One definition I’ve been playing with … Love is Pleasure. The pleasurable feelings of our own hearts which are ours to cultivate and enjoy. Love is the fundamental energy of the universe. Everything is consciousness, and consciousness is love. The universal energies are benevolent and loving.
You are born with the capacity to love, but you are not born with the art of love. That art of love has to be taught, has to be imbibed. People feel bored with their wives and with their husbands. The reason is they have not been able to contact the other's real soul. They have been able to contact the body, but they have missed the contact that happens heart to heart, center to center, soul to soul. Once you know how to contact soul to soul, when you have become soul-mates, then there is no boredom at all. Then there is always something to discover in the other because each being is an infinity, and each being contains God Himself.
Tantric sex is simple: It is the art of making love consciously. When we bring awareness to the act, we automatically contact deeply with the love that we are. Tantra is embodied awareness, we situate our mind in our body, and we allow the intelligence of the body to flow. We naturally awaken to the love that we are, the energy of love which is always present, always available for us to connect with.
Sex has an evolutionary function. When we raise our sexual energy up through the chakras and circulate it through our bodies, we are using sexual energy in the way it was designed to be used. Sexual energy is life force energy, it is the energy of enlightenment and freedom and liberation. Repression of sexual energy is a form of subjugation and control of the masses, naturally favoured by organised religion, it’s a cultural legacy, held in sway by the busyness and stress of people’s lives. Sadly, we are distanced in today’s world from the power and ecstasy of our own bodies.
This is a conversation between Charles Eisenstein (author of Sacred Economics) and Rex Brangwyn.
i thought it was wonderful, so I encourage anyone with an interest in deepening their sexual connection, male or female, to listen to it. With their partner, if possible. It speaks of the possibilities that occur when the masculine practices pure presence with the feminine. This allows her to fully open her sexuality. This is a very powerful thing, which not all men have yet experienced, so please, listen, and enjoy.
We certainly live in a sex-saturated society, but it is far from a sex-positive culture. Sexual energy is the most profound and powerful source of energy available to us, yet it has been deeply misunderstood, under-utilised and suppressed. Sex itself is often misused. Sexual healing is necessary to reclaim what is natural to us and what has gone missing.
