ANNOUNCEMENTS 

1. Following eye surgery, clear focusing has not returned and eye strain results from anything other than a brief exposure to a computer screen; moreover, two follow up procedures must be arranged to "fine tune" the effects of the surgery; hence, postings may happen sporadically for awhile. 

2. [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] 

3. 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. 

4. 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 Two - 
The Belief That the Drama Being Projected onto Screens (or the Drama Being Acted out on the Stage of the Global Theater of the Lie) is Real and True 

Per Maharaj, "being realized" simply refers to (1) realizing that all of the learned ignorance stored in human minds is nonsense; to (2) discarding it because it is seen to be false; then (3) abiding under the nisargan / natural auspices of the elemental plant food brain rather than under the auspices of a distortion-and-lie-filled mind. 

Also per Maharaj, most of humankind has not realized anything and likely never will. The result? 

It is as if there is a projector inside the head of every non-realized person and the film contains all of the invalid and untrue and unfounded and illogical and worthless and ignorant beliefs which have been placed in human minds as a result of all of the invalid and untrue and unfounded and illogical and worthless and ignorant programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and brainwashing and indoctrination; 

then, that projector is constantly running and projecting onto the screen what I then see as "the world, which so happens to be exactly the way it is as being viewed through our my eyes." 

The fact: there is no world at all. What is being viewed is a series of images on the projected film, and each image involves some false belief which was taught and which is now stored on the imagined-only celluloid which is capable of playing continuously without any consciousness or awareness being required on the part of humans at all. 


Moreover, that film is running on autopilot and is projecting itself onto an imaginary screen which persons only assume to be reality as they watch themselves and others as they go about the business of generating the most outrageous dramas imaginable (and they really are that . . . merely imagined dramas which are taken to be real and so very important). 

Yet the myopic vision, the unclear perspective of non-realized persons, is blocked by a miasma - a cloudy haze - made up of blockages in front of the projector lens which prevents things from being seen as they truly are rather than as they are imagined to be. 

Additionally, in the case of all persons, once their formerly clear film has been scribbled on and cluttered with the invalid and untrue and unfounded and illogical and worthless and ignorant information passed on via distorted and ignorant and insane programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and brainwashing and indoctrination, none of them will ever come to any valid understanding. 

They are unable to decide what goes on the film and what's going to be projected and what they believe they are seeing when they look at what they call "the world" without realizing that they playing no conscious, active part in their own existence after the stage is set for them to step onto the stage of the Theater of the Lie and start sharing the thoughts they were programmed to think and start saying the words they were programmed to say and start taking the actions they were programmed to take. 

While they think they are controlling the drama, they are actually only subconsciously and unconsciously playing the parts which were written for them by their parents and grandparents and other ancestors and by their cultures and by anyone and everyone else who has planted in the script of their minds every bogus concept and idea and belief which they have accepted as truth even though it is all based in lies and distortions and delusions and ignorance and insanity. 

Some might become so tired of the drama and the histrionics that the decide to rewrite what was put on their film, yet that is useless. Whatever they come up with to replace the old writings with new writings, the new writings are still plagued by the same blockages which have prevented them all along from seeing clearly. 

The only sane course is to wipe clean the dirty, distorted film and then leave it that way or to toss out their current film any other films completely. 

Thereafter, natural abidance can happen. 

Otherwise, insanity shall remain because they will continue to believe the nonsense which is recorded on all film and they will continue to believe, insanely, that the drama being acted out on the stage of the global Theater of the Lie is real and true when it's actually all fiction. 

To be continued.

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.]

TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

1. Following eye surgery, clear focusing has not returned and eye strain results from anything other than a brief exposure to a computer screen; moreover, two follow up procedures must be arranged to "fine tune" the effects of the surgery; hence, postings may happen sporadically for awhile. 

2. [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] 

3. 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. 

4. 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." 

To review the evidence of the widespread cases of "individualized" magical thinking and "nationalistic" magical thinking, consider what Maharaj said of thinking, period: 

"I have eaten up the world and I need not think of it anymore" 

and 

"Reach a state of zero concepts" and "stop thinking." 

Consider also what he shared during this exchange: 

Questioner: "How does one go beyond the mind?" 
M: "There are many starting points — they all lead to the same goal. You may begin with selfless work, abandoning the fruits of action; you may then give up thinking." 

To test the potential validity of, or to realize the actual attributes of, whatever comes into consciousness, note this about thoughts: 

1. Among the non-realized masses, thoughts are always of the magical thinking type. 

2. Per Maharaj, the non-realized masses are simply those who have not been freed of learned ignorance and whose thoughts and words and actions are, therefore, being determined and driven by the body of ignorance stored in their minds. 

3. Thoughts come when in a beta or early alpha state and are invalid and untrue and unfounded and illogical and worthless and ignorant by virtue of the fact that they were implanted in "the mind" by the use of invalid and untrue and unfounded and illogical and worthless and ignorant programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing and indoctrination. 

4. As a result, all thinking is always magical and irrational and is often based in ancient myths and superstitions and ignorance which have been passed down for generations and which is presently being passed down all around the globe by persons who are being driven - usually unconsciously - by the symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness which Maharaj identified as "ignorance and stupidity and insanity." 

Thoughts arise from all of the ideas, concepts, impressions, images, opinions, notions, inklings, and suspicions which has been placed in minds by external forces and which can be summarized in one words: "beliefs." 

A vigorous, visceral defense of beliefs can be triggered by hearing someone challenge "your beliefs" which are not yours at all but are "their beliefs" - the beliefs of all who have contributed to the filling of minds with total nonsense / BS / garbage / claptrap by the use of invalid and untrue and unfounded and illogical and worthless and ignorant programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing and indoctrination. 

When false identities (a.k.a., ego-states, personas, personality identifications, roles, stage characters, guises, facades, fronts, faces, etc. which are always supported by a host of false beliefs) suddenly feel threatened when the false beliefs in which they are rooted are contested, that can trigger a desire to defend the beliefs in order to sustain the belief in the false identities which persons are convinced can offer some kind of payoff. 

Maharaj: Surely "you cannot possibly say that you are what you think yourself to be!" 

Most conflict, whether within oneself, in "personal" relationships, in world conflicts, etc., come about because of what persons think themselves to be and then, subsequently, because some dreamed up or assigned or assumed ego-state feels threatened or snubbed or ignored or disrespected. 

What irony that all fighting and hostility and combat and struggles and aggression and wars come about because of (a) the mirages which the masses magically think are real and because of (b) all of the lies and deceptions and self-deceptions which persons magically think are true! Talk about a bunch of BS! 

Maharaj's advice: "Put no faith in the conscious. Nothing you can see, feel, or think is so." 

To continue the review: 

5. Always-worthless thoughts come during the beta and alpha states. 

6. Dreams come while in a delta state. 

7. Visions come while in a theta state. 

8. Most abide in a sleepwalking and sleepwalking manner during the beta or alpha states while actually thinking erroneously that they are fully awake and aware and conscious. 

9. Most do not reach the deep-sleep delta state, and even fewer tap into the theta state. 

As for using anything that is happening in the U.S. as a model, understand that few nations in history have reached the levels of arrogance and egotism and distortion which have always been at the core of a nation which was able to be founded only because of the mass murdering of millions of people. 

Since then, the arrogance has led citizens to believe they are citizens of "God's country." Ronald Reagan was a U.S. President who has long been the right-wing's hero and who was in charge of the nation even as he was lost in the depths of dementia and Alzheimers. He was a major reinforcer of the high levels of xenophobia which have long been typical here. To that end, he said:

"America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere." Fertilizer, anyone?

In his farewell address to the nation, he read these words written by one of his speechwriters: 

"I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still." 

That is total, egotism-based delusion, and certainly not the view of many of his fellow Republicans nowadays. 

While traveling for years in Western Europe as well during a trip to South Africa, the expectation was that I would be an advocate of the U.S. and justify all it has done and continues to do. Years ago while visiting with some in Cape Town, they did not expect to hear this: 

"As much evidence as I have seen here of remaining beliefs regarding the concept of white supremacy; and as much racial discrimination as I have seen that is still present here today; and, as much division and lack of unity as I have observed here, there is far more dedication to white supremacy and far more racial prejudice and far more division and economic suppression and suppression of human rights in the U.S. than here in South Africa. Those have always been the most cherished concepts of the majority and have always been our chief exports." 

I could as easily have said, "Dualistic, magical thinking drives the masses in the U.S. far more than is happening here in South Africa." 

Magical, duality-based thinking prevails globally, and to end it and then allow clear seeing to begin, all thinking must end. But how? Simple:

Reject the fictional content of the mind and abide afterwards under the auspices of the elemental, plant food brain. That is what happens with every living thing on the planet except for humans.

THE SEEDS OF DUALITY WHICH PRODUCE DUALITY'S PROGENY: 
Offspring Number One - 
What Others Have Witnessed about the Popularity of Magical Thinking in the U.S. 

Duality-generated magical thinking is global, but what is called "The U.S." (or, more arrogantly, "America" (ignoring other North American, Central American, and South American nations) - has 

since the time of the U.S. Holocaust when European invaders killed millions of the indigenous peoples 

been one of the largest cesspools of distorted and delusional thinking on the planet.

What have some others witnessed in that regard? 

Sean Illing, in an article entitled "Americans Have a Longstanding Love of Magical Thinking," shared some observations offered by Kurt Andersen, the author of Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire. 

He noted that "The country got its start with people believing that they could create their own world, their own truth”; thus, the present descent into what he calls "anything-goes relativism" marked by "a willingness to buy into delusion and falsehood" should be no surprise. 

His book argues that Americans have always been devoted to the fantastical — from early settlers searching for gold to conspiracy theories about the Freemasons to hustlers like P.T. Barnum and Buffalo Bill." Add to the self-assigned moniker of the U.S. claiming that it is "The Greatest Nation on Earth" and the stage has long been set for unchecked arrogance and egotism and a preference for appearance over substance. Living a lie and manufacturing a "positive but totally false image" has long been the national pastime. 

Illing: "The 1960s, for Andersen, were a particularly pivotal moment because people began to experiment with different ways of understanding the world, which was initially liberating. But 'we became too skeptical, too loose with the truth,' Anderson argues, and 'that came back to bite us in the ass'.” 

Also setting the stage for preferring lies over truth was the spread of the Ultimate Sickness which always brings and spreads the symptoms of that sickness which Maharaj identified as "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity" along with their psychological cousins, gullibility and an ability to be fooled by even bigger fools. 

Maharaj advised: "Give attention to the obstacles created by the foolish mind." 

Illing: "The question is, why? What is it about the American experience, the American character, that cultivated this love of magical thinking? Why are so many of us committed to our own tailored versions of reality?" 

Anderson: "Everything in America is like show business. That's the genesis of the idea that I saw happening as early as the 1800s when I started looking at it. In the 1830s, for example, we had newspapers publishing hoaxes as though they were news and religious evangelists going around the country advertising themselves in newspapers and performing as though it was a night at the theater. 

"This accelerated in the 19th and especially the 20th century with Hollywood and television. America has collapsed the space between entertainment and news, reality and unreality, serious and unserious. This weird cocktail is part of American life, part of our culture and value system." 

He said: "Part of the template I’m trying to provide here is a way for people to see how we might think of movies, the gaming industry, religion, finance, hospitality, real estate, and so many other things as part of the fantasy world we’ve created and live in." The result? "Now, we have a president who is the perfect expression of our disconnectedness from reality." 

Early on, magical thinking and lying and selling a bogus "bill of goods" was implanted in the minds of the masses by lying leaders. In the Constitution, the founders - many of whom were slave-owners - nevertheless proclaimed that "all men are created equal." 

That notion has been perpetuated in this nation for more than 240 years in spite of the fact that owning other (black) humans was legal from the beginning up until the early 1860's, and in spite of the fact that the law explained that when blacks are counted in the census they are to be counted as "three-fifths of a person"; and in spite of the fact that women were not allowed to vote until 1920. 

