THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE PRELIMINARY
LISTENING-PRACTICE OF PERFECT KNOWLEDGE AND THE PERFECT
PRACTICE OF PERFECT KNOWLEDGE

 

The Distinction Between The Preliminary
Listening-Practice

of Perfect Knowledge and The Perfect Practice of Perfect
Knowledge

My Teaching-Instruction has always been as It is now: the
present-time transcending of egoity itself and of
seeking—through whole bodily devotional
recognition-response to Me, whole bodily devotional turning
to Me, and “radical” (or always
“at-the-root”) “self”-understanding.
There is a basic ground of necessary preparation associated
with everything that must precede the “Perfect
Practice”—but the preparatory dimension of the
total practice is not, in and of itself, to become forever
prolonged, such that what is merely preparatory becomes a
separate and never-ending way of life.

From the beginning, My Divine Avataric Reality-Teaching
has always been a “Radical” Teaching. I have
always referred to My Divine Avataric Reality-Teaching as
“Radical”—meaning that It “addresses the
‘root’ of egoity itself”, rather than
exploiting and conditionally developing the psycho-physical
phenomena associated with the permutations of egoic
possibility (gross, subtle, and causal).

Devotional recognition-response to Me is not merely
conventional (or nominal) devotionalism. To devotionally
recognize Me and devotionally respond to Me is to have come
into the Intrinsic Feeling-Apprehension of My Intrinsically
egoless and Self-Evidently Divine State. To devotionally
recognize Me is to Find Me As My State. To devotionally
respond to Me is to turn to Me As My State, and to
devotionally Commune with Me through sensitivity to My
Avatarically Self-Transmitted Transcendental Spiritual (and
Always Blessing) Divine Presence. By Means of simply
Sighting Me, one who devotionally recognizes Me and
devotionally responds to Me is, thus and thereby, turned to
Me by Means of Intrinsic Feeling-Apprehension of My Divine
Avataric Self-Transmission of My Intrinsically egoless
Self-“Bright” State.

My Divine Avataric Gift to all deals with the
“root-problem” of egoity itself, and the entire
pattern of “experiencing” and living based on
seeking (which pattern develops from that very
“root” of “self”-contraction). This is
not something that is supposed to take decades—or even
your entire life—to figure out. The only-by-Me Revealed
and Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam is not a matter of “interviewing the
ego” forever, and (on that basis) merely making
piecemeal adjustments in behavior. Rather, the only-by-Me
Revealed and Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam Is a “Radical” Teaching, and a
“radical” process, founded in “radical”
devotion to Me. That “radical” process cuts
through the “root” of egoity—and, thus, cuts
down the entire “tree” of egoity, at the
“root”—even from the beginning of the
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam, and by
Means of whole bodily devotional recognition-response to
Me.

Even in the midst of My many Years of Self-Submission to
My devotees and the “world”, I always Communicated
My “Radical” Reality-Teaching—and I always
Manifested My Self-“Bright” (seventh stage) State
of Realization—in the eyes of everyone. However, the
“dialogue” of My Years of Self-Submission
is—now, and forever hereafter—ended. My Divine
Avataric Self-Submission is Finished and Complete. My
Reality-Teaching, in all Its detail, is Fully and Completely
Given.

If you devotionally recognize Me and devotionally respond
to Me, you are (thereby) moved beyond the patterning of the
psycho-physical faculties, to Me—to My Intrinsically
egoless and Self-Evidently Divine State, My Self-Evidently
Divine Person. Thus, the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam Is
“radical”—in the devotional sense—from
the beginning.

Devotion to Me is not conventional devotionalism—in
the sense of the first three stages of life, or even in the
sense of the fourth stage of life. Devotion to Me is
“radical” devotion, enacted through devotional
recognition-response to Me—turning the four
psycho-physical faculties to Me, and ignoring all the
contents and patterning of ego-“I”.

“Radical” devotion to Me is, itself, the seed
of most fundamental “self”-understanding. If such
“radical” devotion to Me is the case, most
fundamental “self”-understanding will be readily
awakened—because “self”-understanding is
already established as the circumstance of your practice of
the “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam,
through devotional recognition-response to Me (or persistent
devotion to Me, based on devotional recognition of Me).

