Sex is what brought us here. Without sex, you and I won't be here.
There is nothing cheap or dirty about sex. It is the attitude towards sex that makes it degrading, sinful ,and dirty .Sex can be beautiful and precious. It fulfills the function of procreation, it could also be a means to commit the most heinous crime.
It is important not only to be aware of our sexuality.We need to acknowledge its importance as a factor for a balanced life. It is the fire that keeps the flames of romance aglow, the strong fiber that knits a relationship together against all odds. It is refreshing, it is healing. Respect for sex add meaning to our human existence and relationships.
We treat with reverence those things we hold dear to our hearts. Activities that we enjoy leave us with that sense of accomplishment, of satisfaction, and make us feel good.
Music is considered the language of the soul. Who does not enjoy music? It is one of the great pleasures mankind has discovered. There are as many tunes,songs and music as there are performers ,composers and song writers.
Sex is an integral part of human existence.The expression of sex has many faces, strikes many chords, creates a variety of tempo, of harmony or dis-harmony.
Who does not admire beautiful and awesome surroundings; seek and welcome serenity and tranquility, away from the frenzy of the world. Expression and wholesome atmosphere create and inspire the moment for the ultimate experience of Sacred Sex.
We do not subscribe to the same type of music, but generally, there must be something in the music that stirs the soul; a melody that promotes a certain mood, a tune that softens or excites the psyche. Listening to music is soothing, it is inspiring, it quietens a cluttered mind.
No human activity but sex can elevate the soul, the human spirit to ecstasy, out of the physical realm into a world only the two physical bodies can experience.It is not the "quickie", not the one in the backseat, or any isolated dim spot that is available at the moment.
Anyone who has been to a concert, a recital, or attended a symphony, knows these events need planning. Sex is like attending one of these events. To fully enjoy it, set aside the time , the resources needed , plan the when and the how will naturally follow. It is not an event we attend to everyday. It is a special occasion we look forward to with anticipation. Of course,spontaneity adds pizzazz.
Why not a sacred time for sacred sex? For anyone who is interested to learn more about the "How to", the resources are limitless- read up on Tantric Sex or get a copy of the Kama Sutra.
But, no matter how much information you read on sex, if the attitude to elevate it to something sacred is not there, it would be difficult to experience the bliss, the ecstasy and the sense of fulfillment only sacred sex can offer.
Expression is a very personal matter, so is the experience.
There is music, and there is music. Some people enjoy the singer who belts out the words, in constant gyration or movement. They see the singer, do they hear the song? There are others who are quite content with the blues, or country tempo, some go for ballads, but, there is always room for the appreciation of the music of the great masters.Do not mistake it for the elevator music.Many great music have "popular hits" versions that appeal to most. Take Beethoven's Fifth, Chopin's Nocturne in B Flat ( To Love Again), Mozart's Eich Nacht Music ( Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star).
Sacred sex is like attending a symphony- the orchestra and all its sections play their part, the percussion, the wind instruments, the strings.
What does these have to do with sex? When elevated to the highest form that it can be, every single part of the human body can be tuned up like the sections of the orchestra, to produce that haunting, enjoyable , uplifting and satisfying music.
Listen to some good music, it's not all one beat, one, chord, one tone. Observe the adagio, enjoy the cantabile, the sweetness of the dolce, then get exhilarated as the orchestra progresses to forte, fortissimo, con anima, then…it starts to slow down, go into ritardando, some endings maybe soft or bombastic, but always passionate. Notice that after each performance of the symphony,there are seconds of quiet, when you hear not a sound, until the maestro takes his bow.
Lovers need time together , without interruptions to get to know each other.It's a special night, without the children, and no telephone. It is time together,to immerse in each other's love, where they experience the ecstasy of being ONE.
Two souls are able to reach out into the depths of each other's being during moments of intimacy. It is difficult to interpret most work of art, and feel the passion of the artist, understand what was on his mind while creating his work.
Music is different. The performer has the freedom to express the inner stirrings within the soul, with passion that radiates through the performance, filters to the spectators, and enjoy the transformation to a different world and savor the peace within the soul .
In sacred sex, it helps to understand the human anatomy, to fine tune all these parts, yes, from head to toe, to stir the most passionate, ecstatic and blissful act.
When two souls are able to reach this state of oneness, savor it, and respect it.
That is sacred sex.