Yet until recently, the U.S. has continued to give lip service to the founders' talk about equality and liberty for all but has also bombed or otherwise annihilated brown and black people all over the globe; has tolerated the ownership of black-skinned humans; has tolerated the abuse of women; still tolerates the abuse of children by the clergy; and tolerates the shooting of unarmed blacks by the hundreds each year; yet when leaders say that "This is the greatest nation on earth," the heads of the listening citizenry bob up and down in agreement. 

Why is it said that lip service been given "until recently?" Because now, the trend is to follow the example set by the nation's current leadership and to make clear that all people are not equal and that non-whites and non-Christians are not welcome here and are not welcome to come here. 

The duality-based notions of "racial supremacy," "different from," and "better than" now dominant the airways. 

Hypocrisy and blatant lying has never been a deal breaker in the U.S.; instead, they have always been part and parcel of the deal-making among the power brokers, that is, among the nation's political and religious and business leaders.

Indeed, "Americans do have a longstanding love of magical, distorted, delusional thinking; however, the U.S. does not have a monopoly on magical, distorted, and delusional thinking. 

Because the Ultimate Sickness is global, the acceptance and normalization of hypocrisy and blatant lying and racial and religious and economic discrimination and widespread foolishness are also the abnormal norm on the entire planet. 

Some ask, "How can we change that?" The reply: "You cannot. You can only realize (meaning, free yourself of the belief in all 'learned ignorance') and thereby purge yourself of the influence of 'their mind' which is mistakenly thought to be 'your mind.' Then, abide naturally, under the auspices of the brain rather than the mind, the same way that every living thing on the planet abides except for humans."

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 XX"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.]

TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS 

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

1. Following eye surgery, clear focusing has not returned and eye strain results from anything other than a brief exposure to a computer screen; moreover, two follow up procedures must be arranged to "fine tune" the effects of the surgery; hence, postings may happen sporadically for awhile. 

2. [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] 

3. 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. 

4. 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." 

NEXT: BELIEFS, THOUGHTS, DREAMS, VISIONS: IF ONLY ONE WERE TO DESERVE CREDIBILITY AND FULL ATTENTION, WHICH SHOULD IT BE, AND WHY 

A man wrote to ask, "What makes you think that whatever came to you via your vision is any more accurate than whatever comes to me via my beliefs and thoughts and analysis of my dreams?" 

I'll use this venue and time to reply: 

First, as pointed out occasionally on this site throughout the last 13 or so years, there is no such thing as "your beliefs." There are only "their beliefs," beliefs which (1) have been around for thousands of years - dating back to the times when myths and superstitions and ignorance and magical thinking prevailed - and which (2) continue to be passed down to this day by persons trapped in the Ultimate Sickness and trapped in it symptoms which were identified by Maharaj as "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity." 

Thus, the fully realized (which is a term that - per Maharaj - points to persons who have been freed of their learned ignorance) give no credibility to any beliefs. Nor do they give thoughts any standing because they are generated by the adulterated and polluted and poisoned mind which is a storehouse for the "learned ignorance, stupidity, and insanity" which is passed down via adulterated and "ignorant and stupid and insane" programming, conditioning, acculturation, domestication, brainwashing and indoctrination to which almost every human is regularly exposed. 

As for analyzing your dreams, you and all other modern-day, would-be Edgar Cayces are invited to rock and roll and seek clairvoyance and the ability to be psychic in order to join Cayce in acquiring "ESP skills and Spiritual Growth and Meditation skills and learning how to pray effectively and get results"; 

in becoming an expert at healing and understanding what happened to Atlantis and attaining an understanding of the ways and means of supposed reincarnation and in grasping the cause of wars - ignoring the fact that "the cause of all is all";

and  being able to "talk to the spirit of those who passed to the other side" and being able to predict future events by tapping into the "super-conscious mind." 

So what makes that which comes via visions different from beliefs and thoughts and dream content? 

