploration. It can be a first and last stop in your love-making. What’s spiritual about it is that it is meant to be a place of simply seeing your partner. The yab-yum position is a time-honored position where one partner is seated more or less cross-legged (depending on comfort) while the other partner is seated facing them in their lap with their legs around their partner. There are other ways to find your initial love hold, and I encourage you to use it with your partner to stop for a moment. Just as meditation is a means to stop and pay attention to yourself, this love hold that you and your partner figure out together is a way to stop and pay attention to each other. It can be a lovely way to check in about each other’s days, what they’re feeling, and what they’re feeling in the relationship. Relationship check-ins in this way make it difficult to hide. The body has too many obvious ways that it may try to run away, and to be this close to your partner makes those ways even more obvious. The more a partner does try to run away from this space suggests that many problems are brewing in your relationship. It’s something to consider.

Your love hold with your partner doesn’t have to be moving towards sex. Once again, spiritual sexuality isn’t about going anywhere. It’s about being fully connected and present with whatever person or situation is in your sex life. You can be fully closed or naked. In the instance of a heterosexual couple, the man can be erect and inside his partner. This is a particularly powerful connection, and I like to remind ladies that in this position you are holding a man’s most vulnerable physical attribute. Bringing more attention and intention to how you hold his penis with your vagina can be a subtle (or not so subtle) level of honoring and connecting to him and how he is offering himself to you.

Melting Into Deeper Sexual Union
Before any of the usual fun stuff begins, breathing together is another nice way to continue to see your partner and to connect to them. This may also be as far as a session goes together. So much can happen on the energetic and emotional plane without much physical action. This can seem counter-intuitive to a lot of sexual ideas and certainly to the nonsense mucking up our media (Consider the ridiculous romance movies as well as porn videos that are partially defining how a lot of people think about sex). In a space of seeming non-action, a lot of connection can go on.
And isn’t that what a lot of you are really seeking in your sex life? Connection?

In no other place, can people find so much disappointment as sex when they are seeking connection and don’t get it. Orgasms feel great, but without connection, it’s kinda like eating frosting without cake. It was good. It gave you a nice rush, but then you may find yourself hungering for more. Obviously, this kind of craving shows you more issues in yourself to work on, but I am simply making the point that a lot of the best kinds of sex arise from connection. The deeper you are already in emotional and energetic union together, the deeper you can go into physical union, which further spurs the other two. You create a positive cycle that builds upon itself so that you are both fully enjoying a whole lot of cake and frosting together.

Making Space for Distance
Then your time together is done. Whatever arose, arose. Whatever didn’t arise, didn’t. It doesn’t matter. But how we step out of this space is important, and this will very from partner to partner. The deeper you go into connection together, the more important a simple letting go ritual can be. Perhaps you return to that basic love hold you’ve determined together to look at each other one last time. Perhaps you share one last intentional parting kiss–the kiss good-bye. Then after that, you may even want to meditate on your own or do some simple activity to release your partner’s energy and any thing that may have churned up inside of you. These simple rituals are ways to keep us from absorbing our partner’s issues as well as finding that inner solidity within us in case things really got opened up and we felt a little lost, confused, or something else. This isn’t a distancing thing to run away from your partner. It is a re-establishing of energetic boundaries, which is particularly important for my empathetic/highly sensitive readers and students.

Making Spiritual Love
There’s no spiritual position or perfect connection to achieve. Spirituality embraces all your love-making, as I mentioned earlier. Don’t try to achieve union. It’s not achievable. It can only be allowed and melted into because its already here within you. If you try pushing yourself or your partner too hard, then there’s work to be done to understand what you are pushing for. Spiritual love-making encourages a ton of communication because the more you can own your own issues and ask for what you want, the more clearly you can open up as well as learn to not project your issues onto your partner.

The space of spiritual love-making can be rare because so many people are too focused on getting theirs or, conversely, on pleasing their partner. This is a space of love where giving and receiving swap back and forth as you melt deeper and deeper together until hopefully who is giving and who is receiving is forgotten. And you are simply in the bliss of union with your beautiful partner.

The Godfather Part II (Francis Ford Coppola 1974)

Based on a screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo, partially based elements of his novel The Godfather which didn't make it into Part I whilst others were written specifically for the sequel, The Godfather Part II still stands as one of the greatest sequels ever made and the first to ever win an Academy Award for Best Picture. Bringing back the entire original cast, except for those characters that didn't survive the first film, and adding a young Robert De Niro in a career defining role as well as director of the famed Actors Studio Lee Strasberg, The Godfather Part II extended its scope and arguably topped the original, which is a masterpiece in its own right.
Whilst playing off the youth and rise of a young Vito Corleone (De Niro) as a migrant in early twentieth century New York against the moral downfall of his son Michael (Al Pacino) as he becomes the head of the Corleone family after the events of the first movie, The Godfather Part II sees the family business grow as the family moves their business interests into Las Vegas as well as Cuba. But Michael learns that power comes with a price as his marriage with Kay (Diane Keaton) slowly disintegrates under the pressures which come with leading a large crime syndicate and some of his seeming allies turn against him and use those close to him to do so.
Turning in his third masterpiece in a row in two years (after the first Godfather and The Conversation), Francis Ford Coppola did the seemingly impossible by turning in a movie which rivaled and possibly even exceeded the very high standard set by the original. Robert De Niro is fantastic as the young Vito Corleone (played by Marlon Brando in the first film) and The Godfather arguably truly started his career as one of the top American actors of his generation (although he had made Scorsese's Mean Streets the year before) and the screenplay was nothing less than ambitious by being both a prequel and sequel to the original film, perfectly paralleling Vito's rise against Michael's moral fall. Special mention should also go to Pacino, whose portrayal of Michael is nothing less than stunning and still a career highlight. The Godfather Part II was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winning six including Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor and Adapted Screenplay. Possibly the ultimate gangster film, The Godfather Part II once again proved a critical darling as commercial behemoth and one of the best films to have come out of Hollywood. Must-see cinema.

Fifteen Indian Movies That Got Banned By The Censor Board

Bollywood is the largest film industry in the world in terms of number of movies produced every year.  However, apart from all the hits, flops and the average, there exists another brand of Indian cinema which is deliberately kept out of our reach. Films that indulge in strong (read bold) language, suggestive (read vulgar) scenes, gender taboos, Kashmir issues, religion and basically movies which are way ahead of its time.
Here's a list of movies which the Censor Board banned, not that the viewers missed any of it!

1. Bandit Queen (1994)

Bandit Queen was straight up 'offensive', 'vulgar', 'indecent' and almost laughed at the cinematic conservatism of the Indian censor board. The subject was such. Based on the life of Phoolan Devi, this Shekhar Kapur movie was banned due its explicit sexual content, nudity and abusive language, which the Censor Board could not (obviously) digest.

2. Fire (1996)

Deepa Mehta's work is recognised for its global content and appeal. However, closer home, that translates to controversy.  Among others, one such movie was 'Fire' which garnered a lot of critical acclaim worldwide but failed to impress Hindu groups (like Shiv Sena) in India due to its subject, which dealt with lesbian relationship between two sisters-in-laws in a Hindu family. The controversy ended with the leading actors, Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das along with their director Deepa Mehta receiving death threats and Censor Board finally  banning the movie in the country.

3. Kama Sutra - A Tale Of Love (1996)

In a rather hypocritical move, Kama Sutra - A Tale Of Love too faced the wrath of Censor Board which termed it 'explicit', 'unethical' and 'immoral' for the audiences of the nation which came up with the concept of Kama Sutra! This Mira Nair movie, which depicted the lives of four lovers in the 16th century in India, was a hit with the critics but a major flop with the Censor Board and ultimately got banned. We did see it coming.

4. Urf Professor (2000)

Another movie to run into trouble with the Censor Board was Pankaj Advani's Urf Professorstarring Manoj Pahwa, Antara Mali and Sharman Joshi. The movie traces the journey of the protagonist after a hit-man's car and a winning lottery ticket goes missing and the chaos that follows. However, what irked the Censor Board were the 'vulgar scenes' and 'bold language' used in this black comedy, which ultimately led to a ban on the movie.

5. The Pink Mirror (2003)

While experimental movies became the norm, gender issues was still a touchy topic to explore.The Pink Mirror by Sridhar Rangayan is one such movie which brought the concept of trans-sexuality to the forefront. The story dealt with the quest of two transsexuals and a gay teenager to seduce a straight man. No prizes for guessing that the Censor board got offended by the 'vulgarity' in the movie and banned it even after the film garnered rave reviews at film festivals around the world.

