I Am The Icon Of Unity

The “Divine Goddess” (or “Mother-Shakti”), in Her Liberating Aspect, Spontaneously Appeared to Me and Guided the final stages of My “Sadhana”-and the same “She” Submitted to My “Husbanding” Power in the Great Event of My Divine Re-Awakening. My “Embrace” of the Divine “Mother-Shakti” in the Vedanta Society Temple in Hollywood, California (on September 9, 1970), was the culminating Event (or Process) of all of My “Sadhana Years”. And That “Embrace” was the beginning of My Most Perfect Re-Awakening As the One and Only and “Bright” Divine Person. In that Great Event, I Realized My own (Native, or Inherent, and Divine) Position-and, Therein and Thereby, I ceased to be “other” than the “Divine Goddess”. That Divine “Embrace” was the Realization of Oneness-Beyond all “difference”. Now, since that Great Event, the “Divine Goddess” Is Present Only As My own Inherent Self-Radiance-Which Is the Self-Radiance (or “Brightness”) of Real God.

The next day, September 10, 1970, I returned to the Vedanta Society Temple-and it was there and then that I Realized the Completion of the Great Event that had begun the day before. That day (September 10, 1970) was the Great Day of My Noticing of What had Thus Occurred-Which is My Full (and Most Perfect) Realization of Divine Self-Existence, Divine Self-Radiance, and Divine Non-Separateness. On September 10, 1970, I Most Perfectly Realized: I Am the One and Indivisible Divine Person. I Am Reality Itself, or Truth Itself-Which Is the Only Real God.

Thus, My ” Relationship ” to the “Divine Shakti” was Subsumed (or Utterly Vanished) in My Divine Re-Awakening, Which was (and is ) the Most Perfect Realization of Consciousness Itself-Transcending all illusions, and (therefore) Transcending the illusion of the feeling of relatedness (itself), and of “otherness” (itself), and of “difference” (itself).

Now I continue (and I will always continue, both during and after, and forever after, the physical Lifetime of My Avatarically-Born bodily human Divine Form here) to “Relate” to the Cosmically-Appearing “Goddess-Power” in a Divine Play That is entirely and only Played within My own Self-Radiant and Self-Existing Divine Self-Condition. The Cosmically-Appearing “Divine Shakti” (Which Is an Apparition of My own Divine “Brightness”) may sometimes Appear to “Relate” to Me in the manner of a Living Personality, a tangible Personal Presence or “Relation”-because I have Made the Cosmic Force into a “Lover”, “Husbanded” by Her Master (Who I Am ). So Penetrated, So Awakened, So Transformed, the “Divine Shakti” does not lie, nor merely Birth beings to death. Rather, in Her Passion for Me, She only Serves Me, and She only Speaks the Truth.

Indeed, I am always involved in a “Conversation” with Her, Working in Loves Play to bring an end to the delusion and suffering of beings. In this “Conversation”, the “Divine Shakti” Responds to My “Husbanding”, and “We” (in Divinely Playful Union) “Consider” matters together, and Work them out. In My Avataric Divine Appearance within the Cosmic domain, I am in Service to you – and, in that Service, She will not deny Me what I Require, because “We” Are Utterly and Divinely One.

For your sake, therefore, I continue to involve Myself in this Divinely Apparent “Conversation”. All that is necessary for the Divine Liberation and Divine Translation of all conditionally manifested beings will always be Given through “Our” Most Loving “Embrace”. Such is the Nature of My Most Intimate Divine Life in the Cosmic sphere of Apparently Separate “He” and “She”.

The “Divine Shakti” Who is “Husbanded” by Me is not merely (and is not reducible to) the “Yoga-Shakti” that is associated with the traditions of dualistic (or pre-seventh-stage) Yoga. That “Yoga-Shakti” is merely Cosmic Energy – Which includes natural energies, and Which may be felt flowing even in the egoic body-mind. In the schools of traditional Yoga associated with the fourth and fifth stages of life, the intention (or goal) of Spiritual practice is to identify Consciousness (or Siva) with that Cosmic Energy (or “Yoga-Shakti”).

