Wow. The "special relationship" as a haven from the storm of guilt. That blows the old taboos out of the water, at least to anyone that is willing to hear it. Powerful.

I've heard some people say that while they have finally found "their true love", they feel hurt that they both had lovers before. A religious guilt happens to so many around divorce, dating. So little conversation around what sex and desire really means and so much suppression around the feelings that drive our curiosity around sex. Not much conversation around love beyond sex roles in monogamous bonds.

Even people that talk about Chakras often ignore, or are embarrassed to talk about the fact that the second Chakra is the energy of both creativity and sex. It's really so much the same thing, same energy. And why would you paint pictures and only share them with your "spouse"?

Life and love can be so expansive when the veils of guilt are lifted. Not easy to get there, I admit. But conversations like this are a huge step to healing us all.

Eric, I also agree with you that an understanding and acceptance of sex is definitely a big and necessary step in spiritual growth. For our spirits to expand we have to be aware and accepting of our instincts.

Sex is an instinctual urge closely connected to the survival instincts and chemistry of our bodies. To ignore it, is clearly to not really know oneself.

Happy to hear you addressing sex, Eric. "The body is for communication." Can't be said better! Sex is an intense form of communication.

Why we think of it as being anything else, anything that's 'sinful', or immoral, or guilt producing is one of humanity's great mistakes. Being comfortable with and open to sex in the distorted societies we live in is quite an accomplishment. I look forward to reading your words and observations.

I am totally lost as far as the meaning of what's being said, but I know I'm listening to one of the greatest FM radio voices ever to travel the airwaves, and I enjoy that!

Eric, are you aware of the material on sex in the Urtext manuscripts? It was edited out of the final published volume, but there is some in there. I can't remember which chapter of the Urtext it's in. I know it's more at the beginning of the book. I'd say the main thing that's stated is that the only valid use for sex is procreation. That's probably why it was cut out!

There's also this to check out: https://www.miraculousliving.com/search?form_type=search&utf8=✓&type=page&view=compact&q=%22sex%22

I enjoy listening to your Journey Without Distance.

Thanks,
