REACTIONS TO YESTERDAY'S POST

An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Nothingness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Here, there is nothing that is believed, so there is no one here who wants you to believe anything, either. Here, the invitation is to be free of all that you have been programmed, conditioned, acculturated, and domesticated to believe so that you can be free, period.

Furthermore, for those who have developed a preference for any non-nisargan yoga or who prefer Traditional Advaita Vedanta, Neo-Advaita, Neo-Vedanta, or Pseudo Advaita: here you will only find the use of the Direct Path Method of teaching along with the Nisarga (Natural) Yoga, all shared in simple, everyday English.

NOTE: To answer some enquiries, yes, Louise Sterling will soon be posting again.

F.: As expected, there were some reactions to yesterday's post. One of the less dramatic came from a man who claimed that the pointers "at first shattered the foundations" of the understanding that he had built over the years of study, namely that "he is Consciousness and that Consciousness is all there is." Soon, though, the foundation began rebuilding as he questioned the content of the entire post.

The reply: "First, congratulations for questioning. Secondly, the notion that you are the Consciousness is an appropriate conclusion to be drawn along the 'path,' but that belief - and it is a belief - simply will not survive the entire 'journey' any more than any other beliefs."

For further consideration of the subject, or not, here is what Maharaj said: "Give up all you have read and heard and just BE. You, as the Absolute, are not this 'I Amness', but presently you have to abide in 'I Amness'."

Even later on the "path," he said, you can abide as the Absolute but still the Amness continues for the length of the manifestation. Thus the pointer that Reality can be overlaid on the relative and thus the summative statement of Advaita: "I AM THAT; I AM."

Jean Dunn, a protégé of Maharaj's, said: "Abiding in the 'I Amness' (or Consciousness, which is Pure Love), that Consciousness itself will give us all the answers. At the present time, Consciousness is what we are - not personal Consciousness, but impersonal, universal Consciousness. In course of time, the Consciousness will show us that we are not even this, but we are that Eternal Absolute, unborn, undying."

For those that have no interest in further investigation beyond the Absolute and no interest in understanding the no-identity Nothingness, so it is.

With some, abidance as the Absolute still brings along some ideas about identity (and even about some "Noble Identity"), but if the abidance as the Absolute happens in its purest, identity-less mode, then the subsequent no-aware-of-ness will suffice and allow Pure Witnessing only to happen for the remainder of the manifestation (which will also lead to freedom and then peace).

Then, Maharaj's pointer in this regard will make perfect sense:

"A jñani is aware of the origin and the value of consciousness, this beingness, which has spontaneously dawned upon him. This same consciousness plays a multitude of roles, some happy, some unhappy; but whatever the roles, the jñani is merely the seer of them. The roles have no effect on the jñani."

As for yesterday's pointers, consider this from that speck called Maharaj:

"Consciousness depends upon the body; the body depends on the essence of food. It is the Consciousness which is speaking now. If the food-essence is not present, the body cannot exist. Without the body, would I be able to speak?"

Understand the interactions among the three components of the composite unity - including the temporarily manifested consciousness and the elemental plant food body and the food-essence - and yesterday's pointers will also be understood.

Please enter the silence of contemplation.

The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders offers the non-duality message by way of a mystery-adventure novel, discussing the movement from pain to healing to awakening to peace.
From Dr. R.F. Maley, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus and former Head of the Department of Psychology, University of Houston: "Floyd Henderson's book, The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders, is a fun read and an interesting mystery, but perhaps more importantly it serves as a vehicle for blending Eastern Philosophy and Native American Spirituality to make an intellectually challenging novel. The book's insights into both relationships and authoritarian conditioning of people in our society make it a must read, tracing the roots of narcissistic, sociopathic and psychopathic behaviors to the very core of the culture. This truly witty and politically-incorrect study of the aggressive nature of 'the American character' offers not only a diagnosis but also a treatment plan, making the book an excellent supplemental reading in courses such as psychology, anthropology, philosophy, sociology and counseling."

