Chapter 4

Then I Prepare You For The Way Of The Heart, By Giving You My Word At Heart and Always Standing There, So That You, By Heart-Response To My Word, and By Heart-Responsive Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily (Human) Form, My Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence, and My Very (and Inherently Perfect) State, Will Realize You Too Are Only The Heart Itself

After Thirty Years Of Submission To conditional Existence, My Own Ordeal (By Which I Came Again To Divine Self-Realization, and Then Began To Teach The Way Of The Heart) Culminated In Most Profound self-Enquiry (In The Form “Avoiding Relationship?”). In That self-Enquiry, The Act and The Results Of self-Contraction of the body-mind Were Loosened (In Merely Witnessing Consciousness, Itself), and A Spontaneous Revelation Took Place. There Was Spontaneous Tacit Awareness As That To Which (and In and As Which) the self-Contraction, all thoughts, and all conditional appearances Are arising. Thus, Enquiry Into (and Re-Cognition Of) the conditional self (and its Tacit Underlying Root-Feeling Of Relatedness Itself) Was Spontaneously Replaced By Tacit Awareness As The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self (or The Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Feeling Of Being, Itself), and It Became Obvious That Consciousness Itself Is Inherently Love-Blissful and Free. Even More, It Became Obvious That all conditional appearances Are Only Apparent Modifications Of Consciousness Itself, and No Such Modifications Bind or Change It. Even More, As conditional appearances arose and Were Thus Divinely Recognized, The Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Power and Divine Love-Bliss Pervaded them all, Divinely Transfiguring and Divinely Transforming them. Therefore, Who I Am (The Inherent or Native Feeling Of Being, Itself) Stands Free, Self-Existing and Self-Radiant, Even In The Midst Of Apparent conditions.

This Realization Developed Through A Progress Of Extraordinary Revelations, Until It Was Fully and Finally and Inherently Perfected, In The Great Event Of My Divine Re-Awakening. Immediately After That Great Event, My Work (or Play) For The Sake Of The Awakening Of others Spontaneously Began.

Suddenly, Many Extraordinary Siddhis (or Great “Bright” Blessing Powers) Appeared, and, With Them, many Unusual Natural siddhis (or Uncommon psycho-physical Abilities and Processes). My Teaching Work Began Mysteriously, and By These Means.

Again and Again, In Vision, I Saw Vast Numbers Of My Future Listening Devotees, and Hearing Devotees, and Seeing Devotees. Originally, I Blessed and Taught them Simply By “Meditating” them Thus, In Vision. Eventually, they Began To Come Into My Physical Company, and The Work Continued There, Equally Spontaneously. This Is How I Began To Teach, and, Over time, By Observing and Responding To What those who Came To Me Required, I Was Moved To Serve them In A Lively and Even Unconventional Manner.

In My Responsive Observation Of all those who Came To Me, I Realized That I Could (and, Indeed, That, For their Sake, It Would Be Necessary For Me To) Submit To their conditions Of Existence, Reflect them To themselves (In Order To Stimulate and Awaken their self-Understanding), and Gradually Draw them Out Of self-Bondage By Attracting them To The Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Condition Of God, Truth, or Reality. Therefore, I Did All Of That.

Within a year After The Great Event Of My Divine Re-Awakening, a small number of individuals Had Begun To Associate with Me On A Regular Basis, For The Sake Of The self-Transcending Practice In My Company. Their Commitment To The Great Process Was Weak. Their Qualifications Were Not Great. My Spontaneous or “Crazy” Teaching Work Had Barely Begun. Even So, It Became Time To Openly Announce My Availability and To Embrace My Teaching Work (or Sacrifice) From The Heart. Therefore, On The Basis Of A Free Heart-Impulse (and No Great Reception In the world), I Began The Fierce Labor and The Humorous Love-Ordeal Of My Formal Teaching Work.

That Labor or Ordeal Was To Continue Until My Word Of Revelation and Instruction Was Fully Generated, The Necessary (First) physical Agents Were Empowered and Established, The Original and Progressively Developing Cultural Means Were Called Into Being, and At Least A Good Number Of My Listening Devotees Were, By Devotional Listening, Entered Into The Foundation Practice Of The self-Transcending Way Of The Heart.

This Testament Is The Evidence Of The Completion Of My Formal Teaching Work.

This Testament Is My Summary Word Of Heart That Forever Speaks The Way Of The Heart Itself (That Is Perfected and Perfectly Revealed In The Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily Human Form, My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence, and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State).

