La petite mort is a doorway.
Only a fraction of the sex we have as humans is with the intention of procreation, yet sex in its essence is inextricable from the creative force within all of us. Whether conception is the motive or not, for a brief moment during orgasm you are connected to the source. Anything that ever was and anything that will ever be distilled into several seconds of euphoric abandon.
Disappearing into the void then slowly emerging back into the matrix of reality.
We can look at the process of creating art like deconstructing the sexual climax. Entering into a trance-like state, becoming completely unaware of ourselves—a conduit for divine inspiration, savoring the relationship that develops with the medium who becomes your most intimate lover. Finding ecstasy in the push and pull between your body and the material. You let yourself get lost in this dance until you reach a point where you must stop before going too far.
Never betray this romance in search of perfection.
