Vatican Psychiatrist- Celebacy is a way of standing against a false view of sexuality, and marriage

(Chastity South Africa; c.f. CathNews 22/10/08; Catholic News Service 20/10/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Dr Manfred Lutz, psychiatrist to the Congregation for the Clergy- said that the vocation of celibacy is not only at utmost a practice required in utmost necessity in the role of many within the church- but powerfully- a permanent protest against mass superficiality, within large parts of modern culture. He noted that those who cannot live chastely- should not marry. He appealed those who still do maintain otherwise- that marriage was about more than sex, and that those who view the role of a woman in a relationship as to satisfy sexual ideas- often cannot stand natural and good practices such as celibacy.

The true emotions, and feelings- to understand is to be able to control

(Chastity South Africa)

Article by Marc Aupiais

When we are brought under the waves of sin, and feel them eat away at the breach like cold, deathly acid- we truly must know that our control of our self, and self awareness, and comprehension are intimately connected, like two souls destined to be one, yet living chastely within prayer and God.

Now the mind is not the soul, we know already that the soul is our invisible part closest to our Loving source- Life, whose being, perfection and essence, we call God.

The mind is the body- moulded by her fabric- edited by evolution, or whatever manner God made us in. Original sin does not make our deepest nature evil- rather- it causes us to weaken.

When we are fighting for breath while drowning in the oceans of temptation, and feeling a tide, not our own pulling us back out to sea- so strongly that it feels as though it were our own desire- we know intuitively if at all- that we must fight the tide least we are carried out to sea- and the subtle connection between God and soul is broken as we can no longer resonate his substance with our own.

Our war is between Reality and illusion, and so the more real we are- so also the more Godly, but when we follow desires which truly are not natural, when we endorse these illusions as though they were real and ours- we commit the sin they are named after, and become less real. We possibly only become less resonating- as with venial (Latin Venia- Forgiveness) sin. When we sin mortally- the gash is deep, and causes the connection to for all intensive purposes break.

Now- when we are tempted by this ocean of sin- let us firstly define what we truly want- what natural desires are combining, and being twisted by illusion and weakness- to appear to be a desire which is not ours.

Whether the desire for happiness- which ultimately all desires are a manifestation of, or that for comfort, or that for desire.

We look at what we truly feel and aim for her purpose- we get angry- sometimes because things are not as we believe they should be, and sometimes because it is an evolutionary desire to defend our self.

We often see people who could or have hurt us as evil- this is because our body sees that which is harmful to it as ugly, or as evil- quite naturally. It is this form of judgement, as with judging based on another's wealth- something we fear for empathy- which is so dangerous.

Now, when we define what we truly feel, and why we feel this- we do not endorse the sinful desire- and never become guilty of what sin ultimately is- treating something as something it is not!

Sometimes habits are sourced in habit- but what is the trigger, is it a wrong perception, or is it because we have lied to our body through treating something as something it is not. Seeking pleasure of a sexual nature tells our body that someone is our spouse. Human beings are designed by God for lifelong marriage.

Now, there is the false argument that what animals do is what is natural for man, but this is wrong- what animals do with temporary souls- is what is beneficial to their physical form, man has an eternal (Aeviternal technically- only God is eternal) soul, and this means his self is greater than that of an animal.

Animals eat of their own kind, rabbits commit infanticide, and hippos also.

Dogs naturally seek many partners, but only when they are on heat- what is most natural for an animal is what is most beneficial to its entirety, but animals are infinitely different from man- their current souls are temporary, like their bodies are, like our bodies are.

Man is soul and body- the soul being the invisible part of the body most like God- and it is by the actions of the body that the soul, which is part of the form is effected. Man must work forward- so as to protect his self- which is body and soul. What is natural for man is that which is of benefit to him!

Now- when faced with sin- it is not sinful to say it is this or that and resist it- and fight it- for indeed- the definitions of sin are definitions of the form illusion takes- and we define it to conquer it in the confessional, but when fighting it- it is always good to show it is not our desire, but rather an illusion that we sin in ever endorsing.

The Moon and the tides, and the effect of morality, soul and form

(Journey in a Broken World, Chastity South Africa)

Article by Marc Aupiais

When the moon rises, we watch in awe sometimes at the beauty of her reflective luminescence.

