Hi Rad, thanks for explaining this...
Sex desire is not specifically a function of separating desires because the sexual instinct within all humans is necessary in order for the species to be sustained. The Soul's orientation to that natural sexual instinct is what needs to be examined in your question. Whatever that orientation is may or may not be unconscious depending on the evolutionary condition or station of any given Soul, and the capacity of any given Soul to be self reflective so as to consciously know the what their orientation is, the reasons why, for any given sexual desire. Once any two Souls act upon their sexual desires for one another then, yes, a karma is established for them.
I have a question about sexuality through the archetype of Taurus. Is it possible for two souls that are not literally committing to each other to experience a form of sexuality that is rooted in a deep respect for the beauty of the body, of sensuality, of the growth and joy experienced through sharing sexuality, and that not being a function of separating desires?
In that state the two souls seems to be elevating the sexual impulse to one of gratitude and joy and so long as this does not degrade into a pursuit of self interest and indulgence, my intuition is that it is not a function of separating desires. Just like wholeheartedly enjoying a cup of tea is not necessarily a function of separating desires, so long as there is not a desire/need for the tea itself, but rather appreciation, respect and gratitude for it... is this an accurate understanding?
Also, is there a difference in this case between the actual exchange of fluids versus being aroused/moving sexual energy together but not actually having sex?
Thank you, God bless,
