The Dawn Horse Testament (1991) – Adi Da Samraj – Da Avabhasa


Notice

This 1991 version of The Dawn Horse Testament is NOT the final version by Adidam (Adi Da).

“you should not study any earlier edition of The Dawn Horse Testament (or any earlier edition of any other of My “source-Texts”). The final edition is it. There are not “multi-editions” or “mutil-instructions”.
“I am taking great care to prevent the falsification and transformation of the Reality-Way of Adidam – all of this kind of make-it-up-as-you-go-along do-it-yourself “religiosity” and revisionism.

Adi Da Samraj 2004


The current and latest 2004 edition of The Dawn Horse Testament is out of print. It is not entirely “current” with Beloved Adi Da’s final language conventions and the details of His practical Instructions. Since their is no final or official version available Beezone feels it appropriate to use this 1991 version as a form of study with the understanding of the above ‘notice’.

Chapter 23

Observe Your Separate and Separative self, Understand Your Separate and Separative self, and Freely Surrender The Ritual Of Your Separate and Separative self.

The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart Requires A Profound Exercise Of the frontal personality That Submits, Opens, and Rightly Polarizes, Purifies, Balances, and Infuses the frontal or human character. In That Process, the human and Spiritual limitations of the frontal character Are To Be Constantly Encountered and Surrendered Via Directly and Effectively self-Transcending Devotional and Spiritual Communion With Me.

This Real Process Of Encounter and self-Surrender Inevitably Produces Many Kinds Of phenomenal Signs. Even Some Signs Related To The Ascending Spiritual Process May Spontaneously Appear, but The Significant Signs That Are Specific To The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart Are Associated With The Descending Process. Thus, The Significant phenomenal Signs At This Developmental Stage Include psycho-physical Openings and Releases Everywhere In The Frontal Line, Spiritually Relieving egoic mental, emotional, and physical Patterns, Reactions, and Blocks In The Hierarchical Structure, From the head To the bodily base.

The self-Contraction Shows itself, In The Context Of The Frontal Line, In A Hierarchical Pattern, Progressing From the head To the bodily base Via A Range Of specific emotions and bodily and mental states that Generally Prevent Spiritual Communion With The Divine Love-Bliss That Is Native To Existence Itself. In The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, My Devotee Must Be Already Equipped To Immediately and Directly Transcend these various states that Generally Prevent Spiritual Communion With The Divine Love-Bliss. Therefore, In The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, The Spiritual Process Of Such self-Transcendence Is Primarily Engaged Relative To Patterns Of self-Contraction That Merely Diminish , Rather Than Prevent, Direct Communion With The Divine Love-Bliss.

The head Is Associated With mental Patterns That Reflect the emotional and physical conditions below, and, In The Context Of Practice In The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, My Devotee Discovers That The Primary mental Sign Of the self-Contraction, Whereby Spiritual Communion With The Divine Love-Bliss Is Diminished, Is The Habit or Tendency Of Non-Specific Doubt.

Immediately below the head Is The Region Of the throat. The self-Contraction Registers In This Region As Tendencies Either Toward The Diminishment Of psycho-physical Equanimity Or Toward A Degree Of Suppression Of bodily energy and human Aliveness.

The General Region Of The Heart Is Associated With emotional Patterns That Reflect conditions everywhere in the body-mind. The self-Contraction Is Displayed emotionally As every kind of Chronic and Key emotion, or Pattern Of emotional Reaction, Including Fear, Sorrow, Anger, and Un-Love, but The Maturing Spiritual Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart, In whom Hearing, Seeing, and The Advancing Spiritual Process Of Ishta-Guru-Bhakti Yoga Have Already Purified The Heart In Its Average Of moments, Discovers That The Primary emotional Sign Of the self-Contraction Is Boredom.

If Heart-Boredom Is Suffered, The objectless Doubt Is Also Made To Seem. Or If The Doubt Appears, Heart-Boredom Is Likewise Suffered. And If the mind Of Doubt and The Heart Of Boredom Are Suffered, the entire body-mind Is Expressed By Either Chronic Or Variously Ranging Signs Of Discomfort. Therefore, In The Case Of Spiritually Awakened Devotees In The Way Of The Heart, These Three Are The Always Simultaneous Moods and Signs That May Tend To Appear.

The Devotee In The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart Discovers That The ordinary Struggle With concrete doubts, negative thoughts, emotional reactions, and grosser bodily discomforts Is Superseded By The True Spiritual Ordeal Of frontal Communion With My Spiritual Presence Of Self-Revealed “Bright” Love-Bliss, and By The Grace-Given Process Of Feeling Beyond The Primary Signs Of Doubt, Boredom, and Discomfort.

