Excerpts from RICH in Kalamazoo, MI, USA: "Something [unpleasant] happened a few weeks back and although physically in the midst of it, it didn't involve 'rich.' As it was occurring, I sat in the very midst of it, totally at peace. At first, it was so 'un-belief-able' that I looked deeper to find evidence of some emotion. There was nothing. The event culminated with an entire subculture split apart in the mental jail of good vs. bad, right vs. wrong. It is clear, given the circumstances, everyone did what they had to do; they had no choice. They still do what they have to do, believing they are 'choosing' what they do. This is so new, different. I don’t have to leave-to get away from all this chaos…nor do I have to be involved (ensnared, entangled) in it. It’s like a magnet has been removed. There is no polarity of attraction, no polarity of repulsion. I see that 'rich' had gone through this thing we call life, thinking he was making choices. Now, looking back, I cannot find where 'rich' did anything from 'choice.' Not once. Where would I be right now if not for this awareness? Lost in the beliefs…thinking I was someone. Thinking I had decisions to make, carefully weighing the options, and having conversations in the mind with an imaginary deity, to be sure to do the 'next right thing.' And so on. 'rich' does what 'rich' does. With no judgment of 'others,' there is no need to forgive. With no judgment of self, shame dissolves. i remember being afraid that if all the stage characters were removed there would be no one left. That which i feared has come upon me. No one is left. The thing about Advaita: IT MAKES SENSE. It's really not that complicated: just let go of non-sense. However, though the understanding is there (that this is illusion) it hasn't been [totally dismissed], so occasionally, there is an 'i' experiencing something. It isn't the real so it fades away. What's up? Residual ego?"
1. What is happening? The shift to simplification and away from complication is continuing. For some it's a process; for some it's instantaneous. Whichever is irrelevant. The basic understanding has been received. Less and less, emotions by ego-states that trigger reactions and attachment will happen. Feelings will happen, but they will rise and fall as no reactions are triggered and they are merely witnessed. Less and less, an "actor" or "action-taker" or “do-er” will appear, and more and more often the mere witnessing will happen. Thus, what you just described. But understand that even those spaces called jnanis that were Fully Realized admitted that on occasion, as free of concepts and as free of qualities as they were, occasionally some evidence surfaced of some dregs or particles of those former illusions, particles that are stored at some cellular level or that are remnants of attributes that were rooted in the gunas... those tendencies acquired genetically and chemically at birth. Yet what is your more typical state? It seems to be a state in which the customary position is one of being rather than one of being this or being that. It seems to be one that more often is happening without any interference from illusory concepts. It seems to be one in which the prevailing state is one that is without attributes.
Avoid dissecting a dreg or particle of impure consciousness (which was corrupted as a result of programming or conditioning) if it appears momentarily. The purified consciousness is of such mass that some brief surfacing of a dreg of impure consciousness is like a speck of dirt flicked from a finger into the ocean. (Remember, too, that everyone who has ever been called a “sage” or “jnani” went through the process early on whereby the consciousness was bastardized. They, too, had to complete all seven steps of the “journey” in order to release the learned ignorance they were taught and to grasp what they had always known intuitively, internally, but had forgotten because of the corrupting effects that enculturation has on the manifested consciousness. To read the transcripts collected in the book I Am That reveals so much less than reading the last talks of Maharaj. Realization came instantly, but one who reads all of his words can see that a shift happened over a period of time as the consciousness became more and more pure and as the firm fixation into the Absolute happened in stages.) For now, focus on this: is it a fact that You Are THAT Which Is infinite? If so, is it obvious that the more aware You become of THAT, the less effect the finite will have on any AS IF existence that is happening spontaneously with the space in which You the Consciousness are manifest? Continue to focus on the I AM and discard any remaining lies that involve I am this or I am that. As the WHO's (those "residuals" of former ego-states) disappear, the view of THAT becomes clearer and clearer. Please enter 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.
