THE DAWN HORSE TESTAMENT (1991)

Chapter 33

When You Hear Me and See Me, Give Your attention To My Bodily (Human) Form and Breathe My Spirit-Presence

Every Form (and Every Developmental-Stage) Of The Way Of The Heart (In Its Spiritual Fullness) Is Built Upon Two Fundamental Exercises, Performed In The self-Transcending Manner, In Meditation and In The General Context Of daily life. These Two Exercises Are The Conscious Process (Which Is The Primary Exercise) and Spirit-Conductivity (Which Is The Secondary or Supportive Exercise).

Through The Progressive and Artfully Combined Exercises Of The Conscious Process and Spirit-Conductivity (In The Spiritually Active Practice Of The Way Of The Heart), body, and emotion (and Feeling Itself), and breath, and speech, and all of mind (or of conceptual and perceptual thoughts), and attention itself Must Be Yielded or Relaxed Into The By Grace Revealed Spiritual (and, Ultimately, Transcendental) Fullness Of Divine Being.

In The Way Of The Heart, The Practice Of Spirit-Conductivity Itself Is (In Its Fundamental Form) An Exercise Of body, and emotion (and Feeling Itself), and Also breath, but Even speech, mind, and attention Also Become Submitted Into The By Grace Revealed Spirit-Current (and, Ultimately, Into The By Grace Revealed Transcendental and Even Divine Self-Condition Of Consciousness Itself) Whenever The Practice Of Spirit-Conductivity Is Itself Aligned and Submitted To The Primary Practice That Is The Conscious Process In The Way Of The Heart.

Therefore (Once You Have Become Prepared To Practice The Fundamental Form Of Spirit-Conductivity In The Way Of The Heart), You Must Yield or Relax the body Into The Spirit-Current, In The Frontal Line (Downwards, Toward the bodily base), and In The Spinal Line (Upwards, From the base of the body Toward The Crown Of the head).

In Addition, You Must Yield or Relax emotion (or The Very Feeling Heart Itself) and Also the breath itself Into The Spirit-Current, By Radiating Feeling-Energy Boundlessly, From The Heart, In all directions.

And You Must Exercise (or Otherwise Release or Follow) The Spirit-Current In The Circle Via the breath-Cycle (Either Via The Intentional Exercise Of the breath Or Else By Simply Observing and Freely Allowing the breath-Cycle In The Circle).

These Three Intentional Engagements Of The Spirit-Current Are (Generally) To Be Associated (In daily life and In Meditation) With Various bodily Locks and bodily Attitudes, Such As I Have (Herein) Described Them Relative To The (Active) Context Of sexual “Conscious Exercise” and Sexual Communion, and Relative To The Basic (and Relatively Passive) Circumstance Of Meditation.

And Any (or All) Of These Three Intentional Engagements Of The Spirit-Current May Be Relaxed or Released (or Otherwise Gone Beyond) In any moment Of Practice (Especially In moments or periods Of Meditation) In which The Conscious Process (and Spirit-Conductivity Itself) Progresses Into A Depth That Is Inherently (or Otherwise Progressively) Oblivious To The Various Degrees Of Such An Intentional Exercise. (And Spirit-Conductivity Itself Becomes Associated Primarily With The Right Side Of The Heart When Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Begins In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life, and It Also Becomes Associated With Amrita Nadi When Practice Of The Way Of The Heart Enters Into The Divinely Self-Realized Context Of The Seventh Stage Of Life.)

Likewise, and In any moment Of Spirit-Conductivity In The Way Of The Heart (In The Context Of Either The Fourth Or The Fifth Or The Sixth Stage Of Life), You Must (Primarily) Yield or Relax speech, mind, and attention Into The (By Grace Revealed) Spirit-Current (and, Ultimately, Into The By Grace Revealed Transcendental Condition Of Consciousness Itself), and This Exercise Is (Generally, or Otherwise At Random, and Especially In The Context Of Meditation) To Be Associated With (and Guided By) The Conscious Process Of Either self-Enquiry (and Re-Cognition) Or A Form Of Spiritually Activated (or Advanced) True Prayer Or (As An Option At Practicing Stage Six Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart) Feeling-Enquiry. And Any and Every Such Practice Requires The (Primary) Concentration Of speech, mind, and attention In The Conscious Process (and, Generally, In The Process Of Spirit-Conductivity), Even (Eventually) To The Ultimate Degree Of Merely Witnessing, or Standing Prior To, all conditions, Inherently Indifferent To Whether they Are Positive Or Negative Or arising at all.

