Today's "DAILY CONSIDERATION" for You

F.: Maharaj warned against using "big name teachers" because - by virtue of the very fact that they are popular among the masses - it is clear that they are offering a message that is tainted by the addition of elements that have popular appeal. 

The evidence of the True Love - which that speck called "Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj" was - rested in the willingness to confront and discuss the facts of the relative existence honestly, any self-based reactions to those facts be damned. And short of Full Realization, all persons will be self-based; all will be self-ish; all will be self-concerned; and all will be driven by the desires and fears and hidden agendas of the false selves assumed, the desires and fears and hidden agendas of the false selves assumed by others be damned. 

Only in the cases here in which Full Realization has been witnessed to happen has all evidence of humanity's far-too-common inhumanity been seen to come to an end. Only then has the absence of preoccupation with self been witnessed, and only in those cases is true agenda-less sharing and true agenda-less caring and true agenda-less altruism being witnessed. 

Knowing what has happened with some seekers, and therefore what can happen for other seekers if the message is honest and direct and frank with all "sugar-coating" having been set aside, there can be no hesitancy about shining the light of Reality on the underbelly of humanity to expose all of the symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness that must be excised. Describing all of the aspects of that process takes longer than usual, so apologies in advance for the length of today's post. 

The seeker is invited to understand (a) what can happen via Realization to put to an end the blockages, the miasma, the fog, the ever-present belief in duality when the consciousness is manifest as well as to understand (b) humanity's underbelly of selfishness and the sometimes dormant and sometimes active sociopathic cruelty that marks the behavior of the non-Realized masses: 

The consciousness itself is the lifeblood of duality with its Subject-Object perspective; ironically, it is also a prerequisite for Realizing and then knowing Awareness, the Original Nature, the Unicity, and the Oneness, which then sets the stage for caring and empathizing as well as knowing Real Love and understanding the Everythingness as well as the Nothingness. To transition the "mind" and enter a non-dual, no-belief, no-mind, zero-concept state is 

1. to transition duality-generating consciousness and thinking and believing and intelligence (and all that came with humanity's higher level of intelligence as discussed in yesterday's post) and 

2. to abide under the auspices of that which has been available but has not been previously tapped into ... that which lies at a subconscious level ... at a non-dual-consciousness level. To abide under the auspices of the "constructive" brain as it functioned originally (before parts of the brain developed into what is called "the mind" and the "intellect") is to abide under the auspices of the sixth sense ... the intuition. 

The intuition functions at a subconscious / non-consciousness level, and by tapping into that (which is often called the inner guru or the inner resource), then one is abiding in the natural (nisarga) fashion that characterized the pre-human and human experience prior to humans becoming the duality-driven, sociopathic killing machines that they too often are nowadays. 

By functioning at the intuitive level, duality is bypassed, so functioning happens with a spontaneous sense of Oneness and Love rather than with a learned sense of two-ness and hate or fear. The spontaneous functioning which happens at that level bypasses the warped "mind" and allows for all happenings to be a result of "constructive" choices rather than of the "destructive" hidden and unconscious agendas of personality. 

When that type of functioning manifested here, following Full Realization and an understanding of the functioning of the totality, then Reality was overlaid on the relative and all aspects of the abidance have happened spontaneously in the pre-manifestation manner of THAT-ness and as the Original Nature and in the manner that humanity abided in during its pre-intellectual and pre-mind and pre-thinking and pre-inhumane days

Are the charges of humans now being the most effective killing machines on the planet too harsh? Are suggestions too harsh that there is only a thin line between humans' altruism and kindness vs. their sociopathy and cruelty? Before answering, consider the prevalence of sociopathy historically and now: 

A. For example, a few years ago, a small number of people in the U.S. committed fraud to such a degree that they collapsed economies here and around the globe and - relatively speaking - negatively impacted the existence of billions of people. And the reaction of those sociopathic criminals? Today, they are gloating, never having expressed even the slightest remorse; most are continuing to behave in the same greedy fashion, accumulating and accumulating and accumulating. They are sociopaths. 

B. Then consider the fact that billions worship and adore a god that supposedly represents Love and Goodness but who made a place of eternal fire and punishment; who opened up holes in the ground that swallowed thousands at a time; who set up 100,000 to be killed in one day by those who were chosen by him; and who eventually became so angry that he killed every human on the planet except for the members of one family. 

Of course that god and those actions are fictional nonsense, but the fact is that billions believe in that God and truly believe that those actions did happen; nevertheless, they still love and worship someone who is that volatile and that cruel. They still love and worship and adore someone who - in the contents of their own books that they deem "holy" - has been revealed to be a sociopathic mass murderer. 

That tells you all you need to know about the persons who do believe that all of that happened and who still love the one who behaved that way. Yes, that is the kind of god that supposedly god-like, god-loving people identify with, a god who has behaved like a full-blown sociopath even as his worshippers claim that he is "love personified." The evidence is clear that 97% of the people on the planet are dualistically willing to accept their sometimes kind but sometimes cruel god or gods and goddesses that supposedly create but also punish and destroy.  Are you among the billions who adore and worship a sociopath? Then you are sociopathic as well, along with billions more.

C. Also, there is now research which reveals the following as well: lest one argue that sociopathic behaviors are not at all inherent to one degree or another in the human species but are developed after spending many years in "a cold, cruel world," consider the findings from a study of children that had not yet spent scores of years in a "cold, cruel world": 

"The Journal Of Child Psychology And Psychiatry" concluded that "an estimated 98 percent of children under the age of ten are remorseless sociopaths with little regard for anything other than their own egocentric interests and pleasures."

