Unnatural living: Living that is driven by the imagined fears/desires of persons who have taken their ego-states to be their real identity; in an effort to preserve their false identities, persons behave in self-destructive and destructive fashions in the relative existence; while That Which One Truly Is was never created and cannot be destroyed, persons are driven (though usually unconsciously) to destroy their false selves, those mental ego-states they take as their phony identities, and thus behave in a way that is contrary to the natural instinct to survive; among persons, the drive is for the false self to survive until the phony role playing results in so much misery that persons become driven to try to destroy the self (which can happen via Realization but more often happens through attack upon the body-mind that is playing the roles).
Self-destructive behaviors: Since persons take their bodies to be at the core of "who they are," and since they use their bodies to play out the false roles they accept as self-identification, it is the body that is usually attacked when persons become sick and tired of the phony roles and all the misery they generate; on occasion, the attack against the body is conscious and violent (as with suicides) but typically the attack is more subtle as persons try to destroy the body slowly with harmful habits, harmful foods, drinks, drugs, eating disorders, impulsive actions and risky behavior; self-destructive behaviors are also those behaviors that are typical of persons who are absorbed in false roles, who foster false images, and who sometimes know on some level that it is their assumption of their false identity and phony roles that is the major contributor to their misery. In truth, the false self can be abandoned (via the Advaita "path" to Realization) if one sees clearly it is false and then uncovers the Real, but most do not and thus try to destroy the body-mind that "houses" the false self; the desire to escape the false roles and all the chaos that they generate makes ego-states/ego a key source of addictive behavior that has at its core the desire to elude or shake off the misery of living the lies that all ego-states are and that all ego inspires.
Body-mind-personality triad: A triad is anything with three parts. Among persons, the three parts that they are conscious of (using their impure consciousness) are the physical body, the mind, and the personality (or personalities…the personas or roles that they are playing and take to be their true identity); believing in their "three-ness," they fail to know the unicity (that is, their Oneness with All); fixed in the delusion of a three-fold triad and not knowing the Oneness, persons believe in the multiplicity.
Multiplicity: The perception among persons that the world and the universe are made of multiple components rather than the one true THAT; the belief in the concepts of separate and different which, in turn, inspire judgment and separation, ego, superiority and inferiority, good and bad, right and wrong, better/best, and all dualistic thinking and wrong perceiving that prevents persons from knowing the unicity and being aware of the at-one-ment of all.
Unicity: The opposite of multiplicity; persons mistakenly perceive a multiplicity of things that supposedly make up “this world”; in fact, all in this world is imagined, wrongly perceived. To understand unicity, understand the prefix “uni” ("one”). The universe is but One. All that exists is the one, single THAT; all does not have THAT in common but, instead, is in common.
Meditation (or contemplation): Originally, not the act of seeking the no-mind state but of seeking a quiet place and time to consider thoroughly any and all pointers offered by a teacher; it is during that act that all the false can be seen, all the truth can be known, the lie of duality can be seen, and truth of the unicity can come to light.
Duality: The great lie, the belief in separation (a belief that is rooted in false identity and the ego that always accompanies the assumption of ego-states as identities); the arbitrary and imagined division of all (which is actually One) into fictitious groups. For example, duality—taken only by persons to be real—results in a perception of separation based in superficial judgment followed by the cataloguing of all people and behaviors and things and events and places as either “good or bad,” "right or wrong," "OK or not OK," "enough or not enough." Please enter into the silence of contemplation. [To be continued]

Non-Duality Paperback Books on

Five Free eBooks

Compliments of Andy Gugar, Jr.,
the following eBooks are available without charge for you or for friends:


The content of this eBook deals with one of the most common but erroneous beliefs that the non-Realized masses cling to and which they will fight about (and even kill over), namely, that there is a planet-wide duel going on between “the forces of good and evil” in the universe.

Either (1) the ancient view is spot on: that the "ills of the planet" are rooted in evil people, in people not being religious enough or spiritual enough, and are caused solely by bad morality; or, (2) the "ills of the planet" are rooted in ignorance, stupidity and insanity and "being good" or "being moral" does not put an end to ignorance, does not eliminate stupidity, and does not treat insanity in any way.


Comments regarding the free eBook entitled “THE VISION”:

“My thanks to you and Andy.” – Andrew “Mac” McMaster

“Thanks so much for the book! And, by the way, it is brilliant and the most effective pointing that you have done. It has served to help clear the remaining blockages.” – Stan Cross

“Greatly appreciate having “THE VISION” added to my Henderson resource library that is situated on the right side of my bed for easy access! Eternally grateful for what was received and what was given.” – Robert Rigby

“‘THE VISION’ is such a well-written, condensed version of the Nisarga Yoga approach to understanding and enjoying Reality that I feel it can serve as a must-read ‘meditation guide’ for all earnest seekers.” – Andy Gugar, Jr.

"Sapolsky, Maharaj, and the Non-Dual Teachings"

Dr. Robert Maurice Sapolsky is an American neuroendocrinologist; a professor of biology, neuroscience, and neurosurgery at Stanford University; a researcher; an author; and a Research Associate at the National Museums of Kenya.

There is much that a non-dualist or Advaitin or Nisargan can relate to by comparing and contrasting what Sapolsky reveals about the way certain troops of baboons live in Africa with the way that humans abide all around the globe.

This 152-page eBook catalogues the common, non-dual message shared by Sapolsky and Maharaj and reveals the ways that Sapolsky’s scientific research supports the non-dual pointers offered by Maharaj.


In “PART ONE” it will be seen that most persons on the planet are not seeking, and most will never seek, but for those who are seeking, most will face several obstacles:

In “PART TWO” of this book, it will be seen why many criticized Maharaj for “changing his message in his later talks.” It will be seen that the changes were not about changing the message per se as much as about changing his methodology as he experimented with one version of the Ultimate Medicine after another in order to try to find an effective means for addressing the Ultimate Sickness.

He tried a religious version of the Medicine, a Spiritual version of the Medicine, and finally settled on a version which addressed to Sickness at its core . . . at the mental and emotional level.


“Dangerous” is a term that can only apply during the relative existence, but of those who do commit suicide, for example, how many shoot themselves in the foot over and over until they “bleed out”? None. They shoot themselves in the head. Why? In order to try to stop the noise - to try to stop the chatter of a thousand monkeys – to stop the noisy mind which is the area that stores the ideas, notions, concepts, mind-stuff, etc. which drives them into the depths of insanity.

And what are those ideas, notions, concepts, etc. called, collectively? "Their beliefs." The irony? They are not their beliefs at all. They are the beliefs of “others” that were set in place via programming, conditioning, etc. and which persons then think are their own.

And what are those beliefs rooted in, and what reinforces those beliefs and convinces persons that they are sacred and worth fighting over and even sometimes worth dying for? Blind faith.

This 337-page eBook discusses those issues in detail.
