Sex happens to be a sacred religious act.

People don't know it.

They are unknowingly engaged in religious activity almost at all time.

This is not meant to justify or denounce sex. It merely states a fact.

People do not understand why they are so obsessed with sex, why they spend most of their time seeking sex.

They think it is due to bodily primitive instincts.

But it is not.

It is due to our desire to merge with God. This is what a religious act means.

brothels, motels, bedrooms, sex clubs are all temples.

The energy is strong.

Sacred Sex

Awesome post for contemplation:
“Sex happens to be a sacred religious act.”
the words “sacred and religious” do not do the subject justice: because it was religions that put sex into the gutter in the first place.

sex will always be taboo
UNTIL religions, experts, even Gurus that degrade sex into the gutter
are placed into the SAME Gutter they degrade sex into.

Sex is just the Self screwing it-Self because there is no other.

if there is no duality then male and female must be twins of the same Self
– they are perfectly equal,
and one needs the other to sort of work as a mirror to realize the same Self
in the apparent other, twin,
of the same One-Self.

as long as a female allows herself to be degraded by males,
as long as males degrade females – neither can help the other realize that they are twins to the SAME One- SELF.

Any organization, expert or guru that praises celibacy and chastity is degrading Sex into the gutter
THEY belong
and NOT sex.
--
if we are doing what we are doing, like sex, to be one with god ...
then we should celebrate suicide because we don't even need a partner for suicide to make us one with god, samadhi, self.

-- -- really, Really REALLY.

Sacred Sex too

cursing all the experts, gurus, and gods
that condemn sex into the gutter by praising celibacy and chastity:

if we are going to sanctify sex
then we should really celebrate masturbation
because, like suicide, it also needs no partner
to be One with god, Samadhi, Self.

-- -- really, Really REALLY.

It's ORGANIZED religions that denounce sex

Thank you genep, one comment:

It's not the religions that put sex into the gutter but the ORGANIZED religions, the institutional religions. It's important to make the difference between the two because the organized ones which have hardly anything to do with religion and spirituality make all effort to hide the differences. The organized religions are merely political apparatuses disguised as religions aiming like any other political organism to gain control over people and part of this control is to distance you from anything that you may merge into instead of merging into them including sex, free thought, and approaching God directly.

Organized Religion

Which specific religion have you found that is not organized? To me there is NO such thing.
=-=
reality is made up of an apparent duality:
NOT “matter” and Spirit
but the “appearance of matter” and Spirit, Self.
-=-
ALL Religions are organized so that they can ONLY worship gods that
BY definition
make matter appear real.

the instant a religion worships a god that makes matter appear unreal
it vanishes with its gods
into the Nonduality of Advaita, the Universal Spirit, SELF, Kundalini, SAMADHI.

While Samadhi vanishes all appearances of EVERYTHING, all thoughts, to be it-Self, Samadhi, alias Death, Suicide –
... it, Samadhi, Self, manifests itself to thoughts, Mind/body, as Kundalini that reveals reality to be what it is: Unreal. Kundalini does this by derealizing reality – it distorts reality to be what it is: Unreal.

Non-organized religion is spirituality

The real religion is not organized. You equaqte between organized religion and religion and so no wonder you do not find anything which is non-organized religion. When you connect with the beyond directly, when you pray, when you understands the pure meanings of the words of Jesus Christ or Muhammad or the rishis, when you do not do any ritual just because someone told you to do it, when you don't find yourself forced to accept social and political consequences of your religiousness then it is religion, not the organized one. One can adopt a traditional institutional religion (like Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judism etc.) and still not get affected by the organisation or he/she can simply decide that he cuts the middle men and forms his/her own personal religion.

Awareness

Sex by itself is a religious act. But without awareness it has no significance or impact on the individual himself but only on the cosmos. And this is important by itself because in that way, energies and arrangements are sorted out and maintained.

When it is done with awareness, the act is transformative. This time the individual himself is affected spiritually. This time the merging with God is indeed feasible.

The Cause Of None Reproducing Sex!

The Bible's metaphor concerning Adam and Eve is the best revelation of why man have sex for pleasure. Is it sacred and religious? Possibly! [To follow me, read the first 3 chapters of Genesis, I use the (old) King James Version if you use an "online bible".]

