The next topic which would be on a “final bucket list” of talks if only three hours of the manifestation to be remaining would be this:

There Are Hundreds of Sources of Pain, But Only One Source of Misery and Suffering, Part One

To reconsider and to continue to condense:

1. Find the simplest version of these teachings.

2. Abide naturally and spontaneously and modestly.

3. Seek not a "good role" to replace "bad" roles.

4. End the search for identity and rest in the awareness of the nothingness.

5. Both the relative and the Absolute are much ado about nothing, so relax and enjoy the manifestation ... NOW.

6. Settle not for instability ... find that which provides stability ... NOW.

7. Question.

8. Be free of the effects of your programming, conditioning, domestication and acculturation.

9. March only to the beat of your inner guru.

10. As for religion and / or spirituality: try it, but don't buy it.

11. Next, understand that there are hundreds of sources of pain, but only one source of misery and suffering.

The masses are in a mad rush every day, searching high and low and here and there for a way to alleviate their fears and to satisfy their desires (which usually involves a search for externals that can "make them joyous" or facilitate their being "ecstatically-blissful").

Some assert more moderately, "I just want to be happy" (or, if a parent, "I just want my child / children to be happy").

First, understand that it is impossible, during the relative existence, to fixate in a state that is free of emotional intoxication and feeling. If Realization happens, then the ego-states that are a prerequisite for emotional intoxication will be eliminated, but the Realized will still feel for as long as the manifestation continues. The by-product of Realization is not, most assuredly, a cold, robotic inability to feel. Quite the contrary, in fact.

As for "finding externals that can make you happy," understand that anytime you find any external which you claim is "making you happy," be assured that the same external will eventually be involved with making you miserable. And whatever makes you the happiest will eventually make you the saddest. If you co-dependently empower externals to meet your perceived desires and "needs," then prepare for the consequences of giving people and / or places and / or things the power to determine how you feel (and / or emote).

Are you one who is enamored with the woman you are dating and one who is assured that - if you can only persuade her to marry you - you will be happy forever? Check the statistics and see how often that works out. Are you a woman who has "given up" and who has decided that "a man is the plan"? Check the statistics and see how that works out.

Are you certain that you'll be happy if you are finally able to buy your dream home or finally able to find someone who will buy it for you? Check with the three million in the U.S. and the many millions of others around the globe who have received foreclosure notices in recent years. They were ecstatic when they bought their homes, miserable when they "lost" their homes.

(Here, having "lost" three homes during days gone by, not only is there an ability to relate to how those millions are feeling - and usually emoting as well - but also there has come an understanding of the means by which that process can happen and be transitioned without forever-lingering misery and suffering.)

Too, there have been far too many cases observed here where someone was ecstatic when they finally had the child that was going to be a source of joy for their entire lives, only to suffer the misery of losing that child. Sadly, that dream come true, which gave them the greatest joy, eventually became the ever-recurring nightmare that has given them their greatest misery. In the case of millions now unemployed around the globe, the same instability has happened: joyous over finding a job they wanted, miserable now over having lost it.

And then there are those who were sure that they had found some external "Higher Power" that was going to solve all their problems or give them the power to handle every problem that might arise. The time came when that proved not to be the case at all (whether they realize or do not realize that such is the case).

During two stays in a hospital in October of 2011, some of the sources of pain were experienced by the plant food body here, and a wide variety of the sources of pain in other plant food bodies was witnessed. Around the globe this year, the equivalent of US$24 billion will be spent on medications to alleviate pain. The cost of efforts to alleviate misery and suffering cannot be calculated as easily.

Here, there is no advice about what actions you might or might not take regarding pain, but there is most assuredly a means by which you can be free of misery and suffering, a means which can be shared. More on that.

To be continued.

Please enter into 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.
