A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on death, life, delusion, and enlightenment

"Death makes your entire life bullshit. Don’t you see? That’s the problem. The body is going to die, every relation of the body is going to die. You can’t even depend on it continuing for another moment while you’re . . . associating with it. That’s the situation you’re in, but you use fabrications of mind and so forth, individually and collectively, that distract you from the fact of it, so that you won’t feel it profoundly. And so you build up this whole lifetime of endeavors, of attachments, of things you own, things you do, things you’re known for, things you know, things you know about — on and on and on. And it all passes. But in the meantime. . . you bullshit one another, effectively.

The Great Matter doesn’t confront you merely in death. It’s just that in death you are disarmed and you have no choice. While you are alive, you delude yourself! You fabricate a reality that’s not altogether true, in order to give yourself a sense of permanence, continuation, certainty — as if life is about being enthusiastic, about fulfillment of the next desire. In fact, you could easily drop dead in any moment. All kinds of people drop dead every day. And a lot of them haven’t lived a very long life beforehand. All kinds of terrible things are being done by human beings to one another and otherwise by the situation itself.

So you can participate in the round of desires and consolations as much as you are able for a lifetime, however long that lasts, and then be necessarily confronted by profundity at the point of death. Or you can go beyond even right now and exist in that profundity right now. . .

True religious life is a great profundity. But the religious life that people propose for themselves and propose to one another, generally speaking, is the life of consolation, of distraction, of arbitrary beliefs that suggest some kind of continuation (or even permanence) of the present pattern.

A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on egolessness, reality, truth, and education

There are two most fundamental Great Principles in Reality Itself that are relevant and most essential for humankind.

The First Great Principle in Reality Itself is intrinsic egolessness (or no-"self").

The Second Great Principle in Reality Itself is subordinate only to the First Great Principle in Reality Itself.

The Second Great Principle in Reality Itself is prior unity (or no-"difference").

A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on god and reality

There is only God.  REALITY is God and has never required your belief.  This reality no "one" survives.  In Ultimate Reality no "one" is saved either -- there is simply nothing to save you "from" :  you have not emerged from any "other" and there is no place else for "you" to disappear into.  Ever.

A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on realization and awakening

Reality Itself is a Revelation of What Is.  It is inherently egoless and of a Transcendental Spiritual Nature.  It can be given directly, but it cannot be achieved as a result of any effort whatsoever.  It can only be Directly Revealed, and thereupon Realized.  No answers to your questions, no techniques that could be Spoken or practiced by you are relevant to this Realization.  Realization is simply about Awakening to That Which Is Always Already the Case As It Is--not ideas about It, not to a practice of inverting on It somehow--just As It Is now.  This is counter to every egoic impulse--not what 'you' are about--but senior to them.  Your 'self' as currently identified is the only obstruction to this Realization, which is much more than mental recognition.  To dream without fear--that is the Attraction fully surrendered to.

A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on love, truth, reality, spiritual, and god

Love does not fail for you when you are rejected, betrayed or apparently not Loved.  Love fails for you when you reject, betray and do not love.  Therefore .. Love.

A Quote by Adi Da Samraj on true love, god, truth, and love

The Truth that is to be Realized may be summarized simply as the Realization that no matter what is arising, no matter how many others are present, there is only One Being. This is precisely different from the childish but common religious notion that even when you are alone there is always Someone Else present, Who will look out for you if you do the right thing. True freedom is not a matter of striking a deal with an All-Powerful Parental Deity; no such God exists. True freedom is in the Realization that there is only God and You are That One.
