An Excerpt from
Ruchira Tantra Yoga

from Part Nine: The Non-Dual Healing and En-Light-enment of Money, Food, Sex, and the Whole Body

by The Divine World-Teacher,
Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj

Mankind is, by reactive tendency, patterned ego-centrically. Therefore, even when people become involved in religious or Spiritual activity, there are certain uninspected notions that automatically tend to be brought into play. One of the principal such notions is that Spiritual life requires separation from vital and physical life. Indeed, in many religious and Spiritual traditions, that is exactly what Spiritual life is regarded as being—a strategically exclusive effort, an “inward”-turning search, getting away from all of life (away from the life-force, the life-form, the life-mind, the life-appearance, the life-sensation), and (by means of that strategic inversion) getting into some “inward”, subtle, non-life perception, or vision, or heaven, or whatever. Because this traditional association of ideas tends to be blanketed over everything that has to do with religion, Spirituality, Yoga, and the like—every demand, every quality suggested within religious and Spiritual life that involves the physical and vital being, tends to meet immediate resistance.

Money, food, and sex are the essential activities of life. Those are the vital processes, the forms of vital appearance and function. And money, food, and sex are the first things that people begin to resist or manipulate when they become involved in anything that even remotely resembles religion or Spirituality. So-called “religious” people, for the most part, are extremely confused and guilty about money, food, and sex. People involved in conventional Yoga and religion are endlessly preoccupied in experimenting with money, food, and sex. What are such people always doing? “Should I or shouldn’t I?” “What is the right diet?” “Fasting? Macrobiotics? No food?” “Renunciation? Poverty?” They are on and off food all the time, on and off sex. They may be celibate for years in order to get “enlightened”, but then, just as dramatically, they are seeking the “tantric bliss” or the restoration of “mental health” in a perpetual orgasmic exercise. Then there are all of the other games of self-denial, no work, no income. Such are the notions that tend to arise whenever anything like religion or Spirituality comes into a person’s life. . . .

If you become My true devotee (egoless in Me), your one and whole and entire body-mind (or total psycho-physical body) becomes (by Means of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Grace) progressively Filled with My Divine Light, My “Bright” Transmission of Divine Love-Bliss. Thus, as My true devotee, your participation in money, food, and sex becomes (Really, and, at last, Most Perfectly) En-Light-ened, along with all the rest of indivisible you (non-separate in Me)!

The Cosmic domain is entirely psycho-physical—not merely (or exclusively) psychic (or interior, or egoically subjective), and not merely (or exclusively) physical (or exterior, or apparently objective). If you conform yourself responsively to Me, I “Brighten” all of that.
