My Method

Talking and Listening and receiving

Dealing with forms of seeking and attachment.

But too much talk is indulgence.

‘Listening’ develops into ‘self’-understanding as

People are served mostly in the communication
(transmission) of Silence of the Heart.

This ‘method’ is primary; what arises gets no
response, no reinforcement.

Insight and reflection is helpful but primarily
Confrontation with Spiritual Transmission.

This is not a method or technique but a

It is relatedness and a calling to move or transcend
the egoic patterns.

Then, what arises is confronted with My Spiritually
“Bright” Silence.

Then the individual becomes Awake.

This is the beginning.

And ultimately the middle and the end, in all places,
things, worlds and beings.


My sometimes “method” with My devotees was to talk about
“radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding and its
Spiritually “Bright” Heart-Way, in order to Give them the
opportunity to Listen to My Word of Argument and

And I sometimes also addressed them in place, relative to
the forms of seeking to which they attach themselves at any

Sometimes, I even Enquired of them if this, or this, or
this is the avoidance of relationship.

And, even now (and forever hereafter), when I Remain
Merely Silent, My Mere “Bright” Divine Avataric
Transcendental Spiritual Presence effectively Does all of

Thus, at the beginning, by the to-Me-devotionally-turning
process of Listening to Me (even in My Silence, and,
otherwise, by Listening to My Revelation-Leelas and My
Teaching-Word), the Only-by-Me Revealed and Given
Reality-Way of “radical” (or “at-the-root”)
“self”-understanding (or the One and Only by-Me-Revealed and
by-Me-Given “Radical” Reality-Way of the Heart, or the
Only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Radical” Reality-Way of
Adidam, or Adidam Ruchiradam) becomes Known to My

And, in due course, in all who truly Hear Me, “radical”
(or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding arises as the form
of their own Real intelligence.

Talk, if it is overmuch and overdone, is simply the
indulgence of the ego-dramatizing (or, otherwise,
heart-wasting) activity of the mind.

If My devotees talk overmuch about the Reality-Way of
“radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding (rather
than really practice the moment to moment devotional and, in
due course, Transcendental Spiritual discipline that is the
Way Itself), the “Way” becomes a mummery of egos, in all
their separate and separative display.

Overmuch talk (whereby even what must be understood is
made obscure by too much explanation) will merely scatter
even My “Bright” Transcendental Spiritual Force of the

Too much talk indulges in forms and uses of mind that are
not useful intelligence or real “self”-understanding.

Then talk is not relatedness, but only separateness, and
a reproduction and reinforcement of a state that is not
“radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding.

The patterns that continually arise in human beings are
not truly and finally served by the responses or answers
they (in and of themselves) imply and demand.

Human beings are truly served only by the Communication
of “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding, and by
true examination of the egoic “self”, and by My Spiritually
“Bright” (all-and-All-Blessing) Silence.

Some insight into the nature of seeking, as well as some
comprehension of the nature of “radical” (or “at-the-root”)
“self”-understanding, is necessary for the awakening of true
Hearing of Me (which is most fundamental

Some countering (or reflection) of the seeker’s habits,
acts, and presumptions, and some direct observations about
his or her state, may be useful in order to engender the
necessary doubt of his or her ordinary path.

But My Transcendental Spiritual Communication of the
“Bright” Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition,
Source-Condition, and Self-State is essentially a process in
Silence, whereby what arises gets no response, no
reinforcement, and (thus and thereby) becomes obsolete.

Then the individual ceases to continue in the egoic (and,
otherwise, merely, or exclusively, conditional) motion of
what arises-and he or she will, in due course (by Means of
My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Transcendental
Spiritual Grace), find “himself” or “herself” In and As the
(by-Me-Avatarically-Self-Revealed) Spiritually “Bright”
Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, Source-Condition, and
Self-State, Which Is the Source and Form of all of this
conditional appearing.

This confrontation with Spiritually “Bright” Silence in
the truly devotional and Transcendental Spiritual
relationship to the Man of “Radical” Understanding-Who Is
the Divinely Self-Realized One, and Who Divinely
Avatarically Manifests the “Bright” Transcendental
Spirit-Power of the Heart-is unlike the ordinary
“experience” of frustration in life.

Things simply arise in every one, and life provides the
present conditions whereby they are indulged, frustrated, or

But in the Spiritually “Bright” Company of the Man of
“Radical” Understanding (Who Is the Spiritually
Self-“Bright” Divine Heart Itself), what arises is
confronted by Spiritually “Bright” Silence without and by
the Spiritually “Bright” Heart within.

Therefore, My “Method” with those who have begun to
understand by means of Listening to Me is simply to invite
them to sit with Me, quietly, in simple (or searchless)
devotional Communion with Me.

I do not offer them a mere “technique” (by which to turn
upon themselves, and “work” on themselves).

Rather, I offer them a relationship-to Me.

That relationship (and necessary relatedness) inherently
obliges My devotees to turn out from themselves-and, thus,
to exceed the tendencies of their ego-patternings of

Then, what arises is confronted with My Spiritually
“Bright” Silence.

This Company of Spiritually “Bright” Silence-this
confrontation with My Spiritually “Bright” Silence, while
remaining in conscious relationship to Me-enables the
individual to be simply aware of what arises, without the
possibility of indulging or avoiding it.

Thus, the individual is allowed to see what arises,
rather than to become further egoically “self”-identified
with the stream through the unconsciousness of ordinary
conversation and action.

And the “space” between the individual and what arises is
the place where My “Bright” Divine Avataric Transcendental
Spiritual Power Works to Draw the individual from

Then the individual becomes Awake as Transcendental
Spiritual quickening and “radical” (or “at-the-root”)

The Only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of
“radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding (or the
One and Only by-Me-Revealed and by-Me-Given “Radical”
Reality-Way of the Heart, or the Only-by-Me Revealed and
Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam) is, in practice, the
devotional (and, in due course, Transcendental Spiritual)
relationship to Me, and (therefore) to My Spiritually
“Bright” Divine Avataric Self-Silence, and (Thus) to the
“Bright” Divine Transcendental Spiritual Power Avatarically
Transmitted by Me in Silence (and, Thereby, found within,
and everywhere) – until, at last (by all My Divine Avataric
Means), there is the Most Perfect Realization of My
Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Divine Self-Nature,
Self-Condition, and Self-State, Which Is the True (or Real)
Divine Heart (Itself), and the Truly Spiritually “Bright”
Divine Spherical Self-Domain (Itself).

Then the individual finds only Spiritually “Bright”
Silence in his or her inner forms.

But everywhere, in all the “worlds”, that one sees the
Divine Avataric Self-Heart and Transcendental Spirit-Power
of Me Stand Out-Aloud and “Bright”.
