Sutra 47 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”.

Adi Da Samraj, October 1985

Three Primary “views”

Gross (physical), Subtle (mind), Causal (consciousness)

From the point of view of the gross body, Everything Is Perceived, Conceived, and Presumed To Be An Irreducibly material, finite, mortal Process.

From the point of view of the mind, Everything Is Perceived, Conceived, and Presumed To Be An Effect Made Of The infinite objective Substance Of indestructible Cosmic Light, and Caused By The Infinite Totality Of Cosmic Mind. And Even The Totality Of Cosmic Mind Is, Thus, Presumed To Be Cosmic Light Itself.

From The “Point Of View” Of Consciousness Itself, Everything conditional, objective, or Objectified Is Perceived, Conceived, and Presumed To Be Consciousness Itself, Such That conditional, objective, or Objectified Reality Is Inherently Realized To Be A Merely Apparent Modification Of, In, and Upon The Native Radiance Of Consciousness Itself.

These Three Primary Perceptions, Conceptions, or Presumptions Also Correspond To The Stages Of Life.

The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On the point of view Of gross conditional Existence Corresponds To The conventional Perception, Conception, or Presumption Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life.

 

Fourth Stage of Life

The Fourth Stage Of Life Is A Transitional Stage – Originally Grounded In the gross conditional point of view Of The First Three Stages Of Life, but

Fourth Stage of Life is:

Awakening Toward the point of view, The Perception, The Conception, and The Presumption Of…

subtle conditional Existence, mind, and Cosmic Light.

 

The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On the point of view Of subtle conditional Existence, mind, and Cosmic Light, or Cosmic Mind, Corresponds To The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Associated With The Fifth Stage Of Life.

The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On The “Point Of View” Of Consciousness Itself Corresponds To The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Associated With The Sixth Stage Of Life.

 

All three levels can be seen from…

Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Stage of Life

Any One Of The Three Primary Modes Of Perception, Conception, or Presumption I Have Just Described Could Be Affirmed – and is – By individuals, groups, and Traditions In The human Sphere – but…

 

Which One Of The Three Modes Is Ultimately Correct?

It Is The Third – or The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On The “Point Of View” Of Consciousness Itself. Why? Because,

 

No Matter what arises as Your experience or knowledge, You Are. The Witness Of it

 

and That Which Witnesses Is Consciousness Itself.

 

No Matter what arises, You Are Consciousness Itself.

You Are Never Really Separately Identical To what Is objective To You –

but

You Tend

To Feel Specific Identification With objective conditions,

Until You Are Able To Inspect Your Real “Situation”,

Which Is Always Already Free Consciousness Itself, The Inherently Free Subject In The Context Of conditional objects, and Who Is The Self-Existing, Self-Radiant, and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Condition Of The One and only and inherently Indivisible and inherently egoless Conscious Light That Is Always Already Prior To all conditional objects and Always Already Prior To Apparently Objectified Light Itself. Therefore, the points of view of body and mind Are Secondary To The “Point Of View” Of Consciousness Itself.

 

The Perceptions, Conceptions, or Presumptions

Based On the points of view of body and mind

Could Not Even Be Made,

Were body and mind

Not Founded In Consciousness.

 

Therefore,

The Perception,

Conception, or

Presumption

Based On The “Point Of View” Of Consciousness Itself

Is,

Also,

The Foundation Of

The Divine Self-Realization

Of Reality

That Is

The Very Basis

and Context

Of

The Only-By-Me Revealed

and

Given Seventh Stage Of Life.

 

Two Realized to Be One

When the body-mind and the conditional worlds

Are Finally Self-Recognized

To Be Transparent,

and Un-Necessary,

and Inherently

Non-Binding

Modifications Of The Transcendental,

Inherently Spiritual,

Inherently egoless,

and Self-Evidently

Divine Self-Condition,

Then There Is Only

Me,

Only The “You”

That Is Not “Different”

From Me

As I Am,

Only One Self,

Only Real God,

Only Truth,

Only Reality,

Only inherently egoless and

Spiritually “Bright” Consciousness,

Only Divine Love-Bliss,

Only The Perfectly Subjective Feeling Of Being –

Only The One and

Only and Inherently

Indivisible and

Inherently egoless Conscious Light

That Is and

That Is Always Already.

