Education?

March 11, 2014

edu2  We are told “formal” education began in Egypt about 5000 years ago, although military training was probably earlier.  In both China and India we are told it began 1200 years later, around 1800 BCE.  All formal education was based on “religion” as a mechanism for holding people together and controlling them.  In Egypt, it was the study of the gods Troth, etc.  In China it was Confucius.  In India it was Shiva and Shakti.  Then there was a pantheon of gods and goddesses.  Along came Judaism, with oral teachings until about 400 BCE according to some scholars or 1000 BC according to others and again we have religious teachings.  Most of these are based in fear.  This was followed by Christianity that really began with the Church at the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE.  It was formalized around 400 CE when Jerome translated the Bible from the three languages: Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic into Latin, and all the references to “Eros” were deleted and replaced with “Agape” which originally included Eros.  Around 800 CE, along came Islam.  Science, engineering and other disciplines were taught to build weapons for imperial expansion and fortifications as well as tombs to physically demonstrate how important religion is.  And here we are today.

One thing in common with all the “religions” is no mention of erotic love, except in the Upanishads, at least in the modern translations of these religions.   Many will talk about love in a round about way, but not really get into it.  It is my understanding, and I could be wrong, that Tantra evolved from the Upanishads.  I am sure there were other cultures extolling the virtues of erotic love, but not as well known as ancient India.  It appears to me, religion wishes to keep us away from erotic love.  Those who reject the church and focus on pleasure are of no threat to the control exercised by religion, so it is not only acceptable but also provides a mechanism for “divide and conquer.”

So where are we today?  I look around and I see Mammon as the “new” god, though he has been around since the dawn of civilization.  As Mammon’s servant, I see sexual pleasure.  Sexual pleasure is cool, because there may not be any real love there, and if there is, we can always change the focus back to pleasure.  At any rate, I have had a glimpse at what can happen with erotic love and other kinds of love, so that is what I “preach.”

Joyful Bioluminescence

November 11, 2011

ArtNobleFireflies Who am I?

I am a man blessed by knowing some fantastic women in my life and cursed with curiosity.  When I say, “knowing” I mean both in the Biblical sense and over the Internet.  The original title of this piece was “Orgasmic Bioluminescence.”  Because I observed it on orgasm as did the people I contacted or who contacted me to validate this experience. I quote two of them on the back cover of The Sacred Female.  A woman in Arkansas told me when she wanted to glow, she’d call a certain fellow in town, he’d come up the mountain, they would get it on, she would glow and that was it.

BUT, a woman recently shared with me she glowed while singing “And the Glory” in a chorus performing The Messiah.  Additionally, she was carrying a “bundle of joy” in her belly at the time.  Afterward, people asked her why the spot light was on her during that song and she had no idea what they were talking about!  The good news is it is not just about sex! And, we can be joyful in being with our beloved.

So what is it?

Bioluminescence is the opposite of photosynthesis.  You know, the process that takes light to activate chlorophyll in leaves to turn them green.  We also use light energy to run our bodies.  Sunshine is a “natural” Vitamin D.  Not really.  We take on the photons (light energy) to manufacture Vitamin D in our bodies.  Bioluminescence is simply the giving off of photons rather than the taking on.  We see it normally in fireflies and certain marine organisms.

What causes it?

Scientists, in their study of fireflies, etc., don’t know, but believe it to be associated with Adenosine Tri Phosphate (ATP).  ATP is like a wallet for energy, produced by the cells.  I don’t know about fireflies, but it carries energy through our bodies.  It this specific case, when we create an excess of energy, it is given off as photons through the skin.  It is rare and there is no money in it so science doesn’t study it.  Few have even heard of it.

How does it occur?

I learned from Chyna Pi in the ancient Sacred Shamanic Sexual texts it is called, “Dragon’s Fire/Breath” and is the result of a breathing exercise.  Think of hyperventilation.  When we engage in rapid, deep breathing, our fingers and toes go numb.  I imagine this exercise is something like that.  We build up O2 and reduce CO2 in our bodies.  But, there is more to it.  It also has to do with mental discipline and clearing the mind.  But consider, when making love, where you are focused on giving love through your body to your partner and open to receiving love from them, And there is not much else on your mind.