Visions are unique in that they come only when the brain's wave are functioning at one of the five different states or frequencies. While science long discussed four brain wave frequencies, the consensus in many quarters now is that there are five: 

All five - Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma - are measured in cycles per second (Hz) and each has its own set of characteristics representing a specific level of brain activity and a unique state of consciousness. 

1. Beta (14-40Hz) — The Waking Consciousness, Reasoning Wave (supposedly). 

Beta brain waves are associated with what is deemed to be - usually erroneously - that which is assumed to be the "normal" and "waking consciousness" (set in quote marks because most people only think that they are moving through the day with a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning); to the contrary, the fact is that only a few are truly alert, fully awake, absolutely aware, and totally conscious. 

It has been said that "while Beta brain waves are important for effective functioning throughout the day, they also can translate into stress, anxiety and restlessness. The 'voice of Beta' can be described as being that nagging little inner critic that gets louder the higher you go into the range; therefore, with a majority of adults operating at the Beta level, it’s little surprise that stress is a common health problem." 

2. Alpha (7.5-14Hz) — The Deep Relaxation Wave 

Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation and usually when the eyes are closed, when you’re slipping into a daydream or during light meditation. 

"The voice of Alpha" is said to be your intuition, which becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to 7.5Hz. 

3. Theta (4-7.5Hz) — The Light Meditation, Sleeping Wave 

Theta brain waves are present during deep meditation and light sleep. It is the realm of your subconsciousness and is only experienced momentarily as you drift off to sleep from Alpha or wake from deep sleep (from Delta). That said, there are "tools" which can extend the time one remains in the theta state, including CD's which allow for entrainment. There are many on the market and many were tried over the years before I found that, in the case here, those available from Dr. Jeffrey Thompson have been the most effective over the last tow decades.

Dr. Thompson has been experimenting with sound since 1980 and is recognized worldwide as an expert in the field of acoustic-pacing frequencies incorporated into musical sound tracks which allow entrainment to happen as the brain wave frequencies align with the frequency of surrounding sounds. I stopped using his Theta Level CD after the vision came and nowadays, I only use his Delta Sleep System CD's (which I have used for nearly nineteen years in order to enter into a deep, delta level sleep state). 

This has been shared: "A deep sense of unity can only be experienced when in the Theta state. It is where you experience vivid visualizations, inspiration, creativity and exceptional insight. Unlike your other brain waves, the elusive voice of Theta is a silent voice. It is at the Alpha-Theta border, from 7Hz to 8Hz, where the optimal range for visualization begins. At this frequency, you are conscious of your surroundings; however, your body is in a state of deep relaxation." 

I was using one of Dr. Thompson's Theta Level CD's when the vision came and the CD allowed me to "stay under" long enough to receive the entire vision. 

Therefore, by definition, visualizations cannot come when in the beta or alpha states. In those two, distorted and delusional and magical thinking come. In certain ranges within the delta state, dreams or nightmares can come, but visions cannot. 

Hence, the difference in beliefs and thoughts and dreams vs. visions is this: if something comes to you when you are in the theta level of brain wave activity, you are having a vision; if something comes to you when in a delta level state, it is a dream or nightmare; if something comes to you while in the beta or alpha state, then you are dealing with distorted and nonsensical beliefs and thoughts and ideas and concepts which were taught to you and which are not a part of the innate, inner resource or inner guru body of universal consciousness and universal wisdom which can only be tapped into from a theta state. 

Very few ever reach the theta state and stay there for a consideration time unless they use some sort of entrainment aid, so visions are totally different from the near-limitless range of concepts which flood the mind during the beta and alpha states. 

4. Delta (0.5-4Hz) — The Deep Sleep Wave 

The Delta frequency is the slowest of the frequencies and is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep. 

It has been pointed out that "among many things, deep sleep is important for the healing process as it is linked with deep healing and regeneration; hence, not having enough deep sleep is detrimental to one's health in more ways than one." 

