    • The antithesis of “hard” is “SOFT”. ☝️

    • 🐟 16. YOGA/RELIGION:

      According to some sources, YOGA (authentic religion) was introduced to human society approximately seventeen thousand years ago, via the Ādiyogī (first religionist), Mahādeva Śiva, in His form known as Dakṣiṇāmūrti, in the subcontinent named Bhārata (India). Lord Shiva is universally recognized to be the first Avatar, that is, the first person to be born without sin (in other words, a pure embodiment of the Divine; enlightened from birth). Whether or not these historical events really occurred is irrelevant to the purposes of this chapter and this scripture.

      Other sources claim that RELIGION began when Lord Brahmā spoke the four “Vedas” (books of knowledge) in ancient Sanskrit, the essential teachings of which are non-dual, that is to say, describe everything in existence having the same ground of being. In other words, “All is One” without a second. ‘Sarvam khalvidam brahma’ (Chandogya Upanishad 3.14) teaches that ‘All this is indeed Brahman’ (“Brahman” referring to the TOTALITY of existence/non-existence). Read previous chapters of “F.I.S.H” to understand the concept of Universal Consciousness.

      Since then, systems of religion have evolved or have been revealed by prophetic figures on the continent of ASIA.
      Supernatural mythologies and superstitions developed in other locations too, most of which featured animistic narratives and primitive rituals, but not quite to the same philosophical level of the monotheistic and monistic religions of Middle East Asia, Bhārata, and China.

      The English word “religion” originates from the Latin verb “religare”, meaning “to join or unite”. It is the precise equivalent of the Sanskrit noun “yoga”, from the verbal root “yuj” (to attach, harness, or yoke). Thus, religion/yoga implies union with the Supreme Self, or, to provide a more accurate and profound definition, the understanding and realization that there is nothing BUT the Supreme Self (“Paramātmāṇ”, in Sanskrit). Other definitions include “union of the body and the mind” and “union with God”, both of which are valid in the appropriate context.

      Perhaps the best definition of yoga is “the UNION of the relative and absolute”, meaning one who has fully realized himself to be “Brahman”, but knows precisely how to integrate that understanding within temporal existence, just as, for example, Lord Jesus Christ so admirably demonstrated during His public ministry over two millennia ago, in the land of Palestine (now Israel).

      Union with the Divine has no circumstantial prerequisites. It is NOT necessary to do anything to wake-up from this cosmic illusion and to become self-realized (that is, to ‘make real’ the true self). Spiritual awakening occurs according to the preordained “Story of Life”, as explained in this “Final Instruction Sheet for Humanity”, although most (but not all) persons who experience awakening, liberation and enlightenment do so after practicing some form of religion/yoga, just as most persons (but not all) who become wealthy perform wealth-creation activities such as operating a business enterprise or composing a popular song. Some become instantly wealthy by being born into an aristocratic family, winning a lottery, gambling in a casino, by being the recipient of a donation, or by being the beneficiary of a bequeathed fortune.

      The REAL corollary of religion/yoga is to improve the human being – to make one more gentle, loving, forgiving, self-controlled, moral, holy and righteous – none of which necessarily unites the self with the Self. Union with the Divine depends solely on Divine Grace (or, as mentioned above, predestination). Most religious teachings focus on this self-improvement aspect, rather than on the “goal” of attaining unalloyed peace.

      Practically all religious precepts are prescriptive, that is, they instruct their followers to perform certain actions in order to achieve a particular objective. However, arguably the most beneficial teachings are DESCRIPTIVE, that is, they describe existence as it is, knowing that nothing can be done to alter the course of history. If a certain event is destined to take place, nothing or nobody can prevent that destined occurrence.

