    On Sensuous Living - A Small But Important Secret 

     

    The question comes up in conversation often for me. What's the secret to sensuous living?  The answer I give often surprise some people... I sense that they expect me to talk about sex or some variety of erotic techniques. But I don't.  I suppose it's because some folks know only my sex education work... Even if we should focus upon the sexual, the secret to sensual living is more foundational than the execution of sexual skills.

    The skills are the expression and result of sensuality.

    Sensuality is not the result of technical precision. 

    So what's the secret that I'm talking about? 

    It's about becoming fully sense-aware.

    This is simple, and yet it's not easy.    At all. 

    We are all so very, very distracted... and our minds are preoccupied with tasks, chores, responsibilities, speculations, planning, regrets, and aspirations. I call these my "thought squirrels". My head is full of thousands of these thought squirrels.

    If I can manage to quiet them down, and shoo them out for just a bit, I notice the amazing world around me.

    Today, the breeze in San Francisco is gentle across my face. The sun is warm on my skin but not too hot. I bite into the wild oxalis flowers from my garden, and it bursts into my mouth full of lemon like sweet tanginess. The moisture of the rich dark soil through my fingers... and that scent of rich wet earth.... 

    The secret to sensuous living is about striving to be fully sense aware and sense loving. How can we take pleasure in a caress if we can't take pleasure in the sense delight of the world around us? 

    I suppose this is one of the reasons why I love to work with flowers and earth in my art. It's so fundamentally about all the senses... 

    The practice of becoming sense aware is a daily one... Here's what I do... Take a moment, any moment, and I go through each of my senses, one by one... sight... sound... scent... touch... taste... and focus on each one on the place I am in at that moment. When I do, I'm reminded of how beautiful it all is... 

    Here in the northern hemisphere, spring is making its long awaited return.
    It's a lovely time to get into our daily practice of the sensuous life...

    with love and lunacy,

    Midori
