Today's Considerations

The message offered here is rooted in the understanding of a functioning-of-the-totality-revealing vision which came in the late 1990’s which also showed 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) thus being finally being aware of all involved with 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”).

[If you are interested, you can go to the top of this page and click “FREEBIES” and download a free copy of “The Vision” with color illustrations and then the rest of the pointers to follow will make more sense.] 

The vision showed that all which happens is merely happening under the auspices of the most basic principles that are taught - but evidently seldom learned - in most 4th grade level elementary schools, namely, basic science classes. (Maharaj often said that these teachings are so simple because there is nothing to reconcile that could not be understood with an understanding of the scientific principles that he predicted would advance to the stage that all of the ancient non-dual understandings will someday be scientifically, factually verified.) 


The vision showed that the ultimate problem, though, does not involve as much what persons do not know as what persons think they do know, namely, all of the "acquired knowledge" - a.k.a., "learned ignorance" - that has been accumulated along the way that is cast off in the vision at the fourth stage . . . the gull stage . . . after the return to the Child No-Knowing Stage. 

The vision showed that the body will NOT exist post-manifestation in any form because all of the elements that make up the parts are going to return to the universal pool of elements. 

The vision showed how to reverse back to the Absolute, but it also showed that those seven steps - if studied in reverse - actually illustrate the original manifesting “coming in”) process. In that illustration, the vision makes clear that there was no pre-manifestation You or Me, that there was most certainly nobody (no body) awaiting "birth" or "Creation," and that notions about "pre-birth" contracts are merely so much delusional fiction. 

The vision showed that one need but see that "I AM energy" is fact. 

The vision also showed that the body in which the consciousness is temporarily manifested cannot last forever as a specific form and that it will, therefore, return to the pool of elements when the elements which have come together will eventually come apart. And it showed that in the end all of that will happen painlessly and in a suffering-free manner. 

That is the case among the Realized whether the dissolution happens quickly or drags out over a period, as illustrated by Maharaj whose case was the latter. 

He witnessed the pain of the body that was experiencing the spreading cancerous growth within. The same happens here. There is not a single day now that the effects of a motorcycle accident that occurred years ago do not generate body pain. Being tossed onto the surface of a highway at 70 m.p.h. resulted in the breaking of both major bones in the lower right leg, breaking multiple bones in the left hand, undergoing seventeen breaks in the right foot and ankle, dislocating hips and shoulders, a concussion, and more. Yet the pain has no "mental" or "emotional" effect on the way that "Floyd" moves through each day, and it certainly has no effect on the "spirit" since that does not exist. As with Maharaj, it is all merely witnessed. 

The seven steps of the vision, if understood and felt and "experienced" fully, can generate a sense of comfort and calm and relief and ease alongside a courage-generating sense of security and well-being and contentment and gladness and Love. How can that claim be offered with such assurance? If it happened for "floyd," it can happen for anyone with intellect (meaning, with a capacity to understand). 

Elements of the vision continued to flash into consciousness for months after it initially came. The flashes almost always happened when in a theta state, dozing off or coming out of a deep, delta-level sleep. It was early on during some of those episodes that a backwards or reversed version of the vision began to play out. 

It became clear that after "going back the way I came in" from the Absolute on Leg Two of "the journey," I was now "going back" to the relative the way I had "come in" the first time when the consciousness was subjected to all of the insane programming and conditioning and acculturation and domestication and brainwashing and indoctrination that now happens to all persons.

Yet it was clear that going back to the relative on the Third Leg was different because I was no longer being subjected to programming, conditioning, etc. 

The vision showed that on the third leg, the unblocked consciousness that now knew and understood the Awareness (which was now aware of ItSelf - aware of Its Original Nature which is My Original Nature) would not be anything like the specks of consciousness that had been blocked and that led to a miserable relative existence. 

It was clear that 

(a) things were going to be different from the way they had been prior to completing the seven steps to Reality and that 

(b) Reality was going to be overlaid on the relative 

so that whatever happened would happen spontaneously and would happen as naturally and sanely and reasonably and logically as the relative existence of every living thing of the planet except for the non-Realized masses.

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.
