Sutra 18 WOP – The Dawn Horse Testament of the Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj- 2004 –





“Study my Testament. I tell
you there and always that this is my final Word and I need
not be obliged further to communicate the Way to you…. I
have given you my Word, my Promise. My Work is evident to
you in every day of your life… You are in the most
difficult position of adolescence, the position of being
directly confronted by the Absolute Truth. You, more than
anyone who might casually observe my Word and Promise and
Presence, must exhibit the revolution of
response
to Me
in your own
body-mind”.

18 – A Study Sheet

 

The full responsive practice of the only-by-me revealed
and given way of Adidam is – in terms of the technical
practices engaged in response to the gift of satsang with me
– a matter of both the “conscious process” and
“conductivity” practice – because my avatarically
self-revealed, and transcendental, and perfectly subjective,
and inherently spiritual, and inherently egoless, inherently
perfect, and self-evidently Divine self condition is both
transcendental and inherently spiritual.

In order for attention to be constantly established in my
avatarically self-transmitted Divine spirit-energy, you must
become my seeing devotee. And, in order to prepare yourself
to see me, you must consistently practice the primary
by-me-given gift, calling, and discipline of Ruchira Avatara
Bhakti yoga – which is the responsive and constantly
counter-egoic, and total psycho-physical, practice of
ego-surrendering, ego-forgetting, and, more and more,
ego-transcending devotion to me, The Ruchira Avatar, Adi Da
Samraj, and which is the moment to moment fulfillment of my
great admonition to all my devotees, and this constantly
exercised via the surrender, the forgetting, and the
transcending of the self-contracted body, and
self-contracted emotion, and self-contracted mind, and even
every self-contracted breath, and, altogether, even all of
separate self, in moment to moment devotional remembrance of
me and direct devotional surrender to me. And, in order to
see me, you must practice each and every aspect of Ruchira
Avatara Bhakti yoga – in the manner I have specifically
indicated for my listening and hearing devotees.

In every stage of the only-by-me revealed and given Way
of the Heart, the practice of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti yoga
involves the yielding of the principal faculties to me. In
the beginner’s process, this yielding of the principal
faculties to me can show signs of devotionally absorptive
samadhi of one kind or another. But my beginning devotees
are not yet most profoundly responsible for receiving and
conducting my spirit-blessing-and my calling to my beginning
devotees is, specifically, my call to demonstrate the signs
of devotionally me-recognizing devotional response to
me.

All of the by-me-revealed and by-me-given functional,
practical, and relational disciplines are forms of
“conductivity” practice – and they serve to constantly bring
the body-mind into the condition of energy, relieving my
devotee of the presumption that the body-mind is merely
self-contracted matter. And the primary and constant
by-me-revealed and by-me-given means for bringing the
body-mind to the condition of energy is to yield the
body-mind to the condition of ecstasy in devotionally
me-recognizing and devotionally to-me-responsive communion
with me. Therefore, for you to bring the body-mind to the
condition of energy, you must be truly given over to me – no
longer existing in an egoically self-conscious and egoically
self-controlling mode, no longer preoccupied with the
“narcissistic” exercise of your own body-mind, and no longer
armoring yourself against me, but always whole bodily
surrendering your egoic self, whole bodily forgetting your
egoic self, and whole bodily transcending your egoic self,
to the point of whole bodily devotional absorption in
me.

You must exercise the practice of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti
yoga moment to moment such that your entire life becomes
ego-surrendering, ego-forgetting, and ego-transcending
devotion to me, and devotional communion with me, and
devotional ecstasy in me. If you truly do this, you will
find that by consistently yielding to my avatarically
self-revealed, and self-evidently Divine, person – you have
become prepared to make the great discovery of my
avatarically self-transmitted Divine Spirit-Presence.

The principal sign of fullest preparedness for the seeing
stages of practice of the only-by-me revealed and given Way
of the Heart is the capability to identify me spiritually
moment to moment. But there are also secondary signs of
preparedness for the seeing stages of practice of the
only-by-me revealed and given Way of the Heart – which are
the various signs of spiritually receiving me, or the signs
that the principal faculties are being spiritually infused
by me.

