Sati's Body Touch Massage
“Massage is something that you can start learning but you never finish. It goes on and on; and the experience becomes continuously deeper and deeper, and higher and higher. Massage is one of the subtlest arts. And it is not only a question of expertise, it is more a question of love.
First learn the technique; then forget it. Then just feel and move by feeling. When you learn deeply, ninety percent of the work is done by love, ten percent by the technique. By just the very touch, a loving touch, something relaxes in the body.
If you love and feel compassion for the other person, and feel the ultimate value of him; if you don’t treat him as if he is a mechanism to be put right, but an energy of tremendous value; if you are grateful that he trusts you and allows you to play with his energy — then by and by, you will feel as if you are playing on an organ. The whole body becomes the keys of the organ, and you can feel that a harmony is created inside the body. Not only will the person be helped, but you also...
So be prayerful. When you touch the body of a person be prayerful — as if God himself is there, and you are just serving him. Flow with total energy. And whenever you see the body flowing and the energy creating a new pattern of harmony, you will feel a delight that you have never felt before; you will fall into deep meditation.
While massaging, just massage. Don’t think of other things, because those are distractions. Be in your fingers and your hands as if your whole being, your whole soul is there. Don’t let it be just a touch of the body. Your whole soul enters into the body of the other, penetrates it, relaxes the deepest complexes.
And make it a play. Don’t do it as a job; make it a game, and take it as fun. Laugh… and let the other laugh too.
