Q: How will the sexual impulse cease to be?
RM: When differentiation ceases.
Q: How can it be effected?
RM: The ''opposite' sex, and it's relation, are only mental concepts.
The Upanishad says that all are dear because the Self is beloved of all.
One's happiness is within; the love is of the Self only. It is only within;
do not think it to be without. Then differentiation ceases to operate.

Anyone can look up quotes of Ramana and that is wonderful.
I intend to write out some talks with him...not as easy to find.

Q: What about bringing down divine consciousness from above?
RM: As if the same is not already in the Heart?......
Realization is only the removing of obstacles to the recognition of the eternal, immanent Reality
Reality is.
It need not be taken from place to place.

Q: ...how is the mind to be eliminated...?
RM: The mind is by nature restless. Begin liberating it from its restlessness;
give it peace, make it free from distractions, train it to look inward, and make

all this a habit. This is done by ignoring the external world and removing the obstacles to peace of mind.

4 This clear 'Lamp of Supreme Truth'
was not one that myself lit with my infantile and
immature knowledge - I whose heart had not seen the truth shine.
It was lit by my Lord Ramana with his ripe, supreme jnana.

....and Ramana Maharshi's definition of "Be Still" is "I AM" with no other thoughts or qualifications.

Eventually, as he pointed out, that which is no longer even says "I AM".

(Ramana is one of my favorites.)
