The Living Force
That's a very interesting way to think about it.. it reminded of the Truth perspective show from last week about free will, they were discussing that (more or less) there is freedom of will... but we're also beholden to certain rules that are unavoidable. And I never thought to conceptualize it as a god, namely that one of the most pervasive and universal impulses is a force that acts through us or rather, that it makes us act in a certain way.Calling "libido" a "life force" or a "god" is true enough from a pragmatic perspective, IMO. Sex has been ruling plants, animals, and humans since the beginning of time, for the purposes of reproduction of corporeal life. I think this is what Mouravieff described as the Absolute III -- the 'god' of this world, unless and until individuals choose to align oneself with one step higher: the Absolute II.
Whenever we witness that the misuse of that kind of energy is not just detrimental, but in some cases catastrophic, we may conclude that it is a very, very powerful force, and that greatest care has to be exerted in dealing with it. A proper, truthful education about this force, early in life, would certainly help -- including the description of possible alternatives, which should be as fundamental and viable.
When you observe yourself and others and realize how much the sexual aspect affects the way you perceive the world, what you perceive or pay attention to and how you behave.. it makes it obvious how much it runs the world. It reminded me of something Gurdjieff said once about people who go to Church for the same reason they'd go to a club... sex.
