Taste of the Body Sweet
(The Sense of Taste)
Taste is one of the five traditional senses. It is the sensation produced when a substance in the mouth reacts chemically with receptors of taste buds. The sensation of taste has been categorized into five basic tastes. Well, I am here to add another one.
The taste of the body sweet is like no other and you will see. Not sweet as in the food that you eat or she is such a sweet little child is that not neat. No, I am talking about grown up in the heat of passion sweet. It is the first sweet flavor known to man. Sweetmeat, the kind that will make you tell your mother to stay out of your business. Such a delicacy is this meat, you will when you partake, say to yourself, this is the best meat I ever ate. It will make you get up early in the morning and stay up late at night. When you taste it, you know that all is right. The body sweet is an experience not everyone has the finesse to enjoy. It is not the side dish; it is part of the main course. Our tongue and the roof of our mouth are covered with thousands of tiny taste buds. It is no wonder that we can taste as well as we do. And taste is the way we know it’s good.
We have between 2000 and 5000 taste buds and each one of them knows what it likes. Taste and smell work hand in hand, the smell draws you there and the taste makes sure you stay. There is not a thing better to satisfy a man size hunger than a healthy serving of savory meat. Don’t bring a knife, you do not need a fork, for this meat is so tender you can enjoy it the way that it is. After all, it is the body sweet. You may ask what is it about it that makes it so swell, if you do not know it is best that I not tell. When you see a couple and it shows that they are in bliss, it is no secret to them what is up with this. Yes, that’s right; they know the taste of the body sweet. It is good for her and it is good to him why would you need more when you have it within. It was created for us not by us.
When we eat something, the saliva in our mouth helps break down our food. This causes the receptor cells in our tastes buds to send messages through sensory nerves to our brain. Our brain then tells us what flavors we are tasting. But how would you know if the brain is confused by the things you add and put on to make it taste and look better. You cannot know how good it is until you know what you’ve got. Organic is the best for us to eat. No chemical, additives or things that are not natural, which is the way we are meant to be. Taste is the weakest of the five senses. This is what they say. For this reason, and some more, the smell and sight must be right for the truest taste to make its way to you. “When people talk about their taste, they’re really talking about the smell rather than the taste,” said Dr. Scott P. Stringer, chairperson of the otolaryngology department at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. This is true there is no doubt, but the smell that is good to you, have to pass the test of taste for the flavor to come through.
Now, some swear off meat and say they would never have it on their plate. Well that is a right and for them it is best. Because to get the best out of what we do, we have to appreciate it for what it is. We are mind, body and soul. We smell, touch and taste the body sweet, and we do not have to be told. Our mind and our soul is another thing, they belong to each one of us. So if you want to know what is on my mind, you have to talk with me. If you would rather not, just watch what I say and do, it is how I think. And as for the soul, the soul is our core. It is who we are.
So, go on and do your thing. What is for you may not be for me, and the things I say and do may not be for you. We are male and female the way we were made to be, I for you and you for me. If that is the way, you want it to be. There is not a thing about us we should not explore, for we are all we have until we are gone. After you and I are here no more, all we know is that it will be the end. You should not and I will not as well, let there be a day when we say, my only regret is that I did not do it my way. Those who rather not partake of the bountiful feast will be quick to give you a reason why you should not. We have but one life and it was given to us for us to live, for this no one else can do. This you must believe.
Remember, now, and this is important, a woman has more taste buds than a man does. So taste up the body sweet. After it is all said and done, it is how you think.
When Hearing is Not Enough
Just as you can look but not see, you can hear and not listen. You first hear, and then you listen. When you listen, you feel the sound of your thoughts and know precisely what is said. Nothing will be filtered by emotion. To hear is not to listen. It is not the same. It takes no effort to hear. This is if you want to or not. To hear is one of the senses. It is there by nature and has no on and off switch. When you focus on what you hear, you will listen. You are early home from work, what is that sound coming from your bedroom. What you hear is someone being hurt, but then you start to listen and it is then that you realize it is not pain that you hear. It is your wife getting thrilled by another man. You surely did not want to hear those sounds though you would not have known if you had not cracked the door to listen.
