1. [See the offer in gold text following this post for details on how you can watch a retreat on video which includes a detailed discussion of all seven of the steps on the path as used by Maharaj] 

2. Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "God," the "Son of God," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. See the green text after today's post for the full meaning and implications of that. 

3. A new video ("Number Ten: Awakening Together Satsang, March 2018") has now been added in the far right column of this page, offering the opportunity to view a recent 2018 satsang session with Floyd being interviewed by Regina and Jacqueline of "The Awakening Together Group." (See the details in the blue text after this post.) 

The point in this series is that the non-dual message has long been widespread but has seldom been understood either then or now. So, to move on . . .


More on "Death" 

Recently Stephen Colbert was interviewing actor Keanu Reeves about two soon-to-be-released movies and said about one film: “So you're facing your own mortality and the mortality of all existence."
Reeves: "Yeah."
Colbert: "So what do you think happens when we die?"
Reeves: “I know that the ones who love us will miss us.” 

Colbert was "stunned into silence" and silently, paused, and finally reached across the desk to shake Reeves hand. 

The internet blew up with discussions by those among the "non-realized masses" as they remarked on “the profundity of that answer” and about “how Reeves ‘stunned’ the devout Catholic Colbert." Really?

In fact, it was a throwaway answer. Reeves understands that there is no “self” or “Self” to be involved in any post-manifestation happening, but he also understood that neither the U.S. audience nor the devout Catholic Colbert would be ready for the truth. 
Thus, Reeves kept it light and shallow and, after a slight pause decided to redirect his answer away from the truth to something more palatable for his host and audience, thus, he came up with “I know that the ones who love us will miss us.” 

Likely he was reflecting on Ava and how much he still misses here. Ava? 

In January 2000 Reeves and his then-girlfriend Jennifer Syme buried their child, a girl named Ava, who had been stillborn at eight months. With all other factors involved, the grief proved too much for their relationship, which ended several weeks later. 

While “I know that the ones who love us will miss us” offers none of the profundity which was assigned to the comment by so many, Reeves did once say, “Nothing ever truly dies. The universe wastes nothing – everything is simply transforming.” 

That might not indicate the level of understanding manifested among those who note that “nothing ever dies because nothing was ever born,” but it is pointing toward something beyond just "being missed."

A “realized nisargan” that is asked “What happens when we die?” will speak of (1) a “three-part composite unity” and (2) elements and (3) air and (4) conscious-energy respectively returning to the universal pools of elements and air and conscious-energy, she or he will point out, not that all is transforming, but that all is merely cycling. 

Reeves did say in one film, “All we are is dust blowing in the wind, dude.” That at least covers the “elements” part while the “transforming” quote shows that Reeves is on his way to an understanding which is deeper than just “we’ll be missed.” 

The Realized poet William Shakespeare offered the pointer that “Cowards die many times before their death.” 

It is the belief in conceptualized birth and conceptualized death that makes fear-based cowards of persons and that robs the masses of the peace that preempts fear and desire and outrage or any other kind of emotional intoxication that is generated by the assumption of ego-states and the belief in the concept of continuity. 

Shakespeare also endorsed “dying now” when he has Othello say, “If after every tempest come such calms, may the winds blow till they have waken'd death!” 

Death brings calm. So does realization. 
Death is later. realization can be now. 

Death allows for an "unrealized calm" to happen eventually. 
Realization allows for a realized calm to happen now. 

The question here: Why wait? 

If the tempests have not come and gone and allowed the calm to manifest, then it is time to be “waken’d” to the “death”—to the end—of having "this world being too much with you."

That is what awakening is about, and once the awakening happens, then “witnessing only” happens next, and that sets the stage for the unshakable calmness to manifest. 

Do you seek calmness but find outrage? What shift is being called for to end such futility? 

Other pointers Shakespeare offered on the subject: 

"Thou know'st 'tis common; all that lives must die, 
Passing through nature to eternity." 

"To die, to sleep; 
To sleep: perchance to dream: 
ay, there's the rub; 
For in that sleep of death 
what dreams may come."

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, 
Must give us pause: there's the respect 
That makes calamity of so long life." 

"Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore, 
So do our minutes hasten to their end; 
Each changing place with that which goes before, 
In sequent toil all forwards do contend." 

“The sense of death is most in apprehension; 
And the poor beetle that we tread upon, 
In corporal sufferance feels a pang as great 
As when a giant dies.” 

“If I must die I will encounter darkness as a bride, 
And hug it in mine arms.” 

“The weariest and most loathed worldly life 
That age, ache, penury and imprisonment 
Can lay on nature, is a paradise 
To what we fear of death.” 

“Golden lads and girls all must, 
As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.” 

“Come, let us take a muster speedily: 
Doomsday is near; die all, die merrily.” 

“Why, what is pomp, rule, reign, but earth and dust? 
And, live we how we can, yet die we must.” 

“Nothing in his life Became him like the leaving it.” 

As for what most humans throughout the ages have heard and believed regarding “death” and “what happens afterwards” - heard more often than not from supposedly “holy” or ‘religious” or “spiritual” men - the reality is this:

All that has ever been said or written throughout the history of humankind by holy or religious or spiritual men about "birth" and "death" and "the afterlife" can be placed inside a giant box and labeled thusly: 

“The contents herein amount to nothing more 
than a series of tales which have been told by idiots.”

In addition to the five non-duality books made available without charge by Andy Gugar, Jr. (see “FREEBIES” above), you can now access nearly 3,300 posts for any topics of interest to you. 

Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "God," the "Son of God," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. 


If looked at as nouns, they point to illusions and are, therefore, a total waste of time to even discuss; if looked at as verbs which are resulting in certain sane but rare behaviors among humanity, then they are worthy of some attention during the relative existence. 

Meaning? There are members of certain groups who say things such as "My concept of God in the past was of a weak God, an absentee God, A Santa Claus-type God, a mean, punishing, vindictive God, etc. Today, I am in close contact with a loving and caring God whom I worship and praise and glorify and give thanks to." 

The reply to that usually goes like this: "If you are in contact with a God that wants to be worshipped and praised and glorified, then you're dealing with someone like yourself - a narcissist - and hanging out with narcissists will never bring an end to your narcissism (that narcissism evidenced by the fact that you think you are "godly"). 

Next, in the phrase 'loving and caring God,' any supposed God that truly had her or his act together would tell you that the totally irrelevant part of that phrase is 'God' and that the only part that is relevant is the "loving and caring" part. 

"That is, a non-narcissistic god / goddess would say, "I care not an iota about being worshipped and praised and glorified by you or anyone else. How arrogant and insecure and needy would I have to be to want that? Forget the man-made, dreamed up noun 'God' and focus on the 'God as a verb' understanding and then go forth and let loving and caring be verbs - not adjectives - and let them generate the act of love and the act of caring and let those actions manifest through you." 

Yeshu'a (Jesus) and Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis were spot on: 

"No one shall ever see 'the kingdom of heaven.' It is within" 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 


"Heaven and earth shall fade away." 
--Yeshu'a (Jesus) 


 "Heaven and hell are not geographic places 
but are states of mind, nothing more than 
concepts dreamed up by men." 
--Pope John Paul II 

"There is no hell." 
--Pope Francis, the current pope 
in an interview with journalist Eugenio Scalfari, 
a writer used by the Pope to issue off the record 
teachings which become a part of the Papal Magisterium. 

[That said, would that the popes who have shown the courage to reject a core concept of their dogma - namely, "hell" - would find the additional courage required to question the very existence of their institution in light of the centuries-long cover-up of their history of raping children and in light of the mental and emotional and psychological scarring of billions of their members past and present. 

And that need for courage also applies as questions need to be asked about why so many other sky cults are still being supported and allowed to continue to exist as well. When certain types of programming and conditioning have been shown to blind the masses, they should end. Will they? Not likely. Why? 

Because what the masses think and say and do is most influenced by the international crime families which hold sway over the masses as criminals conduct their planet-wide operations. What are the major international crime families and which are the most influential and have the largest memberships? 

The Mafia / La Cosa Nostra; the Catholic Church (with it 1.2 billion followers) whose Vatican Bank worked for decades with the Mafia while laundering mob earnings (for a 15% all-profit charge by the Bank); Protestant and Evangelical Churches (with over 1.2 billion followers) like the one I was raised in where the youth director molested and sexually assaulted young girls; big business which has long created environments in which people have been abused; powerful political bodies like the U.S. Congress, etc., etc., etc.) 

With all of those crime families, neither the followers nor the leadership ever voluntarily step down or shut down their criminal activities. Be they gangs, organized crime families, religions, big business, politicians, etc., they all want control and they all want power and they all want money, and nothing internal will interfere with the driving forces at play. 

The masses must demand that all those in charge must step down and their groups and institutions must shut down, and there's the real problem because the continuation of their crimes are enabled not as much by the people running such crime organizations as they are enabled by the masses of people who - wanting some perceived "payoff" - remain involved with them and give them money and support them and aid and abet the continued existence of those criminal enterprises and thus facilitate the ability of church criminals and political criminals and other types of criminals to continue to commit their crimes.]

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.
