REALITY’S TEACHING – Part 2.

NO TEACHINGS, NO RECOMMENDATIONS?

Question: This blog is unique in many ways but one thing which stands out is its lack of your teaching on how to reach spiritual goals.

Everyone else teaches and recommends courses and so on, as you’ve touched on adversely in a previous blog. So is the absence of a teaching from you on purpose or accident?

Answer: On purpose. My experiences of Reality did not call for me to teach. My experiences did not come from teachings. They were unexpected, unsought, unprepared for, spontaneous.

In fact, mentally I didn’t feel qualified to have them. Once, I thought the particular experience I was having must have been meant for someone else.

I didn’t even tell anyone about them. I would have resisted any suggestion of sharing or teaching them.

I didn’t practice spiritual exercises before my experiences, nor was I called upon to any spiritual exercises afterwards.

So there are no practices I can recommend from first hand experience. So far as I’m concerned mystical experiences of Reality (MER) are caught not taught.

For these reasons I won’t recommend teachers, or courses that offer enlightenment.

However, I did eventually experiment with various meditational techniques from books and different ‘gurus’.

They helped mentally and perhaps physically. I got some helpful directions to consider.

But none of them added to my mystical experiences of Realty, (MER). Their main value was to recognise my experiences and show me I am a mystic.

Q: But you were initiated into what you’ve called, ‘a spiritual wisdom’ school.

A:  Yes, but by then my annual revelations had already happened to me.

Q:  So what did that particular school teach you?

A: It showed me I was not alone in my experiences. I was astonished to find my experiences have been known to mankind far longer into antiquity than any religions, God or gods or political constructs and philosophies of existence.

That school helped me to my spiritual feet, so to speak. identified my spiritual identity. They knew about my spontaneity but also had tradional secrets, techniques, including in meditation, on how to avoid the effects of the mind and how to deal with mischievous meditational phenomena for instance. The school tried to help initiates achieve spiritual revelation, none of which affected my experiences.

The other reason I don’t share or teach is I know from my mystical experiences that Reality is only relevant to individuals, those who are genuinely called, Seekers.

Those who are merely curious or persist in wanting to be better humans will find no solace here, as I warn in the opening pages of the Blog.

As each human individual is different, so even genuinely driven Seekers need different answers, different methods of communicating at different times to meet their unique, shifting, maturing spiritual condition.

There have been and still are traditional gurus you’ve never heard of who were or are skilled in using this person-to-person technique in bringing their qualified pupils into greater spiritual understanding.

“Even so”, Aloysius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, said in effect, “the mystical experience is the better way.”

Even this “hunger and thirst” of the Seeker, as the Christian bible calls it, will never fully achieve revelation unless Reality bestows it. You can’t earn the experience, so far as my experiences are concerned by books or teachers before your enlightenment. Afterwards there’s not much need anyway. And Reality might block you then anyway.

REALITY’S TEACHING – Part 1.

Question: You seem reluctant to recommend books or courses on mysticism.

But each personal experience is different. it is tailor made for each individual’s stage of development.

Answer: Yes. In my own experience, each human experience of anything is the only beginning of all knowledge.

Consequently, as a mystic, my reading and listening, my learning style, delivers my needs at the time, when I’m ready. My way and my time are never going to be your way or time.

No one else’s way and time are ever going to be exactly appropriate to you or other people all the time, either.

A spiritual teacher was asked why he sometimes gave different answers to different pupils.

The teacher explained what all mystics have experienced: “Each individual’s ability to fully apprehend Reality is unique, and different to different personal circumstances and attributes.”

So my ways are not your ways, and yours are not mine. Similarly, Reality’s ways are not our ways and our ways are not Reality’s …

If your calling to Reality is true you’ll always find what your real present needs are. Clue 1: they’re not worldy!. Clue 2: they don’t always give the answers you’d expect. Clue 3: they definitely change as you change. Clue 4: they’re fundamental, simple. Clue 5: they free you to be the real you, without baggage!

In my experience, if you are really called, not caught in books, courses or ideologies, you will be gifted with two more abilities to help you on your Way: the ability to listen to the exclusion of everything else, and discernment.

