PUTTING SEX IN IT'S RIGHT PLACE
You ever been in love? You ever been heartbroken? The two, may be related. You ever grown tired of a love you once felt, or ever felt the pain of another turning their back on the love they once felt for you? Have you ever known the drunken pleasures of falling in love, only to find your mind bedevilled later in feelings of jealousy or limited by the chain like constraints of undesired possession by another, limiting to your life?
Human love is many things and holds many things. Attraction, sexual desire, admiration of beauty, the satisfaction of possession, the connection of like minds and hearts, the attraction of the opposites. 'My' woman, 'my' girl, 'my' man, 'my' boy. 'My', 'my', 'my'. The sting in the tail of attraction is it can fade in time, and what was once thought of as the ultimate pinnacle of desire, can become something rather less enticing to the heart. Sexual fulfilment is something most every human being seeks. And seeks to repeat throughout life, until time, age or death, negates the possibility. You ever wonder why? Is this a strange question?
Like a lot in our life, sexual fulfilment, is a most often a repetition of pleasure from a past memory and a societal conditioning. In part. But there is something about the action of sex, which goes unnoticed. The attraction of this is beyond physical in nature, there is an element of spirituality here.
Here, the traditionally religiously minded will surely raise their eyebrows in contempt. What possibly, could the sexual act have to do with the stirring of the soul? Listen carefully, watch carefully, the next time your heart draws your actions to the person of your desires. The initial pull is from memory. This is desire. Desire arises from pleasure previously met, you cannot desire, what you do not know.
The seeking of a previous action which brought great pleasure to the mind previously, or has been fantasied over as a wished for happening. What about sex, brings this deep sense of pleasure, demanding periodic continuous repetition? We are not judging sex, we are not saying it is right or wrong. We are exploring a common activity to likely all of humanity.
We are exploring sex.
The sensation of touch, the mutual caress, the entwine of two becoming one, the intoxication of the emotions stimulated through the touch of another. And through touching another. The gradual build of intense inner passion leading to an orgasmic explosion of delight in each others arms.
Then it’s over. And the feeling has greatly changed. But the seeds of the experience have been stored in memory and memory remembers and in time the desire for the repetition of the same delights returns.
There is another issue with sex which you may not have noticed. It changes consciousness temporarily for the duration of those moments of delight. More on that later.
Human consciousness is an affair of occupation. Constant chattering, constantly changing imagery, centred around a concept of self. Human consciousness is greatly an ongoing inner reflection of the outer world and experiences we have travelled in our recent past. But all past is the nature of human consciousness, for human consciousness is nothing other than memory.
Human consciousness can become a rather burdening experience for so many. Life can be brutal and all is memorised, a patterned approach to life set in stone thanks to twelve years of schooling, when all of humanity is brainwashed into memorisation as the accurate functional approach to life of the brain. And as life can be brutal, conflicted, painful and bringing tears, such memories are as equally stored and equally rise by this inner scholastically set pattern of living in memory as any other.
Next, we have the issue of the observer of thought within human consciousness, the 'self', the 'ego', the 'me', 'myself' and 'I'. This is a central dominating feature of consciousness. The self lives and is accepted to be the creator of this inner world which encapsulates him (or her). The thinker of thoughts. An external contributor to thought, an organiser within all field of thinking, all field of knowledge, all field of memory, all field of the past.
The world of thinking is a reflection of the outside world. And the outside world is a reflection of the inner world. The inner world of thinking has gained its structure and its content, which are the same thing, from the outside world. And this inner structure builds the outer world in its continuity, for we all act on thinking and so our actions repetitively and automatically lead our lives to building our society in the nature our society built our minds. We, are responsible for this world, as much as this world is responsible for us, the whole thing is one gigantic loop. Outer to inner, inner to outer. A wave like motion. Going out. coming in.
Catholic indoctrination of a child leads to a human adult valuing a belief in God and un burdening of the weight of their souls in confession. This inner world peculiar to Catholic (but not only) demands the continuity of the outer world to satisfy the inner need. The inner need, which was placed there by the outer structure of Catholicism. A process ongoing now for thousands of years. And in every area of life, the same thing is happening.
