What is ultimate pleasure?
The secretions of the pineal, in the yogic terminology is referred to as ‘Amruta’ because once it begins secretion everything about you becomes sweet and beautiful, It is not the sexuality which limits it but it’s the excessive identity with the physicality which limits it, If you make it too big you will become perverted in your head.
If you try to obliterate it , you will become even more perverted in your mind, A ninety two year old man went to his doctor for a full medical checkup, The doctor checked him up and he said ‘hey old boy , for your age you are just doing great , Everything is just fine with you.’ But the man asked , but doctor , What about my sex life?
So the doctor asked, Thinking about it or dreaming about it ? The ,more you try not to think about something the more you will think about it. This is the nature of that mind So there are many reasons why one indulges in sex For some it is just pleasure, for some it is the way of building this bond and companionship , otherwise people feel they are going away from each other.
They may be just fine but a lot of people it is psyched in their mind that if they are not sexually involved they are actually moving away , not true You can be very close to somebody and need not to be involved in any physical manner isn’t it? But society are psyching. Especially in this part of the world peoples are hugely psyched
If there is no sexuality you don’t really have a relationship, In fact the word relationship it took me sometime to understand that here if you say a ‘relationship’ you are supposed to understand it’s Sex-based relationship, Nothing else is a relationship, if I can have a very strong relationship with you and not be concerned about your body isn’t it?
I may not be drawn to your body in anyway, but I can have very powerful relationship with you but all those possibilities are completely discounted, A relationship means you must be in some way physically involved; man-woman or man-man , woman-woman , whatever you like Essentially it’s body based.
What kind of body is individual choices, but it is essentially body based this has happened because somewhere our identification with the body has gone beyond normal levels of identity , It is excessive identification of body , That is why body-based relationship have become the crux of the society . One who is too identified with your physically body naturally is sex-driven
Because that is the highest thing that he knows , There are ways we can make you find something which Is far bigger than this, once you taste something better , I don’t have to tell you give this up or give that up, it’ll anyway fall of, isn’t it? There are ways to do certain sadhana which is more intense than sexuality, which is more ecstatic than sexuality .
On one level if you look at it all dimensions of yoga, one way or the other are ultimately trying to activate the pineal because once it begins it secretion everything about you becomes sweet and beautiful It creates a whole inner pleasure which makes all the outer pleasure look like kindergarten stuff.
That’s the reason yogis are just sitting with eyes closed, Not because they are against pleasure, they are against small pleasure , that’s all , So Shambhavi Mahamudra one thing that’s happening is it stimulates the pineal secretion in the big way, which leaves you drenched in a certain level of sweetness through out the day.
It just leaves you in a certain state of ecstasy and blissfulness because the pineal gland is active , this is one aspect of your physiology which is very close to consciousness ,m rest of the physiology is about survival, But pineal gland is one aspect of your physiology which is very, very close to transcending the physical.
In the yogic traditions this sweetness is referred to as Amruta or the ambrosia or the elixir of life, One drop if it comes into the system , suddenly the whole system just cools down the whole system is just lubricated , functions at ease the desperation in the system is gone, The desperation in the mind is gone , so Ambrosia means you found your own pleasure.
If you are extremely joyful within yourself , you’ve found the Amrutha within yourself.. You are extremely , you are in extreme state of pleasantness now being with people, not anymore squeezing pleasure out of them. Being with people is just out of them, Only now you are truly capable of love otherwise it is just ‘Open Sesame ‘ trick ‘I Love you’ means
Whether believe you or not , for that moment they make themselves believe you because they are also in need of something , you are also in need of something , isn’t it? It’s like , you know ali baba and the 40…? Open Sesame means it opens. This is just like that – I love you means many things open up.
Now by doing this.. I am not saying it’s right or wrong , that’s the way people conduct their life , there’s nothing to it. But by doing this, the true possibility of knowing an intense sense of love within you is lost, You are here constantly looking, what can I get out of this person? This is a con job. It’s called a love affair , but it’s con job.
But if you are extremely ecstatic by yourself when you are being with people , It’s about sharing your ecstasy, it is about if they are not touched by it somehow to touch them with it rather than seeing what you can squeeze out of them, the whole fundamentals of your life will change ,Does sexual indulgence restrict the secretion of Amrutha?