In The Fully Spiritually Activated (or Truly Seeing) Stages (and Also As Hearing-Based Spiritual Sensitivity and Spiritual Conductivity Develop In The Context Of The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage) Of The Way Of The Heart (Whether In Its Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Or In Its Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Form), The Fundamental Yoga Of Spirit-Conductivity (In My God-Revealing, or Truth-Revealing, Spirit-Presence) Is Fully Made Of The Three Parts (or Three Exercises) I Have Indicated.

Thus, The First and Most Fundamental Part, Form, or Exercise Of The Truly Seeing Yoga Of Spirit-Conductivity Is Heart-Submission (or self-Transcending Feeling-Radiation, Transcending all conventional and Reactive emotions, and Generated From The Heart, In all directions, Boundlessly, or To Infinity). This Is The Primary or Senior Part, Form, or Exercise Of Such Spirit-Conductivity Practice, and It Is (In The Truly Seeing Stages, and, More and More, In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage, Of The Developing Process Of The Way Of The Heart) The Natural (and The Original and Unobstructed) Heart-Attitude, To Be Practiced At all times, In Meditation and daily life.

The Second (or Second Most Important) Part, Form, or Exercise Of The Truly Seeing Yoga Of Spirit-Conductivity Is Persistent Relaxation Of the body Into The Spirit-Current, Via the bodily base, Along the spinal axis, and Toward The Crown Of the head. (And, In The Technically “Elaborate” Case Of Mahamantra Meditation, As Well As In The Case Of self-Enquiry During The Same “Elaborately” Technical Ascending Stages, and, Also, In The Case Of Either True Prayer Or self-Enquiry In The Spontaneously Ascending Stages Of The Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, “Lay Congregationist” Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, This Exercise Also Generally Includes The Concentration and Submission Of attention At The Ajna Door.) If This Second Exercise Of Spirit-Conductivity Becomes A Right and Constant Practice (In Meditation and daily life), The Spinal Line (From the bodily base) Will Tend To Remain Naturally Polarized To The Brain Core, and The Frontal Line (From the top of the head) Will Tend Naturally To Remain Polarized To the bodily base, So That the frontal personality Is Generally Relaxed and Free Of Stress, and The Frontal Line Operates Without Obstruction (Grounded In The bodily “Battery”, or the “crown” of the lower abdomen, Approximately one and one-half inches Below the umbilical scar, and With the solar plexus Open and Expanded).

The Third (or Third Most Important) Part, Form, or Exercise Of The Truly Seeing Yoga Of Spirit-Conductivity Is Spirit-Conductivity Via lung breathing Exercises. This Exercise Is Built Upon and Intended To Support and Extend The Work Of The First Two Parts or Exercises. The Exercise Of lung-breathing Spirit-Conductivity Is (Generally) To Be Frequently (or Randomly) Engaged During The Spiritually Activated Exercise Of (Either Technically “Elaborate” Or Technically “Simpler”) self-Enquiry, and It Is (Generally) To Be Frequently (or Randomly, and, In The Case Of The Technically “Elaborate” Prayer Of Remembrance, and Technically “Elaborate” Da-Om Japa, Even Repetitively) Engaged During The Spiritually Activated (or Advanced) Exercise Of Any By Me Given Form Of True Prayer (Including The Exercise Of The “Lay Congregationists” Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, True Prayer). Likewise, The Exercise Of lung-breathing Spirit-Conductivity Is (Even, Sometimes, By Itself) To Be Frequently (or Randomly) Engaged In The Context (and ordinary course) Of daily life. (And, Occasionally, or whenever Frontal, or Descending, Conductivity Must Be Especially Emphasized, In Order To Re-Vitalize the body, or In Order To Re-Balance A Too Upward Tendency, breathing-Conductivity May, Usually Only Briefly, Be Used To Direct the Natural bodily energy, and The Living Spirit-Current, Via Both inhalation and exhalation, To The bodily “Battery”, and, Perhaps, Even Via The bodily “Battery”, and Through the legs, Into the soles of the feet.) However (and Unlike The First Two Parts Of The Intentional Spirit-Conductivity Exercise, Which Must Be Rather Constant and Persistent, Except As Deepening and Deep Meditation Develops), lung-breathing Spirit-Conductivity Is (Generally, In The Case Of self-Enquiry, and In The Case Of Most Forms Of By Me Given True Prayer) Only An Occasional or Random Exercise (and It Is, In Any Case, Progressively Abandoned In Deepening and Deep Meditation).

