WHAT IS ITS ESSENCE
1974

Bubba Free John (Adi Da
Samraj)

 

STUDENT: We’re talking
about Realization and what that would be if we would only
commune with you, be with you. No doubt you’ve said it
a thousand times before.

ADI DA SAMRAJ: At least that
many times.

STUDENT: What is it’s
essence? What does it really mean to commune with you?
What is the essence of that?

ADI DA SAMRAJ: Its essence
is not what it means. Its essence is the action. You are
presently obsessed with your logic and
the
destiny
that you conceive
from your present born point of view.

Your present point of view has its
own gesture. It has all of its own impulses, it’s action and
motion. Your present point of view has its whole future
outlined in desire and it would do if it were dramatized,
incarnated. Your present point of view wants nothing to do
with My Consideration. Your destiny is in desire,
knowledge and experience and all the things that bypass this
consideration. But if you will
Hear
me
, then your attention will
be liberated from destiny, from time and space.

That doesn’t mean that you will
not see tendencies and see your present life and so forth,
it will continue and it will be the discipline of your
existence. On the other hand, your attention will remain
with Me and it will not be confused by destinies, by
desires, by thoughts. It will be fixed. It will be absolute.
It will be full of love. It will be heartfelt without logic,
without thinking, without desiring. It will be pure
attention and that attention is communion.

Wherever your attention lies without
confusion, that is what you realize. If you will give Me
your attention through
True
Hearing
, if you will be
moved, gravitated toward me in every moment so that all of
your desiring, even your inevitability becomes superficial
and all of that quality that arises from moment to moment
will be truly superficial. Its impact will be lost. It
won’t create incarnation. It will create heat
only.

It will be frustrated in its goal
and you will meditate on the fire and that fire will be your
attention to Me so that your attention from hour to hour
will become more fiery, more intense, more loving, more
sacrificial, more absurd, less and less the character that
you are born to be and live and die but you see there must
come into your case a sympathy more profound than your
inevitability, a sympathy more profound than your
logic.

Your logic, your presumption will
remain, as artifacts of your subjectivity but your attention
will stay with Me. It will stay with Me at every moment.
When We are present with One Another in our born forms, your
natural emotional sympathy will stay with Me.

We will love One Another absolutely
and when we are not in One Another’s sight, we will
recollect One Another in love, sometimes in thought also,
but in love and sympathy. In feeling attention we will stay
with One Another and so My meditation will be your
meditation because you are with Me.

You commune with Me. It has nothing
to do with whether I live or die once you realize your
attachment to Me.
