Sex Is Potentiality
expresses through you it first expresses as the body. It becomes
sex. If it expresses through the mind, which is higher, deeper,
subtler, then it is called love. If it expresses through the

"If everything goes well and sex is natural and flowing
it is a beautiful experience because you can have a glimpse of the
second through it. If sex goes really very deep, so that you forget
yourself completely in it, you can even have a glimpse of the third
through it. And if sex becomes a total orgasmic experience, there
are rare moments when you can even have a glimpse of the fourth,
the turiya, the beyond, through it.
"But if sex fails, then many perversions happen to the mind. These
perversions are expressed in hatred. Hatred is a failure of sex, a
failure of love energy. Violence, lust for money, the continuous
conflicting attitudes of egos: war, politics – these are all
"A man whose sex is not perverted cannot become a politician. It
is impossible. All politicians as such need deep sexual therapy,
otherwise their whole energy will be. moving to gain more and more
power. When sex is natural, you feel power, you are not
seeking it. Sex is potentiality, power. You feel it showering on
you, you don't seek and search for it. But when you miss it there,
then a great urge arises to seek power: politics is born. Then
wars, continuous violence, are born; hatred, anger, and a thousand
and one types of perversions."
