TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS 

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

The source of all relative problems always involves fanaticism. 

Fanaticism is always rooted in the agendas of personality identifications. 

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

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

Above All: Be Love, But Then Live In An "As If" Fashion So That You Can Enjoy Love As A Relative Expression Of ABSOLUTE, REAL LOVE As Well 
(Part Two, Continued: What Real Love Is Not) 

9. Is it possible that Love is NOT that which results when your limbic brain system releases pleasure-producing chemicals when you are attracted to someone? That part of the brain recognizes the familiarity of your “caretakers,” ignoring whether that caretaking was effective or harmful, relatively speaking. It is a chemical reaction, not a “love-reaction,” when “others” attract you because of a subconscious response that you can neither trigger willingly nor halt on your own.

10. Is it possible that Love is NOT the “repetition compulsion” that drives persons to recreate unhealthy relationship models from the past (with a hidden agenda of bringing about what you believe would be a more positive outcome)? Suppose you’re a young woman now whose father during your youth could not express love. Are you seeking men with a fatherly-image who seem willing to love you unconditionally? Are you taking that to be “love” when you're really addressing a subconscious need that is rooted in childhood disappointments? 

[Relatedly, have you ever seen a person who is only attracted, over and over again, to psychos and who rejects all persons who are fairly healthy in terms of psychic development and integration? Investigate the domestication and conditioning that such a person was exposed to in the childhood home and the causes behind the mystery of "Why does he / she repeatedly go for those types?" or "Why do I repeatedly go for those types?" will usually be revealed.] 

Furthermore, is True Love ever needy, really? Absolutely not. Are you from a broken home and are now being driven subconsciously to try to form a family and to “get it right” this time? Are you assuming erroneously that it is Real Love that is driving that desire? 

11. Is it possible that Love is NOT real if it drives self-destructive behavior or if it drives you to try to please at any cost . . . even the cost of never finding out who "you" truly are as you subjugate yourself to another person? 

12. Is it possible that Love is NOT the purely physical response that automatically drives all species to propagate? 

13. Is it possible that Love is NOT that which is a product of the many subconscious and unconscious factors that drive persons to try to treat with "love" the plethora of mental and emotional issues that need addressing? 

14. Is it possible that Love is NOT that which drives you to expend so much of your energy in an effort to find something that will heal the wounds of your childhood trauma and / or your adulthood trauma? 

15. Is it possible that Love is NOT that which drives persons to unite in order to feel whole? Are you aware that those drives are rooted in not knowing the unicity, in imagining that the duality of “separation” is "real," and in believing that the duality of "aloneness" or "apartness" are “real?” If you complete the "Seven-Step Journey to Reality," you will understand that the word "aloneness" is a corruption of the original term, "all-oneness." 

16. Is it possible that Love is NOT what it is taken to be by anyone involved in “self” (personas, false selves) nor by anyone who has not Fully Realized, nor by anyone who has not come to know the unicity of all via True Self Awareness? 

17. Is it possible that Love is NOT what it is taken to be by persons who are unaware of the selflessness beyond this manifestation? 

18. Is it possible that Love is NOT that which persons are driven to search for as a result of the desires, the perceived emotional needs, and the fears of their ego-states? 

19. Is it possible that Love is NOT that which drives persons to try to find a partner to provide now what they wanted in childhood but did not get? 

20. Is it possible that Love is NOT that which is supposed to meet regularly your physical desires and is NOT that which is supposed to provide for your economic welfare? 

21. Is it possible that one's desire to buy you with money - to have you sell yourself - is 

(a) NOT at all a display of how much that person must surely love you and is 

(b) NOT evidence of how fantastic you must surely be? Is it possible, instead, that a monetary or material offer - no matter how nobly or philanthropically or altruistically or "lovingly" the proposition is packaged - is itself evidence of that person's narcissism-based arrogance, of that person's desire to own and possess and jealously control, and of that person's propensity to downgrade you (along with any others whom that person has likely been able to buy before you)? 

What other beliefs need to be abandoned in order for you to look objectively at your past and present beliefs and thoughts and behavioral patterns in regard to relationships and "love" and then be able to differentiate between what Real Love is vs. what Real Love is not? 

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.