(Beware – Reality can also be insistent to ward you off what you don’t need! Ignore such warnings at your peril. Wanting is no part of spiritual development).

MYSTICISM LEADS TO APATHY?

QUESTION:  If, as you infer throughout your blog and book, Reality rules, do you mean to say we’re puppets without free will?

ANSWER: We only have free will within the limits of our present humaness, just as beetles, for instance, have all the freewill they can handle within their beetleness. It’s the same in all existence – in matter, spirit, nature – throughout creation. That’s my understanding. (‘A place for everything and everything in its place’?).

According to mystic experience, the above describes the human state in its evolutionary development into Ultimate Reality, whether we know it or not, like it or not. 

Q:  So you mystics, are not concerned with freewill, then; self improvement? 

A:   What could be described as Reality’s definition of ‘self improvement’ is very different to any merely human version.

As has been said, Reality’s ways are not our ways and our ways are not Reality’s.

Q:   So human effort is useless? If that’s the case why don’t we slip into apathy, leave it to Reality, not care about anything?

A:   Because Reality rules otherwise.

Q:   Oh yes?!  So what is this so called ‘otherwise’ your Reality ‘rules’?

A:  It’s the simple realisation persisting throughout mystic experience that our ultimate existence serves some unknown purpose, as illustrated by mystic realisation that we are given all we need to exist. So what else should we want? Why would we interfere and interrupt our progress in Reality?

However indiscernible to some, progress in Reality is ineradicable and in Reality’s time, not our time. Our being true to our real selves fills this purpose.

This profoundly fundamental existential lesson teaches that apathy is yet another word for a merely human experience that has no meaning in Reality. Accordingly, apathy has no relevance to mystics, who have experienced Reality.

Consequently, Mystics, Seekers, the wise and the thoughtful, find themselves recognising their full potential and destiny in living with a core of simple contentment; (as much as their efforts allow them in their times).

Mystics become uncluttered by the ultimately extinct ever-changing mentality, ideas and distractions of the short lived human condition of their times.

Q:  What do you mean, ‘short lived human condition’?

A:   If my mystical experiences of Reality are anything to go by, humans are at a very primitive, early stage of evolution.

Humans are on their way to extinction into their full meaning in Reality. According to scientists we only have a shelf life of 120 years in a cosmos billions of years old.

(Are mystics, seekers, the wise and the thoughtful, survivors of the human race’s final evolution? Burke and Sinetar suggested this in their books when they wondered if mystics, for instance, might be a different species).

Q: So mysticism leads to what psychiatry calls alienation?

A: What is psychiatry’s definition?

Q: According to Google, it is:

“… a state of depersonalization or loss of identity in which the self seems unreal, thought to be caused by difficulties in relating to society and the resulting prolonged inhibition of emotion.”

A: Absolutely right about ‘difficulties in relating to society’! Tell me about it! But the psychiatrists are wrong. It’s society that causes apathy. Apathy is a product of spiritual ignorance. Eighty percent of the population is prone to it, among other human weaknesses.

Narcissistic, hubristic human emotion such as ‘apathy’ are irrelevant in Reality where all humanity is finally extinguished in the knowing, infinite belonging and joy of Reality in which we live, breath and have our temporary human existence.

Personally, I would describe my own “difficulties in relating to society” not as apathy but as a feeling of being marooned here, as expressed in my poem, MAROONED* (below) that I posted in the blog some time ago.

I don’t know what I did to deserve my maroonment but I’m coping. Solitude helps … (Laughs loudly).

(Shakes his head). I sometimes wonder if earth is a cosmic penitentiary we inmates have to endure until we get it right … (Laughs longer).

All Is Well. Reality rules.

Here’s the poem:

*MAROONED

Divinity’s insouciant servants of the Light

Fly beneath my fears, over my plight,

Indifferent to my day as to my night.

Marooned in the humanity of my time,

Tired by glimpses of the divine,

Save me soon, make me thine.

“ALL IS WELL”? Part 2*

QUESTION: When you see the state of the world how can you say All Is Well as you do?

ANSWER: That ‘All Is Well’ message was given to me aurally in one of my mystic experiences of Reality, (MER).  It was my only aural experience in all my MERs. It was a powerful, life changing experience.

