Let’s see – do I want to meditate right now or have an orgasm. Hmmmmm.
The Huffington Post carried a terrific article called Why Meditation and Orgasm Feel the Same to the Brain.
The article quotes a guru who said ‘meditation came out of orgasm.’ It talks about how the French term ‘la petite mort’ … meaning little death … refers to the period of tranquility one experiences after orgasm. And it had some interesting scientific data about how the brain lights up during both activities.
Meditating and having an orgasm both require stopping what you’re doing, quieting the mind, and letting go of your inner chatter. A lot of deep breathing is involved … and both activities may be performed solo or with another person(s).
Both activities are beneficial to our health… lowering blood pressure, decreasing stress, improving sleep, and boosting our immune system. All that deep breathing fills the body with much-needed oxygen … and the heightened state from meditating and orgasm cause the brain to release our favorite mood enhancer: oxytocin.
Which is why both activities will leave you feeling completely blissed out!
So, which activity might you choose to do today – ‘Om’ or ‘Oh My?’
