Lovemaking: Pathway to Truth, Harmony and Wholeness



We know . . . the self-scripts of conventional society. We are thus fragmented within ourselves and [often] in conflict. . . . In contrast to this, when people allow their false separation to dissolve, as is sometimes possible in music or lovemaking or sincere worship, a truer individuality emerges and a harmony between these individualities is possible. When one whole human being meets another whole human being, there is no antagonism. Even if there is difference, there is respect, because the wholeness of one is not in conflict with the wholeness of the other.

According to the testimony of the most mature human beings, we have the potential for knowing all of Being, all of Reality. We can know, embrace, and participate in this transpersonal reality. Furthermore, this whole reality is the electromagnetic field of love.
