Sex

  • “I have an insecure mind feeling lonely and a hormone-loaded body wanting sex. I look for an object to meet my mental-physical need. My love!”

 

  • “Our language, like our mind, is sex-obsessed. It cannot look at an individual as an individual. It must almost always be a ‘He’ or ‘She’.”

 

  • “There is a violence that kills. There is a violence that gives birth. Some idiots call this violence as love-making.”

 

  • “Someone is thinking about Jalebi (a famous sweet of India); someone is thinking about Moksha. One is thinking about sex, the other is thinking about Samadhi.

    It doesn’t matter what you are ‘thinking’ about. To differentiate between thoughts is just morality. One thought is good, one thought is bad; one thought is low, one thought is high. Thought itself is the nemesis.

    Thought itself is the nemesis! Not the object of thought as such.” 

 

  • “Sex gives you an opportunity to forget that. In sex there is such immersion that thoughts stop. When thoughts stop, death stops, because all thought is death oriented. All thought is about the limited and limited is death. So, sex in some way gives you a taste of your own deathless nature.”

 

  • “When sex and physical nearness of all kind start dominating a relationship, then the juice dries down. Now the other is just a body for you. Body for the sake of having sex, body for the sake of upkeep. To treat somebody as a body does not necessarily mean that you are always looking sexually at the other. It also means, that you are concerned with nothing else but the body of the other.”

 

  • “We treat sex as a panacea. We treat sex as a great relief. The expectations that you have from sex are unmatched. You never expect from a pizza what you expect from your girlfriend.”

 

  • “Be it a woman or a man, nobody is really chasing a body. You want that which sits at the center of the body. Penetration is symbolic, you want to reach to the heart. It is not merely a little bit of flesh that you want to dig into. You want to reach right till the heart. And unless you have reached the heart, the sexual activity has gone waste.”

 

  • “Samadhi cannot come as a result of Sambhog (Sex). Samadhi has to be prior to Sambhog. And then Sambhog carries the taste of Samadhi, just as everything else carries the taste of Samadhi. If you want Samadhi through any means, you will be disappointed. People have tried Samadhi through thousand means, they have always been disappointed because no method will ever work. No method can bring you to your natural state, because that is what you already are. The method is the barrier, the method is Maya, the method is the problem. All spirituality is about learning how to drop methods.”

 

  • “Sex tells you that nothing less than a total Samadhi will satisfy you. Those two seconds come, just to tease you. Orgasm comes, just to unsettle you even more. Because it reminds you of what you are missing. Orgasm is such a great disturbance. Orgasm is such a painful reminder; orgasm is such great news.”

 

  • “Sex is beautiful only if you can see the divine in the other. Sex is beautiful only if the body is not just body, but a temple. A temple, at the center of which, God himself sits. Do not try to have sex with someone, you cannot see as a God or a Goddess. If you cannot worship the feet of a woman, if you cannot respect her, if you cannot surrender to the woman, don’t try to have sex. And that is same for the woman too. If you are not looking at the body as the temple, then touching the other is just rape. In fact, almost as a ritual, you must worship before touching. And again, almost as a ritual, you must bow down, after the act. Not push her away and turn to the other side, because you are now finished, done with, and you want to now, snore.”

  • “Sex can either be the most abject humiliation, or the deepest respect.”

 

  • “You are an intellectual, when you have found something more interesting than sex. And when you have found something more interesting than the intellect, then you are spiritual. Then you are Godly.”

 

  • “If sex is sex and food is food, then you are home.”

 

  • “Prakriti is time. Time will continue, so sex will continue. As long as this body is there, sex will be there.”