Human beings demand to be led by an authority, there is a feeling of security here, that someone has control, someone is in charge, someone is ordering life. All I need do is follow that lead. This particular conditioning, of course has been arrived at through the many years of schooling in which a child is commanded to follow the dictates of the classroom teacher.
The child grows into the adult, the adult sees value in this system named education, which is actually a conformity to a mechanical repetitive pattern of life, and values a ‘good’ education for their child in high concern. The demand of the parent creates the continuity of the system and this demand was created initially by the previous continuity of the same system which placed such seeds to grow in time within the brain of the child, now an adult.
Take all and every area of life which is held in any measure of continuity and you will inevitably meet the same pattern. Individual, personal, to national, collective, religious, ideological. The outer contact creates the inner conceptualisation of the same which creates the continuing road for the outer continuity represented by the inner conceptualisation to continue.
Are you beginning to see how this works? We are this world, and so it is us which need to change, if we desire a good world. For this is not a good world, and this world is reflective of our inner consciousness.
Every action we take, we take from thinking and thinking acts from previously learned, educated and gathered experiences, and this repeats the process in inner conceptuality, which demands that that which has been inner represented is continued, giving birth to the continuity of outer which again seeds the newly arriving generation, and the whole process starts over once more. I feel dizzy.
We are always engaging in the outer world, seeking to bring order there, seeking to establish continuity, from diversities as wide as relationships and religion, as though the problems of the outer world stood on their own, independent of the mental processes which build and maintain them.
Let’s get back to Catholicism for a while, which is perhaps a strange bed partner to sex, we will come back to sex later, so don't go away. I wonder which of these words greater stimulates the independent readers of them? Which, will depend greatly on how society has greatly imprinted their value in to the brain you call yours. Later, we will reveal another interesting aspect to sex, a facet on this eternally generally repetitively continually demanded explosion of delight for all of humanity.
Catholicism has been with us a long time. Long, and many, have been the years in which this religious ideology has permeated the memory cells of the human brain. This ideology has evolved and the nature of its impact on the outer world has evolved as it has evolved. It remains in its process of evolution, which is a movement on the ground of continuity. Today, this ordering is seeing fit to rewrite the original ten commandments, in line with the Great Reset. Books of the Bible, it’s workshop manual have been discarded dependant on the tastes and the perceived value given by the mental processes of Popes and Emperors of years gone by.
The church no longer burns people at the stake to save their souls, protecting the sanctity of an ideology by destroying the physical sacred manifestation of life, nor does it involve itself in the persecution of heretics, nor inquisitions, (thank God), it has changed. But it is still the church, it is still considered a movement of great value and a source of virtuous meaning in the lives of so many. In the minds of so many. In the minds of people who the Church indoctrinated at a young age who now find their security in the continuity of the Church.
We are not attacking the Church; neither are we attacking sex. God forbid. We are observing. And questioning. Walking together. Like two friends, hand in hand.
Sex functions in the same way. We are not saying there should not be sex. Sex has its place. As all, has its place, other than continuities, for the sake of continuity, which have no place at all, but are held in infinity by the automated process of continuity of this psychological, physical relationship being described here. The process of living in memory denies the new quality of life, be it a meeting of religion, or sex.
Sex has been so, so, so encouraged, by western society, initially. This process has spread over the whole world. Playboy, pornography, the love scenes of so many televised movies, the semi naked models strewn across everything for sale, from car bonnets, to toothpaste. Sex sells. Sex sells, because sex is on everyone’s minds and sex is on everyone’s minds, because society put it there. And then those minds put it back again. Not only this of course, sex, is the physical action responsible for the continuity of the movement of life itself. And sex is deeply enjoyable, never more so than with a partner valued in life beyond the value of the deeply pleasurable act itself. Sex for the sake of sex may be a cheap, repetitive affair and in comparison, can be a highly unsatisfying or a fairly meaningless experience.
Our world has conditioned our mind in another way. And as in the case of all things conditioned, that conditioning manifests itself in thought which then manifests in action and structures our world. This is the greatest and most damaging of all conditionings. In your own mind, which is not your own mind, for the consciousness of humanity is shared, it is very similar between us all.
Beliefs may differ, nationalistic pride may differ, the member of the opposite sex hungered towards, or even the nature of their gender itself which pulls may differ, occupations may differ, political leanings may differ, ideas may differ, but we all hold some degree of all. And so the structure is the same, as the structure of the physical brain manifesting all this conceptualisation is the same.
