1983: The Parental Deity and the One to Be Realized

Adi Da Samraj, 1983

The Way of Adidam is not a development of childish or conventional religion. When I speak of God—and I also use other terms than "God", but this is one of the forms of reference I use—I am not speaking of this Parental Deity. The Parental God of childish religion cannot be proven. That One does not exist. The struggle to prove the existence of such a One is a false struggle. It is an expression of the common disease, the problem consciousness of threatened egoity.

This does not mean that people should all become like atheistic psychiatrists and throw religion away—although on the basis of a very intelligent "consideration" much of what is called "religion" should be thrown away, because it is just a consolation for rather childish egos. But there is much more to true religion than what is contained in these childish propositions. It is That Which goes beyond these childish propositions that I Call you to "consider" in the form of My Wisdom-Teaching and also in the evidence of the Great Tradition, or the total global inheritance of human culture.
