The body has to be purified of many repressions. A great catharsis is needed for the body, a great rechana. The body has become poisoned because you have been against it, you have repressed it in many ways. Your body is existing at the minimum, that’s why you are miserable. Tantra says: Bliss is possible only when you exist at the optimum--never before it. Bliss is possible only when you live intensely. How can you live intensely if you are against the body?
You are always luke-warm. The fire has cooled down. Down the centuries the fire has been destroyed. The fire has to be rekindled.
Tantra says: First purify the body—purify it of all repressions. Allow the body energy to flow, remove the blocks. It is very difficult to come across a person who has no blocks, it is very difficult to come across a person whose body is not tight. Loosen this tightness—this tension is blocking your energy; the flow cannot be possible with this tension.”
