And in this crazy world of so many hour energy drinks. . and all manner of stimulants. . .he says: The reason to avoid conventional stimulants is not to depress energy or pleasure, but to place the being in a natural position so that it does not have illusions of energy or pleasure (from artificial stimulants) but must realize energy from right sources and practices which transform, liberate . . . .
Now there's much more to his words than I've captured here. . I'm just capturing phrases, not complete thoughts, but they are truly profound. You may want to read this carefully, slowly and quietly. . .and allow his deep insight to heal and awaken you. This is true of all his words, and all his works. He was and remains, my most enlightened teacher. There was no limit to Master DA's brilliance.
Many people see raw food eating as trendy, but in this book Da Free John (aka Adi Da) is encouraging such a diet in 1980 after witnessing the affects on himself and his followers. But, he also says, regardless of what food you choose to eat, one should look at eating from a regenerative point of view. Regenerative diet. How come nobody ever talks about eating with that term? It's always about good health, preventing bad health or weight loss. But, that ignores the idea of spirituality.
But, this is not only a diet book as Da Free John also discusses sexual life, exercise, spirituality and the whole physical body. Dieting is just one aspect of one's body but we put a lot of emphasis on it - over-emphasis.
The sequel to this book is "Green Gorilla" which expands on his raw diet discussion.
This is a must have book because eating is as much about our attitudes as it is our shopping list.