 

From the point of view of the body-mind,

which is

The Presuming Of a position in space-time,

The Passage Of time and

The Movement Through space

Are Always Observed

From that point of view.

However,

 

In Truth

 

The Totality Of space-time Is Inclusive – and,

Therefore,

It Is Never Identified

With any particular position within space-time.

 

Therefore,

From The “Point Of View” Of The Totality Of conditional Existence,

There Is No space or time –

Because There Is No Separate position – (No ego)

From which To Move In space and time.

The Totality Of conditional Existence Is

Every Possibility Of space and time,

Existing Simultaneously In Total Mutual Dependence –

Without Any Characteristic Of Independence,

or Separateness,

or Relatedness,

or “Difference”,

and Without

Even Any Characteristic Of Particularity,

and Without Any Objective Characteristics.

 

The ego-“I” is,

Effectively,

Nothing More Than The Presumption

Of Identification

With a Particularized “point” in space-time,

Made By Contraction From

The Condition Of Totality.

 

Therefore, in The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

My True Devotee who Realizes

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life

Exists In

The Inherent

and Self-Evidently

Divine Self-Condition

That Is Prior To

space-time.

And,

Even If he

or she

Appears To Exist

 

as if in a dream…

 

In The Apparent

Context Of space-time,

Such A Devotee

Of Mine

Exists In space-time

From The “Point Of View”

Of The Totality Of space-time,

Rather Than

From the point of view

of the self-Contracted “point”,

or the ego,

or the particular,

Separate “point” in space-time.

 

Being and Non-Being

 

“Consider” This:

In this very moment,

Totality Exists.

It Cannot Be Otherwise.

And Totality

Is The Only “Point Of View”

In Which all particulars

Are Comprehended

In and As Reality.

This Must Be Understood

or Else

Reality Itself

Cannot Affect

the individual’s Understanding.

But,

If and When

There Is Such Understanding,

Reality Immediately

“Becomes”

The Principle In

and By Which

The Faculty of Understanding Functions.

Therefore,

To Understand Reality Is,

Tacitly,

To Know

From The Position Of Totality,

Rather Than Merely

To know

from the Separate point of view

in space and time.

And

To Understand Thus

Is To Enjoy Immediate,

Tacit Proof

Of The Existence Of Real God,

or Truth,

or Reality Itself –

Because

Real God,

or Truth,

or Reality

Is Both Totality and That Which Transcends

Both Totality and particularity.

The Totality Exists.

And,

Because

The Source-Condition

Of Totality Inherently and

 

Necessarily Transcends

Even Totality Itself,

 

That Which Transcends

Both Totality

and particularity

Exists.

 

And That Which Is

Both Totality and

Beyond Totality

Is Real God, or –

Truth,

or Reality.

And The Realization Of That

Is

Divine Samadhi, or

Most Perfect Divine Self-Realization, or

The Unqualified Realization Of What Is.

 

True Culture

A True Culture

Must Accommodate

and Tolerate

individuals in Each and All

Of The Stages Of Life,

but

It Also Must Not Fail

To Inform and Guide

The Culture Of Each

Of The Progressive Stages Of Life

With The Wisdom-Orientation

Of The Only-By-Me Revealed

and Given Seventh Stage Of Life.

 

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart, Each and Every Form Of Practice Is, Indeed, Uniquely Informed and Guided By The Wisdom Orientation Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life. Each and

 

Every Form Of Practice and Possible Developmental Stage Of Practice

 

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart, and Each and Every Stage Of Realization In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart, Develops In The Context Of One or More Of The Seven Stages Of Life – but The Orientation

 

Is Always, From The Earliest Awakening Of The Heart’s Great Urge,

 

To Realize The Inherent and Self-Radiant Self-Condition and Source-Condition That Is Transcendental Divine Being.

 

Sudden and Gradual Path

 

Therefore, in The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

There Is A Great Secret

Relative To The Matter Of Transition From One Developmental Stage Of Practice To The Next: The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is A Process That Is

Both Progressive and Instant.

 

The Process Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

Viewed In The Vertical Context Of the body-mind,

Is A Process That Must (Necessarily) Develop Progressively,

In The Form Of Various

Practices,

Processes, and

Signs

Which Are Associated, Variously, With The Seven Stages Of Life.

 

Nevertheless, The Process Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

Viewed In The Horizontal Context Of the body-mind

That is To Say,

In The Simple Context Of The Heart,

Upon Which All Extended activities, experiences, and Signs Are Built –

Inherently (or Always Already) Transcends The Events and Signs That Are Otherwise Associated With The Vertical Unfoldment Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart.

 

The Three Heart

The Heart Is The Primal Structure in the body-mind.

It Is Basically Made Of Three Parts-

Indicated By

The Left Side,

The Middle Station, and

The Right Side.

 

The Left Side Of The Heart Is The Base Of the waking state, bodily experience, The Descending Line Of the body-mind, and The Purposes Of The First Four Stages Of Life.

The Middle Station Of The Heart Is The Base Of the dreaming state, all that is the deeper psyche, The Ascending Line Of the body-mind, and The Purpose Of The Fifth Stage Of Life.

The Right Side Of The Heart Is The Base Of the state of deep sleep, and It Is The Base Of The Uninspected Presumption Of an individual Conscious self, and It Is The Base Of Amrita Nadi.

The Right Side Of The Heart Is Associated With The Ultimate Purpose Demonstrated In The Context Of The Horizontal Process and Structure Otherwise Characteristically Associated With The Sixth Stage Of Life.

The Right Side Of The Heart Is Both The Ultimate Root-Origin Of attention and The “Place” In The Total psycho-physical Structure Where The By-Me-Avatarically-Self-Transmitted Divine Spirit-Current Is Felt To Originate.

The Right Side Of The Heart Is The bodily Seat Associated With The Witness-Position Of Consciousness – Which Even Witnesses the conditional “I”, and Which Witnesses, Inspects, and Inherently Transcends the body-mind, the conditional states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping, and The Presumption Of an individual Conscious self.

Therefore, The Right Side Of The Heart Is Also The bodily Seat Associated With The Entire Spiritually “Bright” Process Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life – and

With The Awakening Of Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, and Divine Self-Realization, The “Regeneration” Of Amrita Nadi, and

The Continuous Spontaneous Demonstration Of “Open Eyes”, or The Perfectly Subjective Divine Self-Recognition Of the body-mind and all of its phenomenal relations.

 

In My By-Me-Spiritually-Activated human Devotee,

The Current Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spirit-Presence Moves

From The Right Side Of The Heart To

The Middle Station Of The Heart and

Then To The Left Side Of The Heart,

On The Free Foundation Of Consciousness Itself,

Associated With The Right Side Of The Heart.

 

Once The Current Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spirit-Presence

Moves In The Heart,

and attention arises In The Context Of the body-mind –

The Inherent Feeling Of Being, or

The Transcendental “Point Of View”,

Becomes limited by the body-mind-self, and

The “Point Of View” Of The Transcendental Origin

Tends To Be Forgotten.

Thereafter,

The Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Process

Naturally Becomes

A Progressive Course

That Realizes The By-Me-Avatarically Self-Revealed Original Divine Self-Condition and Source-Condition.

 

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

The Entire Process

In The Context Of

The First and The Second Stages Of The “Perfect Practice”

Relates To The Knot In The Right Side Of The Heart.

That Knot Is the “I” of attention,

Confined By the body-mind.

When The Root-Source Of attention itself is “Located”,

The By-Me-Avatarically-Self-Transmitted Divine Spirit-Current Is Relieved Of All Stress.

 

The ego-“I” Tends To Be Relinquished Only Gradually,

Through The Progressive Stages

Of The Developmental Process

Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and

Given Way Of The Heart.

Therefore, The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is Demonstrated

By A Progressive Developmental Course,

Until The By-My-Avataric-Divine-Spiritual Grace-Given Transition

To The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life.

 

My Avataric Divine Purpose

Is Not Only To Communicate Right Understanding Of the ego-“I”

In The Context Of The First Six Stages Of Life, and

The Practices and Signs Naturally Associated With Each Of The First Six Stages Of Life,

but To Introduce

The Most Ultimate Possibility Into That Entire Affair –

By Means Of My Avataric Divine Self-Revelation Of

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life.

