general, what the “world” wants-and, therefore, what
“religious” institutions tend to provide-is social
association and optimistic talk, perhaps in combination with
“self”-applied “techniques” that people can use as means for
consoling themselves. Therefore, in the “modern world”,
instead of cultures of right practice, there are “religion
businesses” and “workshops”. The “modern world” is a
fragmented “world” – full of individuals who regard their
own separateness and independence as “absolute”, who
demonstrate no profundity, and who are not moved by
profundity. In this “modern world”, human beings are
becoming progressively more and more preoccupied with
“self”, and with all of the “whatevers” that can be pursued
within the framework of egoity and

True human culture is the
esoteric culture of Reality-Realization – and the process of
Reality-Realization requires devotion to a genuine Spiritual
Master. However, people in general are not interested in
becoming devoted to a Spiritual Master. People in general
are not interested in finding a Realizer – nor are they
interested in the fact that the Realizer Is the “Who” and
“What” to be Realized.

In the “modern world”, people are
obsessively interested in what is “out there” – what they do
with one another in the common “world”. If that is your
disposition, you remain involved in mere exchanges of words
– socializing with one another, and relating to the other
aspects of the common “world” with which you are associated.
In that case, you either refuse all involvement with
“religion”, or else you merely make token gestures in the
direction of “religion”. Such is the institutionalized
exotericism of what is conventionally called

The exclusive preoccupation with
what is “out there” is a disposition that is now manifested
everywhere on Earth – with dreadful results. Listen to the
global “daily news” of terrible violence and threats. Look
at the absolute emptiness of “consumer egoity”. It is

Who has seen the madness of this

Who is disenchanted enough with
that madness to want to find a Spiritual

For whom is this “world” so much
of a dead-end that it cannot be accepted on its own terms,
or for its own sake?

Where is someone for whom there
must be a greater Reality – someone who will be utterly
devoted to finding It?

Where are such people?

In general, people are obsessed
with the “world”, obsessed with perpetuating the patterning
that is already controlling their lives. The non-humans also
show the signs of patterning – but, in their case, the
patterning is a natural genetic structure. Genetic
patterning is present in human beings as well – but, in
addition, human beings exhibit mental patterning. Thus,
human beings are not patterned by natural, genetically based
factors only. Human beings are also patterned by mind –
which has its own kind of existence, but not a substantial
one. Mind has a virtual existence only. Therefore, human
beings are participating in a language-“world”-and, in that
sense, they are patterned not only by natural structures but
also by mind-forms.

If you are merely involved in
patterned behavior, you are driven to continue that
patterning. You have not yet “come to the end of your rope”
– such that you are actually moved beyond that patterning,
and all that it creates as your destiny.

Since the moment of My Birth, I
have not had five minutes of inclination to be satisfied by
the possibilities in this “world”. To Me, it has always been
perfectly self-evident that this “world” is not
satisfactory, and that I could not possibly choose this
“world”, in and of itself. To Me, there is no argument for
choosing this “world”. Choose what? Just to play this absurd
game-and then drop dead? And why play, if the dropping dead
could happen in any moment? Simply because you have the
inclination to play the game does not necessarily mean that
you will get to do so – even for one more

What is there about the
conditionally manifested “world” that is potentially
satisfying to such a degree that human beings can accept it
absolutely? In Truth, there is nothing about the “world”
that is thus satisfying. Nevertheless, human beings are
patterned in such a manner that, to them, this “world” seems

The conditionally manifested
“world” is simply pattern patterning. Enacting their genetic
and mental patterning is, in general, all that human beings

If you become disenchanted with
the patterning “world”, you look for something Greater. If
you are truly disenchanted, you cannot be consoled by
believer’s nonsense. Rather, the “What” you would have is
Something that you cannot yet name. It must be Something
that is Inherently and Absolutely Satisfactory, Something
That is Greater than all other possibilities. Even though
you have things to do in daily life, and you continue to
live and breathe, and so forth, you are always looking for
That Which Is Ultimately and Inherently Satisfactory. And,
when you find It, you devote your life to It.

That is how True Spiritual life
is supposed to work. That is how it has worked
traditionally. Those of the disposition to look for
Something Greater would, when they found a True Realizer,
fall at the Realizer’s Feet, make That One their Spiritual
Master, and serve the Spiritual Master with their lives and
with all that they had. Such serious people constantly
turned to their Spiritual Master by means of the inner
discipline of “self”-forgetting devotion and the outer
discipline of “self”-forgetting service.

Such is the basic traditional
Teaching. Such is the fundamental Teaching. That Teaching is
not elaborate. That Teaching does not even need to be
communicated in words. You turn to the Master, and you serve
the Master-and that is it. That is the ancient Teaching.
Fundamentally, this practice is not something that can be
communicated by words. It is just something you do, having
found the Master. This is a self-evident and tacitly
communicated Teaching.

In the Great Tradition of
humankind, there are various detailed teachings about the
process of relationship with the Spiritual Master, about
What there is to Realize, and so forth. My Own such detailed
Instruction is fully and completely Given in My many
“Source-Texts”. Nevertheless, My fundamental Instruction is
very simple: Turn to Me, and serve Me. Such is the inner
discipline and the outer discipline of the only-by-Me
