Sages of the New Covenant
Nothing in is bad in God’s whole creation; everything is nectar. It is man alone who has transformed this full cup of nectar into poison.
Religion and culture pour poison in the mind of human being to think that sex is sinful.
Religious leaders create conflict and human being engages in a battle against God ordained life-force – sex. Our body is a creation of God or manifestation of God. It is sacred.
Sex urge is given by God and hence it is good, it is also sacred. It has to be used according to the will of God or plan of God.
TO LOOK AT SEX AS SOMETHING NEGATIVE OR INFEROR IS AN TO INSULT GOD.
“ Behold, I was brought forth in inequity, And in sin my mother conceived me.”
The above verse is one of the mis-understand verses in the Bible. This verse is often quoted to denote that sex is an sinful act. Among all the Biblical personalities, King David was one who was conscious of indwelling God in him, which is why he said the following:
“The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? “
– Psalm 118:6 (NIV)
Actually what King David implied in saying ‘in sin my mother conceived me’ was that my parents have not acknowledged the likeness of God in them; and his mother had conceived him with lack of awareness of her divinity. He didn’t mean that his mother conceived him through a sinful act of copulation.
The simple truth is that man-woman union is based on God’s plan to procreate. The existence of human is based on sex. Human beings cannot be separated from sex. God has made the energy of sex the starting point of creation. While blessing Adam and Eve, God said the following:
“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis . 1:28
But the hue and cry has always been, “Sex is sin. Sex is irreligious. Sex is poison”. Because of this, the holy act of copulation is done with guilt in mind. Religious people term sex a sin, what God Himself does not consider sin! This conflict within us has destroyed the possibility of showing true unconditional love to our spouses. Only a guilt-free sex can flower into love. Man has been taught to fight against the God’s plan by the religious and political leaders. We have filled man with antagonism towards sex and the result is that love has not flowered between spouses. End the enmity with sex. If you want to shower of love in your life, renounce this conflict with sex. Accept sex with joy. Acknowledge its sacredness. You will be surprised that sex can reveal its sacredness to the degree of your acceptance.
The primal energy of sex has the reflection of God in it. It is obvious it is the energy that creates new life.
And think of what we have done to suppress sex! We have had to develop an insulting attitude towards it; we have had to degrade it; we have had to abuse it. We have had to call it sin; we have had shout those who indulge in sex are contemptible, are to be despised. Religious leaders teach children to abhor sex. “sex is sin, sex is dirty,” they say.
During his college days, Swamiji had met one teacher in Palayamkottai. She used to complain that she is a symbol of shame (நான் ஒரு அவமானச் சின்னம்), as she was conceived, when her parents were not married then. In fact she was conceived, when her parents' love was at the greatest height and her birth was a symbol of love. Instead of calling her a symbol of love, she condemned herself by calling her a symbol of shame. When her attitude id such, how could she love her children who were born out of sex? Her attitude is permeated with poison; her love will remain poison. And so there is bound to be a basic and deep rift between woman and her husband. There will be a fence of thorns between her and her children, because the latter, to her are the fruits of sin. The relationship between her and her husband is sin-oriented; she is haunted by an unconscious guilt complex where sex is concerned. Can one live in harmony with sin?
The man who meets with an invisible barrier between himself and his wife can never feel content with her: he will look for other woman. All the woman in the world could have been like sisters to him had he received full gratification at home, because of its absence, he will now see all women as potential wives.
When Adam and Eve failed to acknowledge their likeness of God in them, theye, felt that there is something inside that needs to be hushed up. Once an individual will be guiltless of the so called ‘natural sin’, people will be able to discard his clothes. I have no bones about stating that the leaves Adam and Eve used out of sheer fear of nakedness, did not cover their nakedness (lack of awareness of their likeness of God); rather they uncover it.
The deterioration in man is only due to the crassness of our attitude to sex. Sex has lost its original sacredness. The original sense of reverence man had for sex has been tarnished. Sex has degenerated into a mechanical routine act of the day or week.
Sex has become more and more attractive because of its degradation by the scriptures and the religious leaders and in the process. Human beings have become more and more lustful because of the continuous slandering of sex by the priests. The more the priests strive to annihilate one’s thoughts about sex, the more mysterious it becomes, the curiosity it arouses.
No enmity, but friendship is to be made with sex. Sex has to be related to God’s plan of procreation. Lack of understanding about this procreation, has resulted in sex becoming a recreation.
Once we approach sex with divinity, the wife cease to be an object of passion; but another Immanuel.
Once, husband and wife make love to each other acknowledging the likeness of God in each other, the birth of the child become immaculate and one (King) David is born; one (Mother) Mary is born; one John the Baptist is born.
