Excerpt from this Book
Here’s one of the questions from this book and Osho’s answer to it:
Question: You were saying that mere sex will go on producing only more and more children; but what do you produce when you join sex with meditation?
Osho: You will produce yourself anew. You will find that you are not finished as you are. There are higher levels of your intelligence. of your consciousness; as you start producing those higher levels of your intelligence and consciousness, you will be surprised—your interest in sex starts disappearing, because now sex is producing something far greater than life, it is producing consciousness. Life is a lower thing; consciousness is a higher thing. And once you are capable of producing consciousness, then there is no barrier that says you cannot make love, but it will look very dull. It won’t give you any joy, it will look like a sheer waste of energy. You would rather use your energy to create higher and higher pyramids of consciousness in yourself until you reach to the ultimate point, which I call enlightenment.
