Chapter 8: Off to Hell - Yo ho!

When you are making love don’t control. Go into uncontrol, go into chaos. It will be fearful, frightening, because it will be a kind of death. And the mind will say “Control!” And the mind will say, “Jump in and keep control, otherwise you will be lost in the abyss of it.” Don’t listen to the mind, get lost. Abandon yourself utterly and without any technique you will come to see a timeless experience. There will be no two in it: oneness. A consciousness will be there, a lucid passive consciousness will be there, you will know what is happening because you will be fully aware. But you will not be there; awareness will be there.

You have to imbibe the Tantra spirit - it is not a technique to be learned.

And the last question:

If at this very moment I can become awakened or enlightened, why then do you allow all those chaotic brainwashing groups, group leaders and therapists to happen at this place and what connection is there between them and my enlightenment?

No connection at all. But they destroy your “if.” They are needed just to make you alert that nothing is needed. And you can become aware only the hard way; you cannot become aware easily. You have been asleep so long; your slumber has been of centuries, of millennia. Those therapy groups simply hit hard on your head, they are a kind of hammering to destroy your if. Going through all those hard arduous trips, one day you will realize that nothing is needed, that enlightenment has not to be searched. That you lose the desire for enlightenment - that is their purpose.

And the moment you don’t desire enlightenment, it is there. It comes when the desire disappears.

Enough for today.
