The meaning of sexuality has been gutted, ravaged, and reduced to describe only a very narrow, limited, physical part of the human experience. The full meaning of sexuality is not focused on copulation—it is far more encompassing and descriptive of the human experience. From the time we are born, we are sexual beings. Sexuality is not limited to physical urges or sexual experiences; rather, your sexuality is your ability to connect with yourself and others. Your sexuality is who you are as a man or a woman. It is how you show up in your roles as a man or woman. Sexuality is meant to connect you with yourself and with others.
The core of sexuality is about me being connected to my gender/sex—in other words, being connected to my male-ness or female-ness. Caring for myself sexually means thinking and doing things that strengthen me in my ability and desire to show up in my roles and responsibilities as an honest man or an honest woman: a parent, aunt, uncle, sister, brother, provider, protector, teacher, mentor, etc.
is the central spiritual and emotional need of every human being. Connection is the ability to know yourself completely, and to share yourself with yourself, with others, and with God or a Higher Power. Connection is an outcome of being impeccably emotionally honest, assertive, responsible, humble, transparent, open, and vulnerable. It means taking risks, sacrificing, and genuinely validating others. Calm, peace and empathy are the outcomes of a lifestyle of connection. The pathway to connection is impeccable emotional honesty, rigorous personal responsibility, and humility. Those who pursue this course become conscious of—and can challenge—their distorted thoughts, false beliefs, fears, addictions, lusts and selfishness, and find the fruits of love, empathy, intimacy, compassion, personal empowerment, spiritual freedom, and connection.
