No Lines Around Difference

Adi Da: "When I am speaking, I am speaking to literally everybody, whether they are formal devotees of Mine or not. My Revelation is a Self-Revelation, so it doesn't have any confinement to an other. I am not speaking to an other. I am speaking to everybody-all-at-once, not differentiated from Me at the heart, at the Place where I Am. There, there are no differences. And that is where everybody comes to Me. Where there are no differences, people come to Me and are able to be with Me and to Commune with Me. There must be no differences whatsoever."

Below are Prophetic Blessing Instructions. Notice that Siddha Da’s Calling is entirely relevant today, as you read this transcript of His Spoken Words from a Discourse Given on December 12, 1992

Siddha Adi Da:

"All over the world there is separation and death—the dramatization of egoity made collective, made political. Understand that this is what is happening around you all over the Earth. It is not only being manifested politically and socially, it is being manifested in the whole atmosphere of the Earth—in the hole in the ozone layer, in the possible rising of the tides, storms, natural destructiveness everywhere. That is the story all over the Earth. Watch the news as a discipline—I do everyday. That is the situation in which you really live. What is it about? The same thing you have been defending here tonight in your gentler manner—the right to be egos, to be egoically "self-possessed", self-indulgent, doing your thing as you will, avoiding the (Divine) Law, refusing cooperation, avoiding compassion, in the name of what?

You are going to die sometime. You think that you are not going to make a difference. What you do does make a difference. Only people such as you can make the difference, by rising up and refusing the impulse to non-cooperation, by manifesting the principles in your religion in relation to all other religions, by manifesting the principle of compassion, cooperation, love. Manifest that in your personal life everyday, or you are supporting the destructiveness that is going on all over the world. You are alive at a critical time in this Kali Yuga. Am I asking too much?


SRI DA AVABHASA: Assume great discipline here for the sake of Divine Self-Realization. Stop looking for the loopholes in My Argument or My (Divine) Law. Do not ever manifest intolerance in your speech or life. You must exhibit tolerance, compassion, love, freedom from egoic "self-possession" in your life, in your speech, in all your acts. This is not a moralistic matter. It is necessary even for survival. The planet itself is an organism that we must cooperate with or there is no survival possible here.

DEVOTEE: We have to be extremely sensitive.

SRI DA AVABHASA: Do so. As My devotees, you have particular obligations that are potentially about great sadhana. Nonetheless, you must manifest this disposition in the world altogether and with one another. All My devotees in all the communities around the world must voice, manifest, and demonstrate this point of view, this devotion, this acceptance of the (Divine) Law, this tolerance.

My principal Communication about the Great Tradition is called “The Basket of Tolerance”. There is not a word in it of separateness, of hatred, of non-allowance of people and their traditions. If people want to choose Me, fine. If they want to choose something different, fine. Everyone should really choose his or her tradition. Because those traditions, if you understand their right principle, are about cooperation, tolerance, about living with one another, not about drawing the lines around (differences).

DEVOTEE: Sri Gurudev, our community is Blessed. We are Blessed by the Divine.

SRI DA AVABHASA: That is right. You must manifest that sign. You must understand the time you are in. It is not as it was in the eighties, the seventies, the sixties, or the fifties. This is a very, very, dark and difficult time. And people are being murdered by the thousands every week.

Give Me ten thousand in the general community and maybe that can be the beginning of a difference. That is why I keep objecting to the impotence of your missionary work. Where is the Free Daist (presently named Adidam Ruchiradam) movement? You have the Great Revelation. Do not come to the world hat in hand. Do not come back to Me all hat and no cattle. Keep your hat on. Get a great gathering of cattle. Go out there with great strength to make this mission in My Company, because I am serious and for Real.

The horror on Earth must change, or you will not even get a chance at Divine Self-Realization—not you and not your future generations. You have been wasting My Lifetime, and you are going to waste the future beyond My Lifetime as well if you do not get straight. There are ground obligations, and they are about tolerance, and compassion, and cooperation. You do not take Me seriously about this. You are full of your intimate self-indulgence.

How much cooperative community is there among My devotees? Minuscule, hardly anything. You do not take Me seriously. The only thing you accommodate is a little bit of cultural activity. Where is the real cooperative community? Where are all the things that the cooperative community of My devotees should be manifesting? Where is it? I have been waiting more than two decades for you to wake up. It is time you understood this. I have dealt with all your aberrations. I have submitted to it all to Help you out. I am in no such mood anymore. The relinquishment of My Teaching Work occurred seven years ago. My Divine Emergence is ongoing, even though you do not notice it.

You all must get serious and stop your nonsense. You must stop sizing yourselves up in your intimate rooms and get down to what is required for humanity to stop destroying itself. You must stop destroying the possibility of God-Realization in each one of you. It is time to become serious people and stop throwing your life away just for a tinkle, a tune, a little amusement, a little orgasm.

The exoteric motive to defend your little colony is overwhelming the Earth. But the source and center of all religious traditions is the esoteric part, the philosophy that transcends limitation, that requires the transcendence of egoity to one degree or another, that requires cooperation and the elimination of hatred and sizing one another up, that demonstrates the willingness to engage in a collective of cooperation acknowledging differences, requiring all to embrace one another, to allow one another, to be compassionate with one another. That is the origin of democracy and it is the root of social wisdom of all traditions. Where is that demonstration? Where is it in you here? Have you no greater wisdom, no other awareness in My Company, than this stupid impulse to satisfy yourself bodily and avoid My Instruction, avoid living the ecstatic discipline in My Company? Wake up!

When do you become serious people—serious about the Way of the Heart and its ultimate and esoteric requirements, serious about its foundation, including its exoteric requirements, its social requirements? When do you ever get serious? When do you stop acting like a bunch of fools going to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, hearing a little bit of admonition, hearing about how other people got a little bit straight because they were so aberrated they would have killed themselves otherwise? When do you ever straighten out and take Me seriously? I am here! When do I ever see the sign in you of the Free Daist (Adidam Ruchiradam) movement, the great mission in My Company, the cooperative communities fully embraced, fully lived? When do you people ever get serious and fulfil your obligations in the world, your obligations with one another? You do not have to be an idealist to do this. You just have to be My devotee."

Remember, at heart with every breath, this paradoxical esoteric Truth of Siddha Da

I am speaking to everyone when I speak into the tape recorder. There is “nobody there”, except “somebody” with a tape recorder. Why is that? I am not just speaking to whoever is in the room with the tape recorder. I am speaking to everybody, literally. I meditate everybody. I am everybody. And I am speaking to everybody, and not to everybody as egos at all. I am simply Revealing Myself in “everyone’s face”. Adi Da 2008
