Anniversary of Beloved Adi Da’s Passing

“This bodily (human) Form is temporary Means — and, after the Lifetime of This bodily (human) Form, the Reflections of It, the Murti-Forms (and so on), will, like the Leelas Generated by My Appearance in This Form, be forever Instructive and Useful as “Points” of concentration, Means Whereby to enter into Communion with Me.

“I will still be Merely Present then.”

Loony 911 Theories, When Will They Ever End?

loony 911 theoriesStudents of the historical record are ever mindful that for every significant catastrophe there typically will be at least one, and more often several bizarre conspiracy theories that spring up around it. “The CIA killed Bob Marley“, “The Pope had John Lennon whacked”, “Hitler was half space alien,” etc. The larger the event, the more ridiculous and numerous are the conspiracy rantings which circulate in relation to it.

So it’s not surprising at all that the events of September 11th, 2001 have precipitated their fair share of these ludicrous fairy tales. And as always, there is – sadly – a small but gullible percentage of the population eager to lap up these tall tales, regardless of facts or rational analysis.

wingnut  batshit loony 911 theoriesBut alas, the incessant 9/11 conspiracy theory bleating is slowly and thankfully grinding to a halt. Other than the fundamental incoherence of their loony theories, the downfall of the “9/11 denier” juggernaut was good old-fashioned skepticism at its best, the kind that conjures visions of James Randi challenging psychics and faith healers on their home turfs and winning.

Staking their fortunes almost solely on Internet-based content may have been the 9/11 deniers’ biggest mistake — the Internet is un-edited, without fact-checkers or minimum publishing standards of any kind — also became a perfect place for a rapid-response system of blogs and forums to fight back. Drawing on the freely available technical information from the NIST, FEMA, and academic journals which most colleges let their students access for free.

It is with the above observations in mind we provide this insightful video from the Corbett Report. Enjoy and Wake Up, America!  Stop indulging in loony wingnut batsh*t conspiracy theories.  Case closed!

Remembering Adi Da Samraj, a 5 Year Retrospective

Adi Da Samraj, a spiritual master, writer, and artist of international renown, passed away in his hermitage in Fiji, on November 27, 2008 of natural causes. He was 69 years old. He founded an entirely new way of spiritual practice, to which he gave the name “Adidam“.

Remembering Adi Da Samraj

Adi Da was a prolific writer and artist with over sixty published books and hundreds of thousands of works of art. The book that Adi Da designated as his most important work is The Aletheon, which he worked on intensively for the final two years of his earthly incarnation, bringing all of his most essential spiritual and philosophical communications into a final form. He completed his work on The Aletheon on the morning of his passing. 

In the early 1970s, Alan Watts, philosopher and author of numerous books on religion and philosophy, acknowledged Adi Da as “a rare being,” adding, “It is obvious, from all sorts of subtle details, that he knows what IT’s all about.”

In the 1980s, Wittgenstein scholar Henry Leroy Finch wrote: “If there is a man today who is God-illumined, that man is Avatar Adi Da Samraj. There exists nowhere in the world, among Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, or any other groups, anyone who has so much to teach. Avatar Adi Da is a force to be reckoned with, a Pole around which the world can get its bearings.” 

From his birth (on Long Island, New York, in 1939), Adi Da manifested unique signs of spiritual illumination. He described his early years as being focused in two fundamental activities. His first focus was to discover the process by which any human being can realize the Truth of “Reality Itself”. His second focus was to develop his own ability to communicate the Truth of “Reality Itself”–through verbal means and also through artistic means.

Happy Jayanti Adi Da!

Baby Adi Da BirthdayOn this auspicious day November 3, 1939 the Great Sage Adi DA Samraj was born, the conscious descent of Avataric Light, existing in a Condition of continual Radiance and Joy. And when, as an infant, He acquired the capability of language, He gave a name to this Condition, calling it simply “the ‘Bright’”. His naming of the “Bright” was the beginning of His Work of Teaching, Truth and Reality.

diwali-greetings-8This year beloved Adi DA’s ‘Jayanti’  (divine birthday) is especially auspicious  as it synchronizes with the start of the Hindu Diwali and New Year, and a unique solar eclipse as well.