      There are FOUR systems of religion/yoga:

      1. The religion of ACTION/labour. This is the simplest method of union with God, known as “karma yoga” in Bhārata, and is recommended by some experts as the one with which to begin one’s spiritual journey. It involves a worker or businessman (or even a monarch) performing his duties with the goal of using his excess funds to support his spiritual preceptor or church/temple/mosque. It may also include performing beneficial deeds for one’s master, such as cleaning his house or temple. Karma yoga is the least discussed system of religion, possibly because it is, as mentioned, rather simplistic, and because it is extremely unlikely that a karma yogi can ever attain to full union via this path alone.
      Even though the author of this Holy Scripture is the current World Teacher, he began his adult spiritual journey by diligently practicing karma yoga in the temple of a local religious organization. So, even though it may seem simplistic and inane, “Working for God” is truly a wonderful introduction to the spiritual path, even if it rarely results in a practitioner becoming a fully-awakened and enlightened sage.

      2. DEVOTIONAL religion/yoga: By far the most popular form of religion, but also the most perilous. This system of religion, known as “bhakti yoga” in Bhārata, comprises of reading (or hearing) about the personal conception of the Godhead (usually a Divine Incarnation), offering prayers, singing or chanting hymns, performing rituals, and serving the spiritual teacher, with the goal of totally surrendering one’s will.
      The peril lies in the fact that a large number of devotees become radicalized towards his or her own group or spiritual leader (“guru”, in Sanskrit), unwilling to accept the validity of other traditions or paths.
      The essence of love is the desire for all living beings to find true happiness. When we want the best for all creatures, then we can honestly say that we love everybody equally. One who appears to love one person more than another, in fact, loves nobody. True, unconditional love revolves around sacrificing one’s selfish desires for those of his or her superiors, whether that be one’s parents, husband, employer, or spiritual master, even if they are imperfect. Should a child disobey its mother just because the mother is flawed? Of course not! This paradigm is applicable to everyone, without exception.

      Cont…

    • 3. INTELLECTUAL union: This is known as “jñāna yoga” in Bhārata and as “gnosticism” in European-based languages, and is founded on the investigation and contemplation of advanced metaphysical concepts. Much of this Holy Scripture could be classified under this system of religion, which explains why very few persons actually read this document – this yoga attracts only highly-intelligent persons.
      It is conceivable that, in the future, the study of neuroscience and physics (especially quantum mechanics) will become a legitimate aspect of jñāna yoga, or possibly even entirely replace traditional jñāna yoga, if physics is able to scientifically demonstrate that the human being is an expression of Universal Consciousness (“Brahman”, in Sanskrit). ). In the Western World, academic philosophy, coupled with theoretical physics, particularly since the late nineteenth century, has been the most widespread expression of gnosticism, since it endeavours to uncover truth.
      No matter what system of religion one initially practices, it is virtually mandatory for an aspiring religionist (“yogi”, in Sanskrit) to have an inclination towards the systematic study of the King of Sciences (as Lord Krishna calls it in the “Bhagavad-gītā” portion of “Mahābhārata”), if he is to become truly enlightened, as defined in the next chapter. Despite its name, the Path of Knowledge can include acts of devotion towards one’s teacher, thus integrating the heart and the mind, as well as periodic meditation.

      4. The EIGHT-LIMB yoga system: “aṣṭāṅga yoga”, as it is known in the ancient language of Bhārata, has a defined series of eight steps or stages, beginning with moral dictums or injunctions, and culminating in a state of “steady mind (or unwavering intellect)”.
      In his “Yoga Sutras”, the ancient Indian sage Patañjali defined the eight limbs as follows: yama (abstinences), niyama (observances), asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (absorption). Samadhi is by far the most misunderstood concept in yoga. It refers to the state of true peace of mind, which is actually the natural state of being of the human mind, and not to some ecstatic or enstatic feeling of euphoric bliss, which is, by nature, temporary.
      Despite what most believe, the third stage of this yoga system does not involve a multitude of complex physical poses, but simply sitting with one’s legs crossed and locked, with one’s arms fully extended and resting on the knees. The purpose of sitting in this “lotus position” (“padmāsana”, in Sanskrit), or at least simple sitting positions, was in order to execute meditation and concentration in the higher steps. The myriad stretching exercises were devised in later centuries, presumably for those persons who were too inflexible to sit immediately in “padmāsana”. Having stated that, modern yoga poses are highly-recommended for anyone and everyone, whether theistic or irreligious, because they bestow enormous benefits to one’s health, particularly as one advances in age. That’s something I learnt the hard way, unfortunately. Aṣṭāṅga yoga is ideal for persons who are averse to devotional religions because there is no requirement of belief in God.

