The Heart Itself Must Exceed Every Stage, Until The Seventh Is Perfected As Itself

In Truth, The Way Of The Heart Begins At birth and Progresses Through (or Otherwise Directly Beyond) Each Of The Seven Stages Of Life, Until Divine Translation.

Individuals who Are Not born Into The Formal Community Of True Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Generally Come To The Way Of The Heart At an adult age. Such individuals Have Already Passed Through the years Of Growth that Are Naturally Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life. Even So, they Invariably Exhibit The Signs Of Patterned Un-Happiness That Characterize The Failures Of functional, practical, and relational Adaptation In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life (and That Retard The human Work Of individuation, socialization, or relationalization, and integration).

Therefore, The Way Of The Heart Requires An Ordeal Of The Heart. Even From birth, and Even In The Context Of Each Of The First Three Stages Of Life, The Heart (or The Power Of Inherently Free Being, Consciousness, and Love-Bliss) Should Be Awakened (By Grace, and In The Manner Appropriate To Each Such Stage), or Else human Adaptation and Growth Will Necessarily Be Retarded and Made Un-Happy By The self-Contracting Efforts Of egoity.

It Is Free and Effective Heart-Feeling (or The Free Power Of The Heart) That Enables human beings To Grow Beyond self-Contraction To Ultimate (or Inherent, and Inherently Perfect) Realization Of God (or The Divine Self-Condition), and If Free Heart-Feeling Is Suppressed (or If The Free Power Of The Heart Is Not Awakened and Made Steady, Stage Of Life By Stage Of Life, In The Course Of human Development), human beings Cannot Grow Beyond The Un-Happy Settlements Of The First Three Stages Of Life.

The Heart Is Mine. The Heart Is The Domain Of All My Work. The Heart Is Always In God, but Reaction To the conditions Associated With Apparent birth into the Cosmic planes Produces The Apparent conditional Destiny Of Retarded Growth and All The Suffering Of self-Contraction. Therefore, This self-Contracting Reaction To conditional or phenomenal states Must Be Transcended In The Context (or Otherwise In The Effective Transcendence) Of Every Stage Of Life. The Heart Must Awaken At (or In Relation To) Every Stage Of Life, and the individual being Must Grow To Be Attracted and Distracted By The Forms Of God, and Thus To Feel Beyond The Bond Of conditional events (or all that limits and Retards the conditionally Manifested being In God), and, Ultimately, To Feel Beyond (and Perfectly Prior To) all that is Not The Realization Of Divine Being Itself.

In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life (Which Are To Be Developed Within The “Original”, or Beginners, Devotional Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life) In The Way Of The Heart, The Hearts Free Urge To Perfectly self-Transcending God-Realization Must Be Very Fully Awakened (and Made Active and Effective) By A Growing Response To My Heart-Revealing Realization-Sign, and My Full-Given Word Of Confessions, Arguments, and Questions, and All My Heart-Instructing and Heart-Blessing Leelas. Therefore, those who Grow By Such Response Are Gracefully Inspired, and Constantly Instructed, and Always Directly Helped (and Quickened) In their Growth, By My Free Person (or My Revealing Bodily Human Form, and, Tacitly, My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State) and By All My Storied and Heart-Liberating Work.

In The Fully Established “Basic” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life (and In The Possible, or Potential, “Advanced” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life, and Also In The Possible, or Potential, Context Of The Fifth Stage Of Life) In The Way Of The Heart, The Heart Must (By Grace) Be Established In Full (and Either Technically “Elaborate” Or Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”) Heart-Response To My Revealed Spirit-Presence (As Well As To My Bodily Human Form, and To My Ever-Speaking Word, and To My Storied Leelas Of Teaching and Blessing).

In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, The Heart Must (By Grace) Be Established In (and As) The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Self, Realized On The Basis Of The Previously Established Response To My Grace-Given Bodily (Human) Form, and To My Gracefully Revealed Spirit-Presence, and On The Grace-Given Basis Of A Direct and Heart-Realizing Response To My Very (and Inherently Perfect) State.

