When the mind is silently and automatically walking without thoughts into the on-coming future, then one is the Self as one's true nature. Everything else that human beings do are the result of brain-conditioned reflexes. The Self is where stillness lies. It is the supreme treasure attaied through truth, the path of satya-advaita yoga. There is no sense of joy as ananda for ananda means attachment to conscious actions and considerations, and so belongs to the ego of the body-brain-mind complex.The mind has to be separated from it to find the Self. Thus whilst God is a real entity it is not the destination. Realising one's true nature, the Self, is the destination. This goes beyond Smadhi with its paramarthika dharma. as it is full liberation, or moksha. Existence is most fruitful if one discovers one's true nature and then being that Self: that is liberation (moksha). And that true nature is universal, the same for everyone as the one and only Self: Hindus know it as Brahman. That is why it is said thet 'tat tvam asi", or Thou art That. and Brahmavid Brahmaiva Bhavati meaning He who knows Brahma verily becomes Brahma. Advaita in its various conceptions cannot be separated from dharma, which is counterproductive to Self-realisation, the ultimate goal. Once one is Self-realised there are no truths left to discover so satya-advaita yoga has reached its climactic end.

A Vishista-advaitist has to employ satya-advaita yoga continuously to attain the powers of truth that makes him invincible.

Sri Krishna created vyvaharika (the visible and experienced reality) from His 'maya' (majic) for us humans to live to the ideal perfection of advaita (non-duality), That in one sentence is Vishista-advaita Vedanta.

Attachment to anything derives from a delusional understanding of Reality. When one describes himself as in Samadhi, he has lost all attachments to components and concepts in vyvaharika and exists in paramarthika the absolute reality. There is no such thing as time, time is a man-imagined creation to put to words the ageing process in the perceived reality which is an illusion. Everything is nothing; God is everything, So God is nothing.

In liberal western countries freedom of expression is guaranteed and subject only to intrusions of privacy if that in the final analysis. The only thing one must be careful about is libel for that amounts to Defamation of character. In the United Kingdom one can publish anything about anyone so long as what is written is factual truth. One can call a spade a spade in the public interest, even against the Monarch if he or she does not deserve respect.

Truth seeking throug truth-accommodation (satya-advaita yoga) is a thing of the past for me. In its final stages it took on the framework of being spontaneous, nonchalant and unpremeditated in all my actions and reaction. Now it is truth-living which is acting in instant awareness and instant understanding to take spot-on and decisions instantly to such a perfection of truth that it takes full account of the status quo reality of the moment for my survival in security and liberty. This is a need of the human and animal biology. To attain this state of mentality do not have any plans, nor aims, desires and objectives other than wanting to be free of all that. That is how the best decisions are made instantly. To be free to truth-seek as well as truth-live have no attachments. The difference between the two is that whereas the body was not impottant during truth seeking as required by the rules of satya-advaita yoga, in truth living the body and mind are inseparable.

I was asked whether I believed in profits. My reply wss any action one takes generates a profit or a loss. A winner makes profit and a loser maes a loss. I put up my websites and published my books to see if I could make abprofit out of those actions. Of course profits and losses from ones actions can be just material just spiritual or both material and spiritual. Investments in time money and lsbour can generate indtsnt profits or losses or delayed ones. So long as one has not put all ones eggs in the same basket one can risk investments and shift them about depending on which way the winds of in Brahma-Nature are blowing. So inestments do not always yield profits. Things are uncertain always. One needs to decide when to investband how to invest timed to perfection so as not to jump from the ftying pan into the fire. Spiritual profits and losses relate to happiness and stres emotions of ones actions interms of instant satisfaction derived or mental turmoil.

