TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

1. [See the offer following this post for details on how you can watch a retreat on video which includes a detailed discussion of all seven of the steps on the path as used by Maharaj] 

2. 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. See the end of the post for the full meaning and implications of that. 

3. A new video ("Number Ten: Awakening Together Satsang, March 2018") has now been added in the far right column of this page, offering the opportunity to view a recent 2018 satsang session with Floyd being interviewed by Regina and Jacqueline of "The Awakening Together Group." 

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number Twenty-Five = 
A Continuation to Wear Disguises Even While Claiming to be Realized and Therefore Ego-and-Egotism-Free 

Maharaj warned those declaring that they are "realized and therefore ego-and-egotism-free" that they might yet have some outstanding self-inventory to complete. [He often sent those types out of the loft so they could go elsewhere and possibly find the "super-duper" ego-states which were still driving their thoughts and words and actions subconsciously, heavy on the "dupe" part. Did they? Likely not.]

He suggested to some that they were stuck in a “kindergarten-level of spirituality” and that they "were erroneously believing that they were being bathed in the full light of the noonday sun when they have not even really moved beyond the dull light of dawn." 

Last week five people sent spam to me. I speak not of this mystery meat . . .

. . . but of something as equally undesirable, namely, their unsolicited and also distasteful electronic messages. 

And in all five cases, the writers would assure you that they are "Fully Realized" and have thankfully and gratefully been free of all ego-states and all of the egotism which had accompanied the false personality identifications which they had assumed in their past. 

Now, they are convinced that anyone associated with the non-dual understanding would surely be interested in reading their epistles and their lengthy missives and their surely-unique dispatches in order to be further enlightened by their individual / individualized take on "the truth" and which would surely further inform any reader, no matter what the intended-reader presently understands. 

They ask no questions. They only offer hundreds of unwelcome declarative statements. A cursory glance before deleting their unsolicited and unwanted writings reveals that their content can be summarized in three words: 

Blah, and blah, and blah. 

Ironically, they are continuing to assume as much today as they did during the days when they assumed 80 or 90 or 100 false identities at any given point. 

They assume that after I spend some minutes in the morning adding a post to this blog, I spend the remaining hours of the day preoccupied with non-duality, absorbed with non-dual pointers, focusing on nothing other than realization or enlightenment or om chanting or accumulating even more insight or seeking more explanation or discussion or something beyond what the current level of "edification or knowledge or refinement or awarenesses" might be. 

When Maharaj finished the morning session in the loft, he often traveled with a friend who owned an automobile for a ride into the countryside. When he finished the afternoon session, he sometimes walked to the river and sat in the quiet, watching the water flow by. 

Here, after devoting a very small part of the day to posting, I finish my second cup of coffee; I go for a walk and pause to watch the deer which are always nearby, foraging or just hanging out or resting in one copse or another; I return to the house to prepare breakfast; I do chores, which might involve doing some laundry or repairing something inside or outside which requires maintenance; 

I go the store for supplies and groceries; I prepare book orders for shipping or engage in other activities which pay the bills, such as analyzing the personality inventory results sent to me or provided to counselors around the globe who use that same service I provide for their clients or that were sent by business owners who use the results to made hiring decisions, making more informed management decisions, or organizing more effective staff enhancement workshops. Then I send the completed reports to the clients or counselors or owners. 

In other words, I just . . . abide. Moreover, I abide naturally and spontaneously. I do not seek anything else or anything more. All beliefs have been discarded, so there is certainly no interest in allowing someone else to share their beliefs in order to impress me with their "knowledge." I have discarded all knowledge too, which Maharaj explained is just more learned ignorance. 

Because water is needed, I was shown one time how to turn on a faucet. I'm done wasting even a second on discussing my faucets. I no longer need to be taught how to turn on a faucet and do not need to understand a new way to turn on a faucet which someone had just discovered or supposedly invented. 

Now, all just happens spontaneously. Postings happen spontaneously. Some day they won't happen at all. Maharaj said that some, upon realizing, will share. Others, he said after they realize, will enter into complete silence. 

Is non-duality never discussed after a posting is complete? That would not be abiding spontaneously. If someone like Bill writes or like Andy calls - both having realized - then the conversation will be like attending a dance. We dance lightly, so we might dance about lightly through a conversation. Whatever comes up comes up spontaneously. 

Our talks are agenda-less. They are not marked by anything "personal," though they might deal with something happening at the moment in the relative. Yet I never send any unsolicited considerations. 

