Excerpt About Genital Hole
Genital Hole and The Absence of EssenceIt is true in that the genital hole signifies not only the absence of space in the normal person's realm of experience, but it also signifies the absence of Essence in its various aspects. As we saw in the section on essential development, space is needed as a ground for the experience of Essence. Even when Essence is experienced before space is integrated, it does not become a permanent experience. It can become a permanent part of our experience only after space is integrated. This phenomenon is understood by most spiritual teachings. So the absence of space also signifies absence or lack of Essence in its various aspects -- such as Strength, Will, Value, Personal Essence, and so on. The genital hole is frequently experienced as associated with these lacks.
