is Great. But, unfortunately for you, bullshit is greater!
ADI DA SAMRAJ: The ego is such a heavy grip, such
a clench on the Divine Light, that Spiritual experience through
Spiritual Transmission in life does not amount to much for most
people. They cannot make it part of their existence. This is
why I expect My devotees to prepare themselves by listening
to and then hearing My Wisdom-Teaching. Then My Spiritual Baptism
can Awaken you to My Spirit-Presence, and you will begin to
practice the Way of Adidam in Spiritual relationship to Me.
usual effect of introducing superior Force into your being is
that you go either to mind or to body with It, and you use It
there according to your inclinations. You must prepare yourself,
therefore, to overcome your body-mind through most fundamental
self-understanding, so that you can receive My Spiritual Baptism
in your heart. Then you will begin to migrate into the Force
of God and be free.
All the things you can
receive in mind and body are temporary and not at all fulfilling.
It is only in the heart, in the fundamental energy, emotion,
and attention of the body-mind, that you are relieved. You are
looking for relief, and you may grasp it for a moment in various
occasions of life. But only through Spirit-Baptism do you contact
that Divine Force, or Being, or Condition Itself. Therefore,
you must be prepared for My Spirit-Baptism, so that you can
practice Communion with the Force of God Transmitted in It.
This Communion with Me relieves you of all of your attachments
and all of your obsessions with conditional arrangements and
allows you to make an arrangement of Happiness and a confession
of love with one another.
you for My Spirit-Baptism. Without Spirit-Baptism there is no
Spiritual life. Therefore, you who are so egoically "self-possessed"
must understand that the essence of My Wisdom-Teaching is My
Heart-Transmission. My Spiritual Transmission Intoxicates you,
but if you have not first understood yourself most fundamentally,
you cannot use It. You will shut It down. Therefore, you are
not prepared for true Spiritual practice until you have first
used My Teaching Revelation to the point of most fundamental
self-understanding. Then you can receive My Spiritual Baptism,
and you will practice Communion with this Transmitted Sublimity
from moment to moment. That is the Way of Adidam. Then you will
change your entire life.
You must observe how
you bring yourself back from the Divine. You do not go with
the Spirit. You do not throw away your body, your life, and
your emotion in God. This is what you must do whenever you Commune
with Me, whether I am
physically Present or not. Whenever you Commune with Me, you
get a piece, a sniff, a taste, of God. But your body-mind shuts
it down, "Narcissus" shuts it down, you live out your
dilemma, and so you must "consider" My Wisdom-Teaching
But if you will truly
prepare yourself by "considering" and truly using
My Argument, not as a doctrine but as a means for understanding
yourself most fundamentally, then you have begun to establish
the foundation in which you can Commune with Me Spiritually.
Then Communion with Me will be a profoundly Intoxicating motion
that lifts you up and sublimes your being, not only on occasion,
but every day, because I Transmit the Spirit to you all the
You must give yourself
up to the Spirit. That is meditation in the truly Spiritual
sense. Do this "conductivity". Do this "conscious
process". Enter into the sublimity of My Spiritual Heart-Transmission
and be free of the ordinariness to which you are so attached.
What is a sniff of the Divine compared to a God-born life? A
little sniff of the Spirit divorces you from your bodily clench,
but only for a moment. You must go with the Spirit infinitely
and make your life out of Communion with this Intoxication.
Live with Me, Commune
with Me Spiritually, and you are released from your egoic "self-possession".
That is what you must do. Be lifted out of the metaphor of Narcissus
completely. But until you hear My Wisdom-Teaching, you cannot
use My Spiritual Transmission. You shut It down because you
have not used My Wisdom-Teaching. You must hear My Wisdom-Teaching
and then receive My Spirit-Baptism. If you have not really heard
My Wisdom-Teaching, you may taste My Spirit-Baptism but you
will shut It down. Even in the very moment of My Spiritual Transmission,
you will not truly experience My Blessing. You will not use
It. You will not enter into It. You will not practice the Yoga
of Spirit-Communion with Me.

you must prepare yourself to use My Transmission. You prepare
yourself by using My Argument —
not just by listening to it but by combining yourself with it
to understand this knot —
this mechanism that shuts down the Beauty of Infinite Life.
