This is a collection of talks and essays by Adi Da on human emotions, love and "sexuality" taken in a broad sense. There is a great deal of content here but there are at least two aspects to the consideration that really spoke to me:

The first is about our open and whole body participation in the energetic and full dimension of life, which is a tangible expression of divine consciousness. Usually we habituate to a very small spectrum of feeling and its associated phenomena (thoughts, body sense, and limited emotions) as opposed to living the full spectrum of our possibilities as human beings.

"When the individual is frustrated, it is Life in him that is suppressed. The Force of Life is naturally expansive, moving, blissful, and undefined. But frustration or suppression of the feeling being, the whole body, tends to create an equal and opposite reaction, in the form of reactive contractions of attention(into forms of thought) and emotions (into reactive forms, such as fear, sorrow, guild, anger, and self-doubt) and body ( into genital tension and organ and muscle tensions or dis-eases all over the body)...Instead, ecstasy is realized in Divine Communion moment to moment, and the reactivity of the body mind is thereby undermined and made penetrable by the Force of Life. Thus, the devote is not obliged to solve the problems created by the chronic reactivity, but he penetrates reactivity with living force, and he lives a happy life of love and service and constant Fullness in God (100-101, Love of the two Armed Form)"

The other aspect has more to do with understating our ritual reactions to how we relate with others in a form of self bondage and other binding activity.

This book was written in the 70's and is an interesting viewpoint of sex and lovemaking. It has it own lexicon so the reader may or may not enjoy figuring out what the author is talking about. The book doesn't need to be read cover to cover and I enjoyed jumping around reading the parts that were of the most interest to me.
