The Necessity of Practice


Practice is preparation. Without practice the human being is unprepared to meet the demands of life. While some species are born "hard-wired" to operate maturely as soon as they enter life, human beings require practice. Nature provides a crocodile with all the necessary capacities to survive as soon as they are born. For all practical purposes a newborn crocodile is an adult crocodile, just smaller. In contrast, human beings require complex exchanges between nature and nurture over decades of experience to cultivate mature capacities. Of the full territory of being human, the majority of life is intrinsically tied to skills that are learned and refined through repeated practice over a diverse range of faculties.

Practice is, at its center, engagement. When you practice you engage the various faculties that the chosen activity requires. The more you engage, the more prepared you become. When you took your first steps in life and began walking you most likely balanced tentatively, teetered and fell. Often. But with practice, as you engaged the activity of walking over and over, you became increasingly more competent, more proficient and ultimately more elegant to move about in the world and meet the demands of your life.

*Penis Lengthening Practices*

3:17 min.

Loren Johnson, now 33 years old, began his daily embodiment practices when he was eighteen. He chooses to practice each day at dawn and sunset. He is a certified teacher in the Mantak Chia Taoist tradition. Loren demonstrates for us his four favorite penis-lengthening exercises. First, he shows us the most well known method, milking from the base to the tip of the penis. He then kneads the reflexology points along his shaft. Next, he squeezes and pumps his penis with his whole palm. Finally, he slaps and taps his penis inviting more blood into the tissues. You can take a complete online video class from Taoist Loren at www.orgasmicyoga.com/class/1478.
