The point in this series is that the non-dual message has long been widespread but has seldom been understood either then or now. So, to move on . . . 

NON-DUAL POINTERS IN THE WRITINGS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE 

QUOTATION #11 and #12 and #13 

“Out, out, brief candle” 

and 

“All that lives must die, passing through nature to eternity” 

and 

“There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” 

Imagine a candle as your body; imagine the wick as the fuel—the food inside—that allows the light to happen. As long as the candle is there and the wick is there and oxygen is available, then the light can continue to appear. 

When the elements of the candle/body no longer retain their temporary form, and when the wick / food is no longer in its temporary form, then the light will appear no more. How briefly one candle can burn and then be out in comparison to all eternity. 

The elements from which the candle is made can hold that shape for a time, but that form cannot last. The wick-as-wick is limited as well. So, too, is the flame limited in terms of the time that it can appear. All are merely elements which allow the light to appear for a brief time. The elements are natural, are nature. 

The consciousness is that which is passing through nature and which is also nature itself. It IS, and it is THAT. The scientist Szent-Gyorgyi observed, “What drives life is thus a little electric current, set up by the sunshine.” 

That is all that is happening: conditions evolved on the planet so that plants could thrive and so that a little electric current that is set up by the nuclear furnace called “the sun” could manifest in a plant. 

That energy has many properties, one of which is a consciousness that allows for automatic functioning. The consciousness passes through nature to eternity since energy can neither be created nor destroyed. 

Further, both individual philosophies (which are nothing more than personal beliefs) as well as personal ideologies prevent seeing the reality beyond the false things that are dreamt of by men. (Women repeat the magical stories and baseless myths, but men were the ones who dreamed up the concepts.) 

And while there is so much more to reality than dreams suggest, there is far less in reality than what has been dreamed up by men in the past and what is now being dreamed up by men. Everything is only one thing and is not at all the millions of images that persons take to be real. 

There is far less than meets the eye and the imaginary “mind” and far more to be understood beyond. To take the candle to be what it appears to be (or to take that which is briefly manifested in nature as the everlasting, or to imagine that personal ideologies can in any way reveal the truth) is to live in the darkness and ignorance that Shakespeare spoke of. 

Do you see that you are neither the body nor the food-body but are that which is manifested temporarily and briefly? Do you see that what You Truly Are is merely passing through this natural setting to eternity, manifested for a brief moment and then unmanifested? 

Imagine a candle as your body; imagine the wick as the fuel—the food inside—that allows the light to happen. As long as the candle is there and the wick is there and oxygen is available, then the light can continue to appear. 

When the elements of the candle / body no longer maintain that form, and when the elements of wick / food transition beyond that form, then the light will appear no more. How briefly one candle can burn and then be out in comparison to all eternity. 

The elements from which the candle is made can hold that shape for a time, but that form cannot last. The space of the wick-as-wick is limited as well. So, too, is the flame limited in terms of the time that it can appear. All are merely elements which allow the light to manifest for a brief time. 

The elements are natural, are nature. The consciousness is that which is passing through nature and which is also nature itself. It IS, and it is THAT. Again, “What drives life is thus a little electric current, set up by the sunshine.” 

That is all that is happening: conditions evolved on the planet so that plants could thrive and so that a little electric current that is set up by the nuclear furnace called “the sun” could manifest in a plant. 

That energy has many properties, one of which is a consciousness that allows for automatic functioning. The consciousness passes through nature to eternity since energy can neither be created nor destroyed. 

Further, both individual philosophies (which are nothing more than personal beliefs) as well as personal ideologies prevent seeing the reality beyond the things that are dreamt of by men. (Women repeat the magical stories and baseless myths, but men were the ones who dreamed up the concepts.) 

And while there is so much more to reality than dreams suggest, there is far less in reality than what has been dreamed up by men in the past and what is now being dreamed up by men. Everything is only one thing and is not at all the millions of images that persons take to be real. 

