The Binding Nature of Illusory Love and Sex
The love that’s felt in man/woman sexual encounters, while you are bound by the illusion, pulls you to turn a part of your heart and Being to another person for fulfillment. This is the insidious nature of the illusory love. . . There’s nothing wrong with the pleasure felt with each other or the love felt with each other. In fact, you’ll feel more as you open up more. You must, however, begin to see the attachment of it all and begin to let go, or these pleasures in the material world that you encounter will bind you to illusory love, and you won’t find the endless love of God that you truly desire.
Kalindi La Gourasana, “Be-Aware and Become Aware,” The Bottom Line Tape Series, April 21, 1997.
In my life, I have fallen in love several times. I have come to understand that my love relationships have all been binding in some way. It took me practically fifteen years on my spiritual path to completely let go of illusory love. As a result, I am able to feel much more love with everyone, not just my partner, and my desire to know God’s Love fully has awakened and blossomed inside of me.
There is nothing to compare to God’s Love. It contains all love and sexual desire that come from within in my connection. Now, I can freely share that love and have sex free from any guilt or shame. I have come to understand that sexual desire is not derived from another person; it only exists within my connection to God.