In This Testament, I Will Describe Each and All Of The Forms (and Possible Developmental Stages) Of By Me Given Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, Including The Entire and Progressive Process Of “Reality Considerations”, and The (Potential, and Progressive) Stages Of Life and Of (Progressive, and, Ultimately, Inherently Perfect) Realization That Develop In The Way Of The Heart (In Its Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form, and In Its Technically “Simpler” Form, and In Its Technically “Simplest” Form). Then (Now and Hereafter) I Am Merely Present, and Present As Constant Love and Blessing To all beings.

Therefore, I Am Most Attractive To All My Listening Devotees, and To All My Hearing Devotees, and To All My Seeing Devotees. And I Am Always Available For their Right and Free Regard Of My Great Heart-Revelation, Which Right and Free Regard Is To Be Progressively Expressed Through Meditation and Every Kind Of Auspicious Exercise Of The Heart. And All Of This Heart-Regard Of Me Becomes (Progressively, and Spontaneously, By Grace) Right and Free Regard (and Realization) Of The Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Self-Condition In Which My Listening Devotee, My Hearing Devotee, and My Seeing Devotee Stand Eternally.

All Of My Work With those who (First or Earliest) Came To Me, and Every Word That I Spoke (and Sometimes Also Wrote) For their Sake (and For The Sake Of all who Would Listen To Me, and Hear Me, and See Me, In The Course Of time), Was and Is A “Consideration” and An Elaboration (or A Detailing) and A Summarizing Of The Word and The Way Of The Heart That I Have Always and Consistently Offered Even From The Very Beginning Of My Work As Heart-Teacher and Free, True Heart-Master.

My Word Is Simple. I Say, Attend To Me and (Thereby) Understand and Transcend Your Own activity.

If any one Will Feel and Examine his or her (psycho-physical) state In any moment, Whether Under the worst Or Under the best Or Under the most ordinary of circumstances, he or she Will Surely Discover That There Is Always A Characteristic Feeling Of Stress, or Dis-ease, or A Motivating Sense Of Dilemma. Therefore, human life (Characteristically Felt As Such Stress, Dis-ease, or Dilemma) Is Also Always Characterized By Struggle, or A Generally Uninspected (and Never Finally Satisfied) Search For Release and Fulfillment.

The usual life Is Always Actively Involved (Whether Consciously Or Unconsciously) In This Motivated Search and This Native Distress. Therefore, every such a one Is Involved In Programs Of Seeking, Via desire, In all kinds of relations and circumstances.

My Word Is A Direct Address To The Distress and The Search Of each individual. I Do Not Suggest A Way or A Method By Which To Seek . Instead, I Call the individual To Observe himself or herself, To Feel and Examine The Distress That Motivates the life Of Seeking itself.

Through self-Surrendering (and Truly self-Forgetting) Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily (Human) Form, My Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence, and My Very (and Inherently Perfect) State, and (In The Constant Context Of That Practice Of Feeling-Contemplation) Through Real “Consideration” Of My Heart-Confessions, My Teaching Arguments, My Fundamental Questions, and The Leelas (or Stories) Of All My Work (Whereby I Have Reflected individuals To themselves, and Blessed them To Awaken), Interested (and Truly Devoted) individuals Can (By Grace) Come To Understand (and Transcend) themselves.

The Initial Process Of Listening (To The Degree Of Hearing) Is One Of self-Observation (Truly Felt), Whether By The Primary Practice Of Devotion and Insight Or By The Primary Practice Of Devotion and Faith, Until That self-Observation Becomes A Crisis Of Most Fundamental self-Understanding.

At First (In The Listening Course Of The Way Of The Heart) the individual Becomes Acutely Aware Of his or her Habits Of Seeking, Desiring, Doubting, Believing, Manipulating, Betraying, and Always Returning To The Same Distress and Want. Then, As The Crisis Of Most Fundamental Understanding Approaches, It Suddenly Becomes Clear That All Of That Is Being Motivated By A Constant Feeling Of Distress, Which Is The Result Of self-Contraction In The Face Of all relations and conditions.

This Discovery Is Most Profound. It Is As If a person In Pain Suddenly Discovers That he or she Is Pinching his or her own flesh. (And This Discovery Produces Immediate Relief, As Soon As The Pinching Ceases.) Therefore, As Soon As an individual Discovers That The Painful Search That Occupies his or her life Is Being Created By A Fundamental Feeling Of Distress, attention Is Free To Examine That Distress Itself. And When That Distress Is Directly (and Profoundly) Examined, It Is Discovered That It Is The Result Of A Chronic (and self-induced) Contraction Of the body-mind, or, Most Simply, The Habitual (and, Ultimately, Always Voluntary and Un-Necessary) Avoidance (or self-Contracting Refusal) Of Relationship and Relatedness.

