Peaceful Pride - the asexual in a sexualised society
I’m certain that there are many spiritual people of many types of gender orientation – and that fact is not being disputed here in this article – but I would like to put forward the idea that the state of being asexual is caused by a human soul and spirit that is disengaging from this dimension of dualism, the world. I propose that the asexual is resonating with and drawing from other reasons for being in some other spiritual interdimensional reality other than the world and that the effect of that is celibacy and detachment from worldly issues.
We know that the human soul and its function can be beyond the realm of biology e.g. the Swedish maths graduate who because of hydroencephalitis (water on the brain) had a brain that was 90% water. There was no biological tissue to do the computations required for mathematics. As Dr Raymond Moody and Dr Helen Wambach note in their Near Death Experience research where the NDE’er is travelling very far from the body – collecting data and witness beyond the remit of the Hospital and their field of five normal senses – the Human Being is more than biology.
Beyond the biological impetus (often socially manufactured) to reproduce there is also another level of consciousness that is also a feature of the celibacy of the Raja Yoga discipline – that of asexuality, a state free of carnal appetites.
In Raja Yoga by strict abstinence governed by the disciplined mind making behavioural modifications a state of asexuality is reached.
Asexuality (sometimes referred to as nonsexuality), in its broadest sense, is the lack of sexual attraction and the lack of interest in and desire for sex. Sometimes, it is considered a lack of a sexual orientation. One commonly cited study placed the prevalence of asexuality at 1%.
Asexuality is distinct from abstention from sexual activity and from celibacy, which are behavioral; the latter is usually for a religious reason. A sexual orientation, unlike a behavior, is believed to be "enduring". Some asexuals do have sex, despite lacking a desire for it.
I note that the general thrust of the Wiki article itself and of the criticism of asexuality it contains in its discussion is that asexuality is some sort of sexual dysfunction in an otherwise sexually orientated mankind.
Further in this Wiki article that interpersonal relations have socio-biological psycho-science expressions. Ie. That an asexual person romanticises/fantasises a relationship because it can only ever be biologically driven material emotions that can drive a relationship.
The article in the vein of biochemical existentialism doesn’t enthuse about resonance and empathy with one soul to another, or of a spiritual reality in a state of grace – instead it takes the asexual being in relation to the biological imperative and existentialism of gender.
‘……Asexuals, while typically lacking in sexual desire for either sex, may engage in purely emotional romantic relationships. Terms concerning this:
· aromantic: lack of romantic attraction towards anyone
· biromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of either gender
· heteroromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of the opposite gender
· homoromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of the same gender
· panromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of any gender or lack of gender
· transromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of variant or ambiguous gender
· polyromantic: romantic attraction towards person(s) of more than one gender or sex but without implying, as biromantic does, that there are only two genders or sexes ……………………’
This sort of language however anchors relationships solely within the bounds of biology and excludes the spiritual reality.
What if though an asexual person tends to be more spiritually advanced and that a true spiritual relationship is more than a few fantasised constructs not just a malfunction of the gender-hormonally challenged ?
The system of Raja Yoga encourages the divorce of the human being from carnal practises so that states of great human spiritual advancement can be achieved. Perhaps therefore a naturally asexual person would be further up the ladder on the Raja Yoga system than a person that was more sexualised. http://www.lakungfu.com/yoga-meditation.html
What If human beings who are asexual are so spiritually evolved – so outwith the material cycle of duality, so apart from the material world that their souls and spirits have naturally turned away from the world and its endless cycle of carnality.
In the Christian New Testament the Sacrament of Marriage and of giving birth in a nurturing and stable family situation after entering into a contract that would enable the safe and stable upbringing/gestation of the child is a central reason for being on Earth, although there are other apostolic callings as taught by St Paul, but in Heaven, beyond the need for wombs and gestation periods of the young, beyond the need for biologically driven behaviour – other depths and realities to human relationships are hinted at beyond the sexual.
Matthew 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
In Raja Yoga, practitioners having controlled and eliminated their biological urges are able to enter in a state of peace a sort of super-consciousness called Samadhi.
Sure we get social engineering on Earth and mass programming to be sexual – our culture and media bombards us with it – undeniably so – and hormonal responses/storms beset the adolescent and perhaps many people who would otherwise be asexual feel obliged to go along with the mentality – fabricating reasons to participate in their minds rather than their bodies because they want to be like the majority.
The fallen angels and their technologies and their starships preach carnality to us and no doubt the rest of this plane/cosmos e.g.
What if though – the asexual person is not a sexual minority but a spiritual minority ?
This idea is contrary to the idea of the coming new evolutionary step hermaphroditic Aryan root race of Theosophy (Secret Doctrine by Blavatsky) and the Gnostic belief systems (Chemical Wedding, Rosenkrantz) as the next stage of evolution and takes the notion of fruitful spiritual relationships beyond the carnal biological model of love in terms of physical chemistry.
Can there next be a movement for asexual rights ? Peaceful Pride ? for those not engaged in the battle of the sexes and involved in territorial displays and nesting behaviour like those noted in primates by Robert Ardrey and his ‘Territorial Imperative’ ?
Science which ignores the soul and other dimensional issues, resonance and ascension as irrational aberrances may not be able to recognise Raja Yogis achieving Samadhi or Christians who practise celibacy to divorce themselves from the carnal path of the world to achieve spiritual peace beyond the worlds carnal mind control.
For the Christian, Christ broken by the world rose from the dead and became new.
Ephesians 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
Many are aware of the Merovingian/Nephilim/fallen conspiracy to secularise Christ to make of Him a sexual being of the world with a dynasty [e.g Dan Brown and the Da Vinci Code] – and most of us can recognise the blatant and deliberate sexualisation of the young – this from Dr L Dunegan on what he heard at a eugenics speech in 1969
‘Well, from population control, the natural next step then was sex. He said sex must be separated from reproduction. Sex is too pleasurable, and the urges are too strong, to expect people to give it up. Chemicals in food and in the water supply to reduce the sex drive is not practical. The strategy then would be not to diminish sex activity, but to increase sex activity, but in such a way that people won't be having babies.’ http://www.overlordsofchaos.com/html/new_order_of_barbarians.html
There is a growing movement to identify and give social affirmation to the homosexual population at an early age – but likewise what if there is actually a larger than 1% asexual component to humanity – and if asexuality helps in the acquisition of spiritual wisdom – what spiritual gifts are currently being drowned by a society deliberately and aggressively perpetuating and broadcasting in all and every media sexual clamour, stereotypes and contest ?
Asexuals need to know that its ok not to participate in this – that they can take pride in their own state of peace.