Yes and no , in the sense it is not the sexuality which limits it, but it’s the excessive identity with the physicality which limits it , so it is not sexuality per see which becomes the barrier, but the attachment it creates to the physicality which definitely becomes the barrier, This question is coming from certain amount of bits and pieces, the gossip that you heard about
How you could assimilate your own semen and raise it up to your higher possibility, yes it’s true at the same time , it is not because of abstinence that one does it, it is because of internalizing your energies that you do it , it is not simply that somebody is abstaining from sex and suddenly his energies are all organized and it’s going up, it’s not true.
If your energies get organized and begin to move up, the need for sexuality may evaporate for you, but it doesn’t leave you incapable. It doesn’t leave you impotent , but the need is gone It is just no more a compulsive thing. And it is not just this one thing all compulsiveness is lost , Essentially most of the sexuality that’s happening on the planet is happening
Because of certain compulsiveness , isn’t it? It’s a compulsive drive when you become conscious when all compulsiveness disappears , this also disappears. It is just that because people are so body-oriented they are always thinking spirituality versus sexuality, they are not connected, they are not connected one is body and other is different dimension.
It is simply because people are so…because religions of the world , moral schools and the ethical schools have been always speaking against it , it has become such a big issue in people’s mind , they think the only way to know something beyond is you must be away from this because somewhere you are not able to accept the simple biology of human being..
Which is a tragedy that you cannot accept the simple biology , you either have to celebrate it or you have to push it down the drain – both are needed , you can look at it for the limitation that it is and for the possibility that it is so because of the impurity of sex your spirituality is going to get disturbed , I want you to know that your very birth is impure.
When you come from such an impure birth, where is the possibility for you? There is no possibility for you , only if you fell from somewhere else , if the stork drooped you there is some possibility of you becoming spiritual, if your mother had a normal birth you have no possibility
A 6 year old girl came home one day from school and asked ‘Mumma , how was I born?’ the mother was embarrassed She said ‘ A stork dropped you’ She said okay , she noted down, Mumma how were you born? ‘ A stork dropped me too’ Mumma how was Grandmama born? ‘A stork dropped her to’
Then the girl became serious , and she went down and sat down and started writing something in homework, then the mother was feeling uncomfortable , she finished her cooking and then the girl had finished her homework and left the book there, she went and read so the essay was about family tree.
So the girl had written , ‘ For three generations In my family , nobody had a natural birth.’ So because of absurd ideas , either we exaggerate something or we try to unnecessarily play it down it has a certain role in your life, if you make it too big you will become perverted in your head, if you try to obliterate it , you will become even more perverted in your mind
After all , I am writing – this is kind of energy , you are watching this – this is kind of energy , these are different expression of the same life energy , isn’t it? Now sexuality is also another expression of same energy, now one has to decide how much of his energy , in which direction , he wants to end it , because after all you are limited amount of energy, isn’t it?
See it’s just like , you have an income… Lets say you have $5000 a month how much for the house rent, how much for eating , how much for schooling , how much just for fun how much for vacation – you apportion , isn’t it? Tomorrow morning , you got your salary in the evening , you went out and blew it up
Now the next month is going to trouble isn’t it? Of course you have a credit card but.. Everything in your life , if you’re handling your life sensibly , everything in your life is apportioned according to your understanding your need and your capability, isn’t it so? Your money , time , energy , isn’t everything allotted , the way you like to arrange it?
This is also the same thing – how much of it? First of all do you need it? Or are you doing it because of socially you are psyched ? If there is a need , if I ask you to stop it you will become perverted , because it will happen in your head, if somebody is telling you, ‘ You have to do it! , If you don’t do it, you are not normal ,’ Another kind of perversion will come , Both are not needed
After all , you are not going after a man or woman, you are going after a certain level of pleasantness so once you experience a certain level of pleasantness wouldn’t you like to dig deeper into this? Because whatever pleasantness happened, maybe you used the other person but the pleasantness happened within you right?
So, suppose anyway the pleasantness is happening within you , the other person is just a key to open this wouldn’t you like to have key in your own hands? Yes? That if you sit like this , you are on full scale, you don’t need anybody.. Anything in your life either for pleasure, money , love it doesn’t matter whatever, the moment you become dependent on another person, nobody in this planet is truly reliable.
