The Secret History of Western Sexual Mysticism: Sacred Practices and Spiritual Marriage by Arthur Versluis

For those of you interested in Tantra, Thelema, Kareeza and other practices using sexual union as a portal, I recommend this highly. It is relatively short but very insightful study of western sexual mysticism from antiquity to contemporary time. Despite the necessary scholarship, it is an easy read.Versluis provides the reader with a clear understanding of the continuing tradition of sexual mysticism that is seen in Eleusinian mysteries through Gnostics, early Christianity, Cathars, Courtly…See More

"The dream is quite interesting. But to begin to explore and amplify it would be very important to know your perception of Aleister Crowley, how you view India, especially if you have done Indian type practices - tantra, yoga, etc. You left this a…"

The Tantric Alchemist - Peter Leyenda

This is a fascinating book for those interested in Alchemy and Tantra. Leyenda makes the case that the famous Alchemist Thomas Vaughan and his wife Rebecca engaged in spiritual practices that clearly appear to be 'tantric' but, of course, Vaughan had no connection or influence to/from that tradition. It would appear he and his wife discovered them through their ardent love for each other.This also suggest something I have felt for a long time: that the Rosarium Philosophorum was never just…See More

There Is An Immensity In Me

There is an immensity in me

It is huge, wide, deep and fullI

It is so grand, awesome

That when it seizes me

My spine shakes and trembles.

It is a wonder, it is full of bliss, has

           endless beauty

It lights the way.

It makes me rich, silly with joy

Spontaneous, giddy

The immensity in me.

It was there at my birth

There when I started school,

It was there on the ball fields of my youth

Winning or losing at some game

There in classrooms, learning catechisms, even in conflicts

In the warmest summers and rain-filled winters,

In the grace off springs and the golden light of falls

There even in my darkest desperate moments,

               filled with shame and doubt.

That immensity in me

Would not fail me,

Would not release me,

Held tight its grip.

 The immensity is the gift of poesy, gift of vision

Gift of caring and compassion

It knows no beginning,

Will have no end.

There is immensity in you

It is an overwhelming fountain

         gushing joy

That cleanses and transforms

And connects to the Holy People,

         the Great Ones

Whether you are Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Christian or

         of a religion so close and compelling it needs no

         books or titles.

This immensity was with you when you were born.

It cannot be other

No matter how you were born, where you were born,

          to whom or why

The immensity is you.

Ah, we have great gaps in the world, filled with hatreds

         and misunderstandings,  terrible woundings, horrible slaughters.

But the immensity is not shaken, does not shrink away

It claims us, drives us back into to life

To try again.

There is immensity in me –

It is greater and deeper and more wonderful

Than I can say.

That immensity in you is the same

Though different of race, speech, nation, sex, age, color, character, talent

WE ARE NOT – WE ARE NOT

Not to the immensity in me

Not to the immensity in you

Not to the immensity.

Oh, the immensity!

Give Me A Love

GIVE ME A LOVE

 

Give me a love who will lie with me on green

amidst the silent sounds of forest, shadows veiling

and revealing, walls of trees, ceiling of azure sky,

Who will couple amidst the deer, lion, squirrels,

Along the river, in the clump, on the hill where

green is dominant mixed with a thousand shades of

brown.

 

Who will lie unashamed, naked, among the ancient…
