THE SEVENTH STAGE REALITY-WAY OF NO STAGES AT ALL

As "Narcissus", you automatically tend to take on the attitude and the presumptions of conventional and traditional "religious" practice. In that case, you are not actually practicing The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Reality-Way of Adidam (or Adidam Ruchiradam). In that case, you are merely "meditating" on your "self"-contracted egoic existence.

When you take on the attitude and the presumptions of conventional and traditional "religious", "Spiritual", or "Transcendental" practice, then you are doing nothing but "practicing" the naturally-arising stages of life-as an ego. You are "practicing" the search-in the "religious", or "Spiritual", or "Transcendental" manner. You are being the ego (or "Narcissus")-in the context of the third stage of life, or the fourth stage of life, or the fifth stage of life, or the sixth stage of life. That is all you are doing.

The ego-based (or first six, or merely developmental) stages of life are not The Reality-Way of Adidam. The Reality-Way (or Seventh Stage Way) of Adidam is able to begin only when the necessity for the search associated with the ego-based stages of life is intrinsically (or tacitly, and Priorly) transcended-and, thus, when the standpoint (or "point of view") that is "Narcissus" (or the "self"-contraction) is (tacitly, and Priorly) transcended. When "Narcissus" is no longer the "point of view" in the midst of existence, then The Reality-Way of Adidam is able to begin.

All of the Right-Life disciplines of The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam are necessary forms of your "Radical" (or Always "At-The-Root") devotional relationship to Me. The Right-Life disciplines of The Reality-Way of Adidam are the living enactment of My "Radical" Argument. The Right-Life disciplines of The Reality-Way of Adidam are your life-practice (or "living proof") of The Truth of My "Radical" Argument in the context of all the conditions and circumstances of your daily living. However, the Right-Life disciplines of The Reality-Way of Adidam are not the entirety-or even the most basic dimension-of The Reality-Way of Adidam.

As "Narcissus", you are persisting in the ordinary motivations of egoic existence. "You", as "Narcissus"-the ego, the body-mind-personality, the "robot of identity" that wants to be happier, more pleasurized, more amused, have greater experience, greater "knowledge", more "fun", more Freedom, more Bliss, and more "Satisfaction" (whatever "it" is)-are not yet a true practitioner of The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam.

Everything pursued on the basis of "self"-contraction is "Narcissus".

"Narcissus" is the basis of all of the first six stages of life. It is not that only the first three stages of life are the life of "Narcissus", and the fourth and the fifth and the sixth stages of life are "God"-oriented, and not of the ego-"I". Study The Knee of Listening. What-relative to the traditional paths of life and seeking-was The Fundamental Discovery, and The Fundamental Demonstration, of My Early Life? It was The Discovery and The Demonstration that all six of the first six stages of life are ego-bound and ego-binding. Ordinary life, "religious" life, "Spiritual" life, Yogic "method", "Kundalini", visions, asceticism, "Transcendental" dissociative introversion, and even all the seeking-strategies of "inward" concentration-everything of the first six stages of life is the dramatization (or search-evidence) of "self"-contraction.

What was the point of going through all of that and making This Great Discovery, and then telling It to others? The point was so that others would not have to go through all of that, so that others would have a basis for directly transcending what arises in the midst of life in every moment-whether the moment is tending toward "religious", or "Spiritual", or "Transcendental", or sexual, or disturbed, or whatever ordinary or extraordinary search it is. The point of making This Great Discovery and Communicating about It is so that others would have a basis for understanding and transcending the "self"-contraction in all of its forms-so that others could utterly bypass the ordinary life-search, the "religious" search, the "Spiritual" search, and the "world"-excluding "Transcendental" search.

The first six stages of life are nothing but egoity-"self"-distraction, "self"-meditation, stimulations (whether peripheral or internal) of the brain and the nervous system. None of that has anything whatsoever to do with Reality (Itself) and seventh stage Divine Self-Enlightenment. The first six stages of life may have something to do with what is conventionally (and egoically) conceived to be the purpose of human existence-but the first six stages of life have nothing whatsoever to do with Reality Itself, or Divine Self-Enlightenment, or Most Perfect Realization of That Which Is Always Already The Case.

