Chapter 16

There Are Seven Possible Stages In That Ordeal Of The
Heart

The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of Transcendence Of the
self-Contraction, or More and More Perfect Inherence In The
Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Condition Of Divine Being. It
Is The Way Of Devotion Of the conditional self, Rather Than
Any ego-Based Search For self-Fulfillment and
self-Release.

The Way Of The Heart Is Not A Strategic and
self-Concerned Path Of self-Development. The Way Of The
Heart Is The Way Of Inherent and Heart-Responsive Devotion
To The By Me Revealed Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine
Reality.

Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Is A self-Transcending
Ordeal That Matures In The Context Of Each Of The First Six
Stages Of Life. The Full Maturity Of That Ordeal Is
Demonstrated In The Ultimate Context Of The Seventh Stage Of
Life. And The Total Ordeal Of The Heart Evolves Through A
Process Of Progressive Acknowledgement and Realization Of
Me, and Eventual and Progressive Acknowledgement and
Realization Of The Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine
Forms Of God, Truth, or Reality.

The First Great Ordeal Of The Way Of The Heart Is The
Progressive Process Of Listening and Hearing. That Ordeal Is
Based On Progressive Acknowledgement and Realization Of Me,
Through “Consideration” Of My Word and My Leelas, and
Through Feeling-Contemplation Of, Especially, My Bodily
Human Form.

Thus, Through Effective Practice Of The Way Of The Heart
In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life, There Is
Gradual and Inevitable Release Of The Stress Of egoity In
The Context Of the frontal personality and The Binding
Patterns Associated With The Earliest Stages Of human
Adaptation and Development. This Process Begins With
Listening, and It Advances Toward The Realization Of
Hearing.

Each Of The Stages Of Life Is Associated With A Unique
Form Of human Adaptation and Growth. And Each Form Of
Adaptation Is Associated With a specific human organ.

The First Three Stages Of Life Occur Within The Context
Of the lower organ functions Of human Adaptation, and, In
That Context, human Development Is Associated With
individuation, socialization, and integration Of The
psycho-physical Patterns Of the frontal personality.

The First Stage Of Life Is The Process Of psycho-physical
individuation, Based On Identification With the Separate and
personal gross physical body in the waking state. The First
Stage Of Life Is Also Associated With the oral function. At
birth, the infant Is Separated From The Situation Of Unity
With the human mother, and This Begins A Struggle With The
Fact Of individual Existence. This Struggle Is Displayed In
The Context Of oral Dependence On the mother as a Separate
body. Whatever Occurs In The Drama Of breast-feeding and The
Transition To food sources apart from the mothers body,
human beings Tend To Develop A Fundamental Reactive Habit At
This Stage.

Un-Happy individuation Tends To Be Associated With A
Feeling Of Separation and, Thus, Only A Partial Willingness
To Relinquish The Feeling Of Dependency On the mother. This
Feeling Of Separation Ultimately Involves The Sense Of
Disconnection From The Ultimate Source Of Support and Love,
and It Also Becomes A General Doubt or Anxiety About other
human beings On whom one Depends For Love.
Sex-Differentiation Begins Even At This Stage, but all
relationships are experienced from the viewpoint Of
Dependency and Reluctance To Accept The Situation Of
individuated Existence.

The Second Stage Of Life Is The Process Of socialization,
Based On The Development Of emotional Sensitivity To the
psycho-physical self To others, and To the Natural world.
The Second Stage Of Life Is Also Associated with the anal
function and The Conflict Between Privacy and The Search For
social Visibility.

The anal function Begins To Develop Coincident With the
oral function, but socialization itself Truly Begins Only
After The Basic Struggle With individuation Has Reached A
Workable Settlement.

Character Motivations That Are Rooted In the biology and
psychology Of sex-Differentiation Are, In The Second Stage
Of Life, Extended and Developed In An Expanded social
Context, and individuation, Rather Than Ambiguously
Differentiated Dependency, Becomes A Catalyst Toward social
Exploration.

