FROM A SITE VISITOR: If I'm not my body and and am aware of my consciousness even if I lost most of it's parts and I'm becoming conscious that I wasn't created so don't die but i return to the source or the field of consciousness from whence i came after my manifestation-am I conscious of this return? Thanks in advance. Bill

F.: Here's the way the scenario unfolds:

Energy with the capacity TO BE CONSCIOUS OF manifested in a space called “a plant.” The manifesting starts there (and that's why any resulting body is a plant food body). Nowadays, you either eat plants to sustain the manifestation of consciousness or you eat an animal that ate plants.

Your dad and mom ate plants (or plant-eating animals) and some of the plants became cells of various types, including sperm cells and egg cells, respectively. An act of friction began a process whereby a sperm cell-cum-consciousness encountered an egg-cum-consciousness.

Everything that happened during the following nine months happened spontaneously, all driven by consciousness, just as your breathing and digestion happen under the auspices of consciousness with no effort on your part.

Because of the spontaneous nature of consciousness, the sperm and egg cells “knew” what to do with no prodding on the part of your so-called parents. (Your mom didn’t say with a grunting noise, “Don’t bother me…I’m making a baby brain today. Check back with me in twenty-four hours if you want to visit since I’ll only be focusing on making some toes tomorrow.”)

In fact, nothing was “made” or “created.” Plant food-cum-consciousness continued for months to supply the elements and the consciousness required for “bill” to take form. An entire planet became populated in that same, spontaneous fashion.

Similarly, the consciousness manifested in what is called “an acorn” can generate a forest, eventually, with no prodding or guidance. The same happened after persons evolved and generated a mass of people, and no one had to teach anyone anything. Copulation and/or seeding comes naturally. It all happens automatically, whether the subject is “humans,” “acorns,” “birds,” etc.

Before the speck of energy that underwent a process that allowed a space-cum-consciousness to manifest and be called “Bill,” there was no one in the field of energy to be aware of anything. (So much for “sacred contracts.”)

Manifested, You—the consciousness—can be aware of ItSelf, but programming and conditioning and enculturation convinced you that you were many other things: boy, good boy, bad boy, student, husband, low-life drunk, good alcoholic, spiritual man, etc.

As long as the consciousness is manifested—and as long as brain damage is not an issue, then “bill” can do what the literature in that program you joined suggests: he can “cast aside ideas, emotions, and attitudes (beliefs)” and come into contact with—can have an awareness of—“the Great Reality.”

That term does not refer to a three-dimensional god that is "a he or him" by virtue of having male appendages (appendages that he would do what with, exactly? Is it not amazing, the level of illogical nonsense that is accepted without question, once the pure consciousness has been corrupted?)

Yet when persons are programmed (or join some program or church or temple or mosque that re-programs them or reinforces their blind faith) then the questioning of nonsense cannot happen. If it does, you are assured that very stiff penalties will follow any questioning of their concepts.

Thus, blindness rules, and "their" contradictions and inconsistencies better not be questioned if one is looking for “love” and “acceptance,” as most persons are. (The search for "love," which is really a search for many other things that have nothing whatsoever to do with "Love," drives most humans who have never known unconditional love. The closest you will ever come to witnessing True Love manifest will be in the company of the Fully Realized that understand the Oneness. It cannot happen among persons who believe in “separation.”)

The book you have previously studied claims that you can be “rocketed” or “catapulted into the fourth dimension.” Interesting, is it not, that you can supposedly become four-dimensional but the god you are then in contact with is still a three-dimensional male figure?

So yes, you can be conscious of the fact that You will return to the pool of energy, but when the energy is not manifested via some space with a nervous system, that conscious-energy can know nothing. It only maintains the potential to know, which can happen if it should enter into a cycle of manifestation...which is nothing more than chance. Please enter the silence of contemplation. (To be continued)

    Non-Duality Paperback Books on Amazon.com

    Five Free eBooks

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

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

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

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

    II.
    "THE VISION"

    Comments regarding the free eBook entitled “THE VISION”:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    IV.
    Seeking

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

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

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

    V.
    "THE MOST DANGEROUS BELIEF OF ALL"

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

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

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

    This 337-page eBook discusses those issues in detail.
