Accepting what is, Surrender and recognizing my believes works great, if i stand on a firm base, being in a good relationship with my body, mind and needs.
Even if we are already free of believes and identification with body and mind, we still can take care of our needs in order to live, be healthy and functional.
I can question for example the need to eat/breathe/drink/sleep and so be free of the craving for it, but my body still need to have some food, water, oxygen and sleep. Same is for sexuality or being social.
Conscious sexuality from time to time, especially with myself, is like eating food or washing my body. It is crucial to my Well-Being.
Naturally, some people need more or less of something than others.
If i wish to have a strong supportive base, which upholds me on the path of awakened selflessness, I can practice to work, walk, sing, sports, yoga, eat, talk, write, read, paint, listen, watch a movie, enjoy sexuality etc., while being present in my body. To be able to do, i prepare myself, before doing anything, with a short simple meditation, which connects me with body, breath and awareness. Preparation is a key-factor to anything.