5. Gamma (above 40Hz) – The Insight Wave 

Little will be said about the newest addition to the brain wave categories. Why? A gamma wave is a pattern of neural oscillation in humans with a frequency between 25 and 100 Hz, though 40 Hz is typical. According to a popular theory, gamma waves may be implicated in providing the unity of conscious perception; however, there is no agreement on that theory. To the contrary at present, therefore, it is agreed on by many that it is in the Theta state when visions which deal with a sense of unity and non-duality messaging can be tapped into. 

And as Maharaj said, science will someday advance to the point that it can explain and verify and makes clear the non-dual understanding; thus, it is science which can explain now why "whatever comes via visions is far more accurate than whatever comes via my beliefs and thoughts and dreams." 

The point: what comes via visions while in the Theta state might deserve to be considered and might reveal certain truths which can only be accessed by tapping into the deepest levels of (a) the universal consciousness and by tapping into (b) the awareness (which can only be aware of itself if manifested and realized).

A REVIEW AND SUMMATION OF THE ADDITIONAL CLARIFICATIONS AND UNDERSTANDINGS WHICH CAME VIA THE VISION 

[Continued from yesterday]: 

247. So much for what had been read from what Maharaj warned against (namely, “Big Name Teachers”) who had only presented more and more obstacles and blockages that prevented seeing the oh-so-simple Truth. 

248. So much for the teaching that “It helps to understand we have something . . . that we are something . . . which is unchangeable, beautiful, completely aware, and continues no matter what.” 

249. Finally, truth from fiction could be differentiated: 

a. No, there is no “one” to have something (thus Maharaj’s invitation to "Understand that it is not the individual which has consciousness; it is the consciousness which assumes innumerable forms"); 

b. No, we are not something; 

c. Yes, the energy is unchangeable; 

d. No, energy is not dualistic, so it is neither beautiful nor ugly; 

e. No, the energy is not completely aware but is only aware when the conscious-energy is manifested and when Realization has happened, but eventually that energy will return to the source and awareness will not be aware of; 

f. Yes, the energy continues, no matter what, for it was not created and it cannot be destroyed. 

250. As more and more clarifications were revealed, Maharaj’s suggestion to discard what the Big Name Teachers have taught and written and said was heeded, so more of more of the volumes of misrepresentations and misunderstandings and false teachings that had been read for years was all discarded. The wisdom of his advice . . . "You should go back, reverse, to the source" and “Follow the same path by which you came”) was appreciated fully: 

 251. That which was witnessed in the cave made clear that the “coming in” (the “first leg” manifesting) was a natural happening that led to the most unnatural happenings (of being programmed, conditioned, acculturated, domesticated, indoctrinated, and brainwashed); 

that the second leg covered in the vision was the means by which the resultant blockages and darkness could be removed; that the third leg involved “coming back” and overlaying Reality on the relative; and that the fourth leg would happen when mahasamadhi was taken and this particular elemental plant food body with its parts that had come together would eventually come part. 

252. And it was seen that in regards to all that is involved from unmanifesting to unmanifesting that there was no post-manifestation judgment; no post-manifestation rebirth; no post-manifestation period in a world of pleasure if one was “good” or in a world of punishment and pain and suffering and misery if one was “bad.” With the clarity that came via the vision, the words of Maharaj were revisited and were also totally understood: 

253. No wonder Maharaj said that "Only that person will visit this place whose virtue and sin have come to an end." 

254. After the vision, Maharaj’s explanation of the role of the elemental plant food body in the cycling process became clear: “In order to manifest itself, the consciousness needs a frame, a particular construct in which it can appear.” 

255. After seeing via the vision what happened at the end of the time in the cave, this became clearer: "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." 

256. After the vision revealed what is real and what is not as well as what happens and what does not, this became clear: "My true state, which is whole, undifferentiated, is beyond birth and death. I am never bound by my body and mind. I am limitless." 

257. After seeing the “second leg” way back out of the darkness and into the light, the first leg happenings were understood, including how all personas are cast into darkness. Then this was understood: "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." 

NEXT: Beliefs, thoughts, dreams, visions: If only one were to deserve credibility and full attention, which should it be, and why.

"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.

"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.

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.

"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.