There is far less than meets the eye and the imaginary “mind” and far more to be understood beyond. To take the candle to be what it appears to be (or to take that which is briefly manifested in nature as the everlasting, or to imagine that personal ideologies can in any way reveal the truth) is to live in the darkness and ignorance that Shakespeare spoke of. 

Do you see that you are neither the body nor the food-body but are that which is manifested temporarily and briefly? Do you see that “What You Truly Are” is merely passing through this natural setting to eternity, manifested for a brief moment and then unmanifested? 

Do you realize that you need no one’s ideologies to know who you are because there is no who-ness and no WHO-ness involved with anything going on in the universe or on this planet?

Moreover, do you realize what Maharaj meant when he said that “You do not need to find the answer to ‘Who Am I?’ and said that, “Instead, you need only find out all that you are not.” 

Do you realize how much more there is than what has been dreamt of in humankind’s philosophies? Additionally, do you realize how much less there is than has been dreamt of in peoples’ philosophies?

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) whose Vatican Bank worked for decades with the Mafia while laundering mob earnings (for a 15% all-profit charge by the Bank); 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 point in this series is that the non-dual message has long been widespread but has seldom been understood either then or now. So, to move on . . . 

NON-DUAL POINTERS IN THE WRITINGS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE 

QUOTATION #9 

“To thine own Self be true and it must follow as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” 

The poet’s pointer, rooted in non-dual teachings, is accurate; yet as long as persons are bent on believing the false and believing in illusions without questioning them at all, then persons can—and will—be false to “any man,” to all persons, and to themselves. 

Because persons are not true to their own self, they will be false to all, they will believe all lies, and they will naively believe that the images being shown to them are real. They will even believe that their own personal images are real. And taking false images to be the real will generate desires, fears and ignorance. Misery and suffering will follow. 

In the summer of '64 before my senior year in high school, a song began playing on the car radio one evening as we were out “cruising around.” Those were the days of “The British Invasion” when bands from the U.K. were finding a welcoming audience in the U.S. 

The Rod Argent song we heard over the car radio for the first time that night resonated with me quite strongly. The background:

Four or five months earlier, “The Beatles” had arrived in New York City in February of 1964, and on the Sunday night following their arrival, they were driven to the Theater District in Manhattan and appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” 

In what would prove to be a record setting viewership during those days, 73 million people tuned in that evening, making it one of the seminal moments in television history. 

All the bands back home in the U.K. who were witnessing the insane reaction to a band made up of their fellow countrymen began gazing westward as well, including one British songwriter named Rod Argent who was the founder of a band called “The Zombies.” 

The song we heard for the first time that night was “She's Not There,” and for most of my friends that evening, the rhythm of the song - along with Argent’s amazing talent on the keyboard, coming from a fellow who was only two years older than we were - was impressive indeed. 

But for me, having just returned to the Louisiana city where my parents lived after having spent a month in a small cabin in the piney woods of East Texas with my Cherokee grandmother, and having once again absorbed the 24 / 7 energy of her non-duality-based lifestyle, something else about the song resonated with me. 

After my friends that night finished talking about the beat and the keyboard playing which was superior to anything we’d ever heard before, I tried to open a discussion of the “message,” of the “meaning” of the lyrics. I was told, and told quite abruptly, to shut up. Little did I know that the same reaction would follow me throughout the next 55 years whenever I tried to discuss Grandmother’s non-duality pointers and wisdom. Ha. 

So it was, and so it is. The lesson would eventually be grasped that these teachings are not - as Maharaj made tried to make clear - for public consumption. The masses are not interested in a pure, non-dual message, for the most part. 

So what did Argent’s lyrics deal with? They dealt with one of my own recent experiences. 

Having undergone a recent “heartbreak” after a girl named “Francie” had cut me loose (a girl who seemed or appeared to be the essence of kindness and sweetness but proved to be the essence of meanness and coldness), Argent’s words most definitely struck home that night.

He bemoaned the fact that he, too, had fallen for an image, only to later be slapped with a suffering-generating truth about the object of his affection when the image proved to be . . . an image.

He sang:
Well, no one told me about her . . . 
The way she lied. 

