God-Giving and
God-Living

Godliving und Godgiving are Komaja’s original methods for sexual abstinence. The aim of sexual abstinence is to bring into consciousness and accept the driving and animalistic forces within the human being, to spiritualise those forces and to achieve higher consciousness. With the help of abstinence, sexual energy is to be brought from the area of the sexual organs to the forehead or crown chakra. In this way, accelerated development of the human brain can be achieved.

What is the advantage of the Komaja methods compared with other, similar methods e.g. Christian celibacy or Hindu brahma­carya?  With this methods, in a psychological sense, developing suppression of sexual energy and all the resulting negative consequences is rather unlikely. It is known that many schizophrenic diseases develop in puritanical families, where sex is considered a sin and physical passion is not allowed. Thus Godliving and Godgiving are techniques which Komaja offers to young as well as to elder people.

Sex which has not sufficiently been made conscious commands a huge amount of nervous, vital and psychic energy. If we do not engage in sex, but abstain in the proper way, we receive a surplus of energy. In our psycho-physical system something similar to a nuclear reactor when a critical mass is reached takes place. When the human being succeeds in remaining in love, “hormones” of joy and enthusiasm develop in high amounts, as well as “hormones” which enable Kundalini-Shakti, the Holy Spirit, to express itself more easily through our endocrine and nervous system. That is the essence of Godliving:
Godliving - "God living". Superficially, this method most resembles Christian celibacy and Hindu brahmacharya, because the godgiving person abstains from any sexual activity, having as a goal the realisation of God throughout his/her soul and body. Godliving differs fundamentally from Hindu brahmacharya and Christian celibacy in the following two features:

  1. the godliving person is allowed to perform Loving i.e. Love Meditation,
  2. the godliving person is allowed – because of Komaja’s specific approach to sexuality 

("Sex is the holiest, divine activity of human beings"), even to use images of sexual unification in his/her meditations – of course only in so far as this inner activity causes a) the humidity of the eyes and the mucous membrane of the nose to increase, b) fine, good-tasting saliva to be produced, c) the entire body to fill with life force and to engender a feeling of complete gratification and comfort.  Furthermore, the heart chakra should radiate unlimited and unconditional love towards everything and everybody; the human being should become conscious of his/her radiating aura and consequently of his/her unity with all-embracing life; and the feeling of an individual “I” should disappear.  Godliving above all means two things: - The human being lives only for God; he/she devotes his/her whole life completely to God.  And as a consequence of this devotion, God manifests Himself completely through the human soul and body, consistent with the level of development the person in question has attained.  That means, God lives through that human being. Thus, living in Godliving - in the highest sense of the word - is possible only for God embodied.

Godgiving – the giving or devoting of one’s entire self and thus also one’s sexuality to God. This method allows sexual caressing, but under precisely determined conditions. This means e.g. the godgiving person is by no means allowed to have an orgasm.
