When we say that the Middle Way - the path of moderation - is the correct path.
I can hear you say that it's too easy.
This is the false assumption that the path has to be difficult - the path of asceticism or self-denial.
This of course means sex.
We have to give up sex to be spiritual.
But this is not true.
The way is the way of the heart.
And the heart is closer to sex than self-denial.
We do not have to give up sex to be spiritual.
We have to open our hearts.
Love God and love humanity.
Let the rest take care of itself.
