You had suggested to me to be celibate for several months. Lately I’ve been feeling very sexual and I don’t know what I should do about it.
Just do one thing whenever it happens again. Sit straight – on a chair or on the floor – with the spine straight, but loose and not tense.
Inhale slowly and deeply. Don’t be in a hurry; very slowly go on inhaling. The belly comes up first; you go on inhaling. The chest comes up next, and then finally you can feel that the air is filled up to the neck. Then for a moment or two just keep the breath in, for as long as you can without straining, then exhale. Exhale, also very slowly but in the reverse order. When the belly is being emptied, pull it in so that all the air goes out.
This has to be done just seven times. Then sit silently and start repeating, “aum, aum, aum.” While repeating aum, keep your concentration on the third eye spot between the two eyebrows. Forget about the breathing, and go on repeating in a very drowsy way, aum, aum, aum like a mother sings a lullaby so the child goes to sleep. The mouth should be closed, so much so that the tongue is touching the roof; and your whole concentration is on the third eye.
Do this just for two or three minutes and you will feel that the whole head is relaxing. When it starts relaxing you will immediately feel inside a tightness dropping, a tension disappearing. Then bring your concentration down to the throat; go on repeating aum, but with your concentration on the throat. Then you will see that your shoulders, your throat and your face are relaxing and that the tension is falling away like a burden dropping; you are becoming weightless.
Then drop deeper, bringing your concentration to the navel and continuing the aum. You are going deeper and deeper and deeper. Then finally you come to the sex center. This will take at the most ten minutes, fifteen minutes, so go slowly, there is no hurry.
When you have reached the sex center the whole body will be relaxed, and you will feel a glow as if some aura, some light, is surrounding you. You are full of energy, but the energy is like a reservoir; full of energy but with no ripples. Then you can sit in that state as much as you like; the meditation is over – now you are simply enjoying. Stop the aum and simply sit. If you feel like lying down, you can lie down, but if you move that position the state will disappear sooner, so sit a little and enjoy it.
This brings what scientists call the alpha wave in the mind. It has a certain rhythm – ten cycles per second – which is also the rhythm of the magnetic field of the earth. When you are also in the same rhythm, you become part of the magnetic field of the earth. This is what relaxation is.
