TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

A. Apologies for the absence of posts. A computer that had been limping along and repaired time and again for nine years finally crashed completely and it took nearly a week to put together all of the arrangements for a replacement and the necessary programs required. 

1. [See the offer following this post for details on how you can watch a retreat on video which includes a detailed discussion of all seven of the steps on the path as used by Maharaj] 

2. Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "God," the "Son of God," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. See the end of the post for the full meaning and implications of that. 

3. A new video ("Number Ten: Awakening Together Satsang, March 2018") has now been added in the far right column of this page, offering the opportunity to view a recent 2018 satsang session with Floyd being interviewed by Regina and Jacqueline of "The Awakening Together Group." 

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number Forty-Three = 
Having a Propensity for Magical, Supernatural, Unquestioned Beliefs 

MAGICAL, SUPERNATURAL, UNQUESTIONED BELIEFS 

Maharaj made clear that 

(a) the roots of the Ultimate Sickness are centered in the human mind and that 

(b) the cause of humanity’s problems lie in humankind’s long history of being trapped in the Sickness’s “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” and then 

(c) the passing down of those symptoms from one generation to the next. 

As for the parents and relatives and friends and politicians and business leaders and religious leaders and so-called spiritual leaders who often receive so much admiration from the non-realized masses, their primary contribution has mainly involved contaminating their offspring and acquaintances with the Sickness. 

And how are the symptoms of the sickness passed down? Via nonsensical and warped programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing and indoctrination, passed down by persons who are all the while believing that they have really helped their offspring and others who have been “positively influenced” by what they have passed down. 

Moreover, what blocks the masses from seeing the nonsense that was passed down and then questioning it and rejecting it? 

Ego and egotism, as revealed in a response which I have heard hundreds of times when inviting persons to see the “personality liabilities” which are the legacy which was handed down to them: 

“To hell with you, Floyd. They must have done something right because, look at me. I’ve turned out pretty damn good overall.” 

Of the typical programming, conditioning, etc. to which the masses are exposed, the most mentally debilitating beliefs passed down involve: 

1. Having “faith” in things unseen; 

2. Believing anything and everything told to them by “authority figures” without questioning any of it; and 

3. Therefore, developing a set of belief systems which are all based in nonsense and ignorance but are held in the highest possible esteem. 

And what are the relative effects of such gullibility, unwariness, blind acceptance, naiveté, and simplicity: 

A. Being fooled; 

B. Being used; 

C. Being hoodwinked; 

D. Being duped; 

E. Being conned; 

F. Being deceived; 

G. Being bamboozled; and, therefore, 

H. Constantly being disturbed, angry, enraged, infuriated, and incensed. 

None of that is a call to hate those driven by ignorance and insanity, yet it is an invitation to question the lies which are constantly being broadcast and believed and accepted as fact and truth. 

Maharaj invited seekers to question everything, including his words. The truth cannot be stated, but one can point to the false which is to be seen as false and then discarded. 

Who is least likely to do that? 

Those who have been programmed to think magically; to believe that there are powers - or that there is a Power - in another world who can be called on to solve all relative problems in “this world”;

those who have been deceived into believing that there are either eternal rewards or eternal punishments which await them post-manifestation; and those intimidated into believing that eternal damnation awaits those who do not have unquestioning faith in said powers or Power. 

After Yeshu’a (“Jesus”) was introduced to non-duality, he reportedly said, “A dual-minded person is unstable in all ways.” What he understood was that the key symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness - which Maharaj would later identity as “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” - cannot be compartmentalized. Meaning?

If one is driven by “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” in terms of the religious or spiritual beliefs they hold most dear, then they will also be driven by “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” in terms of their political beliefs; 

they will be driven by “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” in terms of their beliefs about finances; they will also be driven by “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” in terms of their beliefs about what can be rightfully expected from partners in business or in “personal” relationships; 

and they will also be driven by “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity” in terms of how much respect and admiration and regard and value and appreciation and influence they think they deserve.

Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "God," the "Son of God," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. 

THE EXPLANATION 

If looked at as nouns, they point to illusions and are, therefore, a total waste of time to even discuss; if looked at as verbs which are resulting in certain sane but rare behaviors among humanity, then they are worthy of some attention during the relative existence. 

Meaning? There are members of certain groups who say things such as "My concept of God in the past was of a weak God, an absentee God, A Santa Claus-type God, a mean, punishing, vindictive God, etc. Today, I am in close contact with a loving and caring God whom I worship and praise and glorify and give thanks to." 

The reply to that usually goes like this: "If you are in contact with a God that wants to be worshiped and praised and glorified, then you're dealing with someone like yourself - a narcissist - and hanging out with narcissists will never bring an end to your narcissism (that narcissism evidenced by the fact that you think you are "godly"). 

Next, in the phrase 'loving and caring God,' any supposed God that truly had her or his act together would tell you that the totally irrelevant part of that phrase is 'God' and that the only part that is relevant is the "loving and caring" part. 

"That is, a non-narcissistic god / goddess would say, "I care not an iota about being worshiped and praised and glorified by you or anyone else. How arrogant and insecure and needy would I have to be to want that? Forget the man-made, dreamed up noun 'God' and focus on the 'God as a verb' understanding and then go forth and let loving and caring be verbs - not adjectives - and let them generate the act of love and the act of caring and let those actions manifest through you." 

Yeshu'a (Jesus) and Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis were spot on: 

"No one shall ever see 'the kingdom of heaven.' It is within" 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and earth shall fade away." 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and hell are not geographic places 
but are states of mind, nothing more than 
concepts dreamed up by men." 
--Pope John Paul II 

"There is no hell." 
--Pope Francis, the current pope 
in an interview with journalist Eugenio Scalfari, 
a writer used by the Pope to issue off the record 
teachings which become a part of the Papal Magisterium. 

[That said, would that the popes who have shown the courage to reject a core concept of their dogma - namely, "hell" - would find the additional courage required to question the very existence of their institution in light of the centuries-long cover-up of their history of raping children and in light of the mental and emotional and psychological scarring of billions of their members past and present. 

And that need for courage also applies as questions need to be asked about why so many other sky cults are still being supported and allowed to continue to exist as well. When certain types of programming and conditioning have been shown to blind the masses, they should end. Will they? Not likely. Why? 

Because what the masses think and say and do is most influenced by the international crime families which hold sway over the masses as criminals conduct their planet-wide operations. What are the major international crime families and which are the most influential and have the largest memberships? 

The Mafia / La Cosa Nostra; the Catholic Church (with it 1.2 billion followers); Protestant and Evangelical Churches (with over 1.2 billion followers) like the one I was raised in where the youth director molested and sexually assaulted young girls; big business which has long created environments in which people have been abused; powerful political bodies like the U.S. Congress, etc., etc., etc.) 

With all of those crime families, neither the followers nor the leadership ever voluntarily step down or shut down their criminal activities. Be they gangs, organized crime families, religions, big business, politicians, etc., they all want control and they all want power and they all want money, and nothing internal will interfere with the driving forces at play. 

The masses must demand that all those in charge must step down and their groups and institutions must shut down, and there's the real problem because the continuation of their crimes are enabled not as much by the people running such crime organizations as they are enabled by the masses of people who - wanting some perceived "payoff" - remain involved with them and give them money and support them and aid and abet the continued existence of those criminal enterprises and thus facilitate the ability of church criminals and political criminals and other types of criminals to continue to commit their crimes.]

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number Forty-Two = 
Being Driven by What Maharaj called "Ignorance, Stupidity, and Insanity" Which Results in the Non-Realized Being Attracted to Ignorance, Stupidity, and Insanity. 

THE CONDITION OF BEING DRIVEN BY "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY" GENERATES AND PERPETUATES AND ATTRACTS IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY 

Possibly as effective as the use of "The Terror Management Theory" to control and manipulative the masses on the Right is, per Azarian, a technique called "High Attentional Engagement." 

