WHAT IS YOUR PERSPECTIVE? Reality vs. reality, or Reality and reality, or Reality / reality?

A DAILY CONSIDERATION FOR YOU

F.: Continuing with the discussion of the differing effects on humanity of the three above-referenced perspectives, more answers will be offered for consideration regarding the invitation “to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body. What have you got to lose?” 

This question was posed: Indeed, “what have you got to lose?” Then, this observation was presented: There is much that one has got to lose if one is to be restored to sanity and enjoy a stable existence that can only come if wisdom manifests. 


So, what else does one have to lose to Realize, and what else will one lose if Realized? 


All of the perverted, accumulated “knowledge” which fills the mind and which perversely controls words and behaviors and which Maharaj characterized as learned ignorance and foolishness. Recall:


Maharaj: “ . . . Give attention to the obstacles created by the foolish mind” 

and 


“That knowingness which has come over me, that itself is foolishness."


What else? A propensity for chaos. Most are well aware that persons can become addicted to power and control and food and nicotine and alcohol and drugs, yet few are aware of how pervasive the addiction to chaos is. 


The addiction to chaos comes about because most persons nowadays are being raised in go-do-zoom cultures, and to stop or to relax or to slow down or to take it easy are all alien to most persons in most cultures. So if persons are not going and doing and zooming, they will often become bored and will “cause something to happen,” will “stir the pot,” or will “stir up some action”; in other words, they will generate some chaos or pandemonium or turmoil in order to avoid boredom. 


A woman once said, “I like to fight because I like to make up. It makes me feel alive to get into a near-violent argument, to throw things at someone I’m quarreling with, and then to enjoy some makeup sex. Your thought?” 


F.: “There is no thought here. There is only an on-going series of uninterrupted awarenesses.” 


She: “And what are you aware of about me?” 


F.: “I am aware that you are being driven to behave in a way which usually only happens in the presence of bats**t craziness and which indicates the need for a strict regimen of professional, psychological care, probably long-term.” 


She: “I would like to throw something at you right now, you a**hole!” 


F.: “Indeed, I bet you would.” 


[Such is also the case with most persons who are suffering from adrenal deficiency. Their adrenal glands are underfunctioning because they are not adhering to the proper food plan - there being three different plans - that would be appropriate for the specific metabolic body type they have. Most have no clue that there are three very different, metabolic body types which each need a different food plan: about 1/3 of the humans on the planet would do well on a veggies-only plan; about 1/3 need a meat / chicken / turkey / protein plan; and about 1/3 need a combination food plan.]


Of the kinds of insanity revealed by a woman – and anyone else – who is addicted to chaos and quarreling and fighting in order to “feel alive,” Maharaj said: 


“Insanity is universal. Sanity is rare. Yet there is hope, because the moment we perceive our insanity we are on the way to sanity. This is the function of the Guru – to make us see the madness of our daily living. Life makes you conscious, but the teacher makes you aware.” (Or not.)


All of that, and more, is what you have got to lose. 

To be continued.

A DAILY CONSIDERATION FOR YOU


F.: Continuing with the discussion of the differing effects on humanity of the three above-referenced perspectives, more answers will be offered for consideration regarding the invitation “to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body. What have you got to lose?” 

This question was posed: Indeed, “what have you got to lose?” 


Then, this observation was presented: There is much that one has got to lose if one is to be restored to sanity and enjoy a stable existence that can only come if wisdom manifests. 

So, what else does one have to lose in order to Realize, and what else will one lose if Realized? 


How about the bondage of being trapped in ancient, lie-based, hand-me-down beliefs? Those beliefs are rooted in myths, superstitions, and the fears which lead to prejudice and to a sense of being “apart from” rather than “a part of” the singular wholeness, the unicity, the Oneness, the unity beyond the mistakenly-perceived multiplicity. 


How about the burden of constantly being fooled? [Krishna said that those who understand that "he" is actually THAT which is beyond both the beingness and the non-beingness are wise. The rest are fools. Here, rather than assign an identity – “The Fool” or soon to be "The Super Fool" – the point is that there are those assuming false identities who are not “fools” but who have been fooled and who are abiding under the influence of the foolishness passed down to them. It is not unlike Maharaj’s approach: he never said that there are “The Ignorant Ones,” “The Stupid Ones,” and “The Insane Ones.” He noted instead that there is “ignorance, stupidity and insanity” as opposed to there being ones who are ignorant and stupid and insane.] 


For example, have you known people who are so na├»ve that they are constantly being fooled by people they date or the people they have been married to? People who stayed in relationships in which they were being abused (often because of the ulterior motives and fears and desires of their assumed and assigned identities and because they want to cling to their “better lifestyle” at all costs and because they are convinced – by another or by oneself – that the beatings won’t happen again)? They have been fooled, and their ego-states are joining into that “confederacy” and are also fooling them.


To Realize is to lose such foolishness, to be freed from being driven by one’s “broken picker,” to cast aside all distortions and distorted thinking and distorted beliefs, and then to see clearly. 


So, what else does one have to lose to Realize, and what else will one lose if Realized? 


How about mental illness, which is at the core of the Ultimate Sickness and which is rooted in personality? For ages, the non-dual sages have begged, pleaded with, advised or invited seekers to be rid of personality and its debilitating effects. 


Personality is formed during a child’s early years as a way to try to counteract the dysfunctionalism of one’s family of origin, and the proof that all families are dysfunctional is that all persons develop personalities. 


