Notice

This 1991 version of The Dawn Horse Testament is NOT the final version by Adidam (Adi Da).

“you should not study any earlier edition of The Dawn Horse Testament (or any earlier edition of any other of My “source-Texts”). The final edition is it. There are not “multi-editions” or “mutil-instructions”.
“I am taking great care to prevent the falsification and transformation of the Reality-Way of Adidam – all of this kind of make-it-up-as-you-go-along do-it-yourself “religiosity” and revisionism.

The current and latest 2004 edition of The Dawn Horse Testament is out of print. It is not entirely “current” with Beloved Adi Da’s final language conventions and the details of His practical Instructions. Since their is no final or official version available Beezone feels it appropriate to use this 1991 version as a form of study with the understanding of the above ‘notice’.

Chapter 21

Practice The Wound Of Love

It Is The Tendency Of self-Contracted personalities To Indulge In sex as a degenerative activity (that Breaks The Life-Circle and Throws Off the Natural bodily energy, and Even The Spirit-Power, To The Degree That There Is Any Developed Spirit-Power, As If Natural bodily energy and The Spirit-Power Itself Were mere waste products of the body). This Tendency Is The Result Of The Reactive Presumption Of Independence, Separateness, and Alienation. It Is Founded On The Psychology Of Betrayal (or Of Rejection, By and Of others). Sexual activity Is Thus Degraded Into a merely organic or lower physical exercise, Engaged For The Sake Of Nothing More Than Stress-Release and Temporary Pseudo-Happiness.

Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, and Once Most Fundamental self-Understanding Has (By Grace) Awakened and Become Effective (Even In Relation To The emotional-sexual Dimension Of the body-mind), and Once That True Hearing Has Allowed The Heart To See (By Grace) In Truth, sexual activity itself (If it Is Engaged) Must Be Converted To Spirit-Life (or The Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Fullness) By Means Of The self-Transcending Response To The Giving Source Of Grace. By Such Means, sexual activity Ceases To Be Primarily A lower physical or organic Indulgence Of the body-mind. Instead, it Becomes Primarily An Exercise Of and an experience via the Total human nervous system, and it Is Thus Only Secondarily A lower physical or organic Process (In Which body and mind Are Disciplined To Conform To The By Grace Revealed Spiritual Life-Current Through Heart-Feeling In The Circle).

Sex Is Rooted In The Heart, or the emotional character. Sexual activity Is Either A Direct Expression Of Love (or Inherent, Primary, and Freely Radiant Heart-Feeling) Or The Dramatization Of emotional limitations Through physical Displays. And Full sexual Expression Requires A Full and Free Heart, Awakened To The Constantly Baptizing Spirit-Presence Of The By Grace Revealed Divine Person. Then sexual activity (or, Really, emotional-sexual activity) Incarnates Free Heart-Feeling and Spiritual Energy.

True Sila (As A sexual Discipline At Practicing Stage Three, and Beyond, In The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Course Of The Way Of The Heart, or, Otherwise, In The Fully Both Hearing and Seeing Context Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart) Involves Either The Intelligent Relinquishment Of sexual activity Or Right (and Spiritually Active) Practice Of Sexual Communion. And Such Right and True and Spiritually Responsible Sexual Communion (or Divine Communion Via sexual Love) Requires The Magnification, Conservation, and Conversion Of The By Grace Revealed Spiritual Life-Current (and the Natural bodily energy), In The Circle Of the body-mind, and By The Means I Will Describe To You In This, My Testament Of Secrets.

The sexual Motive, Divorced From The Spiritual Reality and Engaged Apart From The Motive Of self-Transcendence (and The Awakened Ability To Directly Realize self-Transcendence), Is A Principal Effort (Coming Out Of The Adaptations Of The First Three Stages Of Life) Whereby individuals Avoid The Call (and Deny The Impulse) To Perfectly self-Transcending God-Realization. Therefore, You Must First Observe and Understand The ordinary sexual Motive As self-Contraction. Then You Must Actively, Effectively, and Most Fundamentally Transcend The self-Contracted Dramatization Of Your sexuality. Without Such Real, Direct, and Most Fundamental Transcendence Of the sexual ego, There Is No Real and True Entrance Into The Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Fully Established (or Actually Seeing) Context Of The “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life (or Advancement To and Through The Way Of The Heart In The Context Of The Stages Of Life Beyond The Fully Established “Basic” Fourth).

In The Way Of The Heart, The Foundation Discipline Of Your sexuality Must Become Thoroughly Established During The Period Of Student-Beginner “Consideration”, or First Practice, Of The Way Of The Heart. Then The (Subsequent) Most Fundamental Understanding Of Your sexuality, and The (Thereby Realized) Real, Direct, and Most Fundamental Transcendence Of The egoic Uses Of Your sexuality, Must All Be Developed and Established During The First Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Context Of Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart). And, Eventually, That (Real, and Most Fundamental, and Directly Effective) Transcendence (Made Possible By True Hearing) Is Also To Be Increased (or Magnified) By (or After, and On The Basis Of) The Spiritual Awakening Initiated (or Fully Responsibly Established) In The Second Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Context Of “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart).

In The Way Of The Heart, Study (and All “Consideration”), and Devotion, and Love, and Service, and self-Discipline, and Meditation (and Every Meditative Practice) Must Always Serve sexual self-Transcendence (As Well As Every Other Dimension Of Responsibility and Realization), and Especially (or With Direct and Full Effectiveness) Once Both True Hearing and (Then) Real Seeing Are Awakened. Then You Must Economize and Fully Spiritualize Your sexuality itself, Either Through The Regenerative Yoga Of Sexual Communion Or Through Free and Voluntary and Spiritually Oriented celibacy.

The (Necessarily, Spiritual) Practice Of Sexual Communion Should Not (and, Truly, Cannot) Begin Until Practice Begins Either In The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Or, Otherwise, When Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Is Formally Acknowledged To Be Fully Established In The Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Context Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart. (Until Then, sexual “Conscious Exercise”, As I Will Describe It In This, My Testament Of Secrets, Should Be Practiced By All sexually active Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, Beginning In The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart.)

Sexual Communion Is The emotional-sexual Practice Of Spirit-Communion (and It Requires The Fullest and Stable Capability and Capacity For Spirit-Communion). Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, Sexual Communion Is (If Real and True) A Kind Of Sacramental Activity (or Puja), In Which attention Is Intentionally Maintained In The By Grace Revealed Divine Spirit-Presence Through Devotional Sacrifice Of Separate and Separative self (or Heart-Feeling Submission Of the Total body-mind) During sexual Embrace.

Pujas, or Sacred Rituals, Are, Truly, A Direct Enactment Of The Sacrifice (Of the conditional self). In The Advanced Progress, and The Ultimate Progress, Of The Way Of The Heart, Such Pujas, or Sacred Rituals, Serve The Divine Spirit-Infusion and The (Ultimately, Inherently Perfect) Transcendence Of the entire psycho-physical person. Like Meditation In The Way Of The Heart, Pujas In The Way Of The Heart Are The Practice Of Divine Communion (Whether They Are Practiced By Listening Devotees, Or By Hearing Devotees, Or By Seeing Devotees), but Whereas Meditation In The Way Of The Heart Is A Rather (or Apparently) “Internalized” Practice, Even Involving The Temporary Relinquishment Of bodily (and Even mentalized) Consciousness (In Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily Human Form, My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence, and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State, and, Thus and Thereby, In Feeling-Contemplation Of The Divine Person and Self-Condition), Pujas (As They Are Practiced By All Listening Devotees, Hearing Devotees, and Seeing Devotees In The Way Of The Heart) Are To Be Actively (“Outwardly”, or bodily) Performed (As Formal, Intentional, self-Transcending Acts Of Feeling-attention To My Bodily Human Form, My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence, and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State, and, Thus and Thereby, To The Supreme Condition Of The Divine Person). And All Listening Devotees, Hearing Devotees, and Seeing Devotees In The Way Of The Heart Are Called To Perform Such Pujas (or Sacred and Sacramental Acts) As Acts Of self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Devotion To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person and Condition) That, By Grace, Either Presently Or Potentially Energize and Infuse the Active bodily personality With The Divine Spiritual Radiance.

All Listening Devotees, All Hearing Devotees, and All Seeing Devotees In The Way Of The Heart Should Engage Both Meditative (or body-mind Relinquishing) and Sacramental (or bodily-Enacted Ritual) Forms Of Devotion every day. (And, In The Way Of The Heart, These Two, Once Established, Will, Like All Other Fundamental Gifts, Callings, and Disciplines Embraced By Developing Practitioners In The Way Of The Heart, Be Continued, As A Natural, or psycho-physical, Inevitability, Even In The Always Already Full Context Of The Seventh Stage Of Life, Although Meditation, As It Was, Will Then Be Replaced, or Inherently, and Inherently Perfectly, Fulfilled, By The Demonstrations Of Inherently Perfect Divine Samadhi, and Sacramental Activities Also Will Then, By Their Inherently Perfect Realization, Be Enlarged To Include, or To Divinely Transfigure and To Divinely Transform, Even all Apparent activities of the body-mind, Until Even The Appearance Of action itself Is Perfectly Outshined In The Divine “Brightness” Of Being, Itself.) Therefore, These Two (The Meditative and The Sacramental) Forms Of Devotional Communion With Me (and, Thus and Thereby, With The Divine Person and Condition) Will, In The Case Of Each and Every Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart, Balance The Practice (Of The Way Of The Heart) Between bodily (and mentally) Yielding and bodily (and mentally) Active Practices. (And Even All The regular daily Disciplines Engaged By My Listening Devotees, My Hearing Devotees, and My Seeing Devotees, Including All Sacramental Activities, or Pujas, and Also Including Fundamental sexual self-Discipline, and Eventual Sexual Communion, Are Examples Of bodily Effective Devotional Practices.)

A Puja Is A Special Sacred Performance. That Act Is The “Opposite” (or, Really, The Complement) Of Meditation, In The Sense That, While Meditation Involves Intentional Transcendence Of bodily Consciousness In Divine Communion, The Puja Intentionally Includes bodily Consciousness In A Kind Of Rapturous, Artful Enactment Of Divine Communion, Wherein You Must Constantly Maintain attention to the body and its relations, but In The Manner Of A Sacred Performance, Not In casual, conventional Terms. Because In The Puja You Are Always Active In Various Ways, physically, vocally, and so forth, You Never Abandon bodily Consciousness. Nevertheless, In The Way Of The Heart, You Must Allow Your conditional self, Even bodily, To Be Completely Absorbed In Communion With Me (and, Thus and Thereby, With The Divine Person) Through These Devices. The Sacred Puja Is Thus To Be An Aspect Of Your Total Practice That Functions To Balance (or Complement) The Effect Of Meditation, and That Also Balances You In (or Rightly Orients You To) all the more ordinary functional, practical, and relational performances of daily life (which You Tend Not To Turn Into A Sacred Art or Puja, but which Are Supposed To Be Such In Fact). Therefore, sexual activity, Converted Into sexual self-Discipline In General (and Then, In The Context Of Truly Seeing Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, Sexual Communion In Particular), Is Puja, or A True Ritual (or Devotional) Art.

The Puja Of Sexual Communion Requires That attention Be Concentrated In sexual activity As An emotionally Expressed physical, sensual, and Spiritual Act. Therefore, The Tendency and The Habit Of emotional Dissociation Must (Basically and Effectively) Be Transcended As A Preliminary To (and As A Part Of) The Real and Effective Practice Of Sexual Communion (or Of Even Any Form Of Right sexual Practice In The Way Of The Heart).

Both Hearing and Seeing Are The Prerequisites For This Puja Of Sexual Communion. And Even Though Sexual Communion Is A Matter Of individual Responsibility, The Fullest Realization Of The Process Is Optimally Served When each partner In The Embrace Is Fully Prepared (By Every Virtue Of Effective True Hearing Of Me and Heart-Profound Seeing Of Me) To Participate In This Yogic (and, Necessarily, Spiritual) sexual Discipline. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, The individual Practitioner Of Sexual Communion (and, Optimally, each partner In The Embrace) Must Make himself or herself A self-Sacrificial Offering To the other, and Always (Directly) In The Pervasive Current Of My Heart-Awakening Spirit-Presence, and Through Fully Felt and Openly Disclosed Love, and Through Heart-Felt (and Truly Devotional) Submission Of the body-mind. Likewise, The Habitual Wandering Of attention In thought and mental imagery Must Be Transcended In Sexual Communion (or Even In The Context Of Any Right sexual Practice In The Way Of The Heart), or Else the self-Contraction Will Dominate the sexual act itself, Resulting In Stress, Dissociation, and Other Degenerative Effects.

During Sexual Communion, attention Must Be Constantly and Intentionally Concentrated In the sexual act As An emotional and physical (or sensual) Process, In Which You Are Constantly Surrendered (emotionally, physically, and With Complete attention) Into The (By Grace Revealed) Living Divine Spirit-Presence (or All-Pervading Spiritual Current Of Love-Bliss). In This Manner (or By Means Of Intentional emotional-sexual Concentration In The By Grace Revealed Spiritual Reality), The Tendency To Become Abstracted and Defended Against emotional-sexual experience itself, As Well As The Tendency To Become Dissociated From The Real and True Spiritual Process (or Event) In The Context Of emotional-sexual experience, Will Be Directly (and Naturally ) Transcended. That Is To Say, If attention (During sexual activity, In The Practice Of The Way Of The Heart) Is Constantly Concentrated In the present physical, sensual, and emotional act, and If the act itself Is Allowed To Be Attracted (or Sublimed) By The Grace-Given Spirit-Current (Perceived In The Circle Of the body-mind), and If Heart-Felt Spiritual Devotion To Me (Altogether, and Especially In The Form Of My Tangibly Revealed Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence) Is Consistently Allowed To Continue Even In The Context Of All Such sexual Activity, Then The Habit Of Dissociation From the present emotional-sexual act Through mentalizing (or Indulgence In Random verbal or Otherwise Abstracted and non-sexual, or Even anti-sexual, thoughts and memories) and Through Interiorized (or Dissociative) emotional Distractions Will Be Naturally (Rather Than By mental Effort) Bypassed, and The Tendency To Stimulate orgasm Through mental imagery (or Indulgence In sexually Stimulating mental images Abstracted From The Present physical, emotional, and Spiritual Act) Will Not Be Exercised. Thus, the “sexual mind” Will Be Transcended. It Will Cease To Be Necessary and Chronic, and Even its (Decreasingly) Occasional (and, Generally, Non-Intentional) arising Will, Therefore, Have No Profound or Lasting Degenerative Effects.

In The Real and Effective Spiritual Practice Of My sexually active Seeing Devotees, The By Grace Revealed Spirit-Current Must (By Means Of The Formal Application Of A Unique Yogic sexual Discipline) Be Preserved, Even Magnified, In sexual activity (and In every moment Of The emotional-sexual Relationship Itself). Therefore, Beginning At Practicing Stage Three Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Course Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, Once Practice Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is Formally Acknowledged To Be Fully Established On The Basis Of Both Hearing and Seeing), If Ever The Spirit-Fullness In The Heart and The Circle Ceases To Flow Because Of sex, or If It Becomes Weak, Obstructed, or Absent In Anticipation Of sexual activity, During sexual activity, or As A Result Of sexual activity, Your sexual Practice Must Be “Considered” and Corrected.

In The Way Of The Heart, The Real and Effective Practice Of Sexual Communion, Which Is Right Surrender (Of the sexual activities of body, breath, emotion, mind, and attention) To Me (and Into The By Me Revealed Spiritual Life-Current), Will Grant You Natural Control Over the acts and the effects of the Natural (and Otherwise egoic, or self-Contracted and Search Bound) sexual process.

Beyond All The functional, practical, relational, and Cultural Disciplines You (In Your Earlier Practice Of The Way Of The Heart) Will Have Developed Relative To the sexual process, Your sexual Practice As A sexually active Seeing-Devotee Practicing The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, Your sexual Practice As A sexually active Seeing-Devotee Practicing The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart) Must Be Fully self-Transcending and Spirit-Realizing. That Is To Say, It Must Directly (and Always Presently) Transcend the Spirit-Rejecting self-Contraction of body, emotion, and mind. Thus, Your Spiritually Active sexual Practice Must Necessarily Be Even sex-Transcending. That Is To Say, It Must Directly (and Always Presently) Transcend the sexual ego, or the sexually Dramatized (and Spirit-Rejecting) self-Contraction of body, breath, bodily energy, emotion, mind, and attention.

True Sexual Communion Directly Transcends the self-Contraction in its specific form As A Motivate and Performer Of sexual activity. True Sexual Communion Directly Transcends Even the mere convention that is sexual desire, or The Stress Of egoic sexual Seeking, Not By Avoiding it (For Avoidance Is self-Contraction), but By Yielding body, breath, bodily energy, emotion, mind, and attention Into The (By Grace Revealed) Spiritual Life-Current, So That sexual desire (or sexual Seeking) Is Carried Beyond itself, and So That it Is (By Grace, Through Heart-Devotion To Me) Resolved In Love-Bliss (or Inherent Happiness) Itself.

When, In The Way Of The Heart, the sexual self-Contraction Is Fully Yielded Into The By Grace Revealed Spiritual Current (and Divine Person) Of Life, sexual activity Becomes Truly Ordinary (and, Therefore, Not Compulsive or self-Satisfying). It Becomes Non-Problematic, and Also Regenerative (Rather Than Degenerative). It Becomes Naturally and Easily Economized, or Restored To A Balanced or Conservative Order. It Becomes Expressed Through self-Transcending Love. Therefore, True Sexual Communion Relaxes (or Is Resolved) Inevitably Into The Truly Free Pattern Of self-Renunciation, Characterized By No-Seeking, and By Love-Bliss (or Inherent Happiness) Itself.