 

Therefore, By Entering Into Relationship With all conditionally Manifested beings,

I Call each and all To

My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Baptism

and I Attract

each and all

To My Avatarically Self-Revealed State,

Which Is The Divine Source-Condition

Of The all-and-All Of Cosmically Existing

beings,

things, and

processes.

 

My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Baptism

Works At The Heart

Of My By-Me-Spiritually-Initiated Devotee.

My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Baptism –

Which Is The Free Heart-Transmission

Of My Avatarically

Self-Transmitted

Divine Spirit-Presence

Of Self-Radiant, and

Self-Existing, and

Self-Evidently Divine Being –

Constantly Works

To Awaken My Seeing Devotee

To The Inherent Self-Position.

 

My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Presence and

My Call To Inherent Realization Of My Avatarically Self-Revealed Self-Condition

Constantly Serve

To Awaken My Seeing Devotee Directly

To The Witness-Position Of Consciousness Itself, and

To The Inherently Perfect “Perfect Practice” Associated With The Right Side Of The Heart.

 

The Seven Stages Of Life Are The Single Process Of Life –

As A Total, and Ultimate, and Divine Event.

The Seven Stages Of Life Are

Designed and

Determined

By The Real Structure Of Man.

The Seven Stages Of Life Are

The Design Of The Potential Of Man

To Progressively Transcend conditional Existence, and

To Realize Me.

The Seven Stages Of Life Are

Determined

By The Real Structural Design

Of The Cosmic Domain, and

By The Exactly Corresponding

Real Structural Anatomy Of Man.

 

Thus, In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

In The Context Of The Progressive Course Of The Seven Stages Of Life,

the conditionally Manifested personality

Is Enabled

To Progressively Relinquish

its Bondage

To The gross,

subtle, and

causal Forms Of egoity –

Most Ultimately To The Inherently Most Perfect Degree.

 

In The Context Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

The First Six Stages Of Life Are Understood

To Be The Progressive Stages Of The Transcending Of psycho-physical egoity –

and The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life

Is Understood To Be The Stage Of Inherently Most Perfect Demonstration,

Wherein and Whereby

The Inherent, and

By-My-Avataric-Divine-Spiritual-Grace-Given,

Transcending of psycho-physical egoity

Is Demonstrated

To The Degree Of Inherently Most Perfect Self-Radiance.

 

Practice Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

In The Context Of The First Six Stages Of Life

Is A Continuous Process Of Transcending

The Act Of self-Contracted Identification

With conditional Modifications

Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spirit-Radiance.

 

Therefore, I Help

My Listening Devotee,

My Hearing Devotee, and

My Seeing Devotee

To Realize

That The First Six Stages Of Life

Are Merely Stages

Of Contraction

From Direct and

Immediate Realization Of Me,

The Avataric Divine Self-Revelation

Of The One and Only

and

inherently

indivisible and

inherently

egoless and Inherently Love-Blissful Conscious Light Itself.

 

As A Total Process, The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Can Be Rightly Viewed To Be

A “Radical” “Consideration”

Of the self-Contraction and

Of The Real Self-Condition and Source-Condition.

 

In Practice, The Only-By-Me Revealed and

Given Way Of The Heart

Develops Progressively,

Coincident With Progress

In The Context Of

Each Of The First Six Stages Of Life –

but,

In Truth,

The Only-By-Me Revealed and

Given Way Of The Heart

Is The “Radical” Way Of

Most Directly

Transcending

The First Six Stages Of Life

and Entering

Into

The Only-By-Me

Revealed

and Given

Seventh Stage Of Life.

 

In The Context Of The Vertical Process

Associated With Each and All Of The First Five Stages Of Life,

Your Presumption Is That You Are the body-mind-self,

and

That the body-mind-self is a Separate and

Independently Real individual entity.

And,

In The Context Of The Horizontal Process Associated With The Sixth Stage Of Life,

Your Presumption Is That You Are Separate and Independent.