"I AM THE CONSCIOUSNESS": Another Statement That Is Not A Fact, in the End

An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Nothingness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Here, there is nothing that is believed, so there is no one here who wants you to believe anything, either. Here, the invitation is to be free of all that you have been programmed, conditioned, acculturated, and domesticated to believe so that you can be free, period.

Furthermore, for those who have developed a preference for any non-nisargan yoga or who prefer Traditional Advaita Vedanta, Neo-Advaita, Neo-Vedanta, or Pseudo Advaita: here you will only find the use of the Direct Path Method of teaching along with the Nisarga (Natural) Yoga, all shared in simple, everyday English.

NOTE: To answer some enquiries, yes, Louise Sterling will soon be posting again.

F.: If the Advaitin pointer is accurate when it is said that (A) "The Truth can be known but cannot be stated," then the statement (B) "I Am the Consciousness" cannot be an expression of truth, either. How few see the way that point "A" will eventually negate every "B," will negate everything that has been said, is being said, or will be said.

Just another "maverick pointer" to be dismissed as far as some will be concerned, yes? So let it be noted that statements can serve as thorns that are used to remove thorns, but in the end, no words can be used to "pin down" or "pen in" the Truth that is knowable but un-stateable.

Yes, it has been shared for some who are at certain steps on "the path back out" that it is the consciousness that can know "itself" / "ItSelf"; and, yes, if the personal pronoun "I" is used, then do let it refer only to the consciousness;

however, the consciousness can know nothing if it is not manifested in something (hence, Maharaj's term, "body-cum-consciousness"). Nor can the consciousness ever be "personal," so any statement using the first-person, singular, nominative case, personal pronoun "I" is, in itself, a "dis-affirming" statement.

Nor can the consciousness ever "stand alone" and know. That "stand alone state" is closer to the pre-manifestation condition of "consciousness," when it is actually just energy with the potential to manifest and know, when it is actually awareness that is not manifested in anything, and when said awareness is not aware of anything (including itself).

In fact, the consciousness does not exist as consciousness unless manifested, the awareness having no conscious-of-ness at all; furthermore - and contrary to some teachings - the manifested state is not limited to "consciousness only" because there must be a composite unity "at work" for the consciousness to manifest and to know.

Consider: Is "an acorn" as much a composite unity as "a human"? Not only is that the case, but the acorn and the human are the one, exact same "thing," different in appearance only as a result of their differing vibrational rates.

Is the acorn elemental? Yes. Does the acorn require oxygen for the acorn to develop into what is called "an oak" or, eventually, into what is called "a forest"? Yes.

Yet note: the conscious-energy - which allows the acorn to "know" what must happen in order for it to develop spontaneously into an oak - has no awareness of a self (much less a Self, Supreme Self, Infinite Self, or any other prestigious identity). It has no awareness of its potential to be "an oak." The entire process just happens.

While everything on this planet is a composite unity in one way or the other, only among persons who have been mislead is there any asking of the question, "Who or What am I, really?" All else on the planet merely functions spontaneously except for the only composite unity that can be confused because of the lies that are circulated by other non-Realized persons.

Only among humans can it be said for a time that there is a knower (the unblocked consciousness) and knowing and that which is known. In the end, though, the Realized will abide as the awareness instead of as the consciousness, and among those seekers that transition even beyond that state, abidance can happen as the Nothingness until eventually even that concept - and it is a concept - can be transitioned.

Then abidance will happen without any distracting thoughts such as "I am this" or "I am that" or "I am neti-neti" or "I am the Void" and even without having to focus on the "I Am" alone.

Then abidance will not be marked by that which is unnatural or by that which is supernatural but will happen in as natural a fashion as all else on the planet. That is what freedom looks like, and freedom is the prerequisite for peace.

The deer grazing outside this morning are not "deep and profound and philosophical creatures" and they are not "religious and / or spiritual" or "highly moral, elevated creatures."

