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.] 

To review:

LEG ONE - the "coming in," the manifesting 

LEG TWO = the "going back" (the shifting away from identifications and going back and witnessing purely the original state, as happens via moving along the Seven Step "Path" and as illustrated in "The Vision")

LEG THREE = the "coming back" to the relative existence, to the IS-ness, but this time without the programming, conditioning, etc. which happened during LEG ONE 

LEG FOUR = taking mahasamadhi, the final unmanifesting of "floyd," of "you," of all composite unities eventually

[Continued from previous post

The point regarding the "legs": every human will undergo LEG ONE and LEG FOUR. The Realized will undergo LEGS ONE, TWO and THREE and then eventually LEG FOUR. 

Ultimately, therefore, none of this matters "in the end." All "ends up the same." See? No difference. 

"So why Realize at all, then?" some ask. "Why even undergo LEGS TWO and THREE?" 

The answer: because that does involve a difference, the difference being a post-LEG TWO and post-LEG THREE relative existence that is no longer marked and marred by what Maharaj called "ignorance, stupidity, insanity" or by excessive, unmet desires and excessive fear. 

Instead, what marks the remainder of the relative existence is wisdom, reason, logic, sanity and Love. That and that alone is the only grounds for seeking Realization and for then overlaying it on the relative. 

So that's much of what came via a study of the content of the vision. What was also seen were "The Degrees of Separation from Reality" that result when the "coming in" process is exposed to programming, conditioning, acculturation, domestication, indoctrination, and brainwashing. 

Moreover, what was seen were the exact steps - steps which must be completed in an exact manner - in order to follow Maharaj's advice in this regard, namely: 

“. . .You should go back, reverse, to the source" 

and 

“Follow the same path by which you came.” 

Finally, once the understanding of the functioning of the totality came, then all sorts of others parts of the teachings that I had been exposed to - but which I did not grasp either fully or at all - suddenly made sense. Looking back over some of those parts, this was seen in regards to those: 

MOKSHA 

Moving through the dome and returning to an energy-only form which maintained the capacity to understand long enough to see the functioning of the totality before final dissolution made clear what "moksha" - the emancipation and liberation - was all about: there was no sense of personhood remaining, no sense of self, no sense of Self, no sense of any worldly existence or post-worldly existence remaining. After the subsequent post-Realization third leg "return" to reality, the relative existence (which is then seen for what it really is and as it truly is) was also marked by that same freedom and liberation, unfolding spontaneously now with no sense of personhood remaining, no sense of self, no sense of Self, no sense of any worldly or other-worldly existence remaining. 

SAMSKARA 

The second (mental) step in the vision made clear that memories, samskaras, are totally fictional. 

NIRGUNA 

After the "going back" via the vision and then "the coming back" via the third leg, the ability to function as that which is no longer conditioned ("The Unconditioned") was not just understood. It has manifested fully, alongside "The No Longer Programmed," "The No Longer Domesticated," "The No Longer Acculturated," "The No Longer Indoctrinated," "The No Longer Brainwashed," "The No Longer Personal," and "The No Longer Identifiable With Any Words"; thus: 

Lao Tzu: "The Tao which can be expressed in words is not the eternal Tao; the name which can be uttered is not its eternal name." Bingo, Lao. 

VYAKTA

The "unmanifested" was finally understood and has since been explained here in this manner: Unmanifesting is the movement of consciousness (which was temporarily manifested into a space) back into that "field of conscious-energy" from which it came. Some speak of three bodies to help students picture the movement. Consider the gross body to be the space housing manifested consciousness that remained outside the arch in the vision; take the subtle body to represent something shifting beyond the personal, gross body in the cave; and take the causal body evolving into the light to correspond to the transpersonal stage that precedes total transcendence to the Unmanifest . . . to the no-body and no-mind Reality. In Eastern teachings, the causal body is often considered to be the vehicle used to reach the "higher plane." Some speak of phenomenal and noumenal (i.e., that which is understood without the use of the basic senses). 

DEHA 

Deha was understood as the physical body which was left outside the arch during the "going back" stage and which the conscious-energy "re-enters" in its re-purified form after the third leg is completed and after Reality is overlaid on the relative; then, the body-cum-pure-unblocked-consciousness moves throughout the remainder of the manifestation with the absence of ignorance, stupidity and insanity and with the presence of a pure sense of presence, of logic, of reason, of understanding. 

NETI-NETI 

The vision made clear through its various stages of dissolution that there is nothing that can be accurately said to be either "this" or "that." Like someone who had been senselessly dragging along a bag of rocks all of his or her life, each step on "the path" allows for the discarding of part of that extra, needless weight - the discarding of another weighty belief, of another weighty role being played - until eventually there were no more questions remaining about "Am I the self or the Self?" or "Am I ultimately some Supreme Self or not?" 

All such questions were done with, ending with the understanding of "Neti-Neti" and all the rest of what was revealed via the vision. 

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.
