Question

 Sex: should I realize this power I have discovered inside of me in both its light and its dark sides?

Drugs: I cannot stop but I cannot control myself. Should I keep up this way? 

Rock and Roll: I'm a guitarist without any creativity, though I crave for it. Will it ever come? I gave everything to learn and I still do not enjoy real music.

Answer from Master Kosen

I teach zazen, not sex, nor drugs, nor rock and roll. Zazen is "switch off" all this, at least for a while and from this point, reveal something fresher,  see everything from a new, detached outlook, at least for a while. Addiction is the contrary of creativity.
