My experience has been that Kundalini is actually wholly natural and familiar: nothing other than our sexual drive and its exquisitely ecstatic sensations. And yet... there is something amazingly different that is possible and associated with this word. There is "sex as we think about it in our familiar, social conditioning" and then there a higher potential of sexual energies to refine and purify our entire nervous and glandular systems into a different way of functioning. When sexual sensation becomes something that purifies our minds and blossoms our biology into an Oxytocin based sense of connection and deep Love, I would agree with calling it something other than "sex": perhaps "Higher Sex," or, Divine actualization, or… Kundalini — even though Kundalini is a word that often causes more miscommunication than clear understanding, being linked to pre-scientific, more poetical, and symbol making ages. And then there is this lightness... and Light. / Blake
There has just been a Sexibility Festival at Angsbacka. I have some strong impressions after it. One is that I feel a healthy union of all energies into a respectful, playful, and free flowing Love is on the cutting edge of human development. There must be a large scale movement from fear to wholeness, from projections of unconsciously repressed things to openness, honesty, and eventually, to real, all embracing Love.
In the past all major spiritualities have repressed our sexuality, and thus our humanness, in the name of becoming more divine — but it hasn't worked. There is always just a small minority of people who are able to lift their inbuilt, divinely designed love of ecstasy and intimacy to a level of divine love-making. For every radiant saint there have been thousands of repressed and tormented souls trying to be good and filled with all manner of guilt and shame.
My heart cries out, no more of this! We need a spiritual wholeness that makes all our God-given capacities beautiful, that affirms that sex is pure and beautiful because it is a gift of the Creator, that it is good to feel very good, healthy, and life-affirming.
That said, another very strong impression is that it takes a great maturity to help people open up and heal in this area... There must be a depth of understanding of the human psyche, and passionate sense of responsibility for the on-going good of another; and that when dealing with the area of our greatest sensitivities, tenderness, and vulnerability and its relationship to our animal hungers and divine capacities for real Love and beauty, there needs to be wisdom... truck loads of wisdom, and rivers of intelligent, illuminated Love. I call for people who are concerned about the health of humanity not criticize those who are trying to create new patterns, or repress their own feelings that arise, but to be open in humility and compassionate Love so that energy will move, awareness will grow through communication with others, ways will be found, and more health will come. I hope to write more about this important subject soon./Blake
I have found that truly healthy sex is about discovering the inherent instincts of sex to play, birth new life, unite us with each other and heal. It is about innocent ecstatic energy flowing through our innocent bodies, and integrated in a way that enriches every aspect of our lives. To discover the spiritual essence of sex is nothing short of a journey into the true nature of our selves.
If we embrace it as a spiritual way it can purify negative shadows of fear, shame, selfish lust, and guilt, out of our minds until our whole being shines with the Light of Life that is our actual essence and happy home.
