ENTERING INTO "THE CHILD IGNORANCE STAGE" OR "THE CHILD NO-KNOWING STATE" 

Non-Identification 

Reaching the fourth step and settling into "The Child No-Knowing State" is the only way for the planet's adult-age, false identities accumulators to return to the freedom of Non-Identification.

Regarding the "liberation via non-identification," if a seeker reaches the end of the third step and shifts into the "Child No-Knowing State," then all phenomenal identities will have been abandoned because the seeker will have seen all that one is not. As Maharaj said, "that is enough." 

Yet among many that have not totally abandoned "The Super Seeker" and "The Spiritual Giant" identity, a state of total "non-identification" may not last because the attraction of the so-called "noumenal identities" which so many believe includes their "lofty or elevated or noble or special" Identity might once again exert its influence.

Granted, after the fourth step, the so-called "True Self" or "Real Self" can come into awareness as "Pure Witnessing." 

Unfortunately, farther along "the path," some will accept as a new identity such labels as "The Absolute," "Brahman," "God," "energy," "energy-matter," "Consciousness," "Awareness," "Something," "SOMETHING!" "the Infinite Self," "The Supreme Self," "The Superlative," "THAT," etc. 

Of course all of those are still man-made labels generated by persons, labels which can be (a) useful for the sake of discussion only by some but which can be (b) taken as "Ultimate Identities" by others. 

In the book FROM THE ABSOLUTE TO THE NOTHINGNESS though, it is made clear that prior to all that can be thought to be "something" or "Something," there was . . . nothing. In the author's "Quotations" book, this is offered: 

The ultimate non-dual understanding is that there need not be any understanding. So relax. When a “state” of zero concepts is reached, it is understood that there is no “identity” at all. 

Where this present universe is, there was a void, so . . .

"Nothing from nothing leaves . . . nothing, not “SOMETHING.” 

To reach the fourth step is to know that all man-made labels generated over the millennia by non-realized persons (or by persons and teachers and gurus claiming to be realized) are false. Yes, labels and terms can be used as thorns for the sake of removing other thorns, but in the end, all identification ends if the Full Understanding manifests. 

All seeking of "my true identity" ends with that understanding, for it is then understood that 

Maharaj: "You need not know 'What You Are'. Enough to know what you are not. 

Even more freeing though is his pointer that 

"What you are you will never know, for every discovery reveals new dimensions to conquer. The unknown has no limits." 

Super Seekers who move for a while beyond all phenomenal identifications and all supposedly "noumenal identifications" can still be driven to try to move farther along the "path" and trace their roots to the Absolute, yes, but before that Absolute field of energy manifested in "this universe," that Absolute was not present because "this universe" was not present. So where does the avid, super-motivated seeker who cannot stop there look next to find her or his antecedent state? Other universes. And then? Beyond those. 

Thus their search for the original root, the original state, is endless (and futile) because there is no beginning to energy-matter, to universes, to anything. There is but the "no-creation beginninglessness," So the most that Super Seekers might find (via science) is . . . the beginninglessness. That might as well be grasped now and all of the seeking and spiritual workaholism can end now. Then natural living can happen.  

All that is real is infinite and has forever been, though it has not forever been "here," in this particular universe: 

Again, Maharaj: "What you are you will never know, for every discovery reveals new dimensions to conquer. The unknown has no limits." 

If that is understood, then it becomes clear why the premise of this book is valid: if the seeker never goes beyond the end of the third step and the transitioning into the fourth step "Child No-Knowing State," it is enough. It will be understood why Maharaj said "You need not know 'What you are'. Enough to know what you are not." 

If persons could be free of all body-mind-personality identification, then it would be enough, "enough" being able to abide naturally without the use of ego-defense mechanisms to defend and support illusory and false identities, be they the "bad" ones or the "good" ones or the "supreme" ones. 

If persons could be free of all body-mind-personality identification, then it would also be enough to abide naturally without being driven by the personality disorders discussed herein and enough being free of the relative defects and liabilities and insanity that manifest with personality disorders. 

To be free of personal identities, one could then abide as naturally and peacefully and freely as the deer that know they are but, beyond that, have no assumed identities; that have no need to purge their brains of the fiction-filled section that humans call "the mind"; that have no personality and therefore have no personality defects that need to be eliminated; that have no assumed ego-states and therefore use no ego-defense mechanisms;

and that cannot be taught ignorance and cannot learn ignorance the way that humans do, leading to the call for the un-teaching that is offered here and the un-learning that the non-Realized require if ignorance is to go and wisdom is to come. 

