Dr. Patti Taylor: Welcome the expanded love making show. I'm your host Dr Patti Taylor of extendedlovemaking.com and I teach you how to make exquisite love. This is part two of a two part show. Today on this show we are talking about love beyond all words with truth action and presence. Would you like an opportunity to rethink all these terms in the light of Bernie Prior's amazingly clear tantric perspectives? I invite you to open your heart to what Bernie has to say in these upcoming moments and be transformed by his message.

Bernie Prior: Now what I'm saying is essential in lovemaking in the tantric perspective to shift your orientation. Shift your orientation from the belief that you are body to the knowing that you are consciousness and awareness. Our bodies are constantly in a physical change and a biological change they actually represent a metaphysical change a spiritual change that is possible that is what they represent. Tantra is about unifying everything in existence - your existence; your life as a woman; your life as a man; your life in partnership. So tantra is the unification of all actions as consciousness in a real felt way of pure environment. To go beyond the physical body is to enter your celestial body; is to enter your divine body, the body that is truly feminine, the body that is truly masculine.

Dr. Patti Taylor: Welcome back to the show Bernie.

Bernie Prior: Hi Patti - yeah it's good to be here again.

Dr. Patti Taylor: Thank you. And you notice I say open your heart and not your mind so I hope you've had chance to hear part one of our show because we've really been talking about dropping into the place of the heart and out of the ego so... if you're just joining us now I'll just say Bernie Prior is a realized tantric master who's been sharing for quite a while on the topic of peace and love and freedom and truth. And I'm just really glad you can be with us for part two today, and I just invite our listeners to relax and enjoy what Bernie has to say, because that's how it is in your presence. So let's get going.... Bernie you have said that when you are touched by the divine you experience truth - so can you say more about that?

Bernie Prior: Yeah, um, it's like in all of life and let's just centre this around... in lovemaking. We're so convinced that we're the bodies... we're so convinced that the woman is a body - that form - and that the man is a body - his form - and we try to make love and be together from the belief that we are the bodies and yet we know the bodies are born as it were, created, and we also know that they will die and what we also know is that the body keeps changing shape it gets older, yeah? It gets wrinkled, it does all sorts of things and much comes out of the body in terms of emotions, thoughts... all manner of things, ok? And so we have this idea that is unconscious but to make it conscious is to truly be in the true tantric perspective is that whilst we think that we are the forms all that we will ever look for is to bring our bodies together and just burn rubber, as it were, yeah? You know just like that, just bring the bodies together, just animals, no real consciousness in it, no real depth, no real purpose, no real deep tenderness. So we can only go so far while we believe the other is a body. Now what I'm saying is essential in lovemaking in the tantric perspective is to shift your orientation; shift your orientation from your belief that you are a body to the knowing that you are consciousness and awareness. So then you're going to meet each other as consciousness, as awareness that only comes into form now. It's like the universal big bang... Bang! That bang is happening now in which its the hugest orgasm known to the universe where all the planets and stars instantly came into being. So what we're looking at really is to shift our orientation from the known unreal state -  you are a body, I am a body - and actually start to perceive and touch from another place entirely. Now that's going to take everything that you are to really be so present and so clear and so open to that so it's to shift the orientation, shift that idea that she is a form, he is a form, feel through the form in your lovemaking, go beyond the form, breathe beyond the form, be beyond the form.

Dr. Patti Taylor: So what would it feel like? I love that - so it's that knowingness, it's that "Oh I get it!" that "uh huh" moment, that astonishment, that awareness. Can you describe what would it feel like to just touch... from that place, or be touched?

Bernie Prior: OK Well first off I have...

Dr. Patti Taylor: Would it be different for a man and a woman?

Bernie Prior: It would be different  on the surface, as it gets deeper you come into oneness because unity is oneness so in the oneness you would experience no other, you'd be looking out as it were through your eyes but you'd know no other, you would be knowing in your consciousness but you'd know no other, so you'd be in a state of union. So that's what love is really about - oneness, union, where there is no other, so the experience of that is an expanded awareness where as men and women you begin to pick up other realities that make you more than your current experience, so a woman becomes more feminine and a man's eyes just light up because there's something that he's connecting with in the feminine that he's not tasted before, and it's on another finer dimension but none the less it's animating the body anew so that's the first time it's been embodied so what you get to see is our bodies that are constantly in a physical change and in a biological change they actually represent metaphysical change a spiritual change that is possible, that is what they represent, and so in a deeper place we begin to connect with the feminine and with the masculine in an deepening awareness that is actually felt that actually brings the emotional body to a place it's never been before which is unemotional but absolutely passionate, a different frequency, a finer experience for both the men and women where it is possible that their consciousness gets drawn into that place of unity and its a direct experience of an enlightened place of pure love making. So they're entirely different men and women; in that moment they're experiencing where they live and where they function from on another dimension entirely but they come back into the senses, as it were, and here they are, now they've brought that awareness and that very place into embodiment - they're different men and women. Because your bodies are simply an outside expression of what is inside, of what you are on the inside - do you follow? This is why I said in the previous show "what's your address, where are you living from?" So your body is always a display - an expression of where you're living from. So then you can know as men and women how closed you are, how closed the other is, you can feel it because you've limited yourself because of identifying yourself as a victim, identifying yourself with pain, identifying yourself with limitation. What I'm talking about here is you're inviting yourself beyond the victim, beyond limitation, into a deeper place that's not as yet been explored, and that happens in, and through, and beyond the bodies. It's a different place altogether. So that awareness starts to come through your fingers, it even comes through your eyes, and you're experiencing yourself on a physical plane but also a deeper metaphysical plane, a place of being, and that's sheer joy, that's an incredible... that's real enjoyment of being in a real partnership.

Dr. Patti Taylor: that is. Now that's something you could do all the time if you wanted to or knew how?

Bernie Prior: Well, again, just to highlight what tantra really is, tantra is just now about men and women making love. Tantra is about unifying everything in existence; your existence, your life as a woman, your life as a man - your life in partnership. So tantra is a unification of all actions as consciousness in a real felt way of pure environment. You're understanding that? So that means then we will be constantly as men and women engaged in this new place, we'll be constantly challenged by our old familiar ways to bring them to a higher place. That will happen in your careers, that will happen in your children, that will happen in your mind, and in your emotional body. Until you begin to waken to this holistic perspective that will cause you a problem, you'll say "oh no, not the kids again.... not my boss again... not that old emotion again...." now you're going to see them as doors to a finer place where you are practicing as consciousness raising up the vibrations of everything that was a lower vibration so then your engagement of life is always to lift everything in a finer light of the heart, a finer light of pure being so that's a real challenge that invites you to a holistic place. Now that's essential. You cannot make love unless you're beginning to live a more harmonious life outside your lovemaking.

Dr. Patti Taylor: Yeah, I really love your emphasis on the connection between beautiful lovemaking comes from beautiful lovers coming from beautiful beings and a beautiful life. You can't just pluck beautiful lovemaking out of, you know, the garbage can.

Bernie Prior: Well that's also amongst the ugly, you've got to understand the ugliness of the past we've been holding onto, and we've got to see that there's no problem with the ugliness, you know? It's like the ugly duckling, yeah? There's no problem with it, it's lifted you to where you are right now - in otherwords, having an ego is a stage of development that helps to burn us and refine us when we're on fire with something entirely new and entirely different that our lives are no longer in the tantric perspective self centered. They become more expansive, more innermost connected , more in a way of expressing  holism for all beings. That's what tantra is.

Dr. Patti Taylor: That's another beautiful part about tantra, from what I'm hearing - you say is that you also absolutely honor all the ugly you know, because it got you to this moment, there's no... it's not bad that all this awful stuff happened because it got you to now and now you have the choice to take it deeper into the love, if I'm hearing correctly.

Bernie Prior: That's right. Tantra is a true understanding that in the universal form everything is eternally developing so there's no end to development there's no end to evolution there's no end to our deeper refined experiences of what we are from a deeper perspective.

Dr. Patti Taylor: And I'm guessing to resist, to be the victim and find it wrong that all this stuff happened is just wrong but to see the beauty of the trauma and dramas is actually the gateway into the opening and to freedom and truth and all those beautiful experiences that you've been talking about.