So the message, All Is Well, shares its full meaning when each of the words are taken separately into our meditation or contemplation as well as together.

When I use the phrase I am passing it on for those ready for it.

Secondly, my MERs taught me “the state of the world” is not a primary interest of Reality. We have been given all we need for Reality’s purpose. The rest is just human “mind stuff” – it’s all abandoned at death anyway. 

The state of the world is powerless against the destiny Reality has for the whole of all existence, whether far away and near, known and unknown, including the world’s present configuration and contents, even humans.

The process of Reality has been likened to a mill grinding slowly but surely to produce Itself. (Bearing in mind Reality’s time is not our time).

The metaphor of milling is a profound, seminal meditation for those ready to be drawn into it.

MER experience reveals that the milling metaphor is an existential discovery, an acceptance of ourselves in Reality, and Reality as being latently in us.  

For mystics, the metaphor of a mill is the definition of all existence, the answer to the perennial human question, ‘What’s it all about?’.

IS REALITY GOD?

QUESTION: Is Reality God?

ANSWER: A definite NO! ‘God’ is largely man made in man’s image. Reality isn’t.

But, yes, in human terms bits of Reality have been called all kinds of ‘God’ or ‘gods’, and other names and attributes by humans for billions of years in every culture. The name has been abused and used, to kill and ill-treat millions.

But those humans of all times and cultures who were given as much of the experience of Reality as they could bear at the time – the mystics – were for some reason yet unknown shown more of the nature of Reality’s existence than eighty percent of their population at the time, (assuming the Pareto* principle applies here).

Unfortunately many of those mystics translated the revelation into spiritually shallow, human terms. This lead to emotional, spirituallly empty, merely morally and ethically driven religions that have little immediately evident divine content whatsoever.

But my understanding is that despite these human distortions Reality is the same but ever changing and unchanging.

Reality remains the beginning and end of all things. The Jesus of the Christian bible seems to suggest as much when he talks of being part of the alpha and omega of ‘God’.

All that has changed in human understanding historically is the extra extent Reality has revealed Itself from time to time to individuals, (note: not to religions or ideologies!).

For instance, one of the aspects of the ‘God’ of the Christian bible is what a vicious, warlike, tribal, revenge-seeking, manipulative, political, all mighty earthly power ‘God’ is. I can testify otherwise from personal experience.

The negative qualities described above were obviously human. Like all such human straying from Reality such delusions have been falling under the weight of their own irrelevance ever since.

But I, and presumably all mystics from my reading of latest human history, know Reality is us, and we are Reality. Perhaps this is why the ancients mistakenly described what they knew of Reality as having human form.

In fact, Reality isn’t even biological, if my experiences are anything to go by. (Neither are we biological eventually).

Therefore while Reality is certainly all powerful, It is also fundamentally caring, benign, guarding, guiding, advising, rescuing, forgiving, profoundly joyful, powered by acceptance of all things everywhere at all times – what humans who have experienced Reality partially call, inadequately, love. Reality’s love is ineffable, indescribable, reducing all who experience it into Itself, in utterly humble gratitude and submission. No one who has had any experience of Reality is ever the same again.

And by some way strange to human ways, Reality is only interested in individual growth, ie: you. Reality has named you, Reality claims you as Itself … Spiritual gregariousness, (one size fits all), is an oxymoron, nothing to do with Reality, and always fails.

We know now, if the ongoing mystic experience is to be believed, that Reality’s love is acceptance, not like human love which is emotional, lustful, angry, greedy, attached to the exclusion of one thing or the other, and ego driven. None of these merely human ‘attributes’ exist in Reality.

So to answer the question, is Reality God? I’ll repeat my first answer with another definite NO! ‘God’ is largely man made in man’s image. Reality isn’t.

All Is Well.

MANIPULATIVE?

Question: Your posts seem deliberately terse, brief. Is this accidental or deliberate?

Answer: Deliberate.

Interestingly, another reader of this Blog sent me her observations on how and what I write:

“Your message is ‘authentic’ and only those who have the instinct will truly be able to follow.

“The simplicity in your messages is working.

“You are passing the questions to the seeker.”

I try to stick to the point, examine it in detail, expound it simply, avoid the temptation (not always!) of deviations, additional explanatory material or background. I use my short ‘one sentiment per sentence’ formula, with no more than three sentences per paragraph, (also not always!). No clutter.