Hearing is the ability to perceive sound with our ears. I will not spell out the entire process, but the ears do this by detecting vibrations. When an object makes a noise, it sends vibrations (better known as sound waves) speeding through the air. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous matter, as well as anger, fear, happiness and pleasure. There are times when you may hear things even when you rather not. I am leaving you. I have found someone else. The thrill is gone. You are fired. And there are other times when what you want to hear you never do. I love you, yes, yes, yes. You make me feel so good. Please, don’t stop now, I coming, wait for me. You are the best.
What you hear can deceive you, just as when you see an object, person or thing and realize upon closer inspection that it is not what you believed it to be. This is never so evident that when a lover, husband or wife says, “I love you” when all along they are making love to someone else. To take it a step further to a place no one wants to be is when a person hears what is not being said. The need to hear what you want to hear cause you to change the meaning of the sound of the words being spoken. We can turn a run, as fast as we can from what is real, but it will not change a thing. If he does not want you anymore, and she is telling you that she has someone else, it will be the same no matter what you allow yourself to hear. The mind is a terrible thing when it works against you.
There are times when someone will say something to you and they do not want you to listen. They only want you to hear, this is so that they can confuse you later when you tell them what they said. What you hear then, is, I did not say that, I did not say it like that or even, that is not what I meant. Our lives are shaped by how well we know how to listen. Just because you can hear does not mean you are going to listen. We hear with our ears, but we listen with our mind. The words begin to sink in. It is then that you are focused. You are there. And you will see what they really mean when they say the things that they do.
There is a time to listen. There is a time to think. There is a time to talk. Listen, think, and then talk, to know when it is your time is what determines the outcome. These are the things you must know for knowledge to flow. It is the best way to have “give and take.” All will have a chance to express their thoughts. It works best when one talks and one listens. The key is to know when it is your turn. When you listen, you do that, not a thing more. We do this when our mind tells us to. This is how you think what is being said. First, though, you have to be where you need be to hear what is being said.
You cannot be sure of what you have heard if you have not listened. As a result, what you say may not be what you mean. Because you did not hear, what you thought you heard. You can talk and hear at the same time but you will not be listening. If you try, it would be like trying to think two thoughts at the same time. Neither one can be done. Our mind moves to what we are thinking of. There is no dual track for how we think. And a thought will not divide. It is just as no two words can be said, and no two objects can occupy, the same space, at the same time.
You have to be prepared to learn. You must learn how to listen and listen to learn. You have to listen to what you read, listen to what is said to you, and listen to our Self if you want to learn. When we are born, we do not know how to listen. It is an acquired skill. You must have a deep sense of purpose and a strong drive to learn. Not just hear what is said or what you read. When you listen, what you hear has your undivided attention. In so many ways, it is much like meditation. What we listen to can be calming when we feel it; of course, it can be quite disturbing, it depends on what you have to listen to. You have to want more out of what you hear to listen. Until you do, you will just hear. That certainly could be all you want to do.
I cannot say it too many times, our lives are shaped by how well we know how to listen. Just because you can hear does not mean you are going to listen. We hear with our ears, but we listen with our mind. The words begin to sink in. You are focused. You are there, in the moment. And it is then that you know what the words really mean when we say the things that we do.
You cannot be sure of what you have heard if you have not listened. As a result, what you say may not be what you mean. You can talk and hear at the same time but you will not be listening. If you try, it would be like trying to think two thoughts at the same time. Neither one can be done. Your mind moves to what you are thinking of. There is no dual track for how we think. And a thought will not divide. It is just as two words cannot be said at the same time.
When we say what needs to be heard, someone will listen. You should not say a thing until you say it to yourself. And that is called thinking. When we think, we are having a talk with ourselves. You can do this two ways. You think your thoughts to yourself. That is when you talk to yourself and not say a word. The other, which I have done since I was a child, is to think your thoughts out loud. This is a good way to discuss what is on your mind with yourself when no one else is around. No matter what you say, you should make sure to say what you know.
You do not have to say it all, but let whatever you say be the truth. There is a lesson in all the things we say and do. You have to listen to learn and learn to listen. Did you hear me? Are you listening now.
