The Bright – Amrita Nadi – The Light of Consciousness – Adi Da Samraj



“Listening”

“The teaching word
is for listening and it reveals the Way”

“…at the
beginning, in the listening stages of the Way of the Heart,
it is a form of pondering that serves
self-observation”

“So the listening
process is a process and it has stages and you can’t really
understand the later stages until you have fulfilled the
earlier stages.”

 

Listening

“To practice fruitfully,
therefore, there must be self-understanding.
Self-understanding is fundamental to the practice of the Way
of the Heart from the beginning. That is why the practice is
called “listening” from the beginning. It is real
“consideration”, from the beginning.”

Religious
Realism – Perpetual “reality
consideration”


“…the first level of our Way,
which involves listening to the point of hearing, is so
profound. It calls you to confront my Argument and to
consider it all together, with every aspect of the
personality, in the emotional domain.”

Your
Hidden Destiny


“The process of listening whereby
you allow the ego to be identified with the body mind is not
merely some interior drama. It’s just the first step in a
process in which you find out the ‘I’ .

You find out the ego. The whole
process of becoming ‘I’ in the body is to discover the ego
and understand it and transcend it.”

Beyond
the Koan


“So the listening process is a
process and it has stages and you can’t really understand
the later stages until you have fulfilled the earlier
stages. So that
Chapter
19
(The Dawn Horse
Testament) is a condensation, an elaboration of all of the
sequences of the listening process.”

Beyond
the Koan


“Self-contraction covers all of the
opposites, includes them all. So this is the first test you
must come to in the process of listening. Then you become
more sensitized with the wide variety of operations of
yourself in relationship from moment to moment. The body is
a contraction from the point of view of consciousness. It is
a difference. It’s made of the same energy of which all
other forms are made. It is a universal force but it’s
displayed through differences, separate apparent
individuals, separate bodies.”

Beyond
the Koan


“You’re used to experiencing your
self-contraction as an experience rather than as your own
action. So you have some feeling about what I’m talking
about when I’m talking about the self-contraction, because
it’s that knot in the pit of your stomach or that feeling of
anxiety. You don’t realize it’s you pinching yourself, you
doing that feeling of anxiety, you contracting. You may, in
the course of the listening sadhana, get a little better at
it all, you know, understand it a little better, but
ultimately to understand most fundamentally and to be free
of all the wanderings and vacations and so forth and effects
of self-contraction, to notice, to feel, and be in the
position of the act itself, coincides with the feeling of
relatedness itself,they are coincidental,and the arising of
attention.”

The
Knot of Self-Contraction


“The ability to stand in the
position in which the self-contraction is generated is
served in the initial phase of the listening
process.”

Observe
Yourself in Toto


“Those who are simply listening
to the Teaching, who have not entered into this conversion
in the Company of the Spiritual Master, may as part of the
natural discipline of listening assume the various practical
conditions associated with the practice of this Way, but
even so they are not yet practicing the Way. They are
listening or giving their attention to the possibility of
practice. When there is full conversion, or “hearing” and
“seeing” to the point of real practice, then real
preparation for the ultimate form of the Way begins—and
not until then.”

Birthday
Message from Jesus and Me


“Those who Awaken in my Company
then know how to use me. They understand why I am here.
Others who are still listening, who have not passed through
this remarkable conversion or matter into energy, or egoity
into Spirit-living, appropriately maintain a relatively
distant or formal relationship to me, although they give me
their attention. And their granting of attention to me bears
the fruit of conversion when they thoroughly intuit and feel
that all that arises is Spirit or Energy.”

Birthday
Message from Jesus and Me


“Attending to My Argument is called
the listening process, but you are seeking instead. You are
not presently listening to My Argument, then, are you? You
are not listening to Me, not examining yourself according to
My Word and fashioning your practice on the basis of this
“consideration”. Instead, you are carrying on with your
oblivious search nonsense and pretending that that is the
practice.”

Religious
Realism – Perpetual “reality
consideration”


“The process of listening to Me,
that process in which you must locate the self-contraction
itself.”

