The Necessary Foundation of Right Life - part 1
You Must Convert Your Life Itself
Into ego-Transcending Practice
A reading from The Aletheon,
by Avatar Adi Da Samraj
In the total context of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam, it is not sufficient to apply discipline to only some areas of your life. In order to do the intrinsically ego-transcending practice I Give to My devotees, you must bring the discipline of the Reality-Way of Adidam to every area of your life. You must convert your life itself into ego-transcending practice.
If you are to effectively practice and grow in the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam, your discipline must cover every aspect of your life. The trend of attention is a natural force, like wind and earthquake and mobs. An extraordinary discipline is required to turn that tide. Mere "self"-effort is not sufficient. Only the devotional response to My Avatarically Self-Transmitted Divine Grace makes the turn.
The comprehensive and complete range of basic functional, practical, relational, and cultural disciplines (Given by Me) relate to general health, right diet, right emotional-sexual practice (whether relationally sexually active or celibate), true service, and formal cooperative sacred cultural association. I have Given detailed Instructions relative to all of these forms of "self"-discipline.
Thus, a basic design for "self"-discipline is Offered to all practitioners formally embracing the Reality-Way of Adidam. On this basis, each individual must discover a detailed personal design that is both appropriate and optimum in his or her own case.
In this always ongoing process, all My devotees must make the measure of every day, such that they (each and all) consistently fulfill all the by-Me-Given forms of functional, practical, relational, and cultural discipline.
I Teach and Require a purifying approach to the entire range of necessary forms of "self"-discipline in the only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam — because of how the human being really functions as a psycho-physical system.