[Some speak of "overwhelming them with BS" or "confusing them with a daily - or hourly - plethora of information / lies / whatever" or "sensory overload" or "misdirection."] 

If already in power, some authoritarian demagogues might use threat or intimidation rather than "High Attentional Engagement" to keep their audience: 

Stalin spoke for hours on end, and those who left early were dead by the next day. 

Other authoritarians gave long-winded speeches to a captive audience at the U.N. 

Muammar al-Gaddafi spoke for 96 minutes without stopping. 

Fidel Castro spoke non-stop for three hours on one occasion and four-and-a-half hours on another. 

Members of Kim Jong-un's audiences knows full well that giving anything less than highly-enthusiast applause to the Leader is a capital offense and that the penalty of death will be administered promptly.

However, if not in power but are seeking power and control, some demagogues have a unique ability to use the "High Attentional Engagement" method "to keep an audience engaged," Azarian said. How? 

1. By the "dropping of bombs" throughout their talks. 

Speaking of one candidate, Azarian said: "With him, you are always left wondering what outrageous thing he is going to say or do next. He keeps listeners on the edge of their seat" waiting of course for the next bombshell. 

The more offensive or outrageous his comments, the better to such audiences who will forgive or ignore anything their candidate says as long as he entertains them. 

And that is the next technique: 

2. Tailor a message that appeals to the part of the masses who are most driven by ignorance. They'll be less concerned with detail, facts, truth, policy, etc. and far more concerned with being entertained

Azarian notes that currently in the U.S., the masses are addicted to entertainment and "reality" TV shows (where outrageous talk and bizarre, anti-social behaviors and chaos and conflict have been normalized ). 

What can be done when a large percentage of the populous reaches that state? Azarian's take is not comforting. He said . . . 

"As a cognitive neuroscientist, it grieves me to say that there may be nothing we can do. The overwhelming majority of these people may be beyond reach, at least in the short term." 

Here, it is noted that, historically, the "ignorance, stupidity, insanity" pendulum moves slowly but it usually moves. 

"Dark ages" have usually been followed by periods of enlightenment, but periods of enlightenment have always been followed by the masses retreating once more into darkness. 

That said, Maharaj was predicting by the 1980's that the chance of widespread enlightenment was almost nil and that only a handful will ever be in the light at any given times. 

For you, it can be enough if you see that a coiled up rope is not a snake as long as you can also look at snakes and see that they are not mere coils of ropes.

THE CONDITION OF BEING DRIVEN BY "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY" GENERATES AND PERPETUATES AND ATTRACTS IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY 

Yesterday: 

We saw Azarian note that "a well-supported theory from social psychology called 'Terror Management Theory,' explains why fear-mongering is doubly effective." 

That applies in child-rearing, schools, police-community interactions, politics, religion, the military, prisons, etc. If you can name it, that "use fear to control mentality" is usually present. 

Azarian: 

"The theory is based on the fact that humans have a unique awareness of their own mortality. The inevitably of one’s death creates existential terror and anxiety that is always residing below the surface."

(See how, once again, here's an area where the non-dual understanding could disarm a mind-based influencer of fear and anger and conflict, were the understanding present. Fear and anger and conflict are neutralized around such concepts as "death," "terror," and "anxiety.") 

"In order to manage this terror, humans adopt cultural worldviews —like religions, political ideologies, and national identities —that act as a buffer by instilling life with meaning and value. 

"'The Terror Management Theory' predicts that when people are reminded of their own mortality, which happens with fear mongering, they will more strongly defend those who share their worldviews and national or ethnic identity, and act out more aggressively towards those who do not. 

"Hundreds of studies have confirmed this hypothesis, and some have specifically shown that triggering thoughts of death tends to shift people towards the right."

That is, it shifts them toward toward conservatism, conservatives, emotional intoxication, and being alarmists and reactionaries.