From personalities, personality disorders develop, and from untreated personality disorders, neuroses and psychoses develop. And nothing generates more personas than religion and spirituality, so nothing generates more distortion and neuroses and psychoses than religion. 


Religion inspires persons to videotape themselves cutting off another human’s head. Religion inspires soldiers from the U.S. to use rifles with Bible verses engraved on them to kill non-Christians. 


Religion inspires the members of one group to shot missiles at their neighbors and inspires their neighbors to shoot back more missiles. 


Religion inspires members of one sect to force members of another sect to lie down on their stomachs so that those who believe they are members of "the right sect" can riddle the bodies of those in “the wrong sect” with thousands of bullets. 


Religion inspires couples to allow men with no children to tell couples how many children they should have, and the more the better: 3 or 6 or 9 or 12? More and more and more are better in order to build up those church rolls by blindly breeding like rabbits, even as scientists warn that it is over-population - not global-warming, not war, not meteorites, not anything else - that will present the greatest threat and challenges to all humanity in the coming decades.


It is their religious personas which inspire people to talk the grandest nonsense imaginable. This exchange was heard recently in a grocery store, a conversation between a mother and her young daughter (maybe 8 to 10 years of age): 


Child: “Momma, I don’t like going to the hospital and seeing Grandmother so sick. Is she going to die?” 


Mother: “No, God is going to let Grandmother live for a very long time because she helps so many people.” 


“Ignorance. Stupidity. Insanity.” Learned and taught and learned and taught, ad infinitum, passed down from one fooled generation after another; passed down by persons who have been subjected to the most outrageous levels of “ignorance and stupidity and insanity” and who now are subjecting their offspring to that same foolishness and “ignorance and stupidity and insanity.” 


Other personas inspire persons to buy a house with a monthly note that is double what they can afford. Personas inspire others to buy houses they can afford that have double and triple the space that any family could ever require. 


So, what do you have to lose? Ignorance. Insanity. Serious mental illness. Personality disorders. Neuroses. Psychoses. Misery. Suffering. Delusions of contentment that are not real. Being fooled. Being fooled by “others.” Being fooled by self / selves. Unadulterated, undiluted, complete and total foolishness. Abject, hopeless, utter foolishness, and foolishness-generated obstacles that burden the relative existence of all non-Realized persons.


Maharaj: “ . . . Give attention to the obstacles created by the foolish mind” 


and 


“That knowingness which has come over me, that itself is foolishness." 


All of that, and more, is what you have got to lose. Yet so few will ever be willing to be free of it all. So it is. 


Alas, most will never understand that there are no "degrees of freedom." One is totally free . . . or one is not free at all.

A DAILY CONSIDERATION FOR YOU


F.: Continuing with the discussion of the differing effects on humanity of the three above-referenced perspectives, more answers will be offered for consideration regarding the invitation “to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body. What have you got to lose?” 

This question was posed: Indeed, “what have you got to lose?” Then, this observation was presented: There is much that one has got to lose if one is to be restored to sanity and enjoy a stable existence that can only come if wisdom manifests. 


Were persons to realize that they are not persons or personas or their assigned and / or assumed personalities, then they would stop upgrading their assigned and / or assumed selves and would stop downgrading the assigned and / or assumed selves of those they suppose are “others” - a supposition that is the result of a failure to understanding the unicity. 


If that were to happen, there would be no assumption that one is “The Husband” or “The Wife”; that, in turn, would preempt the eventual assumption that one is “The Super Husband” or “The Super Wife”, which is a belief that follows the pattern of this constantly-occurring scenario: 


once an ego-state / personality / false identity is assigned or assumed, then all sorts of ego-defense mechanisms are triggered, one being egotism. Shortly after egotism is triggered, then an upgrading of one's perceived self follows; thus, “The Husband” becomes (in his mind) “The Super Husband” and “The Wife” becomes (in her mind) "The Super Wife."


Why should that matter? You could not ask that question if you have been in a “relationship” with – or married to – a narcissistic Personality Type Three, for example, or an arrogant, controlling Type Eight who will usually develop a full-blown cause of what is called here “malignant narcissism.” 


The irony with egotistical personas - and they will all be egotistical as a result of the "upgrading" scenario described above - is that they have little tolerance for any degree of egotism except their own. 


So what does one have to lose? How about the acceptance of egotism-generating false identities / personalities / ego-states / roles / stage characters / masks which generate a false sense of “self-ness” and “individuality” and “uniqueness” and “distinctiveness,” all of which are the bricks that build hierarchical walls which separate people from each other; 


which inspire assigning people by race or socio-economic status to places on hierarchies which, in turn, foster discrimination and more ego-state related arrogance; and which set the stage for quarreling and clashing and stress and anger and fighting and conflict between two persons, groups of persons, organizations, states, nations, religions, spiritual movements, and all of the other cults which cult-ures generate. 


What have you got to lose, therefore? Everything that preempts peace, and everything that prevents the manifestation of the internal peace that is a prerequisite for “external” peace. 


What have you got to lose? Everything – if you have not Realized – which causes everyone who deals with you to also have to deal with your judgmentalism, your tendency to critique everyone and everything, your prejudices, your arrogance, your conceit, your haughtiness, 


your sense of superiority, your superciliousness, your condescension, your tolerance of dualistic hierarchies, your actions which contribute to the building and fortification of dualistic hierarchies, your tolerance of war, your tolerate of killing, and / or all of the other distorted thoughts and words and actions that flow from personality assumption. 


A woman called last week and asked if she could bring by some coffee and breakfast snacks. When she arrived, it was clear that she was in a shock-like state. The husband of a friend she was visiting came in to join their conversation. He mentioned that sometime earlier he had been involved in the fighting in Afghanistan for years. 


When the woman responded with something like, “That must have been difficult for you,” he laughed and said, “Hardly. It was a joy.” 


She: “Really?”


He: “Hell yeah.” 


She: “What part could have been a joy?” 


He: “The part where it was made clear by our commander that if we saw one of those guys being an ass, we could shoot him down right then and there and they’d be no recourse. We’d done the world a favor.” 


She: [Nothing. No ability to respond. To use Maharaj’s term, she had been “stunned into silence.”] Looking toward her friend, she saw the woman looking down at her hands in her lap as her husband spoke. 


He: “And the part where I was able to make a fortune when I left the military and became a contractor with a company working for the U.S. government and was able to do the world a lot more favors for a lot more money. Hahaha!” 


She: [Stunned deeper into the silence.] 


He: “Now, we finally have enough money that we can move to North Carolina where more than 2/3’s of the people are white and where I have a job waiting for me on a local police force there. The drawback is that I’ll have to be more careful ‘doing the world some favors,’ but it’s getting better. Look at the news. People are tired of asses taking over the U.S., and they are ready for us to start getting rid of them like I did in Afghanistan. The shame is we can’t just shoot them here and walk away without consequences like we did over there, but maybe someday! Ha!” 


Soon after leaving there, the woman was parking in the drive and walking in with our coffees and breakfast snacks, and we talked. We talked of the Ultimate Sickness, the pervasive insanity, the results of children who are raised with attachment disorders and are set up to become sociopaths like that man. 


We talked about the cold-bloodedness that comes from cultures that pass on their “we-are-the-greatest-nation-on-earth” xenophobia-generating attitudes; we talked about the short walk required nowadays to move from arrogance to pathology. 


We talked about many of the pointers offered by Maharaj and Prince Ea and others that understand the Understanding. Then, we both became very quiet. We sipped our coffee, slowly. We did not have the appetite to eat the breakfast snacks. 


What have you lost your appetite for? Anything? Almost everything in your cult-ure that results in the Sickness? 


To Realize and then abide sanely and wisely and Lovingly, one must lose her or his appetite for all of the nonsense and hierarchy-based prejudice and ignorance and stupidity and insanity that were so evident in those words that the woman heard coming forth from that man who is off to North Carolina to spread his words of hate and fear and sociopathy there as that speck of blocked consciousness continues to offer up its contaminated and contaminating message.


And that message is all-too-often the one that is drowning out the non-dual message which is spoken by the unblocked, re-purified consciousness in a few rare pockets of sanity and Love around the globe. So it is, but so it need not necessarily be. 


To be continued.

A DAILY CONSIDERATION FOR YOU


F.: Occasionally, a few moments are used to share with visitors to the site exactly what the focus is here. With there being teachers who use a variety of the five main methods of teachings non-duality; with there being so many different types of yoga that can be combined with the five types of teaching; 

with there being so many different motives among those out there who are presenting themselves as “Non-Duality Teachers or Gurus”; and with some merely offering the understanding without motive while others have set their sights on accumulating millions or billions of dollars off the message (which many have), then the effort is made here for visitors to know what to expect and what not to expect.


Here, the Direct Path Method is used in combination with the Nisarga Yoga. The eBook below entitled FROM THE I TO THE ABSOLUTE (A Seven-Step Journey to Reality) contains transcripts of the tapes of the last series of satsang talks offered years ago before they were discontinued because there was a shift to offering pointers via the internet, for free, in order to reach more seekers. (And yes, some modestly-priced books are also offered in order to pay the basic bills, which actually is accomplished only because there are also some that regularly contribute donations to allow the postings to continue.)


In FROM THE I TO THE ABSOLUTE, the reader is informed - as were the seekers in attendance at the first of every series of satsang sessions - that the final intent of the talks is to allow for the manifestation of what is called here “Applied Advaita.” Without using that name, applied advaita is actually what Prince Ea’s talk was about and what the content of the post-talk interview was about. (See earlier posts to view that video). It is not about just grasping the Understanding but is about applying the results of the Understanding throughout the remainder of the manifestation. So this is what happens here:


1. The Direct Path Method and the Nisarga Yoga are used as a means for sharing non-duality and Nisargan pointers.


2. The intent of the approach here is not for seekers to become well-versed in the Direct Path Method or any other method.


3. The intent is to facilitate the process of Realization for seekers in order that they might, first, find out all that they are not;


4. to complete all of the steps required to Realize, that is, to be in touch with Reality and reality; to be restored to sanity; and to function throughout the remainder of the relative existence from a state of wisdom and Love;


5. to overlay Reality on reality;


6. to then abide in a natural manner / nisarga manner / applied advaita manner for the remainder of the manifestation; and then (for those that are willing) to share the Understanding;


7. to allow those who are willing to hear the message to also abide in a manner of living that allows “others” to grasp and apply the Advaitin, non-dual, not-two understanding to the remainder of their relative existence in order to bring an end to the constant fluctuations and instability and chaos which plague the lives of the masses and which cause persons to “experience” . . .


sadness vs. gladness; anger vs. contentment; fear vs. Love; hate vs. Love; over-reacting vs. composure; a false sense of separation and different-from-ment and better-than-ment vs. a knowing of the Unicity.


Only wisdom can facilitate the abandonment of all notions about hierarchies that are used to elevate some in certain cult-ures while suppressing and inhibiting and controlling and abusing those at the lower end of man-made hierarchies.


Peace can only come after the elimination of the “mind” and after an end to the assumption of false ego-states / personalities as identities, and those assumptions only come after taking all of the steps necessary in order to come to this Understanding; moreover, peace remains only if the understanding is “applied” during one’s relative existence and throughout the waking hours of every day.


Now, to continue with the discussion of the differing effects on humanity of the three above-referenced perspectives and to move ahead with Prince Ea’s invitation to “. . . try to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body. What have you got to lose?”


Indeed, “what have you got to lose?” There is much that one has got to lose if one is to be restored to sanity and enjoy a stable existence, which can only come if wisdom manifests. It is wisdom that brings to an end the belief in the baseless concepts that have been dreamed up over the ages; that can bring to an end the astounding levels of ignorance that plague the masses; and that can bring to an end the ill effects of the Ultimate Sickness which has resulted from the masses having been bizarrely programmed and conditioned and brainwashed and indoctrinated and acculturated and domesticated.


What one has also got to lose is focusing only on what is on the outside while having “forgotten that which is looking outside, Our Selves.”


What one has got to lose is the now commonplace inability to answer these basic questions: “Who are You? Who are You in the deepest sense? I’m not talking about your race, your ethnicity, your heritage, your ancestry. And I’m not talking about your ‘experiences,’ your ‘memories.’ Who are You in the deepest sense?”


What one has got to lose is the inability to understand that “there can never be external peace if there is not first internal peace.”


Thus, Prince ended with this: “I urge you to try to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body” before asking: “What have you got to lose?”


What about you? Have You seen that You need not focus on what you can gain but would do well, relatively speaking, were You to focus on what you have to lose (in fact, on what you absolutely must lose) if you would be freed from all of the symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness.


There are two ways to be freed from that Sickness:


(A). Take mahasamadhi (which the masses call “death”). Mahasamadhi results in a return
to the universal pool of elements of the parts that formed an elemental plant food body. That means that the elements making up the brain also return to the universal pool of elements and it means that the part of the brain called “the mind” will end as well. That is one means by which one can finally be free. That allows for an end to the Ultimate Sickness because all ideas, concepts, notions, perceptions, thoughts, impressions, theories, hypotheses, and views (all forming one’s “beliefs” which are stored in the mind and which amount to nothing more than the “learned ignorance” which feeds the Sickness) also end when their “storehouse – the “mind” - ends.


(B). Realize. Realize the Truth; realize the lies. Be restored to sanity and to a state of wisdom which allows one to finally be able, consistently, to differentiate between what is true and what is false.


The invitation is to see the hatred and chaos that flow from (a) a lack of understanding and from (b) a lack of having grasped the Understanding and then to seek that which can bring Love and stability to fruition.


To be continued.

A DAILY CONSIDERATION FOR YOU


F.: Continuing with the discussion of the results of those three perspectives on humanity and with Prince Ea’s invitation to “. . . try to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body. What have you got to lose?”

Yesterday began a look at what, indeed, you have to lose and why it must be lost if one is ever to be free of “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” and a lack of internal peace.


K. Prince made clear the non-dual pointer that it is parents and grandparents (still living under the influence of the ignorance and sanity passed down by their “ancestors”) who have now passed down - via conditioning and brainwashing and indoctrination and programming and acculturation and domestication - their perverted and nonsensical hand-me-down beliefs which now generate the dis-ease and restlessness and anxiety and chaos that plague humankind as the Ultimate Sickness spreads more each day.


Miss this piece that Prince referenced and you will miss the entire understanding, no matter how many pieces (of the puzzle that the relative has become) which you might have picked up along the way during your seeking.


It was your parents (or guardians or whatever) who raised you in a dysfunctional environment. (Sorry about that slap to the ego[s] of some, but children do not come with a “how-to” manual for parents to use as a guide for raising a psychically-healthy child. With no manual, parents have nothing to use except what was used with them, and what was passed to them were bogus beliefs which control their thoughts and which now control yours if you have not Realized Fully and discarded all of their conditioning and other nonsense.)


The result of being raised in a dysfunctional environment is the development of personality / personalities. Those are the tools that children use to try to cope in “a world” dominated by the insane giants in their surroundings. See? Personality evolves from dysfunctionalism, and therefore it can only generate more dysfunctionalism, taking away all ability to make conscious choices and driving persons instead with the hidden agendas of each personality’s fears and each personality’s desires.


An advertising slogan widely used in the past to try to sell a particular brand of car said: “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.” Similarly, the non-dual message is not your father’s message; instead, it is a message that is totally opposite from your parents’ message. This is a no-belief and no-belief system message, a zero concepts message, a non-dual understanding.


The words of Maharaj and the words of Prince Ea and the words which the consciousness speaks here are not your grandparents’ words nor your mother’s words nor your father’s words if their words originated from anything other than the pure, unblocked consciousness – which is highly unlikely.


Their words were more likely words which were inspired by the impure, blocked consciousness; which were words of unconsciousness; which were words that they heard from their own cult-ure and that they parroted to you; and which are words that you are now simply parroting, if the consciousness is not speaking through you. Why is that the case? Because of personality.


Personality is formed by the age of six or so, and from that point on, personality determines what you think, what you say, how you feel, and what you do. If there is a six-year-old persona at the controls of a 30 or 40 or 50 or 60 or 70 year-old body, then that body will be driven through life by a six-year-old’s agenda.


The thoughts and words and deeds of those adult-age-bodies with their minds and mouths and belief systems will actually be the words of a six-year-old, and six-year-olds will blindly and unconsciously repeat the thoughts and words and beliefs which they have heard from those around them in their cult-ure who are speaking blindly and unconsciously.


Why do children do that? (1) To protect themselves from the punishment of saying anything that contradicts their parents’ beliefs and (2) to try to get love and approval from the adult-age-children around them who are themselves overly-concerned with getting love and approval from others.


The result? A global population of persons who think and talk and behave like six-year-olds, no matter the age of the body in which that "child" remains; thus, adult-age persons who are still wanting to be loved and accepted are speaking in a childish fashion, thinking and talking and behaving in childish ways that are inspired by a subconscious effort to garner approval from parents or from the members of their community / culture / workplace.


And because those non-Realized persons around them all have bogus beliefs and insane thoughts and all have the capacity to be as cruel – under certain given circumstances - as the meanest psychopath terrorizing any community, then child-adults will parrot the prevalent thoughts and words and will mimic the prevailing actions of those in their cult-ure. 

 
The result of that? Lying; denying one's real motives; avoiding Reality and reality; avoiding facts; avoiding an understanding of causes rather than attacking persons for the results of their finally reacting (and, yes, often over-reacting) to their abusive treatment which built up stress and anger over the years and then finally explodes like a suppressed-for-too-long volcano.


If the pure, unblocked consciousness speaks, it can only speak Truth and Love (a.k.a., Unicity, Oneness). If the consciousness is blocked and if one continues to allow a perverted cult-ure to influence her or him, then the impure, blocked consciousness will speak in the unconscious manner in which such blocked consciousness speaks.


Or, such impure, block consciousness will not speak at all but will turn its back and withhold the sharing of Truth and Love. Then, an environment - similar to that which existed under Nazi-domination in the 1930's and 40's in Europe - will continue and prevail.


Because it is still relevant today, you are invited to consider what one minister said when he looked back over the inaction and avoidance which characterized those who stood by and watched the abuse of a race of people back then.


Martin Niemoller, speaking of the cowardice of Germans following the Nazis’ rise to power and the subsequent purging of their chosen targets, one group after another, said:


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a Socialist.


Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a Trade Unionist.


Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.


Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Next, see that same type inaction and avoidance as it continues today with the poor being discriminated against, with members of racial minorities being discriminated against, etc. Today, the U.S. public is being whipped into a frenzy of fear over the possibility of attacks from ISIS / IL, while all the while, those in the U.S. are already doing far more relative damage to themselves as a result of the duality which has the country split evenly between those in one political party and another;

those of one dominant and dominating religion vs. another; those of one race who are dominating and abusing the members of a another; those pro-union and those anti-union; those who are pro-war and those who are anti-war; those who are pro-authority and those who are not surprised at all when they see and disavow the authorities as they abuse their power, which so often they do.


This is all the result of dualistic beliefs about hierarchies and different-from-ment and better-than-ment and separation. This is all about ego-states and egotism and arrogance and judging.


And all of the above is what “ignorance and stupidity and insanity” look like when at play. Want to be rid of it all? Then one must stop with the child-driven search for "attaboys" or attagirls” from your sick cult-ures; must stop avoiding Truth; must stop failing to see the difference in “love” and “Love.”


Find out WHO is within that is still driving thoughts and words and actions as a result of subconsciously wanting a sick cult-ure to respect you and admire you and "love" you and approve of you, all of which will drive you to say what the sickest around you want to hear or will drive you to stand by and say nothing when abuse is witnessed.


Prince Ea's invitation was to stop living under the influence of the conditioning of parents and grandparents and previous generations who were clueless and to find - and then be - Your Self. Of course, that’s all just a suggestion, but what have you got to lose by trying it?


To be continued.


Please enter the silence of contemplation.

A DAILY CONSIDERATION FOR YOU


F.: Continuing with the discussion of the results of those three perspectives on humanity: 

The interview of Prince Ea re-posted earlier ended thusly: “I urge you to try to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body. What have you got to lose?” 


Then this was asked at the end of yesterday’s post: 


Indeed, what have you got to lose? Tomorrow, a discussion of what you have to lose . . . which must be lost if one is ever to be free of “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” and a lack of internal peace. 


The discussion can begin by revisiting certain teachings / unteachings from the video which point out many things that could and should be lost: 


(A) One thing that can be lost is the false belief that persons can change the world, peacefully or violently; once that is lost, then it might be understood by some that only their perspective can change, allowing for a change to come in regards to their “self” perspective (which could offer a new perspective that could result in wise and sane words and actions).


(B) What can be lost are the effects of the brainwashing that all persons have been exposed to if they would but set aside their egotistical attachment to their thoughts and beliefs and see that they have been brainwashed at every level. 


(C) What can be lost is the refusal among the masses to avoid the questioning of every thought and belief stored in their nonsensical minds, seeing that all of their beliefs are the result of a bogus, fictional-filled, conditioned mind. 


(D) Persons can lose the blockages that have prevented them from seeing the actual effects of their conditioned thoughts (beliefs), including things that they have fought over, killed over (or supported killing over), died over (or supported others dying for), been angry over, been sad over, and been depressed over. 


(E) They can lose their blindness to the fact that their thoughts / beliefs are not even really theirs but have come from their culture; then they might see that the word refers to a cult-ure, to the cults that are controlling the thoughts and words and actions of all non-Realized persons (those cults including but not being limited to sky cults / religious cults / spirituality-involved cults; political cults; business cults; eastern religion cults; self-help cults; self-improvement cults; satanic cults; occult cults; racist cults; cults promising transformation; communal cults; ashram cults; Native American cults; etc., etc., etc.)


(F) They can see that they could well lose the effects of their acculturation which promotes the concepts that race is real; that people of one color are different from people of another color; that people with skin of one color are inherently better than people with a different color of skin; that war and violence can bring peace; and that love is weakness. 


(G) They can lose the consequences of clinging to and valuing the thoughts and beliefs that their parents and grandparents (and generations ad infinitum) have believed and passed down but which have not brought about any lasting solutions to humankind's problems but have been at the root of the problems instead. 


(H) They can lose the notion that it is just fine to continue that cycle.


(I) They can lose . . . set aside . . . discard completely what has not worked, namely, hand-me-down beliefs; efforts to change “the world”; promoting war; promoting peace, etc. and then seek to know that which is looking outward from within. 


(J) They can lose their beliefs about who they are and then find Who / What They Are (though knowing "who" they are not would suffice).

A DAILY CONSIDERATION FOR YOU


F.: Continuing with the discussion of the results of those three perspectives on humanity:

The Views of Those in the “Reality / reality” Group: Pointers from the Prince Ea video, Part Two 


For those that seek a “Reality / reality” awareness, consider some of the additional pointers in the video that are a part of these teachings which are meant to un-teach and thereby allow seekers to reach that understanding: 


[1-13 are offered in the previous post] After urging people to set aside the beliefs and thoughts of their parents, grandparents, ancestors, etc., he continued: 


14. “This is our time, right now. Billions have come before; billions will come after.” (And what “positive” effects have come from any of those hand-me-down, distorted, false beliefs and insane thoughts of those billions and billions? Nil. Nothing. Nada. Relatively speaking, there has not been one “positive effect” that has resulted from any of the millions of baseless concepts that have been dreamed up over the ages by the ignorance-plagued masses who have come before. And expect the same from the masses that are yet to come who will also be just as bizarrely programmed and conditioned and brainwashed and indoctrinated and acculturated and domesticated.) 

15. “Everybody's worried about ‘changing this’ and ‘changing that’ . . . about what’s on the outside, but we’ve forgotten that which is looking outside, Our Selves.” 


16. “Who are You? Who are You in the deepest sense? I’m not talking about your race, your ethnicity, your heritage, your ancestry.” 


17. “And I’m not talking about your ‘experiences,’ your ‘memories.’ Who are You in the deepest sense?” 


18. “There can never be external peace if there is not first internal peace.” 


(The incident that led to Prince Ea’s talk involved the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen – age 18 – who was shot six times by a white police officer named Darren Wilson. 

In an earlier post, it was noted that nowhere near all of the facts are yet in and that the most that can be said with some degree of certainty at this point is that the incident seems likely to involve to some degree “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity”
[Maharaj] crossing paths with “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity.” 


What is known about either of them having the “internal peace” which Prince references? 


WILSON 

People who know Wilson describe him as someone who grew up in a home marked by multiple divorces and tangles with the law. His mother died when he was in high school. A friend said a career in law enforcement offered him structure in what had been "a chaotic life." He was first hired as a policeman in Jennings, Missouri. 

An investigative reporter wrote, 

"What he found in Jennings was a mainly white department mired in controversy and notorious for its fraught relationship with residents, especially the African American majority.

"The small city of Jennings had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired. New officers were brought in to create a credible department from scratch. 


"That was three years ago. One of the officers who worked in that department, and lost his job along with everyone else, was a young man named Darren Wilson. Some of the Jennings officers reapplied for their jobs, but Wilson got a job in the police department in the nearby city of Ferguson. 


"A newly released report by a nonprofit group of lawyers identifies Ferguson as a city that gets much of its revenue from fines generated by police in mundane citations against residents. Policing became a tense, racially-charged, fearful and potentially-violent series of interactions. Distrust became institutionalized, as much a part of the local infrastructure as the sewers and power lines."


A friend of Wilson's said: “He had a rough upbringing"
(in a small town in Texas). "In Wilson’s childhood," the friend said,“there was just no structure.” There were problems at home: fighting, no peace. Parents divorced. Mom remarried. In 2001, when Wilson was a freshman in high school, his mother pleaded guilty to forgery and stealing. She was sentenced to five years in prison, died when Wilson was 16, and his stepfather took over on a limited basis for about two years, but basically, Wilson was on his own. Recently, before the shooting, Officer Brown also had divorced. 


So during his early years in a home fraught with fighting, there was not likely anything that resulted in any “internal” peace being at play; and right up until more recent times when whatever was going on in his own home ended in a divorce, there was not likely anything that resulted in any “internal” peace being at play. And people who know Wilson have offered no evidence that there was ever any “internal” peace that was consistently at play. 


BROWN

All of his parents’ beliefs about Brown's being an ideal child notwithstanding, a film of him in a store minutes before the shooting purports to show the large-bodied Brown stealing some cigarillos and intimidating the diminutive store owner who tried to stop him. There is no evidence in that film, if it does indeed show Brown, that there was any “internal” peace at play. 

So might the earlier description of the incident 


(having possibly involved some degree “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” crossing paths with “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity”

be modified to speculate that 

this might be a case where “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” along with an absence of internal peace crossed paths with “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” along with another case involving an absence of internal peace? 

Neither Brown nor Wilson had any ability to “change ‘the world’,” but had they heard the message offered by Maharaj and also offered by Prince and also offered here - and if one or both of them had also understood the message - then either or both of them could have undergone a shift in their thoughts and words and actions which led to the fatal shooting
.)