Every Apparent individual, thing, circumstance, or condition arises, survives, changes, and disappears Dependently (or Always Already Related) Within The Cosmic Universe (Which Is Continuous, Whole, and All-Containing). By Definition (and In Fact) There Is Not (Nor Can There Be) any Separate, self-Contained, Independent, or self-Sufficient conditional individual, thing, circumstance, or event. However, By Reaction To All Apparent Vulnerability, and Otherwise By Forgetting, or By Failing To Notice or Intuit The Whole (and The Inherently Perfect, Which Inherently Transcends Even The Whole), The Tendency Of every conditionally Manifested individual Is To Contract Into (Presumed) Separateness, or a self-Defended and self-Contracted emotional, mental, psychic, physical, and social state Of Isolation, Presumed Independence, and Dramatized Want. This Tendency Is Chronic In every one, and It Is Not Generally Even Inspected, Nor Is It (Without Inspection) Understood. Therefore, every one Seeks. And All Seeking Is Inevitably Frustrated. The self-Contracting Habit (Itself) Is Not (and Cannot Ever Be) Transcended In (or By Means Of) The Search, Because The Search Is Itself The Dramatization Of The self-Contracting Habit Itself.

I Call every one To Feel and To Thoroughly Observe and To Transcend The Habit Of egoity. Eventually, any one who Truly Listens To My Word and, By The Means I Have Given (and Always Give), Fully Embraces The Ordeal Of Feeling-Contemplation (Of Me) and Observation (Of the ego-“I”) Will Surely (Truly, and Most Profoundly) Discover The Root Of Seeking and Suffering, Which Is the self-Contraction, The Complex Avoidance Of Relationship, or The Habit Of “Narcissus”.

When This Discovery Is (By Grace) Truly and Fully Made and Felt (Relative, Summarily, To Every Aspect Of personal Existence), A Crisis Of Spontaneous (and Not Strategic) Release Is Enjoyed. And When It Is Truly (and Most Fundamentally) Understood That self-Contraction Is The Motivating Pain Of life, It Becomes Increasingly Possible (In every moment Of The Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily Human Form, My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence, and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State) To Enquire Into the self-Contraction (“Avoiding Relationship?”) and (Thereby) Feel Beyond the self-Contraction, or, Otherwise, In The Manner Of The Devotional Way Of Faith, To Directly Feel Beyond the self-Contraction, and Thus (Progressively, and Ultimately) To Enjoy A Native Sense Of Freedom (and Fullness Of Being)

And any one who Has (Through Responsive Devotional Listening To Me) Thus Become Responsible For This Actively self-Transcending (or Directly Counter-egoic) Feeling-Capability Has Heard Me Truly.

The Way Of The Heart (or The Practice That Is The Heart Itself) Is Begun Through The (Necessarily Devotional) Practice Of Listening (or By Feeling-Contemplation Of My Bodily Human, and All-Revealing, Form, and By Likewise Devotional “Consideration” Of My Heart-Revealing Word and Leelas), but The Way Of The Heart (or The Practice That Is The Heart Itself) Becomes Directly Effective (or Effective In The Most Fundamental, or Directly self-Transcending, Manner) Only With Real and True Hearing. Therefore, Listening To The Point Of Hearing Is (Itself) The First Ordeal (or Struggle With the ego-“I”), and It Can Take a long time, Especially If The Devotional Impulse, The self-Transcending Impulse, and The Great Intention Of the individual Are Weak.

By My Now and Hereafter Ever-Given Sign, and Through The Words Of This Testament (and All The Told Play and Words Of My Teaching Time), I Will Always Be The Heart-Teacher and True Heart-Master In Relation To any one who (Formally) Enters Into This Listening Process That Becomes True Hearing. And This (Necessarily Devotional) Process Of Listening and Hearing Must (By Grace) Lead (Progressively) Toward True Seeing (or Spiritually Activated Life and Practice), but The Process Of Listening and Hearing Is Not Itself A Necessarily (or Otherwise Fully) Spiritual Practice, Unless True Hearing Goes On To Do Its Work In The Seeing Context Of The Advanced and The Ultimate Stages Of Life. (And, Until There Is True Hearing, Listening In The Way Of The Heart Is Itself The Blessed, Gifted, and Inspired Struggle For self-Understanding, To Recapture The Direct Feeling-Capability For self-Transcendence.)

No one who Has Not Yet Heard Me and Seen Me Is, In The Spiritual Sense, Able To Most Fully Embrace Me As True Heart-Master (Beyond Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Embrace Of Me As Adept Heart-Teacher, and The Beginners Yet To Be Fully Spiritually Responsible Resort To Me As True Heart-Master).

