Practice What Feels Good

Life is supposed to be fun — it is supposed to feel good! You are powerful creators, and you are right on schedule … Savor more; fix less. Laugh more; cry less. Anticipate positivity more; anticipate negatively less … Nothing is more important than that you feel good — just practice that and watch what happens.


Love’s Desires

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must need have desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;

To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

Kahlil Gibran in The Prophet

Making Love by Osho

“Let your making love be more like a happening than like a making . . . How can you make love? It is not something like doing: it is not an action. It is a state. You can be in it but you cannot make it. You can move in it but you cannot do it. You can be loving but you cannot manipulate it . . . “

“When you make love, be possessed. Move slowly, touch each other’s bodies, play with each other’s bodies. The body is like a musical instrument. Don’t be in a hurry. Let things grow. If you move slowly, suddenly both your energies will rise together, as if something has possessed you. It will happen instantly and simultaneously together. Then only tantra is possible. Move now into love . . . “

Eternal Romance

I am not afraid to tell you, “I love you.” Your mind may say, “How can you love me when you don’t even know me?” I don’t need to know you. I don’t need to justify my love. I love you because this is my pleasure. Love coming out of me makes me happy, and it’s not important if you reject me because I don’t reject myself. In my story, I live in an ongoing romance, and everything is beautiful for me. To live in love is to be alive again. When you recover your integrity, you always follow love. You live your life as an eternal romance because when you love yourself, it is easy to love everyone else. You love so much that you don’t need anyone else’s love to make you happy.

Don Miguel Ruiz

Bliss and Spirit

“Spirituality is not religion. It is a path for us to generate happiness, understanding, and love, so we can live deeply each moment of our life. Having a spiritual dimension in our lives does not mean escaping life or dwelling in a place of bliss outside this world but discovering ways to handle life’s difficulties and generate peace, joy, and happiness right where we are, on this beautiful planet.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Love in You

“The love that you search for everywhere is already present within you. It may be evoked by any number of people or events. A mountain can evoke this love. A sunset can evoke this love. But finally, you must realize you are this love. The source of all love is within you.”

You have love; you are love. You do not need to find it outside of yourself. Remember this, specially when times are tough. I love you. Thank you.

Humberto Braga on Relationships


A big reason intimate relationships don’t last is because, while they may connect on a level of psychological familiarity, financial harmony, sexual chemistry, or intellectual alignment, they lack mutual fascination and emotional playfulness.

True love inspires us to be better people, uplifting each other. Without it, life becomes predictable and stagnant. When we allow ourselves to be playful and fascinated with life, we never stop growing and surprising each other. Our souls come out to dance, and we connect with our deepest, liveliest, raw passions and emotions.

When a partnership is engaged in this way, their experiences and quality of connection mutually amplify. They regularly become enthralled with each other and passion is regularly rekindled on all levels. If there is playfulness and fascination, there is emotional depth and intimacy.

When this happens, then there will always be love when the body becomes sick or old, when the sexuality fades, when the limerence is long gone. If there is mutual fascination and emotional playfulness, you will dance with the rapturous rhythm of life to the very last note.

by Lao Tzu in Hua Hu Ching on Chapter 69

A person’s approach to sexuality is a sign of his level of evolution. Unevolved persons practice ordinary sexual intercourse. Placing all emphasis upon the sexual organs, they neglect the body’s other organs and systems.

Whatever physical energy is accumulated is summarily discharged [through orgasm], and the subtle energies are similarly dissipated and disordered. It is a great backward leap.

For those who aspire to the higher realms of living, there is angelic dual cultivation [transmutation]. Because every portion of the body, mind, and spirit yearns for the integration of yin and yang, angelic intercourse is led by the spirit rather than the sexual organs.

Where ordinary intercourse is effortful, angelic cultivation is calm, relaxed, quiet, and natural. Where ordinary intercourse unites sex organs with sex organs, angelic cultivation unites spirit with spirit, mind with mind, and every cell of one body with every cell of the other body.

Culminating not in dissolution [orgasm] but in integration [sublimation], it is an opportunity for a man and woman to mutually transform and uplift each other into the realm of bliss and wholeness.

The sacred ways of angelic intercourse are taught only by one who has himself achieved total energy integration, and taught only to students who follow the Integral Way with profound devotion, seeking to purify and pacify the entire world along with their own being.

However, if your virtue is especially radiant, it can be possible to open a pathway to the subtle realm and receive these celestial teachings directly from the immortals.
