tradition — whether religious, spiritual, philosophical, or scientific
— is associated with a particular view on the nature of reality.
view on the nature of reality includes the material universe,
"heaven", "hell", and a God Who is the Creator
of all that.
— The common view of scientists is materialistic: reality is comprised
of the material universe only, and the presumption is that everything
which other viewpoints suggest might not be material (consciousness,
spirit, etc.) will eventually be explainable in purely material
so, Adidam is associated with
a particular view on the nature of Reality, which we summarize
in this section. This view is not an intellectual synthesis of
previous traditions and viewpoints. Instead, it is the view of

provide just enough basics to allow us to talk about Reality,
then about Spiritual Realization in the context of that Reality,
and then about the nature of a practice for Spiritual Realization.
The language and the ideas may be unfamiliar to you (it is strikingly
different from the usual way we look at things), but there is
nothing abstract about its potential impact on your life. It simply
is the case that we can't fully talk about what our fullest potential
and destiny is, unless we more fully understand who "we" are,
and the nature of the Reality "in which" we exist. Keep in mind:
what is being laid out here in words is a description for how
to go beyond all human suffering, even the pain of mortality and
death. What is being laid out here is a course for the Realization
of your heart's most profound need: perfect unlimited Happiness.
we settle for self-fulfillment rather than Perfect Happiness—This mistaken
identification leads us to presume our greatest potential is to
make this body-mind feel better, and so that is how we tend to
pass our lives, instead of finding out how to be restored to our
original Divine Identity, and engaging the practice that brings
about the real and eternal freedom of that restoration.
Fully Awakened Spiritual Master is the Way out of this illusion—Not because
of any unfolding Divine Plan, but because of the inherent connection
between God and beings, combined with Graceful circumstances that
arise once in a rare while, the Divine appears in the human form
of a Spiritual Master, who steadily transmits the Revelation of
God to all human beings who find the Master, in a manner that
is completely tangible to them.
Spiritual practice for Fully Awakening out of this illusion—Through
a spiritual practice concentrated in contemplating the Divine
Transmission of the Spiritual Master, the apparently separate
being is led progressively but inexorably to the understanding
and transcendence of the self-contraction, and the Awakening to
the Divine Identity.
