More About the Author

Adi Da was born in New York at the outbreak of World War II. From 1983 he lived principally in Fiji and became a Fijian citizen. The author of over sixty books on spirituality and a prolific artist, he also had profound attention for world affairs, particularly during the last decade of his life, as summarized in Not-Two Is Peace.
Adi Da was born in a unique spiritual state. As a young man, he immersed himself in the traditions of human wisdom and spirituality. His Western studies included university degrees--in philosophy from Columbia and in literature from Stanford. Following his university years, he intensively engaged both Western and Eastern forms of spiritual practice.
In 1970, at the age of thirty, Adi Da was re-established in the illumined condition he had known in his earliest life. He began to offer formal instruction in spiritual practice to those who came to him, creating (out of a free interactive participation with his devotees) what is now an unprecedented body of spiritual, philosophical, and practical writings (find the most current offerings at the Dawn Horse Press website), as well as an immense body of visual art (the website dedicated to Adi Da's art is called Daplastique). In 2007, his artwork was exhibited at the 52nd Venice Biennale, and subsequently in several other exhibitions, including in Florence, New York, and Los Angeles.
As spiritual teacher, artist, and "World Friend", Adi Da is not a conventional figure. He is not political in any ordinary sense of the word. Rather, his address to humanity comes from his lifelong communication of the truth of human existence. He is making clear the species-endangering forces of limitation in our world, the means to go beyond them, and the great urgency of this "going beyond".

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.
