Why So Few Will Ever Be Freed of Their Distorted and Delusional Thoughts and Beliefs 
Part One 

A woman shared recently that she had been diagnosed with "Silent GERD" a.k.a. "Silent Reflux" a.k.a. "Laryngopharyngeal Reflux"(LPR). 

(LPR) is similar to another condition - gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) - which results when the contents of the stomach back up (a.k.a., "reflux"), but the symptoms of LPR are often different from those which are typical of GERD. 

She had been suffering from esophageal hemorrhaging as a result of the LPR but had none of the other symptoms which manifest with GERD; thus, the LPR went undetected for months. The sickness is similar to high blood pressure or hypertension (often called "the silent killer") in that both can manifest with no obvious symptoms to indicate that something’s wrong.

(The same can happen with the Covig-19 virus.)

Because neither she nor the "experts" knew what her "real problem" was, it went untreated for far longer than might have otherwise been the case. 

Yesterday, reference was made to the trillions who have been heavily-engaged for thousands of years and into the present day with a variety of religions, spiritual movements, ideologies, philosophies but who - like the woman mentioned above - have a "real problem" which is going untreated because it was not diagnosed. Their real problem: the Ultimate Sickness and the delusional and distorted thinking and beliefs and other symptoms and effects which come with it.

Why do religious and / or spiritual going and doing and zooming not address their real problem? Because what persons have been receiving historically and are receiving now in their various venues adds to their distortions and delusions and because their distorted and delusional beliefs have not been diagnosed in those venues and instead have - in most cases - been reinforced and even lauded. 

Moreover, just as many people with high blood pressure don’t even know they have it, and just as is the case with LPR, most persons with the Ultimate Sickness do not have a clue that they have it. The difference?

1. GERD has become a global issue with millions and maybe billions suffering from it to one degree or another, while the number of cases of LPR cannot be known because it continues to go undiagnosed so often; 

2. an estimated 103 million U.S. adults - that's 1 in every 3 American adults - have high blood pressure and the estimate is that over one billion persons around the globe suffer from high blood pressure without knowing it; 

but 

3. the Ultimate Sickness, per Maharaj, likely affects 99.9% of all persons on the planet. 

Thus, there is no sickness as prevalent and widespread as the Ultimate Sickness, and there is no sickness which is undetected so often.

LPR is frequently undetected; hypertension is frequently undetected; but the Ultimate Sickness is almost always undetected. 

A few might have heard of LPR; more have likely heard of hypertension; but almost none have heard of "the Ultimate Sickness"; therefore, almost all persons will move through their post-programming, post-conditioning, post-acculturation, post-domestication, post-brainwashing, and post-indoctrination existence in a hypnotic, mesmerized, sleep-walking manner, plagued by the undiagnosed and undetected symptoms of the Sickness which include: 

according to Maharaj, "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity"; 

minds filled with distorted and delusional thoughts and beliefs and perceptions; 

lives impacted by the mental and emotional side effects of the Sickness; 

an inability to distinguish true from false and, therefore, the propensity to believe lies; 

a blind willingness to believe that images are real, to have no clue about what who / what they are, a tendency to talk in one's sleep; and the habit of working and driving and walking and talking while asleep; 

a blind willingness to accept as true, without questioning to even the slightest degree, the concepts and beliefs that are taught by authority figures and to believe the most unbelievable tales that those figures dream up; 

a blind willingness to accumulate the various forms of the sickness and then to pass them along to family members and friends and associates . . . with pride in having done so; 

a blind willingness to accept with faith beliefs that have no basis in fact and that cannot possibly be proved; to be so delusional that "one" is believed to be "two" (or more); 

a blind willingness to believe that learned ignorance is wisdom; to suffer willingly and repeatedly the consequences of what Maharaj called "learned ignorance"; to lose all ability to detect nonsense when it is heard; 

a blind willingness to allow subconscious motivators (a.k.a., personality / personalities) to determine every thought and word and action while believing that one is consciously choosing to think what is thought, to say what is said, and to do what is done; to be asleep but to believe that one is awake; 

a blind willingness to be self-destructive; to exhibit impaired judgment; to be unreasonable and illogical; to display unstable and inappropriate emotions (that is, being emotionally-intoxicated); to be religiously or spiritually intoxicated; to have hallucinations (such as believing that you can hear a supernatural being from another world and to believe that such a being is actually talking to you); 

