Kinky Thought of the Day

"To experience the fullness of human experience, we need passivity and receptivity as well as assertion.
We need a sense of mystical wonder as well as rational problem solving.
We need to be in touch with what the psychoanalyst Carl Jung called "the shadow" - the weak, limited, degraded, sinful side of ourselves as well as the strong, loving, compassionate, competent side.
We need to move out from under the onus of our egocentric way of viewing life; to abdicate control as well as to take it.
Masochistic submission, in centering on lack, inadequacy and weakness, puts us in touch with the entirety of our humanity."

~ By Dorothy C. Hayden, in Masochism as a Spiritual Path
