Scared of the Sacred? Male Confusion over Sexual Intercourse

Sacred Union

It is the most difficult part of the spiritual path. Because of religious teaching in the West, we are told that sex is a bad thing, unless it exists in a marriage sanctified by the church. And even then, it is only meant to propagate the species. But the sexual urge to unite with another is much too strong to be reined in by a few ‘commandments’.

For centuries, if not millennia, men have tried to control this impulse, to lessen its effect on them: enacting prostitution laws; forbidding women from associating until the light of the full Moon; making women be obedient to their husbands. You name it and the reason is always fear: fear of the power that women have to bring life into this world.

Roma or Amor?

Reading through the Grail portion of The O Manuscript, I have come to the conclusion that the ONLY way to find the Grail (and absorb its meaning into our being) is through sex. In today’s world that seems more than a little shocking.

Temple prostitutes were encouraged by the legal authorities in Rome. Why? Because it stopped men from wandering too far from their emotional and legal obligations.

But, on an esoteric level, this ‘temple worship’ had a beneficial effect on society, And, for those who were on a spiritual path, this was a ‘special’ way to open yourself up to spiritual energy. (I’ve written about this before.) Orgasm is called ‘la petite mort’.

Who perverted this sacred rite?
