Relation and Sexuality

Everything in the Universe is trying to become every other thing; and every condition of everything is trying to become every other condition.

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.


All Motion is Sex Motion

All motion is sex motion, for all motion has but one purpose, which is to divide the balance of the indivisible universal equilibrium into pairs of oppositely unbalanced conditions, which perpetually seek balance in each opposite mate for the purpose of repeating the divided sex condition.

At fist, this concept may be difficult to accept without reservations. I can hear the questions: Do we apply this concept of sex to minerals, to the motions of work in a factory, or to the smelting of metals? I emphatically answer Yes to these questions and all other questions concerning the interchange of motion of any kind.

Sex as the Characteristic of the Elements

Natures control over the lower orders of creative expression, such as in the chemical elements, is plainly indicated in their crystallization. Every truly balanced mating of equal halves crystallizes as a true cube, while the slightest deviation in balance departs from the cube.

Sex is not yet recognized as characteristic of the elements. It is supposedly limited to the organic or living things of Creation. Sex is the fundamental principle of Creation. Everything comes into the appearance of existence by the union of two opposite halves of a unit pattern, and everything repeats itself by the division of a unit into its positive and negative expressions. This is as true of the elements of matter as it is of animal and vegetable life.

The sex matings of the elements exactly coincide in effect with the sex matings of humans. Violent explosions in the elements have the same basic cause as such violent explosions as murder in humans. Terrific electric unbalance is the cause of both. Likewise, stability in the elements and in humans has the same cause in equality of balance.

Sodium and chlorine are good examples of positive and negative opposites of a pair which are equally but oppositely balanced with each other and each equally unbalanced with its fulcrum equator. When these two chemical elements marry, they become such perfectly balanced and stable mates that the chemists call them affinities.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol II, p. 164)


Seeking a Partner

Everyone recognizes to some extent the type that each is draw to and they intuitively fee each others polarity, mentally and physically. Such types naturally gravitate to and recognize each other, so that out of any hundred people, ninety-nine might have no mental or sex appeal for each other while the hundredth would. All humans should seek the type which corresponds to their own electric wave length. When types so find each other, they will be as perfectly balanced as sodium and chlorine, and the union should be enduring.

It is a common saying that people should marry their opposites. Nothing could be more contrary to universal law than this statement. Everywhere in Nature, like attracts like. This is fundamental. Opposites repel each other. Opposites in temperament and physical patterns invite discord, infidelity and mutual degradation. Matrimonial mismating unbalances the blood stream just as certainly as promiscuous mismating unbalances it.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol. II, p. 167)


Adaptation of Conditions

We are all electric creatures floating in the electric sea of this electric universe. Every electric thing in the entire universe breathes electrically into itself from the rest of the electric universe which is outside of itself. It also breathes out of itself into the rest of the universe.

In more simple words, we might say everything in the universe is trying to become every other thing; and every condition of everything is trying to become every other condition. A hot iron, for example, will strive to become as cool as its environment, and the cool environment will strive to become as hot as the hot iron. They compromise and find an equilibrium between the two, which is neither the one thing nor the other. This conspicuous fact is one of the most characteristic traits of Nature.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol II, p. 168)


Sex is the Creative Principle

It is the dual desire force in Mind for expressing its One Idea. Without a division of the one unconditioned Light into two seemingly conditioned lights, Creation could not be.

Sex is not a thing, it is a condition of a thing.
An electrically balanced condition of anything is sexless whether it be a man, woman, electric battery, or the atmosphere.

A sexed condition is an unbalanced condition. An electric battery which is fully charged is dually unbalanced by the opposite electric pressures of compression and expansion. These two opposite unbalanced conditions violently desire to return to the oneness of balance from which they were divided into two. A short circuit between the two poles of the battery will give it that balance. We then say it is dead, for it will no longer perform work by expressing its desire for balance.

(Walter Russell, The Secret of Light, p. 100)


Equal Pairs of Opposites

Every pair of opposites is divided by an equilibrium which is a balance between the two, but that balance is nit either of the two. Sodium-chloride is an equilibrium which voids both sodium and chlorine, for neither is present in it. Likewise, water is the equator which voids hydrogen and oxygen.

All opposites of all kinds extend from a mutual equator which is their common unity, and to that equator they must eventually return in order to repeat. Every pair must become one in order to again become two.

Men and women do not escape this two-way reciprocatve law. Each becomes what the other is. Both are always compromising each others unbalance. If the two unbalances are equal and opposite, each type will survive and grow mentally, spiritually and physically. If the two unbalanced mates are unequal in their opposition, the penalty is degeneration mentally, spiritually and physically. The quality of one mate is a compromise with the quality of the other. The pattern resulting from this spiritual, mental and moral development is compromised for good or bad by every contact between them no matter how slight. This is true even outside the sex union.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol. II, pp 168-169)