Well, no one told me about her 
How many people cried. 

But it's too late to say you're sorry, 
How would I know, why should I care? 

 Please don't bother trying to find her, 
She's not there. 

Well, let me tell you 'bout the way she looked 
The way she acts and the color of her hair . . . 

Her voice was soft and cool, 
Her eyes were clear and bright, 

But she's not there. 

How many have experienced the same? 

Be it a woman falling for an Adonis, for the perfect male, and being sure she wants to spend the rest of her life with him and wants to make a home full of babies with him, 

or 

be it a male falling for hair “the color of” the silk on the late-summer corn in Grandmother’s one-acre garden and a “voice so cool” and those “clear and bright” blue eyes, only to see later that she was just a mirage, a false image. 

In either case, the “one” taken to be a certain way, in truth, “is not there” . . . and never was. 

Usually, after the reality behind the image is seen, all that remains is the suffering. And I got Argent’s message: “You might think she’s now available to you since she left me, but I tell you that it will be an exercise in futility for you to go out and search for her and to try to find her for yourself because – I promise you – 'she’s not there'.” 

The “she” I thought existed was just that: a “thought” and nothing more, a misperception in my mind, and the way I thought she was, well, she was never really that way at all. She was never the person I thought her to be. 

And the same applies with so many women who think they are seeing a man who, actually, is not really there at all. 

And when any illusion dies out and reality is driven into one’s brain like a hot metal spike being pounded with a sledgehammer, much suffering can come. 

Like a child screaming at the top of its lungs as it watches a horror movie on a screen and takes the images to be real, such will be the way of the relative existence of persons as they watch the images of their imaginary world passing across the screen of their consciousness. 

Persons of all ages will experience at times the horror of unmet desires, devastating disappointments, and paralyzing fears as they look at the bizarre images of their "world" and take them to be real. They will, however, experience what they call “wonderful highs” on other occasions, mixed in between those “miserable lows.” 

Conditioned to believe that's normal or "just the way it is," they will profess that such an arbitrary and unstable existence is “really okay” and that they are “Doing fine, thanks. And you?” Lost in the “Dream of the Planet,” trapped on the stage of “The Drama of the Lie,” most will never find the middle ground of sanity and stability and reason. 

Eventually, some will claim that “The world is insane” and that “People are nuts” and they will never realize that they are merely projecting their own insanity onto “others” who are nothing more than reflections of their own false self (and false selves). The result: images seeing images and taking those imaginings to be real. 

Some will describe "others" as “really good at heart,” accepting a false image as real while being completely unaware of the brutal conduct they exhibit behind closed doors. High vs. low. Evil vs. good. Wonderful vs. miserable. Believing in images vs. knowing the reality. Duality upon duality upon duality. 

There is no AS IF existence for the non-realized. There is only the constant shifting between highs and lows; there is the continuous chaos; and there are the unending efforts to escape the insanity via more insanity: the use of harmful substances or the denial of reality. Such is the cost of buying into the lies of acculturation and accumulation. The belief in the false can only be escaped when to thy own Self you are true. 

QUOTATION #10 

“Nature is made better by no means.” 

There are those who are driven by their fears, their greed, and the other traits of their corrupted consciousness and who believe that they can manipulate nature and make it better. 

In the U.S. and other countries, certain of those types of persons are injecting beef, pork, turkey and chicken—all intended for human consumption—with hormones, growth stimulants, antibiotics, flavorings, preservatives, colorings, tenderizers, steroids, and other chemicals. 

During processing, other additives and by-products are also included. Plants intended for consumption are being equally contaminated. Those producers claim that nature is being improved on by their means. What is being improved on is the quantity but not the quality. 

Larger quantities translate to more profit, so they might be improving their bottom line but they are not improving their product. They are, in fact, providing a product that is destroying the integrity of nature rather than making it better. 

The result is increased sales and profits along with an unnatural effect on those who consume their products. Recent studies show that the consumption of hormones is creating in humans a hormone imbalance which is directly impacting sexual identity and sexual preferences. 

