Brilliance of a Night

It might also be called an invitation to heaven,
a sex story that honours the Mosaic Decalogue.

The great renaissance principle, the Principle of Universal Love, which has to some degree become the foundation of civilization, has never really been allowed into the social domain, to uplift it. Attempts have been made. They usually fail when sex enters the scene. It takes a trained scientist who lives at the leading edge of science to rigorously honor the demands of universal Principle in the face of the world's contrary social conventions of privatized love and the privatization of sex that is deemed the pinnacle of morality.

But do those kind of scientists exist that can respect universal principles above convention? In the story they do. The story is fictional, for obvious reasons. Perhaps it shouldn't be. If it were real, sex would be uplifted to a higher level than where we find it at today in the world of privatized sex where the scene is wide open to abuses, even violence and slavery, or the abuse of children, with love drifting far into the background in many situations. But the challenges that unfold with the Principle of Universal Love are formidable too, in today's emotionally supercharged, privatized world, where we see each other more as property than sovereign human beings living rich and free in the sphere of love that demands a divine-level of expression.

It appears that the challenges of the Principle of Universal Love may yet be met, and may be met quite naturally. As the protagonists in the story discover, it may well be possible with enough honesty with ourselves, to experience the brilliance of an unfolding love that is no longer pushed out of sight and mind, as long-standing doctrines and traditions would impel us, but is allowed to blossom, from the sexual level upwards to ever-higher ground.

The story was chosen for the Sex and Sacrament project, for its daring to challenge long-standing limits in the sphere of sex and relationships. (Please refer to the Postscript: About the Sex and Sacrament Project.)

The story in this book, Brilliance of a Night, comprises a portion of my novel, Discovering Love, (Book 1) of the epic series of 12 novels, The Lodging for the Rose.
