Descending Force – Adi Da Samraj

The Desending Force
of Life


In Satsang are manifestations of the
ascending and decending quality….they harmonize
life, they made it more functional, they make it more

The energetic manifestations of the
Maha-Siddhi are not the point of view of the work, and they
are not to be held on to. The manifestation of the ascending
and decending force, and of the Shakti is not the point of
view of the work or to be sought in the work. It’s an aspect
of its spontaneous activity, it’s not its point of

of Understanding

There is an absolute, timeless
infinite, untouched, perfect realm, not describable, which
is eternal. And you can call that heaven if you want. It is
the God-world. Coming out of the God-world, the God-Light,
decending from it.


I’ve elaborated them as the Heart or
the Self or Existence, fundamentally – the Light or the
Mind, the Creative Source and Life, or Motion, the Fullness.
that which becomes the individual separate self, sense or
ego is a reflection stepped down of the first principle of
the self or existence, perfect. That which is mind or the
differentiating power, realized by experience is the
reflection stepped down of the Light, or Mind in its
ultimate sense. In that which is experienced as desire,
motion, the life energy itself decending and
ascending is the reflection stepped down of the principle of
Life, or Motion.


The Expansion of the Heart is
without qualification, Radiant in all directions to
Infinity, losing its center by including all objects, and
losing its boundaries by penetration of all contraction. The
Fullness of this Process is also experientially communicated
in the upper, or subtle, and lower, or gross, dimensions of
the whole body – first to the subtlest, and decending
simultaneously to the lowest.

of Instruction

That Living Current is breathed in a
Circle, decending in the front of the body and
ascending in the spinal line of the body, between the crown
and the feet or the crown and the bodily base of the
perineum. It is felt from the heart in all directions. It is
love or radiant emotion. We should be constantly relaxed
from base to crown or foot to crown into this Living
Current, breathing It in the Circle and feeling It from the
heart in all directions.

Bithday Message from Jesus and Me

When does spiritual life get real?
When is comes into the body and becomes part of the practice
of spirit conductivity.

The physical body bears the signs
and functions of the form of reality. Just so does every
other body in every realm.

A physical body represents the basic
circuit of real form. Most important are the two primary
entrances of force or consciousness. These are the navel
region and the aperture at the top of the head. These
are the primary centers of connection and turning of the
current of existence.

The navel is the entrance of formal
energy, the center where all decending energies are
received. The aperture of the head is the entrance of
consciousness or subtle force, the center where all
ascending energies are received. At the aperture of the head
the ascending energies are returned or turned to descent. At
the navel region the decending energies are returned
or turned to ascent.

The upper center represents that
aspect we call consciousness. The lower center represents
that aspect we call form or extension.

The Circuit or process of reality
involves many centers or formulations of the qualities in
reality. Thus, we perceive the full circle or cycle of that
form. But is is all in fact a process ultimately between the
two primary poles, consciousness and form, represented in
the region of the head’s aperture and the region of the

The process of existence is a kind
of alchemy between these two primary aspects. They are
simultaneous and continuous, but their conscious realization
depends upon a subtle and direct understanding of their form
at any moment. This understanding is symbolized and intuited
indirectly in the expressions of traditional alchemy as well
as all systems, occult, theological, religious, spiritual,
philosophical, psychological, etc. But real understanding is
a direct matter of present consciousness.

and Consciousness

Experience of the thumbs. I called
it the thumbs just like I called the spiritual light the
“bright.” These are both demonstrations of aspects of the
circle of force which is native to life.

Here the decending in the
form of the thumbs, and prior to that the ascending in the
form of recollection of the embryonic rotate. I go on here
just to describe the difference between this experience of
the thumbs and what took place in later times in meditation,
when it was finally allowed to take place.

