Chapter 5

I Am The Man Of Understanding, The Teacher Of The Heart
By Word and Sign, and I Am The True Heart-Master, Whose Mere
and Blessing Presence Awakens The Heart To Itself

The Heart-Way That Was Revealed Via The Spontaneous
Ordeal Of My Own Submission Is A Revelation To all
beings.

The Basic Signs Of The Heart-Way That Appeared In My Own
Case Are The Inevitable Signs That Will and Must Appear In
the case of any conditionally Manifested being who
Completely Submits To The Transcendental Divine Being and
Condition.

In My Own Case, The Heart-Way Was Demonstrated Via The
Total Range Of Primary Disciplines, Stages, and Signs That
May Appear In The Process Of The Great Submission, and Those
Disciplines, Stages, and Signs Included All The Basic
Disciplines, Stages, and Signs That Must Progressively
Characterize The Heart-Way In The Case Of Any True
Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart. Therefore, As Revealed
In My Own Case, The Basic Practice For All Practitioners Of
The Way Of The Heart Involves A Total Culture Of
self-Transcendence, Progressively Including The Discipline
Of attention Via The Conscious Process, The Discipline Of
the body-mind Through functional, practical, relational, and
Cultural Disciplines, The Discipline Of Devotional
self-Submission, and The Discipline and Process Of
Spirit-Conductivity.

There Is No Easier Way Than The Way Of The Heart, but The
Way Of The Heart Is A Simpler Way Than the ego Would Make Of
It.

My Own Practice Of The Progressive Heart-Way Was
Spontaneous, Generally Uninformed, and Exceptionally
Difficult. Even Though I Found Strong and Compassionate
Teachers Who Were Real Spirit-Baptizers, I Found No
Tradition, or Any Gathering Of Traditions, That Communicated
Complete Wisdom To My Loud Requiring Heart, and I Found No
One Spiritual Master, or Any Number Of Spiritual Masters,
Who Taught or Affirmed All The Secrets Of The Complete
Process That I Was Born To Reveal. Therefore, I Had To
Discover The Fullest Extent Of The Heart-Way By My Self,
Through A Hard School Of self-Observation and Spontaneous
Inspiration, Guided By The “Bright” Divine Disposition In
Which I Was Uniquely Born, and Served In My Course By Sudden
Instruments and Visitations Of The Living Divine.

So It Was. Even So, Once My Own Ordeal Of Divine
Self-Realization Was Complete, A Direct and Simpler and
Completely Informed Practice Of The Heart-Way Became
Revealed and Possible For all others. Therefore, The
Heart-Way That Is Awakened and Fulfilled By Grace, Through
Direct Response To My Word, My Leelas, My Bodily Form, My
Spiritual Presence, and My Very State, Became Possible For
all others.

By Means Of My Own Ordeal Of Birth, Trial, and
Realization, I Have Realized and Revealed The Inherently
Perfect Condition and The Inherently Perfect Agency.
Therefore, The Heart-Way For all others Can, As A Result,
Become The Most Direct One Of Listening To Me, and Hearing
Me, and Seeing Me, and Realizing Me, By Response and
Submission To The Omnipresent Spiritual, Transcendental, and
Divine Agency Revealed In and By and As My Bodily Form, My
Spiritual Presence, and My Very State.

The Adept-Realizer Is The Necessary Source Of Faith,
Verity, and Help. The Adept-Realizer Is The Necessary Agent
Of Demonstration That Proves All Truth. The Adept-Realizer
Is The Necessary Sign Of God, That Authenticates God and All
Auspiciousness To Man. And Such Has Been Proclaimed and
Constantly Verified Since The Ancient Days. Therefore,
Embrace and Realize Me, For I Am This Sourceful Gift.

In The Way Of The Heart, The Adept and True Heart-Master
Is Here To Function As The Source Of Faith, Verity, and Help
For all who Listen, and all who Hear, and all who See.
Therefore, Be So Served, and Be Heart-Moved By Me, or Else
Even The Impulse To Perfectly self-Transcending
God-Realization Will Not Really, Truly, and Effectively
Awaken, and The Will To Effective Practice Will Fail To Find
Its Gifted Heart-Motive.

Since The Ancient Days, The Sign, The Word, and The
Leelas Of The Adept-Realizer Have Been Praised, Embraced,
and Realized As The Sources Of Grace, Faith, Inspiration,
Guidance, Instruction, Purifying Effect, Divine
Transmission, and Inherently Perfect Realization. And This
Is So Now, and Now, For all those who Listen To Me, and all
those who Hear Me, and all those who See Me, and, Therefore,
Even all who Love Me.

