“The greatest blessing which can come to any half-unit in God’s creating universe is the finding of its balancing other half. The search for that other half is the supreme urge which makes of man the perpetual searcher for the supreme discover which is seldom found. This perpetual search of man has a name — and the word for it is ROMANCE.“ - Walter Russell
“Through woman I speak of Love to man, and to woman through man. Many there are whose bodies heareth the call of body and call it Love. These think of Love as divisible possessions which can be possessed, acquired, given or taken by one from another one. These know not that the senses of one unbalanced body are but calling to another unbalanced body for balance which they forever find to forever lose in wave cycles of finding and losing. But again I say that manifestations of Love through sensed bodies is not Love e’en though it springeth from the fulcrum of Love in Me. Pairs of oppositely conditioned bodies must forever interchange with each other to find balance with Me.” - universal One (via Walter Russell)
“A spiritual union between any man and woman is of ten thousand times more value than love physically expressed without the spiritual. Love is not objective, nor can it be possessed. The woman awakens love in the man, and the man awakens love in the woman. The romance of it is in the awakening, not in the consummation. It is the awakened ability to love which counts, and not the acquisition of the object which has awakened it, nor in any physical contact whatsoever.” - Lao Russell
“How many people are there on earth who can be one with you through love? If you know such a one, you can then merge your unity and God will be in your midst. Such love as that between perfectly mated men and women multiplies your power, for when husband and wife both belong to God, working knowingly with Him, each one is then KNOWING together, THINKING together and working together with God as ONE.“ - Walter Russell
“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.“ - Edgar Cayce
“As sex is the most important thing in shaping man’s life — individually and collectively — sex science should be the most important fundamental of his education and dealt with as frankly as history or mathematics. It is unfortunate for the progress of the human race — physically and culturally — that this is not so, for the renaissance from this downhill plunging of the races of man is a long way off and slow in its coming. Individual unbalance is the forerunner of universal unbalance. Unbalance is usually created by sex unbalance; therefore, too much importance cannot be placed on sexual education in youth. The creative urge is in truth the sex urge and can either become the greatest force for good or the greatest deterrent in life. Our youth should know the importance of balanced mating. A marriage which is based purely upon physical attraction is not a balanced mating. There must be a spiritual, mental and physical harmony if the essential electrical balance is to be attained.“ - Walter Russell
“Every male is also female, and every female is also male, for every unit of everything is polarized with both opposites. The male-female conditions are continually interchanging in each polarized body in every cycle of every wave length. When you breathe in you are charging your body toward strengthening the fatherhood idea of you. Out of that opposite the motherhood idea springs in your outbreathing. In that one cycle you have expressed both conditions. That same interchange and alternation takes place in every thought cycle, as well as your whole life cycle. (…) It is not the male and female which interchange, it is their conditions. Interchange balances the opposed positive and negative conditions but does not void the male or female bodies.“ - Walter Russell
“One of Nature’s characteristics is the development of patterned forms which we call species, types, races or breeds. Nature’s manner of repeating these unfolding species of things is the splitting of their patterns into two electrically balanced equal harmonious apposite halves, and then mating those equal halves in order to electrically reproduce other equal pairs of halves, by Nature’s automatic processes in her use of electric waves.
We call this division of Nature into pairs of mates a “sex division”. We call the unions of the sexes “matings”. Nature creates her pure species of separate kinds of things by controlling the division into pairs of equal halves of the same electrically recorded patterns, and the matings of similarly balanced equal halves.
Through her connecting lines of magnetic flux Nature telegraphs to all unfolding creatures her inviolate laws. They are recorded in them as instinct, or are otherwise sensed: and every living creature, except those to whom freewill has been given, instinctively obeys that holiest of all Nature’s laws, the law of equal mating of harmoniously patterned halves.
Nature’s 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.” - Walter Russell
“Lack of higher sex knowledge is causing a rapid degeneracy of the whole of our civilization. (…) Lack of knowledge of sex mating is one of the greatest causes for degeneracy of world races. Civilizations have fallen from high places many times in history for lack of sex knowledge and from wrong sex practices. It is possible that this present civilization will fall for the same reason. It is well to examine our sex human relations in this respect.
By higher sex knowledge I mean the effect of wrong sex practice and wrong mate choosing from a spiritual, mental and character building viewpoint instead of just from the physical and biological point of view. (…) Sex practice and ideals of sex determine the standards of body and mind. One will inevitably ascend, or descend, physically, mentally and spiritually through one’s sex practice.
