“Love’s mysteries in souls do grow,
But yet the body is his book.” – John Donne
Sexuality is usually portrayed in a dirty and perverse manner in almost every society. It is considered a “taboo” and people refrain from displaying their sexuality openly. We have been conditioned since our childhood to view sexuality in a negative and dirty manner. The age-old notion of “the original sin” perforates our everyday reality. This in turn oppresses our sexual freedom and many people are unable to break away from the restrictions imposed upon us externally and explore ourselves and our sexuality. Our society limits sexuality to a form of guilty pleasure and thus, we are often not able to transcend beyond that meagre thought process and explore various dimensions of human sexuality.
Sexual experiences are the most powerful form of experiences – and through the unison between the two bodies, one can unleash the latent spiritual energy. Our sexual energies are essentially life force energies that connect us to our soul. Sexual practise is seen as a way of awakening our inner consciousness and liberating our spiritual realm. There are many cultures, such as the Tantric, Daoist and Shamanic cultures, that seek to find the connection between the body and spirit. They essential view sexuality as a necessity for spiritual revolution.
“True surrender is true power: the love-force that moves the universe is also the love-force that breathes your breath and beats your heart. When fear dissolves, you no longer separate yourself from this single flow of immense force. Love is continuity with infinite life-force, a oneness of being with no separation. Opening sexually is opening to this flow of life-force. And love is the key to this opening.” – David Deida
Human sexuality is not something that is restricted to the body and physical needs – it renders itself to the mind and the spirit as well. When we degrade sexuality to essentially a physical need, we strip away its potential of being the most exhilarating and intense of all human experiences. And, we fail to recognize the fact that no human experience is devoid of feelings, emotions and thoughts.
“But hurry, let’s entwine ourselves as one, our mouth broken, our soul bitten by love, so time discovers us safely destroyed.” – Frederico Garcia Lorca
It is important for people to break away from their notions of “empty sex” in order to truly enlighten themselves sexually. Sex is an amalgamation of the body, mind and the spirit. And, love is the powerful emotion that permeates sexual energies. Thus, sex is essentially a consummation of love energies.
Many people typically confuse love with relationships and thus attach it all things tangible. However, love has no specific form, it is an idea that binds humanity. And, sex is a form of expression of love.
In our present reality, we tend to weigh everything around us in a materialistic perspective and in the process we forget that our central purpose is to transcend this everyday reality. We often lack the courage to embrace higher states of consciousness and therefore, restrict ourselves to a particular paradigm that we are well acquainted with.
It is only through the acceptance of higher consciousness can be truly evolve into superior beings. So, break the shackles and the boundary walls you have created against your own enlightenment. Embrace your sexuality and let the essential life forces flow through to you. Let your passions and your desires consume you and in turn make you complete as an individual and as en entity.
So unleash your sexuality and let it guide you to your spiritual evolution!
