The

Sex and Sacrament

Project

a book series

"in my flesh shall I see (love) God" Job 19:26

The model represents the universal nature of God reflected in man, universally. Here, all good is universal. It unfolds increasingly as we reach beyond the fence of private isolation. It comes to light in its being discovered universally, as widely as can be; as widely as its model says it is.

All this renders the truth about the universal nature of good rather scary, especially when it comes to expressions of it in the form of love and sex. However, the grand challenge opens the horizon to explorations, as I have done in my novels. I have selected some stories from the novels that are focused on the theme sex and sacrament, presented here in the form of separate books.


 

The Son of God

Was Jesus, born by a virgin, the personal Son of God?
Or was he born sexually, conceived in universal love that obsoletes penetration?

The book presents an alternate history of Jesus in the form of a science exploration. The very name, 'Son of God,' appears to have its roots in the dynamics of the Principle of Universal Love, expressed in the fullest in Mother's academy.

Impotence and Power

When the soul is either starved, or free, we experience the results: impotence, or power. But can we choose the direction in which we go? Both, impotence and power lay before us in far too many ways that are are shaped by circumstances and conventions.

Self-Love and the Golden Hijab

Is self-isolation bliss? Is it love? Does it provide fulfillment? Does it provide security from the pains of in love and in sex. Self-isolation may appear to be convenient, a welcome escape from living, and even promise security, but is the result big enough to meet the aspirations and the divine standard for good?

Erica's Flower Garden

Living in a garden of a vast profusion
of colors and shapes? What a joy!
But being bound to live blind to all, but one single flower?

What a paradox!

Helen a Healer

A person who loves is also a healer.
If so, shouldn't we then love more and more extensively?

Shouldn't we love more universally as does God?
 Should there be limits to this love?
Or should love become bottled up and be private and small?

Brilliance of a Night

Love may be called an invitation to heaven.

 What happens when sex in universal love honours the Decalogue? It would take a leap of science to get us there, to open the portal to a new world. A leap of faith would be far too small to qualify.

Gem of the Universe

What is greater?

The the stark beauty in the black of infinite space?
Or a human being, richly alive in our wonderful, complex, and challenging world?
(from my only SciFi novel)

The Sound of a Bird Woke Me

A nuclear weapons accident overturns established conventions, it also liberates friendships, marriage, love, sex.

Between Ice and Spirit

When science and politics are perverted and become murderers, the light of the soul - love, sex, music - becomes our refuge and the beauty in our living.

Anton of Grace

A promising love with Antonovna (Anton for short) is blocked by fear of sex, rape in the past, and brutalities in politics, but grows to become a light for the future

Goodness of Living

Love, sex, and marriage should be placed on the recognition that we are all children of a single universal humanity with a common human soul, and are in fact, thereby more naturally married to one another than a priest would sanctify. But can we reach that far? Can we meet the challenges. It seems we can.

Shared Roses

My entire novel, Roses at Dawn in an Ice Age World, of the 12-part series of novels The Lodging for the Rose, qualifies for the Sex and Sacrament Project, because of its unique focus on the theme of sex and the sacrament, which unfolds in three different dimension. In resulting context, the title, Shared Roses, for the story comes to mind that the story develops towards.

The novel is challenging. Freedom in loving is not easily won, but when the breakthrough is made, a new world comes to light. The story is extremely challenging fiction.
Yes, universal love is challenging, but it is the divine way.

I (God) will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh Acts 2:17
God was (is) manifest in the flesh (St. Paul) I Timothy 3:16

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.... this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. (I John 3:1,11)


Divine (universal) LOVE is my shepherd; I shall not want.
LOVE maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
LOVE leadeth me beside the still waters.
LOVE restoreth my soul [spiritual sense]:
LOVE leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
(Re. Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with key to the Sciptures p.578)
 

Love and sex, like wealth and power, are generally thought of in society as aspects of the private domain like personal possessions. However, with good being God's universal expression, we have a higher scientific standard to work from, which we may aim to pull our world up to, and then celebrate it for what it is: a divine creation.

As we do so and celebrate the divine - and this conscientiously and honestly with ourselves - we invariably find that in the resulting sacrament with the divinity of all that is good, we are on the mark. This means that we see good as it is: universal in design.

In the Universal design:
the term Christ
signifies the Principle of Universal Love;
the term Mother
signifies the spiritual catalyst for Love that turns loving into good;
the term Church, in turn, signifies the institution within that deploys the substance of good for the healing of the world.

What flows out from this is evidently 'bigger' and 'grander,' than the sum of its parts.

Of course, that's challenging, isn't it? Seeing sex as a part of the fullness of God's creation can become a ponderous issue, especially when the mental scene is encumbered with small-minded notions, stressful situations, and circumstances that "try man's soul." Nevertheless, the truth of universal good remains the truth, and it remains to be experienced.

Yea,
though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for LOVE is with me; LOVE's rod and LOVE's staff they comfort me.
LOVE prepareth a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
LOVE anointeth my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house [the consciousness] of LOVE for ever.
 
  
(Continued from above: 23 rd Psalm with LOVE substituted for LORD)

Since the sexual scene is wide in scope, I have selected a number of different stories from my novels that together cover a wide diversity of the dimensions of the union of men and women in the sacrament with the divine. I present the stories here for purposes of explorations, both in the form of printed books and of free PDF e-books.
