Analysis of sexual attraction

Do you like to steal? Do you like to speak a lie? Do you like to kill? Then, do you like parigraha (acquisitiveness)? All right then what is there in sex that one likes it?

Questioner : I do not like it at all and yet the attraction remains. I continue to experience remorse about it.

Dadashri: If there is remorse, then it will go away. How can sexuality remain if you see only the Soul of the person? Sexuality arises when you see all the rest except the Self. Do you know how to analyze sexuality?

Questioner : Please tell me, Dada.

Dadashri : Analyzing the sexual event means, do the eyes like it? Do the ears like it when they hear it? And does it taste sweet if the tongue licks it? None of the senses like it. The nose must really like it right? Oh, it will smell good, right? Would have spray perfume, no? So, need to analyze this way. But without this analysis people are confused. Isn't it a wonder that the world is so enamored with sex?

Questioner : Then why does the attraction remain?

Dadashri : It is because of lack of understanding. The attraction to sex continues because the old link of misunderstanding, the nature of sex still remains. But now you have understood that sex is like this! In the past you had not done such an analysis and known the real nature of sexuality. You believed what the people believed to be the right path, but now you have awakened and realized the hollowness in sexuality. In sexuality oh! ho! ho!, there lie myriads of dangers ! The entire worldly life wanderings exist on its basis and the entire day's beatings also is taken on account of it. It would have been fine, if the individual sensory organs liked it, but none of the sensory organs (indriyas) like sexuality at all.