6. Paanch (2003)

Paanch, an Anurag Kashyap movie, faced a lot of heat from the Censor BoardSaid to be based on the Joshi-Abhyankar serial murders in 1997, the movie was a thriller with high octane violence, crass language and drug abuse. No wonder, the Censor Board decided to ban the film and people awaiting the release of the movie had to make-do with the pirated version of the film.

7. Black Friday (2004)

Loosely adapted from the famous book Black Friday - The True Story of the Bombay Bomb Blasts by S Hussain Zaidi, Anurag Kashyap's movie was considered too dark to be released in India. The movie faced a stay order from The Bombay High Court because the 1993 Bombay blasts case and remained slated-to-release until the trial got over.

8. Parzania (2005)

Parzania cut open the wounds of Gujarat's scarred past, and received backlash and appreciation in equal amounts. The film was based on a superb plot which revolved around a boy called Azhar who goes missing during the Gujarat riots in the year 2002.  Even though the film won a National Award, its cinematic excellence was not considered enough for political parties to let it screen in Gujarat, where it was fiercely banned.

9. Sins (2005)

Sins is an erotic journey of a Kerala priest who falls for the charms of a woman and gets sexually involved with her. Filled with obsession, lust and his struggles with the norms of the society he lived in, Sins did not go down well with with the Catholics. They thought the film projected Catholicism in a very immoral light. The Censor Board too, had issues with the nude scenes in the film and hence the movie did not see the light of the day.

10. Water (2005)

Water is another Deepa Mehta movie which courted a lot of controversy because of its dark insights on the life of the Indian widow. Set in a certain Ashram of Varanasi, the script of the movie was written by none other than Anurag Kashyap and took up controversial issues like ostracism and misogyny which were alien to the Indian Censor Board back then. No wonder, the movie was widely attacked by protesters and around 2000 fanatics even destroyed the sets of the film.

11. Firaaq (2008)

Another film to deal with the Gujarat riots, Firaaq was reportedly based on true incidents which happened in the riot-torn Gujarat.  Nandita Das was widely criticised for hurting the sentiments of Hindus and Muslims and ultimately the movie got banned. But what came as a major achievement was the fact that the movie finally saw a release date and upon its release, garnered rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

12. Gandu (2010)

If you expected anything else from a movie named 'Gandu', you'd definitely be disappointed. The Bengali movie was a rap musical which created a lot of buzz for its oral sex scenes and nudity. Shot in white and black format, the movie was banned because it 'defied Indian sensibilities'.

13. Inshallah, Football (2010)

Inshallah, Football is a documentary about a Kashmiri boy who aspires to travel abroad and become a famous footballer someday. However, the boy is denied travelling outside the country because his father is charged with militancy. This film was intended to bring out the problems civilians face due to the insurgencies and militancy in the Kashmir Valley, but the purpose was defeated as it was denied the necessary censor certificate because of its sensitive subject.

14. Dazed in Doon (2010)

Doon School is one of the most highly respected schools of the country.  The Doon School had problems with the content of Ratna Pathak Shah's coming-of-age movie Dazed in Doon which depicted the story of a boy who is studying at the prestigious Doon School and the life he leads there. The school did not find it amusing to say the least and believed that it spoilt the name and heritage of the school and hence got the film stalled.

15. Unfreedom (2015)

The most recent one to join this long list of banned movies in India, Unfreedom is a modern-day thriller which talks about a lesbian love story entangled within an Islamic terrorism-related angle. Bringing together two 'taboos' in one package, the Censor Board could not digest the nudity and the lovemaking scenes between the two protagonists. Reports also suggest that the movie was accused of "igniting unnatural passions" and hence was denied release in India, except for a few states.

Psoriasis (say "suh-RY-uh-sus") is a long-term (chronic) skin problem that causes skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin.
Normally, skin cells grow gradually and flake off about every 4 weeks. New skin cells grow to replace the outer layers of the skin as they shed.
But in psoriasis , new skin cells move rapidly to the surface of the skin in days rather than weeks. They build up and form thick patches called plaques (say "plax"). The patches range in size from small to large. They most often appear on the knees, elbows, scalp, hands, feet, or lower back. Psoriasis is most common in adults. But children and teens can get it too.
Having psoriasis can be embarrassing, and many people, especially teens, avoid swimming and other situations where patches can show. But there are many types of treatment that can help keep psoriasis under control.
Experts believe that psoriasis occurs when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and flaking of skin. In some cases, psoriasis runs in families.
People with psoriasis often notice times when their skin gets worse. Things that can cause these flare-ups include a cold and dry climate, infections, stress, dry skin, and taking certain medicines.
Psoriasis isn't contagious. It can't be spread by touch from person to person.
Symptoms of psoriasis appear in different ways. Psoriasis can be mild, with small areas of rash. When psoriasis is moderate or severe, the skin gets inflamed with raised red areas topped with loose, silvery, scaling skin. If psoriasis is severe, the skin becomes itchy and tender. And sometimes large patches form and may be uncomfortable. The patches can join together and cover large areas of skin, such as the entire back.
In some people, psoriasis causes joints to become swollen, tender, and painful. This is called psoriatic arthritis (say "sor-ee-AT-ik ar-THRY-tus"). This arthritis can also affect the fingernails and toenails, causing the nails to pit, change color, and separate from the nail bed. Dead skin may build up under the nails.
Symptoms often disappear (go into remission), even without treatment, and then return (flare up).