There were supposedly six days in the formation of existence and its living and reproducing beings, including man on the sixth, and a day of rest. Then came the need of an earth tilling man (2:5) who was formed from the earth (2:7) and given a territory (2:8-9) with an abstract tree of the knowledge of good and evil to cause this man to hate thorns and thistles to begin the tilling (3:17-19).

But before he could obtain the knowledge of goods and evil something had to happen. First, his diet was not herbal but fruit and berries alone (1:28 & 2:16-17). Then he named everything as a means of segregating himself from everything else (2:19). He then saw, via a dream being asleep when it happened and never told it would, himself being divided into a masculine (material) and feminine (spiritual or ghost) form of himself which caused him to name them woven from man in the single term of woman (2:21-23). And lastly, they are told to leave parents, they supposedly know nothing about since he was formed and she came out of him, and cleave to each other (2:24) as a single flesh.

It has been my observation, having caused 3 first conceptions, 3 second or later conceptions, and having strong, medium and no erections in attempted sex without conceptions, that it is opposing internal natures pulling through the flesh which causes sex for pleasure. The more direct the opposition the stronger the erections, a lesser opposition has a softer erection and no opposition no erections. Thus, Eve's being taken from Adan and the diet change caused internal natures to be opposites, and our upbringing caused differences in the oppositions in people is what caused the different sexual experiences I encountered.

Those experiences does not afford me the knowledge of sacredness or religious therefore, I will allow each individual to determine if it is for themselves.

open awareness

Yea we've all heard this song and dance before
similar to the grinch screaming at his own echo
"you are an idiot". We begin to point fingers
back and forth when in actualality both sides
are right and wrong. Yes sex may be sacred but
meaningless sex isn't. There is a thin between
balance and obsession.

Restoration of the celestial
within the temporal is the return
of basic nature to natural innocence

Great thoughts on Sex

I went through the discussions on sex.
All have great thoughts on it.

Saying The Same

We are saying the same thing. I did not explain that the metaphor of the boy and girl becoming one flesh is the reintegrating of the masculinity and femininity within each individual eliminating sex for pleasure and restoring the intended purpose for it.

Sexual Energy

since he was formed and she came out of him, and cleave to each other (2:24) as a single flesh.

What is true love ?

Sexual energy is a core part of your character and personality,

There are many different kinds of sex, because sexual energy is used in many ways. Obvious

How we use sexual energy will determine a part of our personality or character,

Mind distorts sexual energy if the mind isn't clean.
Clean meaning distorted unnatural to you

Your sexual energy follows compassion and affection rather than gratification.
consulting your soul first about sex rather than the mind

It is the act of giving affection unconditionally
which causes arousal

When you use sexually energy unnaturally
you know it, there is a hollowness or weight, sadness.

Sex is a part of your character and soul
A vibration which can be low or high
it is up to us to decide who we are
and how we use sex.

Can you imagine your true love ?
if you can
What " sex " would be natural to you.
Would it be just sensual pleasure that was enjoyable or something deeper as well
Connection

since he was formed and she came out of him, and cleave to each other (2:24) as a single flesh.

She Didn't Come Out Of Him: Love Is Lust

The Bible's creation stories are not facts, they are metaphors. In carefully reading Genesis 2:18-24 we find a contradiction to Genesis 1 where every animated life type was made before man while chapter 2 forms Adam -- meaning man -- and then forms the birds and land animals. That alone tells us they are metaphors not to be accepted literally.

Continuing the reading we see no help meet -- equal assistant -- was found after forming the other lifes so Adam was put in a deep sleep without being told of the operation but awakes knowing one had taken place which suggests he dreamt the operation to name her woman because of the assumption. However, we know most dreams are messages requiring interpretation and his would have meant the only way man are allowed to live together is for one to allow their femininity and the other their masculinity to remain dormant to create the magnetic effect sex for pleasure is the results of. Otherwise, when a girl ovulated she chose a boy to impregnate her and they would go their separate ways like bears and some cats.

The next verse makes that clear by saying "a man" -- meaning mind able to comprehend all things which both genders are capable of doing -- "must leave [parents]" -- which, according to the reading, neither had but meaning leaving the teachings that boys don't do the things pertaining to girls nor girls do things pertaining to boys -- "and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh" -- making the wife to be either their femininity or masculinity integrate into each and also the body. We have never seen any husband eat, drink, relieve themselves or take medication for his wife, or vise versa, and the other become satisfied further sustains the fact that it's a metaphor.

