Beezone is a
nonprofit (501(c)3) educational foundation library,
launched January 1998. The many materials (2000+
pages) on the Beezone are categorized under the
general heading of ‘spirituality.’ The library is
my ongoing study and attempt to understand and
preserve what the great traditions and schools of
religion, philosophy, psychology and other central
categories of human understanding have developed
over the centuries. Today modern understanding is
emerging, transforming and in many cases discarding
traditional views. My work with the Beezone is to
expand and integrate the ancient wisdom of
yesterday with today’s rational, scientific and materialistic

Who am I, Who are You and What are we

To make this introduction short and to the
point, my exploration, studying, and meditation on
fundamental questions lead me on a journey to Adi
Da Samraj (d. 2008), a guru. I understand that
being born and raised in America and confessing
‘that I sit at the feet of a guru’ seems quite
strange and even deluded. But believe me, it’s
nothing of the sort. I am not a formal student of
Adidam (the official Church of the Way of Adi Da).
I was for a time (1983-1986) but now recognized as
a friend and supporter of their work (see my visit
to Adidaashram below).

My journey remains, as Adi Da is not the answer nor a destination, he may be a question to some,
but he is certainly no answer. My journey is the
same as yours, ongoing. The Beezone is a continuous
consideration and study of The Great Wonder of
Wonders. “What’s it all about”, “Who am I”, “What
am I suppose to be doing”, AND “What about
the state of the world we live in today”. I believe
these “wonders” are important to consider since we
must live together and ultimatley leave with our
“house” in order for those who follow.

The name Beezone came from the term Beehive.
This metaphor was also used in a secret school that
existed in Afghanistan thousands of years ago
called Sarmoun
, which means “The Beehive” or the
“Collectors of Honey”. The Beehive refers to the
ultimate Source of Wisdom, the Realizer, and the
function of the Guru. The Beehive is where bees
organize themselves by serving the Queen and making
honey. Since I am not in any “hive” but am the zone
of many influences, I chose the term Beezone to
represent my relationship to the literature,
centers and people that are the of ancient and
modern holders of Wisdom.

May you be blessed and find Beezone helpful in
your investigation and study of the journey we all
call Life.

Only Measure

Why waste time in the wake, the
churning of mind and memory, go to the
root. Fundamentally it’s about the Source.
The One and Only and the Realization of
that One. It is an ordeal, hard work, and
a matter of importance or you could say, a
matter of life and death, not about belief
and story, but about realization and

Talk and story are secondary,
reflective, and possibly (hopefully)
instructive. There are Truth and Reality.
There is the communication, the
transmission of Realization by the
Realizer, the Source; the Realization of
One as Two. The transparence of such a One
is not reflective nor projected. It is
inclusive, already established at the
root, not in its wake.

Therefore, there is sadhana, the work,
without a sugar coated candy cane or a
hopeful promise of salvation. –

“The Truth is
yourself, but not your mere bodily
Your real self is higher than ‘you’ and
This visible ‘you’ which you fancy to be
Is limited in place, the real ‘you’ is not
Why, O pearl, linger you trembling in your
Esteem not yourself mere sugar-cane, but
This outward ‘you’ is foreign to your real
Cling to your real self, quit this