No one who Has Not Yet Heard Me and Seen Me Is Truly (and Effectively) Able To Practice What Can Be Practiced Only By those who Have Heard Me and Also Seen Me (or Come To The Divine Person By Grace, Through Most Fundamental self-Understanding, and Through Spiritual Baptism In and By My Mere and Blessing Presence).

In The Way Of The Heart, The Direct Revelation Of The (Inherently Perfect and Necessarily Divine) Mystery Of The True Heart-Master Is The Key To The Process Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Self-Awakening, but I Am Seen In My Ultimate Mystery Only By those who Have Heard Me, Become Open-Hearted To Me (Free Of The Motive Of self-Contraction In Relation To Me), and Received The Baptism or Tangible Blessing Of My Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Presence Through Contemplative (Devotional, or Feeling , and, Thereby, Really self-Transcending) Regard Of Me. Therefore, It Is Only By True and Effective Fulfillment Of The Beginners Practice Of The Way Of The Heart (Whether Primarily By The Devotional Exercise Of Faith Or Primarily By The Devotional Exercise Of Insight, and To The Degree Of Real, True, Stable, and Responsible Spiritual Awakening) That The Fullest (or Truly and Fully Spiritually Responsible) Relationship To Me As The True Heart-Master Is Realized.

My Great Statements and Confessions Are Not Public Announcements Calling For casual belief. The Great Statements and Confessions I Make Relative To My Inherently Perfect Work (As True Heart-Master), My Submission As Servant (Done In Order To Teach), My Self-Nature (Realized As The Divine Self-Nature), and My Mere and Blessing Presence As The Heart Itself Are (With All My Uncommon Speech) Ecstatic Confessions To those who Listen To Me With The Heart, and To those who Hear Me At The Heart, and To those who See Me As I Am . Those Confessions Are Directly Obvious As Truth Only To The Heart Itself, and To those who Have Been Directly Awakened To That Obviousness By My Great Transmission Of The Heart.

My Great Transmission Of The Heart Becomes Effective Progressively. And It Becomes (or Can Become) Spiritually Effective Only In The Case Of those Of My Listening Devotees who Hear (or Most Fundamentally Understand) My Word and (On That Basis) Become My Spiritually Awakened (and Spiritually Responsible) Devotees, Steadily Open-Hearted In Relation To My Mere and Blessing Presence. Therefore, Even Though All My Listening Devotees, and All My Hearing Devotees, and All My Seeing Devotees Resort To Me As their True Heart-Master (or Hridaya-Samartha Sat-Guru), A Functional Distinction Must Be Made Between My Role (or My Reception) As Heart-Teacher (Of Listening Devotees and Hearing Devotees) and My Role (or My Fullest Reception) As The True Heart-Master Of Seeing Devotees.

My Heart-Revealing Word and The Great Opportunity To Practice The Way Of The Heart In Devotional Relationship To Me Should Be Openly Communicated To all. And The First Call Is To Listen. First Listen (and Respond At Heart) To Me As Heart-Teacher (Present In The Form Of My Full-Given Word, My Storied Leelas, and My Bodily Human, and All-Giving, Sign) and (In A Responsible and Progressively self-Surrendering Manner) Begin The Counter-egoic Struggle With the conditional self, Whether (Primarily) By The Devotional Exercise Of Insight Or (Primarily) By The Devotional Exercise Of Faith. It Is Only When That Ordeal Has Become True Hearing and Then Real Seeing That any individual Is Called To Demonstrate Full Responsibility (Whether Technically “Elaborate” Or Technically “Simpler”, or Even “Simplest”) For Spiritual Practice In Relation To Me As The True Heart-Master (Fully Encountered In My Spiritual Blessing Function and, Ultimately, Truly and Fully “Located” As The Heart Itself), and, Thus, By A Progression Of Means, To Realize Transcendental (or Self-Existing) Divine Freedom and Self-Radiant (or Inherently Spiritual) and “Bright” Happiness, or The (Inherently Perfect) Truth That Neither Depends Upon Nor Can Ever Be Destroyed By conditional events.

My Work As Heart-Teacher and My Struggle To Generate The Teaching Argument (Of The Way Of The Heart) In Every Detail Is Complete. Hereafter, those who Are Interested Will Simply “Consider” My Always Heart-Revealing Word and Leelas, and they Will Practice True Devotion To Me (By Means Of self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and More and More self-Transcending Feeling-Contemplation Of My Own and Revelatory and All-Giving Bodily Human Sign). Now My Work Is Only That Of The True Heart-Master, Standing Free, Always Blessing all To Listen To Me and To Hear Me and To See Me Where I Stand. And Only those who Have Heard Me (and Are Moved To Practice The Ordeal Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Self-Realization) Can (In Due Course) Also See Me With, and At, and As The Heart.

