“Wisdom” and “Love”

"Wisdom is knowing I am nothing. Love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves."

FROM A SITE VISITOR: I’m new at this so pardon if I seem slow but you say realization does not stop enjoying the pleasure but if I’m not my body, how is sex supposedly to be enjoyed after I “realize”. And what’s the difference in terms you use like Love sometimes and love sometimes and sex and making love and Showing Love. You talk about deer, but they have sex and seem to enjoy it but there is no love or Love involved right? Signed, Very Confused

The reply:

Hello, “Very.”Consider the following please:

“Love” vs. “love”

To review: take “Love” (uppercase) to be a term which points to what can be called Real Love for the sake of discussion, rooted in an understanding of the Oneness that is revealed with realization. The term “love” (lowercase) points to all of the various notions that the non-realized masses have about what love is or isn’t, all of which is relative nonsense.

"Sex" vs. “Love”

Maharaj addressed the role which “an act of friction” plays in triggering the process of cycling elements and conscious-energy inside a female human body which can lead to the manifestation of a composite unity.

Such an impartial description of the sex act makes clear that the sex act is what it is, namely, a totally natural process at its core. 

Reasons for "Having Sexual 'Relations'"

Among some humans, sex acts are engaged in for pleasure alone; among others, it can be engaged in for what is supposedly “a show of love”;

among others, it has long been engaged in for money or for an exchange of sex for “relative benefits” such as a proposal of marriage, keeping someone around to provide housing and maintenance of property, for paying the rent or house note, for food, clothing, medical care, and vacations and for a “better lifestyle” than that which others can only wish for.

(For further reference, see the role which some assume, called “Lifestyle Whores,” which can be adopted as a conscious or unconscious role played by either human males or females and which is defined in the Urban Dictionary as “persons who are willing to do anything to achieve their lifestyle goals, including leaving their partners if they don't provide a high-enough lifestyle like the ones being enjoyed by their rich friends.” That role is often assumed by those with a very high sense of entitlement, believing that their looks and physical assets should guarantee that they will always live better than “common people who are not nearly as good looking.")

To continue, among some humans, the sex act is engaged in strictly for procreation; in other cases, it is used for stress relief; in many cases it is used as a tool which allows humans to control other humans; in some cultures, it is entered into for the sake of consummation; for others, it is seen as a rite of passage;

with others, it is an act of rebellion; for some, it is a way to “make up” after a fight; some who are driven by personality defects and / or insanity, use it as an act of aggression; among those in the upper levels of their culture’s hierarchy, it is used to establish lines of succession in nations or among families in which the members are still attached to the chauvinistic concept of “the right of the primogeniture of the first-born male";

some use it for the stroking of ego; some for sustaining one or more ego-states; or for a host of other motives which are often hidden from persons and which are far removed from anything having a “noble” connotation which some claim to believe in when they speak of “making love.”

[Is in any wonder that the majority of modern-day marriages often end when conflicts exists in three areas with their influence ranked accordingly:

#1 financial problems; #2 in-laws trouble; #3 sex problems. If you review the list above of the varied and self-serving and selfish reasons which inspire or drive persons to enter into the sex act, is it any surprise that sexual expectations and incompatibility manifest so often?]

Play the “What I Like Sexually Is This” Game by having couples secretly write their truly honest answer that each would use to complete the statement and then reveal their answers and then notice that the odds of their answers ever being exactly the same are infinitesimal.

 “Make Love before you make love”

 Next, this was shared:

Over the years, hundreds of men have come here ready to die because of “her having left him.” Yet the male ego in almost every case was ready to move right along to the next woman in order for a different woman to “build him up and fill the empty space he thinks is inside.” I have suggested to those hundreds to try something totally different before entering into their next relationship, and it is this: “Make Love before you make love.”

Of course Love cannot be made, it can only be understood, but the point is that if Love is understood first—that is, if both parties involved realize the Oneness—then the act described as “love-making” happens in a most unique manner: it is actually a “Showing of Love.”

Then, all of the beauty can be savored on multiple levels as the sixth sense merges into an all-five-sense happening and as a relative happening merges into “the Real.”

