Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions. Some researchers suggest that emotional intelligence can be learned and strengthened, while other claim it is an inborn characteristic. http://psychology.about.com/library/quiz/bl_eq_quiz.htm

Slut Shaming, Promiscuity, and Healthy Sexuality for Homo sapiens, pt. 2 This is part 2 of an article on slut shaming, promiscuity, and my views on healthy sexuality. Don’t start here! Read part 1 HERE first. In part 1 of this writing, I discussed slut shaming, the practice of denigrating women (and sometimes people of other genders) for having and/or enjoying too much sex.The purpose of the first article was to explain why there is nothing fundamentally wrong with sex, no matter how it’s had or with whom. I explained that we as humans thrive on sex in loving connection with other people that we can trust. I explained that we require neither marriage nor monogamy to achieve this connection, and that those things are only social constructs that are helpful to some but useless or hurtful to others. In this second part, I discuss how Buddhist principles can guide us in creating the conditions necessary for a healthy, adventurous sex life that suits our desires and our innately human impulses. We will focus on what in Buddhism are known as “The Three Treasures”: 1. Buddha: the true, unified, enlightened nature within all beings. 2. Dharma: the teachings of the Buddha; the path to enlightenment. 3. Sangha: the community of our fellow practitioners on the path to enlightenment. We’ll start at number 3: sangha. In the context I’ve spoken about in part 1, sangha means the community of people with whom we practice our healthy sexuality. This community can be as small as a monogamous couple, or a polyamorous community of as many people as want to be there! The important part is that “sangha” refers specifically to our fellow walkers on the path to enlightenment. We cannot have a healthy sangha of people who are not seeking to be the best they can be: to be compassionate, honest, loving, and seeking only the best for everyone. Likewise, we cannot have a healthy sexual relationship with anyone who is not loving toward us, who is not compassionate to our experience, who cannot or will not be honest with us, and who does not want the best for us. It’s not that we cannot have sex with people who do not feel this way toward us. Most of us will, over the course of our lives, have one or more sex partners who do not meet these standards at all. But like the principle of karma (law of cause-and-effect), we can only expect that the result of sex with such people will be like eating food that we know contains unhealthy ingredients, or like meditating with people who care nothing for our wellbeing. Next is number 2: dharma. The dharma is the entirety of Buddhist teachings, or instructions on the way to end suffering. Given how much suffering comes from sex with the wrong people, it is especially fitting to apply the dharma to this part of our lives. The Buddhist canon is enormous and wonderful. For our purposes here, though, we’ll stick to the basics: attachment and mindfulness. Attachment is what happens when we latch onto something mentally. Anything can be a focus for attachment, from money to love to our morning coffee. If we fixate on that thing and imagine it to be “mine,” then we have attached to it. Then, when we inevitably lose that thing (and we eventually lose everything), we suffer. What’s more, our suffering multiplies. When we get sad or mad or afraid or hurt, we act in ways that hurt others and cause them to suffer as well. We often attach to other people whom we want to love us or like us, and the suffering that comes from this is pretty familiar to most everyone. But sex is deeply connected to love. Sex is not just about romantic love, but about the human-to-human love of two people becoming physically and psychologically intimate. As I explained in part 1, we humans and our primate ancestors have relied upon sex for the purpose of bonding since basically forever. So what happens when we engage in sex in the absence of that most basic type of selfless love? We see sex as something that is “mine,” that can be used to make “me” feel better, more desirable, more loved, more accepted, more powerful, more ANYTHING. When we have sex without the primary intent of giving loving care and trust to another, we have attached and will therefore suffer. When we have sex with someone else who lacks that purity of feeling and intention toward us, we have propagated attachment and suffering. Attachment to sex comes from our instinctive expectation of the outcome being at least basic human love. And since sex today is almost never met with the kind of communal love that we as humans have evolved to depend upon, we are left unsatisfied at best, and usually hurt and fearful of the future. We respond to this lack of love mostly in one of two ways. Many of us get frustrated, reject sex and love together, and shut down our sexuality completely, leading to a state of constant, low-level anxiety and depression about sex. Others of us reject the connection between sex and love and begin throwing our sexuality out at people in the desperate hope that someone will respond to it and give us the caring safety we so deeply, instinctually crave. This latter behavior of hyper-sexuality is insidious because it can seem like we are “reclaiming” our sexuality, making it work for us and enjoying sex for just the most basic physical pleasure, without risk of being hurt or exploited by anyone. But what we are really doing is cutting out the part of sex that, left unsatisfied, is too painful for us to bear. We are then left with whatever pleasure we can still take from other people in this greatly anesthetized act. It is akin to breaking our foot and, not knowing how to set it to heal, we stop the pain by severing the nerves connecting it to the leg. We then stand proudly on the numb hunk of meat, shouting at everyone we meet that we are “reclaiming” our leg as a kickstand. Buddhism teaches us that mindfulness alleviates suffering. When we act mindfully, we act in the present moment of reality, accepting things as they are, without needing to enforce what we think “should” be. When we are comfortable in the present moment, we act intentionally, care-fully, and our innate desire to create love and reduce suffering comes out of us. On the other hand, when we strip the human love and connection from sex, it becomes a mostly mindless pursuit—something we do out of discomfort and need, based on reflex and hunger. Anesthetized sexuality never fulfills the connections that we are hardwired to need, so we pursue physical pleasure somewhat indiscriminately because, hey, what else is sex good for anymore? When we treat something as deep as our sexuality without mindfulness, we will always wind up more damaged than when we began. We will also end up harming others in the process, who will go on to harm still more people. We become a source of spreading suffering. So this brings us back to number 1: Buddha. In sex, as in everything, we must respect the true nature of each person as a living being. We must respect that all people crave and need and seek a support network of deep love and trust. We must recognize that most people don’t even know what’s missing from their sexual expressions, and that we have great power to harm them and ourselves if we are care-less. We may sleep with whomever we choose, but we must always choose to do so, with our heart and our mind fully engaged in the choice and the act, honest about our intentions. We must be aware that we will touch someone else on a very deep level, even if we’re calling it “just casual.” Likewise, that person will touch us deeply, even if we tell ourselves “it’s no big thing.” If we’re going to open that part of ourselves to others, we must respect our true nature as living beings. We must be sexual intentionally and with compassion for ourselves and our potential partners. We must seek to leave any sexual partner better off than when we met them, understanding that what they need is what we need: love and community. To very loosely paraphrase: “Do whom you will. Harm none.” ~J

While it's becoming easier to talk about homosexuality and porn in the church, Christians who secretly struggle with other versions of perversity--such as bestiality and child molesting--have a hard time finding anyone who will show them compassion. Why does God leave some souls in this tormented state? Because He is equipping them for a very special kind of work. If you're one of the souls stuck in this most miserable place, it is essential that you read this post.
