Chapter 8

Only The Divine Person Is Self-Existing, Immortal, Eternal, Complete, Whole, Self-Radiant, Perfect Consciousness, Full of Inherent Happiness, Unconditional Love, Infinite Bliss, and Boundless Energy

The Apparently individual or Separate self Is Not Self-Existing or Immortal, a “spark” (or an Eternal fraction) Of Self-Radiant Divinity, and Somehow Complete or Whole In itself.

Only God, The Divine Person, Is Self-Existing, Immortal, Eternal, Complete, Whole, and Self-Radiant.

The Apparently individual or Separate self Is Not inwardly (or in and of itself) Perfect, a “soul” (or A Perfect individual Consciousness), and Somehow Full Of Divine Qualities (Such As Inherent Happiness, Unconditional Love, Infinite Bliss, and Boundless Energy).

Only God, The Divine Person, Is Perfect Consciousness, Full Of (or Characterized By) The Qualities Of Inherent Happiness, Unconditional Love, Infinite Bliss, and Boundless Energy.

The Truth (That Sets The Heart Free) Is Not That the Apparently individual or Separate self (or ego-“I”) Is itself Immortal and Divine, or That some fraction or dimension of the Apparently individual or Separate self Is Immortal and Divine, but The Truth (That Sets The Heart Free) Is That There Is Only God.

The Apparently individual or Separate self arises conditionally, and Yet it Always Already Inheres In God.

The Apparently individual or Separate self is the (Total, Complex) conditional body-mind or Apparent psycho-physical personality.

The (Total, Complex) Apparently individual or Separate self is arising in three Primary (and Coincident) forms, the gross (or the physical), the subtle (or the etheric, the mental, and the deep psychic), and the causal (or the Root-essence of the conditional self).

The (Total, Complex) Apparently individual or Separate self is arising As An Apparent Modification (and Contraction) Of The Eternal Self-Radiance (or Inherent Spirit-“Brightness”) Of God and As An Apparent Contraction Of The Transcendental (or Self-Existing) Consciousness That Is God.

The individual or Separate self, As Well As every other Apparent being and every other Apparent form or process Manifested Within The Cosmic Mandala, arises conditionally and Yet Always Already Inheres In God. Because Of This, no individual being or Apparent form is Ever Finally destroyed or ended In This Drama Of worlds. Every Apparent (or conditional) one and every Apparent (or conditional) thing is a process, a continuum of changes, that Persists Even Through and Beyond dissolution or death (Because Separation From The Transcendental, or Eternal, and Inherently Spiritual Condition That Is God Is Not Possible).

Even So, mere continuation Is Not Happiness Itself (or The Inherent Realization Of Love-Bliss). Merely To Persist As an Apparently Separate form or process, Unconsciously Inhering In The Eternal God, Is Only To Contemplate limitation. The self-limited personality, Confined To the Apparent display of causes and effects, Is Stress-Bound To Seek Fulfillment and Release, Either By Exclusive Involvement In The Illusions Of inwardness (As If the conditional self, Dissociated From body and mind, Were itself The Immortal Love-Bliss), Or By Extroverted and Apparently Inclusive Indulgence Of body and mind In The Illusions Of conditional experience and conditional knowledge (As If The Mandala Of The Cosmos Were Itself The Immortal Love-Bliss).

The Immortal (and Thus Necessarily Divine) Love-Bliss Is Realized Neither By Exclusive Identification With the inward self-position Nor By Apparently Inclusive Immersion In the conditional or phenomenal realms. The Realization Of The Divine Condition Of Love-Bliss Is Necessarily A Matter Of Transcendence Of the limits On That Love-Bliss, To The Degree Of Ultimate (Inherent, and Inherently Perfect) Identification With That Love-Bliss.

Therefore, The Way Of The Heart Is Never A Matter Of Identification With the subjective or the objective limitations of the conditional self-position. Both The subjective and The objective Illusions Created By the self-Contraction Must Be Transcended Through The Process Of Real (and Most Fundamental) self-Understanding, Which Becomes Ecstasy (or self-Transcendence) In God (or self-Transcending Communion With The One In Whom the conditional self and the conditional worlds Are arising, or Appearing To arise, As Apparent Modifications Of itself), and Which Realizes Ultimate Enstasy (or Awakening To Inherent, and Inherently Perfect, Identification With The Divine, or Perfectly Subjective, Self-Condition In Which every conditional or phenomenal appearance, including the body-mind-self, Always Already Inheres).

God Is The Liberator,

Not The Creator.

God Is The Way Out,

Not The Way In.

The Way Of God

Is The Way Of Sacrifice

(or self-Transcendence),

Not The Way Of

self-Seeking,

Self-Increase, and

self-Success.

Therefore, The Way Of The Heart Is The Great Process Of Devotional self-Sacrifice In God (By Means Of self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Feeling-Contemplation Of My God-Revealing Bodily Human Form, My Spiritual, and Always Divinely Blessing, Presence, and My Very, and Inherently Perfect, State). And, By Means Of This Great Process, the Total psycho-physical self Of My Devotee Is Submitted To The Progressive Ordeal Of (Ultimately, Inherent, and Inherently Perfect) Divine Self-Realization.

The Way Of The Heart Is The Great Process Of Transcending the objective (or conditionally externalized) point of view and the conditionally subjective (or conditionally internalized) point of view, By Grace, Through Progressively self-Surrendering, self-Forgetting, and self-Transcending Feeling-Contemplation Of (and Feeling-Identification With) My God-Revealing Bodily (Human) Form, My Spiritual (and Always Divinely Blessing) Presence, and My Very (and Inherently Perfect) State, Such That (Ultimately, By Grace) the (Apparent) conditional body-mind and the (Apparent) conditional world Are “Viewed” From (and Divinely Recognized In and As ) The (Inherently Perfect) Divine Subject-Position (or The Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Self-State Of Being). And The Way Of The Heart Necessarily Proceeds By Stages Of Revelation, Corresponding To The First Six Stages Of Life (While Perhaps, By Grace, Effectively Bypassing Some), Until The Realization and The Demonstration Of The Seventh Stage Of Life.

Therefore, The Way That Is The Heart (Itself) Is The Way That Transcends The Illusions Of “Creator” and “Creation”, By Transcending the ego-“I”. The Heart Itself Was Never “Created”, Nor Is There Ever any “creature” There.
