All Religions are telling us that we should omit a passionate, sexual love.
Because when we are passionate we lose our calmness and can’t find peace in our mind.
When we live our passions, and the greatest passion is love, we lose our fears and in the end, we will find peace in our mind.
If we don’t live our passions, we suppress our fears and many years later the suppressed fears will cripple our life. And that result we can see in the old people.
Most of the old people want to dictate our life that we should not live a passionate sexual love.
Because they didn’t have lived it either;
cannot live it anymore;
and they are jealous of the young people.
In the famous novel “Siddharta” written by Herman Hesse, is a guy who had the longing to find the truth and renounced his worldly life.
Siddharta could understand that renunciation will not lead to anything.
Afterward, he was engaged in a passionate worldly life and when he was fed up with the worldly life he renunciate again.
Again, he was drawn in a worldly life and finally he found the truth…
I lived a similar life, was a devotee of Bhagwan; I found God in a tantric love and then I was 12 years in meditation retreats with celibacy… And now, I live both…
The famous Sufi book: “Conference of the birds” written by Attar wants both: to renunciate the world and to live a passionate sexual life.
Why? Attar was one of the greatest Sufis … he could understand that the greatest renunciation is to love a woman.
For that, we should be well trained in the renunciation of the world. Otherwise, our love will be shallow and not so deep that we can discover God/Allah in our love.
If you are 90 years old, do you think that you will regret that you could not live a passionate love?
With 90 years you can’t live that love anymore.
Why not take your chance now, live your passionate sexual love and don’t be afraid of the suffering….
In the end, you have done well.