True devotional recognition of Me is devotional Communion
with Me As I Am. Merely to perceive Me as a physical Entity,
and to be (thereby) moved to respond to Me in some
conventionally devotionalistic sense, is not true devotional
recognition of Me. When you truly devotionally recognize Me,
your devotional (and, in due course, Transcendental
Spiritual) relationship to Me cuts through the
“root” of egoity. Such is the “radical”
devotional (and, in due course, Transcendental Spiritual)
relationship to Me. And, by cutting through the
“root” of egoity, the “radical”
devotional (and, in due course, Transcendental Spiritual)
relationship to Me leads directly (and in due course) to the
only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Perfect Practice”
of the “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam.

Thus, the lifetime of My devotee is not to be a lifetime
of “correcting” the ego. Nor is the lifetime of My
devotee to be a lifetime of developing the psycho-physical
potential of the ego (or the psycho-physically incarnated
apparent individual, or apparently separate person). Rather,
the lifetime of My devotee is to be a lifetime of
transcending the ego.

This “‘radical’-from-the-beginning”
characteristic of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam is
given concrete and unambiguous expression by My Divine
Avataric Gift of the preliminary “Perfect
Knowledge” Listening-practice to all My First
Congregation devotees (who have, necessarily, demonstrated
and proven their right, true, and real devotion to Me). This
“Radical” Gift of Mine does not eliminate the
requirement for devotional turning to Me, or for the
exercise of all the by-Me-Given forms of
“self”-discipline, or (altogether) for the
demonstration of all the by-Me-Given modes of practice of
the “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam.
Rather, the right and true context of your practice of the
only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Radical”
Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam is your devotional (and, in
due course, Transcendental Spiritual) recognition of Me, and
your participation in the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“radical” approach to the transcending of egoity.
That “radical” approach is (itself)
direct—not progressive. Therefore, that
“radical” approach is always effective—in the
perfect sense—moment to moment. Nevertheless, that
“radical” approach requires (and makes possible) a
demonstration that matures (by means of the preliminary
Listening-practice) toward the (eventual) Non-conditional
Demonstration of the “Perfect Practice” of the
Reality-Way of “Perfect Knowledge”.

The preliminary Listening-practice of “Perfect
Knowledge” is a Teaching That I have Given at the
“End-Time” of My Years of Teaching-Submission.
That preliminary Listening-practice is usable, in the
fullest sense, only by those who devotionally recognize Me
(As I Am), who are devotionally turned to Me (As I Am), and
who (thereby) have the ego under-cut by Communing with Me,
moment to moment. Such is the most fundamental secret of
practice in My Divine Avataric Company: Practice of the
only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Radical”
Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam is not a
“technique”, but a relationship. That practice is
devotion to Me (As I Am)—necessarily associated with
the exercise of the Reality-Way of “Perfect
Knowledge” (at first, in a preliminary sense, and,
ultimately, in the “Perfect Practice” sense). All
other aspects of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam are
simply the fullness of the practice as it is lived, day by
day—such that the entire life (and the whole body) of
My devotee is conformed to Me and this “Perfect
Knowledge” life.

The preliminary “Perfect Knowledge”
Listening-practice is not a “something” to be
exercised in and of itself (independent of the devotional
relationship to Me). My devotees must understand: The
preliminary “Perfect Knowledge” Listening-practice
can be rightly (and fruitfully) exercised only in the
context of the (necessarily, formally acknowledged)
devotional relationship to Me. Thus, the fundamental
characteristics of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam are,
altogether, the devotional recognition-response to Me, the
devotional (whole bodily) turning to Me of the four
principal faculties (to the degree of true surrender to Me),
the exercise of the by-Me-Given disciplines of right life,
and the exercise of the preliminary form of the Reality-Way
of “Perfect Knowledge” (until, in due course, that
preliminary form becomes the Ultimate, and Non-conditional,
“Perfect Practice” of the “Radical”
Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam).