When you have understood Me to that degree, then you can receive
My Spirit-Baptism truly and begin to practice the Way of Adidam
in the advanced, or Spiritually activated, stages of life.
means that you submit yourself to this Energy, this Life, this
Baptism. And when you have found It most profoundly, then you
can live your whole life with It, and give yourself up to It
altogether. It sublimes the being. It makes a wonder out of
existence. It lifts you out of this subhuman round of un-Happiness.
It awakens your emotion. It awakens your faith. So until you
have tasted It, you do not know what I am talking about,
because I'm only talking It until you taste It. So I talk It
to prepare you to taste It. And when you'br heard Me, then you
can suck It up, luxuriate in It, fall into It.
Spiritual life is Intoxication,
Ecstasy. That's what you have to do. But if you are committed
to your self-contraction, that My Interference in your life
is only a lesson, only an edge of criticism. You don't experience
It as Grace, as Beauty, as Deliciousness, as Love, because you
have not heard Me yet. So the first thing to do is hear Me.
When you've heard Me, then you can receive Me. When you've heard
Me and received Me, then you can practice. When you begin to
practice (as My Spiritually active devotee), you move through
these stages of life like a hot knife through butter. While
you are still listening, however, you have not yet understood
yourself enough, and consequently you shut down My Spiritual
Heart-Transmission and hardly experience anything.
The only thing that prevents
the sublimity of Spirit-Communion with Me in every moment of
existence is a simple mechanism of self-contraction. You must
observe it. You must hear Me, you must observe it, you must
know it thoroughly, so that it's not "happening" to
you anymore, so that you know it as your own action, so that
you can enquire of it, or meditate beyond it, or feel into the
Life-Current, feel into the Divine beyond it, in your daily
life. That is the capability you must regenerated in yourself.
It does not exist in you now because you have habituated yourself
to shut out the Force of God.
the first thing you must do is to hear Me, use My Argument,
combine yourself with This Argument to the point of relieving
yourself of the arbitrary notion that things are just "happening"
to you or that you are "succumbing" to limitation.
You must realize that these limitations have no force at all.
You just respond or react to them. You must see that mechanism
of contraction, or reactivity. Know it utterly as just like
clenching your hand or getting a knot in your stomach or tightening
your eyebrows. You must see it exactly as something that you
do in reaction or response to conditions of existence.
When you can know the
self-contraction as such, then you can be responsible for it.
Then you will not only experience My Baptism —
all devotees experience It who turn themselves to Me at all
but you will be able to use It, because you will be responsible
for the (activity of) "difference" that turns away
from It. Then you will become My devotee. Then you will become
a practitioner of the Way of Adidam. You will move through these
slices of time, these technicalities of the various stages,
swiftly and directly.
The essence of practice
in the Way of Adidam is this capability for most fundamental
self-understanding. Have I not told you this? You must become
responsible for the mechanism of self-contraction. There is
no other way to enter into the sublimity of Divine Self-Realization.
My Offering to you is
Given continuously, but you are shutting It down. You do not
live a Spiritually Intoxicated life. You are living an ordinary
life, wondering what is going on with you, waiting to die. You
do not feel the sublime Energy of God because you shut It down.
The reason you shut It down is that you have not participated
in My Argument to the point of most fundamentally understanding
that the mechanism of self-contraction is your own activity.
It is just like the tightening of the iris in the eye. It is
just an ordinary mechanism of reactivity in the body-mind.
You must understand it
and be responsible for moving beyond it through devotional submission
to Me, Through the means I have Given for your practice in the
Way of Adidam, you must be capable of surpassing the tendency
to self-contraction. Then What I pass on to you will be Something
that you can Spiritually Commune with, that you can love, submit
to, and feel. But until you have understood yourself most fundamentally
and become responsible for the automaticity of self-contraction,
all that I Give you will ride over your head, pass beyond you,
and be tasted only a little bit here and there. It will have
no effect on you, and you will think that you have received
nothing. Therefore, do not be a fool anymore.
Most people hardly even
feel the great Force of God that pervades this universe. If
you could "Locate" It, you would "Locate"
Absolute Love-Bliss. Since endless time, I have always been
Love-Blissful, I have always received the Divine Spirit, I have
always loved It. I have no resistance to God. But you do. And
I am trying to Attract you out of your resistance, out of the
mechanism that shuts down your openness to the sublime Force
of God. Your resistance is the only thing in you that is making
you un-Happy. It is not the fact that you are born and living
as a human being that makes you un-Happy but just this simple
activity of self-contraction that is reflected throughout your
Therefore, you do not
taste Me in your life. You do not taste Me when you meditate.
