"The abuse of sexual energy can certainly cause disease, whether physically, psychologically, or otherwise. Just because someone may be retaining sexual energy, that does not change the presence of lust, obsession, desire, addiction, ambition, pride, etc., any of which can be using that sexual energy for their purposes. Stated simply, retention of sexual energy is only one part of real chastity and white tantra. What causes disease? Karma."
If we try to follow the practices and we are careful with expressions..Can we say we are not just retaining the sexual energy?
Is the EGO called Karma? If the EGO ( desires, lust, pride ) is the responsible for every disease?
Could the sexual energy retention assist for chastity ( if we practice, keep our centres on a balanced way ) ? Could the sexual energy feed lust ? (if we don't live the three important factors, do not practice, do not keep our centres on a balanced way)
