Sacred Sexuality pt. 1 ~ By the Seer Almine
There is only one criterion for weighing our actions: do they serve indwelling life or don’t they? If they serve the world of form only, they serve that which is unreal. On the other hand, if actions serve to evolve awareness, then they are aligned with the purpose of indwelling life.
The degree to which sexual acts are enhancing to the indwelling life of participants depends on the consciousness that initiates them. To be conscious is to see the big picture. Conscious beings consider carefully the effects of any act on others. They know that any choice they make must benefit all equally in the evolution of awareness.
Many sexual ‘spiritual’ practices are designed to enhance energy, which in turn increases consciousness, but not always equally to both participants. Using another to enhance primarily one’s own energy can provide short-term energy boosts but will ultimately deplete not only oneself, but also one’s environment. A practice that focuses on self-gain is self-centered, a condition that de-spirals the DNA strand and warps the web of existence, creating karmic repercussions.
The ancient Chinese traditions of the White Tigress women enabled practitioners to remain youthful into their nineties and beyond through the energy these practices provided. Like vampires of energy, there was personal gain to them with little exchange. Tantric practices provide more of an exchange, yet are nevertheless more enhancing to males.
There is a limited amount of power and energy available from the form side of life and a limitless supply from the Divine that breathes life into form . (See www.yogaofillumination.com for information about Devi Satva Yoga, the Yoga of Illumination). The only way to gain energy and power without damaging the web of existence is through enhanced perception. (See “Pathway to Ascension”, a free online course at www.spiritualjourneys.com)
