One word that magnifies the beliefs we hold about what it is to be sexual and what it is to be pure, or not…
Have you said that word out loud lately? Try it. Say it out loud, slowly.
It’s incredible, language that is. And how a simple word can arouse everything from desire and eroticism to judgment and condemnation.
So which is it?
Is seduction good or bad?
Is it pure or is it sinful?
And is it really so black and white?
Seduction has definitions just as indicting:
According to Wikipedia, “Seduction is the process of deliberately enticing a person, to engage in a relationship, to lead astray…to corrupt, to persuade or induce into engaging in sexual behaviour.”
Of course you likely are familiar with this notion. As am I.
I don’t disagree that seduction can be to corrupt. But, the obvious question I’m probing is: Is this truly the original nature of seduction?
In its origin, the root is “seduco” which simply means “to lead away.” If your woman was to strip down naked and grab you, saying come to bed with me, would this seduction be considered corrupting? Obviously not. But why not? And if not, then what makes seduction corrupting when you deem it to be so?
Define the difference.
TWO SOURCES OF SEDUCTION
It’s commonly known that nearly everything in nature has an inherent opposing counterpart. As every coin has two sides.
Although seduction can be to lead one away in a manner against their best and highest good, I propose there is another form of seduction – one that is dripping wet with glory and goodness and adventure and date I say, erotic ecstasy.
And it has nothing to do with sex. (Although it can, and that would be fun now wouldn’t it?)
If I were to lead you AWAY from anything that was in fact harmful to you, depriving you, limiting you, shaming you, killing you softly – it I were to in fact seduce you in this way, would that be impure?
If I were to lead you TO something incredible, wonderful, lovely and deeply nourishing (and by default away from something else), would this seduction be impure?
IT’S QUITE SIMPLE REALLY
The simple point is:
If I lead you AWAY FROM YOUR SOUL/TRUE SELF, I am seducing you with the intent to manipulate, control, diminish, deceive, to use, etc.
BUT IF I LEAD YOU AWAY FROM THAT WHICH KEEPS YOU FROM YOUR SOUL/TRUE SELF – my seduction is holy.
And this, my beloved, is what I do, it’s who I am.
A holy seduction.
To seduce you to know thyself.
To seduce you to walk in your glory.
To seduce you to liberate your soul from the bondage of a life based on “doing the right thing.”
IS DOING RIGHT, THE RIGHT THING TO DO?
The right thing isn’t doing what you’ve been told. Children do this. You are no longer a child. And you must know yourSelf to know your path. And only then will you know the “right” thing to do.
Women and men have the capacity to seduce to and away. And let me tell you, it’s not always what it seems or appears to be from the outside.
The deceptive form of seduction happens in the “purest” of places. And holy seduction in the most unexpected and even by the most underestimated.
ONE MORE THING
We are never seduced except by that which we desire. If one desires truth, it will find them. If one desires to avoid the truth just a little while longer, deception will overtake them, until they tire of its mindfucking.
Mother Nature is the queen of holy seduction. We could all learn a thing or two from her.
