Waxing and waning. Ebbing and flowing. These are the tunes of a moon. Part of a moon’s mystery. If moons could speak can you imagine what they would say? They would have a lot to say, that is for certain. I believe that translating the moon’s illumination would yield a truth rich in emphasis and understatement. Moons are humble with their majesty.
Is a moon male, or female? There is the man on the moon, his testimony. Testimony from a man is very different to testimony from a woman. This is something that should always be remembered. Perhaps the energy field that suspends a moon in orbit is female. Perhaps the essence of a moon is female. It does matter.
A new moon. A full moon. Howling wolves silhouetted on hilltops. Feeding vampires caught neckside by moonbeams. Angels riding the high tide. Demons sleeping, deep. Our moon has many friends in this world. Many admirers. It has always been this way. A moon inspires awe in the right people. The right people know who they are; and they are lucky.
Domination is an interesting game to play. We have all spent time trying to dominate – situations, people, opinions. The need to be dominant is a throw-back to our wild. Males and females both do it. Children try it on all the time. Domination is not wholly an unhealthy pursuit, it just depends how far you will go to be the dominator. Take Russia for example, they are busy playing dangerous domination games. They will dominate in Crimea, despite the rising tide of negative public opinion with regards this particular pursuit of power. It would seem that they imagine themselves invincible. Their view is irresponsible, provocative, and it does not sit easy with the global community. Perhaps Russia should give some thought to the fact that they are currently disturbing the balance on our planet. This has consequences. I do not believe that Russia has the right to decide that Crimea needs to be a part of its make-up. Crimea belongs to the Crimeans, not the Russians. In fact, it is peculiarly obnoxious for Russia to be stretching its borders to include land that does not belong under Russia’s thumb. It would seem that Vladimir Putin forgets that invasions did not work well for Hitler in the long run. His big ideas are small-minded. Outdated. In actuality – backward. In fact it has to be asked – who exactly does Russia think it is? It cannot convince anyone that its objectives are honourable, no matter how earnest its self-righteous claims.
Domination is a key factor in relationships. Traditionally, women have learned and played the submissive role. Men have been the dominators. Of course there are many exceptions to this rule, but conditioning has seen to it that men stand head and shoulders above women when it comes to being ‘in charge’. It is refreshing to see the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, making inroads in a male-dominated industry. Politics is an industry, as much as capitalism is an industry. It is encouraging to watch Hilary Clinton at work in her fields of expertise – the adherence to the ways of women bodes well for the future of global diplomacy. There are good reasons why women are usually better at diplomacy than men are. Theirs’ is a learned patience, an inherent understanding of how the world and its people work.
Sex is about domination. Base instinct sees males mounting females in Nature, although it should be remembered that mating in Nature is most often consensual. A male will seldom mount a female unless she has given him the go-ahead. With humans, it is not always this way. There seems to be a subliminal need for humans to demonstrate their prowess – their core ‘power’ – by being the person ‘on top’. Both men and women subscribe to this theory of sexuality and both use their wiles and their ways to make their statement of fact. Be aware that rape is about domination. Slavery is about domination. Domestic violence is about domination, as is child abuse. Think about it. Domination needs careful management. Ungoverned, it creates problems, pain, wars.
Sex is not a word that should make you shy or fearful in this day and age. If it makes you fearful, then you have issues that need dealing with professionally. If your sex is damaged in any way you need to address the subject with a person who is trained to tell you how to deal with the trauma and help you assimilate your experience(s). If you are an adult shy around sex it means that you are immature in your understanding of its power. If it makes you giggle and blush then you are probably Catholic. Catholics and sex have a long history of conflict. Puritans, too. These religious institutions understand the power of sex and as such, will try to control it. Theirs’ is a delusion. The church cannot control the sex of a population. That part of them belongs firmly to Nature. How you choose to express your sexuality is your business. There should not be anyone overly interested in your sexual persuasion unless you are a paedophile or a rapist, in which case you should be named, shamed, and then castrated. A paedophile should not be allowed anywhere near children. If you make the mistake of abusing a child even once – you should never be given a person’s faith again. Ever. For the rest – the normal human beings out there – you are what you are, and you are who you are. No matter who or what you are, understand that sex is a sacred act. It should be. Who you choose as a partner is of consequence and what you do to and with their body is of consequence.
Sex is both give and take. It is a learning. It is not something you are born good at, it is something you get good at. If you can be bothered. In our contemporary society there is so much taking going on that the scales are seriously off balance. People do not take time enough to learn each other well. Men take sex from a lot of women – who offer it willingly to just about anyone who will show them attention. This coupling is neither romantic, nor does it have anything to do with love. It is an exchange of fluids and a flood of oxytocin. Oxytocin is a very powerful hormone. A lot of people are addicted to its effect. This means a lot of people neither care nor worry about where they pull a partner from. A lot of women are looking for princes and a lot of men know how easy it is to flatter the pants off a wannabe princess. Wannabe princesses abound in our society. I hope the men of the future are equipped to deal with the fall-out.
Excellent sex is about love. Love is about soul. It is about a true connection. Pornography is not helpful as a starting block – there are too many people in our world with bent expectations of sex. Hard-core porn and child-porn are particularly problematic – the trade in transgression is out of control. It is not easy to correct a mindset aligned with transgression. How do you stop a world, literally, from screwing itself up further? You remind the people that sex is personal expression. Be careful who you show what. Have some respect. Your demonstration speaks for you in more ways than one. Should you wish to waste your sex on random strangers then know that you are damaging yourself. Worse – you are using people. If you use people you will be used. Your sex will become empty and you will not be fulfilled. To be unfulfilled is not something to aspire to. Too many people use sex as a pain-killer in this fractured society. This is wrong sex. Right sex is a sharing. And do not ever confuse physical intimacy with love. They are not the same thing. If you allow someone to take your body and use it for their own gratification – no matter what fairytales are singing in your ears – you are responsible for the damage done to your psyche. You cannot escape your psyche – ever. Keep it clean.