And In The Context Of The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, Based On All That Was Gracefully Established and Realized In The Context (or Otherwise In The Transcendence) Of The First Six Stages Of Life, The Heart Must (By Grace) Be Established In The “Bright” (or Inherently Spiritual, and Transcendental) Divine Self, Inherently, Immediately, Spontaneously, and Divinely Recognizing (and Thus Divinely Transcending) all Apparent conditions (and Even The Divine Star That Is their Apparently Ascended and Apparently Objective Source).

In The Way Of The Heart, Even Every Stage Of Life That Is Entered Is A Circumstance In Which I Call My Listening Devotee, or My Hearing Devotee, or My Seeing Devotee At The Heart. Even From The Beginning, The Way Of The Heart Is A Call To Grow Toward The Only One Who Is (and Thus, By Growing Beyond the ego-“I”, To Become Established In Every One Of The Forms Of God, Truth, or Reality).

The Way Of The Heart Is, From The Beginning, A Response To The (By Me Given) Call To Realize The Inherently Perfect Fullness Of The Divine Person. Therefore, Even The Inherently Perfect Happiness Of The Seventh Stage Realization Of The Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, and (Necessarily) Divine Reality Must Inspire (and Also Progressively Characterize) All The Stages Of Life. And It Can Be So, If Every Stage Of Life Is Lived (or Otherwise Transcended) In Response To (or In The Impulse Toward) The Great Person (or The Great Reality Itself).

If There Is self-Transcending (or Ecstatic) Communion With Me, Then The Divine Person (The Only One Who Is ) Is Realized As I Am (and Thus, Tacitly, and Ultimately, As The Inherent or Native Feeling Of Being, Itself). Because Of This, Whatever his or her Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, My Listening Devotee, My Hearing Devotee, or My Seeing Devotee Will Tacitly Receive Even All The By Me Given Forms Of The Divine Person (At First In Simplest Feeling, but Effectively, and Then, As The Stages Of Life Progress, More and More, Until That Great Reception Is Perfect, Ultimately).

Therefore, The First Three Stages Of Life (In The “Original”, or Beginners, Devotional Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life) In The Way Of The Heart Must Become Associated With Participatory (and Even Faithful) Dependence Upon Me (and, Thus and Thereby, Upon The Divine Person and Condition) Via The Left Side Of The Heart, but The Middle Station Of The Heart and The Right Side Of The Heart Will Also (Tacitly) Be Established In Me (and, Thus and Thereby, In The Divine Person and Condition), If My Devotee Really and Truly Enters Into self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and (More and More Effectively) self-Transcending Communion With Me (and, Thus, and By Grace, Spontaneously and Progressively Realizes The True Devotional Disposition, and, Eventually, The Spiritual Fullness, Of The Fourth Stage Of Life).

And Even Though The (Developing) Fourth Stage Of Life and (Also) The Fifth Stage Of Life Are (In The Way Of The Heart) Associated With The Developing Response To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person) Via The Middle Station Of The Heart (As Well As The Left Side Of The Heart), Any Devotee who Truly Enters Into Such (and self-Transcending) Communion With Me Will (Surely, By Grace, and In Due Course) Realize The Witness-Consciousness (Even Via The Right Side Of The Heart), and So Be Moved (By Grace) To The Inherently Perfect Practice Of The Way Of The Heart (In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life).

And Even Though The Sixth Stage Of Life Is (In The Way Of The Heart) Associated With Perfect Feeling-Contemplation Of Me (and, Thus and Thereby, Of The Divine Person) As Consciousness Itself (and Thus With Grace-Given Direct Identification With Consciousness Itself, Via The Right Side Of The Heart), My True Devotee Will (Surely, By Grace, and, In Due Course, Suddenly) Awaken To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person) Most Perfectly (Even, Thereby, Including The Middle Station Of The Heart and The Left Side Of The Heart), and Entirely (or Most Perfectly, or Inherently) Free, and (Therefore) Even Free Of The Motive To Exclude the (Apparent) body-mind and its (Apparent) relations. In This Manner, My True Devotee Will Enter Into The Seventh Stage Of Life, Wherein the (Apparent) body-mind, Founded In The Totally Awakened Heart, Is (Inherently, and Inherently Perfectly) Resolved In The Self-Radiant (or Inherently Spiritual) and Self-Existing (or Transcendental) Divine Being, and My True Devotee (Thus, Most Perfectly, Awakened) Will Surely Come To The Divine Self-Domain, Via The Divinely Self-Revealed Doorway (or Infinite Self-Radiance) Of The Heart (Realized As The “Bright” Itself).

