"Merely calling on everybody to establish peace and rightness does not create the desired result. To call the chaotic world of egoic human individuals to establish peace and rightness is like trying to give verbal instruction to a cat. Generally speaking, cats do not take verbal instruction — nor do cats respond to advice, or callings, or guidance, or being told what to do at all. They simply do not do that. That is also how it is with the world of humankind. The world of fragmented individuals and impenetrable collectives is neither available nor amenable to be advised, or called upon, or instructed. However, the world as everybody-all-at-once is (inherently) in a position to collectively decide that things are going to be rightened. The condition of the demand for rightness must be established as reality by the collective of everybody-all-at-once. The Global Cooperative Forum of everybody-all-at-once must be immovable relative to the fundamental requirements for rightness in the world." --World Friend Adi Da, Everybody-All-At-Once
"It is not the search for peace (for all seeking is, necessarily, based on prior, or presumed, separation from what is being sought), but the active affirmation and enactment of peace (or the presumption of prior, or always already present, unity and non-conflict — as a condition to be always affirmed, depended upon, enacted, and preserved) that is the true and only means for the realization of peace." --World-Friend Adi Da, C + T = P"The Depth of Truth (or of Reality Itself) must be established as the basis of life — not merely as the goal of life. That Depth is the necessary basis of right culture, and not merely the goal of ego-culture. That Depth must become the everyday Truth — such that It transforms everyday experience for everyone." --World-Friend Adi Da, You the PeopleThere are two most fundamental Great Principles in Reality Itself that are relevant and most essential for humankind. The First Great Principle in Reality Itself is intrinsic egolessness (or no-"self"). The Second Great Principle in Reality Itself is subordinate only to the First Great Principle in Reality Itself. The Second Great Principle in Reality Itself is prior unity (or no-"difference").
--World-Friend Adi Da, Zero-Point Eduction "There is no difference between people. Human beings are a single species — and, fundamentally, they are all the same. The various colors do not make any difference. Races of human beings are variations of minor genetic changes that developed as human beings wandered the planet and lived under various conditions over thousands of years. Of course, in each place where human beings settled, they developed particular philosophical views and cultural characteristics. Nevertheless, the changes that occurred and the differences that developed are sheerly incidental and minor." --World-Friend Adi Da, Humankind Is Literally One Family
Thanks for the link and the friend invite! If you enjoy Adi Da's teachings, you'd also probably love the works of David R. Hawkins. You can find his stuff on Amazon, or at http://www.veritaspub.com
"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
