Klik-Klak – A Beezone study


 

 

A Beezone study of ‘Klik-Klak’ in the teaching of Adi Da Samraj

 

The following material in this study of the term ‘Klik-Klak’, comes from many different materials (talks, books, etc) by Adi Da, spoken and written over a number of years. Most of the material is exactly as he said or wrote it. But there are other parts of this study that are additions by Beezone. Much of what Beezone has added has been put in parenthesis (), but not all. So, if your reading with ‘an exacto knife’ then you will be disappointed.

What follows is Beezone understanding. You can read (and study) as you wish, but I firmly believe this to be a very useful tool in understanding the term ‘Klik-Klak’ and how Adi Da uses it.


“To mistake our perceptions (particularly our sensory perceptions) of things for the thing itself is an unjustifiable assumption about reality. This is of course reminiscent of Kant’s warning and all forms of phenomenalism about the difference between reality and our perceptions of it.

The fallacy of misplaced concreteness is largely responsible for the modern worlds and modern sciences denial of the reality of time, of experience and of mind and the perception. That such “hard core common sense intuitions” which we all utilize in practice (even if we deny them in theory) are mere illusions. That the world as represented by science is “the real world” rather than a partial and incomplete picture of a world which has aspects and features which can not be captured by objective observation, sensory perception or quantified by measurement.” – Philosophical Forums, Prothero

The Study

Part Two

Responsibility – Changing the Pattern

It’s Not About the World

Attention Makes the Difference

Wisdom and Understanding

My Revelation and Your Responsibility

(see Part One)

Avatar Adi Da uses key expression in His Wisdom-Teaching, Klik-Klak, which He uses to describe the mass of conditions that are only constantly shifting and replicating patterns, that never manifest any fixed “objects” or “entities”. He explains that the fundamental error of the presumed separate self is the attempt to superimpose the characteristics of Consciousness Itself onto the Klik-Klak realm. Ultimately, we must Realize That Which is Always Already the Case, Prior to the illusion of Klik-Klak. 

 

Responsibility – Changing the Pattern

How does the Devotional Prayer of Changes fit in?

The Devotional Prayer of Changes is associated with

sadhana,

the disposition

to transcend

conditional bondage

in Communion

with Me.

 

The disposition

of going beyond

makes use

of the psycho-physical mechanism

in a different attitude

than the one

that is simply

bound

to the pattern

as it is now

appearing.

 

Klik-klak is just

plastic.

Mind

is subtler

than grosser pattern.

Mind can affect

grosser pattern.

The presumptions

in mind

govern what happens

in the grosser.

You can

by

relinquishing presumptions

at the mind level,

the deeper level

that is governing,

what is outward –

change the pattern

at that subtle level.

It is still just

pattern patterning.

But you can

take advantage

of klik-klaks

own law

of shift-replicating,

shift –

by not using

that particular pattern,

thought,

or presumption.

(by)

Just letting it go,

breathing it away,

exhaling

(responsibility participating)

(in a greater field)

At the mind level,

the feeling level,

presume a pattern

that is

as you would

have it

be

in the gross

vibratory appearance.

 

You are associating

with the realm of

patterns

at the mind level,

prior to their

congealing

in the gross manner.

You are simply

playing a trick

on klik-klak.

You’re making use

of klik-klaks

own law

of replication.

Subtle moves

towards gross.

 

It’s not

that you’ve found

paradise.

(some secret power)

It’s that you’ve

found out

something about

klik-klak

by Revelation,

of course,

because

I am telling you this.

But it is about

this “consideration”

of Consciousness

and of Happiness.

(not because you get

what you want

by seeking).

 

In the process,

certain things are discovered,

or may be Revealed

to you.

So what I am Revealing

to you

is a total Way.

It includes

the Devotional Prayer of Changes,

and all kinds of other things,

whereby you will –

through the

responsible exercise

of all aspects

of the body-mind,

including

discriminative intelligence

and

will,

governed by

heart-disposition

in devotion to Me –

be purified,

and (ultimately)

understand,

and feel beyond,

the bondage

of conditional existence.

This can be done

through this metaphor

of the Pleasure Dome

– establishing the Yoga,

Yogic conditions of

Communion with Me

moment to moment,

whatever the conditions

may be.

 

It’s Not About the World

So it is

the capability

to exercise

such Siddhi

in the Enlightened Disposition

that is the import of this.

 

It is not an ability

to “take over the world”

“Suddenly I discovered I was klik-klak!

And I’m back!

Bigger than ever, folks!

You’ve got a God now!”

 

That is not

Me.

That is

klik-klak.

The one you always imagine

when you get

religious,

the one you always

think

must exist –

that’s klik-klak!

Because

that is the one

who

(you would like)

is in charge of the world,

who creates the world.

 

He is everything about the world,

and justifying

and blessing

the world

as world

in and of itself

for its own sake,

somehow,

as long as it serves

a purpose

in the pattern on into the future.

Utopia.

 

Attention Makes the Difference

The God of klik-klak

and the God of the Prior Condition,

of Consciousness.

It is actually attention

Attention

makes

the difference

and differences.

You become

what you

meditate on,

what you’ve

invested

with your presence

of being,

and the

characteristics

that are

inherent

only

in your own position.

So you

in effect

worship everything

to which

you grant

your attention.

you worship

what you give

maximum attention to.

 

What are the outstanding uses

of your attention?

You are effectively worshipping that,

or meditating on it,

holding it steady,

holding yourself steady

in that condition,

disposition,

relationship,

whatever it is.

 

Wisdom and Understanding

Discrimination,

heart-disposition

– faculties that reflect

the

Beyond Disposition

and that ultimately

are used

to serve

the Realization

of the

Beyond Position

– are means

for this

going

beyond

klik-klak.

Pleasure-Dome

creativity

or manifestation

ultimately

becomes the base,

or asana,

of

“moving” into

the Perfect Disposition.

 

My Revelation and Your Responsibility

I have told you

all

of this total process.

Ultimately,

you can

enter into the Domain

of practice

that is about

Realizing

That Which Is

Prior

to the illusions

of conditional existence.

I have shown you

not only

how this can be

transcended,

to be

Divinely Realized,

but I have also

pointed out

to you

that in all this

meantime,

That Which

Is

Always

Already the Case

Is

Always

Already the Case.

Notice

No matter what’s arising,

you are basically

the Witness.

This is still

the Case,

even while

there is

involvement

in klik-klak.

That Which is

Always Already the Case

is still

Always Already

the Case.

The Truth

is Always

Already the Case.

Consciousness Always

Already

Is.

Why aren’t you

then

simply living

that?

(I’ll tell you why)

You are enmeshed

in klik-klak-land.

and

There is a way

beyond it.

(But while you’re)

in the midst of it,

you can’t

just “go out the door”.

(and get out

while you’re alive)

You have to Realize

What Is Beyond this

(Klik-Klak)

by a process

that is,

at the moment,

enacted

in the context

of what was

your bondage.

(your karma)

You have to

process out

of your bondage,

You can’t

just simply think

your way out of it,

or have a lecture

magically relieves you.

It requires a lifetime

of reorientation,

surrender,

Communion,

and Grace.

If you observe,

understand,

establish the disciplines

that “trick” klik-klak

that enable you

to maintain

the zone of transcendence

and Yoga

-then klik-klak

is used to your advantage,

so to speak.

But it’s a constant art.