Bernie Prior: Yeah, it's a point where we are offered a leap of consciousness, a leap of attraction, a leap of understanding and an embodiment of that understanding is that this universe of form, the sensuality of it all, is aligned with eternal consciousness and it's aligned that it has to keep moving on because if we are infinite then that means infinite change, in other words, infinite potential with men and women and that's what's exciting with men and women and in a partnership, that our partnership will not stay static that it will be dynamically forming. And so we've reached deeper and deeper and higher and higher levels of attainment in our loving in our loving of what we are because we're universal beings, so we actually experience levels of connectiveness in ourselves and in relationship of life that is quite rare at the moment but it will become more let's say developed as more and more people being to see and have a deeper perspective on life.

Dr. Patti Taylor: Well thank you very much for that, I'm really glad I have this recorded, just in case I need to play it over! Anyway, we're going to take a break to support our sponsors.

Dr. Patti Taylor: We're back and I'm Dr Patti Taylor and we've been talking about love beyond all words in truth, action and presence and we're just going to keep going here, so... Hi Bernie!

Bernie Prior: Hi Patti. This is really exciting isn't it?

Dr. Patti Taylor: It's wonderful! So... let's just keep going!

Bernie Prior: Yeah. Just to expand on what we're speaking of, in the tantric perspective it begins to show us that you are It, we are It, we are That, we are the creators of the universe, so you're on the spot. So when you're making love, when you're being together, to see that actually you're on the spot. And people say "you put me on the spot" you know, they say it to their lovers "you put me on the spot" well that's the whole point, the whole point is to be put on the spot and take responsibility for what's happening now. Now please - I say to your listeners - don't look at that on the spot as a problem, look at it as something entirely different. Look at it from to be no the spot is to open up to where that spot takes you; where is it going to take you when you're really profoundly present and real and take responsibility for this moment. It's an invitation into a whole new life, a whole new responsibility where you take responsibility as men and women to transform your mind, to transform your emotion, to transform your direction. So you're deepening in this and the attraction - and again we can going into lovemaking with this - is who would you be without the body? In other words, without your identifying with the body, what would your experience be? So I'm saying that you'd move into another area of profound loving altogether, so who would you be in your lovemaking without identity of the body? Now that's entirely different. Do you see where that would take you? Suddenly you'd be in a new place as a woman, a new place as a man entirely. Still quite rare, but that's what must come here, because it's the identifying with the body and the patterns that tell us "you are this, you are that, this is the woman you are, this is the man you are" they're all patterns. To make love without identifying with the body but to fully embrace the body in every way from pure presence, pure direction, pure surrender - then you've come into a place that's beyond the body, that's creating the body and it would create the body anew. So we would have a new humanity. We would have a new human being; we would have a new man and woman, and your loving will be profoundly new, it wouldn't have any past in it.

Dr. Patti Taylor: (Laughs) I'm trying to think who I'd be without any body while I'm lovemaking - I'm still on that one.

Bernie Prior: Well of course but what I'm saying is...

Dr. Patti Taylor: Because sometimes when I'm lovemaking I feel like I actually go beyond the body so maybe that's where I was...

Bernie Prior: Well you will go beyond the body to a certain degree, but to go beyond the physical body is to enter your celestial body, is to enter your divine body, the body that is truly feminine, the body that is truly masculine. That's where you will go, you'll go to that place. I mean I'll give you a little example of this, this is in my own life... There was a great friend of mine, I used to talk to groups of women - in London, in Chelsea actually - and a friend of mine, I've known her for a few years, we used to really be excited in what we would discover just in our conversations about love, truth, masculine and feminine attraction. And one day after a talk to about thirty or forty women I went downstairs, she was letting me out the front door, and as I turned round to her - her name was Noelle - I turned round to her to say goodbye, as I've done over the years, and as I turned round to give her a hug as we walked out, suddenly I was in another dimension entirely and I was actually inside her body, inside the feminine... an experience it's hard for me to explain but there was this... um... there was this spiral of light that I am, this spiral of light that she is, and another one was introduced, another one came. We were just coming into this ecstatic place beyond body and mind and identity. Now there was no personal intimacy between us just this great love of our being and this was happening and when I came too, as it were, of my senses I had my forehead stuck to hers, my lips stuck to hers, my arms embracing her fully, pulled inside each other, she was the same, just holding each other tight, and she'd experienced exactly the same thing that we'd met in a personal state of pure being as the masculine and the feminine and when we kind of, as it were, came aware of our senses we just stood in this depth of incredible silence and aliveness just looking at each other that we were not separate. Absolutely not separate. Although we could see each other's bodies as the masculine and feminine we were totally one - and I had no relationship with her, only in terms of arranging seminars with her. And then we just burst out laughing - we laughed and laughed and laughed from such a deep place; the joke of ever believing that we're all separate!

