SACRED HISTORY for February 18th

1982   Adi Da Samraj Writes the Essay “The Four Options”, which is later published in The Yoga of Consideration and the Way That I Teach, and is now part of The Aletheon.

His Divine Presence, Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da, Writes:

“These are the options for those who are born (or otherwise manifested) in any apparent condition whatsoever:

1. You can ‘cause’ your situation to remain the same—by repeating all that you already are and clinging to all that you already have.  

2. You can ‘cause’ your situation to become worse—by turning attention and action in the direction of descent (toward what is lower in the scale of possibilities), or by moving toward a grosser, more solid, more elemental, or more contracted conditional state.  

3. You can ‘cause’ your situation to improve—by turning attention and action in the direction of ascent (toward what is higher in the scale of possibilities), or by moving toward a subtler, more fluid, more etheric, or more expanded conditional state.  

4. You can, in every moment, directly understand yourself—or the total situation (or apparency) that is the conditional ‘self’ and its relations—and, thus, transcend yourself and (ultimately) all possible conditional situations.

The first option is the characteristic choice of all relatively ‘self’-contented beings who are attached to the general configuration of present relations and who (therefore) fear all change.

The second option is the characteristic choice of all frustrated and depressed beings.

The third option is the characteristic choice of all positively and creatively active (though yet egoically-motivated) beings.

The fourth option is The Transcendental Spiritual Reality-Way of Eternal Freedom and Always-present-time Love-Bliss-Fullness—Free of the motives (and options) of the ego-‘I’ (or ‘self’-contraction).

The fourth option Is The Only Perfect Option. The Perfect Option Is The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Transcendental Spiritual Reality-Way of Adidam (or Adidam Ruchiradam).”  ~The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary
