Love vs. sex

Questioner: The aspirant must undoubtedly eliminate lust and release love. But lust as well as love is a fact of inner life and cannot be taken as being identical with any specific acts of the physical body. Will the aspirant be wrong if he tries to express and develop love [instead of lust] through sex union?

Baba: If the aspirant thinks that through the sex act he is expressing love, he is mistaken. It is lust that prompts him to it. It is not possible to express pure love through the sex act because of the clash of impressions involved therein.
