Sexuality is often associated with spirituality in many different ways. Although the talk of sex arouses a strong reaction, and it usually viewed as an obstacle on the path of spiritual development due to the nature of sexual energy.
Sexual energy is the primal and creative energy of the universe; it opens our heart to love and enables us to experience deep meditative states. Many traditions consider the peak moment of sexual energy the death of the ego.
When someone experiences intimacy and reaches an orgasm, we feel vulnerable, defenseless, and carefree, and there is a sense of timelessness. These are the characteristics that are the real nature of our spirit.
Living your life with this level of intimacy would allow the creative energy of the universe to merge with your spirit. Wouldn't that make it more important to be aware of who you are sharing this intimacy with? Yes, it does, and let me explain why.
There Is Nothing Casual About Sex
We have evolved both in terms of our thinking and approach towards life. The freedom of who to choose as a sexual partner without hesitation has increased.
Each time we have sex, we create an energy cord with our partner. Their thoughts, feelings, desires are left as impressions in our aura, which, unless it is cleansed, stays with us.
If the same is done under the influence of alcohol, we lower our natural protective field, which further exposes us to negative discordant energies. If we have sex with a positive person, we are bound to receive his/her positive energy; this is the same with a negative person.
The Power Behind The Act
Sexual energy is one of the most powerful forms of energy available to living beings, but it is only man who has the intelligence to understand what it means. If we learn the true art of sexual healing, we can deduce a way to convert sexual energy into healing and creative energy.
Someone who understands the essence of this unity, of this longing for love and oneness, can also comprehend the meaning of another unity - a yogi unites; a saint unites; a meditator unites. This person is also united in intercourse; his identity merges with the other person, and they become one.
In spite of all of these positive connections, we approach sex with guilt, shame, and indifference, which prevents us from experiencing its true power.
