This audio excerpt is the first segment of talk given by Adi Da on August 2, 1980. It is available on the CD, You Can't Get There From Here.

In this excerpt, Adi Da instructs His listeners that there is nothing we can do to attain Real-God-Realization. The presumed separate "self" pursues union with the Divine as it pursues everything else in conventional life — but the presumption of "I" (or of separate "self", or ego) is the activity that actually prevents awareness of our True Divine Condition. As He says, actual God-Realization is not at the end of a sequence of efforts performed by the ego, or presumed separate "self". Rather, God-Realization only occurs in the transcending of the "self".

The CD also includes the talks, "The Ultimate Mudra" (from October 29, 1980) and "The 'Brightness' Will Outshine You" (from July 9, 1988).

For more on the talk, "You Can't Get There From Here", read the Adidam Revelation Magazine article, You Can't Get There From Here.

On October 26, 1980, a shaman from Mexico visited The Mountain Of Attention, Adidam’s primary Sanctuary in Northern California. The following day, Avatar Adi Da considered with His devotees the shamanic view of the world, the inherently magical nature of the world, and our psychic relationship to it.

In this deeply instructive discourse, released now as a CD entitled The Bridge to God, Adi Da makes clear the necessity to discover and participate in that magical condition in order to go beyond the suppressive confines of the conventional materialistic point of view and discover the happiness inherent in existence.

This CD audio excerpt is track 3, "Discover the Real Nature of Existence".

On October 26, 1980, a shaman from Mexico visited The Mountain Of Attention, Adidam’s primary Sanctuary in Northern California. The following day, Avatar Adi Da considered with His devotees the shamanic view of the world, the inherently magical nature of the world, and our psychic relationship to it.

He describes the difference between the left-brained, scientific, control-oriented way of relating to the world, and the magical, psychic, or shamanistic point of view, in which the elements of the non-human world are related to in a participatory manner.

The famous punch line, "You can’t get there from here", is Avatar Adi Da’s starting point for this engaging discourse (with the same title). He uses the humorous paradox to perfectly crystallize the condition of all who are caught in the trap of seeking.

The "self" can't get to God, Adi Da clarifies, because the act that generates the sense of "self" is the act of recoil from the Divine. Life is rightly lived not by concentrating on "fixing" this recoil but as the feeling-embrace of the requirements and conditions of existence. And Avatar Adi Da offers the Way "out" of the trap of "self"-and-"other": Locate the supreme attractiveness of His Radiant Divine State, and "self" is dissolved in "Brightness".

From the CD, You Can't Get There From Here, which also includes the talks, "The Ultimate Mudra" and "The 'Brightness' Will Outshine You".
