TODAY’S CONSIDERATIONS 

A new release, entitled What a Cherokee Grandmother Passed On to a Grandson, is available as of today. 

The book (92 pages with pictures) is packed with non-dual pointers which were shared over the years by a Cherokee Grandmother. The content contrasts what life was like when, as a child, I escaped the chaos of the inner city and found periods of solitude when spending summer vacations with a Cherokee Grandmother who lived in a small cabin in the Piney Woods of East Texas, who was a Medicine Woman / healer to many, and who was the first to introduce me to the non-dual teachings. 

The book offers details of what life was like in the city, living on the same street as two warring gangs, living in a family in which the frustration of post-war poverty dominated all aspects of life as young men returned from WWII with few saleable skills, and facing hardships and challenges and chaos on a daily basis. 

Then, the book offers a contrast, showing how peaceful and calm and stable life was when shared with a “fully-realized” Grandmother who modeled exactly how enjoyable a relative existence can be when the non-dual understanding is present. In spite of how young I was in those days, Grandmother obviously recognized some possibilities and began laying the foundation for the "full understanding" to come someday. 

The book also shares the hardships faced by Grandmother's ancestors who left Asia to escape the Aryan invasion, who brought the Far Eastern teachings to what is now called “North America” and beyond, who passed on to her the understanding (which allowed her to maintain a state of unconditional happiness and lightness and which allowed her to pass those life-altering understandings on to me).

Of interest to me was how, in spite of their land being taken from them and in spite of burying a husband and a son and in spite of having to raise her surviving children all alone, the non-dual understanding allowed Grandmother to abide in a manner which was marked by total independence when most woman in the U.S., “Native American” or not, were often being forced into a life of dependency and co-dependency.

The book shows how tolerance allowed a marriage to thrive even as her husband was involved with a Baptist Church many days a week while Grandmother went daily into the forest to do what she did. 

Also offered are non-dual lessons that were commonplace among the indigenous peoples and which they passed on to her and which she then passed on to me, including lessons which revealed what is needed (and what is not needed) in order to abide contentedly and independently; 

lessons learned while seeking the source of Grandmother’s uninterrupted happiness / contentment; lessons in some of the ways and wisdom of the indigenous peoples; and what was revealed to me in my final visit with Grandmother before finishing high school and going off to college, only to receive that unwanted phone call from dad during my first days away.

Everything she taught was consistent with what Maharaj taught, and if ever anyone embodied throughout an entire relative existence the totally-natural manner of living which he recommended, it was Grandmother. The book shows in detail exactly what a Nisargan mode of living looks like when one is guided by the clear perspective which the understanding can provide. Grandmother pointed the way along "the path" to me, and she can point the way to you as well by way of what she now offers once more via the content of this book.

Non-Duality Paperback Books on Amazon.com

Five Free eBooks

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

I.
"GOOD vs. EVIL?" or "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, and INSANITY?"

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.

II.
"THE VISION"

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.

III.
"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.

IV.
Seeking

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.

V.
"THE MOST DANGEROUS BELIEF OF ALL"

“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.