 

The psycho-physical ego,

as it is In The Context Of The First Six Stages Of Life,

Must Be Really Transcended.

Each Of The Progressive Stages Of Life

Is A Test Of ego-Transcendence –

and Practice

Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

In The Context Of Each Of The First Six Stages Of Life

 

The Test

(The Way of the Heart) Is, Therefore,

To Be Directly Engaged

As A Test Of ego-Transcendence.

This Test Of ego-Transcendence

Begins At The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart –

and The Test Intensifies,

Stage By Stage,

Thereafter.

Therefore,

If There Is Weakness

In The Devotional Resort To Me,

or

If There Is Weakness In

The Practice Of Listening To Me,

or

If The Impulse

Toward Most Perfectly ego-Transcending Real-God-Realization

Is Not Fundamental and intense,

or

if There Is Weakness In The

Application Of self-Discipline,

or

If There Is Weakness In Hearing Me,

or

In Seeing Me,

or

If There Is Weakness In Any Form Of Practicing

Then Passage Through To The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Will Be

Retarded and Prolonged.

 

But

If The Devotional Resort To Me Is Strong, and If The Listening To Me Is True, and If The Impulse Toward Most Perfectly ego-Transcending Real-God-Realization Is Real, and If The self-Discipline Is Consistent and Effective, and If The Hearing Of Me, The Seeing Of Me, and The Totality Of The Advancing Practice Are All Strong

Then The Transition To The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Can Be A Readily Direct Process Of Free and Real Whole bodily Heart-Response To My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Grace and Person.

 

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart, The Process Of Listening To Me, and Then Hearing Me, and Then Seeing Me Prepares My Devotee For The “Perfect Practice” –

Because That Process Progressively Goes Beyond the point of view of the body-mind.

Indeed,

The Practice Of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti Yoga –

or The Surrendering Of The Four psycho-physical Faculties To Me –

Is Precisely This Process Of Progressively Going Beyond the point of view of the body-mind.

Through This Process Of Progressive Transcending,

You Are Able To Stand As Consciousness Itself –

Because You Are Established In The Position Prior To the body-mind.

That Stand Is The Entrance

To The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart.

 

In The Context Of The First Five Stages Of Life, As They Have Traditionally Been Practiced, The Entire Orientation Is That Of The “Great Path Of Return” –

Starting From The Outside and Attempting To Get To The Inside Depth,

or

Starting From the body-mind position and Attempting To Get To The Ultimate Position.

 

The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Cannot Be Established

Until

the point of view of the conditional persona Is Released and Gone Beyond.

 

The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is Established

When There Is No Longer

Any conditional Basis For Sadhana –

and,

Therefore,

Your Sadhana Moves “From The Inside Out”.

 

In Other Words,

In Order For The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart To Be Truly Engaged,

the point of view Of The “Great Path Of Return”

Must Be Gone Beyond.

All The Forms Of The Search

The Descending and Ascending Paths,

As Well As The Path Of “Going Within” Are forms of attention.

And attention Is Precisely What Must Be Transcended,

In Order To Enter Into The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart.

 

In Order For My Devotee’s Practice Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

To Be Inherently Perfect,

Reality Must Be The “Point Of View” –

Rather Than

the psycho-physical ego.

Therefore, The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Begins Prior To the body-mind –

When the “Outside-Going Inward” point of view Is Relinquished,

and

The “Point Of View” Becomes “Inside-Moving-Outward”.

 

In The Developmental Stages Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Previous To The “Perfect Practice”, The Practice Of Ruchira Avatara Bhakti Yoga

Delivers The Four Faculties Of the body-mind To Me.

But

The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is

Not A Matter Of Directing The Four psychophysical Faculties

 

Because

 

The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is

 

An All-psycho-physical-Faculties-Already-Perfectly-Attuned-To-Me Process

 

That Is Transcendentally and Spiritually Activated By Me

Prior

To The psycho-physical Faculties Themselves.

 

The First Six Stages Of Life Depend On The Faculties Of the body-mind.

Thus,

The First Six Stages Of Life Are Based In

the gross, subtle, and causal points of view –

and The First Six Stages Of Life Are Exercises Of

The gross, subtle, or causal Dimensions Of conditional Existence,

In The Effort To Seek For What Is Beyond conditionality.

