STOP Techniques !!

This is a different dimension of the same technique. WHEN SOME DESIRE COMES, CONSIDER IT. THEN, SUDDENLY, QUIT IT. You feel a desire – a desire for sex, a desire for love, a desire for food, anything. You feel a desire: consider it. When the sutra says consider it, it means do not think for or against it, just consider the desire, what it is…
Just consider this desire – what it is. If your mind could be washed completely of all that has been given to you by the society, of all that your parents have given to you – the education, the culture – if your total mind could be washed out, the desire for sex will arise. It will arise, because that desire is not given to you by the society. That desire is biologically built in; it is in you…
Because you were born out of sex, every cell of your body is a sex cell; you consist of sex cells. Unless your biology can be washed off completely, the desire will be there. It will come – it is already there…
Consideration here means not interpreting, but just looking at the fact as it is. The desire is there: look at it directly, immediately. Do not bring in your thoughts or ideas, because no thought is yours and no idea is yours…
WHEN SOME DESIRE COMES, CONSIDER IT. Just look at the fact – at what it is. Unfortunately, it is one of the most difficult things to do. Compared to this, reaching to the moon is not so difficult or reaching to the peak of Everest is not so difficult…
There are two parts to this technique. First, remain with the fact – aware, attentive of what is happening. When you feel a sexual desire, what is happening in you? See how you become feverish, how your body begins to tremble, how you feel a sudden madness creeping in, how you feel as if you are possessed by something else. Feel it, consider it. Do not exercise any judgement, just move into this fact – the fact of sexual desire. Do not say it is bad!!
Consider it, observe it. And then the second part… this is really beautiful. Shiva says, THEN, SUDDENLY, QUIT IT. SUDDENLY – remember. Do not say, “This is bad, so I am going to leave it”
The sutra says, SUDDENLY, QUIT IT.
What to do? The desire is there; you have considered. If you have considered it, it will not be difficult; the second part will be easy…
First consider, do not create any liking or disliking. Just consider, and then the second part becomes easy – you can quit the desire. How to quit it? When you have considered a thing totally, it is very easy; it is as easy as dropping this paper from my hand. QUIT IT…
What will happen? The moment you can simply say, ”I quit,” a separation happens. Your body – your passionate body, your body filled with sex desire – and you become two. Suddenly, in a moment, they are two poles apart. The body is writhing with passion and sex, and the center is silent, observing. No fight is there, just a separation – remember this. In fight you are not separate. When you are fighting you are one with the object. When you have just quit it, you are separate. Now you can look at it as if someone else is there, not you.
