THE DARK TRIAD

Maharaj often said, “This is so simple, really.” Yet for most persons, trapped in the symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness, nothing is simple, be it their seeking or their "religious or spiritual life" or their complex and complicated relative existence. 

But there really is a process which can simplify treating the Sickness and which can simplify the remainder of the relative existence of those who can be restored to sanity and freed from the effects of their programming, conditioning, etc. The rub? Most persons usually do not prefer the simplest method.

Many love to engage in convoluted and drawn-out and long-winded methods which allow person to try to satisfy the key desires of "non-realized" humans, namely (1) to talk and talk and talk and (2) to attain more “noble” identities such as “The Super Religious One” or “The Spiritual Giant” or "The Super Seeker" or “The Old-Timer in a Group”; thus, persons will often try one or more or all of the following: 

USE RELIGION TO TAP INTO THE POWER OF GOD 

All humans are addicted to something. In addition to the long list of what they are addicted to, all other addictions are preceded by the primary and secondary addictions of humanity, the primary addiction being an addiction to control and the secondary addiction being an addiction to power (and usually “a Power” as well) in order to be able to control. Maharaj’s take? 

Ultimately, power (and Power) are illusions:

"First of all you identify something as being good or bad for yourself. Then, in an effort to acquire good or to get rid of the bad, you have invented a God. Then you worship such a God and . . . you pray to that God for something good to happen to you." 

BECOME SPIRITUAL IN ORDER  TO TAP INTO THE POWER OF GOD SO YOU CAN BECOME GODLY (OR EVEN GOD) 

Originally, Maharaj tried to use a religion / non-dual mixture as the Ultimate Medicine. Later, he tried a spirituality / non-dual compound as the Ultimate Medicine. Eventually, he abandoned both and used a psychological / non-dual form of the Ultimate Medicine, advising:

“Whatever you have tried to understand during your spiritual search will prove false” 

and 

“When the birth is disproved, the great noble meaning of spirituality and the meaning of this world — everything — is disproved” 

and 

“I have no faith in anything which has ever been told, not even what has been told by the Vedas. Only my own experience" 

and 

"Whatever you think of as 'spiritual knowledge' was gained in the realm of consciousness; such knowledge is merely a burden upon your head and it is going to add more misery. It is nothing more than spiritual jargon" 

and 

"There is no such thing as spirituality; whatever is, is only this worldly life, in the five-elemental play" 

and 

"Those who have apperceived my knowledge will not fall a prey to the logic or spirituality expounded by others" 

and 

"Spiritual knowledge should not be studied" 

and 

“Give up spirituality” 

and 

“Follow your normal inclinations" 

and 

"Forget spirituality.” 

In other words, abide naturally (in a Nisarga fashion) rather than trying to live supernaturally / religiously / spiritually.

USE DRUGS 

 Since the 1960’s, some have accepted Leary’s advise to “Turn on, tune in, drop out” in their efforts to reach a higher plane or higher level of consciousness. Maharaj's take on that method:

“Some are addicted to trances, with their consciousness in abeyance. Without full consciousness, what [success] can there be?”

Moreover, he said, "There is no question of elevating to a higher level. Here it is only a question of understanding." 

FORM OR JOIN SPIRITUAL GROUPS AND HELP EACH OTHER WITH SELF INVENTORY / SELF-INQUIRY IN ORDER TO FIND GOD OR THE TRUE SELF

To those playing the role of “The Spiritual Giant,” he advised: 

“Proclaiming oneself to be an omnipotent, omniscient and omnipotent deity is a clear sign of ignorance.” 

He said: “Get rid of all ideas about yourself, even of the idea that you are God.” 

As for spiritual groups, he knew they were useless. Some protest, saying, “But he had groups meeting in his loft two times a day for decades.” Yes, but he addressed specific questions with answers intended to move seekers to the next step and then he sent them away to consider his pointers in the silence, alone, not in groups. With a few exceptions, he only allowed most to stay for a week or two. Those who showed they were not ready were sent packing in a matter of minutes. 

Yet there are still groups even to this day in Mumbai who meet daily to go to a room where there is preserved behind glass a handful of the ashes which remained from his pyre where the plant food body was cremated, ashes which were snatched up by a man.

Now, everyday in that room, men gather to pray and worship and bow and chant and sing praises to a handful of ashes. How might Maharaj describe that group's activities, were he present to witness them? Maybe with a word which he used often but which his translators and editors expunged from his talks and transcripts, namely, “bullshit.” 

As for the SELF-Inquiry process, Maharaj would eventually say that it was not necessary, encouraging seekers to engage in a (false) “self” inquiry or “self inventory” and to find not "What They Are” but what they are not. He said: “It is enough to know what you are not.” 

There are other spiritual groups which also recommend self-inquiry or self-inventory, along with a second kind of inventory as well. Millions have come and gone through the doors of such groups and experienced no relief from their personality disorders and no real, significant change (just like the 2%-4% who remain). 

The co-founder of the largest such spiritual group bemoaned the fact in his later years that the “success rate” had become dismal and that the failure rate of their groups was soaring through the roof. He blamed the high failure rate on poor leadership and the fact that few remain who really know how to guide seekers through their steps. 

Some who remain spend a lifetime doing the self-inventory step (the “moral inventory” step,” they call it) over and over. What a heavy, rather than light, way to live. How drab. How boring. How self-focused to the exclusion of focusing on family.

Yet most never truly understand that the moral inventory is to be done only once and never truly understand the instruction to do a “personal inventory” on a daily basis (at least until they find all of the false personal / personality identifications which set the stage for personality disorders to manifest in the first place and which continue to drive the insane thoughts and words and actions of persons in those groups). Were they to find what can be found through "self-inquiry" or a "personal inventory," they would be done with it all and could then just live simply and naturally.

