Sexual Self-Transcendence

The profound spiritual urges behind masculine and feminine sexuality

Love of Souls by Andrew Gonzalez
Spiral Genesis by Mark Henson. The best artistic depiction of the experience we had, which indicates it’s a vision that other lovers have shared.

The above is a true recounting of the most profound spiritual experience I have ever had — a spontaneous mystical experience caused by sex with my soulmate and life partner.

Cosmic Sex by Lady Reverie— an artwork I made inspired by our experience
Ardhanarishvara (the merged being of combined Shiva and Shakti)

“To be is to be perceived, and so to know thyself is only possible through the eyes of the other” — Cloud Atlas

Masculine: the urge to merge with, to be consumed by and absorbed by, to transcend the boundaries of the self by becoming part of another person

Feminine: the urge to be merged with, to consume and absorb, to transcend the boundaries of the self by having another become part of you

“The yin-yang principle is not, therefore, what we would ordinarily call a dualism, but rather an explicit duality expressing an implicit unity.” — Alan Watts

Divine Ecstasy— another of my artworks

“And Shiva went on making love, and on and on and on (…) He was not there, Devi (Shakti) was not there — the man and woman have completely merged into each other. Some unity has happened, a great synthesis, a great orchestra of energies.” — Secrets of Yoga, Osho
