Yoga, Sex, Masturbation and Spiritual Growth – Part IV (concluded)

Acharya

||Be the Master of your Energies||

Beloved Souls,

By explaining all this theoretical part of energy dynamics associated with  masturbation I don’t wish to scare you. If it can help you become little more aware in experiencing and sensing your energy currents and chakra functions in light of this knowledge it would definitely lead you towards change. One must remember that though experimentation with awareness and objective observation are ways to get rid of any unwanted trait but if you lack sensitivity, energy-awareness and your senses are not developed enough you might altogether miss the learning from your experiments and observations. It is important that you learn to sense the subtle energy currents in your body before you contemplate expanding your domain of experiencing. Also you should always engage holy powers of Masters in your experimentation. That is easy if you have been taught about it. If not that then also do not worry. There is also a faculty in you which guides you continuously. It is interested in your growth. I call this faculty of yours – The inner Master. The more you empower your inner master He would be willing to help and shall engage in supervision of your diversions and distractions. He will be ready to show you the way which is most suitable to you and leads towards light. In addition to the above you also need to augment your inner strength to hold on to your decisions and keep your resolutions. That is important because the voice of inner master is very feeble and it goes unheard most of the times. Your inner Master survives on the energy generated by ‘resolutions you keep’. So NEVER make unrealistic resolution however there is no room for lukewarm approach and underestimation of your own strength. Just stay attentive to those inner callings and instructions which come from Him. But I know your current state of mind doesn’t allow you to feel that and therefore I would try helping you here. There are many simple things you can do to start with. These simple changes would make you capable of listening to His voice. In  Tattva Shakti Vigyaan we show you how hungry all your bodies are but we also show that it is your habit pattern which makes them so and your inner layers thus engage in absorbing everything – even if that is garbage. You can not stop feeding it, but continuous anxiety to feed on something or the other reduces your self–control and you are not able to stay alert, in control when temptations trigger a series of subconscious avalanche in your mind-body complex. So what do you do?

Start with little things. Watch out if the radio in your car and the television in your home is always on, just filling up the silence? Turn them off. Learn to appreciate contemplative silence sometimes.

Do you eat slowly or attack the food and continue until you feel stuffed? Control that urge. Learn to have your food in steps.

Are you always chewing, munching and drinking coffee, tea or cold drinks? Stop for a moment! Think if you could do without these for next 4 hours. In these 4 hours chant the mantra “Om Aing Hum” to de-tox yourself.  Appreciate hunger instead (if you can).

Today’s generation is “Always ON(line) Generation”. Are you also one of them who are carrying their mobile device with them; chatting, texting, constantly alert for messages, listening to songs, or playing video games? If so, better specify a time for it all and if your professional commitments don’t allow you to do so fix a timeslot for yourself when you switch such gadgets off or decide NOT respond to anything, come what may. Turn a blind eye towards your Blackberry or i-Phone at least an hour a day. Do not cheat yourself by deciding to put these off just when you sleep pretending to stay away for 7 to 8 long hours. It is done best when you make it happen during normal activity hours. Incoming calls and messages can wait. Please understand games and secular music steal time away from you and also clutter your being and if your goal is to grow spiritually you must have to have some time for yourself. This simple resolution can take you a long way.

Learn to express your anger – do not suppress it. Most often than not the underlying psychological motive for masturbation is release of anger or frustration (for normal persons) and release of energy for people who engage in energy heightening activities like breathing exercises, gym etc.  I am asking you to learn to express your anger because when at a later stage, you will stop masturbating, the anger will increase and that will surface on every trigger. It will be extremely necessary to deal with anger in a healthy manner, or else you will find it “leaking out” on people you want to hurt the least.

Masturbation is detrimental to spiritual growth for the reasons it takes away your sanity. You engage in negative “Manasik Karma” during the act. Although it is physically a singular act yet it is not. Sexual fantasies are nothing but hidden intentions of the a repressed rapist in you. Have heart, don’t hurt those poor girls and women who have no power to stop your deeds in your fantasies. Thinking pattern of a spiritual seeker is extremely important so do something (even in your imagination) which you can admit to yourself in a respectful manner.

Remember to have realistic goals for yourself and learn to appreciate your solitude because when you are feeling deprived, ineffectual, weary, unrecognized, or alone a self-driven orgasm or ejaculation just feels right. So learn to appreciate small happy moments and achievements as that will keep you off your temptations.