The Way Of The Heart Is Not The Problem-Based and
ego-Based Path Of Seeking For self-Fulfillment In any realm.
Even Though The Apparently Developmental Process Of The Way
Of The Heart Is Inevitably Indicated By The Seven Potential
Stages Of Life, and Also By Many Potential Signs Of
Realization, The Way Of The Heart Is Not Based On A Search
For Signs or A Search For Any conditional Result. Rather,
The Way Of The Heart Is The Way Of Always Present
self-Transcendence, and That Way Becomes, By Grace, Direct
and self-Transcending Communion With The Living and Revealed
Divine, Even To The Inherently Perfect Degree Of Ultimate
Identification With The Transcendental Divine
Self-Condition.

Transcendence Of Separate and Separative self Is The
Necessary Practice Of The Way Of The Heart, Whether At The
Very Beginning Or In Any Subsequent Stage Of Life or moment
Of Practice. And The Necessary Ordeal Of self-Transcendence
Is Simplified By The Release Of attention From self-Concern,
and This By Means Of The Surrender Of attention To My
Revealing Bodily Sign and Word and Leelas, and To My Fullest
Heart-Transmission, and To The Inherently Perfect Revelation
That Is My Very State. Therefore, This Way Is The Way That I
Made Clear To My Listening Devotees.

Now That My Struggle To Teach Is Complete, I Openly
Declare and Affirm That I Am The Man Of Understanding, and I
Am The Adept Teacher Of The Heart, and I Am The True
Heart-Master Of All My Seeing Devotees. My
Teaching-Revelation Is Complete, My Personal Agency Is Full
Of Light, and The Way For all who Listen To Me, and For all
who Hear Me, and For all who See Me Is The Way Of Devotional
Sacrifice Of the ego-“I” To The Spiritual, Transcendental,
and Divine Condition Revealed By My Bodily Form, My
Spiritual Presence, and My Very State.

The Way Of Truth Transcends All Wisdom That Is Otherwise
Useful To Seekers. The Revelation Of The Way Of Truth Makes
All Seeking A Mere Diversion From The Truth. The Way Of
Truth Depends On Grace, Rather Than On Any Other
Qualifications or personal Traits. No one Is Qualified For
Any Other Approach. It Is Not Necessary For any one To Be
Qualified For Any Other Approach. Divine Grace Is The Only
Necessary Competence. And Divine Grace Is Neither Deserved
Nor Earned. It Is A Paradox, Mysteriously Given, and It Is
Simply To Be Honored By Acknowledgement, Reception, and
Realization.

Therefore, If You Love Me, Then Feel My Sign, Listen To
My Word, Regard My Leelas, and Understand. And When Your
Understanding Is Full, Most Fundamental, and Fundamentally
Effective, Then Submit To Divine Grace In The Manner I Will
Describe To You. By All The Means I Will Describe To You, I
Will Attract and Awaken You To The Divine Heart-Happiness
and, At Last, To The “Bright” Divine Self-Domain Of The Only
One Who Is .

All those who Listen To Me and Love Me Should Resort To
Me and Be Blessed, For I Am The Adept Of The Heart, and My
Blessing Awakens The Heart To Itself.

All those who Hear Me Should Resort To Me and Be Blessed,
For I Am The Adept Of The Heart, and My Blessing Awakens The
Heart To Itself.

And all those who See Me Should Resort To Me and Be
Blessed, For I Am The Adept Of The Heart, and My Blessing
Awakens The Heart To Itself.

Therefore, All My Listening Devotees, and All My Hearing
Devotees, and All My Seeing Devotees Should Embrace The Way
Of self-Transcending Devotion To The Spiritual,
Transcendental, and Divine Person, Reality, and
Self-Condition Revealed By My Bodily Form, My Spiritual
Presence, and My Very State.

My Arguments Relative To “Narcissus”, “Radical”
Understanding, Divine Ignorance, and All Other Principal
Forms Of My Teaching Argument Remain Primary Tools For The
Preparation and Ongoing Development Of All Practitioners Of
The Way Of The Heart.

Likewise, Every Practitioner Of The Way Of The Heart Must
Become Capable Of True Devotional self-Sacrifice In God.

Therefore, My Ultimate Message To all who Listen To Me In
The Way Of The Heart Is My Heart-Word Relative To The Always
Present Necessity Of Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine
Grace, and My Heart-Word Relative To The Fact That The
Divine Person Of Grace Is Always Moving, Attracting, and
Drawing all conditional beings Beyond themselves, and My
Heart-Word Relative To The Progressive Transcendence Of the
self-Contraction By Grace, and My Heart-Word Relative To The
“Practice” Of Transcendental Divine Self-Consciousness.