The brain of humanity has been involved in a process of evolution over millions of years. If you do not believe in evolution, then think of it like this. It has been around a long time, and during that time, it has changed. Everything about life is involved in change over time. But there is one area which, although it appears to change, is more married to a process of modified continuity than to an ending of what came prior.
Change is an ending, a replacement to what came before, the old has gone, the new has arrived, and this is change. This is not the change found within human consciousness. The change within human consciousness is a constant modification of what came before, not an ending. A process of modified continuity. And the reason is deeply related to the conditioning mentioned earlier, the most damaging of all yet to be divulged.
This conditioning is the human self, and this human self is you, the person now reading these words. The thinker of thoughts, the clung to continuity of past remembered and now psychologically stored experiences, the believer in Catholicism, or any other religion, the energy which feels the desire and pleasure and pull of repetitively engaging in the act of sex.
You are movement within consciousness. You may feel as though you are divided from consciousness, this is a common phenomenon, as though thought, psychologically frequently chatters at some distance from where the observer stands. Undoubtedly you concern yourself with the organisation of thought in some way. You, are the believer, you are the one who relishes the tender touches of a lover’s body and the softness of the contact in a kiss. You are the one who feels attracted to one, and not to another, as you feel attracted to a belief and not another, as you feel a sense of patriotic pride to one nation and not to another.
Do you see how the consciousness of all humanity is one? We all stand on the same ground, what differs between us are the inner objects of our attachments, desires, pleasures and sources of pain. But we all meet attachments, desires, pleasures and pains. From King to pauper, from Pope to sinner, from President to street sleeper. The ground of humanity is human consciousness and human consciousness is one movement, divided by content, shared between all. All content arrives from memorised arising past experiences. This is where the difference in content is birthed. No one has the same past experiences.
I cannot desire a girl I have never met. I cannot worship a belief I have never heard of. I cannot vote for the member of a political party in another nation. I cannot live in continuity of a life I have not previously experienced. This is an easy way to live. To live in continuity of past may be the safest way to live. For I know the past, the present and the future are out of reach of knowledge. Knowledge is what is known, and what is known, is past. Perhaps the safest way to live and the most fraught with danger at the same time.
Living on the past as we do, as we have been societally conditioned to do, we are forever living on a ground of continuity, modifying the form of that continuity in time. This continuity joins us together in perpetual movement from past to future together, however this continuity also divides us, as we are all parts of a divisive continuing whole. Some are continuing the Catholic tradition, others the Protestant or Muslim, some the Jewish, others the Palestinian, some are British, some European, some American, some Russian, some Ukrainian. This is part of our identity, which is what we are inwardly, which shapes the world outwardly held in perpetual modified conflicting continuity. Continuity, because, although on close introspection this is a factor of unification between us all, we live on the surface of the human mind, identifying with these divisive learned concepts. Under this, the source is the same. Divisive human memory identifying as self.
In this way, we see each other as divided. And divisions, all divisions, are the required fertile ground from which all of conflict is given birth. One does not conflict; it takes at least two. The higher the number of divisions the greater the potential for conflict. The root of all divisions is in human self. Storehouse of all identifying memories, self interest and attachment. The root of all others. All are doing the same, all in a divisive fashion, one, from another. In every field of life. We are, what needs to change, if we are to ever meet a caring world.
A sobering fact, for taking only two divisions present to our race, represented by outer ideologies projected from inner conditioning fuelling those outer ideologies seeding their continuity in continual psychological conditioning are these: traditional religion and traditional national identity. Over four thousand two hundred traditional religions and one hundred and ninety-seven nations makes for a very potentially troubled world. And this is only two areas of division from the same structure of human consciousness out of likely countless. The danger in what we find security living in and as, is ushering us all into a very difficult life.
Recognisably here already, it will worsen unless we act.
There remains even through all this darkness of divided living, a glimmer of light. The cycle can be broken. We attempt this already by attacking what we consider an opposing view to our own, externally. We seek to dominate the other. This is conflict and this is war. This is the Great Reset. And this does not ever work as the bloodied divisive recorded history of all of mankind lays testimony to.