Dr. Patti Taylor: I think a lot of people are looking for that.

Bernie Prior: Yeah, that's what everyone wants, because everyone wants reality because reality is knowing yourself but you can't have that as it is - of course you are in a deepest place - but to experience that means the surrendering to who you think you are in the whole of life and in the attraction of the masculine and feminine. So it's a different perspective entirely so the real attraction is when you're not working on purifying each other, you're loving each other beyond that, you're inviting each other into a new place; you're inviting each other into a new purpose. You have real meaning in your relationship; it's to transcend the ego, to transform the ego in your actions and to integrate it in a way that you live.

Dr. Patti Taylor: OK, so you said you're not working on anything and I get it that you're being present as the man, truly present for the woman and the woman feels really safe to open, and things just happen. But now you teach something called the form and I want to bring that up because there is the most beautiful... I guess it's a presentation on youtube where people watch you practicing something our listeners can practice at home and I was just wondering is that something that you might recommend our listeners might practice at home, something they could possibly do with their partners or anyone?

Bernie Prior: Well they would have to come to learn what it's about, either through coming to one of my seminars or we're just starting a teacher training program round the world and there are a few teachers around but not enough as yet.

Dr. Patti Taylor: Well maybe you could just give us a taste of what it is, just so we might get a sense of something they could do if its an energy thing or a physical thing.

Bernie Prior: Well it's very simple, one of the easiest things that can open you up to that place is very simple and that's putting your hands together in prayer - now let go of the word prayer and all the ideas of what prayer is - but the moment you put your hands together around the heart kind of area, the moment you put your hands together in prayer, if you look at your hands, there's wholeness. One hand, the left hand is feminine, the other hand is masculine, that's what they represent, the two polarities of one whole, the true self, that's what they are. If we close our eyes and feel our bodies, so feeling our body's actually the feminine domain, so as we feel the sensation in our body, so we're feeling the sensation in our hands, in our feet, and anywhere we start to feel sensations, just feel the sensations, don't do anything with it, and with our eyes closed, that's the masculine domain of pure mind, so when we've got our eyes closed there's nothing but blackness, if you just look into the deep there's just blackness, if you let go of identifying any forms - though forms, emotional forms that move through - cease identifying them, just feel the sensation, look into infinity and while that's happening just gently, keeping your whole attention in the field of sensation, your whole attention in the field of that blackness, when you begin to part your hands there's a different frequency that starts to pull you in deeper. First it feels like your hands won't part - that's the magnetic pull of union, but in the world of form it is to bring those two halves apart without disfunctioning them from unity, in other words, the masculine and feminine can move in their own right but they do not lose their union, because their inherent nature is oneness. So when you keep your eyes closed and you slowly slowly begin to open your hands a new awareness begins to be known. You'll have to try it for it to happen! A new awareness - the mind begins to open in another place, the heart begins to open in another place, and you have a sense of expansion... there it is, just accentuate, all that you have to do is keep your awareness your attention in the field - I call it a field - of sensation in the body, and just not identifying anything in that blackness, the colors that might move, what is happening is you are learning to disengage the mind from identifying movement from separation. Do you follow that?

Dr. Patti Taylor: Right now Bernie's hands are sort of slightly more than shoulder width apart, his palms are open and his fingers are slightly spread apart and it looks like he is feeling a lot of energy around him his eyes are slightly open his face is very relaxed and it looks like he is receiving a lot of energy.

Bernie Prior: Well what happens is your own being starts to open up inside of you, that's what happens, I can see that you're experiencing it on some level or other as well. The human mind has been made by what we are as consciousness to create - and it's been made to create in single cells for this purpose of knowing ourselves, so everything is in multi-layered functionality - leaves are leaves, trees are trees, ants are ants, men are men, and women are women, and it all seems like it is separate but actually its one.

Dr. Patti Taylor: So do you touch people now when, or you touch their energy field when you're in this state?