Until Hearing-Based Spirit-Conductivity Begins To Develop, By Grace, In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, A Similar (but More Rudimentary, or Not Yet Directly Spiritual, or Not Yet Fully Spiritually Responsible) Three-Part Exercise Of Conductivity Is Also To Be Practiced By All Student-Beginners, Beginning “Lay Congregationists”, and Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (and This Three-Part Exercise Of Rudimentary Conductivity Is, As Must Also Be The Case With All Forms Of Actual Spirit -Conductivity In The Way Of The Heart, To Be Practiced In Constant Conjunction With The Appropriate and Progressive Demonstration Of The Most Basic Exercise Of Conductivity In The Form Of The Original, and Most Basic, functional, practical, relational, and Cultural Disciplines That Are The Foundation Of All Practice In The Way Of The Heart).

In The Case Of Student-Beginners and Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners and Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, and Also all those “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners and “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart who (In The Context Of The Beginnings Of The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage Of The Way Of The Heart) Are Not Yet (Even To Any Degree) Spiritually Active In their Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, The Three-Part Exercise Of Conductivity Is Specifically One Of Conductivity Of the (Pervasive and Objective) Natural ( etheric , or pranic , and bodily-experienced ) energy , Rather Than Fully Presumed (and Hearing-Based, and Fully Heart-Responsible) Conductivity Of The By Grace Revealed (and, Ultimately, Perfectly Subjective) Spirit-Current. Indeed, In The Way Of The Heart, The Direct and Potentially Complete Responsibilities For Actual (and Truly Hearing-Based) Spirit -Conductivity Can Be (and Are To Be) Directly and Fully Presumed Only By (At First) Practitioners In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage Of The Way Of The Heart who Are, By Grace, Beginning To Become Sensitive and Responsive To My Spiritual Blessing-Presence, and (Thereafter, and Formally) By Any and All Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart who Are Formally Acknowledged To Be Practicing The Way Of The Heart On The True and Full Basis Of The Actual (and Necessarily Devotional) Heart-Seeing Of Me (and Not Merely and Only On The Basis Of One or Another Degree Of psycho-physical Sensitivity To The psycho-physical Effects Of My Spiritual Presence and My Spiritual Blessing).

For All Student-Beginners, All Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, All Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners, and All Not Yet Spiritually Sensitive Would-Be-Seeing Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart, The First and Most Basic Exercise Of The Three-Part Exercise Of Conductivity Is Heart-Submission (or self-Transcending Feeling-Radiation, Transcending all conventional and Reactive emotions, and Generated From The Heart, In all directions, Boundlessly, or To Infinity). And Such Is (For All Student-Beginners, All Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, All Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners, and All Not Yet Spiritually Sensitive Would-Be Seeing Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) The Natural (and The Original and Unobstructed) Heart-Attitude, Which Is To Be Practiced By Means Of The Responsive Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily (Human) Form (and, Tacitly, My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State), and Which Is To Be Practiced At all times, In Meditation and daily life.

The Second (or Second Most Important) Part, Form, or Exercise Of The Basic Yoga Of Conductivity For All Student-Beginners, All Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, All Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners, and All Not Yet Spiritually Sensitive Would-Be-Seeing Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Is Persistent Relaxation Of the body (Via the bodily base) Along the spinal axis (Toward The Crown Of the head), and This Is To Be Practiced Toward The Simple Result Of Right Natural Polarization Of The Spinal Line (From the bodily base, Toward and To The Crown Of the head), and (Simultaneously, and Spontaneously) Right Natural Polarization Of The Frontal Line (From the top of the head, Toward and To the bodily base), Which I Have (Earlier) Also Described In The Case Of Practitioners In The Seeing Stages (and In The Case Of Spiritually Sensitive Practitioners In The Would-Be-Seeing, or Progressively Seeing, Stage) Of The Way Of The Heart.