Q: Is that to make it easy to read and digest?

A: It’s to manipulate the mind not to skip through the post – speed bumps if you like …

Q: Oh! (Laughs). A friend and I were just discussing how the posts can stick in your mind! Almost like meditations … spell-like.

A: Yes, the posts can be treated as meditations. Used as such they can take you to the depths of Reality’s intentions. Depends how deep you can go, how spiritually advanced you are.

Different aspects of the depths of these posts might be explored for life, depending on how far you mature spiritually – they’re only the surface of what you and Reality are all about.

Q: But won’t different people get different answers?

A: Variations, yes. Depends on how deep their spiritual lungs can take them through the levels of experience.

Each level of discovery is different, a bit like experience or age bringing new levels of thinking and awareness into ordinary human life.

Q: Wow, I had no idea about all this … No idea … it’s like you’re casting spells. (LOL).

A: Mystics and Seekers may pick up resonances that cause them to slip into meditation. The results could make the ‘spell’ bloom, filling them with what Sufi’s call its ‘spiritual perfume’.  

Q: Alright … so whatever post you might make of this communication could be a ‘spell’?

A: Here it is, take a deep breath, try it!

All Is Well.

KNOWING YOU’RE CALLED

Q:  How do you know you’re called?

A: I think the description of someone being ‘called’ is an inaccurate human reference to the mystical experience of Reality, (MER), that make some humans into mystics. 

Mysticism isn’t a calling as if it’s some practise/profession of human activity. Mystics aren’t called, they’re absorbed into Reality and released back into humanity.

Q:  Why?

A:  No one knows. Even serious scientists who accept the phenomenon say it’s ineffable, indescribable.

Q:  Why is that so?

A:  Because Reality is not human, it’s nothing to do with humans as humans are now. That’s my intuition. There were no humans in my MERs, even I found myself watching myself disappear eventually. There was nothing biological involved whatsoever.

Q:  The monasteries were said to examine would-be entrants for a personal ‘calling’ before they were admitted. 

A:  I don’t know the entry rules for today’s monasteries but real gurus of today do look for genuine Seekers in order to assuage what the Christian bible calls such people’s “hunger and thirst for righteousness”, (Matthew 5:6).  This passion is unique to true Seekers everywhere.

Q: Jesus said he had faithfully delivered his message to those already prepared by God. Isn’t this what mystics should be doing?

A:  No. I think it was that human desire to spread the word that inexorably made Jesus’ mission fail and finally brought the religions to their end days. Religions lack the real thing, spirituality, because MER is spiritual, and it’s caught not taught. It’s not a social ideology either.

Q: What can I do to find out if I’m really called?

A:  if you are truly called, the posts on mysticalexperiences.net may help you identify yourself as a made, genuine Seeker – separate from about 80% of the human race whether you like it or not. Each post in the blog is as genuine a representation of my MER experiences as I can make them. 

You won’t have to read the whole blog to know if you are in fact a humble, submissing Seeker or not!

JUST BEING A BETTER HUMAN A WASTE OF TIME?

Q:  You say in the introduction to your blog, “You are at the wrong site if you are just seeking to be a better human being.” You don’t mean that do you?

A:  Yes I do. The message of the Mystical Experience of Reality (MER) has been misinterpreted to mean it has to be spread to the world.

No it doesn’t. It can’t be. MER is caught, not taught. It can’t be evangelised or prosyletised. True mystics (those who experience MER) are only created by Reality, not humans. 

The mystics of history paid a terrible personal price for trying to ‘spread the word’. They failed anyway – as the state of the human race demonstrates to this day…. 

Q:  So what was the point of your MER experiences? 

A:  One of the things that was made quite clear to me was that I was to do nothing, just enjoy being human! (I’m still working on that enigma). The message was firm though:  Reality is in charge of everything everywhere, including us. 

This was further confirmed in one of my MERs when I was told, All Is Well. (It took me many years to understand this).

But I have an idea humans are in a chrysalis state of development. We don’t live long, then after death we become pure spirit. indestructible, belong to everything in ineffable joy as everything belongs to us, everything one in Reality.

Q: This is all very different to what people think … This is a new message!  What about religions for instance, are they wrong?

A:  I’m not going to prod that emotional malarkey with a stick! Let sleeping dogs lie … are you religious?

Q: I like to think of myself as spiritual rather than religious.

A: So, no, you’re not religious! So do you think religions are any of your business, then?

Q: (Stares). I guess not …

A:  Religions have no existential experience of MER so preach non MER things like morality and ethics. These are mere human  values that change from one lifetime to another. Reality is eternal.

Q. So being a better human being is irrelevant?

A:  To mystics and seekers, yes!  But being a better human becomes axiomatic, even automatic, once individuals find themselves on the spiritual path. 

We might not believe in Reality but Reality believes in us!

BREATHING MEDITATION?

From The Hindu Tradition of Breath Meditation: “The breath does not just begin or support life, the breath is the totality of life. It is life, far beyond the simple movement of the lungs in the bodies of mammals. […] Breath is the substance of which the inner and outer universe is constructed as well as the power within it which causes it to move and live…” Continue Reading


This reference was sent to mysticexperiences.net by follower Ron Krumpos, author of the book THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT IN LIFE, Interviews with leading world mystics. The ebook has been downloaded 70,000 times.

This link from Ron is a very easy, lucid entry into the subject of breath from the point of view of the Hindhu spiritual experience – very comprehensive and inclusive of other spiritual ways too. I’ve saved it as a permanent reference for further reading.

However, my first reaction was to reference my personal experiences of Reality (MER) for illumination, only to discover nothing at all about breath! I feel no twitchings of intuition on the subject whatsoever. I seem to have been taken completely out of any human reference by my MERs in general, including breathing because there was nothing human jn my MERs, nothing breathing.

Of course I have often come across references to Hindhu spiritual breath control but upon any further concentration at the time found nothing responded in me then, either.

For me therefore, breathing is simply a basic, necessary biological aspiration with no significance or use after human death.

I may be misreading the subject due to my adherence to the dawning realisation only experience of anything is valid – to the exclusion of all teachings, readings, ideologies, gossip and rumour, faith, hope or belief etc. That’s partly why I trust my MERs.

That sounds very severe, but is solid ground for me after my MERs. Personal experience is the only reality, all else is secondhand, artifice and human delusion …

I hope this is helpful. (It’s very difficult to tell if my revelations, if that is what they are, are meant to be shared, though some people tell me they are part of their personal epiphanies. That emboldens my posts somewhat …).

DEAD END SCIENCE?

So far as David Deutsche’s book The Fabric of Reality is concerned, it adds to my conviction scientists are inexplicably addicted to the spiritually irrelevant human attachment of curiosity – intellectual tourism – the human spirit rather than spirituality.

Deutsche seems to confirm this when he says right at the end of this book that all scientists are doing is looking for explanations about the world.

Are scientists blindly addicted to worldliness? If so, science is a dead end so fas as the mystic experience of Reality is concerned. Mystics don’t know the how of Reality either, but they have experienced It and do understand the evolutionary spiritual content in which this world and its humans temporarily exist.

Scientists have knowledge whereas mystics have understanding. This is another difference between the human spirit and Real spirituality – quite an abyss.

ARTIFICAL MERs v. REAL MERs!

I think the differences between the genuine mystical experience of Reality, (MER), and other induced or merely posited experiences claiming to be the real thing are twofold.

First, in my experience, you can’t induce the genuine mystical experience, (MER) by any means known to mankind. Such human experiences are the mere product of artificial interference with the brain’s real, created functions. These results are limited by the human condition to the human condition.

Secondly, genuine mystical experiences are not concerned with the human condition. For some unfathomable reason they prepare some human recipients for something else, something unknown, something ineffable and humanly indescribable, something the human brain simply isn’t ‘wired’ to know, create or communicate on it’s own.

(I’ve often speculated the brain is only spiritually engaged by MER as an inert conduit at best).

Why Renunciation is Prescribed for Seekers of Truth?

