Homework

Notice how much time you spend with sexually related thoughts. How much of your energy is consumed in that direction and how many of your interactions have a sexual overtone? How far do you go in playing out the fantasies? When does your sexual energy interfere with your commitments of heart? Do you use your sexual energy to gain power or manipulate the situation in any way? Is your sexual life in order?

This week bring a concerted effort to watching the forms and displays of your sexual energy. Notice the positive and negative effects of the energy. During sexual activity are you consumed with greed and desire or is there an affectionate sensitivity to the whole person? What role does intimacy play in your sexual activities?
