Consider this series of drawings from an old alchemy text. They are one of several such series.
rosarium philosophorum

You may also view them here, where you can click on each image to enlarge it a bit.

These images seem to record a mystery that is often also referred to as the sacred marriage, "hierosgamos" or "conjunction of opposites." Are they strictly symbolic of some non-physical union, or do they point to the need for actual union of the sexes as part of a spiritual ritual? Can you learn anything about this mystery?

"How do we move our sexual energy up through the throat chakra, and put an end to this trend of sexual confusion/distress?"

Dear Fellow Detectives,
sacred marriageI started working on an article today and the Alice A. Bailey material kept "intruding." I read again something I had forgotten was in the book "A Compilation on Sex," (p.82) which I want to share. Even if you aren't familiar with the Bailey material, "pretend" that you are. As you know, I'm fascinated by all the different sacred texts that have similar "takes" on the connection between sex and spirituality. I could as easily frame this same basic question in terms of three or four other metaphysical texts. Today's "flavor" is Alice Bailey, so please do your best to play along.

Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail - Ralph Waldo Emerson

lightThis blog has an unusual mission: to record what Spirit has to say about metaphysical mysteries.

From time to time I will post queries, and poll various people who are willing to do some inner listening about them. Replies will be posted below the queries (listed below).

All of this is done anonymously. The purpose is not to debate the answers, but to share them, in hopes that we can inspire each other to raise vital topics and gain clear insight about them.
