“Death is utterly acceptable to consciousness and life. There has been endless time of numberless deaths, but neither consciousness nor life has ceased to arise. The felt quality and cycle to death has not modified the fragility of flowers, even the flowers within the human body.
Therefore, one’s understanding of consciousness and life must be turned to That Utter, Inclusive Truth, That Clarity and Wisdom, That Power and Untouchable Gracefulness, That One and Only Reality, this evidence suggests.” ~Adi Da Samraj Prologue to Easy Death
Sacred History/Divine Revelation-Word
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Says:
“…..but you are all the time fearing death and great pain and the most dreadful of consequences. If any of those things did happen, a beatitude would be inevitable. But there is a great lesson in pain. In pain, you can allow that very same condition of beatitude to coincide with your ordinary life. You can allow it. It can become the greatest principle of Yoga, the greatest principle of sadhana. You will allow, even embrace, great discipline, great devotion, great service, great meditation, great heat, great tapas, knowing that in such circumstances there is always beatitude, because no choice is available to you.
The great Realizers know this secret. I know it. If you can come to the point of allowing such complete and total surrender, it becomes the condition of existence, then life is beatitude, existence is beatitude.
There is a secret in such surrender that is most fundamental to sadhana in the Way of the Heart. Allow yourself to be cooked, to be burned alive, to avoid nothing. To be, in this moment, in such a place where surrender is not even your only choice, where it is only inevitable–this is the secret of most effective sadhana. It is the secret of renunciation. It is why renunciation is the secret of Realization, bereft of all means, all strategies, only There, without resort of the egoic kind, in Place with the One Who Is, only devotion–and not by choice. There is no choice. Giving yourself no choice whatsoever it the greatest principle of sadhana.
Be God-made, God-born, with God allowed. God Existing, and with no alternatives–this is the great Secret. The greatest Realizers, the greatest renunciates, all know this Secret. This is why they do what they do. But if you are only mediocre, always trying to avoid the great Imposition of Reality Itself, then you always have an option, some way to slip or slide to the right or left, always some way to desensitize yourself to the great Condition, not to mention all conditions. To become so humbled, so ground up, that there cannot be anything but Divine Enlightenment, this is the Secret. Mark My Words!
You are all maintaining options–that is what I am telling you. You always have an option. Even suggesting to yourself “I would choose always the option of surrender and devotion” still gives you room.
You should give yourself NO room–devotion absolute, imposed upon to the absolute degree so that no gesture even can or even need be made, but only God IS. That is the Secret. ~ The Beatitude of Perfect Surrender to Me
