Transmutation of sexual energy requires regulation of sexual desire

by Alice A. Bailey[3]

...In no department of life will these coming great changes show more potently than in the attitude of man towards sex, and in the readjustment of the marriage relationship. This new attitude will gradually come about as the slowly developing science of psychology comes into its own. As man comes to understand his own threefold nature, and as the nature of consciousness and the depth of his own subconscious life are more truly grasped, there will take place, gradually and automatically, a change in the attitude of men towards women and of women towards their destiny. This needed change ... will come slowly, as the result of the intelligent interest of the next three generations. Alice A. Bailey The young people now coming into incarnation, and those who will come during the next century, will prove themselves well equipped to handle this problem of sex, because they can see more clearly than the older generation, and will think in wider and larger terms than is common today. They will be more group conscious and less individualistic and selfish; they will be more interested in new ideas than in the ancient theologies, and will be freer from prejudice and less intolerant than are the bulk of the well-meaning people of today....

The use of the procreative power was the "original sin." The result following the procreative act was to give to the human race the tendency to unlawful procreation; and this tendency was one of the means of bringing on ignorance and death in the world.

Mankind must overcome biological sex through union in order to awaken

Edgar Cayce

Cayce enthusiasts may also find this article of interest.

In the early part of this century a gifted channel, Edgar Cayce, picked up echoes of the deeper mystery that lies in true union of the sexes. His readings explain that Adam was as androgynous as his Creator prior to the split into sexes. Thereafter Adam was left with his male polarity while Eve inherited the female charge. This "electrical" imbalance furnishes a path to enlightenment when employed for that end. R.W. Krajenke, commenting on Cayce's work, summarized this insight as follows:

Jesus and loverThe holy relationship, a major step toward the perception of the real world, is learned. It is the old, unholy relationship, transformed and seen anew. The holy relationship is a phenomenal teaching accomplishment. In all its aspects, as it begins, develops and becomes accomplished, it represents the reversal of the unholy relationship. Be comforted in this; the only difficult phase is the beginning.
