Is It Alpha vs. Omega?)
Is It Alpha vs. Omega?
ADI DA SAMRAJ: Since ancient times, humankind has, in various times and places, tended to embrace (or to be dominated by) one or the other of two characteristic approaches to the (apparently) two dimensions of the (Inherently) One and Indivisible Reality.
Just so, every individual tends to be involved in a constant struggle between two primary and opposite motives, that correspond to the two characteristic approaches to the (apparently) two dimensions of the One Reality.
These two approaches generally correspond to the Oriental (or the Eastern) and the Occidental (or the Western) strategies of culture (although the Oriental tendency can sometimes be found in the traditional West, as, for example, among the more mystically oriented of the ancient Greeks—and the Occidental tendency can sometimes be found in the traditional East, as, for example, among the more practically oriented of the ancient Chinese).
I Call these two efforts or tendencies
“the Alpha strategy” and “the Omega strategy”.
The Alpha strategy is based on the tendency to identify with the Most Prior (or Non-conditional and Transcendental) Reality, or Condition, exclusively (or in a manner that suppresses—or, otherwise, strategically excludes—conditional reality).
And the Omega strategy is based on the tendency to identify with conditional reality exclusively (or in a manner that suppresses—or, otherwise, strategically excludes—the Non-conditional, or Transcendental, Reality).
The Alpha strategy exhibits control relative to conditional reality (including social relations, social and bodily action, sex and functional bodily indulgence of all kinds, expressions of emotion, and activities of mind) and liberality relative to the Non-conditional (or Divine) Reality.
Thus, the Alpha preference is for the control (or strategic limiting, or minimizing) of the functional and relational activities of the conditional psycho-physical personality (even to the degree of suppression and exclusion)—and for the maximizing of attention, mystical devotion, and meditative surrender to the Transcendental Divine Reality, Being, or Person.
