In sacred sexuality, the word semen has a much deeper and profound meaning that the words as used in everyday language. In common usage, the wordusually means, “The smaller, usually motile male reproductive cell of most organisms that reproduce sexually.” Yet, this usage is relatively recent, and ignores the true importance of the word.
The English wordoriginally meant 'seed of male animals' in the 14th century, and it was not applied to human males until the 18th century. It came from Latin , “seed of plants,” from serere `to sow.' The Latin goes back to the Indo-European root *se-, source of seed, disseminate, season, seminar, and seminal. The word seminary (used for religious schools) is derived from and originally meant ‘seedbed.’
That theis the source of all virtue is known from the word “seminal,” derived from the Latin “ ,” and which is defined as “highly original and influencing the development of future events: a seminal artist; seminal ideas.”
In the esoteric tradition of pure sexuality, the wordrefers to the sexual energy of the organism, whether male or female. This is because male and female both carry the "seed" within: in order to create, the two "seeds" must be combined.
"Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." - 1 John 3:9
“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many [offspring]; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.” – Galatians 3:16
“Being born again, not of corruptible σπορά [seed, semen], but of incorruptible, by the Logos of Theos, which liveth and abideth for ever.” - 1 Peter 1:23
“According to Yogic science,exists in a subtle form throughout the whole body. It is found in a subtle state in all the cells of the body. It is withdrawn and elaborated into a gross form in the sexual organ under the influence of the sexual will and sexual excitement. An Oordhvareta Yogi (one who has stored up the seminal energy in the brain after sublimating the same into spiritual energy) not only converts the into Ojas, but checks through his Yogic power, through purity in thought, word and deed, the very formation of by the secretory cells or testes or seeds. This is a great secret.” - Sri Swami Sivananda, Brahmacharya (Celibacy)
Smen: In the ancient Egyptian language, smen means “order, foundation," or “to be established or founded upon.” Compare with Simon in the Gospel:
He [Jesus] saith unto them, “But whom say ye that I am?”
And Simon Peter answered and said, “Thou art the, the Son of the living God.”
And Jesus answered and said unto him, “Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”
And I say also unto thee, “That thou art Peter [Petra: rock], and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Amen Smen: the Egyptian Paradise.

[There is] treasure to be desired and שמן [oil] in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up [through]. - Proverbs 21:20