Dr. Leonard Mateo, a developmental psychologist at the University of Minnesota and lead author of the study, concluded: "The most disturbing facet of this ubiquitous childhood disorder is an utter lack of empathy. [They] deliberately violate every social norm without ever pausing to consider how their selfish behavior might affect others. It's as if they have no concept of anyone but themselves." 

According to the Hare Psychopathy Checklist, a clinical diagnostic tool, sociopaths often display superficial charm, pathological lying, manipulative behaviors, and a grandiose sense of self-importance. After observing 700 children engaged in everyday activities, Mateo and his colleagues found that 684 exhibited these behaviors at a severe or profound level. 

Consider how many children are killing themselves as a result of being bullied by other children. Consider how many children are bullying. Consider how many children are killing other children. Totally sociopathic. 

D. Then consider the sociopathy among adults that resulted in the American Holocaust when 150 million indigenous peoples were slaughtered; that resulted in the torture and mass murder that marked the Catholics' Inquisition; that resulted in WWI; that resulted in WWII and the European Holocaust with fifty-five million killed during a war that lasted less than eight years; and see the sociopathy that is resulting in wars being fought all around the globe right now. All of the above was and is rooted in sociopathic behavior. 

E. Then consider the fact that 59% of all women murdered annually in the U.S. are killed by "spouses" or "lovers," that is, by people who had professed undying love for those they eventually killed. Sociopaths. 

F. Moreover, forty-one of all men murdered annually in the U.S. are killed by "spouses" or "lovers," that is, by people who had professed undying love for those they eventually killed. Sociopaths. 

G. Next, consider the pervasiveness of religious people killing others because they belong to a different religion; of sect members killing others because they belong to a different sect; of religious people killing female children in their cultures because the girls want an education; of people killing people because they are of a different race; ad infinitum. Duality at its worse. "Minds" at their worst with the newer parts of the brain driving the cruelest of thoughts and words and deeds ... all generating sociopathic behavior. 

The severity of the Ultimate Sickness and its symptoms have evolved along with the brain to the point that the original belief-in-duality-strain of the Sickness has now become "The Ultimate Sickness on Steroids" or "An Industrial Strength Version of The Ultimate Sickness." Never in the history of the human species or of the Ultimate Sickness has the Illness been so widespread. Never in the history of the human species or the Sickness has the Illness been so potent. 

Thus, the call for Realization is more vital now than at any time in human history because the occurrences of sociopathy and Borderline Personality Disorder and neuroses and psychoses are more extensive now than at any time in human history. Maharaj's call for persons to shift to a state wherein they are free of the "mind" and its content and their beliefs and the agendas of the false personas stored therein is more justified than ever. 

Yet most of those with the Ultimate Sickness do not even know they are Sick. They could read this post and not relate at all; and if some sociopaths did relate, they would not care. In scores of sessions where the traits of a sociopath have been outlined with sociopaths, most have just laughed, saying, "Ha! You got me there! Yes! That's me! I'm just like that!" 

Those with the non-duality understanding are aware that the process which has, in some cases, broken the sociopathic bondage of persons who "have no concept of anyone but themselves" is referred to as Realization, which involves Realization of the falsity of self (of "themselves") ... Realization of the Oneness ... Realization of Real Love. So, a most revealing exercise would be to ask these two questions: 

1. Do you love and worship and approve of a sociopath's atrocious behavior and his modus operandi in general? Then you are also sociopathic. 

2. Do you know of a species that loves and worships and approves of a sociopath's atrocious behavior and his modus operandi in general? Then you have found a species that - at its core - is displaying a schizophrenic ability to (a) believe that they are loving while (b) also endorsing atrocious, sociopathic behavior. 

And THAT is the stuff of the "evolved and extolled human mind." 

Yet some say, "I know some wonderful, altruistic people who are so kind that they will do anything for anyone in need. They put the needs of others above their own." 

You are not talking about someone you know. You are talking about a personality type. Personality can drive Type Twos to be helpful and compassionate, but a stressed Type Two disintegrates and becomes a Type Eight, and Type Eights can easily and readily behave as sociopaths, even as they can also appear at times to be totally charming (see Ted Bundy and other serial killers, or see your unstable boss, or see your political representative who wants to write laws that force women made pregnant during a rape to carry that pregnancy to full-term against their own will. Sociopaths). 

Moreover, as with all personality types, Type Two Helpers / Caregivers are driven by subconscious, ulterior, hidden agendas. The Type Two believes he or she needs massive amounts of love (often as a result of an issue with an absentee or emotionally-unavailable father during one's childhood); therefore, what appears to be altruism with a Type Two is really far more about self and the false self's perceived needs and desires and fears. Giving to get is not altruism.

Again, as a result of what has happened to the brain; and as a result of persons being driven by the fallacious content of a "mind"; and as a result of personas determining thoughts and words and actions; and as a result of persons being driven by their neuroses and their psychoses; 

and as a result of 97% of the population of the planet having normalized the sociopathic tendencies of the one(s) they worship and adore; and as a result of the fact that the boundary between kindness and cruelty is now too often one with a razor-thin edge; then the call for Full Realization is more justified than ever. Yet the call is usually unheard. 

To be continued. 

 
Please enter the silence of contemplation.

Hopefully, more who are ready will be able to take the course. For me, the course was the beginning of the unlearning that led to the trip to the lake for a retreat and the understanding."

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.

    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.

    "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.

    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.

    "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.
