Things are coming together, very slowly, in trying to build a model of the universe.
I think I’m going to have to leave god out of it because I have terrible problems thinking about any theological god-models without imagining an anthropomorphic deity with a beard EVEN WHEN the model in question is an eco-feminist gaia-style model. Damn these ingrained culutaral norms!
(Does anyone know a good place to start for historical references on matriachal religions? might do my essay on these)
What I am fairly sure of is the concept of ‘energy’. This is the same as Chi, which I suspect is the same as the christian concept of ‘spirit’.
Breath is important.
Cranial-sacral therapy works, or at least does -something- tangible (first hand experience)
Tai chi does move energy about, or at least creates a tangible impression of it (first hand experience)

I’m becoming convinced that what the cranial people are working with is the same thing developed by eastern taoists . (energy meridians, circulation of energy etc)
Tai-chi and meditation over the last few months have, between them, changed something in me. No, more like released something I’d forgotten about, a sort of emotional splinter I’d covered over in scar tissue but was still there, bothering me unnoticed.
Consquently I feel more together in myself, and more connected to other things. More aware, even if only by a bit, of my own energy and that of those I’m close with.
I can’t begin to explain how much that improves your sex life. 🙂
