SACRED HISTORY for August 27th
1987 Adi Da Samraj Gathers with devotees and “Considers” the right understanding of the process of death. This “Consideration” was later published as “The Perfect Freedom of All Lifekind In The Divine Victory of Deathlessness” in The Aletheon.
His Divine Presence Parama-Sapta-Na Adi Da Says:
“In and of itself, death is a murder of innocence. And to fear death is to be its victim, to be victimized in one’s innocence. This is what is not ‘acceptable’ about death—not only in one’s own case, but in all cases observed. Death is the murder of innocence. Death is a murder of children. Death is murder—murder by Nature. Death as murder is never ‘acceptable’. Naturally, deeply, and always, there should be revulsion toward death—in one’s observation of it in the case of anyone and everyone, and in one’s presumption of its necessity and its possibilities in one’s own case. Because of what death apparently murders everywhere and in every moment, one’s revulsion toward death must be deep, profound, and constant.
However, merely to be repelled by death is to fear it, or to react to it—and this inevitably binds one to death itself, and makes oneself (and even the entire ‘world’) seem to be merely a poor and hopeless and constant victim of death. Merely reacting to death makes one go toward one’s own death victimized in one’s heart and innocence. So, instead, one must necessarily and constantly enjoy a Reality-‘rooted’ understanding of death—and, to enjoy a Reality-‘rooted’ understanding of death, one must enjoy a Reality-‘rooted’ understanding of life, of born existence, of conditionally apparent existence altogether.
At the ‘Root’, Reality Itself Always Already Is—and, in Reality Itself (As It Is, At the ‘Root’), the Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself Is the right and true understanding of life, of death, and of conditionally apparent existence altogether. Conditional existence is full of limits—no doubt. Nevertheless, all of the limits in life and death are there to be transcended—because they are limits. Therefore, only if one becomes ‘rooted’ in the Reality-understanding of life and death does death itself become ‘acceptable’ (as an event in which one can positively participate).
The Reality-understanding of life and death at the ‘root’ is that life and death are (and must actively be) intrinsically, fundamentally, and always about the transcending of egoity.
Only on the ‘root’-basis of true Reality-understanding does life, death, and conditionally apparent existence (altogether) become ‘acceptable’—at heart, and at the ‘root’. In Reality Itself, death is comprehensible as a life-context for the event and process of the ‘root’-transcending of ego-‘I’ (and of even all ‘point-of-view’-based illusions of separateness and ‘difference’). On that basis, death is something of which one is intrinsically and deeply capable—because one can innately participate in it, and allow all other beings to participate in it, as an ego-transcending event, rather than as the mere murder of innocence.
Rather than being feared and suffered as the murder of all that is beloved, death is intrinsically transcended by right understanding of it—and, likewise, on that same basis, death is intrinsically ‘acceptable’ because of one’s right participation in it. On the basis of ‘root’-participation in Reality Itself, one can participate in one’s own death rightly, fully, and even positively—and one can both understand and ‘accept’ the death of all others on the same ‘root’-basis (in Reality Itself).
Therefore, by always Abiding at the ‘Root’ (or the egoless Source-Position) of Reality Itself, one can both transcend and ‘accept’ death, and even all of grief, and all of the universally inherited sorrow of lifekind, and all of the natural body’s potential reaction to the conditionally apparent events of everywhere suffering and death. Apart from true ‘root’-Reality-understanding, death is the murder of innocence—of innocents and innocence, both—and it cannot be ‘accepted’ gladly. Yet, on the basis of true ‘root’-Reality-understanding, one can—even Perfectly—‘accept’ (and Really transcend) the lifekind destiny of life and death.
Therefore, all-and-All can and must ‘accept’ and transcend death as the natural proceedings of the transcending of egoity—in which there Is (At the ‘Root’) Perfect Freedom and Divine Victory, in the Intrinsic Self-Realization of the Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself.
The Perfect Freedom of all lifekind in the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Divine Victory of deathlessness Is What I, by all My Divine Avataric Means, Gift and Enable one and all to Realize in the only-by-Me Revealed and Given ‘Radical’ (or Always ‘At-the-Root’) Reality-Way of Adidam (or Adidam Ruchiradam). Therefore, the ‘root’-Reality-understanding of death itself—and participation in death as the necessary in-life-process of the active transcending of egoity—is fundamental to My Divine Avataric Gift to all of lifekind, one and all.” ~Adi Da Samrajashram
