Playing Naked In The Rain

Celebrate and orientate the self to become whole.

It’s raining. It has been raining for more than 24 hours with the amount of rain surpassing 60 ml (2 1/2 inches) in the process. Last night moments after we had gone to bed, my wife suggested that it would be a good idea to put our cactus plants out on the back deck to get a good nature wash. Since we both sleep nude, the task of gathering the plants and then taking them out into the dark and the rain was done nude. There was no point in getting any clothing wet. We were both laughing as we worked quickly to complete the task. In the process, I tipped one cactus plant onto my right foot getting a few prickles in the process. There was no question about it, we had fun together.

The simple process of playing in the rain taught us a bit about ourselves that was beautiful. Some people would claim that what we did wasn’t good, perhaps even evil.  Jung wrote:

“good” and “evil” are opposite poles of a moral judgment which, as such, originates in man. [CW volume 11]

which basically translates into relativity rather than an absolute truth. We can only hold as truths those things for which we are predisposed to accept as truths. We even deny reality when it gets in the way of what we believe to be true.

My advice is to trust your self and not be bullied by the opinions adopted as moral truths by others; trust your body, mind and spirit.

  1. My parents weren’t nudists/naturists by any means, though our house was quite casual for the time.

    But I still remember the few times when we’d all go outside and ‘shower’ in the flow from the overflowing gutters! Even as a small kid I recognized how wonderful it was!

    Now, I love nothing better than a romp in a warm summer rain!
