‘Sexual energy is a great gift, the source of our life force and supports the continuation of humanity. It can be likened to combustible fuel which if used wisely and directed towards a spiritual ideal propels us to a higher form of love which brings lasting joy, inspiration and fulfilling relationships.
“The sexual force is a gift from God, it is we who must learn how to use it. Countries which have great deposits of coal or oil under their soil have become immensely rich because they make use of their resources.
Those who do not know how to use them, burn them. In the same way, the sexual force is an energy which we must learn to use so that we can turn on the lights, light the fires and set all the engines within us in motion.”
Whether one chooses to be single or in a relationship, sublimation of the sexual force is a work which reaps immeasurable rewards. Repression or promiscuity both have undesirable consequences but there is a third solution. With a commitment to a high spiritual ideal and by linking ourselves to our soul and spirit we can transform our sexual energy to develop our fullest potential as human beings and to bring heaven down to earth.
“To master the sexual force you must have a high ideal, a tremendous love for perfection, purity and beauty. This is not easy and needs an entire science if you are to succeed. Without a high ideal, without an aspiration to live the divine life, it is not worth struggling against the sexual force because you will not succeed in sublimating it. You will only repress and this is not a solution to the problem of sexuality. Only a tremendous love for a high ideal will allow you to sublimate your energies.”