Diwali, which starts the New Year for many, is the largest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. Known as the festival of LIGHT, it’s marked by four days of celebration that literally illuminates India and the world with its brilliance.

TED Talks and the ‘War on Consciousness’

Awareness is more fundamental than body, than emotion, than mind.

Most fundamental is not what we are aware of—but that we are always aware.

That constant reality of awareness is what Adi Da Samraj calls “Consciousness Itself“.

Ted Talks War on Consciousness

The TEDx Talks that began on the concept of spreading great ideas, has degenerated to a new priesthood of status quo dogma. “The TED organization doesn’t want you to hear the really important, breakthrough advancements in scientific thinking, and to enforce that intellectual ignorance, it has resorted to censoring and suppressing two of the most important scientists our world has ever produced,” opines Mike Adams at his NaturalNews blog.

Does TED Talks now have an anonymous board of “scientific advisors” who wield increasing control of the TED Talks from behind a veil of secrecy.

Has TED become just another vehicle of idea suppression?

Perhaps the most prominent victim of TED censorship and idea suppression to date is Graham Hancock, author of the now-censored TED Talk ironically titled, “The War on Consciousness.”

As one can see in this talk, the idea that humans “might” have this nebulous underpinning called consciousness was apparently so offensive to the TED Talks high priests that they suppressed and “removed it from circulation.”

TED Talks responds:

“Some speakers use the language of science to promote views that are simply incompatible with all reasonable understanding of the world.  Giving them a platform is counterproductive. [So] we’ve appointed a board of scientific advisers. They are (deliberately) anonymous, for obvious reasons.”

Keep in mind that, throughout history, “scientific advisors” once insisted the Earth was flat. “Scientific advisors” claimed inhaling mercury would cure the flu. “Scientific advisors” once thought there were only four vitamins necessary for complete human nutrition, etc.

Code 723: Da Shift Has Hit The Fan!

Adi Da Not Two Is Peace on 723The Buddha said, “Of all relationships, the best is trust.”  But recent NSA revelations have demonstrated that we are attempting to build a world of distrust in a mistaken search for security. Let us begin by dismantling that premise.  Where do we start?

On this day, July 23, 2006, World Friend Adi Da declared a decisive moment in human history for the sake of global cooperation, tolerance, and peace. In His book, Not-Two Is Peace, Adi Da Samraj, speaks to our planet’s violent human situation with a clarion call for global change in the form of a “Global Cooperative Forum”, a unique global institution founded in the inherent truth of prior unity.  

From His essay “723:  The Free Declaration of The Universal Moral, Social, and Political Laws of True and Necessary Civilization” (pp 251 in Not-Two Is Peace):

This Free Declaration is the Seed-Utterance of that new and necessary true and right (and truly globally, totally, and universally cooperative) order.

This moment in human-time—July 23, 2006—is the precise and decisive moment of the uniquely new human necessity for all of humankind.

One and all, consider this Free Declaration of your possibility on Earth.

One and all, Be of this Free Wisdom Blessed and made all right—together and at once.

Something new must emerge ….. A new mode of social contract …. an ego-less mode …… based on cooperation, tolerance and universal participation and accountability.

Peace is not only about encouraging peace between nations and governments but is also about you and me and nonviolence in our homes, communities and schools, hence – “Be the change you wish to see in the world!”

You are invited to participate in the initiation of the Global Cooperative Forum, the universal representative body for all of humanity via global conference on Tuesday July 23rd 2013 @ 6:30PM.

Google and World Brain Domination: Its the Books!

Google hits the books …

Veteran documentarian Ben Lewis travels the world speaking to futurists like Wired Magazine co-founder Kevin Kelly and scholars such as Harvard University cultural historian Robert Darnton for his mind-bending film Google and the World Brain, a fascinating look at the Google Books Project and its global implications.

From TechCrunch

“Google And The World Brain” is a new documentary about Google’s plan to scan all of the world’s books, which triggered an ongoing lawsuit being heard today. The hair-raising film sees Google import millions of copyrighted works, get sued, lose, but almost get a literature monopoly in the process. It’s scary, informative, and worth watching if you recognize its biased portrayal of Google as evil.

