The Mystery of the Golden Blossom: Sexual Magic
Magic, according to Novalis, is the art of influencing the inner world consciously.
It is written with fiery coals in the extraordinary book of life that the ardent love between man and woman works magically.
Hermes Trismegistus, the thrice-great God Ibis of Thoth, said in his Emerald Tablet: “I give thee love, within which the whole summum of wisdom is contained.”
All of us possess some electrical and magnetic forces within, and, just like a magnet, we exert a force of attraction and repulsion... Between lovers that magnetic force is particularly powerful and its action has a far-reaching effect.
Sexual Magic (the Sahaja Maithuna) between husband and wife is based on the polar properties which certainly have their potential element in sex.
Neither hormones nor patented vitamins are what we need for life, but rather authentic knowledge of YOU and ME, hence the interchange of the most selected, affective and erotic faculties between man and woman.
The medieval asceticism of the bygone age of Pisces rejected sex, characterizing it as taboo or sin.
The new revolutionary asceticism of Aquarius is based on sex. It is clear that the clue of all powers is found within the mysteries of the lingam-yoni.
From the intelligent combination of sexual yearning and spiritual enthusiasm arises, as if by enchantment, magical consciousness.
A wise author said:
“Sexual Magic leads to the unity of the Soul and sensuality, in other words, to vitalized sexuality. Sexuality is no longer characterized as suspicious and scornful, to be practiced only in secrecy and with a certain confessed shame; on the contrary, it is placed at the service of a marvelous rejoicing of life, permeated by it and elevated to a component of the affirmation of existence, which happily assures the equilibrium of free personality.”
We urgently need to escape from the dismal daily tendency of vulgar ordinary coupling and to enter into the luminous sphere of magnetic equilibrium in order to rediscover oneself in one’s spouse, to find in him/her the path of the razor’s edge, the secret way which leads to the final liberation.
“Only when we know and use the laws of magnetism between bodies and souls will all the words spoken about love, sex and sexuality cease to be transitory, senseless images, mists that vanish with the light.”
The tremendous difficulty in the study of Sexual Magic is evident, since Sexual Yoga, the Maithuna, with its control over the most delicate nervous currents and the multiple subconscious, infra-conscious, and unconscious influences over the soul, is not easy to demonstrate as apprehensible and visible.
Let us speak clearly and bluntly: this theme of Sexual Yoga is a matter of direct, intimate experimentation, something very personal.
In Sexual Magic, it is essential that we renounce bestial concupiscence for the sake of spirituality if we truly want to find Ariadne’s thread of ascension, the golden twine that will take us from darkness to light, from death to immortality.
A great philosopher whose name I do not want to mention said,
“If the authentic procreative energies of both Soul and Spirit are situated in the depths of our consciousness, then it is precisely within the sympathetic nervous system that we encounter the mediator and guide to internal reality with its radiating network of sensitive ganglia, which not only influences the organs of the Soul but also governs, directs and controls the most important centers within the body; in the same mysterious manner it guides the marvel of conception to the birth of a new being, as well as the phenomena of the heart, kidneys, suprarenal capsules, generative glands, etc.
“On the other hand, the sympathetic nervous system as the authentic Spiritus Creator of the body with all its spirituality and sensitivity to the rhythms of life, attempts to balance all subordinate psychic and physical elements in the rhythm of the Universe through the direction of molecular currents and the crystallization of cosmic rays.
“Indeed, this Nervus Sympaticus is also a Nervus Ideoplasticus which must be understood as the mediator between our unconscious instinctual life and the moderation of the living image impressed in our Spirit from many eternities. It is the great medium equilibrator which can pacify and reconcile the perpetual polarity in the rising and setting of the soul’s sun, in the manifestations of black and white, love and hate, God and devil, exaltation and discouragement.”
The divine androgyne from the first human root race, Adam Kadmon, procreated themselves with only willpower and magic imagination united in vibrant harmony.
The ancient sages of the Kabbalah affirmed that such volitional and imaginative power was lost because of the fall into sin; this is why the human being was cast out of Eden.
The synthesis of this magnificent conception from the Hebraic Kabbalah is based on a tremendous truth. Therefore, the precise function of Sexual Magic is to reestablish that original divine unity of paradisiacal androgyny within ourselves.
A certain sage emphatically stated the following:
“Sexual Magic works transfiguring the body and brings about an ideal accentuation within the soul of that which is sexual. For this reason only those beings who try to overcome the dualistic dilemma between the world of the soul and that of the senses are capable of Sexual Magic; those beings who are endowed with innermost wakefulness, those who are absolutely free from any kind of hypocrisy, sanctimoniousness, denial or devaluation of life.”