"Not only do death reminders increase nationalism, they influence actual voting habits in favor of more conservative presidential candidates. And more disturbingly, in a study with American students, scientists found that making mortality salient increased support for extreme military interventions by American forces that could kill thousands of civilians overseas. 

"Interestingly, the effect was present only in conservatives, which can likely be attributed to their heightened fear response. 

"By constantly emphasizing existential threat, political leaders can create a psychological condition that makes the brain respond positively rather than negatively to bigoted statements and divisive rhetoric. 

"For any who have been puzzled over why bigoted and divisive candidates haven’t lost supporters after such highly offensive comments need look no further than "The Terror Management Theory." 

The wisdom of Maharaj once again is on display: the combination of (1) the non-dual understanding and (2) what science reveals can explain what is at the root of the most bizarre and illogical and irrational human thoughts and words and actions.

Being Driven by What Maharaj called "Ignorance, Stupidity, and Insanity" Which Results in the Non-Realized Being Attracted to Ignorance, Stupidity, and Insanity. 

THE CONDITION OF BEING DRIVEN BY "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY" GENERATES AND PERPETUATES AND ATTRACTS IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY 

So what did the content of yesterday's post have to do with the non-dual understanding which Maharaj came to in the end? 

He advised seekers to look to science to find the facts which explain the non-dual understanding which makes clear what is happening in the relative existence (that is, throughout the AM-ness) as well as which happens - and cannot possibly happen - post-manifestation (that is, what is involved with the THAT-ness). 

Many want to take the summative statement of non-duality ("I AM THAT; I AM") and cast aside the "I AM" part, focus only on the "THAT-ness," assume an Identity from a long list of supposedly Special Identifications, then mentally dissociate from the reality of the AM-ness and move into Foo Foo Land for the remainder of the relative existence. 

So their plan endorses dissociation from the reality of the AM-ness and the relative issues which impact humans. Maharaj understood that a failure to understand, to be driven by the key symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness ("ignorance, stupidity, and insanity," he said) will result in the misery and suffering so evident throughout the relative existence of most persons. 

He also said it is the task of the non-dual guide to alleviate such suffering among those who come, seeking the understanding.

As seen yesterday, when ignorance prevails, the misery of failed marriages and broken relationships will be guaranteed to come and can adversely impact those involved for years. 

And when the ignorance and insanity which are rooted in an absence of understanding prevails, the masses will choose leaders who tout duality-based separation by race and sexual preference and economic level and social level, emphasizing the "inferiority" of those who have been assigned the lesser status of "the other." 

As always, only chaos can eventually result. 

So yesterday, following Maharaj's counsel, (A) some of the factors which contribute to humankind's suffering and misery were noted and then (B) - as instructed - science was turned to in order to understand some of the root causes and then address them. 

To that end, we turned to the wisdom of two men versed in the science of the mind

Bobby Azarian, Ph.D., who is a cognitive neuroscientist affiliated with George Mason University 

and 

David Alan Dunning, an American social psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Michigan. 

And what was revealed: 

Nowhere in their research regarding the causes of human misery and suffering (nor in the potential treatment for human misery and suffering) did the research reveal that more religious dogma would take care of the problems; nor did their research reveal that being more spiritual would address humankind's issues. 

Instead, their research and that of other researchers revealed that the problems of humanity are rooted in issues involving the mind and personality disorders. 

Of course Maharaj beat them to that conclusion decades earlier, but now the science is there to support the pointers, just as Maharaj predicted. 

So what was seen is The Dunning-Kruger Effect which explains the role ignorance plays among persons who are not just misinformed but who are completely unaware that they are misinformed." 

The role personality plays was seen in that those with "The Narcissistic Personality Disorder," "The Sociopathic Personality Disorder," and "The Psychopathic Personality Disorder" support leaders who are narcissistic, sociopathic, and psychopathic. 

Dunning showed that "the intelligence which is required to be effective at a task is often the same quality needed to recognize that one is not effective at that task so, if one lacks such intelligence, one remains ignorant that one is not effective at the task. This includes political judgment.” 

