TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

[You are being given access into the consciousness "in real time" in order to see exactly how the understanding unfolded, step-by-step, as every part of the vision - and The Understanding - eventually became clear. 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, it was asked: "So what is the deal with the raven ending and manifesting as a gull" and then "What is the significance of the gull crashing into an eagle and becoming . . . that?" 

It was already understood that the eagle sees far better than humans - that persons look at things every day and do not know that what appears to be seen is not what it appears to be at all while the eagle, by contrast, can see a rabbit from two miles away and knows exactly what it: a "carrier" of the consciousness that is required for the eagle to replenish its ever-coming-and-going quantities of conscious-energy in its body-cum-consciousness, a specialized energy supply which must be constantly replenished through eating (as with all "living things"). 

So the eagle is known for its keen eyesight - its ability to see clearly and to see things that many other creatures miss. It also often symbolizes immortality

Then came this: "Clear seeing now as well as immortal . . . everlasting. Hummm. So what might that mean to the non-dualist? Let's see. Might that symbolize [a] the conscious-energy (which - when unblocked - makes clear seeing / Pure Witnessing possible during the Am-ness) and also [b] the everlasting Awareness (which is not aware of ItSelf prior to consciousness and post-consciousness but can be aware of ItSelf now during the manifestation)? 

"So the eagle must symbolize sharp focus and clear vision and judging properly what it sees (as is the case with the Realized that see things the way they actually are) rather than seeing nothing as it is (as is the case with the non-Realized)." 

Immediately, another flash ... another aha moment: "So non-Realized persons would represent subject-object witnesses while the eagle must represent the 'Pure Witness,' so the True Self during the manifestation of unblocked consciousness is . . . the Pure Witness!" 

Then this came: "No. Wait. Not the 'Pure Witness' but 'Pure Witnessing.' There's nothing personal, so there's no witness or Witness. There's just subject-object witnessing or Pure Witnessing. As with the eagle, that Witnessing happens in a 'keen and clear manner with a sharper focus and more accurate perception that used among the masses.' 

"Therefore, the eagle must represent the Real Self / Pure Witnessing during the manifestation. But Pure Witnessing at some point will end as far as this manifestation is concerned (but where or when)? Wait . . . would that be at the borderline? When the unmanifesting nears that place from which it first began its movement into the realm of the manifested? Triple wow! I knew for some reason that the content of the vision had to be written down as soon as I awoke, but I had no notion about why . . . until now. 

"So the eagle, which often symbolizes immortality, is the essence of both the 'AM-ness' and the 'THAT-ness': prior to manifestation, it is That Awareness which is not aware of, just as is the case post-manifestation. Manifested, that energy evolves / devolves into the consciousness which is soon blocked; that blocked consciousness practices subject-object witnessing as a result of its propensity for conscious-of-ness, which then can - if Realization happens - become aware of Awareness and its Original Nature and the means by which abidance as THAT can happen now! Yes! This is all becoming so freakin' clear!" 

Next, this came: "So the birds are nothing more than versions of the composite unity that persons are, corrupted in the mental state as a result of programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, etc. The body is just an elemental plant food body this is circulating air and that is temporarily-housing the conscious-energy. All nothing more than 'stuff,' temporarily coming together, sure to come apart." 

 Then, "So with these three birds representing different 'bodies' or 'stages,' might they also provide some simpler understanding of the very confusing and convoluted notions about 'the gross, subtle, and causal bodies that Maharaj referenced? Hummm." 

 Now, a pause for you to consider. Are You understanding something about the message being revealed through the symbolism of the three birds which you might not have been aware of before? 

To be continued. 

Please enter into the silence of contemplation.

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.
