“You can’t read and understand the Aletheon without reading and studying the Aletheon” Beezone*
Beezone Study of the Aletheon
Note to reader. The ‘White and Orange Books” project is based on Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Blue and Brown books. The Blue & Brown Books of Wittgenstein’s were dictated as a set of notes to his student in 1934-1935. I have been collecting materials from Adi Da that I find would be suitable for the same format.

Excerpts taken – some edited, some adapted (in parenthesis) and others translated.
This starts from the beginning of the book.
GOD AS THE CREATOR, GOD AS GOOD, AND GOD AS THE REAL
Conventional “God-religion” originates in the state of mind that characterizes the first three stages of life.
Conventional “God-religion” is ego-based—and it serves the functional desire of the egoic “self” to be protected, nourished, pleasurized, and (ultimately) preserved.
…as well as all of the other ordinary and extraordinary pursuits of born existence in the first six stages of life.
Spiritual life begins only when the ego is thoroughly understood and transcended.
No conditionally apparent thing or being or process is ultimately preserved—nor, by contrast, is there any absolute destruction. Cosmic Nature is a transformer—not merely a “creator” or a “destroyer”.
When ego or the self-contraction is understood the “world” is no longer conceived as a drama of warfare between “Good” and “Evil”.
The ultimate moment in the ‘play’ of conditional Nature is beyond contradictions.
Cosmic Nature is Revealed only equanimity, beyond all stress and bondage of energy and attention.
The disposition of equanimity provides the functional base for the ultimate and final investigation of the ego and the dynamics of conditional Nature.
It is only-by-Me that fundamental equanimity Is Inherent and Constant, expressing Prior Divine Self-Realization.
This is not a means, it is a Transcendence of separation
TACIT CERTAINTY OF REAL GOD
God is not the ‘first cause’ or creator.
Real God is That Power of egoless Being Which is Vast, Infinite, and Beyond Comprehension – Self-Evidently So.
The Heart must be kept alive moment to moment, to excercise Real Intelligence.
the concern of conventional “religious” institutions and processes is not Real-God-Realization but social, political, and cultural order.
you cannot hold God accountable for what you are doing, or for how “things” are happening, or for all your trouble here.
no “thing” or “event” is “caused” by Real God.
You yourself are making the “events” of your life.
THE CULTURALLY PRESCRIBED GOD-IDEA OF EXOTERIC RELIGION IS NOT THE DIVINE ITSELF BUT ONLY A CULTURAL (AND ENTIRELY CONDITIONAL) MEANS FOR TURNING TO THE DIVINE
The Hindu cultural tradition is that whatever “Chosen Form” a person may worship is the construct through which he or she is moved to turn to the One Divine Absolute.
This understanding of the nature of exoteric “religious” worship is correct.
All the various modes of exoteric “religion” should be understood to be varietal forms of devotion to a “Chosen Form” of the Divine—or to a particular culturally prescribed Divine image, idea, and mythology.
Westerners often (mistakenly) presume Hinduism to be a form of polytheism.
The potential problem is that any such tradition tends not to understand that its particular focus of worship is simply one among many possible “Chosen Forms”.
Thus, any such tradition may tend to presume that it is the tradition—the one and only true and right tradition.
Such is the origin of fundamentalism.
The result is idolatry.
The ‘sin’ of idolatry is any and every act of replacing the Divine Itself with the constructs of approach to the Divine.
THE NECESSITY FOR A GLOBAL UNITY-CULTURE TO REPLACE THE ANCIENT BI-POLAR CULTURE OF SEPARATE WEST AND SEPARATE EAST
What can be seen in the outward conflicts on Earth today are essentially the artifacts of the two halves of humankind, the East and the West.
Humankind is no longer of either the West or the East. Rather, now, and forever hereafter, humankind is a global construct of all.
If you are truly moved you have no choice but to completely inspect your condition of existence.
That ordeal is the necessity inherent in the confusion of Western-Eastern mind-brain that is the result of the “modernization” .
You must become able to differentiate all your motivations that reflect archaic conventional (inherently bi-polar) concepts, persuasions, and philosophies. – East and West.
You have casually inherited your presumed Western or Eastern mind, without ever having been a very profound student of it.
Therefore, in order to serve the course of the ego-transcending and “difference”-transcending investigation that is necessary for all of humankind, I have made this book, and many other books, wherein and whereby I present a comprehensive system of unique tools, that will, if rightly and consistently used, enable that investigation to be truly effective and successful.
EXOTERIC AND ESOTERIC: THE PUBLIC AND THE SECRET DIMENSIONS OF RELIGION
The dominant “religions” of the present-time are, fundamentally, exoteric traditions that exist in order to serve social purposes.
In contrast to exoteric “religions”, esoteric “religions” have not been communicated to the public masses. That is why they are called “esoteric”—their teachings were supposed to be kept secret, and reserved for the few who were truly prepared to understand and rightly practice them.
THE WISDOM OF ESOTERICISM
Exoteric “religion” is always an emergence of institutionalized social and political ideology from a base of esoteric Spiritual and philosophical and ascetical Revelations, traditions, and practices.
Therefore, the authentic Wisdom of humankind is in the transferring of human endeavor from the exoteric domain to the esoteric domain.
THE CRITICISM THAT CURES THE HEART
People think “religion” is about themselves, whereas right “religious” practice is supposed to be about the Divine.
Right “religious” practice is, ultimately, about discovering Oneness with the Divine Condition.
In this “late-time”, “religion” has been reduced to being nothing but a reflection of humankind. The “talkers” of “religion” are constantly making pronouncements about matters of a social and political nature—matters that are essentially about humankind, and of a gross nature.
The first six stages of life are entirely about human beings.
That “straight-on” assessment of the Great Tradition is fundamental to what I have Revealed.
“Religion” is not the only dimension of human life that is being misused. All aspects of human possibility are being misused—in exactly the same manner.
Reality Itself cannot be disproven—nor can Reality Itself be proven. Reality Itself is Intrinsically and tacitly Self-Evident.
Science is not in a position to make absolute affirmations.
“Religion”, as an “objective” phenomenon, is a collection of ideas and doctrines that cannot—and should not—be absolutely affirmed.