Now consider as you approach the orgasmic plateau, with a love focused mind, the autonomic nervous system takes over and naturally sets up the breathing rhythm to produce these results, mimicking the Shamanic breathing exercise.  Further, PET scans of humans having an orgasm show oxygen flow to the brain is shut off, where fMRI’s show an increase in blood flow.  There are a lot of things happening in the human body about which we have no knowledge.  We can only speculate, as I just did.  Let’s just say humans are fantastic creatures.

Here we can see how singing, a task that requires specialized breathing, can play into this.  We can also see how joy of singing this particular piece and the joy of being physically bonded with our beloved can produce this.  So, here we have a phenomenon that can be produced out of pure joy and the breathing associated with it, or simply by breathing alone, essentially mimicking the joy we feel.  Of course, this is speculation, but I like speculating this way.

Chicken or egg?

None of the men and women I contacted who claim to have observed or done this, ever mentioned “Dragon’s Fire/Breath” or “Shamanic Sex.”  Until I met Chyna Pi.  So, I’m thinking the non-sexual breathing exercise arose from sexual experience, not the other way around.  But, I also think the animal headed humans we see in ancient carvings from around the world arose from a transcendent sexual experience called Trespasso.  But, who knows?

This should not be considered a “goal” of sex, unless you have studied for years under a shaman who is familiar with it.  (There are few today.)  This is probably an expression, a physical manifestation of love and joy: the joy of being bonded with your beloved.  Simply focus on love and let go of everything else.  Something else just as wonderful may happen.  In the mean time, let us light up the world with the joy of being with our beloved.

Orgasmic Bioluminescence

 Who am I?

I am a man blessed by knowing some fantastic women in my life and cursed with curiosity.  When I say “knowing” I mean both in the Biblical sense and over the Internet.  A few men and women around the world validated my experience with orgasmic bioluminescence.  I quote two of them on the back cover of The Sacred Female.  A woman in Arkansas told me when she wanted to glow, she’d call a certain fellow in town, he’d come up the mountain, they would get it on, she would glow and that was it.

Why “they” Lie About Sex!

August 20, 2011

It is a very long story, part of which is only a different history theory, but let’s pick Genesis 6:2 as a beginning point.  The Bible stories of the first five books were pretty much straightened out under Moses around 1425 BCE.  Some scholars believe these books were first put on papyrus by Ezra for King Solomon’s Temple, around 1000 BCE, but modern consensus is the first recording occurred around 400 BCE.

Gen.6:2 says, “The sons of God looked upon the daughters of man and found them pleasurable.”  I was always in perfect agreement with this, although it goes on to condemn this as “wickedness.”  This is interpreted historically by Christianity that sexual pleasure is wicked!  However, Judaism recognized the inherent pleasure of sexual congress. The tractate of Niddah of the Talmud tacitly approves of pleasure during sex, stating that, if a woman takes part in copulation more passionately than the man, a son will be born, but if the man takes part more passionately than the woman, a daughter will be conceived.  Yet, both religions kept the purpose of sex as procreation.

A few of my readers know there is a lot more to sex than pleasure or procreation: a very few, and unfortunately, most are women.  I say unfortunately because when men finally catch on, this will be a different world!  The first thing about Gen. 6:2, is its inherent misogyny: men are better than women.  Why?  It certainly isn’t about agrarian economics because women worked the fields alongside men.  But men became soldiers, needed for conquest!

Gen. 6:2 is a double-edged sword, but only one side is honed.  Yes, sex is quite pleasurable and if we focus on pleasure that is what we will receive and we may pick up a couple of kids along the way.  And, yes, sex does produce kids.  But, save The Song of Solomon discounted by Christianity as love for the Church, does the Bible speak of sexual love.  (Much of the early Greek versions use eros, but in English it just comes out as “love.”)  This is the un-honed side of the sword!  For once we bring our focused, sacred, unconditional love into the bedroom, the mutual love of, for and from our wives becomes the most powerful weapon on the face of the earth!  We become great warriors, but lousy soldiers.  We intuitively know we are not fighting for God, Mom and apple pie, but to fill the coffers of the already rich.  Historically, there is big money in war and conquest and banks are the biggest winners on the blood of soldiers.

There is another side to this.  Even the Great Apes, when food runs out in their territory, will invade another ape’s territory to eat.  If they are successful, they may kill the alpha male and possibly eat him.  We need warriors to protect us from invasion, as white cells protect the body.

Now, this implies only that men have had their egos fed for thousands of years regarding their superiority and as superior beings what their duty is: to be cannon fodder.  Women are to be “protected” so they may bear future soldiers or future wives.  Perhaps it is time we protect women from this role into which they have been gently forced.  A lot of these fantastic creatures already know that something is wrong here, but don’t know exactly what.  Maybe this will help.

