Traditional Yoga Like Porn for the Soul

Traditional Yogic Methods Like Porn For the Soul?

Avatar Adi Da Samraj:

We have talked about traditional yogic methods of seeking 
Self-realization or God union. 
They are something like sitting in a room, breathing heavily, 
and looking at erotic pictures. 
You can generate something that is like passion, 
but you are never going to make love! 
It never becomes that. 
Just so, you can sit and breathe methodically, turning inward, 
contemplating Divine images or God ideas, 
but it is never going to become God union. 
God has never entered into it. 
It is a very hopeful practice at best. 
There is no God union until God is there to be unioned with. 
As a lover depends on his loved one, 
the God seeker depends on the living Presence of God 
before there can be any God union. 
And when God appears, 
you are not going to have to do your spiritual breathing! 
It will all be very obvious. 
You won’t have to think about what is necessary to be done 
to become one with God.
It is only the absence of God, the suffering, 
the ignorant condition that gets you involved in all of this seeking. 
It is only where God is already not 
that all of these practices begin.
