What is Third Stage Intimacy
by David Deida
What is the ultimate pleasure in intimacy that men and women seek? Where is it to be found, once and for all? As many of us have already discovered it is not finally to be found in any specific person we can "own," acquire, or depend on. Neither is it to be found in a carefully arranged 50/50 Relationship with a "safe" man or woman. Rather, it is to be found in the process of open-hearted surrender, of being overwhelmed in love.
This is the secret that all passionate lovers know: in the moment of true ecstasy, we die to ourselves in love, and this surrender itself is our sweetest pleasure. Surrender of self into love is the basis for Intimate Communion.
To admit this pleasure of sweet surrender is taboo in our culture. For instance, our culture expects us to be strong and independent; "surrendering" to love is considered an act of weakness by many people. Likewise, we are always supposed to be in control of ourselves. Yet, when two lovers surrender their boundaries and melt into a single body of passion, they are anything but "in control." In the heat of love-desire, we are liable to ravish our partner or submit ourselves in a way that we would be hesitant to talk about in public.
Most of us have blissfully let go of our boundaries to some degree during orgasm or in the delicious ecstasy of emotional surrender in love. In order to explore the fullness of sexual intimacy, we must be willing to embrace the taboos of extreme pleasure which our society would rather not discuss. Even though most of us have a line that we don't want anyone to cross, we must be willing to explore the deepest hidden Masculine and Feminine desires for surrender in our heart.
If you are willing to give your true gift and express your true desires, you can create perfect intimacy, moment by moment. This kind of intimacy is something you do, not something you have. It is an ongoing practice of sexual union, emotional openness, and spiritual trust. It is a practice of love.
This is one way that third-stage intimacy differs from the psychological techniques offered by most relationship books which deal with our "inner child" or finally getting the love we always wanted from our parents. Rather than looking at how our past has resulted in the present state of our intimacy, the third-stage involves consciously practicing a new style of intimacy in this present moment, and thus the past becomes obsolete.
There is no reason to remain mediocre in our intimate relationships. Step by step, in Intimate Communion, we can breathe new light into our bodies, minds, and hearts, even to the point of unbounded joy. We can understand the stages of intimacy we have already grown through and those we have yet to grow through. We can honor and find humor in the attractive and potentially frustrating differences between the Masculine and Feminine ways of loving. And we can embrace the taboos of love that we secretly desire, so that the depth of our ecstasy in union is no longer limited by the "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" of our time.
This practice of third-stage Intimate Communion is not based on the sex roles of yesterday, nor on the 50/50 idealism of today. Rather, this new style of intimacy is a next step for men and women who are ready to yield their protected sense of separate self into the blissful force of unrestrained love--a step that liberates men and women from past and present confines by requiring them to surrender the fearful boundaries which guard their heart. By understanding the natural flow of sexual energy, and by trusting the inevitable stages in which love grows, men and women can relax into Intimate Communion, the next step in intimacy beyond the 50/50 Relationship.