The Truly self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Response (or Responsive Impulse) Of The Total Heart To (or Toward) My Bodily (Human), Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Revelation Is The Great Gesture To Which I Call My Listening Devotee, or My Hearing Devotee, or My Seeing Devotee At Every Stage Of Life. Only Listen To Me, and Hear Me, and See Me. And If You Are Listening To Me, or Hearing Me, or Seeing Me, Then Love Me Now, In My Bodily (Human) Form (Now and Hereafter Ever-Given As My Sign). And Whenever You Truly Acknowledge and (Through Formally Acknowledged Practice) Embrace Me As Your True Heart-Master (Even In My Function As The Adept Teacher Of The Heart), You Will (or, Surely, Must) Presently Enjoy A Revelation Of The Very Divine Person, and A Tacit Awakening To All The Forms Of God, Truth, or Reality.

Even So, This Heart-Responsive Awakening Should (and, Surely, Will) Be Expressed In A More and More Mature and Fully Conscious Fashion As My Listening Devotee (who Grows To Hear Me and See Me) Moves Through The Stages Of Life In The Way Of The Heart. Every moment Of Practice (As Well As Each Advancing Stage Of Life) In The Way Of The Heart Will Be A Testing School For My Listening Devotee, My Hearing Devotee, or My Seeing Devotee. And The Measure That Is (Ultimately) To Be Schooled and Tested Is My Devotees Heart-Response To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person). Therefore, each moment Of Practice and Every Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart Will Require Increased Responsibility For The Gift That Is Practice Itself, Because Growth In Practice Is Always Based On A Progressively Unfolding Disclosure (or A Magnification Of Awareness) Of The human Design, and A Coincident Increase In The Level Of Participatory self-Submission Required By Every New Stage Of Revelation.

Even children and young people Practicing and Developing In The Natural (early-life) Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life Within The By Me Given Wisdom-Culture Of The Way Of The Heart Are Called To Respond (From The Heart) To Me (As True Heart-Master, or Hridaya-Samartha Sat-Guru, and Especially In My Function As Adept Heart-Teacher), and (Thus and Thereby) To Commune With The Divine Person (and Self-Condition) As I Am (In and As The Simple Felt-Mystery Of Being That Is Inherently Associated With Natural and human Existence). They Are Called To Commune With God, Truth, or The Mystery Of Reality Via My Help (In and As My Sign, and Via My Word and My Leelas), and (Thus and Thereby) To Commune (In The early-life Devotees Rudimentary, Simple, and More General Fashion) With God, Truth, or The Mystery Of Reality As The Universal (or All-Pervading) “Spirit-Presence” (Simply As Implied, or Naturally Suggested, By their experience Of The Universal Field Of Natural etheric energy, and By The Natural Heart-Feeling Of Happiness and Love), and As The (Possibly, Naturally experienced) Apparently Objective “Divine Star”, and As The “Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Self” (experienced Naturally, As The Mysterious Being-Feeling Inherently Associated With Natural and human Existence), and Even Altogether (According To their Ability, or The Degree and Quality Of their Awareness) As The “Bright” and Ultimate Mystery Of God (Revealed By and As My Sign, and By All My Revelation-Work). Because Of This, they Will Surely Grow Toward adult age Served By My Living Wisdom At The Heart, and, For This Reason, they Should Be Able To Pass More Readily (As adults) Through The (Further) Listening and (Then) Hearing Process To Real Practice In The Seeing Context Of The Fully Established “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life.

