In this episode of The Love Cast, we discuss a mature subject matter that might not be suitable for young ears. This episode deals with the topic of sexuality, and more specifically, sacred sexuality.
Most conversations about sex and sexuality usually come from one of two destructive and harmful extremes. One extreme views sex and sexuality from a shame based religious paradigm. This is rooted in the fallacious idea that base human nature and sexual desire is inherently evil, shameful, and is something to be repressed.
The other extreme takes a reactive and opposite approach to sex and sexuality by viewing it in a casual and non-sacred way.
In this episode of The Love Cast, I talk about why the prayers of so many of us go answered. This episode begins by exposing the religious fallacy of surrendering our intentions and desires at 'the cross' and why this concept is damaging to us psychologically. I also talk about the healthy concept of surrendering our attachments, however, and why intentions and attachments are not the same thing.