To stop at that point - (1) knowing what you are not and (2) realizing that "What You Are you will never know, for every discovery reveals new dimensions to conquer" - can bring to a halt the tendency of "The Super Seekers" and "The Spiritual Giants" to work forever to find some "lofty" identity and then spend the remainder of the relative trying to convince others that that is their "lofty or elevated or noble or special" identity (which, by definition, makes them "Lofty or Elevated or Noble or Special"). 

While claiming at that point to know the Oneness and Love, they are (as a result of assuming some Noumenal Identity) more separated from "others" than ever because, in their own "minds," they are better than and different from the masses who do not know what "Lofty or Elevated or Noble or Special" persons think they know. 

The fact is, the one that is free of all ego-state assumption (and therefore egotism) makes far better relative company than "The Super Religious" and "The Spiritual Giants" who believe that they are something and they are Really Something. Better to be beyond all relative identification than to be "beyond" and totally out of touch. It is one thing to be in touch with "Reality," but if that leaves one out of touch with "the reality" of the relative existence, then wherefore any actual "benefit"? 

Note again that it was those types that Maharaj was addressing when he advised: 

First, "All search for happiness is misery and leads to more misery. The only happiness worth the name is the natural happiness of conscious being" 

and secondly, 

"You need not know 'What you are'. Enough to know what you are not." 

And the understanding of those two pointers will coincide with the shift from the third of seven steps on the "path" and into the freedom of "the Child No-Knowing State." Yet those pointers are far too radical for some and far too simple for others. 

Moreover, that understanding will be far too freeing for those who want to live in a fashion that is not natural but who want to try to live in a style that they think is supernatural (i.e., in a super-spiritual mode or in a mode involving magical, metaphysical thinking . . . ignoring the fact that it has always been their thinking that has been the source of all of their relative misunderstandings and problems to begin with.) 

Once the consciousness has been "blocked" or "warped" or "contaminated," then the invitation to relax; the invitation to take it easy; the invitation to be quiet; and the invitation to be as calm as the deer that is resting in "the cool, blue shade" are all taken to be invitations that seem . . . insane; seem to be offered by one who is out of touch; seem to be offered by one who is naive; seem to be offered by one who does not understand what persons are up against; and seem to be offered by one who has not realized as much as they have realized. 

So it is, but so it need not be.

 Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "god," the "Son of god," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. 

THE EXPLANATION 

If looked at as nouns, they point to illusions and are, therefore, a total waste of time to even discuss; if looked at as verbs which are resulting in certain sane but rare behaviors among humanity, then they are worthy of some attention during the relative existence. 

Meaning? There are members of certain groups who say things such as "My concept of god in the past was of a weak god, an absentee god, A Santa Claus-type god, a mean, punishing, vindictive god, etc. Today, I am in close contact with a loving and caring god whom I worship and praise and glorify and give thanks to." 

The reply to that usually goes like this: "If you are in contact with a god that wants to be worshipped and praised and glorified, then you're dealing with someone like yourself - a narcissist - and hanging out with narcissists will never bring an end to your narcissism (that narcissism evidenced by the fact that you think you are "godly"). 

Next, in the phrase 'loving and caring god,' any supposed god that truly had her or his act together would tell you that the totally irrelevant part of that phrase is 'god' and that the only part that is relevant is the "loving and caring" part. 

"That is, a non-narcissistic their god / their goddess would say, "I care not an iota about being worshipped and praised and glorified by you or anyone else. How arrogant and insecure and needy would I have to be to want that? Forget the man-made, dreamed up noun 'god' and focus on the 'god as a verb' understanding and then go forth and let loving and caring be verbs - not adjectives - and let them generate the act of love and the act of caring and let those actions manifest through you." 

Yeshu'a (Jesus) and Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis were spot on: 

"No one shall ever see 'the kingdom of heaven.' It is within" 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and earth shall fade away." 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and hell are not geographic places 
but are states of mind, nothing more than 
concepts dreamed up by men." 
--Pope John Paul II 

"There is no hell." 
--Pope Francis, the current pope 
in an interview with journalist Eugenio Scalfari, 
a writer used by the Pope to issue off the record 
teachings which become a part of the Papal Magisterium. 

