Until you Realize,
You Will Never..
.


The following
excerpts are from the writings and talks of Adi Da Samraj.
They fall under a general heading of “until you understand
and realize things you will never”.
The
excerpts may seem disjoined but they can be followed and
studied as a ‘theme’.

There is seemingly a
‘paradox” or a ‘contraction’ to the Dharma.
Understanding Dharma can a very
slippery undertaking because logic, reason (the tools of the
discursive mind) are not fully capable of reducing the
‘subject’ of the Dharma to a form of understanding that is
‘intelligible’. Although it (the mind) would like to, and
there are many gallant attempts to do so, but unfortunately
ALL attempts, no matter how ‘slick’ and fascinating they
are, do not bring Realization of Spiritual egoless
Consciousness which is prior to ego-mind.

This of course does not leave the
‘subject’ out of bounds to an understanding that is helpful
and necessary. There is a ‘weave’ or a ‘samyama’ (in-depth
consideration) that can be entered into that will help guide
one’s understanding. But as all guides lead the, traveler
must ultimately make the journey alone.

“So it is right and appropriate
and basically necessary to come to a real considered
position about this matter for the sake of practice, not for
the sake of consolation, not for the sake of mere
believing.” – Adi Da Samraj


Until
you Understand (Realize)…
“The mirror is
covered with dust and you must clean it and you will never
succeed!
That doesn’t mean there is no process of realization. There
is one.”

 

Until you realize the
self-transcending disposition and begin to relate to
everything differently, what you do really makes no
difference. I am not saying that nothing will make a
difference no matter what you do. You can do all kinds of
things and realize all kinds of effects. I mean that you
could take on any of discipline, path, trip or style and
none of them will change anything ultimately. They will all
simply express the same bound disposition, the same
self-possessed personality.”

“It is said in the ancient
scriptures of India that there is One Thing to be known, and
if you know It, then you know everything. To realize
Brahman, the Principle upon which all of this is a play, is
the Supreme Science. Until you realize that
Principle, you can never understand the play of
manifestation. You may manufacture all kinds of explanations
for it, none of which is true, but until you Realize
Brahman, Truth, Consciousness, until you are It, until you
enter into It most perfectly, become the Siddha or the
Master of that Realization, existence is a torment, deluded,
absurd, and maniacal.”

Energy
and Consciousness


“Spiritual life is moral
transformation through love, through Intuition. It is not a
matter of gaining knowledge. All knowledge passes…You
will never
acquire any ultimate certainty through the
means of knowledge…you will not become certain of
(Reality) through any egoic pursuit of certainty, knowledge,
or information.

The
Way That I Teach


“You must trust whatever your life
is. It put you into being, so you already depend on it. It
is what you are, and you must be willing to surrender to it
and then let it show you the body’s secret. But you will
never realize
it while contracted and full of
stress.

Primal
Urge to Sanctuary


“You basically are afraid of that
you see because you identify with the personae which is
dependent on the machine and which hasn’t understood itself
to the point of breaking the spell of the software hardware
game and realizing the eternal condition which is eternally
free therefore of all these consequences. It’s not merely
making them; it’s always free of them. They are a play upon
it and have no independent existence and yet the Great
Condition is not responsible for them like a cause is
responsible for its effect. It is a great paradox. It’s not
to be figured out perfectly. It is to be transcended utterly
and that will not make sense to you until you realize
that you truly are uncomfortable and are never going to be
comfortable as long as you are merely a conditional
personae. You never will no matter how grand the program may
ultimately become, no matter what plane you may be born into
you see, you’ll always be looking at this strange apparatus.
This is what I have always bee sensitive to. This is why
yogic phenomena, mystical phenomena have never bound me up
you see. I’ve had all these experiences — when I have the
experiences, I see this weirdo machine you see.”

The
Virtue of Discomfort


Until you realize the true
significance of your own activity. In this stage of practice
you must do it and your doing is a response to the Presence,
to that Divine nature that you have begun to
feel.

The Presence may not be known
independent of feeling. You cannot think about the Presence.
Thought is itself a form of tension, a contraction. When the
mind is occupied in thinking, it is no longer-occupied in
attention. So the mind must become attention to the Divine
through the Name of God. And the heart must come attention
to the Divine through feeling. And the body must also become
attention to the Presence.

Thus the breath is the instrument
whereby the heart and the body and the mind are linked to
the Presence. All the normal functions of your natural life,
your gross life, your ordinary human life, are turned to the
Presence through felt attention and the breath.

It takes a while to adapt to the
process.”

Heart
Felt Attention


“No questions then the only thing
you have left is to do it. The practice must occupy your
entire life. You must devote your entire life to it. You
must be devoted completely to it. Otherwise, being only
superficially associated with it, you may perhaps realize a
better life by virtue of your coming into my Company, but
you will not fulfill the Way in your lifetime.
Instead you will devote the Virtue of this Way, the
Spiritual Transmission Awakened in my Company, to the
ordinary purposes of your living, and fundamentally It will
only grant Energy to the same thing you are already doing.
Therefore, to the degree you are suffering, your suffering
will be intensified. To the degree you are successful, your
successes will be intensified. But you will never
merely be successful. You will also become exaggerated and
bastardize the Virtue that is given to you.”

“if you spend your entire lifetime
resorting to the egoic technique and fretting over, your
limits and merely acquiring information about yourself,
you will never truly practice the Way.”

The
Art of Spiritual Life


“I am confronting this mortal
affair, because I am going to die. There is no doubt in my
mind about that. This body is dying. It already looks old.
Its not my business to be perfect, and there is no
perfection here that I have ever seen. If some white-suited,
absolute God-man comes up here who is the glorious trinity
incarnate, I’ll bow down to him before any of you. I’ll be
running out on the lawn a lot faster than any of
you.

As it turns out, I am That. But as
you see, nobody bows down to me. Everybody struggles against
me, like you. You cannot recognize the Truth in the form of
the paradox of these limitations. You expect some archetype
or other to waddle in front of you. You will never see it
happen.”

Love
is Sufficient Wisdom


“The Way is to yield the self, the
self-contraction, in all of its faculties, to the degree of
Samadhi, and then to be drawn in that Samadhi to My Perfect
Position, Prior to the body-mind, and enter into That Most
Profoundly until you Realize there is only Me. And in
that Realization it will be the same as to say that there is
only You.”

Paradox
of Entanglement


 

Until you
Realize
Me Most Perfectly, egoity governs all of your
life – absolutely every detail of it. Egoity is
suffering-inherently. Egoity is contraction – a
strangulation, a shutting off, a disturbance. Therefore, you
are motivated to seek. You seek to be relieved of that
stress that is your own creation, to “satisfy” yourself out
of it somehow, to “enjoy” yourself out of it somehow, by
exploiting the capability for experiencing the modifications
of Existence Itself.”