Watch your tendencies. Do you prefer a seat in a restaurant where from you can have better view of people around – especially good looking opposite sexes? Try otherwise and do not swing your eyes around to see what you would have missed otherwise.

Last but most important point for men– Do not allow your eyes to slip below the neckline of a female. Be attentive to your thirst when you are watching them from behind. That is not a very decent habit anyways. This self imposed restriction would do wonders in increasing your ability to sense energy currents at a later stage. Most of the males fail to sense and appreciate energy currents and thus fail in choosing right life-partner for themselves.

Do NOT be lured by those online Tantra Teachers or books.  Tantra is not a game to be played by sexual people in search of spiritual experience. It is dance of spiritual (to the core) with clear intentions of finding inner source of joy and bliss. As such this is not as simple as mostly depicted. Various Yogic Kriyas, a tough discipline is to be observed before that. Many astral channels are to be created between Bhirava and Bhairavi before they can practice it together. All that preparation is done alone. Also finding a compatible partner whose chakras pulsate in the same frequency as yours is so very crucial or else all Tantra Practices would reduce to suction of mutual energies and nothing worthwhile can be achieved except experiencing “sex of a different kind”.  It is only with that surrender and commitment and all the preparation, emotional and spiritual bonding gets dominant. Only then the energy revolves in circulatory path (in the shape of 8). Keep in mind that Tantra Partners are most committed partners. Once a Bhairavi of yours – Always a Bhairavi and viceversa. There is no returning back. In fact the most loving couples can not match that kind of mental attitude. If all the preconditions are not met it would equal to prostitution or forced sex which is not capable of generating this kind of energy dynamics.

One last suggestion for you – getting stronger in your resolve and preserving energies for spiritual attainment shall empower you to express love fearlessly in all ways to all people in all circumstances but do not be discouraged or disturbed if you are misunderstood. Gradually everything will fall in its right place.

  1. I have not come across such elaborate explnation on this sexual practice. It is very need of society to understand WHYs of DONTs and Master AD, you have done a great favour by writing on this subject about which people feel shy to talk especially girls. Thank you for this eye opener. I am eagerly waiting for your words on Gita.

    Regards

  2. hello sir,
    My master is sadhguru jaggi vasudev.
    I dont know anything about you. I got this link somewhere and it is wonderful and has wonderful explaination.

  3. Dear Acharyaji,
    I am a spiritual seeker. I have been a part of various cults to seek the “Truth”. Divine Life, AOL, Sahaj Yoga, Landmark Forum, etc to name a fewo.
    I practice breathing exercises which induces energy inside me. After some time, I have to resort to masturbation to get relief from these energies else it doesnt allow me to focus anywhere. I feel guilty & energyless after the act but I do not find any way either.

    I found your articles on masturbation & spirituality very useful. I request you to please guide me on the following –

    If I do not want to engage into masturbation & want my energies not to trouble me, what is the way out ?
    Please help.

    I bow to the divine in you…

  4. sadly my ego wants my thank u to stand out from all others and (aware but as u see not yet resolved)but although im aware of my path and have spent many wonderful moments on it my lack of consistant focus on my true beliefs that has always been my downfall.i thank u for conferming my feelings of disrupted energy through mistreating my sexual feelings,although im male,my third eye has got to the point of pain due to my unresponsible actions.time for a new awakening(much love and many thanks master)

  5. Dear beloved external Guru,

    There is a truth to what the person Abhi had mentioned about energy levels and being at a heightened level and needing some sort of grounding practice aside from masturbation. As a male, myself, I recognize the currents of chi building up within and it can be explosive and there is some sort of need for grounding. Do you have any suggestions for grounding, energy balancing, and staying in that depth of connection with the divine while being “in the world but not of the world” ? Meditation, of course helps, as does chanting, and being out in nature. Sometimes, the awareness is not there enough to capture the urges and thus masturbation results. I do find at this stage of my path I do not feel guilty about masturbation, as it happens rarely–but ever so does happen, and I channel this energy into the divine of my being and align with the love of the ever present source god energy. However, I do feel the leak, so to speak, in my energy reserve and I find I have to nurse my root chakra system for imbalances for a couple days. Do you have any advice, tips, tricks that would be enlightening for this generation? Much love and peace to you dear beloved spark of the divine ray.

    +Shanti