(And even “merge” is used for discussion only since there is no “this” joining “that.” All that is happening is that All which has always been One is finally understood to be One. The drop that falls into the ocean is H2O, as is the ocean. There’s really no merging since it was all One anyway. It’s really just a movement.)

The "Sex" - Oneness Correlation  

Next, when “Reality” is “overlaid” onto the relative and the understanding of True Love and the Oneness manifests, then only can there be a Showing of Love which merely accents the oneness. The flavor of the essence is sampled, that is all.

As it is, though, all of the fingers on one hand would not be required to count the number of humans (especially men, it seems) who understood the pointer above, and that fact is reflected in the results of certain studies dealing with this subject matter.

Female / Male Disparities Regarding the Sex Act Which Can Lead to Conflict

Survey results show that more females than men understood the Love / love / sex differentiation. In one study in the U.S. - which is a nation of persons known for their schizophrenic, dualistic combining of (1) “puritanism” on one hand and (2) “a germ of wildness” on the other - 74% of the sexually-active females in a female-male "partnership" said that they could not say that their sex lives leave them “very satisfied.”

Men reported that they are “very satisfied, but wanting more.” If the results of those two surveys are studied side-by-side, then there is likely some credibility to female complaints that “whatever their partners are doing during the sex act has little or nothing to do with love or with Love or with focusing on a “partner” or with “unselfish sharing.”

"Love" and "The Realized" vs. "love and the non-realized

Recently, a visitor to the site thought he had found a contradiction between one pointer which suggested (A) that not only can pleasure happen post-realization but that it is intensified, relatively-speaking, and (B) that pleasure can eventually lead to pain (that is, misery and suffering).

As in the case of Love and love, there is a distinction between personal, dualistic pleasure which leads to pain and the term “Pleasure” which is used to point to what can be known post-realization. It was explained this way to one visitor:

“There are those pleasures which are sure to lead to pain, but once Love and Bliss and Joy manifest via full realization, there is a Pleasure that has no counterpart. The lies about “love” are rejected, (Real) Love is understood, Reality can be ‘overlaid’ on the Am-ness, and unbounded Pleasures can happen.”

Also, this was included in a recent post:

Such Pleasure can manifest when Love is understood, when Love is Shown as Reality is “overlaid” on the Am-ness, and when the Noumenal Oneness is thereafter adumbrated in acts of phenomenal oneness.

Meaning? Once realization happens, an understanding of the Noumenal Oneness happens; once an understanding of the Noumenal Oneness happens, then it is echoed in “acts of phenomenal oneness” whereby the “symbolic union” or “physical uniting” is understood to be the physical manifestation of non-duality itself . . . of the “not-two.”

How many will never understand that? If Maharaj’s estimate that fewer than 1% will ever realize, then probably 99% or more will never “get it.” 

The Review

So, “Very,” to review the main pointers in regards to the terms you asked about: “Love” refers to “True Love” which can be “Shown” via the phenomenal act of oneness after the Noumenal Oneness is totally understood. To the contrary, “love” is a term misused by billions who haven’t the slightest clue about what “Real Love” or “True Love” is.

“Making love” is an almost-euphemistic phrase that is substituted for fornication or engagement in the sex act, the term used to try to assign some loftier connotation to a physical act that—among the masses—has very little “exalted” meaning or “elevated” significance attached, at least according to survey results.

Among the non-realized masses, there is very little difference in what they are doing sexually and what the deer are doing sexually. The only real difference is that the deer are not deceiving themselves or others when so engaged.

And if not realized, then all beliefs about “love” and “sex” and “making love” will indeed be—as is the case with all beliefs—nothing more than distortions and delusions generated by the “minds” of humans as a result of their programming and acculturation and domestication.

As for your query regarding the deer, or any other forms that engage in the sex act, your implication hits the mark: the act is pretty much one-dimensional in those cases, though some sense of "connection" does manifest during the period that a buck and doe share together.

While the natural manner in which the deer lives is a far less stressful and far more sane style of living than among humans, it is the realized that can know all about the subject that is multi-dimensional including the seemingly multi-dimensional "sex + Love" paradigm . . . which is a paradox since that paradigm is not really "multi" at all but is totally "uni."