“Men and women must learn the significance of the sexual relation, and its possible influence upon life and character. Copulation is more than a propagative act; it is a blending of body, soul and spirit, ennobling or degrading according to the attitude of the participants.” - Alice Stockham
“Love is the fulfillment of the law. Sexual love is its highest expression on the earth-plane, and sexual union is symbolical of this love. It stands as evidence of creative energy in action. Love is the impelling power, and as through affinity and attraction, a chemical union takes place between two substances producing another substance, so in a union of the sexes on the spiritual plane accomplishes results greater than could be accomplished separately. The artist has visions of new creations, the author has inspirations for new works, the inventor has new plans and models for machinery and devices. There is no limit to the power of a true soul union.” - Alice Stockham
Sex practice can be the most spiritually uplifting or the most mentally and physically defiling thing in one’s life, according to one’s ideals concerning sex thinking, or lack of them. The greatest injury from promiscuous sex relations lies in the fact that each person has his own “wave length” or “number”—and his own wave pattern—which he has created from his own thinking.
Promiscuous sex relations affect both by undermining both. Each is benefited if the wave patterns are harmonious or injured if the electrical wave patterns are too greatly opposed. Few realize that every cell in the body, plus the nature of the blood stream, is permanently affected — for better or worse — by sex relations.
The sex relation unifies two close mates but badly distorts electrically unbalanced ones. Years of hard climbing toward one’s spiritual goal can be nullified in one brief costly hour of thoughtlessness in violating this most holy relationship between the sexes. Just as wrong sex practice can defile a life, so, likewise, can it defile a whole civilization.” - Walter Russell
“Karezza is controlled non-seminal intercourse. (…) the distinctive name of the art and method of sexual relations without orgasmal conclusion. (…) in the highest form and best expression of the art neither man nor, woman has or desires to have the orgasm (…) As a matter of fact, Karezza is absolutely natural. It employs Nature only and from first to last. To check any act which prudence suggests, or experience has shown, likely to have undesired consequences, is something constantly done throughout all Nature, even among the lowest animals. Karezza is such a check. It is simply prudence and skill in the sexual realm, changing its form and direction of activity in such wise that the desired pleasure may be more fully realized and the undesired results avoided. Nothing more. (…) In ideal and successful Karezza the sexual passion is transmuted and sublimated, to a greater or less degree, into tenderness and love, and the thought is maintained that the orgasm is not desired or desirable.” - J.W. Lloyd
“Karezza is the embrace - The Embrace - the most perfect and satisfying thing in human life, between two mates who truly love. All other caresses point to this and are unsatisfactory because they are not it. It is the only embrace for the truly refined and poetic, as an adequate ex-pression of their insatiable longing to be at one. It is Heaven, on earth.” - J.W. Lloyd
“Real Karezza requires preparatory mental exercise. It requires first the understanding and conviction that the spiritual, the caressive, the tender side of the relation is much more important, much more productive of pleasure in fact, than the merely sexual, and that throughout the whole relation the sexual is to be held subordinate to this love side as its tool, its agent, its feeder. Sex is indeed required to furnish all it has to the feast, but strictly under the leadership of and to the glory of love.” - J.W. Lloyd
“Karezza is easy and successful just in proportion to the abundance of mutual love - hard and difficult just in proportion as mere sexcraving dominates love. (…) the more the man rises above mere sex-hunger in delicious perfection of romantic love, the more easy and natural and effortless becomes Karezza-control, and the less likely is he to have a failure; (…) It is the predominance of the finer emotions, the capture of the body by the soul and the joyous devotion of every function to that dear service, that alone renders Karezza easy and divinely satisfying. (…) It is art, intellect, morality and estheticism in sexual enjoyment instead of crude, reckless appetite.” - J.W. Lloyd
“(…) the Karezza artist sublimates a portion of his sexual passion into the more refined, intellectual, poetic and heart-sweet expression of feeling, thus preventing it from ever reaching that pitch of local intensity which demands explosive discharge. In other words: the soul, taking over the blind sex-emotion, diffuses it and irradiates the whole being for a prolonged period with its joy-giving, exalting potency.” - J.W. Lloyd
“Joy is the greatest beautifier on earth and there is no joy like sex-joy. I prophesy that when Karezza becomes the habit of the people, made easy and perfect by inheritance developing into instinct, that the human race will become beautiful exceedingly, beyond the beauty of all former times; a subtle, inward beauty, shining through. The sex-force, which produces such rapture when felt locally, such a divine ecstasy when diffused in Karezza, will be healing in the hands of the physician, eloquence on the lips of the orator, fire in the eyes of the leader, genius in the brain of the great.” - J.W. Lloyd
