TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS

SYMPTOMS 

Yesterday, this pointer was offered: 

With the Ultimate Sickness, "A" can cause symptoms "B," and then symptoms "B" can cause effect "C," and "C" perpetuates another cause, "cause "D." It is near-endless, and that is why Maharaj predicted that only a few people on planet earth at any given moment will "get" the cure that he was offering by way of the Ultimate Medicine (which, in his case, changed from a religion / non-duality compound to a spirituality / non-duality compound to a non-duality / psychological compound after he came to understand that the Sickness is a mind sickness, not a spiritual malady or a too-little-dogma sickness). 

Many sicknesses "run their course," after which otherwise healthy persons return to a state of physical health, (For example, the saying is that "if you do nothing for a cold, it last seven days, but if you do something for it, it will last a week.) 

Additionally, diseases are treated on a daily basis and many persons also return to a state of physical health. Such is seldom the case with the Ultimate Sickness. While there is a treatment and cure for the Sickness, most never find it. In fact, most never seek it because they do not know that they are suffering from the Ultimate Sickness. 

Hells bells, it took Maharaj decades of (a) experimenting with one version of the Ultimate Medicine and then another; (b) then finally seeing clearly that neither had produced any lasting results; (c) and then finally understanding the actual causes and cure after seeing that neither religion nor spirituality provided any lasting effects and after seeing that the Sickness is a mental sickness which requires a psychology-based treatment plan. 

So the case with the Sickness is that causes lead to symptoms and symptoms contribute to more causes, all of which results in a cycle which perpetuates the illness. So, to the specific symptoms:

The "generational aspect" of the Sickness results in these symptoms: persons in many generations of families lose the ability to question the totally false hand-me-down concepts which are passed along. 

Another symptom is the belief in ancient fictional myths and ignorant superstitions which leads to present-day beliefs in fictional and ignorant concepts. 

Relatedly, there is a susceptibility to believing lies because those with the Ultimate Sickness cannot distinguish between the true and the false (that being a result of the distorted thinking which comes with the Sickness).

Another symptom is the willingness to accept without question the nonsense taught via programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing, and indoctrination. 

Next are these symptoms displayed by those with the Ultimate Sickness: anger, a devaluing of peace, a tendency toward violence, a sense of having the right to interfere, intervene, raid, control, and conquer. (More on those below.) 

While the Ultimate Sickness is a racially-non-discriminatory mental illness, now affecting people of all races, it origins can originally be traced to members of the white race, that is, to Aryans (a self-designation which meant "noble" and which reveals where they felt they ranked in a racial hierarchy). Consider "Anglo-Saxon" as another identifier. 

The term "Aryan" was used in Germany's "Nazi Racial Theory" to describe persons corresponding to the "Nordic" physical ideal of Nazi Germany's "Master Race" ideology (which is once more gaining popularity in the U.S., Western Europe, and other regions of the globe). 

While the original roots were primarily in Western Europe, the Iranians also assumed the same beliefs and attitudes as well. The term has also been used to refer to all light-skinned people who lived thousands of years ago in what is now known as Western Europe and Persia (Iran) and India and other parts of Asia.

Aryans have historically displayed another symptom of the Ultimate Sickness as referenced above, namely, a warrior-invader-conqueror mentality based in the sense of entitlement which those with the Ultimate Sickness show, their sense of entitlement marked by a "we have the right to whatever we want and we will take it"  mindset.

Consider what one "Alt-Right" (that is, an Aryan, white supremacist) said recently in that regard. A newspaper account offered the following about what happened at a gathering in Washington, D.C. Saturday before last, of Alt-Right, Aryan, white supremacists. They had gathered to celebrate the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. Their leader is Richard B. Spencer: 


[Spencer and Donald Trump (and his father Fred Trump) have all held a belief in "eugenics" - the belief being that white race genes are superior to all others, that whites should be encouraged to procreate, and that non-whites should be "prevented from breeding" in any way possible.]

Spencer spoke at the end of the Washington, D.C. conference and a newspaper shared his words and reported on what else happened at the event:

Mr. Spencer railed against Jews and quoted Nazi propaganda in the original German. America, he said, belonged to white people, whom he called the “children of the sun,” a race of conquerors and creators who had been marginalized but now, in the era of President-elect Donald J. Trump, were “awakening to their own identity.” 

As he finished his remarks, several audience members had their arms outstretched in a Nazi salute. “Heil the people! Heil victory!" was shouted from the podium and the room shouted it back. 

These are exultant times for the alt-right movement, which was little known until this year, when it embraced Mr. Trump’s campaign and he appeared to embrace it back. “America was, until this last generation, a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity,” Mr. Spencer thundered. “It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us. 

The white race, he added, is “a race that travels forever on an upward path." He said, “To be white is to be a creator, an explorer, a conqueror."

Members of the audience were on their feet as Mr. Spencer described the choice facing white people as to “conquer or die.” 

White identity, Mr. Spencer said, is at the core of both the alt-right movement and the Trump movement. For them, immigration is the most potent mobilizing issue, less for economic reasons than because of the prospect that white Americans will someday represent less than half of the population of the country. 

Now, Mr. Spencer said, it is up to the alt-right to formulate the ideas and policies to guide the new administration. 

So other symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness include believing in a dualistic sense of "separate from" and "apart from, rather than a part of"; a sense of "different-from-ment" which feeds the belief in "better-than-ment"; and a sense of arrogance and conceit and superiority and egotism and self-importance, all of which the non-dual teachings reject. 

Because the Ultimate Sickness leads person to believe that they are seeing differences where no differences exist, to pass on nonsensical beliefs and cling to them, to behave in destructive and self-destructive ways (relatively speaking), and to exhibit the most extreme examples of craziness imaginable, Maharaj made clear that three of the key symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness are "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity." 

And it should be understood that "intelligence" does not hinder the manifestation of "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity" in the least.

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.
