yeah......... you can count me in as the one who wants to be Christ's lover......... yet i have the sense that the longing of which you speak is more the longing for joining............ joining is the soul longing for reunion with the spirit. and in the embrace the ecstasy is infinite in its scope. this is this true simple purity of relationship that very often is misinterpreted as sexual desire.
now i'm not saying that the physical expression of such an intimate and deep love is not a beautiful symbol of this spiritual union. sexual intimacy is as close as two bodies can come in fulfilling this desire of spirit......... but truly the joining first happens in mind. it is the desire to give completely to another and yes......... in that moment time does indeed disappear along with all the things that make us believe we are separate. there no longer are "two bodies" but one love expressing and unifying apparent polarity.
Raj said that the intimacy of being awake is so total that it is infinitely orgasmic. he also said that if bodies were to pass through each other........the soul experience could only be described as the being heighth of a sexual experience magnified infinitely.
Raj also said that we don't have a mind.....we ARE Mind.....and the bodies that we think we are......are nothing more than pure divine energy. although we think we are bodies......we are not.
so sexual orgasm may be the heighth of the physical expression of love between two whose sole/soul purpose is the joined experience of giving......but i think as we move more and more into intimacy in mind......the need for physical expression will diminish because it will probably pale in comparison. at least that is what Raj seems to be implying to me. perhaps realizing true intimacy is minimally about the physical and more about "baring all" in mind.
as we move into Mind/Soul consciousness.......and experience a more complete wholeness of who we are.....ALL of us as One Son......the purpose of the body and its meaning will hold a different significance for us because God's meaning will take center stage and so what we express through it will be different than our current definitions of expressed love.
the idea of infinite orgasms is a great inspiration to awakening. sounds like a plan to me!!!