      There is no reason why one cannot practice MORE than one yoga system simultaneously, but the typical person is usually attracted to devotional religion, because it is the most instinctive one. A child is innately attached to his or her parents, in a strong familial bond, and the attachment between a devotee and his teacher (or to an Avatar/God) is a natural extension of this bond.

      However, the MOST beneficial spiritual practice is to “rest imperturbably as Flawless Awareness”, that is, to regress into one’s inner self (the sense of the unqualified “I am”), or return attention to its Source, without the affliction of any belief system, thus transcending all mundane concepts. This can occur during virtually any daily activity, and if practiced for short periods throughout the day, it eventually becomes one’s normal way of being. This is sometimes referred to as the “direct path”, or somewhat less accurately, the “pathless path”. In this practice there is no separation of what is aware and of what appears – no presumption of a perceiver and a perceived, or of a doer and what is done. Other contemplative techniques are focused on an object, such as a person (usually God) or a specially-formulated prayer (“mantra”, in Sanskrit), whereas this form of meditation is the simple recognition of the eternal Self by the eternal Self.

      When coupled with a conscious avoidance of the five forms of suffering, due to the abandonment of the notion of personal authorship mentioned in Chapter 15, this self-abidance brings about pure peace, a peace which surpasses anything previously imagined – truly beyond human understanding. That perfect peace is the fundamental nature of our existence. This is genuine yoga/religion – union of the self with the Self – for there is but ONE existence-consciousness-peace (“sacchidānanda”, in Sanskrit).
      Any other practice merely reinforces the notion of a separate, independent agent, which is the very root of material bondage (“saṃsāra”, in Sanskrit), or to be more precise, the cause of all actual, psychological, suffering (“duḥkha”, in Sanskrit).

      “Insofar as you keep watching the mind and discover yourself as its witness, nothing else can project itself on the screen of consciousness.
      This is so, because two things cannot occupy the attention, at the same moment.
      Therefore, delve within and find out where thoughts arise.
      Seek the source of all thought and acquire the Self-knowledge, which is the awakening of Truth.”
      ************
      “The way to the realization of Truth, is neither through attachment nor renunciation.
      There is, in fact, no way.
      No means of any kind, can either indicate or grasp the Ultimate.”
      Ramesh Balsekar,
      Indian Spiritual Teacher.

      “The mind that seeks happiness (or enlightenment) is like a character in a movie in search for the screen. It will NEVER find the screen in the movie, although everything it finds is made of the screen.
      The mind that longs for enlightenment or happiness will never find what it is longing-for. And yet it is made out of what it is longing-for.”
      *************
      “The question ‘Am I aware?’ is a thought.
      The answer ‘Yes’ is a thought.
      What takes place between those two thoughts?
      The experience of being aware that I am aware.”
      Rupert Spira,
      English Spiritual Teacher.

    • 02. A BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF “LIFE”:

      Everything, both perceptible and imperceptible – that is, any gross or subtle OBJECT within the material universe which can ever be perceived with the cognitive faculties, plus the SUBJECT (the observer of all phenomena) – is to what most persons generally refer when they use the term “God”, since they usually conceive of the Primeval Creator as being the Perfect Person, and “God” (capitalized) is a personal epithet of the Unconditioned Absolute. However, this anthropomorphized conception of The Absolute is a fictional character of disparate mythologies.

      According to most every enlightened sage in the history of this planet, the Ultimate Reality is, far more logically, Impersonal Absolute NOTHINGNESS (otherwise called “The Tao”, “The Great Spirit”, “Brahman”, “Pure Consciousness”, “Eternal Awareness”, “Independent Existence”, “The Ground of All Being”, “Uncaused Nature”, “The Undifferentiated Substratum of Reality”, “The Unified Field”, et cetera).

      In other words, rather than the Supreme Truth being a separate Blissful, Supra-Conscious Being (The Godhead Himself or The Goddess), Ultimate Reality is Eternal-Existence Limitless-Awareness Unconditional-Peace ITSELF.

      Because the Unmanifested Absolute is infinite creative potentiality, “it” actualizes as EVERYTHING, in the form of temporary, cyclical universes. In the case of our particular universe, we reside in a cosmos consisting of space-time, matter and energy, without, of course, neglecting the most fundamental dimension of existence (i.e. conscious awareness – although, it is, being the subject, by literal definition, non-existent).

      Just as a knife cannot cut itself, nor the mind comprehend itself, nor the eyes see themselves, The Absolute cannot know Itself (or at least objectively EXPERIENCE Itself), and so, has manifested this phenomenal universe within Itself for the purpose of experiencing Itself, particularly through the lives of self-aware beings, such as we sophisticated humans. Therefore, this world of duality is really just a play of consciousness within Consciousness, in the same way that a dream is a person’s sleeping narrative set within the life-story of an ‘awakened’ individual.

      APPARANTLY, this phenomenal universe was created with the primal act (the so-called “Big Bang”), which started, supposedly, as a minute, slightly uneven ball of light, which in turn, was instigated, ultimately, by Extra-Temporal Supra-Consciousness. From that first deed, every motion or action that has ever occurred has been a direct (though, almost exclusively, an indirect) result of it.

      Just as all the extant energy in the universe was once contained within the inchoate singularity, Infinite Consciousness was NECESSARILY present at the beginning of the universe, and is in no way an epiphenomenon of a neural network. Discrete consciousness, on the other hand, is entirely dependent on the neurological faculty of individual animals (the more highly-evolved the species, the greater its cognitive abilities).

      “Sarvam khalvidam brahma” (a Sanskrit maxim from the “Chandogya Upanishad”, meaning ‘all this is indeed Brahman’ or ‘everything is the Universal Self alone’). There is NAUGHT but Eternal Being, Conscious Awareness, Causeless Peace – and you are, quintessentially, that!
      This “Theory of Everything” can be more succinctly expressed by the mathematical equation:
      E=A͚ (Everything is Infinite Awareness).

      HUMANS are essentially this Eternally-Aware-Peace, acting through an extraordinarily-complex biological organism, comprised of the eight rudimentary elements – pseudo-ego (the assumed sense of self), intellect, mind, solids, liquids, gases, heat (fire), and ether (three-dimensional space). When one peers into a mirror, one doesn’t normally mistake the reflected image to be one’s real self, yet that is how we humans conventionally view our ever-mutating forms. We are, rather, in a fundamental sense, that which witnesses all transitory appearances.

      Everything which can be presently perceived, both tangible and immaterial, including we human beings, is a culmination of that primary manifestation. That is the most accurate and rational explanation for “karma” – everything was preordained from the initial spark, and every action since has unfolded as it was predestined in ETERNITY, via an ever-forward-moving trajectory. The notion of retributive (“tit for tat”) karma is just that – an unverified belief. Likewise, the notion of a distinct, reincarnating “soul” or “spirit” is largely a fallacious belief.

      Whatever state in which we currently find ourselves, is the result of two factors – our genetic make-up at conception and our present-life conditioning (which may include mutating genetic code). Every choice ever made by every human and non-human animal was determined by those two factors ALONE. Therefore, free-will is purely illusory, despite what most believe.

