By Listening To Me, By Hearing Me, and By Seeing Me,
Purify body and mind Of self-Contraction

In The True (and Characteristic) Course Of The Frontal
Yoga In The Way Of The Heart, There Will Be Occasional
“Surges” (or Spontaneous Invasions) Of The Spirit-Current
(or Spirit-Energy) In The Frontal Line. (These Surges Of
Spiritual Energy May Even Pass, Perceptibly or
Imperceptibly, From The Frontal Line Into The Spinal Line,
Thus Completing The Circle.) Such Surges May Be Weak or
Strong. They May Produce yawning and General Relaxation, and
They May Otherwise Reveal or Yield Feelings Of General
Pleasure, Happiness, or Love-Bliss. Frontal Surges May Also
Be Accompanied or Followed By temporary symptoms of mental,
emotional, and physical discomfort, pain, fever, and even
physical disease. (Such phenomena, If they Are Attendant
Upon The Real Spiritual Process, Tend To Come and Go, In
Cycles Of Relative comfort and discomfort. As Such, They Are
Merely Purifying Episodes, Shown Through The Evidence Of
psycho-physical Release, Rebalance, and Rejuvenation.)
Occasionally, There May Even Be an experience that Feels
Like A Kind Of electric “Shock” or “Jolt”, That Briefly
Energizes the body Beyond ordinary Tolerance. In and By All
Of This, the human character Is To Be Positively Changed
(psychically, mentally, emotionally, and physically) Through
The Invasion Of the frontal personality By The Divine (and
By Grace Revealed) Spirit-Current.

Among All Of These Signs There Should Appear Progressive
Evidence Of What I Have, Since Childhood, Called “The
Thumbs”. Beginning In The “Basic” Context Of The Fourth
Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, There Should Be At
Least Occasional experience Of An Intense Invasion Of The
Frontal Line By The Grace-Given Spirit-Force, Beginning At
the top of the head and Descending Into The lower vital
Region To the bodily base. The Pressure (or Invasive Force)
Of This Event May Be Rather (and Even Happily) Overwhelming,
and It Must Be Allowed. At Last, It Is Not Possible (Nor
Would You Wish) To Defend Your psycho-physical self Against
This Invading Pressure. It Feels Like A Solid and Yet Fluid
Mass Of Force, Like A Large Hand All Made Of Thumbs,
Pressing Down, Engorging the throat, Penetrating the mind,
the emotional core, and the physical body. This Simple and
Most Basic Form Of “The Thumbs” Is a Necessary, Although
Generally Only Occasional, experience Associated With
Spirit-Baptism. It Is The Divine Goddess-Power and
Husbanding Grace At Work. (And “The Thumbs”, Once
Established, May Continue To Be experienced, On Occasion,
Even In The Later Advanced and Ultimate Stages Of Life In
The Way Of The Heart.)

As The Spiritual Process Develops Toward The (Possible)
Transition From The “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life To The
“Advanced” Fourth Stage Of Life, In The Way Of The Heart,
the Simple and Most Basic experience Of “The Thumbs” Should
Continue To Occur On Occasion, and, On One or More
Occasions, the experience Of “The Thumbs” May Appear In its
Most Extended and Complete Form. In That Case, The
Descending Spiritual Fullness Will Completely Overwhelm the
ordinary frontal or human sense Of bodily Existence. The
Spirit-Current Will Move Fully Down To the bodily base, and
It Will Then Turn About and Pass Into The Spinal Line With
Such Force That You Will Feel Utterly Intoxicated, and There
Will Be The Feeling That the body Is Somehow Rotating
Forward and Down From The Crown Of the head As Well As
Backward and Up From the base of the spine. This Rotation
Will Seem Suddenly To Complete Itself, and the experience
Will Suddenly Be One Of Feeling Released From the gross
physical body, So That You Feel You Are Present Only As an
energy body (Even the etheric form, Otherwise Associated
With and Conformed To the gross physical body, but Now, By
Grace, Infused By and Conformed To The Divine
Spirit-Energy), and You Will Feel Your psycho-physical self
To Be Somehow Spherical In Shape, Centerless (Empty or Void
Of Center, mind, and Familiar ego-self) and Boundless (As If
Even bodiless, or Without form), Although Somehow and
Partially or Potentially Also Yet Centered, Defined, and
limited By The Essence Of form, body, mind, and ego-self.
The ordinary References Of the body-mind and the environment
Will Not Make Much Sense or Affect this experience Of “The
Thumbs” In Any Significant Fashion, Although There May Be
Some Superficial Awareness Of the body, the room, and so
forth. This experience Will Last For a few moments or
minutes. And Just When this experience Has Become Most
Pleasurable, So That You Would Have it Continue
Indefinitely, the ordinary sense of the body-mind Will

