As I read along there is another passage in the book:
“I’ve just introduced a little more energy into your body than you’re used to,” he explained. It will accelerate the healing processes. It burns only where you have knots. If you were free of obstruction – if your mind was clear, your heart open, and your body free of tension, you’d experience the energy as an indescribable pleasure – better than sex. You’d think you were in heaven, ….
Wow! The first part reminds me of taking homeopathic remedies and getting better after only a few hours because my body is getting energy to accelerate the healing process in a more or less “natural” way. It focuses on the illness only, similar to some Chinese medicine I suppose.
So if we are free from obstruction – any illnesses, any worries, any thoughts – then our mind is clear and our heart is open. There is nothing we have to worry about, nothing to think about and we would in fact be open for anything: love, peace, happiness, possibly enlightenment.
If we came to this situation and did not feel any tension what so ever I could be convinced that the energy flow in our body would be a pleasure and joy. We would feel great, energized and powerful, happy and … as Millmann says “felt indescribable pleasure”.
But better than sex…..
I suppose if you clear all thoughts and focus on the energy flow in your body, then the thought of sex is gone too. But maybe that is just a male thinking and there is a stronger energy flow than at an orgasm. Wikipedia says: An orgasm (sexual climax) is […] characterized by intense physical pleasure, controlled by the involuntary, or autonomic, nervous system.
Would that mean that there is an energy flow which has a more intense physical pleasure than an orgasm and might not be controlled by our nervous system? That is a fascinating idea – maybe similar to having an orgasm that goes on and on?
At least Wikipedia now explained why I am getting so tired too ,-) …… – click here.
Definately time to go to bed.
