The Truth About God:

Real God Is Not the "Cause" of Anything
A reading from The Aletheon,
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
It is part of the ego-game to think of "God" as the "First Cause", or the "Cause" of everything. However, Real God is not the "Cause" of anything. Real (Acausal) God Is That within Which everything is arising.
Real (Acausal) God Is That Power of egoless Mere Being Which Is Vast, Infinite, and Beyond comprehension — Tacitly, Self-Evidently So.
Real (Acausal) God Is Reality Itself — all-and-All-Including and all-and-All-Transcending.
When you exercise Reality-intelligence, the tacit certainty of Real God is directly and tacitly registered, completely obvious, and (altogether) Self-Evident. In that case, you simply regard all of this conditional arising in the disposition of your tacit certainty, which always "leans" you toward the Reality-Divine.
There is much more than that "leaning" to Realize, but tacit certainty of the Self-Evidence of Reality Itself establishes you in the constantly "Godward" disposition.
Therefore, you must never forget to exercise the moment to moment disposition in which the Reality-Divine Is Tacitly, Obviously So. You forget to exercise the tacit certainty of Intrinsic Reality-intelligence whenever you identify with the "lower" (or merely superficial) body-mind-"self".
However, when you keep Intrinsic Reality-intelligence constantly alive, and (thus and thereby) keep the heart alive moment to moment, there is always a tacit certainty of egoless Real God — Which Is the Perfect Power of Being, Reality Itself, the Self-Evidently Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of all-and-All.
The idea of the "Creator-God" suggests that "God" is responsible for everything that everybody does and everything that is happening. Real (Acausal) God Is the egoless Being-Force within Which all of this is arising.
Therefore, you cannot hold Real (Acausal) God accountable for what you are doing, or for how "things" are happening, or (indeed) for all your trouble here.
Real (Acausal) God Is the Immense Resource, or the Source-Potential, for everything. Therefore, everything arises in and As Real (Acausal) God — but no "thing" or "event" is "caused" by Real (Acausal) God.
You yourself are making the "events" of your life, and always according to your own conclusions — and you yourself are fastening yourself to the limitations you choose.
Real (Acausal) God is not responsible for any or all of that. Real (Acausal) God Is the Reality-Way Beyond all of that.
Real (Acausal) God Is That Force of Being, That Immense Reality-Intelligence, That Incomprehensible Intelligence and egoless Perfect Force That Is the "Being-Reason" Why anything can be at all.
Therefore, Real (Acausal) God Is the Intrinsically Self-Evident Reality-Resort of all-and-All — and the Ultimate Potential and Possibility of all-and-All.
Such Is the True Nature of Real (Acausal) God.

Essays from The Aletheon
The essays collected in The Self-Authenticating Truth illuminate Avatar Adi Da's Calling for the "radical" simplicity of the devotional Way of Adidam, and profoundly magnify the philosophical "consideration" that He brings to humankind.
