Osho – Witnessing Sex Energy

When you feel the sensation of an erection just coming to you but it has not yet come, you just feel the vibration, become alert. 

The vibration will be lost, and the same energy will move into alertness……
Tantra has used this.
It has tried in many ways. 
A beautiful naked woman will be there just as an object for meditation, and the seeker, the meditator, will sit before the nude woman meditating on her body, her form, her proportions, just waiting for the first sensation in his sex center. 
The moment the sensation is there, he will close his eyes. 
He will forget the woman. 
He will close his eyes, and he will become alert of the sensation. 
Then sex energy is being transformed into alertness….

“ Those who think in terms of physiology, they say that the sex act is just sneezing through the sex organ — and the similarity is there. 
It is not one hundred percent right because much more is involved in sex, greater things are involved in it. But in the beginning, just in the beginning, the similarity is there.

Something is thrown out from the nose and you feel relieved, and something is thrown out from the sex organ and you feel relieved. 
And both are non-voluntary. You cannot move into sex with will. 
If you try, you will be a failure — particularly men, because man’s sex organ has to do something.
It is active. You cannot “will” its act, and if you try, then the more you try, the more it will be impossible.
It can happen, but you cannot make it happen. 
Because of this, in the West sex has become a problem. This half century in the West sex knowledge has developed, and everyone has become so conscious about it that the sex act is becoming more and more impossible.

 

If you are alert, sex will be impossible.
If a man is alert while making love, the more he is alert, the more it will be difficult.
He will not be able to get an erection. 
It cannot be willed, and if you will it you will lose it. 
The same method, the same technique, can be used in sex. 
Just in the beginning, when you feel the sensation of an erection just coming to you but it has not yet come, you just feel the vibration, become alert. 
The vibration will be lost, and the same energy will move into alertness.

He will close his eyes, and he will become alert of the sensation. 
Then sex energy is being transformed into alertness.

He is allowed to meditate on the nude woman only up to the point when the sensation is felt. 
When he has to close his eyes and move to his own sensation and become alert there, the same as is done in sneezing.
And why does this flash happen? 
Because mind is not there. 
The basic thing is that if the mind is not there and you are alert, you will have satori, you will have the first glimpse of Samadhi.”
