- TANTRA & THE PANDEMIC -
Yesterday somebody wrote, “If your spiritual practice doesn’t help you now, you chose wrong”. Hmm, yes and no.
No because there are no right or wrong spiritual paths.
But it could be the wrong intentions.
Any consistent spiritual practice (understanding spiritual practice as any philosophy and practices that will help you to expand your perception of reality and understand yourself better), will be a win, especially in times like this, either you are consciously aware or not.
After immersing myself in several paths, I personally found that Tantric teachings have something special, mainly because they were originally designed not for the ascetic monk but for the householder, they are also non-dogmatic but based on self-experience and finally, historically Tantrics loyalty were to truth alone.
Tantra is a very clever science, that invites us to embrace the full aspect of reality and ourselves, so in moments of crisis, chaos, and adversity, parts of you eventually will naturally come to the surface, maybe the scared you, the confused you, the anxious you, the angry you, parts of you that may have been dormant or repressed (so you can fit in the social norm of a well behaved motherf#ucker ).
Now, this is an opportunity to embrace these aspects of yourself as well, including your primal, raw being, your fear, and your madness, it is an opportunity to breathe on them and tap into a higher self-understanding. Now, emotions are not bad or good per se but energy, so the real question is what you going to do with this energy? This is the message of Tantra, this understanding and the alchemy of this power towards freedom. (Continue in the comments) - 1 hour ago
