THE INNER PATH
Human sexual expression is steeped in ignorance illusion and mystery. A landscape of emotion littered with want, desire and anxiety.
Straitjacketed by the pious, the austere fear and reject it .
Romantics glorify it, the ignorant flaunt it.
The over indulgent pervert it as the intellectuals theorize feigning to comprehend it.
In truth it is neither illusion nor mystery. It is not to be feared or understood. It is not to be ignored or abused. It is natural , shameless and one of the most exquisite and profound forms of human expression. Most importantly, sexual expression is a means through which we can touch the divine.
There is, most often, a degree of disparity between how we fantasize our sexuality and how we express it. There is much that goes on in the world of dreams that for any number of reasons -some valid, some not- is never expressed. At the root of this dichotomy is the mistaken notion that sexuality is merely physical. Perceived as only physical sexual expression is reduced to the lustful realm of physical pleasure and gratification. Superficial and fleeting. Perceived as a physical manifestation of the spiritual, sexual expression transcends the purely physical and enters the realm of the Divine. Profound, Joyful and fulfilling, "Essentially it is a spiritual force - pure, high octane creative energy".
Driven by desire and want intimacy is reduced to lust and is expressed in a diverse array of thrill seeking indulgent often demeaning acts of self-gratification. Devoid of compassion, Lust - the most base and illusory form of sexual expression - degenerates to obsession and manifests as an act of aggression.
The phrase, "Making Love", is a feeble attempt to see sex as something more than purely physical. However, this is just another illusion as the underlying energy is still want. You cannot "make" love. Love is not something that is created through a physical process. Love is energy generated from the heart.
Energized by love, a sense of wonder devoid of fear and shame, Human Sexual Expression becomes that which it was meant to be; mysterious, sacred, joyful, shameless and profoundly intimate on a cosmic level.