In The Way Of The Heart, Sexual Communion, Rightly Engaged (In Love), Actively Relinquishes the self-Contraction (which Is The Root-Cause Of Stress and Obstruction In The Frontal Line), Thus Opening The Frontal Line (Down To the bodily base). Even So, Stress and Obstruction Are Not The Right Motivators For Sexual Communion, and The Strategic Removal Of Stress and Obstruction Is Not The Right Purpose Of Sexual Communion. As Is The Case With All Other Disciplines Embraced By Maturing Devotees In The Way Of The Heart, Sexual Communion Is Simply To Be An Expression Of (Spiritual, and Always Devotional) Heart-Fullness and Of Most Fundamental (and Always Directly Effective) self-Understanding. Therefore, In Contrast To conventional sexual activity, The Right Practice Of Sexual Communion an The Way Of The Heart) Simply (or Freely) Preserves and Enhances The By Me Revealed Spirit-Current, Enlivens, Balances, and Rejuvenates the body-mind, and Always Maintains The Full Circle (and The Connection Between The Frontal and Spinal Lines) Of the body-mind.

In The Way Of The Heart, Sexual Communion Involves The Conservation and Conversion (and Not The Suppression or Avoidance) Of male degenerative (or ejaculatory) orgasm and female degenerative orgasm. The Primary Means For The Control and Conversion Of Impending degenerative orgasm (and General Control Of The Living Spirit-Energy, the Natural bodily energy, the bodily reflexes, and the mental activity) During the sex act Are The sexual Exercises Of Radiant Heart-Feeling (or Love), Relaxation Of the body (Particularly Along the spinal axis, From base To Crown), Light (or, Sometimes, Strong) Upward Tensing Of the bodily base, Pranayama (or Control Of The Spirit-Current and the Natural bodily energy Via The Right Exercise Of breath), and The Control (or Right Concentration) Of attention.

The conventional (and degenerative) orgasm (or Discharge Of bodily energy, and, Ultimately, The Living Spirit-Energy, From the brain, and From the body In General, and, In the case of men, Discharge Of vital reproductive fluid As Well) Must (Progressively, and Then, As A General Rule Of Practice, Consistently) Be Bypassed (or, Really, Re-Oriented or Converted) and Replaced By A Generalized or Whole bodily and Regenerative Thrill (or bodily Profusion Of Delight). This Is Because Excess (or Even Routine) Indulgence In Unconverted (or conventional) orgasm (As Well As Indulgence In A Chronic and Stressful Wanting Need or Search For conventional orgasm and sexual Satisfaction Generally) Tends To Reverse The Natural Downward Flow or Polarization Of The Frontal Line Of the body and The Natural Upward Flow or Polarization Of The Spinal Line Of the body, Thus Producing Even Chronic Symptoms Of bodily, emotional, and mental Stress, Imbalance, and Enervation (As Well As A Tendency To Remain Identified With The Patterns Of Un-Happiness and Seeking That Are egoically Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life), and All Of This Works Against The Possibility Of Spiritual Conductivity.

The Natural Tendency Toward (degenerative) orgasm Can Be Felt (By Both the male and the female) As A Gradual or Sudden Descent Of Fundamental bodily energy From the brain, Down The Spinal Line (Thus Reversing The Natural Ascending Flow Of bodily energy In The Spinal Line), Through the perineum, and Then Up and Forward, Toward the genitals. (In the male, This Cycle Is Also Signed By A Tendency For the erect penis To Drop Downward, or To Relax its Upward or Vertical Tension, Accompanied By a pleasurable Pouring or Rushing sensation that Runs Through the central canal, and Along the underside, of the shaft of the penis, From the base Toward the tip.) If This Cycle Is Allowed To Complete Itself, It Ends In The Liberal Discharge (or gross Elimination) Of bodily energy (and, Ultimately, As May Be Observed By those who Are Spiritually Awake, The Liberal Discharge Of The Spiritual Life-Current) From the Total body-mind.

The genitals Become More and More energized During the sexual act, but This Becomes degenerative orgasm (or, Ultimately, Discharge Of The Living Spirit-Current) Only By Degrees. During Sexual Communion, The Spirit-Current (and bodily energy Generally) Is Kept Flowing In The Natural Circuit (Descending Via The Frontal Line and Ascending Via The Spinal Line) By The Right Exercise Of emotion (Through Consistent and Truly Heart-Feeling Devotion To Me, and Through Consistent and Truly Heart-Feeling and humanly Expressed Love Of ones intimate partner In The sexual Embrace), and The Right Exercise Of the body (Through Appropriate Relaxation), and The Right Exercise Of the breath (Through Pranayama), and The Right Exercise Of the mind (Through The Control Of attention), but A Special and More Intense Employment Of These Means Must Be Made When The Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm (or The Descent and Discharge Of bodily energy and The Spirit-Current Via The Spinal Line) Is Felt Approaching.

Once Practice Begins At Practicing Stage Three Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, Once Practice Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is Formally Acknowledged To Be Fully Established On The Basis Of Both Hearing and Seeing), The sexually active Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart Must Practice Sexual Communion. Therefore, As A Specific Practice, The Tendency (In Both The male Practitioner and The female Practitioner) For The Natural Polarization and Flow Of bodily energy and, Ultimately, The Living Spirit-Current (Descending Via The Frontal Line and Ascending Via The Spinal Line) To Become Reversed In The Event Of degenerative orgasm (or Even During sexual activity Generally) Must Itself (and Consistently, or As A General Rule Of Practice) Be Reversed (Easily, or Else With Significant Effort, but Always Intentionally). Thus (In The Case Of Such Seeing Devotees), The “Down, Forward, and Out” Motion Of bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Current (Down From the brain, Down Through The Spinal Line, and Forward and Out Via the genitals and the Total bodily base) Must (As A General Rule Of Practice) Be Reversed, or Converted Into An “In, Back, and Up” Motion Of bodily energy and The Spiritual Life-Current (In and Back Via the genitals and the Total bodily base, and Up Via The Spinal Line To the brain). Therefore (In The Case Of Such Seeing Devotees), the instant The Tendency Toward conventional orgasm Begins (That Is, As Soon As The Sudden Expansion and Descent Of pleasure and bodily energy and Spiritual Life-Energy Begins To Be Felt In the middle of the brain, the lower rear of the brain, and the back of the neck, and Before The Full Descent Of pleasure and bodily energy and Spiritual Life-Energy Via The Spinal Line Toward Discharge At the bodily base), Relax the body (and Perhaps Stop sexual activity, Even By Disengaging the genitals, or Otherwise By Ceasing All Direct, and Even Indirect, genital Stimulation), and breathe Upwards (or With Upward Feeling) In or Via The Spinal Line (and While Focusing attention In The Core Of the brain).

If (At any moment In The Embrace That Is Sexual Communion) The Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm Is Not Strong, Simply (and Actively) Feel the entire body (Including The Entire Frontal Line, the bodily base, The Entire Spinal Line, and the brain), and Thereby Yield and Open the entire body (and Thus The Total Circle Of the body-mind) To The sexually Intensified Flow Of bodily energy and The sexually Evoked Spirit-Current. In This Manner, Feel the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Current Flowing Downwards In The Frontal Line (Polarized Toward the lower abdomen and the bodily base) and Upwards In The Spinal Line (Polarized Toward the brain). Freely (and, Generally, Rather Fully) inhale (Downwards) In The Frontal Line (Receiving the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Current), and (At Random) Also exhale (Downwards) In The Frontal Line (Releasing Reactivity, Stress, and Obstruction), So That The Frontal Line Becomes More and More Open, and More and More Full Of The Descending Flow (Polarized Toward the lower abdomen and the bodily base). And, At Random, Freely exhale (and Perhaps Even inhale) Into The Spinal Line (Upwards, From the bodily base To The Core Of the brain), Even (At Random) Lightly Tensing (or Pulling Up) the bodily base (and Thus Directing the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Current Into The Spinal Line), and (Thereby, or Coincidentally) Focus attention and the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Current In The Upper Rear Of The Core Of the brain. (Indeed, Random Upward Relaxation Of The Spinal Line, and Likewise Random Full Frontal, or Descending, inhalation, or, As Appropriate, Even Occasional and Simple Spinal, or Generally Ascending, inhalation, and, In Either Case, Subsequent Full Frontal, or Descending, exhalation, or, Perhaps, As Appropriate, Even Occasional and Simple Spinal, or Generally Ascending, exhalation, All Coordinated, In An Appropriate Manner, With Simple Upward Tensing Of the bodily base, and Altogether Without Any Strategic Concentration Of attention In or Above The Core Of the brain, Is A Useful Practice Even Previous To True or Full Awakening, By Grace, To My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence. Therefore, Such Practice Should, and Must, Be Intentionally Engaged, At Random, and Simply As A “Conscious Exercise” Of the Universal etheric, or pranic, energy-field, and, Otherwise, To The Degree My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence So Reveals, As A Rudimentary, or Sometimes and Most Simple, Spiritual Exercise, During all sexual activity, and During all activities In General, Beginning In The Case Of Student-Beginners In The Way Of The Heart, and Continuing In The Case Of Practitioners In Practicing Stage One Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart and In The Case Of Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart. And This Practice, Along With All Other Herein, and Formally, Given Forms Of Conductivity Practice, Should, and Must, As Given By Me For Each Form Of Practice In The Way Of The Heart, Continue To Be Formally, Intentionally, Randomly, and Consistently Engaged, and, According To My Herein Given Instructions Relative To The Advanced and The Ultimate Stages Of Each and Every Form Of The Way Of The Heart, Fully Developed As A Direct, Potent, and Altogether Grace-Given Spiritual Exercise, In The Case Of Practitioners At Practicing Stage Two, and Beyond, In The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and In The Case Of All “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners who Are, In Each Case, Formally Acknowledged To Be Practicing In The Progressively Seeing, or, Otherwise, Truly Seeing, Context Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way of The Heart. And That Spiritual Exercise Should, and Must, As Appropriate To Each By Me Given Form Of Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, Be Engaged In Such A Manner That Practice In The Advanced and Then The Ultimate Stages Of The Way Of The Heart Develops As A Progressively Intensified and Increasingly Effective and Profound Spiritual Discipline and Process, Developed According To All My Herein, and Formally, Given Instructions, and, Thus, Stage Of Life By Stage Of Life, As Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Matures Toward, and Then Within, The Seventh Stage Of Life.)

If (At any moment In The Embrace That Is Sexual Communion) The Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm Is Strong, Generally Relax (or Even Stop) all Stimulating sexual activity (Even, If Necessary, By Disengaging the genitals), and Relax Upwards Along the spine, and Work To Focus attention and bodily energy and The Spiritual Life-Current In The Core Of the brain. Work Toward, and Into, and At The brain-Focus By Steps, but Quickly. First (and Fully), Either inhale (and, thereby, “Pull” the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Energy Upwards, Into and Via The Spinal Line) Or exhale (and, thereby, “Shoot” the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Energy Upwards, Into and Via The Spinal Line). Do This Either Suddenly Or Gradually (and, If Gradually, Either Smoothly Or In Rhythmic Starts and Stops). In Order To Establish and Maintain A Fully Connected Internal Circuit, breathe With the tongue Pressed Lightly To the roof of the mouth, and (If Possible) By breathing Via the nose, Rather Than Via an open mouth. Even Let the eyes Close and Turn Up and Back (To Prevent the bodily energy and The Spiritual Life-Current From Discharging, or “Leaking Out”, Via the eyes). And Lock The Descending (and Thus Reversing) Spinal Force In the upper body (In The Spinal Line) By Curling the hips Forward and Drawing the abdomen In and Up. (A Lock, or An Internal Upward Tension, Either Constant Or Brief and Repetitive, May Also Be Applied To the bodily base, By Drawing In, Back, and Up, Via the genitals, the perineum, and the anus, and To and Into The Spinal Line. If This Lock Tends To Increase, Rather Than Decrease, The Tendency For degenerative orgasm To Complete itself, Then Do Not Lock the bodily base, or Draw Up Via the genitals, When The Involuntary Urge Toward degenerative orgasm Is Intense, but Apply The genital Lock, or bodily base Lock, Along With Spinal inhalation and/or Spinal exhalation, At Random moments During Sexual Communion, and Also After The Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm Has Been Brought Under Control By Other Means. If Necessary, Particularly When The genital Lock, or bodily base Lock, Is Not Advisable, or Else Not Sufficient, Press two or three fingers At or Slightly Forward From the perineum, To Press the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Energy In and Back, and Up Into The Spinal Line, and, Thus, To Keep The Circuit Of bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Energy Closed At the bodily base, where degenerative orgasm Tends To Break The Circuit and, Thereby, To Discharge bodily energy, and The Living Spirit-Energy, and, In the case of men, the vital fluid stores of the reproductive system.) Once The Descending (and Thus Reversing) Spinal Tendency Of the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Current Is Turned In, Back, and Up (Along The Spinal Line), and Locked In the upper body (In The Spinal Line), Press attention, the inhaled (or exhaled) breath, the bodily energy, and The Living Spirit-Energy Deep Into the head (While Continuing To Maintain The genital Lock, or Else finger Pressure Below, and While Continuing To Curl the hips Forward and To Draw the abdomen In and Up, and While Also Continuing To Relax the body Upwards Along the spine, and With A Light Stretching Of the back of the neck, and With the tongue Pressed Lightly To the roof of the mouth, and With the breath Controlled Via the nose, If Possible, and Even Drawn Up Through the back of the throat and Up Behind the palate With Either a Gentle Or a Strong “Rasping” sound, and With the eyes Closed and Turned Up and Back). To Press attention, the inhaled (or exhaled) breath, the bodily energy, and The Living Spirit-Energy Deep Into the head, Either Press attention, the inhaled (or exhaled) breath, the bodily energy, and The Living Spirit-Energy Into the middle of the brain (and Somewhat Forward), and, Thence, Back and Up, Toward the upper rear (and The Total Crown) of the head, Or Else Press attention, the inhaled (or exhaled) breath, the bodily energy, and The Living Spirit-Energy Directly Upwards, From The Spinal Line, and Via the rear of the head, Toward the upper rear (and The Total Crown) of the head. (Some May Find That Interim Pressure, However Brief, Toward the middle and Forward In the brain Increases The Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm, Whereas Direct Pressure, Via the rear of the head, and Directly Upwards, Toward the upper rear, and The Total Crown, of the head, Does Not. In Any Case, Whichever Of The Two Paths Toward and To the upper rear, and The Total Crown, of the head Is Chosen, and Rightly Followed, The Effective Process Transfers bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Energy To and Via and From The pituitary Region Of the brain, Which Region Is Associated With The Descending, and gross, or lower, functional, and, Potentially, degenerative Tendency, or Purpose, and, Thence, Toward and To The pineal Region Of the brain, Which Region Is Associated With The Ascending, and higher functional, and Regenerative Tendency, or Purpose.) Attention, the inhaled (or exhaled) breath, the bodily energy, and The Living Spirit-Energy Should Be Held and Pressed In the head Continuously, Until The Spirit-Current (With the genital and general bodily energy) Is Felt To Run Up the spine Into the brain, Producing A Swelling Of Pleasurable and Radiant Fullness In the upper rear, and The Total Crown, of the head (and, Thus, a Conservative and Ascending, or Regenerative, “orgasm” of the brain), and (By All Of This) Reversing and Releasing The Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm. If hyperventilation and The Tendency Toward Involuntary and degenerative orgasm Do Not Immediately Cease (or Come Under Control) Via The First (Either inhaled Or exhaled) Ascent Toward The Swoon Of Fullness In the brain, the Following inhalations and exhalations Should, Like The First, Be Engaged Fully (and Via The Spinal Line, and To and Into the upper rear, and The Total Crown, of the head), As I Have Just Described. And This Conductivity Exercise Should Be Continued Thus, Until hyperventilation and The Tendency Toward Involuntary and degenerative orgasm Cease (or Come Under Control). And, When (By All Of This) hyperventilation and The Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm Come To Rest, Deeply Allow body, mind, and attention To Swoon Profoundly Toward and Into The Formless Pleasure (Of bodily energy and The Spirit-Current) In The Core Of the brain (and Ever Higher, Deep Above). Then (Whenever and However The Gathering Intention Toward Frontal Descent Returns) inhale Fully and Deeply In The Frontal Line (Even Pressing the breath Down Into the solar plexus and abdomen, While Tensing Upwards At the bodily base), In Order To Relieve Pressure In the head and Restore The Downward Frontal Conductivity (Of The Spirit Current and the General bodily energy). Then Breathe Naturally and Fully In The Full Circle. As All Of This Restores The Balance Of the body-mind, The Occasion Of Sexual Communion May Be Either Resumed Or Brought To An End.

The Moments Of Sexual Communion That Are Not Immediately Associated With Impending degenerative orgasm Generally Involve The Practice Of inhalation (and Reception) Of the bodily energy and The Spirit-Current In The Descending Pattern Of The Frontal Line and exhalation (and Release) Of the bodily energy and The Spirit-Current In The Ascending Pattern Of The Spinal Line. It Is Only At The Approach Of degenerative orgasm (or Else Only At Random, and Especially In the More Intensified moments Of Exaltation and Ecstasy That Naturally Develop In The Course Of Sexual Communion) That Yogic Sexual Activity Is To Assume A Totally (or Rather Exclusively) Ascending Character (With Both inhalation and exhalation In The Spinal Line).