The film is getting wider release as Google continues to fight the Author’s Guild in court today. The organization is demanding $3 billion in damages from Google for scanning and reproducing copyrighted books. Google is asking the court to prevent the group from filing a class-action suit.

What is Consciousness Itself? …

… YOU are! (we are)

“You must become a person who does not need illusions to live. And if you are going to be a person who does not need illusions to live, you must become capable of eliminating, or releasing, the ‘self’ contraction and all accumulations. You must become a renunciate — not an ascetic — but a releaser, a true renunciate. Renunciation in the Reality-Way of Adidam is the capability for ‘self’ release. It is to cease to be an accumulator, or an owner, and (instead) to be a released being in the Real Condition.”   –  Adi Da Samraj

Happy New Year 2013!

The entire planet shouts in unison, “Happy New Year 2013!” We have navigated successfully into a brand new year. It is the year of realization and power-frequency-paradigm shifting, so it is incredibly essential that we purge our antiquated toxic beliefs, emotions and psych-spiritual and mental patterns and focus on what we truly wish to manifest in this new year beginning.  We are sparks of DA LIGHT but the prior years have dulled our luminosity. Many believe that this year is to be THE year that will change it all. Those of us who are in tune were acutely aware of the pattern-frequency shifts on December 20th, 21st, and 22nd. These ‘portal’ shifts were a catalyst of major changes in our DNA and consciousness. Our thoughts and emotions have been extraordinarily strong during those 3 days. It was glorious  to know that we now live in an awakened era of consciousness. Now is the time more than ever to dive head first into DA LIGHT!

Wishing you a very happy and awakened year 2013

OM SRI ADI DA!

Happy Consciousness New Year

Welcome to the Matrix …

… and the law enforcement of “pre-crime” as fictionalized in the flick Minority Report.  Are we all under surveillance in the “matrix?”  

Image1The US army is developing methods to covertly identify and track people who plan to do ‘something bad’. Hidden sensors will be used to detect AI’s version of ‘adversarial intent’ by reading and cataloguing our emotions and health.

A report called ‘Remote Detection of Covert Tactical Adversarial Intent of Individuals in Asymmetric Operations’ (PDF) was authored by the US Army Research Laboratory in 2010; it details the requirements of researchers wishing to gain funding from the US Federal Government by developing techniques to hone in on individuals in crowds, to detect antagonistic attitudes among the “clutter” of innocents.

The prime directive to protect national security, counter ‘insurgency’, and generally ‘keep the peace’, however, means the technology that is developed will spread beyond airports and be used for wider civilian applications, such as “crowd control and in antidrug, anticrime, and immigration enforcement.” In fact, applications in the civilian economy are said to be plentiful, and also include “border security, and ensuring the security of government and private personnel and property”.

Plant Intelligence Increasingly Noted by Scientists

Actually, all matter has been noted to possess sentient intelligence – first noted scientifically by the great early 20th century scientist Chandra Bose, whose work the 1973 best-seller Secret Life of Plants was based upon.

After he proved that plants had a richer inner intelligence and even emotional life Dr. Bose went on to use much of the same instrumentation and testing protocol to demonstrate similar characteristics of seemingly innate matter, like slabs of concrete and beams of steel.

……

In his TED talk above, Stefano Mancuso, professor of horticulture at the International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology in Florence, Italy, discusses the basis of a prove-able fact: plants are intelligent entities. To christen his research lab in 2004,  the only lab in the world dedicated solely to showing that plants are, in fact, intelligent entities, Mancuso decided to use the controversial term ‘plant neurobiology’ to reinforce the idea that plants have biochemistry, cell biology and electrophysiology similar to the human nervous system.

