Today's Considerations


The reason that Maharaj said that "the cause of all is all" is because everything that is happening “now” happens because of all that happened prior to "now." 

All humans are passing down something by way of archetypal messaging, genetic coding, modeled behaviors, and mind-content-driven word of mouth. Among humans, archetypes and genetics will be passed down in a matter of nine months; the modeling of behaviors and word of mouth "stuff" will be passed down for a “lifetime,” for an entire manifestation. 

And, as addressed in the book entitled The Board of Directors of Wars, what happens nowadays around the globe most often involves conflicts which are rooted in a combination of (a) money and either (b) big government, big business, and / or big religion (and usually all three of those are at play).
  
And beliefs about money and how much is required and beliefs about what type of government is preferred and beliefs about how businesses should behave and beliefs about which religion is the right one (and is therefore worth fighting for or even dying for), all evolve from what was passed down via programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing, and indoctrination by parents and relatives first; then by friends and neighbors; then by teachers or governmental leaders or would-be governmental leaders; and then by one's culture at large.

Most significantly, though, humans adults will pass down to the younger generation only one of two things:

1. knowledge (a.k.a., “learned ignorance”), concepts, dreamed up ideas, lies, nonsense, distortions, delusions, notions, and thoughts (all of which can be summarized as “beliefs” and all of which lead to warped perspectives);

or,

2. wisdom.

That is, in short, all humans are passing down either nonsense or wisdom.

If you are adult-aged, what are you passing down? The "stuff" referenced in #1 above is easy to pass down. Hells bells, humans do that in their sleep. To pass down wisdom, on the other hand, requires a bit more. It requires someone talking from a fully-awake state, from the perspective of the universal consciousness, and someone listening from an awakening or awakened state.

Which prevails on planet earth? What is being passed down among humans, in almost every case? Dreamed up nonsense? Or wisdom? Words intended to manipulate and control, or words intended to free up listeners? Almost always, it is that which is warped, rather than that which is wise, that is being passed along.

So how warped can a warped perspective become?

Yesterday, a site visitor sent a quote from one of the many Republicans running for president as an example of the way that duality is dominating all of their campaigns. Later in the day, a second site visitor sent two statements from another candidate who spoke during their Tuesday night debate, illustrating not only duality but also the way that the two drivers of all personas – desire and fear – set persons up to be manipulated and controlled.

Tap into humankind's fears and – because half of all persons on the planet are Personality Type Sixes who are already trapped in fear and anxiety and angst – then would-be manipulators and controllers will already have 50% of the people eating out of their hands.

In the second quote sent, the warped perspective being shared in order to tap into the emotional intoxication resulting from the fears of voters involves 

(a) ignoring the fact that far more U.S. citizens are killed annually by the members of white, U.S. extremist groups 

while 

(b) telling the citizenry - not that they can expect some random instances of mass murder by jihadists to continue - but that the way things are now, there is a possibility that everyone in the nation may be killed!

(Damn. Don’t you just hate it when 319 million people all die at once?)

So the statements which were sent here yesterday, statements which came by way of the warped perspective of Senator Lindsey Graham, include these: 

“This president [Obama] needs to rise to the occasion before we all get killed back here at home” 

and then on Tuesday night: 

“We're at war folks. They're not trying to steal your car; they're trying to kill us all."

What is the result of the citizenry paying any attention at all to the self-serving comments which are being made and which are receiving national news coverage? Rather than trying to describe the effects, let me show you a 20-second video clip which illustrates the way that many in the U.S. are now reacting:


Of course, the U.S. has not cornered the market on the kind of warped perspective which drives alarmist-types to overreact and to behave insanely. At Mecca this year, 1,453 worshipers died in a human stampede. Annually in India, thousands die in multiple instances of human stampedes. And death-by-human-stampede is happening all around the globe as persons are driven by their learned-fanaticism to put themselves in danger for whatever their particular “cause” might be:

In 2015 alone, 28 people died after a human stampede in Cairo, Egypt; more than 16 people died after a stampede in Haiti; at least 23 people were killed and 50 injured following a stampede in Bangladeshi; and at least 27 pilgrims died in a stampede on the banks of the Godavari River in southern India at a religious festival.

What is being passed down to those assuming the role of “The Super Religious One” and “The Super Pilgrim”? Wisdom? Hardly. Concepts? Maybe concepts such as “You must go on that pilgrimage in order to please the god being celebrated there”? Yes.

There is no middle ground. There is either the Ultimate Medicine in the form of wisdom that is being passed down or there is the Ultimate Sickness being passed along with its symptoms of “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity.”

During childhood, most humans have no choice other than to accept unquestioningly the “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” being passed down. Only ½ of 1% of the people on the planet are rebellious Personality Type Fours who will resist the efforts of adults who would strip them of their sense of authenticity and their innate ability to recognize BS when they hear it.

The majority will cling to the “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” which was passed down. Only a few, Maharaj said, will seek and ultimately find one who is “talking to them from the perspective of the universal consciousness” and someone who is thereby passing down wisdom (which brings with it a different perspective . . . a clear perspective).

Maharaj: “If you hang out around the ‘Big Name Teachers,’ you will get what you deserve.”

Here, “If you hang out around the ‘Big Name Teachers,’ you will never get what you deserve and you will never find that which you seek, namely, wisdom."

What was passed down to you? What are you passing down? No one can give away what one does not have. Nonsense is commonplace. It is everywhere. The invitation is to seek out instead the tiny little pockets of wisdom which are generally far more rare. 

But be on guard. True wisdom is not dressed up in the guise of being "deep" or "profound" or "lofty" or "other-worldly." True wisdom is relevant, logical, down-to-earth, simple, sane, and - most of all - practical.

To be continued.

Please enter into 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.