Therefore, Even Though The True Devotee In The First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart May Sometimes Be Obliged To Transcend The Lingering “Grosser” Resistance Of the body-mind, The Primary and Constant Ordeal Is The Ordeal Of Direct and Immediate Spiritual Communion With Me, and This Is Done On The Basis Of True and Basic psycho-physical Equanimity.

The Characteristic Mood and the Basic character of the egoic individual In The First Three Stages Of Life Are Developed In Terms Of What I Call “Vital”, “Peculiar”, and “Solid” personality Patterns. These Patterns Correspond, Respectively, To Reactive Strategies Of Either A Characteristically vital Kind Or A Characteristically emotional Kind Or A Characteristically mental Kind.

The Dominant Characteristics Of the “Vital” character Are Obsessive and Compulsive vital-physical self-Expression and The Chronic, Excessive, and Even Degenerative Dramatization Of bodily self-Indulgence. The “Vital” character Is Also Associated With Diminished emotional Capability, and it Is Generally Represented By Either mental Dullness Or A Chaotic Display Of the conceptual function.

The Dominant Characteristics Of the “Peculiar” character Are Excessively “Romantic” and Idealistic Expectations and The Loss Of Balance Via Chronic emotional Hypersensitivity and The Dramatization Of Exaggerated “Mood Swings”. The “Peculiar” character Is Also Associated With Diminished conceptual or intellectual Capability, and it Is Generally Represented By Either Suppressed Or Chaotically Displayed vital-physical functions.

The Dominant Characteristics Of the “Solid” character Are Hyperactivity Of the conceptual mind and The Chronic Dramatization Of A Profound and Even Suppressive Need To Control the psycho-physical self, and others, Especially Via The Efforts Of the conceptual mind and the effects Of merely conceptual Expression. The “Solid” character Is Also Associated With Diminished or Suppressed vital-physical activity or Capability, and it Is Generally Represented By A Suppression Of emotional Expression.

Even Though many individuals May Seem To Express themselves In A Complex Fashion, Combining Two or More Of These Chronic egoic Strategies, every egoic individual Is Basically Dominated By One Of These Three Reactive Designs. And The Characteristic Mood or Effort Determined By Each Design Dictates The Characteristic Expression Of bodily energy and human Aliveness Via The Region Of the throat. Thus, the “Solid” character Tends Toward Suppression Of bodily energy and human Aliveness. The “Vital” character Tends Toward A Chaotic Expression Of bodily energy and human Aliveness. And the “Peculiar” character Tends To Swing Between Chaotic and Suppressive Expressions Of bodily energy and human Aliveness.

Insofar As These egoic Strategies Simply Represent The ordinary and Spirit- Preventing Efforts Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life, They Must Be Observed, Understood, and Transcended During The Three Periods Of Intensive Listening and Hearing Practice, and The Capability Of Those egoic Strategies To Prevent Heart-Communion With The Living Spiritual Divine Is Finally Undone In The Eventual Awakening Of True Seeing. However, Insofar As These egoic Strategies Represent Only The Spirit- Diminishing Tendencies Of the humanly Adapted frontal personality Of The Spiritually Awakened Devotee, They May Continue To Be Responsibly Transcended and Released In The Truly and Fully Spiritually Active Practice Of The Way Of The Heart.

Deeper Than the head and the throat, and Central To the body-mind As A Whole, Is The Heart. In The Case Of The Seeing Devotee Practicing The Way Of The Heart In The Fully Established “Basic” Context Of The Fourth Stage Of Life, The Left and The Middle Regions Of The Heart Are functionally Evident, but The Right Side Of The Heart Is Only Latently Evident In the egoic individual Previous To The Transition To The Sixth Stage Of Life.

The Heart-Region Of the egoic individual Functions As The Primary Seat Of functional emotion and Of Spirit-Energy. And The Heart-Expression Is Retarded By the self-Contraction, So That It Becomes Characterized By A Range Of Non-Spiritual and Diminished Spiritual Signs, From The Absence Of Spiritual Awareness To The Spiritual “Disease” Of Diminished Spiritual Delight. And The self-Contracted Heart Is Also Characterized By A Range Of emotions Associated With Un-Love, or Non-Love, or ego-Based and Superficial Pseudo-Love, or Diminished Love.

