Urge For
Sanctuary

Adi Da Samraj

 

To
create a human sanctuary for higher adaptation of the human
species is a primal human urge. We inherently desire a human
and natural environment in which we can live without the
chronic production of stress chemistry. We know, deeply,
psychically, that we cannot realize that transformation
until we can create a culture in which people can live
without degenerative stress. Thus, sanctuary, or spiritual
community, is the motive in humans that contain the genetic
secret of the next stage in human evolution.

We presently live under stress, in a
subhuman culture whose populace is completely confused even
in the most elemental levels of existence. We are all
involved in an animal-like struggle for survival without
much intelligence. Such a circumstance tends to stimulate a
chemical profusion in the body that enables it to function
and survive under stress, but that chemical design does not
allow the higher psychic and subtle centers of the body-mind
to awaken. On the contrary, this stress chemistry triggers
the degenerative processes of aging as well as all other
forms of bodily degeneration, and this same stress chemistry
is generally empty of the profound genetic signals that can
trigger the higher evolutionary functions of Man.

Until we have created a human order
that is fundamentally free of mutual threat, it will not be
common for people to live in a truly awakened and peaceful
state, not only of mind, but of body (or the total
body-mind). The evolutionary mechanism of the bodily being
is programmed to awaken its next higher centers of function
only when the chronic problems of its lower functional
centers have been solved and when the being can live without
chronically creating degenerative stress
chemistry.

The body-mind must receive the
signals that the stressful world has been overcome, that we
need not fear, that we presently have a peaceful human
society, not a society full of bombs and benighted
craziness. You can perhaps make yourself more comfortable by
becoming free of some of the anxiety of your ordinary daily
life, but you cannot thus become so peaceful that the right
hemisphere of the brain and the higher evolutionary
mechanisms of the body-mind as a whole are stimulated. To
enter into your higher human destiny, you must be altogether
“cured” in your deep psychic heart.

Certainly, we would like the quality
of our existence to be different. But people in general are
not yet moving toward anything significantly different.
Thus, the would-be human world is yet a lower-adapted,
subhuman world. Perhaps some people are more highly
evolved-people who can live an apparently moral, ecstatic,
or spiritually devoted life but they are not common. Most
people are fixed in their adaptation to living under stress,
and they do not know enough to create human and spiritual
sanctuary for themselves.

How, then, will you come to that
point of feeling totally without anxiety, without fear,
without any of the ordinary mortal consciousness in the
midst of your daily life? How will you transcend that fear?
You cannot until you overcome the lower evolutionary
dimension of the body-mind, which is oriented to a life of
physical distress and the struggle to survive bodily,
including the stress of feeling that you are mortal, that
perhaps when you die you are just plain dead. Until you
enjoy a greater consciousness, you can never be certain
about the matter of your death……
