How Many Jobs Do You Have?

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 "job" is defined as "one's occupation" or "the principal activity in your life that you perform to earn money" or "a specific piece of work required to be done for a specific fee." "Employment" is defined as "the occupation for which you are paid."

Most persons earn the money required to pay for their food, clothing, and shelter - and to meet their other responsibilities or obligations - by finding a job, by securing employment. Many develop salable skills and earn compensation by offering those skills to employers.

And, yes, some even sell themselves to people who are willing to buy other people, short-term or long-term. So it is. Those means of acquiring money and lifestyles notwithstanding, billions of others pay for their basic needs by the sale of labor or talents. To that end, some earn money by using their backs to complete their jobs; some earn money by using their brains to complete their jobs.

Of the trillions and trillions of forms-cum-consciousness on this planet, however, it is the human alone that seeks a job (and often two or three jobs) in order to pay for actual needs and also to pay for non-essential accumulations.

Some work a job for forty hours per week; some work one or more jobs for eighty hours per week; and some do all of that and then have the added responsibility of trying to raise one or more children.

And then, on top of all of that, 6.7+ billion - according to surveys conducted internationally - are also performing the job of working for "salvation," are working at worshiping; are employed with trying to please a god or gods; and are occupied with learning dogma and / or spiritual principles.

Each of those billions has accepted a job in addition to her / his basic employment and are now working at studying catechisms and working at learning all of the words in books that are purportedly "holy" so that they can quote those words to others.

In the non-duality fictional novel THE TWICE-STOLEN NECKLACE MURDERS, "floyd's" exhausting "second job" involving racing about on diversionary paths and engaging in directionless wanderings, described thusly:

He was "dipped, dunked, sprinkled, blessed, cursed, cussed, lectured, scolded, praised, communion’d, Om’d, grape-juiced, wined, ahsram’d, accepted, rejected, Mu’d, and yoga’d, baptized, Buddha’d, New Aged, powwow’d, Far Eastern Indianized, incense’d, sage’d, Tao’d, Peru’d, Tibet’d, washed in the blood, dunked in the waters, and purportedly purified."

After working a primary job for forty to sixty hours per week, almost as much time and effort was spent with that second job. Witness the result of such occupation and preoccupation:

Humans that once awoke naturally in the mornings now awake in unnatural ways at unnatural times. Humans that once strolled about in peace now race about in crisis. Humans that once experienced a sense of peace by sitting in the quiet and watching a sunset now try to reach that peaceful state by all sorts of activities and practices and rituals and exercises.

This, their second or third or fourth job, now requires them to engage in humming, chanting, singing, reciting, kneeling, genuflecting, and / or kissing holy rings; making pilgrimages to “holy” shrines and “holy” lands; praying to imaginary powers in other realms; talking to—and listening to—human-like but invisible superpowers; trying to live “spiritually” rather than naturally; burning incense or slinging water droplets;

placing special bowls on special pillows and striking the special bowls with special sticks; collecting precious stones and artifacts and accoutrements; sacrificing time and valuables to imaginary powers or for “good and noble” causes; listening to arrogant, hypocritical men who dress in elaborate costumes and pointy hats and shiny red shoes; assuming roles and playing those roles in special “holy” buildings erected on “consecrated ground,” ad infinitum.

Such persons truly believe that they are going to be paid for such employment, not only now but also for eternity. As one Advaitin poet said, "What fools these mortals be."

This pointer has been offered in the past: if the normal (meaning, “unprogrammed and sane”) humans who had lived in a normal (meaning "unconditioned and unenculturated") fashion for millions of years could witness what is now-typical human behavior, those earlier humans would know that they were watching the most outrageously absurd show in the history of this planet. Such is now the case ... and a very tiring case it is.

Conversely, Maharaj taught:

"Whatever spiritual things you aspire to know are all happening in this objective world, in the illusion. All this is happening in the objective world. All is dishonesty. There is no truth in this fraud."

"There is no question of elevating to a higher level. Here it is only a question of understanding."

“When the birth is disproved, the great noble meaning of spirituality and the meaning of this world—everything—is disproved.”

“I have no faith in anything which has ever been told, not even what has been told by the Vedas. Only my own experience.”

How many jobs do you have? Are you tired? If you are not tired - if you are not truly exhausted with all of that extra work required of your extra job - then the readiness to complete the short "journey" to Realization has not yet manifested.

If you are truly tired of the toils and tolls of your extra employment, then the readiness might be there. If that is the case, then You are invited to follow the seven-step "path" to Realization, to freedom, to peace and to an unending vacation from making a job of life.

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."

Abiding As Your Original Nature

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.: [An excerpt from the book, "A Series of Essays Discussing THE SEVENTH STEP on the Path to Realization," to be released next week on Amazon.com and Amazon UK]

After completion of the seven-step "journey" from identification with the false "I" to Reality, abidance happens for the remainder of the manifestation as Your original nature.

What was Your original nature? What was Your original state, prior to a speck of consciousness manifesting and becoming blocked (leading to the Ultimate Sickness, and requiring the Ultimate Medicine to unblock the consciousness, a process that "works" only when the medicine is administered in the exact steps that can allow Full Realization to happen)?