The leaders to whom we acquiesce authority perpetuate the myths, believed by both men and women.  Granted, we as humans are all different.  But to one degree or another, we are united by an attitude that sex is “bad,” “dirty” or “evil.”  Some carry it to laughable extremes, and others will restrict certain types of behavior as “bad.”  “Promiscuity is bad because it spreads disease.”  Although this is centuries old, it may have a deeper meaning.  Promiscuity may keep us from maintaining the focus of love on our primary beloved and when we lose focus, we may lose the power.

More importantly around the world, whether in an African refugee camp, or on Park Avenue, just about everybody has sex!  Even Republicans have sex!  This is a fact that unites us all.  When we shift our attitudes from sexual pleasure to sexual love, our lives and our pleasure will be enhanced.  This does not condemn sex for pleasure.  (That would be too hypocritical even for me!)  But only suggests you add love into the mix.  Pleasure is a part of love, even without sex.  But when we can fully give of ourselves to one another and with one another of the love that we are, we will have a much different world: a better world.  One “they” do not want.

Normal, Uncommon Sexual Responses.

August 16, 2011

To write about sexual love, I had to learn a little about sex. Actually, like most of us, I put the cart before the horse. I was more interested in sex and then had my epiphany on love. I’m a guy. Waddaya expect? First, love is not necessary to engender any sexual response! Just because it’s sex, doesn’t mean it’s love. One woman confided in me, she had an orgasm while being raped! Most guys will tell you they have orgasms with women they don’t even know, or like or love. If you pinch yourself on the arm, the response is pain. A response is a response is a response. However, guys will also tell you their response is so much better, even when they only think they are in love.

Most sexual responses are pleasurable. (The Kundalini can be excruciatingly painful.) Therefore we think that sex is about pleasure, and for most of us, it is. But, when we think of sex as a mechanism for transmitting love, it can be ecstatic, where pleasure is a by-product or side effect, and orgasm becomes a non-event! We must crawl before we walk and run before we fly. These responses are simply presented as a matter for your awareness and acceptance. Let’s look at some of the pleasurable responses for which our bodies have the capacity, but we don’t fully enjoy. There are probably many more.

Orgasm

Uncommon? Most guys don’t have a bit of problem with this one. But, according to a study related by Dr. Laura Berman, about 50% of the sexually active women in this country have never experienced an orgasm. This would indicate it is an uncommon experience.

So what is an orgasm? Freud said there were two kinds: clitoral and vaginal. We’ll see how full of crap he was in a minute. Bioenergetics also claims two kinds: climax – involuntary muscle contractions in the genitalia, and orgasm – involuntary muscle contractions all over the body. First, “climax” is a lousy word because it implies “the end” when it may be just the beginning. But, yes, there are involuntary muscle contractions associated with orgasm.

To see how many kinds there are, we need to look at our sexual anatomy. Both men and women have three major nerve pathways from the genitalia to the spinal column: pudendal, pelvic and hypogastric. Women have an additional pathway, the vagus nerve pathway, connected to the cervix and uterus, wandering around her body and directly connecting to the brain. If we think of sex as “the mental and/or physical stimulation of nerve endings, creating electrochemical energy, resulting in pleasurable sensations in the genitalia and other sexual responses,” then orgasm is a function of nerve stimulation. Partially.

With women having four major pathways, we could say there are 24 possible combinations of stimulation (Factoral 4 = 24) therefore 24 different kinds of orgasm. Men, with three major pathways then have the possibility of six. But there are 14 different structures and sensitive areas in the female genitalia (that we know of today) connected to these pathways, and 7 in the male genitalia. If we took all the possible numerical combinations for women, it would be about ½ billion different kinds of orgasm. It is pretty silly to argue about it and our belief systems control our responses anyway. So, let’s just say there are little ones and big ones.

Multiple and Sequential Orgasms

Male orgasm is generally associated with ejaculation. Not always! Men may experience a series of pleasurable vibrations in the penis without losing rigidity or ejaculate! A better description would be “penis buzzing.” This may occur in 5 to 10 second bursts, or longer, during intercourse. It may also occur after orgasm, when flaccid, lasting from a few minutes to a few hours. The latter can be quite disconcerting.

