The attraction between a man and woman occurs because there is an account of subatomic particles between the two.
The attraction between a man and a woman is just like the attraction between a needle and a magnet. If there is a needle and a magnet, and if the magnet is turned then the needle would start moving, although there is no life in the two. Yet, because of the characteristic of the magnet, there is attraction between the two.
Similarly, when there are suitable atoms in the body, attraction occurs with that person. There is a magnet in the other. There is an electric body in the body. Just as the magnet attracts metal and not any other metals, the attraction occurs only between certain bodies. It is because of electricity that these atoms arise and are attracted. Just like the needle and the magnet, did anyone else get involved? Did we teach the needle to start jumping up and down in the vicinity of a magnet?
Therefore, this body is all a science. Everything occurs scientifically.
Ignorance of the Self, coupled with the present worldly knowledge, gives rise to attachment and attraction. If you can visualize the entire life of this woman that you are attracted to, you will be free from the attachment and the attraction. If you visualize with understanding what she looked like in the womb, what she looked like when she was born, when she was a little baby, when she becomes very old, when paralysis occurs, when she is about to be cremated, you do not need to be taught renunciation. People have lost this vision of their worldly reality by what they see today. People have not done such an analysis and known the real nature of sexuality and therefore attraction still remains.