 

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-ByMe Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is Not A Sixth Stage Practice –

 

Because

 

It Begins

Prior To the body-mind.

 

I Am here To Offer You Most Perfect Divine Liberation From all conditional points of view -gross, subtle, and causal.

Going Beyond gross, subtle, and causal points of view

Is The Necessary Foundation

For The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart –

Which “Perfect Practice” Is Uniquely My Revelation and Gift.

 

The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is To Be Engaged

Only On The Basis

Of The Necessary Fulfillment

Of All The Prerequisite Stages Of Formal Practice

Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

That Must Be The Case

Before Real and Fruitful Practice

Of The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is Possible.

Therefore,

The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-ByMe Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is To Be Embraced

Only

On The Basis Of Real Hearing Of Me,

True Seeing Of Me, and

Right, True, and Full Devotional and Spiritual and Transcendental Awakening,

and

Only

With The Formal Approval

Of The Ruchira Sannyasin Order Of Adidam Ruchiradam.

 

The First Three Stages Of Life Are Simply Stages Of ordinary human Development. Relative To The First Three Stages Of Life,

The Great Obligation Is To Overcome Un-Happy and ego-Reinforcing Tendencies That Prevent The Transition To The Fourth Stage Of Life.

 

Therefore,

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart,

It Becomes The Obligation Of the physically adult human individual

To Thoroughly Observe and Understand and Really and Effectively Transcend The First Three Stages Of egoity.

 

The Fourth, The Fifth, and The Sixth Stages Of Life

Are Each Associated With A Specific Potential Error.

And If The Specific Error Is Transcended,

Then Passage Through The Process Associated With That Particular Stage Of Life Can Be Quickened.

 

The Fourth Stage Error Is The Tendency To Prolong The First Three Stages Of Life and To Make The Fourth Stage Of Life An End In Itself.

This Tendency Takes The Form Of A Fixed Idea Of The Divine and A Fixed Idea Of the personal self. On The Basis Of This Tendency, The Fourth Stage Of Life Is Made Into A Never-Ending Search For The Divine and A Never-Ending Appeal To The Divine For Intimacy, Relief, and self-Satisfaction.

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart, The Fourth Stage Error Is Transcended By Means Of The Process Of The True Hearing Of Me, The Real Seeing Of Me, and The Right Practicing Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart. By Means Of The Effective Listening To Me, and By Means Of The True Hearing Of Me, the self-Contraction Must Be Transcended. Through The True Seeing Of Me, The Real Condition Of Non-Separateness Is Realized Directly. And That Real Condition Is Immediately Realized As The Inherent Condition Of Reality Itself-Such That The “Perfect Practice”, Rather Than The Search For The Divine, May Be Established.

 

The Fifth Stage Error Is The Tendency To Seek subtle phenomenal objects and states, As If subtle phenomenal objects and subtle phenomenal states Are The Sufficient or Ultimate or Perfect Realization Of Real God, Truth, Reality, or Happiness. This Error Is Transcended When There Is Real and Stable Awakening To The Inherent Witness-Position Of Consciousness.

 

The Sixth Stage Error Is The Tendency To Hold On To The Position Of Consciousness As A Reality Inherently Separate From Apparently Objectified Light and all conditional objects. It Is The Tendency To Hold On To The Inherent Love-Bliss Of Consciousness By Strategically Excluding All Awareness Of conditional objects and states.

The Sixth Stage Error Is Based On Attachment To The Position Of Consciousness As The Detached Witness Of conditional events – Whereas, In Truth, Consciousness Is Ultimately and Inherently and Always Already That In, Of, and As Whom conditions or objects arise.

The Sixth Stage Error May Eventually Take The Form Of conditionally Self-Abiding Jnana Samadhi, Which Is A Temporary State Of Transcendental Awakeness That Is Also Inherently Associated With An Accompanying Effort That Excludes all conditional objects and states. In Any Case, The Rightly Understood and Rightly Engaged Process Of The “Perfect Practice” Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Will Transcend The Sixth Stage Error. And That Transcending Is Demonstrated In Seventh Stage Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi, In Which conditional objects and states Are Freely Allowed To arise and Even To Be Noticed, and in Which conditional objects and states Are Inherently Divinely Self-Recognized As Transparent, and Un-Necessary, and Inherently Non-Binding Modifications Of Perfectly Subjective Consciousness Itself.

