Reclaim Sex As A Spiritual Act…

Reclaim Sex As A Spiritual Act – Artwork/Photo by Toni Roberts

 

“Goddess” knows I’ve had plenty of sex for sex-sake in the nearly 80 years of my life. And it might seem kind of hypocritical of me to now be preaching about sex and spirituality. But the fact is, it took me many years of oftentimes painful experiences; years of deep introspection; and ultimate unification with my own Sacred Self to realize the true significance and meaning of the sex act. Think about it. What is more intimate than allowing someone into your body? And what is more mind altering than orgasm? We are literally not ourselves as our beings are gripped with this most intense physiological and psychological experience. I have literally left my body while in the throes of orgasmic joy.

 

And this is exactly my point. During orgasm we are the most open, receptive and in the totality of our being than during any other experience. We can and do, literally, leave the moorings of physicality as the soul becomes one with the soul of our partner; providing he too is experiencing the impact of a full body-mind-spirit orgasm. What can be more intimate? And what other opportunities do we have to unite with another being on such a complete and profound level. The only experience that compares with the ecstasy of a mutual orgasm is that of religious ecstasy where one experiences the intensity of flying beyond one’s body into the freedom of the soul and connection with something greater than one’s physical being and consciousness.

 

I have put this to the test. And I reassure you—I do not tell lies—no need to at this stage of my life—that when you are with a partner with whom you are “soul-connected” and not just with some dude (is that even current?) who “turns you on,” the experience of mutual orgasm is beyond the mere pittance of words I can use to describe it. How about OBE? Or have you ever astrally projected…? left your body to explore universes beyond Time Itself? Need I say more?

 

Reclaim Sex as a Spiritual Act and come into the fullness of your Goddess-Hood.

Life Is A Process…And “God” Is Who I Am…

Healing Altar – Photo by Toni Roberts

Sitting at my Healing Altar in my Sacred Space is a daily ritual. Were it not for the time spent each day sitting in the Silence surrounded by my Companions-in-Spirit, I would surely be a mad woman. As it is, this daily ritual anchors me to the Divine within; and sets the Tone and Energy of my day. And each day, one step at a time, I move slowly towards total and complete At-One-Ment with That Which Causes All There Is Into Being. I am learning that life is a process and that “God” is who I am.

my son says

but ma…

you keeping on taking the same photo

over and over again…”

   he does not see the subtle changes from photo to photo

from day to day

season to season

the shifting shadows

the shimmering light

seasons marked

by the

absence or presence of sailboats on the sound

 

the stillness or gentle flow of the waters

the tugboat far off in the distance…

the mood of the sky

the shifting shapes of dancing clouds

no…

he does not see the subtle differences

from year to year

for he sees only with eyes

while I see with heart and soul

this river and sound that are kin to me…

this river that has held-rocked-soothed-nourished-and-healed-me

through twenty-four years of

pain

sorrow

loss

agony

and the

deepest-of-soul-stirring

joy...
