Relation and Sexuality

Mankind has thought of sex in terms of a relation between the opposite sexes in organic living systems, never for a moment including sex relations in the mineral kingdom, in hot suns, or the ice caps of the poles of planets. We used such terms as cohabitation and sex relation as though the sex relation is entirely separate and apart from other relations, and as though its reproductive effect is limited to living things that die or decay.

From now on, sex will be regarded in our new perspective as being expressed continuously and perpetually in all things. Instead of thinking in terms of cohabitation and human sexual relationships, sex should be thought of as the interchange between pairs of oppositely unbalanced conditions for the purpose of balancing these conditions in every effect of motion in the entire universe. Good effects are those in which the interchange is balanced and bad effects are those in which balance is not complete.

(Walter and Lao Russell, Home Study Course in Cosmic Consciousness, Unit 3, Lesson 10)

For Walter Russell, sexuality is not restricted to reproduction and cohabitation. On the contrary, sex is the universal partner principle in Nature, which is the basis of every interchange. He is of the opinion that the ignorance of this fact and its tremendous significance for all aspects of human life are the main causes of all our problems.