I might offer that point as a suggestion to those sending their unsolicited and unwanted spam here, or who might be offering their spam or blah-blah-blah to their friends or family. I might suggest that they ask those people if they give a tinker's damn about whatever they are discussing endlessly and obsessively, or I might suggest they give the captive audience an option to let them declare if 

(A) they want to keep hearing the blah-blah-blah 

or if 

(B) they would rather never hear another damn word for as long as they live about non-duality or religion or spirituality or recovery from addiction or politics or whatever else one might be fixated on and obsessing about at the moment. 

But I won't. I won't make that suggestion, because those still wearing disguises - such as the disguises of "The Wise One" or "The Clear Seer" or "The Super Religious One" or "The Spiritual Giant" - (even while claiming to be realized and therefore ego-and-egotism-free) so they would completely ignore the suggestion and say:

"Give up the 'bad' personas from the past? Sure thing. Give up the 'good' one and the 'super good' ones used to replace them? No damn way!" 

So it is. 

In the meantime, I'll just keeping tossing out the spam as fast as it comes. That'll likely include five or so pieces of that stuff this coming week which will only take about 5 seconds to discard and the minute or so to block the senders permanently.

And, also in the meantime, I'll offer some posts to those who are interested and who seek it out rather than having it sent to them unsolicited.

In addition to the five non-duality books made available without charge by Andy Gugar, Jr. (see “FREEBIES” above), you can now access nearly 3,300 posts for any topics of interest to you. 

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 god / 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); 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.]

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number Twenty-Four = 
An Obsession With Identity and An Inability to Find All That They Are Not 

Consider this exchange in the loft: 

Questioner: "I remember myself as I was yesterday and yesteryear — definitely, I am the same person." 
Maharaj: "So, to be a person, you need memory?" 
Q: "Of course." 
M: "And without memory, what are you?" 
Q: "Incomplete memory entails incomplete personality. Without memory I cannot exist as a person." M: "Surely you can exist without memory. You do so — in sleep." 
Q: "Only in the sense of remaining alive. Not as a person." 
M: "Since you admit that as a person you have only intermittent existence, can you tell me what are you in the intervals in between experiencing yourself as a person?" 
Q: "I am, but not as a person. Since I am not conscious of myself in the intervals, I can only say that I exist, but not as a person." 
M: "Shall we call it impersonal existence?" 

See? If one is "not conscious of self during intervals," then one can only accurately say "I exist, but not as a person." 

Yet how many will ever "get" that? Few. Among the non-realized masses (that is, among those still being driven by learned ignorance) the understanding is not likely to ever manifests that . . .

(a) they are not the roles or personal identities or ego-states or personas which have been assigned to them or assumed by them

and that

(b) all of the roles or personal identities or ego-states or personas which they are playing are false. 

After additional pointers (including this from Maharaj: "Your only proof is your own memory. A very uncertain proof it is!") the visitor in the dialogue above came to see this: 

Q: "Yes, I admit that on my own terms I am a person only during my waking hours. What I am in between, I do not know." 

Maharaj's key points in this regard are as follows: 

"You cannot possibly say that you are what you think yourself to be! Your ideas about yourself change from day to day and from moment to moment. Your self-image is the most changeful thing you have. It is utterly vulnerable, at the mercy of a passerby. 

"A bereavement, the loss of a job, an insult, and your image of yourself, which you call your person, changes deeply. To know what you are you must first investigate and know what you are not. And to know what you are not you must watch yourself carefully, rejecting all that does not necessarily go with the basic fact: ‘I am’. 

"The ideas 'I am born at a given place, at a given time, from my parents and now I am so-and-so, living at, married to, father of, employed by, and so on'[, are not inherent in the sense ‘I am’. Our usual attitude is of ‘I am this’. Separate consistently and perseveringly the ‘I am’ from ‘this’ or ‘that’ and try to feel what it means to be, just to be, without being ‘this’ or ‘that’. 

"All our habits go against it and the task of fighting them is long and hard sometimes, but clear understanding helps a lot. The clearer you understand that on the level of the mind you can be described in negative terms only, the quicker you will come to the end of your search and realize your limitless being."

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number Twenty-Three = 
The Inability to Understand and Accept The Non-Dual Pointer That "What Is 'Born' Must Die" 

A visitor to Maharaj's loft asked: 

"Is the witness-consciousness [a.k.a., 'The True Self'] permanent or not?" 

Maharaj answered, "It is not permanent. The knower rises and sets with the known. That in which both the knower and the known arise and set is beyond time. The words 'permanent' or 'eternal' do not apply." 