Review of Tasting The Moon

Going well beyond the bestselling Eat Pray Love, Tasting The Moon tells the story of a “no holds barred” pathway through life—from the author’s eccentric childhood, through the tumultuous 60s, to the ashram of Adi Da Samraj, her spiritual Guru whom she discovered in the 70s.

tasting the moonWith disarming and raw candor, Meg Fortune McDonnell recounts the ego-deaths and transformations she went through as she followed her unorthodox teacher around the globe—and to uncharted spiritual dimensions not located on any map.*

 — *From the publisher

To connect her riveting confessions to current events, McDonnell draws on diverse references from “Vanity Fair” to “The Buddhist Bible” and Alanis Morisette to Ramana Maharshi, deftly tracing the recent epoch of our collective spiritual quest along with her personal adventures.

The three decades McDonnell spent under the tutelage of her enigmatic master were filled with sometimes hair-raising, sometimes hilarious, ultimately uplifting explorations of everything, including: what vampires tell us about the taboo against the spirit and what it really means to be “sexually liberated,” healing debilitating Oedipal wounds and thawing the icy character that freezes out love, uncovering new gender roles and empowering female strengths, dancing as tribal prayer for world peace, recurring and mysterious synchronicities, what true beauty is—in art, friends, & avatars, and blessing meant for everyone.

A fascinating life, masterfully told.

World-Friend Adi Da Says: Not-Two IS Peace!

In Not-Two Is Peace, Adi Da has given humanity a remarkable gift: the explanation for our global human dilemma and its necessary remedy — through embrace of principles He elaborates in this book. These principles can be summarized as follows:

Not-Two Is Peace– Act on the basis of “everybody-all-at-once” — rather than on the basis of egoity and “tribalism”

– Engage a lifetime of ego-transcending schooling in what He calls “zero-point education”

– Establish a “Global Cooperative Forum”: a representative collective of “everybody-all-at-once”, acting in the best interests of humanity as a whole and the earth-world in its totality

Adi Da’s message in Not-Two Is Peace is not merely that human beings should resolve the world’s urgent crises, but that we must do so in a radically new way.

He speaks to many of the same global issues discussed by numerous contemporary authors, but His writing addresses these issues at the “root” level, thereby elucidating the fundamentally egoic forces behind humanity’s dangerous trajectory.

Not-Two Is Peace by World Friend Adi Da

In so doing, Not-Two Is Peace proposes a profoundly new paradigm for world change and a cohesive program of solutions that reflect Adi Da’s comprehensive and penetrating understanding of the workings of the earth-world.

Exposing the false philosophy of modern science?

This new mini-documentary by Mike Adams takes aim at what he calls “the false philosophy underpinning most of modern science.”  Adams attempts to explain why (he claims) “science is harming life on our planet”: (i.e., GMOs, vaccines, psychiatric drugs, nuclear weapons, etc.) — they’ve all been pursued and promoted under the brand of “science.” According to Adams, most modern scientists do not believe human beings are conscious beings, per’se.  “At its core, science perceives humans as  just ‘biological robots’ which “provides the philosophical pretext for genocide,” claims Adams

What is interesting is that Adams, a respected activist in the field of natual health, is not coming from an eschatological religious-type of mindset.  Rather, he builds upon “new-science” and core philosophy of consciousness theory.

From Mike Adams’ NaturalNews blog

(NaturalNews) I have a timely and important message to share with you today. As explained in this important mini-documentary we’ve decided to release at this moment (link below), it is time that we tore away the false facade of “modern science” and exposed the core philosophical underpinnings that have enabled so much pain, suffering and destruction to be carried out in the name of “science.”

What’s Next, Watson?

Watson AI JeopardyDid anyone catch the Watson Jeopardy man vs machine gameshow showdown last week?  The whole affair was a brilliantly “engineered” commercial for IBM. The company has already received contracts for its next-gen AI.

Fahmida Y. Rashid at eWEEK writes:  Watson handily defeated its human opponents during the two-game tournament that aired between Feb. 14 and Feb. 16 the real story is not about a computer smart enough to compete, and win, on a challenging game show, but rather, the advent of computers capable of understanding questions and coming up with relevant answers.  This is “just the beginning of a journey,” Katharine Frase, vice president of industry solutions and emerging business at IBM Research, told eWEEK.

