With all the negative views about sex in our lives it becomes vitally important to explore the depths of this misunderstood, yet pure and natural phenomenon, from a new, cosmic perspective.
We came into being through the act of sexual intercourse. While we are in a body, this energy underpins much of our lives. Whether we recognise it or not, sexual energy fuels most of our existence.
Unfortunately, most of us have lost or misused the special ingredient of the energy that moves us beyond mere physical pleasure to a deeper and more satisfying state of wholeness. At one time, long before political correctness permeated our culture, humans cultivated sexual pleasure to transcend into higher dimensions of consciousness. Millennia ago, people achieved a higher degree of consciousness, Chi, Ki, vital force, Kundalini, using it to enter a state of divinity. Their spiritual philosophy held sexuality as a divine rite, an expression of union or yoga.
Sexuality touches every part of our lives, and it’s sad that this most pleasurable life affirming phenomenon, the act of creating our very birth, is today tainted with fear, abuse, and general negativity.
In contemporary society, neurosis and deviant behaviour has almost become the norm. Our present social and cultural structure supports separation and has created division among individuals and nations, manifesting in violence, war and in general a world without beauty and love. Western culture uses sex for manipulation – sexy models are used to sell cars, soap and other products – while at the same time suppressing genuine sexual expression. By making sex so powerful, we have also created the perfect environment for neurosis, sexual misconduct and violence.In tantra we learn to cultivate our sexual energy into a higher state of consciousness. instead of ending sex with peak experiences, we learn with specific tools and techniques how we can reach a space of blissful ecstasy beyond peak orgasms and sexual restriction. When sexual energy is controlled and channeled consciously, there is no limit to the human capacity for transcendence
