TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS 

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

A. The source of all relative problems always involves fanaticism

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

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

To summarize some of the other key pointers which would be offered if the final talks were limited to what could be shared during the final three hours of the manifestation: 

1. Find the simplest version of these teachings. 

2. Abide naturally. 

3. Seek no identity, including "good" ones. 

4. Rest in the awareness of the nothingness. 

5. All things relative and Absolute is much ado about nothing. 

6. Settle not for instability. 

7. Question. 

8. Be free of the effects of your programming, conditioning, domestication and acculturation. 

 9. March to the beat of your inner guru. 

10. Transition both religious and spiritual concepts. 

11. Understand that there are hundreds of sources of pain, that there is only one source of misery and suffering, and that you must return to the mind-less "Child No-Knowing Stage" is you would be free and happy. 

12. If you would abide naturally, find either a guide or a model that is abiding naturally. 

13. You Really Can Just Be (Without Being Anything or Anybody). 

14. Be still and know that you are and know that you are that so that you can be still and know that you are so that you can be still and know so that you can then just be still so that you can just . . . be. 

And then next: 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, Completion: Being Love and the Natural Expression of Love) 

Deer in the wild know the I AM, but they do not know THAT. Deer in the wild abide in a sound and logical and rational and stupidity-free and insanity-free manner, focusing only on the AM-ness while focusing not at all on the THAT-ness. Those who would live supernaturally are actually living unnaturally and, therefore, are not living naturally at all. 

The actual "end goal" of engaging in all of the "work" and "effort" that goes into Realization is not to know THAT and to abide as THAT ONLY, forsaking all of the joys and pleasures that can only happen during the relative. The "end-goal" is to be free of all ideas and concepts and beliefs and attitudes that drive efforts to abide supernaturally (i.e., in a spiritual or magical or mythical or "kindergartenly" fashion) and to be free of the influence of all thoughts and words and deeds that result in non-natural living. 

That is, the end goal is to abide as the deer abide, enjoying the enjoyable parts of the AM-ness and / or witnessing the not-so-enjoyable happenings during the AM-ness without ever being occupied or pre-occupied with THAT at all. 

Here, in October of 2011, when the heart with a near-total blockage in a main artery reached its peak of functioning most unnaturally, there was a constant awareness of the heart's presence because of stabbing jolts of pain, because of its irregular and arrhythmic beating, and because of its pounding away in a manner that made it impossible to ignore. 

By contrast, when the heart is functioning naturally, neither you nor I nor anyone else is aware of the presence of the heart. So it is post-Realization when natural abidance merely happens spontaneously. There is no need for awareness of awareness. All just happens spontaneously. While the natural functioning of a heart can allow the relative existence to unfold in a peaceful and even enjoyable manner without the slightest need to focus on the heart, so too can the understanding of THAT allow the relative existence to unfold in a natural and peaceful and even enjoyable fashion without any longer needing to focus on THAT at all. 

The deer that function in a manner that is not plagued with programming, conditioning, domestication, and acculturation are abiding in the manner that should be the end goal of every seeker. The deer are fully and automatically and spontaneously and instinctively and mindlessly and unthinkingly engaged in the AM-ness. There is nothing more than that which should be sought by any seeker. 

Again, the "Truly Realized" do not run. They do not run to and they do not run from. They abide with a sense of impartiality, witnessing all objectively and accurately from a platform of neutrality. They are fully and automatically and spontaneously and instinctively and mindlessly and unthinkingly engaged in the AM-ness, no longer working to focus primarily on the THAT-ness; 

therefore, there is no disparity between the I AM and the I AM THAT; there is no disparity in the AM-ness and the THAT-ness among the Fully Realized; and there is no disparity in Real Love and the expression of relative, physical love when the latter is understood to be as much an expression of the Oneness as Real Love itself: 

Maharaj said, "Love is knowing that I am Everything," and among "the Realized" still engaged in the physical expression of the unicity, there is no disparity and there is no misunderstanding about what the physical expression is actually representing or expressing. 

 Among those not engaged in the AM-ness aspect of expressing the Oneness, some are abstaining because their partner left, because their partner "died," because of health issues, because of aging issues, and for a number of other all-natural or understandable reasons. That is normal. 

"The Realized" are not immunized against all things relative, so such effects as the above can result, naturally; those people are completely prepared for whatever the relative brings and will feel whatever feelings arise as a result of whatever happens while being exempted from ego-state-driven emotional intoxication around relative events. Thus, they remain at peace, whether "with" or "without" things relative. 

There was a time when Maharaj enjoyed sex and a time when he no longer engaged in the act. Yet at no time, post-Realization, did he avoid sex because he had a belief that abstinence would render him "supernatural" or "spiritual" or "lofty" or "noble" or "exalted" or "elevated." And at no time, post-Realization, did he not know Love, and at no time post-Realization was he not aware of the Oneness (such awareness being a prerequisite for understanding what Real Love is). 

Expressed in a relative manner or not, Real Love was known, whether shown literally or not. By contrast, consider those who offered the advice that "you should encourage abstinence." They are not engaging in the AM-ness aspect of expressing the Oneness because they believe it makes them "more spiritual" or "more pure" or "better than other persons" or "more pleasing to god." The result? They are abiding in an unnatural and abnormal fashion. They are as deluded as they were prior to claiming Realization. They are not free of beliefs but are as trapped in beliefs as ever. 

Here, it is freedom from beliefs (and desires and fears) which guarantees that there is no running after sex (or anything else) and there is no running away from sex (or anything else). Here, the abidance happens naturally and spontaneously, as if the relative existence were a pleasurable journey that is happening in an AS IF manner and AS IF it were happening via an airplane that is in "auto-pilot" mode and that is sailing smoothly and calmly above the fray. 

Furthermore, there is no advice here to engage in sex that is an expression of the Oneness or not to engage in sex at all . . . no advice to "do this" or to "not do that." The pointer is that when persons are lost in the role of "The Spiritual Giant," they will behave in a supernatural and / or unnatural manner, and that is exactly the case with the two who are now playing the role of "Religious and Spiritual Giants Who Are the Givers of Unsolicited Advice and Who Would Control What All Persons Do and Do Not Do With Their Own Bodies." 

Offered above were some logical reasons why some no longer engage in the expression of Love via the relative act of expressing Love (though they most assuredly still know True Love); yet here, the pointer is that to believe that one is better (and better than "others") for choosing abstinence in a most unnatural and illogical conclusion and has nothing at all to do with actual Realization. 

Finally, for those who are using persons as sex objects to build up their own egos, yes, abstinence for a period of time might be indicated if it would allow their focus to shift away from self-gratification and self-focus to a focus on the search for authenticity and for a complete understanding of the statement that "Love is knowing that I am Everything." 

Here, meanwhile, where Nisarga (Natural) living is the only rule, no natural act can or will be blacklisted, advice from those assuming the role of "Spiritual Giants" notwithstanding.

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.