 

Therefore, In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart, The Transition To The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life Is Freely Given By Means Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Grace.

And That Transition

Is Readily and Directly Realized,

If

The egoic Effort To Separate From conditional Existence Is Whole-Heartedly Released

In

Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, Inherently egoless, Inherently Perfect, and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Consciousness.

 

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

 

Is Not An “Evolutionary” Call

 

To Progressively Fulfill The Stages Of Life.

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is

 

A “Radical” Call

 

To Progressively Transcend The First Six Stages Of Life – and,

Ultimately, To Most Perfectly Embrace The Already Divinely Enlightened Stage Of Life.

 

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given

Way Of The Heart

Is A Call

To Understand and

Utterly Transcend

the self-Contraction.

 

Therefore, The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is A Call

To Pass

The Test

Of Each and Every Stage Of Life.

And

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is A Call

To Most Directly Transcend

The Progressive Stages Of Life.

 

 

A Call of The Binding First Three Stages of Life

Therefore, The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is A Call

To Quicken

Progressive Practice

By Directly Transcending

the Binding limitations

Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life

and

 

A Call of The Errors of The Higher Stages of Life

The Fundamental Errors That Are Characteristically Associated With The Fourth Stage, The Fifth Stage, and The Sixth Stage Of Life.

 

Before You Are My “Perfect Practice” Devotee,

You Presume That You Have To Be Established In a particular position –

a position that Allows You To Observe whatever conditions are arising, and

To Hold On To whatever conditions Seem To Be Desirable, and

To Be Held By whatever conditions Seem To Support Your Existence,

Whether those conditions are gross

Or subtle or causal.

Thus,

Before You Are My “Perfect Practice” Devotee,

You Are Afraid To Fully Feel,

Afraid To Fully Release Your Consciousness

To Infinity –

Because To Feel Thus,

and

To Release Your Consciousness Thus, Means That

You Will Lose Your “point” in space.

Indeed, You Are Going To Lose Your life –

That Is Exactly True.

Therefore,

It Is Only When The Undying Happiness Of

Heart-Communion With Me,

At Infinity,

Becomes Obvious

To You

That You Will Permit

The Dissolution Of the ego-“I”

To Become Perfect.

 

The Real Spiritual Process In My Avataric Divine Company Does,

In Due Course,

Require

The Dissolution Of everything conditional –

The Dissolution Of body,

Of all personal energy,

all forms,

all worlds,

all that is mind,

all concepts,

and

Even attention itself.

Infinity Must Become Your Pleasure.

 

Then this world Becomes A Truly Humorous Display

and

A Genuinely Livable Circumstance.

Then You Can Make this world into A Sacred Domain –

Of Unlimited Heart-Communion With Me.

 

Therefore,

When You Are My “Perfect Practice” Devotee,

Relinquish The Hold On the body.

Relinquish All Identification

With its conditions and

states.

Relinquish

The Search

For bodily and psychic self-Fulfillment

in the field of conditional relations.

By Means

Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Spiritual Grace,

Realize The Condition Of Heart-Identification With Me, and,

Thus,

Progressively and Effectively

Let Go Of all conditions,

Until The Final Degree Of Outshining.

 

My Call

Is Always A “Radical” Call

To Most Directly ego-Surrendering,

ego-Forgetting, and

ego-Transcending

Satsang With Me –

To The Degree,

Most Ultimately,

Of Inherently Most Perfect Realization of

The Ultimate and Inherently

Perfect and Inherently

ego-Transcending “Perfect Practice” Of

The Only-By-Me Revealed and

Given Way Of The Heart. And,

Even Though The Tendency Of the body-mind

Is To Progress,

Even Slowly,

Through The Stages Of Life,

The Process Can Be Quickened and

Inherently Most Perfectly Fulfilled,

If the self-Contraction

Is Understood and Persistently Transcended

In The Most Intensive Practice

Of Always Present

Whole bodily Devotional and Spiritual Heart-Communion With Me.

