"Only chastity is linked to personal progress".
I think here of 'chastity' in the widest sense;
'chastity', from the Latin 'castus', i.e., pure.
Sexuality is only 'impure' if one regards sex as 'dirty'.
The word 'castus' is ultimately from the Indo-European root 'kes-', meaning 'to cut'. The original sense was to be 'cut-off, or free from faults'.
What then are our faults?
