The difference between lust and sacred sex is quite simple. Lust is an animal desire that says “I want it.” Sacred sex is a conscious love that says “I love you.” Do you see the difference? One is an expression of pure emotion, the other is desire that seeks to acquire. One gives, the other takes. Sacred sex, true divine sexuality, is an expression of the divine. It is pure love, it is Christic. Lust is animal, it wants desire, it wants sensation, and when it’s satisfied, it walks away.
“The intellectual animal still does not have a Soul. Whosoever wishes to incarnate his Soul, whosoever yearns to be a human with Soul, must have the Astral, Mental, and Causal Bodies. The human being of this day and age still does not have these internal vehicles. The Astral specter, the Mental specter, and the Causal specter are only specters. The majority of occultists believe that these inner specters are the true vehicles; nonetheless, they are very mistaken. We need to be born in the Superior Worlds. This subject matter about being born is a sexual problem. No human being is born of theory. Not even a simple microbe can be born of theories. No one is born through the nostrils nor through the mouth. Every living being is born of sex. “As above, so below.”
