Skinny dip in life.

Please discuss. How does this play out in life?

I’ll start us out. The sensation of skinny dipping is luscious. It imparts a sense of daring and freedom. We’re visually wide open to life and there is nothing between us and the water. We’re in full contact with the experience, no filters or holding back.

This is not the way most of us usually live. We mostly put on our game faces and play parts. Often we’re not authentic. Throttling back our exposure to life, we place concerns, interpretations, resistance, and protections between us and direct experience. We wear masks and insulate ourselves until we no longer live as ourselves.

Today’s message invites me to take down the facades and barriers and encounter life intimately as my natural self. The full-on experience of my raw immersion in life, without reservations, will be refreshing, exhilarating, and freeing. I bare myself to the bounty of life with exuberance.

How about you? What would meeting life head-on without artifice or limits look like for you?