The Ultimate, and Non-conditional, “Perfect
Practice” of the “Radical” Reality-Way of
Adidam Ruchiradam occurs in due course. Until then, the
preliminary form of the Reality-Way of “Perfect
Knowledge” is to be practiced by all My formally
acknowledged First Congregation devotees, from the time of
their formal sacramental Initiation into that practice of
the “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam—and that preliminary form of the Reality-Way
of “Perfect Knowledge” is to be continued, by all
members of the Forward Lay Congregationist Order of Adidam
Ruchiradam and all novice participants in the Lay Renunciate
Order of Adidam Ruchiradam and the Ruchira Sannyasin Order
of Adidam Ruchiradam, who are, as such, My formally
acknowledged First Congregation devotees.

I do not change—but My devotee must go through a
process.

Devotion to Me, and the exercise of “Perfect
Knowledge”—that is the only-by-Me Revealed and
Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam.
All other aspects of My Instruction in the practice of the
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam
(including My Instruction in the necessary disciplines of
right life) are the necessary elaboration of the culture of
that practice.

The devotional (and, in due course, Transcendental
Spiritual) relationship to Me is Transmitted by virtue of My
Self-Evidently Divine Person, My Self-Evidently Divine
State, and My Self-“Bright” Self-Transmission
(Which Is Transcendental Spiritual in Nature). My
Self-“Bright” Self-Transmission Is What Brings
About the Ultimate Fulfillment of the only-by-Me Revealed
and Given Reality-Way of “Perfect
Knowledge”—in the form of the Non-conditional (or
“Perfect Practice”) Demonstration of “Perfect
Knowledge”. Nevertheless, the only-by-Me Revealed and
Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam
does not become the Reality-Way of “Perfect
Knowledge”. Rather, the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam Is the
Reality-Way of “Perfect Knowledge” from the
beginning—not as a mere philosophy, or as a mere
“self”-applied “technique”, but as the
right and true and real devotional (and, in due course,
Transcendental Spiritual) relationship to Me.

The Reality-Way of “Perfect Knowledge” is not
about the developmental stages of life (in and of
themselves). Rather, the Reality-Way of “Perfect
Knowledge” Is a Free Way, about the Free Reali-zation
of Reality Itself (Which Is Self-Evidently Divine).
Therefore, the Reality-Way of “Perfect Knowledge”
(Which Is the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam) Is an
Intrinsically ego-transcending Way—from Its
beginning.

In every moment of true devotional turning to Me, the
practice of the “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam is non-egoic (or Intrinsically ego-transcending,
rather than making egoic psycho-physical structures
themselves the means of practice). Therefore, from the
beginning, right devotionally Me-recognizing and
devotionally to-Me-responding practice of the only-by-Me
Revealed and only-by-Me Given “Radical”
Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam always intrinsically
transcends “self”-contraction, and all bondage to
the accumulations (in and as and of the
body-mind-“self”) that occur as a result of
psycho-physical “self”-contraction (or the act of
egoity). The true devotional turning to Me goes beyond all
of that. Thus, there is the spontaneous unfolding of the
signs of the release of ego-bondage during the entire course
of preliminary Listening-practice (maturing, in due course,
into the demonstration that establishes the “Perfect
Practice”). Nevertheless, the “experiential”
signs of the release of ego-bondage are not themselves the
point of the preliminary Listening-practice of the
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam.

The practice of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam is not
a matter of doing something to (intentionally, or
strategically) “stand back”. You are Always
Already in the Perfectly Prior Position, in and As Which you
engage the right preliminary Listening-practice of
“Perfect Knowledge”. It is not that you must do
something to what is “objective”, or to what takes
the form of the “known”, or of
“knowledge”, or of the
“knowing-subject”. In the context of its arising,
there is the noticing of “object”, or of the
“known”, or of the apparent “knowledge”,
or of the apparent “knowing-subject”—but you
are the “Perfect Knower” (Transcendentally, and
Inherently, Free). Therefore, you are never any
“known-object” or any mode of the
“knowing-subject” in the context of any and all
apparent arisings.

Therefore, you do not—if you are rightly exercising
the preliminary Listening-practice of “Perfect
Knowledge”—make any effort or gesture to
“stand back” (or to “step back”). In
other words, you are not Called by Me to continuously make a
gesture that somehow changes the Perfectly Prior Position in
and As Which you Always Already Stand. I do not Call or
Instruct you to “return” to the Position in Which
you Always Already Stand. I simply Call and Instruct you to
acknowledge and Abide in the Always Perfectly Prior Position
in Which you Always Already Stand.

