Until we listen to the voice of the conscience we are slaves to a fractured way of thinking and we perceive ourselves split between body and spirit, between heart and mind.
If you ever wonder where the divine resides inside the human being probably you already know the answer – in the heart.
The human mind has never been seen as an inner sanctuary. And rightly so.
For only the human heart can be the reflection of the universal heart. But today the heart of most of us is kept behind bars. Its jailer is the mind, through the way we think. Drowned in the desire for pleasure, our mind determines us to sink in the mud of all the weaknesses, all addictions, all kinds of greed. The mind cannot be satisfied and it’s never fulfilled because it rummages only for plastic food.
But the heart claims true fulfillment, permanently attracting experiences that help it develop its capacity to unite with the Essence, with the light that Light Itself has planted within. The heart demands, and when the mind is educated, aided, trained to open up to a higher level of understanding life and humanity it is the conscience that decides.
But until we do this step towards transformation, the mind dominates and conditions us.
Until we listen to the voice of the conscience we are slaves to a fractured way of thinking and we perceive ourselves split between body and spirit, between heart and mind; we perceive ourselves split as humanity into men and women, whites and other races, in young and old, in the strong and the weak. This way of thinking makes us to no longer perceive either our inner unity or our unbreakable communion as part of the Whole.
Sexuality too is affected by this distortion. It is sick. And we are not referring to situations where traumas appear after any abuse or disease but to the overall situation – eroticism has been de-sacralized. It has become a carnal obsession, a chasing after pleasure and the unconscious consumption of our own being and of the other person that we are in a relationship with.
The hasty way of making love, the race against time for a poor orgasm, throttled by ejaculation keeps the male and the female captive in the physiological, sparingly portions them every experience, dramatically limiting them.
And because sexuality is troubled today, even in the couples that experience the feeling of love, women are unfulfilled. Even in the most intense love relationships, women feel that they lack something, that they cannot achieve their real potential, cannot fulfill their true mission. They feel an indescribable longing for a Higher Reality; they are consumed with a thirst for the Infinite that many of them finally give up in resignation.
Is there any solution?
There is however a solution – the leap from carnal sexuality, which only consumes (and consumes itself) to the divine eroticism and sacred love that connect us with our essence and the essence of the world – the heart. Restored as a mystical enthusiasm, eroticism finds again its elevating power and thus can lead to a state of spiritual communion with the sacred essence of the beloved being and of the entire universe.
Tantric art can trigger and sustain this leap that normal eroticism needs in order to be healed. Through transfiguration and sublimation Tantric Art can become a constant presence in our lives.
How? By savoring Tantric artworks – dance, paintings, photographs, movies, music, sculpture, performances, poetry. Discovering and cultivating our own talent in one of the fields of art creating according to the tantric vision. But the most important and suitable for anyone who wants to open their awareness to the infinite is to use the path of Tantra to transform ourselves from consumers into creators of our own lives.
For Tantric Art is primarily the art of living – to be present in all the acts of our daily lives, to contemplate all that exists beneath the surface, to live the voluptuousness that is beyond the senses.
This is the art that directs the mind to beauty and divine truth, the art that awakens the soul and guides us towards fulfilling our true mission in the Planet Earth: the union with the Divine.
