I Can Have Me and I Can Have You Too

Today’s world is littered with ideologies like “fill up your own cup”, “everything you could ever want or need is inside you”, “the only approval you need is your own” and “no one else can make you happy, only you can do that”.  These ideologies exalt the idea of spiritual, emotional, mental and physical independence.  For some people, these ideologies are liberating.  For other people, these ideologies are painful.

One of the problems that we have today relative to the idea of independence and dependence is that we do not understand that we can have both.  The state of connection and the state of autonomy can coexist in perfect harmony.  In fact, it is the coexistence of these contradictory yet complimentary states that leads to health in relationships.

The Spiritual Purpose of… Ecosexuality

Science has already proven that hugging a tree can be beneficial to your health (http://www.trueactivist.com/science-proves-hugging-trees-is-good-for-health/). But, have you ever had the urge to take your relationship with mother nature to the next level? If so, you may be an Ecosexual.

Ecosexual is a term coined by Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens, who, during their seven year Love Art Laboratory project, staged ecosexual weddings between themselves and the earth, the sky, the sea, the moon, the mountains, and other various elements and entities throughout the nonhuman world. Since then, the practice has drawn many more people who share the urge for intimacy with the natural world, and who may even be “turned on” by it.

When I first learned of this term, and of the people whom it describes, I was very excited. As the creator of sexual wellness products made of crystal, I know what it is to benefit from the beauty and sensuality that is stored within our earth. But I had to ask myself, could I really become aroused by the mud, the water, the sun?

I thought back to the time I tried psychedelic drugs at a friend’s house in Santa Cruz. We were outside, naked, and I happened to sit down on a haystack. I remember first moving my hands around on the hay. It felt so tingly and sensually gratifying  even though it was just a pile of fucking rough hay. Then, I started to notice how great it felt on my thighs and butt as well. So good, in fact, I had to take a few minutes from writing this article just to mentally relive the experience. Needless to say, it wasn’t difficult for me to understand the desire that ecosexuals feel. Sexual energy is an energy just like any other energy. If I remove my preconceptions about what sex is or should be, and imagine myself feeling the warmth of the sun drenching my body in vitamin d; if I imagine myself bathing in nutrient-rich mud, or swimming naked in a lake; it is easy to see the inherent sexuality of communion with nature.

Of course, Ecosexuality is about more than just about dry-humping grass. It’s about respecting and dedicating oneself to preserving our ecosystem. The Ecosex Manifesto written by Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens will explain:

Though I may call myself more eco“sensual” than ecosexual, I love the extra bit of romanticism that this term lends to, for lack of a better term, tree-hugging.

How to Build a House out of Nothing but Nature

In this video, the wizard from Primitive Technology builds a heated house from nothing but tools gathered from the environment. Rocks, Sticks, and Clay. It’s incredible, check it out!


He Writes:

I built this tiled roof hut in the bush using only primitive tools and materials. The tools I used have been made in my previous videos. It should be pointed out that I do not live in the wild and that this is just a hobby. It should be obvious to most that this is not a survival shelter but an experiment in primitive building technology.

This Stunning Animation Follows A Lost Soul Who Meets Death

The short, is by  a small Ireland-based studio called And Maps And Plans. It has received numerous awards and has been shortlisted for the 87th annual Academy Awards.

It is an evening like many others, most likely a Friday or Saturday night, the film is set in a city that is typical of most metropolitan places late at night during the weekend with it’s inhabitants wandering around without any real guidance from place to place.

As you would expect a guy comes out of a club drunk and as he crossed the road a car runs over him. It is a fatal accident. “I just need a little more time” – says the character of this moving story, addressing ‘Death’ who came to pick him up. Just a little more time to fix things, warn the loved ones, maybe remember and understand.

But instead of coming back to life, the soul traces back its own existence through images and old memories, looking for something …

 

For me the purpose of this film is to make it’s viewers quietly reflect on life and mortality. And in today’s work-based busy hustle and bustle life, i think taking time for reflection is something we could all do just a little more often.
