TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

Specific "reasons" cause persons 

• to be obsessive and compulsive 

• and render them unable to relax 

• and lead them to be driven to go and do and zoom (whether that involves religion; spirituality; employment; "personal relationships"; politicking; reforming; rescuing; seeking love; seeking mass approval and applause and admiration; trying to escape responsibilities; accumulating; finding caretakers; or controlling). 

• We are looking at what causes "the reasons" to manifest 

• and what must happen in order to be freed from their influence. We are looking at what causes "the reasons" to manifest and what must happen in order to be freed from their influence. 

So, to continue: 

Persons obsess, act compulsively, are unable to relax, are fanatical, are driven by subconscious motives, and do whatever authority figures tell them to do - unquestioningly - because of reasons #34: the widespread prevalence nowadays of the Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder which has resulted in almost every person on the planet being fanatical and overly-zealous to one degree or another; and #35: the global prevalence of fanaticism among the masses; and #36: the global prevalence of monomania among the masses; 

The causes of reasons #34, 35, and 36? 

PERSONALITY IDENTIFICATION and / OR CHEMICAL IMBALANCES WITHIN THE PLANT FOOD BODY AS A RESULT OF NOT FOLLOWING THE PROPER FOOD PLAN FOR ONE'S METABOLIC BODY TYPE 

The Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCD) can manifest as a result of the kind of warped programming and conditioning which produces a Personality Type One Perfectionist, the type most likely to exhibit OCD; 

however, Type Threes usually internalizes Type One traits, Type Fours can shift to the Type One, Type Sevens can disintegrate to a Type One when stressed, and Types Nines and Twos can have a Type One "wing" and show the traits of a One. Type Fives often misidentify as Type Ones because they share many common traits. 

Looking at all of those scenarios whereby persons can be set up to exhibit the Type One's OCD tendencies, it should be no surprise that OCD is so widespread. Also, there are physical aspects which can trigger the disorder. 

Moreover, Maharaj spoke of the way that a body can be out of sync and - like a machine that's broken down or not functioning at its maximum potential - will not be "combusting" in the proper sequence.

That is the way that most bodies nowadays are functioning (dysfunctioning) because of the bastardization of the food supply and because some who have a metabolic body type which needs protein or a protein-vegetable combination food plan are following a food plan based in warped religious or spiritual beliefs which require all persons to eat vegetables only. 

That requirement sets up 2/3 of the persons on the planet to adhere to what will prove to be a destructive food plan for them. The other 1/3 can do fine on a veggies-only plan.

Also, OCD often has a neurobiological basis, and when that is the case, treating only the personality-disorder-aspect or only the biological aspect (which can be rooted in genetics as well) will bring no relief.

Some studies nowadays reveal that OCD is among the top four disorders worldwide (the others including phobias, addiction, and major depression). OCD seems to manifest most often in those in the 15-44 age range but can appear early on in childhood (those case likely being ones rooted in personality). 

When alcohol addiction counselors speak of a two-fold illness (body allergy and obsession of the mind) they are referring with the latter to the OCD which is commonplace among those with the Addictive Personality Disorder; yet by introducing the three-fold illness concept (that "addiction is actually a spiritual malady which feeds the two-fold traits above") they inspire the continuation of obsessive thinking and compulsive behavior by encouraging misdirection (meaning they inspire persons to obsess over their spirituality to behave compulsive around recovery group activities rather than obsess over alcohol). 

Obsessing and being compulsive are prerequisites for the manifestation of an unquestioned willingness to stay involved with endless paths and to engage in endless journeys and to adhere to the guidance offered by those in treatment programs who admit that they have no cure for what ails their members. 

Also, persons obsess, act compulsively, are unable to relax, are fanatical, are driven by subconscious motives, and do whatever authority figures tell them to do - unquestioningly - because of reason #37: they want to justify their actions. 

The cause of reason #37: 

PERSONALITY IDENTIFICATION 

Justification is one of many ego-defense mechanisms used to try to sustain a false identification and to engage in the action of trying to show that someone or something is right or reasonable or in the action of trying to declare or make oneself seemingly righteous in the sight of whatever God they believe in. 

Also known as "self-justification," the mechanism is used when a situation happens in which persons' behaviors are inconsistent with their stated "values" or "beliefs." If that hypocrisy or contradictory behavior is pointed out, persons can try to defend, excuse, or rationalize their behavior and deny any and all duplicity and hypocrisy. 

Because ego-defense mechanisms are triggered when an ego-state feels threatened or challenged, then the use of mechanisms cannot happen unless personality identification manifests first. 

If persons are interested in making themselves appear to be righteous in the sight of God and others, then they are set up to be driven by an unquestioned willingness to stay involved with endless paths and to engage in endless journeys and to adhere to the guidance offered by those in treatment programs who admit that they have no cure for what ails their members. 

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.
