There is always a choice
Right before you hit an org8smic state
You can lean in, open, accept, surrender, trust
Or you can push it away, shut down, close, limit
No one tells you that the way to org8sm is actually LEANING INTO what is alive right now
True pleasure is making space for what IS and then seeing what is underneath that
then underneath that
And feeling the shell crack of the walls we hold up
to protect ourselves from ourselves
to protect ourselves from the other
to protect ourselves from love.
There is always a choice in every relationship
To lean in, speak up
Or to lie, shut down, start again somewhere else
As if somewhere else we will be different, as if we won’t find ourselves excactly the same.
Feeling the same things eventually.
Every relationship will remind us of the abuser
The things we hate
The things that make our skin crawl making us feeling like we want OUT QUICK.
Just like before every org8sm you might feel like you could die
Like you could lose everything and not know what to do with yourself
at the end of this
Every good relationship will bring up the same thing.
Do you lean in or shut down and hide/defend/go numb?
I suggest you lean in.
Woman on fire is a growing family of women across the world holding eachother as we fall in love with what is alive right now
Not what we thought it should be
Not what our parents said it should look like
Not the pressure we put on ourselves to feel something
But only what is the deepest truth.
Registration closes tomorrow.
