F.: Continuing with the vacuum cleaner analogy from yesterday’s post might help some persons understand the nature of the Absolute and the cyclings and thereby free them from anxiety and frustration and rigidity and fear and false hopes. (By the way, all non-Realized persons are dissociated, so they will claim that they have no anxiety and frustration and rigidity and fear and false hopes.) Just as with humans, once energy is manifested in a vacuum cleaner, the vacuum seems to be “doing” something, but in fact the vacuum has no choice and is merely being moved along by other forces or influences. Some vacuums can even be programmed to move about a room all alone. It would appear that a pre-programmed vacuum is making decisions and choices, but it is not. It is programmed, and as long as the energy is manifested in it, it will move about and do what it is programmed to do. So it is with persons. Again, there is only an appearance that vacuums or persons are doing something on their own when in truth they are being moved about [a] as a result of energy being manifested in a space and [b] as a result of having been programmed.

Whatever happens with a programmed vacuum is beyond its control, and whatever happens with a programmed person is exactly the same (all “good intentions” and all appearances aside). Eventually, the internal workings of the vacuum will wear out and the energy that was manifested in the space will no longer be manifested there, the same as with persons. Then, the elements that had combined to “make” the vacuum will deteriorate and return to dust, the same as with persons. For the informed who understand molecular structure, it is realized that a vacuum clearner is not at all what it appears to be, the same as with humans and with their personas. The vacuum was merely a conglomeration of elements that happened to take a temporary “shape” or form or space, just as with persons. The same elements could have as easily taken the form of a blender, an air conditioner, or the computer on which these words are being typed. The same elements could have as easily taken the form of a dog, a frog, or a heron. The “existence” of that vacuum is the same type “existence” of all persons, and the “fate” of that vacuum is the same “fate” of all persons.

Now certain persons have asked such questions as, “Surely you are not suggesting that vaccum cleaners or blenders, or frogs or herons, can be compared to humans which have the ability to love and to help others and to perform acts of kindness and to elevate themselves to noble status?” To those, the response is, “That question reveals that you are no nearer to understanding non-duality than you were on the day you first accepted a persona as a real identity.” 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.
