“Egoity Gone Wild” Characterizes This Time
AVATAR ADI DA SAMRAJ: You are mortal, and entirely subject to the Mercy of the Divine. You own nothing, and you know nothing. No technique of meditation leads to the Divine Being, and there is nothing to be believed that is the Truth. Rather, you must be touched in your feeling by the unspeakable suffering of this world and return everything to the Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Divine Person.
So do not be stupid and cruel people.
Be a little more humorous and loving,
and acknowledge your friends compassionately.
All of them are fleshily presented,
All of your women friends, all of your men friends — everyone who lives, is dying, and is confronted with the most incredible circumstance. All are deserving of your love and compassion, and also of your demand for the discipline of love beyond egoic “self-possession”, so that they too can enjoy the intuition of this Happiness.
Everyone is dying.
All of these shapes get snuffed out with trembling stupidity and insanity.
When the body dies, the brain becomes active for a moment,
it begins to show you lighted shapes
and to dissolve you beyond the elements.
First you get fleshy, and then you get watery, then you get fiery, then you get airy, then you start screaming and nobody can hear you, and the body shakes all over the place, and then you are dead. I certainly wish you could acknowledge it while you are alive. If you can, you will love somebody, and if you cannot, you will not.
Do not pretend that you live in a Disney world of beauty. This life is many-sided, and you do not know what it is. And your Happiness depends on the total inspection of this life. Understand the situation you are in and become manly (male or female) on the basis of this observation, so that you may be lovers and friends.
Acknowledge this terrible circumstance and be Happy,
and stop placing stupid obligations on one another.
You exist in a place that is open-ended,
an edge to the Eternal,
and you are dying.
The only way you can comprehend this complication, is by sacrificing it and becoming a lover and a friend. Nothing else you may project in your lifetime can change that. You are still a fleshy, homely being that can be crushed by circumstance.
Weaponry, non-cooperation, delineating your block, your little neighborhood, your nation, in total opposition with everyone else — that is the circumstance on Earth today.
It is egoity gone wild.
You think you are being rather mild about it because all you propose
is to make a little circle with your intimate friends,
but such is the principle that is making the politics of the whole Earth.
I Call you to self-transcendence, cooperation, benign, compassionate awareness of other human beings and their stresses and their anger. This is what you must manifest. Mark My Words! You have always seen Me do so. You must also do so.
To live with one another freely you must love, tolerate, and be compassionate toward one another. Therefore, you cannot live with one another dispassionately, abstracted, as in the mood of science or egoity. You must participate in one another.
