TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS

[What is being quoted (in green) are the revelations that were emanating from the inner resource - that is, via the pure consciousness . . . the inner guru - as the final blockages were falling away and allowing access to that which had always been known, within.] 

Next, during the study of the content of the vision, almost as if in some "stream-of-pure-consciousness," one point after another came: 

Maharaj: "At present, 'I am' is in the beingness state. But, when I do not have the knowingness of the 'I am' illusion, then the 'Poornabrahman' or 'Parabrahman' state (Supreme Reality state or Ultimate Reality state) prevails. In the absence of the touch of 'I Amness' I am the total complete, 'Poornabrahman' state, the permanent state. The borderline of beingness and non-beingness is intellect-boggling, because the intellect subsides at that precise location. This borderline is the 'maha-yoga' [Sanskrit, "the great yoga"]. You must be at that borderline, that 'maha-yoga' state'. You descend into the 'godown' of that state which has the title 'birth'." 

Then, regarding the eagle: . . . at the end of the tunnel, you can see nothing other than light. "As the physical fades, there is simply energy . . . light. The body-cum-consciousness ends; the energy remains. So all else is darkness, therefore, except for the light coming from the crystal cave." 

Then, Maharaj again: "The borderline of beingness and non-beingness is intellect-boggling, because the intellect subsides at that precise location." 

Next, "As with beingness and non-beingness, the location of the cave is one of contrasts: the bright light coming from the dome vs. the darkness throughout the rest of the cave. The reflected light of the dome striking the crystals . . . the darkness below. Duality is present, but then . . . ." 

Maharaj: " . . . The intellect subsides at that precise location." 

Then from the vision: To your left and to your right drift millions of forms, and on closer inspection, You see that they are . . . You! Each looks to be a clone maybe a transparent clone but a clone nevertheless of You! 


Followed by: "Again, though, the capacity for understanding remains even at that point. Yet it is something beyond that capacity that knows ... that understands ... which grasps the fact that ... millions of forms ... are . . . You! That is obviously via the inner resource, working as one with the Awareness." 

Then, "Beyond there is the movement to the portal . . . to the light . . . to the Absolute when the Awareness moves totally from a state of beingness to non-beingness and beyond (and reaches that Original State and its Original Nature). At that point, the intellect ends. The borderline has been crossed." 

Some are familiar with the story of Andy Gugar, Jr.'s first visit here when it was suggested that, "if there is a fear of death, then go ahead and die now." 

What became clear via the vision was this: the death of ego - the end of the false sense of personhood and the false sense of being "a spiritual being" - happens at the point where (in the vision) the raven transforms into the no-knowing gull. 

Yet something else can be understood if all of the messages of the vision are understood: the "go ahead and die now" - the "let ego die" message - served as a pointer to other dimensions of the understanding, namely, the various "legs" that were alluded to earlier: 

LEG ONE of "the journey" covers the manifestation of consciousness and then its subsequent corruption / blocking via programming, conditioning, acculturation, and domestication to the point that body identification is reached; 

LEG TWO of "the journey" is covered in the vision and reveals the process of "going back" . . . of reversing out of the relative in the opposite manner by which the coming in happened; 

LEG THREE involves taking all that is Realized and subsequently returning to a condition of sanity and logic and reason during the relative. There is an overlaying of Reality on the relative existence. In so doing, THAT and the AM-ness are one and the remainder of the manifestation will unfold spontaneously and naturally in a way as sane as that adhered to by all living things on the planet (with the key exception of humans); 

Finally, there will be the Unmanifesting, and that will happen in exactly the same was as LEG TWO. The reason the Realized have no "fear of death" is because LEG TWO was a "practice run," so to speak. For the masses, "dying" is a mystery . . . a scary proposition. "What's going to happen?" and "What is to become of me?" 

For the Realized, the answers are clear. For the Realized to look at the approaching event that persons call "dying" is to look at something quite familiar. Why? Because LEG TWO was completed. Because the happening that persons call "dying" is a "been-there-done-that" event among the Realized. 

The response to the "go ahead and die now" advice for the Realized is "already went ahead and 'died' during LEG TWO, thank you very much." 

Therefore, as far as the "What's going to happen?" question, the answer is perfectly clear: Nothing. 

As far as the "What's to become of me?" question, the answer is "Nothing . . . and that's just fine." 

Thus, the Realized can acknowledge what might be called - for the sake of discussion - "LEG FOUR: the Final Unmanifesting of This Specific Speck." 

To be continued. 

Please enter into the silence of contemplation.

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.