[That said, would that the popes who have shown the courage to reject a core concept of their dogma - namely, "hell" - would find the additional courage required to question the very existence of their institution in light of the centuries-long cover-up of their history of raping children and in light of the mental and emotional and psychological scarring of billions of their members past and present. 

And that need for courage also applies as questions need to be asked about why so many other sky cults are still being supported and allowed to continue to exist as well. When certain types of programming and conditioning have been shown to blind the masses, they should end. Will they? Not likely. Why? 

Because what the masses think and say and do is most influenced by the international crime families which hold sway over the masses as criminals conduct their planet-wide operations. What are the major international crime families and which are the most influential and have the largest memberships? 

The Mafia / La Cosa Nostra; the Catholic Church (with it 1.2 billion followers) whose Vatican Bank worked for decades with the Mafia while laundering mob earnings (for a 15% all-profit charge by the Bank); Protestant and Evangelical Churches (with over 1.2 billion followers) like the one I was raised in where the youth director molested and sexually assaulted young girls; big business which has long created environments in which people have been abused; powerful political bodies like the U.S. Congress, etc., etc., etc.) 

With all of those crime families, neither the followers nor the leadership ever voluntarily step down or shut down their criminal activities. Be they gangs, organized crime families, religions, big business, politicians, etc., they all want control and they all want power and they all want money, and nothing internal will interfere with the driving forces at play. 

The masses must demand that all those in charge must step down and their groups and institutions must shut down, and there's the real problem because the continuation of their crimes are enabled not as much by the people running such crime organizations as they are enabled by the masses of people who - wanting some perceived "payoff" - remain involved with them and give them money and support them and aid and abet the continued existence of those criminal enterprises and thus facilitate the ability of church criminals and political criminals and other types of criminals to continue to commit their crimes.]

ENTERING INTO "THE CHILD IGNORANCE STAGE" OR "THE CHILD NO-KNOWING STATE" 


Abiding Naturally vs. Trying to Abide Supernaturally / Unnaturally 

and 

If Only You Can Reach at Least the Fourth of Seven Step, the Other Steps Will Not Be Necessary Abiding Naturally

Of course, the recent talk of "nothingness" is reserved from those seekers at the end of the "path," not those at the beginning. In the beginning, the invitation is to be free of body identification; next comes the invitation to be free of mind identification and believing that others’ beliefs - which persons adopt as their own – define them; next comes the invitation to forfeit all belief in always-false personality identifications. What awaits? 

The unconditional happiness and / or peace which can come via returning to the (fourth step) “Child No-Knowing State.” In the latter case, to enjoy unconditional happiness and / or peace, one must transition the third step where what are usually the last three personas really dig in and entrench themselves, including “The Super Religious One,” “The Spiritual Giant” and “The Super Seeker.” 

Those three guarantee a no-peace, go-do-zoom mindset. “The Super Seeker” cannot rest. Much more supposedly needs to be known. “The Super Religious One” and “The Spiritual Giant” much engage constantly in learning more and more dogma or in the spiritual workaholism which the roles inspire. 

To invite “Spiritual Giants” to give up all of the supposedly “Special” and “Supreme” Identity or Identities they have accumulated and then abide naturally rather than supernaturally is not unlike inviting gun nuts to admit that giving the citizenry of a nation the right for each of them to build a cache of military-style assault weapons of war might not be something that a sane population would endorse. Those in both groups would find it hard to imagine, so most in both groups will reject the invitation without a second’s consideration. 

Reaching the fourth step and being free of the learned ignorance and the imposed insanity requires a sane progression from the beginning to the end, and the invitations seen to be “too radical” can only be considerate progressing through a series of steps rather than coming to that place in one fell swoop with one is to be understood coming in a specific order. 

In the anthology entitled THE ADVANCED SEEKERS' SERIES, (available below in paperback at Amazon) consider what is to be understood, and in what order: 

FROM THE I TO THE ABSOLUTE (A Seven-Step Journey to Reality) provides transcripts of satsang sessions that guided seekers through the seven-step-shift from identifying with the false "I" to understanding the Absolute. 

CONSCIOUSNESS / AWARENESS clarifies the two aspects of the summative statement of non-duality: "I AM THAT; I AM," meaning, "I AM THAT" (AWARENESS); "I AM" (CONSCIOUSNESS). 

