Sample text

Was aber noch wichtiger ist: Die Qualität der Sekrete selbst wird ebenfalls erhöht. Auf den höheren Stufen dieser Praktik entwickeln die Hormone dann höchst außergewöhnliche Eigenschaften. Die Methode des Sexual-Kung Fu erzeugt und bewahrt mehr Nerven und Hormonenergie, als für das normale Funktionieren des Organismus nötig ist. Diese überschüssige Vitalität kann kanalisiert werden, um den Körper zu starken und die geistigen und spirituellen Fähigkeiten zu steigern. Wenn sich die Liebenden umarmen, entstehen Wirbel von subtilen Yin- und Yang-Energien vom Sexualbereich bis hinauf zum Kopf, wo sie schließlich die ganze Zeit verbleiben.

Die Energie einer guten, warmen Mahlzeit leichter aufnehmen als die Energie der Sonne am Strand. Die Sonnenenergie ist zu «roh» und mächtig, um vom Körper ohne weiteres «verdaut» zu werden. Nimmt man zuviel Sonnenlicht auf, kommt es zu schweren Verbrennungen. Eine Mahlzeit kann der Körper dagegen leicht verarbeiten und für lange Zeit seine Antriebskraft aus den verdauten Kalorien und Nährstoffen gewinnen. Der Unterschied zwischen Hunger und sexueller Begierde Worin liegt der energetische Unterschied zwischen Nahrung und Sex, nach denen es unseren Körper so sehr verlangt?

Ist die Sexualenergie erst einmal bewahrt und emporgeleitet worden, so kann der partnerlose Mann mit Hilfe der Meditation die männlichen und weiblichen Pole, die in jedem männlichen Körper existieren, in ein Gleichgewicht bringen. Bei der Praktik der «Zweifachen Höherentwicklung» gleicht das Paar dieses Energiefeld aus, indem beide ihre feinstofflichen Energien miteinander teilen und kreisen lassen. Dadurch wird die Liebesbeziehung zum Ausgangspunkt der Transformation sexueller Anziehung in persönliche Liebe und schließlich in spirituelles Bewußtsein und Dienen.
