Patches of sunlight play on a carpet of gold and brown. Green and gold are reflected in nearby puddles. Wind rustles the branch's dying leaves. A dog, with tinkling bell, slaps through the puddles, disturbing each still reflection. At the path's end sunlight shines on a small tree's golden leaves as they rustle in another billowing blow.
Your Healing From Fascination With Sex
In modern western society we are fascinated by images of gold, glitz and glamour. Sexual images are portrayed everywhere. The marketers, advertisers and ratings managers know we are fascinated with sex and use this fascination to attract our attention. We are fascinated by sexual images on billboards, newspapers, magazines, cinema and television. These media managers lead us around like poodles. They know we are suckers for a good sexual image. These images deface our civilization.
At a personal level our fascination with sex can lead us into having the wrong motives for relationships and lead to relationships that are not nurturing. Such relationships can be a source of conflict and misunderstanding between the sexes.
I too have exhibited inappropriate sexual behaviour. I had a robust sexual drive that sometimes led me to approach women in inappropriate circumstances. I remember once I showed a keen interest in three different women who were members of a club I belonged to. One evening I was sitting quietly at home when I received a call from the chairman of the club. He wanted to meet me but would not say why. The next day the chairman knocked at my door. I opened it to find two other leading members of the club in attendance. I was surprised and invited them in for tea. After some minor chit chat the chairman broke the news. Three women in the club had complained about my inappropriate level of interest in them. I was shocked. I was not aware I had been behaving insensitively. I didn't like to think my behaviour towards these women was inappropriate. I was deeply embarrassed.
I offered to write a letter to each of the three women. In the letter I apologised for my inappropriate behaviour, reassured them that it would not happen again and thanked them for drawing my insensitive behaviour to my attention so that I could address it. All three women accepted my apology and assurances. I then had to learn to forgive myself for behaving insensitively, which I did by vowing to behave much more sensitively in the future.
I was no more immune from behaving insensitively due to my sex drive than anyone else. Inappropriate behaviour in this regard, has been found at every level of society from Presidents to parking attendants.
Today I have no problems behaving appropriately with women and have many female friends. In the course of time, expressing love by listening to my calling and following my potential led to a transformation experience that made peace with my sexuality. I am no longer fascinated by attempts to win my attention through revealing images in advertising or films. Although I appreciate womans' physical beauty, I choose to befriend women only because I am interested in their spirit and soul. I experience an inner innocence and enjoy the freedom that comes from that.
With this transformation has come a great increase in my level of inner peace. My mind is quieter because it is no longer affected by sexual longing. Because my mind is quieter I am much more aware of the beauty of nature. I notice fairy trees and play with laughing children.