When individuation Has Become A Workable egoic
Settlement, the individual Begins To Struggle, As an
individual, With relationships. The Second Stage individual
Tends To Continue To function In The Context Of Dependency,
but with A More Fully Developed Sense Of Separate self,
Independence, and Mobility. Likewise, There Is A Gradual
Discovery That There Are many kinds of relationships, and
all of them Carry A Test, A Demand, and An Obstacle That
Offends The Want To Be Dependent. The anal Phase Of
Development Represents An Early Stage Of self-Awareness, In
Which the individuals self-Esteem Is Apparently At Stake.
Thus, Doubt Of the ego-self and Doubt Of The Love In others
Appears. And So, The Second Stage Of Life Tends To Develop
Only To The Degree Of A Tentative Resolution Of the
relational and social character. Whereas The Feeling Of
Separation Characterizes The First Stage Reaction, The
Feeling Of Being Rejected Characterizes The Second Stage
Reaction.

The Third Stage Of Life Is The Process Of integration Of
The psycho-physical Patterns Of the frontal personality, By
Means Of The Development and Application Of the functions of
mind, discriminative intelligence, and the will. And This
Process Is Also Associated With The genital Phase Of human
Development. Genital Development and sex-Differentiation
Begin Even In infancy, and The emotional Trial Of The Second
Stage Of Life Relates To the sexually Defined character, but
The Great Struggle Of integration and self-Presentation
Takes Place Only After puberty.

The Third Stage Of Life Tends To Be Wasted By Indulgence
In Patterns That May Be Called adolescent. That Is To Say,
The Third Stage Of Life Does Not Tend Toward Full
Resolution, Because The First Two Stages Of Life Tend To Be
Unresolved. As A Result, The Third Stage Of Life Becomes A
Fruitless Drama Of Conflict Between Two Alternating and
Contrary Impulses, The One Toward infantile and childish
Dependence, and The Other Toward willful and Rebellious
Independence. The Life-Process Is Disturbed By This Un-Happy
and Irresponsible Drama, and the mental faculties and the
integrating function of the will Are Thus Impaired or
Retarded In their Ability To Develop the True adult
character, which character Is Characterized By Basic human
Equanimity, Discriminative Intelligence, Responsive
Heart-Feeling, and The Active Impulse To Always Continue To
Grow.

I Have Equipped The Progressive Culture Of Practitioners
Of The Way Of The Heart with Wisdom and Means Relative To
Every Stage Of Life. Therefore, The Responsive Community Of
Formally Acknowledged Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart
Is Empowered To Serve The Right, True, and Free Development
Of children and young persons In The First Three Stages Of
Life.

In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life,
children and young people Should Be Helped To Adapt To The
Requirements Of Growth In Those Stages, but In Such A Manner
That The egoic Tendencies Do Not Inhibit and Retard That
Growth Through The Introduction Of infantile, childish, and
adolescent Patterns Of Un-Happiness. To This End, The
Responsive Community Of True Practitioners Of The Way Of The
Heart Must Apply All Its By Me Given Wisdom Relative To The
Development Of children and young persons In The Context Of
The First Three Stages Of Life. And Part Of That Wisdom Is
The Consistent Cultural Introduction Of The By Me Given
Rudimentary Propositions and Practices Associated With The
Fourth Stage Of Life.

