The Reality-Way p. 849
Talking and Listening and receiving instruction.
Dealing with forms of seeking and attachment.
But too much talk is indulgence.
‘Listening’ develops into ‘self’-understanding as intelligence.
People are served mostly in the communication (transmission) of Silence of the Heart.
This ‘method’ is primary; what arises gets no response, no reinforcement.
Insight and reflection is helpful but primarily Confrontation with Spiritual Transmission.
This is not a method or technique but a Relationship.
It is relatedness and a calling to move or transcend the egoic patterns.
Then, what arises is confronted with My Spiritually “Bright” Silence.
Then the individual becomes Awake.
This is the beginning.
And ultimately the middle and the end, in all places, things, worlds and beings.
MY SPIRITUALLY BRIGHT SILENCE
Aletheon, Part Ten
My sometimes “method” with My devotees was to talk about “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding and its Spiritually “Bright” Heart-Way, in order to Give them the opportunity to Listen to My Word of Argument and Instruction.
And I sometimes also addressed them in place, relative to the forms of seeking to which they attach themselves at any moment.
Sometimes, I even Enquired of them if this, or this, or this is the avoidance of relationship.
And, even now (and forever hereafter), when I Remain Merely Silent, My Mere “Bright” Divine Avataric Transcendental Spiritual Presence effectively Does all of this.
Thus, at the beginning, by the to-Me-devotionally-turning process of Listening to Me (even in My Silence, and, otherwise, by Listening to My Revelation-Leelas and My Teaching-Word), the Only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding (or the One and Only by-Me-Revealed and by-Me-Given “Radical” Reality-Way of the Heart, or the Only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam, or Adidam Ruchiradam) becomes Known to My devotees.
And, in due course, in all who truly Hear Me, “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding arises as the form of their own Real intelligence.
Talk, if it is overmuch and overdone, is simply the indulgence of the ego-dramatizing (or, otherwise, heart-wasting) activity of the mind.
If My devotees talk overmuch about the Reality-Way of “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding (rather than really practice the moment to moment devotional and, in due course, Transcendental Spiritual discipline that is the Way Itself), the “Way” becomes a mummery of egos, in all their separate and separative display.
Overmuch talk (whereby even what must be understood is made obscure by too much explanation) will merely scatter even My “Bright” Transcendental Spiritual Force of the Heart.
Too much talk indulges in forms and uses of mind that are not useful intelligence or real “self”-understanding.
Then talk is not relatedness, but only separateness, and a reproduction and reinforcement of a state that is not “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding.
The patterns that continually arise in human beings are not truly and finally served by the responses or answers they (in and of themselves) imply and demand.
Human beings are truly served only by the Communication of “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding, and by true examination of the egoic “self”, and by My Spiritually “Bright” (all-and-All-Blessing) Silence.
Some insight into the nature of seeking, as well as some comprehension of the nature of “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding, is necessary for the awakening of true Hearing of Me (which is most fundamental “self”-understanding).
Some countering (or reflection) of the seeker’s habits, acts, and presumptions, and some direct observations about his or her state, may be useful in order to engender the necessary doubt of his or her ordinary path.
But My Transcendental Spiritual Communication of the “Bright” Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, Source-Condition, and Self-State is essentially a process in Silence, whereby what arises gets no response, no reinforcement, and (thus and thereby) becomes obsolete.
Then the individual ceases to continue in the egoic (and, otherwise, merely, or exclusively, conditional) motion of what arises-and he or she will, in due course (by Means of My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Transcendental Spiritual Grace), find “himself” or “herself” In and As the (by-Me-Avatarically-Self-Revealed) Spiritually “Bright” Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, Source-Condition, and Self-State, Which Is the Source and Form of all of this conditional appearing.
This confrontation with Spiritually “Bright” Silence in the truly devotional and Transcendental Spiritual relationship to the Man of “Radical” Understanding-Who Is the Divinely Self-Realized One, and Who Divinely Avatarically Manifests the “Bright” Transcendental Spirit-Power of the Heart-is unlike the ordinary “experience” of frustration in life.
Things simply arise in every one, and life provides the present conditions whereby they are indulged, frustrated, or avoided.
But in the Spiritually “Bright” Company of the Man of “Radical” Understanding (Who Is the Spiritually Self-“Bright” Divine Heart Itself), what arises is confronted by Spiritually “Bright” Silence without and by the Spiritually “Bright” Heart within.
Therefore, My “Method” with those who have begun to understand by means of Listening to Me is simply to invite them to sit with Me, quietly, in simple (or searchless) devotional Communion with Me.
I do not offer them a mere “technique” (by which to turn upon themselves, and “work” on themselves).
Rather, I offer them a relationship-to Me.
That relationship (and necessary relatedness) inherently obliges My devotees to turn out from themselves-and, thus, to exceed the tendencies of their ego-patternings of “self”-contraction.
Then, what arises is confronted with My Spiritually “Bright” Silence.
This Company of Spiritually “Bright” Silence-this confrontation with My Spiritually “Bright” Silence, while remaining in conscious relationship to Me-enables the individual to be simply aware of what arises, without the possibility of indulging or avoiding it.
Thus, the individual is allowed to see what arises, rather than to become further egoically “self”-identified with the stream through the unconsciousness of ordinary conversation and action.
And the “space” between the individual and what arises is the place where My “Bright” Divine Avataric Transcendental Spiritual Power Works to Draw the individual from within.
Then the individual becomes Awake as Transcendental Spiritual quickening and “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding.
The Only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of “radical” (or “at-the-root”) “self”-understanding (or the One and Only by-Me-Revealed and by-Me-Given “Radical” Reality-Way of the Heart, or the Only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam) is, in practice, the devotional (and, in due course, Transcendental Spiritual) relationship to Me, and (therefore) to My Spiritually “Bright” Divine Avataric Self-Silence, and (Thus) to the “Bright” Divine Transcendental Spiritual Power Avatarically Transmitted by Me in Silence (and, Thereby, found within, and everywhere) – until, at last (by all My Divine Avataric Means), there is the Most Perfect Realization of My Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State, Which Is the True (or Real) Divine Heart (Itself), and the Truly Spiritually “Bright” Divine Spherical Self-Domain (Itself).
Then the individual finds only Spiritually “Bright” Silence in his or her inner forms.
But everywhere, in all the “worlds”, that one sees the Divine Avataric Self-Heart and Transcendental Spirit-Power of Me Stand Out-Aloud and “Bright”.