a blind willingness to believe that the not-special is special; to believe that absolutes can be applied to things relative; to be disorganized and confused while thinking that you are organized and thinking clearly; to develop extreme dependencies on people and groups and leaders and on powers that are supposedly living in unseen worlds; to be unable to cope; to be in a state of unwarranted fear; to constantly desire more and more of what is already making one sick; 

a blind willingness to feel guilt and self-blame that have no basis in fact; to behave like a six-year old child for an entire manifestation, even during "the adult years"; to be preoccupied with "self" (with the false selves or false identities that are assumed and thought to be real); to play a role on a stage and believe the character is real; 

a blind willingness to be driven by the hidden agendas of assigned or assumed personas / personalities / false identities; 

a blind willingness to believe that a physical, plant food body can disintegrate, re-integrate, and last for eternity and can feel pain or ecstasy for eternity; and 

a blind willingness to suffer and then still believe that suffering can be good and can bring with it certain advantages or benefits; ad infinitum. 

And most persons will never be freed of their distorted and delusional thoughts and beliefs or any of a myriad of other symptoms and effects because the Sickness is - like hypertension - a "silent killer." 

While some eight million people around the globe die annually from high blood pressure without ever having known they had the illness, billions and trillions will eventually die from the Ultimate Sickness during the coming years without ever having known they had the Sickness. 

Some will commit suicide; some will commit murder-suicide; as for most women killed annually in the U.S., they will die during a breakup involving persons with the Sickness whose assumed personas believe that they are being attacked; 

many will die from the consequences of the Addictive Personality Disorder because millions are driven by the Sickness to try to escape and avoid the realities of the relative existence, killing themselves and / or others while under the influence; and 

many will die because they will be killed by the followers of sociopathic and psychopathic leaders who gin up hatred of "the other" and who inspire fighting and conflict and war as those insane leaders seek more and more control and power because both the followers and their leaders have full-blown cases of the Sickness. 

Of course all of that "dying" involves the relative only and means nothing in terms of the functioning of the totality because the same ultimate fate awaits all humans, but the one offering the Ultimate Medicine is concerned about alleviating all of the misery and suffering which happens before the "dying" occurs. 

Regarding that, Maharaj made clear that there are hundreds of sources of pain, but only one source of misery and suffering, namely, the Ultimate Sickness and its symptoms and effects. Thus, he said, "The teacher's sole concern is with suffering and the ending of suffering." 

This pointer has been offered here over the years: "Actually, there are only 'relative results' to anything that happens during the manifestation. There are no 'post-relative-existence results' of any kind because there is no 'one' remaining after the relative existence to experience anything, including 'results'." 

How, then, is one to know if he or she has contracted the Ultimate Sickness, much less become willing to seek the Ultimate Medicine to treat that Sickness?

More on that tomorrow.

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.]

MISTAKING WITNESSING FOR JUDGING AND MISTAKING THE IDENTIFYING OF KEY SYMPTOMS OF THE ULTIMATE MEDICINE (WHICH MAHARAJ IDENTIFIED AS "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, AND INSANITY") WITH "CRITICIZING THE MASSES FOR BEING IGNORANT, STUPID, AND INSANE" 
Part Five 

To Review:

The fourth of the five key pointers offered by one with the understanding which is often misinterpreted or distorted by listeners involves . . . 

4. confusing one's ability to spot all forms of duality, including the duality-based thoughts and words and actions exhibited by so-called alt-righters, white supremacists, racists, modern-day fascists, those who attack "the other," etc. with the notion that the one able to see duality clearly is also judging and identifying the members of such groups as "the other." 

The education departments in universities offer Education 101, and in that basic, introductory course, almost all will offer an overview of the most effective method(s) for passing along what they call "teaching points." 

[Frequent visitors to the site understand that the focus here is on "un-teaching" and "unlearning," but pointers are offered along "the path" in order to move seekers to the next step and facilitate their reaching the end [specifically, per Maharaj, the end of all belief in learned ignorance and freedom from the effects of nonsensical programming, conditioning, etc.] 