They are not thinking "I am the consciousness ... I am the consciousness." They are not thinking "I am" ... "I am." Abiding in a nisarga fashion, they are not thinking anything, and that is why they are more peaceful than most humans will ever be, especially those humans trying to live in an unnatural, supernatural fashion.

THE ADVAITIN TEACHINGS: Ironies and Level-Appropriate Pointers, But No Contradictions, Part Eight, The Conclusion

An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Nothingness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Here, there is nothing that is believed, so there is no one here who wants you to believe anything, either. Here, the invitation is to be free of all that you have been programmed, conditioned, acculturated, and domesticated to believe so that you can be free, period.

Furthermore, for those who have developed a preference for any non-nisargan yoga or who prefer Traditional Advaita Vedanta, Neo-Advaita, Neo-Vedanta, or Pseudo Advaita: here you will only find the use of the Direct Path Method of teaching along with the Nisarga (Natural) Yoga, all shared in simple, everyday English.

F.: A discussion of Advaitin pointers that some take to be contradictory but that are actually just level-appropriate can also include:

"Once the disciple has understood, the confirming action is up to him" vs. "Do nothing ... there is no do-er."

The teacher offers the pointers. It is up to the seeker to take those pointers into consideration, to drive them deeper and deeper into that "internal disposal" (disposer-of-all) which is known as the inner guru, and to allow that resource to grind all falsehoods into pulp so that an awareness of Truth can be seen after all of those blockages are removed.

To that extent, such doingness as "taking," "considering," "driving," "disposing," "allowing," "grinding," and "seeing" are required. In the end, though, it is realized that there is no do-er at all and no "one" to engage in such doingness.

Now, back to one of the better known statements of duality that describes what the relative existence is like - and what it will remain like - for the non-Realized:

It was written that "for everything there is a season," including "a time to build up and a time to break down; a time to gather up and a time to cast away; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to speak and a time to keep silence; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace."

All such duality is inescapable when the consciousness manifests, for the consciousness is the instrument on which the tunes of duality are played. Yet Maharaj made clear that he was not even "the consciousness which is dual and perceivable." He said, "I am the unknown Reality beyond."

The "there is a season" passage states exactly the kind of duality that comes with the manifestation of consciousness and that will continue for as long as the consciousness continues to manifest unless Full Realization happens and unless that which is beyond the consciousness is understood.

As one who was in the loft explained:

"The various opposites in dualism - as in noumenon and phenomena, the Absolute and the relative, and the presence and absence - are represented in the mind (consciousness). These are the basis of all manifestation - the observer and the observed, the knower and the known. When one can perceive the basic identity of the opposites it could also mean liberation for the individual, as he now knows that ‘the seeker is the sought’. These opposites exist only in duality. With this knowledge the opposites would erase one another, i.e. duality is annihilated leaving the witness in unity."

It was shown earlier in this series that - as a result of the now-universal affinity to program, condition, acculturate and domesticate the young - there is no chance of their escaping the experiences of duality for a time (or, for most, an entire manifestation).

Once the sense of a separate, personal, individuated self manifests around the age of two - followed by years of programming, conditioning, acculturation and domestication which support that false belief - the die is cast.

It was explained also that there is "a time to build up and a time to break down," which especially applies to what happens to the plant food body from conception to mahasamadhi.

And it was explained that there is "a time to gather up and a time to cast away." Knowledge will be gathered up, and identities will be gathered up - all part of the survival game that must be played if food, clothing and shelter requirements are to be met.

At some point though, with only the very few, a different kind of knowledge will be gathered, the type that eliminates ignorance rather than the type that contributes to the mass of accumulated ignorance that is stored in the fiction-filled, totally-delusional "mind."

When that different kind of knowledge eradicates ("casts away") the entire mass of accumulated ignorance, then even knowledge is no longer required and, in fact, will not be welcomed or accepted at all.

As for "a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing," that time marks the relative but can eventually unravel along the "path" as all that was embraced - all roles, identities, beliefs, concepts, ideas, attitudes, "values" and judgments - are embraced no longer.

Finally, there is in the relative - and at a point along the "path" - "a time of war, and a time of peace."

While it involves jousting with windmills at its core, the war with the ego can seem very real. Every ego-state comes with its own set of built-in ego-defense mechanisms ... its own protective army. When the defenses are triggered, they will lead to the assumption of an offensive, even warlike, stance.

Challenge the role of "The Husband" by saying "I'm leaving you" and see if the resultant thoughts and words and deeds seem peace-like or war-like. Study the statistics and see how many murders occur annually because an ego-state was challenged.

Expand the study to include "personal relations," "national relations," and "international relations" and see the ego / war linkage. Then revisit the "there is a season" description of the dualistic, relative existence, know that such instability cannot be avoided except via Realization, and see why the Realized teacher from 2000 years ago said that "a dual-minded person is unstable in all ways." Trapped in "the seasons of duality," no stability at all can manifest; however, chaos most certainly can.

A reading of pointers that are offered with no explanation about why one seeker is hearing "this" while another seeker is hearing "that which seems contradictory" will - granted - seem confusing.

No single, particular style of teaching will suit everyone. With Maharaj, expect to hear metaphorical or parable-like or even Socratic-like pointers ... often delivered in an electric or curt or intense manner. His style was intended to allow the seeker to hear pointers, to take them into consideration, and to find her / his own way back to the inner guru or inner resource. The "confirming action," as far as Maharaj was concerned, is the singular responsibility of the seeker.

Today, that which blocks the consciousness from tapping into the inner guru or inner resource is so massive an accumulation of obstacles and obstructions that, here, a more direct method is used when seekers come to retreats or arrange for Advaita sessions via Skype.

Here, pointers are offered to those seekers in a clear-cut fashion that lays out before each - in the exact, step-wise fashion required for movement along the "path" - the level-appropriate pointers that can shift one from identification with the false "I's" to the means by which abidance as the Absolute can happen.

Then, for the fewer still, the directions are offered for the final, "fatal" leap into the Void. Best regards in the search for the Light, for the Truth, for the Absolute, and - in a few cases - for the Nothingness which is beyond not only beingness but which is also beyond the non-beingness as well.

Please enter the silence of contemplation.

I would like to extend deepest appreciation towards you for these teachings that you have offered.

Thank you again for pointing "me" to THAT and the understanding that came as well. Hopeful for future "contact"! Sincerely, Anthony M. W.

The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders offers the non-duality message by way of a mystery-adventure novel, discussing the movement from pain to healing to awakening to peace.
From Dr. R.F. Maley, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus and former Head of the Department of Psychology, University of Houston: "Floyd Henderson's book, The Twice-Stolen Necklace Murders, is a fun read and an interesting mystery, but perhaps more importantly it serves as a vehicle for blending Eastern Philosophy and Native American Spirituality to make an intellectually challenging novel. The book's insights into both relationships and authoritarian conditioning of people in our society make it a must read, tracing the roots of narcissistic, sociopathic and psychopathic behaviors to the very core of the culture. This truly witty and politically-incorrect study of the aggressive nature of 'the American character' offers not only a diagnosis but also a treatment plan, making the book an excellent supplemental reading in courses such as psychology, anthropology, philosophy, sociology and counseling."

THE ADVAITIN TEACHINGS: Ironies and Level-Appropriate Pointers, But No Contradictions, Part Seven

An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Nothingness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Here, there is nothing that is believed, so there is no one here who wants you to believe anything, either. Here, the invitation is to be free of all that you have been programmed, conditioned, acculturated, and domesticated to believe so that you can be free, period.

Furthermore, for those who have developed a preference for any non-nisargan yoga or who prefer Traditional Advaita Vedanta, Neo-Advaita, Neo-Vedanta, or Pseudo Advaita: here you will only find the use of the Direct Path Method of teaching along with the Nisarga (Natural) Yoga, all shared in simple, everyday English.

F.: A discussion of Advaitin pointers that some take to be contradictory but that are actually just level-appropriate can also include:

"I am Subject and Object, and knowing that is Real Love" vs. "Know nothing ... be done with all knowledge"

and

"Find that which you truly are" vs. "Adopt no identity."

Regarding, "I am Subject and Object, and knowing that is Real Love" vs. "Know nothing ... be done with all knowledge," revisit these statements from Maharaj:

"Love is knowing that I am everything; wisdom is knowing that I am nothing." To be nothing is to set the stage for knowing nothing, but knowing nothing can only happen after knowing what you are not, after knowing That Which You Are, and after knowing the void which is even beyond the Absolute and which was prior to the Absolute. Knowing must come before knowing nothing.

As noted yesterday, there is actually no "Subject" AND "Object," so Maharaj was speaking in this case to a seeker who was at the Subject-Object Witnessing stage. With this pointer, Maharaj was attempting to clear the "path" for the shift to the next stage of Pure Witnessing whereby the True Self can see ItSelf and know that, simultaneously, it is seeing All.

If the seeker moves to that level, then the "return trip" - the "going back out" in the exact reverse order of the way "the coming in" happened" - will move the seeker (the consciousness) back to that state where it was before the age of two when the consciousness became obstructed as a result of the manifestation of a sense of self-consciousness.

It was that earliest sense of self-consciousness which eventually led to false-self-identification followed later by the adoption of multiple-self-identities and which also led to an entire relative existence being marked by self-absorption and self-ish-ness and self-aggrandizement and self-promotion and self-love (vs. Self Love) ...

... as well as self-interest and self-indulgence and self-centeredness and self-deception and self-image and self-will and an inflated sense of self-worth and self-seeking rather than Self Seeking and, often - in the end - to self-defeating and self-destructive behavior, reaching the point where the conclusion is drawn that "I cannot live with myself anymore."

That statement actually means, "I (whatever or whoever I am or think I am) cannot live any longer with the false self - or all these false selves - that I have seemingly become." Note the duality as "the speaker" (A) makes reference to "myself" (B).

[Might "the speaker" in that case be a tiny speck of consciousness that became unblocked just enough to be aware of the fact that it is "myself" that is the key source of all of the relative problems being experienced? Is it any wonder that when such high levels of misery are reached that persons try to destroy the "self" to end the suffering, that is, that they are driven to put an end to the body which they are identifying with as opposed to putting an end to belief in the false "self" via awareness of its bogus nature and finding, after that, the True Self?]

Note above all of the multiple (relative) personal defects that come with the blocked consciousness's false sense of self as opposed to the singularity of Selfness that is free of all that is supposedly personal (including defects and personality disorders and even clinically-diagnosable insanity).

Thus, the wisdom of

"Find that which you truly are" vs. "Adopt no identity."

The "journey" does not begin with finding the answer to "Who / What am I?" It does not begin and end with one huge leap from all of the "self stuff" catalogued above to a state of identity-less-ness, either.

The "journey in" was completed in steps, so the "journey out" must be completed in steps, and the earliest steps are about finding out who and what you are NOT; therefore, "find that which you truly are" is a pointer that is appropriate at the third step on the "path" where most of the false ego-states assumed throughout a period of many decades have been abandoned but where the "new and improved and good" identities have been adopted.

As for "adopt no identity," that can only come if the entire seven-step "journey" from the false "I's" to the Absolute has been completed.

Only at that level might the pointer "adopt no identity" be appropriate, for then only might one be willing to consider identifying with the nothingness rather than with a field of energy with no aware-of-ness. If the nothingness is identified with for a time, then eventually there might not be any identification with anything. After that, a state might manifest wherein there is no adopting of any identity at all.
