Spiritual sex is playful sex.
Because spirituality is about lightness, joy, relishing the spice of life. Our spirits love to play.
You can tell a truly spiritual person because they are light, they smile, they feel the lightness of being, the joy of existence.
The Hindu term ‘leela’ reflects this concept, that life is play. Without attachment and heaviness we can be playful.
It’s not just eastern traditions that recognise it, many of our great Western thinkers discovered the same thing:
"We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."
George Bernard Shaw
"The true object of all human life is play."
G. K. Chesterton
“The most evident token and apparent sign of true wisdom is a constant and unrestrained rejoicing.” Montaigne
And to quote me: “Sex is playtime for grown-ups!”
We’ve been blessed with bodies that experience pleasure, minds that are creative and spirits that love to play. Life is meant to be the combination of all three, and sex, the source of life, the base of life, is most definitely all three.
