Scientific Chastity

“Love is felt in the depths of the heart. It is a delicious personal experience, it is a fire that consumes, it is divine wine, a delight to those who drink it. A simple perfumed handkerchief, a letter, a flower, causes tremendous intimate. Inquietudes in the depths of the Soul, exotic ecstasy, ineffable voluptuousness.”
-Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony

In order to understand scientific chastity we must always remember love, reflect on love, give and receive love. The sexual energy is the profound force of divine love, incarnate deep within our sexual organs. This generative force, impelled by the hormones (hormones from the Greek “to move forward, to impel”) has the intelligence that creates from two cells a new human life.

Upright Sexuality

The sexual force is magnetism, intelligence, love. It has the power to regenerate us by flooding our system with atoms of light, or to degenerate us by wasting and abusing our divine sexual force. Scientific chastity then is sexual purity, sexual fidelity, and sexual honor. The Gnostic teachings of Samael Aun Weor champion upright sexuality, which is transmutation and sublimation of the sexual force, and renunciation of the orgasm.

“Chastity is the flowering of man; and what are called Genius, Heroism, Holiness, and the like, are but various fruits which succeed it.”
-Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“Be sober, diligent, and chaste; avoid all wrath. In public or in secret never permit thou any evil; and above all else respect thyself.”

Chastity is the Strength of Love

Chastity is not synonymous with celibacy or abstinence. The sexual force is like the Sun, which can never be contained, and in fact to repress or suppress the sexual energy results in many different types of illnesses. The sexual force must first be acknowledged, honored, respected, understood, and worked with. There are many useful practices for transmuting the sexual force for an individual, including pranayama (breath work), mantras, runes, prayer, meditation, and exercise.

These same practice apply to couples, where the transmutation and prayer becomes the work of sexual alchemy.

“Sacred dances, the naked dance, the ardent kiss, the sexual connection of the Eleusian Mysteries made men into Gods. Then it would not have occurred to anybody to think of indecencies, but only of holy and profoundly religious things. The sacred dances are as ancient as the world and have their origin in the dawn of life on earth. The Sufi dances and the Whirling Dervishes are absolutely marvelous. To speak the Word of Gold, music must awaken in the human organism.”
-Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony

Spiritualizing the Sexual Energy

It is with scientific chastity that all things spiritual become possible: the liberation of our consciousness from the animal ego, the awakening and rising of the Divine Mother Kundalini within our spine, the illumination of the internal Tree of Life (the same as our internal Being), traversing of the Initiatic path, healing of the chakras- the organs of our psychology.

The reversal of the sexual energy within us begins the process of regeneration, and the true psychological revolution to interiorize and grow every closer to our inner Being, so that divinity can be present and active in this physical world.