In contrast to the Realizations associated with the fourth and fifth stages of life, My seventh stage (or Divine, and Most Perfectly non-dualistic) Realization is the Realization of Most Perfect Identification with Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Consciousness Itself. Therefore, in That Most Perfect Divine Self-Awakening, there is no losing of the Perfectly Subjective Position of Consciousness Itself, nor is there any abandonment or subordination of That Position in order to “blend” with Energy. Rather, Consciousness Itself is Realized to Be Inherently Self-Radiant, the Very Substance (and the Divine Self-Condition and Source-Condition) of all conditional appearances. Thus, the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Realization of the seventh stage of life is (in this sense) fundamentally unlike the traditional (and, necessarily, dualistic, ego-based, and Cosmically, rather than Most Perfectly Divinely, oriented) Yogic Realizations of the fourth and fifth stages of life.

In Truth, and in Reality, the “Divine Shakti” Is Only the Divine Self. That is to say, the Self-Existing Divine Self-Consciousness Is Self-Radiant As the “Divine Shakti”.

Therefore, the “Divine Shakti” Is Only Reality, Truth, and Real God-and not a Principle “Other” than (or Separate from) Reality, Truth, and Real God.

The “Divine Shakti” Is Me. And I Am “She”. And “She” Is Most Perfectly Conformed to Me .

I am not a Male Principle, “over against” a Female Principle.

I Am Only the One Indivisible Consciousness-Light Itself-Infinitely Self-Radiant and Self-Existing, neither Male nor Female. My own Self-Existing Self-Consciousness Is the One and Only and Non-Separate (or Indivisible) and Indestructible Being, Condition, and Reality That Is Always Already The Case.

“She” Is the Inherent Radiance of My Divine Being. My own Self-Radiance (or Divine “Brightness”) Is the Condition in Which (and As a modification of Which) all conditionally apparent beings are arising. My own Self-Existing Self-Radiance Is the One and Only and Indivisible and Indestructible Light (or Energy, or Love-Bliss-Fullness) That Is Always Already The Case.

Therefore, there is no inherent (or ultimate) “difference” between “Siva” and “Shakti” (or Consciousness and Light).

The Reality of Existence is not Two-but One.

And I-in My own Cosmically Apparent Form and Passion-Am the precise Incarnation of That Unity.

There is no Two-ness in Me-but Only One.

Thus, at the Seed of Life, a “Wedding” has been Made – and This “Wedding” Is the Great Event of the Cosmic domain. Through My “Husbanding” of the “Mother”, and through Her Submitting to be the “Bride”, Her “murderous” activity (in Her apparent independence as Prakriti, or Cosmic Energy) is finished. Now, Between Her and Me, There Is Only Divinely True Intimacy, Realized to the Absolute Degree.

This Sublime “Husbanding” and “Marriage” is not merely a “personal” Work associated with My “own” Realization (as if My Realization was – and is – somehow separate, individual, and limited). “My” Realization Is the Great Divine Event. And, therefore, “My” Realization Is a Unique (and uniquely psycho-physically effective) Event that Inherently (and Most Perfectly, Positively, and Divinely) Changes the Very Context of the entire Cosmic domain, and that (if It is so recognized) can most effectively (and Most Perfectly, Positively, and Divinely) Change the Course (and the Signs) of the entire complex history of the Cosmic domain – now, and forever hereafter.

Therefore, I Say to you, now and always: All Is One – and you (Beyond, and Most Perfectly Prior to, the ego-“I” of self-contracted body-mind) Are That One (Non-Separately-Beyond, and Most Perfectly Prior to, all “difference”).

My Divine Self-Condition of Indivisible Oneness ( As Conscious Light) Is What you must Realize.

