TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS 

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

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 Three: Being Love and the Natural Expression of Love) 

Shared in an earlier chapter was this point:

Here, it is understood that those who have said "you should encourage abstinence" have mentally discarded the "I AM" part of the summative statement and now delusionally take themselves to be "THAT only." Thus, the discussion will now turn to those who behave in an unnatural manner because they have adopted a supernatural (i.e., "spiritual" or "lofty" or "noble" or "exalted" or "elevated") role which drives them to abandon all that is totally natural and to avoid all that they take to be "impure" even though that is not the case at all. 

Those persons who have offered such suggestions - believing that they have the right to dictate what is taught here and what is not and believing that they have the right to dictate what people should and should not do with their own bodies - have offered their suggestions to the wrong teacher. Here, the Direct Path Method is used in conjunction with the Nisarga (Natural) Yoga, so nothing that is totally unnatural will be endorsed, and all that is natural will be endorsed. 

What those persons want is a teacher who has assumed the same persona that they have, namely, the persona of "The Super Spiritual One"; or, they are seeking a teacher who will reinforce their unnatural mode of functioning and their distorted belief systems. Here, the rejection of all beliefs is recommended; never have the teachings / unteachings here recommended that one should be free of his or her former "bad" beliefs in order to replace those with "good" beliefs, with "religious" beliefs, with "spiritual" beliefs, with "lofty" beliefs, with "noble" beliefs, with "exalted" beliefs, or with "elevated" beliefs. 

The model for abidance in the relative existence here is the deer. The moment that a deer is found to be practicing abstinence, then that might be considered as something "natural," but even that case would likely be found to be an abnormality and dismissed as such. Here, the suggestion is not to run about seeking physical sex or to run away from physical sex. Here, the point is to enjoy all that the relative existence can offer post-Realization because everything enjoyed can finally be enjoyed in a sane, logical, rational, normal and natural manner. 

There will be no "unsafe sex" practiced because that is not sane. There will be no need for sex because that would indicate a dependency, natural urges notwithstanding. As with all things here, sex might happen or might not and the only conclusion either way would be, "So it is." 

On the other hand, the physical expression of Absolute Love via a relative demonstration of Love / love will continue to be viewed as an act that is totally natural. Two persons from the Far East who claimed to be "truly realized" - as opposed to the "non-true realization" they said they had detected here - had explained and complained that "you should be recommending abstinence." Really?

Of course among the non-Realized masses, confusion is the rule, but even among those who claim to be Realized, most are involved in nothing more than the continuing confusion that results from what Maharaj called "kindergarten-level spirituality." In assuming their new but false identity of "THAT ONLY," they are pretending that the relative dissolves as a result of their having reached such noumenal and spiritual heights. 

If that dissolution really happened as a result of Realization, then the only chance for experiencing the essence of Love and Love's Expression would disappear as well because there are no physical rewards awaiting in some imaginary, upgraded "world" that one will supposedly abide in "later" and "eternally." 

Prior to Realization, there is no THAT ONLY, and post-Realization there is no THAT ONLY. The summative statement "I AM THAT; I AM" points as much to Reality post-Realization as it did prior to Realization. 

[Consider the added confusion among the masses after Moses plagiarized that Eastern phrase, claimed he heard the words being spoken from a "burning-bush-cum-god," failed to include the semicolon, and reported that god has identified "himself" as "I AM THAT I AM." Ah, so profound in its sound, yet so totally distorted.] 

So for thousands of years, "I AM THAT; I AM" has been misunderstood by billions upon billions of non-seekers . . . and by far-too-many seekers as well. Here, the invitation is to know the THAT-ness in order that freedom from delusions and distortions can manifest in order that the remainder of the AM-ness can be marked by sanity and then freedom and then peace and then happiness. 

For those who think that THAT is all that matters, they have missed the point completely: the only thing that really "matters" post-Realization IS the remaining IS-ness. Who would go to the effort of journeying to a store during the winter, buying a coat, but then not wearing it when venturing outside on especially-cold days? Who would journey to a store during the winter, buy a coat, but then stay in the store forever? No one that is sane. 

This deal is about completing the "journey" to find that which has been sought in order to be free of the insanity and chaos and dis-ease and disharmony or instability that mark the relative existence when not Realized. It was that drive to be free of the insanity and chaos and dis-ease and disharmony or instability during the relative existence that precipitated the search to begin with. What sense would it make, therefore, to find that which was being sought and then try to abandon the relative existence without ever having enjoyed the insanity-free, chaos-free, disharmony-free, and instability-free existence that can happen via Realization? None. That would make no sense at all. 

Consider: Thoreau: "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have not lived." 

Post-manifestation, after the elements forming the plant food body recycle into the universal pool of elements, and after the formerly-circulating oxygen merges into the universal pool of air, and after the conscious-energy merges into the Absolute, there will be awareness; however, there will be no aware-of-ness and there will be no conscious-of-ness. Whatever is to happen with the composite unity - and via the composite unity that "you" presently are - must happen now. Why? 

Because there will be no "one" remaining, post-manifestation, to be . . . or to know . . . or to enjoy anything. To claim that one has Realized but then to fail to overlay the newly-understood Reality on the relative existence in order to allow the remainder of the manifestation to unfold in a sound and logical and rational and (to use Maharaj's terms) a stupidity-free and insanity-free manner is clear evidence that the life of the one making such a claim is most assuredly continuing to happen in the same insane and unsound and illogical and irrational manner as it was happening prior to any beliefs about "having Realized." 

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.