The consumption of antibiotics is negatively impacting the immune systems of humans. Chemicals are building up in humans and resulting in the accumulation of toxins in bodies. Nature is made better by no means. 

What does any of that have to do with non-dual cautions against accepting personas as true identities? Persons are always in some degree of fear. Fear can then manifest in many forms, including economic fear and its traveling partner, unchecked greed. Those will inspire persons to care not a whit about harming “others” in the relative existence. 

Too, persons are driven by their various ego-states which all have perceived needs. In a capitalistic culture, persons always address those needs with money, so there is always an element of fear and greed combined with a willingness to generate harm in the relative existence in an effort to have those imagined needs met. 

Therefore, at the root of the bastardization of the food supply is an effort that is supposedly intended to make nature better but is really intended to increase profits without regard for negative impact on humans. 

Behind the efforts are ego-states and fears and greed that always accompany false identities. To understand completely the conduct of persons in this relative existence requires an understanding of false personas and their effects. 

Finally, it can be understood why natural living is preferred to unnatural living and to supernatural living. Using unnatural foods to try to sustain a food-body cannot be beneficial for the physical state; nor can using supernatural, magical thinking be beneficial for the mental or emotional state. 

Nature can be made better by no means, whether the means involves bastardizing the food supply or the means involves bastardizing the consciousness with tales of supernatural, magical concepts that you must belief without question or with tales of evil, fear-inspiring forces that are coming to destroy you.

NON-DUAL POINTERS IN THE WRITINGS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE 

QUOTATION #8 (Continued) 

"I say there is no darkness but ignorance." 

This was shared yesterday: 

The path of darkness and ignorance is broad. The path to the light, on the other hand, is narrow … traveled by so few. So it is. But how shall it be with you . . . with You? Darkness . . . or Light? Ignorance . . . or awareness? 

Also, 

Maharaj shared - in various ways - the pointer that persons who have been programmed, conditioned, fooled, etc. will reach a point where they will be unable to differentiate the true from the false

He made clear that the masses, trapped as they are in ignorance and insanity, “talk only of the unreal, the illusory, the transient, the conditioned.” 

Since 1969, I have been certified to teach 100-level and 200-level psychology courses in colleges and universities in all fifty states. 

During the intervening years, there have been changes in teacher license reciprocity rules and changes in the ways that the granting of reciprocity has been subject to meeting various state-specific requirements. 

Certain states added demanding requirements for the completion of additional course work; other states withdrew their reciprocity offers, only to expand those offers during periods of teacher shortage. For years after that, less restrictive reciprocity criteria became the norm. 

The death or debilitation of hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens occurred during the Vietnam War, resulted in the additional loss of potential employees in many fields; during those times, license reciprocity became a near-automatic, no-additional-requirements process; thus, when I moved to another state in the 1970’s, my certification was accepted without any stipulations or limitations. 

Over the years, a variety of occupations I held led to my using the instruments in my “psychology toolkit” as I worked with more and more persons who were seeking “change” or “growth” or “an understanding” about the causes of their relationship problems or their "living problems."

I began using personality inventory tests and conducted result analyses with persons to give them insight into the ways that personality identifications were controlling their thoughts and words and actions and setting them up for all sorts of relative disasters.

The personality testing and results analyses, continuing to this day, have allowed many to see which personality disorders were manifesting, which were reaching the levels of full-blown neuroses, and which were reaching the level of full-blown psychoses. 

I have, over the years, worked with thousands of persons whose problems were centered in their minds and have been able to show them, on an exact scale, to what degree their personality disorders are manifesting and disrupting their relative existence as well as the existence of persons trying to deal with them. 

To this day, the use of that personality inventory and the use of the follow-up analysis has cast light into the darkness of their psyche and allowed them to see what has been at the root of their problems. 

The “fit” with those seeking via a non-dual approach and also completing a thorough personality analysis has provided significant awareness to many. 

This September will mark the fiftieth year since I began working with persons to try to free them of the effects of the ignorance and the insanity which has been imposed upon them by their relatives and by their cultures. 

I have shared that one of my uncles was the chief administrator of the largest facility ever in the state of Texas to house the “criminally-insane,” and interactions with and observations of some of the “inmates” there were revealing. 

I have also worked in treatment centers where most persons were there as a result of court-orders. In-depth work with hundreds of those people has also been revealing. 

In all of those thousands of cases where I dealt one-on-one with persons in the general population who were seeking change or understanding, and observed the persons incarcerated in what was then called “an insane asylum,” and dealt one-on-one with the persons sent to a treatment center by a judge, I observed that they all shared certain characteristics in common. 

Those characteristics? 

A warped perspective; 

a tendency to interrupt everything they heard or saw or read in a 180-degreee opposite fashion; 

a tendency to see black as white and white as black; 

a propensity for being fooled; 

a willingness to believe persons who were as ignorant or insane as they were; 

a tendency to reject what they heard from persons who were not totally ignorant or insane; 

and 

a “predator mentality” with a view that one is “either the hunter or the hunted, and pride in being the hunter.” 

I met a man in the 1980’s who lived on the streets and under bridges and in cardboard boxes in a mid-size city in Louisiana. He told me that he only came out at night to forage for scraps of food and to try to talk someone else into sharing their drug supply with him or to steal something that he could pawn for cash in order to buy drugs. 

He told me that he “hated the light,” that he “felt vulnerable in the light,” and that he had lived in the darkness for so long that he “had developed an excellent skill set, the skill set of a feral cat.” 

Like many others, I saw that he was much more afraid of the light than the dark. 

He proudly compared himself to a leopard and to the other nocturnal animals in Africa that are predators and that like to hunt under the cover of darkness. 

Moreover, he really thought he "had his act together." He had not the slightest willingness to consider any alternatives which were different from the lifestyle that he said "was working great for him.” 

And the criminally-insane people in the facility where my uncle worked felt the same way. 

And the people bidding their time in a treatment center where a judge had sent them felt the same way. 

Their warped minds had all “normalized the abnormal.” Now, they cannot differentiate between the true and the false. 

They prefer the darkness to the light, even though that is diametrically opposite the message passed down via archetypal images (the highly developed elements of what Jung called “the collective unconscious”) which have been passed down genetically from one generation to the next and which are intended to contribute to “the survival of the species.” 

Archetypes are based in the collective experiences of humankind, a way for ancestors to send either intuitive warnings (about what has worked against the interests of the survival of the species) or to send an endorsement of what has worked in the interests of the survival of the species. 

Hence, these archetypal pairings carry an intuitive message about . . . 

                                          “WHAT HELPS”        vs.        “WHAT DOES NOT HELP”: 

                                                      light                   vs.                         darkness 

                                                       up                     vs.                           down 

                                                     logic                    vs.                      irrationality 

                                                   wisdom                 vs.                        stupidity 

                                                      love                    vs.                            hate 

                                                     unity                   vs.             separation and division 

                                                     peace                  vs.                chaos and fighting 

Some political rallies nowadays are marked by the sharing of considerations which point toward the light and endorse logic and wisdom and love and unity and peace. 

Other political rallies nowadays are marked by statements which inspire darkness, irrationality, stupidity, hatred, division, and fighting. 

The same has happened throughout human history. The wise and loving historically have sought that which unites. The ignorant have sought that which divides. There, in a nutshell, is one of the major duality vs. non-duality options.

Moreover, politicians and would-be leaders have long understood that nothing can inspire their supporters to follow them more than a fear of the light and a preference for the darkness and hatred and division and fighting.

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) whose Vatican Bank worked for decades with the Mafia while laundering mob earnings (for a 15% all-profit charge by the Bank); 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. [See the offer in gold text 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 green text after today's 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." (See the details in the blue text after this post.) 

The point in this series is that the non-dual message has long been widespread but has seldom been understood either then or now. 

 So, to move on . . . 