The third book in the series, FROM THE ABSOLUTE TO THE NOTHINGNESS, provides the full treatment of the shift to identifying with the Nothingness - with the Void - and then, eventually, not even identifying with that. Eventually, there is no identify at all. 

The fourth book in that set is THE FINAL UNDERSTANDING and the transition to the end of seeking, followed by abiding naturally for the remainder of the manifestation. 

That "overview" should place in context exactly "where" on the "path" one must be in order for the pointers in this series on "Nothingness" to be relevant and level-appropriate. For those who find themselves (that is, who find their "selves") rebelling against the notion of not being something, of not being something special, of not being a spiritual person (for that is merely another assumed persona / identity), the rebellious reaction is typical for those in the early stages of the "journey." 

The invitation is especially for those who are stuck at the third step (the religious-or-spiritual-role-playing step). The invitation to those types is to move on and find that which can be found in the remaining four steps on the seven-step "path"; then, find the complete understanding of the summative statement "I AM THAT"; I AM"; 

after that, find how to move beyond all identification, including identifying with the Absolute or the Am-ness or the THAT-ness or any other "lofty and / or spiritual selves or Selves" or with a self or with Self-ness; then, grasp "the final understanding" and be done with it all. After that, the abidance can unfold in a natural, AS IF manner. 

If Only You Can Reach at Least the Fourth of Seven Step, the Other Steps Will Not Be Necessary 

If you only reach the fourth step of seven on the "path" from identification with the false "I" to abidance as the Absolute (that is, if you only reach the Child Ignorance Stage or the Child No-Knowing Stage), then you will still have transitioned beyond body-mind-personality identification. No personality (or persona, role, character, actor, ego-state, false self, guise, facade, front, or individual) will be erroneously assumed as an identity; 

furthermore, there can no longer be even the slightest sign of any pretense, cover-up, deception, disguise, pose, impersonation, pretending, subterfuge, concealment, scheme, plot or masquerade. There will be no belief that you can become something other than that which you have been, are, and shall forever be, and what that s involves no whoness, no self-ness, non-Selfness. 

Please consider again the pointer offered earlier: After having seen the results of the personality disorders that follow the development of personality, and after having seen the relative effects of the assignment or assumption of personalities / personas as identities, is it not clear why the invitation here is to at least "go back" as far as "The Child Ignorance Stage" / "The Child No-Knowing State" and then abide in a manner that is free of concepts and beliefs, free of a fiction-filled "mind," and free of the personalities that are at the root of all of the ignorance and chaos and mental disorders and insanity that plague the relative existence on this planet? 

Only then can one return to that earlier state of happiness that allowed for the enjoyment of unconditional happiness (as long as the most basic needs of food and clothing and shelter were met). Now, consider that state and what it can offer to an adult presently engaged in "seeking." Consider also the condition of the consciousness during the early days of its manifestation in any given space or form, as discussed in the introduction to this book: There comes with each form or space a seed of consciousness. 

One property of that seed is "conscious-of-ness," that is, the ability to be conscious of consciousness. That property of the seed allows the form to be conscious of itself, that is, to be conscious of its beingness . . . of its present existence . . . of its Is-ness . . . of its AM-ness. Another property of the seeds of consciousness when manifested early on is to be aware of the unicity, the Oneness; thus, over a period of approximately 20-24 months, a child senses that it is its mother and that its mother is it. One. No separation. No duality. 

As the child enters into that age bracket from two to three - an age span known in some cultures as "the Terrible Two's" - a shift occurs. The shift is discussed in detail in the author's book on "Programming," but the short version is this: During the early no-mind phase referred to herein as "The Child Ignorance Stage" or "The Child No-Knowing State," the child is witnessing in a subject-object manner but is also witnessing purely (that is, the child is sensing the Oneness). 

The child takes that familiar voice that was heard while the child was in the womb - and then takes the source of that voice that the child finally sees during the post-womb days - to be the child itself ... its self. That identification with the mother continues until the child begins to take notice of its own body and begins to notice that its body is separate from the mother's body. 

As a result, the child begins automatically to develop a sense of self without ever having chosen to do so. Only Subject-Object Witnessing remains because the earlier form of "Pure Witnessing" which sensed the Oneness comes to an end. With that belief, a sense of duality begins, spontaneously, at that point. Everything that the child will be taught from that point on will reinforce a sense of duality and separation and distance while pushing the individual - the developing persona / personas - farther and farther away from that original sense of the Oneness. 

Soon, the desires of that "individuated self" take preference over the wishes of the mother, and what was labeled as "mommie's little angel" turns into what will be labeled as a "Terrible Two" or a "little devil." Then an onslaught of programming and conditioning - alongside a heavy dose of domestication and acculturation and brainwashing and indoctrination  - begins as efforts are made to teach the child who it is, what it is, what is right and wrong, what is okay and not okay, what the child must stop doing, and what the child should always do instead. 

At that point, the seeds of learned ignorance take root and begin to form a "mind" that will be filled with fiction and non-truths and myth-and-superstition-based teachings that are presented as "the gospel truth" . . . as "the never-to-be-questioned truth." The seeds of ignorance at that point take root and begin to choke out the seeds of pure consciousness. The result is the "contaminated or blocked consciousness." 

The process that is presented by the author is a seven-step process of "going back" to the weed-free condition that existed prior to being subjected to the learned ignorance that came via programming, conditioning, domestication, and acculturation, but even if only four of seven steps are completed, an amazing shift can happen: 

Maharaj: "By knowing what you are not, you are free of it and remain in your own natural state. It all happens quite spontaneously and effortlessly" 

and 

Maharaj: "You need not know 'What You Are'. Enough to know what you are not." 

It is at the end of the third of the seven steps offered here that you will come to know what you are not, and that itself can be enough. 

The result of programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing and indoctrination is that all persons who are subjected to nonsense early on will try to abide supernaturally (a.k.a., unnaturally and abnormally) as opposed to abiding naturally. 

The process of going back with your guide / guru to that earlier "blank tablet" state is that the guru can hit a "reset button," so to speak, and the process can unfold again but, this time, in the natural way that does not result in the acceptance of nonsensical ideas and concepts and beliefs and falsehoods as truth. 

The "path" to realization provides a means that is similar to the way by which a garden can be cleansed of weeds. In the case of the earnest seeker, the weeds can be cleared away so that the seeds of consciousness can bloom in the natural way that would have happened in the absence of being taught nonsense: 

Maharaj: "This work of mental self-purification, the cleansing of the psyche, is essential" and "Being free from the false is 'good' in itself; it wants no reward. It is just like being clean - which is its own reward." The invitation is to clean out the weeds (the nonsense) from the mental garden so that the seeds of consciousness can bloom in the way that nature intended: naturally. 

When nisarga, natural living happens, you will not believe that you are something that you are not, and you will not believe that you can become something other than - or in addition to - that energy / matter which "you" have always been, are, and forever shall be. And what is the relative existence like after that understanding comes? Consider: 

Maharaj: "By knowing what you are not, you are free of it and remain in your own natural state. It all happens quite spontaneously and effortlessly." When the child's basic requirements of food and (dry) clothing and shelter were met, there were no desires and fears (which are a product of personality assumption and the fiction-filled "mind" that is the storehouse of personalities and personal, false identities). 

The invitation from Maharaj: "Turn away from your desires and fears and from the thoughts they create and you are at once in your natural state." Then there will be no need to search for happiness for one will be abiding in the same state of unconditional happiness that was last experienced while in "the Child No-Knowing State": 

Maharaj: "All search for happiness is misery and leads to more misery. The only happiness worth the name is the natural happiness of conscious being." 

But "the natural happiness of conscious being" cannot come when one believes that he or she is "being this" or "being that," and it cannot come when one has not been liberated from the driving, controlling, subconscious forces of the hidden agendas of personality: 

Again, Maharaj: "Non-identification, when natural and spontaneous, is liberation. You need not know 'What You Are'. Enough to know what you are not. What you are you will never know, for every discovery reveals new dimensions to conquer. The unknown has no limits." The last time that the vast majority of persons who make up the non-Realized masses were enjoying the unconditional happiness of "non-identification" was when they were two years old. Whatever your current age, hasn't it been long enough since that unconditional happiness was last enjoyed? 

Are you tired enough of not being able to be as happy as you were then that you are now willing to make this "final journey" and be done with all that is presently blocking your opportunity to enjoy that unconditional brand of happiness again? It is possible.

Send your information to: 
 Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "god," the "Son of god," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. 

THE EXPLANATION 

If looked at as nouns, they point to illusions and are, therefore, a total waste of time to even discuss; if looked at as verbs which are resulting in certain sane but rare behaviors among humanity, then they are worthy of some attention during the relative existence. 

Meaning? There are members of certain groups who say things such as "My concept of god in the past was of a weak god, an absentee god, A Santa Claus-type god, a mean, punishing, vindictive god, etc. Today, I am in close contact with a loving and caring god whom I worship and praise and glorify and give thanks to." 

The reply to that usually goes like this: "If you are in contact with a god that wants to be worshipped and praised and glorified, then you're dealing with someone like yourself - a narcissist - and hanging out with narcissists will never bring an end to your narcissism (that narcissism evidenced by the fact that you think you are "godly"). 

Next, in the phrase 'loving and caring god,' any supposed god that truly had her or his act together would tell you that the totally irrelevant part of that phrase is 'god' and that the only part that is relevant is the "loving and caring" part. 

"That is, a non-narcissistic their god / their goddess would say, "I care not an iota about being worshipped and praised and glorified by you or anyone else. How arrogant and insecure and needy would I have to be to want that? Forget the man-made, dreamed up noun 'god' and focus on the 'god as a verb' understanding and then go forth and let loving and caring be verbs - not adjectives - and let them generate the act of love and the act of caring and let those actions manifest through you." 

Yeshu'a (Jesus) and Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis were spot on: 

"No one shall ever see 'the kingdom of heaven.' It is within" 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and earth shall fade away." 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and hell are not geographic places 
but are states of mind, nothing more than 
concepts dreamed up by men." 
--Pope John Paul II 

"There is no hell." 
--Pope Francis, the current pope 
in an interview with journalist Eugenio Scalfari, 
a writer used by the Pope to issue off the record 
teachings which become a part of the Papal Magisterium. 

[That said, would that the popes who have shown the courage to reject a core concept of their dogma - namely, "hell" - would find the additional courage required to question the very existence of their institution in light of the centuries-long cover-up of their history of raping children and in light of the mental and emotional and psychological scarring of billions of their members past and present. 

And that need for courage also applies as questions need to be asked about why so many other sky cults are still being supported and allowed to continue to exist as well. When certain types of programming and conditioning have been shown to blind the masses, they should end. Will they? Not likely. Why? 

Because what the masses think and say and do is most influenced by the international crime families which hold sway over the masses as criminals conduct their planet-wide operations. What are the major international crime families and which are the most influential and have the largest memberships? 

The Mafia / La Cosa Nostra; the Catholic Church (with it 1.2 billion followers) whose Vatican Bank worked for decades with the Mafia while laundering mob earnings (for a 15% all-profit charge by the Bank); Protestant and Evangelical Churches (with over 1.2 billion followers) like the one I was raised in where the youth director molested and sexually assaulted young girls; big business which has long created environments in which people have been abused; powerful political bodies like the U.S. Congress, etc., etc., etc.) 

With all of those crime families, neither the followers nor the leadership ever voluntarily step down or shut down their criminal activities. Be they gangs, organized crime families, religions, big business, politicians, etc., they all want control and they all want power and they all want money, and nothing internal will interfere with the driving forces at play. 

The masses must demand that all those in charge must step down and their groups and institutions must shut down, and there's the real problem because the continuation of their crimes are enabled not as much by the people running such crime organizations as they are enabled by the masses of people who - wanting some perceived "payoff" - remain involved with them and give them money and support them and aid and abet the continued existence of those criminal enterprises and thus facilitate the ability of church criminals and political criminals and other types of criminals to continue to commit their crimes.]

ENTERING INTO "THE CHILD IGNORANCE STAGE" OR "THE CHILD NO-KNOWING STATE" 


The Constraints of "Somethingness" vs. the Freedom of "Nothingness"

Two final points are being offered for especial consideration:

A. The entire notion that you have become better, that you have become something really "good" or super religious or super spiritual, that you have really become SOMETHING (and "something special"), differs not at all from the same kind of deception and self-deception which plagues the totally non-Realized masses and which triggers use of the same ego-defense mechanisms (such as egotism and arrogance) employed by anyone assuming an ego-state as an identity.

B. Completion of the entire "journey" to Full Realization does not result in egotism and arrogance and narcissism being replaced by (always-false) "humility" or (always-false) "modesty" for those are nothing more than the opposite extreme of the "egotistical vs. humble" duality.

The full discussion of "the reality of 'no concept,' of 'no duality,' of 'no something,' and even of 'no nothing' is provided in the book From the ABSOLUTE to the NOTHINGNESS, but a few pointers from that work are relevant to these final pointers so they will be shared here for your consideration. First, one pointer from that book explains why persons who will stumble across this site and see the topic will usually leave the site posthaste:

"Some will feel that their 'true identity' is being minimized and not recognized for the glorious post-manifestation 'SOMETHING' that it is . . . all 'heavenly' and 'celestial' and 'splendid' . . . maybe even 'saintly' or 'godly' or 'cherubic' or 'spiritual' or 'divine' or 'holy' or 'something' which they believe will be 'even above and beyond' all of that."

Though Maharaj made clear that he had reached a state of "zero concepts" and "no beliefs" and then invited his visitors to do the same, few ever accepted the invitation and completed the entire "journey" required to reach that state. The reason why is addressed in the ebook Nothingness:

"Whether your identity is of a phenomenal nature or a noumenal nature in your ‘mind,’ your preoccupation with it is evidence of the fact that you hold in esteem either that which you currently believe you are, or that SOMETHING which you think you shall be forever, or both. In fact, when a ‘state’ of zero concepts is reached, it is understood that there is no ‘identity’ at all.

"It is also realized from that ‘state’ that there is nothing deserving any esteem at all, contrary to the tendency among the non-Realized to demand that they be shown ‘the honor they deserve’."

Then, for those seekers who would reach the “final level” of understanding and who are capable of reaching the zero concepts “state,” this is offered:

" 'Absolute,' 'THAT,' 'Brahman,' 'God,' 'energy,' 'energy-matter,' 'Consciousness,' 'Awareness,' and 'SOMETHING' are still man-made labels generated by persons; however, since Awareness is not even aware of awareness (or anything else) what justification can be offered for being 'concerned' with any of those labels, if Fully Realized?"

Here, the invitation is to abandon unnatural living and to abandon attempts to abide in a "supernatural" fashion (which is always rooted in magical thinking and which always generates even more magical, delusional thinking) and to then abide in a nisarga (natural) fashion. The deer and birds and fish that abide naturally assume no identity, work to maintain no images and no false identities, and care not a whit about "finding out 'Who or What They Truly Are'."

Only programmed persons need undertake that quest. To abandon the ego and egotism-based preoccupation with both self-focus and Self-focus can allow natural abidance to happen. And such natural abidance happens - and works quite well - for all of the trillions and trillions of life-forms on this planet with only one exception: the seven-billion persons who have been programmed, conditioned, domesticated, acculturated, and taught what is thought to be "knowledge" but which is really nothing more than learned ignorance.

 Recall that once all of those non-facts are assumed to be facts, then the condition of non-Realized persons / personas is exactly as described by Sara Gruen in Water for Elephants:

". . . Then you believe them, and before you know it, they're a part of your history, and if someone challenges you on them and says they're not true -- why, then you get offended."

Once offended, as happens when a series such as this is read by those who are sure that they are "something" and "Something" and "Something Spiritual," and "Something Different and Special," the "love" they speak of disappears and what is revealed is their capacity to hate, as explained in "Nothingness":

"They hate hearing that their entire existence is all much ado about nothing. They despise being told that they have been fooled. They hate pointers dealing with purposelessness and meaninglessness. They hate pointers which suggest that all of those times when they made mountains out of molehills was pure foolishness. They hate the notion of 'nothingness' and thrive on all their concepts that deal with 'somethingness.' They hate hearing that their beliefs and their concepts are fiction.

"They hate when their dualistic belief in their own eternal reward is exposed as a fraud or when their belief in an eternal punishment for their enemies is debunked. They bristle when it is pointed out that their 'life-long' attempts to defend their various concepts have amounted to nothing more than a waste of breath. They hate to hear that the energy spent in trying to make their views understood and accepted was for naught. They can become livid when it is noted that their actions (which earned applause from the masses who considered those actions to be 'accomplishments') were for nil.

"They despise the pointer that no one has ever 'made the world a better place' as a result of any action. They are offended when it is suggested that the naming of streets after them, that the building of statues in their honor, and that the construction of libraries built to house evidence of their 'achievements' amounts to just so much rubbish. They reject any suggestion that the desire to extend in perpetuity the memory of them and their 'identity' is mere tripe." So it is, but so it need not be.

