Zhang Defen：Here comes another question about intimate relationship,What is the functionality of intimate relationship? besides we are forming a family, and raising kids? If we are on spiritual path, and we are single, is it necessary to have an intimate relationship? Is it an aid or a hindrance, to our spiritual path?
Sadhguru：Spiritual process is about turning inward.When it comes to going inward, you cann't go hand in hand with somebody.Nobody else can go inside except you. This's a private place.So if you have needs, If you have physical needs, psychological needs, emotional needs, economic or social needs, then you form relationships to fulfill that. That's not something for me to comment, because it's an individual need, each individual may have different kinds of needs.For some it maybe mild, for some it maybe strong. It is an individual requirement.There is no common prescription that everybody should have a relationship or everybody should not have it,There is no such thing. Anyway, to quote somebody,when someone asked this question to Gautama，the Buddha.Gautama said, it's better to walk alone than to walk with a fool.Not me, not me, I didn't say that. Gautama, the Buddha said this because he believes only a fool will choose to walk with you.I am not saying that, Tiffany.
Zhang Defen：But intimate relationships, sometimes can really break your shell and bring yourself to see what is going on inside of you. Sometimes, we tend to ignore it, we pretend to be peaceful, but whenever it comes to intimate relationships.,it gets so difficult to remain peaceful, happy and joyful all the time. So that's a good test.
Sadhguru：It depends on who you are with.
Zhang Defen：How about a wise guy? If I date a wise guy.
Sadhguru：A wise guy may not date you.
Zhang Defen：Because I am stupid. All right, OK, got that.