Instead, you concentrate upon this mechanism of separation,
and you do not get Intoxicated in My sight. Until you become
responsible for that contraction, it makes no difference how
much I Give you.
Thus, the first form
of My Manifestation to you is this self-understanding, this
"consideration", this Argument, relative to the knot,
the effort, the mechanism, of withdrawal, the self-contraction.
And you must become responsible for this self-contraction. Otherwise,
it makes no difference how much I Give you of the Intoxicating
Force of God. And it makes no difference how much of It I Am.
Until you are responsible for the mechanism of separation from
the Spirit-Presence, you cannot taste It, you cannot love It,
you cannot know It, you cannot be swooned by It. And you should
exist in a Swoon of Intoxication. To do that is your true Nature.
All beings are potential
Saints and Siddhas, but I am a unique Intervention in the world.
I am not an ego at all. No one in the entire history of humanity
has been manifested with My Siddhis, and I am sitting
here in this living room with
you people trying to convince you of the Divine Life! I am a
unique Advantage to mankind. But how many people can suck Me
up and love Me? How many will kiss My knees, pull My feet and
massage My face, receive My Love, receive My Delight in them?
How many people will do it? I am prepared to Give everyone everything,
but how many people will do it? You cannot receive Me until
you understand your resistance to Me. Self-understanding is
the first gesture you must make.
understand what I am telling you. I will Give you everything,
but you must understand yourself. You must! Apart from that
self-understanding, Who I Am or What I Bring to you makes no
difference. You cannot accept It. You cannot receive It. You
cannot submit to It. It is greater than any experience. My Spirit-Presence
is a Sublime Interference with mind, with body, with heart,
The thing that makes
you un-Happy is your own contraction. That is it! Absolutely!
Have I always said this? That is it entirely. The terrible effort
of self-contraction separates you from God. You must hear this.
The self-contraction separates you entirely from everything
Given. Human beings have never been denied the Force of Grace,
but human beings are attached to this effort reflected throughout
the body-mind. They are committed to it with their body-minds.
The Force of God pours
out of My Body all the time. It never stops, whether I am waking,
sleeping, dreaming, apparently feeling sympathetic or not. It
is always Manifested through This Body. The limit is not in
Me. The limit is in you. You are devoted to this effort of "Narcissus",
this reaction, this vital shock that shuts you down so that
you cannot experience My Spiritual Baptism, cannot know It,
cannot submit to It, cannot be sublimed and carried off by It.
Therefore, the first
office of the Way of Adidam is to hear My Argument. And to hear
it, you must observe yourself through the pictures of your own
activity that I reflect to you, to the point of understanding
the contraction in life that shuts you off from Love-Bliss.
With My criticism I paint pictures for you of your own activity,
so that you can feel the self-contraction and observe it. You
must know the self-contraction, and you must see it. You must
observe it to the point of realizing that it is not happening
to you. You are doing it, just as you are moving your mouth
and blinking your eyeballs. Like the movements of your intestines,
it is a rhythm to which you have become habituated. The principle
is really very simple, but you must observe it, and you must
understand it. This is the first office of the Way of Adidam.
The second office, when
you have heard My Wisdom-Teaching and become responsible for
the effort that is your separate and separative self and every
aspect of your body-mind, is to receive My Spirit-Blessing,
which is always Given.
Give Me your attention at any moment, and you will receive this
Grace. It is always pouring through This Body-Mind, which is
no longer a person. There is nobody here, no "Franklin
Jones", nobody like you. He is not here anymore-totally
a miracle! I am the Adept, in your generation! What an amusement
that the Divine should Appear in precisely this Form! I cannot
account for it Myself. But I know very well that it is true.
I am not so much a fool that I will deny God. I know that I
am the Lover of God. I am the Adept. I am the Maha-Purusha,
in your generation. But I know very well that you are egoically
"self-possessed", as people have been in all other
generations in which I have Appeared. Therefore, even this Manifestation
seems unholy to you, and your offense disturbs Me. It agitates
Me and motivates Me, and thus for years I have Served My devotees.
