Today's Considerations

The message offered here is one that is rooted in the understanding which came via a functioning-of-the-totality-revealing vision which came in the late 1990’s which also made clear that “realization” does not involve anything that is lofty and soaring and grand and exalted and noble.

The vision provided an entire series of revelations, all emanating from the inner resource or the inner guru and all sweeping in like a monsoon, which (1) blew away the remaining blockages in the mind and (2) allowed the Pure Witnessing to become conscious of awareness and (3) allowed for an awareness of the no-beginning / no-end cyclings which have gone on forever and which are going on right now and which will go on forever.

So, for the next few days, some of the realizations which came via that vision will be shared (without any suggestion that these realizations are the only “right and proper non-dual realizations”).

The vision revealed that the Absolute (the so-called "Ultimate Reality" or "Great Reality") is actually nothing more than an all-pervasive "field of energy" in which pre-manifestation consciousness is at rest in the form of Awareness.

Also, consciousness itself was shown simply to be conscious-energy, energy which has, as one property, a propensity for "conscious-of-ness" when manifested. 

The vision showed that the Absolute is merely that "field of energy" from which consciousness can be drawn into manifestation. 

The vision also depicted the "field" to which conscious-energy returns during the unmanifesting. 

The vision showed THAT Which All Is; showed the conscious-energy Itself; illustrated that purest, unadulterated "whatever" that All Is; and revealed what the lowest, tiniest common "something" is (which All in this universe is and which all in all universes is). 

The vision showed that ALL is without beginning and without end with nothing ever having been "created," with nothing ever having been "destroyed," and, therefore, with nothing ever in need of an "Other-Worldly, All-Powerful (yet really inefficient) Sustainer."

In the vision, not once did a "Creator" or "Destroyer" or "Sustainer" appear because all is energy-matter, neither of which can be created or destroyed

In the vision, all happened spontaneously and without any single cause or "causer" or "Causer."

In the vision, nothing that happened had any unnatural or supernatural / religious / spiritual / magical element. All happened naturally; hence, the use now of the Nisarga Yoga with the Direct Path Teaching Method that is offered here.

After additional study of the content of the vision, this came: So that's what Maharaj meant when he said, "You are not in the world . . .  the world is in you"  . . . just in your mind, just dreamed up.

It became clear that seekers that Realize fully understand the AM-ness and the THAT-ness (and the “not two-ness” of those) and abandon all earlier misperceptions about what they once called "the world." 

As for the AM-ness, it was shown that the elemental plant food body functions temporarily in the relative "realm" and (contrary to many teachings) is real but is simply not what it was perceived to be when viewed through the distorting prism of programming, conditioning, etc.

As for the THAT-ness, it was revealed to be the Original, Natural, Everlasting Field of Energy which houses awareness-energy that has the potential to manifest as conscious-energy. It has no boundaries and is not confining.

This also became clear: That which is believed by many to be “beyond” the elemental plant food body-cum-consciousness is real because it is energy-matter, yet it is not what it appears to be or said to be. Early steps on "the journey" undertaken in the vision illustrate the mental "world" (an imagined, dreamed up "world") which is the "world" that is viewed through the dirty, obscured window of the fiction-filled mind and that is experienced via the assigned and assumed personas that subconsciously drive non-Realized, body-mind-personality-identified persons' thoughts and words and actions, even as they believe they are making conscious choices. 

Then, this came: Therefore, of course they are not in the world . . . the world is in them, meaning . . . in their minds. 

The vision also revealed this: even after one's former "bad" roles have been replaced with supposedly "good" roles (such as, "The Super Religious One," "The Spiritual Giant," "The Knower-Of-It-All," "The Super Virtuous One," “The Super Seeker,” "The Guardian of the Moral Fabric of the Planet," ad infinitum - all of which are illustrated in the vision by a raven which will eventually morph into a gull, the bird of ignorance), then one will still live under the influence of the Dream of the Planet, walking about while playing “good” roles on the stage of the Theater of the Lie. 

It was seen that nowhere in the vision was there any judging of those playing those roles. The vision made clear that the playing of "good or supreme roles or a Supreme Role" are also steps on "the path," steps which must be taken but that must eventually be transcended if Realization if to happen. 
 
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.
