SACRED EROTIC LOVE (3)

Imagery of transcendental pleasure potency


Male orgasm is merely an acceleration of the female orgasm, slow down the male orgasm and it is then able to break into the inner chambers of the body.  

"If there is leakage of sexual energy, the Buddha Unchanging Light is slain. Therefore, with the power of retraction, drawing up 'love' with the base energy of life-force, I held it in the pot of my belly, and maintaining the recollection of pleasure uncontaminated by lust, divesting myself of mind-created Samadhi, yet not slipping into an instant of torpor, I experienced the ascent of Awareness." Lady Yeshe Tsogyel 

Process of Taoist internal alchemy: produce a feeling of sexual pleasure, draw this feeling from the sexual organs into the abdomen, continue to increase it with mindfulness, and at the same time lead the feeling of meditative bliss from the head into the abdomen. Energy flow then follows the feelings. In the abdomen, the heavenly or male energy from the head centres interacts or copulates with the female earth energy of the sexual and base centres. The ultimate goal of Taoist energy cultivation is the formation of an immortal body. This is not a physical body but a higher energy body, a light body. In the same way as in esoteric Buddhist practice, this is achieved by combining male and female sexual energies so that the practitioner becomes androgynic.

"When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female. Then you will enter (the kingdom)." The Gospel of Thomas  

"The Lord is so merciful that He Himself descends to take the fallen souls back home to the
Kingdom of Godhead, where the erotic principles of Godhead are eternally relished in their real form, distinct from sexual love so much adored and indulged in by the fallen souls. The reason the Lord displays the Rasa-lila (pleasure potency) is essentially to induce all souls to give up their diseased morality and religiosity, and to attract them to the kingdom of God to enjoy the reality. A person who actually understands what is Rasa-lila will certainly hate to indulge in mundane sex life." Caitanya-caritamrta 

The manipulation of sexual energy is control over life and death. When life is He and death is she, then death is never more becoming. Vampiric death in body beautiful is euphoria, an indescribable joy at coming death. One dies of a love attack, "I am dying of Love" is carved in flesh. This exercise in dying is not to be confused with sexual flirtations with death, the creation of the libidinous energy body is concerned with ecstatic knowledge at the time of many mystical 'deaths' and not sexual excitement at a moment of intense life.

"The men will keep (their minds fixed on) their loins, firmly preserving the Essence and distilling the Breath, which follows the spinal column and rises to the brain; this is what is called 'causing to return to the Origin' huan-yuan; the women will keep (their mind fixed on) their hearts, nourishing the spirits, distilling an unchanging fire, making the Breath descend from the two breasts to the loins, whence it again mounts through the spinal column and also goes to the brain: this is what is called 'transforming the real,' hua-chen.  After a period, one reaches Transcendence.  If one practices this procedure for a very long time, one spontaneously becomes a Real Man, and, living eternally, one traverses the centuries - this is the method of not dying." The Secret of the Golden Flower

"Among the basic joys of human existence is the division into sexes, the difference between male and female, between penis and vagina, between you and me, even between mine and yours, and these are extremely pleasant and satisfying divisions, or could be; their elimination would not just be insane, but also a nightmare - the peak of repression."  Herbert Marcuse 

"Woman's emptiness and frailty are inseparable from her fertility and depth: Although man has greater strength than woman, yet woman is a fountain of wisdom and a wellspring of deep joy, which man draws out to perfection. When Eve was created, she gazed at Adam as a soul, which longing for heavenly things stretches upward, for she set her hope in the man. Erotic love in women is by nature aspiring and even adoring." Hildegard of Bingen 1098

"Love itself is union, it admits no distant extremes." Sor Juana 1691

"Then you began to deal with me in a marvellous and secret way. Like spouse with his bride, you would always take pleasure with my soul... I felt as though an ineffable light from your divine eyes were entering through my eyes, softly penetrating, passing through all my interior being, in a way beyond measure wonderful, working marvellous power in every limb. At first it was if my bones were being emptied of all the marrow, then even the bones with the flesh were dissolved so that nothing was felt to exist in all my substance save that divine splendour which, in a manner more delectable than I am able to say, playing within itself, showed my soul the inestimable bliss of utter serenity. Seated in profound meditation, lost in contemplation of yourself, you have placed the sweetest kiss upon my lips, a kiss far surpassing every fragrance or honeyed drink... I was introduced to you - rapt, rather - into a close union with you that it seems more than miraculous that, after such hours of ecstasy I could still live as a mortal among mortals. On many occasions, I have felt in my soul your close embrace. For this and all the other embraces known to you alone, may you be offered that dew of sweetness, a sweetness transcending every sense, which is most joyously distilled from Person to Person in the heavenly storeroom of the divinity." Gertrude of Helfta 1256 

"Ah, Lord, love me passionately, love me often, and love me long. For the more passionately you love me, the purer I shall become. The more often you love me, the more beautiful I shall become. The longer you love me, the holier I shall become. I would willingly die of love, if it could happen to me." Mechthild of
Magdeburg 1208