Those who Come To Me At an adult age Are First Called To Listen To Me (In The Beginners Devotional Manner) and To Hear Me, and Thereby To Awaken (Eventually) To Fullest Devotional Response To Me (Full Of The Capable Motive Of self-Transcendence and The Capable Impulse Toward Perfectly self-Transcending God-Realization). And That First Period (Of Listening and Hearing) Is (Like All Subsequent Developmental Stages In The Way Of The Heart) To Take Place Within (and By Right Participation In) My Formal (and Formally Acknowledged) Sacred and Cultural and Cooperative Community Of Devotees (Which Includes Even every individual who Is A Formally Acknowledged and True Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart).

All adult Beginners In The Way Of The Heart, whatever their age, Are (Naturally) Still functioning (Basically) In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life. However, As Soon As such individuals Begin To Listen To Me (In The Context Of The Devotional Relationship To Me, As True Heart-Master, and Especially In My Function As Adept Heart-Teacher), they Have Already Begun To Develop The Orientation That Is The First (or “Original”) Characteristic Of The Fourth Stage Of Life. And After Such Listening Devotees Awaken To True Hearing and Basic human Equanimity (Through The Ordeal Of Most Fundamental self-Understanding, Whether Primarily By Devotional Feeling and Insight Or Primarily By Devotional Feeling and Faith), and As Soon As they (As My Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Devotees) Grow To Actually and Truly See Me, they Will (and Must) Begin Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Fully Established “Basic” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life (In Spiritually Activated Devotional Relationship To Me and, Thus and Thereby, In The By Grace Revealed Spiritual Presence Of The Divine Person, Who Is Attractive and Love-Blissful At The Free-Feeling Heart).

For All adult Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, The Student-Beginner Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, The First Three Practicing Stages Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and The Listening Stage, The Hearing Stage, The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage, and The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Development Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Involve The Practice Of Disciplines Which Are Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life, and Which Are Progressively Associated With Heart-Surrender Into The (“Original”, and Then The “Basic”) Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life. Therefore, Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life Begins (In A Progressively Devotional Manner) In The Student-Beginner Stage, Then (Unless Practice Continues In The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Manner Of A “Lay Congregationist”) It Develops Responsively (In The Beginners Responsible Devotional Manner) In The First Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, Becomes Full (or Spiritually Active) In The Second Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and Develops (Most Basically) In The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart. And, If An Early Transition Is Not Made To The “Perfect Practice” Of The Way Of The Heart In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life, The adult Practitioner Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Should Continue Practice In The (“Advanced”) Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life By Transitioning To The Fourth Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, Wherein and Whereby The Transition Should Eventually Be Made Either To Practicing Stage Five Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (and To Transitional Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Context Of The Fifth Stage Of Life) Or, Even More Directly, To Practicing Stage Six Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (and To Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life), Before The Final Transition Is Made To Practicing Stage Seven Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (and, Thereby, To The Demonstration Of The Way Of The Heart In The Context Of The Seventh Stage Of Life).

Even Though All adult Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Must Necessarily Begin their Practice In The Domain Of The First Three Stages Of Life, The Process Of their Discipline Should In Fact Also Constantly Develop (Progressively) Within The (“Original”, and Then The “Basic”) Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life. Therefore, For All adult (and, Likewise, All early-life) Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, The Fourth Stage Of Life Is To Be Progressively Entered, Through An Urge and A Process That Are Embraced At The Very Beginning Of The Way Of The Heart (and Even From The Beginning Of The Formal Approach To The Way Of The Heart), but Full Entrance Into The (“Original”, and Then The Fully Established “Basic”) Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart Must Develop Progressively, (First) Through The Preparatory (or Student-Beginner) Period Of First Study-“Consideration” and First Devotionally Responsive Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, and (Subsequently) Either Through The First Three Practicing Stages Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Or Through The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Process Of Listening, Hearing, Would-Be-Seeing (or Progressively Seeing), and First Actual Seeing In The Practice Of The “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart.

