NEEDLESS WORK and COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE ACCEPTANCE and THE CURSE OF HABITS
Defining Nisarga Yoga
At the simplest level, one may take “nisarga” to mean “natural.” As used most frequently, the term refers to the yoga of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj which advocates “natural living” or abidance as the natural state.
The Natural Disposition
Every form or space on the planet has an innate disposition. That natural, inherent, instinctive disposition is simple and uncomplicated, allowing for a relative existence that is undemanding, plain, minimalistic, unadorned, bare and fairly effortless at its core.
Be the reference to a rock or a flower or a bird or a tree or a fish or a deer, all among those happens spontaneously without thought, the result of a simple, no-mind, no-concept, no-belief, natural manner of functioning; too, that happens planet-wide without any exceptions, except for one exception.
When the Natural Disposition Became Skewed
The exception: the space or form called “humans.” As the brain increased over the millennia from a size that would fill one coffee cup to a size that would fill three-and-a-half coffee cups, a “mind” evolved; that is, the ability to store and retrieve data developed.
What actually came about were sections of the brain which work in combination to provide the capability to store information and to retrieve information, a process that happened spontaneously and naturally in order to perpetuate the species - such longing for perpetuation being “natural” once consciousness manifests.
(You do not have to train a bird to fly away from a human walking noisily through a forest. The consciousness automatically and spontaneously drives that behavior, and there is no mind - and thus no thought - involved in the movement of the bird. It is natural. The bird knows the I AM, even in the absence of language which allows the "thought" I AM to happen.)
How Ignorance-Based, Language-Borne Lies Began Spreading the Ultimate Sickness Across the Globe
Focus not on “pandemics.” They affect few, comparatively speaking. If seekers would be well and free, they are invited via the Nisarga Yoga to focus on the Ultimate Sickness which is infecting and affecting 97% or more of the persons on the planet.
It is a sickness which prevents a seeing of the unicity and which drives misperceived thoughts about separation and division and disharmony and better-than-ment, eliminating any chance for the "peace on earth" dream / wish that some persons call for annually.
Contrary to popular belief, everything in this universe evolved from one, single atom. There is a unity beyond the multiplicity; however, once language developed, humans began perpetuating dualistic beliefs that reinforced a false sense of separation.
They dreamed up the false concept of “time” and divided what is a continuous stream of happenings into groups and subgroups: millennia, centuries, decades, years, months, days, minutes, seconds, etc. Then they began telling lies that they thought to be truth.
The result is this: what had been a simple, uncomplicated, undemanding, plain, minimalistic, unadorned, bare and fairly effortless natural existence took on the character of being complex, complicated, demanding, elaborate, conspicuous, adorned, embellished, strenuous, unnatural and / or supernatural. Why?
Because that always happens when persons / personas are erroneously assumed to be real identities; thus, persons / personas live a lie when the their existence is based in erroneous beliefs.
How the Desire To Be Supernatural and To Live Supernaturally Has Almost Eliminated Natural Living Altogether
Few persons on the planet now live naturally. Unnatural and supernatural living have become the abnormal norm. While a relative existence that is marked by that which is complex, complicated, demanding, elaborate, conspicuous, adorned, embellished, and strenuous is unnatural, it is nevertheless sought by the masses. Why?
Magical, superstition-and-myth-based, mind-inspired, egocentric thinking has generated concepts about a god or gods, resulting in complicated efforts among most humans to try to live supernaturally rather than naturally.
More and more, it is lies (rooted in ignorance and misunderstanding) that have become widely-accepted as truth, such as this belief that humans once held on a near-global basis:
“There are powerful beings in other worlds that cause thunder” and “those powers use thunder for ‘good’ and ‘bad’ depending on the days of the week":
“If there is thunder on Sunday, wise men will die; if there is thunder on a Monday, it signals the death of many women; If there is thunder on Tuesday, it is a sign that there will be plenty of grain; if it thunders on Wednesday, then many prostitutes will die;
“if there is thunder on a Thursday, it is a sign that there will be plenty of sheep and corn; if it thunders on Friday, some great man or noble leader will die and that will trigger additional murders; if it thunders on a Saturday; it is a warning that a plague is coming and it will cause widespread death.”
An extreme example? No more extreme than believing that if you die killing Christians, you’ll be blessed with multiple virgins, prostitutes and wives in an afterlife paradise; no more extreme than believing that if you kill Muslims in foreign lands, you are a patriot; and no more extreme than believing that all Jews should be exterminated.
No more extreme than a preoccupation with blood, believing it has magical power if spread above a doorway; believing that it is "good" to beat yourself about the head and back with spikes and to walk through the streets in a holy parade of blood;
no more extreme than believing you will be in closer, conscious contact with a supreme power in another world if you drink blood in weekly or monthly services conducted in supposedly "holy" buildings;
no more extreme than believing that you should kill all persons who do believe in your concepts.
All of that is most unnatural, but all of that is believed in by (and is therefore driving the behavior of) billions of persons on the planet.
The Nisarga Yoga invites persons to abide as all other "non-human forms / spaces" on the planet, not in that supernatural fashion illustrated above but in a natural manner, free of belief in unnatural and supernatural concepts that drive such insane behavior.
The Ultimate Sickness, Mental Disorders, and Personality Disorders Have Spread Around the Globe
Yet few will ever find the Nisarga Yoga, much less full realization; therefore, such mental sickness as discussed above now dominates persons (the so-called “non-realized” humans) all around the globe.
The most nonsensical concepts imaginable have been dreamed up by controlling men and women and have been shared as “The Truth” or “The Secret” or “The Purpose” or “The Way” or “The Will of the Universe” or "The Sacred Contract" or "The Holy This or That" or as “God’s Infallible Word.”
The result is that natural abidance - which is still common among all that is manifest except “humans” - now happens infrequently among the vast majority of persons. The now-common mental sickness among persons is spread via the virus of ignorance. The Nisarga Yoga is the vessel which carries the Ultimate Medicine that can treat the sickness.
It is the yoga which can guide seekers along a “path” to being restored to reason and logic and wisdom as a result of being free of belief in false concepts, ideologies, myths, and superstitions.
It is the yoga which can result in an understanding of the functioning of the totality. It is a yoga that can make clear the difference in humanity’s quest for what is “false love” and can guide seekers to an understanding of the Oneness (and, thus, what True Love is).
It is the yoga which can eliminate supernatural efforts to live in an unnatural manner and can return persons (all of whom have been programmed and conditioned and acculturated and domesticated) to a condition of abidance in the style of their original nature;
it is a yoga which can guide seekers to a manner of functioning by which all that happens will happens naturally and spontaneously; and it is a yoga that will reveal a fashion of abidance which allows the seekers who complete all of the steps on the “path” to realization to be, once again, in touch with their innate and inherent and instinctive disposition.
