With divorce rates at an all time high and people quickly turning to the little blue pill, we’re often left wondering what happened to the passion and intensity of sex.
I’m not talking about a one night stand. No, far from it. I’m talking about a long, sustainable, passion filled relationship. People who divorce just because their “relationship had gone cold” fail to account for the spiritual side of their relationsip.
Sex can be a very spiritual experience. Here is a great reminder of how spiritually powerful a sexual experience can be.
Sex And Spirituality
Sex is about sharing and exchanging energies that originate more from our souls than just our heads or our genitals. It is about uniting our longing for wholeness and connection, yearnings that are naturally sacred and spiritual.” (Spirituality World)
Sex and spirituality. An odd combination.
Originally when I would think about sex I would think of raw passion or slow lovemaking. I’d never considered that it could be spiritual as well. Not when I was young.
But the greatest answer to passion I’ve learned is to include your spirituality. This is the true meaning of intimacy.
It’s flesh and flesh and soul and soul. It’s a deep union that cannot be mimicked. It’s a union of flesh and spirit.
In this case your sexual desire is sacred.
Sex is filled with energy. Not your typical energy but energy that comes from within. It’s life’s breath inside your body.
