The Responses to Religion and Spirituality

 Excerpted from

“God-Talk,Real-God-Realization,Most Perfect Divine Self-Awakening, and The Seven Possible Stages of Life”

The word “religion” has traditionally been understood as meaning “to bind again” (or “to rejoin”, or “to make, or, otherwise, affirm, the Great Union”). Therefore, common (or exoteric, or conventional) “religion” (most of which is confined to aspirations and activities in the context of the first three stages of life) largely consists of ritualized magic, political and moral imperatives, and myths that idealize the “good” man and the “good” woman. And, by such common (or exoteric, or conventional) “religion”, human beings may (it is hoped) be effectively oriented, by everyday cultural means, toward behaviors that positively address and serve the personal and collective material-survival potentiality of their body-based humanity.

Conventional (or traditional esoteric) Spirituality is, characteristically, oriented toward the profound (and now and anciently honored) sacred process of Realizing That Condition Which Is (Itself) Inherently and Only and Perfectly One. Therefore, strictly speaking, true (and, traditionally, rather esoteric) Spirituality truly begins no earlier than when “Conventional (or materialistic and body-based) Monism” is (at least beginning to be) replaced by “Conventional (or eternalistic and psyche-based) Dualism”.

The principal idea of exoteric “religion” is that all things and beings are in (and of) a Unity.

Therefore, the principal practice of exoteric “religion” (or “religion” in the general context of the first three stages of life) is the ritual (and otherwise magical, or even scientific) and also ethical (or social-moral) affirmation and (it is hoped) demonstration of the Universal (and even material) Unity.

The principal idea of traditional esoteric Spirituality is that all things and beings are only mind (or a psychic phenomenon, or, merely, a psychic illusion).

Therefore, the practice of traditional esoteric Spirituality is a matter of either the practice of intentional exploitation of mind (toward its “higher” development) or the practice of attempting to transcend the mind itself.

The lesser response to the principal idea of traditional esoteric Spirituality is the seeking-effort (characteristic of the fourth and the fifth stages of life) to develop the mind (and, thus, the conditional “self” and the conditional “world”, or “worlds”).

The greater (or Ultimate) response to the principal idea of traditional esoteric Spirituality is the seeking-effort (characteristic of the sixth stage of life) to transcend the mind (and, thus, the illusion of conditional “self” and conditional “world”, or “worlds”).

And, as I have now and fully Revealed and Demonstrated to all, the Way of Reality Itself can begin only when all aspects of the first six stages of life are (by Means of My Divine Avataric Transcendental Spiritual Grace) relinquished and transcended in the only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage Way of Reality-Realization of That “Ultimate Non-duality” Which Is Real (Acausal) God, or Acausal Truth Itself, or Acausal Reality Itself, and Which Is One and Perfection Itself.

So Be It.