When the moon is full, or crescent, or in any part of the cycle- the tides of the blessed oceans are affected by her magnetic magic. When we look at our own effect, we must remember the moon, and how our every action indirectly affects others, and how our own glow can silently glow in the night sky, and be reflected on the waves- which hide countless creatures- some deadly, some friends of ours.

When we classify an animal as evil- we really mean that it could harm us- as people- what can harm us is inside of our evolutionary library as ugly, or as evil. What is beautiful is what seems most healthy. This is why faith saves- because a correct connection with reality- sanity as we call such- is what determines how we view our surrounds and how we also act on them.

The soul also is much like this- with God as our moon- and our soul as the magnetic field- causing the tides of sprinkling, swaying waves below to dance upon the beach, and throughout the ocean as the clock which shows us life. The body in this is the ocean- both are one phenomena- through the body- we see the magnetism of life- of our soul, yet the actions of the body are equally of this phenomena- as both are the same unit- the soul is like magnetism on the ocean of our body, and the body affects the connection the soul has with God.

Now the moon is beautiful- because it gives us light in darkness- and beauty is actually in its perfection- the measure of how useful we see something as. God therefore is utterly beautiful. When we instill morals- we are not attempting to force our morals on others- rather we acknowledge just how easily broken the connection between our body and God is, and how this connection is our soul. When we do right- the magnetism strengthens- and our unseen part which is closest to unseen God becomes a powerful channel and conduction of grace- which is in fact life, breath- into our body- so that the magnetism- the soul animates the tides, and waves- which are our seen bodies. When this connection is observed- it is so fragile and breakable- and because the magnetism is eternal, but the waves temporary-

Chastity South Africa- You are your body!

(Chastity South Africa)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Theologically- we are fully body and fully soul. The soul is the life, the body that which is given life by the soul. Before conception we have souls, life much like the animals do- temperal, not eternal- but at conception we are made permanent- aeviternal is the better word. Biblically- the soul is often used to denote the body and soul- the self of a man!

For now- our bodies are temperal- because if they were aeviternal- we would not be able to return to God. The body of a man is the only thing apart from the spiritual which can influence his soul. We cannot be saved or condemned apart from the actings of our own body. At birth- we are weakened by the lack of grace known as original sin- this is why the fear exists of many souls going straight to hell- however- in addition to our physical actions, and physical thoughts- is what we are planning to do, or would do given the chance- and this too has a ghostly effect on our lives, on our souls.

Life is more complex than many think it is- God for instance is pure Life. That means life is more than pure animation. The word animation in fact comes from the Latin word for soul- anima. We say rather- the soul and the life of a being are one thing.

When we speak of the form of one's body- we speak of something which is also utterly connected with the soul. The human person is designed that way- we interact with the world with our bodies- and are as much our body as we are our soul.

When we feel we cannot control the weakness of our body, we are lying to ourselves. Our body is ourself- we are perfectly in control when we sin. It does not make it harder or easier, but so far as we know what we are doing, know it is wrong, and are awake enough to comprehend, and alter our actions- we are responsible for our actions.

When the body has a desire- this desire is entered into with our entire self to some degree. When our desires of evil exist- we know this is purely the twisting of desires once good- but no longer so. Like the Orcs in Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings, who were once elves, and wondrous- evil is not the opposite of good- but the mutation of it- so that it is no longer as it is.

When our body has a desire- when our mind or emotions desire something- we must ask of the source of it- if the source is the same as the desire, and it is good- perhaps we have found the source- otherwise- when a desire is evil- the body does not desire something evil- even as the mind might be disposed by our past, or weakness to believe that it desires evil. It rather- either continues old habits, or believes lies we have told it, or tells us something we misunderstand, or take too heavily.

When we desire to do evil- we must view the good which has been twisted, and maligned into this desire- we must endorse this good, and focus on our breathing, and on the good- and purposely manifest the good desire apart from the evil we have been deluded into thinking is our body's desire, and push the evil desire away- be enlarging the good- and by prayer, sacraments- and the purpose of good.

Desires, and actions are not the same thing. To endorse a desire however is an action, and to fight one also is. To have an evil desire is only sin- if we do not immediately try to combat it when we realize what is happening in some valid extent. Not every desire should be acted on- for instance- the body might desire more food - having already eaten- but this is because we have lied to it, by eating too much in the past, or simply the natural desire to preserve the body's life. All desires should be dealt with in right proportion, some followed, some avoided.

When we next are tempted to sin- we must realize, we are not purely spiritual, we are also physical- otherwise we could not be judged on physical actions we take.
