"O" is for Orgasm. 💜💕💙
Orgasm derives from the Latin word orgia, which describes a pagan religious ceremony in which people became ecstatic—so ecstatic that their bodies were bursting with divine energy & they were able to lose themselves in time-stopping bliss. In the word orgasm we see our origins reflected in language, reminding us that in earlier days humans gathered together in large groups to perform rituals with the intention of deliberately moving into ecstasy. Attaining orgia was a way of praising and expressing gratitude to Mother Earth, extolling the marvel of her creation. With simple dance steps, singing to the rhythmic beating of the drum, and celebrating for days on end people became almost drunk with the divine, accessing gloriously heightened states of sensuality and sensitivity. Participants returned from the ceremonies rejuvenated, over-flowing with love and zest for life.
Today few opportunities for expression of orgia exist. There has been a shift away from emphasis on the physical body toward emphasis on the mind. Instead of sharing energy by dancing and singing together, people are more likely to meet in large or small groups to exchange ideas, discuss, argue, or gossip. We have become disconnected from our bodily sensitivity and lukewarm in our physical responses; as a result we experience a lack of fulfilling orgasm during sexual exchange. In this restricted environment sex loses its natural healing and regenerative powers. Man & woman have lost touch with the uplifting spiritual connection once regularly accessed through the physical body.
The repression and suppression of normal, healthy sex that has prevailed for the last few thousand years of civilization has had a severely polluting effect on the beautiful, loving, natural expression that sex is.
But there is more to human sexuality than the physical ability to reproduce. Nature did not give us the captivating mystery of sex simply for quick male ejaculation and prolonged female gestation. In humans there is a higher dimension to sex—there is more to the meeting of male and female than meets the eye. ~ Diana Richardson
