Sex has got nothing to do with spirituality – This is the bare minimum basic knowledge!
Sometimes I get really appalled when I read about best sellers that state such things like ‘How Nirvana is reached through sex’ or ‘How to achieve Moksha (final liberation) through Sex’! And guess what? … more appalling is the fact that behind such so called best sellers are ace authors and orators who conduct management training, corporate training etc. at a huge price!
How can a body system that is physical and gross be compared to something so subtle, sublime and ethereal as spirituality!? Let us look into this mostly discussed topic – Sex & spirituality.
Let us begin from the beginning – Our Body Systems
During school education we all learnt about the different types systems that are present in our bodies performing various functions. Although all the systems are jam packed in the same body, but all are allotted different functions and work in perfect sync with each other. Whereas the respiratory system deals with air and oxygen, the digestive system deals with breaking down food and liquids so that it (nutrients) is later be circulated in the blood stream via circulatory system! None of the organs fight with each other and each lets the other work without any interference whatsoever. I don’t think anyone on earth has ever heard of things like the Liver cells (Hepatocytes) went on an indefinite strike because it thought that the lung cells (alveoli ) are given an easier job to do!
The reproductive system –
So with different body systems functioning in perfect sync with each other, how can the reproductive system suddenly get so highly promoted that it became the path to attaining Moksha (self realization)? It is there to maintain the progeny. Period. It may be giving some temporary sensual pleasures with different systems involved too – like the endocrine system is deeply involved in the process of reproduction – but hardly anyone mentions about it!? The gametes or reproductive cells – which are sperms and ova – either get fertilized or get eliminated from the body…just like after digestion in the alimentary canal, the rest of the waste gets eliminated through the Excretory system.
All the above is covered in most of the school syllabi ie. by the time we are in the 8th standard (around 13 years old), we more or less know all about its functioning. If the reproductive system was really the path to spiritual life – then it should have been taught to us right in school – why are people made to suffer endlessly seeking the divine if the great International Spiritual Masters are so damn sure about the path to ‘eternal bliss’ or ‘self realization’? The answer is but of course ‘NO’. The Reproductive System has simply got absolutely nothing to do with ‘Self Realization’. This is the whole truth however surprising it might be sounding to many!
Conclusion – Sex & Spirituality?!- Sorry No Connection!
Is there then any system that takes us to spirituality or self realization?
The good news is – yes, there is. We do have a subtle system in our bodies that can take us to the next level of evolution – our spiritual evolution. I have written about it elaborately in one of my articles here –
– It worked for me and I sincerely hope and pray that the true seekers of the divine should definitely get to know more about it, try practicing it and find out themselves how authentic it is.
All the best to the true seekers of divine bliss and self realization.