The Graceful Avataric Divine Means

I Give To All Practitioners

Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Are Not Merely Matters Of philosophy, or

Of Spiritual “technique”, or

Of ego-Based Seeking-Effort.

I Give Myself To You.

I Am The Means. And

I Give Myself To You As Various Means –

Such That Your Realization Of Me

Is Served In A Uniquely Appropriate Manner

At Each Developmental Stage Of Practice

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart.

 

 

As My Devotee,

You Must Undergo A Process Of Growth –

In Which You Assume Responsibility,

At Each Successive Developmental Stage Of Practice In The Way Of The Heart,

For All The By-Me-Given Practices Necessary and Appropriate For That Stage.

Nevertheless,

The Principal Practice and Process

In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

Is Always Simply Your

Reception and Embrace

Of The Graceful Avataric Divine Means That I Am.

I Always Give Myself –

Both As Consciousness Itself and

As The Spiritual Self-Radiance Of Consciousness Itself.

 

 

I Always Give Myself As The “Bright” The One and Only and Inherently Indivisible and Inherently egoless and Self-Evidently Divine Conscious Light That Is Reality Itself.

Therefore,

The Awakening To The Ultimate Process Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Requires

Not Only The “Conscious Process”, but

Also A Unique Process Of Spirit-“Conductivity”.

Thus, By Means Of The Current Of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Spiritual Divine Presence, I Spiritually Draw You To Myself.

In This Manner, I Attract You

Into The Domain Of The Right Side Of The Heart, and

Beyond The causal Knot In The Right Side Of The Heart, and

Not Only Into but Also

Beyond The Witnessing Function Of Consciousness, and

To The Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Domain That Is Consciousness Itself, and

That Is The Source-Condition Of The Apparent Witnessing Function.

 

The “Perfect-Practice”-Process Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is Such That You Are Profoundly Moved, By Me, Into The Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Domain Of Consciousness Itself.

Indeed,

The Fundamental Process In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart Is My Spiritual Drawing Of You Into The Right Side Of The Heart –

Rather Than Any Process That Is Otherwise Purposed To Establish any of the experiential phenomena that May Occur In The Circle Of the body-mind.

Among The Signs Associated With The Stable Awakening Of Inherent Identification With The Witness-Position Of Consciousness,

There Will Be

The Feeling-Awareness

That The

By-Me-Avatarically-Self-Transmitted Divine

Spirit-Current Is

Undermining the act of attention

By Radiating In The Right Side Of The Heart.

Until Most Perfect Divine Self-Realization –

Which Is Awakened In

The Inherently Most Perfect Fulfillment Of The Yoga Of

The “Conscious Process” and

Spirit-“Conductivity” –

attention and

The By-Me Avatarically-Self-Transmitted

Divine Spirit-Current

Will Constantly Tend To

Move Out and Away

From The Well Of Being.

However,

After Most Perfect Divine Self-Awakening,

The Realization Of My Transcendental,

Inherently Spiritual,

Inherently egoless, and

Self-Evidently Divine Self-Position

Is Never Lost or

Abandoned For Any Reason –

Even Though

The By-Me-Avatarically-Self-Transmitted

Divine Spirit-Current

Is Modified

in The Form

Of conditional objects, and

Even Though Consciousness Apparently knows them.

In The Transition

From Practice

Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

In The Context Of

The First Actually Seeing Stage

To Practice Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and

Given Way Of The Heart

in The Context Of The “Perfect Practice”,

All Seeking Falls and

Dissolves Upon Me

The Heart-Deep Of Eternally Unmoved Consciousness,

The Always Already Free Witness

Of the self-Contracted “I” of the body-mind,

The Formless and Soundless Unfathomable Well Of Being

That Merely Reflects

all Apparent conditional experience,

all Apparent conditional knowledge, and

All Apparent Illusions or

Events Of limitation.

May every one who Listens To Me and

Hears Me and

Sees Me

Practice

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart

To This Inherently Perfect Degree.

I Am The Avatarically Self-Revealed

Divine Secret

Of This Perfect Suddenness

Of Being.
