The purpose of sex, according to ALL of the Mahatma's writings is
to bring children into the world, and when natural cycles (generally
making love around the new moon) are followed the sex impulse is
automatically balanced. The ideas in the quoted paragraph above are
very much askew from the Mahatma's writings on human psychology and
spiritual evolution. The solution, given in esoteric psychology, to any
sex problems is to live a fully active and creative outer life of
service while following natural cycles.
