Prostitute for God.
Is it heresy to suggest such a thing?
Can someone “entice” another to “feel” the Spiritual? To elevate one Self to a Higher World by first being attracted through physical “love” of another?
Why not? Haven’t the priests of old done just that? In ancient times. Like in Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia. I bet there were sects in which persons, usually men, got a taste of the Almighty only after being drawn to the Temple by a virgin. A woman who planned to do just that — bring another to God or a Higher Force by way of attraction. The trick, I would daresay, would be to stay a “virgin,” or “virginal.” [“Pure,” may be a better word.] To lure them in, expose them to the teachings and basic understanding, and to move on to another in need of “coming home.” Sans sex. Sans committment. Sans fear. How could a man feel “cheated” once he has seen the Light? He’d realize “Agape Love” was at work the whole time and be filled with gratitude.
Lisa, my new “old soul” friend, casually mentioned the term over a cup of coffee while discussing such wide topics as Pranic healing, Buddhism and Kabbalah. She brought a book written part in Hebrew for my perusal and I gave her one recently written by my Tibetan Lama. I explained the first secret of KABBALAH is to “receive” pleasure in order to “bestow.” I hope I wet her appetite, as she has done for my spiritual awakening.
“What’s wrong with being a Prostitute for God?” I asked, suddenly realizing a unique way to bring spirituality to a land seemingly devoid of it. “Let someone be attracted to the physical and show them what really counts, the spiritual.” Lisa, a very attractive young woman can easily attract people. She has a simplicity about her that is charming, and at the same time, disarming. Until she gets her points across. Like her beliefs of an oncoming major shift in the attitude of the world — a spiritual one — with the coming of the Winter Solstice in the Year 2012. I defer to her knowledge, and listen enraptured like a puppy dog, willing to follow her lead for what ever Joy I can find and/or learn.
I trust her. I know that one serving in such a capacity — drawing others to a higher consciousness by way of physical — must have a staunch ethical foundation. To be ready to put on the brakes if or when the “drawn-in” party wants more physicality than practicality, ie., the “teachings” of whatever sage the guide might be directing one toward. There should be little or no consummation unless the actual spiritual practice allows for such right action and both parties know of the consequences, and responsibilities, such a close connection may require.
So, ladies and gentlemen. Develop a strong ethical code and start to wet the appetite of someone who finds you attractive. You could be what Destiny has planned for them.
As well as for You!
