TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

From yesterday: 

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. 

Some of those parts included: MOKSHA, SAMSKARA, NIRGUNA, VYAKTA, DEHA and NETI-NETI. 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 continue: 

THE THREE PARTS OF ANTAHKARANA 

It was seen that intellect (the capacity to understand) was a necessity; it was understood that "the mind" (the mental body moving through the arch and into the forest) is fictional . . . nothing more than a dream with its movement through trees and across water; and it was understood that belief in ego - in the false "I" and in all of the false non-Selves that were played out in the vision before the Pure Witnessing came into consciousness of ItSelf - had to go. And it was seen that one of the last vestiges of ego was represented by the raven - the one carrying about a sense of being "spiritual" - though "The Seeker" role had to be played for a while longer even after the "Super Religious One" or the "Spiritual Giant" role was discarded. 

MAHA-SATTVA 

The harmonious existence that comes after completing "the journey" to full Realization - which eliminates all fear and provides courage in its place - became understood. Indeed, "The Supreme Harmony" seemed as appropriate a way to describe that post-Realization existence as there is. 

AVATARA 

 It was seen - after seeing the vision reversed - how the incarnation of Awareness happens, how it "descends" into a manifest form that is a composite unity ... a triad of an elemental plant food body with air and temporarily manifested consciousness that can - via Realization - become aware of Awareness and its Original Nature. 

NIRVANA 

The events that are to come someday - and that were previewed in the cave and the dome and beyond - made clear all that is involved with "the final dissolution." And as noted, what was also made clear was that "the final dissolution" will be just fine when it comes. Having "pre-experienced" the final dissolution on LEG TWO, it loses among the Realized all of it power to instill fear and concern and worry (which is exactly what it does among the non-Realized masses when they consider "dissolution" or "death" and the potential for subsequent, eternal "punishment" or near-endless "re-cycling"). 

PRAKRITI 

My Original Nature and Your Original Nature became understood fully. That "cosmic substance" that is merely a specialized form of energy became understood, and the uncaused, not-caused, "no Creator-caused" cause of the phenomenal existence became clear as well. 

ATMA / ATMAN 

 It was seen that there is no self or Self or eternal self-ness or Self-ness when it was seen that the eagle - which eventually dissolves - represented what is referred to as "The True Self" or "The Real Self" and that those merely refer to Pure Witnessing. And there came an understanding of much, much more. 

Those other "parts" are shared and discussed in detail in the thousands of free posts on the Advaita website and in the topic-specific eBooks available below. Some of the other understandings will be discussed in this series in upcoming posts. 

COMING NEXT: "THE ULTIMATE SICKNESS: Causes, Symptoms, Aspects, and Treatment" 

To be continued.

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.
