Love vs Sex 79 (#2 on Tantric Sex)

The male body and the female body are similar, but still different in many, many ways. And the difference is always complementary. Whatsoever is positive in the male body will be negative in the female body; and whatsoever is positive in the female body will be negative in the male body. That is why when we meet in deep orgasm, they become one orgasm. The positive meets the negative, the negative meets the positive, and both become one—one circle of electricity.

Hence so much attraction for sex, so much appeal. This appeal is not because man is a sinner or immoral, it is not because the modern world has become too licentious; it is not because of obscene films and literature—it is very deeply rooted, very cosmic. The attraction is because both male and female are half circuits, and there is an inherent tendency in existence to transcend whatsoever is incomplete and to become complete. This is one of the ultimate laws (of natural order…Cribb characterization)— the tendency towards completion. Nature abhors incompleteness, any type of incompleteness. The male is incomplete, the female incomplete, and they can have only one moment of completion—when their electrical circuits become one, when the two are dissolved.

That is why the two most important words in all languages are love and prayer. In love you become one with a single individual; in prayer you become one with the whole cosmos. And love and prayer are similar as far as their inner workings are concerned.
