Mystery of Sexual Ecstasy and Union

if anyone asks you,
'how the perfect satisfaction
of all our sexual wanting will look?'
lift your face and say,
like this!

if anyone wonders,
'how Jesus raised the dead!'
don't try to explain the miracle.
kiss me on the lips,
like this!

when some one asks,
'what it means to die for love?'
point here!

when lovers moan,
they are telling our story.
like this!

- Embracing the Mystery - Rumi, version by Coleman Barks

And the companion of [the saviour was] Mary Magdalene. [Christ loved] her more than [all] the disciples, [and used to] kiss her [often]. - Gospel of Philip

The Nag Hammadi texts also spoke of the intimate relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus, even referring to her as his "beloved."

The Baal Shem Tov asked why people love children so much. His answer was that a child is a human being who is still very close to his or her conception, and since there was so much ecstasy in the conception, it still shows in the child. As the child grows older, the ecstasy slowly evaporates. But it is a state that the child loves in herself or himself, while it lasts.

Ecstasy facilitates incarnation, in the sense that it is ecstasy that teases a soul into coming to this plane of existence. The teasing is necessary because no soul wants to come down here. But it is part of the human process that men and women meet in this lower world; love one another; pass into joy, ecstasy, oneness with one another; and thus cause sparks to emerge. And those sparks attracts souls from the higher worlds, which allow themselves to be teased into this world again. - Rabbi Zalman Scachter-Shalomi in First Steps to a New Jewish Spirit

Men are deeply attracted to women ... the worldly pleasures of wanting and having. God's grace brings in through them another beauty. The lesson is that we should look to the outcome and not be so occupied with the attraction. You have noticed how a beautiful child can sometimes derived from a diseased, repulsive woman? Lust alone did not create the child's handsomeness. God comes in through our pleasures and through our suffering.

Without the divine enhancement that arrives in the urgency of human desiring, people might look like mud-colored camels lying on bare ground. Basically people are donkeys concerned only with the straw and barley they're eating, until the presence of grace makes them otherwise. - Bahauddin, Father of Rumi

The relationship of Radha and Krishna is the embodiment of love, passion and devotion. Radha's passion for Krishna symbolizes the soul's intense longing and willingness for the ultimate unification with God. Shri Krishna is the soul of Radha and Radha is definitely the soul of Shri Krishna. She is the undivided form of Shri Krishna. She will remain a mystery unless one can know her inexpressible divine elements.

Shri Krishna is not only the ultimate object of all love, but also is the topmost enjoyer of all loving relationships. Therefore, in the dynamic and expanding form of Krishna, He has unlimited desires to enjoy spiritual loving relationships known as leela. To do this, He expands Himself into the dual form of Krishna and Radha, His eternal consort and topmost devotee. In other words, Radha is the feminine aspect of Lord Krishna and is non-different from Krishna, but together (both the masculine and feminine aspects). They fulfill the purpose of engaging in sublime loving leela to exhibit supremely transcendental loving exchanges.

Radha Krishna is the original principle of loving relationships (conjugal Love). The sex principle exists in the Absolute in its pure form without any inebriety or impurity, because Krishna is in fact Radha. In other words, the Lord is one, but for His pleasure and enjoyment, He expands himself to enjoy loving relationships. The original expansion is Radha. Together, Radha and Krishna enjoy eternal pastimes of transcendental love.

Sex is a fire kindling at two points: in the tree-green sap-wet semen of a man and in the smoldering womb of a woman. If love for the man is not deep inside her there, no lovemaking flame will rise.
- Bahauddin Valad in The Drowned Book by Coleman Barks and John Moyne

And among God's signs is this, that God has created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquillity with them; and God has put love and mercy between you. Verily in that are signs for those who reflect. - The Quran 30:21