The Spiritual Yoga Of Devotional self-Submission Of the frontal personality Is First To Purify, Rebalance, and Regenerate The head, throat, and Heart Regions Of The Frontal Line. In That Initial Process, Chronic Doubt, Boredom, and Discomfort, Love-Bliss-Diminishing Aspects Of “Vital”, “Peculiar”, and “Solid” character-Strategies, Love-Bliss-Diminishing Suppression or Chaos Of bodily energy and human Aliveness, and Love-Bliss-Diminishing emotional Expressions Of Un-Love and Non-Love and Pseudo-Love and Diminished Love, and All Other Forms Of Diminished Heart-Expression and Heart-Delight Are To Be Progressively Released, and These Are Responsively To Be Replaced By the mind Of Sat-Guru-Praise and God-Aware Happiness, and By Spiritual Equanimity, and By Fullness Of Both human Aliveness and Spirit-Life, and By The Heart-Radiant Disposition Of self-Transcending Love.

Once The Initial Spirit-Work Of The Way Of The Heart Has Become Significantly Effective In The Frontal Line Of the body-mind, The Spiritual Yoga Of Devotional self-Submission Of the frontal personality Can Then “Break The Navel”, and, Thus, Spiritually Purify, Rebalance, and Regenerate The Deeper or Base Regions Of The Frontal Line.

The Deeper or Base Regions Of the body-mind Are Associated With The Root-Reactivity Of the born personality. That Root-Reactivity Is Represented By Anger, Sorrow, and Fear. These Great and Base Reactions Are Not Commonly experienced in the daily course, and, Therefore, In General, They Do Not Directly and Effectively Either Prevent Or Diminish Spiritual Communion With The Divine Love-Bliss. The More Superficial Patterns, Including Occasional and Lesser Expressions Of Fear, Sorrow, and Anger, Are Commonly Indulged, but The Great Base Reactions Are Commonly Suppressed, Even Though They Are At The Root Of All Superficial Reactivity and All conventional Patterning.

Spiritually Untouched Anger, Sorrow, and Fear Are The Dark or Hidden Side Of The Heart, Whereas The Less Aggressive Expressions Of Fear, Sorrow, Anger, Un-Love, Non-Love, Pseudo-Love, and Diminished Love, As Well As The ordinary Chaos or Suppression Of bodily energy and human Aliveness, and Also Even Chronic Doubt, Boredom, and Discomfort Are The Commonly Dramatized Side Of The Heart. Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, It Is Only When The Deep Reactive Base Of The Heart Is Invaded By My Baptizing, Purifying, Rebalancing, and Regenerative Spiritual Presence That the frontal personality Is Most Fully Restored To Superior Equanimity, and To Optimum Clarity Of Awareness, and To Constantly Capable Feeling-Responsibility For mental, emotional, and physical Negativity, and To Truly Fundamental Love.

This Process Of Total frontal Invasion By The Spirit-Current Of Love-Bliss Does Not Itself Require The Most Debilitating Revelation Of Base Fear, Sorrow, and Anger, but The Process Directly Involves and Requires The Deep Opening Of The Base Regions Of The Frontal Line Of the body-mind To My Spirit-Presence Of Love-Bliss Itself. And The Fullest Restoration Of the frontal personality To The Divine Love-Bliss Itself Is The Primary Sign That Is To Be Realized In The Fully Established “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart.

Only When Chronic Anger, Sorrow, and Fear Are Capably, Directly, and Effectively Released Can It Be Said That The First Three Stages Of Life Are Complete. And Only When The Degrees Of ordinary Anger, Sorrow, and Fear That Prevent Heart-Communion With The Living Spiritual Divine Are Also Spiritually Released Can It Be Said That The Fourth Stage Of Life Has Truly and Fully Begun. Therefore, Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Spiritually Responsible Context Of The “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life Cannot Be Truly and Fully Established Until, By Grace, Chronic Fear, Sorrow, and Anger Are Transcended, and Until, By Grace, True Seeing Is Awakened or Established.

Fear Is The Primary Mood Of Separation. Fear Is Especially Associated With The First Stage Of Life and The Vital Shock Of birth. It Is Signalled By the gaping mouth, As If the mothers teat Were Suddenly Torn From the infant lips.

Fear Is Also The Principal Motivating Mood Of the “Solid” character. Paradoxically, the Obsessively self-Controlling and other-Controlling “Solid” character Is Founded On A Fear Of Being Controlled By others. And That Fear Is Originally Developed In the years of infancy, childhood, and adolescence, Generally In A Passive and Rather infantile Reaction Either To The Feeling Or To the Actual experience Of Being Too Much Controlled and Threatened By others, Especially adults.

Sorrow Is The Primary Mood Of the Rejected individual. Sorrow Is Especially Associated With The Second Stage Of Life, The Loss Of self-Security, and The Loss Of Power Over others On whom one Depends. It Is Signalled By the grimace, the downturned and puckered mouth, As In the eliminative anal grunt, The End-Game Of oral Dependency.

