TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS 

If one does not return to the pre-programmed, pre-conditioned “Child Ignorance State” / “Child No-Knowing Stage,” then one will behave as a “creature of habit." And “creatures of habit” are not habits – they are creatures, the creatures of one’s scariest nightmare . . . a nightmare in which persons walk about in a “Night of the Living Dead, zombie-like” mode, convinced that they are awake but talking and walking about while being totally asleep. If asleep, no one can make conscious choices. 

Such persons will do whatever they do based only on what was passed down to them by their usually-ignorant ancestors and will, therefore, think and talk and behave in a most ignorant fashion. 

Almost all humans accept as valid and true the labels which they are assigned; the beliefs which they were taught but which are nothing more than myth-and-superstition-based, hand-me-down bits of nonsense, so they will forever be at conflict with self and with others. 

The roots of such conflicts were addressed in the Prince Ea interview which was first discussed here in late 2014 and which was shared again recently because of its relevance to the topic under discussion.

But oh how some report to hate the way that Prince Ea “expresses himself.” 

And how some hate the way he looks. 

And how very much some hated the way he spoke the truth when he addressed the issues in Ferguson, MO, U.S.A.; and more significantly, the truth about the U.S.A., period; and even more significantly, the truth about what persons take to be “the world.” 

Such persons reveal, via their hatred of the truth, that they have missed the non-dual understanding completely and are totally absorbed in duality. So let’s take Ferguson out of the equation, and the U.S. out of the equation, and the so-called “world” out of the equation. 

Then maybe it can be understood that Prince Ea does not “express himself.” Maharaj said, “I talk to you from the perspective of the universal consciousness.” In that case, Maharaj was not speaking when pointers of truth were being hear. In those cases, it was the pure, unblocked consciousness which was speaking, not whoever or whatever persons assume Maharaj to have been or to be. The same can be seen to happen on occasion with Prince Ea. 

If that is understood, then the artificial blockages set in place by programming, conditioning, etc. can fall away and the non-duality pointers which come via that which is labeled “Prince Ea” might be heard objectively and analyzed wisely and understood completely. 

Then seekers and non-seekers alike might listen objectively to what he has to say about the body”; about personality identifications (or “labels”); about how differentiation and division are the prerequisites for conflict; about the Oneness; and about what Real Love truly is and about what Real Love can truly bring into manifestation. 

After that, then maybe the question asked by Maharaj (“When you travel in a car, are you the car?”) and the pointer offered here (“When you fly in an airplane, you are not the airplane”) might be reinforced when Prince Ea explains the way that faulty logic ends up making people mistake a car for what is inside the car.

Moreover, it might be that other of Maharaj’s pointers will be pulled back into consciousness when Prince Ea speaks of those same non-dual truths, as when Maharaj encouraged seekers to seek that which is “undifferentiated”; or when he said, “All divisions are illusory”; or when he said “Love is wise”; and when he said, “Once the true nature of Love is understood, there will be no conflict or confusion”; or when he said, “To seek unity is Love.” 

Thus, for those interested in Maharaj’s pointers about artificial labels and body and personality identification and differentiation and division and the roots of conflict and the Oneness and Love, the following might be of interest as well:

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.
