Excerpt from: Sex Matters, Chapter 1
"The basic obstructions are man-made, are created by humans. Otherwise the river of love is meant to flow and reach the ocean of life. Humans are here so that they can flow as love and arrive at godliness.
"What are the man-made obstacles that we have contrived? The first thing is that up till now, all of human culture has been against sex, against passion. This opposition, this negation has shattered and destroyed the possibility of the birth of love in humans.
"The simple truth is that sex is the starting point of all journeys to love. The birthplace of the journey to love – love’s Gangotri, the source, the origin of the Ganges of love – is sex. And everybody is inimical to it – all cultures, all religions, all gurus, all holy men. Theirs is an attack on the Gangotri itself, on the very source, and the river is stopped there: ‘Sex is sin…sex is irreligious…sex is poison.’ And it never enters our minds that it is sexual energy that ultimately transforms and transmutes into love.
"The evolution of love is nothing but sex energy transformed." Osho
"Every once in a while, a book comes along that, like a marvelous invention, makes you say, ’Why didn’t somebody do this long ago!’ Sex Matters rediscovers the human, and rewards rather than punishes one for being in that state. It is a wondrous revelation that will give peace, confidence and courage all at the same time."
