For you are a temple of the living God.
(2 Corinthians 6:16b WEB)
So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and of the household of God, being built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief cornerstone; in whom the whole building, fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.
(Ephesians 2:19-22 WEB)
You may have seen people put their palms together in front of their chest and tip their head down toward someone while saying “namaste.” The word means “the god in me greets the god in you,” or “I bow to the divine in you,” or “I acknowledge the space in you in which the entire universe dwells.” It’s a wonderful way of recognizing what today’s scripture tells us; that we are all temples of the Holy Spirit, the siblings of Christ, divine sons and daughters.
This reality has tremendous implications for sexual activity. When we come together and our beings become one, the divinity within intermingles. The Spirit which is separately within us becomes one again with the thing which is separate. The Holy Spirit rejoins itself as it meets in the other soul. The two who are four become three who are one.
Lovemaking is the ultimate namaste. Or it should be.
God is that which is constantly becoming “element,” drawing all things through love into fullness of being. God incarnate invests Godself organically with all of creation, immersing [Godself] in things, in the heart of matter and thus unifying the world. This investment of divinity in materiality is the Christ. The universe is physically impregnated to the very core of its matter by the influence of this divine nature. Everything is physically “christified,” gathered up by the incarnate Word as nourishment that assimilates, transforms, and divinizes. The world is like a crystal lamp illumined from within by the light of Christ. For those who can see, Christ shines in this diaphanous universe, through the cosmos and in matter.
