I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again:
Sex is purely biology, just like eating, sleeping, and the evacuation of waste. And like many other animal species, we have sex not only for procreation but for pleasure (and not necessarily with our mates).
This nonsense about the morality of sex came from the writings of a few ancient prophets who claimed that God spoke to them and told them sex was sacred. And the rest of the world, in their colossal ignorance, bought into it!
Organized religion is the greatest scam ever perpetrated on humankind. Look, I understand that man is fundamentally a spiritual creature. I get it. But spirituality is not to be found by taking the word of other men. They cannot be trusted. Men lie. Men have hidden agendas. Men have unreasoning fears. Men are easily capable of self-delusion. Even men with names like Peter and Paul.
How, then, is spirituality to be found? By looking into your heart, when you are at peace with yourself, when you are in touch with your quiet centre. When you are totally relaxed and free from the stresses of life. When you are capable of total concentration and focus without any distraction.
God is within each and every one of us. Each and every one of us has that quiet centre, if only you can find it, if only you can reach it. And once you do, you will find that goodness naturally falls out of it. Therein lie your good and moral behaviours.
Forget the Bible. Forget the Qur’an. These are toxic documents that embody the fears of ancient man.
Jesus won’t save you. You have to save yourself…by embarking on the journey of self-discovery. Find God within yourself.
Religion is an instrument of social engineering. True spirituality is not. Understand the difference.
Reality and spirituality are not fundamentally at odds with one another. They coexist in harmony. Reality is informed by your physical senses; it is supported by logical principles. Spirituality is based on your feelings; it comes from the core of your being (logic has nothing to do with it).
So let go of your sexual restraints. They exist on the basis of fear…yours and your “prophets’.” People feel inadequate because they feel they should be able to control their carnal desires. It is the fear of letting loose, of being out of control.
It’s a terrible shame to allow fear to limit your enjoyment of the greatest earthly gift God has to offer.