Thus, moment to moment, simply Stand in the Position you
are Always Already in—by clearly “Knowing”
(or Intrinsically Self-Comprehending) that you are not in
any “position” (or conditional state) other than
That.

You are not an “object”. You are not anything
“known”. You are not any kind of
“knowing” (or “knowledge”). You are not
any mode or kind of a “knowing-subject”. You are
Always Already in the Position of That Which is not an
“object”. You are Always Already in the
Self-Position of the “Perfect Knower”—but
that “Perfect Knower” is not the apparently
separate “self” (or ego-“I”) that is
“functioning-as-knower-through-the-faculties”. The
merely conditional “knower” is “knowing”
the “known”—and is (thus and thereby)
identical to the “knowing”-function and the
apparent “knowledge”. The Transcendental Spiritual
“Perfect Knower” is not any of that. The
Transcendental Spiritual “Perfect Knower” is not a
“known-object” and not a
“knowing-subject”.

Therefore, the preliminary Listening-practice of
“Perfect Knowledge” is not merely a philosophical
proposition. Rather, the preliminary Listening-practice of
“Perfect Knowledge” is the Tacit Self-Apprehension
(or the Intuitive Self-Apperception), moment to moment, of
That Which otherwise seems to take the form of
“objects”, or the “known”, or the
“knowledge”, or the psycho-physical faculty (or
presumed “knowing-self”) of the
“knowing” of the “knowledge”. All of
that is “objective”. All of that is mere
“object”—but the Transcendental Spiritual
“Perfect Knower” Is Always Already Perfectly Prior
to any and every mode of “known-object” and any
and every mode of “knowing-subject”.

No “object” is “known”, as such, by
the Transcendental Spiritual “Perfect Knower”. The
Transcendental Spiritual “Perfect Knower” Is That
Which is always Inherently Self-Indicated by
“Transcendental Root-Standing” relative to any
“known-object”, anything conditionally
“known”, any conditional “knowing”, any
mode of conditional “knowledge”, and any mode of
conditionally “knowing” (and, thus, conditionally
existing) “self”. “Transcendental
Root-Standing” simply Self-Indicates the Transcendental
Spiritual “Perfect Knower”—Which Is Always
Already Perfectly Prior to all modes of conditionally
arising “known-objects” and all modes and
operations of a presumed conditionally arising
“knowing-self”. The Transcendental Spiritual
“Perfect Knower” Only and Always Already
“Knows” (or Self-Apprehends, or Self-Apperceives)
Itself (or the Perfectly Prior and Transcendental Spiritual
Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State Itself)—and
all conditionally arising “known-objects” and all
modes and operations of a presumed conditionally arising
“knowing-self” are, Most Ultimately (in the
context of the “Perfect Practice” of the
only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life),
Divinely Self-Recognized to be merely apparent,
non-necessary, and intrinsically non-binding modifications
of the Transcendental Spiritual “Perfect Knower”
(or Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State) Itself.

PART II

The Distinction Between The Preliminary
Listening-Practice of Perfect Knowledge and The Perfect
Practice of Perfect Knowledge

When you are Priorly (or Always Already) Established in
and As That Self-Position Which Is the Transcendental
Spiritual “Perfect Knower”, It Is
Non-“objective”—It has no form, It has no
mind. It does not “know” conditionally. It does
not “know” any conditional “knowledge”,
or anything otherwise conditionally “known”, or
any conditionally arising “object” at all. Only
That Transcendental Spiritual Self-Position Is Truly and
Self-Evidently Prior.

The preliminary Listening-practice of “Perfect
Knowledge” is the Tacit (by-Me-Given) Reality-Way of
simply Self-“Locating”, moment to moment, the
Self-Position in Which you Always Already (or Always
Priorly) Stand.

Ultimately, when there is (by Means of My Avatarically
Self-Transmitted Divine Transcendental Spiritual Grace) the
Perfect Realization of the Self-Position in Which you Always
Already Stand, then there is no more practice to be done in
relation to the conditional (psycho-physical) apparatus.
Then, no preliminary exercise is any longer required to
Self-Indicate (or Self-“Locate”) That Native
Self-Position. You simply Are That—and That Is That. It
Is That—and That is the end of it. There is no further
preliminary exercise to be done. There is no conditional
(psycho-physical) apparatus (whether gross, subtle, or
causal) that needs to be used, changed, manipulated, or
otherwise gone beyond in any manner (or by any conditionally
applied means) whatsoever—because the Perfectly Prior
(or Transcendental Spiritual) Self-Position is not merely
re-“Located” (or “Found” again) moment
to moment, but (rather) It is Priorly (or Intrinsically, and
Always Already) Self-Established.