Sorrow Is Also The Principal Motivating Mood Of the “Peculiar” character. The Alternately Idealistically self-Controlled and Chaotically self-Indulgent “Peculiar” character Is Founded On A Basic and Sorrowful Feeling Of Being Neglected. The Chronic Sorrow Of the “Peculiar” character Is A Yearning To Be Effectively Touched, or Loved. It Is A Call and Even An Hysterical Need To Be Controlled, or Restored To Balance By A Positive Controlling Influence. And That Sorrowful Need Is Originally Developed In the years of infancy, childhood, and adolescence, Generally In An Hysterical and Rather childish Reaction Either To The Feeling Or To the Actual experience Of Being Neglected, Denied Love, and Denied A Positive Controlling Influence.

Anger Is The Primary Mood Of Reaction To All That Seems To Justify Fear and Sorrow. It Is Especially Associated With The Third Stage Of Life, The adolescent Struggle With The Motives Of Dependence and Independence, and The Aggressive Effort Toward genital Victory. It Is Signalled By the tortured mouth with gnashing teeth, The facial Display Of genital Shapes and genital Agony. Everything Of The First Three Stages Of Life Is Displayed In Common egoic Anger. Even egoic sex Is Full Of Rejection and Anger, Threatened By Loss and Sorrow, and Convinced Of Fearful Separation.

Anger Is Also The Principal Motivating Mood Of the “Vital” character. The “Vital” character Is Characteristically self-Indulgent, vitally, or physically. The Mood Of This Pattern Is Always Rather Rebellious. Indeed, Even the Most Apparently Carefree, self-pleasurizing “Vital” character Is Dramatizing Resistance and Refusal. The “Vital” character Is Founded On An Angry Reaction To Controls and Demands. The Characteristic Behavior Pattern Associated With the “Vital” character Is A Chronic Effort To Resist, Refuse, or Avoid The Controlling Influence Of others On The personal bodily Existence Of the conditional self. And That Angry Mood Is Originally Developed In the years of infancy, childhood, and adolescence, Generally In An Aggressive and Rather adolescent Reaction Either To The Feeling Or To the Actual experience Of Being Too Much Controlled and Threatened By others, Especially adults.

Truly human and adult Maturity Requires Transcendence Of The Chronic and Obsessive character Patterns Developed In the years of infancy, childhood, and adolescence. Truly human and adult Maturity Is The Achievement Of A Balance Between The Motive Toward Control Of the psycho-physical self and The Motive Toward Motion or Excitation Of the psycho-physical self. Truly human and adult Maturity Requires self-Control and A Willingness To Be Even physically Affected, emotionally Touched, mentally Influenced and Thus, To A Significant Degree, Controlled By others. Likewise, Truly human adulthood or Maturity Requires The Constant Exercise or Excitation Of The Motive Of Real Freedom.

The Tendency To perceive Existence As A Problem, or To conceive and suffer An Inherent Conflict Between Control and Freedom, Must Be Transcended In Wisdom. The Father-Force and The Mother-Force Must Both Be Discovered, Accepted, and Integrated Into The psycho-physical Patterns Of Your Own Real Existence. When That Integration Is Real and Stable, So That The human Pattern Of Your Own body-mind Is Basically Balanced, Intelligent, self-Disciplined, and Also Directly Communing With Spirit-Life, Then The Transition To Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Beyond the limits Of The First Three Stages Of Life Has Really Been Completed, and Practice Of The Way Of The Heart In The Spiritually Responsible Context Of The “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life Has Been Granted A Full and Stable Foundation. Therefore, It Is This Both human and Spiritual Foundation That Must Precede The Transition To The Formally Acknowledged First Actually Seeing Stage Of The Way Of The Heart.

There Is No Fullest Integration Of the frontal or ordinary human personality Until The Divine Spirit-Presence Fully Infuses the Surrendered body-mind With Love-Bliss. Therefore, By Grace, The Wandering and self-Contracted Heart Must Find Its Own True Father and Mother.

Even the Total body-mind Must Cling To The Divine Life-Light, Calming breath and mind In Love-Bliss, If the ego-self and others Are To Be Sublimed, All Well. Therefore, By Grace, The Wandering and self-Contracted Heart Must Find Its Own True Husband, The Father-Revealing and Mother-Revealing Son Of The Only Source Of all and All.

The Heart Must Surrender Itself In Listening Love To The Husbanding “Bright” Companion, and This Love-Surrender Must Become A Truly Hearing and Seeing Yoga Of Devotion.

The Heart That Hears and Sees Must Meet The Husbands Spirit-Mark, and Many Signs Must Appear Before The Work Is “Bright” and Done.