As the processes of outer society are built by inner conceptions placed there by that society seeking the eternal stability of their own divisive continuity, we can come to challenge this destructive movement of memory, which is what is in continuity, at the area of the conceptual within, which insists upon its continuity, rather than attack its manifestation without, which is that continuity manifest and what we usually engage our energies within. Society does attempt this, through coercion, dictatorship, mind control, drugs, reward and punishment. This also, has never succeeded. A subtler form of war, than war. A seeking to change by outer force upon the inner nature placed there by the outer modifying the outer in perpetual divisive continuity.
Anyone else getting a headache?
This may seem complex, and it is, but unless we can come to terms and find an action to truly impact our lives, human beings are going to be living a highly troubling conflicting life existence worsening with each heartbeat of continuity into all of eternity. Until the inevitability arrives that we succeed to progress our divisive ways out of all existence.
At least here, in cessation of existence, our conflicts and the suffering it brings will come to an end. Thank God nothing lasts forever. Continuity, one way or another, is guaranteed a destination. It's ending.
But let’s posit a potential for a miracle. Not the return of Jesus, nor divine intervention, for I hear God cannot be bothered doing for us what we can do for ourselves, and if God cannot be bothered, his son, who is one with his father must be of similar nature. No matter how complex the puzzle may appear on first glance. It is our puzzle, we are the puzzle and we are the recipients of its continuity and we are the only ones who can figure this all out.
The issue is in seeing the problem clearly. Seeing the problem freely. Seeing the problem as it is. If I cannot see the problem well, I can never resolve the problem. And the problem is me, for I am the inner nature which demands the divisive continuity of all outward divisions which lead us to war. And this demand is being fuelled by an inner nature of belief and conceptual attachments, which was put in place by those same outward continuing movements, seeking security within the continuity and proliferation of their own fragmented and so divisive outlooks on life.
I bet you are getting a headache by now. Take an aspirin, I make no apologies, for this is the problem. At least, the problem described in words. Seeing beyond descriptions brings action. Penetrating the complex is only possible by a very simple mind. One, need only look.
Where can we impact this complex issue, to free our race from these chains of continuity in time?
I am going to tell you, but you must never accept what I have to say. Or anyone else. I am going to tell you in the nature of a man who sees something, which has great value, and understands that the seeing of this great value is the quality of that value. The man is unimportant, what he sees is the important thing. You can see it too. The words describing it all are conceptual, and lead nowhere. Other than to the building of another fragment of continuity, an idea to be carried, discussed or argued over and so a contributory factor to the overall problem which needs to end.
We can impact this destructive complexity through a process of a close, dedicated, passionate, stubborn and unceasing observation of the nature of our mind. The human mind. One mind.
Divided into billions of fragments.
There is one area in particular within this inner noise of hidden silence which is of particular benefit to understand. And understanding is a process of seeing, not the acceptance of a concept recorded into word and images, to be followed. I am not an authority. I am a simple man, who is pointing out things he sees after many years of considered observation in the area he talks about. The area of human consciousness and human relationship and how this impacts our lives and the society we live within.
I feel a passion to convey this to others, for I am not a physically well man and my time remaining here may be limited. All our time is. Some more so than others. I have done better than a lot to reach my present age of sixty. I have little fear of death, a lot less than the presenting direction of continuity of our race, unless we change.
This particular area of interest I have held is what you consider yourself to be. In my case, it has been what I consider to be me. Same thing. Your ‘self’. The thinker of your thoughts. I am going to point out something, but again, the words are valueless, as useful as describing the immense beauty found from the top of a mountain to a man who has no desire to climb and see the actual view. As useful as describing the face of the most beautiful woman to a friend, without his or her ability to ever see that face himself. The description does not contain what it describes.
The thinker is the thought. Thought is the thinker.
Remove all thought, you have removed the thinker, which is why this chattering never stops, if it did, you would disappear, and you, in continuity, are what provides a sense of security to the brain. This is societal conditioning, we don’t all become great successes in life, but we all become something. A self. Nothing other than a progression of divisive images and words.
Not, very flattering is it?
