Given that it is something lusted after so heavily by the most cynical and unromantic of people it is fair to say it is dependent on something outside of the self.
It is dependent on orgnanic bodies which are the creation of God and so it is inappropriate to be utilising the creations of a third party in this matter especially when they can see everything you are doing.
GOD VIEW OF THE UNIVERSE
The physical universe is the manifestation of Gods mind and God can see everything in it. The only means to privacy is to not take from the senses.
IT IS HARDER TO STAY STILL THAN IT IS TO MOVE.
Practising the art of non physical movement is the best means of being free of the realm of the senses where God and possibly other spirits can see what you are doing.
carnality: relating to physical, esp. sexual, needs and activities.

They also know when you are looking at yourself in the mirror.
"Given that it is something lusted after so heavily by the most cynical and unromantic of people it is fair to say it is dependent on something outside of the self."
How is it "fair" to say something like that as carnality has zero to do with cynicism or romance? Unless you refer to millions of years of evolution?
It is difficult to see how anything physical is essential to an eternal truth.
Perhaps the external is a refection of the internal and the internal is an extension of the eternal.
In the light of sexuality, you are right ... it is confusing.
And sitting still is a crummy antidote. I don't get that either.
A matter to contemplate. God evidently not having a partner is an interesting matter. As for mortal beings the concept of utlising things given by God is presumably generally inevitable in the time being. But the concept of a being being combined into an object such as the body is an interesting one. It is interesting to contemplate the concept of carnailty as beings seem so dependent on it for self definition. You could start feeling awkward about any sort of physical contact. Of course carnality gives an out of the body experience which is perhaps why people think it is quite spiritual.
But of course people looking on carnal indulgence as some sort of achievement to boast about means it is deviation of expression for a person.
Evidently people have some strange ideas that you need to indulge carnality to be moral. You can see how ironically and badly that can end.
Interesting. Maybe, we should simply ask someone who knows better than us.

Do you believe in the power of prayer? I have found that whenever I pray to God, it is like something comes over me in the sense that I know he is going to take care of me and my situation. Don't you think if we trusted in God a little more, things would work out. I know I would not worry so much!

Peter & SirDent suggested this would make a great topic and I agree. Most of you probably know my thoughts on this subject already. So what do you all think?
