TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS

Today there will be offered a discussion regarding certain ways to be free of psychic disintegration and relative destructiveness in the book entitled LIBERATION (Attaining Freedom from Personality Via Realization)

Nine Relative Existence Actions Which Can Help Shift Personas from Unhealthy Stages of Disintegration to Liberation 

Since ego takes the composite of all of its false identities to define “who it is,” there is a major emotional investment among persons in terms of the value given to their false roles and to the amount of energy that ego is willing to expend in trying to preserve and sustain ego’s false images. 

The resulting emotional intoxication prevents the re-purification of the consciousness(that is, unblocking the consciousness which is not perceiving clearly because of blockages in the form of ideas, notions, perceptions, etc. a.k.a., "beliefs") and which prevents any shift from (a) the unhealthy stages of personality disintegration to (b) the highest level of liberation. 

(Liberation here refers to freedom from the influence of ego, freedom from the misery and suffering that are always generated by the corrupted consciousness, and then true freedom, period.) Only the completely re-purified / unblocked consciousness can lead the way to any quality of happiness. 

Ego dulls the quality of the consciousness; then, the ego-driven disintegration of the personality can lead not only to misery and suffering but also to physical destruction as well. For one to be happy, the lies of the ego must be abandoned (which will happen if the consciousness is "re-purified," that is, unblocked). 

 If you find that you’re unable to reject immediately the influences of whichever of the Nine Personality Types are driving you, you can at least begin to wear those types with a lightness rather than as a weighty armor which the ego is using to shield its false identifications and personas. 

Seekers reach understandings in a variety of manners, some by listening; some by reading; some by using a "hands-on," more active approach. There are those who feel a need to take no action to move beyond the darkness and into the light and to a state of liberation and happiness. There are others who are more oriented toward actions. (That should not last.) 

Here, decades of doingness and action-taking produced no results. Awareness came in two stages, first when when lying calmly on the floor of a lakeside condo when a vision came after entering into a theta state and, secondly, while lying on a love seat and contemplating pointers from that earlier vision which came during that theta state in the condo.

Moreover, let it be clear that no one has to go to any particular place to realize. There are no "holy sites" on the planet, only places which various ego-states or manipulators have deemed to be such.

["Holy" means "different." Once non-duality and the Oneness are understood, then that word will never be used again.] 

Meanwhile, what actions can be taken - by those who would take action - to be freed from the unhealthy stages and to shift them into a state of total liberation? The nine suggested actions begin by providing a method to address the needs of those at level nine and then provide a step-by-step process to shift persons from there to the highest level of total liberation and freedom. 

THE NINE ACTIONS
(The early actions on the list are about survival in the relative existence. The later actions are methods for reaching a state of enlightenment and then realization and then "Full Liberation.") 

Action One 

Action One is recommended for those who have disintegrated to the ninth level: intervene by relocating to an environment that can provide safety; move away from triggers. 

Action Two 

Start to understand the personality and what causes it to disintegrate; begin to study the ego and its role in that process; seek out those that are in touch with "Reality" and with reality as well. 

Action Three 

Along with removing yourself from triggering people, triggering places and triggering things, begin to consider the possibility that a false “self” (or selves) might have been driving you throughout the entirety of your life and preventing you from gaining conscious contact with authenticity. 

Action Four 

Engage in activities and exercises that can begin to deflate the ego; begin uncovering the personas (the states-of-being) which inspire aggressive behaviors in defense of ego-generated identities. 

Action Five 

Continue to uncover the roles which you have been playing, the images that you have cultivated (or accepted when assigned to you), and the ego-states or states-of-being that have taken away from you an ability to control your own behavior and life. 

Action Six 

Engage in exercises and disciplines that lead to an awakening, to an awareness of all that you have not previously been aware of; submit to a process of inventory of all of the personality identifications which can then allow you to reach an understanding of “psychological projection” in order to inventory yourself (your “self”) in order to be free of "self" / "selves." 

Action Seven 

You will be re-integrating by this point, but not totally free of ego-identifications; as you continue seeking "full liberation" (that is, being totally free of ego and false persona identities) consider ways in which your relative individual strengths and your newly-gained awareness might be employed in order to provide for your own basic needs as well as to set the stage, possibly, for your awareness to be made available to others seeking the same. 

Action Eight 

Commit to spending whatever time and effort is required to become free of any and all illusions regarding any lingering vestiges of false identities, of ego-states, of states-of-being, of roles, and of anything that is artificial and that blocks your awareness of your original nature and your present reality of being nothing more than a composite unity. 

To be continued.

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.