That state was nameless and is nameless, but for the sake of discussion, call it the state of "Awareness," a pool of specialized energy that cannot be aware of anything if not manifested but that has the capacity to manifest as consciousness that can - temporarily - be conscious of. As far as this universe is concerned, that state of specialized energy "at rest" is primeval ... is primordial ... is the original state.

While energy-as-awareness has no aware-of-ness, if a quantity of that energy manifests, then it does have the property of conscious-of-ness, so the original nature of the manifest consciousness is to know nothing. Yet the consciousness can trigger among the Realized a movement in awareness.

See, therefore, that the Awareness State is a state of non-duality and that the consciousness state is a state of duality.

Maharaj: "Consciousness is on contact, a reflection against a surface, a state of duality. There can be no consciousness without awareness, but there can be awareness without consciousness, as in deep sleep."

"Awareness is absolute, consciousness is relative to its content; consciousness is always of something" (a property referred to here as "conscious-of-ness"). "Consciousness is partial and changeful, awareness is total, changeless, calm and silent."

If abidance is not happening as Your original nature - Your original state - then it will be happening in a dualistic manner. The relative existence, then, will be plagued not only by a sense of partiality rather than wholeness but also by changefulness rather than stability.

If abidance is happening as Your original nature - Your original state - then it will be happening in a non-dualistic manner. The relative existence, then, will be marked by a sense of wholeness, changelessness, calm, and silence.

If Realization happens, then the relative existence will also unfold in a natural manner, as opposed to an unnatural manner or a supposedly supernatural manner (where magical thinking results in the unquestioned belief in "Extraterrestrial, Extraordinary Causers" of events which are actually rooted in totally ordinary, natural causes).

Efforts to live in a supernatural way reinforce duality by cataloguing lists of what is "good" and what is "bad" and what is required ...

1) to please a dreamed up other-worldly Power (or Powers) who supposedly control all people and places and things and events on this planet, such effort to please intended ...

2) to guarantee rewards now and forever and to avoid punishment now and forever.

As a result of such dualistic beliefs, the relative existence will be deprived of any chance to unfold in a natural, changeless, calm, and silent manner; instead, it will become a job unto itself, depriving non-Realized persons of the opportunity to be free and at peace.

Post-Realization, the remainder of the manifestation will happen as if there is no consciousness, allowing the Realized to abide in the same type of peace that the non-Realized only experience while in deep sleep.

Maharaj: "There can be no consciousness without awareness, but there can be awareness without consciousness, as in deep sleep."

When Reality is overlaid on the relative, and when awareness is overlaid upon the consciousness, the result will be an existence that is marked by freedom, peace, Real Love, and bliss.

Maharaj: "Since it is awareness that makes consciousness possible, there is awareness in every state of consciousness. Therefore the very consciousness of being conscious is already a movement in awareness. Interest in your stream of consciousness takes you to awareness. It is not a new state. It is at once recognised as the original, basic existence, which is life itself, and also love and joy."

Yet joy cannot manifest when the relative existence is turned into a job unto itself. While non-Realized persons believe that every other living thing on the planet is watched over and taken care of and can do just fine without believing and worshiping and working and worrying and straining to please and trying to be supernatural and trying to be "different from" and "better than," non-Realized persons can be programmed and conditioned to believe that the same "care" (or "unconditional love") is not offered to humans without expectations.

They will believe that humans alone on the planet are the forms that must "earn" whatever they might receive from extraterrestrial power(s) and who must spend the entire existence engaged in activities and practices and exercises in order to "live supernaturally" in order to attain rewards (as opposed to merely abiding naturally ... freely ... peacefully").

The result: persons driven by their supernatural concepts become the only forms on the planet that live unnaturally. The Nisargan offers the invitation to set aside all effort, to end all of the needless work, and to live naturally rather than unnaturally or "supernaturally."

Therefore, the salutation to You and to you (to the I AM THAT and the I AM) is:

"May You find freedom, independence, joy, peace, light, and Love."

IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY DO-ER, THE ONLY THING THAT CAN HAPPEN (FOR A LIMITED TIME) IS WITNESSING

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.

FROM A VISITOR: "Learned BS at every turn. What to do?"

F.: The reply: "Witness."

Most on the planet will be driven by learned BS at every turn, will be preoccupied with learned BS at every turn, and will be imprisoned by learned BS from the age of two to the end of the manifestation, yet they will never even know that it's all learned BS at play.

Only a very few will wake up enough to recognize, finally, that there is "learned BS at every turn." No argument there.

As for "What to do?" If the composite unity is understood, then the relevant questions would be:

"Can the elements do anything about the learned BS?" No.

"Can the breath do anything about the learned BS?" No.

"Can the conscious-energy do anything about the learned BS?" No.

The consciousness has no arms and hands that could be used to choke out the learned BS; the consciousness has no legs that could be used to run away from learned BS; and the consciousness has no mind that can be used to analyze and figure out the learned BS.

The argument turns again to the question asked here frequently, "Why are you fighting with the garbage collector over a bag of rancid trash? Look how he is tugging on one end of the bag, trying to pry it from your grasp so you can be rid of it once and for all. And look at all the effort you are exerting, hanging onto the other end of the bag, trying to take it back."

So much for all the talk about "My Noble Guru," "My Famous Teacher," "My Most Exalted Guide," or "My Holy Leader." If they are actually doing their job, they are just garbage collectors, taking out the trash and throwing it away once and for all.

So the question in the end is no different from this scenario:

[Telephone rings]

"Hello, floyd?"


"Yes."

"My husband and I are driving along a hot stretch of Arizona highway."

"OK."

"And there is a mirage up ahead."

"OK."

"Actually, we have been seeing them all day. They are at every turn."

"OK."

"So the question is this: 'Mirages at every turn. What to do?'"

"WHO thinks she needs to do anything about mirages?"

"Oh."

"You can witness them for now, but eventually you'll pay no heed. Having seen that they are everywhere, the understanding will come that 'You know, they really are everywhere, aren't they?' And then, You'll eventually pay no heed to them at all. Goodbye." [Click]

Maharaj: "What does witness mean? Mere knowledge. It rained and now the rain is over. I did not get wet. I know it rained, but I am not affected. I just witnessed the rain."

"I am not affected. I just witnessed ...."

Yet the pointer offered above said that eventually, even the witnessing will end. Why?

Maharaj: "For witnessing, there must be something else to witness. We are still in duality!"

"But floyd, don't I witness the mirages?"

F.: No. That would be tantamount to saying,

"I am really disgusted by the flavor left in my mouth by this sour milk that I have not tasted."

F.: Really?

Or, "I truly hate the child of that barren woman."

F.: Really? Rather senseless - maybe even a little insane - both of those beliefs would be, yes?

Maharaj: "Witnessing is an experience and rest is freedom from experience."

F.: And the most restful rest of all is freedom from the imagined experiencer as well.

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.Q. vs. R.Q.

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.

FROM A SITE VISITOR: All these negative comments about knowledge and learning and mind make no sense to me. Seems you have to be somewhat intelligent to understand what you're talking about.

F.: First, there are no comments that are negative or positive. There are pointers toward the false, followed by pointers toward the Truth.

Here's a current example of what is happening with four seekers that have just completed the seven advaita sessions on Skype or that will soon be completing the discussions of the seven steps on the "path" to Realization.

All four are quite intelligent. All four have been "gatherers" for decades, collecting knowledge (what Maharaj also called "learned ignorance") and building large libraries of books that were read once and then put on display. For ... ? You guess.

Now, all four are spontaneously de-accumulating. After what is probably a combined total of 120 years of seeking and gathering and accumulating spiritual knowledge and spiritual practices and spiritual books, there has been a spontaneous outbreak among them all to toss it all.

They are cleaning house after having cleaned house; that is, after cleaning out the "house" in which the consciousness presently abides, they are all cleaning out the houses where the bodies-cum-consciousness presently abide.

They were not told to do that; they were not asked to do that; no suggestion was made for them to do that. It is happening automatically and spontaneously among them all. As the steps have moved these seekers farther along a "path" to simplicity, the changes in their external environments have begun to reflect the changes in their "internal environments":

Garbage out of "Locale 'A'?" Yes. Shortly thereafter, garbage out of "Locale 'B'." That's just the way it happens.

So 120 years or more of being intelligent and collecting knowledge availed them nothing. (Okay, granted, it might be that the profitless exhaustion did contribute to the readiness.) But now, a few hours of following the "path" in the way that the "path" has to be followed in order for Realization to begin happening has done, or is doing, what all of the work and effort and toil and angst did not do.

Yes, the ignorant will stay ignorant; yes, the intelligent can stay in ignorance as well; but when the intelligent begin to hear pointers toward the Truth, begin to feel the inner guru or inner resource resonating in response, and suddenly grasp firmly what was always within but never completely grasped, then intellect and knowledge fall away and natural abidance begins.

Their I.Q.'s were high enough. The problem was that their R.Q.'s - their Reality Quotients - were low, but not nearly as low as the R.Q.'s of two other men who made contact here this week.

Neither of them will "get this" the way those four seekers have recently. Why? Both men think they know some things and both think they are pretty clever; both think they can fool everyone with their words; yet neither are ready because they are still dedicated to putting a spin on the facts regarding their present circumstances.

Both are such Masters of Spin and Distortion that even when the facts are laid out before their very eyes - and even when they are able to glimpse some of those facts momentarily - they soon apply the spin and twist the facts to indulge their self-images and turn their backs toward Truth.

And even those two men are not ignorant; however spin and distortion can easily trump pointers to Truth, and the Realms of the Mind around the globe are ruled by many such Kings of Spin, are doctored up by Doctors of Facts, and are manipulated by the preponderance of these two types who are Masters of Self-Deception.

Therefore, I.Q.'s are less a factor than R.Q.'s when it comes to accepting the fact that the Ultimate Sickness is manifest and that only the Ultimate Medicine can treat the illness. No matter how high the I.Q., though, when the R.Q. is as low as it is among the masses, the shift to Reality will seldom happen. So Maharaj noted; so it is.
