But what happens to the ordinary mind? The distinction remains to the very end, sex remains to the very end. Even if the body becomes weak, the mind goes on; and sex is the basic duality. So unless sex disappears, the oneness, the nondual, the Brahma is not going to happen. Remember, the nondual – the advaita, the Brahma, the one – is not a hypothesis, it is not a theory, it is not a doctrine. It is not a philosophical thing you can argue about, it is not a belief: it is a transcendence of sex. It is a very deep biological phenomenon, it is alchemical, because your whole body needs a transformation.
Three old men were sitting in a garden on a bench discussing their miseries; because old men have nothing else to say. One old man, who was seventy-three, said, “My hearing is going. People have to shout into my ears, and even then I cannot hear rightly!”
Another, who was seventy-eight, said, “My eyes are becoming weak, I cannot see rightly, and moreover, I cannot even make a distinction between a blond and a redhead!”
Then they asked the third man, they said, “Mulla Nasruddin, and what is your trouble?”
Nasruddin, who was ninety-three, said, “My trouble is deeper than both of yours. Last night it happened: we had dinner, then some wine, then I rested on the sofa and I fell asleep. About half an hour later I became aware that the wife had gone to bed. So I went into the bedroom and I told the wife, ‘Give me a little space, let me come into bed and we will have a little fun!’ The wife said, ‘What? We had a little fun just twenty minutes ago!’”
And then Nasruddin tapped his head very sadly and said, “Gentlemen, my problem is that my memory is slipping!”
Sex goes on following you to the very end, to the last. And you may not have observed, you may not have thought about it, but if a man has not transcended mind, the last thing in the mind when he dies will be sex. Because that was the first thing when he was born, it is bound to be the last thing. It is natural: try it!
When you go to sleep at night just watch the last thought: the last, the very last; after that fall into sleep. Remember it, and in the morning you will be surprised: it will be the first thought in the morning; if you observe. Or do it the other way: in the morning, observe the first thought and remember it. In the night that will be the last thought, because life is cyclic. Sex is the first thing in life and it is going to be the last. If you don’t transcend it you are just victims, you are not your own masters.
Do you know what happens whenever a person is hanged? If a male is hanged, the semen is immediately released. This happens in every prison, wherever people are hanged. The last thing, when he is dying, semen is released. What is the meaning of it? Why should it be so? Life is a cycle, it completes itself: that was the first thing, through which he entered life; that is going to be the last thing, through which he will again enter into another life.
