Re: Theos-World From Long Sealed Ancient Fountains.

Indeed, now some more down to earth views:
(the subject has been topic among many theosophists,
especially on the sexual part)
There are 7 needs to be filled when taking on physical
exsistence or in easy language, you need 7 things to
be alive in this world:
Feeding, drinking, shitting, peeing, sex, sleep and as
a cullimination of these 6 a purpose, a goal in life.
All these are natural and usally easy to fullfill. If
any of these 6 needs is malfunctioning i.e. there is
lack or disease the 7th need gets distorted.
A way to accomplish the sane fullfillment of the 6
needs is to look at how Nature acts:
Natura Artis Magistra; nature gives fruits, seeds,
nuts, 1 year plants, as well as through animals: milk,
butter, cheese and eggs. In fact a vegetarian
lifestyle is what nature shows us to use (in fact our
digestion area is built for vegatarian food, just look
at the length of the long bowel.
Drinks should be as pure as possible from the above or
just plain (in our society)filtered water. Alcohol
should be taken only for medicinal purposes.
Shitting and peeing should be done in the most
hygienic way possible, it gives a lust feeling of
relief; cats and dogs used to cover it when done, a
natural instinct to tell them to be clean.
Being fed well and not thirsty leads to sexual
appetite, not attraction to the other sexe, which has
to do with the 7th need. No its just pure lust for
life to be fulfilled with an orgasm usually once a
month. Orgasm comes from the word organism, when an
organism is in good shape it could be called orgastic.
Masturbation is the only way to accomplish this,
without thought, just feeling.
Sleep is the need for being together with the oneself,
the realself who has put your machine in the field of
experience, according your experiences you sleep
deeper or not.
The goal of life could sound like: the need for a
human to solve living in the dualistic world according
to his inner balanced nature.
Much more could be said about this subject, I only
give my own view which is far from perfect and written
down here as debatable thoughts.
So if I am wrong on some part, please share your own
experiences, just like I tried to share mine here.