Therefore, I Have Provided Extensive Guidance For Truly
human Growth In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of
Life. In My Work With children, young people, and adults, I
Have Developed A Wisdom-Culture For The First Three Stages
Of Life That Includes The physical, psychological, and
social Processes Of individuation, socialization, and
integration. That Wisdom-Culture Also Goes Beyond the limits
Of These Obligatory early-life Processes By Founding Them In
The True Religion Of Real Truth. That True Religion Only
Serves and Does Not Retard Freedom, Responsibility, and
Growth. That Culture Of Devotion To Truth Really Serves
self-Discipline, self-Transcendence, The Vision Of Unity,
and The Realization Of Freedom Through God-Sensitive Prayer
and Meditation. And That Culture Of Devotion To Truth
Rightly and Progressively Includes Exercises To Develop
emotional and physical Sensitivity To and Responsibility For
The Universal Field Of Natural etheric energy Associated
with the body-mind, Practices To Develop emotional and
physical Sensitivity To and Responsibility For The etheric
energy-Connection Between psycho-physically living beings,
and Disciplines To Develop Sensitivity To and Responsibility
For the deep psychic aspect of mind.

Without The humanizing Benefits Of Real Love In The
Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life, and Without The
Inspiring Benefits Of True Spiritual, Transcendental, and
Divine Culture In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of
Life, human beings Inevitably Tend To Develop Un-Happy
Patterns In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life.
Such Failures Of Love, Wisdom, and Happiness Define human
Existence subhumanly and limit human Existence To the egoic
model and destiny. Therefore, Relatively few adults Advance
To The Fourth Stage Of Life In the most common world Of
Mankind, For the most common world Of Mankind Tends To Be
limited to and by the egoic society Of The First Three
Stages Of Life. And Religion In the most common world Of
Mankind Is Likewise Defined and limited By The conceptual
and egoic Tendencies Of The First Three Stages Of Life.

Because Of All Of This, and In Order To Love and Serve
The Ultimate Person Of Love, My Seeing Devotees Must
Responsively Serve and Responsibly Perpetuate The Effective
Wisdom-Culture Of early-life Practice Of The Way Of The
Heart That I Have Given and Established. That practical and
Devotional Wisdom-Culture Must Always Responsively and
Responsibly Incorporate All Aspects Of My “Considered”
Teaching and Instruction Relative To The Practice Of The Way
Of The Heart In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of
Life. Therefore, That Wisdom-Culture Must Always Take Into
Account The Truly human functional, practical, and
relational Requirements Of The First Three Stages Of Life,
The Truth and The Callings and Requirements Of The Advanced
Stages Of Life, and The Basic Wisdom Relative To The
Obligation Of self-Transcendence. And Practice Of The Way Of
The Heart In That Wisdom-Culture Of Listening Must Always Be
Based Upon The Rightly Instructed and Rightly Practiced
Beginners Devotional Relationship To Me, Just As All adult
Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Are Called To Rightly
and Truly Practice Right and True Devotional Relationship To
Me.

Even Though they May Grow Up Under The Auspicious
Circumstances Of The True Wisdom-Culture Of The Way Of The
Heart, young individuals Must Yet Grow To Understand
themselves As adults. If they Are, As adults, To Continue To
Practice The Way Of The Heart, they Must, As adults, Respond
To Me From The Heart, and they Must, As adults, Choose The
Way Of The Heart. Therefore, When they Achieve adult age,
all those who Have Rightly Devotional and self-Disciplined
Relationship To Me As The True Heart-Master Of The Heart,
Must Continue The Ordeal Of The Listening Devotee, and they
Must Continue In That Listening Discipline Until they Have
Truly and Fully Grown Beyond the limits Of The First Three
Stages Of Life.

Many Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Come To Me At
an Already adult age, and Only After infancy, childhood, and
adolescence in the common world. Such Practitioners Come To
Me Suffering Even Most Acutely From The egoic Complications
Of The First Three Stages Of Life. Nevertheless, The Way Of
The Heart Is The Same For all. Therefore, For Both The adult
Practitioner who Has Achieved adult age In the common world
and The adult Practitioner who Has Grown Up In The Way Of
The Heart, The Earliest Stage Of adult Practice Of The Way
Of The Heart Involves The Listening Process Associated With
Feeling-attention To Me In My Function As Heart-Teacher.

