SACRED HISTORY for September 20th
1979 Adi Da Samraj Gathers with devotees and “Considers” the moral discipline required to go beyond the disposition that creates or fosters conflict. In the Discourse later published in Not-Two Is Peace as “To Take Moral Responsibility Is To Make Reactivity Harmless”.
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Says:
“There are very few situations in which confrontation is appropriate. A confrontation is a stand-off. The mood of confrontation is the continuation of an egoic strategy from one’s past. It is an immature view.”
Adi Da goes on to Say:
“Taking the frightening facts of the world into account, one must deal with them in an entirely different manner than by egoic reaction. One must undermine—rather than directly confront—negative forces.
The only security is in harmlessness. Harmlessness obliges one to open one’s face—and, indeed, to lose face! One must undo the force of one’s apparent ‘enemy’—with ‘small’ Eastern-style defense, rather than ‘big’ Western-style defense.
Western-style defense is adolescent. Western-style defense is founded on confrontation—just as the efforts of scientific materialism are founded on confrontation. The fundamental method of Western-style defense is to wound the opponent with a blunt instrument—whereas the Eastern-style defense thoroughly takes into account and understands the energy represented by an opponent. One must always thoroughly understand and transcend the egoic role of being an opponent, and (on that basis) always actively and responsively undermine the oppositional pattern-energy that is in the opponent—not so that (in the merely conventional sense) one ‘wins’ (and, thus and thereby, becomes egoically ‘self’-defined as the ‘winner’), and not so that (in effect) one achieves a position of absolute dominance over the ‘other’ (such that the apparent opponent is reduced to nothing), but always in such a manner that the energy that would otherwise be conflict itself (and separative activity itself, and ‘difference’ itself) is both transcended and dissipated.
One should only ‘dance’ with the other, by not becoming the egoically separated and separative mere opponent of the other. Once one enters into a ‘dance’ with the other, the mutual energy is transformed. That ‘dance’ is essentially a moral consideration of others and of apparent ‘difference’, in which the transcending of egoity is the fundamental mood of relationships.
Everyone must always take moral responsibility for his or her own reactivity in relationships, and see how this moral responsibility actively works itself out on every level—on the intimate level of one’s life, but also in the must-be-cooperative politics of global humankind.” ~The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary
1984 Adi Da Samraj Gives a Talk about Tapasviji Maharaj and the process of kaya kalpa, in which His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Instructs devotees to make full use of the “Tool” He has Provided of the seven stages of life, to understand and rightly appreciate the demonstration of traditional Realizers.
Adi Da Says:
“It serves the Spiritual process for everyone to see how great individuals fit into the totality of the seven stages of life, and to see what they were serving by their lifetime, what they were serving in others through their lifetime. Use the Tools I have Given to make it clear—then you will understand how to use their life, how to use their demonstration.” ~Adi Da Samrajashram
