Truth Behind Celibacy
It’s been more than a year ago when I started feeling some mystical phenomena’s inside my body. It’s been more than a year since I quit job to find if there was something more to my robotic life.
In my hope to find the meaning of life to some deeper extent, I started travelling. Since I was born in India and India is considered land of mystics, I went to India to understand something as mystical as life.
While travelling in India, I met so many monks and sadhus. I was surprised that those monks have quit worldly pleasures in search of something mystical.
It was even more surprising to me when I came to know that those monks were forcing to be celibate in hope to get enlightenment.
I already realized that celibacy could never be forced. I realized that celibacy is not about having no sex but celibacy is all about overcoming desire of sex.
One who is filled with love is a celibate in my eyes. It does not matter if such person indulges in sexual activities or not.
One of the reasons I got spiritually awakened was since I never repressed any act in my life. Awakening is a pure result of freedom. No one in this universe could become aware of spiritual awakening by repressing natural act like sex.
After unlocking my own inborn wisdom, I realized that one who has overcome the desire of sex is only capable to perform sex out of love. One who performs sex out of love is really a celibate in my eyes
Celibacy is not about repression but freedom
I wanted to tell those monks that enlightenment is not a result of celibacy but celibacy could be a result of enlightenment. I wanted to explain them that the true definition of celibacy but I felt hopeless in unconditioning human mind.
Even though I never judge human since I love human imperfection so much, but somewhere in my heart I felt pity for those monks who were forcing to be celibate to attain something mystical in life.
I hope one-day humanity would understand the true meaning behind the teachings of enlightened people like Buddha.
I hope one-day humanity would understand that Buddha was pointing towards love but not misery. Surely one-day humanity would understand that Buddha was pointing towards freedom not repression.