Whatever "experiential" phenomena in the likeness of the possibilities of any of the first six stages of life may arise in My Divine Avataric Company, they are only to be directly observed-and intrinsically, and always immediately, transcended. Ultimately, it is all "garbage". Again and again and again, I must always Remind My devotees: What you have in your minds and in your lives-whether "acquired" in the course of ordinary daily life or "acquired" in the course of your right practice in My Divine Avataric Company-is all something to be merely observed (and never sought, or clung to, or even avoided) and always intrinsically and immediately (and not merely "sooner or later") transcended. No "object" or "experience" you can "acquire" is "it"-nor is The Reality-Way of Adidam any kind of resistance to all of that. You must simply observe, and intrinsically (and always immediately) transcend, whatever "experience" arises in any moment. If you do so, in the context of the right, true, and full life of devotional recognition-response (and whole bodily turning) to Me, you will always immediately transcend all the conditions and purposes that are otherwise characteristically associated with the first six stages of life.

As My devotee, you are not to "practice" the first six stages of life. As My devotee, you are simply to intrinsically transcend the first six stages of life-and, thus, always (from the beginning of your practice of The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam) to be Utterly Free of the first six (or ego-based, and merely seeking, and always only conditionally-enacted and condition-bound) stages of life.

To Realize Reality Itself Most Perfectly-and, Thus, Intrinsically, or Always Priorly and Immediately-you must be Utterly (or Inherently) Free of your own presumption of egoic existence. To Realize Reality Itself Most Perfectly, it is not (at all) sufficient to be "sort of" egoless (or socially un-"selfish") in relation to others, or merely non-reactive (or rather passively "durable" in the midst of life). To be Utterly and Absolutely Free, you must be without a trace of the purposes and the searches of ego-based existence, and without a trace of "self"-presumed separation from Transcendental, Inherently Spiritual, and Self-Evidently Divine Reality (Itself), and without a trace of the seeking-persona.

The presumption of egoically separate existence is a lie. In Reality Itself, egoic existence is not the case. The presumption of egoic existence is a convention made of uninspected "self"-contraction. If you transcend the presumption of separate "self" (or ego-"I") "Radically" (or "At The Root"), you are in the disposition that can be Acausally Enabled (by Means of My Divine Avataric Transcendental Spiritual Grace) to Self-Realize The Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State That Is Reality Itself, and That Is Transcendental Spiritual Love-Bliss Itself, and That Is egoless Indivisible Conscious Light Itself, and That Is Self-Evidently Divine.

The Divine is not to be found "elsewhere"-whether "inside", or "outside", or "up", or "down". The Divine is simply The Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State in The Context of Which the presumed separate "self", and the presumed separate "other", and all of the presumed "not-self" are arising.

Reality Itself Is Always Already The (One, Only, and Indivisible) Case. The Divine Is That Which Is Always Already The Case.

If you understand the "self"-contraction (and all seeking) "Radically" (or "At The Root") by Means of My Teaching-Argument, then you are in the disposition that can be Acausally Enabled (by Means of My Divine Avataric Transcendental Spiritual Grace) to be Self-Established In and As That Which Is Prior to the "self"-contraction, or That in The Context of Which the "self"-contraction is arising. Therefore, "Radical" (or "At-The-Root") "self"-understanding, Directly Enabled by Means of My Teaching-Argument, allows you to begin the Real (devotionally Me-recognizing and devotionally to-Me-responding) practice of The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Reality-Way of Adidam.

The practice of The Reality-Way of Adidam is, at last, Most Perfectly (and Acausally) Self-Established (by Means of My Divine Avataric Transcendental Spiritual Grace) in Perfect Freedom-Divinely Self-Recognizing all the forms of "self" and "not-self" that (apparently) arise.

In The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Reality-Way of Adidam, conditional existence is, at last, Perfectly Outshined-but not because of any strategic effort to dissociate from conditional existence. Perfect Outshining (or Divine Translation) is, simply, Perfect Self-Abiding Divine Self-Recognition of conditional existence In and As The Transcendental Spiritual Divine Self-State of Indivisible Conscious Light. In Divine Translation, all conditions are Outshined. They are simply no longer separately noticed. If you exist In and As The Transcendental Spiritual Divine Self-State-Divinely Self-Recognizing all-and-All As "It"-it is inevitable that, Most Ultimately, even all-and-All Is Outshined.

Rather than being the "self"-contraction and seeking various ego-goals, Be Transcendental Spiritual Divine Being Itself (As Is)-and (Thus and Thereby) Divinely Self-Recognize all of "self" and all of "not-self".

Such Is the "Radical" (or always "At-the-Root") "self"-understanding and the "Root"-disposition required for right and true (and Intrinsically ego-Transcending) practice of The only-by-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Reality-Way of Adidam.

Such Is The Seventh Stage Reality-Way of No Stages At All.
