Excerpts from Eleutherios (The Only Truth That Sets The Heart Free)

[from Part 8, “Only Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Consciousness Itself Is”]

by The Divine World-Teacher,
Ruchira Avatar Adi Da Samraj


“Consider” this: The “I” of separate self is the body-mind. The body-mind is a product of Cosmic elemental forces. The body-mind is constantly dependent on those forces, and yet it is separated from them by its own independence or individuality. Consequently, the body-mind is constantly related to (and yet contracted from) the same elemental forces of which it is (itself) made, and of which all other forms or products of elemental forces are made. Indeed, the body-mind is always related to and yet separated from (or in tension with) all elemental (or Cosmic) forces and their forms or products. The self-contracted body-mind is (itself) the ego-“I” (or attention, or self-contraction itself, or the tacit feeling of relatedness, or the tacit feeling of “difference”).

Because this is so, the Perfectly mature practitioner of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Way of Adidam should constantly return to (or Always Already Abide At) the Place Where he or she Stands. That is to say, one should constantly return from the field in which one wanders—or, better still, there should be no wandering. (And attention is the wanderer, expressed as the body-mind, or will and desire, in relation to all kinds of Cosmic, or elemental, objects, relations, and states.)

The Perfectly mature practitioner of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Way of Adidam should constantly allow attention (and its objects, including every aspect of the body-mind) to subside (or be at rest) in the bodiless and mindless (or thoughtless, imageless, speechless, soundless, and heart-silent) feeling of relatedness.

If this feeling of relatedness is (itself) simply (or merely) and steadily inspected (or Witnessed), both the feeling (itself) and the inspection (or Witnessing) will dissolve spontaneously (like a mirage of water, when it is approached and inspected). In that instant of dissolution, the “pond of Narcissus” disappears (with its illusions of separate self), and What Remains Is the “Gaze” in the Heart, or the Feeling of Being (Itself), or the Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Form That Is Consciousness Itself.

[from “The Healing Power of Cooperative Human Community”]

Only true cooperative (and, necessarily, true religious—or Spiritual) community provides the human functional basis for the continuous testing and schooling of truly human qualities. When people exist outside the sacred domain of cooperative human community, all the forms of anti-social and ego-possessed aberration appear—and (once having appeared) they cannot truly be changed, unless the individual is restored to the intimate domain of sacred cooperative community.

Until the individual is restored to (or, otherwise, rightly and truly established in) sacred cooperative community, the responsibility for “curing” his or her anti-social, or subhuman, or (altogether) egoic aberrations seems to belong to abstract professions and institutions. However, neither the secular “machine” of the abstract State, nor any design of arbitrary social laws and brute police, nor any great “priesthood” of psychiatrists and social workers can do what can be done only by the humanizing influence of right intimate cultural inspirations and expectations within the sacred domain of cooperative human community.

Therefore, devote your inherent political freedom to true religious and cooperative human community. Put your free human energy into the free energizing of truly human things. Righten your life by transcending yourself, and by always subordinating yourself to That (Reality and Truth) Which Always Already Includes, and Pervades, and Fills, and Exceeds, and Transcends, and Outshines one, and all, and All.