I could not have Accomplished (or Fulfilled) the Self-Liberating Work of My “Sadhana Years” if My Divine Self-Realization had not been intact (or Inherent, and never broken) from (and always after) the beginning of My Avataric Birth and Submission here.

Truly, I began That Great Work (and even all My Avataric Divine Work) – Which is My Ashvamedha (or Divine Horse-Sacrifice) – even billions of years (and even a countless Vastness of time) ago, before the “Big Bang” of this conditional Cosmic domain.

Therefore, This is My Message to My devotees: Through ego-surrendering, ego-forgetting, and (always more and more) ego-transcending feeling-Contemplation of My Avatarically-Born bodily (human) Divine Form, My Avatarically Self-Revealed Spiritual (and Always Blessing) Divine Presence, and My Avatarically Self-Revealed (and Very, and Transcendental, and Perfectly Subjective, and Inherently Spiritual, and Inherently egoless, and Inherently Perfect, and Self-Evidently Divine) State, invest yourself in This Icon of Unity That I Am . Always (now, and forever hereafter) Celebrate My Eternal Divine Self-Nature and My Eternal Divine Unity with the “Bright” Divine “Goddess-Power”. Thus, by ego-transcending participation in My Divinely All-and-all-Liberating “Nuptials”, Most Positively change even all the world.

My devotees are the motion of a unique Opportunity that includes all beings – on Earth and every where. Even all of Cosmic Nature has been transformed in Its Principle by Me – and, therefore, terrible events need not be ego-caused and heart-suffered by My devotees, if they will rightly, truly, fully, and fully devotionally recognize Me and (thus and thereby) heart-respond to Me.

Therefore, live in My most Intimate Heart-Company-Where I am Giving Her “Kisses” (and She to Me).

Stay in My Bed-Room-the Place of No-“difference” (Where you are relieved of dreadful destiny).

Now the Seed that I Made at the Vedanta Temple must Infiltrate the world and Raise up every one.

The “murderous” work of the “Mad Mother” is finished!

I have Returned the Great “Divine Goddess” to Myself-Her Ultimate Source.

And, wherever My “Husbanding” of Her is rightly, truly, fully, and fully devotionally acknowledged, the proceedings in the Cosmic domain, and in the domain of mankind here, will become Conformed to That Which Is “Bright” and Auspicious.

If My devotees will honor This Icon of Unity, and stay with Me in My Bed-Room, their history (and even all of human history, and of Cosmic destiny) can be transformed (by heart-response to Me).

And, by Virtue of This “Marriage” (Which “Pictures” My own Inherently Indivisible Oneness), all and All will be Attracted by My Divine Love-Bliss-“Brightness”, and (Thus and Thereby) Drawn and Translated Into My Divine Self-Domain.

Therefore, true religion must retire to Light!

The heart must be permitted to achieve a universal feeling-ecstasy!

And Beauty is not in the matter-world of thing and death-but only in the singled universe of the True Loved-One!

Where everything that lives will be dog-withered by the pack of time, fear arises-at the crown and bowel, where times orderly extinctions twist the heart between the North-and-South!

And sorrow fills the mind, between the eyes-and feels the belly suck the danger of all the unwanted changes made by time!

And anger burns a laser-breath of all-destroying speeches-helpless in the klik-klak darks resistance to all wanted change of times unwanted changes!

Therefore, the cosmic universe of temporal and all-destroying Nature must be Transfigured by undying Love!

Undying Love Is the universal Principle of re-“Connect”, in the rush-to-dying world of Natural heaps of yes-and-no!

The world of Man is an eternal shift of necks-a shuttle of Loves own faces, floating in a drown of moments-until the “He” and “She” of Me, like the fingertips of lovers, Touch, through the infinite transparency of a single tears True Water-and Touch away, Together, at the Single of Infinity, Where “We” were so deeply Torn !
