I have got a good audience to this topic. I realized that when I looked at the statistics for this blog via Google analytics.
I was pondering over the reasons why people wanted to read about sublimation and it comes to my mind that worldwide there is an increased desire to curb lust. Lust has been man’s enemy since ages. Even in the story of Adam and Eve its the lust which brings them down from heaven to earth. Semen is nothing but the universal power of creation. When it is wasted through our futile exercises we lose that energy and sublimation is the way to redirect that highly potent energy to a different path. The path could art, philosophy, sculpture, anything any topic in the world and when it is done it produces wonders. All the great men of this world have channelized that energy.
Here are some of the important points to remember.
1. Remove the idea that sex is evil. In India we never had the theme or philosophy that sex is evil. But also remember that anything that is more than what is required is as equal as poison. Its like the venom of the snake. When the venom gets injected into ones body it acts as poison and same venom is used to remove it becomes a life saving tool.
2. Accept the reality that sex is not something that can be controlled in some countable days. It takes long amount of practice and dedication to control that energy as its the universal creative energy.
3. If you are not able to avoid doing it, do it with full heart. Spirituality is not the place for people who are sad its the place of joy. So do anything with joy and in the days to come you will notice that it disappears from you.
4. The root cause of this is desire. Desire can be removed only through 2 ways. Fulfilling it or using knowledge and reason removing it. The latter is suitable for people who are used to the knowledge and reasoning capabilities. The former class of people need to fulfill the desire to remove it. You will notice that any desire that you have once its fulfilled it does not exist in the mind.
I will be posting more and continuing. Do post your comments and feedbacks !!!
