TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

A REVIEW AND SUMMATION OF THE KEY UNDERSTANDINGS THAT CAME 
VIA THE VISION 
(Continued

NOTE: An entire glossary - relevant to those early on in the seeking process but including pointers for those far along "the path" - is available in the eBook below entitled "FROM THE I TO THE ABSOLUTE (A Seven-Step Journey to Reality)" which is also included in the paperback four-book anthology entitled, "The Advanced Seekers' Series." 

What is being quoted (in green) are the revelations which 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. Other clarifications that came via the vision follow. 

81. The vision made clear that as if living was going to provide a lifestyle free of the misery that is generated by the desires and fears of personas. ] 

82. During the part of the vision in the cave when this came, 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! what was finally understood was the non-religious, non-spiritual meaning of "atonement." 

83. The vision made clear that it could more rightly be spelled, "at-one-ment." 

84. The vision made clear that atonement had nothing to do with "a reconciliation between humans and an imagined external power" (now seen to have been delusionally conceived by men and bearing the image of men and - in some cases - women and monkeys and elephants, etc.) 

85. What came via the vision instead was a full awareness ... of the at-one-ment, of the Oneness, of the unicity, of the true unity beyond the misperceived multiplicity, of the fact that all is only That and nothing more. 

86. The difference in "love" and Love was made clear. 

87. That moment in the cave made clear that, indeed, "Love is knowing that I am everything."

88. The dissolution of every one of the symbolic birds along the way in conjunction with the final dissolution at the end of the vision made clear that "wisdom is knowing I am nothing." 

89. And it became perfectly clear as the Third Leg of "the journey" unfolded that, indeed, it would be between the two - between Love and Wisdom - that the remainder of my life (that is, the remainder of the relative existence) would move

90. Part of the days and weeks after the vision first came were spent in silent contemplation, and during those periods of silence, more and more became clear. One morning, "beginninglessness" came into consciousness and was understood immediately because the vision had already brought a reminder of the lesson taught in 4th grade science, namely, that "nothing is created and nothing is destroyed - all merely cycles." 

91. Then this came: Whether the particles involved with the formation of "this universe" had "escaped from" or moved beyond the confines of an existing universe and manifested in an area that would be called "our universe" is not relevant. 

92. What became clear was the high level of ignorance at the root of centuries of religion-based theories about "creation" and "this world" and dogmatic arguments about who is supposed to "have dominion over it" (still on-going even today) and at the root of their arguments about whether or not everything revolves around the earth which was believed to be at the center of everything (a belief which was also based in xenophobic arrogance). 

93. It became clear that if all cycles - which all does - then so must universes cycle as well. 

94. Then the words of Maharaj were recalled: "Entire universes are imploding and exploding every moment . . ." and " . . . universes come and go . . . ." 

95. It was also recalled that he said That Which He Is had always been and had, therefore, been present for the imploding and exploding of all universes. 

96. It was clear that none of that need be understood in order to Realize, but it did make clear that one point must be understood if one is to move beyond the third step where the false identities of religious and spiritual roles are played: 

97. Since no creation ever occurred, no "Creator" exists; therefore, in this case, "a negative" can be proved, scientifically. 

98. What cannot be proved is that which is dreamed up by men who present only "their faith" as evidence of their claim that what they have conceptualized into their imaginings-based dogma is true. 

99. At the age of 6 and 7, I was questioning the lessons about God and Jesus and Heaven and Hell and creation and Adam and Eve and mass-murder-by-way-of-a-great-flood and all the other tales being set forth by Miss Myrtle (the Baptist Sunday School teacher). 

100. Finally, with the vision, scientific proof came that the doubts of a 6 or 7-year-old called "floyd" had been based in fact: if all is energy-matter, and if neither energy nor matter can be created or destroyed, then nothing has ever been created; therefore, there is no Creator. End of the story, and the end of ever again having to consider the stories . . . the myths . . . the superstition-based nonsense dreamed up and passed on by hundreds of sky cults over the millennia, many of which are still quite active around the globe even today, thriving with 97% of the earth's population believing their dreamed-up fiction.

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.
