TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

There are six other different perspectives which are understood by "the realized": 

1. "My AM-ness" and this so-called " being" amounts to nothing more than a temporarily-manifested composite unity. 

Maharaj: “When you are thoroughly knowledgeable, you will come to the conclusion that this beingness is also an illusion" and “In order to manifest itself, the consciousness needs a frame, a particular construct in which it can appear.” 

2. That "construct" or "form" or "space" is nothing more than a temporary-manifested combination which includes earth elements. 

3. I was not born, and to have been told that I was is the first lie I unquestioningly believed (with unimaginable results). 

Maharaj: "After the information given to you by the mother, that you are a boy or girl, all your further acquisitions are by hearsay" 

and 

“When the birth is disproved, the great noble meaning of spirituality and the meaning of this world—everything—is disproved" 

and 

“I have no faith in anything which has ever been told, not even what has been told by the Vedas. Only my own experience.” 

4. I was not created by either two parents or a God or by those three working together. 

Maharaj: “From the Absolute no-knowing state, spontaneously, this consciousness ‘I am’ has appeared—there is no reason, no cause.” 

5. I will not die, but I will not live for eternity, either. 

Maharaj: "My true state, which is whole, undifferentiated, is beyond birth and death. I am never bound by my body and mind. I am limitless." 

Of the elements which are cycling to form a temporarily-manifested composite unity which is temporarily housing and cycling air and conscious-energy, what has always been and always shall be are the elements, the air, and the energy. Nothing about the composite unity will remain as such. Not the composite unity and not a gauzy, soul-ly version of the composite unity. 

Over 99% of all humans will ever grasp that pointer. They will never "get it." 

Maharaj: "Both experience and experiencer will disappear" 

and 

"Out of my existence as the Noumenon has come this state of the phenomenal. The homogenous understands the play of the attributes, the projection of the mind, but the play, the projection of the mind, cannot understand the homogeneous." 

Instead, most will believe the lies they have been told about birth, death, and eternal reward or punishment. Others will add on the concepts of karma and reincarnation to the tale. 

Maharaj: "Whatever spiritual things you aspire to know are all happening in this objective world, in the illusion. All this is happening in the objective world. All is dishonesty. There is no truth in this fraud." 

 6. The elemental plant food body is mostly space, and the elements merely provide a temporary form which persons mistakenly identified as "I" and "Me." 

Maharaj: "Prior to taking this form, you were formless; spontaneously the form came, and when the form came there was a natural longing to return to the formless state. When you want to return to the formless, desireless state, then only you come here, to seek what you are. The consciousness has to know the consciousness. When it realizes itself, then only do you return to normal." 

During the early years when Maharaj was catering to a Hindu crowd, he spoke of karma. Later, he rejected all beliefs including belief in karma and reincarnation. 

Maharaj: "A drop of water when it evaporates has become infinite. There is no death for anything. Everything finishes to become infinite. The idea of rebirth is a concept, because for something to be reborn something has to die. What is dead? Nothing is dead. Who is there to be reborn? No one was born." 

Here, the above is explained thusly:

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.
