I've had a busy weekend and it's only going to get busier, so this might not be the world's longest post. It won't really take a long post to discuss sexuality and negative plane energy. It only takes books and books and reams and reams of words to justify historical Christianity's take on sexuality.
First off readers need to understand that I don't sexuality as divorced from the totality of a person. Secondly, readers need to understand that I see sexuality as the epitome of the gift of material reality which is touch. Touch is God's way of exploring this reality. He does this through our hands, our hearts, our bodies, our sexuality. In this sense I see sexuality as a spiritual endeavor, not strictly a procreative endeavor.
When sexual morality is divorced from heart and spirit, relegated to a series of do's and dont's based in procreation, the door is wide open for negative plane energy to exploit our sexuality. Negative plane energy is not embodied. Therefor, they, like God use our ability to touch to explore the material plane along side of us. They are not interested in exploring sexuality as a function of love, joy, peace, sharing. They are interested in exploring it through exploitation, dominance, pain, violence, guilt, shame, fear, power. Historical Christianity has made this effort much easier by making sexuality a guilt driven enterprise reducing women's role in sexuality to passive receptors of male seed and birthing of children. Historical Christianity has taken male seed and made it an idol around whose proper planting all sexuality must conform. Essentially historical Christianity has taken the multi faceted world of sexuality and reduced it to a form of farming. Unfortunately the farm feeds a whole host of negative plane energies, through a whole host of exploitative sexual behaviors.
Sarah Palin's shot gun wedding for her daughter amply illustrates how this dynamic works. She has a pregnant seventeen year old daughter who will dutifully marry the father of her child. This is the same 'father' whose face book biography specifically stated he didn't want any f***ing children, amongst a whole host of other redneck self descriptors all most all of them beginning with f***in'. In spite of ample evidence that he demonstrates a stunning lack of parental and husbandly maturity, he will marry and become a father in direct contradiction to his own self understanding. Apparently this is what Jesus would do.
Who benefits from this shotgun wedding other than Sara Palin and John McCain. Undoubtedly a whole host of negative plane energy will, that's for sure. I'm not talking about demonic possession here. I'm talking about energies that just hang around to bathe in the kinds of emotional energy which is generated when immature morally undeveloped youth engage in sexuality and then are forced to into marriage. I've seen how difficult and emotionally charged these young marriages can be, and I can't begin to imagine what it's going to be like for these two teenagers in the face of all the media exposure their relationship will endure. They may have proven they were biologically ready for procreative sex, but that doesn't mean they are spiritually and emotionally ready to become parents.
There is a huge difference between making babies and raising children. This difference is not acknowledged by historical Christianity in it's sexual morality. It leads to really interesting thinking which morally charges women to have the babies of their rapists, and makes sexual rape more moral than masturbation. Makes no sense at all in a spiritual definition of sexuality but absolute sense in a morality which is based strictly in biological procreation. This thinking is what we are being asked to vote for. I'm sure some of Palin's biggest supporters are not of this world, and not of the Angelic world.
The negative energy swirling around human sexuality will not leave until humanity takes the high road with regards to sexuality and understands that it is indeed one of our highest Divine expressions. If it's true humanity is God's way of understanding Himself through touch, than we need to rethink our traditional view of sexuality in this context. This won't happen through the auspices of a 'celibate' all male clergy. Sorry you true believers.