In The Way Of The Heart, My sexually active Devotees (male or female) who Have physical Problems Related To high blood pressure (or who have other significant medical reasons To Avoid Pressure In the head and/or Any Other Aspects Of The Exercise Of Sexual Communion, or Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”) Should Perhaps Altogether and Generally Avoid (or Voluntarily Relinquish) The Approach Of degenerative orgasm (and, Therefore, Also The Possible Subsequent Act Of The Intentional Regenerative Conversion Of Approaching degenerative orgasm). And This May Be Done Through (Simple and Intentional) Radiant Heart-Feeling, bodily Relaxation, Pranayama (In The Form Of Easeful breathing In The Circle, Perhaps Including Light Upward Tensing Of the bodily base, but Altogether Without Pressing or Holding the breath, or Otherwise Introducing Pressure, In the head), and Thus (In General) Through The bodily (Rather Than mental, or “heady”) Control Of attention In the sex act, and Through The Consistent Feeling -Relinquishment Of The Entire Tendency Toward degenerative orgasm.

Also, In The Way Of The Heart, My sexually active Devotees (male or female) who Are, Either Chronically Or Occasionally, functionally Unable To Approach and Achieve Even degenerative orgasm (and who Are, Thus, Either Chronically Or Occasionally, functionally Unable To Redirect Impending degenerative orgasm Into A Wholly Regenerative Course) Should, Nonetheless, In The Context Of sexual activity, Practice The Art Of Right Conductivity (According To The Present Developmental Stage Of the individuals Practice Of The Way Of The Heart), Including Radiant Heart-Feeling, bodily Relaxation, Internal Upward Tension At the bodily base, Pranayama, and The bodily Control Of attention-For This Art Of Conductivity Will, Even In The Absence Of The functional Capability For orgasm, Keep sexual activity Rightly Aligned To The Devotional and Yogic Intention Required In Even every moment and Context Of Practice In The Way Of The Heart, and, Just So, It Will (To One or Another Degree) Allow Even such non-orgasmic sexual activity To Be Sublimed and, In General, Made Regenerative (Rather Than degenerative) In its total cycle of acts and effects.

There Are Two Primary Elements To conventional (or degenerative) orgasm That Must Be Brought Under Control Through Sexual Communion. The First Is The Living Spirit-Current (Including every aspect of bodily sexual energy), and The Second Is The Tendency, In the male, To Eliminate the vital chemical or hormonal fluid From the reproductive system (and The Tendency, In Both the male and the female, To internally Generate and Retain grossly, or Even Negatively, Oriented Varieties Of hormonal or other chemical secretions and bodily energies).

Generally, women Do Not, To Any Significant Degree, Eliminate vital reproductive substances (externally) During conventional orgasm. Therefore, It Is Not Necessary For sexually active female Seeing-Devotees (Otherwise Spiritually Prepared For The Practice Of Sexual Communion) To Make Any Efforts To Avoid or Suppress conventional orgasm For The Purpose Of The Conservation Of The Potential external Discharge Of vital chemistry. They May Develop The Art Of sexually Transmitted Love To The Fullest, and they May Learn To Yield themselves Full-bodily In sexual embrace, To The Degree That the cervix (which Is The Deep Center or Terminal Of the bodily energy and The Spiritual Life-Current Within the sexual organs of the human female) Is Constantly Stimulated To Feel The Spiritual Current Of Life. However, Such sexually active female Seeing-Devotees Must Consistently (or As A General Rule Of sexual Practice) Control, Convert, or Redirect the bodily energy and The Living Spiritual Energy (Which Tend To Be Discharged Via the bodily base During female degenerative orgasm, Just As In the case of male ejaculatory orgasm), and they Must Also Consistently (or As A General Rule Of Spiritual Practice) Positively (and Spiritually) Convert and Orient The (generally internal) Profusion Of hormonal (or other chemical) secretions and bodily energies Naturally Associated With all sexual activity. Therefore, Such female Seeing-Devotees Must Realize The Art Of Conducting the bodily energy and The Living Spirit-Energy Into The Natural and Right Pattern Of The Circle, Through Radiant Heart-Feeling, bodily Relaxation, Internal Upward Tension At the bodily base, Pranayama, and The bodily Control Of attention. These Disciplines Should Be Intentionally Engaged By Such female Seeing-Devotees, During sexual intercourse Generally, and At The Beginning Of the cycle of (otherwise degenerative) orgasm, and During any such cycle, So That the total cycle of sexual embrace (and Potential orgasm) May Be Converted and Sublimed, and Made Wholly Regenerative, Through Total psycho-physical and Fully Felt Participation In The (By Grace Revealed) Living Spirit-Current.

Men Tend (Via ejaculatory orgasm) To Eliminate vital reproductive chemical or hormonal fluid externally In every act of sexual intercourse, and they Otherwise Tend (As Also Do women) To Generate (and To Retain internally) grossly, or Even Negatively, Oriented Varieties Of general bodily secretions In every act of sexual intercourse (and In the event of every sexually related thought, emotion, or act). This (and Also The General Loss Of sexual energy, By both men and women, In sexual intercourse, and In the event of every sexually related thought, emotion, or act) Has A (Potentially) Degenerative Effect On the body and the mind Over time (and, In General, It Is Otherwise Part Of A Total Pattern Of egoic and Un-Happy Confinement To The First Three Stages Of Life). Therefore, Conservation (and Positive and, Ultimately, Spiritual Conversion) Of that vital (and general bodily) chemistry and bodily energy (Through Conservation, and Positive and, Ultimately, Spiritual Conversion, Of all sexually related thoughts, emotions, and actions) Generally Has A Rejuvenating and Strengthening Effect On the body and the mind Over time.

The Total Discipline Of Sexual Communion (or Else Spiritually Oriented celibacy) Serves (or Must Be Fitted To Serve) The Transitions and Processes Associated With The Advanced and The Ultimate Stages Of Life and Practice In The Way Of The Heart. However, Even All Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Should, From The Beginning Of The Student-Beginner Stage, Consistently Observe the effects that Any Loss Of vital energy and reproductive chemistry Makes In the body-mind. And, On The Basis Of Such self-Observation, sexually active Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart who Are Developing As Student-Beginners, or who Are Practicing As Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, or who Are Practicing As Would-Be-Seeing (or Progressively Seeing) “Lay Congregationists”, or who Are Practicing At Either Practicing Stage One Or Practicing Stage Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Should (As A General Rule Of their sexual Practice) Conserve sexual energy and (In The Case Of male Practitioners) the vital reproductive chemistry. In That Case, male ejaculatory orgasm (In Excess, or Even At All) and female degenerative orgasm (In Excess, or Even At All) Should (Generally, and At Will) Be Avoided (or Voluntarily Relinquished), By (To One or Another Degree) Conserving The Frequency Of sexual intercourse, and (Additionally) By Controlling conventional orgasm In sexual activity itself, By Engaging sexual activity As A sexual Form Of “Conscious Exercise”.

To Practice sexual “Conscious Exercise” Is To Engage In sexual activity In An Intentionally Relaxed Manner, By Consistently Radiating Heart-Feeling, or Love, and By Consistently Relaxing body, emotion, and mind (and, As Necessary, By Applying Internal Upward Tension At the bodily base, and By Relaxing, bodily, From the bodily base and, In A General Manner, Along The Spinal Line, and, Thus, Toward The Crown Of the head, but Without Strategic Concentration Of attention In or Above the head), and By Practicing Random Simple Pranayama (or lung-breathing Conductivity, In The Form Of inhalation-Reception, In Descent, Via The Frontal Line Of the body, and exhalation-Release, In General Ascent, Via The Spinal Line Of the body), and, Altogether, By Controlling attention, thought, and sexual Intensity (Via Intentional bodily Relaxation, and Via The Magnification Of Heart-Feeling, and Via The Maintenance Of Direct physical, sensual, and emotional Awareness In the sexual act, and Via The Constant Intention To Completely Bypass the genital discharge of sexual energy, and Via The Constant Intention To Convert, or Conduct Into The Spinal Line, all Accumulated genital energy, Whenever male ejaculatory orgasm, or Even female degenerative orgasm, Is Felt, Even Remotely, To Be Approaching). And The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” Accomplishes The Bypass Of degenerative male or female orgasms, and The Conversion Of Potential degenerative orgasms Into An energy-Conserving (or Regeneratively orgasmic) Process, By Means Of An Instant and Relatively Brief Intensification Of All The Various Elements Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” (Especially The Suspension Of Stimulating sexual activity, The Upward Tensing Of the bodily base, and The Sudden Directing Of energy Into The Spinal Line and, In A General Manner, Toward The Crown Of the head), Whenever male ejaculatory orgasm, or Even female degenerative orgasm, Is Felt, Even Remotely, To Be Approaching.

In The Case Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, The Practice Of Bypassing degenerative orgasm and Achieving Regenerative orgasm Is Not As Yogically Detailed As The Practice Of Bypassing degenerative orgasm and Achieving Regenerative orgasm In Sexual Communion, and, In Contrast To The Practice Of Sexual Communion, sexual “Conscious Exercise” Does Not Involve Either Conductivity Of The Spirit-Current (In The Manner Of My Seeing Devotees) Or Intentional Yogic Concentration In The Core Of the brain. The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” Is Simply A Matter Of Bypassing Potential degenerative orgasm and Redirecting the genitally Accumulating Natural bodily energy (Otherwise Associated With Potential degenerative orgasm) Into The Spinal Line and Into the whole body. Although, In The Process Of Bypassing degenerative orgasm and Achieving Regenerative orgasm (or The True Spinal Conductivity Of the sexual energy Otherwise Associated With degenerative orgasm), The Practitioner Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” may experience a pleasurable sensation of energy Rushing Into the spine, and Even Into the brain, the experience of Regenerative orgasm Varies In The Case Of each Such Practicing individual and In Every Occasion Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”. In Any Case, If The Practitioner Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” Avoids Breaking The Circle At the bodily base and Conducts the genitally Accumulating sexual energy Into The Spinal Line, That Itself Is A Regenerative Practice, No Matter what sensations he or she may experience, or not experience, In The Process.

Although There Are Many Similarities Between Them, sexual “Conscious Exercise” Is Not Fully The Equivalent Of Sexual Communion. Rather, sexual “Conscious Exercise” Is A Practicing Preliminary (or A Kind Of Early or Training Phase) That Prepares The Foundation For The Later (and Altogether More Advanced) Practice That Is Sexual Communion.

The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” Relies Primarily On The Control Of sexual Intensity (Through Intentional, Rather Constant, and Generalized bodily Relaxation). Therefore, In The Case Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, The Specific Yogic Controls That Achieve The Bypass and Conversion Of degenerative orgasm Are Secondary To The More General Practice Of Intentional Control Of sexual Intensity. And The Specific Yogic Controls That Achieve The Bypass and Conversion Of degenerative orgasm Are, In The Case Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, Developed More Simply (and, In General, Are Practiced Less Intensively, and Less Intensely) Than In The Case Of Sexual Communion.

The Right and True Practice Of Sexual Communion Requires An Experienced and Mature Capability Relative To The Specific Yogic Controls That Achieve The Bypass and Conversion Of degenerative orgasm. However, Because Of That Experienced and Mature Capability, The Practice Of Sexual Communion Generally Permits (or Even Requires) A Much Greater Allowance Of sexual Intensity (In The Context Of sexual activity) Than Can, In General, Be The Case In The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”. Therefore, The Practice Of Sexual Communion Emphasizes The Intensive, Intense, and Even Relatively Complex Use Of Yogic Controls (Such As lung-breathing Conductivity, The Upward Tensing Of the bodily base, The Introduction Of Various Other bodily Locks and Mudras, and Yogic Concentration In The Core Of the brain). And, As A Result Of The Intensive (and Intense) Application Of The Various Yogic Controls That Are Unique To It (or Otherwise Common To sexual “Conscious Exercise” As Well), The Practice Of Sexual Communion Generally Achieves More Deep, Intense, and Yogically Profound Regenerative orgasms Than Can, In General, Be The Case In The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”. (And, Of Course, The Right and True Practice Of Sexual Communion Is Not Only Yogically Deep, Intense, and Profound, but Spiritually Deep, Intense, and Profound As Well.)

In The Case Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, The Practice Of lung-breathing Conductivity Is Rather Secondary (or Less Intensive, Less Intense, and Yogically Less Developed Than In The Case Of Sexual Communion). Thus, Although The Practice Of lung-breathing Conductivity Is To Be Engaged In A General, Random, and Simple Manner In The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, It Is Not Otherwise Emphasized (or Made Into An Intensive and Intense Exercise) In The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”. However, The Yogic Practice Of lung-breathing Conductivity Should, As A Means For Bypassing and Converting degenerative orgasm, Be Very Intensively (and Intensely) Practiced In The Case Of Sexual Communion, and This (Along With Other Specific Yogic Controls) Allows For The Possibility Of Much Greater sexual Intensity (and Much Less Intensive Application Of Generalized bodily Relaxation) Than Can, In General, Be The Case In The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”.

Thus, In Summary, The Right and True Practice Of Sexual Communion Emphasizes Full sexual Intensity and The Intensive (and Intense) Exercise Of Specific (and Even Relatively Complex) Yogic Controls That Very Effectively Bypass and Convert degenerative orgasm, Whereas The Right and True Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” Emphasizes Effective Control Of sexual Intensity and A Comparatively Simpler (and, Generally, Both Less Intensive and Less Intense) Yogic Approach To The Bypass and Conversion Of degenerative orgasm. However, With The Foundation Of Such sexual “Conscious Exercise” Rightly, Truly, and Very Effectively Established, The Eventual Transition To The Practice Of Sexual Communion Can, When All Other Necessary Qualifications Appear, Be Readily Made.

In The Case Of male Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, vital reproductive fluid Should (As A General Rule) Be Conserved, Except When reproduction itself Is Desired. Therefore, All sexually active male Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Must Fully Realize The Art Of Bypassing the ejaculatory orgasm. And Both male and female Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Must Practice The Regenerative Art Of Controlling, Converting, Redirecting, and Conducting the bodily energy and (In Due Course) The Living Spirit-Energy Associated With sexual pleasure Generally (and With conventional, or degenerative, orgasm Most Especially) In The Circle Of the body-mind.

Generally, If conventional (or ejaculatory) male orgasm (or Even conventional female orgasm) Is Allowed To Occur Only Infrequently, it Will Not Be Followed By Any Significantly Negative or limiting bodily (or Even Spiritual) Effects. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, In The Case Of Seeing Devotees Practicing Sexual Communion (and In The Case Of Student-Beginners, and Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, and Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners, and Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Devotees At Practicing Stage Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart, who Practice sexual “Conscious Exercise” As A Means To Conserve vital energy and reproductive chemistry During sexual activity), conventional male or female orgasm May (Perhaps) Be Occasionally Allowed. (And, Of Course, conventional male and female orgasm Must Be Allowed, and Even, In A Truly Sacred Sacrificial, or Serving, Manner, Cultivated, whenever There Is A Right and Specific Intention For the female partner to become pregnant.)

In The Case Of younger male Practitioners Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” (who are no older than their twenties, or perhaps early thirties), ejaculatory orgasm May (Perhaps) Be Allowed As Often As once or twice per month, Whereas, In The Case Of male Practitioners Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” who are older than their twenties or early thirties (and, As An Optimum General Rule Of Practice, Even In The Case Of male Practitioners Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” who are no older than their twenties or early thirties), ejaculatory orgasm Should (As A General Rule Of Practice) Be Allowed No More Than once per month. And, As An Expression Of The self-Renouncing Attitude and The psycho-physical Stability That Must Be Associated With Ever-Increasing Maturity In The Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, All male Practitioners Of Sexual Communion Must (Whether In The Context Of The Fully Established “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life, Or In The Context Of The “Advanced” Fourth Stage Of Life, Or In The Context Of The Fifth Stage Of Life, Or In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life) Consistently Avoid (or Voluntarily Relinquish) ejaculatory orgasm, Such That ejaculatory orgasm Is (As A General Rule Of Practice) Allowed Either Not At All Or No More Than once every one to six months (With The Actual Frequency Conservatively Determined By The Characteristics and The Requirements Of the individuals Practice Of The Way Of The Heart At Any Particular Developmental Stage).

Just So, female Practitioners Of Either sexual “Conscious Exercise” Or Sexual Communion Should (Perhaps) Limit The Frequency Of conventional (or Unconverted and degenerative) orgasm To Approximately The Same Order Of Frequency Indicated For male Practitioners Of Either sexual “Conscious Exercise” Or Sexual Communion. (However, Since conventional female orgasm Does Not, In General, Involve The Immediate Significant external Discharge Of vital reproductive substances, The Measure Of Allowable Frequency Of conventional orgasm, In The Case Of female Practitioners Of Either sexual “Conscious Exercise” Or Sexual Communion, Should Be The Subsequently Observed Effect Of conventional orgasm On the individuals general health and On The Intensity, and On The Summary Quality and Effectiveness, Of the individuals Total Practice Of The Way Of The Heart. Therefore, In Any Particular Case Of A female Practitioner Of Either sexual “Conscious Exercise” Or Sexual Communion, The Intelligently Allowable Frequency Of conventional orgasm May Be More or Even Less Frequent Than In The Case Of Any Particular male Practitioner Of Either sexual “Conscious Exercise” Or Sexual Communion.)

In Any and Every Case (Whether Of The male Or Of The female Practitioner Of Either sexual “Conscious Exercise” Or Sexual Communion), The Frequency Of conventional orgasm (or Even The Decision To Control and Conserve conventional orgasm In Every Occasion Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, or To Control, Conserve, and Convert conventional orgasm In Every Occasion Of Sexual Communion) Should Be Determined By A “Consideration” Of Such Factors As age, degree of vitality, state of health, The General Orientation Of Practice At Any Developmental Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, and The Effect Of conventional orgasm On The Various Features Of daily (and Meditative) Practice Of The Way Of The Heart.

If It Is To Be Effective, The male Conservation Of vital reproductive fluid (In Sexual Communion, and In The “Conscious Exercise” Of sexual activity) Must (Whenever It Is Performed) Be Real and Complete. In Sexual Communion (and In The Simpler, and Not Yet Fully Spiritually Active and Spiritually Responsible, “Conscious Exercise” Of sexual activity Engaged By Student-Beginners, and By Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, and By All Practitioners At Either Practicing Stage One Or Practicing Stage Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and By All Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart), The Control and Conservation Of male ejaculation Is (Like Every Other Aspect Of sexual self-Control and sexual Conservation, In both male and female Practitioners Of Such sexual self-Control and sexual Conservation) Achieved, In The Way Of The Heart, Primarily By Means Of Radiant Heart-Feeling, bodily Relaxation, Internal Upward Tension At the bodily base, Pranayama, and The Control Of attention. In The Case Of male Practitioners (Of Either Sexual Communion Or The Simpler “Conscious Exercise” Of sexual activity), finger Pressure At or Near the perineum During , or Else Immediately (or, As A Preventive Measure, At any sexually active moment) Previous To, ejaculatory orgasm May (Perhaps) Be Applied, In Order To Prevent Elimination Of vital reproductive fluid, but, Once The Event Of ejaculation Has Already Begun, Even Such A Practice Tends Merely To Force the vital reproductive fluid Into the bladder (From which it Is Eliminated later, Via urination). Therefore, In Order To Completely Conserve the vital reproductive fluid (and Also Avoid Irritation Of the prostate gland and the male sex organs Generally), finger Pressure At or Near the perineum Should Generally Be Used (If At All) Only To Keep The Circuit Of bodily energy and Spirit-Energy Closed At the bodily base, Whereas ejaculation itself Should, As A General Rule, Simply Be Avoided (or Voluntarily Relinquished), By Means Of The Right Practice Of Radiant Heart-Feeling, bodily Relaxation, Internal Upward Tension At the bodily base, Pranayama, and The Control Of attention.

Male Practitioners Of (Especially) sexual “Conscious Exercise” (and, but Much Less Frequently, Even Some male Practitioners Of Sexual Communion) May (In The Context, and As A Direct Result, Of sexual activity) Tend (At times) Toward Involuntary (and, Apparently, Not Otherwise Completely Controllable) ejaculatory orgasm. On those occasions (Of Apparently Diminished Ability To Control ejaculation), male Practitioners May Choose To Use finger Pressure (At or Near the perineum) To Suppress ejaculation During (or, Preferably, Immediately Previous To) Actual ejaculatory orgasm. This Practice Is (When Accompanied By The Continued Conductivity Exercise Of Radiant Heart-Feeling, bodily Relaxation, Internal Upward Tension At the bodily base, Pranayama, and The Control Of attention) Superior To Mere Indulgence In ejaculatory orgasm, but Even This Practice Must (Except, At Most, As An Occasional, or Rarely Necessary, Device) Be Progressively Outgrown (or, Over time, Be Made Generally Unnecessary) By The Persistent Application Of The Practices Of Radiant Heart-Feeling, bodily Relaxation, Internal Upward Tension At the bodily base, Pranayama, and The Control Of attention, Such That The Complete Control and Bypass Of ejaculation May, As A General Rule, Be Managed By These Means Alone (Without The Application Of finger Pressure At or Near the perineum). And This Ability (To Completely Control and Bypass ejaculation, Without Requiring The Application Of finger Pressure To Suppress The ejaculatory Tendency or Event) Must (In Order To Provide A Right Foundation For The Later Progressive Development Of The Yogic sexual Practice) Be Established (At Least As A Basic and Generally Consistent Capability) Before (or, Otherwise, Coincident With) Maturity In The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart.

In The Case Of Both male and female Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, Sexual Communion (and, but, Generally, To A Lesser Degree, sexual “Conscious Exercise”) Releases (Especially Via Fully Developed Regenerative orgasms) A Profusion Of bodily energy (and, Certainly In The Case Of True Sexual Communion, A Profusion Of Spirit-Energy Itself), Including many kinds of Positively (and, Certainly In The Case Of Fullest True Sexual Communion, Also Spiritually) Converted hormonal (or other chemical) secretions, and This Profusion Is (Thus) Released All Over the body and its brain (and Not Merely In The Region Of the genitals and the bodily base). The hormonal (and other chemical) flows Thus Released and Retained Within the body Are Of a Rejuvenating kind, Conducive Toward psycho-physical health and General psycho-physical Well-being. This Is Because the hormonal (and other chemical) secretions Stimulated, Converted, and Conserved In the body (Rather Than Eliminated From the body) During (Right) Sexual Communion (and Right sexual “Conscious Exercise”) are of the Non-Stress variety.

People under the daily circumstances of life in the common world Tend To Be Constantly Stimulated To Produce hormonal secretions of the Stress variety, and such secretions Tend To Depress or Even Destroy health and General psycho-physical Well-being Over time. Thus, One Of The Primary Motives Toward sexual activity and conventional orgasm In the common world Is The Urge To Release Stress and Eliminate The chemical Results Of Stress, Whereas Sexual Communion (and, but, Generally, To A Lesser Degree, sexual “Conscious Exercise”), In The Midst Of a Total life Of self-Transcending Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, Transcends All Stress-Bound Motives and Results.

The General Conductivity Of bodily energy (and Of The By Grace Revealed Spirit-Energy) In Sexual Communion, and, Also, The General Conductivity Of bodily energy In The Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, Keeps The Circle Of the body-mind Rightly Polarized (and, In General, Establishes the body-mind In A Feeling Of Balance, or Of Equanimity, and Of “Fullness”). Sexual Communion (Rightly and Fully Practiced) Fills the entire body-mind With Balanced Flows Of Living Spirit-Energy and Delight. Also, Sexual Communion and (but, Generally, To A Lesser Degree) The Right Practice Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” Fill the entire body-mind Even With Positive Flows Of An hormonal, or other chemical, Profusion, and With Flows Of Positively (and, In The Case Of Sexual Communion, Even Spiritually) Converted Natural bodily energy.

Sexual Communion (and, but, Generally, To A Lesser Degree, sexual “Conscious Exercise”) Even (Generally) Rejuvenates the body-mind, By Positively (and, Especially In The Case Of Sexual Communion, Spiritually) Stimulating all the Primary (or Otherwise Critical) centers of the body, and By Maintaining The Right Polarization Of The bodily (or psycho-physical) Flows, and By Preventing The Generation Of merely grossly (or Even Negatively) Oriented fluids From the hormonal (and other bodily) centers, and By Maintaining The Right (and, Certainly In The Case Of True Sexual Communion, Spiritually Auspicious) Attitude, Direction, and Intent Of mind (or psyche), emotion, and body. (Also, Secondarily, the vital reproductive fluid itself, Retained In the body Of The male Practitioner Of Either Sexual Communion Or sexual “Conscious Exercise”, Has A Readily Apparent Rejuvenative Effect.) And, Because Much Of The Rejuvenative (or, Altogether, Regenerative) Effect Of Either Sexual Communion Or sexual “Conscious Exercise” Is A Direct Result Of the Fully Developed Regenerative orgasm, The Primary Element Of Either Sexual Communion Or sexual “Conscious Exercise” Is The Conversion Of every (Potential) degenerative orgasm Into a Truly Regenerative orgasm. (Therefore, Although The Bypassing Of the degenerative orgasm Is A Necessary functional Element Of Both Sexual Communion and sexual “Conscious Exercise”, The Fully Effective Conversion Of the Potential degenerative orgasm Into an Actual Regenerative orgasm, or A Yogically Ascending, and, In The Case Of male Practitioners, Non-ejaculatory, or, In The Case Of female Practitioners, Entirely Non-degenerative, and, In All Cases, Inherently and Fully Regenerative, Process, Is Always The True Purpose Of Even Such Bypass. And, Because Truly Regenerative, or Yogically Ascending, orgasms May Serve A Very Important Role In The Achievement and The Maintenance Of psycho-physical health and General psycho-physical Well-being, and In The General Support Of The Developing Spiritual Process Of The Way Of The Heart, Regenerative orgasms Should-Generally, In The Case Of sexually active Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, Whether male Or female-Be Not Only Permitted but Actually, and Even Intensively, Cultivated , Such That, Generally, Regenerative orgasms Should, If Possible, Be Fully Achieved Even several times In Each Occasion Of Either Sexual Communion Or sexual “Conscious Exercise”.)

Equanimity Is Inherently Regenerative. Enervation and Negative Accumulation Are Inherently Degenerative.

Equanimity and Regeneration (and Not Enervation, Negative Accumulation, and Degeneration) Are The Genuine Effects Of True Sexual Communion (and Of Rightly Practiced sexual “Conscious Exercise”). Neither Stress Nor the self-Contraction Is Supported or Intensified By True (and, Necessarily, Spiritually Active) Sexual Communion (or By Rightly Practiced sexual “Conscious Exercise”). And Love-Bliss Is The Ultimate Substance (and Grace-Given Gift) Of True Sexual Communion (and, Potentially, Of Rightly Practiced sexual “Conscious Exercise”).

The Primary Function Of Sexual Communion and Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” Is (By The Maintenance Of Devotional attention Even In The Context Of sexual activity) To More and More Fully and Completely Align and Surrender the Total personality To Me. And The Special Function Of (Such Devotional) Sexual Communion Is To Surrender the Total (and Even sexual) personality To My Tangibly Revealed Spirit-Presence, So That My Grace-Given Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence Is (Thereby, and Always) Intimately Found, Made Resonant In The Circle, and Tangibly Expressed In the frontal human character.

Sexual Communion and sexual “Conscious Exercise” Are Not To Be Equated With The Practice Of Ascending Meditation In The Context Of Either The “Advanced” Fourth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart Or The Fifth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart. Rightly Practiced, sexual “Conscious Exercise” (Beginning In The “Original” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart) and Sexual Communion (Beginning In The Fully Established “Basic” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart) Can and Should Serve The Relaxation Of The self-Contracted Search For gross bodily self-Fulfillment and gross bodily self-Release, and Practice Of Either sexual “Conscious Exercise” Or Sexual Communion Can and Should Also (Even From Its Beginning) Serve The Right Polarization, The Progressive Purification, and (Certainly In The Case Of True Sexual Communion) The Spiritual Energization Of The Spinal Line. However, Even Right, Full, and Mature Spiritual Practice Of Sexual Communion Cannot (Except Perhaps In The Case Of Exceptional Yogis) Immediately Involve or Directly Achieve The Higher (and The Very Highest) Processes Associated With The Ascent Of The Living Spirit-Current Through and Beyond The Ajna Door, For Such Processes Require A Discipline and A Realization That Goes Beyond The bodily Exercises Of attention.

Whatever Support or Effect It May Add To The Later Advanced Stages Of Life (and The Ultimate Stages Of Life) In The Way Of The Heart, Even Sexual Communion (Like sexual “Conscious Exercise”) Is Basically A Discipline Relative To the frontal personality, Whereby The Knots That limit Love and Conductivity In The Frontal Line (and The Simpler, or General, Conductivity Of The Spinal Line) Are Opened To The Spirit-Current (or Love-Bliss Itself). Even So, The Practice Of Sexual Communion, With The Frequency Of sexual occasion Uniquely Moderated (In The Case Of Most sexually active Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) In The Context Of The “Advanced” Fourth Stage Of Life, and In The Context Of The Fifth Stage Of Life, and In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life, Is (In Principle, or In The Case Of those who Rightly Choose It and Rightly Practice It) Compatible With All The Advanced Stages Of Life and All The Ultimate Stages Of Life In The Way Of The Heart.

There Is A Necessary functional, practical, relational, and Cultural Prerequisite (and Basis) For Full and Right Practice Of Sexual Communion. That Necessary Prerequisite Is True Sila . And The Most Basic Discipline Of True Sila (In The Spiritual Context Of sexual Relatedness) Is The Intentional and self-Transcending Concentration Of sexual Relatedness (and sexual activity) In The Circumstance and Heart-Practice Of What I Call “True Intimacy”.

Indeed, True Intimacy Is A Subject Of Study and “Consideration” (and, Therefore, Of Progressive Adaptation and Demonstration) From The Very Beginning Of The Way Of The Heart. Therefore, The Practice Of True Intimacy Is (but In An Only Potentially Spiritual, or, Otherwise, Only In A Rudimentary Sense, Spiritual, Manner) To Be Engaged (and Progressively Developed) Even By Student-Novices (Formally Approaching The Way Of The Heart), and, Thereafter, By Student-Beginners In The Way Of The Heart, and By Practitioners In Practicing Stages One and Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and By Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, and Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart. Even So, True Intimacy Is (Beyond Its Simplest human Components) Necessarily A Spiritual, and, Ultimately, Transcendental, and Divine, Discipline That, Therefore, Can (In The Fullest Sense) Begin (or Be Fully Demonstrated) Only When Practice Of The Way Of The Heart (In Either Its Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Or Its Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form) Is (By Grace) Established In The (Fully Established) “Basic” (Spiritual, and Truly Spiritually Responsible) Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life.

In The Way Of The Heart, The Fullest Commitment and Capability For The Discipline Of True Intimacy Cannot Appear Until the individual Both Hears Me and Sees Me. Therefore, Most Fundamental self-Understanding, Real self-Discipline, and Basic human Equanimity Must First (By Grace) Be Inherited From The personal Struggle With ego-Bound emotional-sexual Tendencies, and Then the Total body-mind (Including its emotional-sexual Dimension) Must Be Submitted To The Real (and Grace-Given) Spiritual Process. Such Preparation and Capability Is Signified By The Awakening Of Full Spiritual Responsibility, In The Case Of My “Lay Congregationist” Devotees who Both Hear Me and See Me, and In The Case Of My Devotees who Enter The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or At Least When Real Seeing Begins To Develop In The Context Of The Second Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart). And Even The Seeing Devotee who Practices The Discipline Of True Intimacy In The Way Of The Heart Will Continue To Mature (Spiritually and Progressively) In That Discipline (and In The Discipline Of Sexual Communion, If he or she Is sexually active) In and Beyond The Context Of The Fully Established “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart.

True Intimacy Is Not any relationship itself, but Real and Effective Heart-Practice In that relationship.

True Intimacy Is A Sadhana (or A Spiritual, and, Ultimately, Transcendental, and Divine, Discipline), Not merely a conventional social ideal.

True Intimacy Is A self-Transcending Discipline That Directly Transcends The Dissociative Method Of egoity, The Idea Of the psycho-physical self As An Owner Of others, and The Idea Of others As Property. Therefore, True Intimacy Replaces The Motive Of egoic Independence and The Psychology Of Ownership (Of ones intimate partner, or partners, or Even ones children) With The Practice Of self-Transcending Love and The Heart-Culture Of (Most Fundamental) self-Understanding and Happy self-Discipline In Relationship To ones intimate partner (or partners), ones Total family (and Community), and all other beings.

True Intimacy Economizes (or Balances) Itself, Inherently and Inevitably. Therefore, If True Intimacy Is Practiced and Realized, The Possibility Of Multiple relationships (or Simultaneous emotional-sexual relationships between any one individual and more than one partner) Becomes Minimal (and, In The General Case, Even Unlikely). Indeed, An Extraordinary Heart-Balance Must (or Would Necessarily Have To) Be Realized By each one and all In The Unique, Rare, and True Intimate Circle Of Multiple Love. For This Reason, or Because Of The Great Requirements Involved In The Real Practice Of True Intimacy (and The Real Practice Of All The Forms Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Discipline In The Way Of The Heart), True Intimacy (Fully, Intelligently, and Feelingly “Considered”) Will, In Most (Although Not Necessarily All) Cases, Freely Confine Itself To a relationship with (and A Real, or Really Practiced, Commitment To) Only one other (or one partner) During any Significant period of time (or Even During an entire lifetime).

True Intimacy Is A One-Pointed Discipline Of the psycho-physical self, In Which each partner Is Required (or Always Called) To Practice intimate relationship As Spiritual Intimacy (or As A Means Of self-Transcending God-Communion).

True Intimacy Is A Cooperative Union Between individuals whose Commitment To one another Is Based On A Spiritual (and, Ultimately, Transcendental, and Divine) Intention That Is Freely, Directly, and Fully Expressed Through the emotional-sexual character of each partner.

True Intimacy Is Necessarily An Intentional, Active, and moment to moment Practice, Not Merely An Automatic or Given Situation and Fact Of daily life To Be Passively Indulged or Suffered. And The Primary Import Of That Practice Is That It, When Fully Established, Serves The Magnification, Conservation, and Conversion Of The Grace-Given Spirit-Current In the daily life of each partner. Therefore, Fullest (or Fully Spiritually Responsible) True Intimacy Is Itself Sexual Communion, Whether Or Not the partners Choose To Be sexually active.

True Intimacy Is The Practice Of self-Transcending Love Of ones intimate partner (or partners), While Releasing and Identifying that one (and Even every one at all) In The Forms Of The Divine Person.

True Intimacy Is, Inherently, A Spiritual Condition and Process, and, Therefore, It Cannot (In The Fullest, or Truly Spiritual, Sense) Begin Previous To Spirit-Baptism (or Until There Is Devotional Entrance Into The Spirit-Activated Context Of The Fully Established “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life).

True Intimacy Is Not A Matter Of self-Indulgence and conventional self-Fulfillment, Although It Does Not, In Principle, Exclude pleasures Of Love and sexual intimacy.