And The Third (or Third Most Important) Part, Form, or Exercise Of Conductivity That Is To Be Practiced By All Student-Beginners, All Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, All Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners, and All Not Yet Spiritually Sensitive Would-Be-Seeing Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart Is Conductivity Via lung-breathing Exercises Of Feeling and breath (or The “Conscious Exercise” Of inhalation-Reception, In Descent, Via The Frontal Line Of the body, To The bodily “Battery”, Assisted By Easy Upward Tensing Of the bodily base, and Followed By exhalation-Release, Likewise Assisted By Easy Upward Tensing Of the bodily base, and, As Required, With the Feeling-breath Either Released and Radiated Diffusely Within, and In all directions Via, the entire body, Or, In Special Instances, when Frontal, or Descending, Conductivity Must Be Emphasized In Order To Re-Vitalize the body, or In Order To Re-Balance A Too Upward Tendency, Relaxed and Radiated, From The bodily “Battery”, and Via the legs, Into the soles of the feet, Or, Otherwise, As Appropriate, Released Into The General Pattern, or Line, Of Ascent, Via The Spinal Line Of the body, but, In Any Case, Without Any Strategic Concentration Of attention In any part or Any Station In or Above the head).

My early-life Devotees In The Way Of The Heart Are (Even, Progressively, and Most Simply, In The Context Of The First Stage Of Life, and, More and More, In The Context Of The Second and The Third Stages Of Life) To Engage A Simpler Technical Version Of This Three-Part “Conscious Exercise” (or Basic Early Practice) Of Conductivity. My early-life Devotees In The Way Of The Heart (and Also All Student-Novices, Formally Approaching The Way Of The Heart) Should Begin The “Conscious Exercise” Of Conductivity By Adapting To The Practice Of Heart-Submission To Me, and (Thus and Thereby) To The Practice Of Feeling-Relinquishment Of self-Contraction, and (Thereupon) The Radiating Of Heart-Feeling (Boundlessly, To Infinity), and Then (or On That Primary Basis) they Should Also Adapt To The Practice Of Relaxing the body-mind Along The Spinal Axis (base Toward Crown), and, Thirdly, My early-life Devotees (and Also All Student-Novices, Formally Approaching The Way Of The Heart) Should Also Adapt (Progressively) To Simple lung-breathing Exercises Of Feeling and breath (At First, In The Relatively Non-Technical Form Of Simplest, or Rudimentary and Simply Felt, inhalation-Reception and exhalation-Release, and, Then, In Due Course, In The Form Of inhalation-Reception, In Descent, Toward the bodily base, and exhalation-Release, Radiating Feeling-energy Diffusely, Within and, In all directions, Via the entire body). And Maturing early-life Devotees (Advancing In The Context Of The Third Stage Of Life) Should Adapt To The Somewhat More Technical Version Of The Three-Part Exercise Of Conductivity As I Have (Herein) Described It For adult Student-Beginners (and Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, and Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners, and Not Yet Spiritually Sensitive Would-Be-Seeing Practitioners) Of The Way Of The Heart. (However, Student-Novices, Formally Approaching The Way Of The Heart, Should Not Engage That Somewhat More Technical Version Of The Three-Part Exercise Of Conductivity Until they Formally Begin Formal Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, Beginning As Formally Acknowledged Student-Beginners.)

As I Have Already Indicated, Simple Conductivity, or The “Conscious Exercise” Of Conductivity Practiced By All Student-Beginners, All Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Practitioners, All Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Practitioners, and All Not Yet Spiritually Sensitive Would-Be-Seeing Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart (and Also By All early-life Practitioners Of The Way Of The Heart) Is To Be Presumed and Engaged (By My early-life Devotee, My Student-Beginner Devotee, My Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Devotee, My Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Devotee, or My Not Yet Spiritually Sensitive Would-Be-Seeing Devotee) Simply (or Always Most Basically) As An Exercise Of the Universal etheric, or pranic, energy-field that Naturally Pervades the body. However, Because Such Conductivity Practice Is Done In, and As A Part Of, Responsive Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily (Human) Form, and, Tacitly (or As and To The Degree Revealed), My Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence and My Very (and Inherently Perfect) State, Spontaneous Evidence Of My Transmitted Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence May, By Grace, Appear Even To My early-life Devotee, My Student-Beginner Devotee, My Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Devotee, or My Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Devotee. In Any Case, and Even Though Some Spontaneous Evidence Of Spirit-Conductivity May Thus (By Grace) Appear Even In The Case Of Any early-life Devotee, Student-Beginner Devotee, Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Devotee, or Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Devotee In The Way Of The Heart, The Level Of Presumed Responsibility (For The Technicalities and The Total Culture Of Practice In The Way Of The Heart) Should Otherwise Remain Simply That (As Indicated) Of An early-life Devotee, or A Student-Beginner Devotee, or A Beginning “Lay Congregationist” Devotee, or A Beginning “Lay Renunciate” Devotee. (And Even A “Lay Congregationist” Devotee who Both Hears Me and Sees Me, and who, Therefore, Generally, and Intentionally, or Otherwise Spontaneously, and Randomly, Practices The Identical Technical, and Fully Spiritual, Conductivity Exercises Practiced By My Devotees who Practice The Technically “Fully Elaborated”, and, Otherwise, Generally More Intensive, Form Of The Way Of The Heart, Must, Because his or her Practice Is Less Intensive, and, Perhaps, Simpler, or Even Most Simple, In Its Basic Approach, Maintain his or her Chosen, and Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”, Form Of The Conscious Process Given By Me For The Use Of “Lay Congregationists”, Unless he or she Applies, and Qualifies, and Is, Via Formal Acknowledgement, Formally Accepted For Practice As A Truly Both Hearing and Seeing Devotee In The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart.)

