many people believe that spirituality and sexuality are mutually exclusive. This bad prejudice comes from patriarchal religions. Moses gave the Jews the law:
"There shall be no prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a sodomite of the sons of Israel. "
this law tells us, that it was common among ancient people that men and women devoted there lives to sexuality. Sacred prostitution by temple-whores was common in the ancient temples. Women and men served as sacred whores. In Greece and Persia the temple-whores were highly revered. These whores married noble men after there period of sexual service.
The Christians copied the Jewish taboo. They did propagate the oppression of women, the oppression of sexuality and the hatred against women. Even now the pope propagates hatred against homosexuals. And at the same time homo-sexuality is most common among catholic priests and monks. The pope does not allow homosexuals through the front door. But his priests and monks invite them into their rear entrance. Without a condom, because this is not allowed by the pope. This is why many catholic priests and monks suffer from anal venereal diseases and AIDS.
Because we have been conditioned to believe that sexuality and spirituality are incompatible, we are torn apart. Many spiritual people reject their own sexuality. By doing so they have lost touch with their body and have become woolly. People who like sex often reject spirituality. They believe that they can not have sex when they become spiritual. That is why they have lost touch with their soul and why they make sex banal and coarse.
It is my conviction that spirituality and sexuality can merge to a higher state of being. For me sexuality is holy and beautiful. Worshipping the sexual organs makes us lofty and helps us to grow mentally and spiritually. Purposeful exercising sexuality and spirituality - like in tantra and tao of love - is a path towards higher development. It makes us down-to-earth and spiritual at the same time. Purposeful exercising sexuality and spirituality is fun, makes our lives better, improves our relationships, gives us better physical and mental health and gives meaning to our life.|||t|247|site_under|*|