So what do those who have studied the topic and found what is shared in common among the most effective ways to transmit pointers? 

a. Introduce an overview of the topic to be discussed. 

b. Offer the point. 

c. Explain the point. 

d. Offer examples or illustrations - or tell illuminating or clarifying stories - which help the listeners understand the point and which show the relevance of the point and show what can happen if the point is not understood or what can happen if the point is understood. 

e. Review the original point. 

f. If called for, present the point in another way so that any who did not understand it in its original form might be able to understand it if the point is presented in a different way. 

So, to #5: 

5. erroneously accusing Maharaj's expulsion of some from the loft as an act of anger which was rooted in a sense of separation and a sense of superiority 

and attacking and criticizing Maharaj for shifting from the use of a form of the Ultimate Medicine which differed from his earlier forms, including a Hindu / religious version of the Medicine and a Hindi / spiritual version of the Medicine and using in his later talks a psychology-based version of the Medicine which addressed the true roots of the Sickness, namely the mind and its contents. 

In the book SRI NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ and HIS EVOLUTION, these are among some of the critical quotes regarding Maharaj: 

After he advised seekers to give up their religious work and spiritual work and to stop reading I AM THAT and listen to his later talks: 

"The later books of Maharaj do not enjoy the same clarity as 'I Am That'. It seems that he himself got complicated or rather evolved himself or declined maybe as happens to many teachers. It is also the lack of quality of translation in the level of "I Am That". 

After he transitioned beyond religious and spiritual versions of the Medicine and focused on the psychological aspects of the Sickness: 

"At first when he was still listening to his guru he was telling the truth, like he did in 'I AM THAT.' In his other talks, his ego made him start telling things he dreamed up on his own that were not true." 

After he began discussing on the mind / psychological aspects of the Sickness and what can be done to address that: 

"He deteriorated from one of the great spiritual men of all times to one of the least spiritual people of all times." 

The percentage of "non-dual teachers" that use a religion or spirituality-based version of the Medicine must be close to 99.9%. 

The number that focus on the mental / mind-driven / psychological roots - and what can be done about those sources of the Sickness - must surely be a very small number. 

So the question is, "WHO cares?" 

Sages for ages have used that question as a teaching tool to use with seekers who are disturbed or troubled or offended by something, inviting them to pause and to reflect and to find which ego-state or personas are perceiving a sense of being interfered with or being threatened by someone or something or being hurt. 

The question is intended to remind them that they - mere composite unities of elemental plant food bodies which are circulating air and conscious-energy - cannot feel interfered or threatened or hurt. Earth elements cannot feel interfered with or threatened; air cannot feel interfered with or threatened; energy cannot feel interfered with or threatened. 

Only some personality (accepted erroneously as a true identification) can feel as if its hidden agenda is being interfered with or threatened, and when that happens, a warped mind - filled with nonsense via programming, conditioning, etc. - will trigger a mouth and the mouth will start spouting all sorts of nonsensical statements of anger or rage or hurt or victimization.

Thus, the question now is, which "WHO" is it - which false, assumed ego-state - cares about which way one becomes freed of false beliefs, distortions, delusions, and the concepts rooted in nonsensical programming, conditioning, etc.? 

Must not such "WHO's" be persons / personas who are highly invested in "their" way and their way alone? 

If so, must not such a person surely be one who is un-realized if she or he is still exhibiting the arrogance which believes that only his or her way is acceptable? 

For over 5000 years, millions of Hindus have come and gone, all the while believing that their way is the right way. For thousands of years, millions of Jews have come and gone, all the while believing that their way is the only acceptable way. 

For nearly 2000 years, billions of Christians have come and gone, all the while believing that their way is the only acceptable way. For more than 1400 years, millions of Sunni and Shia Muslims have come and gone, all the while believing their way is the only acceptable way. 

For several thousand years, billions of Buddhists have come and gone, all the while believing that their way is the way to find what should be sought. And for thousands of years, millions of non-dualists have come and gone, all the while believing that their way is the way to find what should be sought.

Trillions of persons for thousands of years have come and gone, all the while believing their religion, their spiritual approach, their philosophy, their understanding, their ideology, their way is the best way or the right way or even the only way to find what is being sought and to gain that which is desired for eternity. 

And must not such types be highly attached to the concepts and beliefs which are clung to at the third step on "the path" where persons believe that their role of "The Super Religious One" or "The Spiritual Giant" or "The Super Seeker" or "The Deep and Profound Thinker" or "The Super Knower," etc., etc., etc. is real? 

