TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS 

To review the key pointers that would be offered were the taking of mahasamadhi only hours away: 

1. The source of all relative problems always involves fanaticism. 

2. Fanaticism is always rooted in the agendas of personality identifications. 

3. Fanaticism also works hand-in-hand with higher-than-ever levels of the Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder are manifesting around the globe. 

4. “It’s all very simple so keep it that way.” 

5. “Seek what you are if you like, but it would be enough to simply find what you are not.” 

6. “Question everything and everyone.” 

7. “The relative existence will never be stable, but you can be.” 

8. “If seeking authenticity, listen to the beat of your inner guru and allow that to be the drum which provides the beat to which you march.” 

9. “There are hundreds of sources of pain, but only one source of misery and suffering.” 

10. "If you would come to understand how to abide naturally, find a guide and then a model that are abiding naturally."

The next topic offered for consideration is excerpted from the book WHEN ONLY THREE HOURS OF MANIFESTATION REMAIN (The "Final" Talks of Floyd Henderson): 

 [Continued from yesterday]

If You Would Come To Understand How To Abide Naturally, Find A Guide And Then A Model That Are Abiding Naturally, Part B 

The closest that a seeker just beginning the "journey" can come to understanding the nisarga / natural state is to understand that when “the realized” say "I," there is no doubt at all that the "I" that is speaking is a speck of manifested consciousness and nothing more. 

Note the other "lessons" that the deer can offer by way of contrasting natural living vs. unnatural or supernatural living: Having never been programmed, the deer will never wonder, “Who am I, really”? It will not ask, “Wonder what will happen when I die”? It will not shout in frustration someday, “I don’t even know who I am!” It will not leave the doe by which a speck of consciousness called “a fawn” manifested, proclaiming, “You just don’t look as appealing to me since you had that fawn.” 

The doe will never announce, “I’m leaving you for another buck because you’re not good enough for me and your beliefs don’t mirror mine and I can only be in a relationship with a deer that is compatible with me" (meaning, a deer that is really an exact, opposite-sex version of me). Unencumbered by ego and egotism, no deer will find itself trapped someday in a mindset that believes "I am really only capable of loving me or a mirror image of me . . . only capable of loving some phony image that I take myself to be." 

And if the doe were to leave, the buck would not hunt her down and kill her (which is the scenario that accounts for 59% of all murdered human females killed annually in the U.S. during a breakup with "him"). The buck would never eat fermented berries to celebrate a happening or to mourn a happening and then run down a trail at a high speed while intoxicated from such berries and veer off the deer trail and crash into a tree and kill itself. Only humans do that sort of thing. 

The deer will never have to repeat over and over a mantra such as “I AM . . . I AM . . . I AM” in order to free itself of having been programmed to believe that it really is all of the labels that can follow the words “I am.” It does not believe that “I am this doe’s husband” or “I am that fawn’s father” or "I am the owner of this piece of land and will fight for my territory" or "I am the achiever who will accumulate more than I already have." Do “husbanding”-type happenings happen nevertheless? Yes. 

Can “fathering type” happenings still happen with the deer? Yes. Yet there are no false identifications which accompany those happenings. Do feelings rise and fall among the deer? Yes. But do emotions and emotional intoxication happen (a phenomenon that can only occur if an ego-state is assumed and then believes that it is being hurt or threatened or interfered with)? Of course not. That would all be unnatural, and the deer that has not been conditioned or domesticated can only live naturally. 

Because all, including seekers, have been programmed and conditioned and domesticated and acculturated and brainwashed and indoctrinated to define "self" by following the words “I am” with dozens and scores of labels, at the earliest stage of nisarga yoga they are invited to become aware of that same sense of beingness - of “Amness,” of the "Is-ness" - but of the I-Amness or Is-ness only. 

Eventually, along the "path" to realization (defined by Maharaj “freedom of ignorance”) the belief in both the “i” and the “I” will end. All sense of "I-ness" and "self-ness" and "Self-ness" will end. THAT which is beyond beingness and non-beingness will be understood. 

Then, a sense of beingness only remains, but abidance as THAT happens as well, thus: I AM THAT; I AM. Functioning for the remainder of the manifestation then happens with an incredible lightness of being. That is what dwelling in the natural, nisarga state looks like. A mindless deer can pull that off flawlessly. 

That being the case, don’t you suspect that any human – at least any sane human - could do the same if willing to abide naturally rather than unnaturally or supernaturally? 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.