The Student-Beginner Of The Way Of The Heart Should Be Freely Moved To Acknowledge and Honor My Grace-Given Person, and Word, and Leelas, Through The Consistent Offering Of attention (and the human Feeling-energies Of Serious Response) To My Now and Hereafter Ever-Given Bodily (Human) Sign, and My Recorded and Ever-Speaking Word, and My Recorded and Ever-Living Leelas. Therefore, Even Though The Student-Beginner Of The Way Of The Heart is (At First, and By Tendency) Most Likely a Relatively limited (or Reactively Patterned), Religiously Undeveloped, and Spiritually Un-Awakened character, who is (At First, and By Tendency) Defined By The Signs Of Failed Adaptation In The First Three Stages Of Life, and who is (At First, and By Tendency) limited (Through Adaptation Itself) By the ordinary purposes (or desires) Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life, The Fundamental Motive Of self-Transcendence and The Great Impulse Toward Perfectly self-Transcending God-Realization Can (and Must) Very Fully Awaken At The Heart In and By The Profound Process Of The Beginnings Of True Listening. (Indeed, Even Though The Student-Beginners Listening-“Consideration” Works To Confirm The Motive Of self-Transcendence and The Great Impulse Toward Perfectly self-Transcending God-Realization, and To Thoroughly Establish That Motive and That Impulse As A Real Practice, The Motive Of self-Transcendence and The Impulse Toward Perfectly self-Transcending God-Realization Must Necessarily Be Already Established, As A Real Workable Commitment, Even As A Basis For Engaging The Student-Beginners Practice Itself. Therefore, A Preparatory Period Of Listening, or Initial, and Actively Responsive, Feeling-attention To My Revelation-Sign, and My Full-Given Word, and My Storied Leelas Of Teaching and Blessing, Must Necessarily Precede The Right Formal Engagement Of Even The Student-Beginners Practice Of The Way Of The Heart.)

In The Progressive Course Of The Formal, and Formally Acknowledged, Practitioners First (or Student-Beginners) Period Of Embrace Of The Beginners Devotional Relationship To Me (Especially In My Function As The Adept Teacher Of The Heart), and Of (Thus) Responsive “Consideration” Of My Full-Given Word and My Storied Leelas, and Of (Thus) Responsive (and Experimental, or Exploratory and self-Testing) Application To The By Me Given Forms Of functional, practical, relational, and Cultural self-Discipline Associated (From The Beginning) With The Way Of The Heart, and Of (Thus) Responsive (and Experimental) Practice Of The Two Devotional Ways (Of Faith and Of Insight) Of The One Great Way Of The Heart, The Student-Beginner Must Eventually (and Truly) Choose To Practice One or The Other Of The Two Devotional Ways (and All The By Me Given Original Gifts, and Callings, and Basic Disciplines) Of The One Great Way Of The Heart. By Means Of This Total Course (and As A Result Of The Necessary Choice Ultimately Made Within It), The Acquired Un-Happiness (Of Separation and Separativeness) Relative To The Work Of individuation (Characteristic Of The First Stage Of Life) Should Be Significantly Released (and the activity of the body-mind Should Thereby, or As A Demonstration Of That Release, Become Conformed, or Responsively Directed Toward, The Way Of Happiness Itself). Indeed, the Inherent (and Otherwise Acquired) limits Of Even All Of The First Three Stages Of Life Should Become (To A Significant Degree) Obvious In That Earliest Practice (or Student-Beginner Sadhana) Of Listening.

Therefore, When The Student-Beginners Original Heart-Motive Toward Perfectly self-Transcending God-Realization Is, By Grace, Very Deeply Confirmed and More (and Very) Fully Awakened (Via Truly self-Surrendering and self-Forgetting Devotion To Me, and Via Really Effective “Consideration” Of The Way Of The Heart, In Practice), and When That Student-Beginners Active Feeling-Contemplation and Responsive Devotional Acknowledgement Of My Now and Hereafter Ever-Given Bodily Human Sign, and Also his or her Study and Real “Consideration” Of My Word and Work, Have Become his or her Thorough and Consistent Demonstration Of All My Original Gifts, Callings, and Disciplines (Including The Primary Gift, Calling, and Discipline Of Ishta-Guru-Bhakti Yoga), and When and If (By All Of That) the individual Is Prepared (and Happy) To Be Made Increasingly Effective In The Real Practice Of The Way Of The Heart By The Ever Thereafter Continued and Magnified (or More and More Detailed and Comprehensive) Application Of The Total Range Of functional, practical, relational, and Cultural Disciplines and Obligations Given By Me To Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (For The Sake Of, Ultimately, Inherent, and Inherently Perfect, and Inherently Perfectly self-Transcending, God-Realization), Then he or she Should Move On Either To “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The (Technically) “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Way Of The Heart Or (If he or she Is Demonstrably Apt and Capable) To The First Practicing Stage Of The (Technically) “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart.

