Emphasis on immense!
As an IMMENSE collective are we ALL TOGETHER AWAKE AS PRIOR UNITY living in, acknowledging, serving, embracing, respecting the beings/IS Being of this IMMENSITY OF WHICH BELOVED ADI DA SPEAKS HERE?
He Accomplished HIS Work. YES! We AS ONE, as a NEW agreement collectively, have hardly begun. This was HIS culminating Lesson for all to Radically Understand.
Is the present time manner in which the "Adidam" authorities/subjugated followers who are exercising ownership and control of Adi Da's Treasures demonstrating the In-Love recognition, sacred respect, embrace/enabling the WIDE WHOLENESS of Adi Da's Accomplishment of which He Speaks here?
OR is the manner of the organization of a "chosen" few (hundred or so) engaging roles, structures and codes and access in relationship to Adi Da's Treasures fearfully and righteously; getting tighter and tighter?
Is the immense collective of which Adi Da Awakened complicit in allowing this self sabotage travesty to continue? The answer is obvious.
What Adi Da Speaks of here about the noticing of the failure to surrender and of sensitive insight, occurs not in/through the cultic/politics of ego active dramatization. This continuing failure/ collective dramatization is not of the nature of insight Adi Da Speaks of in this discourse. And, cannot be justified as if this drama of immature conflict is necessary "purification". If this distinction is not yet clear; one (synchronous with and as all) has yet to effectively/responsibly Understand and practice for and In the Real, Bright Heart and Divine Purpose.
He Called our act a conscious refusal of scapegoating. This is still occurring and leadership/enablers are cementing this mode of operation by a number of gross means and delusional errors of distinctions.
These acts will continue to fail, at what further cost?
RSO and ASA and devotees "approves" of this?
Om Ma Da
Bright Adi Da 1980
"No amount of suffering gets you to Realize Reality Itself—although suffering has a capability to liberate your attention to some degree, so that you can notice it, perhaps. People who speak positively about suffering are a little bit like Rudi—the ‘tear your guts out’ school—as if, because you can say that you can learn something through suffering, that means that you should, therefore, choose suffering.
The ascetical ‘practicing’ schools are, in one sense, founded on the choice of suffering as a practice—as if choosing suffering were somehow the necessary basis for the choice of Real-God-Realization. But Real-God-Realization Transcends suffering and enjoyment. You can enter into Divine Communion in the midst of a life that suffers—and in the midst of a life that enjoys.
Every kind of circumstance of life can provide the circumstance for Spiritual practice. But no particular circumstance of life, better than all the others, serves Enlightenment. Because it is not the circumstances of life that create Enlightenment. It is the intuition of the Transcendental Spiritual Divine Reality that serves Enlightenment. It is the understanding, the intelligence, the intuition of That Reality that creates the practice—not circumstance. Thus, the striving to maintain a continuous condition of what you would think to be a condition of enjoyment is also not a means to Enlightenment. It is clearly deluded. But so also would be the strategic choice of suffering.
Rather than choosing enjoyment or suffering as the ‘method’ of Real-God-Realization, you should choose Real God. And in that choice, your life achieves a kind of balance, a coherence, becomes a creative process in which there are limitations and pleasures and difficulties. It is a matter of sensitivity to the process of existence, and to the Divine Reality.” ~The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary
