You can always trust an eating gorilla. Having found his food, he has put aside all effort and concern for survival. He has surrendered his eccentricities, his obsessive urges, and the tension in his most characteristic qualities. He has become submissive to the ordinary motive and desire that is real hunger, since he is now certain of its satisfaction. He is essentially benign, playful, even lovable. He is simply eating. And he trusts any others who may be present or who may approach, as long as there is sufficient food and they also stop to eat it.
In our human world, a gorilla is not at peace. Food is in doubt. Eating is no ordinary affair of hunger and assured satisfaction. Trust, love, peace, and meditation, the essence of the plainest fare when we are in our natural ease, are now a rare occasion, a private matter, for the gourmets and ascetics who populate our human table. Food is only a ceremony, a link to Life and its Source. When food is in doubt, so also are Life, Truth, and the Divine. Food is a link to Eternal Life. But happiness as Eternal Life depends on our ability to be satisfied, at ease in our relations, surrendered in love, and a sacrifice to Infinity through devotional meditation, or release into the Current of Life to its Source.
This extraordinary book demonstrates: 1) How the true principle of health is Love, or the feeling -connection to Infinite Life 2) How reactive emotion is the root of all food obsessions and common health failures 3) How the life-energy received and distributed through the breath is the primary form of human food 4) How the regenerative vegetarian diet is the best daily diet for health and well-being 5) How we can compensate for physical and emotional imbalances through right diet and health practices 6) How diet is a necessary aspect of a pleasurable, mature, and regenerative sex life 7) How to use fasting, herbal remedies, and dietary modifications to purify and regenerate the body.