Masters and Johnson described “four phases” of the sexual process, the last, “refractory phase,” following orgasm. Men lose tumescence and it takes from a few minutes to a few hours to regain it. (It doesn’t have to be a stiffie. Workable chubbies also do the job.) Women more easily may have multiple orgasms than men, but we aren’t out of the running! As long as he keeps going, she may keep coming!

The difference between multiple and sequential orgasms is simply the time interval between orgasms. If a man stops after orgasm, without “after-play,” then the woman’s body also goes through a refractory period and we have to start all over.

Ejaculatory Orgasms

Both men and women have a prostate gland, the source of ejaculate. The male prostate is neatly snuggled up against the bladder, encased in the prostatic capsule. The female prostate is a collection of ducts and glands ranging from around 30 to over 100, scattered along the urethra, generally in Caucasian women, bunched up toward the front (opening) of the urethra.

Fig. 1.  The female Prostate with urethral opening to right
Fig. 1. Female prostate with opening of urethra to right.

Of the 50% of sexually active women who have orgasms, only 10 to 40% (depending on which study you read) will ejaculate. There are indications in Rwanda, “all” the women ejaculate. Although a very small portion of those that do not ejaculate may have medical problems preventing it, it is suggested most of the preventative mechanism is in our minds. In the 1600’s in France, women stopped ejaculating as a birth control mechanism. It didn’t work. (See The Bible and Female Ejaculatory Orgasms.) Since the ejaculatory orgasm is about ten times more pleasurable than non-ejaculatory orgasms, that was quite a sacrifice! The Church stopped promoting female ejaculation as a mechanism for conception after 1784, when artificial insemination was proven. It was too much fun for the ladies.

Orgasmic Vaginal Discharge (OVD)

Although this usually also occurs with orgasm, when it occurs, it may also occur in combination with female ejaculation. The prostate gland will secrete, or ejaculate, about 5 to 10 cc’s of prostatic fluid through the urethra. OVD is a copious flow through the vagina of unknown origin and composition. There is no science on this. Many scientists are still arguing over whether or not women can ejaculate. Let them argue. Women will still ejaculate.

There is a technique in Tantric sex for increasing orgasmic flow called, Amitra. I do not know if this pertains to ejaculation or OVD. Not all women exhibit this. The ones who have confided in me say this is just what they do when they have orgasms, and it has been that way since the first one.

Orgasmic Bioluminescence

This is when one or both parties glow (actually emit photons) on orgasm. A shamanic breathing ritual, called “Dragons Fire/Breath,” produces a glow in the practitioner. It is possible that during the orgasmic plateau phase of intercourse, the partner’s breathing mimics this practice, producing the glowing results. Also, it is possibly a function of excess Adenosine Tri Phosphate (ATP) that changes into photons, just like in fireflies.

Transcendent Sex

This will take a blog by itself! Briefly, it is an altered state of consciousness created by altered brain chemistry. There are many disciplines to train the mind and body for this experience, but sometimes, it just happens. Dr. Jenny Wade’s book, Transcendent Sex, lists most of these forms along with the following observations:

· Sexual techniques and mechanics have no bearing on transcendence.
· Transcendence may occur between couples without sexual congress.
· Orgasm is not a causal factor. It may occur without, before during or after orgasm, and orgasm becomes a non-event.
· Sexual abuse is not a causal factor.
· Transcendence may occur in the later years of a marriage or on a one-night stand.
· It “transcends” religious beliefs and sexual orientation.
· It is not a guarantee of “true love,” nor should it be a goal in sexual love. It is just something that happens, sometimes.

Our “transformation” or growth in consciousness from sexual love may also be a function of altered brain chemistry. Transcendence” may be thought of as temporary, where Transformation is more or less permanent. Physical work, or work outs at a gym, grow our muscles. Education (may?) grow our brains (or brainwash us). Love grows our consciousness and sexual love beats th’ hell out of sitting cross-legged on a mountain top for 15 or 20 years. This will be continued in another blog.

Guys, why should we grow our consciousness? Most of the 500 wealthiest men in America interviewed by Napoleon Hill for his book, Think and Grow Rich, mentioned sexual love as the mechanism that transformed them, giving them access to infinite intelligence and enabling them to be millionaires. Edward Leedskalnin, the guy with a 4th grade education, built Coral Castle, now in Homestead, Florida, out of limestone blocks weighing 14 tons, having the construction precision that matches the Pyramids and Machu Picchu! His love was unrequited! Yes, there are advantages to love.
