Sacred Sexuality

Divine Sexuality

For a thousand years, our sexual expression has been informed by the
authoritarian male-dominant strategy to keep our emotions, bodies and
basic instincts under tight control. The implied concern is that if we surrender
to pleasure, and fully express ourselves sexually, that somehow the very fabric
of our families, culture, religion and government will unravel into chaos.

The truth is sex is good for your health and improves your mood. There is
nothing unspiritual about pleasure. In fact, there is no other human activity
where we can as effectively lose the ego, unite body and soul, escape duality
and time, and experience transcendental union with both another and God.

Divine sex is mystical and miraculous, a profoundly deep religious experience.
To surrender to the high art of lovemaking is to allow yourself to be consumed
by pleasure, to allow the sexual energy moving through you and your partner to
take on a life of its own. Personalities die as the passionate pulse of sexual fire
spontaneously expresses itself. Time disappears. You experience a spectacular breakthrough to the Infinite through total presence. The senses are magnified a
thousand times. You worship your lover in awe. Each touch seems like the first.
Giving and taking are the same. Boundaries between bodies blur and are replaced
with the blissful sensation of one. Heaven and earth merge as body and soul are
delivered to unimagined heights of ecstasy. You are lost in love and bliss as you
are consumed in ecstatic union with the beloved and the Universe.

If truth were told, we might all reveal our secret longing for an experience of
losing ourselves in sex to love and God. But so many of us carry guilt-ridden
negative messages about sex that we either give up sex altogether, or inadvertently
turn lovemaking into an ordinary, hurried, mechanical act of self-focused genital pleasure. We miss out on the opportunity to experience the thrill that comes from slowing down, being present, looking into each other’s eyes, giving ourselves fully
to our beloved, surrendering to our partner’s fulfillment and allowing ourselves to be consumed by transcendent love.

To discover this soul-merging connection with Eternity and God in divine sex, we
must develop new practices. First, we must embrace pleasure and sex as good, and
revere our self and our beloved as holy. We must shift our attention from our genitals
to our heart, focus not so much on getting pleasure as giving love and fulfillment, and replace reaching an end goal with attention to a moment’s pleasure. We must learn
to slow down and pay attention to our experience in the moment, to trust our body’s impulses, to give voice to our every arising desire and feeling, and surrender completely to the full spontaneous expression of our sexual passion.

To re-claim our bodies, our right to sexual pleasure and full self- expression may well
be a revolutionary act. To experience transcendental love in surrendered sex is the consummate religious experience. Divine sex connects us to God in ways churches
never will.
