Thank you for your question. 🙂
i don’t believe “denying’ is the right word.
Let me go to the point. In BK gyan (knowledge) Those who have experienced the “Golden age” which means the first 1250 years of the cycle of time; have “sanskaras” (predisposition) of “purity.” (for lack of a better term.)
In other words, those souls have experienced a different degree of “purification” which is based on the experience of soul consciousness.
Sex lust is in the realm of body consciousness.
It should be no “secret” that any major religion promotes celibacy among those closer to their ‘clergy,’ or at least periods of celibacy to “get in tune” with God or the Divine.
Have you ever wondered why?
Simply because “our needs” for sexual gratification unfortunately bring many side effects which are not encouraged in a deep spiritual life.
Let me give you some examples: Diseases, unwanted pregnancy, addiction, violence and let us not forget… lust and attachment. However for many, that is “normal.”
Unfortunately individuals nowadays are not even in tune with the amount of living energy lost in those “recreational” sexual acts (many times without even deep feelings of beauty) and how much out of control their craving becomes which turns easily into an addiction.
For the record, “sex-lust” is not a human need like food and shelter. You can live without sex lust, and as a matter of fact, many human beings live like that in many religions. The question then is:
Why some people cannot live without sex lust? 🙂
Basically, we go back to those “sanskaras” mentioned above. A “golden age” soul has no issues following celibacy. That soul will feel in tune with it. Others, on the other hand may not, and some others may try the “lifestyle” and “fight” to find out later that it is not for them.
Different roles, different “sankaras.” All good.
Therefore, the standards of “Brahma Kumaris” may seem “high” for some or “repressive” for others. However, those are the “normal” standards of a Golden age soul.
As simple as that.