This Complete experience Of “The Thumbs” Is A
Transitional Samadhi (Like Fifth Stage conditional
Nirvikalpa Samadhi and Sixth Stage Jnana Samadhi).
Therefore, its Significance Is Not In the experience itself,
but In its Effect (or In The More Mature Process That it
Allows or Indicates). That Is To Say, it Is An Indication
That The Process Of self-Transcendence Is Moving On From
Concentration In the frontal personality To The Next
Immediately Possible Developmental Stage, Which Involves The
Process Of Ascent To The Ajna Door Via The Spinal Line.

Either The Samadhi Of “The Thumbs” (Which Is the
experience Of “The Thumbs” In Its Most Extended and Complete
Form) Or Else the experience Of “The Thumbs” In Its Simple
and Most Basic Form Will, By Grace, Spontaneously Appear In
The Full (or Fully Developed) Frontal Course Of Spiritual
Practice In The Way Of The Heart. Therefore, In The Way Of
The Heart, The Sign Of “The Thumbs” (In Either Of Its Two
Forms, and Along With Evidence Of Real and Stable human and
Spiritual Equanimity In the daily life of the frontal
personality) Is One Of The Necessary Indicators That Must
Precede The Transition From The “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life
To The “Advanced” Fourth Stage Of Life (or Even The Early
Transition To The Sixth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The
Heart, Directly From The Point Of Basic Maturity In The
“Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart).

The Sign Of “The Thumbs” Is One Of The Primary
experiential Signs Of The Transcendence Of Bondage and
Confinement To the frontal personality and the gross bodily
idea of ego-self. The Sign Of “The Thumbs” Indicates That
The Knots In The Frontal Line (In The Crown Of the head, the
Total brain, the throat, the heart, the solar plexus, the
abdomen, the genitals, and the anal-perineal area) Are
Opened (At Least Temporarily) To The Grace-Given
Spirit-Current (and Can, By Right Practice, Be Responsibly
Submitted To The Point Of Such Openness In The Context Of
daily living). The Sign Of “The Thumbs” Is Also An
Indication That The Primary Knot or Root-Contraction In The
Deep or Base Region Of the body-mind, From the solar plexus
To the bodily base, Has Been, and Can Continue To Be, Opened
To The Grace-Given Spirit-Current, So That Great Fullness Of
Love-Bliss Is Established Deep In the body, the emotional
being, and the mind of the frontal personality. (And When
That Love-Bliss Is Overflowing, The Course Of Ascent May Be
Revealed and Established, or, If There Is An Early
Spontaneous Awakening Of The Witness-Consciousness, The Way
Of The Heart May Open Directly To The Course Associated With
The Sixth Stage Of Life.)

