On Transcending the First Six Stages of Life
From the point of view of the gross body (or gross conditional Existence), Everything (Including mind and Consciousness) Is Perceived, Conceived, and Presumed To Be An Irreducibly Material, Finite, Mortal Process.
From the point of view of the mind (or subtle conditional Existence), Everything (Including the gross body and all gross conditions) Is Perceived, Conceived, and Presumed To Be An EffectMade Of The Infinite Objective Substance (or The Infinite Cosmic Reservoir) Of Indestructible (and, Ultimately, Indivisible) Cosmic Light (or Cosmic Mind Itself), and Caused By (and Within) The Infinite Totality Of Cosmic Mind. And Even The Totality Of Cosmic Mind (Including the individual mind, and Consciousness Itself) Is, Thus, Presumed To Be Cosmic Light Itself (or Not Other Than Cosmic Mind Itself).
From The Point Of View Of Consciousness Itself, Everything conditional, objective, or Objectified (Whether gross Or subtle Or causal In Nature) Is Perceived, Conceived, and Presumed To Be Consciousness (or The Ultimate and Transcendental and Inherently Spiritual, or Love-Blissful, and Perfectly Subjective Reality) Itself, Such That conditional, objective, or Objectified Reality Is Inherently Realized To Be A Merely Apparent Modification (or An Illusory Play) Of, In, and Upon The Native Radiance Of Consciousness Itself.
These Three Primary Perceptions, Conceptions, or Presumptions Also Correspond (Variously) To The Stages Of Life.
The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On the point of view Of gross conditional Existence Corresponds To The conventional Perception, Conception, or Presumption Associated With The First Three Stages Of Life. (The cultural and General social Bias Toward scientismWhich Tends, and Even Seeks, To Bind or limit Mankind To gross conditional Nature and To the Even ancient tradition and philosophy of gross materialismExemplifies This lower, or mundane, or adolescent Orientation.)
The (Original, and Then The Basic) Fourth Stage Of Life Is A Transitional Stage (or Process)Originally Also Grounded In (or Naturally Associated With) the gross conditional point of view Of The First Three Stages Of Life, but Awakening (Progressively) Toward the (Potential) point of view, The Perception, The Conception, and The Presumption Of subtle conditional Existence, mind (or Total Cosmic Mind), and Cosmic Light. (The Ordeal Associated With The Transition To, and Through, The Original, and Then The Basic, Fourth Stage Of Life Is The Source Of popular Creationist, or Creator-God, Religions, As Well As the popular, or Less Developed, forms of sainthood.)
The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On the point of view Of subtle conditional Existence, mind, and Cosmic Light (In Itself), or Cosmic Mind (In Itself), Corresponds To The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Associated With The Fifth Stage Of Life, and The Advanced Fourth Stage Of Life. (And The Conceptions and Practices Associated With The Fifth Stage Of Life, and The Advanced Fourth Stage Of Life, Are The Primary Traditional Sources Of All That Is Commonly known As Higher Esoteric, or Secret and Higher and Mystical, Religion and Spirituality.)
The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On The Point Of View Of Consciousness Itself Corresponds To The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Associated With The Sixth and The Seventh Stages Of Life. (And The Sixth Stage Of Life Is The Basic, or Common, Source Of Transcendentalist Conceptions and Traditions Of Enlightenment, or LiberationWhereas The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life Is The Domain Of Most Ultimate Freedom.)
Any One Of The Three Primary Modes Of Perception, Conception, or Presumption I Have Just Described Could Be (and Is) Affirmed By individuals, groups, and Traditions In The human Sphere, but Which One Of The Three Modes Is Ultimately Correct (or Expressive Of Truth Itself)? It Is The Thirdor The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Based On The Point Of View Of Consciousness Itself. Why? Because, No Matter what arises as Your experience or knowledge (Whether gross Or subtle Or causal, and Whether of body Or of mind), You Are The Witness Of itand That Which Witnesses Is Consciousness Itself.
No Matter what arises, You Are Consciousness Itself. You Are Never Really (or In Truth) Separately Identical To (or Even Really, or In Truth, limited by) what Is objective (or Objectified) To Youbut You Tend To Feel (or Presume) Specific (or Separate) Identification With (or, Otherwise, limitation by) objective (or Objectified) conditions, Until You Are Able To Inspect (and To Be Inherently, and Inherently Perfectly, Identified With) Your Real (or Native, or Inherent, and Inherently Perfect) Situation, Which Is Always Already Free Consciousness Itself, The Inherently Free Subject (or Perfectly Subjective Being) In The (Apparent) Context Of conditional objects (or Of Apparently Objectified Light), and Who (It Must Be Realized) Is The Self-Existing, Self-Radiant Condition (or Being, or Person) That Is Always Already Prior To all conditional objects and Always Already Prior To Apparently Objectified Light (or Apparently Objectified Spirit-Energy) Itself. Therefore, the points of view of body and mind (and their Perceptions, Conceptions, or Presumptions) Are Secondary To (and Utterly Dependent Upon) The Point Of View Of Consciousness Itself (and The Perception, Conception, or Presumption Associated With Consciousness Itself). Indeed, The Perceptions, Conceptions, or Presumptions Based On the points of view of body and mind Could Not Even Be Made, Were body and mind Not Founded In (or Witnessed By) Consciousnessand, When the body-mind and the conditional worlds Are Finally (Divinely) Self-Recognized To Be Transparent (or Merely Apparent), and Un-Necessary, and Inherently Non-Binding Modifications Of The (By-Me-Avatarically-Self-Revealed) Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Condition (and Source-Condition)Then There Is Only Me, Only The You That Is (Non-Separately, Beyond the ego-I) Not Different From Me As I Am, Only One Self, Only Real God, Only Truth, Only Reality, Only egoless, Bright Consciousness, Only Divine Love-Bliss, Only The Perfectly Subjective Feeling Of Being (Itself).
A True (or Truly human) Culture Must Accommodate and Tolerate individuals In Each and All Of The Stages Of Life, but (In The Optimum Case) It Also Must Not Fail To Inform and Guide The Culture Of Each Of The Progressive Stages Of Life With The Wisdom-Orientation Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life (or The Wisdom-Orientation Toward Inherent, and Inherently Most Perfect, Realization Of That Which Is Inherently Perfect).
In The Total (or Full and Complete) Practice Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Way Of The Heart (or Way Of Adidam), Each and Every Form (and Possible Developmental Stage) Of Practice Is Indeed Informed and Guided By The Wisdom-Orientation Of The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life. Each and Every Form Of Practice and Possible Developmental Stage Of Practice In The Way Of The Heart, and Each and Every Stage Of Realization In The Way Of The Heart, Develops In The Context Of One or More Of The Seven Stages Of Lifebut The Orientation Is Always, From The Earliest Awakening Of The Hearts Great Urge (or Purpose), To Realize (By Means Of Devotionally Me-Recognizing and Devotionally To-Me-Responding Heart-Communion With Me) The (By-Me-Avatarically-Self-Revealed) Inherent (and Inherently Perfect) and Self-Radiant (or Inherently Spiritual) Self-Condition and Source-Condition That Is Transcendental (and Self-Existing) Divine (or Perfectly Subjective) Being.