Of course, Maharaj understood that all is energy-matter and that energy-matter is all that has been, is, and shall be eternal and permanent. 

Science makes clear that energy-matter can neither be created nor destroyed. It can merely assume various forms. Conscious-energy can and does manifest within a variety of spaces. One such space on planet earth is the space created by a temporarily-manifested grouping of plant food elements which has the ability to circulate air and various forms of energy.

One of those forms is conscious-energy. 

Maharaj also understood, therefore, that nothing is "born" and no human has ever been "created." All is merely cycling in and cycling out of temporary existence. 

Questioner: "And what is death?" 

Maharaj: "It is the change in the living process of a particular body. Integration ends and disintegration sets in." 

And therein lies one of the major objections of persons among the masses to the non-dual message: 

While humans are addicted to control and therefore addicted to power and a Power which can help them control, they all have an even stronger, overriding desire, namely, the desire for continuity. 

That desire for continuity has led trillions to buy into duality-based nonsense about "an afterlife"; about "heaven" or some such other-worldly geographic place; about "hell," or some such other-worldly geographic place; good vs. bad; sinful vs. virtuous; 

good karma vs. bad karma along with "The Great Accountant in the Sky" who classifies and tallies in one of two columns in The Great Book of Karmic Records all of the deeds done by all humans of all times; rewards vs. punishment; 

religions (and - as a result - thousands of years of religious wars which continue to be fought to this day); spirituality along with the notion that there are special places on the planet which ooze out a special kind of other-worldly energy and / or awarenesses; 

a "soul" which resided in a human body and then survives the total collapse of the composite unity / elemental plant food body and abides forever in a capable-of-floating form, in the form of angels and / or guardian angels or in a form recognizable by its former "loved ones" . . .

with whom it will supposedly spend eternity praising a god who is obviously a narcissist since he really likes to be praised, glorified, sung to, extolled, honored, paid tribute to, applauded, acclaimed, worshipped, and thanked. 

[For a supposed "God of Peace" / "Prince of Peace," he certainly does not seem to value peace and quiet and the silence at all. What a noisy place his celestial home would be. Surely he would have at least once shouted, "Would you loud-ass people just shut the hell up?!!! after which he immediately reconsidered and said, "Nevermind. Ignore that. Continue singing and shouting my praises."] 

With their misplaced, delusional love of continuity, the masses are never likely to accept the non-dual pointer which Maharaj offered when asked about being "reborn": 

1. "You were not born even once so you cannot possibly be reborn"

and

2. "What was born must die. Only the unborn is deathless. Find what is it that never sleeps and never wakes" (namely, energy-matter).

The Mafia / La Cosa Nostra; the Catholic Church (with it 1.2 billion followers); 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.]

TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS

 ANNOUNCEMENTS 

1. [See the offer following this post for details on how you can watch a retreat on video which includes a detailed discussion of all seven of the steps on the path as used by Maharaj] 

2. 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. See the end of the post for the full meaning and implications of that. 

3. A new video ("Number Ten: Awakening Together Satsang, March 2018") has now been added in the far right column of this page, offering the opportunity to view a recent 2018 satsang session with Floyd being interviewed by Regina and Jacqueline of "The Awakening Together Group." 

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number Twenty-Two = 
The Belief Among the Non-Realized Masses That They Are Seeing 20-20 When in Fact They Are Almost Totally Blind 

As some are aware, there have been for five-and-a-half months certain eye-related issues and surgeries and procedures and complications which have impaired the vision here. 

Old glasses and non-prescription reading glasses have been used during those months, so when the ophthalmologist sent an email yesterday explaining that my new glasses with a current pprescription were available for pickup, it seemed as if there might be an end to the inability to see clearly. 

No such luck. After going for almost half a year without proper glasses and using glasses on occasion which did not have the proper prescription, the result was that my eyesight has undergone a series of shock and traumas. 

So warped was my vision that now I am going to have to go through a period of adjustment as I use the new glasses intermittently in order to prevent the eye strain that came yesterday as my eyes began dealing with a new challenge: 

namely, looking at things through a new pair of glasses with the correct prescription while my eyes are presently refusing to accept the new way of seeing as being "proper seeing and perceiving" after having been conditioned to accept the improper and warped view of all things which had nevertheless been deemed to be normal. 

In terms of the non-dual understanding, do you see where this is headed? Doesn't that describe exactly the way the masses look at everything?

While trying to explain to one visitor that there is no such thing as "miracles" and "exceptions to nature's laws," Maharaj said: "You just do not look carefully enough. Look well, and see what I see." 

Prior to realizing (that is, prior to casting aside all learned ignorance . . . all beliefs formerly accepted without questioning), I could neither look carefully nor look well nor see what a clear seer could see.

The problem among the non-realized is that persons can fail to see while believing that they are seeing quite well, thank you very much. 

Maharaj said: "It is like entering a dark room and saying ‘I see nothing’. A man blind from birth knows not what darkness means. Similarly, only the knower knows that he does not know." 

And there's the rub: if persons do not know what they do not know, then they can erroneously believe that they are seeing something that they are not really seeing at all. 

Images will be taken for the real. Mirages will be deemed to be real and tangible. Form over substance will become preferred. 

Trapped in more ignorance than ever during My Early Spiritual Giant Stage, I was certain that everything was exactly as I was now perceiving it in my new and special way of looking at things. 

But even after a new pair of glasses was offered by one who knew I was still blind to truth, I could not yet take them and use them. My vision was not yet clear enough to see that what I seeing was not at all what I thought it was. 

The result: a coil of rope was perceived to be a dangerous snake, and dangerous snakes were seen to be harmless or even helpful ropes. 

Maharaj said: "I see what you too could see, here and now, but for the wrong focus of your attention." 

As the case was yesterday, I was sure that the new glasses were finally going to allow me to see clearly again, but more than those new glasses was going to be required. 

It is not unlike those in the U.S. who are frustrated because they believe that others are getting what they are entitled to (and entitled too simply because they are white and think that whites are superior). . 
Then, they come across a piece on the internet, written by someone who is as equally driven by a  sense of entitlement (and who is evidently work avoidant, having the time to sit around all day and compose rants about those who are members of the "inferior races). 

Those rants, supporting their warped view, are taken to be a new pair of glasses. "Finally, "I see the light! I finally get it! I now understand! I finally see the truth clearly!" and here it is:

"The Neo-Nazis have finally given me the ability to see clearly," or 

"the white supremacists have given me the ability to see clearly," or 

"the anti-globalists have given me the ability to see clearly," or 

"the nationalists / white nationalists have given me the ability to see clearly," or 

"the alt-Righters have given me the ability to see clearly," or 

"my religious or spiritual guides have given me the ability to see clearly," or 

"my favorite politician has given me the ability to see clearly," etc., etc., etc. 

In fact, just as my new glasses with their spirituality-focused lens warped my sight even more than it had been warped originally, so the case is with those who think they have been enlightened by their fellow ranters. 

Some of you know that - wearing my new pair of spiritual eye wear - I went to visit a Cherokee Wise Man in Santa Fe. He could have said the same to me that Maharaj said about "wrong focus."

The Chief tried to shift my attention away from the spiritual workaholism I was engaged in and see the wisdom of relaxing and taking it easy, something he had come to see long before. 

Yet having had what I deemed to be "a spiritual awakening," I was rendered incapable of truly seeing clearly as opposed to having my vision blurred by looking at everything through a Dreamed-Up God Filter. 

Thorough that filter, I believed that I was seeing all when in fact the filter prevented me from seeing anything clearly, rendering me more sightless than I had been before my so-called "awakening." 

At that juncture, I had definitely joined the ranks of those whom Maharaj said were trapped in "their kindergarten-level spirituality," delusionally "believing that I was being bathed in the full light of the noonday sun when I was actually still standing in the dull light of dawn." 

My vision has been warped once more for a half year now, mainly because circumstances once more blocked me from seeing clearly. 

Maharaj: Persons "see through the net of our desires, divided [dualistically] into pleasure and pain, right and wrong, inner and outer. To see the universe as it is, you must step beyond the net. It is not hard to do so, for the net is full of holes." 

Questioner: "What do you mean by holes? And how to find them?" 

Maharaj: "Look at the net and its many contradictions. You do and undo at every step. You want peace, love, happiness but work hard to create pain, hatred and war. You want longevity and overeat, you want friendship and exploit. See your net as made of such contradictions and remove them— your very seeing them will make them go." 

So many are seeking "the Real beyond." 

Maharaj advised: "To see the unreal is wisdom." 

He said, "You need not see what you are. It is enough to see what you are not." 

His advice: "Instead of seeing things as imagined, learn to see them as they are. When you can see everything as it is, you will also see yourself as you are." But that is something that the masses have no desire to see at all.

So it is, but so it need not be.

To be continued.

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 god / 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 

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

XX"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); 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.]

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.
