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 reason #67: there are nine basic personality types which (1) show up in every human; which (2) subconsciously determine every thought which humans think, determine every word that humans say, and determine every action that humans take; 

which (3) include only one type among those nine types which can inspire non-conformity and authenticity; which (4) include one type which is the most prevalent type (being the primary type of over 50% of the persons on the planet) and which (5) is the type that most inspires conformity and that influences all cultures to reward conformity and that influences all cultures to discourage and punish non-conformity. 

The causes behind reason #67? 

PERSONALITY ASSUMPTION and IGNORANT PROGRAMMING, CONDITIONING, DOMESTICATION, ACCULTURATION, BRAINWASHING AND INDOCTRINATION 

By the age of five or six, children are already showing the traits of all nine of the basic personality types but one type by that age will have "come to the forefront" and developed into what will likely be that child's "primary personality type" for the entire relative existence. The other eight types will show up in varying degrees. 

I have administered thousands of personality inventory tests in order to measure the degree to which each type is manifesting in people. An average score in any given type is "16." A primary type might show up in range of 20 and higher, but I have never seen a single test where any person has a score of zero in any of the nine types; however, there was one unusual case which involved a woman with a history of sociopathic and psychopathic behavior. 

Psychically unhealthy Type Eights often exhibit the Sociopath and / or Psychopathic Personality Disorders, and - sure enough - her test results confirmed the presence of those disorders with one of the highest Type Eight scores ever seen out of the thousands tested. It was a "32." 

As much an anomaly was her Type Two score, which was a "1." That is the lowest score I have ever seen on the thousands of tests administered, but it is understandable since the Type Two is driven to help and care and rescue (in order to be loved). 

By contrast, sociopaths and psychopaths could not care less about other persons or their plight or their pain or suffering; in fact, they often actually find a sadistic joy in seeing others suffer. Is is no surprise that someone with a score in the Type Eight as high as "32" would have a low score in the Two. But a "1"? Now, that is surprising.

The strange part about that high Eight and low Two combination is that the woman is working in what is deemed to be a "helping industry" where the clients who come to the center that she is the head of are suffering from mental and emotional disorders, addictions, depression, anxiety, and a host of other misery-generating disorders and neuroses and psychoses. 

(Are some of you flashing back to Nurse Ratched, the main antagonist of Ken Kesey's novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, in which the patients in her facility were being continuously abused by that cold, cruel, heartless, uncaring tyrant? Ratched exhibited the overbearing, cold-blooded, intimidating, offensive, vicious, and sadistic traits which are typical among psychically-unhealthy, psychologically-disintegrated Type Eights.

It seemed when I first watched the movie in 1975 that the Ratched character might have been overly-exaggerated - and thus unrealistic - until (A) I saw in action the woman with a "32" in the Eight and a "1" in the Type Two who is a mirror image of Ratched and (B) until I lived long enough to deal with several Type Eights in an unfortunately up-close and extended manner.

One thing those abusive types all had in common was the fact that most of them had been abused before becoming abusers, but that understanding is not enough to inspire a willingness to be exposed to the ultimate degree of the Ultimate Sickness which they exhibit.)

So what are the nine basic, first-to-be-adopted types?

The Personality Type One Perfectionist and 

the Type Two Rescuer / Helper / Love Seeker and 

the Type Three Performer / Applause Seeker / Image Maker / Image Maintainer / Inauthentic One and 

the Personality Type Four The Romantic / Individualist / Rebel / Seeker of Isolation (if psychically-unhealthy) or Seeker of Solitude and Authenticity (if psychically-healthy) and 

the Personality Type Five Knowledge Seeker / Knower / Analyst / Avoider / Secretive One / Cerebral One / Philosophical One / Isolated One and 

the Personality Type Six Loyalist / The Dependent One / The Co-Dependent One / The Seeker of Caretakers / The Fear-Based One / The Anxious One and 

the Personality Type Seven Enthusiast / Adventurer / Escapist / Fun Lover / Potential Addict and 

the Personality Type Eight, a.k.a., The Boss / The Bully / The Challenger / The Asserter / The Fighter / The Control Freak / The Aggressor / The Attacker / The Provoker / The Antagonist and 

the Personality Type Nine Indifferent One / The One Obsessed With Avoiding All Disturbances / The Sloth / the Passive-Aggressive One / The Dissociated One. 

As noted, all persons exhibit some degree of each of those personalities. Persons who have high scores in two or three types and minimal scores in the other types are persons who suffered abuse early on which, in turn, shut down their psychic development. Most others have a few higher scores and average scores in the remainder.

The key point about personality identifications is that all persons begin with nine basic personality identifications and then can be assigned or can assume scores more as they become acculturated. It is not unusual for persons by the age of 30 to have played eighty or more roles through the years. 

With each role having its own agenda (an agenda which can be the exact opposite of the agenda of another personality being played simultaneously) it should be clear why Yeshu'a (a.k.a., "Jesus") who was sharing non-dual pointers during the final years said: "A dual-minded person will be unstable in all ways"). 

If one has assumed 30 or 40 or 80 false personal identities, then consider how many opposite directions that person is being pulled in. Then it should be clear why persons by the age of forty or so feel as if they are being "torn apart" and end up being totally unstable as they suffer varying degrees of the insanity which is generated by having the Multiple Personality Disorder and / or the Dissociative Identity Disorder.

The effects of personality identification will be continued tomorrow. 

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.
