This is a re-post of a post by Seth Duncan and my reply from a snippet of the conversation on “True Love and Forgiveness” on FaceBook from today.
The topic of sex is extremely taboo in the world and even with a course in miracles students… At course groups topics like guilt and fear, peace and love and miracles are discussed but not very often is sex brought up. There’s so much shame and guilt covering sex that people don’t want to look at it. I’ve been uncovering this sex-drive for a while now and it’s been quite liberating to get to core of it… If anyone would like to comment or ask questions about it I would be happy to respond. 🙂
Thanks, Seth, this post is perfectly juxtaposed with the wonderful YouTube interview with Kenneth Bok and Nouk Sanchez where more ‘sacred-to-the-ego cows’ are revealed. How appropriate in this dream season of death, taxes and rebirth-into-form that we examine what the fragmented self hates to look at… I’m reminded of Ken Wapnick’s superb audio, “Form vs. Content: Sex and Money” where he points out that these taboo subjects are just poster children of the tantrum yoga that the teacher of fear promotes and glamorizes, wanting to make some subjects special and particularly off-limits to pulling back Oz’s curtain. And Gary Renard’s teachers are equally non-word-mincing on the subject, reminding us that sex, in particular, has just enough ‘payoff’ to maintain the mindless addiction to avoiding looking at the underlying authority problem where we seem to be able – for a few moments – find a substitute for an all-encompassing love that we know would bring us home in a nanosecond if we really looked at it wholly with the Spirit we all are. These ‘special’ topics where the world seems ‘more equal than others’ as Orwell might say, often can be particularly helpful when given to the Teacher of Kindness for reinterpretation so that we don’t make ‘big deals’ out of any particulars. 🙂
Oh yeah, and just looking (with Holy Spirit) does not necessarily imply that we change anything on the level of form, which is so often the knee (or other anatomical region) jerk reaction to being upset with our own projections that just need our forgiveness; and seeing the humor in our own folly around these sacred herds can be so entertaining! 🙂
