The highest instinct of sex is to surrender completely: to open and release that which lies most deeply within; to open up wide channels for energy to flow through. The astonishing thing is that there is an instinct to open built into every cell of our body. This pleasure of completely opening in unconditional trust and full receptivity is breathtakingly beautiful, because it is a release into that which is utterly pure and real. It is a liberation of awareness into the lightness of Light; a soaring sense of Divine freedom; a complete acceptance of being accepted — an innocent radiance.

This instinct to open wide can move through long held defenses, melt down traumatic blockages and crumble pain built walls until our naked, pure being shines. This is why our complete surrender must be intimate in the deepest sense of that word. This is why it must be a sequestered secret; a splayed opening for the eyes of the beloved alone, an inward slip into the luminous eyes of God.

We only open to the core of our being in ecstasy—is there any other way? It is ecstatic to open; it is ecstasy that opens us. It is similar to how electric power makes an inert machine suddenly come alive. The machine was designed for electricity and it waits in dumb inertia until the current flows. So we are designed for ecstatic opening and release. Ecstasy by its nature opens us and it is ecstasy to yield completely. A moment’s ecstasy, completely surrendered to and carried to the deepest level of being can do more to open us than a year’s worth of need-centered prayers.

When our defenses fall down there is only freedom, only pure Being, only Light and Love in an ecstatic sense of innocent joy. We are free to take this beautiful way; it is God designed, written inside of us rather than inscribed in books. We are the book ecstasy opens. This is the goal of our spiritual life: to be wide open in Love to Pure Being; to live in a wise innocence; to know the freedom of pure Love as creative flow inspiring us to inspire others and bring more Presence and Love, more healing truth and beauty into the world.

There are many ways to open, countless ways to surrender; but one of the deepest, most direct ways is ecstasy without attachment, purging our being from the clinging, insecure nature that would create addictions; freeing us from our long held, fundamental grief that was born when we first closed the doors of our innocent being to the unfolding miracle of the moment of Life.

Come home to innocent ecstatic opening. Surrender completely from every singing cell of your body. Bring all your mind, heart and body into this opening. Shout, laugh and surrender: let thankfulness fill your mouth, flowing in sweet Light from your opening heart.
