SACRED HISTORY for January 14th
1993 Adi Da Samraj Gathers with devotees and “Considers” the Reality-basis for the Reality-Way of Adidam.
His Divine Presence, Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Samraj, Says:
“Conventional ‘religion’, traditional ‘religion’, typically expects to be believed on the basis of making grand pronouncements. That is supposed to be sufficient to enforce belief, to justify belief. The Reality-Way of Adidam is not based on that. That is why I have not been spending all these years simply Telling you Who I Am and Telling you to believe it.
I am always in ‘Consideration’ with you, Addressing you directly, Revealing Myself to you directly, and looking for your responses, finding out what is your ‘experience’, and ‘Considering’ that with you.
Adidam Ruchiradam is based on your ‘experience’ of Me, not My announcements about Myself. Where that ‘experience’ is in you, and confessed by you, yes, I can Address it. And I Do and Say things about it, Say things about Myself, but on the basis of your responsiveness, of your real ‘experience’. But when you simply ask Me to tell you something for you to believe, what am I to say? I am not interested in doing that. I am not interested in being here merely as an authority, saying things that you should believe. I am not here inviting pious belief. I am here Dealing with you directly, in most realistic terms.
Ours is a ‘Reality-Consideration’ together. I Am Present As I Am, but you have to find Me out. And wherever there is a confession, ‘experience’, and so forth, that demonstrates that you have found Me out, then I Address you about That Which is Revealed to you, That Which you are in touch with. Then, what I Say about It is useful to you, meaningful to you, it is self-authenticating. Not merely because I Say it, but because you have the living ‘experience’ that corresponds to it.
So, the Reality-Way of Adidam is not based on pious belief or pronouncements to be believed. It is based on your transforming ‘experience’. And without that, it does not make any difference Who I Am or what I Say about Myself, because I am not here to enforce belief, piety, adherence–not at all. That ‘technique’, which is so much used by traditional ‘religion’, is, in My View, no longer of any use whatsoever. It is no longer possible as a basis for the ‘religious’ life, the real ‘religious’ life.” ~Adi Da Samrajashram