Truth is the means to knowledge. But it stops being the psth to knowledge if onr is attached to knowledge. The path then becomes haphazard. Every bit of knowledge that is exposed has a limited time span because they are not durable. Time moves on. One needs to move with the times and create imrproved knoeledge throgh truth alone. Truth is the mrthod of enquiry. It is a way of life. If one has not attained justice, one has not developed the perfect knowledge. Perfect knowledge is that which is recognised and appreciated by humanity at large. To test how one is shaping up to that goal one must publish ones knowledge and see the response. If what you publish makes common sense you will acquire followers. You will become a guru. People will come to you for advice. Otherwise you will not have reached any where. You will be treated as a lunatic.

Through satya-advaita yoga, that is the yoga of truth-accommodation, it is possible for an animalistic human being (for which I coined the word humanimal) to become God in the limited sense of living ones like as an avatar. The question arises as to why one would wish to do that. The answer: to be faultless as a human being in ones thoughts and actions that brings with it joy as 'ananda'.

The Upanishad says 'Brahmavid Brahmaiva Bhavati' that is to say that He who knows Brahma verily becomes Brahma. This scripture is the essence of Vedanta in Advaita Vedanta. I am a Vishista-advaitist who has gone beyond Brahma that I define as Brahma-Nature universe (Brahman) with its guna consciousness atttibutes. The Entity beynd Brahma is the Creator Sri Krishna with whom I am in total union with. So I am an avatar.

You cannot be free if you think: freedom is detaching oneself from ones intellect. The mind is then at peace with itself: this is total union with God. The God who taught me the life-lessons to get here is the one and only Supreme Being Sri Krishna. I am now in heavenly peace; Shantananda. Om Shanti, 0m Shanti, Om Shanti. But what precisely is bring free? JIddu Krishnamurti gave an excellent talk about this. He called it 'instant insight" when one hss such perfect understanding that one takes immediate actions regardless of time and without considerations.

The Bhagavad Gita states our Lord Sri Krishna's advice that one should act but never look forward to the fruits of ones actions. Do not anticipate let alone expect the outcome of karma. Focus you mind on Sri Krishna and leave the rest to Providence to reveal the next moment's status quo. I have learnt this personally throgh satya-advaita yoga. It is karma in sanatan dharma.

The principle of Security in Liberty and Liberty in Security has worked well for me since I founded the Conservative Libertarian Society as a Global Movement. Liberty gives the latitude to acquire goals in material and spiritual terms while Security in material and spiritual terms provide the latitude to work towards liberty. The liberty is necessary to expand ones horizons and seek opportunities to better oneself in material terms as well as spiritual terms from the isolation from society generally which loses one time and resources in pointless socialising. The freedom that this entails leads to a free mind without attachments to anything physical in terms of concepts or possessions as well as to be free of God who one realises exists through ones yogic studies. This is the central principle on which great things are possible in creativity and for leading a constructive life.

The word Paramarthika taken by the author from Hinduism means the ultimate meaning, as in the sense of the eternal prescription. In joining it with dharma, that is actions and ways of living, we come to the concept of Paramarthika Dharma. A person who is not guided by Dharma has a meaningless existence. The foundation of Paramarthika Dharma is total non-violence, otherwise known to Hindus as ahimsa. Why should this be the case? The answer is that it is serving the universe and not destroying it. In Vishista-advaita this is the union of a person with God Sri Krishna, the source of all enlightened inspirations and revelations.

