SACRED HISTORY for November 11th
1980 Adi Da Samraj Gathers with devotees and “Considers” the necessity for responsiveness to the Divine, to Reality Itself. In a passage now published in The Aletheon, “The Surrender-Response”,
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Says:
“The political, social, economic, and cultural ‘world’ of humankind is in a dreadful and worsening state—but why is it so? It is so because of what has traditionally been described as ‘sin’ (or being ‘off the mark’), or chronic dissociation from the Divine, or the absence of ‘true knowledge’—or, in other words, the failure to responsively and truly rightly participate in the Self-Nature, Self-Condition, Self-State, and Universal Source-Context That Is Reality Itself.
Where there is no right and true participatory—and, necessarily, ego-transcending—response to the Divine, and where (in fact) there is, instead, the egoic ‘self’-contraction, there are, obviously, going to be all kinds of problems, all kinds of limitations, all kinds of egoically-based ‘cause-and-effect’ motions, and (therefore) all kinds of suffering.
You can, in any moment, directly observe what is ‘causing’ all of this everywhere-evident suffering. The ‘causes’ are the things done by people (and other conditional entities and forces) in an egoic—or ‘self’-contracted—state. The ultimate, or most fundamental, ‘cause’ of human-based suffering is the absence of ego-transcending recognition-response to the Divine—or to Reality Itself, Which Is the Only Real Real God.
The ‘external causes’ of humanly-‘experienced’ suffering are the evidence of the natural processes of the conditionally arising universe itself—but humanly-‘engineered’ suffering (including the suffering of mental, emotional, and physical reactions to how the immediate natural ‘world’ and the total conditionally arising universe ‘work’) is ‘caused’ by human beings themselves.
If surrender to the Divine and (necessarily, surrender-based) direct participation in the Divine are absent—and if, rather, the egoic ‘self’-contraction is there in constant evidence—the ‘self’-contracted entity-force is constantly moving, ‘causing’ all kinds of ‘effects’, trapping the ego-‘I’ in itself, ‘causing’ the ego-‘I’ to be bewildered, and to see itself as being trapped in a terrible ‘Godless’ machine, in which everything and everyone is reacting (rather than responding by surrendering) and contracting (rather than participating in the egolessness of Reality Itself).”
Adi Da goes on to Say:
“My true devotee must constantly devotionally respond to Me, and grow (by surrender to Me) into Transcendental Spiritual Communion with Me—whether anybody else does so or not, and whether the natural ‘world’ and the human ‘world’ change or not. The practice of My true devotee must not depend on what either the human ‘world’ or the natural ‘world’ does.
Once anyone becomes My devotee (by Sighting Me and Listening to Me), My thus-to-Me-‘Bonded’ devotee simply and always must ‘get on with it, and go on with it’—even through death, and always regardless of what takes place in the ‘world’. Ordinarily, people feel that the conditions of natural and human existence justify reaction, rather than the surrender-response to the Divine—or that the conditions of natural and human existence are so overwhelming that they justify more negativity and egoic ‘self’-protection than is compatible with the surrender-response to the Divine and the development of a responsible life of ego-transcending Divine Communion.
As a result of the failure of every kind of necessary right understanding, the surrender-response of mediocre and chronically ‘self’-involved devotees is minimal, and always tends to remain at the beginning stages, and, at best, grows fitfully and only slowly.
What is the seventh stage of life? In the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life, the surrender-response to the Divine Is Perfect and Complete. What are the stages of life previous to the seventh stage of life? The stages of life previous to the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life are, simply, stages of less-than-complete surrender-response, in which particular dimensions of egoic existence are not yet in the surrender-responsive disposition, but are (instead) locked, contracted, and unopened.
There is only one right and true Way to practice devotion to Me—and that is to always surrender completely to Me, always respond completely to Me, depend absolutely on Me, and (Thus) Inhere completely in Me, without any ‘concerns’ whatsoever.
Through My devotee’s complete responsive surrender to Me—Divinely Avatarically Self-Revealed and Transcendentally Spiritually Self-Given As egoless, Indivisible, Acausal, Perfect, and Self-Evidently Divine Reality Itself—every aspect of the human form and context becomes a conduit for My Divine Avataric Activity and Influence.
Therefore, ego-transcending responsive surrender to Me is the always sufficient practice. All the rest of the only-by-Me Divinely Avatarically Self-Revealed and Self-Given Reality-Way of Adidam (or Adidam Ruchiradam) is Awakened and Demonstrated by My Divine Avataric Grace. As soon as I Acquire a devotionally-responsively to-Me-surrendered conduit, all of the rest of the Way Is Mine to Happen.” ~The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary
