Luscious Spirituality:  Getting Religion is Losing Religion

Luscious Spirituality: Getting Religion is Losing Religion

Wynn Manners, an online friend of mine, who goes way, way back to the early 90’s, suggested that I start writing what I used to write on my Yahoo! Groups page, called “Sophia’s Web”.  What I wrote were named Morning Meds.  By meds, there is the double meaning of meditation and medication.  Meditation is true medication.  So, this is my first “Morning Meds” Blog.  “Dude, pass the pipe!”

Today I wish to speak about oral ecstasy.  Yes, we are speaking of oral sex here, to some degree.  Aren’t all interactions an act of intercourse?  What are these words if not seminal inputs entering into the black hole called the pupil of thy eye and being conceived in the back of your brain as an image.

Why else would an idea be considered a concept?  Its a conception!  DUH!  Oh, tickle my fancies with Thy tongue and send me flying into heights unattained by any woman or man before me!

My main thrust in writing is spiritual. Writing is a form of oral sex.  Life is intercourse.  Everything is spiritual, including sexuality.  The term religion, in its epistemological roots, is reli-gere, literally meaning “to connect.”  Religion is NOT an idealism, its about relationship, about connection.  Religion is about holiness, which boils into wholeness.  Its about unity through intercourse.  What is this conversation?  Yet, if you are talking about religion in a dogmatic or rational way, you ain’t got it!  Religion is a sigh, or a “YES!” and sometimes simply “OHHHHH!”

If you are immersed in theologies and church doctrine, you’re way off base.  These are not religion.  They are idealisms.  If you are nursing a baby and feeling a deep connection in looking into those big brown eyes, you’ve got religion.  Anything else, dogma, theories, theologies, etc are simply ideal-isms.  Ideas are nothing more nor less than ghostly vapors arising from your mind…or in the case of indoctrination, someone else’s mind.

So, therein lies the title to this piece…getting religion is loosing religion.  You have to let go of the the theories, philosophies, and ideals and become as you were when you were not.  This is your beginning.  To be newborn, you have to do the striptease of the mind and be as nude as the day you were born.

So, take off thy institutionalized religious clothes and dance!

Now, all this gets to be even more fun and inspirational when you awaken to the fact that whole, hole and holy are one word. Knowing this unity is true religion, or connection. What is empty (hole) is what is full (whole).  Yes, empty thy mind of conditioning and be as “you were when you were not.” When you enter this nudity, you enter into a virgin state of mind in which infinite potentials abound.

But don’t follow me.  Experience it.  Become empty and be full!  Be newborn, be free of yourself.  IN that freedom from yourself, you will be full of yourself!

Oh, becoming virgin is the most remarkable state of sexual ecstasy you can ever encounter!  Just ask Maria.  Look at what She generated.  Ok, so the Roman institutional foundations got hold of the virgin birth story and the so-called Church became identified with Rome.   We’ll discuss that one another time.

By the way, being virgin means being unconditioned…..what?

“You mean to say, Burl, that all these years of schooling and conditioning and I’m to throw it all away in order to give birth to the sacred within?”  Yes, this is exactly  what I’m saying.

As the Tao Te Ching sings, “be newborn, be free of yourself.”  Or as Christ says upon looking upon a nursing infant, “be like him.”  You really think Lao Tzu and Jesus Christ were far apart in Nature’s mind?

Can you see why the Jews/Romans came after the Christ Child?  30 years of schooling and indoctrination and S(HE) is just letting go of all of it?

In meditation, you can experience all this.  The Holy works of the Bible, Upanishads, Vedas, Tao Te Ching, etc are ultimately within you.  These are only externalized expressions of what is within.  Even these words I write: where are they really if not within you?

Ultimately, words can never tap into the power of raw, nonverbal experience.  Yes, a delighted lover can only reel back and cry “YES!”

Gaze upon your Goddess/God and lie your head in Her-His chest and sigh deeply in the ecstasy of union, the true Divine Marriage.

This is what writing and the act of verbal intercourse is truly about.  Its about entering into a state of ecstasy.  This is the true function of writing.  Its all there as a dance enticing all of us to enter into the luscious and sensuous dance of Life.