In The First Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Course Of Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart), The Practice Of Right Relationship To Me (Especially In My Function As Heart-Teacher, and As The Adept-Source Of The Ever-Speaking Word and The Storied Work) Is To Be (Further, and Formally, Rather Than Experimentally) Enlarged Through The Voluntary, Intentional, Intelligent, and Consistent Application Of functional, practical, relational, and Cultural Disciplines (Whereby the self-Contraction Is More and More Fully and Exactly Revealed). Therefore, During The First Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Course Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Course Of Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart), Progressively More Profoundly self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and (Truly Effectively) self-Transcending Feeling-Contemplation Of (Especially) My Bodily (Human) Form Should Develop, and “Consideration” Of All My Fundamental Teaching Arguments (Especially Relative To “Narcissus” and Divine Ignorance) Should Become (Increasingly) Profoundly Effective, and (In The Case Of those who Practice The Devotional Way Of Insight) Both Random and Formal self-Enquiry (In The Form “Avoiding Relationship?”) Should Become Profoundly Effective, or Else (In The Case Of those who Practice The Devotional Way Of Faith) Both Random and Formal Sat-Guru-Naama Japa Should Become Profoundly Effective (or, In The Case Of “Lay Congregationists” who Practice The Technically “Simplest” Feeling-Contemplation Of Me, With Random Invocation Of Me By Name, That Technically “Simplest” Exercise Of The Devotional Way Of Faith Should Become Profoundly Effective). All Of That, Including Inspired Response To My Historical Play Of Teaching Work and My Eternal (and Always Present) Play Of Blessing Work, and Also Including Regular Participation In Sacramental, Ceremonial, and Other Formal, or Informal, Occasions Of Celebration Of Me, Serves (or Must Serve) To (More and More) Awaken The (“Original”, and Then The “Basic”) Fourth Stage Response.

That Total Process (Culminating In The Fully Established Awakening Of The Spiritually Activated “Basic” Fourth Stage Response) Truly (or Most Fundamentally) Releases (or Must Release) The Un-Happy First Stage Motive Toward Separation and Separativeness (or The “Problem” About individual Existence). And The Dramatization Of The Un-Happy (or egoic) Second Stage Motive Of Rejection (By and Of others) Is Also To Be (Most Fundamentally) Released By These Same Means. Therefore, Before The individual Practitioner Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Makes The Transition To The Second Practicing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, Before The “Lay Congregationist” Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart May Be Said To Be Demonstrating All The Necessary Effective Signs Of True Hearing), the Basic limitations Dramatized In The Context Of The First Three Stages Of Life Must Be Released (or Become A Matter Of Direct Responsibility) Through Most Fundamental self-Understanding (or True Hearing), Such That the frontal personality Thereby Fulfills The Third Stage Necessity Of human integration (or The Realization Of ordinary and Basic human Balance and Wholeness).

My Spirit-Baptism Awakens Signs In and Of The Middle Station Of The Heart (or the deep psychic being) In My Devotee. In The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Course Of The Way Of The Heart, That Baptism Is To Occur, To Real Effect, During The Second Practicing Stage. At That Stage (or, Otherwise, Whenever Both The Evidence Of Truly Effective Hearing and The Signs Of Readiness For True Seeing Awaken In The Course Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart), The Spiritual Basis For The Lovelessness That Was egoically Associated with The Second Stage Of Life Is To Be Directly Transcended Through The Grace-Given Spiritual Conversion To Love (or Grace-Given Conversion To The Spiritual Reality, Which Is Love, or Love-Bliss, Itself). That Is To Say, By True Seeing (or Fullest, and Spiritually Activated, emotional, and Total psycho-physical, Conversion To Love-Communion with The Living, or Spiritual, Divine), the frontal personality Is (In The Way Of The Heart) To Be Released From the Spiritual limitation that Diminishes Love (or The Inherent Radiance Of Being Itself), and the Truly Spiritual socialization (or Spiritual relationalization) of the frontal (and Truly human) personality Through Love (or The Infusion and Demonstration Of Inherent Love-Bliss) Is Thereby To Be Set In Motion.