Such is the distinction between the preliminary
Listening-practice of “Perfect Knowledge” and the
(eventual) “Perfect Practice” of “Perfect
Knowledge”. In the case of the preliminary
Listening-practice of “Perfect Knowledge”, you are
always (in effect) re-“Locating” Where you Always
Already Are. In the case of the “Perfect Practice”
of “Perfect Knowledge”, you Always Already Are
Where (and As) you Always Already Are. In the context of the
“Perfect Practice”, Where (or As What) you Are is
(simply) Self-Evidently the Case—and, therefore, no
further intentional (or conditionally exercised) practice is
required to re-“Locate” Where (or As What) you
Always Already Are. Such is the Perfect, or Non-conditional,
Demonstration of “Perfect Knowledge”.

Thus, the only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Perfect
Practice” of the “Radical” Reality-Way of
Adidam Ruchiradam is not, in and of itself, a matter of the
exercise of the “twelve-part process” 2 of
“Radical Self-Abiding”. “Radical
Self-Abiding” is, fundamentally (and Always Already),
simply the Self-Comprehending (or Self-Apprehending, or
Self-Apperceiving) of the Perfectly Prior (and
Transcendental Spiritual) Self-Position (or Self-Nature,
Self-Condition, and Self-State) Which has Priorly (and
Always Already) been Self-Established. To demonstrate the
“Perfect Practice” of “Perfect
Knowledge” is simply to persist in That Intrinsic
Self-“Locating” of the Self-Position (or
Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State) in and As Which
you Always Already Self-Abide. Such is the fundamental
demonstration of the three parts of the only-by-Me Revealed
and Given “Perfect Practice” of the
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam. In the
context of the “Perfect Practice” of the
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam, the
Witness-Position Is simply (and Always Already, or
Self-Evidently) So—always, and to begin with.
Furthermore, in the context of the “Perfect
Practice” of the “Radical” Reality-Way of
Adidam Ruchira-dam, the Witness-Position Is (Thus) simply So
without any other context or practice required for any kind
of confirming (or re-confirming) of It, or
Self-Comprehending (or Self-Apprehending) of It, or to
establish the Self-Abiding As It. Such is the fundamental
process of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Perfect
Practice” of the “Radical” Reality-Way of
Adidam Ruchiradam.

When the “Perfect Practice” becomes fully
established As the Tacit Fullness of the Divine Conscious
Light (and not merely as the Self-Contained
“Subject”-mode of
Consciousness-apart-from-“objects”)—and,
thus, when the “Bright” of My Own Divine Avataric
Self-Transmission has entirely undermined all presumption of
“otherness” and “difference”—My
Transcendental Spiritual Self-Transmission of Self-Radiance
is Non-conditionally Self-Apprehended As the Divine
Conscious Light, or As Self-Existing and Self-Radiant
Consciousness Itself.

Consciousness Itself as the
“Subject”-Only—distinguished as That Which is
entirely Non-“object”, or discerned exclusively,
apart from (or somehow dissociated from)
“objects”—necessarily feels a tacit sense of
“difference”. But the Fullest Realization of My
“Bright” Transcendental Spiritual
Self-Transmission is of such a Nature that all differences
are (Ultimately) Intrinsically Transcended, and Perfectly
Outshined, in Perfectly Non-exclusive Divine Self-Abiding
Self-Recognition of all “objects” (or all apparent
differences and even the tacit sense of
“difference” itself) As the One and Only and
Intrinsically Indivisible and Intrinsically egoless Divine
Conscious Light Itself. There are no differences—and
That Is the Nature of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
seventh stage Realization.

Consciousness and “objects” are not
“different”. They Are One Indivisible,
Self-Existing, Self-Radiant, and Inherently Non-separate
(and, Thus, Perfectly egoless) Conscious Light—Utterly
and Self-Evidently without “difference”. That Is
the Nature of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh
stage Realization.