Bernie Prior: Well this is why I'm very careful, Patti, about explaining this, because unless you come along you won't get the central core of what I'm speaking about... this is not healing, what I'm speaking of here, I'm actually endeavoring to show that movement, all movement, through mind, is split. The moment that you identify with movement, there's a distance. You begin to distance yourself from being. The mind does it naturally, it's supposed to do that, the mind's supposed to identify a chair as a chair, a man as a man, blah blah blah - it does that, it's supposed to separate experience, to put it into frames, so movement's like a frame shop, there's this movement, there's that movement, this movement... but you're consciousness unifies all movement. Do you understand that? So then what the mind wants to do is always divide, it wants to measure, it wants to calculate - that's what it's made to do. But only for the domain of our sense experience. What we are, we're  the bridge between our sense experience and our non sense experience, and that's great love. So in the first instance when we're kind of born into all this conditioning, the mind is telling you what you are; it tells you up is up, down is down, left is left, right is right - it tells you everything that you are. It's conditional. But the conditions can only point to what's already been, they cannot show you what you are. See, that's got to drop in a little bit. The mind's always telling you what you are, the emotional body's always expressing what you are, but they can't tell you - the instruments of perception that the masculine and feminine use - cannot tell them what they are, they are vehicles of expression, so your mind is a vehicle of expression of the light of being that you are as men and women; your emotional body is a vehicle of expression that can express through it the light of pure being that you are as men and women. When we as intelligents hold on to what the mind says - so in other words, the mind  is measured monday to sunday, and I've had terrible experiences, ok? I've measured them all, and I've done my best to avoid the ones I don't really want, and so I've already separated myself, so that's what's going on, so suddenly your mind is in a pattern, your emotional body is in a pattern, you are being moved in patterns. But what you are is beyond a pattern; in fact, this world is the very cloth that you wove, as pure love; as men and women in the deepest place. You wove this, do you understand? So you can undo these patterns, and you can only undo it by ceasing measuring everything through your mind and emotion; that's tantra.

Dr. Patti Taylor: Wow! Thank you. So we're going to take another break so please stay with us. This is Dr Patti Taylor, and we're talking with Bernie Prior and you can find out more about Bernie Prior at bernieprior.org. And we will be right back!

[break]

Dr. Patti Taylor: We're back! And this is Dr Patti Taylor and we're talking with Bernie Prior. And I have a question for you! Let's get really practical... Couple gets home at the end of the day and they've been kinda stressed out and they're trying to do their best to live as love, truth and presence, and you know maybe they could be doing a better job, but they want to do a better job, and what should they do now? They're like, OK, they're snapping into presence but they're looking for guidance and they've got you on the phone, or they're channeling you or they're turning on this show right now.

Bernie Prior: OK. So I'm going to endeavor to keep this as practical but at the same time I've also got to give the deeper perspective first, ok? That deeper perspective is when you're a man, when you're a woman that is growing in the way of truly wanting to know who you are on the deepest level, growing in the way that you truly want to experience the other on the deepest level, then in that understanding you're beginning to realize that there is a deeper you in there, and there is a deeper woman as your partner, a deeper man as your partner; you may not have met that in your engagements in your partnership, but nonetheless, that's the potential. So it's always to see, in your partnership, potential. You'll never see potential, real potential of growing in love, growing in creativity, growing in abundance in your relationships whilst you don't see and uphold the potential to be more; more than you currently are. And see it in each other. So when you get that, there's a sense of aliveness and excitement that begins to burn away all the old stuff in your emotional body, all the old stuff in your mind, simply because you've engaged a higher deeper potential. So then to be really clear, this is true tantra; be really clear, that in the mental or emotional  - so you've got a problem with your mind is going on, you've got a problem with knots in your belly because of the emotion that's going on - you have to know from the deepest place that that's not what's happening now. They are past conditioning, and not necessarily belonging to you in this partnership; maybe from previous partnerships, maybe from the psyche of men and women since time began - this is as deep as it goes. So do not see the emotion and the mental goings on that's taking place inside of you as a problem; see that they're actually just moving old energy. You can either move with that old energy or you can transcend it. You'll only transcend it if you relate to true potential. So there's a knowingness between you, you've come for... you've not come to argue, you've not come to compete, you've not come to have further pain; you've come to experience a love and a connectivity with yourself and with each other that you've never ever experienced in any other relationship. And you are prepared to give it to the other, to help the other to reach their potential, and in that you reach your own. So there's a higher perspective that we're talking here, so this is a real rush, and you can feel it can't you? "Wow is that possible?" Of course it's possible; but you have to as a man, and as a woman, have a higher potential awareness. It doesn't have to be active, it just has to be a little bud, a little seed of knowing, and that will inspire you. And then you can look at him when he comes home, and he's got all his stuff going on, you can look at him and you can say to him, from a deeper place of your feminine, "I love you... It's all ok; there's something more here. There's something more." And you can say to her,  when she's .... whatever's moving her "I see much more than that in you." And you're not going to try and fix or change her, you're just acknowledging her deeper place, you're acknowledging his deeper place. It's that acknowledgement that's our human potential to grow, and experience much more than a human being ever has, because the universe is in continual growth. So then that's your relationship. Your relationship isn't to the "other". Your relationship isn't to who you think you are. Your relationship is to your growing potential, to always see the light of true potential, which is real love, is here. Relate to that in all things.