Life is about survival. In the animal world, which includes the world of humanimals, might is right. In the civilised world right is might. When the status quo is shaken by an aggressor out of envy for someone or some nation, it sets in motion a war which only gets resolved when what is right succeeds in the ensuing conflict. In this regard, the humanimal is Goliath while the civilised is David. Will David triumph over the Goliath? As two months of war in Ukraine and its backers in western countries against Russia has gone are they not both different types of humanimal Goliaths, so that the analogy is not applicable? Let us take a real David versus Goliath situation to consider the issue of the survival of the fittest: my personal 24 year old battle to protect myself and my reputation. These are now all documented for impartial observers and analysts. I know that I lost my cherished scientific career at the Universty of Greenwich in 1998 on a charge of being blameworthy of gross misconduct in the work place was the right justice only because over the 24 years of legal proceedings I did not get my employment restored or got paid my severance payment. The coflict went to the United Nations which refused to consider its jurisdiction to hear the Case. So I did not abide by the rules and regulations of the State of the United Kindom and there was no one in humanity as an institution that I could turn to. However, [ found the meaning of life through experiencing God and learnt that dharmayudha is crucial in the struggle for survival against a dictatorial and tyrannical Monsrch in the United Kingdom who tried to have me permanently incarcerated in a mental hospital after two short spells of such a stay enforced on me in 2004 and 2008; and when she failed she organised my arrest on framed allegation of offencezs commited by me to try and gst me sent to jail; and before tbat she tried to havs me booted out of the country and tried to make me stateless. My spirituality was non-violent truth-accommodation no matter the severity of provocation, bullying, intimidation, deprivation of employment and justice through the due legal channels. I accepted my fate. I survived in the dignity of liberty still living with my family in comfort and security within the United Kingdom itself and a British passport still. I have written 50 Sections of my autobiography entitled 'the allurement of reality' and maintain several websites as my platform to communicate my freethoughts and experiences for transparency as I believe it is in the interests of humanity that it is known and to make it clear that I have no regrets over what I have done and not ashamed for anything that I have written. I have not been a humanimal ever since I had my awakening of a Higher Power within from my visions, utterances and prophetic statements so became civilised through spirituality. My dharmayudha was geared to seeking the truth. I eventually had no aims not even to engage in dharmayudha. My attitude now is let barking dogs lie. They will get their comeuppance. Leave it for posterity to unfold. That is how I now go on in time. Financial justice is the last thing I seek, for it destroys one's reputation. I would rather try and secure a menial job and earn my bread. The tried to defame me and shake me off my faith. It failed. So David has triumphed over Goliath.

If you think consciously, then you are attached to whatever you are thinking, limited thereby and not free mentally. So, you cannot know the truth and act correctly. Being aware is a conscious state of mind so can lead to delusional thoughts; only a liberated mind knows the certain truth for its expressions in words and deeds. So, what is correct action? Answer: that which liberates the mind. Only truth liberates the mind. It works both ways: correct actions based on truth liberates the mind and the liberated mind expresses itself in truth. So truth is godly and godliness is truth. When the mind is completely free, the state is total liberation or Moksha. Ones actions are consistent and determines the truth. They say that cleanliness in next to godliness but truth is in fact godly. I believe in truth for truth is cure-all.

The greatest objective in life is to acquire knowledge and the pathe of truth is the means to doing so. I have an insatiable apetite for knowledge. But it requires time, fearlessness, patience and a cool head. That is what I have learnt. One needs to survive in as much liberty as possible. The mind is moulded into Supermind and it is this state that needs to be attained. For when perfected it detects the suprental descent of our Eternal Being that is the source of pristine truth. Then one is in full awareness and knowledge comes easily, automatically and in complete self preservationn to live anther day in freedom of thoght and liberty in the material world. Once one has arrived at this state of being there is no need for turning back. The theory has been proven from personal experimental yoga techniques. One has survived all the obstacles in the guna consciousness of Brahma-Nature with ones head held high and with the reputation of being truthful honest, peaceful and harmonious. One has silenced all opposition. I used to think that I was a one-off avatar of our Creator Supreme God Sri Krishna but if this methodology worked for me it can work for anybody. So my advice is do not lose yor cool and be patient. The all knowledge will come to you i