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 their god / their 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 Mission Statement and the Approach here, continued

Here, you will find a discussion of some pointers from the first and second phases of Maharaj’s “teachings” (un-teachings). Those come from the Hindu + non-duality first phase and from the spirituality + non-duality second phase (with many talks during the second phase collected in the book I AM THAT).

 Far more of the discussions here deal with the pointers which he offered in his much later talks during the third psychology and mind focused + non-duality phase. And as far those earlier talks are concerned:

During his third phase, he said of I AM THAT:

"That book and whatever was expounded at that time was only relevant for that period. I am speaking differently today." He then went on to advise seekers to ignore the talks in that book and to focus on the content of his final talks.

His final understanding, which was completely different from what he offered early on, is the basis of most pointers which are emphasized here nowadays.

To continue:

"WISDOM" and "LOVE"

 
"Wisdom is knowing I am nothing. Love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves." 

F.: Next, the query from the seeker that once asked a question along these lines will be addressed: "If identification gives way to nothingness, how can nothing and something Real, like Real Love, co-exist?"

Actually, there is no such thing as "co-existence" in the non-dual understanding. There is only One . . . only “the advaita” . . . the "not two."

It would be like asking, "How can the two parts "I AM THAT; I AM" co-exist?" If fully realized, it is understood that "I AM THAT; I AM" does not refer to "two" and does not refer to "some thing" existing in the relative realm post-realization and co-existing with "THAT" or as “THAT.”

Nor does that summative statement of non-duality suggest that, post-realization, the Am-ness is to be denied and one is to strut about as if she / he is "all that" or "all THAT." The latter are the types who were tossed from the loft.

Here the pointer is that "Reality" is overlaid (paradoxically) upon "reality" . . . upon "the relative," but in fact, nothing is overlaid on anything else, that also being about "two." What actually happens along with the manifestation of the understanding is that “the supposedly two” merge (not in fact but in the understanding) as one, as the not-two.

Then abidance happens as the original nature and the relative unfolds in a totally nisarga fashion.

At the level of the ultimate understanding, there is no identification with either the Am-ness or with THAT or with anything else.

[Most Seekers who believe that they became Finders long ago – now trapped as they are in their supposedly-superior Seekers / Finders ego-states and driven by the agendas of those supposedly-superior personas - will reject the pointers above. Why?

Because they have presently assumed new identifications such as THAT or Brahman or God or some Supreme Self or Superlative Self or Infinite Self. In truth, they are fixated in what Maharaj called “their kindergarten level spirituality.”

Many trapped in their supposedly-superior, self-assigned ego-states will hate that pointer and will hate "the one" who they think is making the point. So it is. As one person said to another recently, "Just because you disagree with a fact does not mean it is not so."]

In the final understanding, there is no identification at all: no relative identifications and no "Post-Manifestation Identifications." Most of Maharaj's earliest pointers on the subject of identification, including fifty direct discussions of that subject in I AM THAT and many more indirect references, dissuaded seekers from assuming (false) self-identifications as well as (false) Self-Identifications.

Actually, even on one early occasion, he did say, "I am free from all description and identification."

A question similar to the one being addressed here was raised by a visitor to the loft:

Questioner: "If I am eliminated, what will remain?"

Maharaj: "Nothing will remain, all will remain. Being - Awareness - Love will shine in full splendour. Liberation is never of the person, it is always from the person."

Thus, post-realization, everything (including Being and Awareness and Real Love) will remain, even as nothing (no identifications or Identifications) will remain; thus, Real Love allows for the understanding of “you are everything” while Wisdom allows for the understanding that "you are nothing.”

Even from the platform of nothingness, of identity-less-ness, Real Love Is. In fact, Real Love can only be understood during the manifestation and the nothingness can only be understood during the manifestation. 

Because Real Love Is

and

because what it is rooted in is the "not two" 

and 

because that means there is no subject-object element involved with Real Love at all 

then 

it should be clear that the awareness of "nothingness" and "no subject-object love" and Real Love can all manifest at the same time as components of the understood but unstatable Truth.

Then, as a result of that understanding, all will merely happen spontaneously for the remainder of the manifestation. So what happens in terms of even Real Love if the understanding is: "I am neither object nor subject"?

Again, Maharaj taught: "Love says: 'I am everything'. Wisdom says: 'I am nothing'. Between the two my life flows."

The reality of no identification ("I am nothing") becomes a lubricant which allows abidance to happen for the remainder of the manifestation in a smooth and easy and unforced manner when “Reality” is (paradoxically) overlaid on the “relative” and which allows the "flow of life" to happen effortlessly. That is the way it can be when it is understood that "everything" and "nothing" are advaita - that is, "not two."

To be continued.

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 their god / their 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.]

Five Free eBooks

Compliments of Andy Gugar, Jr.,
the following eBooks are available without charge for you or for friends:

I.
"GOOD vs. EVIL?" or "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, and INSANITY?"

The content of this eBook deals with one of the most common but erroneous beliefs that the non-Realized masses cling to and which they will fight about (and even kill over), namely, that there is a planet-wide duel going on between “the forces of good and evil” in the universe.

Either (1) the ancient view is spot on: that the "ills of the planet" are rooted in evil people, in people not being religious enough or spiritual enough, and are caused solely by bad morality; or, (2) the "ills of the planet" are rooted in ignorance, stupidity and insanity and "being good" or "being moral" does not put an end to ignorance, does not eliminate stupidity, and does not treat insanity in any way.

II.
"THE VISION"

Comments regarding the free eBook entitled “THE VISION”:

“My thanks to you and Andy.” – Andrew “Mac” McMaster

“Thanks so much for the book! And, by the way, it is brilliant and the most effective pointing that you have done. It has served to help clear the remaining blockages.” – Stan Cross

“Greatly appreciate having “THE VISION” added to my Henderson resource library that is situated on the right side of my bed for easy access! Eternally grateful for what was received and what was given.” – Robert Rigby

“‘THE VISION’ is such a well-written, condensed version of the Nisarga Yoga approach to understanding and enjoying Reality that I feel it can serve as a must-read ‘meditation guide’ for all earnest seekers.” – Andy Gugar, Jr.

III.
"Sapolsky, Maharaj, and the Non-Dual Teachings"

Dr. Robert Maurice Sapolsky is an American neuroendocrinologist; a professor of biology, neuroscience, and neurosurgery at Stanford University; a researcher; an author; and a Research Associate at the National Museums of Kenya.

There is much that a non-dualist or Advaitin or Nisargan can relate to by comparing and contrasting what Sapolsky reveals about the way certain troops of baboons live in Africa with the way that humans abide all around the globe.

This 152-page eBook catalogues the common, non-dual message shared by Sapolsky and Maharaj and reveals the ways that Sapolsky’s scientific research supports the non-dual pointers offered by Maharaj.

IV.
Seeking

In “PART ONE” it will be seen that most persons on the planet are not seeking, and most will never seek, but for those who are seeking, most will face several obstacles:

In “PART TWO” of this book, it will be seen why many criticized Maharaj for “changing his message in his later talks.” It will be seen that the changes were not about changing the message per se as much as about changing his methodology as he experimented with one version of the Ultimate Medicine after another in order to try to find an effective means for addressing the Ultimate Sickness.

He tried a religious version of the Medicine, a Spiritual version of the Medicine, and finally settled on a version which addressed to Sickness at its core . . . at the mental and emotional level.

V.
"THE MOST DANGEROUS BELIEF OF ALL"

“Dangerous” is a term that can only apply during the relative existence, but of those who do commit suicide, for example, how many shoot themselves in the foot over and over until they “bleed out”? None. They shoot themselves in the head. Why? In order to try to stop the noise - to try to stop the chatter of a thousand monkeys – to stop the noisy mind which is the area that stores the ideas, notions, concepts, mind-stuff, etc. which drives them into the depths of insanity.

And what are those ideas, notions, concepts, etc. called, collectively? "Their beliefs." The irony? They are not their beliefs at all. They are the beliefs of “others” that were set in place via programming, conditioning, etc. and which persons then think are their own.

And what are those beliefs rooted in, and what reinforces those beliefs and convinces persons that they are sacred and worth fighting over and even sometimes worth dying for? Blind faith.

This 337-page eBook discusses those issues in detail.