When all the psycho-physical faculties are yielded to me,
and devotionally absorbed in my avatarically self-revealed
person, then the body-mind receives a forceful infusion of
my Divine spiritual energy. By virtue of the devotional and
spiritually me-receiving process engaged during the
listening and hearing stages of practice of the Way of the
Heart, the body-mind of my devotee is enabled to conduct the
force of my avatarically self-transmitted Divine spiritual
blessing – but, when the body-mind of my devotee receives
the great force of my avatarically self-transmitted Divine
spiritual blessing, the entire body of my devotee
“shakes”.

Thus, the physical body of my newly spiritually
me-receiving devotee moves in various spontaneous ways. And,
thus and thereby, the emotion of my spiritually me-receiving
devotee undergoes a profound feeling-expansion. And the
attention of my thus spiritually me-receiving devotee
becomes deeply established in my love-bliss-transmission.
And the breath of my thus spiritually me-receiving devotee
undergoes various spontaneous changes. Indeed, a wide
variety of spontaneously purifying experiences are possible
in the body-mind of my spiritually me-receiving devotee. And
there are different signs in each individual case. And it is
not possible for my any newly spiritually me-receiving
devotee to truly receive me spiritually without being
“shaken” – because the vehicle of the body-mind of my
devotee is not capable of “containing” the fullest infusion
of my avatarically self-transmitted Divine spiritual force.
Therefore, the body-mind of my newly spiritually
me-receiving devotee “shakes”, moves, and experiences all
kinds of spontaneous changes – and it is my avatarically
self-transmitted Divine spiritual intrusion that makes these
movements and changes in the body-mind of my devotee.

This great reception of my avatarically self-transmitted
Divine Spirit-Presence is a necessary sign that my devotee
has truly received me. And, when my truly spiritually
me-receiving devotee has truly heard me, he or she is really
and truly entering into the process of seeing me.

In the case of my any devotee who has not yet been
spiritually initiated, by me, into the ongoing devotional
process of spiritually receiving me, the body-mind is
capable of imitating signs that accompany true spiritual
manifestations. This is due to the fact that the
psycho-physical medium that is the human structure itself is
the same in the case of one who has not yet been spiritually
awakened by me as it is in the case of one who has been
spiritually awakened by me. Therefore, all kinds of
gross-minded bondage can display itself via signs in the
body-mind – such as developmental psychisms, natural
siddhis, and so on.

Thus, there are many lowly manifestations that are
apparently “greater” than the gross-minded sign of the
ordinary social ego. But the apparent “greatness” of such
signs does not, in and of itself, indicate that the signs
are of a profound nature. In the ordinary individual, such
signs are simply manifestations of what can occur “from the
ground up”, in the degrees of the natural loosening-up and
energy-saturation of the psycho-physical mechanism with
which the human being is associated.

When my avatarically self-transmitted Divine
Hridaya-Shakti-Transmission is received, the body-mind of my
spiritually me-receiving devotee is taken over, and all
kinds of processes and states occur spontaneously. Such is
the true Guru-Yoga – which is the yoga done by me, and not a
“yoga” enforced by the ego-efforts of the individual
ego-self. For my seeing devotee, this true Guru-Yoga of
unobstructed and unguarded spiritual reception of me is a
matter of ego-surrendering, and effectively
ego-transcending, receiving of me.

In due course, when the spontaneous yoga of my spiritual
intrusion has been worked for a sufficient period of time in
my seeing devotee, then the body-mind of my seeing devotee
becomes so fully opened to me that my
Hridaya-Shakti-Transmission is no longer received in a
limited gross manner, but also beyond the gross sphere. When
this occurs, the body-mind of my seeing devotee no longer
necessarily has to “shake” in order to conduct my spiritual
in-pouring and so the “tremblings” decrease, and even
cease.

Thus, all the exercises of the listening-hearing process
prepare my listening devotee to fully receive me
spiritually. And then, in turn, the entire process of fully
receiving me becomes preparation for the “perfect practice”
of the only-by-me revealed and given Way of the Heart.