True Intimacy, Fully (Spiritually) Established, Is A Truly human Yoga, A Discipline Of the psycho-physical self That Purifies Tendencies Of desire and mind, Counters (or Responsively Releases) The Effort Of self-Contraction, Balances and Energizes the psycho-physical being With Spirit-Force, and Serves The Process Of Divine Self-Realization Through Real self-Transcendence.

True Intimacy Requires (or Always Calls For) Real and Steady Commitment Of attention and human energy.

True Intimacy Requires (or Always Calls For) The Real and Steady Expression Of Love.

True Intimacy Requires (or Always Calls For) Real and Steady Relinquishment Of egoic Independence, or all egoically “self-Possessed” demands, expectations, and complaints, all rituals of rejection, mistrust, and reactivity, and all strategies of depression, pleasurelessness, and promiscuity (or All Merely Casual, or reactively Motivated, or Negatively Intended, or Otherwise Un-“Considered”, Merely ego-Serving, and Mechanical Indulgence or Involvement In emotional-sexual activity with any other or others, or even with that, or any, established intimate partner).

Therefore, True Intimacy Requires (or Always Calls For) Real and Steady Relinquishment Of Even any and all limits On Love.

As A Natural Means To True Intimacy, the partners In Love Are Required (or Always Called) To Incarnate The Two Primary Signs (or Complementary and Polar Opposite Aspects) Of The Divine and Universal Natural Dynamic Of Life. Therefore, the masculine partner Is Required (or Always Called) To Submit himself To Incarnate (or Extend) The Divine Husbanding (or Conserving) Power (or To Practice The True Mans Yoga) Through Steady Control (or Right Directing) Of the energy and attention of himself and his feminine partner, and By Constantly Arousing (In himself and In his feminine partner) The Motive Of Right Restraint, Right Intention, and Right Use Of human energy and attention. And the feminine partner Is Required (or Always Called) To Submit herself To Incarnate (or To Extend) The Divine Goddess-Power (or To Practice The True Womans Yoga) Of Attraction, self-Submission, and Nurturing, By Constantly Feeding her masculine partner With The Life-Power Of her personal energy and attention, and By Constantly Arousing The Motive Of Heart-Submission and Heart-Radiance In herself and In her masculine partner.

True Intimacy Is Typically heterosexual, Although True Intimacy Between homosexual partners Is A Possibility. Any Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart who Is “Considering” The Possibility Of True homosexual Intimacy Must First Go Through The Ordeal Of Discovering Whether he or she Is Truly homosexual, By Transcending The Patterns Of Un-Happiness That Might Dictate homosexuality As A False (and Necessarily Un-Happy) Choice. And those who Enter Into The Practice Of True Intimacy As homosexuals Must Be Capable Of The Same self-Transcending Love In Practice That Is Required Of heterosexuals, and The “Husband-Goddess” Dynamic, or The Complementary Play Of Conservative (or Restraining Power) and Attractive (or Radiating Power), Will Generally Be Exhibited Just As Clearly, Directly, and Fully In The Case Of True Intimacy Between psychologically Polarized homosexual partners As In The Case Of True Intimacy Between physically (and psychologically) Polar Opposite (or heterosexual) partners.

In The Way Of The Heart, The Sadhana Of True Intimacy Is A Specialized Form Of The Basic Sadhana Of self-Transcending Submission To Me (The Hridaya-Samartha Sat-Guru). Thus (and Thereby), The Sadhana Of True Intimacy Is, In The Way Of The Heart, A Direct Extension Of The Basic Sadhana Of Direct and Effective Acceptance Of My Husbanding (or Restraining, Guiding, and Awakening) Influence (and, Thus and Thereby, Of The Husbanding, or Restraining, Guiding, and Awakening, Influence Of The Divine Person or Reality) By All My Listening Devotees, Hearing Devotees, and Seeing Devotees, male or female. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, Only The Orientation Of True Intimacy (Established, In Practice, By Means Of Fullest Devotion To Me) Allows emotional-sexual relationship (With or Without sexual activity) To Directly Serve The Spiritual, and, Ultimately, Transcendental, and Divine, Process (By Commanding Even emotional-sexual energy and attention To Achieve One-Pointed Concentration, Free Of promiscuity, or Casual Distraction).

In The Way Of The Heart, The Sadhana Of True Intimacy Is A Specialized Form Of The Basic Sadhana Of Devotional Communion With Me (and The Acceptance, Thus and Thereby, Of The “Bright” Attractive and Self-Radiant Condition Of The Self-Existing Divine Person or Reality). Therefore, Only The Orientation Of True Intimacy (Established Progressively, Through Effective Devotion To Me, From The Beginning Of The Way Of The Heart, and Fully Demonstrated In Practice By All Seeing Devotees In The Way Of The Heart) Allows emotional-sexual intimacy (With or Without sexual activity) To Directly Serve The Spiritual, and, Ultimately, Transcendental, and Divine, Process (By Allowing emotional-sexual energy and attention To Achieve Loves Full Aliveness, Free Of The Motive Of self-Suppression and The Mood Of Life-Depression).

The Real Practice Of The Total (or Spiritually Full) Discipline That Is True Intimacy Is Neither An Obligation Nor A True Capability Of Student-Beginners, Yet Non-Seeing “Lay Congregationists”, and Yet Non-Seeing Practitioners At Practicing Stages One or Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, Because Such individuals Have Not Yet Completed The Total Basic Process Of Hearing and (First) Seeing. Therefore, From The Beginning, Student-Beginners Of The Way Of The Heart (and Student-Novices, Approaching The Way Of The Heart) Are First Called To (Simply, Directly, More and More Effectively, and As An Expression Of their Devotion To Me, and As A Means Of self-Reflection) Surrender (and, Thereby , To Relinquish) all promiscuous (or Merely Casual) and Excessive (or Wastefully self-Indulgent) sexual behavior (In thought, emotion, speech, and bodily deed), and they (As Well As Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, and Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, “Lay Congregationists”, and Practitioners At Practicing Stages One and Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart) Are Also (On That Basis) Called To Observe (and To Feel Beyond) their egoic (or self-Contracted) emotional-sexual motives, tendencies, and activities In every moment, So That they May (Eventually, and By Grace) Understand themselves Most Fundamentally and (Thereby, and By Real and Grace-Given Seeing) Set The Heart Free From emotional-sexual Bondage. Therefore, By All Of This (and By The Constant “Consideration” Of My Word Of Instruction Relative To True Intimacy, and By The Establishment Of A Generally Conservative sexual Practice Altogether), Student-Beginners (and Even Student-Novices), Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, “Lay Congregationists”, and Practitioners At Practicing Stages One and Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Must Progressively (and, In The Fullest, or Spiritual, Sense, Only Eventually) Adapt To The Profound Discipline Of True Intimacy.

For My Seeing Devotees who Are Involved In any emotional-sexual relationship, The Full (or Fully Spiritual) Discipline Of True Intimacy Becomes A Necessary Practice (or A Necessary Realization Of Practice) At, and Beyond, Practicing Stage Three Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and, Otherwise, Once (On The Basis Of True Hearing) True Seeing Awakens In The Course Of “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart. (In The Context Of The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, The Full Spiritual Discipline Of True Intimacy, Like The Fullest Commitment To A Spiritually Oriented celibate Discipline, Cannot Become A Fully Presumed Obligation In Practice Until The Progressively Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart Is Completed, In True Seeing. However, In The Case Of those who Are Already Involved In any emotional-sexual relationship, Adaptation To Many Of The Simple human Features Of The Practice Of True Intimacy Should Have Occurred, Progressively, Previous To The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, and, In The Spiritually Developing Context Of The Progressively Seeing Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, My Word Of Instruction Relative To True Intimacy Should, In The Case Of those who Are Already Involved In any emotional-sexual relationship, Serve As A Useful Measure Of Preparedness For The Further emotional-sexual Responsibilities Associated With Advancement To The Actually Seeing Stages Of The Way Of The Heart.)

Only A Fool Will Fail To Cultivate The Relationship To The Beloved. Therefore, Only A Fool Will Fail To Cultivate The human Well-being and The Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Realization Of Loves partner In Love. And This Is Also True: The ego (or the self-Contracted individual) Is Just Such A Fool!

The emotional-sexual ego Constantly Hunts For an other. The ego-“I” (or self-Contraction) Hunts (or Seeks) an other (Even all others and The Total Objective Cosmos) In Order To Be Gratified, Consoled, and Protected. The Compulsive Hunting (or Search) For an other Is Generated By The Feelings Of Un-Happiness, Emptiness, and Separateness That Possess and Characterize the self-Contracted being.

Once an other Is Found, the ego-“I” Clings To the other, At First pleasurably, and Then Aggressively. The ego-“I” Depends On the other For Happiness, and, Over time, the ego-“I” Makes Greater and Greater Demands On the other For Fulfillment Of itself (In all of its desires). Often, In time, the other Becomes Depressed and Exhausted By This Demand (and Thus Leaves, or Dies). Just As Likely, the ego-“I” Discovers, Over time, That the other Cannot or Will Not Satisfy The Absolute Demand For attention and Consolation. In That Case, the ego-“I” Feels Betrayed, and the ego-“I” Begins The Strategy Of Punishing, Rejecting, and Abandoning the other.

Every conditionally Manifested being Has (In time) Often Been The Proposed Victim Of This Strategy Of Separate and Separative selves. Even More, Until The Heart Gives Way To Divine Love-Bliss, every conditionally living being Is The Original Genius and Grand Performer Of This Strategy Of Separate and Separative selves. It Is The Strategy Of Narcissus, and It Is The Dreadful Work Of all conditionally living beings who Are Not Awake To The Truth Beyond the ego-“I”.

If There Is To Be Real Happiness, This Cycle Of egoic “self-Possession” and other-Dependency (or object-Dependency Generally) Must Be Transcended. In The Way Of The Heart, It Is Transcended Through Most Fundamental self-Understanding, and Through self-Transcending Love, Service, self-Discipline, and Meditation (In Responsive Devotional Relationship To Me, and, Thus and Thereby, In Responsive Devotional Relationship To The Divine Person), and (Eventually, By Grace) Through Direct Realization Of The Self-Radiant (or Inherently Spiritual), Self-Existing (or Transcendental), and (Ultimately) Divine Self-Condition Of Being (Itself). In This Manner, The Inherent Happiness Of The Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Self Replaces The Fruitless Search (or Hunt) For Happiness By the self-Contracted and Dependent conditional self.

The Way Of The Heart Is Founded On Real Transcendence Of The Search (or Wanting Need) For Happiness. That Is To Say, The Way Of The Heart Is Founded On The Magnification Of Inherent (or Real) Happiness, or Happiness Itself. Therefore, I Say, Come To Me When You Are Already Happy. In Other Words, Come To Me By Truly Turning To Me. Do Not Come To Me With A Mere Outward Show Of Devotion (While You Remain Inwardly Dissociated and Possessed By self-Contraction?, For, If You Do So, You Will Come As A Seeker, Wanting Happiness From Me, and, Yet, Unable To Reach To Me and To Find Me, and, Thus and Thereby, To Find (or To “Locate”) Happiness Itself.

Therefore, Come To Me (To Listen, and To Hear) By Surrendering To Me (By Heart). And Do Not Come To Me To See Me Until You Have Truly Heard Me and Become Founded (Thereby) In The Real Devotional Practice Of self-Surrender, self-Forgetting, and Effective self-Transcendence.

Do Not Come To Me In The Manner Of A Seeker, Wanting To Depend On Me To Make Your Separate and Separative self Happy. Come To Me For Me Only. I Am Happiness Itself (Prior To Your Separate and Separative self). Therefore, Come To Me To Surrender and Forget Your Separate and Separative self (which is Your Un-Happiness, Full Of Wanting Need and Search).

You Come To Me Truly (or Rightly) When You Are No Longer Resorting To Your conditional self (or ego-“I”). Indeed, You Cannot Even Find Me (or “Locate” My “Brightness” and My Heart-Blessing) Until You Are Heart-Ready To Resort To Me. Therefore, Do Not Seek Happiness From Me. Rather, Be Happy With Me.

Listen To Me By Right (and Inherently Happy) Devotional Intimacy With Me. In This Manner, Grow To Hear Me, and, By Hearing Me, Take Your Stand With Me In Prior (or Inherent) Happiness. Then Let This Happiness (or Open-Hearted Feeling) Be (Progressively, Then Perfectly) Magnified In and By The Sight Of My “Bright” Company.

Indeed, To Practice The Way Of The Heart (In Its Fullness), You Must Not Seek Happiness From any other. To Practice The Way Of The Heart (In Its Fullness), You Must Be Fundamentally Free Of Wanting Need (or The Craving For Happiness). Those who (Having Listened To Me) Hear Me (and Understand themselves Most Fundamentally) Have Really (and Most Fundamentally) Understood their own Wanting Need and Search For Happiness. They Understand The Wanting Need and Search For Happiness To Be The Effect and The Sign Of self-Contraction (Whereby Inherent Happiness Is Forgotten, and Is Otherwise Projected Outwardly, To Be Sought and Demanded In every kind of other or thing, and Even, As The Ultimate and Imaginary Other or Thing, To Be Called and Abused As “God”). Therefore, those who Truly Hear Me Freely Relinquish That Wanting Need and Search.

The Way Of The Heart Is Begun With Listening, Until (In and By Means Of The Event and Process Of True Hearing) The Search For Happiness (Via The Projection Of Wanting Need) Is Understood (Most Fundamentally) and Released At The Heart. And When The Unfulfilled (and Unfulfillable) Wanting Need (or Search) For Happiness Is Thus Understood (and The Native “Taste” Of Happiness, or Even Love, Is, To A Significant Degree, Regained), My Hearing Devotee Is Heart-Awake To See Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To “See” Happiness Itself). And any one who Truly Sees Me (and who, Thus and Thereby, Really “Sees” Happiness Itself) Becomes Moved (By The Grace-Given “Sight” Of Happiness Itself) To Be My Perfect Devotee (Not By Seeking and Un-Love, but In Love, As Love, or In and As The Grace-Given and Freely Giving Happiness Itself, That Sets all others Free By Love, or By Happiness Itself, and Stands With all others Freely In Happiness Itself, Self-Radiant As Love, or The Real and Inherently Perfect Love-Bliss).

In The Way Of The Heart, The Dramatization Of Wanting Need (or The egoic Search, That Says “I Need you, or this, or that In Order To Be Happy”) Is, As A Matter Of moment to moment self-Discipline (or Sila), To Be Released and Replaced By A “Yoga Of Necessity”. The Basically Given conditions Of Existence Associated With Every Stage Of Life Are (When Necessary) To Be Embraced and Cared For (and Not Avoided or Abused) By Loves Work (or The self-Transcending Yoga Of Right Practice). Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, what Is Necessary (or Basically Given) Is To Be Allowed (but Converted In The Context Of True Yoga), and what Is Only A Wanting Need (or An Expression Of self-Contraction, Un-Happiness, and Un-Love) Is To Be Constantly Felt Beyond (In Happiness Itself, and Via Love Itself).

Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, True Intimacy (and Also Right Sexual Communion, and Rightly Practiced sexual “Conscious Exercise”) Is Such A Yoga Of Necessity (Transcending egoic, and Wanting, Need). And, In The Way Of The Heart, Such True Intimacy (and Also Right Sexual Communion, and Rightly Practiced sexual “Conscious Exercise”) Is Neither Possible Nor Truly Appropriate Outside The Context Of The Culture and Practice Of Truly self-Transcending Devotion To My Bodily (Human) Form, My Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence, and My Very (and Inherently Perfect) State, or Outside The Culture and Process Of Truly self-Transcending Devotional Identification Of The By Me Revealed Spiritual and, Ultimately, Transcendental Divine, or Outside The Total Devotional (and self-Transcending) Process Of Truly Right Submission To The By Me Revealed Spiritual and, Ultimately, Transcendental Divine. And The Practical Essence Of True Intimacy (and Right Sexual Communion, and Rightly Practiced sexual “Conscious Exercise”) Is Active Love and Real Trust.

If intimate partners Do Not Actively Love and Really Trust one another, Then they Will Fear Even To Say “I Love You” (For Such Is A Confession Of Vulnerability, and human beings Will Not Confess Vulnerability To any one they Regard As An Opponent, or any one who Might Use their Vulnerability To Threaten or Harm them With Rejection, Betrayal, and Acts Of Un-Love). Therefore, All My Devotees who Are intimate partners of one another Must Actively Love and Really, Steadily Trust one another In Vulnerable Intimacy. And Such intimately related Devotees Awaken To Love and Become Trustworthy (and Truly Intimate) Through Constant Devotional self-Submission and Service To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person).

Active Love, Steady Trust, and Vulnerable Intimacy Are Essential To True (and, In Due Course, Fullest, or Truly Spiritual) Heart-Practice. The Practical Realization and Incarnation Of These Qualities Is The Essence Of True Sila In The Practice Of True Intimacy. Therefore, In Order To Realize These Qualities, individuals who Practice True Intimacy (or Would Do So) In The Way Of The Heart Must Transcend The “Oedipal Mood” Of conventional sexuality. That Is To Say, emotional-sexual intimacy (and Even The Totality Of human Existence) Must (In The Way Of The Heart) Be Lifted Out Of The Whole Context Of Rejection, Betrayal, and Un-Love That Characterizes the ego In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life.