Azarian added, "Essentially, they’re not smart enough to realize they’re dumb." 

He also showed that science has unequivocally shown that "a conservative's brain" (or "mind") has an exaggerated fear response when faced with stimuli that may be perceived as threatening 

and 

how the 50% or so in a population who have that conservative mind can be easily manipulated by tapping into their fears and aggravating them. 

Azarian also notes that - as long as a leader continues his fear-mongering by constantly identifying some "others" as a potential danger - many conservative brains will . . . 

"involuntarily light up like light bulbs being controlled by a switch. Fear keeps followers energized and focused on safety. And when persons think they have found a protector, they become less concerned with remarks that would normally be seen as highly offensive." 

Next, Azarian notes that "a well-supported theory from social psychology called "Terror Management Theory," explains why fear-mongering is doubly effective. 

More on that tomorrow. 

The point for now is that it should be clear how much of the BS throughout the relative existence is rooted in ignorance, insanity, mental mis-wiring, and the effects of exposing minds to faulty and nonsensical programming, conditioning, etc.

In addition to the five non-duality books made available without charge by Andy Gugar, Jr. (see “FREEBIES” above), you can now access nearly 3,300 posts for any topics of interest to you. 

Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "God," the "Son of God," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. 

THE EXPLANATION 

If looked at as nouns, they point to illusions and are, therefore, a total waste of time to even discuss; if looked at as verbs which are resulting in certain sane but rare behaviors among humanity, then they are worthy of some attention during the relative existence. 

Meaning? There are members of certain groups who say things such as "My concept of God in the past was of a weak God, an absentee God, A Santa Claus-type God, a mean, punishing, vindictive God, etc. Today, I am in close contact with a loving and caring God whom I worship and praise and glorify and give thanks to." 

The reply to that usually goes like this: "If you are in contact with a God that wants to be worshipped and praised and glorified, then you're dealing with someone like yourself - a narcissist - and hanging out with narcissists will never bring an end to your narcissism (that narcissism evidenced by the fact that you think you are "godly"). 

Next, in the phrase 'loving and caring God,' any supposed God that truly had her or his act together would tell you that the totally irrelevant part of that phrase is 'God' and that the only part that is relevant is the "loving and caring" part. 

"That is, a non-narcissistic god / goddess would say, "I care not an iota about being worshipped and praised and glorified by you or anyone else. How arrogant and insecure and needy would I have to be to want that? Forget the man-made, dreamed up noun 'God' and focus on the 'God as a verb' understanding and then go forth and let loving and caring be verbs - not adjectives - and let them generate the act of love and the act of caring and let those actions manifest through you." 

Yeshu'a (Jesus) and Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis were spot on: 

"No one shall ever see 'the kingdom of heaven.' It is within" 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and earth shall fade away." 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and 

"Heaven and hell are not geographic places 
but are states of mind, nothing more than 
concepts dreamed up by men." 
--Pope John Paul II 

"There is no hell." 
--Pope Francis, the current pope 
in an interview with journalist Eugenio Scalfari, 
a writer used by the Pope to issue off the record 
teachings which become a part of the Papal Magisterium. 

[That said, would that the popes who have shown the courage to reject a core concept of their dogma - namely, "hell" - would find the additional courage required to question the very existence of their institution in light of the centuries-long cover-up of their history of raping children and in light of the mental and emotional and psychological scarring of billions of their members past and present. 

And that need for courage also applies as questions need to be asked about why so many other sky cults are still being supported and allowed to continue to exist as well. When certain types of programming and conditioning have been shown to blind the masses, they should end. Will they? Not likely. Why? 

Because what the masses think and say and do is most influenced by the international crime families which hold sway over the masses as criminals conduct their planet-wide operations. What are the major international crime families and which are the most influential and have the largest memberships? 

