F.: The follow-up questions being extensive, only the pointers that address them will be offered in order to make the posting relevant for all visitors to the site:

1. Such requests as “Where can I find more in writing on that” are never answered. It is only personas who want more and want to know more about what "others" said. You'll need to do your own research if that is what you want. This site is about wanting less (until finally nothing is desired) and about finding what You know (as opposed to what “others” know). Satsanga and reading are only recommended if one is on a seven-step “path” but does not where on the “path” he is, does not know that there is more of the “path” that remains to be traveled, or does not know the exact order in which the steps on the “path” must be taken. As for the Fully Realized, they do not need satsanga, readings, their "enlightenment" or anything else. Once my colon cancer was eliminated, no more time was spent hanging around cancer treatment centers. After that, AS IF living just happened. Post-Realization, there are no needs since there are no "need-ers."

2. There was and is no “divine nature” to Christ or to any person or anything. “Divine” vs. “not divine” is a duality. All dualities are lies.

3. Regarding your “surprising emotional reactions,” all reactions are generated by egotism and ego-states. Feelings can be felt by the Realized, but they do not result in a chain reaction of emotional intoxication. You can search the site at the top of this page for the difference in “emotions” and “feelings,” if you wish.

4. The only purpose for addressing the “choice vs. no choice” issue you raised is because that discussion can provide a vehicle for understanding the “not two.” That is, it can help clarify how the re-purified consciousness can abide as the I AM (and live out the relative existence in an AS IF fashion) even as the conscious-energy abides as the Absolute for the remainder of the manifestation. Because protégés are encouraged to question it all, the first question that most have raised about the issue of choice is, “How can there be choice is there is no one to make choices?” Excellent question, but they may as well also ask, “How can there be any I-Amness if I AM THAT?” or “How can eating happen if there is no eater?” Some ask, “But is it not a part of the understanding that conscious-energy has no personal identity, including 'chooser' or 'do-er'?” At that point, it must be understand that “choice” by definition means “alternative.” If that is understood, then it becomes clear that “alternatives” can happen during the relative existence Is-ness even as there are no “choosers,” Absolutely.

Take choice to point to the presence of alternatives as opposed to the no-choice of persons who have been programmed and conditioned and have no alternative but to think and behave in the way that their programming and conditioning dictate. No choice happens when personas are assumed as identities and as imaginary ego-states blindly determine what persons do (even as they believe that they are the authors of their existence and even as they believe they are do-ers). To the contrary, the understanding is this: post-realization, bidis were sold by “maharaj,” but there was no bidi-seller; with “floyd,” teaching happened but there was no teacher; eating happens even though there are no eaters.

Realization results in the understanding that there is no “chooser” even though relative existence alternatives do happen post-Realization. Those alternatives include an alternative to being driven, unconsciously, as a result of programming and conditioning and enculturation in all the ways that personas are driven. The teachings present an alternative during the relative existence to believing that the body-mind-personality is real, but there is no “one” to choose the alternative. There is an alternative in the relative existence to being driven, unconsciously, by the desires and wants and perceived needs of ego-states, yet the alternative cannot be chosen by any "chooser." The alternatives can only happen post-Realization, but Realization cannot be chosen either. It happens or it doesn’t, and alternatives happen or they don’t.

By contrast, understand the lies that persons believe: (1) that they “have power or can get power” and (2) that “they have the power to choose.” They do not. Programmed dogs and programmed persons do not differ at all. No alternative exists for persons other than for them to do what they were programmed to do. Realization results in the alternatives coming into play automatically, but they only come into play spontaneously during the relative, AS IF style of living that happens among those who are in touch with reality (that is, freed of entrapment in the no-choice existence of programmed persons…of corrupted consciousness.) The post-Realization manifestation is marked by spontaneous and AS IF, natural living. Natural living is marked by alternatives to the types of thinking and the types of behaviors that were inspired by the erroneous belief in the body-mind-personality during the pre-Realization period. Yes, the alternatives happen naturally and spontaneously and without thought post-Realization. If using the definition offered, it can then be understood how choices/alternatives can happen even in the absence of choosers, just as eating can happen even in the absence of eaters. Then it can be understood how abidance as the I-Amness can happen even as I AM THAT. Please enter the silence of contemplation. [To be continued tomorrow]

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.
