Tantra is a philosophy which needs to become an integral part of our daily life.
And the tantra path needs a teacher to point out the direction.
Otherwise, when we come to a crossroad, how do we know whether to turn left or right? How do we learn to look inwards and not outwards?
Eventually, we become more and more attuned to the inner teacher, who is revealed in the depth of our heart. But it does help to have an outer teacher, especially at the beginnng.
And where do we find a true tantra teacher?
It is said that when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
In the words of a Sufi Teacher:
‘ The unspoken poverty of our culture is a poverty of spirit, a real hunger for what the West has forgotten: that not just individual life, but all of creation is sacred…… we are part of the great mystery of creation…..First, we need to recognise that this connection with the Earth is missing, that there is an ache, a loneliness within our heart and soul….. and a grief for what we have lost. Because our soul remembers, even if our mind and our culture try to make us forget…. We are not consumers needing only more stuff, but souls in search of meaning…… like the cells of our body, all of life is in constant communication…… we need to rediscover and honour the sacredness of life.. to feel its heartbeat and hear its presence speak to us……’We are all part of one sacred living whole.’
I sometimes have flashes of inspiration and put my thoughts in the form of words and pictures, on to my twitter, tumblr or pinterest pages, because a picture can say so much.
I have entitled my tumblr page ‘Tantric Massage London – why is it called Tantric when it has nothing to do with Tantra in the true sense of the word?’
I also have a pinterest page at:
If any of these thoughts on tantra strike a chord, you might enjoy taking a look.
