In the Moment
(Sailing down a Highway
at 70 M.P.H.
on the Body's Back)
From Sveinn in Iceland (and others) : Why have you not been posting?
F.: Hello to Sveinn and others. My apologies to you and to all who have reported that the daily postings are a part of your routine that has been interrupted. Regular postings should continue sometime next week.
On the 31st of last month while returning to Texas from Louisiana, a deer ran into the path of my motorcycle. A swerve to the left sent me off a plateau in the road, down a steep hill, and into the path of an 18-wheeler. Another swerve back to the right to miss the truck put the bike back on a path toward the deer. The third swerve caused a loss of control of the bike. I slid 450 feet downhill, the bike traveled 900 feet. The doctors claim I am alive because I went with the flow--traveling head first down the road--rather than trying to turn my body and action that would have begun a tumbling effect of the type that shatters all bones in the body. Not only was consciousness not lost... it reached a super state. During the skid, I looked left and saw a forest racing by and looked to the right to see the road doing the same. I watched the road peel away my gloves when I placed my hands down to try to slow the body's speed. At that moment, I determined to just ride things out until friction did its thing. Bones were broken in the right leg and foot and in the left hand, and several joints are out of place but those will be corrected next week. Following two surgeries, I am now recuperating in a rehab hospital and doing the work required to be discharged next week. The original four-week prediction for my stay there has been reduced to two weeks. I'll be staying with Marie for a month or two after that. Thanks to her and to my daughter Ashley who drove in to serve as an advocate, I finally received the indicated treatment.
The body is recuperating more from the trauma suffered in the hospital than in the accident, but so it is. The pain meds were refused early on, not to play some macho role but to reject all that would remove the full awareness of the presence of that consciousness which I Am. The pain-body is being witnessed objectively, and in that process little pain is even registering.
More to the point of this site, the willingness to surrender the body to the process and to go with the flow sustained the body's presence for an additional period. Is there any relevance to what you might be experiencing in this relative existence? Do you sometimes feel as if you are skidding through life, out of control? Might that be relinquish all efforts to control? Are you going with the flow? Might that be preferred, as far as the relative existence is concerned? Might you benefit, relatively-speaking, by witnessing the pain-body (or the pain-"mind") and detaching from both? Please enter the silence of contemplation.

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.
