Importance of Sex

Sexual intercourse can be a very creative act. It is capable of stimulating energies of a very high positive and fulfilling nature.

On having entered the physical realms through incarnation on Earth, each human spirit becomes a personality to gain certain understandings, to accomplish certain deeds, to develop certain thought patterns, and to react and to participate in the three-dimensional physical world. While each such soul comes here to the planet Earth for different reasons, yet each ultimately seeks fulfillment via self-mastery in many different ways.

Spiritual energy . . . Life Energy . . . has as yet to be defined and understood. When used only on its lower-scale dimension, as Sensuality, it becomes the feeble act of a Creative Being trying to find its ultimate Sense of Self by reproducing itself. In that way, human beings constantly thrust outward trying to find that perfect companion, to experience that perfect sense of fulfillment that which would gratify the inner higher desire and the urges of the body.

On a temporary basis, some satisfaction can be had with almost any other human sexual partner, but only temporarily. For you see, it is a grounding and a fusion that happens when said union involves only the lowest of the spiritual centers (the root chakra). There is always that constant urge and desire to seek that greater fulfillment . . . the ultimate. As yet, very few souls have moved off the lower levels.

The polarity of Sex is vitally important to you human beings for procreating and continuing your race. There is a whole realm of energy ever available to you. And as a being develops and evolves toward a greater sense of fulfillment, gaining a greater sense of unity and oneness with the universe itself, it will normally consciously choose to use that constant influx of energy for fulfillment on more exalted levels. Such a human being will choose to deal with it from the higher centers, to plunge itself inward into greater depths of perception and response and participation with life. And so, that being will not limit the vital life force from flowing through a sex chakra, but will ultimately reroute that energy and allow it to develop and work through the higher levels of Mind.

So then, is sexual intercourse a positive experience for the wholeness of the body, or is it a negative experience? It is both. It fulfills those souls (who are) here to become bonded with mates, to generate families, to learn of their own curious desires, urges, and passions. Ultimately, as a soul evolves by frequent return to the Earthplane, it will become more consciously aware of that vital life force. It will be more selective in how it uses that +lan. Proper use of the Life Force will move an individual beyond a limited Earth-bound sense of identity and fulfillment, transcending a selfish perspective, to using that life force for the well-being and the welfare of a good many more people. It will consciously choose to activate those energies and to workout of the higher chakras. [This is the direct objective of some Mystery Schools.]

Ultimately, everything becomes fulfilled, and everyone finds his place upon the Wheel of Life. In the Earth life-system, you must move through a series of progressive life experiences. In other words, the young soul will rarely come into the earth realm and immediately successfully open the inner mind. It will come here to seek the basic desires of a physical mechanism, and will seek companionship and understanding on that level. Fulfillment is found in how well the opportunities and resources are used.

The Sex function is vitally important to you peoples in that it is a natural part of the body, but it also is important to remember that you are here to learn to master its energy, and to master your own resources and use of Life Energy.

And so, thus, as you become more 'involved and evolved' you will become more selective, using your life force when it supports and perpetuates your spiritual ideas, as opposed to using it at random or with carelessness through pleasure-seeking only. It can be used more properly as an expression of love, and of course it can be used for its designed function in reproduction of the human species. It is all in how you use it, how you nourish it.

Ultimately the expression of Love becomes our finest expression. So it is both positive and negative, according to each individual entity in fulfilling his destiny, and why he came to Earth.
