A wild animal doesn’t mate well in captivity. There is no room for its spirit to roam free so it will not have the motivation to reproduce in its small cage. Then it takes viagra to deliver what nature moves it to want.
Using this analogy, see how free you are to live your life. Not just your physical but also your emotional freedom, your emotional life, if you are living in the captivity of social conforms or parental control and emotional manipulation.
These things control adults as well as children, and continue if you allow it to continue. This places you in a cage, which is depressing. Left unchecked, life just passes and the cause of stress related illnesses has taken root as well and conflicts and difficulties in your relationships.
When you question why you are not really happy, or why you are depressed, you should be looking at the walls of the cage that you have chosen to remain within, and realize how that traps your spirit and is destroying your spark for life and motivation.
Reproduction and sexual passion is not just about having babies, it is about producing offspring so to speak, of a spiritual or energetic nature as well.
There is a Kabbalistic (Jewish mysticism) teaching that says when two or more people get together and discuss the Kaballah, if they are pure of heart, they create angels with their discussion. But, if they are dark in their heart, then daemons are produced.
If you live a life controlled by political, social, religious or family traditions and restrictions, you may be dark in heart and the energy that you are exuding is dark. But, if you are free and willing and able to skip down the road, to just sing out loud, to talk to God or your invisible friends out loud, that freedom lets your spirit breath and your smile will be showering everyone who sees you with positive uplifting energy. You will then have a wonderful effect that you will notice like I do.
When I go into a coffee shop that I frequent, and the line is long, as I stand in line, I see the staff working away with the usual bored or serious face. As soon as they see me in line, they light up with big smiles and joy.
This ‘nut’ who talks to himself out loud and may get some strange looks, can light up the day for many people, even ones who do not show it, but can see there is one person walking this earth who seems to know a secret to happiness.