So what is the simple method which can work even for those who have “grave mental and emotional disorders" but who have not yet been totally lost in the deepest, darkest depths of psychoses? What was Maharaj’s plan? 

“…You should go back, reverse, to the source” 

 and

“Follow the same path by which you came.” 

That is, go back to “The Child Ignorance Stage” (known here as “The Child No-Knowing Stage”) in which there are not yet any of the assigned and assumed personality identities which will soon come via insane programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and indoctrination and brainwashing;

in which there is not yet a mind which will form as the child is taught nonsense and learned ignorance"; and in which there are not yet any ignorant and insane and warped ideas, concepts, notions, perceptions, and perspectives (a.k.a., “beliefs”).

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 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 DARK TRIAD

The disorders grouped into what is called “The Dark Triad” offer examples of three of the most adverse ways by which personality (and the disorders which always accompany them) impact the relative existence.

Granted, there are many disorders which have been addressed here with seekers and there are many examples of persons

(1) becoming aware of the personalities / personas / roles which have been driving their thoughts and words and actions and subsequently

(2) being freed from those influences. 

In the case of those with “The Dark Triad” disorders, however, little or no change or freedom has come. Narcissists will usually remain narcissists. As for sociopaths and psychopaths, this was offered by one who is versed in the field to explain why they will likely never be freed from being driven by the agendas of their disorders: 

"There are structural abnormalities in the brains of psychopaths (and the same have been found in the brains of many sociopaths), so treatment methods are often ineffective. Some studies have obtained far from optimistic results, ranging from little improvement in psychopathy with treatment to treatment seeming to exacerbate psychopathic behavior."

For those who hope that the sociopaths or psychopaths in their lives might eventually change, consider that fact: even if they seek treatment, which they are never likely to do, oftern the treatment makes their disorder worse because they become enraged by any suggestion that they have certain flaws which need to be addressed.

Because of that fact, the case here is that decades have been spent working with those who would be free of the effects of other personality disorders, but no time is wasted on those displaying the Sociopathic Personality Disorder or the Psychopathic Personality Disorder. (Narcissists are given a chance, but usually they will be sent on their way promptly if they make clear that they, too, are going to be resistant to truth.)

In the case of other disorders, some of which also generate serious relative consequences, there is often a chance that change can come. In the case of all who are lost in their body identification and mind identification and personality identifications, change has been seen if the willingness and the readiness are both present.

In such cases, the symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness (which Maharaj identified as “ignorance, stupidity, and insanity”) can be addressed, sometimes via the non-dual understanding but in other cases through treatment by qualified professionals.

Presently in the U.S. and in far too many other places around the globe, the case if that those symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness are now actually being lauded.

Not long ago, a member of one of the two major party candidates who was running for the office of the President of the United States - when a poll revealed that his supporters are often among the the less educated - said: “I love the poorly educated!” Wonder why?

Linguists, researchers, and journalists have used an algorithm known as the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Test which analyses a speaker's word choice, sentence structure, etc. and then calculates a grade-level ranking.

The test measures the complexity or simplicity of a speaker's diction and syntax and then determines the level of education which is the equivalent of that level vocabulary, sentence structure, etc. The test revealed that the candidate speaks at a 4th grade level, indicating that his communication skills are same as a child with only a fourth grade education.

The greatest problem facing humanity is this: the Ultimate Sickness is spreading and becoming more prevalent, and there are those who – rather than trying to be free of the symptoms such as ignorance – are instead ennobling ignorance. 

In August of 2008, then Candidate Barack Obama addressed the core issue with certain politicians who hate science and facts and who prefer to tap into their supporters' preference for a Christian home schooling curriculum and who disdain public education and who really hate universities and formal learning in general. Of those, he said: 

"It's like these guys take pride in being ignorant." 

Once, while offering a commencement address at a university, he said: 

“In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue“ 

and 

“It’s not cool to not know what you’re talking about. That’s not keeping it real, or telling it like it is. That’s not challenging political correctness. That’s just not knowing what you’re talking about.” 

He added: 

“When our leaders express a disdain for facts, when they’re not held accountable for repeating falsehoods, and just making stuff up while actual experts are dismissed as ‘elitists,’ then we’ve got a problem. The rejection of facts, the rejection of reason and science, that is the path to decline.” 

His words might be unique in both of those speeches, but his pointers adumbrate a message which is as old as that offered by the first "non-dualist" who realized - as Maharaj did eventually - that the problems of humanity center in the mind. 

That was exactly the conclusion Maharaj finally reached. Thus he said, alluding to the roots of the Ultimate Sickness / the Ultimate Illness: 

"All illness begins in the mind." 

"Your confusion is . . . in your mind." 

"Distrust your mind, and go beyond." 

"There is no chaos in the world except the chaos which your mind creates." 

" . . . The mind obscures and distorts." 

"It is the mind that creates illusion." 

"Don't rely on your mind for liberation. It is the mind that brought you into bondage. Go beyond it altogether." 

And where are assigned and assumed personality identifications stored? In the mind, of course. It’s all related.

Both ignorance and identification bring heaviness and darkness. The antidote? 

“The Light Triads,” which include: 

1. true modesty
2. humility
3. awareness 

1. empathy
2. a sense of oneness
3. an ability to differentiate between “love” and Real Love

1. Freedom from learned ignorance
2. access to wisdom
3. being sane

1. Knowing all that you are not
2. abiding naturally rather than unnaturally or supernaturally
3. functioning spontaneously 

and

1. casting aside all beliefs
2. being identity-less and
3. being concept-less . . . 

. . . to name but a few.

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.
