TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS

ADDITIONAL, VERY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES WHICH CAME VIA THE VISION

The vision showed that a body with a mind that formed within a part of a brain is the prerequisite for assuming false identities or for accepting assigned false identities as real. 

It showed that the absorption in the "mind stage" allows for the assumption of "bad" roles and "good" roles. 

It showed that it is at the third step, when religious and spiritual roles are assumed and played, that the entire seven-step "journey" to "full realization" (that is, a total end to a belief in all of the ignorance which has been taught and leartned) usually comes to a halt and is never completed. 

It showed that - if seekers are willing to see that there is far more to the "journey" than replacing old "bad" roles with new "good" roles - then they have a chance to move on along the "path," complete all seven of the steps, and see that all of the nonsense they had been taught is wiped out completely when an understanding of the functioning of the totality comes. 

It is the vision that can reveal the manner in which the totality functions: 

"Functioning" refers to how all in this universe actually operates and how it has always operated and how all that is or was in all universes has functioned and is functioning and will always function.

"Totality" refers to every happening that has ever happened, that is presently happening, and that will eventually happen, infinitely. 

Upon the manifestation of full realization (which the total understanding of the content of the vision can bring), the complete non-dual / nisargan understanding comes of how all has happened and how all happens and how all will forever happen. How inclusive is that understanding? Among all that is understood are the following: 

*** How this universe and all prior universes came to be; 

*** How consciousness manifests in a space or form; 

*** Where You were in the days and weeks prior to "conception"; 

*** Where You Were prior to consciousness and manifestation; 

*** What is relative and What Is Absolute; 

*** Why no external Power or God or Goddesses or "Creator" can exist and how that can be proved scientifically; 

*** Why no truth can be found except within but why a "guide" is required to focus Your search for Truth; 

*** Why you were never born and cannot die; 

*** Why, post-manifestation, there will be no eternal form or body or "you"; 

*** Why all notions of "who-ness" are false: 

*** Why notions about a "Supreme Self" are dualistic, all talk about Oneness notwithstanding; 

*** Why neither eternal reward nor punishment awaits; 

*** Why abiding unnaturally and / or supernaturally is insane and why only natural living is sane; 

*** Why reality is non-dual; 

*** How persons come to believe that they are in the world instead of understanding that "the world" is in them . . . in their "minds"; 

*** Why "memories" about things relative have no validity; 

*** What the difference is between awareness and consciousness; 

*** Why only "the nothingness" is valid, ultimately; 

*** The difference between "love" and "Real Love"; 

*** How to find Real Love in "an unreal world"; 

*** Why most persons fear independence and actually do not prefer it at all over their dependencies and their co-dependencies; 

*** Why there is nothing that is personal; 

*** What Your Original Nature is; 

*** How to move through the relative existence as if dancing lightly; 

*** Why dual-minded persons are unstable in all ways; 

*** Why all things relative are much ado about nothing; 

*** How reality can be overlaid on the relative; 

*** Why "I AM THAT" and "I AM" are not two; 

*** What generates instability; 

*** How to "be stable"; 

*** How personality forms and determines thoughts and words and deeds; 

*** How personality preempts the ability to choose . . . to make choices; 

*** Why belief in an external locus of power and control is fiction; 

*** How role-assumption generates dependency and co-dependency; 

*** What bliss is and what bliss is not; 

*** Why you must be empty before you can be full; 

*** Why there is no such thing as "peace of mind"; 

*** Why there is no "doer"; 

*** Why a "mind" and "wisdom" cannot co-exist within a person; 

*** What the real cause of desire and fear is; 

*** What the difference is between emotions and feelings; 

*** Why freedom is a prerequisite for peace and happiness; 

*** Why You have nothing to do with either "time" or "space" or "form"; 

*** How it is that trillions of persons have been in error regarding their ideas and concepts and beliefs and perceptions and why only a few at any given point in the history of planet earth have seen clearly; 

*** What "The Ultimate Sickness" is and what "The Ultimate Medicine" is; 

*** What the exact steps are that must be taken in order to be free of belief in the false "I" / "I's"; 

*** What the differences are between programming, conditioning, acculturation, domestication, indoctrination, and brainwashing is and what the effects of those are persons;

*** Why no humans have ever "made a baby" or "created a child" or "created a new life"; 

*** What happens when consciousness is no longer manifested; 

*** How all cycles; 

*** How the enculturation process puts persons to sleep even as they are certain that they are awake; 

*** The beginninglessness and the expanse of infinity; 

*** The limitlessness; 

*** Bliss via desirelessness; 

*** The source of all suffering; 

*** Freedom from the pursuit of meaning; 

*** Infinite Cause; 

*** The link between mind and fear; 

*** Why "the mind" is a total illusion; 

*** Why all perceived via "a mind" is false and is illusory; 

*** Why you must be out of your mind to be sane; 

*** Why all knowledge is nothing more than learned ignorance; 

*** Why time and timelines are illusions; 

*** How illusions are taken to be real by persons; 

*** What the Oneness truly is; and

*** What you are not, to name but a portion of what becomes understood. 

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. 

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

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. 

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

With full awareness comes realization and the end of suffering from the effects of the programming and conditioning and all of the other blockages which prevent the consciousness from Witnessing purely and seeing both Reality and reality.. 

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). 

It showed that the final role to go at the end of the vision (after "The Super Religious One" and after "The Spiritual Giant") was "The Super Seeker" because, if an understanding of the functioning of the totality manifests, that allows all seeking to end. 

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

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. 

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

In closing, the reason that Maharaj advised people to stop reading his talks in the book entitled I AM THAT and to listen to his later talks instead was because those earlier talks, for the most part, contained no new or different perspectives from what most religious and / or spiritual persons were sharing.

Only after the vision did an ability come which allowed me to differentiate between the parts of that book which were a result of the universal consciousness speaking vs. the parts which were merely the "parrotings" of a guru and others. 

I read those talks many times and did not find what was being sought, yet there were some unique pointers therein which did offer a preview of the way that Maharaj's evolution - that is, his shifts in perspective - would eventually move him to a different message.

He came to understand that the Ultimate Sickness is not rooted in too-little-dogma so no amount of dogma could address the Sickness; he came to understand that the Ultimate Sickness is not rooted in a "sick spirit" or in "a spiritual malady" so no amount of spirituality or "spiritual exercises" could address the Sickness; 

that the Ultimate Sickness in a sickness of the mind; that "realization" has nothing to do with realizing what is being taught by religions and other such cults and / or in spiritual movements and spiritual programs; that realization is nothing more than a process which leads to being free of belief in the learned ignorance which is presently being taught in all homes and all schools and all cultures; 

that the non-dual endorsement of "de-accumulation" applies first and foremost to what had been accumulated and stored in the mind; that a viable version of the Ultimate Medicine is one which removes what Maharaj called the key symptoms of the Sickness, namely, "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity"; 

and that religious teachings and spiritual teachings do not remove "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity" but - for 5,000 years or more - have been the primary contributors to the accumulated body of the learned ignorance and nonsensical beliefs which have been the source of the Ultimate Sickness and which are now the carriers of the Sickness.

May you find a viable version of the Ultimate Medicine which will treat effectively the Ultimate Sickness which all humans are now guaranteed to contract.

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.