777 Oil:

777 oil, a coded drug is used in the treatment of Psoriasis at Central Research Institute for Siddha, Madras (Krishnamurthy et al 1981). The oil is applied on the affected are of the skin and the patients are exposed to mild sunlight for a minimum period of 2 – 3 hours per day. This is repeated till a complete relief is obtained.

In the preparation of the drug, the fat soluble material of the leaves Wrightia trinctoria are extracted into the oil in sunlight. This method of preparation in sunlight is called “Sooriya pudam” in Siddha system of medicine. It is claimed that these fat soluble substances have Keratolytic action.
The role of sunlight both in preparation and treatment is particularly emphasised in this drug. In recent years Photochemotherapy and irradation with ultra – violet rays are tried in the treatment of Psoriasis with notable success (Skripkin, 1981).
777 oil is a single herbal formulation prepared by lipid extraction procedure. This drug is found to be effective in the management of Psoriasis. This formulation has already been clinically evaluated in several thousand of patients and has been proven to be effective for long term usage.
All types of Psoriasis, Dandruff, Fissure foot, Icthyosis, Fungal dermatosis, Ulcerative gingivitis, Apthous ulcers of mouth, First-degree burns.
Oil extracts of 

Wrightia tinctoria ( Swetha kutaja ) : 50% W/V
Oleum Cocos nucifera (Narikela )     : 50% W/V
External use: Application after bath as a thin coating over affected surface. Exposure to morning sun for 15 mins after application. Use fingertips for application on scalp. Use Psorolin bathing bar and or Lumina shampoo for washing hair and body.
Contra indication
There is no known contra indication. Mild skin rashes in some cases are reported over the lesions at the beginning of the therapy .Such lesions will disappear within few days after regular use.

777 oil for psoriasis
Available in:
200ml $16.99
500ml $33.99
1000ml $63.99
“777 oil” is a code drug of the Siddha system of medicine used in the treatment of Psoriasis. The drug is derived from the leaves Wrightia tinctoria by insolation, with coconut oil as base. The present study is aimed at comparing the drug prepared by insolation with that prepared in darkness.
Analytical studies carried out in both the drugs showed difference in acid number without exposing to sunlight. The drugs showed changes in acid and iodine numbers on exposure to sunlight.
Studies on Thin Layer Chromatography showed no difference between the two drugs. However semi quantitative chromatography showed that two spots were more in concentration in the drug prepared in darkness than the drug processes in sunlight. Except one spot all the spots Rf values are identical to raw coconut oil.
In analytical studies carried out in shade dried leaves of Wrightia tinctoria showed the presence of iron calcium and ammonium. Alcohol had maximum extractive matter.

Tips to Help you Stop Worrying

1. Remind yourself that worrying doesn’t stop things happening. Things will happen – or not happen –anyway.
2. Recognise that “What ifs” don’t usually help with problem solving. It’s better to use logic, and brain storm for solutions. Take control of your emotions by using rational thinking.
3. Motivate yourself by something other than worrying. Take a break and do something fun, and then go back to your work again. That positive approach will reap more benefits.
4. Face your fears – and do the things that you worry about. The thought is often much worse than the actual thing you fear.
5. Ask yourself “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” Then, “What are the chances that it will happen? Then “Will you survive it, if it happens, in the end?” Usually, that helps to move us from an extreme and irrational way of thinking to a more realistic, and reasonable way if thinking.
6. Teach yourself a range of relaxation strategies – and then concentrate on them instead of on your different fears. Or, adopt a mindful approach – and keep your focus on “right now”.
