Interesting topic for sure. A good friend of mine in Ontario Canada just channeled some great info on the topic of Sacred Sexuality. You can order the CD here: http://www.hereonearth.ca
Big love to All!
I sort of think sex is like chocolate or other indulgences. Unless you're reminded of it, after awhile you stop focussing on it. The problem is that our North American culture throws it in your face all the time. This is sort of unnatural and even tends to dull our responses, as any addiction does over time, so it can be less and less fulfilling and then there's a need to go to greater and greater perverse extremes for satisfaction. Plus it takes our attention away from the truly important things that make sex wonderful - good health and relationships.
Woooow. I finally read all the chapters and really got to say that my eyes were opened. Some parts I didn't fully understand and some I didn't agree fully, but the majority of it sounds a lot like Anastasia. Some of it actually has helped me with just trying to make changes in my life. The whole pendulum of a clock thing is definitely what has been going on with me. I've been vegetarian and have always eaten healthier than most, but whenever I try to go vegan or raw vegan then it backfires and I end up eating crappier. So just being able to recognize that, to keep still, to stop focusing on the enemy, and to start focusing on doing everything wholeheartedly and eat with my body, mind, and spirit and not just my mouth. All of this has really helped me and I feel more in control. I also like how he describes fasting as an opportunity to reset your hunger so that instead hungering for food you hunger for God because your body hungered while you prayed, so I'm thinking I might try that with helping me hunger for healthy raw food.
Also, if someone is only going to read a little bit of the talk then I suggest chapter 6 because I love how he describes love. Love is not a relationship; it is a state of mind; it is fluid; it is natural. I really like what he says about our current situation where sex is suppressed and thus it has become man's central focus. I used to be a member of a church that really suppressed sex and nudity and well let's just say that my state (the state where this religion is most prominent) has the highest rates of rape and porn.
I'm so glad that you posted this Billa because I was wondering about what Anastasia said and thinking that what a life without condoms or birth pills. Too many babies! I first thought, because it seems like guys want it like every 24 hours and I thought this can't be how God wants it to be. I mean animals only want it once a year. But now I understand that there is something behind the sex that people crave and that is the egolessness and timelessness, that divine moment of being elevated. I hope to help my husband and I save our energy with celibacy (without deprivation) so that we will be able to pour so much energy and love into bringing children. It sounds almost impossible and cruel to me, but with the power of meditation and love I think we can do it. I know this is quite a controversial subject for people, but it really is so important and should get much contemplating because it can bring about so much change in the world.