The … Way Of The Heart Begins With
The Preparatory Sadhana Of Listening To Me. Therefore, The
Beginning Of The Way Of The Heart Is A Process in Which You
Simply Devote Your Full Feeling-attention To:

1. My Avatarically-Born Bodily
Divine Form, and

2. My Avatarically Self-Transmitted
Spiritual Divine Presence, and

3. My Avatarically Self-Revealed
State, and

4. To My Avatarically
Self-Manifested Divine Leelas, and

5. To My Avatarically Full-Given
Divine Word.

 

And This Original Process Develops
Progressively, From Its Rudimentary Beginnings, and Through
The Unfolding Developmental Stages Of Practice In The Way Of
The Heart-Until There Is The Most Perfect Demonstration Of
The Divine “Brightness”.

 

The Process Of Listening To Me
Involves:

1. General Study Of My Avatarically
Self-Revealed Divine Word and

2. Rudimentary “Consideration” Of
The Way Of The Heart In Its Totality.

 

Thus, The Process Of Listening To Me
Involves:

1. The Profound “Consideration” Of
My Teaching-Argument Relative To “Narcissus”, and Of

2. My Teaching-Argument Relative To
“Radical” Understanding. And

3. The Necessary Practicing Context
Of These “Considerations” Is The Basic Beginner’s Practice
Of Either:

a. Random self-Enquiry Or

b. Random Ruchira Avatara Naama
Japa.

 

This Beginner’s Process Of Listening
To Me Also Involves The Real “Consideration” Of

1. My Teaching-Argument Relative

2. To Divine Ignorance, or The Tacit
Sense Of The Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual,
Inherently egoless, and Self-Evidently Divine SelfCondition
Of Reality, Through

3. The Present Tacit Observation
That the conditional psychophysical self Does Not know What
any conditional thing, being, process, or event
Is.

With Parentheticals

 

The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given
Way Of The Heart (or Way Of Adidam) Begins With (or, Really,
Is Approached Through) The Preparatory Sadhana (or
Concentrated Practice) Of Listening To Me (Based, As A
Principal Design Of Practice, On Either The Devotional and
Feeling-Contemplative Exercise Of Insight Or The Devotional
and Feeling-Contemplative Exercise Of Faith). Therefore, The
Beginning Of The Way Of The Heart Is A Process in Which You
Simply (but In A Truly ego-Surrendering, ego-Forgetting, and
egoTranscending Manner) Devote Your Full Feeling-attention
To My (Now, and Forever Hereafter, Given) Avatarically-Born
Bodily (Human) Divine Form, and (In Due Course) My
Avatarically Self-Transmitted Spiritual (and Always
Blessing) Divine Presence, and (Thus and Thereby, and More
and More) 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, and To My Avatarically
Self-Manifested (and Ever-Living) Divine Leelas, and
(Always) To My Avatarically Full-Given (and Ever-Speaking)
Divine Word (or My Heart-Confessions, My Instructive
Teaching-Arguments, and All My Instructions For Specific
Practice). And This Original Process Develops Progressively,
From Its Rudimentary Beginnings, and Through The Unfolding
Developmental Stages Of Practice In The Way Of The
Heart-Until (At Last) There Is The Most Perfect
(All-Outshining) Demonstration Of The Divine “Brightness”
(In Divine Translation).

The Process Of Listening To Me
Involves General (but intensive) Study Of My Avatarically
Self-Revealed (and Always Me-Revealing) Divine Word and
(Also) Rudimentary (but Profound) “Consideration” Of The Way
Of The Heart In Its Totality. Thus, The Process Of Listening
To Me Involves The Profound “Consideration” (In Practice) Of
My Teaching-Argument Relative To “Narcissus” (or the
self-Contraction), and Of My Teaching-Argument (and Calling)
Relative To “Radical” Understanding (or Most Direct
FeelingTranscendence Of the self-Contraction). And The
Necessary Practicing Context Of These “Considerations” Is
The Basic Beginner’s Practice Of Either Random (and
Progressively More and More Meditative) self-Enquiry (In The
Form “Avoiding Relationship?”) Or Random (and Progressively
More and More Meditative) Ruchira Avatara Naama
Japa.

This Beginner’s Process Of Listening
To Me Also Involves The Real (Rudimentary) “Consideration”
(or The Tacit Reception-Rather Than The Strategic
Application) Of My Teaching-Argument Relative To Divine
Ignorance, or The Tacit Sense (or Direct, Rudimentary
Intuition) Of The Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual,
Inherently egoless, and Self-Evidently Divine SelfCondition
Of Reality, Through The Present (or moment to moment) Tacit
(Rather Than Strategically Applied) Observation That the
conditional psychophysical self (or ego-“I”) Does Not (and
Cannot) know What any conditional thing, being, process, or
event Is.