I Have Observed That human individuals In The First Three Stages Of Life Tend (Generally Unknowingly) To Relate (or React) To all persons (and Especially intimates) of the Opposite sex As they Did (or Do) To their own parent (or Otherwise Principal early-life relation) of the Opposite sex. I Have Also Observed That human individuals In The First Three Stages Of Life Tend (Generally Unknowingly) To Relate (or React) To their own physical body As they Do To persons (Especially intimates) of the Opposite sex and As they Did (or Do) To their own parent (or Otherwise Principle early-life relation) of the Opposite sex. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, The Process and Practice Of Listening and Hearing (or The Early Process and Practice Of self-Observation, self-Understanding, and self-Transcendence In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life, and The “Original” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life) Naturally and Inevitably Extends Itself Into The Process and Practice Whereby Habitual Reactive (or Negative, and Otherwise Mechanical) Patterns (or Attitudes and Behaviors Associated With all persons (and Especially the parent, and Also intimates) of the Opposite sex, and Also, Therefore, Habitual Reactive (or Negative and Otherwise Mechanical) Patterns (or Attitudes and Behaviors) Associated With The individual Practitioners own physical body, Are Overcome.

I Have Observed That human individuals In The First Three Stages O Life Tend (Generally Unknowingly) To Relate (or React) To all persons (and Especially intimates, and Presumed rivals) of the Same sex As they Did (or Do) To their own parent (or Otherwise Principal early-life relation) of the Same sex. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, The Process and Practice Of Listening and Hearing (or The Early Process and Practice Of self-Observation, self-Understanding, and self-Transcendence In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life, and The “Original” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life) Naturally and Inevitably Extends Itself Into The Process and Practice Whereby Habitual Reactive (or Negative, and Otherwise Mechanical) Patterns (or Attitudes and Behaviors) Associated With all persons (and Especially the parent, and Also intimates, and Presumed rivals) of the Same sex Are Overcome, and (This) Also Because Relations With all persons (and Especially the parent, and Also intimates, and Presumed rivals) of the Same sex Generally Tend To Be Associated With The Basic Struggle To Acquire A Powerful self-Image, An egoic Center Of Strength, or The egoic Ability To Compete (and, Thereby, To Survive, and Even To Dominate).

The egoic (or self-Contracted) individual Is (By Virtue Of his or her History, self-Idea, and Lack Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Realization) Chronically Bound To The Ritual Of Rejection. The emotional (or emotional-sexual) Career Of egoity Tends To Manifest As A Chronic Complaint That Always Says, By Countless Means, “You Do Not Love me.” This Abusive Complaint Is Itself The Means Whereby the egoic individual Constantly Enforces his or her Chronic Wanting Need To Reject, Avoid, or Fail To Love others. Indeed, This Complaint Is More Than A Complaint. It Is A self-Image (The Heart-Sick or self-Pitying and Precious Idea That “I” Is Rejected) and An Angry Act Of Retaliation (Whereby others Are Punished For Not Sufficiently Adoring, pleasurizing, and Immortalizing the Precious ego-“I”).

The egoic (or self-Contracted) individual Is Chronically and Reactively Contracted From all of its relations. Fear Is The Root Of this self-Contraction, and The Conceived Purpose Of this self-Contraction Is self-Preservation, Even self-Glorification. Indeed, Fear Is the self-Contraction. The self-Contraction, or the ego-“I”, Is The Root-Action or Primal Mood That Is Fear. Therefore, All Of The self-Preserving, self-Glorifying, and other-Punishing Efforts Of the ego-“I” (or the self-Contracted body-mind) Only Preserve, Glorify, and Intensify Fear Itself.

Fear, the ego-“I”, Un-Love, or The Total Ritual Of self-Contraction Must Be Understood and Transcended. All Of Fear, egoity, self-Contraction, or Un-Love Is Only Suffering. It Is Only Destructive. And It Is Entirely Un-Necessary.

Fear, egoity, self-Contraction, or Un-Love Is Chronically Expressed Through The Complex Ritual Of Rejection, or The Communication Of The Dominant Idea “You Do Not Love me”. Once This Is (In The Way Of The Heart) Truly, and Completely, and Most Fundamentally Understood, The Ritual Of Rejection, Fear, egoity, self-Contraction, or Un-Love Can Be Directly Transcended, If Only It Is Summarily Replaced By The Ordeal (or Discipline and Practice) Of self-Transcending Love, and (Then, By Grace) Heart-Communion With and (Ultimately) Heart-Communication Of The Divine Self-Condition, In The Form “I Love You”.

Therefore, In The Way and Manner Of The Heart, Understand Your Separate and Separative self (As Un-Love) and Transcend Your Separate and Separative self (By Love). And This Is Perfected (Progressively, In The Way and Manner Of The Heart) By Devotional (or self-Transcending and self-Forgetting) Heart-Surrender Of the conditional body-mind To My Bodily (Human) Form, and My Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence, and My Very (and Inherently Perfect) State, and, Thus and Thereby, To The Person and The Forms or Characteristics Of The Spiritual, and Transcendental, and Divine, Self.

If You Will Thus Be Love (By This Devotion), You Must Also Constantly Encounter, Understand, and Transcend The Rejection Rituals Of others who Are, Even If Temporarily or Only Apparently, Bereft Of Divine Wisdom. Therefore, If You Will Be Love (As My Devotee, and, Thus and Thereby, As A Devotee Of The Divine Person), You Must (In The Way and Manner Of The Heart) Always Skillfully Transcend The Tendency To Become Un-Love (and Thus To Become self-Bound, Apparently Divorced From Grace-Given Divine Communion) In Reaction To The Apparent Lovelessness Of others. And You Must Not Withdraw From Grace-Given Divine Communion (or Become Degraded By Un-Love) Even When Circumstances Within Your Intimate Sphere, or Within The Sphere Of Your Appropriate social Responsibility, Require You To Make Difficult Gestures To Counter and Control The Effects or Undermine and Discipline The Negative and Destructive Effectiveness Of The Rituals Of Un-Love That Are Performed By others.

For those who Are Committed To Love (and who Always Commune With The One Who Is Love), Even Rejection By others Is Received and Accepted As A Wound, Not An Insult. Even The Heart-Necessity To Love and To Be Loved Is A Wound. Even The Fullest Realization Of Love Is A Wound That Never Heals.

The egoic Ritual Calls every individual To Defend himself or herself Against The Wounds Of Love and The Wounding Signs Of Un-Love (or egoic self-Contraction) In the daily world. Therefore, Even In The Context Of True Intimacy, The Tendency (Apart From Spiritual Responsibility) Is To Act As If Every Wound (Which Is Simply A Hurt) Is An Insult (or A Reason To Punish).

The Reactive Rituals Of egoity Must Be Released By The self-Transcending (and Then Spiritual) Practice Of Love. This Requires Each and Every Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart To Observe, Understand, and Relinquish The emotionally Reactive Cycle Of Rejection and Punishment. And The Necessary Prerequisites For Such Relinquishment Are Vulnerability (or The Ability To Feel The Wounds Of Love Without Retaliation), Sensitivity To the other In Love (or The Ability To Sympathetically Observe, Understand, Forgive, Love, and Not Punish or Dissociate From the other In Love), and Love Itself (or The Ability To Love, To Know You Are Loved, To Receive Love, and To Know That Both You and the other, Regardless Of Any Appearance To The Contrary, Are Vulnerable To Love and Heart-Requiring Of Love).

It Is Not Necessary (or Even Possible) To Become Immune To The Feeling Of Being Rejected. To Become Thus Immune, You Would Have To Become Immune To Love Itself. What Is Necessary (and Also Possible) Is To Enter Fully Into The Spiritual Life-Sphere Of Love. In The Way Of The Heart, This Is Done By First Entering (By Heart) Into My Company (and, Thus and Thereby, Into The Company Of The Divine Person), and (Therein) To Submit To The Divine Embrace Of Love, Wherein Not Only Are You Loved, but You Are Love Itself. Then You Must Magnify That Love-Radiance In the world of human relationships.

If You Will Do This, Then You Must Do The Sadhana (or Concentrated Practice) Of Love. As A Practical Matter, You Must Stop Dramatizing The egoic Ritual Of Betrayal In Reaction To The Feeling Of Being Rejected. You Must Understand, Transcend, and Release The Tendency To Respond (or React) To Signs Of Rejection (or Signs That You Are Not Loved) As If You Are Insulted, Rather Than Wounded. That Is To Say, You Must Stop Punishing and Rejecting others When You Feel Rejected. If You Punish another When You Feel This, You Will Act As If You Are Immune To Loves Wound. Thus, You Will Pretend To Be Angrily Insulted, Rather Than Suffer To Be Wounded. In The Process, You Will Withdraw and Withhold Love. You Will Stand Off, Independent and Dissociated. You Will Only Reinforce The Feeling Of Being Rejected, and You Will Compound It By Actually Rejecting the other. In This Manner, You Will Become Un-Love. You Will Fail To Love. You Will Fail To Live In The Sphere Of Love. Your Own Acts Of Un-Love Will Degrade You, Delude You, and Separate You From Your Love-partner (or Your partners In Love) and From Love Itself. Therefore, those who Fail To Practice The Sadhana Of Love In their intimate emotional-sexual relationships, and In human relationships Generally, Will, By That Failure, Turn Away (or Contract) From God (or The Great Condition That Is Reality Itself).

Love Does Not Fail For You When You Are Rejected or Betrayed or Apparently Not Loved. Love Fails For You When You Reject, Betray, and Do Not Love. Therefore, If You Listen To Me, and Also If You Hear Me, and Also If You See Me, Do Not Stand Off From Relationship. Be Vulnerable. Be Wounded When Necessary, and Endure That Wound or Hurt. Do Not Punish the other In Love. Communicate To one another, Even Discipline one another, but Do Not Dissociate From one another or Fail To Grant one another The Knowledge Of Love. Realize That each one Wants To Love and To Be Loved By the other In Love. Therefore, Love. Do This Rather Than Make Any Effort To Get Rid Of The Feeling Of Being Rejected. To Feel Rejected Is To Feel The Hurt Of Not Being Loved. Allow That Hurt, but Do Not Let It Become The Feeling Of Lovelessness. Be Vulnerable and Thus Not Insulted. If You Are Merely Hurt, You Will Still Know The Necessity (or the Hearts Requirement) Of Love, and You Will Still Know The Necessity (or The Hearts Requirement) To Love.

The Habit Of Reacting To Apparent Rejection (By others) As If It Were An Insult Always Coincides With (and Only Reveals) The Habit Of Rejecting (or Not Loving) others. Any one whose Habitual Tendency Is To Reject and Not Love others In The Face Of their Apparent Acts Of Rejection and Un-Love Will Tend To Reject and Not Love others Even When they Are Only Loving. Narcissus, The Personification Of the ego, the self-Contraction, or The Complex Avoidance Of Relationship, Is Famous For his Rejection Of The Lady, Echo, who Only Loved him. Therefore, If You Listen To Me, and Also If You Hear Me, and Also If You See Me, Be Vulnerable In Love. If You Remain Vulnerable In Love, You Will Still Feel Loves Wound, but You Will Remain In Love. In This Manner, You Will Always Remain In The human (and Then Divine) Sphere Of Love.

Therefore, The Most Direct Way To Know Love In every moment Is To Be Love In every moment.

In The Way Of The Heart, My Devotee Is Founded In This Capability By Virtue Of his or her Constant Communion With Me (and, Thus and Thereby, With The Divine Person, Reality, or Truth). Therefore, If any Such a one Fails To Be Steady In This Communion With Divine Love-Bliss, Then he or she Will Become Weak In Love. And To Be Weak In Love (At Any Stage Of Life) Is To Be Always Already Independent, Insulted, Empty With Craving, In Search Of Love, Manipulative, Un-Happy, and Moved To Punish, Betray, and Destroy all relationships. Such a Weak one Always Already Feels Rejected and Is Never Satisfied. Indeed, such a one Is Not Even Found To Be Truly Lovable By others.

Those who Love Are Love, and others Inevitably Love them. Those who Only Seek For Love Are Not themselves Love, and So they Do Not Find It. (Even If they Are Loved, they Do Not Get The Knowledge Of It.) Only The Lover Is Lovable. Therefore, Every Heart Should Become As Love Is. And My Every Listening Devotee, My Every Hearing Devotee, and My Every Seeing Devotee Should Realize (and Demonstrate) This Principle In Love With Me, The One Who Is Love.

As A Further Sign Of True Sila, All Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (Beginning In The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart), and Even All Formally Approaching Would-Be Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (In The Student-Novice Stage), Should (and Are To Be Formally Expected To) Practice An Appropriate Sexual Economy.

Appropriate or Right Sexual Economy Involves The Release (Through self-Observation, and Eventual Most Fundamental self-Understanding) Of all Aberrating (or self-Binding) sexual inclinations and all sexual activities that Do Not Serve Basic human (and Then Truly Spiritual) Equanimity.

Right Sexual Economy Is (From The Beginning) To Be Embraced (and More and More Effectively Developed, To The Degree Of Simple human Responsibility) In The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart. (Indeed, Right Sexual Economy Is, In A Basic, and Non-Technical, Manner, To Be Embraced and Practiced Even In The Context Of The Student-Novice Stage, Of Listening-Active Approach To The Way Of The Heart.) And Right Sexual Economy Is To Be Further Developed and Maintained (In Detail, With A Progressively Greater Demonstration Of Basic human Equanimity) In The Context Of The First Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Context Of Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart), and Right Sexual Economy (Thus Developed) Is, Likewise, To Be Maintained (and Even Further Developed, As Necessary) Thereafter, Even At All Practicing Stages Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Practice Beyond Practicing Stage One Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage, and Then All The Actually and Truly Seeing Developmental Stages, Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart).

Right Sexual Economy Requires The General Avoidance (or Devotionally self-Surrendering and self-Forgetting Feeling-Relinquishment) Of private (or solitary) masturbation (Especially Chronic, or Habitual, and Compulsive, or Obsessive, private, or solitary, masturbation), and Right Sexual Economy Requires The General Avoidance (or Devotionally self-Surrendering and self-Forgetting Feeling-Relinquishment) Of any form of masturbation, or Even any form of sexual activity, that Indulges In and Exploits erotic mental imagery. This Discipline (or General Rule) Is A Necessary One, Because private (or solitary) masturbation (and any form of sexual activity that Indulges In and Exploits erotic mental imagery) Is Inherently Non-Relational (and, Especially If orgasm Is Thereby Sought or Otherwise Permitted, Generally degenerative), and, In General, masturbation (Outside The Circumstance Of Direct, and Directly Responsive, sexual contact with an intimate partner, and, Even In That Circumstance, Without Yogic Responsibility For All The Processes and Potential Effects Of masturbation) and, Even In Any sexual Context, The mental (and physical) Exploitation Of erotic mental imagery Tend To Reinforce The Independent and Separative, or Anti-Relational, Attitude.

In The Case Of Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (and Student-Novices, Formally Approaching The Way Of The Heart) who Are Not party to intimate emotional-sexual relationship, Right Sexual Economy Requires That celibacy Be Maintained (and, Once Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Becomes Established On The Basis Of True Seeing, Such Necessarily Becomes Fully Spiritually Oriented celibacy).

Therefore, In The Case Of intimately related Devotees, Formally Practicing The Way Of The Heart, Right Sexual Economy Becomes (With The Agreement Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Either Voluntary (and, Eventually, Spiritually Oriented) celibacy Or An Intentional (and Significant) Limitation On The Frequency Of sexual intercourse (Engaged As A sexual Form Of “Conscious Exercise”) Or (Once Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Is Fully Established On The Basis Of True Seeing) Adaptation To The Yoga Of Sexual Communion (Generally, or In Most Cases, Including A Discipline Relative To The Frequency Of Even Such Yogic Sexual Intercourse).

In Order That they Fulfill My Calling For them To Avoid Excessive (or Wastefully self-Indulgent) sexual activity, All Formally Acknowledged (and sexually active) Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (and Even All Student-Novices, Approaching The Way Of The Heart) Must (and Are To Be Formally Expected To) Limit The Frequency Of sexual activity To The Degree That Is (personally) Necessary To Avoid (and, By Means Of Devotional Surrender, To Relinquish) Excessive (or Wastefully self-Indulgent) sexual activity. In The Case Of All sexually active Student-Novices (Approaching The Way Of The Heart), The Frequency Of sexual activity Should, As In The Case Of All Formally Acknowledged (and sexually active) Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, Be Limited To The Degree That Is (personally) Necessary To Avoid the General (physically, emotionally, and mentally enervate, and otherwise degenerate) effects and signs of Excessive (or Wastefully self-Indulgent) sexual activity. Therefore, All sexually active Student-Novices (Approaching The Way Of The Heart) Should (and Are To Be Formally Expected To) Progressively Establish, and Then Consistently Maintain, The Same Discipline Relative To The Frequency Of sexual activity That Is Expected Of All Formally Acknowledged (and sexually active) Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart.

In The Case Of All Formally Acknowledged (and sexually active) Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, The Right and Intelligent (and To Be Formally Expected) Discipline Relative To The Frequency Of sexual activity Requires (As A General Rule) A Minimum Frequency Of once per month (In Order To Effectively Maintain sexual intimacy)-Although sexual activity May Be Engaged Even Less Frequently By those who (By Virtue Of their Actual Demonstration, and According To The Formal Cultural Observations Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Are Found To Be Truly (Either Characteristically Or Developmentally) Suited For A sexual Discipline That Is Closer To celibacy (and who, Although sexually Relatively inactive, Consistently Maintain a Fully Positive intimacy)-and, In The Case Of All Formally Acknowledged (and sexually active) Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, The Right and Intelligent (and To Be Formally Expected) Discipline Relative To The Frequency Of sexual activity Requires (As A General Rule) A Maximum Average Frequency Of once or twice per week.

