My Beloved every one,
In this "
This was obvious to Freud — but (notwithstanding the accuracy
and usefulness of many of his observations) he did not want
to really deal with it.
I Know what to do about sex.
I really do not have a moralistic reaction to anything
about the emotional-sexual life of human beings.
In fact, within the domain of esoteric Spirituality, the principal tradition relative to sexuality is the esoteric transformation of sexual energy—or what is called "Tantric" sexual practice.
However, because of the double-mindedness of the common culture relative to all things sexual, it has traditionally been presumed that esoteric Spiritual Teachers had to do all of this in secret.
That disposition of double-mindedness leads to puritanical and judgmental righteousness—and it is that disposition that is wrong, not the Tantra.
Anyone's sexual activity appears to be "crazy" and unacceptable—and, in that sense, "wrong"—when viewed from the point of view of the normative public "face".
Particularly in Western (and "Westernized") cultures, the social personality is not supposed to have anything to do with sexuality or excrement.
There are all kinds of taboos relative to what is "below the belt", and those taboos lead to social and religious hypocrisy.
The double-minded personality has a great fear of losing face, and the same is (collectively) true of double-minded society.
The usual social demand is to not lose face—and, in a very fundamental sense, loss of face has to do with embarrassment about what is "below the belt".
From the conventional point of view, people in the religious world are not supposed to even relate to sexual issues in public—rather, they feel obliged to show the puritanical double-mind.
This is entirely a matter of "face".
"Face" is what the public personality-game is about, and it seems to be fundamental to everyone's public discourse in conventional society.
However, in private, behind closed doors, very human realities go on for the representatives of public religion—the same kinds of realities that are confronted in private by any human being.
Unresolved emotional-sexual issues—and all kinds of manifestations of egoity—lie behind the closed doors of "official" religion.
However, from the point of view of human authenticity and growth, the social expectation that people must be different in their public persona than in their real life is absurd nonsense.
I have always Worked to go directly beyond all of this.
There must be honesty and straightforwardness—not double-mindedness and hypocrisy.
What is fundamentally required is the elimination of the culture of double-mindedness and the establishment of an open, free atmosphere for "consideration".
Only in such an environment can matters related to the emotional-sexual character be truly inspected and resolved.
Such an environment is difficult to find—and such an environment of open, free "consideration" is exactly the situation I created and entered into with My devotees.
Sex is not the "great evil".
Sex is not evil at all.
Egoity is the root and source of all evil and all problems.
Sex is transformed and made right only through the process of transcending egoity.
Therefore, sex itself need not—and should not—be treated like an enemy.
It is emotional-sexual egoity that must be gone beyond.
In the 1960s, there was a well-known saying: "Make love, not war."
Understood in the most profound sense, this saying suggests an important principle—not that sex in and of itself can eliminate war, but that the transcending of emotional-sexual egoity has everything to do with bringing an end to human conflict altogether.
I have Revealed what is necessary to entirely transcend emotional-sexual bondage and emotional-sexual egoity altogether—in the context of the process ofto Me, and (then) Me, and (in due course) seeing Me, as My formal devotee practicing the total (or full and complete) practice of the Way of Adidam.
Thus, My Work with My devotees relative to emotional-sexual matters has not been a form of conventional Tantra (in which the energy of sexuality is "harnessed" for still egoic purposes in the context of the advancing stages of life).
Rather, in My Work with My devotees, I Revealed to them the inherently ego-transcending True Tantra of Adidam (or Ruchira Avatara Hridaya-Tantra Yoga).
I Say to you, and to all: True religion is ego-transcendence.
Thus, the Great Purpose of My years of Teaching-Work and Revelation-Work was to Reveal the Complete Way of ego-transcendence.
That Complete Way of ego-transcendence is (necessarily) the Complete Way of devotional Communion (and, ultimately, Most Perfect Identification) with Real God, or Truth Itself, or Reality Itself.
From the time of My infancy, it has been obvious to Me that human beings do not have access to a complete foundation (or exoteric) practice (or "outer temple")—a practice which would fully account for the realm of "money, food, and sex", and which would fully prepare people for esoteric Spiritual practice (or the "inner temple" of Spiritual life).
Therefore, I Freely Submitted to humankind—at first, in the form of those who surrounded Me in My early Life, and, later, in the form of My devotees—in order to create this "outer temple".
The "outer temple" of the Divine Way of Adidam is a Great Revelation and a great sadhana.
In the setting of the Great Tradition, the "consideration" and revelation of the foundation practice has never been brought to completion.
That "Consideration" and Revelation has been Completed only by Me.
In this "late-time" (or "dark" epoch), human beings are becoming more and more deeply disenchanted with conventional religion and conventional "answers".
I (Myself) was utterly dissatisfied with conventional religion and conventional "answers", and it was for that reason that I Entered into the Ordeal of My "Sadhana Years" and My years of Teaching-Work and Revelation-Work.
As a result of that Great Ordeal, I have Made religious life possible again, for all—on a Real basis.