At The Beginning, The adult Practitioner Of The Way Of
The Heart Feels My Sign, Listens To My Confessions, and My
Arguments, and My Questions, Regards The Leelas Of My Play
Of Work, and Thoroughly Observes The Patterns Of his or her
personal Un-Happiness. By These Means, My Listening Devotee
Is Awakened To True self-Understanding. Once It Awakens, The
Continued Effective Expression Of True self-Understanding Is
The Real and Certain Process Whereby early-life Un-Happiness
Is Transcended. And Such Transcendence Is The Regeneration
Of The Free and Growing Movement Toward Completion Of The
human Work Of individuation, socialization, and integration.
Therefore, self-Observation, self-Understanding, and
self-Transcending human Growth Are The Work Of The Listening
and Hearing Stages Of The Way Of The Heart.

The Work Of The Listening Stages Of The Way Of The Heart
Cannot Become Complete Until I Am Heard. And The Original
Work Based On Hearing Itself In The Way Of The Heart Is Not
Complete Until ordinary human Un-Happiness Is Replaced By
Basic, Real, and Truly human Equanimity.

Only If The Impulse Toward Perfectly self-Transcending
God-Realization Is Very Fully Awakened, and Only If The
Process Of Thorough self-Observation, and The Reality Of
Most Fundamental self-Understanding, and The Restoration Of
Basic human Equanimity Are All Established, Can the
individual Continue To Grow By Entering Into The “Basic”
Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life. Therefore, By Listening
and By Hearing, Grow Again, and Grow Beyond the
self-Retarded limits Of The First Three Stages Of Life.

For My Truly Seeing Devotee, Listening Has Become
Hearing, and Hearing Has Become Seeing. And When Hearing Has
Become Most Directly self-Transcending Devotional Communion
with Me, and When I Am Truly Seen By Means Of Such Directly
self-Transcending Devotional Communion, The Process Of
Hearing and Seeing Continues To Develop Further In The
Devotional and Spiritual Context Of The Fully Established
“Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life.

When The Listening-Process Of The Way Of The Heart Is
Complete, and, Thus, When the conditional self Is Understood
Most Fundamentally, and When My Hearing Devotee Can Feel
Beyond the self-Contraction, and When My Hearing Devotee Has
Thereby Transcended the Basic limits Associated With The
First Three Stages Of Life, and When My Hearing Devotee Has
Thus Realized My Word Of Instruction In The Form Of his or
her own Real and Effective Understanding, Then My Hearing
Devotee Has Realized Oneness With My Divine Offerings As
Adept Heart-Teacher. And Then My Hearing Devotee Must Come
To Me Most Fully At and Via The Heart, Able To Become My
Devotee In Spirit.

After True Hearing Has Awakened My Hearing Devotee At The
Heart, So That he or she Most Completely and Most Fully
Acknowledges and Responds To Me As Adept Heart-Teacher, My
Hearing Devotee Will Begin To Acknowledge and Respond To My
Revelation Of The Spiritual Form Of The Divine Person. That
Form Is The Inherently Attractive Spirit-Presence That Draws
the conditional self Beyond itself . When My Hearing Devotee
Awakens To The Spirit-Presence At The Heart, The Process Of
The Way Of The Heart Becomes Seeing. And Practice Of The Way
Of The Heart Is Thereby Awakened Beyond The “Original”
Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life, and Established In The
Spiritually Full Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life.

The “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life Is The Process Of
Spiritualization Of the psycho-physical personality Through
self-Transcending Devotional and Spiritual Communion With
Me. That Truly Spiritual Devotion Is Expressed internally
Through Heart-Feeling and Meditation, and It Is Expressed
externally Through Perpetual Service To Me In all relations
and circumstances. Just So, The Fourth Stage Of Life Is
Associated with Progressive Awakening In The Great Organ Of
The Heart.