In the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of
life, there are no differences.

In the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of
life, there is not an “object”.

In the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of
life, there is no “not-Self”.

In the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of
life, there is Only the Divine Conscious Light—Which is
not “different” from “objects”. The
“known” and the “knowledge” and the
“knowing” are, in Reality, not
“different” from the Transcendental Spiritual
“Perfect Knower”. However, That Is a Most
Perfectly Non-conditional, Tran-scendental, Inherently
Spiritual, Intrinsically egoless, and Self-Evidently Divine
Realization.

The characteristic of the Realization associated with the
sixth stage of life is that there is a
“difference” between the “Subject” and
the “object”—even though the
“Subject” is of a Non-conditional (or
Transcendental) Nature. This is due to the nature of the
characteristic sixth stage orientation, which, by means of
the exercise of dissociative introversion, strategically
turns away from “objects”—by turning back
upon the presumed “knowing-subject”. However, the
characteristic of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam (from
the beginning, and as a whole), and (therefore) the
characteristic of the Perfect Realization that indicates the
only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life, is the
characteristic of the Indivisible Divine Conscious Light,
Itself—in Which there is no dissociative introversion
upon any presumed “knowing-subject” and no
presumption of “difference” between Consciousness
and “objects”. In That Most Perfect State of
Intrinsically egoless (or Perfectly “subjectless”)
and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Realization, all apparent
“objects” are, through My Divine Avataric
Transcendental Spiritual Self-Transmission of the
“Bright” (or the Indivisible Conscious Light)
Itself, cancelled in their separateness (or their
characteristic of “difference”).

The Divine Conscious Light Is One, Indivisible
Force—Which Is Self-Existing and Self-Radiant
Consciousness (Itself). There Is no “difference”
between Consciousness and Light. That Is the seventh stage
Realization. And That Is My Divine Avataric Self-Revelation,
and My Unique Divine Avataric Self-Manifestation. The
Totality of My Divine Avataric Reality-Teaching corresponds
to That, from beginning to end.

Even from Its beginning, the only-by-Me Revealed and
Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam
is not about the developmental stages of life themselves.
Even from Its beginning, the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam is
about the “Perfect Knowledge” That is Awakened by
the tacit devotional recognition—and, altogether, whole
bodily (or total psycho-physical), devotional,
Transcendental, and (in due course) Spiritual
“Locating” and “Knowing”—of Me (As
I Am). In That devotional Communion with Me, the four
psycho-physical faculties are whole-bodily-responsively
turned to Me, and the content or patterning of the
psycho-physical faculties is (thus and thereby) forgotten in
that Non-“objective” Communion with Me As I Am.
Thus, “Perfect Knowledge” of Me is Inherent in the
right and true devotional recognition-response to Me.

“Perfect Knowledge” is a Divine Transcendental
Spiritual Gift, Avatarically Given by Me. “Perfect
Knowledge” is not something you “practice” as
a kind of philosophical exercise.

Most Perfect Realization of Consciousness Itself Is
Love-Bliss Itself. Love-Bliss-Consciousness Itself Is the
Divine Transcendental Spiritual Conscious Light—Which
Utterly Releases all forms of ego-bondage, and Which (Most
Ultimately) Outshines everything.

Therefore, the true “Root”-Practice of
“Perfect Knowledge” is not a matter of presuming
(in the sixth stage manner) that “self”-conscious
“awareness” (or the presumed
“knowing-self”)—inverted upon itself, and
strategically dissociated from its apparent
“objects”—Is Truth. When I Instruct you in
the “Root”-Practice of “Perfect
Knowledge”, I am not Calling you to invert your
attention upon your otherwise everyday
“self”-consciousness (or presumed conditional
“knowing-self”), and (thus and thereby) to exclude
the “objective thingness” of life. The
“self”-conscious “awareness” (or
presumed “knowing-self”, or
ego-“I”-presumption) that sits “behind”
the perception and cognition of “objects” is not
Really existing—and, in any case, it is not, itself (or
as a presumed “self”-idea), Love-Bliss.
Exclusionary “self”-consciousness is not a
Spiritual State.

