Consciousness:With consciousness comes purer vision - purer
seeing of the relationship of sex and love. Herein is a great unexplored
territory. Becoming conscious requires a willingness to be still,
to sit with, to reflect upon and to integrate experience. Sex of love
provides guidelines, and prescribes tools to find your Way; to find
others who share this Path. Masculine/Feminine
Current order of civilization: In the current order of civilization
monogamous love symbolized by sexual fidelity (faith in the relationship)
is one of the motifs that structures the relationship of sex and love.
Breaking this fidelity is considered a betrayal of love. Sex is used
by love. This is an example of how this order of civilization makes
sex the object of love. This is felt most keenly by women. Men are
sexual objects as well. However, the objectification for each gender
is different. The objectification of women is overt. But the symbol
of masculinity is despised in the current order of a civilization
The penis is covered in Shame.
Dialogue: Dialogue heals. Dialoguing about the relationship
of sex and love will heal. Is there any doubt that these energy fields
stir, motivate, impel and compel?
Divinity: Sex of Love is guided by a spiritual cosmology that
recognizes Divinity -- a Source beyond Life. Sacred traditions manifest
this Truth. In us. And, not of us. This polarity of subject and object,
me and other, I and Thou is phenomenological. It Just Is: a dynamic
tension.... an Erotic energy. What this Is, where It comes and where
It is going are beautiful questions. The answers define Reality.
Erotic: Sex of love asserts sex and love as the fundamental
polarity of human existence. Sex of love is the erotic spark that
Ignited Creation. The inner and the outer, the self and the ego, the
relative and the absolute, the implicate and the explicate, involution
and evolution -- seeing all these as Divinely inspired tensions, the
sparks that Lift Consciousness to the next level. Eros = Purest Form
of love and sex.
Esoteric: The hidden. In religion this manifests in the "mystical".
Imbalance: Sex of love does recommend the softening -- the
opening up to the Feminine. Masculine solar, chthonic energy is Good.
Sex of love is suggesting that the current order of civilization is
suffering from an imbalance in the masculine and feminine psychic
energy, and specifically suffers from the rigidly structured, hierarchical,
and masculine dominated relationship of sex and love. If we want something
different we must allow the Feminine, fully expressed in the feminine
form of love to permeate and soften our collective rigid patriarchal
conscious. Not to destroy masculinity, but to liberate it. This is
to allow the goddess in all Her Manifestations into our collective
and individual consciousnesses. This is a process of liberation which
means that men must be about the business of letting go of patriarchy,
and women about finding a spiritual path to guide them as they gather
collective ego empowerment (otherwise we will go 180 degrees and have
a female dominant civilization). It is not so much a liberation of
the feminine form, but rather integration of the two. This integration
will never happen -- the masculine ego will always dominate unless
sex and love are released from their current bondage. The amount of
suffering caused by the current relationship accounts for more pain
that all other pains combined. The evidence is every where for those
who care to see. Is not the symbol of the feminine, the immanent font
of Life -- Gaia, Mother Earth -- being slowly destroyed? The destructive
power of the human ego has always been there -- there is evidence
that not all early civilizations were "spirit-earth centered".
The unenlightened human ego is rapacious by nature. But now, with
so many of us, this imbalance between the masculine and the feminine
is at our doorstep. The outcome is quite clear: we are drowning, and
will drown, in our own waste. It has happened before. There is no
more effective way to affect the imbalance but to go to the core --
the relationship between sex and love and in becoming aware of what
is, consciously embrace what is possible.
Jesus and Buddha: Jesus was an active lover -- a celibate
wandering the desert. For my passive side I follow the Buddha. These
two men illuminate the way for me in being a Lover. One claims that
"I am the Way" and the other "points to the Way".
Both proclaim Love as the Way. This is not to say that there are not
other Illuminaries. There are. These two appeal to my Gemini nature.
Journey: Relating to your life as a journey is a powerful
metaphor. Is not metaphor a way of communicating Truth? Provisioning
for the journey will require basic meditation and breathing practices.
Without these tools you will not succeed. You will fall prey to the
pathology of the civilization to which you belong.
Jung: Freud is to Aristotle as Jung is Plato. Carl Gustav
Jung is the founder of "depth psychology". His study of
the human psyche revealed that there is more to Life than our personal
history. His place in the annals of civilization is assured. Of personal
note is that in his adult life he had two female "companions",
one of whom was his wife. What are we to make of this?
Life: Sex of Love views humans in relationship to one another
as atoms in the atomic universe. We are packets of energy: Energy
that is becoming Conscious of Itself. This is Life. Our story, our
history is but getting started. Beauty = Sex of Love asserts that
seeking Beauty is a major determinant in the "fitness" that
Path: It is not by accident that so many stories begin with
the words, "Deep in the darkest Forest there
Within the forest there are clearly marked paths sometimes called
trails, with strong admonitions not to wander too far "off the
beaten path". There are many side trails, some are clearly marked
as "forbidden paths". Some are forbidden because they are
life-negating, e.g. murder. (Yet have not all civilizations allowed
killing?) Love requires us to avoid all life-negating activities.
Others are forbidden on the grounds that they are harmful to the mind
- body - soul organism. For example, certain drugs are allowed, and
certain drugs are not. (Even with evidence that LSD had potential
benefits it was still banned). Most civilizations make allowance for
mind and body altering "substances" as contributing to human
development. An argument could be made for the validity of some of
these drugs given historical precedent. Do you follow these paths?
Do you follow the conventional wisdom? To paraphrase the poet "
to follow the path less travelled"?
Wholeness: Sex of love reminds us that we grow by integrating
the biological, mental and spiritual. Between and within each manifestation,
separate and related there is a constant refrain: we are subject and
object, seeking Unity, Oneness, Perfection, and Completeness. These
dualities are Natural, but Wholeness is our Destiny.
