Today's Considerations

Also from the book entitled A Different Perspective:

Other perspectives which different from those held by the masses can manifest if Realization is combined with the yoga that invites natural living vs. unnatural or supernatural living. Why do billions adhere to the dictates of their religious dogma? Why do persons reject the notion mentioned earlier that they may as well abandon their organized religions and their spiritual practices?

Because the masses are addicted to power and control; 

because the masses believe that there is a power or Higher Power or "The Universe" that is available to interfere with the happenings on this planet if invited to do so with unquestioning faith;

and 

because persons live in personality-driven fear and desire and they believe that if they have a relationship with the powerful "here" and The Powerful "there," then they can have their fears alleviated and their desires fulfilled.

The perspective here is this:

All is matter / energy and neither energy nor matter can be created nor destroyed; hence, there has never been anything "created" so,  therefore, there is not and never has been a "Creator." 

Similarly, there has never been a birth because there has never been a baby that was created because "babies" are a result of a simple process which involves nothing more than an act of friction followed by the cycling of already-existing elements. And since there has never been a birth, there has never been - and never will be - a rebirth. (Nothing is simpler to accept if the logic and rationality which manifest via a clear perspective are present.)

(As Maharaj made clear, all supposed "memories" or intimations of a prior life or prior lives, therefore, are as much a product of the imagination as are "creation," "creating," "creators," and a "Creator" as well as the thousands of gods and goddesses which have been dreamed up and worshipped off and on for five thousand or more years in many different cultures. He made clear that there is nothing and there is no one who was, is, or shall be "holy" or "sacred," so that would - necessarily - have to apply to cows as well.)

Because there is no Creator "there," there are no creators "here," so no one have ever created anyone. Elements cycle. That's all.

Because there is no birth, merely a cycling of elements, then there can be no re-births and no reincarnations (much less multiple births and multiple lives and multiple deaths and multiple re-births). Maharaj asked: "You have not been born once, so how can you possibly be 'born again'?"

Moreover, since there will be no being who lives post-manifestation, there can be no prior-to-mahasamadhi need for special diets, special clothes, special smoke, special chanting, special bells, devotion to special dogma, engaging in the workaholism involved with daily spiritual practices, or fighting and killing in the name of a god).

Because there is no death, there is no "after-death" or "afterlife." Post-manifestation, the elements of a plant food body return to the universal pool of elements. Nothing remains to be judged, to be found lacking, to be deserving of punishment; nothing remains to be found acceptable or good or even great and therefore deserving of reward.

The Advaitin Christ was right about a few non-duality pointers:

No one shall ever see a kingdom of heaven. It is within (if peace is within).

Heaven and earth shall fade away (as the conscious fades away because they are just mental concepts, dreamed up and stored in an elemental brain. The brain will return to the elemental pool, so no concepts can remain.)

When you speak of me, speak of me as I AM (meaning, with no false identity labels following the phrase "I Am").

Before Abraham was, I AM (what with energy, and therefore, conscious-energy having always been).

I come not in peace but I come with a sword. (He went on to explain, to be used in order to destroy every assumed or assigned identity which you believe in and hold dear).

So, those are some of the different perspectives which came after the Nisarga Yoga understanding was combined with the understandings which came with Realization in the case of the specks of consciousnesses called "Maharaj," "Jesus," "Floyd" and all that have come to the full understanding.
 
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.
