SACRED HISTORY for December 16th
1996 Adi Da Samraj Gives the Talk “There Is Nothing About the Sleep State That Can Smile”, part of which was later published as the Essay “The Always Accessible Deep” in The Aletheon, in which He “Considers” the three states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping, and entering into Depth beyond them.
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Says:
“If you allow yourself to feel deeply, you can discover a feeling-depth that, intrinsically, has no sense of the body. As a matter of ‘experience’, there is already a depth in you, as in deep sleep, that has no association with the body. That is your deepest place. Thus, you always stand, most fundamentally, in a position without bodily awareness.
In any moment in which you are invested in that depth, you are (thereby) established in the condition that is beyond and prior to body-consciousness, and beyond and prior to even all psycho-physical noticing. Already, in that in-depth awareness (which is always already the case), there is no fear of death.
That in-depth awareness is not the ‘personality-depth’ of the waking-state. Rather, that in-depth awareness is the in-depth dimension of the ‘I’ that is (otherwise) apparently in the waking state and identified with the body. That in-depth awareness has nothing to do with the body, and nothing to do with the mind.
That Which Is to Be Realized Is Prior to separate ‘self’, Prior to the ‘self’-contraction, Prior to the ego-‘I’, Prior to body and mind, and Prior to the any present-time ‘point of view’.
Therefore, That Which Is to Be Realized is not in or of the waking state, not in or of the dreaming state, and not in or of the sleeping state. That Which Is to Be Realized is in and of The State That Is Always Already Prior to waking, dreaming, and sleeping. No human being is intrinsically obliged to identify with a mortal ‘self’-condition, or separate ego-‘I’.
Every human being is—even at birth, and constantly thereafter—always associated with the ‘equipment’ to be established in the depth, rather than merely being entangled in what is superficial and threatened.
To be established in the depth-position is what must always be done. The more superficial you are, the more you lose the depth. The more you distract yourself with that which is other than the depth, the more you become bound up in that which is other than the depth.
You become what you meditate on. The Great Profundity is not merely ‘inside’ you. The Great Profundity Is Perfectly Subjective to all of conditional existence. That Which Is to Be Realized Is Intrinsic and all-and-All-Pervading (and all-and-All-Transcending) Love-Bliss Itself.
The Great Profundity is not to be found ‘externally’, in the ‘world’ of ‘causes’ and ‘effects’—all the thises and thats which are perceived from the ‘point of view’ of a presumed-to-be-separate body-mind-‘self’.
Rather, The Great Profundity Is Realized in the depth, in The Source-Position, at the point of origin of ‘your’ apparent involvement with the entire ‘thing’ within which you are concerned.
If you are established in that most profound in-depth process, in whole bodily devotional and Transcendental Spiritual Communion with Me, then everything in the context of your ‘experiencing’—including death, which is inevitable for human beings—will become associated with A profound Self-Apprehension of The Intrinsically egoless and Indivisible and Acausal Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself. In due course, that in-depth position itself, because of its Intrinsic Nature, releases you of concerns that are generated only in the superficial domain of conditional existence.
Beyond ego-‘self’ (or ego-‘I’), there Is The Great and Prior Unity. Beyond The Great and Prior Unity Is The Divine ‘Bright’ Spherical Self-Domain—The Self-Existing and Self-Radiant and Perfectly Acausal Sphere and Self-Evidence of egoless Divine and Indivisible Conscious Light.
Most Perfect Divine Self-Realization is not Realization of ‘you’. Most Perfect Divine Self-Realization Is Realization of Me. Most Perfect Divine Self-Realization Is Beyond the ego-reference, Beyond the body-mind-reference, Beyond the ‘point-of-view’-reference, Beyond the waking, dreaming, or sleeping reference. The disposition of Really ego-transcending practice of right and true devotional recognition-response to My Divine Avataric Person Is Beyond all of that.” ~The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary
