TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS

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

Other clarifications that came via the vision follow. 

186. Via the vision came the end of identity: via the unblocked consciousness - which allowed both an awareness of awareness to manifest and which allowed awareness to be aware of ItSelf and its / Your Original Nature - the illusions of ego and personality were seen to dissolve. 

187. The vision showed that multiplicities of ego-states are taken by persons to make up their so-called "identity." 

188. The vision made clear that the egotism-supported illusions of ego and ego-states which foster a sense of separation and "different-from-ment" and "better-than-ment" all ended in the crystal cave when the Oneness was seen clearly. 

189. In the vision, what came was a condition of being awake, conscious, and aware - a condition that has not left. 

190. With full awareness comes Realization and the end of suffering from the effects of the programming and conditioning and all of the other blockages that prevent the consciousness from Witnessing Purely and seeing Reality. 

191. The vision showed that the movement along the "path" ended belief in any of the former, "bad" roles that had been assumed and played as well as an end to the newer, "good" religious and spiritual roles that had been assumed and played (as the raven's dissolution illustrated). 

192. It showed that the final role to go at the end of the vision was "The Seeker" because an understanding of the functioning of the totality manifest, allowing all seeking to end. 

193. Thus came an end to the assumption of any and all false identities and an end to the beliefs and ideas that accompany them. 

194. It was shown that, as the assumption of any and all false identities ends, those trapped in the step-three-of-seven personas of the "religious person" or the "spiritual person" can finally break free of those ego-states as they stop identifying with a super power, can take the remaining steps on the "journey" to Full Realization, and can live an AS IF-style life of authenticity as a result of the understanding that comes via being free of beliefs and being awake, aware, and conscious. 

195. Only then can misery end and only then can bliss / happiness / contentment / satisfaction begin. 

So there you have it. After years of searching in vain; after finally crossing paths with that speck of consciousness called Maharaj and after years of reading transcripts of his talks and still not "getting it" since he never laid out in order the seven steps he alluded to because his pointers always focused only on the next step to be taken by the specific seeker to whom he was speaking; after finally seeing the exact order in which the "coming in steps" occurred; after seeing the exact order in which the "going back steps" had to occur; and after seeing the exact order in which the "returning steps" occur, 

then only did the understanding come of 

- how the manifesting consciousness becomes blocked or bastardized in every person; 

- how most will have the Ultimate Sickness passed down to them and will go through the entire relative existence while suffering the symptoms of that sickness which Maharaj identified as "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity"; 

and 

- how the few that are willing to question everything which they have ever been told can cast it all aside and can be freed from those symptoms and thereby no longer driven by the collection of nonsense which is stored in almost all minds; 

- can grasp the full meaning Maharaj's pointer that 

"Wisdom is knowing that I am nothing" while "Love is knowing that I am everything"

and 

- can, as a result, abide in the peace which only comes when freed from the influence of the ego-states and egotism which foster a false sense of "different-from-ment"; from a false sense of "better-than-ment"; from a false sense of "separation"; from prejudice and arrogance and discrimination as well as baseless anger and hatred and chauvinism; 

from xenophobia; misogyny; bigotry; intolerance; and injustice; and from misconceptions along with a sense of superiority based in nothing more than unfounded conceit in regards to one's genes or skin color or social class or economic class alongside a host of distortions and delusions. 

As noted at the end of the vision, 

Then, before fading into the perfect peace of rest in the Totality, Your last consciousness is of the process that had moved That Which You Are from the rest state in the Absolute, past the non-being and into being, and then into whatever that True Self was. You see how you came to witness, how the learned ignorance corrupted the pure consciousness of the child state, how spiritual and religious roles were assigned, how mental identities were accumulated, and how dominated the existence was by the physical body's fears and desires. You KNOW. And then, even that dissolves. THAT is all there is. 

Therefore, the wise will see that the non-dual teachings are not an end unto themselves - as some have made them - but are a tool to be used to break the mental chains which bind the masses.

If those chains are broken, then persons can move from away from the bondage of "ignorance," away from the bondage of "stupidity," and away from the bondage of "insanity," just as recommended by such realized sages over the centuries as . . . 

Shakespeare, Thoreau, Gandhi, Maharaj, King, Jr., Mandela and a few others that have spoken with the clarity which comes via the universal consciousness which connects those manifested temporarily with an awareness of awareness. 

Peace, Unity, Love and Light to you.

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.
