Recently one of our visitors wrote in asking for advice on Samael Aun Weor’s sexual transmutation; and how to successfully achieve it. Samael detailed tantric sex and sexual transmutation in his book The Mystery of the Golden Blossom . The book details the words to meditate upon during intercourse. It also speaks of not spilling ones seed during sex. The book is a very intriguing read but I have to say after following its instruction for over three years I can safely say it didn’t deliver as promised.
Before I delve further into the spiritual studies I will answer the rest of our reader’s questions.
“Is sexual intercourse as performed by most people to be defined as something “bad” or “evil”?”
Well, the answer all depends upon the circumstances. The act of sex is neither good nor evil. Sexual intercourse can only be determined evil when we assign our own social stigmas to it. The exception would be the intent of act though. If an individual pursues their sexual desires in a malicious manner then yes it is evil. However if the two individuals are happily in love with each other then the act of copulation becomes a positive thing.
“If sexual magic is “truly” the only way to open the gates of heaven as Samael alludes to, then what would the bachelor man/woman do? What about the mystics, monks, saints and hermits? Why do they take celibacy vows?”
There are many different roads to achieve spiritual enlightenment and which path is right, no one can say. To make such an audatious assumption as Weor did and say that the only way to achieve spiritual enlightenment, was with non-ejaculatory sex is absurd. In this one thought the teachings of all Buddhists are dismissed, as well as many other world religions. Sex is perhaps one of the most mystifying and pleasurable experiences we as a species have. Why then would we be so willing to throw that out; based upon the hope and teachings of a man.
My thoughts on the matter lead me to much the same conclusion as our reader. It’s like the old bible question “What about the dinosaurs?”; everyone has an idea or belief of how things should be it is up to us to discern and see for ourselves the lies from truths. If we believe something strongly enough it becomes a reality. When you are young and you are told to hold back those sexual desires and urges, it only builds up pent up frustration. We are after all still animals; a fact many seem to forget. Why waste your life not enjoying one of the greatest things nature has to offer us?