In The Way Of The Heart, The Maximum Average (sexual activity) Frequency Of once or twice per week Is To Be Exceeded, Either Potentially Or In Fact, Only By Practitioners Of Sexual Communion who (By Virtue Of their Actual Demonstration, and According To The Formal Cultural Observations Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Are Found To Be Uniquely Qualified For A Yogic Sexual Sadhana, and By Practitioners Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” who (According To The Formal Cultural Observations Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Consistently Demonstrate Clear and Very Significant Indications That Will, In Due Course, Make them Uniquely Qualified For A Yogic Sexual Sadhana. Therefore, The Maximum Average (sexual activity) Frequency Of once or twice per week May (At Least Potentially) Be Exceeded (Either Regularly Or As A Pattern During Occasional Extended Periods) In The Case Of Some (but Not Necessarily All) Practitioners Of Sexual Communion who Are Uniquely Qualified For A Yogic Sexual Sadhana (By Virtue Of their Exceptional sexual Strength, The Consistent Effectiveness Of their Right Conservative and Regenerative sexual Discipline, their Characteristic Freedom From The Tendency To Collapse From The Feeling-Contemplative, and, Progressively, Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine, Orientation In The Midst Of a sexually active life, their Characteristic Adherence To The Strictly Yogic and self-Surrendering and God-Realizing Attitude In The Midst Of a sexually active life, their Characteristic Freedom From the idealistic attitude, the romantic attitude, the puritanical attitude, and any and every other merely conventional, or limiting and ego-Reinforcing, attitude In The Midst Of a sexually active life, their Uncommon Demonstration Of self-Discipline, self-Observation, self-Understanding, and Effective self-Transcendence Relative To All Aspects Of their emotional-sexual character and Practice, and, Altogether, their General Maturity As Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart). And, Otherwise, The Maximum Average (sexual activity) Frequency Of once or twice per week May (At Least Potentially) Be Exceeded (Either Regularly Or As A Pattern During Occasional Extended Periods) Only In The Case Of Some (but Not Necessarily All) Practitioners Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” who Are, Both In their sexual activity and In their Total Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, Consistently and Clearly Demonstrating Characteristics (Equalling, or At Least Very Significantly Approaching, Those I Have Described In Reference To Practitioners Of Sexual Communion who Are Uniquely Qualified For A Yogic Sexual Sadhana) That Would, and Will, In Due Course, Make them Uniquely Qualified For A Yogic Sexual Sadhana (By Virtue Of The Then Full Indications I Have Described In Reference To Practitioners Of Sexual Communion who Are Uniquely Qualified For A Yogic Sexual Sadhana).

In The Way Of The Heart, each and every aspect and detail of Each and Every Practitioners emotional-sexual character, tendencies, limitations, and activities (As Well As each and every aspect and detail of each and every other kind or dimension of Each and Every Practitioners character, tendencies, limitations, and activities) Must (In The Context Of Formal Groups, Interviews, Questionnaires, and Reports) Always Be Openly and Fully Disclosed (or confessed), and, Thus and Thereby, Formally (Culturally) Observed and “Considered”, Within The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart. And, On That Basis, Each and Every Aspect and Detail Of each and every individuals Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The emotional-sexual Context Must (Like Each and Every Aspect and Detail Of each and every individuals Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In Each and Every Other Context) Be Formally Approved By The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart.

In Particular, The Frequency Of sexual activity Should, In The Way Of The Heart, Always Be (Formally and Actually) Determined On The Basis Of A “Consideration” Of the age, degree of vitality, and general emotional-sexual characteristics of the individuals Involved, As Well As A Realistic Estimate Of The Perceived Effect Of sexual activity, and sexual inactivity As Well, On their Current and General State (and daily Practice) Of Devotion, Service, self-Discipline, Feeling-Contemplation, and Depth Of Meditation (and, Altogether and Ultimately, On The Total Quality Of their, Progressively, Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Practice). And The Same Patterns and Disciplines That Characterize The sexual (and intimate emotional-sexual) Practice Of My Any Formally Acknowledged Devotee During The Advancing Stages Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, Through The Sixth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, Will, Because They Are Thus and So Established, Also Tend (Naturally and Freely) To Continue When My Devotee Enters (and Proceeds To Demonstrate) The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart. (Therefore, If, In The Context Of The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, My Devotee Chooses To Be sexually active, he or she Is, In The Context Of The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, To Engage his or her sexual activity Only In The Conservative, Yogic Manner Of Sexual Communion and True Intimacy, For Conservative Discipline, Even Of Every Kind, Has No Inherent Reason or Cause For It To Be Discontinued, or, Otherwise, Not To Be Practiced, When My Devotee Has Realized, and Is Demonstrating, The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart.)

The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart Is Not Itself Characterized, or limited and Defined, By any kind of conventional, or Otherwise Obligatory and Predictable, behavioral designs. However, If sexual activity Continues In The Context Of The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, The Apparent Intention Behind sexual activity Will, At Least Eventually, and Simply By Virtue Of The Power Of Self-Abiding Divine Recognition, or, Ultimately, By Virtue Of The Ever-Increasing Disposition Of Divine Indifference, Tend (In All Cases) To Decrease, and The Pattern Of sexual activity Will, By Virtue Of That Spontaneously Ever Decreasing Intention, Tend (In The General Case) To Become Progressively Ever More Conservative In its Frequency. In Any and Every Case, sexual activity Will Certainly Not, At any time In The Course Of The Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, Be Either Generated Or Maintained On The Basis Of egoic Seeking and egoic Non-Recognition Of Apparent bodily Existence. Indeed, In The Course Of The Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, A Spontaneous and Free, or Non-Strategic, Choice Of celibacy , or, Really, A Spontaneous and Total Forgetting Of The Intention Toward sexual activity, Will, In All Cases, Certainly Occur, Whether Sooner Or Later, and Especially, and Inevitably, As The Characteristic Of Inherently “Bright”, or Always Already Love-Blissful, Divine Indifference Shines Most Profoundly Toward Immediate Divine Translation.

Even Any or All intimately related Practitioners (Of Any Form Of Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, and At Any Developmental Stage Of Practice, From The Beginning, Of The Way Of The Heart) May (With The Formal Consent Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Observe Significant Periods Of Intentional celibacy For Various Reasons (such as pregnancy, the early period of mothering an infant, or As A Reasonable Fast From sexual activity In Order To Rebalance the body-mind and Purify the emotional being). And, Of Course, intimately related Practitioners (At Any Developmental Stage Of Practice) Of The Way Of The Heart May (With The Formal Consent Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Choose To Simplify their Practice (or their ordinary lives) By Agreeing To Observe A Permanent Discipline Of celibacy (and Even To Renounce the entire social and practical circumstance of their emotional-sexual relationship).

The Way Of The Heart Is, Truly (In Its Right Practice), Most Simple. Therefore, Chronic life-Complication and The Seekers Struggle Are Not Necessary In (or Otherwise Characteristic Of) The Way Of The Heart. Chronic life-Complication and The Seekers Struggle Are, In The Way Of The Heart, The Inevitable Results Of living Without True or Fullest (and Truly Fully Devotional, and Really Feeling-Contemplative) Resort and Submission To Me, and Without True or Fullest “Consideration” and Most Serious Acceptance Of My Heart-Revealing Word, and Without True or Fullest (and Fully Responsible) Practice Of The Way Of The Heart (Strictly, or Only, In The Context Of The Practitioners Real, or Actual, Present Stage Of Life, and In Strict Accordance With My Always Exact and Complete Instructions Relative To Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Context Of The Practitioners Real, or Actual, Present Stage Of Life). Also, Chronic life-Complication and The Seekers Struggle Are (In General, and In The Specific Context Of The Practice Of The Way Of The Heart) The Natural (and Inevitable) Results Of The Effort To Achieve self-Fulfillment (or self-Expression) Via the conventions of ordinary living. Therefore, Even Though It Is Possible (and Sometimes Necessary) To Practice The Way Of The Heart While Maintaining the basic conventions (and Even Much Of The Complexity) of ordinary living, True and Fullest and Altogether Effective Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Requires That Such Be Done On The Firm Basis Of A Right (or Truly self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, self-Purifying, and self-Transcending) Attitude, and On The Firm Basis Of A Right (or Really self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, self-Purifying, and More and More Effectively and Profoundly self-Transcending) Practice Relative To every detail of ordinary living. And, In The Way Of The Heart, Such Right Attitude and Right Practice Depend (Progressively) Upon (and Must Progressively Express) Right Listening, True Hearing, and Real Seeing, Which Are The Practicing Means Whereby The Heart Is Released (By Grace) From egoic Complication and egoic Struggle.

My sexually active Devotee Can (Potentially) Practice The Way Of The Heart Truly and Effectively, If his or her Heart-Submission To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person and Condition) Is Real and Strong, but The Process (To The Degree Of The Inherent Perfection That Is The Realization Associated With The Seventh Stage Of Life) May Nonetheless (Because Of The Continuation Of sexual activity, and The Many Other functional, practical, and relational Details Of ordinary living) Tend To Develop Relatively Slowly. Only The Truly (and, In Due Course, Spiritually) “Heroic”, or Fully self-Transcending and world-Transcending, Devotee Can Be sexually active (Even In The Context Of True Intimacy and Sexual Communion) and Also Proceed Most Directly (or With Relative Quickness) Through All The (Necessary) Developmental Stages (or Advanced and Ultimate Processes) Of The Way Of The Heart. Therefore, I Offer My Every Formally Acknowledged Seeing Devotee A Perhaps Quickening (or At Least Simpler and, Therefore, Perhaps More Direct) Alternative To The Discipline Of True Intimacy (and To Both Sexual Communion In True Intimacy and celibacy In True Intimacy). It Is The (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Discipline.

In Comparison To The Discipline Of True Intimacy (With All Of Its Potential functional, practical, and relational Requirements), The (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Discipline In The Way Of The Heart Is A functionally, practically, and relationally Simpler (Although Equally Demanding) Practice. It Involves Free, Complete, and, Generally, Permanent Relinquishment Of the intimate emotional-sexual situation. Therefore, and Thereby, Such (Formal) Celibate Renunciation Involves Free, Complete, and, Generally, Permanent Relinquishment Of The Disciplines Of Both True Intimacy and Sexual Communion.

Such (Formal) Celibate Renunciation Involves Not Only celibacy, but The Free Relinquishment Of All sexual and social Seeking, and Freedom From all familial obligations to provide for others. Therefore, Apart From My Call To Always Serve Me (Even In all relations, and In all circumstances), Formal Celibate Renunciation In The Way Of The Heart Involves Free Relinquishment Of all the social, familial, and household obligations that are (or may be) associated with emotional-sexual intimacy.

In General, Any Devotee who Is Not party to intimate emotional-sexual relationship, and who Is Established At Practicing Stage Three, or Beyond, In The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, who Is Formally Acknowledged To Be Practicing The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart On The Basis Of Truly Both Hearing and Seeing, and At Any Developmental Stage Of Such Truly Hearing and Actually Seeing Practice), May (With The Formal Consent Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Freely Choose This (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Discipline (Just As Any Devotee, Practicing Any Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and Practicing At Even Any Developmental Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, May, With The Formal Consent Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, Freely, and Informally, Practice celibacy itself, Whether Inside Or Outside The Context Of intimate relationship). Indeed, In The Way Of The Heart Even Any (Formally Acknowledged) Seeing Devotee who Is party to intimate emotional-sexual relationship May, With The Formal Consent Of The Formal, Cooperative Community Gathering Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, and After “Consideration” With his or her intimate partner (or partners), Choose This (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Discipline (Although, If There Are children, This Choice May Not Be Appropriate or Possible).

If My Any (Formally Acknowledged) Seeing Devotee Is Free, Willing, and Able To Choose Such A practical Course, Then The Other Conditions For (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Practice Are Simply A Matter Of self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Devotion, Service, and self-Discipline. In fact, Such Are The Three Primary Aspects Of The Simple Discipline For All Practitioners In The Way of The Heart: Constant Devotion To Me, Constant Devotional Service To Me, and Constant Discipline Of the conditional (or psycho-physical) self (In Constant Devotional Response To Me), and All Done In The self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Manner. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, The Discipline Of The (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Is To Simplify The Requirements For Maintenance Of the bodily person and To Remain Constantly In The self-Disciplined Practice Of self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Devotion and Devotional Service To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person and Self-Condition).

Sexual activity itself (Including masturbation) Should (Optimally, or As A General Rule) Be Intelligently Avoided (or Feelingly Relinquished, but Not Merely Aggressively Suppressed) Until The Passage To (At Least) physical maturity In The Context Of The Third Stage Of Life Has Completed Itself. That Is To Say, Until the human individual Has Achieved Optimum physical maturity (Which Achievement Is, In General, Marked By The Attainment Of At Least twenty-one years of age, and, Thus, By The Fullest Completion Of The Third Of The First Three Cycles Of seven years Of Natural, and General psycho-physical, Growth), the mind, the emotional being, the bodily energies, and the hormonal or chemical and other physical processes of the body Should (By Right self-Discipline, Including A Positively Intended Avoidance Of genital sexual activity) Simply Be Allowed To Serve The Natural and humanizing Growth Processes Of The First Three Stages Of Life. (And, In The Way Of The Heart, genital sexual activity Should, Optimally, and Based On Intelligent and Compassionate Right Guidance, Be Avoided, or Voluntarily Relinquished, Until All Aspects Of adult Responsibility For At Least Basic, or Truly Prepared, Student-Beginner Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Are Entirely and Stably Established.)

Premature sexual activity, or An Untimely Concern About sex, or An adolescent Fascination With sexual Possibilities Only Complicates The Natural Growth Processes and Reinforces The egoic Tendency. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, children and young people Should (By Means Of Consistent Right Guidance) Be Taught To Understand The Processes Of their own Stages Of Life. They Should Be Progressively Instructed In A Right or Wisdom-Based Understanding Of human sexuality. They Should Be Led (Sympathetically) To Truly Understand (and To Practice Right Disciplines Relative To) their own Natural signs. And they Should Be Inspired and Helped and Rightly Obliged To (Really and Consistently) Practice The Original (or Beginners) self-Transcending Devotional Means Of Surrender (Through Informed and Intelligently and Feelingly Guided Obedience, or Sympathetic and True Conformity) To Me (The Realizer, The Revealer, and The Revelation Of The Divine Person and Self-Condition). With Such Right Guidance (Within The Formally Acknowledged Cooperative Community Culture Of All Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart), adolescence itself Should (and, Rightly and Optimally, Must) Be Bypassed (Along With All Excursions Into mere self-Indulgence, and All Excursions Into Secular, or Non-Sacred, and “Civilized” worldliness, and All Excursions Into Any or All Developmentally Unproductive and Karmically Devastating Experiments With conditional and egoic Possibilities). Otherwise, The Third Stage Of Life (If It Is Devoted To adolescent Imitation Of equally adolescent adult behavior) Tends To Become An End In Itself (or The Final Model Of human Development), Rather Than A Bridge To (or Even A Process Within) The Fourth Stage Of Life (and Beyond).

Unfortunately, many adult individuals May Not Become Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Until After they Have Entered Into sexual experimentation, sexually based emotional attachments, and intimate agreements, Such As these Tend To Be Done In the humanly and Spiritually Un-Developed domains of the common world. In The Case Of such individuals, The Disciplines Assumed and Developed In The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart (and Significantly Begun Even In The Student-Novice Stage, Of Approach To The Way Of The Heart), and Which Are (and Must Be) Continued (and Further Refined) In The First and Second Practicing Stages Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Context Of Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practice, and Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Practice, Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart), Will (and Do) Serve To Purify them Of their Previous childish and adolescent Purposes and egoic Habit-Patterns In sex and intimate relationships.

All Student-Beginners, Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, and Practitioners At Practicing Stage One Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (and Also All Student-Novices, Approaching The Way Of The Heart) Are Called To Intentionally Confine sexual intercourse, emotional-sexual responsiveness, and every kind of emotional-sexual activity (in thought, speech, and bodily deed) To The Circumstance Of emotionally intimate relationship, While they Otherwise Simply Observe (and Progressively Understand) themselves In The emotional-sexual Context.

All Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart who Are emotionally and sexually intimate With one another (or Even With Non-Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) During The Student-Beginner Stage, or As Beginning Listening, and Then Hearing) “Lay Congregationists”, or, Otherwise, During The First Two Periods Of Practicing Stage One Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Course Of The Way Of The Heart, and, Likewise, Also All sexually active Student-Novices (Approaching The Way Of The Heart), Should Conserve The Frequency Of sexual intercourse, and (Once they Become Formally Acknowledged Student-Beginners In The Way Of The Heart) they Should (While Also Continuing To Develop personally Appropriate Conservation Of The Frequency Of sexual intercourse) Avoid (or Devotionally Surrender, and, Thereby, Voluntarily Relinquish) Excessive (or even all) male (ejaculatory) orgasm and Excessive (or even all) female (degenerative) orgasm (In The Manner Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, As I Have Described and Given It For Application By Student-Beginners Of The Way Of The Heart, and By Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, and By Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, “Lay Congregationists”, and By Practitioners At Practicing Stages One and Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart).

