I enjoyed reading this article. The author and I share some experiences with body awareness. It is such a liberating feeling that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. A shift is beginning to happen on this world. Our life search for inner peace and increased awareness is growing. Soon another enlightened period with increased body awareness, spirituality (mind you, I did not say religion), compassion will spread upon this Earth.
In this article reprinted by Yoga International and written by Swami Rama, one gains a better understanding of what true enlightenment is. It leads one to the understanding of what most great philosophers throughout history have been saying to the general public. Such greats as Martin Luther King, Ghandi, H.H Dalai Lama, etc. have all mentioned that we are one. Jesus himself stated we are one with the Creator and each other. We are all supposed to each other in such way. Division is humanity’s greatest loss. We are to love one other as one race: THE HUMAN RACE. Once the Brahma view is adapted by all, self discipline will rule the land.
With all that said, nudity will not be such a social taboo. With self discipline and enlightenment, sex will be placed in its right format. Sex will be recognized as the beautiful gift and tool to express a deeper feeling of unity and pleasure solely among consenting Adults with the full understanding of the consequences and responsibility sex brings. Nudity will no longer signify sex nor will it be limited to such ideas. Nudity, nude, nakedness will all signify purity, innocence in its natural form. As I like to tell my yoga students, we were born nude into this world thus THAT is our natural state. So once we all achieve pure enlightenment, we will accept nakedness as well as it should be recognized: the Pure Form.
I think this book would be a treasure in my collection. Children are exposed to violence, cursing and negativity at an early age. Today’s tv shows and music videos also exposed the children to sexuality and skimpy clothing. Have you heard the songs on the radio lately? The lyrics are sexual. So why is this book so taboo? I think this is a brilliant way, a wonderful step to show children and society that nudity is a natural state. That is how God wanna us to be anyway.
My significant other found this link and I was compelled to place it on the blog. We need to contribute if not pass the word around about this project. It is not just for women but it is for the cause of nudity as well. Nudity is a taboo that needs to be enlightened and educated to the masses. It is not on the same level of pornography and thus should not have to share the same platform. Nudity is a state of being. Pornography and or fetish is an activity that promotes sexual feelings/ sexual relations, or sexual healing. They are not the same thing and thus should not be treated as such. Please support the cause. FREE THE NIPPLE.
Brave women. When I say the preview, it reminded me of a time when we, women, had to fight for our right to vote. Nudity is NOT perversion. It is a state of being without boundaries. Being free. Clothes are to protect us from the elements NOT from each other. We are to love each other for our essence/auras.
When I read this article I was interested in learning what the big deal is. It is a shame that we have miseducated ourselves to say that exposing breasts in a newspaper for advertisement is pornography and exploitation of women. I do not understand if these women who volunteered to be photographed with their breasts exposed to have readers of both sexes to see them how can it then be sexists? Nudity is not dirty. Where is that is said that it is forbidden? I have the Bible and it states I am not to get unclothed in front of my brother, uncle, etc. If you read that section of the Bible closely, it is in the context of sex. Sleeping with the individual. So in other words, INCEST is forbidden not the act of being nude. If being nude was a sin then Job who felt hurt and wanted an answer from God regarding his sufferings after God allowed the devil to plague him with boils and lost of children God would have punished him further once he stripped his clothes off, placed dust on his head and sat with his friends who did the same to consul him. Don’t believe me read it for yourself. Read the Book of Job, Chapters 1 and 2. God wanted a relationship with HIM not religion. Before we throw the book at others for their actions, we should prepare ourselves and improve. Nudity is not a SIN. We are not born with clothes and here is an awakening: you may be buried with clothing but you do not take them with you so YOU ARE NAKED when you meet your maker. There is NOTHING to hide. Think of that!
Whether you believe, celebrate Christmas or not, Everyday is a reason; everyday is a season to celebrate life. We are here for each other. We all serve a purpose of love. WE were not created to display the worse of ourselves. That is the nature that was created by us. Love is innate and evil is created, It is demonstrated on a constant basis in nature with the animals. Here is a story of pure delusion, ego and selfishness. What did the child do to deserve this? They arre so many children out there that need quality parents and so many qualified parents. Why did this child have to be used as an instrument of delusion and greed. Revenge. to whom? The mother of the child? She will be hurt and forever changed but if she believes in a higher power as I do, she will recover. However, the gentleman’s soul will forever be plagued with his decision on this mortal world. For he, will have to answer to HIS Creator the destruction of HIS responsibility and HIS role in it.
Please People if not for the season for yourselves, LOVE unconditionally.
I loved this article. I am so happy to be among other enlightened individuals that teach nude yoga. It is a liberating experience. Read the article and see how nude yoga has benefited the students in the article. May the message of nude yoga and its benefits continue to expand.
