Fundamentally, all I Call My devotees to do is the inner and outer discipline of turning to Me. Anyone can do that discipline. I can put My Communication about that discipline into elaborate speech-but, fundamentally, that discipline is simply about turning to Me, as an inner-and-outer response to Me, and doing so constantly.

Fundamentally, the inner and outer discipline of turning to Me is all the Teaching I have Given-except for all My Words. But I do not need to Say a word about that fundamental Teaching. I could just be here As I Am, and such turning to Me is what would be done by those who devotionally recognize Me. My fundamental Teaching is Unspoken. What does My Teaching amount to, as a practice to be engaged? It is the inner-and-outer turning to Me-such that your inner process is the turning of every faculty of the body-mind-“self” to Me, and your outer action is service to Me, or attending to Me. Essentially, to practice devotion to Me is to constantly turn to Me-whole bodily.

Fundamentally, the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam is a tacit (or wordless) matter. The Reality-Way of Adidam is inevitably practiced by someone who devotionally recognizes Me-just as the Way of devotion to the Spiritual Master has been practiced in spontaneous response to the Spiritual Master since the most ancient of pre-historical days. If you are disenchanted with the “world” (and not merely governed in your attention by its possibilities), you are (thereby) open to noticing My Primal Divine State and capable of surrender into the Inherent Attractiveness of My Primal Divine State. My true devotees notice Me exactly As That Primal Divine State. If you are not merely bound in your attention by your own ego-patterning, you can notice Me and become My devotee. Simply to see a photograph of My Bodily Form should be enough. To “Know” Me Is “Perfect Knowledge” of Reality Itself.

The devotional relationship to Me is not about the words. The words are important, and have their significance-but their significance is only in the context of the active practice of devotion to Me. The practice I have Given you is about noticing Me here, having your attention move to Me, and being devotionally Attracted to Me-Beyond all words. The practice of Adidam is not about listening to Me talk all the time-as if there were something I must yet say in order to convince people to be devotees of Mine. Indeed, there is nothing that I can say to make people devotees of Mine. People will become My devotees only if they notice Me and are (thereby) moved to Me. That is it.

A hermitage is a place where people go who are attracted by a Spiritual Master. Perhaps they hear about the Spiritual Master from others, and then they go to see the Spiritual Master. That is typical in the traditional setting. A hermitage might not necessarily be readily accessible to people. In fact, in the traditional setting, a hermitage would typically be remote. The more remote a hermitage is, the fewer the people that would go there.

If human beings would cultivate the free energy and attention to recognize a true Realizer, and (thus, merely by Sighting Me) be turned to Me, I could simply be silently retired in My Chosen Place, and countless people would constantly come to Me from everywhere, based entirely on their tacit and simple devotional recognition of Me. Indeed, all of that is the only form of true devotional recognition-response to Me. Therefore, having spent many decades wandering in the “world”, Speaking and Acting in every manner, in order to set energy and attention free in humankind-I now (and forever hereafter) Wait in My Free Place, for true devotees to recognize Me, and respond to Me, and come to Me.