The Mafia / La Cosa Nostra; the Catholic Church (with it 1.2 billion followers); Protestant and Evangelical Churches (with over 1.2 billion followers) like the one I was raised in where the youth director molested and sexually assaulted young girls; big business which has long created environments in which people have been abused; powerful political bodies like the U.S. Congress, etc., etc., etc.) 

With all of those crime families, neither the followers nor the leadership ever voluntarily step down or shut down their criminal activities. Be they gangs, organized crime families, religions, big business, politicians, etc., they all want control and they all want power and they all want money, and nothing internal will interfere with the driving forces at play. 

The masses must demand that all those in charge must step down and their groups and institutions must shut down, and there's the real problem because the continuation of their crimes are enabled not as much by the people running such crime organizations as they are enabled by the masses of people who - wanting some perceived "payoff" - remain involved with them and give them money and support them and aid and abet the continued existence of those criminal enterprises and thus facilitate the ability of church criminals and political criminals and other types of criminals to continue to commit their crimes.]

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number Forty-One = 
Being Driven by What Maharaj called "Ignorance, Stupidity, and Insanity" Which Results in the Non-Realized Being Attracted to Ignorance, Stupidity, and Insanity. 

IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY GENERATES AND PERPETUATES AND ATTRACTS IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY 

THE IMPACT OF IGNORANCE 

It is a well-known fact among many marriage counselors I've known over the years that a little-discussed but highly-relevant problem-generator in relationships involves a disparity in educational level. 

[That is far from a non-dual take on relationship problems wherein the discussion involves how much learned ignorance one or the other party in a relationship has accumulated, education levels notwithstanding.] 

Some facts about this relative issue: 

*Prior to the 1940's, the disparity in the educational levels of the two parties in a marriage was not a significant issue in terms of the viability of their union. 

*Then, that began to change. 

*The highest level of education an individual completes—called ‘educational attainment’ by sociologists and other researchers—has been correlated with a huge number of other life factors. Income is the most well-known and obvious one. People with college education make more money on an average than those with only a high school diploma or less. Yet many other important aspects of life are related to educational attainment and the impact on marriages is definitely one of them. 

*College-educated women have an almost eight-in-ten chance of still being married after two decades. 

*78% of college-educated women who married after the 1900's can expect their marriages to last at least 20 years. 

*(Among women who have a high school education or less, the share is about half as much - 40% instead of 78%.) 

*Roughly two-thirds (65%) of men with a bachelor’s degree could expect that, if they marry, their first marriage will last 20 years or longer. 

Consider these pairings by "differentiation in educational levels" in the two people in a marriage: 

No high school diploma paired with a partner with no high school diploma: shorter than average marriage and very high chance of divorce 

No high school diploma paired with partner with high school diploma: shorter than average marriage and higher chance of divorce. 

No high school diploma paired with partner with college degree: shorter than average marriage and much higher chance of divorce. 

No high school diploma paired with partner with advanced college degree: shorter than average marriage and very high chance of divorce. 

High school diploma paired with partner with college degree or advance college degree: also very high chance of divorce and far shorter than average marriage 

The point: there is a correlation between any form of ignorance and the likelihood of relative problems, including "relationship" problems. 

Part of what is also at play with the educational disparity / higher divorce ratios are the educational level / financial well-being ratios. Financial problems are a key driver of divorce, and higher education levels usually lead to higher income and fewer financial problems. 

But a variety of studies of a variety of categories, there are indicators that ignorance is an impediment to healthy relationship, whether those involve a partnership, a marriage, state level issues, national level issues, or international levels issues. 

THE IMPACT OF INSANITY 

When some look at the impact of insanity on the relative existence of the masses, some have commented on the propensity that humans have long had for "cutting off their noses to spite their faces" . . . for being self-defeating in terms of what they do. 

One comment is applicable in describing what has happened in elections all the way from the German population's early support of Hitler and his "Super Race" / white supremacy beliefs 

right up to 

the current wave of voters around the globe who are supporting candidates with similar duality-based belief systems which tout "Super Race" / white supremacy beliefs. 

