SACRED HISTORY for October 6th
1987 Adi Da Samraj Gives the Talk “Reality Confounds the ego”, part of which is later published in The Aletheon in the essay “The Way of The Mirror Is Me”, in which He Instructs devotees that real maturity in the Reality-Way of Adidam requires understanding and going beyond the common motive toward “self”-fulfillment, allowing the true motive of the heart, which is to transcend all conditional designs and all illusions, to come to the front.
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Says:
“The great signs of intrinsically ego-transcending renunciation associated with Reality-Realization (or seventh stage Divine Self-Realization) appear only in the context of the absolute frustration of the life-patterns of the would-be ego-‘self’. That absolute frustration is the intrinsic and always fundamental (and ‘radical’, or ‘at-the-root’) ‘self’-understanding and certainty that the egoic ‘self’ will not—and cannot—be finally fulfilled.
The ‘self’-understanding and certainty that the ego-‘I’ cannot be fulfilled (or perfected, or immortalized, or finally satisfied) comes from the clear observation that the conditionally arising ‘world’ of cosmic nature is a ‘machine’ which is not ‘designed’ or purposed to fulfill anyone, but which, instead (and at most), tantalizes and seduces and traps everyone, and which, inevitably and mortally, frustrates everyone.
Only that fundamental ‘self’-understanding and certainty—that the egoic ‘self’ is not, and can never be, fulfilled—allows the great intrinsic (and intrinsically egoless) heart-motive (which is always intrinsically ego-transcending in action, and, thus, always already of a renunciate disposition) to come to the fore, such that the individual can truly embrace the devotional life of renunciation and Realization in My Divine Avataric Company.
Therefore, only that absolute frustration and ‘self’-understanding and certainty provides the right and true basis for the practice of the ‘Radical’ (or Always ‘At-the-Root’) Reality-Way of Adidam (or Adidam Ruchiradam), as the Divine Avataric Reality-Process of renunciation and Realization through Perfect Coincidence with My Divine Avataric Transcendental Spiritual Grace.” ~Adi Da Samrajashram