The Region Of The Left Side Of The Heart Includes the
physical and lower psychic functions Of The Heart. It Is The
Ground Of early-life Development. In The Total Context Of
The Fourth Stage Of Life, The Heart Awakens From The Left
Toward The Middle, So That Advanced Growth Occurs In The
Domain Of the frontal personality. Therefore, As Devotional
Heart-Feeling and Heart-Submission Become More and More
Profound, There Is A Growing Awareness Of the greater subtle
and greater psychic functions Of The Heart.

The “Original” Orientation Of The Fourth Stage Of Life.
Is Determined By The Fact That The Practitioner Is Grounded
In The Left Side Of The Heart and, Therefore, In The Natural
Context Of the body-mind in the waking state, and In The
Natural Context Of the world of the waking state. Naturally
Identified With the waking body-mind, The Practitioner Of
The Way Of The Heart functions as the waking body-mind, To
Heart-Submit the Total body-mind-self Through Devotional
Communion With Me and Service To Me.

In The Way Of The Heart, The “Original” Fourth Stage
Practitioner Of Devotion To Me Naturally Conceives Of
himself or herself As My Servant, and, Thus and Thereby, The
Servant Of The Divine Person and Condition, and That Service
Is Expressed Through Constant Devotional Submission Of the
Total body-mind-self To self-Surrendering and
self-Forgetting Communion With Me, So That Even the Total
body-mind-self Is Really Converted, Positively Changed, and
Effectively Transcended By That Devotion, That Service, and
That bodily Worship.

In The Way Of The Heart, My Seeing Devotee Continues To
Directly Transcend The early-life Un-Happiness Of
Separation, Rejection, and Failed-integration, but The
Sublime Power Awakened, By Grace, In Spirit-Baptism Develops
An Extraordinary and New Dimension To The Way Of The Heart,
Such That, In any moment Of self-Submission To Spiritual
Communion With Me, the entire frontal personality Becomes
Immediately Converted To A Fundamentally Benign State and
Course. The Progress Of This Ordeal Is Indicated By Many
Grace-Given Signs In The Domain Of the frontal personality,
Culminating In Realization Of The Sublime Signs Of True
Spiritual Equanimity and Fullness In The Frontal Line and
The Yogic Sign Of “The Thumbs”.

The Real Process In The Fully Established “Basic” Context
Of The Fourth Stage Of Life Is The Yielding Of the Total
body-mind-self To Ecstatic Spiritual Communion with The
Transcendental Divine Source-Condition. This Involves The
Gesture Of self-Yielding Heart-Devotion To Me and To The
Divine Person, and Profound Heart-Gratitude For My
Grace-Given Gifts, Including My Bodily Form, The Leelas Of
All My Work, My Full-Given Word, My Free Heart-Baptism, The
By Me Revealed Divine Spirit-Current Itself, and The By Me
Revealed Fullness Of Conscious Being. Therefore, In The Way
Of The Heart, The Passage Through and Beyond The Total
Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life Requires True
self-Transcendence, In and Via self-Surrendering and
self-Forgetting Devotional Communion With Me. And Any
Collapse Upon the conditional self, Contracted From True
Devotional Communion With Me, Tends To Prolong The Course.
Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, True Fourth Stage
Practice Inherently and Necessarily Exceeds The conventional
Religious Tendencies Of The First Three Stages Of Life.

When Fully Established “Basic” Fourth Stage Practice In
The Context Of the frontal personality Has Developed The
Real and Free Evidence I Have Indicated, Fourth Stage
Acknowledgement and Realization Of Me Via The Revealed
Spirit-Presence Tends To Continue By Advancing To The
Context Of The Spinal Line Of The Circle. Therefore, Unless
A Transition Is Made To Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In
The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life, The Transition To
Fully “Advanced” Development Of The Fourth Stage Of Life
Begins The Process Of The Higher Spiritual Evolution and
Yogic Transcendence Of the psycho-physical personality Via
The Mystical Ascent Of attention.

The Fifth Stage Of Life Is Based On Previous
Acknowledgement and Realization Of God, Truth, or Reality
Via Heart-Communion With Me, and Via The By Grace Revealed
Spirit-Presence. And The Fifth Stage Of Life Is, Like Every
Other Stage, Associated With a Unique organ Of Adaptation
and Growth. Therefore, In The Fifth Stage Of Life, Growth Is
Associated With Evolutionary self-Transcendence Through
Adaptation To The Brain Core, or Ascent Via The Ajna
Door.

The Fully “Advanced” Process In The Context Of The Fourth
Stage Of Life Is The Process Of Devotional self-Submission
In Ascent To The Ajna Door, Signed By Yogic Evidence In The
Spinal Line and Even Various Forms Of Savikalpa Samadhi.
Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, In The “Advanced”
Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life and In The Context Of
The Fifth Stage Of Life, The Devotee Functions From The
Position Of The Middle Station Of The Heart.

In The Way Of The Heart, In The Specific Context Of The
Fifth Stage Of Life, My Devotee Is Spontaneously Free Of
Necessary Identification With the gross body, its relations,
and the conventional limitations of the waking state.
Therefore, Especially In Meditation, My Thus Advanced
Devotee functions Primarily as the mind itself.

For These Reasons, Meditative Practice Of The Way Of The
Heart In The Context Of The Fifth Stage Of Life Is Primarily
A Process Of Converting, Positively Changing, Releasing,
Merging, and Effectively Transcending the mind, Through
Devotional Ascent Via The Spirit-Current, Directed From The
Middle Region Of The Heart. In That Process, the mind-self
Reaches Toward and Yields To its Root-Source Above, Passing
Through Levels Of subtle mind and its relations, and the
mind Merges In The Inherently Formless Matrix Above, and
attention Stands Free Of body and mind.

In The Way Of The Heart, The Fifth Stage Process Tends
Toward The Temporary and Transitional Realization Of
Ascended, or Fifth Stage, conditional Nirvikalpa Samadhi.
The conventional Path Of Ascent Via The Mechanics Of the
brain-mind Is Itself A Traditional Effort or Search, Founded
On Uninspected egoity, In Which Fifth Stage conditional
Nirvikalpa Samadhi Is The Ultimate Goal. In The Way Of The
Heart, Ascent Toward Fifth Stage conditional Nirvikalpa
Samadhi Is A Temporary or Transitional Process, Founded In
The Devotional or self-Transcending Disposition Of The
Awakened Heart.

Even Before The Possible Realization Of Fifth Stage
conditional Nirvikalpa Samadhi In The Way Of The Heart, Many
Forms Of Savikalpa Samadhi May Be Realized. Such Experiences
Are Realizations Of mental Unity With the subtler planes of
mind. The Fifth Stage Of Life Is Not Passed Through and
Beyond Until The Levels Of Savikalpa Samadhi and Also
Utterly Ascended conditional Nirvikalpa Samadhi Are
Transcended Through Persistence In The self-Surrendering,
self-Forgetting, and Really self-Transcending Gesture Of
Real Practice. Therefore, Passage To The Sixth Stage Of Life
Requires Transcendence Of The Fifth Stage Error, Which Is
The Tendency To Seek or Hold On To the Ascended or subtle
states of mind, and “Visions” Of An Ultimate Mind, and The
Temporary Happiness Of psychic Dissolution In The Infinitely
Ascended Matrix Of mind itself.

The Sixth Stage Of Life Is The Process Of Awakening To
The Transcendental Self, The Perfectly Subjective Truth Of
all conditional beings and Of The Entire Cosmic Mandala Of
conditional worlds.

In The Way Of The Heart, Practice In The Context Of The
Sixth Stage Of Life Is Based On Previous Acknowledgement and
Realization Of God, Truth, or Reality Via Heart-Communion
With Me, and Via The By Grace Revealed Spirit-Presence. And
The Sixth Stage Of Life Is Itself A Matter Of Grace-Given
Acknowledgement and Realization Of God, Truth, or Reality As
The Transcendental Self, Revealed By My Mere Presence.

Growth In The Sixth Stage Of Life Occurs Within The
Context Of The Process Of Enstasy. And, In The Way Of The
Heart, That Process Is Related To The Right Side Of The
Great Organ Of The Heart.

The Right Side Of The Great Organ Of The Heart Is The
bodily Origin-Point Of attention and The bodily Seat Of
Self-Existing and Self-Radiant and Divine Self-Realization.
And Growth In The Way Of The Heart Tends Toward The
Realization Of conditional Transcendental Self-Realization
In Jnana Samadhi, In Which the self-Contraction No Longer
Prevents Realization Of The Transcendental Nature Of
Consciousness Itself.

In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life, The
Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart Is Natively Identified
With Consciousness, Prior To body and mind, As In the state
of deep sleep. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, The
Process In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life Is
Associated With The Right Side Of The Heart and
Consciousness As Witness. In That Process, The Living
Spirit-Current Resolves and Dissolves attention In The Right
Side Of The Heart, and The Witnessing Consciousness Yields
or Awakens To Feel Its Own Real Condition, Until the
Apparent conditional self Is Utterly Transcended In The
Realization Of The Unconditional or Prior Nature Of
Consciousness, Which Is The Transcendental Divine Self, or
Transcendental Consciousness Itself, or Unconditionally
Self-Radiant and Self-Existing Being.

In The Way Of The Heart, Passage Through and Beyond The
Sixth Stage Of Life Depends On Realization Of The
Transcendental Self, but It Also Requires Transcendence Of
The Tendency Of Holding To The Transcendental Self-Position
While Otherwise Strategically Excluding objective or
conditional states. It Is Only When The Tension or Stress
Associated With That Effort Of Exclusion Relaxes In Simple
or Tacit Divine Recognition Of phenomenal or conditional
states That There Is, By Grace, Full Awakening To The
Divinely Enlightened Condition and The Seventh Stage Of
Life.

The Seventh Stage Of Life Is The Priorly Self-Realized
and Divinely Self-Radiant Process Of Divinely Recognizing
and, Ultimately, Outshining Cosmic Existence. The Seventh
Stage Of Life Is The Culmination Of The Process Of
Acknowledgement and Realization Of God, Truth, or Reality
Via Heart-Communion With Me, and Via The By Grace Revealed
Spirit-Presence, and Via The By Grace Revealed
Transcendental Self. And The Original Sign Of The Seventh
Stage Of Life Is “Open Eyes”, or Sahaj Samadhi, Which Is The
Divinely Perfect Realization Of The “Bright”.

In The Seventh Stage Of Life, There Is Inherent,
Constant, Inherently Perfect, Prior, Uncaused, and
Unconditional Identification with The Self-Existing and
Self-Radiant Divine Fullness Of Being. In The Seventh Stage
Of Life, The Transcendental Divine Self-Condition, Rather
Than the conditional body, body-mind, body-mind-self,
mind-self, or limited and Separate self, Is Always Already
The Position and Condition Of Existence, Even If and When
conditional psycho-physical states arise, whether waking,
dreaming, or sleeping. In That Case, No Matter what arises,
No limited self Defines The Inherent Being, but The
Transcendental Divine Self, or The Self-Existing Condition
Of Unconditionally Self-Radiant Being, Is Always Already The
Position In Which phenomenal or conditional states arise,
and all such phenomena, conditions, or states Are Inherently
and Immediately Recognized and Transcended. Therefore, In
The Seventh Stage Of Life, The Transcendental Divine Self Is
Always Already The Condition Realized, Prior To all
objective or conditional references. Then The Way Of The
Heart Is Not To Progressively Realize That Transcendental,
Inherently Spiritual, and Divine Self-Condition, but Only To
Be That, Simply, Divinely Recognizing whatever arises To Be
Only That.

The Unique Organ Associated With Apparent Adaptation and
Growth In The Seventh Stage Of Life Is Amrita Nadi, The
Divine Body Of Love-Bliss or Eternal Praise, Associated With
The Spiritual Current Of Love-Bliss That Is Realized Between
The Right Side Of The Heart and The Apparent Locus That Is
Infinitely Above The Crown Of the head.

The Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Condition Revealed and
Realized In The Awakening Of “Open Eyes” Has No Shape or
Form, but Amrita Nadi, The Apparent Organ Of This Awakening
In the human individual, Is Shaped Like The Letter “S”, and
The Spiritual Current Of Self-Existing and Self-Radiant
Being Moves In It, Out From The Right Side Of The Heart,
Then Forward and Up the chest, Then Into the throat, Then Up
the back of the head, and Then Forward To The Matrix
Above.

In The Perfectly Awakened or Fully Conscious Condition Of
“Open Eyes”, conditionally Manifested forms or events
arising To The View Of Consciousness Are Spontaneously and
Inherently Recognized As Illusory, Merely Apparent, or
Non-Binding Modifications Of Itself. ThisYoga Of Divine
Recognition Is The Process Whereby The Total Cosmic Domain
Is Spontaneously Recognized In The Pre-Cosmic Form Of God,
Truth, or Reality, Which Is The Divine Self-Domain.

The Seventh Stage Of Life Is A Demonstration Of Divine
Enlightenment Based On Previous Acknowledgement and
Realization Of God, Truth, or Reality Via Heart-Communion
with Me, and Via The By Grace Revealed Spirit-Presence, and
Via The By Grace Revealed Transcendental, Inherently
Spiritual, and Divine Self. And The Seventh Stage Of Life Is
Itself A Matter Of Spontaneous Recognition Of all conditions
In and As The Self-Existing “Bright” Itself, Which Is The
Self-Radiant Condition Of Transcendental Divine Being.

The First Sign or Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of
Life Is Divine Transfiguration, In Which the body-mind Is
Self-Radiant with Divine Love-Bliss, Spontaneously Blessing
all of the relations of the body-mind.

The Second Sign or Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of
Life Is Divine Transformation, In Which the body-mind
Effectively Exhibits The Signs and Powers Of God.

The Third Sign or Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of
Life Is Divine Indifference, In Which Even the body-mind Is
Pre-Occupied with The Self-Existing Event Of Self-Radiant
Love-Bliss, and the world of relations Is Minimally and Not
Otherwise Noticed.

The Final Sign or Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of
Life Is The Great and Absolute Fulfillment Of The Entire
Process Of Acknowledgement and Realization Of God, Truth, or
Reality Via Heart-Communion with Me, and Via The By Grace
Revealed Spirit-Presence, and Via The By Grace Revealed
Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, and Divine Self.

The Final Sign or Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of
Life Is The Culmination Of The Process Of Spontaneous Divine
Recognition Of All conditional Modifications As The “Bright”
Itself.

The Final Sign or Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of
Life Is The Great Event Of Divine Translation, Which Is The
Ultimate Demonstration Of Moksha-Bhava Samadhi, or
Inherently Perfect Nirvikalpa Samadhi, or The Process Of
Transition To The Divine Self-Domain Via The Divinely
“Bright” Outshining Of The Cosmic Domain.

In The Great Event Of Divine Translation, The Total
Cosmic Domain, Even Epitomized By The Divine Star, Is
Outshined By The Divine Self-Domain.

The Inherent Radiance, or Self-Light, Of Transcendental
Divine Being Is The Heart, The Inherent Self, and The
Eternal Condition Of all conditionally Manifested beings.
Therefore, The Way Of The Heart Is Fulfilled In Divine
Translation Only, By Heart-Shining, Until The Heart Is
Outshined By Itself.