That comment: “What he did was he fired up the crazies.” 

More specifically, it is clear now that Hitler and Mussolini were both narcissistic sociopaths and psychopaths whose influence impacted people all around the globe. 

The same applies to those elected to office more recently in national elections who are narcissistic sociopaths and psychopaths and whose influence is impacting people all around the globe. 

"Crazy" supporters is a term from the vernacular; the more clinical explanation is that certain leaders are evidencing the presence of such disorders as "The Narcissistic Personality Disorder," "The Sociopathic Personality Disorder," and "The Psychopathic Personality Disorder," and many of those being witnessed nowadays have moved beyond a neurotic level and have reached a psychotic level. 

And when narcissists and sociopaths and psychopaths hear a narcissist and sociopath and psychopath speaking, their "ears perk up" because they can relate to what they are hearing; thus, narcissistic sociopaths and psychopaths attract narcissistic, sociopathic, and psychopathic supporters.

It has been noted here on occasion that "crazy cannot spot crazy." 

However, crazy can subconsciously relate to crazy. 

Bobby Azarian, Ph.D. notes that it might be the case that many who support "crazies" do so because of ignorance, pointing out that ignorance-driven supporters are under-informed or misinformed about the issues at hand. 

Yet he goes on to explain "The Dunning-Kruger Effect" and its impact, saying: 

"The Dunning-Kruger Effect explains that the problem isn’t just that they are misinformed; it’s that they are completely unaware that they are misinformed. This creates a double burden." 

When Maharaj explained that intelligence is required for realization, he was referring to intelligence as being "the capacity to understand." 

Psychologist David Dunning said that "the intelligence which is required to be effective at a task is often the same quality needed to recognize that one is not effective at that task" 

and 

"if one lacks such intelligence, one remains ignorant that one is not effective at the task. This includes political judgment.” 

Azarian added, "Essentially, they’re not smart enough to realize they’re dumb." 

He added, "But that’s the nature of the Dunning-Kruger Effect — their ignorance is completely invisible to them."

The same applies when one’s insanity is completely invisible to them.

Studies have also shown that from Hitler to the present, the support for ignorance-and-insanity-driven candidates has been strongest among "the right or "The Far Right" (a.k.a., "conservatives.") 

Maharaj said that science would advance someday to the point that it will provide explanations and support and insight into non-dual understandings about things happening throughout the relative existence as well as things happening on a non-relative level. 

Studies now explain the phenomenon which Azarian addresses, and he shared some of the studies and their results: 

"Science has unequivocally shown that the conservative brain has an exaggerated fear response when faced with stimuli that may be perceived as threatening. 

"A 2008 study in the journal Science found that conservatives have a stronger physiological reaction to startling noises and graphic images compared to liberals. 

"A brain-imaging study published in Current Biology revealed that those who lean right politically tend to have a larger amygdala — a structure that is electrically active during states of fear and anxiety. 

"And a 2014 fMRI study found that it is possible to predict whether someone is a liberal or conservative simply by looking at their brain activity while they view threatening or disgusting images, such as mutilated bodies. 

"Specifically, the brains of self-identified conservatives generated more activity overall in response to the disturbing images." 

In short, conservative types are more often emotionally-intoxicated and more easily riled and disturbed.

The realized understand (a) the relative dangers involved with abiding in a state of emotional intoxication and understand that (b) the relative dangers are directly linked to the ignorance and insanity which come with the Ultimate Sickness and which Maharaj warned seekers about. 

As for those who have supported the planet's Hitlers and Mussolinis and their modern-day counterparts, Azarian explains that fear (which non-dualists understand is rooted in false personality identities) inspires unbridled loyalty in supporters because "their brain responses are automatic and not influenced by logic or reason."

Politicians and religious leaders and mates alike have long understood that if one wants loyalty which can survive a politician's or religious leader's or a mate's lack of logic and reason, simply instill fear and insecurity - which will also whip up a huge dose of anger - and then the loyalty they seek will remain intact.

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.
