Illusion and Attachment’
We talked recently about dropping our masks. (1)
Our masks hide who we are. They confuse. They mislead. They obscure.
They’re illusion, one brick in the wall of Third Dimensionality.
Another brick in the wall is our cravings, our attachments, our addictions – the things that keep us rigidly tied to Third-Dimensional experience.
The Buddha said the source of our bondage is craving, aversion, and ignorance.
Attachments = Craving and aversion
Illusion = Ignorance
These rock-bottom sources of our bondage to the Third Dimension are what we need to dissolve.
Ascend is all the Buddha wanted us to do. The stream-enterer sees the goal. The arahant knows that success is possible. The Buddha achieves it – Fifth Dimensionality (and more). (2)
If we want to break free of our bonds, then I think we need to drop our masks and resolve our attachments. Resolution of the latter may not mean dropping them; it may mean redirecting or seeing through them, as I’d like to illustrate.
Orgasm as a Chief Attachment
I’m going to be unconventional in what I say next and I hope I’m sharing adult-to-adult, with us intent on seeing to the bottom of things.
I’m going to talk about one of our chief but taboo attachments or addictions: our attachment to sexuality – yes; but more our attachment to orgasm.
Why do we become attached? In my view, because orgasms offer us a taste of bliss.
I always suspected that that’s how God kept the human race procreating: By building bliss into orgasm.
I asked Archangel Michael a related question about the subject in a personal reading and his response confirmed that orgasm was what he called a taste of delight, a moment of bliss. (3)
The conventional wisdom for serious spiritual seekers is that they avoid sex. But for this generation of lightworkers building a new society, I think we’re meant to create new social and sexual patterns.
The Divine Mother has no such ideas like remaining celibate is valuable. After a relationship breakup a few years back, I wanted to be celibate. I also reasoned that if I were to be the source of the Gender Equality Project, it’d be better for everyone concerned if I was celibate. In a personal reading, the Divine Mother came in for the first ten minutes and spoke quite definitively:
Divine Mother: My beloved child, son of my heart, do you truly say to me as your Mother, who knows you, that you desire to be celibate? …
Let me speak to you. Your intention and the purity of your heart is wondrous. … I do not critique where the heart’s desire [lies].
The truth is the desire for celibacy. But I do not urge it where there is yet a higher (yes, I use that word), clearer, purer, balanced way of creating interaction [where] your very project, your organization, your relationships become the new pattern.
So for you to say, ‘I will engage in this beautiful mission because abuse is abhorrent. I will engage in the gender-equality work but I can only do so by being celibate because my masculinity is so outrageous and aggressive that I must declare celibacy’ is defeating the purpose. Do you understand what I say?
S: Yes, I do.
DM: I do not want you to deny yourself or to be lonely in any way. You are too precious for that. (3)
What she said to me, I think she says to all. No celibacy this lifetime. We are all too precious for that.
“A higher, clearer, purer, balanced way” than celibacy? That’s a challenging thought. What rishi, Zen master, monk would agree with this? We are in changed times for sure, times during which new models are needed.
Sex was meant to be enjoyed, modern-day masters tell us. It’s we who’ve burdened it with false concepts. Our Third-Dimensional view of sexuality has been all too often love-making without love, purely automatic.
It’s we who made it that way. It’s we who go through the motions, often seeking only what we want for ourselves (orgasm) and enough stimulation of our partner to keep them happy. Werner Erhard once described our love-making as two Volkswagens rubbing fenders.
It’s we who transferred onto sexuality our deluded and manipulative ways of being. The source of those ways lies partly with our society’s controllers and their media, but ultimately with us, as vasanas or core issues.
It’s time now to put the transformative love back into sexuality. In my view, that’s the new way, perhaps the only way. Without it, love-making remains sex – great if it brings orgasm; otherwise often a duty with us going through the motions. Eventually the draw of sex without love pales as we start to see some things.

(2) With the stream-enterer, the kundalini has reached the fourth chakra. The stream-enterer then sees the light of his or her buddha nature. With the arahant, the kundalini has reached the seventh chakra. The arahant sees the transcendental light beyond creation. With the Buddha, the kundalini has doubled back and permanently opened the heart. Gautama Buddha’s experience upon his mahasamadhi went much farther, I’m sure.
(3) On other occasions he’s told me that, this lifetime, I’m not to live in a cave. I’m to be fully human and have as complete a human experience as possible. That includes sexuality.I’d have to dig to find the exact words he used, but I think I have them correctly.
