From the book

It is not unusual for teachers to offer one message at a certain point of their teaching careers and a different message at another point. So it was with the one called "Jesus Christ"; furthermore, it is almost always the "final talks" among teachers that usually point most effectively to Truth, the wisdom that comes over a period of years usually allowing the teacher to be more insightful than at earlier ages. 

Early on, Jesus shared what he was taught in the temple. In the scriptures, the last reference to him in the temple was at the age of twelve. The scriptures record nothing about his life from the age of twelve until his return to Jerusalem at the age of thirty. 

For at least the last three years of his life and maybe longer, he offered a totally different message and modeled a totally different lifestyle. As for the lifestyle, what he modeled was to leave organized religion. He no longer taught in the temple or attended any services in the temple. 

As for the message, he no longer offered any Jewish teachings but offered certain pointers from the Far Eastern teachings known as "Advaita." For those calling themselves "Christians" but who do not understand that Jesus was teaching the Advaita philosophy or principles at the end of his ministry, they will surely miss out on the understanding of what some deem to be his most confusing statements and what others deem to be his most profound statements. 

As with all Advaitin teachers, he offered pointers in a "level-appropriate" manner; thus, some of the pointers he offered to those who were still "asleep" might have had a familiar ring to them (and to modern-days "Christians" as well). 


"When you speak of Me, speak of Me as I AM." 

Mentioned earlier was the summative statement of the Advaita teachings: "I AM THAT; I AM." The point of that statement is that xx(A) temporarily, there is a body-cum-consciousness that is manifested, but 

(B) the body will not be permanent and the consciousness will not remain manifested therein and 

(C) THAT Which You Are is permanent and can be pointed to with the word THAT. 

Also in that statement is the point that the use of "THAT" and no other labels or names to point to what is permanent is reflected in one of the principles of Taoism, namely, that 

(D) the name that can be named is not the eternal Name. 

For Jesus to refer to himself as "Me" points to the eternal "Me," not to the temporary "me" that is the body with conscious-energy temporarily manifested therein. For him to advise all to refer to him as "I AM" is his recognition of the Advaita teaching that the temporarily manifested consciousness is often referred to in those teachings as the "I AM" or the "AM-ness" or the "IS-ness." 


"Before Abraham was, I AM." 

How much confusion has arisen when uninformed Christian ministers have tried to explain - or explain away - that line? How many have tried to dodge the questions about that comment completely, as happened every time that "floyd" asked preachers about those two lines in the churches of his youth? 

If "a Christian" is not familiar with the summative statement of Advaita, I AM THAT; I AM, then she / he will have no clue that it was Advaitin pointers that were being taught by the one they call "Jesus" or "The Christ." 

[Also, most do not connect those I AM quotes with the phrase that Moses plagiarized and placed in the mouth of a burning bush / god, leaving off the semi-colon in the process. As a result, Jews and Christians alike read "I AM THAT I AM" and conclude, "Ahhh, deep. I don't understand it, but that is very deep."] 

If other statements attributed to Jesus (whose actual name was Yeshu'a) were accurate, he also offered these Advaita pointers: 

Meanwhile, what are some of the present-day, duality-driven politicians saying? 

1. Kimberley Paige Barnette, a candidate for mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina suggested voters should vote for her on September 12 to be the Republican candidate for mayor because she is 


2. “I don’t think we should encourage more lower-income people to [come to] Charlotte. We should attract higher-income people.” 

3. “I don’t believe that transgenders should be in bathrooms based on their, who they identify with, I never have,” she said. “I believe that there could be a separate restroom, but however I do not believe that that should be allowed whatsoever." 

4. “As a magistrate, I issued processes on persons that were in the bathroom, males that were in the bathroom, and you never know what they are, and they scare children, quite frankly.” So it is. 

To be continued.

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.