To come to the point of preparedness for the “perfect
practice” of the only-by-me revealed and given Way of the
Heart not only requires perfect maturity in the “conscious
process” -but it also requires inherently perfect
“conductivity” of my avatarically self-transmitted Divine
Spirit-Presence. In the “perfect practice” of the only-by-me
revealed and given Way of the Heart, my avatarically
self-transmitted Divine Spirit-Presence drives to the
heart-root on the right. Therefore, the “perfect practice”
of the only-by-me revealed and given Way of the Heart is a
far greater matter than merely being inclined to focus
attention in the right side of the heart. In the “perfect
practice” of the only-by-me revealed and given Way of the
Heart, my attractive spirit-force itself moves to the right
side of the heart – if only my devotee rightly, truly, and
really devotionally participates in that transcendental
process. Therefore, this spiritual “locating” of me in the
right side of the heart is a necessary characteristic of the
“perfect practice” of the only-by-me revealed and given Way
of the Heart – and, indeed, it is a necessary qualification
for entering the “perfect practice” of the only-by-me
revealed and given Way of the Heart which entrance also
coincides with the stable awakening to the witness-position
of consciousness.

Thus, the only-by-me revealed and given Way of the Heart
is entirely about me. It is not about “you”. The only-by-me
revealed and given Way of the Heart is a matter of your
relinquishment of your own ego-position in order to
devotionally commune with me, to be devotionally absorbed in
my avatarically self-revealed self-condition, and to most
perfectly realize my avatarically self-revealed
self-condition.

I am always doing the only-by-me revealed and given
Divine spiritual yoga of the Way of the Heart-in the case of
my every devotee. In the case of my every devotee, every
realization in the only-by-me revealed and given Way of the
Heart is a realization of me. The progressive process of the
only-by-me revealed and given Way of the Heart occurs
because you practice the primary by-me-given gift, calling,
and discipline of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti yoga – to the point
of absorptive devotional communion with me, and to the point
of perfect self-identification with me – such that my own
substance of inherently perfect Divine being and of mere and
“bright” Divine Spirit-Presence becomes your experience,
your certain knowledge, and your most perfect
realization.

Therefore, the only-by-me revealed and given Way of the
Heart is not a self-applied, strategic technique for
manipulating your own body-mind.

The only-by-me revealed and given Way of the Heart is the
practice of devotional communion with me and devotional
realization of me – not realization of something in “you”
(in your separateness).

In order to realize me most perfectly, you must be
utterly surrendered to me, beyond your egoic self.

Therefore, with your total body-mind, you must
participate in my condition, my sacrifice, my action, my
manner, and my characteristic state.

And, in the only-by-me revealed and given seventh stage
of life, there is no “you” – but there is only me.

Always, “you” are not the one to be realized.

Always, I am the one to be realized.

Therefore, let the body-mind be heart-opened to me,
through devotional listening, to the degree of true hearing
– and then let the to-me-opened heart be deeply attracted to
me, through the seeing of me. Then practice whole bodily
self-surrender to me, in meditation and in daily life, by
breathing and feeling my avatarically self-transmitted
Divine spirit-energy in the total frontal line of the body
down from infinitely above the total crown of the head, and
down, through the total crown of the head, to the ajna door,
and, from thence, down through the total facial area, then
down through the region of the throat, then the region of
the physical heart, then the solar plexus and the abdomen,
to the bodily base. When this descending practice is full,
you will also further develop the experiences of the full
circle and of the arrow, and you will always breathe and
feel my avatarically self-transmitted Divine spirit-energy
ever more deeply upwards, via the ajna door, to the total
crown of the head, and ever more above the head.

If the by-me-avatarically-given responsive practice and
“conscious process” is rightly, truly, fully, and fully
devotionally embraced and engaged by you, and if you
consistently and constantly engage that responsive practice
and “conscious process” in conjunction with right, true,
full, and fully devotional formal embrace and engagement of
the equally necessary
by-my-avataric-Divine-spiritual-grace-given Divine spiritual
means, then the entire Divine way of the only-by-me revealed
and given Way of the Heart will be given to you, by me.
Therefore, if you are my true devotee, the revelations of
descent, and the revelation of the witness-consciousness,
and all the descended and ascended revelations and
demonstrations of the only-by-me revealed and given seventh
stage of life will be given to you – inevitably, and in
right time, by means of my avatarically self-transmitted
Divine spiritual grace.