Nothing said by "floyd" or by Floyd or by anyone can offend You. The only thing that can believe that it has been offended is the false-you . . . the not-You . . . the false-you's. Which part of the composite unity triad of air / earth elements / temporarily-manifested-conscious-energy could any words possibly offend? No part. What can erroneously perceive what seems to be offensive? Only the false identities that are housed in the fiction-filled "mind." The antidote to offense and hatred?

A complete purging of all of the false beliefs and bogus concepts that have been accumulated, followed by abidance as the no-concept, no-idea, zero beliefs, no-programming, no-conditioning, no-identity, nothingness-understanding, non-dual reality.

To be continued.

Non-Duality Paperback Books on Amazon.com

Five Free eBooks

Compliments of Andy Gugar, Jr.,
the following eBooks are available without charge for you or for friends:

I.
"GOOD vs. EVIL?" or "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, and INSANITY?"

The content of this eBook deals with one of the most common but erroneous beliefs that the non-Realized masses cling to and which they will fight about (and even kill over), namely, that there is a planet-wide duel going on between “the forces of good and evil” in the universe.

Either (1) the ancient view is spot on: that the "ills of the planet" are rooted in evil people, in people not being religious enough or spiritual enough, and are caused solely by bad morality; or, (2) the "ills of the planet" are rooted in ignorance, stupidity and insanity and "being good" or "being moral" does not put an end to ignorance, does not eliminate stupidity, and does not treat insanity in any way.

II.
"THE VISION"

Comments regarding the free eBook entitled “THE VISION”:

“My thanks to you and Andy.” – Andrew “Mac” McMaster

“Thanks so much for the book! And, by the way, it is brilliant and the most effective pointing that you have done. It has served to help clear the remaining blockages.” – Stan Cross

“Greatly appreciate having “THE VISION” added to my Henderson resource library that is situated on the right side of my bed for easy access! Eternally grateful for what was received and what was given.” – Robert Rigby

“‘THE VISION’ is such a well-written, condensed version of the Nisarga Yoga approach to understanding and enjoying Reality that I feel it can serve as a must-read ‘meditation guide’ for all earnest seekers.” – Andy Gugar, Jr.

III.
"Sapolsky, Maharaj, and the Non-Dual Teachings"

Dr. Robert Maurice Sapolsky is an American neuroendocrinologist; a professor of biology, neuroscience, and neurosurgery at Stanford University; a researcher; an author; and a Research Associate at the National Museums of Kenya.

There is much that a non-dualist or Advaitin or Nisargan can relate to by comparing and contrasting what Sapolsky reveals about the way certain troops of baboons live in Africa with the way that humans abide all around the globe.

This 152-page eBook catalogues the common, non-dual message shared by Sapolsky and Maharaj and reveals the ways that Sapolsky’s scientific research supports the non-dual pointers offered by Maharaj.

IV.
Seeking

In “PART ONE” it will be seen that most persons on the planet are not seeking, and most will never seek, but for those who are seeking, most will face several obstacles:

In “PART TWO” of this book, it will be seen why many criticized Maharaj for “changing his message in his later talks.” It will be seen that the changes were not about changing the message per se as much as about changing his methodology as he experimented with one version of the Ultimate Medicine after another in order to try to find an effective means for addressing the Ultimate Sickness.

He tried a religious version of the Medicine, a Spiritual version of the Medicine, and finally settled on a version which addressed to Sickness at its core . . . at the mental and emotional level.

V.
"THE MOST DANGEROUS BELIEF OF ALL"

“Dangerous” is a term that can only apply during the relative existence, but of those who do commit suicide, for example, how many shoot themselves in the foot over and over until they “bleed out”? None. They shoot themselves in the head. Why? In order to try to stop the noise - to try to stop the chatter of a thousand monkeys – to stop the noisy mind which is the area that stores the ideas, notions, concepts, mind-stuff, etc. which drives them into the depths of insanity.

And what are those ideas, notions, concepts, etc. called, collectively? "Their beliefs." The irony? They are not their beliefs at all. They are the beliefs of “others” that were set in place via programming, conditioning, etc. and which persons then think are their own.

And what are those beliefs rooted in, and what reinforces those beliefs and convinces persons that they are sacred and worth fighting over and even sometimes worth dying for? Blind faith.

This 337-page eBook discusses those issues in detail.
