Have you ever felt like you are skimming the surface of your life?
We live in a culture rich with opportunities for distraction from the discomfort of uncertainty and the vulnerability that comes with facing the truth of what is right in front of us.
How many times have you brushed off a tense interaction with your partner because you didn’t want to incite the same argument you’ve been having over and over again, maybe even for years? What about when you catch a heart-wrenching glimpse of yourself in the mirror in spite of your efforts to avoid seeing yourself naked? Do you have your own version of escaping into a gallon of ice cream and Netflix instead of experiencing the discomfort of your feelings?
We tend to think about intimacy as a night of hot sex, or a spa day with our bestie. But intimacy is much more than that. It is a practice and a framework for the totality of our lives. Intimacy is not something that exists outside of ourselves and is not dependent on the willing participation of another. It is readily available to each of us in any given moment.
We can talk about truth-telling, authenticity, badassery, self-love, self-care, and slaying the day. We can apply the law of attraction, love languages, and every hack in the world. We can do all the yoga, spa days, workshops, and retreats we can make time for. But without an underpinning of intimacy, our experience of ourselves is soft and dreamy (like the filters we apply to our social media posts) and lacks the kind of specificity necessary to truly know ourselves through and through. With intimacy as the foundational principle of our existence, we position ourselves to suck the juice out of every experience from the bedroom to the boardroom.