All those who Have Awakened To The Degree Of True Hearing (or Most Fundamental self-Understanding) During The First Two Intensive Periods Of Practicing Stage One Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (and who Thus Become Established In The Third, and Final, or Hearing-Demonstrating, Intensive Period Of Practicing Stage One Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart), or who, Otherwise, Awaken To The Degree Of True Hearing (or Most Fundamental Understanding) While Practicing In The First Two Intensive Periods Of The “Lay Congregationist” Listening-Hearing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart (and who Thus Become Established In The Third, and Final, or Hearing-Demonstrating, Intensive Period Of The Listening-Hearing Stage Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart), Are Called (but On The Basis Of Most Fundamental self-Understanding, Already Established) To Continue (and Even To Intensify, or Most Easily Fulfill) The Discipline Of Controlling (or Directly Transcending) Inappropriate (or emotionally non-intimate) emotional-sexual activity (in thought, speech, and bodily deed), and Of Controlling Even All egoic (or self-Contracted) Uses Of sexuality (in thought, speech, and bodily deed). Therefore, they Are Called To Confine emotional-sexual activity To The Circumstance Of emotionally intimate relationship, and they Are Also Called To Continue To Conserve The Frequency Of sexual intercourse (and, In The Manner Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”, To Control male ejaculatory orgasm, and female degenerative orgasm).

Likewise, and Also For The Sake Of their Concentration In The Process Of Spirit-Baptism and Real Seeing, All These emotional-sexual Disciplines, Including The Discipline Of (Very Significantly) Conserving The Frequency Of sexual intercourse (and The Discipline Of Controlling male ejaculatory orgasm and female degenerative orgasm Through sexual “Conscious Exercise”), Are Necessary Practices (As I Have Described Them) For those who Are Already Involved (and sexually active) In emotional-sexual relationships At Practicing Stage Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Context Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart).

All The Various By Me Given Gifts and Callings and Disciplines (Which Are To Be Embraced and Basically Developed At The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, and Which Are To Be Significantly Begun Even At The Student-Novice Stage, Of Approach To The Way Of The Heart, and Which, As A Comprehensive and Detailed Obligation, Must Continue, and Continue To Develop, At Practicing Stages One and Two Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, or, Otherwise, In The Context Of Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practice, and Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, “Lay Congregationist” Practice, Of The Way Of The Heart) Serve self-Understanding and self-Transcendence, Including The Right Development Of emotional-sexual activity itself, and They Also Allow (or Positively Call Upon) both sexually active and sexually inactive individuals To “Consider” The Option Of (Formal) Celibate Renunciation.

Therefore, those who, By These Means, Eventually Choose The Discipline Of (Formal) Celibate Renunciation In The Way Of The Heart Should (or May) Take Up That Discipline (As A Full Commitment) At The Beginning Of The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, Once Practice Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is Formally Acknowledged To Be Based On Truly Both Hearing and Seeing), and (Thus) Immediately After The Full Testing Of themselves In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, and, Eventually, Fully Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart. (However, The Formal Celibate Renunciate Discipline May Also, By Further self-Testing, Be Chosen At any time After The Beginning Of The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, or, Otherwise, At any time After The Practice Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is Formally Acknowledged To Be Based On Truly Both Hearing and Seeing.)

In The Way Of The Heart, Formal Celibate Renunciates Should Not Presume That Formal Celibate Renunciation Somehow Requires them To live and Practice Apart From The General (Formal and Cooperative) Community Of all individuals Practicing The Way Of The Heart, or To live As If Formal Celibate Renunciates (or Even celibates In General) Exist Inherently Independent Of (or Must Otherwise Seem To Exist Independent Of) the physical world, The social Context Of Mankind, and The Devotional Culture Associated With My Transmission Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Grace. Therefore, Formal Celibate Renunciates Should, Like All Other Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, Practice In Cooperative (and Formal Community) Association (or At Least In Significantly Participatory Cooperative, and Formal Community, Affiliation) With Other Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (Many Of whom May Be Either sexually active Or sexually inactive Practitioners Of True Intimacy, Either With Or Without familial and household responsibilities). And Formal Celibate Renunciates In The Way Of The Heart Should (Like All Other adult Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Provide For their own practical requirements (or necessities) Through their Active Service (Which Should Itself Be A Practice Of Divine Communion), Perhaps By Serving Within The Practicing (Formal) Community Itself, or Perhaps By Earning an income Through work in the common world.

In The Way Of The Heart, Formal Celibate Renunciates Should, Typically, Share daily living quarters and daily sleeping quarters With Other Such Formal Celibate Renunciates (who are members only of their same sex), Although a private room (or a private dwelling place) May Be Appropriate (Either Occasionally Or Continually) In Cases (or At times) Of Unique Developmental Demonstration (and The Capability For Making A Uniquely Effective Use Of Solitude), and, In Any Case, Formal Celibate Renunciates Should (If Possible) live, As A General daily Rule, In (Immediate) Common With Other Such Formal Celibate Renunciates who are members only of their same sex. (Indeed, Apart From Specifically and Appropriately Chosen Occasions Of personal, and, Perhaps, sexual, intimacy, Engaged In one or another place Chosen, and Perhaps Even Reserved, For that Special purpose, Even My Devotees who Are Involved In intimate emotional-sexual relationship Should, Optimally, If their physical and personal circumstances Permit, or, In Some Cases, As their Formal Practice Obligations May Require, and For The Sake Of individually Maintaining Necessary physical and psychic Integrity, and One-Pointed Devotion To Me, Maintain separate sleeping quarters, or At Least separate beds. And, Likewise, Within The Context Of Cooperative Community, Even All My Devotees Should, Optimally, If their physical and personal circumstances Permit, or, In Some Cases, As their Formal Practice Obligations May Require, and, Altogether, For The Sake Of Maintaining One-Pointed Devotion To Me, Share daily sleeping quarters With Other Devotees who are members only of their same sex-While, Of Course, Otherwise Allowing For Appropriately Arranged Occasions, and Appropriately Arranged Alternative places, For Contact Between emotional-sexual intimates. And, Perhaps Generally and Regularly, but At Least Occasionally and For More or Less Extended periods, As, For Instance, When Engaged In Meditative Retreat, Even All My Devotees Should Share both daily living quarters and daily sleeping quarters, and A Devotional Culture Of daily life, With Other Devotees who are members only of their same sex-Although, Especially During Periods Of Meditative Retreat, a private room, or a private dwelling place, May Be Appropriate, In Cases, or At times, Of Unique Developmental Demonstration and The Capability For Making Uniquely Effective Use Of Solitude.)

In The Way Of The Heart, The daily hours Of Service Should, As A General Rule, Occupy Formal Celibate Renunciates For No More Than (or, In Unique Cases, Perhaps Significantly Less Than) six to eight hours per Average day, Unless they Are Called Upon To Practice A More Expanded Discipline Of Service As Part Of their Devotional Life. And, Apart From the daily hours Of Service, Formal Celibate Renunciates Are, In The Way Of The Heart, Free To Devote themselves (and Should Intensively Devote themselves) To The Formal Practice Of Communion With Me (In Formal Meditation, and In Formal Devotional, Sacramental, Educational, and Other Cultural Occasions).

In The Way Of The Heart, The (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Form Of Practice May Be Appropriate In The Case Of any one whose Qualifications For True Intimacy and A Yogic Sexual Sadhana Are ordinary (Rather Than “Heroic”, or Extraordinary and Unique). Clearly, The (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Discipline Is Generally (or May Very Likely Be Found To Be) Appropriate In The Case Of any one who Is Naturally and Unproblematically Disinclined Toward emotional-sexual intimacy and activity.

In The Way Of The Heart, emotional-sexual intimacy and emotional-sexual activity Are, Perhaps, Appropriate (and Become A Real and Right Capability) In The Case Of individuals who Are Either (and Truly Responsibly) More “Heroic” Or Else, In A more ordinary Manner, Truly Responsible For the emotional-sexual aspects of their personal and social character.

In The Way Of The Heart, emotional-sexual Un-Happiness Does Not Indicate A “Talent” (or A Rightly Practicing Capability) For Either Formal Celibate Renunciation Or Informal Intentional celibacy. Rather, In The Way Of The Heart, emotional-sexual Un-Happiness Must (Necessarily) Be Transcended (If The Advanced, and Then The Ultimate, Course Of The Way Of The Heart Is To Be Truly Entered and Truly Fulfilled). Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, There Must Necessarily Be Right Listening, True Hearing, Real Seeing, and Truly Effective Practicing In The Context Of the emotional-sexual character Before Formal Celibate Renunciation Can Be (Rightly and Formally) Chosen (If, In Fact, It Should Be Chosen), and Before Any Permanent (or More or Less Permanent) Intention To Practice celibacy itself Can Be (Rightly and Informally) Chosen (If In Fact It Should Be Chosen).

Because The Ordeal Of Practice Associated, From The Beginning, With Every Form (and Possible Developmental Stage) Of Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In Fact Works To Release emotional-sexual Un-Happiness, It Is Likely That Most Devotees In The Way Of The Heart Will In Fact Choose and Be (Progressively) Qualified (At Least In The Basic or more ordinary Sense) For Right (and Yogically Responsible) emotional-sexual intimacy (and For The Progressively Developing, and, Eventually, Spiritually Based, Discipline Of True Intimacy). In That Case, intimate Practice Will Not Be Burdened With Complicated emotional-sexual (or Otherwise ego-Based) Struggle, and The True Sila and Truly human Yoga Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” and (Eventual) Sexual Communion, or, In Some Cases, celibacy In (Progressive) True Intimacy, Will Also Develop Readily and Naturally.

In The Way Of The Heart, The (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Discipline Is Not A Matter Of Motivated (or Strategic) celibacy. Motivated (or Strategic, and, Necessarily, Problem-Based) celibacy Is Goal-Oriented. True (or Non-Problematic, Non-Strategic, and, Generally, Permanent) celibacy Is Motiveless (or Non-Seeking) celibacy. That Is To Say, True celibacy Is Simply A Matter Of Intelligent Self-Awareness and Motiveless Relinquishment Of sexual activity.

In The Way Of The Heart, celibacy Is Not a “Preferred” (or Otherwise “Idealized”) state, To Be Strategically Chosen and Enforced. A Strategically Chosen and Enforced celibacy is a merely physical (bodily) practice, Generated and Maintained By a mental (and, Necessarily, egoic) effort. Likewise, a Strategically Chosen and Enforced celibacy Is Always Based On A Presumed Problem (or A Root-Conflict, and The Attitude Of Seeking). Therefore, a Strategically Chosen and Enforced celibacy Always Involves, and Directly Dramatizes, A Struggle With sexual desires (and With The egoic Habit Of Identification With the physical body itself, and in and of itself). Unlike such Strategically Chosen and Enforced celibacy, True celibacy Develops From The Hearts Own Deep, Prior To both mind and body. True celibacy (or Even Any Profound Realization and Demonstration Of True emotional-sexual Equanimity) Is a kind of Ultimate (or Deeply Fundamental) kriya (or Spontaneous Purification Of the body-mind, and Of attention itself). True celibacy, Like Truly Conservative and Regenerative sexual Yoga, Evolves From The Grace-Given Discovery Of Prior Love-Bliss (Prior To the Relatively Superficial, and Always Love-Bliss- Seeking , efforts of “outward-directed”, or Merely object-Seeking, attention). Therefore, True celibacy (or Even Any Other Form Of True emotional-sexual Equanimity) Cannot Be Fully Practiced (or Truly Demonstrated) Until The Deep Well Of The Hearts Own Love-Bliss (Prior To any and all Presently or Potentially Acquired pleasure, or any and all Temporary and Merely Apparent blissfulness) Is, At Least To A Significant Depth, Truly and Continuously “Located” (By Means Of Grace, and Via The self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Practice Of Devotion To The Source, and To The Revealed and Revealing Person, Of Grace).

Some Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart May Be Naturally and Instinctively (or Otherwise Characteristically) Inclined Toward True and Motiveless celibacy, and So they May (Perhaps) Never Engage In sexual activity At any time in their lives. Other Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart May Realize True (or Truly Motiveless) celibacy In The Midst Of The Progressively Developing Process Of self-Understanding, and So Become celibate Only After they Have Transcended The Complications That Are Rooted In their emotional-sexual character. And Yet Other Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart May, After some time Of Practice Of True Intimacy, and (If they are sexually active) sexual “Conscious Exercise” and (Eventual) Sexual Communion, Become Relatively Indifferent To sex and Spontaneously Inclined Toward A Motivelessly celibate Practice (Either Inside Or Outside The Context Of True Intimacy).

Sexual activity Should Not Be Regarded As an independent experience. Since it Is To Be Practiced In Relationship, it Is Necessarily To Be Associated With Love (and, In The Way Of The Heart, With The Progressive Discipline Of True Intimacy). And sexual activity Also Tends To Be (and May Become) Associated With familial responsibilities (Although Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Are Called To Devote Even intimate emotional-sexual relationships To The Purpose Of God-Realization, Rather Than Merely or Only To worldly or family Fulfillments, and, Thus, In General, Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Are Called To Avoid reproductive conception and the birthing of children, Unless or Until each partner in the relationship Enjoys The Full functional, practical, relational, and Cultural Capability For, and The Total Quality Of their Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Truly Allows and Even Recommends, the birthing and Right “Upbringing” Of a child, or Even more than one child). Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, Formal Celibate Renunciation Is Not Merely A Decision To Avoid sex, but It Is A Decision To Devote oneself To God-Communion Without any of the social, familial, and intimate relational obligations that Necessarily are (or otherwise may be) associated with emotional-sexual intimacy.

Motiveless celibacy Is Part Of A Larger Decision To Devote oneself To Spiritual and, Ultimately, Transcendental, and Divine, Self-Realization, and It Does Not Carry Any Concept That celibacy itself Somehow “Earns” Such Realization or In itself Equips one Better To Realize God, Reality, or Truth. In The Way Of The Heart, Whether In The Case Of The Formal Celibate Renunciate Or In The Case Of The Informally celibate Practitioner who Practices Apart From intimate relationship (of the emotional-sexual kind) Or In The Case Of The celibate Practitioner Of (Progressive, or Else Fully Established) True Intimacy Or In The Case Of The sexually active Practitioner Of (Progressive, or Else Fully Established) True Intimacy and Of Sexual Communion (or, At First, Of sexual “Conscious Exercise”), Each and All Are, Potentially (As Real and True Practitioners Of The Total Way Of The Heart), Equally Attuned To The Yogic Design Associated With Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Realization. It Is Simply That Some May Do Well To Especially (or To A Uniquely Significant Degree) Simplify their life-obligations, In Order To Grant Sufficient energy and attention To The Progressively Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Process.

In The Way Of The Heart, The (Formal) Celibate Renunciate Discipline Is A Special Discipline That May Be Appropriate In The Case Of Some Fully Established (and Formally Acknowledged) Seeing Devotees. However, Renunciation Itself, Rightly Understood and Rightly Practiced, In Fact Characterizes (or Must Progressively Characterize) The Real Practice Of All Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, Whether they Are Beginners In The Free Intentional Relinquishment Of self-Indulgent and Casual emotional-sexual behavior, Or Growing Practitioners Of True Intimacy and sexual “Conscious Exercise”, Or Spiritually Active Practitioners Of True Intimacy and Sexual Communion, Or celibate Practitioners Of (Progressive, or Else Fully Established) True Intimacy, Or Formal Celibate Renunciates, Or Informally celibate Practitioners (who Choose To Practice Outside The Context Of emotional-sexual relationship), Or Even children, and those, young or old, who Are For Various Reasons (Other Than The Specific Choice Of Either Formal Celibate Renunciation Or Informal celibate Practice) Not party to intimate emotional-sexual relationship.

That True Renunciation Which More and More Characterizes (or Must Characterize) The Practice Of All Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Is self-Renunciation, The Devotional (or Heart-Responsive, and Inherently Motiveless) Renunciation Of the ego-“I” (or self-Contraction). Indeed, The Essential Ordeal Of The Way Of The Heart Is The Progressive Process Of self-Renunciation, or The Counter-egoic (or self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending) Resort To (Inherently egoless, and By Grace Revealed) Happiness Itself.

In The Way Of The Heart, self-Renunciation Becomes (or Must Become) True (and, Ultimately, Inherently Perfect) Devotion. Therefore, Even In The Context Of all conditional relations, My Every Listening Devotee, and My Every Hearing Devotee, and My Every Seeing Devotee Is Called To Always “Locate” Me (By Grace) and (Thus and Thereby) To Live Free In Love With The Self-Existing, Self-Radiant, and Inherently Free Divine Person or Reality. For My True Devotee, all objects and others Are Simply The Theatre Of Divine Association and self-Transcendence. Therefore, For My Every Devotee, all conditions Must Be Aligned and Yielded In Love With Me (and, Thus and Thereby, In Remembrance Of The Divine Person and Self-Condition), or Else any object or any other Will Be The Cause Of Heart-Stress, self-Contraction, Dissociation, Clinging, Boredom, Doubt, The Progressive Discomfort Of Diminished Love-Bliss, and All The Forgetfulness Of Grace and Truth and Happiness Itself.

In Any Case, and Even In The Case Of those Of My Devotees For whom celibacy (or Perhaps Formal Celibate Renunciation) Is Found To Be A Naturally Appropriate or Inevitable Discipline, or An Otherwise Reasonable Discipline, The Guiding Orientation Of The Way Of The Heart Is Not To Problem-Based self-Control, Strategic Separation Of attention From the world of relations, or A conceptually Idealized Commitment To The Avoidance Of sex. Rather, The Guiding Orientation Of The Way Of The Heart Is Always To self-Transcendence, By Grace, In Responsively self-Surrendering and self-Forgetting Relationship To Me, and Through The Heart-Magnification Of The Devotional Love Of Me (Even In and Via all functions, relations, and circumstances), and, In Due Course (As Grace Will Have It), Through The Spiritual Heart-Infusion Of the body-mind and all its relations (Via The Magnification and The Conductivity Of The By Me Revealed Spirit-Power Of Love-Bliss), and Through True Ecstasy (In The Context Of Meditation, and In daily life), Even, By Grace, To The Degree Of Inherently Perfect, and Inherently Spiritual, Transcendental Divine Self-Realization.
