Response by Doug Esse
“The more, shall we say, integral sexuality or polarity of the body complex, which is a portion of the mind/body/spirit complex, does not concern itself with these yellow-ray manifestations but rather follows the ways of the seeking of energy transfer and the furthering of aid and service to others or to the self.”Law of One session 87.22
Friend: Is RA basically saying that upon the positive path, as men/women mind-body-spirit complexes begin to view the other as creator, they should begin to not associate themselves with the red ray sexual urges and temptations that may befall them…through viewing other as creator?
Doug: I think it’s more that a person who has integrated all three aspects of their complex firmly into the seat of green ray enjoy a certain new order of being characterized by a desire to serve the Creator as active and engaged stewards (salt, yeast, lights on a hill) of green and blue ray within a planetary mind whose seat of consciousness primarily resides in orange-yellow.
What does this mean about sex? Green-blue ray energetics sees creation from unitive consciousness and desires to invite others into unitive consciousness (see Original Desire 20.27).
Orange-yellow energetics sees the world primarily from separative consciousness which leans on what the Greeks call “storge” or the love of possessions.
Sex in Orange-yellow energy has an emphasis of seeing the other as merely an object or possession for one’s own benefit. It’s a combination of storge and eros; a subject-object connection.
Sex in green-blue emphasizes companionship, comradeship, a mutual abiding that seeks an outcome of symbiosis. Both partners experience an empowerment—a gestalt— that is greater than the sum of the energy that each put in. It’s a combo of eros and philia (Greek for deep friendship). As an article in Psychology Today states:
For Plato, the best kind of friendship is that which lovers have for each other. It is a philia born out of eros, and that in turn feeds back into eros to strengthen and develop it, transforming it from a lust for possession into a shared desire for a higher level of understanding of the self, the other, and the world. In short, philiatransforms eros from a lust for possession into an impulse for philosophy.https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/hide-and-seek/201606/these-are-the-7-types-love
To put it succinctly: with sex in orange-yellow, desire is often in the service of storge. With sex in green-blue, desire is in the service of philia, with an eye towards agape.
