Nothing is created without a purpose and sexual energy is not an exception.
However, it has been causing so much damage every day in and around us.
As a believer, when I believe that everything has a purpose, I also believe that if a purposeful creation produces negative outcomes, it is because of its misuse or overuse or ignorance over its proper use. Many of us are good at misusing things because we often act on instincts rather than thoughtful engagement or going to the root/depth.
What is the good use of sexual energy? Use within the marriage, for procreation, for (legitimate/appropriate) pleasure and relieving physical and emotional stress? All sounds great but is that all ‘sexual energy’ is for? Sex is an inevitable part of a healthy marriage however that is not the whole purpose, the sexual energy should be used for.
Sexual energy is a great force in our body and mind. Are we not responsible to use it for its intended purpose? Apart from the use for our own selves, shouldn’t we also channel this gifted energy toward more meaningful and greater tasks ahead of us?
In other words, when over indulgence or suppression of the energy is not all productive, shouldn’t we redirect this energy to our work, writing, serving, creative thinking so on and so forth? And can we?
We must seek to find out ourselves, because as humans, seeking and finding is an obligation, not an option.
P.S. For further understanding on the topic read Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think and Grow Rich’. Don’t worry, the book is not all about financial richness. Chapter – The Mystery of Sex.
