Adi Da speaks of the condition after death in which mind determines one's circumstance, without the limitations of the body, brain and unconsciousness. He recommends that devotees direct their attention to sadhana so that the purification process gives one wisdom that frees one from karmic limitations.
This talk is published as "After Death, Mind Makes You", in the book, Easy Death.
Adi Da talks about fear, and the response to existence and the search that is the response to it.

Adi Da speaks about the fear of death being a characteristic of life and identification with the body-mind. Adi Da relates this to the fundamental condition of ignorance and the nature of reality. He draws His listeners into considering that the ego has a more fundamental context than even death, as the most primal action of the human condition.
Adi Da Samraj takes a devotee through a consideration about death. He points out that ultimately all fear is a form of the fear of death, a condition which is inherently associated with identification with the body-mind. He then speaks of the transcendence of the body-mind and the fear-free State in which He abides and Which He offers to all.

Adi Da describes the ego as a process or action, and our suffering as the result of that action ("pinching oneself"). Therefore, merely analyzing the "I" thought (for example) is not sufficient for self-transcendence. Transcendence of the act that is ego is a matter of counter-egoic behavior.
Adi Da compassionately explains the function of discipline in a variety of ways. Disciplines in the Way of Adidam are intended to be enacted in the context of recognition of and response to the Divine. God cannot be Realized without self being transcended. Disciplines are for the purpose of self-transcendence or the transcendence of the limit that is the self-contraction. "To realize That which transcends limit requires the discipline of limit."
