Here’s a great post from The Nude Blogger: What does being nude mean to me? It’s simple, respectful and full of good sense. If you follow social networks news, you may have heard about the nude blogger, as Jessa’s Instagram account was suspended then reactivated after an uproar of her followers. A great win for body positivity advocates accross the world.
In the What does being nude mean to me article, Jessa goes through her own feelings and sensations. Of course, it’s aligned with how most of us perceive nudism and naturism: freedom. Freedom from the dictatorship of brands. Freedom from the dictatorships of labels. Freedom from materialism. Pure freedom!
However, what resonated very well with me was this sense of vulnerability. I wrote about vulnerability after watching Brené Brown’s TED talk. I think vulnerability is an important aspect of nudism. As we strip down from our clothes, we are exposing to the world who we are. We cannot hide behind conventions anymore. And by exposing ourselves, we become more receptive to others, to the surroundings, to nature.
It’s very difficult to express this sensation of complete vulnerability that leaves us in a complete state of receiving. To quote Jessa:
We are left with this air of vulnerability, something so truthful.
In the post I encourage you to read, she goes around what vulnerability does for us and for our soul. I hope you will enjoy the post as much as I had because it resonates well with why I believe naturism is an awesome lifestyle, particularly at that time of the human history, clogged with ridiculous expectations, pressure and artficial needs. Of course, we should not become incredulous optimists, but we should strive at making this world a better place, and nudity can surely help!
Get naked, stay naked, live naked and share the naked love!