In My Communication of the Reality-Way of “Perfect
Knowledge”, I am not suggesting that you should perform
an inward-turned act of dissociation from
“objects”, or that you should strategically
disconnect from “things”, or that you should treat
“objects” and “things” in a kind of
xenophobic manner, as if they are “enemy-aliens”.
Indeed, I must correct all such mistaken notions in My
devotees.

The idea that “self”-conscious
“awareness”, inverted upon itself, and (thus and
thereby) strategically dissociated from its perceptual and
conceptual “objects”, is Most Perfect Divine
Self-Realization is an ego-based notion. Only Perfectly
egoless Self-Realization of the Intrinsically Transcendental
Spiritual Reality—Priorly and Perfectly Self-Existing,
Intrinsically Self-Evident, and Non-conditionally
Self-Radiant—Is Most Perfect (and Intrinsically
egoless) Divine Self-Realization. Most Perfect Divine
Self-Realization Is the State of Perfect
Love-Bliss-Radiance, the Inherent Radiance of the
Self-Existing Reality That Is Conscious Light. It is only
when the Spiritual Reality of the Divine Conscious Light is
Realized that arising “objects” and the
“shadow-self” (or the illusion of an
“object”-reflecting “knowing-self”, or
ego-“I”) can be Divinely Self-Recognized.

In the beginning of your practice of the only-by-Me
Revealed and Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam, to engage the preliminary Listening-practice of
“Perfect Knowledge” is not yet to be Established
in Perfect Love-Bliss-Fullness. Such is the distinction
between the preliminary Listening-practice of “Perfect
Knowledge” and the Most Perfect Realization of
“Perfect Knowledge”: Most Perfect Realization of
“Perfect Knowledge” Is the Perfectly
Transcendental and Inherently Spiritual Divine Self-Nature,
Self-Condition, and Self-State. Most Perfect Realization of
“Perfect Knowledge” Is Self-Existing and
Self-Radiant—and Absolute.

The preliminary Listening-practice of “Perfect
Knowledge” is not a practice of inwardly-concentrated
inversion upon any “subjective” state or principle
of a “knowing-self”, or any kind of ego-effort to
exclude “objects” from the field of perceptual and
conceptual awareness. Rather, the preliminary
Listening-practice of “Perfect Knowledge” is the
practice of Always Already Self-Standing As the Always
Already Self-Evident State That Is Always Already
Free-Standing Prior to “objects”. Thus and So,
when the preliminary Listening-practice of “Perfect
Knowledge” becomes fully and finally Demonstrated As
the “Perfect Practice” of “Perfect
Knowledge”, all-and-All Is Divinely Self-Recognized in
and As That Perfectly Prior Self-State—and all-and-All
is Outshined in and As That Perfectly Prior Self-State,
without excluding the apparent conditionally arising
“world” of perceptions, and without any
dissociative introversion upon a presumed
“knowing-self” (or ego-“I”).

The only-by-Me Revealed and only-by-Me Given Means for
the Most Perfect Realization of Me are here—now, and
forever hereafter. And the only-by-Me Revealed and
only-by-Me Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam
Ruchiradam is, from beginning to end, about the Divine
Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State Itself (or the
Intrinsically egoless Nature, Condition, and State of
Reality Itself, or of Truth Itself, or of Real Acausal
God).

The conventional idea of “God” as the Great
“Other”, Who is the “Maker” of things,
and of separate egos, and so forth, is a concept of ordinary
(or exoteric) “religiosity”—an idea that
comes from the ego-position of “self”-contracted
identification with the body-mind-“self”. From the
standpoint of that conventional concept of
“Creator-God”, there is already “a body in a
cosmos”—and you are seeking to account for why the
body is there. That is where the conventional
“Creator-God” myth comes from. However, if you are
in the Reality-Position, all of what conditionally arises
has a totally Transcendental Spiritual context of
significance—and All of all-and-All is Comprehended
(or, rather, Self-Apprehended) in an Utterly
Non-differentiated Manner. That Is the Ultimate Matter of
Reality and Truth—or of Real (Acausal) God.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage
Reality-Way is on the “Other Side” of (or
Perfectly Prior to) egoity—whereas all conventional
“religiosity” is “made” on “this
side” of egoity, or from the position (or “point
of view”) of egoity itself, and (thus) from the
position (or “point of view”) of separateness, and
of the “world” as a “something” which
already exists, and which you account for through
devotionalistic feeling and philosophical notions about the
“Divine Nature” of “things”. But all of
that is merely imaginative speculation, based on an
ego-“I”, sitting in a conditionally apparent
“room”—rather than transcending the
categories of the apparently separate person, the apparent
“objectivity” of the “world”, the
apparent “knowledge” of it, and the futile
ego-effort to figure out how “this” is (somehow)
coming from (or being “caused” by) an
“Ultimate Source” That Is Beyond all
conditions.

