The Mirror Is Reality Itself

The Mirror Is Reality Itself

ADI DA SAMRAJ: The fundamental by-Me-Revealed and by-Me-Given Law of true Spiritual life (and even of true human life) is this: Never subordinate the Source. If that fundamental Law is discarded, there is not anything that is right. As soon as that one Law is cancelled, the ego-pattern starts taking over everything, in the manner of cellular reproduction. 


The ego manifests itself virtually infinitely, 
in a checkerboard pattern that replicates its own state and position. 


As soon as there is the ego-position (or “self”-contraction), there is the entire conditionally manifested universe. When there is no “self”-contraction, there is no conditionally manifested universe. 

You are “Narcissus”. You are looking at an image, and you think the image is actually “there”—as something outside you, as something that has nothing to do with you, except that you are seeing it as an “object”. 

As “Narcissus”, you are controlled by that “known-object”. You have already taken up the ego-position—and, from that position, you even regard Me as a “known-object”, “digitalizing” Me into the checkerboard that extends from your little block of presumption. 


In the ancient Greek myth, Narcissus is absorbed in an image—
but he does not even notice that it is an image in a mirror. 


The key to understanding “Narcissus” (or the ego-“I”) is not that the “self”-image is an image of oneself. Rather, the key to understanding “Narcissus” (or the ego-“I”) is that the “self”-image is an image reflected in and by a mirror. 

The entire “world” of apparently “objective” reality is a mirrored (or reflected) thing. What is its Source? What is its Source-Condition, or “Root”-Condition? 

The Mirror (or Consciousness Itself) Is the Source (or the Perfectly Prior and all-and-All-Reflecting Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State) of all-and-All. 

What Is the State of the Mirror? What Is the Mirror? 


The Mirror Is the Truth. 
The Mirror Is Reality Itself. 
The Mirror Is Me—
the Self-Existing and Self-Radiant Self-Nature, 
Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself. 


The Mirror Is the Truth. The reflected imagery of “self” and “world” is not the Truth. The State of the Mirror Itself Is the Truth. The “objects” seen in the Mirror are not the Truth. 

However, merely to hear this Statement of Mine is not sufficient. The ego may be satisfied with merely hearing My Words—but, in order for the Truth of What I am Saying to actually be Realized, you must change your act, and change your entire life. 

Therefore, My devotee must always live in right relationship to Me—subordinating ego-“I” to Me, living by My Divine Avataric Word and Person, entering into devotional Communion with Me, and (thus and thereby) entering into the Position That Is Perfectly Prior to “point of view”. 


I am not looking in a mirror. 
I Am the Mirror, or the Water Itself—all the while. 
As “Narcissus”, you do not accept that I Am the Mirror. 


As “Narcissus”, you presume that what you see in the Mirror is you—and that I am merely some kind of metaphor, representing something that is really about you. No—the Mirror does not represent anything. You are the representation (or re-presentation). You are the reflected “object”. 

I Am Always Already Present, Directly Before you, As the Mirror—but you, as “Narcissus”, merely persist in looking at the image of yourself, and either admiring the image or recoiling from it (depending on your attitude of the moment). In either case, you remain in the position of looking at a reflection. 

Real practice of the only-by-Me Revealed and Given “Radical” Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam is exactly the opposite of the “Narcissus”-position. 


Looking at the reflection is not the practice I have Revealed and Given. 
Looking at the reflection is egoity. 


Looking at the “object”, looking at separate “self”, analyzing your “case”, living the repetitions of your ego-patterning day to day to day to day, until death—all of that is mummery. That is the reflection-game. That is bondage. 

Everyone is involved in a primary “cult of pairs”—the “relationship” to “self”, the “relationship” between the ego-“I” and “its” reflection. That is the primary “relationship” for everyone: always staring at your own reflection, in the form of an illusory ego-“I” (or “knowing-self”).