Therefore, I Call every one to "consider" My Teaching-Word relative to Real religious life in My Company, and I Offer the Divine Way of Adidam to all who are moved to become My formally acknowledged devotees.
That Divine Way is, most fundamentally, devotional heart-recognition of Me and devotional heart-response to Me—the One and Very (and Self-Evidently Divine) Person of Reality and Truth, Appearing here before you As the Ruchira Avatar, Adi Da Samraj.
In this "late-time" (or "dark" epoch), the human world is ruled by the point of view of scientific materialism.
Scientific materialism has deprived humankind of all profundity of view—relative to the nature and significance of the conditional universe, and relative to the Reality of the Divine.
Scientific materialism is a global cultural "program", which has so effectively supported the ego's motive to achieve a perfectly independent state of "self-sufficiency" that, as a result, the human collective has brought itself to the point of global destruction and universal despair.
I have Shown every one the Way out of that.
I have Shown every one, again, "Where" the Divine Is.
Anyone who seriously studies My Teaching-Word will see the Virtue in It and the Truth of the Adidam Revelation.
I have been Unconventional in My Doings.
It was necessary for Me to Function Freely and Unconventionally in order to Do My Teaching-Work.
Therefore, I Did So. All I have Done has been with the Right Heart toward all.
Adidam is not a conventional religion, not a conventional way of life.
Adidam is about the transcending of the ego-"I" and the Freedom of Divine Self-Realization.
Adidam is not based on mythology or belief.
Adidam is a "reality" practice.
Adidam is a "reality consideration" in which the various modes of egoity are progressively transcended.
Adidam is a universally applicable Way of life.
Adidam is for those who will choose it, and whose hearts and intelligence fully respond to Me and My Offering.
Adidam is a Great Revelation, and It is to be freely and openly communicated to all.
In this "late-time" (or "dark" epoch), the rug has been pulled out from under the feet of traditional religion.
Anyone who seriously "considers" the modern Western intellectual and philosophical critique of conventional religion discovers that there simply is no basis in reality for conventional religious presumptions and ideas.
For all who have despaired at the emptiness of conventional religion, I have Revealed the Truth again.
And those who have not thus despaired (but who are content with conventional religion) should display the right moral disposition of cooperation and tolerance toward all who are not satisfied with the conventional answers.
I Call anyone who is attracted to Me to exercise his or her free intelligence and true discrimination and true heart-choice (founded in real self-understanding)—and, on that basis, to become profoundly moved to Me and heart-committed to the practice of Adidam.
Such free intelligence and true discrimination and real selfunderstanding are the real virtues of My true devotees.
And the exercise of those real virtues is what the Way of Adidam is about—not conventional piety, or moralistic self-righteousness, or puritanical idealism.
I was Born in the West, and I had to Make My Avataric Self-Submission in the midst of that circumstance.
I did not carry a tradition with Me.
I Woke in the midst of nothing.
Therefore, I am not a traditional figure—whether of the East or of the West.
I am not an example of the Great Tradition.
I have Completed and Transcended the Great Tradition.
Everything I Teach is something I have lived—everything I Teach about the Great Tradition, and everything I Teach about life altogether.
I did not get anything from books.
I got it from no one.
I Did it all, I "Ate" it all, and I Transcended it all.
That is how the Great Way of Adidam came into being.
My Avataric Divine Work of Self-Submission is not a development of any Hindu or Buddhist or other Oriental tradition (or combination of traditions)—not even a development of the "Crazy Wisdom" tradition, or of the "Atiashrami" tradition, or of the "" tradition.
People can be helped to understand something about Me by studying such traditions.
Indeed, in any authentic religious or Spiritual tradition there are elements to be studied which can help people to come to a fuller understanding of Me.
However, no such tradition (or combination of traditions) defines (or fully describes) Me or the Nature and Significance of My Work in this world.
I do not "belong to" the, on the left-hand side— just as I do not "belong to" the , on the right-hand side.
I do not belong to any "side" at all.
I Am the Whole here.
I Transcend all, in this Alpha-Omega world.
All conflict comes to an end in Me.
All limitations—whether of the East or of the West—are gone beyond in Me.
All "differences" between East and West are resolved in Me.
There is no precedent for What I have Done.
The Adidam Revelation is a Unique Transcending of all elements, East and West, in the entire Great Tradition of humankind.
I have no "tribe".
I have no traditional allegiances.
I have no ax to grind, of any traditional or conventional kind. Mine is a Free and Spontaneous Self-Revelation.
I am not here to be the center of a cult.
I Am here for the Sake of Free life.
I Am humankind.
Therefore, those who love Me love the Truth That is in humankind, and That Is Reality Itself.
I am not here to be a conventional religious authority.
I Am an egoless, Un-armored Presence here.
I Am the Self-Evidently Divine Person in the midst of humankind.
I am not an "other".
I Am the egoless Divine Self of all.
I Am the Conscious Light of Reality Itself—All-and-all-Surrounding, and All-and-all-Pervading, and Standing Free As the Heart of Being.
For those who would embrace a religious life based on heartbreaking Freedom—I Am here.
I Am Unique in the world.
Let every one come and bathe in My Light.