NON-DUAL POINTERS IN THE WRITINGS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE 

QUOTATIONS #6 and #7 (Continued - Part Five) 

“Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing” 

and 

“It’s all much ado about nothing” 

Re-consider this pointer: Relief is as close as realization, yet none of the pointers offered over the last several days can be understood unless it is first understood that All is merely happening, merely cycling. Wherefore any “significance”? 

(It is the understanding that accompanied realization which now allows “my life” to happen without any requirement of “my” attendance. Beingness preempts doership, yet all that is necessary for the meeting of the basic physical needs happens nevertheless.) 

In the early stages of manifestation, the consciousness can experience beingness for a time; later, the consciousness can be corrupted and persons then experience their states-of-being for a time (thinking they are being “this role” or being “that role”); 

either way, consciousness will eventually unmanifest and will transition into non-beingness, and then all that remains is the unmanifested conscious-energy that has returned to the universal pool of consciousness from which it manifested originally. 

Then, all that there is is “the Void of the Nothingness of the Absolute,” which is beyond both beingness and non-beingness. Now, I Am; ultimately I Am That which is beyond beingness and non-beingness, and the I AM and the I AM THAT are “not two.” 

All who are trapped in the illusions of corrupted consciousness are being fooled and are also trapped in the idiocy of the lies of enculturation. All who become free of the bastardized consciousness via the taking of the seven-steps to Reality will understand completely the Functioning of the Totality and will 

(a) never be fooled again and will 

(b) never suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous idiocy again and will 

(c) be freed of the sound and fury of the illusory existence called “life.” 

Instead, the realized know that—rather than involving meaning and significance—this thing called “life” is really much ado about nothing, signifying nothing. To realize all of that is to be free of ego-states, egotism, and the sound and fury that ego generates. 

All of their tales, their sounds and their fury are used as persons try to convince you that this life (if lived the way they would have you live it) signifies something, that they know what that something is, and that belief in their beliefs will assure you that you will experience the significance that they claim is real. 

It is all, as the realized poet said, much ado about nothing, but their sounds and fury convince programmable persons that it is all very important, very relevant, and very significant. Why? Because the egotism that supports all ego-states has convinced them that they are important, relevant, and significant. 

How to be free, once and for all? realize. 

[Note once more than Maharaj said that “realization” is merely the recognition of the fact that all of the “knowledge” accumulated in one’s mind is just “learned ignorance” and then being sane enough to discard all belief in all of the ignorance that one has been taught.] 

Realize that everything you’ve ever been told about what your life should be like is a tale told by an idiot. Realize that everything you’ve ever been told about how you should live your life is a tale told by an egotistical, controlling, non-realized person (no matter how "sincere" or "well-meaning" their efforts). 

Realize that every story you’ve ever been told about “what life is” is just a fictional tale told by an idiot. Realize that every tale you’ve ever been told about life being significant and how and why you should make yours significant is an idiot’s tale. 

All happenings can happen without a persona trying to make it happen. All happenings can happen without your being controlled or manipulated by persons. AS IF living really can happen. 

Related to all of that is the next quote from Shakespeare: 

QUOTATION #8 

"I say there is no darkness but ignorance." 

Persons live in such darkness that they cannot see . . . that they cannot reason … that they cannot even figure out who they are. It has been said that “there’s a sucker born every minute.” Not true. No human is born a sucker. Suckers and idiots and fools are made, not born. In fact, no one has ever been born at all. 

[Elements and energy - including conscious-energy - are merely cycling, not being created by “parents” or by a God or by all three working together in a this world / other world ménage a trois to “make babies.”] 

Pure consciousness manifests but is soon warped by the programming and conditioning offered by ignorant persons moving about in the darkness of bastardized consciousness. Why is it so difficult to eliminate the darkness? Why is it almost impossible to eradicate ignorance? Why will so few persons ever reach a state of enlightenment? 

A. Persons become programmed and conditioned to live in darkness and ignorance because they are as easily fooled as any animal. 

B. Persons cannot see the truth even in the light of clear evidence that their perceptions are distorted and false. 

C. Persons are so egotistical that they refuse to admit that their perceptions have been wrong and will, therefore, steadfastly refuse to abandon their belief in the false images that they took to be the real. They will cling to their false images even when Reality is laid out before their very eyes. 

Three examples from U.S. news reports will serve as examples: 

1. Persons become programmed and conditioned to live in darkness and ignorance because they are as easily fooled as any animal: 

A news item from Seattle, Washington reported that “Shellie White was arrested for abducting her two children from their father's custody in Arizona, changing her appearance and assuming his identity. She even went so far as to tell her children, aged 6 and 8, that she was their father.” 

How easily can persons be programmed and conditioned? The Federal Marshals Service spokesperson said, “When she was arrested, the children asked, ‘Why are you arresting our daddy?’” 

2. Persons cannot see the truth even in the light of clear evidence that their perceptions are distorted and false: 

A news item from Seattle, Washington reported that “a man opened fire on partygoers over the weekend, killing six, wounding two others, and then killed himself.” Even after that act was made known to the killer’s apartment manager, the manager said that he was surprised since his tenant was “a teddy bear" and was “the kindest, sweetest, gentlest person you could know.” 

3. Persons are so egotistical that they refuse to admit that their perceptions have been wrong and will, therefore, steadfastly refuse to abandon their belief in the false images that they took to be the real. They will cling to their false images even when Reality is laid out before their very eyes. 

A news item from Selmer, Tennessee reported that “Mary Weinker, the wife of an evangelical preacher who was the father of their three children, murdered her husband with a shotgun blast to the back.” What did the members of his church say, even after learning that the wife had killed her husband?: 

"Listen, the Mary we knew didn't do this." 

"She was a wonderful person." 

"She was real nice.” 

"I've seen them out in the park, holding hands. You couldn't ask for no better."

“Mary Winkler was . . . the perfect wife." 

“She and her husband were an ideal couple.” 

“They were a happy, loving couple.” 

[Maharaj and other non-dual teachers have sometimes been charged with "being too blunt and even rude," including "yours truly." Not true. Maharaj would have said to those people talking about Mary Winkler, 

"You are talking in your sleep" 

as opposed to saying, 

"You people could not be any dumber if you cut your damn heads off!" 

or  

"If ignorance and stupidity reach $65.00 a barrel, I want drilling rights on your heads!"

or

"If you could turn whatever wisdom you have into leather, you wouldn't have enough to make a saddle for a pissant!"

See how much nicer "You are talking in your sleep" really is?]

Now this is all relative existence stuff, so ultimately it means nothing; however, since persons must live and suffer in this relative existence until the consciousness is freed, maybe more understanding is indicated to alleviate the misperceptions and the misery and the darkness and the ignorance. So in regards to this murder, what the parishioners are saying is that . . .

. . . the Mary they knew did not commit the murder, and the Mary who confessed to the murder is “a different Mary.” According to them, the authorities have the wrong person in custody. They also believe that a woman can kill her husband - the father of their three children - and still be “wonderful” and "nice.” 

Too, according to these persons interviewed, it can get “no better” than to be in a marriage in which you’re killed; a “perfect wife” is one that will kill you; and, finally, with “ideal, happy, loving couples,” one spouse will kill the other. 

Darkness. Ignorance. Unbelievable ignorance, pathetically clinging to their images as if children, unable to reason or to be logical, unable to reprocess their bogus beliefs, incapable of differentiating true from false. 

The masses walk in darkness, and there is no darkness but ignorance. The truth is within, but it can only be found if one begins to question everything that is external, decides to stop parroting the masses, and refuses to follow the crowds in a sheep-like manner any longer. 

Persons cannot hear their own “self” (or “selves”) talking. Persons cannot hear the ignorance coming from their own mouths as they merely parrot what they have heard before, as they prefer image to reality. Because so few ever realize, the masses will always be trapped in their personas. 

The path of darkness and ignorance is broad. The path to the light, on the other hand, is narrow … traveled by so few. So it is. But how shall it be with you . . . with You? Darkness . . . or Light? Ignorance . . . or awareness?

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.

"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.