“As a rule the woman's passion, however great, must be subordinated to the man's. He must feel himself the stronger and more positive of the two and as controlling the situation. If the woman takes the lead, is more positive, especially if she assumes this suddenly and unexpectedly, the result is almost always failure. The woman may rule in the house, in the business, in the social life, and it may be very well, but in Karezza the man must be her chief and her hero or the relation leaves both dissatisfied. In the ordinary, orgasmal, procreative embrace the woman may dominate and be successful, at least become impregnated, though her pleasure is usually imperfect, but Karezza is a different matter. And this is because in Karezza the woman is happy in proportion to her fulfilled femininity, the man in proportion to his realized masculinity, and each happy in realizing this in the intimate touch of the other.” - J.W. Lloyd
“Owing to the blending of the two natures, their mutual exaltation and reception of each other's moral qualities, it is soon to be noted that lovers who practice Karezza display the fruits of such inspiration and transmutation. The woman becomes strong, proud, confident, logical - displaying the finer masculine - while the man becomes gentle, considerate, compassionate, sympathetic, intuitive - revealing the finer feminine. Thus the sexes spiritually change and interweave and become at-one.” - J.W. Lloyd
“You will finally enter into such unity that in your fullest embrace you can hardly tell yourselves apart and can read each other's thoughts. You will feel a physical unity as if her blood flowed in your veins, her flesh were yours. For this is the Soul-Blending Embrace.” - J.W. Lloyd
“The impregnation of each by the other with beautiful thoughts, divine dreams, high hopes, noble ambitions, pure aspirations, clairvoyant vision, the birth-bed of genius. (…) The embrace of at-one-ness, of expression, and purification and revivification, that incarnates the divine in the human.”- J.W. Lloyd
[ See chapter 11 - the karezza method of Lloyds' book, for more practical advise on Karezza. ]
“Sex is the apparent division of the One force (…), two opposite forces, positive [charging] and negative [discharging], which are in reality but two [directional] pulsations of the One force.” - Walter Russell
“Physical sex-forms are often very deceptive. Some women are more masculine than the average man, and vice versa, which accounts for much of the phenomena of homosexuality. In all deep-seated friendships between those of the same external sex it will be observed that spiritually one represents the masculine element, one the feminine. And masculine women normally love and marry feminine men. (…) “But the complexity by no means stops here. Each person is dual in sex, both in body and in each organ and part. We still remember our divine ancestry, still are androgyne and hermaphrodite. And this is not only so, but it is variably, changeably so. Sex alternates and plays through us all the time, partly involuntarily, partly as we will it. It varies even with difference in weather, food, fatigue, health, and all external impressions and internal evolutions. Thus one listening to an argument may be altogether negative, receptive, feminine in mind, till some word or thought changes the mood, and then, instantly, positive, projective, masculine - this change of mental sex possible, in the same person of either physical sex, within a few moments of time.” - J.W. Lloyd
“Man can no more create an enduring civilization without woman than he can create a baby without woman. All ideas of the Mind, as well as all created bodies which manifest Mind, must have a mother as well as a father. The great error of man in this respect lies not so much in selfishness and ego as it does to the hold-over of his pagan memory of woman's value to him as being purely physical. Until man and woman can equalize their mental relations and work together for spiritual unity, a balanced civilization is impossible.” - Lao Russell
“The spiritual love nature of woman has never had a chance of balancing the progress of civilization and, for that reason, civilizations have repeatedly fallen as our present civilization must inevitably fall because of its own unbalance and disunity in all of the essentials necessary for a normal existence.” - Lao Russell
“There is a New Message from God in the world, and one of the things that it calls for is the emergence of women leaders, particularly in the area of spirituality and religion. It is time now for certain women to be called into these greater roles and responsibilities, and it is important around the world in different quarters and in different religious traditions that this be allowed. It will be interesting, perhaps, for you to consider that in advanced nations in the universe — advanced nations in the Greater Community of intelligent life in which you live — that where there is a distinction between men and women, or male and female, in those particular races, the races that are not androgynous in nature, that the female is usually given priority in matters of conscience and spirituality.” - M.V. Summers
“Sex indulgence, like alcohol, temporarily gives a false sense of elation, which is inevitably followed by a state of depression, because the cerebrospinal fluidic essence, which is the conductor of the highest Vital Energy in the body, is expended. The presence of this Energy Essence is necessary in every cell of the body, for rebuilding and repair, healing and constant replacement of new cells for old worn out cells. Cellular vigor and function depend on this Primary Life Energy. In fact, over-indulgence through any of the senses leads to mental as well as physical illness, exhaustion and depletion. Such impulses cannot be conquered permanently by mere suppression but only by supplanting them with desires and impulses of a higher order. As long as unfulfilled desires of any of the five senses are lurking in the mind, there is frustration, and frustration leads to ill health. Emotions are the inner chemistry of life.” - Randolph Stone
“The reabsorption of semen by the blood is the strongest nourishment and, perhaps more than any other factor, it prompts the stimulus of power (…)” - F. Nietzsche
