Today, many are suffering - or even dying from - the Sickness because traditional methods are still being used to try to treat a far-more-potent strain of the Sickness. If persons were to wake up and realize that the traditional methods are not working, then they might seek a different treatment plan.
However, when one’s devotion is to a treatment plan that is “religious” or “spiritual” in style, then a fanaticism is sure to develop; then, devotion to that plan will be clung too with a fanatical passion and a fervor and a zeal that will block off the willingness to be receptive to any suggestion that another method might “work better” than the one they are trying.
After years of working with the Sickness, it was eventually seen (by both “maharaj” and by “floyd”) for what it really is, and for what it is not:
It is not a sickness that is centered “somewhere in a human body, more specifically, in an area somewhere in the vicinity of the heart.”
It is not a sickness which results from “a dogma-deficiency” (but actually seems to flourish in an environment of “excess dogma”).
Its symptoms can be aggravated by the egotism that accompanies the assignment or assumption of “beyond the phenomenal, spiritual, Noumenal personas.”
It is a mental sickness.
It is centered in the mind.
It can, sometimes, respond to treatments that focus on the actual location of the Sickness but never to treatments that focus on imaginary locations of the Sickness. As noted earlier, the blocked artery in the heart here a few years ago was not treated by working on the head, and head problems are not treated by working on the heart / soul / spirit / whatever.
Via the experiences which came via his experiments, Maharaj eventually came to see that 99-100% of what humans do need not be done. What he saw early on – but then lost sight of - is what was seen here early on but was also lost sight of. The same happened with Andy Gugar, Jr., without whom the postings on this site and the books written in the last few years would not have happened. For example:
Please enter the silence of contemplation.
