vs Conscious Sexuality
sexuality is only a very small part of the total path
of Tantra and Tantra can be (and is often more powerful
in it's practice) if it is practiced as a inner path.
The whole western way of selling tantra as a sexual
practice has warped the view of the beautiful
and complete life
changing path of Tantra.
you are following the tantric path and getting stuck
at conscious sexuality
is like going on the most amazing, vast, adventurous
journey of your life, stopping at the first motel
and thinking you have arrived.
tantra has been adopted in the West a ‘sex
sells’ warped view of what tantra
is seems to have developed.
The western model has been to suppress sex and
then use sex to sell everything to us. Neo-tantra
and then used this to sell everything. Neither
model works, both cause distortion.
energy is the most potent form of the life force, yes,
but physical sex is just a part of life, a part
of this life
is about coming fully alive, opening and
in its totality.
To practice tantra requires even
greater compassion and greater intelligence than are
required on the sutra path; thus, though many persons
in the degenerate era are interested in tantra, tantra
is not for degenerate persons. Tantra is limited to persons
whose compassion is so great that they cannot bear to
spend unnecessary time in attaining Buddhahood, as they
want to be a supreme source of help and happiness for
