Birth Doesn’t Guarantee Wisdom For Anyone

ADI DA SAMRAJ: Man is not going to realize his highest potential simply because he has been born. He must adapt his genetic possibilities through experience and true spiritual practice. And the culture we encounter downtown is not sufficient to stimulate such adaptation in the highest terms. Only the higher culture, the Wisdom-Culture, obliges us to adapt beyond obsessive use of money, food, and sex. 
The Wisdom-Culture obliges us to adapt to the self-transcending disposition of the heart and the higher mechanisms of the body-mind. It obliges us to adapt to the psychic fullness of the being. It obliges us to surrender, to enter into Unity with the Reality in which the world is arising and changing and passing.


No TV commentator or university scholar 
is going to ask you to do anything remotely like that. 
It is the task of Adepts to create the cultures of Wisdom. 
This is their specific function. It is a specific function in nature for certain individuals to realize the higher possibility of the evolution and Transcendence of Man and to create a culture of adaptation to that possibility. 
There are cultures of various levels of wisdom created by Adepts of various levels of realization. There are ordinary and extraordinary teachers with whom you may stay briefly, and then there are fully Awakened Masters with whom you stay for your whole life. The principle of the relationship to the Enlightened Spiritual Master is the principle of spiritual culture itself, the principle of the higher adaptation of Man.
