A while ago, a reader asked us to talk about the spirituality of sex.
If you were raised as we were, in the Roman Catholic Church, you’ll undoubtedly remember sex was something you didn’t talk about. You got the idea it was evil. So how could it possibly be spiritual?
Among the Church’s rules was sex, and even thoughts about it, were evil. Except, of course, within the narrow and strictly controlled confines of marriage. Any violation was sure to send you to Hell for all eternity.
We have always found human attitudes toward sex most interesting. And, we might add, distorted.
The distortion comes from your so-called “authorities” using your normal and perfectly good sexual impulses and desires to control you.
The clearest example of that is your Christian churches, especially the Roman Catholic Church. They have put so many restrictions and prohibitions on sex, it has become distorted far beyond what God intended it to be.
And what did God intend it to be? Here are a few of our thoughts on that:
All of you are sexual beings, even you who do not identify yourselves that way. Being sexual is a good and healthy state. The problems start when, for whatever reason, you repress or deny your sexuality.
But let us start at the beginning. Just what is sexuality from a spiritual perspective?
Sexuality is one way, a powerful way, to return to who you truly are. So who are you?
You are God in human form. Most of you lost the memory of that connection when you decided to incarnate into physical bodies.
Sex, properly experienced, will restore you to that connection with your true self, with God. So what is sex “properly experienced”?
Any loving relationship, particularly a sexual one, will empower you to restore the memory of your true self and your divine connection with what you call God.
The heart of all this is simple: It’s all about love.
Love is the primary purpose of all relationships. Sex is a powerful way for you to express your love for yourself, others, and God.
Love will heal all your wounds, all your sicknesses. It will restore you to that connection with the divine you lost long ago. And a loving sexual relationship is one of the best ways to accomplish that.
Love is all there is. Nothing matters more than love. Nothing.