When seeking justice one can only go so far and no further. For every nation of necessity must have a commander-in-chief who has the last word on any dispute. Or their is war internally within the State. In a democracy that has a writtenlConstitution the supreme authority is a book that sets out contents that establishe the structure and functioning of the State. If the expected norms of conduct by cit8zens and institutions in terms of law and order are not adhered to as set out in the book the enforcement authorities can take action to have the perpetrator brought to justice. The digressions would be seen as crimes that destabilise the State. Islamic States abide by their holy book of the Koran. In unwritten Constitutions there are Acts of Parliament where law makers enact what are crimes and the Police interpret these during their work for the State. There are all kinds of democracies depending on the cultures and traditions of different States. Normally if the procedures of institutions are found to be questionable in that they are unconstitutional in terms of the written or unwritten expectations the Supreme Corurt of Justice can make a ruling and thereby direct the affairs of the State. When thr Courts when approached by a private citizen taking out civil litigations and criminal private prosecutions in an unwritten Constitution does not respond with a Judgement particularly against the Police and the Prime Minister in Parliament for derogation of statutory duties it can be deduced that the supreme leader is the Monarch in a Monarchial Dictatorship in which the only arbiter of what constitutes a crime is the Police under the directions of the Royal Constabulary. Thst is where the quest for justice ends. In the United Kingdom this is the case from my examination of the unwritten Constitution. The Police in the United Kingdom is the law in terms of being the prosecutor, the jury and the judge. The Courts both civil and criminal serve the Royal Costabulary. One cannot insist on a trial by a jury of commoners in Magistrates Court as a right when the defendant is the Police or the Prime Minister. Everything is done in secrecy by the Monarch and his or her entourage to dispose of Claims agaist these institutions. All because there is no written Constitution. I petitioned Her Majesty the Queen in 2002 after being defamed and found to have abused the process of cout and reminded her of an updated petition two years ago but am still waiting to receive my £55000 redundancy/severance payment from the University of Greenwich after 24 years of judicial proceedings. Going on complaing any more would be treason by contempt for Her Majesty the Queen is the supreme commander-,in-chief of the United Kingdom who organised my interrogation and arrest on 15 September 2021/24 Nonember 2021 by Kent Police for protesting against injusties perpetrated on me by apparently the rest of the State and international allies of the State through my emails, websites and books. The Royal Constabulary of the United Kingdom is to Her Majesty the Queen what the Kremlin is to President Vladsmir Putin. So be it.

Plans mean objectives, objectives mean attachments, attachments mean loss of stillness of mind, loss of stillness of mind means loss of awareness, loss of awareness means vulnerability to crooks and parasites. That is then loss of peace of mind. So have no plans, aims missions hopes, expectations anticipations desires and no ego to do things. It is as natural way to live as possible. You survive because you have full awareness. The mind is completely free to judge opportunities and spot dangers to your survival in liberty instantly. And your reactions to external stimulus is spot on.

Do not plan, planning is terribly materialistic. Be free and live spiritually. Then good things come to you. The mind should not be cluttered with objectives, aims, mission, anticipations and expectations other than to attain peace, for peace for the individual brings ananda which is a spiritual treasure. If you entertain actions designed to hurt someone your own mind also in turmoil so there is loss of peace for onself and you become necessarily alert to the possible repercussions of your actions. Such a state of alertness and readiness to effectively attack someone or pursue an objective such as fighting off attacks or resisting intrusions lead to suffering and loss of peace of mind. Stay still if all avenues for material welfare are closed consequently. Otherwise, you further waste time and money so drift into poverty. Be satisfied and content with what little you have after doing everything spontaneously nonchalantly and unpremetoditatedly for your actions. That is freedom and liberty. Planning gets the mind stuck to aims and generates fear of the unknown in a totally uncertain future so that when you do face an action whether positive to you or negative you cannot react instantaneously to take advantage of the positive opportunity that comes nor react with survival instinct to the negative and intrusive dangers that confront you. Stillness of the mind is peace that makes one live in automatic awareness of any given situation for ones correct reactions towards material and spiritual welfare. So wait for the doors to open. Then walk in positively and constructively to see and explore new horizons and destinations in life. That is the freedom to live to the purpose of living. In short, do not dwell in the past. The knowledge from ones experiences is there in the memory should the next moment's circumstances need it for positivity of mind.
