Sex Is Neither Positive nor Negative
The awesome force of sexuality and its power to create confusion in the human mind is enormous. Indeed, the intensity of desire that the force of sexuality arouses within the human mind and body almost always creates a sense of insecurity within the individual. The presence of insecurity in any form is often frightening. Many experience a loss of equilibrium in the face of overwhelming desire, and the tremendous insecurity experienced at times like these causes the individual to want to find a way to escape.
There are fundamentally two positions taken in relationship to the awesome force of sexuality. One is that sex is positive—Good, Healthy and Natural. The other is that sex is negative—Bad, Dirty and Evil. Both of these positions represent a form of escape from the insecurity that the overwhelming power of sexual desire arouses within the individual. The form of escape that I’m referring to represents a fixed position. And it is this fixed position that enables the individual to avoid the inevitable confrontation with their humanity that the arousal of the sexual force always demands.
The sexual force in and of itself is neither positive nor negative. But the tremendous insecurity that its presence generates within the individual and the desire to escape from that insecurity cause almost all to perceive what is inherently a neutral force as either positive or negative. The sexual force is the expression of the impersonal power of creation itself. The impersonal power of creation cares not for the individual. Its relationship to the individual is always neutral and could only be neutral, as the sexual force is blind, creative energy that has no consciousness and no individuality. The individual’s desire to escape from its overwhelming intensity alone is what creates the illusion of polarity where none actually exists.