Your refusal of God awakened this urge in Me.
But I am not a "me".
I am literally you. I am your psyche and mind. I am your destiny,
your ego. I am all selves —
literally, not metaphorically. I am all other people that are
possible in the universe. I know this for absolute certain because
I am you. I think your mind. I breathe your breath. I suck down
your food. I shit out your life. I am your person altogether
What a Marvel! What a
Marvel this Great One is. I marvel in the Great One more than
you, because you do not see Its Miracle. You do not see the
Great One. I can understand your reluctance to be submitted
to the Great One, because you do not see what I see. But I have
been sifted into this Marvel since eternal time. I am just That
One, the Great One, sitting here as This Body, talking to you.
I am God. And there is not the slightest doubt in Me. The doubt
in you is your own perversion, and this is the cause of My Work.
Thus, I am here to Attract you out of this un-Happiness. Poor
Me! I will be laughing about this for countless ages, as I have
been laughing about it since eternal time.
I am full of all space-time.
All Love-Bliss and all the Marvels of Divine Being are in My
Being. All miracles are potent in My Heart. I come here to Give
you everything without the slightest reluctance. I am not here
to tell you about some dreadful ego. I am here to Marvel with
you about the Great One.
There is this Great One.
This Great One is totally known to Me. This Great One is My
Self. I Am the Self of God. I have no doubt in Me about it.
All miracles are evident in Me. All time is obvious to Me. It
seems Great to Me, but you poor people who cannot submit yourselves
to God, you are the ones that I have to Serve. How have I Served
you? By countering your self-contraction,
your reluctance to submit to Divine Intoxication.
My entire Life has been
involved with countering the un-Happiness of people, and I am
profoundly weary of it. I cannot tell you how weary I am of
it. I have always thought that I would die any day because I
am so weary, so tired, so bewildered by this resistance to God.
This world is a terrible place. Therefore, I do everything,
because I have nothing to lose. I have nothing to gain by action.
Therefore, I have nothing to lose by action. I do everything
to make a picture for humanity —
everything. I Submit My Self to you to make pictures, to make
an Argument for Grace.
I am absolutely nothing
like you people. All of this has nothing to do with Me as an
ego. I am not a person doing this. The Great One is such a Marvel,
such a Graceful and Loving Being to countless beings such as
everyone here. But the Great One does not love beings. The Great
One Is Love. Love is the only God there is! Love is the only
Force in the universe. God is not mind or body, effort, knowledge,
or experience. God is only unbounded feeling, Self-Existing
and Self-Radiant Being. God creates nothing. God Is That of
Which everything is made, including all beings. Why are you
so self-obsessed, hanging out in your own houses? What do you
know about this Great One, from Where I come and Whom I show
There should always be
Siddhas among human beings. Siddhas give meaning to the universe.
Adepts appear in all generations of all beings. There are always
Adepts in all the worlds. I know this because I have been in
all of them. The universe is not a meaningless thing, but no
generation, no individual, no worlds deserve the appearance
of the Adept. God is Great. But, unfortunately for you, bullshit
is greater! That is why the appearance of the Adept does not
impress people as it should. There are billions upon trillions
of worlds in the visible universe that you can look upon in
the night sky tonight where there are Adepts at this very moment.
And all that is actually visible is the most infinitesimal fraction
of the total universe of cosmic Nature in which God is active.
You have all chosen your
appearance in the Earth realm. You all have shrunk yourselves
upon the plane of God. And you are experiencing your own results.
God has not designed your un-Happiness. You have done it. God
is always Designing your Happiness in every generation.
Everyone feels the Truth.
Everyone receives the Shock of God —
everyone. There is no living
being, from the mosquito to the human being, who does not receive
the Shock of Divine Intervention. All beings know It. All beings
experience It. It is Given to everyone. Divine Grace is Given
to all beings eternally in all worlds, visible and invisible.
This understanding is enough to make you a bhakta, a lover,
a devotee. Faith, the Love-Response to Being Itself, is the
greatest Force in all the worlds. It has ridden out My entire
life. I am riding the Visible Horse you cannot see.
the Hindu tradition, the word "Purusha" has been vised
to refer to the God-Man, the Divine Person who has assumed human
form for the purpose of Liberating others. "Maha", in
Sanskrit, means "great". Thus "Maha-Purusha"