With that comprehension of the metaphor's meaning we are able to comprehend the meaning of Jesus' teachings to become "born again" is referring to reintegrating one's masculine or feminine attribute into your own and into your flesh. We can see why man are not able to comprehend all things today, both genders are woman are, as Adam's statement suggests, incomplete man being woven from each other and we are controlled by sense perception rather than by intuitive understanding balanced with intellectual reasoning. And we can see why man began to judge things "good and evil" because of the lack of intuition or intellectual reasoning which, combined, overrides sense perceptions giving one understanding.

Thus, love or sex for pleasure is actually lust caused by the magnetic effect of not having both attributes integrated into our being. Therefore, once we complete the metamorphosis of the new birth we overcomes "good and evil" and, as spiritual adults, there will no longer be lust nor the need for living in individual families because we become the family of man .

Sexual energy

your family of man Elias is made up of connection.

My point is connection, the meaning that we create
that we give it

Sex can be sacred connection you can make it or not

Pleasure lust, No you missed the point entirely

"thus Love or sex for pleasure" .... was not my meaning

"there will no longer be lust "

don't have to have lust even now, was always up to you

To clarify my point
Connection and meaning,

The joke is man thinks he transcends sex
When it is his sexual energy that transcends, transforms him.

In limited view of sexual energy, there must be pleasure in order for it to be sexual
There are many animals who do not find sex pleasurable.

The act of sex can be sacred, can be pleasurable
The act is a connection,
A connection that has meaning for all existence
As all existence was created by this act or connection.

just because you transcend the duality of it....
did you think it has No further lessons to share ?
no more truth too it
no further meaning

Rationally it is the force that drives existence
it will always be a part of you

As God you can give meaning, you can create it

Thank you for the lively debate friend

God Bless

Sexual Energy Is Spiritual Energy!

Brother Jack,
The same energy required to become spiritual is the same energy required for sexual intercourse. Indulging in sex excessively hinders one from reaching the higher levels of spirituality. When one is reborn from carnal consciousness into spiritual consciousness their sexual desire diminishes automatically because that energy is redirected toward comprehending life and its purpose. The gratification of learning about life makes sexual desire of little interest because one feels fulfilled as their comprehension of life increases.

I've found the greatest connection is in sharing one's life experiences to aid others to grow in spiritual comprehension. The same energy works in both cases but the fulfillment of understanding is a much longer lasting connection than sexual. One can reasons with the spiritual intercourse long after the dialog for prolonging the orgasm of the initial conversation. What a lasting connection!

Sexually, one has to have the presence of another body to fulfill the connection and once the orgasm is completed our bodies usually feels spent while the body is energized with a spiritual intercourse and the mind is stimulated to seek greater and deeper comprehension. It's because man do not get the lasting and energizing effect from sex that spiritual intercourse provides is why we are constantly pursuing sex.

Sex is a connection but very temporal in nature while spiritual intercourse is mush longer lasting gratification.

That's what I do, my friend, plant seeds of understanding into the minds of man with hopes that some minds are fertile soil which will grow in understanding life and become fruitful.

sexual energy

so we agree sort of.

"Sex is a connection but very temporal in nature while spiritual intercourse is mush longer lasting gratification. "

Sex being a form of spiritual intercourse
As all in from one root

My only closing statement is a story

A Disciple had freed himself from karma
and heaven was open to him
But his master had chosen to stay on earth

The disciple said he would rather be where his master was

Or roundabouts, its not exact but you get the jist right ?

True love
is a core "spiritual intercourse" as you say.

Also your seeds of understanding, how do you grow them ?
they will never stop

God bless

Growing Spiritual Seeds!

My friend,
To grow spiritual seeds one needs only to give objective reasoning to them, as one reasons with them their own spirit is freed to reveal the seeds' meanings and put it in words you comprehend most to allow you to explain them to others. When you explain the revealed understanding you are planting them, hopefully, in fertile soil.

Peace to you, Brother Jack,

AWARENESS is the factor you miss

Sorry to say but you are totally wrong. Transcend the theory and check by yourself in direct experience all these "animal instincts", including and mainly sex, while you are AWARE and you will see how powerful this instrument is, powerful as nothing else.