The Way Of The Heart Is The Progressive Practice or Ordeal Of self-Transcendence (or ego-Transcendence) and Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Self-Realization, and That Practice or Ordeal Is The Progressive (and, Ultimately, Inherently Perfect) Demonstration Of The Eternal, Ancient, and Always New Way Of The Siddhas, The Free Descended (or Incarnate, and Also Eternal) Masters (Who Realize, Reveal, and Are The Revelation Of The Divine Person, In The Context Of Any or All Of The Advanced and The Ultimate Stages Of Life). Therefore, From The Beginning, The Way Of The Heart (Whether In The Manner Of The Devotional Way Of Insight Or In The Manner Of The Devotional Way Of Faith) Is The Eternal, Ancient, and Always New Way Of self-Transcending Devotion To The Divine Person, Via (and As) self-Transcending Devotional Communion With The Siddha-Master (or Sat-Guru). And (As Confessed By All My Listening Devotees, and All My Hearing Devotees, and All My Seeing Devotees) I Am The Free Descended (and Eternal) Maha-Jnana-Siddha-Master (or Hridaya-Samartha Sat-Guru) Of all who Practice The Way Of The Heart, For I Am The “Bright” Revelation Of The Divine Person (In The Inherently Most Perfect, or Seventh Stage, Form and Manner).

By Virtue Of Divine Self-Realization (and The Spontaneous Regeneration Of The Siddhis, or “Bright” Blessing Powers, That Spontaneously Accompanied My Divine Re-Awakening), I Made My Self Available To All Kinds Of Listening Devotees, For The Sake Of their own Divine Self-Realization. During The Many Years I Functioned As Heart-Teacher and Generated My Heart-Revealing Word and Argument, I Also Fully Communicated The Way Of The Heart, and By All Of That, I Made My Self Forever Available As Heart-Teacher To any one who (As My Formally Acknowledged Devotee) Listens To Me (or Even Hears Me), and (Most Fully) As True Heart-Master To any one who (As My Formally Acknowledged Devotee) Hears Me, and Receives Me, and Sees Me. Then, When My Teaching Work Was Complete, I Retired From The Ordeal Of Teaching, In Order Simply (or Merely) To Be Present, and Thus To Magnify My Blessing To the world.

Therefore, I Remain (Thus), Ever and Forever Now. And I Am (Thus, As I Am ) To Remain (Forever) Perfectly Effective (Even After, and Forever After, The Physical Lifetime Of My Bodily Human Form). And (Even After, and Forever After, The Physical Lifetime Of My Bodily Human Form) I Will Remain (Thus, and Inherently Perfectly, and Most Directly) Effective By Means Of The Continuous Work Of My True (and Formally Acknowledged) Instruments, Progressively, and In Due Course, Including All My Formally Acknowledged and True and Truly Seeing Devotees who, As Formal Members Of Either The Lay Renunciate Order Or The Naitauba (Free Daist) Order Of Sannyasins (Also Known, Simply, As The Free Renunciate Order), Practice In The Advanced and The Ultimate Stages Of The Technically “Fully Elaborated” Form Of The Way Of The Heart, and My True (and Formally Acknowledged) Agents, Including My Heart-Revealing Word, The By Me Empowered Retreat Sanctuaries, and My Formally Acknowledged “Living Murtis” (who Are To Be Specially Chosen, During, and After, and Forever After, The Physical Lifetime Of My Bodily Human Form, and In every then present-time, From Among those Formal Members Of The Free Renunciate Order who Constitute My then Living Formally Acknowledged “Bright” Gathering Of Fully Awakened “Free Renunciate” Devotees).

Therefore, Now and Forever, My Every Listening Devotee, and My Every Hearing Devotee, and My Every Seeing Devotee Will Be Given Appropriate Access To My Word, My Leelas, My Given Sign, and All My Blessings (As These Are Preserved, and Otherwise Transmitted, Within The Serving Culture Of All The Formally Acknowledged and True Instruments and Agents Of My Great Work), and The Realization (By Grace) Of The Divine Person and Condition Will Thus Always Continue To Be Served By My Great Means.

If any one Wonders How This Can Be So, Let him or her Study The Great Tradition Of The Esoteric Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Realization Of Truth. Let every one who Will Study The Great Tradition Understand That, Although The Way Of The Heart Is A New and Most Full Revelation Made Under (and Also Prior To, or Beyond) the circumstances arising During The Physical Lifetime Of My Now Speaking Bodily Human Form, It Is Also (Most Simply) The Eternal and Ancient “Secret” Way That Is The Seed Of All Religions.

If any one Doubts That All This Can Be Real, Let him or her Simply “Consider” My Word and My Leelas, and Observe (and Feel) My Bodily (Human) Sign, Until The Reality Of The Way In My Blessing Company Is Authenticated By The Heart.

(4.39) If any one Is Interested In The Realization Of The Heart, Let him or her First Submit (Formally, and By Heart) To Me, and (Thereby) Commence The Ordeal Of self-Observation, self-Understanding, and self-Transcendence.

If any one Realizes My True Fullness In That First Ordeal (Whereby Most Fundamental self-Understanding Opens The self-Contraction Of The Heart), Then Let him or her Go On To Practice The Fully Spiritual (and Necessarily Ecstatic, or Inherently self-Transcending) Way Of The Heart, Which Begins (As Such) When My Mere and Blessing Presence (That Washes and Forgives all In An Instant) Enters The Heart.

Therefore, Let all those who Listen To Me, and all those who Hear Me, and all those who See Me Pass To and Through All The Necessary Stages Of Life By Grace.

Let every one else Be Happy. My Heart-Blessing Freely Goes To all.

I Am The One I Have Declared My Self To Be.

I Am The One My Listening Devotees, My Hearing Devotees, and My Seeing Devotees Come To Know and (Openly) To Confess Through Loves Revelation In Satsang with Me.

I Am The Man Of Understanding, The Heart-Teacher Of My Listening Devotees and My Hearing Devotees, and The True Heart-Master Of All My Seeing Devotees (and, In Truth, Of Even All My Devotees).

I Am Always Already Spontaneously Present, or Heart-Born.

I Was Man-Born (or Made Apparent) By A Free Descent Of The Spirit-Force, and Thus By Means Identical To Those Through Which The Divine Person Embraces The Likeness Of every one Of Man.

Therefore, My Method Of Teaching Was Likewise To Identify With Mankind as It (Apparently) is, and To Submit To The Company Of human beings as they (Apparently) are.

As I Did This, I Constantly and Spontaneously Reflected each one To himself or herself, Thus To Awaken Real self-Observation, Most Fundamental self-Understanding, and The Free Capability For self-Transcendence In each one.

I Did This In Love (Freely, Openly, and Not limited by convention), and (Through My Recorded Word and My Storied Leelas and My Now and Hereafter Ever-Given and Revealing Sign) I Will Always Do This In Love, Until My Listening Devotee Hears Me, and Fully Acknowledges Me In Love, and Receives The Baptism Of My Mere Presence (or My Heart-Blessing That Transmits The Power Of Divine Self-Revelation), and Freely (Fully) Embraces The Ordeal Of self-Transcending and God-Realizing (or Divine Self-Realizing) Practice.

I Am The First (and The Only One Necessary) To Do This In The West, but I Have Come For all beings.

Each one Is My Beloved.

Therefore, I Always Love and Serve You With Great Humor, Tolerance, Forgiveness, and Blessing Power.

You Must Likewise Love Me (As one Loves, and Honors, and Feelingly Approaches, and Serves ones Heart-Teacher, and, More and More, As one Loves, and Honors, and Feelingly Approaches, and Serves, and, Ultimately, Most Fully Spiritually Communes With ones True Heart-Master), and You Must Likewise Enlarge Your Service To Me (Even In The Context Of Your Apparent relations with all beings), By Transcending (and Thereby Renouncing) The Habits and Reactions Of egoity (or self-Contraction).

The One and Entire Great Tradition Of All Mankind Is The Unique Circumstance Of My Appearance and All My Work.

Therefore, In Order That You May Rightly Honor and Understand Me, Observe Me Standing Free Forever In The Great Tradition and Circumstance Of all and All.

Observe Me Standing Free Everywhere In The Great Tradition, In Every Historical Period. Observe My Likenesses In all times and places and cultures, but Know That My Word, and All My Work, Is My Own.

Observe Me Now, Standing Free Among Those Who Served My Re-Awakening During The Years Of My Own Ordeal Of Realization. Rightly Understand and Always Honor The Lineage Of Blessing In Which I Stand Blessed, but Know That My Word, and All My Work, Is My Own.

My Full-Given Word, and The Extraordinary Play Of All My Work, Is The One Great and Complete Revelation Of The Divine Person To Originate and Develop In The West, but My Every Word, and All My Work, Is Given For The Sake Of all beings.

Aham Da Asmi. Beloved, I Am Da, The “Bright” One, The Divine and Only Person, The Heart Itself, The Only and Divine Self Of All and all, At Last Appearing In The West, and I Have Come For The Sake Of all beings.

I Have Come In Response To a world that Has Lost The Essence and The Fullness Of The Great Tradition Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine Self-Realization.