The Technical Exercise Of Conductivity In The Spiritually Awakened (or Actually Seeing) Stages Of The Way Of The Heart Is Itself “Spirit-Breathing”, or Total (and Truly Devotional) Participation Of the body-mind In The Natural (or Naturally Structured) Movement (or, In The Context Of The Sixth Stage Of Life, The Native Heart-Position) Of The (By Grace Revealed) Living Spirit-Current, Whether Or Not lung-breathing Practices Are (At the moment) Engaged. Concentrated Use Of lung-breathing Conductivity Exercises Is, In The Way Of The Heart, Generally (or As Appropriate) Useful In daily life (To Relax, Open, and Rightly Polarize The Frontal and Spinal Lines), and Such Is Also Useful (Even daily, In Every Occasion Of Formal Meditation) As A General Preparation For Deepening (and Deep) Meditation, but (Even Then, and Otherwise) The Primary Means For “Breathing” (or Otherwise Conducting) the Natural etheric energy and (In The Case Of those who Are Sensitive To My Directly Transmitted Spirit-Presence) The Spirit-Current Are Constant Heart-Submission and Persistent (and Total) bodily Relaxation Into the Universal etheric energy-field and (In The Case Of those who Are Sensitive To My Directly Transmitted Spirit-Presence) The Spirit-Current, At and From The Heart, and Also Along The Spinal Axis, base Toward Crown, and Also In The Pattern Of The Circle, Descending In The Frontal Line and Ascending Along The Spinal Line.

In The (Potential) Ascending Stages Of The Way Of The Heart, There Must Be Constant Submission Of attention To Me (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person and Condition) Via The (By Grace Revealed) Spirit-Current At and, Perhaps Eventually, Above The Ajna Door, Whether Or Not There Is Extensive Present bodily Awareness. Indeed, In The Context Of That Meditative Process Of Ascent, Even the body itself Will At times Relinquish The lung-breathing Process In Spontaneous Kumbhak, or Temporary Suspension Of lung-breathing, In Which Spirit-Conductivity Continues Via A Natural (or Naturally Structured and Determined) Process (Whereby attention Is Carried Above, and Is Even, Perhaps, Absorbed In The Fully Ascended Matrix Of The Gracefully Revealed Spirit-Current).

In The (Potential) Ascending Stages (and Even In Any Of The Progressive Developmental Stages) Of The Way Of The Heart, The Conscious Process (and Also The Technical Practice Of Conductivity) Can (and Often Will, and Even Often Should) Be Engaged Without Any Intentional or Technical Association With The lung-breathing Cycle. However, whenever Any Form Of The Conscious Process Is Engaged In The General Pattern (or Context) Of The Circle Of the body-mind, It Will Often (and Naturally) Tend To Fall Into Association With The Spontaneous Exercise Of lung-breathing Conductivity, and This Natural Association Can (or Even Should, At Least At Random) Also Be Made Intentionally. Thus, For Example, Either self-Enquiry Or The Mahamantra, Neither Of Which Is (Except In The Case Of The Mahamantra “Da-Om”, In The Practice Of Da-Om Japa) To Be Synchronized With every breath, May, In The Context Of The Ascending Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, and Especially In Meditation, Be Engaged On any inhalation or exhalation, While Focusing attention Upwards and At The Ajna Door. And The Mahamantra (Generally), and Even Any Other By Me Given Form Of Ascending True Prayer, Would, Most Basically and Most Often, Be Thus Engaged While inhaling To The Ajna Door, Whereas self-Enquiry Will Tend To Occur At Random, or In Random Conjunction With every part of the breath-Cycle and all the gestures of attention.
