F.: Yesterday’s post ended with this:

“…it will be shown that there has been a history of persons who want more than conscious contact with a god or gods. There is, in fact, a long history of persons who have claimed that they have transcended the dualistic, subject-object arrangement of conscious contact with god and have actually become at one with God and are therefore gods as well.”

Persons will never be able to live in the nisarga fashion if they want to live in a supernatural fashion. No persons can ever live in the nisarga fashion if they have a belief that there is some external, supernatural power that they can align with, tap into, or—as some believe—become.

Persons can never live in the nisarga fashion if they are trapped in ego-states that are supported by egotism. Persons can never live in the nisarga fashion if they are driven to have power or if they think dualistically that they can be at one with some supernatural power. "At one" is non-duality; "with" is duality.

Is it understood that the very notion that “A” can be at one with “B” is duality? Is it understood that persons cannot live in the nisarga fashion if they believe the notion that “I am not ‘at one with’ the power but believe instead that I am actually that power (or supernatural being)”?

If there is even one ego-state that a person is clinging to, then egotism is supporting the false beliefs that (A) the person is real; that (B) the persona has legitimate, reality-based desires that need to be met; that (C) the person can attain the power and control required to bring about all that it desires; that (D) it can tap into some external, outer power that exists to control all and to bring about every desire a person has; and that (E) the persona is “at-one” with God, thus being—for all practical purposes—God.

All fear and desire is rooted in one or more false ego-states. To want is to be in delusion, requiring the belief that a false self with a desire is real; furthermore, it does not matter if the want is what your culture says is a “bad” desire (e.g., wanting your neighbor’s wife),

or if the want is what your culture says is a “good” desire (e.g., wanting to be at one with god, in conscious contact with god, being god…whatever). As always, look not to "the one you think has attained the level of spirituality that you want" for your model. Look instead to the no-religion-at-all-and-the-no-spirituality-at-all-deer for your model if you would live in a nisarga fashion.

The deer is not focused on seeking anything or being at one with anything. It is not seeking to connect with some external power to gain control. It has no desire, not even a desire to eat grass. The eating of grass happens spontaneously, without plan.

You will never live naturally if you "want what Maharaj had," if you “want what floyd has,” if you “want what your guru has,” or if you “want what anyone whom you are idolizing has.” You will never live naturally if you believe that there is a god (or gods) in other worlds that are controlling what is happening in this world.

You will never live naturally if you believe that you can be at one with something else (since that is a dualistic belief) and you can never live naturally if you assume any identity, including “I am that which is at one with god / with the god force / with the god head / with the personal power of the universe.”

The ultimate Realization that can free you to live in the nisarga fashion without fluctuation is this:

Every pagan religion (a.k.a., “all current religions”) as well as every cult, sect, ideology, creed, dogma, doctrine, spiritual movement, and spiritual philosophy has at its core the notion that humans can be “at one” with god. From that comes desiring, and from desiring comes misery and fluctuation.

When believing that one's desires are being met, happiness happens; when seeing that the desires are never met consistently, misery happens. Yet the masses are trapped in personality, so notions about god and god's power and at-one-ment and godliness and being god set the stage for the manifestation of the personality disorders that most professionals claim are the most difficult to treat:

1. The Narcissistic Personality Disorder (tantamount to The God Complex Personality Disorder), and

2. The Sociopath Personality Disorder.

Both disorders produce the belief that “I am the greatest, the ultimate. My desires trump the desires of all others,” and both disorders result in persons being unstable...constantly in a state of flux...never consistently being treated in the fashion desired and never able to sustain control on a continuing basis.

Thus, the narcissist is always in a state of fluctuation...happy when able to manipulate others and when able to receive the levels of respect and attention and adulation and positive feedback that ego desires but unhappy when persons do not consistently provide those levels of respect and attention and adulation and positive feedback that the narcissist desires.

And the sociopath is always in a state of fluctuation...happy when able to control and intimidate others but unhappy when persons do not consistently follow orders and meet the (totally unreasonable) demands and expectations as set forth by one living in the ego-state of "The Boss" or "The Controller" or "The One Who Should Have the Ultimate Say in All Matters."

Those two personality disorders, which account for much of the sense of separation on the planet as well as the arrogance and fighting and killing and wars, are both rooted in an "I am god" mentality.

Among those trapped at the third of the seven steps in the movement from (a) identification with the false “I” to (b) understanding the Absolute and all beyond, it is a short step from believing that “I am godly” to “I am at one with god” to “I am god.”

Once the "I am god" belief manifests, then persons believe that they are entitled to all of the rights and privileges of a god, including being worshiped by everyone and worshiped with "body, heart, mind, and soul." And that is the case in spite of any claim to "god-inspired humility."

Historically, it has been organized religions, cults, sects, ideologies, creeds, dogma, doctrines, spiritual movements, and spiritual philosophies that have encouraged and supported the "I am god and you are god"-type grandiosity.

To take the short step from “I am at one with god” to “ergo, I am god” is to assume another false identity. When Realization happens via the Nisarga Yoga, all identity assumption ends.

How disgusting it must sound to visitors to this site who are trapped in grandiosity, who have adopted another false but supposedly divine identity, and who read, “You are nothing, and knowing that is wisdom.” Yet the fact is this: any seeker seeking "something" will never be stabilized in a contented state.

To the contrary, it is only the seeker that seeks nothing and finds the nothingness that can stabilize in the natural, original state. All others will be in a constant state of fluctuation and instability. Please enter the silence of contemplation. (To be continued)

SIX WAYS THAT SEEKERS HAVE REALIZED:

1. BY WATCHING the 4-Disk Video (DVD) Set, or the same retreat available as a downloadable file. Either will provide an entire seven-hour retreat / series of satsang sessions showing three seekers being guided through all seven steps by Floyd and can provide viewers with an “experiential,” step-by-step series of satsang meetings that will move the viewers from identification with the I to abidance as the Absolute and then to abidance as That Which Is beyond

Some seekers are already using the computer file version and the DVD sets for meetings in groups in homes, playing the retreat, pausing for discussion, etc.

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.
