God As Counter-Force

Authentic spirituality in Kali Yuga is always and inherently revolutionary. The founders and sustainers of great and lasting spiritual movements have all been true revolutionary heroes—the prime examples being such figures as Rav Yeshua; his apostle Paul; the Buddha; the Jain sage Mahavira; the poet-sages of the Dao, namely Laozi and Zhuangzi; the Tantric mahasiddhas such as Garab Dorje, Utpaladeva, Abhinavagupta, and Padmasambhava; the Sufi masters such as ibn Arabi, ibn Sab’in, and Rumi; and the great Chan and Zen masters from Bodhidharma to Dogen.

Since all centers of political and social power have, in these latter days of the time cycle, become infiltrated and then dominated by demonic forces, leading to ever more severe and illegitimate crackdowns on personal freedom, and in the final period, to a general attack on life itself, the attainment of Liberation in the true spiritual sense of that word, must encompass and pervade all the aspects, levels, and activities of the entities and agencies of consciousness within the holographic simulation at large in the total field of unfolding space and time, whether subjective or objective.

Because the internal oppressive force that functions as the proximate cause of the ignorance, suffering, anger, and weakness of all individuals today is the ego complex—and especially in the ego’s fearful, envious, and furious inner child self-image, and even more importantly, in the ego’s deep core, ruled by a ruthless internal censor, dedicated to the persistence of the tendencies that make up the egoic identity—the arising of spiritual determination to break free from the grip of the ego requires the direct intervention of God as the only power that can provide a superior counter-force.

Since most ego minds have been indoctrinated with models of reality that assume atheist, materialist, and nihilist belief systems, the reality of God is not taken seriously, and so, access to that supreme power is not available. Moreover, even those who nominally believe in God usually superimpose erroneous dualist definitions of God as Wholly Other who is located somewhere in the unattainable Beyond, and thus keep at a distance the immediate reality of the Self. These egos do not have faith that God-consciousness is reachable, let alone that God is their real Self. And even those who accept nonduality rarely have the perseverance necessary to silence their surface mental activity to create space for the divine Presence to emerge into stable, fully empowered awareness, loaded with creative intelligence, will power, serenity, and boundless joy.

The mistaken identification with the I-thought and its narratives keeps the awareness unaware of its true nature, and unable to return to its Source in the Absolute Presence. The relentless mental and emotional agitation of the ego/superego conflict and the ego’s bestial drives imprison the consciousness in fantasies of desire, hatred, self-righteous mutiny against the demands of true spiritual authority and against their own psychospiritual growth and higher development.

There are two main strategies to overcome this Self-defeating pessimism. The first is the gyana approach, which augments the refinement of discernment by the intellect (the buddhi) in order to be able to observe the automaticity and alien nature of one’s mental chatter, and to build a platform from which to critique and oppose the drives that strive to act out their projective delusions.

The second strategy, that of bhakti, which builds on the first, activates the heart’s capacity for love of Truth and Beauty, and combines with the growing wisdom of the buddhi to turn away from the ego’s motivations and the superego’s attacks, and mobilizes the upper death drive in the form of contemplative prayer, genuine devotion, and sublime adoration of God, culminating in loving surrender of the mind and heart to the Source of our Being.

This surrender must not be simply notional and occasional, but actualized through a constant and rigorous practice of Self-enquiry and inner silence. The taking of vows can also aid in sustaining one’s determination to liberate Presence from dispersal into mental and physical activity that constitutes an act of running away from the stillness of the Self.

By establishing a center of empty space, unaffected by whatever events occur in either the objective or subjective sphere, a nirvanic asylum is created, into which the attention can then take refuge and make into its permanent abode. The emptiness is saturated with the all-pervading energies of the infinite field of consciousness, revealing its true nature as the Absolute Real. The illusory sense of existence as an individual personal consciousness is finally absorbed into the Real, and the illusions of time, space, world, and karma disappear as well.

God-realization thus ends the reign of evil and creates the conditions for a new world to emerge. Even if only one individual node of consciousness enters the ultimate level of the Real, the effect on the entire morphogenic field is enormous. And when a number of beings attain the Absolute simultaneously, the minds of all beings in the noetic field are lit up with divine luminosity and the holographic simulation is washed out by the supreme power of the Light of the Absolute Self.

Because it is the Will of the merciful Absolute that this world of suffering should end soon, the gift of grace is being offered to all who sincerely seek Liberation. God is now acting as the Supreme Counter-Force to destroy this unreal, demon-infested realm and will then re-create the world as a kingdom of heaven. Those who wish to be anointed with the holy essential oil of eternal Presence need only offer their lives to the service of God through divinization of their icons in the matrix.

May the Counter-Force be with you!

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.


Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.


Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
