QUESTION: You say you’re not a teacher, a guru etc. You say you’re not here to pass on your experiences of Reality. So what do your experiences mean?
ANSWER: I am growingly persuaded my experiences are for my benefit, so are tailored accordingly just for me. I don’t know why.
They are not experiences with a general meaning applicable to everyone, though they do have basic physical similarities with other historical experiences of Reality.
I feel my experiences are still developing me beyond just being a present day human.
Q: So your experiences have no message for humanity?
A: Not directly from me, no. My example might help, but that would be a process that’s not in my hands.
Q: Is that why you don’t teach, invite pupils, get into social internet sites, ask for money?
A: Yes. I’m directed and developed by my mystical experiences of Reality every moment of my life. There are more important things afoot for me than being merely human. For me, extraneous human clutter is dealt with by the fruits of discernment and avoidance.
I have the code word humans gave me when I was born – my human name. But now I wear the masks my experiences have given me. They help me endure the human experience.
Q: Presumably you have none of the natural human problems?
A: There’s nothing usual about human problems.
All human “problems” are man made, creations of the mind. The mind, like the “problems” it creates, dies on death. (Is everything outside Reality in entropy?).
Even if your troubles seem to come from another person or exterior circumstances, it is you that has allowed yourself into that situation. You are oblivious to the consequences you have allowed your mind to sleepwalk you into …
Your mind is in default most of the time, just going along with other defaulting minds without ever thinking for yourself – just going with the human herd. Do you have any real values, do you need what values you think you have or have you just accepted what stuck as you slept through a life without examination?
The mind works autonomously as a means of evolution. But uncontrolled, running mostly on default, it’s an impediment to human development. It denies humans the real contentment that MER (The Mystical Experience of Reality) indicates is every human’s true inheritance. Contentment is snatched away by minds running on default.
In Reality there are no problems. There’s no need for them this side of Reality either.
Q: What’s the answer?
A: I can only suggest just being still, getting down to examining the very roots of the “problems” you’ve allowed yourself to get into. This will need persistence, change.
Just persist. The practice becomes a habit, a powerful, transcending habit.
There are no “troubles” in Reality or real ones out of Reality, none whatsoever …
All your lifetime’s un-examined accretions of lust, anger, greed, all your personal, family, social relationships, ideological attachments, attitudes, and finally, ego are nothing to do with the real you buried under them. As you progress they will peel off as if you never had them. The real you will emerge in full bloom.
If you’re called to be a Seeker the process will soon grip you and lead you on. It’s an easier process for you. You were born for it.
However, all humans can find themselves, know themselves and be content this side of Reality.
Reality seeks you as much as you seek Reality. Reality is the real reason for being.
In his book “An Idealist View of Life,” Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan wrote:
“The realization of this undivided unitary life…is the essence of the spiritual life. Ordinarily we are not whole men, real individuals, but wrecks of men, shells of individuals. Our responses are formal and our actions are imitative. We are not souls but human automata.”
Note: Dr. Radhakrishnan was President of India for 5 years, V.P. for 10 years, and a professor at Oxford University for 16 years. I with met him in 1962 and 1963.

Thank you for your thoughtful forwarding of Dr. Radhakrishnan’s insight. It is an emphatic affirmation of the real reality of human existence.

Yes Keith your post makes a great deal of sense to me. In my case the path is a very long one indeed but I persist.