Again, the question is, "WHO" cares about how one is freed from distortion, as long as such freedom happens? 

The APA notes that one counselor working with a client whose thinking in dominated by distortions and delusions might use psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapies. Another might use behavior therapy. A third might use cognitive therapy. 

A fourth might try humanistic therapy, including client-centered therapy or Gestalt therapy or Existential therapy. A fifth might use a holistic approach and treat body and mind, understanding that some issues which appears to have psychological roots might actually have a physiological root. (For example, the Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder might be a mental disorder but many times it is a disorder rooted in a simple mineral imbalance in the body.) 

Meanwhile, a sixth therapist might use an EMDR approach to address the issues. 

Often, if a therapist sees that one method is not working, that therapist might shift to another method or to a combination of other methods. So what, if the client's thinking is freed of distortions and delusions? Most would not object to a counselor seeking the method which is most effective with a particular client. 

So why the big brouhaha - why so much hubbub, such an uproar, why so much fuss, why such a hullabaloo, why so much agitation - when Maharaj did the same or when the same happens here? 

When one version of the Ultimate Medicine was seen by Maharaj to be ineffective long-term, why so much emotional intoxication around the "teacher" trying a different method? 

The answer: Only because of egotism and arrogance. Some "special / Special" identity has been assumed and egotism and other ego-defense mechanisms have been triggered because a false identity believes that it is being attacked. 

So again, it is asked: "'WHO' really cares?" 

The seeker that finally reaches a "no-'WHO'-ness" state is the only one that will not care about such silliness. 

If one wants to pursue freedom from distortion and delusion and the effects of nonsensical programming, conditioning, etc., via a method other than the one offered here, then rock and roll; however, the experience here (which involved years of seeking unsuccessfully and which has involved witnessing the failures of other seekers who have sought in a variety of venues) is this: 

in the many decades of working with seekers using religion and dogma to try to free themselves of distorted and delusional thinking and beliefs, there has never been seen a single case where that worked long-term. Usually, what they are exposed to results in even more distorted and delusional thinking and beliefs. 

(Does that point inspire anger? WHO is angered?)

And come this July, there will have been decades of working with seekers during many of those years while using spirituality to try to free them of distorted and delusional thinking and beliefs without ever having seen a single case where that worked long-term. Usually, what they are exposed to results in even more distorted and delusional thinking and beliefs. 

(Does that point inspire anger? WHO is angered?)

Maharaj, after decades of trying religion and / or spirituality-based methods and religion and / or spiritual-based versions of the Ultimate Medicine, reported that he saw no long-term "success" with the use of either to try to treat the Ultimate Sickness; 

thus, when it became clear to him that the Ultimate Sickness was not a result of persons having learned too little dogma and was not a result of persons having a "sick spirit" or a "spiritual malady" and therefore not being "spiritual enough," then it also became clear to him that the Sickness is actually rooted in the mind and, therefore, needs a form of the Medicine which addresses the mind problem. 

He saw that almost all persons are programmed, conditioned, acculturated, domesticated, brainwashed, and indoctrinated to believe in magical forces who are living in other worlds and who are controlling everything in this world and who will supposedly empower persons and will supposedly reward persons both now and forevermore if they believe in those powers and worship them and praise them. 

And when the threat to non-believers or questioners or doubters is "misery and suffering now and for eternity," then the impetus is usually there to go along with what persons believe in that regard. 

Here, the question when that is the case is, "WHO is going along without questioning? WHO is accepting as a result of blind faith alone the supposed validity of tales which were dreamed up by persons thousands and thousands of years ago who then passed down their dreamed-up beliefs to persons who to this very day still accept as truth those ancient, fictional tales which were based in myth and superstition and ignorance?"

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.]

PRY BARS, CROWBARS, NAIL PULLERS, AND NON-DUAL POINTERS

It's time for a break to re-focus. Whether seekers are (1) monomaniacs (as obsessive seekers often are) or (2) scattered, go-do-zoomers who race about and engage in as many "self-improvement" activities offered in as many "self-improvement places" as possible, re-focusing is often called for more than those in either group ever realize.

If studying something in the distance by the use of binoculars, for example, there can come a point when one needs to lower the binoculars, rest the eyes or exercise them with a few squints, and then return to looking through the binoculars.

