10 thoughts on “6 Ways To Utilize Polyamory On Your Spiritual Journey

  1. Petrus Laredes

    I’ve suspected that I’m inherently poly for most of my life, Chris. I’m
    fairly sure my father was. He had a very difficult time with fidelity
    within his marriage. Unfortunately, the primary way that I’ve chosen to
    deal with sexuality up to this point, aside from a single partner five
    years ago, has been to deliberately get fat and remain celibate, as a means
    of avoiding it. I’ve been feeling lately that sex is something I need to
    integrate, though.

    Thanks for sharing vulnerably. I had a similar father. Reading the book
    “Sex at Dawn” clarifies why monogamy is a forced fit. Why have you been
    avoiding your sexuality?

    I had an autistic diagnosis at 16; and although in hindsight I had positive
    advanced from a number of girls during high school and later, my ability to
    recognise them and know how to respond in the moment remains poor. I also
    have a relative who is a convicted paedophile, and I suspect I’m probably
    carrying around a large amount of secondary guilt relating to that
    incident. I will look into that book you mentioned.

    I’ve also, now that I think about it, been exposed to some extremely
    puritannical material concerning sex. Ironically, in my own case it hasn’t
    so much come from Christianity, but from the reading I’ve done into more
    conservative areas of Vedanta, or Hinduism. Hindu orthodoxy places a very
    strong emphasis on brahmacharya, which involves the complete expulsion of
    sex from human life, even in purely mental terms.

    Thanks for sharing. If I’m interpreting correctly it sounds like you’d
    enjoy getting healthy, taking chances with women, releasing any residual
    guilt for someone else’s actions, and letting go of anti-sex dogma.

  6. Petrus Laredes

    That is correct. I found a pdf of the book Sex at Dawn, and I’m reading it.
    I’ve also recently found a lot of material on the Gerson juice diet, and
    I’m soon going to be buying a food processor so I can start migrating to
    it. I’ve got a long way to go, but I think I’ll get there. Thank you for
    listening. 😀

    “If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
    Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
    So if you love a flower, let it be.
    Love is not about possession.
    Love is about appreciation.” -Osho