Renunciation

by Jayaram V

Summary: This essay explores the importance of being yourself and seeing things clearly as they are


Try to speak truth for a whole day and see what happens. You will be considered a troll and shut down by many from their communication channels. You will be regarded as a trouble maker, or a dangerous person. People are comfortable with their illusions. If you try to rupture them, you will invite trouble. Therefore, for most of us truth is what is socially acceptable and justifiable rather than what is true.

Being yourself is the first step to be true to yourself. It is an important step in your self-transformation and inner purity. Not many people can practice it, for the same reason as stated before. They cannot alienate people by speaking truth or being truthful. Even the most powerful…

REALITY MANIPULATIBLE?

“The subconscious mind motivates almost all actions, behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and the choices that you think you are making in your lives — it is the key to transformation.” Richard Haight, richardhaight.net

Is Richard suggesting it’s the subconscious mind that produces what I call the mystical experience of Reality (MER), that people can transform themselves into being better human beings?

The existence of an independent ‘sub conscious’ mind is an unproven human suggestion.

All we can be sure of is that the brain works on an as yet not fully understood practical complex of hydraulic, hydrodynamic, electric, synaptic and chemical levels. But little else can be assumed with any certainty. All we understand about the brain is that it services and maintains the body’s functions. So far as we know, that’s it; nothing spiritual available for human manipulation that has yet been discerned about the brain.

I certainly never got the impression I had anything I could do about my MERs. I was helpless and incredibly joyous about them; humbly so. They were completely spontanious and inexplicable. So much so I have a strong instinct the stewardship of existence has deliberately excluded any interference by our comparatively new human race. MER is caught, not taught. Reality Rules.

As my multiple experiences of MER attested, these experiences are not meant to ‘improve’ humans but to aid the process of advancing us beyond mere human existence.

WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELF A MYSTIC?

Question: You say openly you are a mystic but mystics have a reputation for being reluctant to identify themselves publicly.

Answer: Yes I do, and I have two main reasons for this.

First of all I wasn’t going to use my name when I published this blog, even when I eventually published my book. That is because I still believe the message is more important than the messenger. But I was advised my mystic experiences wouldn’t be taken seriously if I didn’t identify myself as a real person. So I gave in.

Q: How important are your mystical experiences?

A: I have no idea. For over half a century of my life, since my experiences started, the idea of promoting them never occurred to me. I also thought people would think I was mad. Even when inner promptings started to urge me to go public after all that time, I resisted. There was no way I felt I could face the public reaction or treatment historically meted out to mystics.

Q: So what changed your mind?

A: These unbidden and largely resisted inner promptings, persisted until the idea of a Blog came. After that, despite misgivings, I gave in and started the blog. Then I had promptings to publish the book. Having a background as a journalist and editor then a senior communications executive and consultant seemed to fit. The call to write a blog finally appealed to my abilities as obvious, blessed answers to the by then increasingly persistent promptings. So here we are.

Now I get specific messages giving me subjects for blog posts. I seem to react as a recording scribe.

As such I do my best to represent my experiences and their personally directed teachings, if that’s what they are. I come at them with purposeful integrity, careful effort, to achieve what purity of communication I can. It’s a profoundly spiritual exercise that was thrust on me. I find it humbling.

Q: How do the words you write arrive?

A: Ghost-like in their sudden emergence! I have very little idea what they’re going to be about. I have no idea of what I record even existing in me. The words just flow. (Despite constant editing, all the errors are mine).

Secondly, I didn’t tell anyone about my experiences or about being a mystic for over 60 years, not family, friends or colleagues, because I didn’t even know I was a mystic.

But now I do know so deliberately identify myself as such because I’m increasingly alienated from the human race as a consequence of my experiences taking me further into Reality. I therefore find most human life, human preoccupations and general states of consciousness minimal, artificial, tedious even. This helps reduce people’s expectations of me. I’m not the same as them and can’t accept the same basics of existence as they do.

People generally take themselves and human life with its myriad mythomanic attachments for granted. I can’t.

(I always thought it odd when a guru prefaced his public appearances with the plea to ask him only spiritual questions, not religious, ideological, social, or political ones. Now I understand why he said that).

Q: Is this detachment?

A: Yes.

Q: How’s that working?

A: Magnificently! Unattachment is a deeply intensive gift that enables you to know Reality. I’m much affected by the deeper revelations unattachment brings.

All Is Well.