The Perfect Reality-Way must Always Already Stand Beyond
and Prior to the position (or “point of view”) of
the separate entity in a conditionally apparent
“room”.

The True (and Truly Perfect) “First Room”,
then, Is simply the “Place” of Ultimate (or
Perfect) “Consideration”, the “Place” of
the Ultimate “Brightness” of the Perfect
Self-Realization of Reality Itself. The True (and Inherently
Perfect) “First Room” Is the Self-Existing and
Self-Radiant “Room” That Is Reality
Itself—and the Self-Existing and Self-Radiant
“Room” That Is Reality Itself is Inherently
without “difference”. The Inherently Perfect
“First Room” Is Non-conditional and Indivisible.
The Inherently Perfect “First Room” Is
Self-“Bright” (or Self-Existing and Self-Radiant)
Conscious Light.

Right practice of the only-by-Me Revealed and only-by-Me
Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam
Always Already and Intrinsically Transcends all of the
developmental stages of life. It Always Already and
Intrinsically Transcends all ordinariness of egoic living.
It Always Already and Intrinsically Transcends all
conventional “religiosity”, and all the
conventional and ego-based ideas of “Reality”, and
of “God”, and so forth, that come with the
“all” of ego-“I”.

Right practice of the only-by-Me Revealed and only-by-Me
Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam
Always Already and Intrinsically Transcends all conventional
esotericism of a Spiritual Nature, and all “Ultimate
Exercises” of a psycho-physical kind which have been
used as means to seek Realization and Enlightenment by
countless people, for all of human time.

Right practice of the only-by-Me Revealed and only-by-Me
Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam
Always Already and Intrinsically Transcends all seeking for
Reality, Truth, and “God”.

My Divine Avataric Self-Revelation Is the Self-Revelation
of Reality Itself—Which Is Self-Evidently Divine and
Indivisible.

I Am That. I am not merely communicating a philosophy
about That.

I Am the Means for the Most Perfect Divine
Self-Realization of Reality.

I Am the Perfect Realization, and I Am the Way of the
Perfect Realization, and I Give the Perfect Teaching of That
Perfect Realization.

My Fundamental Reality-Teaching Is the
“Radical” Communication of “Perfect
Knowledge” and of the “Radical” Reality-Way
of the true and perfect devotional recognition of Me.

The Reality-Way That I Divinely Avatarically Reveal and
Give Is the Divine Reality-Way of the
“Bright”—Which Is My Divine Avataric
Self-Manifestation, from Birth, and Always Already
Per-fectly Prior to Birth, and Always Already now, and
(therefore) always forever hereafter, even forever after My
Divine Avataric physical human Lifetime.

Therefore, I have always Said—and It Is So—that
I must be devotionally recognized, As I Am. I must be
devotionally recognized—if the devotional relationship
to Me is to be fruitful as the Awakening of My any and each
and every devotee to the actual right “Perfect
Knowledge” practice of the “Radical”
Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam, and (in due course) to
Most Perfect Divine Self-Realization.

My true devotees do not merely attain to Me eventually.
My true devotees begin with Me. And the entire
“Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam Is with
Me—in My House.

In the course of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given
devotional practice of Abiding with Me in My “First
Room”, My true devotee (in the always
“radical”, or “at-the-root”, context of
practice-demonstration) out-grows all the possible kinds of
phenomenal associations—but My true devotee is always
(even Perfectly) with Me the entire time.

My true devotee’s ego-transcending devotional
Communion with Me intrinsically transcends all that may
apparently happen—or merely seem to happen—in the
conditionally apparent “world”-and-lifetime that
appears to arise in the conditionally arising
“Happening” that appears in apparent association
with the Perfect Context and Domain of the “First
Room” of Me.