Dr. Patti Taylor: To your new address, hopefully!

Bernie Prior: That's right, your new address! Everyone like to move house...

Dr. Patti Taylor: Well that's really wonderful, so we are bringing this show to a close, I just want to ask you - you do workshops around the world, maybe speak for just very briefly on that.

Bernie Prior: Yeah, well, I travel constantly round the world, getting more invitations to other countries. Roughly we've visited around about eight or ten countries a year, a lot of visits to America. I run twelve-day retreats  on the masculine and feminine potential in truth in love, and I demonstrate what I call "the form", it's a practice that unifies the masculine and the feminine and it shows it's an actual demonstration of how just this movement is a mirror of your own existence, how to live in that finer vibration, how to allow it to grow you, how to transcend, transform and integrate greater knowing, greater love, greater purpose and greater meaning as men and women in this universe. And so I speak all round the world, evening talks, long weekends, twelve day retreats, so they will be on my website - bernieprior.org - and in the next few weeks you will see an incredibly brand new website that's going to mirror where this teaching is growing into - so the one that you'll see says "this ones going to explode any moment" because it is and the new one's coming in because true potential is change and allowing that to change. I also run a 21 day retreat, there's one that will be happening very shortly, this recording may not go out by then, but it's running a 21 day retreat on a new man, a new woman, a new humanity, which will include so many many things to bring you into your true power as men and woman, and your true power as a human being and your true power really as a universal being. So yeah, there's much going on around the planet, always open to invitations of people that are truly endeavoring to understand themselves deeper, so any groups that want to contact us, we'll have a look at the invitation and yeah, and give to it.

Dr. Patti Taylor: Well, I must say I've a number of friends who have taken your work and they rave about it, so of course I've just been enjoying you here in wonderful San Francisco. Absolute rave reviews from everyone I know who's done your work. We're going to close this show; you wrote a poem, you read it to me, I melted, jumped up and down, was cheering, and then I found out that's been quite the response from everyone else so I thought we'd close this show by asking you to read this poem for our listeners as well.

Bernie Prior: Yeah. This poem came to me last year and it speaks on many different levels, so you'll hear many many different levels and I hope they inspire you.

In her fullness she came; bursting from the now here
The nowhere from within me
Immediate, radiantly in her full dancing form,
She shone before me.
Enticingly she drew me to know her
Experience her shifting light forms.
Deeper and deeper she sang me
Into her woman, her womb of life experience.
"Manifest me! Manifest me!" She cried.
"Experience me! Experience me!" She sang out so loud.
"Burn for me! Die for me! Do not let go…" she screamed,
"Until it is done; when you and I are one."
What could I do? But hold her tight
In my burning arms of passion, until she and I
Burned no more. As quickly as she came
She disappeared. Did she ever exist?
Was I just dreaming?

Dr. Patti Taylor: Love beyond all words, one more time. So that brings us to the end of our show. Thank you so much for joining us today.

Bernie Prior: Thank you Patti for giving me the opportunity to speak.

Dr. Patti Taylor: It was a total joy, totally blissful.

I just wanted to mention the youtube, if you go to youtube and look up Bernie Prior you can see the demonstration of the form, it's a great little youtube, so I bet you'll do that.
