22 people answered the poll questions, and another 10 people contributed with
various helpful and interesting comments.
All but 3 people posted to the list.
To the first question : "How many of us feel that our K awakening had
anything to do with celibacy. (celibacy being defined as having no sexual
partner for an extended length of time)," seven people replied that celibacy
might have been a factor in triggering K as they were celibate at the time,
but only three among these answered yes to the question. 14 people answered
no--a large majority. One replied N/A, having been born awakened. One
person mentioned intense sexual activity before her awakening.
To the 2nd question: "How many of us became intentionally celibate after K
awakening," two people replied that K compelled them to become celibate, and
one person said she became intentionally celibate. One person used short
term celibacy to increase K activity. Two others who did not respond
directly to the poll questions seem to feel that celibacy is advisable to
conserve the energy for spiritual development--while others feel there is a
limitless supply of K energy.
To the 3rd question: "For those who are sexually active, do you find that
sexual activity affects your K energy one way or another?"
Sexual activity seems to have varied affects on K depending on the person and
the situation. One person said her entire concept of sexuality changed. Six
replied that sex can expand or inhibit K depending on partners or whether or
not one ejaculates. One person said it balances her, and another said it
increases K activity. Two people tried to use it to control K energy, with
Thanks to all of you for such a great response. Perhaps it is the buildup of
sexual energy, whether through celibacy or sexual expression that affects K
energy and spirituality.
