Ji Elle sent the following comments about whether she is actually hearing her own thoughts from The Holy Spirit and is grateful to learn that this is actually possible. She also wonders about the reasons behind Homosexuality.
“Great website really provided me with some additional insight into things I had been feeling and theorizing about. Plus, I had a small bit of skepticism about whenever I converse with the Holy Spirit, whether I’m really hearing from the Holy Spirit, or formulating thoughts. Now I’m certain that I was correct in feeling the Holy Spirit giving me thoughts, this conversing with me. And I’m glad I’m not the only one who speaks casually to It. Great site Ms. Linda. Thank you.
Can you ask if the Bible’s views on homosexuality refer more to flagrant and insignificant sexuality than actually loving someone of the same human sex? I mean isn’t it just attraction to their inner being which, in my not-so-educated guess, doesn’t have a gender like we consider in human form. And if not, what is the talk about homosexuality in the Upper Realms?”
Oh my Holy Spirit, what is Heaven’s view of Homosexuality? How do You, Upper Ones, view our sexuality, down here on Earth?
“Oh My God! It’s a much more impersonal view than any human might suspect. These sexual pleasures are there for two reasons.
1. To assure the propagation of humankind. That’s also true for many types of lifeforms which require the combination of male and female eggs and sperm. Motivation comes in the form of pleasure as a reward for certain required activities necessary for the fertilization of an egg. In general, that requires a male and a female combination, but only if reproduction is the object.
2. Sexual satisfaction is another matter and is best left to an individual. As long as it is conducted with love and happiness.”
To “make love” in a sexual way is the ultimate demonstration of an attracting bond between two people. Then, there are many less-personal combinations, such as differing degrees of friendship, which fill everyone’s lives. All are familiar with the lighter, passing situations that don’t require vows or commitment to enter into.
It suddenly occurs to me that a sexual relationship with another human carries with it much more baggage than mere friendship or family involvement. Even a heterosexual couple, suddenly making the plunge to become serious with each other, is advised to consider and to discuss a few vital issues before going to bed together for the first time. Many don’t stop to think, but it would still be a very smart move.
They need to find out if this new partner is free of prior emotional or legal entanglement. Are they free of communicable disease? Sexual, or otherwise? Does the interest and mutual attraction match or is one of them simply playing around? Are there children to consider?Do they need birth control? These are all unromantic and practical details, which don’t even cover controversial same-sex issues and the attitude held by each participant…. including past history, which it behooves a responsible person to face with all honesty before they wind up in a compromised position. So, such a discussion between the participants is even more important if it is a same-sex couple.
Attitudes about all sexuality cover a wide range of permissibility and every warning carries some sort of heavyweight risk issue. Usually about the dire consequences that might follow an uninformed consent. It’s one thing to be told that there is “No Sin” attached, but that could apply to many things, from drinking to divorce.
No blanket statement can ever imply that a sexual act between two people is either right or wrong. Nor could a ceremony of marriage categorically make any couple’s coming together an absolute act of purity and safety.
These are outside events, as is God’s general attitude. I believe that the critical answer lies only between the two members of that couple, at the time that they’re considering forming a consensual sexual bond between them. Each one knows their own freedom to act and they know the faults or gifts that they bring to the table. Whatever energy their candor provides will determine the rightness or wrongness of the next contemplated step.
This is far beyond the mere chemical attraction used to fertilize an egg. And it’s far beyond the impulse of a same-sex couple, simply to take a stand in this New Age of greater freedom. It is completely about the issue of the qualification of each partner to “make a family,” even if that consists only of two people.
Otherwise, it’s simply casual sex and doesn’t require society’s permission; because that lightly-taken activity never has. And it doesn’t endure long enough to go through the serious work we are discussing here.
Old beliefs, norms and religious teachings used to forbid differing nationalities and races to combine as couples. Cousins and family members were forbidden to inter-marry because of genetic problems for their offspring. Naturally, this reasoning would be moot in same-sex couples. Oh, my Holy Spirit! Can You wrap this subject up for us?
“Wow! I think you have covered it completely! One more point is that certain individuals come to Earth in different-sex bodies from life to life; alternating from male to female in their reincarnations. Possibly, Lovers could meet again while wearing similar-sex bodies and their mutual magnetism would actually be a recognition of their Inner Selves. But the attraction would be to the whole self, as well.”
