How long is anyone in a state of satisfaction? That’s one thing that is so interesting about sex, at least on the male side. Orgasm is the biggest want. You need a big want for a big pain. A big ’out’! It’s a change, more than anything else, out of the usual displeasures. Usually that exhausts a person. Some it can exhaust for a month, others it exhausts for only ten minutes before they’re ready to try that trick again. Normally speaking at least a half an hour of not wanting! They become aware of the Grace of Now. Their body got a good juicing up. So the body is relaxed, the emotions are relaxed too because there are no wants, and mind is also quiet. One becomes conscious of energy. A little bit depleted, but the room takes on a soft quietness, ah, they see the sun coming in through the window. They are sensitive to themselves, to their surroundings. No ’want’ - beautiful! Such an immense subject but it’s just a branch of this conversation so we won’t get into it too much. But maybe we just, in a way, touched the essence of the matter.
Someone might say: ”What’s all this sex thing about?” Well, it has more to do with displeasure than it has to do with love, generally speaking. But then again, you can ’love’ anything. You can love ice-cream if it gets rid of your displeasure for a few minutes. You’d love anything that gives you a little relief. ”I’d love an aspirin!” Without an understanding of energy, doesn’t matter what energy, life is nothing but a see-saw of pleasure and displeasure. When you begin to understand that your little pleasures don’t answer the question of your displeasure, they begin to fade out. Not much hope is left in the imagination. For instance, a junkie taking heroin. It ’helps’ him but after a while he becomes aware that it’s not working anymore. Then the displeasure really screams. He gets really depressed and tries to kill himself. As we get older we begin to see that all those wonderful things that the world offers, that are meant to make us ’feel good’ - don’t work very well, or for very long.
