Let's get up close and personal for a second.
We live in a world where sexiness is a currency. It creates opportunity, earns popularity, and amplifies the sense of space you occupy. Sexiness nowadays is established on initial image and skin on skin attraction. And it's become an aspirational identity in its own right.
And what's so damn interesting is how many people now are craving intimacy. Intimacy involves being truly seen to the depths at which you dare to see yourself, or to safely dive deeper with someone else. Intimacy relies on connection, trust, faith as mere foundations to its practice and exploration. It's fuelled by a willingness to sit with the murk and the magic, the shadows and the sparkles and anything else that the process of discovery may yield. It unequivocally demands vulnerability, challenging comfort zones and an awareness of self and integrity.
Both have their place, their challenges and their value. But in a world where sexiness prevails, now is the time to ask where we can afford to be more intimate in our lives and what that might gift us in return. Who might we be if we are seen more, heard more, felt more, discovered/uncovered/recovered more? What might our lives feel like and how might it bring us to love life more?