The same applies when seeking: sometimes focus can be lost through excessive pursuit. Often, new methods of seeking can lead persons astray as they become bored with "the old way" or become attracted by the shiny concepts being waved about by "the Big Name Teachers" (as Maharaj called them while warning seekers to stay away from those types).

Thus a break to refocus on the actual task at hand.

Maharaj explained the sole task of the one that would provide a version of the Ultimate Medicine which may well treat the Ultimate Sickness, namely, to free persons of the effects of the three key symptoms of the Sickness which he identified as "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity."

[NOTE: He did not say that he was about the business of dealing with "ignorant, stupid and insane persons." He make clear that persons - with their supposedly personal traits and identities - are all illusions, and illusions cannot be ignorant, stupid and insane. So what can be ignorant, stupid and insane? The beliefs which "persons" have been taught by "other persons" via the use of ignorant, stupid and insane programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing, and indoctrination. 

Instead, he made clear that the role of the one sharing non-dual pointers is to eliminate all learned ignorance and all taught stupidity and all of the resultant insanity handed down by persons exposed to ignorant, stupid and insane programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing, and indoctrination; 

thus, non-dual pointers are merely tools which are used in an effort to separate persons from their belief in all of the learned ignorance which has come via repeated and long-term exposure to ignorant, stupid and insane programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing, and indoctrination.]

Each year following the winter months as the temperature becomes warm enough for wood stain to dry thoroughly, a man named Julio comes over to repair the large wooden deck across the rear of the house. We begin by testing all of the boards by applying some foot pressure to each to determine which are becoming weak or even rotting after months of exposure to the winter rains.

Once identified, Julio uses his pry bar

 

and crowbar and nail puller to separate each of the flawed boards from the substructure to which they are attached. It would be impossible to try to simply free one thing from another when they have been so firmly joined and will resist completely any minor effort to separate them.

The same is true with the human mind and the beliefs and the ignorant and stupid and insane programming, conditioning, domestication, acculturation, brainwashing, and indoctrination which are stored therein. The mind becomes attached to all of that and no minor effort can possibly separate them. A special tool is required to assist in that task.

And that is all this is about. Maharaj said that "realization is simply the state which comes when one's mind has been freed of its attachment to learned ignorance."

One website describes the pry bars, crowbars, and nail pullers which it sells as "the greatest demolition tools ever."

With humans, what needs demolition? The human mind because it is the seat of all ignorant and stupid and insane thoughts which inspire ignorant and stupid and insane words which are always followed by ignorant and stupid and insane actions.

Those being driven by the Ultimate Sickness's symptoms of ignorance and stupidity and insanity perpetually normalize and / or minimize and / or deny and / or ignore their Sickness and the relative destruction and misery and suffering which accompany the duality-based Sickness.

By contrast, it is only those moving toward wisdom and sanity that at least get a slight glimpse of their Sickness and its consequences and acknowledge its effects and thereafter consciously choose to seek and find and then maintain a state of wellness.

But that state can only be reached if a seeker of such wellness . . .

(a) allows one that has reached a state of freedom from ignorance and stupidity and insanity to use the tools which she or he have collected along the way

and if that seeker of such wellness

(b) allows the freed one to use the proper tools required to pry loose the ignorant and stupid and insane beliefs which the human mind becomes so attached to

and if that seeker of such wellness then

(c) allows the one now free of learned ignorance to use the tools known as "non-dual pointers" to pry apart (1) the ignorant and stupid and insane beliefs from (2) the mind which is presently preventing the seeker from reaching a state of "realization" (that is, "a state of being freed from learned ignorance and the attachment to stupid and insane beliefs and thereby allow wisdom and sanity to manifest").

Using properly the non-dual pointers which are similar to a pry bar, crowbar, and nail puller (in that all four are effective tools to use for demolition), then ignorance and nonsense can be demolished and then allow for the brain - which can function in a wise and sane manner - to be restored.

Any seeker wanting to reach some state other than the one as defined above by Maharaj will never, ever function under the auspices of wisdom and sanity.

To begin the process of warped-mind-demolition, first see the lies believed in order to discard those and then see the truth afterwards and then you will be able to differentiate between the not-real and the real for the remainder of the manifestation.

To be continued.

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.
