Why Are People Masturbating in Their Cars?

Sweet-Jeans,


I don’t know if you have been witnessing what I’ve been witnessing, but I’ve been having an experience recently where I’m driving, and I’m at a stoplight or something, and I look over in the car next to me and see a man masturbating.


Does this happen to you?


Perhaps I am just very lucky.


Masturbation can be a really nice experience, but I’m not sure if trying to have an orgasm in a car, while temporarily stopped, or driving, is the best idea?


Maybe people are just looking for a little thrill?


So when I sat down to record a wisdom-teaching video today, what came up, unexpectedly, was the topic of addiction. Of addiction and depression, of which excessive masturbation is a part.


And also, the fact that there are people in this word who have so much money, so much power, so much “influence,” and they still end up killing themselves, or doing stupid things at stoplights.


Why do you think that is?


The world is in crisis, especially America. And people who are scared and nervous will naturally look toward things that are pleasurable so they can release numbness and pain.

I’ve been there!


I’ve wanted to try whatever I could to make my pain go away. I’ve often wanted to escape.

The problem is that in life, there is rarely a quick fix to overcoming the deep wounds of your soul.


The only way out is through, and that requires effort, and practice, and discipline.

I recommend the path of wisdom. It is not for sissies. It is not for those who are superficial.


But damn, baby, it works!


The thing we all know is, you can’t make things better in the world if you haven’t first done some serious soul-searching, and then some serious soul-acting, on yourself.


If you aren’t in a healthy place, Cherie, you can’t help others be in a healthy place. You’ll just be spreading some kind of energetic plague, let alone any physical plagues that might be ailing you.


So get strong. Get capable. Learn, adopt, and grow, the way a tree does. This won’t happen through any external addiction, or by listening to every crazy thought that pops up in your scared, racing brain.


It happens through digging within and finding the rich soil inside you, your own inner wealth. Let that compost renew you. Let it help you grow vibrant and alive. Let it allow you to flow. Then worry about helping others.


When I sit with a nudge for a spiritual teaching video, I usually don’t know what is going to come out. I have the seed, which is planted from the divine, which is why I act.


But these videos take on a life of their own, darling. They’re intimate, unique, true, and free-flowing. And there’s music. And they can help you, if you’re feeling ungrounded or lost.


They don’t help you by making you stay complacent. They help because they penetrate, because they act as the mustard seed that, when acknowledged, can grow to the tallest tree.


And a lot of people aren’t interested in stuff like that. Most people just want the quick fix. I don’t offer that, even though entertainment is part of my specialty. The teachings in these videos, rather, are the juicy goods.


Anyway, I hope you enjoy! Also, I am offering a course rooted in wisdom teachings, in meditation, and in warrior yoga, for men. I think men are getting a big left behind when it comes to all this spiritual evolution work. No one is reaching out to them and making them feel special these days. So if you or someone you know might want some healing, as well as sustainable practices to help wake up, cultivate calm and inner peace, and be invigorated by life, I encourage you (or him!) to apply! Applications close August 14th, 2020—see the top of this page for more info and the simple application procedure.


Love and hugs, MotherJana