Prince continued:


19. "Once you figure that out - that there can never be external peace if there is not first internal peace - then the entire ‘world’ (that is, one's perception of ‘the world’) will transform, will change."


20. "As more and more people find Their Selves, mankind will then have the opportunity to transform into kind man."


21. "Jesus said, ‘Forgive them; they know not what they do.’ And they know not what they do because they know not who they are.” 


22. “I urge you to try to find out who You are inside your body – what You are inside your body.”


23. “What have you got to lose?” 


TOMORROW:
Indeed, what have you got to lose? Tomorrow, a discussion of what you have to lose . . . which must be lost if one is ever to be free of “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” and a lack of internal peace. 


To be continued. 


Please enter the silence of contemplation.

The following three eBooks are available without charge, compliments of Andy Gugar, Jr. You can scroll down through the book section below to find information for requesting free copies 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. 

Maharaj said of each that visited his Bombay loft, “Only that person will visit this place whose virtue and sin have come to an end.” He also said that the problems of humankind are problems associated with the Ultimate Sickness and that three of the key traits of the Ultimate Sickness are "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity."

To that end, 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.



  While in South Africa in 2011, I was introduced to A Primate’s Memoir (2002) by Dr. Robert Maurice Sapolsky. 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. 

A Primate’s Memoir (which documents Sapolsky’s years in Africa while studying baboons), was recommended because 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. The book also portrays an unconventional way of studying neurophysiology to determine the effects of stress on life expectancy. (And the reduction or elimination of stress among humans is one of the aims of the non-dual understanding.) 

Now Sapolsky’s recent findings are offered in a documentary film entitled “Stress: Portrait of a Killer.” [The 56-minute film is available on YouTube in many countries.] 

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. 

SHIFTING THE FOCUS FROM THAT WHICH DOES NOT WORK TO THAT WHICH DOES, Part One


A "movement" or "shift" happened here that added another parallel to the many parallels in terms of the phenomenal "experiences" and the noumenal revelations that "Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj" and "Floyd" share in common. (Many visitors over the years have said that they also shared the same parallels with "Maharaj" and "Floyd" as well.) In the case of "Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj" and "Floyd": 

1. both grew up in very poor families 2. both moved to populated areas to seek employment opportunities 3. both exhibited business skills that led to their opening and operating many businesses and to their having a large number of employees working for them 4. both succeeded financially 5. both became attached to accumulating; 6. both married and had a family 7. both were initially religious 8. both moved away from organized religion and became interested in "spiritual" matters, finding and following the teachings of a big name teacher (or, in "Floyd's" case, many big name teachers) 9. both had highly religious wives who were quite displeased with the shift away from religion and toward "spirituality" 10. both began to feel empty in spite of all of their "spiritual seeking" and in spite of all of their accumulated "spiritual knowledge"; 
 

11. both began to de-accumulate after both saw that they could survive quite well on a fraction of the income they had been making 12. both had wives who were unhappy when the de-accumulation stage was entered and both had wives who became unhappy about their husbands' focus on non-duality and who blamed their unhappiness on no longer having a religious husband (The facts be known, in both cases the unhappiness involved the fact that their husbands were no longer interested in - or willing - to work 80+ hours per week and that their husbands were no longer interested in accumulating wealth and possessions and providing the rich lifestyle to which their wives had grown accustomed) 

13. both eventually came to see that the religious and spiritual states were also ego-states, and both saw that there are far more steps on the "path" to complete after reaching the religious and spiritual steps and after playing those roles which are the third of seven steps on the entire "path" 14. both "lost" their wives (one via "death," the other through divorce); 15. both accelerated their seeking; 16. both entered into the "forest dweller stage" 17. both Realized 18. both began to de-accumulate even more 

19. both began sharing the teachings 20. for years, both answered questions in whatever order those questions were received, though both said that the movement from identification with the false "I" / "I's" involved an exact, step-wise manner of moving along a "path" that involved "going back" in the same (but reverse order) of the way they "came in" - that is, the way that the manifestation happened and the way that the consciousness was blocked through seven stages that resulted in their becoming identified solely with their false personas, with the content of the "mind," and eventually, with the body. But the most significant awareness that finally came to both after years of offering satsang and after having answered thousands and thousands of questions was this: After years of "Maharaj" offering satsang in his loft, and after years of "Floyd" offering satsang in meeting halls and in his home and via what one site visitor called "Floyd's electronic loft," this fact became obvious to both: "Maharaj" came to see in the 1970's and into 1980 and 1981 that his approach was not working and "Floyd" finally came to see the same.


21. Both saw that many who heard the teachings are not going to understand (Maharaj reporting that "only 1 in 100,000 are going to 'get' this" understanding) 22. both soon saw that even more than expected of those who heard the teachings were not going to understand (Maharaj modifying his "guesstimate" and reporting that "only 1 in 1,000,000 are going to 'get' this" understanding) 23. eventually both saw that even far more than expected of those who heard the teachings were not going to understand (Maharaj eventually concluding that "only 1 in 10,000,000 are going to 'get' this" understanding). And the failings were not the fault of seekers. A "one -in-ten-million" estimate is proof that satsang was not working for most seekers, and the evidence here lately is proof of the same.


Both "Maharaj" and "Floyd" invited seekers to focus on the exact, step-wise "path." Yes, during satsang, "Maharaj" sometimes alluded to the steps while discussing them in no particular order - but he never once laid out the steps in the exact order in which they had to be completed. That was not his teachings style or approach.

Therefore, another movement or shift is happening here spontaneously after reflecting on the more than two decades since the teachings were first offered here and looking at the results of Maharaj sharing pointers in his loft and looking at the results of "Floyd" sharing pointers in this electronic loft: Looking objectively at his results, Maharaj's satsang method of sharing - in the end and by his own admission (only "one out of 10,000,000") - did not produce the intended outcome.


Looking objectively at the results here when using an "electronic loft" satsang method of sharing has not produced the intended outcome nearly as often as any of the three "face-to-face" methods used with seekers by which they have been led through the seven steps in order. Here, the body is growing older, of course. Mahasamadhi could be taken today, or it could be taken in twenty years.


Obviously, that cannot be known. But the decision here has been made that whatever amount of the relative existence remains shall be spent in sharing the teachings in the ways that have been seen over the last 20+ years to be the most effective methods.

Looking back over the list of those that have truly received the understanding, it is seen that Robert R. read all of the books, then took the online Advaita course and then completed some face-to-face Skype sessions to receive the final clarifications required. It was seen that Mac read all of the books, completed the online course, and then attended a retreat where he was guided through the seven steps. Mac said that the online course work inspired him to attend the retreat in order to be able to receive the final "pieces." It was seen that Andy Gugar, Jr. read all of the books, then came here for a retreat and was taken through the seven steps in order, and then returned once more for the final clarifications required. After reviewing the shifts that happened with him after attending two retreats, he reaffirmed this past week his commitment to helping spread the non-duality, nisarga understanding as presented here. As a result of seeing what has "worked" during the last 20+ years of sharing the non-duality understanding - and seeing what had not "worked" as well - changes will be made. 


SHIFTING THE FOCUS FROM THAT WHICH DOES NOT WORK TO THAT WHICH DOES, Part Two


In "Part One," examples were given of seekers that were led to Realization not by satsang but by following the various protocols outlined farther down this page which provide the understanding in the step-wise, orderly, required fashion which moves seekers along a "path" that is as prescribed by Maharaj ... "going back" in the "reverse order" by which the consciousness manifested and became blocked.

However, conversations with some that just read the majority of the books have revealed that they certainly seem to have grasped the understanding and Realized as well. As a result of seeing what has "worked" during the last 20+ years of sharing the non-duality understanding - and seeing what has "not worked" as well - changes are being made. There are seven specific steps that happen when awareness-energy is "pulled" into a cycle of manifestation. When that energy manifests as conscious-energy, that formerly pure and unadulterated energy becomes "corrupted" (or "blocked" from seeing clearly) via programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, and brainwashing. Soon, there is a belief in the not-Real as a result of seven degrees of separation from an understanding of the Real. Using the method that was also employed by his contemporaries - a method which focused on offering non-duality pointers via satsang - Maharaj addressed questions in the order in which they were received. He might receive a question from a seeker at the third step and his reply would include what amounted to an invitation to move to the fourth step. The next question might come from a seeker at the first step, and the reply would include an invitation to move to the second step. The information offered to the second seeker would seemingly contradict what was offered to the first seeker, so visitors who have come here for decades have asked questions which showed how confused they were by the fact that Maharaj's statements to each visitor in his loft were "level-appropriate" yet were provided in no precise order, resulting in what seemed to be an inconsistent message. So the process overall was confusing in that seekers were told to follow the "path back" in the same way that they "came in," except in reverse order, but pointers were not given in a specific, step-wise order at all. Maharaj did recognize the seven steps that are taught here, but by offering the teachings in an order that was dictated by the order in which questions were received from seekers who were at different steps on the "path," the result was this: a pointer about moving beyond the fourth step might be followed by a pointer about moving beyond the first step, and that pointer might be followed by a pointer about how to move beyond the sixth step. The same was done on this site for seven years. The result is a collection of 1,800 or so essays discussing almost every non-duality topic that can be discussed, and the search button on the top right side of this page will now allow seekers with a question about a specific topic to find an explanation. That method, however, will never provide the manner in which the seven steps on the "path" must be transmitted and received in order to Realize Fully. An objective study of the history here of more than twenty years of offering non-duality pointers reveals this: seekers that were given pointers in the exact order in which they needed to receive them were the ones that Realized.

They read the books, then they completed the online course and / or completed seven Skype or telephone sessions or came here for a retreat (or watched the downloadable DVD version of an actual retreat, available below).

Some found that which they were seeking by reading the author's book that deal with non-duality subject matter. Via all of those venues, the steps are taught in their proper order. The essays available on this site will remain for those interested in searching for a discussion of a particular non-duality topic without charge, but the focus here until mahasamadhi is taken is going to be on offering the teachings in the step-wise fashion that has been seen to work.

[Please note: When the Direct Path Teaching Method is offered in conjunction with the Nisarga Yoga, something unique results when compared to what happens via the approach used by religions, spiritual movements, philosophies, ideologies, etc.:

rather than inviting seekers to learn more, the invitation here is to unlearn all; rather than offerings teachings, what is offered are unteachings; rather than offering to provide seekers more of anything, seekers will find that the process will take away everything. And via that process, the bliss of Your Original Nature will manifest and remain until mahasamadhi is taken.

To that end, the content of this book will seem radical to the seekers of more, but for those truly ready to be totally free and totally independent - and for those who are truly ready to abandon efforts to accumulate and to de-accumulate instead - the pointers in this book might be relevant.]
