Help the Zoo
Fear-No-More Zoo in California
Today, here on The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary, Fear-No-More Zoo is a beautiful, healing, and contemplative domain. It has become one of the unique sacred elements of the Adidam community. Fear-No-More is one of the seeds of a great vision of Adi Da Samraj, a vision of all beings living in right spiritual relationship with one another, in cooperation, tolerance and peace, informed by the gift of contemplative surrender to the Very Divine Being.
Fear-No-More Zoo is one of the sacred places in this community. Feel what its particular components are. The more I get to do what I intend there, the more you will observe it. But even as it is, as simple as it is, it immediately awakens a certain congenial disposition in you, if you go down there sensitively, of course. It's another place of worship, a kind of walking, petting worship. It awakens compassion for all living beings, just being down there. And a feeling of Non-"difference", of Unity. I spend a lot of time around non-humans—keep pets and so forth. To Me, they are the same as human beings—in the ultimate sense, the same. I do not imagine them being lowly or separate, or different in any sense whatsoever.
Living within the holy site of Fear-No-More
Zoo, the animals are served as the spiritual beings we understand them to be.
One of our primary focuses is to ensure that we support their Divine contemplation.
This includes all of the practical, medical, educational, training, and safety
factors that are a natural and responsible part of caring rightly for any living
being, as well as being contemplatives ourselves. We serve the animals, rather
than merely "keep" them. Striving to support their spiritual, social, and cultural
lives is an important part of their right care. Their habitats and enclosures
are conceived of, and related to, as sacred, living, environments, rather than
Fear-No-More Zoo is a sign that My work extends beyond human beings. It provides Me with a point of contact with non-human beings, but also represents a sign to others of the fullest extension of My work. The zoo should represent the broad range of My teaching.
Here at The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary, Fear-No-More Zoo lies within an expanded domain of inter-related holy sites. This larger area is named "All True Things Park". Represented within this park of "All True Things" are the major aspects of the conditional universe. Each of these major aspects is acknowledged and served through our understanding of the Unity of all life. There is the Fear-No-More Zoo, representing the vast realms of non-human existence, and our human and Sacred relationship to them. There is a temple dedicated to the feminine aspect of the universe. The masculine aspect of the universe is represented in a temple and a great tree. There is a temple that honors parents and children, birth and death. The blessing seat of the Divine in this world is also worshipped in a beautiful temple. And seemingly out beyond the park itself, but still intimately connected to it, is a holy site that honors the Divine's extension and emergence into all lives, to touch and awaken all humans and all non-humans. This is the birth and growing place of the "Vision of Fear-No-More". Here, from among the tall trees on this sacred land, may all beings always understand and stand free.