      As a consequence of residing within this dualistic universe, we experience a lifelong series of fluctuating, transient pleasures and pains, which can take the form of physical, emotional, and/or financial pleasure or pain. Surprisingly to most, suffering and pain are NOT synonymous.
      Suffering is due to a false sense of personal ‘doership’ – the belief that one is a separate, independent author of one’s thoughts, emotions, and deeds, and that, likewise, other persons are autonomous agents, with complete volition to act, think, and feel as they wish. Another way of stating the same concept is: suffering is due to the intellect being unwilling or unable to accept life as it manifests moment by moment.

      There are five SYMPTOMS of suffering, all of which are psychological in nature:
      1. Guilt
      2. Blame
      3. Pride
      4. Anxiety
      5. Regrets about the past and expectations for the future

      These types of suffering are the result of not properly understanding what was explained above – that life is a series of happenings and NOT caused by the individual living beings. No living creature, including Homo sapiens, has personal free-will. There is only the Universal, Divine Will at play, acting through every body, to which William Shakespeare famously alluded when he scribed “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
      The human organism is essentially a biopsychological machine, comprised of the five gross material elements and the three subtle material elements, listed above.

      The ANTIDOTE to all mental anguish is to firstly discern pain from suffering, then to achieve complete relief from that miserable state of existence, by abandoning the erroneous belief in personal authorship, and abiding in the primordial sense of being (the unqualified “I am”, which is one’s core identity). This is the very same peace which is experienced each night during the dreamless phase of the sleep cycle. This ‘resting imperturbably as Flawless Awareness’ can be practiced on a regular basis, until it is fully assimilated and integrated into one’s life.

      Every person, from time immemorial, has been either intentionally or unwittingly seeking such causeless peace, most commonly by practicing one of the four systems of YOGA (religion) delineated in the sixteenth chapter of this work, or else in creating wealth and the acquisition of material possessions, or in psycho-physical pleasures. That peace of mind is often referred to as “happiness”, “joy”, or “love”, and often presumed to be a temporal state, since many assume, incorrectly, that continuous peace is unavailable in this life.
      Fortunately, that is not the case – it is eminently possible to live one’s life acquainted with unbroken peace of mind, if destined.

      Following DHARMA (frameworks of authentic religion and societal duties) is not guaranteed to achieve that desired tranquillity of mind, but even so, it is beneficial for individuals, since it establishes a structure which enables one to more easily elevate oneself beyond the mundane, animalistic platform (i.e. the base pursuits of eating, sleeping and mating). Intrinsic to dharma is the division of the adult male population into the four classes of society and the inherent role of girls and women in society, as fully elucidated in latter chapters of this Holy Scripture.

      So, now that you understand life, and the reason why we are suffering here in this (ostensively) material universe, you are now able to be liberated from all mental suffering, RIGHT?

      WRONG! It is imperative to approach an authentic spiritual master to assist you to come to the above realization, by slowly undoing your past conditioning. Just as you have been conditioned over an entire lifetime to think one way, you need to be re-conditioned to think another way (in alignment with your essential identity as The Divine). For one who has himself for a teacher, that man has a veritable fool as his teacher.

      Even if you adhere closely to the precepts of a competent teacher, you may still not come to a full understanding of life, but if you are sincere, humble and dedicated, you will definitely find more peace in your daily life – all of which was DESTINED to occur, of course.

      Furthermore, if you are suitably-qualified and it was ordained, you may be fortunate enough to receive discipline from one of the EXTREMELY rare fully-enlightened masters residing on earth at any given time (perchance even the current World Teacher himself), and subsequently realize the aforementioned fundamental concepts, by diligently studying authoritative doctrines (especially the most accurate and complete of all extant Scriptures, this “Final Instruction Sheet for Humanity”), serving your guru with great reverence and devotion, and by deliberately avoiding undue harm to oneself, to other individuals, to society as a whole, and to the natural environment.

  4. It seems like… Destiny or to much coincidence have this notification. For the fact of that yesterday I was talking with My father about One of My plans after finishing high school, and the coincidence is that I said that My first step was take the course of superbrain and teach to someone My daily learning.