When it was allowed to take place,
then a third element was demonstrated, and that is the unity
of the decending and the ascending life. When the
thumbs were allowed to penetrate completely, when there was
opening to it, full allowance of it in consciousness and
life there was a reversal, what I felt at the time as a
reversal of the current of awareness, of the current of
life. And all it was, really, was the decending fully
descended and connected then with the ascending. And at that
point there was the loss of the sense of containment, either
up or down, as complete movement into the fully realized
spherical or continuous circular motion of force without
obstruction, and when that occurred the condition of
manifest existence became coincident with and equivalent to
full illumination or realization. It no longer provided an
obstruction. Living in the manifest condition then, was the
same as being eternal, immortal, the samadhi of the full
circle (which was enjoyed later on) which began to be
enjoyed later on, is in the third aspect of this revelation
of the human mechanism.

Now these matters that are dealt
with in this section here are the signs of the yogic

of Understanding

As a mechanical matter, at the level
of the body-mind itself, health is fundamentally a matter of
becoming freely responsible for the living current in Its
decending or frontal mode. Healing another is
fundamentally a matter of working on this frontal current,
helping to bring the person, not just physically, but in
every way, into a condition of openness to the living
current, so that there exist no relational, physical,
emotional, psychic, or mental obstructions or reasons for
contraction that limit the flow of force.

Reception of the Spirit Force

“It is from here that the spirit
current descends into the body, giving life and strength to
the physical frame and its respective limbs. This spirit
current plays an important part in the nourishment of the
body and if this is cut off from any part, it loses all
vitality and forthwith ceases to function”.
Soul’s Journey
– Param Sant
Kirpal Singh

The self-indulgent and irresponsible
person is not aware that all action, all manifestation, is
itself sacrifice. Speech is sacrifice. Sexual activity, even
emotional-sexual relationship itself, is sacrifice. All
action tends to break the life-current, the sphere of
decending and ascending force. Where action is
performed, the internal circle of life, or energy, tends to
be broken and released temporarily. Do that enough, do it in
ignorance and absolutely, and there is only death as a
result. Do it intelligently, and it gives life, it generates
life through relationship, for relationship is a universal
duplication of the internal circle of energy. To sacrifice
oneself, or open oneself, into relationship is to realize
the greater Form, the true and perfect Circle, the
Completion that transcends limited, or separative,
individuality. Therefore, true and conscious sacrifice is a
form of completion, not of interruption or


These Signs There Should Appear
Progressive Evidence Of What I Have, Since Childhood, Called
“The Thumbs”. Beginning In The “Basic” Context Of The Fourth
Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, There Should Be At
Least Occasional experience Of An Intense Invasion Of The
Frontal Line By The Grace-Given Spirit-Force, Beginning At
the top of the head and Descending Into The lower
vital Region To the bodily base.

Dawn Horse Testament

The way, then, to submit whole
bodily when the body-mind is in a contracted state is to
place your attention lower down in the line of the frontal
Current, place it in the lower abdomen, in the genital
region, in the perineum. In these regions there is in
general a residual sense of pleasure, because there is a
portion of this Current always decending – it does
leak through this knot, you see. Thus if you place attention
in this pleasurable expression of the Current, the knot,
which is being reinforced by holding attention in this
anxious place will tend to relax. Then resort to the
devotional disposition, and, the practice of, conductivity
will be found to be fruitful”.

Art of Spiritual Life

The senior tradition of the
Kundalini Shakti is associated with a process in the total
Circle of the body mind. This is because the
decending and circulating Spirit Power moves in the
total natural circuit of the body mind. Thus, the
decending and circulating Spirit Power first enters
the frontal line, where the foundation work of opening and
purifying the physical, the etherie, the emotional, and the
mental personality must he accomplished. Then, potentially,
once the frontal line is sufficiently purified to allow the
decending Kundalini Shakti to turn about at the
bodily base, the Kundalini Shakti spontaneously begins the
upward Yogic course. Thus, because the true process
Generated hy Kundalini Shaktipat Works first in the frontal
line and then in the spinal line, the Kundalini Shaktipat
tradition actually begins in the Event of the truly
Spiritual Initiation of the “basic” fourth stage of life,
and, thereafter, it continues in the “advanced” fourth stage
of life and the fifth stage of life.


The second stage is the time of
developing a conscious relationship to the descending aspect
of the Life-Force and feeling-sensitivity to the polarities
of male and female.
