TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS 

Of the fifteen subjects on “Floyd’s List of ‘Final Talk’ Topics,” #1 involves understanding “the source of all relative problems.” So far, the discussion has identified two key sources of those problems, namely, 

A. the through-the-roof  levels of fanaticism which are linked to the through-the-roof  levels of the Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (O-CD), and 

B. the through-the-roof levels of humankind’s present propensity to make their relative existence far more complex than it need be rather than to take the steps necessary to abide in a far-simpler fashion. 

Of course both “A” and “B” involve personality, O-CD being a personality disorder and personality identifications being the complicating factors in what could otherwise be a simple existence. 


C. Another major source of all relative problems could be eliminated . . . 

If the Masses Could At Least Understand What They Are Not 

Earlier, this consideration was offered: If the end of the search for labeling comes with the understanding that you are nothing, what is to seek? The only thing to seek is that understanding. Then, being label-free and identity free, the remainder of the abidance can happen naturally, simply, sanely, and rationally ... without the burden of the egotism and conceit that accompany the assumption of "noble" identities. 

With nothing more to do, the illusion of the "do-er" can end and what then begins is the mere beingness - marked not by anything unnatural and not by anything thought to be supernatural but only by that which is nisargan / natural. Most will never seek the answer to the question "Who Am I, Really?" Among the few who do seek, few will ever find the answer . . . for a host of reasons. 

Primary among those reasons is the fact that they are asking the wrong question to begin with: There is no "WHO" and there is no "WHO-ness." The legitimate question to ask is, "WHAT am I, really?" The answer, mentioned earlier, is a "composite unity of elements, air, and conscious-energy." Understand:

I have been present for the coming together of all universes, and so have you. If you choose to identify with the Absolute in this particular universe - that field of energy / Awareness from which all specks of consciousness manifest - with what can you identify prior to the field manifesting? You were even prior to that. And what was prior to that? 

The Void, then some other universe, then some other Void, then some other universe, ad infinitum. So what are you, really? What all is: merely energy / matter. Because all is energy / matter, and because neither of those can be created or destroyed, they have always been, even prior to the formation of this universe. What were "you" prior? Merely matter / energy (which has been cycling eternally). Because "Reality" is a no concept, no-identity, non-dual Reality, then what is with all of this identity-seeking? 

[That will be a far-too-radical pointer for most seekers, wanting as they do to define and re-define their self-ness and / or Self-ness. So it is.] 

To find that which one is, one must find that which "one" has always been. And to find that which "one" has always been, you must first find all that you are not because it is all that you are not which blocks the seeing of that which you are and that which was even prior to that. Next, because all of those not-you's are the present source of all misery and suffering, there is only one logical conclusion that can be drawn: 

if you would be free of misery and suffering, then you must know those not-you's and end once and for all their influence over your thoughts and words and deeds. To be influenced and driven and controlled by the not-you's would be no different from being influenced and driven and controlled by a mirage in the road ahead while driving through the desert. 

Consider this illustration: As mentioned here on occasion, 59% of all women murdered annually in the U.S. are killed by one claiming at some point to have "loved" them: "The Lover" or "The Boyfriend" or "The Husband" or "The Common Law Husband," etc. When are those women killed 59% of the time? When they try to leave their "Lover" or "Boyfriend" or "Husband" or "Common Law Husband," etc. (By the way, the women are "catching up" nowadays: 41% of all males killed in the U.S. are killed by a woman during a breakup.) The insnaity? 

[Many among the masses in the U.S. are currently paralyzed by their fear of being killed by "a foreign terrorist coming into the country" (a notion being aggravated by the current alarmist, political rhetoric being broadcast into their homes via television news and "special reports") while totaling ignoring the facts which shows that any danger threatening "their lives" is actually already in bed with them, a.k.a., "sleeping with the enemy."]

Why do such murders happen? Because in the example above, the male involved really believes that the not-him is Him, and all not-him's (and not-you's) require a codependent counterpart, a person willing to play the other part in any dualistic pairing. "The Husband" can only "exist" (in his "mind") if that role has one willing to play "The Wife." If "The Wife" determines that she is no longer willing to play the role that reinforces the illusion of "Husband-ness" in the "mind" of the male involved with her, then all "Husband" role-playing will end. 

He can no longer be a "Husband"; he can only be an "Ex-Husband," in his "mind." Identified with that role, the one playing "The Husband" will believe that he is actually being attacked and will believe that he is about to be destroyed. In the warped game of role-assumption, insanity can reach such a level of severity that one mirage can come to believe that it can be assailed and annihilated by another mirage. 

Talk about the insanity of duality and the insanity of believing in dualistic concepts and ideas and identities. So consider: if the one playing "The Husband" in that example were to come to understand that He is not a "Husband," then he would not feel threatened and would not feel driven to lash out in defense of a culturally-assigned and culturally-encouraged mirage. 

If none of the people in relationships in the U.S. ever "realized fully" but were at least to understand what they are not, then 59% of all women killed annually would not be killed, and 41% of all men killed annually would not be killed. And none of those people would have to understand anything about "realization" for that to happen. 

[The same is truth regarding "world leaders." There was a time when the masses might need to consider politicians' policy statements concerning domestic issues and their possible leadership skills in terms of foreign affairs. Now, the overriding consideration at this moment should be, "Is this candidate even sane or not?" The Ultimate Sickness is that pervasive.]

Consider the impact on the relative existence if only persons were at least to understand what they are not, even if they never find the answer to "Who - or what - am I, really?" 

The only possible correct answer is “energy / matter,” and neither energy nor matter can suffer from O-CD or any other personality disorder; neither energy nor matter can complicate a relative existence; 

neither energy nor matter can be programmed or conditioned or acculturated or domesticated or brainwashed or indoctrinated to believe that it is something that it is not; and neither can be driven and controlled by one, two or all three of the symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness as identified by Maharaj, namely, "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity."

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.