“I discovered, from the analysis of over 25,000 people, that men who succeed in an outstanding way, seldom do so before the age of forty, and more often they do not strike their real pace until they are well beyond the age of fifty. This fact was so astounding that it prompted me to go into the study of its cause most carefully, carrying the investigation over a period of more than twelve years. This study disclosed the fact that the major reason why the majority of men who succeed do not begin to do so before the age of forty to fifty, is their tendency to DISSIPATE their energies through over indulgence in physical expression of the emotion of sex. The majority of men never learn that the urge of sex has other possibilities, which far transcend in importance, that of mere physical expression. The majority of those who make this discovery, do so after having wasted many years at a period when the sex energy is at its height, prior to the age of forty-five to fifty. This usually is followed by noteworthy achievement. The lives of many men up to, and sometimes well past the age of forty, reflect a continued dissipation of energies, which could have been more profitably turned into better channels. Their finer and more powerful emotions are sown wildly to the four winds. (…) The desire for sexual expression is by far the strongest and most impelling of all the human emotions, and for this very reason this desire, when harnessed and transmuted into action, other than that of physical expression, may raise one to the status of a genius.” - Napoleon Hill

“I believe that the processes of life require as an essential a frequent, if not constant, interchange of maleness with femaleness. I believe this takes place within the organism constantly and in proportion to its perfection there is beauty and health. In every cell there is this interchange, and between different cells of the organism there is such an exchange. But just as in-and-in breeding finally “runs out” the strain, and leads to deterioration, so in-and-in exchange of maleness and femaleness - really the same thing - leads to deterioration at last, though many things may assist to delay and postpone the process - change in nourishment, in environment, etc. Therefore the maleness of one person needs exchange with the femaleness of some other person; the femaleness of one with the maleness of another. Homosexuality bases partly on the fact that this exchange may be effected, with more or less satisfaction, sometimes, with persons of the same sex (who, as both sexes are in one, are more or less persons of the opposite sex also) but this too is a form of in-and-in exchange, therefore the normal and best exchange is with persons whose sex is visibly and predominantly opposite to one's own. Man normally goes to woman, woman to man. And even here very opposite temperaments are usually preferred, the smooth by the hairy, the red-headed by the black-haired, the fat, by the lean, etc., because these have existed under very different environments, have fed on different nourishment, which they exchange through sex, and, so still further put away in-and-in exchange and complement each other's lacks - Nature always seeking an equilibrium and redistribution of elements in alternation. This exchange and mutual feeding can be effected in any way in which the sexes can come into each other's aura, but it is most easily effected by touch, and most perfectly by the complete union of Karezza.” - J.W. Lloyd
“Most of my subjects select the bodies of one gender over another 75 percent of the time. This pattern is true of all but the advanced souls, who maintain more of a balance in choosing to be men and women. A gender preference by a majority of earthbound souls does not mean they are unhappy the other 25 percent of the time as males or females. (…) Homosexuals may or may not be comfortable with their anatomy as humans. When I do have a client who is gay, they often ask if their homosexuality is the result of choosing to be 'the wrong sex' in this life. When their sessions are over this inquiry is usually answered. Regardless of the circumstances which lead souls to make gender choices, this decision was made before arriving on Earth. Sometimes I find that gay people have chosen in advance of their current lives to experiment with a sex that was seldom used in former lives. Being gay carries a sexual stigma in our society which presents a more difficult road in life. When this road is chosen by one of my clients, it can usually be traced to a karmic need to accelerate personal understanding of the complex differences in gender identity as related to certain events in their past.” - M. Newton
“A poignant example of someone preparing for a trial is the selection of a homosexual body. Since a predisposition to being a gay or lesbian person is essentially biological and not the result of social learning or environment, these bodies are picked by souls for two basic reasons:

“A male body may be preponderantly negative and a female body may be preponderantly positive. Homosexuality [can] arise from such unbalanced conditions which began in the foetus.” - Walter Russell
“Very often, sex repression and sex neglect will reverse one’s polarity and result in homosexuality. If youth can be instructed regarding the electrical nature of sex and its effects upon individual lives and progress it would be a greater deterrent from promiscuity than merely moral or physical grounds.” - Walter Russell
(todo: electro-chemical influences on the fetal gender due to hormone system disrupting chemicals, sexual confusion-guilt-trauma from religion and broader culture, mother-father psychological complexes)
“The sexual orgasm having an entirely different purpose [than the sexual energy exchange through harmonic copulation], that is, not the nourishment of the two individuals concerned, but the transmission of life and nourishment to another, a new and third organism starting from these two, tends rather to defeat and prevent the nourishment of the two, and is normally limited, usually, to propagation. To indulge in the orgasm frequently, as a mere pleasure and indulgence, is to create a vice - salacity.” - J.W. Lloyd
