The act of sex is a spiritual thing.
Since sex is the ultimate expression of love between two people, it
should be undertaken by two people who have agreed to live their lives
together and be as the Bible puts it, become one flesh. In its reality, it is
not just the merging of two flesh, which is physically impossible but
the merging of two souls and their spirits. It is in this knowledge
that sex, in many societies is ideally placed as a post marital
Anyone who gets into a sexual relationship goes into
a spiritual bond with their partner, a bond that won’t easily be
broken. And as long as that bond exists, the partners will always seek
each other. If it is a sexual relationship between unmarried persons,
the drive to seek each other, which is not socially bound because there
is no marriage, will most often drive one partner or the other into
another person’s arms since the other person they established that bond with might not be available at that time - or they might have moved on.
soul cannot find that bond in this new person, it will not be satisfied
and would want to go on searching. Unfortunately, it would have created
another bond with this second person and therefore one soul would be
seeking two souls it might not get. The scattered nature of such a
search will drive the soul more and more to different people to find
what is is seeking but cannot find. And the more it seeks the more it
bonds itself with others and become more unsatisfied.
Let us not look at
it as a spiritual abstraction, but a reality. Every soul operates in a
body and the body responds to the desires of the soul and the spirit.
And as long as these intangible and controlling parts of our beings are
not satisfied, they would drive us to their bidding.
practical manifestation of this is that anyone who has had promiscuous
relationships finds it very difficult to stick to one partner. They
might stay but will still look around. Those who prove faithful do so because most often, the condition to go else where might not exist. Most of such people easily fall when they are subjected to intense temptation.
Again, married women/men with premarital sexual
experiences with people other than their partners are more likely to sleep again with those people from their past or with other people than people whose only sexual
experience is with their partners.
It is again easy for people
who have had multiple sexual relationships to break relationships;
premarital or marital ones. This is all so because of the different
bonding the soul has undergone and therefore its lack of definite
channel of flow.
Every parent would want to see their children grow up
to be responsible parents of their own. If this will happen, they need to teach
them to abstain from what they cannot handle once they touch it. No
individual is ever the same once they have had one form or the other of a
sexual encounter. It is easier for victims of sustained physical abuse to
be rehabilitated than victims of rape even though they all happen on
the person of the individual. It is easy to rehabilitate and completely
set free a drug addict than to separate a person from sexual addiction.
it is spiritual and an integral part of every human which stems from
within. Every other addiction is introduced into the body or the spirit and
therefore can be removed.
Let us take care of our souls and spirits well, aside them, we are just dust.