The Sign Of “The Thumbs” Has Often Appeared To Me, Even
In My Childhood. In The Course Of My Years Of Practice, I
Gradually Permitted “The Thumbs” To Achieve Its Full and
Complete Form. Even A Full Decade Before The Great Event Of
My Divine Re-Awakening, I Enjoyed The Spontaneous Experience
Of Spiritual Regeneration Via The Regeneration Of The Total
Mechanism (or Process) Associated With “The Thumbs”, but
(Even In Such A Case) the frontal personality Must Be
“Worked” (or Purified, and its Knots Un-Tied) By The
Spirit-Current Of “The Thumbs”, Until the frontal
personality and The Frontal Line Cease To Obstruct or
Prevent The Advancement Of The Great Process. Therefore,
Even After The Spontaneous Regeneration Of The Process Of
“The Thumbs” (or The Regeneration Of The Spiritual Process
In The Frontal Line), It Was Yet Required Of Me To Continue
To Struggle With the limits of the frontal personality For
Some Years Before I (or the body-mind) Would Allow The Full
Samadhi Of “The Thumbs” and, More Importantly, The Ultimate
“Work” Of “The Thumbs”.

In My Own Case, The Full Samadhi Of “The Thumbs” Did Not
Begin To Appear Until I Began To Practice The “Work” Of
Surrender (or The Intentional Opening Of The Frontal Line To
Receive The Spirit-Force) In The Company Of My First
Spiritual Teacher (and Spirit-Baptizer). However, The
Struggle With The Frontal Yoga Did Not Become Fruitful (To
The Degree Of Transition To The Yoga Of The Spinal Line)
Until Struggle Itself (or The physical, emotional, and
mental Effort Of Surrender) Was Transcended (In and By The
Inherently self-Transcending Heart-Response To The
Spiritually Self-Revealing Reality). Therefore, That
Transcendence Of The Effort Of Surrender Was Not The Result
Of Strategic Non-Effort (or Even Any False Effort), but It
Was The Spontaneous Evidence Of Simple (and Yet Profound)
Responsive Identification With The Revealed Spirit-Current
Itself (and Responsive Identification With The Total
Self-Revelation Of The Spiritual, Transcendental, and,
Ultimately, Divine Condition).

As With Me, So For My Devotees. The Process Signified and
Initiated By The Sign Of “The Thumbs” Necessarily Involves
Intelligent, Intentional, and Otherwise Spontaneous
Relinquishment Of Un-Happy Identification With gross bodily,
emotional, and mental states. This Relinquishment Takes
Place Through Spontaneous Identification With the subtle
(etheric) energy body that Envelops the gross body, and
Spontaneous Identification With The By Grace Revealed
Spirit-Current Itself (Which Pervades both the etheric
energy body and the gross physical body, As Well As Every
Other Level Of the conditionally Manifested personality and
the Cosmic worlds). And All Of This Is Initiated (and
Accomplished) By The Divine Spirit-Presence Itself (If Only
My Devotee Responds To Me In Love, and This To The Degree Of
Constant Free Communion With My Mere and Blessing

Therefore, In The Way Of The Heart, The (Possible)
Transition From The “Basic” Fourth Stage Of Life To The
“Advanced” Fourth Stage Of Life Is Not Fully Indicated Until
The Complete Frontal Process and The Kinds Of phenomenal
Signs I Have Described Have Become Fully Evident. And The
Necessary Signs Include Real and Stable Evidence Of frontal
Equanimity (Both human and Spiritual), Evidence Of The Full
and Stable Awakening Of Spinal Conductivity (Of The
Spirit-Current), and Either Simple and Basic (but Really
Effective) Evidence Of the experience Of “The Thumbs” Or
Fully Extended and Complete Evidence Of The Samadhi Of “The
Thumbs”. And If A Transition Is To Be Made Directly From The
Point Of Basic Maturity In The “Basic” Context Of The Fourth
Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart To Practice Of The Way
Of The Heart In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life, The
Same Complete Frontal Process and The Same phenomenal Signs
Must Be Demonstrated, Although There May Be less experience
Of Significant Spinal Spirit-Conductivity (Especially In The
Form Of The Motive Of attention To Ascend), and the
experience Of “The Thumbs” May Be Limited To The Simple and
Basic Form, but There Must Also Be Clear and Stable and
Native and Free Identification With The Witness-Position Of

In Every Case, The “Work” Must Continue Until The “Work”
Is Done.
