What is the energy behind sex?

Have you not seen that whenever you place too much hope upon anything, you end up destroying it? Because what you are expecting from the object of your hope, can never really be fulfilled by that object. Even if it is just a glass of water, even if it’s an ordinary bedsheet, even if it’s a pair of bathroom slippers, even if it’s just a little pen, even if it’s just a trifling conversation, mind you that the ego expects nothing less than 100% contentment from it. The ego does nothing except seek that.

So, even if it touches a dry and dead leaf, somewhere it is expecting to find the Truth in it. That is the burden the ego places upon every object it comes in contact with. And that is also the reason why lovers destroy each other. Because, when you love a man or a woman, you expect him, or her to be the channel that takes you to God. You expect him to be the guide to God. In some sense you expect your lover to be if nobody less than God. That is too much of a burden to place upon a limited human being. Your lover will never be able to satisfy your expectations because what you are expecting is impossible.