This inner line of continuity manifesting in human inward self, is what we all achieve to become. Actually we are pushed into this. For this is a line of continuity society has insisted upon. A broken corrupted divisive competitive society instil its own values into its subjects. Today, the instilling of values has declined. Because human consciousness in continuity is held in a process of decay. As its mirror reflection, society is in decay. That which continues decays. It needs to end, and be reborn. Both society and consciousness. It begins with consciousness. We can do little to impact society. We can impact our mind.
Seeing that the thinker is the thought is the beginning of transformation in the human mind, and so the beginning of transformation of our outer world of our divisive suffering. This duality is conceptual and the continuity of this conceptuality can be broken through by keen awakened persistent observation. In such a way, the human mind enters a transformation, it begins to revolutionise within itself. A new structure is being born related to the truth of what has been uncovered. To do so, you must suspend all knowledge of what you think about human consciousness, and simply look. See what it is.
A new mind is needed to build a new world. A free mind is needed to build a free world. A loving mind is needed to build a loving mind. An intelligent mind is needed to build an intelligent world. None of these is possible if our lives are approached in divisive continuity of programmed self-interest. Interest, which is the very predominant nature of the self itself. That's you.
Look at thought. Just look, listen as you would listen to raindrops patter on a window. Make no effort. Pay particular attention to nothing, pay particular attention to all. For here, is where our only potential salvation lies. In the understanding of the self, which holds our outer existence in perpetual conflicted continuity.
Lets jump back between the sheets and return to the passion of sex. Perhaps more willingly discussed than such complex issues of great importance. You know why sex became such a fascination for our race? Beyond the pleasure, which is vast. Beyond the expression of the appreciation of another life sharing yours. Which may also be vast. Sex became of such importance, because for the time periods of sex, as long as short as may be depending on stamina, the thinker, the self, with all concerns, all problems, all continuity and all divisions, comes to an end. The sexual act is all consuming. Self-denying. The self is forgotten. Watch this if you doubt, next time you participate within this act in your lovers arms.
So perhaps two approaches now appear. We could engage in sexual delights enclosed in lovers embraces and steamy endeavour forever. But the pleasure soon wears off, the attraction wanes and that which was previously so mystical and magical, a longed for embrace, can become an inconsequential bore. So this isn’t the answer, as appealing as it may be in comparison to the arduous nature of self-awareness, and self-understanding of this complex inner nature of what we are. This is arduous.
Or we could bite this bullet, study, work hard, understanding the importance, through understanding how our own patterned societally educated approaches to life are what are fuelling the movements toward our own self destruction.
Put sex in its right place. Put thought in its right place also. And put your life in its right place. Meeting this world through the senses in this present moment and responding to it responsibly, which may include sex, thinking and certainly, religion. All new versions. Rather than wasting your life in divisive conceptual continuity of the old so damaging to us all.
Free from the damaging limitations of educated divisive societal conditioned conceptual time. Free, from self. Free.
Hello to all, I am a 60 year old man who has spent the best part of his life studying the teachings of J.Krishnamurti. My name is Henryk. I am rather unimportant, although what I talk about on these pages, has great importance. Particularly today, in this dark world, led by men of infinite wealth, unfortunately without the intelligence to match. My work here stands on the shoulders of that of J.Krishnamurti. Without this man's passion and great life understanding, this website would never have existed. His effect on my own life has been immeasurable. A man of infinite vision and wisdom, who spent over 60 years of his life travelling the world and discussing life and societal problems. Krishnamurti passed away in the 1980s. Anyone interested in the nature of discussion in the content of this site, will likely find great interest in the work of Krishnamurti. Hundreds of videos may be found on YouTube. There is a link above dedicated to his work to which new content is planned to be regularly added. The beauty of truth in life, is that it is identical for each one of us. Truth is the place we all come to meet in unity. And truth belongs to no man. Only pointless opinions, divisive, traditional, educated into and gathered by us, may be claimed as ownership. The change in our world so desperately needed this day, is within us, not external to our lives. All man's actions begin in the area of human thinking, it is this needs understood and brought to revolution. Thanks for taking the time to visit, a few posts are being added to the site weekly at the moment, when I find time. If you would like to support the work here, you can do so from the price of a cup of coffee each month, contributors are invited to online discussions. If you would like to contribute, our Patreon page may be found at the following address: www.patreon.com/rainbow_warriors.
