Don’t Get Ahead of Yourself – Beezone adapatation

Be aware that without having become truly responsible for the conventional reactive disposition of the body-mind you should not entertain the consideration of the esoteric matters. You must stay with the basics.

Just because your mind may comprehend an esoteric principle does not mean you’ve realized anything about it. You may like the idea of applying esoteric principles to your understanding of spiritual matters, but it is complete nonsense. Because you are not responsible, not truly human you will simply be using knowledge as a way of reinforcing the self-possessed motives of your ordinary and unillumined life. This is one reason since ancient times esoteric practices were not introduced to those who did not demonstrate a level of adaptation at the foundational levels. It was only when foundational levels of practices were established that esoteric practices were introduced into the spiritual process.

All true religion and spirituality are about Communion, whether they be Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, Hebrew or whatever. Religion and spirituality are not about ideas and subjectivism, but about adapting the body-mind literally to the All-Pervading Current and Consciousness that is the Great Space, the Divine.

Religious and spiritual life is about practice. It is about what you do. It is about changing your action and adapting in a new way. These adaptations do not involve intellectual and cognitive understanding at the brain centers only. They involve bringing ones bodily life, one’s vital life into confrontation with what is already always the case, the Absolute.

The evolutionary mechanism associated with higher and previously esoteric religion is essentially associated with the central nervous system and the present subhuman or not yet fully developed practitioners must grow beyond his or her present limits via a process of higher personal and moral acculturation, and via superior, religious or esoteric spiritual disciplines. Those disciplines involve participatory submission of the individual body-mind into the universal life-Current.

This wisdom is not a new invention of my own. It has been the basic presumption behind esoteric societies all over the world for countless centuries. In ancient times a practitioner was not considered fit to enter into esoteric spiritual matters until he or she demonstrated responsibility for the reactive, self-possessed, self-divided patterns of ordinary living.

Spiritual understanding involves a practice of purification, liberation, and awakening. Esoteric spiritual understanding involves the transcendence of the ego, or conditional attention and this develops by stages. This involves the transcendence of superficial intellectual understandings commonly mistaken for spiritual understanding.

What must become your responsibility is for the submission of specific psycho-physical functions, specific structures of the body-mind, to the All-Pervading Life, so that the All-Pervading Current of Life can transform the whole and entire body-mind. All of the forms of personal and moral and religious preparation must be realized before the individual is prepared to make use of esoteric teachings and practices.

We must understand what we are presently, actively doing, contracting. If we are to evolve we must unlock the knots of the body mind. We must bring to consciousness, the energies in our vital centers first. We must become responsible for the basics in all the forms of recoil, reactivity and begin to discipline the body-mind.

Only when the delusions of pseudo modern psychology and spirituality are transcended by insight, transcendence and practice can we begin to evolve. Until then it’s only the talking school.

The Life-Force must become magnified in the body-mind and the body-mind must become transformed. It is only then we can go on to grow through the structural responsibilities until everything dissolves in The Great Radiant Space of Being.

What are the Basics?

“Attending to My Argument is called the listening process, but you are seeking instead. You are not presently listening to My Argument, then, are you? You are not listening to Me, not examining yourself according to My Word and fashioning your practice on the basis of this “consideration”. Instead, you are carrying on with your oblivious search nonsense and pretending that that is the practice.”

“The process of listening to Me, that process in which you must locate the self-contraction
