On Sensual Living

  1. First of all, I love the term “textured living” and as a writer I know exactly what you mean by working backwards from a sentence. I love it when that happens.

    Years ago, when I saw The Last Samurai, I was so enamored with the way they turned everyday living into an art form. It really stuck with me. Although I naturally have work to do in this regard, I feel that as time goes on I am living more sensually. I try and “feel” through my actions and enjoy the act itself.

    There’s a good section about this in The Power of Now by Ekhart Tolle. I always appreciate a reminder to make my daily life more sensual and textured. A very nice post.

    1. Thank you! I definitely think it takes practice and/or some shifts in perspective to live this way, but if it “feels right,” it’s worth the effort…Oh, and I love when that happens with a sentence, too. It’s exciting! 🙂 Thank you for the thoughtful comment, as always!

  2. The trick obviously lies in training oneself to discern between pleasure and excess. That kind of restraint and self-conditioning is, after all, fundamental to the art of living. And, for some of us, it is a wonderfully enjoyable and challenging exercise in crafting the most pleasing version of oneself. Beautiful words and a lovely post in all 😊
