The Eight-Part Admonition
“On February 19, 2008, Avatar Adi Da Spoke—and Transmitted—this Revelatory Admonition of practice, in eight parts, for His Third and Fourth Congregation devotees.” Read the book to learn more—each Admonition has its own chapter.
I will always Bless all My formally practicing devotees—now, and forever hereafter. And, after the physical death of My Divinely-Avatarically-Born bodily (human) Divine Form, I will continue to Bless all of them, just as I Do while I Am Present in bodily (human) Form. Forever, every one will call on Me in the company of those who love Me—and I will Always Be Truly Present, every then and there.

No matter how many times you read (or Listen to) My Divine Avataric Word, every time you read It (or Listen to It) you will “experience” unique and distinct responses, unique and distinct “subjective” activity, and a distinctly unique circumstance altogether. Nevertheless, the reason that My Divine Avataric Word is (in Reality) new every time you approach It is not simply that you are always going through changes. Rather, the reason My Divine Avataric Word is always new (and Always Now) is that It Is the Direct Self-Utterance of Reality Itself—Which Is Always Already Prior to time, space, “location”, “point of view”, and ego-“I”.
—From Chapter One, Listen to My Word
The practice is easy to understand, if you will just get down to it. Then you will see how complex your life is. But the practice in any moment of that complexity is a simplicity. Your life is what is difficult. The practice is not difficult. It is not complicated. It is not obscure. It is not a “technique”. It is about living the devotional relationship to Me. It is about forgetting “self”-contraction. And, if you forget “self”-contraction by Remembering Me, you will be surrendered to Me, and aware of Me, and receptive to Me. You will simply and searchlessly Behold Me and “Know” Me—and you will enter into more and more profound Communion with Me.
