Ok, we’ve probably been over this subject a few times, but …
If a guy wants to go celibate more or less permanently – how should he go about in terms of:
a. transforming sexual energy?
b. dealing with sexual thoughts?
c. other considerations?
Have any of you actually done this? What are the aids and the pitfalls? Essential techniques to learn/master?
Also, do you think it’s true that it can be harmful to go celebate without actively working on transforming sexual energy? I.e, you might get prostate cancer without the proper transformation.

Going celibate is not harmful in any way, even without any transformation of energy.
Transformation of energy : through the regular practices, such as the Microcosmic Orbit, and on.
Dealing with sexual thoughts and temptations ! ah, that’s the point! You may find that you get a lot of balance through the Microcosmic orbit, and you may clear nasty sexual snags through Fusion practice, as you go on, your spiritual energy is more active and occupies more mental space, so sexual worries should decrease, and yet, and yet, they’re still there!
so, what’s the problem? The problem may be with the Three Worms,
The so-called Three Worms, or Three Witches are kind of demons that live in us. They are the powers most responsible for preventing us from achieving ourselves.
The Blood Witch, or the Red one lives by the anus. That’s the one responsible for protracted sexual problems or deviations.
The White Witch is closer to the stomach and deals with food problems as well as mental confusion, while the Green Witch, near the Third eye is responsible for over ambition, jealousy….
They are not external demons, not strangers, but part of ourselves like other shen. The way to deal with them is to transform them into helpful beneficial angels.
I’m not too sure how this is best done, there are different ways. The Inner Smile should work.

By practicing alchemy, the sexual issues are transformed at deeper and deeper levels. the polarity between man and woman, yin and yang is one of the deepest rifts in human consciousness. The times and society we are living in carries loads of unresolved issues, and expectations on how you should be and act.
By slowly merging with the different levels of the consciousness of nature through alchemy (kan and li), you cn slowly bring back the neutral center that was lost in the split between man and woman.
The transformation of sexuality is a long process, in the same way that spiritual transformation is a long process.
The transformation of the Jing is the most difficult but also provides the most lasting results, because it gives substance to the spirit.
Lately, I have been moving the alchemical transformations (kan and li)back down to my Jing center before leaving them to rest in the ower dan tien.
