A Counterpoint to the Pelvis, then back to it!

As a counterpoint to some of my recent writings on the pelvis at places like mulabloga, I offer you this poem:

The light you give off
did not come from a pelvis.
Your features did not begin in semen.
Don't try to hide inside anger
radiance that cannot be hidden.
~Rumi


And now back to the pelvis with my recent post at Elephant Journal:

Do Pigs Like Snoo Snoo?




This one was totally buried in the blizzard, but here the weathered piggy is melting free from the great mass o' snow.

Traditionally pigs are thought to like doo doo, but I question whether that is really true…

But I know for sure that we humans try to steer clear o' that shit, when there may be wisdom in sticking with even unpleasant emotions just a bit…

New article at Elephant:

Feelin' like doo doo?

Is Yoga Creative or Sexual?

My recent post at Elephant journal (The Sex of Yoga and Joy of Everyday Life) was brought in as a part of an interesting, but hardly prudish, discussion at Yoga in the Dragon's Den (Practice Report, Confessions of a Yogic Prude).

I responded to a thought that was brought up at the Dragon's Den about the use of the word "sexual" to describe the energy in yoga practice in my latest post at mulabloga:

Sex & Coffee?




The question might be: could I really have this coffee without people having had sex? Also yoga: could I really do yoga without the mechanics of sexual reproduction somehow affecting the overall experience? After all, it was a sexual union that brought my body into the world, and my body also appears to have a similar capacity for contributing to the creation of another life. Might it not be a good idea to honor the sexual aspect of experience? Do sex and yoga ever cross paths? Read more at Elephant:

Living imperfection perfectly.

Right now, it seems the thing to do is to live my imperfect Brooks-goodness. And to live this admittedly imperfect situation with the best of my wits in every moment I am aware of a choice.

In other words, instead of trying to live perfect dreams from my imagination, I live my unique and surprising life. Doin' it!

In answer to the surprise prompt from #reverb11 for February, "What question am I living?"



Foundation: strong, sure
Power: incessant, flowing
Love: tendrils unfurl.