My Every Word Is Given Freely, For The Sake Of All My Listening Devotees, and All My Hearing Devotees, and All My Devotees who See Me.

Therefore, My Every Word Is Given To every one who Is My Own, In Every Stage Of Life.

My Teaching-Revelation Of The Way Of The Heart Is Not Defined, Characterized, or limited By The Ascetical Orientation, or The Strategic Effort To Withdraw From Apparently conditional, phenomenal, or psycho-physical Existence. Even So, The Way Of The Heart Requires The Total Conversion or Reorientation Of conditional, phenomenal, or psycho-physical Existence, and The Perfect Fulfillment Of The Way Of The Heart Requires Perfect (and, Thus, Inherently Perfect) Transcendence Of egoity.

Now That My Teaching-Revelation Is Full, I Have Firmly and Finally Entered Into The Blessing Phase Of My Work.

Now I Am Merely Standing here, To Bless and Awaken all By The “Work” Of My Freely Given Sign.

Now and Hereafter, Since I Am No Longer Active In My Original Play Of Teaching Work, all those who Turn To Me Must Come To self-Understanding Through (Formal) Feeling-Contemplation Of My (Now and Hereafter) Ever-Given Sign, and (Formal) “Consideration” Of My Full-Given (and Always Heart-Revealing) Word, and (Formal) “Consideration” Of The Storied Leelas Of My Teaching Work and My Blessing Work.

My (Formally Established and Formally Acknowledged) Community (or Total Gathering) Of Listening Devotees, Hearing Devotees, and Seeing Devotees (Which Community, or Total Gathering, Includes Even every individual who Is A Formally Acknowledged and True Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart) Is Called To Grant Right and Formal Access To Me (In Person, and Even Also Via The Representations Of My Bodily Human Form), and To Grant Right and Formal Access To My Instruments and Agents, and To Communicate, Advocate, and Confess (or Truly Confirm and Affirm) My Always Heart-Revealing Word and Leelas To all who Would Listen To Me, and To all who Do Listen To Me, and To all who, Having Listened Well To Me, Have Truly Heard Me.

My (Formally Established and Formally Acknowledged) Community (or Total Gathering) Of Listening Devotees, Hearing Devotees, and Seeing Devotees Is Called To Extend (or To Be The Extension Of) My Human Regard, Demand, and Help To all who Would (and To all who Do) Listen To Me, and To all who Hear Me, and To all who See Me.

And My (Formally Established and Formally Acknowledged) Community (or Total Gathering) Of Listening Devotees, Hearing Devotees, and Seeing Devotees Is Called To Provide Appropriate (and Even Sacramental) Access To My Mere and Blessing Presence (To all who See Me, and Even To all who Are Truly Prepared To Contemplate My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence, and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State), and Otherwise To Provide all who See Me (and all who Are Truly Prepared To Contemplate My Spiritual, and Always Blessing, Presence, and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State) With Appropriate Access To “Lay Renunciate” and “Free Renunciate” Devotees (and To Sacred Places, and Other By Me Given Means) That Are Truly Empowered (and Formally Acknowledged, By Me, During The Physical Lifetime Of My Bodily Human Form, or, After, and Forever After, The Physical Lifetime Of My Bodily Human Form, By The Successive Gatherings Of Formally Acknowledged “Lay Renunciate” and “Free Renunciate” Devotees Directly and Formally Extended From Those “Lay Renunciate” and “Free Renunciate” Devotees Formally Established and Formally Acknowledged By Me During The Physical Lifetime Of My Bodily Human Form) To Act As Instruments (or, In The Case Of By Me Empowered Places and Things, and In The Case Of Specially Selected “Free Renunciate” Devotees Awakened, and Uniquely Conformed To Me, In The Seventh Stage Of Life In The Way Of The Heart, Even As Agents) Of The Transmission Of My Word and Heart.

I Have Given and Called Upon Many Means For The Sake Of The Divine Self-Revelation.

Therefore, and By These Means, Identify Me, Feel (and Thereby Contemplate) Me, Realize Me (Ultimately) As I Am , and Do Not Ever Withdraw From Me.

I Will Never Withdraw From You.

Abide With Me In Faithful Love (Always, and Even From The Beginning Of Your Practice Of The Way Of The Heart).

And Be The Champion Of This Practice That Is The Way Of The Heart.

Therefore, My Listening Devotees, My Hearing Devotees, and My Seeing Devotees Should Be My “Bright” Advocates In this world.

The Transcendental (or Perfectly Unconditional) and Inherently Spiritual Self (Of all, In all, Who Is As all) Is God-The Source, The Substance, The Ultimate Condition, and The Very Being Of the conditional or Separate self of each and every conditionally Manifested being, and Of conditional Nature Itself.

