Part Three: THE ULTIMATE SICKNESS CENTERS NOT IN TOO LITTLE DOGMA AND NOT IN A SPIRITUAL MALADY AND NOT IN A FAILURE TO BE “A SUPREME SELF” OR “GOD” BUT CENTERS IN THE MIND

Today's Considerations

Yesterday:

The mind and assigned or assumed personalities are like conjoined twins, so that condition can bring unspeakable relative horrors as when human twins are conjoined or when a mind exists and is conjoined with personality identifications.

Conjoined twins are identical twins joined in utero. Approximately half are stillborn, and a smaller fraction of pairs which do survive for a time have abnormalities which are incompatible with life. To the non-dualist, they are a literal token - an observable symbol of duality - and both types of conjoining (relatively speaking) are handicapping and disabling conditions.

In the U.S., approximately 4.5% of all children will have fairly serious defects; more common are an assortment of sometimes-less-severe or even minor defects. Most physical bodies arrive in fairly normal condition, but that is only about the body.

The greater defects will be added as hearsay is shared and minds begin to form. The resulting defect or illness – the Ultimate Sickness – begins to take hold as a result of environmental influences and parental influences and cultural influences which all join forces to warp the minds of offspring and to begin filling those minds with an assortment of assigned, false personal identities.

As a result, all persons will eventually suffer from the Sickness which is as debilitating as being conjoined with a twin because that is the case with the mind / personality phenomenon. Consider:

Body-mind-personality identification is key to misunderstanding. It is defective to identity with the body only, yet at least the body is natural, rooted as it is the elements. The consciousness is rooted in the Absolute field, a field of energy which has no awareness of, or consciousness of, anything; which can be pulled into a cycling process and can then manifest within a space; which can – once manifested – be conscious of; and (if “Realized”) can be aware of as well.  

The mind and the personality, by contract, are not natural. They are most unnatural, especially when supposedly-supernatural elements (concepts) are added to the mix and stored in the mind as identities / personalities / personas / roles / stage characters, etc.

Once the mind and personal identifications are conjoined, then one becomes exactly like conjoined twins in that the result of the conjoined mind-personality-identifications complex is this: persons will also suffer from “abnormalities which are incompatible with life.”

Suicide rates have soared. Self-destructive tendencies have soared. Self-defeating behaviors have soared, and all behaviors result from this continuum: thoughts to words to deeds. Perverted thoughts / beliefs eventually = perverted behaviors.

Being driven by the hidden, subconscious agendas of 80-100 false identities eventually = dual-mindedness, instability, chaos, and self-destructive behaviors.

Being driven by warped programming and conditioning and acculturation and domestication and brainwashing and indoctrination can only lead to warped thoughts and words and actions. And what is the blockage which prevents seeing that is one's condition and admitting it and addressing it? Ego and egotism, as exemplified in such comments as “Go to hell, Floyd. My parents did one heckuva job raising us.”

For the few that hang around long enough, continuing with the process offered here long enough for some lights to begin to come on, then there is the chance that – instead of seeing the perceived snake is just a rope – they might just see that the perceived supposedly-heckuva-good-rope is actually . . . a snake. Why the reluctance? The thought is, “If one of my parents was totally screwed, then I’m at least half screwed. If both of my parents were screwed up in the way they raised me, I’m totally screwed. And worst of all, that might mean that I’ve been totally screwed as a parent, but I know that's a lie because I am a 'Super Parent'.”

So would admitting the truth also have to call for resenting? Of course not. It calls for objectivity and for questioning all which has been accepted on blind faith and which has been denied because of egotism and which is now calling for this: accepting the facts of one’s condition and understanding how one came into that condition. 

Therefore, the reply to those who ask if the recommendation here is to resent your forebears who passed down generations of accumulated ignorance and insanity is this: “You need not address the fact that they are / were screwed. It was done to them by their parents. Now, it is only time to find out exactly everything that is bogus which was handed down to you and for you to participate in un-screwing yourself by being willing to be un-taught and by un-learning all the ignorance that was taught. Welcome to “The Un-Teaching, Un-Learning Site.”

The next question is, "So are you ready to abandon the false and accept the Truth, the facts surrounding your condition?" The honest answer to that question will be key because in order to begin the journey toward being restored to sanity, this is the fundamental fact: the readiness is all.

That involves the readiness to set aside all beliefs . . . to set aside all that you have been told . . . to set aside egotism and . . . to see that (mental and personality) defects are present while acknowledging that they can be addressed.

The option? Continuing to suffer the misery of unspeakable relative horrors like those which exist when human twins are conjoined or like those which exist when a mind is conjoined with personality identifications (or even with some “Supreme” identity).

As was the case with Maharaj, when compared with the spiritual giants who sometimes come this way, I am a spiritual pygmy, so what is given no significant at all here is anything deemed to be either supreme or Supreme. Apologies of a sort to your identities or Your New Identity, but the fact here is . . . "not impressed." The question for those in that mental state is, “WHO is impressed in your / 'Your' case?"

Maharaj: “I have no identity (Identity) at all.” And that worked just fine then and it will work just fine now.

To be continued.

Please enter the silence of contemplation.

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.
