Peaks of pleasure

Your peaks of pleasure
are dependent on ignorance and forgetfulness.
This is the nature of trances.

How remarkable they are!
Be prepared to give them up.

Be prepared to exchange them
for plateau of quietness.

Now you can wake up
by asking to be waken up.

One cannot lift oneself by the hair

Beautiful! Couldn't say it better, every word in the exact place it should be. Thank you.

"Now you can wake up by asking to be waken up."

All we can do is to prepare a little (by giving up attachments) and then ask and pray. The awakening is a grace of the spirit, of god, of beyond our control and capabilities. One cannot lift oneself by the hair.

Including diminished sexual urge

This also includes your sexual urge. Be prepared to lose it. See more in My sexual urge has almost disappeared.

PS. Still, most of the cases in which spiritual seekers lose their sexual urge drastically one day are not because they are highly evolved spiritually but due to tacit control imposed on whatever observed when the scope of observation increases, see more in Whatever you become aware of, the mind may try to control

Beautiful! So many get stuck


So many get stuck in the zone of pleasures and bliss believing that this is it while they are so close to the promised land which characterized in quietness, not even bliss (which by definition needs a background of quietness which is what is remained when the self is realized).
