Last post I said that repressing sexual thoughts leads to them manifesting as other addictions or unhealthy behavior. Yet you can’t let them control your behavior. Because this is where your rational and conscious mind comes in.
Sex is amazing. And spiritual. And energizing. But so is ice cream. And if you eat nothing but ice cream for three meals every day, you’ll eventually get sick and die.
There is something to be said for moderation in almost everything. (Which is the lesson I’m still working on!) But sex has another variable, because of the energy it produces...
Sexual energy can be one of the most powerful drivers of physical force, creative application, and mental breakthroughs. Sexual energy cannot be denied, but it can be channeled. But to do this, you must nurture the energy and prevent it from becoming depleted.
Sexual energy or “chi,” the term Asians use for life force, are closely unified. In fact, when you have an orgasm, it is an explosion of sexual energy that you are releasing. That is why tantric sex practitioners learn how to delay orgasms and experience them without ejaculation. Note this is not about repression, but channeling this energy. Which is where we’ll pick up next post. Until then, please check in with your thoughts on all this.