The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is The Most Basic (or Fully Prepared) Technically “Elaborate” Practicing Stage Associated With The Fully Established “Basic” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life. During That Stage Of The Technically “Elaborate” Practice (or, Otherwise, In The Context Of Truly Both Hearing and Seeing “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart), the individual Is To Complete The Work Of Growth Beyond the ordinary limits Of The First Three Stages Of Life By Fully Integrating the frontal personality With The By Grace Revealed Spiritual Reality. Therefore, In The Context Of The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, In The Context Of Truly Both Hearing and Seeing “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart), the frontal personality Is To Be Spiritually Purified, Spiritually Balanced, and Made Full Of Spirit-Life, Through The Ecstatic Yoga Of (Spiritually Activated) Devotional self-Sacrifice, In Which The Frontal Line Of the body-mind Is (or Must Be) Spiritually Converted To Divine Love-Communion By The Constant Exercise Of The Spiritually Awakened Heart.

The Fourth Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is The (Technically “Elaborate”) Stage Of “Advanced” (Rather Than “Original”, and More Simple, or Otherwise “Basic”) Practice In The Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life. And The Fourth Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is The (Technically “Elaborate”) Stage Of (Potential) Transition From The (“Advanced”) Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life To The Fifth Stage Of Life. The (Possible) Transition From The Third Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart To The Fourth Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is The Transition From “Elaborate” Technical Practices Predominantly Associated With The Frontal Line and the frontal personality To “Elaborate” Technical Practices Predominantly Associated With The Spinal Line and Evolutionary self-Transcendence Through Devotional Ascent. Practice During The Fourth Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Must Continue, In the ordinary daily circumstance, To Submit the frontal personality To Divine Communion, but The Primary Practice To Which My Devotees Are Called In The Fourth Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Is That Of Devotional self-Submission (In Ascent) From The Anahata Chakra (The Middle Station Of The Heart), Which Releases The Spirit-Current Up Into The Spinal Line and To The Ajna Door (or Ajna Chakra). And The Fifth Stage Of Life Has Begun (or May Begin) When Devotional Concentration, or Ascending Feeling-Contemplation, At The Ajna Door Is Steady In daily Meditation Practice. (And, Likewise, Practice In The Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Context Of The “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart May, If Necessary, Spontaneously Demonstrate, By Grace, and In Due Course, Advanced Signs and Processes Of The Ascending Type, In The Context Of The “Advanced” Fourth Stage Of Life and, Perhaps, Also The Fifth Stage Of Life, but, Even In That Case, “Lay Congregationist” Practice Itself Must, In Its Fundamental Details, Remain, As Also In The “Basic” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life, The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, One That Developed In The Full Course Of Student-Beginner Practice In The “Original” Context Of The Way Of The Heart.)

The Transition Is Made (or May Be Made) To The Fifth Practicing Stage Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart (or, Otherwise, To “Lay Congregationist” Practice In The Context Of The Fifth Stage Of Life) When Devotional (and Spiritual) Concentration (In Meditation) Is Regularly and Easily Steadied At The Ajna Door. Likewise, Transitions To The Ultimate Practicing Stages (or To The Sixth Practicing Stage, and Then To The Seventh Practicing Stage) Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart Are Also To Be Made In Due Course, As I Will Describe In This Testament, (And Practice In The Truly Hearing and Seeing Context Of The “Lay Congregationist” Form Of The Way Of The Heart May Also, By Grace, In Due Course, Spontaneously and Altogether Really and Truly Demonstrate The Sixth Stage Signs and Processes, and Then The Seventh Stage Signs and Processes, Of The “Perfect Practice” Of The Way Of The Heart, but, Even In That Case, “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Must, Fundamentally, Remain The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, One, Made Inherently Perfect, By Grace, Through Mere, or “Simple”, or Even “Simplest”, Feeling-Contemplative-Identification with My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State.)