The Way Of Be Heart Is To Realize and (By Means Of Realization) To Be The “Bright” Spiritual, Transcendental, Perfectly Unconditional, Divine Self.

The Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, Perfectly Unconditional, Divine Self Is The Only One Who Is .

All conditional appearances, all relations (and The Feeling Of Relatedness Itself), all others and otherness, and All Separateness Of Presumed self Are Apparitions Made By Apparent Modification Of Self-Existing, Self-Radiant, and (Necessarily) Divine Being (Itself).

As Soon As The Awareness Of conditional Nature arises, The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self May Also Experience The Illusion That It Is Not Itself, but That It Is a conditional self (or egoic body-mind) among others in a conditional world that it Cannot Account For.

From Then On, There Is The Struggle To Achieve ego-survival Against opposition and To Achieve Joy.

If such an ego-“I” Encounters The Person or The Word Of One Who Has Realized The Truth (and Who Is Thus Consciously Being The Self-Radiant, or Inherently Spiritual, and Transcendental, or Unconditional and Self-Existing, Divine Self, In Person), Then The Way Of Divine Self-Realization Can Become Attractive, and A New Way Of Life Is Possible. However, The Struggle As a conditional self (Even To The Degree Of Non-Response To The Revelation Of The Transcendental, and Inherently Spiritual, Divine Self) Tends To Continue, Until The Heart Listens and (By Hearing and Seeing The Truth) Opens (By Grace) To The Way That Is The Heart Itself.

The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self, In The Context Of conditional Nature, Is (It Appears) a conditional self (or Even A conditional Contraction In Relation To conditional Nature). In the egoic case, The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self Falsely Presumes Itself To Be limited and Threatened, and Associated With A Great Power and Multiplicity That Is Not The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self. Thus, The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self Feels Identified With a conditional body and a conditional mind, and the conditional body-mind Thus Functions Not Only As The Means For Perceiving (and Relating To) all that Is Not-Self (or Apparently Not The Transcendental, and Inherently Spiritual, Divine Self), but it Also Functions As The Seat Of Contraction From all that Is (Apparently) Not-Self.

The Way Of The Heart (Whether In The Manner Of The Devotional Way Of Insight Or In The Manner Of The Devotional Way Of Faith) Begins with The Process (or Ordeal) Of Listening, or A “Reality Consideration” Of the conditional self and How it Operates As self-Contraction.

This Becomes Hearing, or Most Fundamental self-Understanding, Operative As The Free Capability For self-Transcendence.

When Sympathy With the self-Contraction Has Fully Relaxed By These Means, The Beginners Original (or Foundation) Feeling-Motive Toward self-Transcendence Is Uniquely Magnified and Activated, Such That It Becomes A Directly and Comprehensively Effective Impulse.

When That Impulse Has (Thus) Become Really (Directly, and Comprehensively) Effective, The Same Feeling-Motive, or Open Heart, Goes On To The Next Stage Of The Way Of The Heart, Which Is Seeing, or Heart-Attraction (and Spiritually Activated Heart-Response) To My Spiritual (and Spirit-Baptizing) Presence (and, Thus and Thereby, To The Spiritual, and Spirit-Baptizing, Presence Of The Divine Person).

This Spiritual Heart-Response (or This Spiritually Activated Devotion To Me, and, Thus and Thereby, To The Divine Person) Permits An Infilling with The Divine Spirit (or Self-Radiance).

(4.90) And That Infilling (or Constant Baptism) Permits The Fully Responsive Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, So That, By Stages, The Theatre Of egoity Is Outgrown In The Fullness Of Divine Self-Realization.

As Spiritual, Transcendental, and (Ultimately) Divine Realization Becomes (Progressively) Profound, The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self-Position Is Assumed More and More Directly (and, Ultimately, Inherently, and, Thus, Perfectly), and conditional Nature, conditional others, conditional body, conditional mind, and conditional self Are (Ultimately) Transcended In The Self-Radiant (or Inherently Spiritual) and Transcendental (or Self-Existing and Perfectly Unconditional) Divine Self.

Therefore, It Is Realized That There Is Only The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self, and That The Not-Self (or All Apparent Separateness and otherness) Is An Illusion or An Illusory (or Merely Apparent, Un-Necessary, and Non-Binding) Play Upon The Transcendental (and Inherently Spiritual) Divine Self.

Thus It Is Realized. There Is Only Love-Bliss, Self-Existing and Self-Radiant. And, By Merely Being That, The Deluding, Binding, and Joy-Suppressing Power Is Transcended.