IBM didn’t waste any time, announcing on Feb. 17 a collaboration with Columbia University, University of Maryland, and  Nuance  Communications to develop a physicans’ assistant service that can collect a patient’s health information and analyze it for medical diagnosis. Other health care applications include being able to automatically identify and flag anomalies on MRIs and other images that a radiologist may miss. The speech-recognition technology from Nuance will also help Watson hear people, a skill it could have used during the first game.

Edgar Mitchell’s Extraordinary Journey

During my time in Brazil I had the opportunity to get to know Dr. Edgar Mitchell. We co-paneled the Nucleus Integration of Science (NIC) Conference with consciousness-revolution authors, Marilyn Ferguson, Elisabet Sahtouris and Peter Russell, and we traveled to meet industry leaders and the local press.  I was always impressed by Dr. Mitchell as unlike any “ex-military’ officer I have met, Ph.D or not. LOL!

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

Forty years ago, today, Navy Captain Dr. Edgar Mitchell returned from a journey into outer space that resulted in becoming the sixth man to walk on the moon. The Apollo 14 mission was NASA’s third manned lunar landing.  It was an audacious time in the history of mankind. For Mitchell, however, the most extraordinary journey was yet to come.

Scientist, test pilot, naval officer, astronaut, entrepreneur, author and lecturer, Dr. Mitchell’s extraordinary career personifies humankind’s eternal thrust to widen its horizons as well as its inner soul.

After retiring from the Navy in 1972, Dr. Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences to sponsor research into the nature of consciousness as it relates to cosmology and causality. In 1984, he was a co-founder of the Association of Space Explorers, an international organization of those who have experienced space travel.

Happy Birthday Beloved DA!

From the moment of His birth November 3, 1939, Adi Da Samraj existed in an unspeakable Condition of constant Radiance and Joy.


Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailAnd when, as an infant, He acquired the capability of language, He gave a name to this Condition. He called it simply “the ‘Bright'”. His naming of the “Bright” was the beginning of His Work of Teaching the Truth about Reality.

Beloved Adi Da has recommended that everyone be told this joke on their birthday each year:

A person jumps out of a skyscraper window. On the way down, someone shouts out from a window as the jumper passes by: “How’s it going?”

The jumper responds: “So far, so good!”

Moral of the ‘joke’? —

“For human beings, death Is A Proposition and A Puzzle That Must Be Understood and Transcended (By Correct and Revealing Information, or Fullest Education, and By The Real Process Of self-Transcendence). There Is No Peace For human beings Until This Matter Is Resolved.”

— Avatar Adi Da Samraj, from Eleutherios

Today is November 3rd, the Jayanti (birthday) of Beloved Adi Da Samraj.  We wanted to post something about Beloved Da’s teaching-transmission, as well as have it relate to His and everyone’s birthday.

Transcendental Divine Imagery Art of Adi Da Samraj

Adi Da Samraj ArtAdi Da Samraj (1939-2008) created art for over forty years with a single intention: the visual communication of truth, and the means to draw the viewer beyond separateness into the paradox of “indivisible unity.”

Artistic Process – Adi Da began his first serious photographic work in the early 1960’s. From the mid 60’s to 90’s he produced a diverse body of drawings, paintings, and sculptural forms. 1998 marked the beginning of an intensive six-year period of photographic and videographic work, moving from black and white to highly saturated color, and featuring multiple exposures composed in-camera. His primary bodies of work from this period use the figurative form and other archetypes to address the deepest issues of human existence.

In 2006 the artist moved to digital technology, while still combining hand-drawn and painted forms as well as photographs within his compositions. In November 2007, Adi Da Samraj reached what he described as the “final resolution” of his entire artistic process. This turning point enabled him to create non-representational art by using a unique method he named “Orphic Font,” or abstractions constructed from “collages of pictographs.” Adi Da felt this work to be the culmination of his artistic work and philosophy, the fully realized expression of “transcendental realism.”

Exhibitions and Critical Acclaim – Full-scale fabrications of Adi Da Samraj’s images have included many forms of media, from monumentally-scaled paints on aluminum, to large-scale pigmented inks on canvas, photographic and videographic works, sculptural light boxes, plasma screen installations, and projected performance events.
