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.)

4. Some prefer paperback books even if they have to wait a day or so to receive it and have to pay more for a printed book and its shipment. Now, 10 paperback books by Henderson are in print and available in two anthologies through Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and over 40,000+ booksellers around the globe including in the Americas, Germany, India, Italy, Poland, Russia, China, Spain, Brazil and South Korea.

and thus

 The term "Reality" points to all that is involved with the universal functioning of the totality which operates under the auspices of "natural laws" which sometimes provide a certain level of order but which also generate the chaos seen throughout the universe, including stars / suns exploding; asteroids smashing into other bodies and destroying life; galaxies smashing into each other, etc.

One writer noted in the early 1990's that the case with the universe is this:  "Chaos surrounds us, and yet so do orderly patterns."

Such is also the case with "reality" as well, that is, with the happenings and the realities of the relative existence.

In the first case, the chaos vs. order duality in the universe is happening spontaneously without any god or goddesses or some "one all-powerful god" or some "Special Force" that is driving and controlling what is happening. The formation of this universe and all universes has happened spontaneously, and at times there are parts of the universe which are chugging along in a seemingly fairly stable and predictable patterns but which will not last.

By contrast, the relative chaos vs. order duality on planet earth is being driven for certain precise, external forces, specifically the distorted, duality-based content stored in the minds of the masses.

After Yeshu'a ("Jesus") was exposed to some of the non-dual teachings, he is reported to have shared this: "Dual-minded persons are unstable in all ways." Why?

Because their minds are filled with non-scientific, totally-BS belief systems which manifest with the Ultimate Sickness, the key symptoms of which Maharaj identified as "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity."

And "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity" will result in a mind driven by duality-based beliefs which will always generate the instability and chaos which Yeshu'a referenced in his non-dual pointer.

While the chaos in the universe seems at times to move at a snail's past, the chaos among the masses on earth who are driven by minds filled with "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity" and beliefs which can result in chaos zipping along at rocket speed.

For example, after the star called "the sun" by earthlings enters its eventual red giant phase and expands beyond the earth's current orbit, all life on earth will end as the planet is absorbed by the sun. That will happen in about 7.5 billion years. See? Snail's pace.

But the human-generated chaos on planet earth can move at rocket speed. Parents in the U.S. might drop off their children at an elementary school in the morning and say, "I'll pick you up at 3 P.M. I love you. Have a good day!" only to learn that someone entered the school an hour later and used a readily-available AR-15 to kill dozens of children. Chaos can manifest very quickly with humans, moving them from a state of calm contentedness one second to a state of hurt and pain and misery and suffering the next.

[A side note: The AR-15 is the exact same weapon as the AR-16 which is used by the military in war. The justification for its sale is that the AR-15 is a semi-automatic weapon firing 45 rounds per minutes whereas the military version can shoot off 3-round bursts or can be used in a fully-automatic mode and as such can fire 800 rounds per minute. The fact: the AR-15 can be modified so that it is not limited to 45 rounds per minute and can perform at a rate that is similar to the AR-16. The estimate is that there may be as many as 10 million AR-15's in civilian hands in the U.S., but no one knows for sure.]

Regarding the non-dual understanding which Maharaj offered, what might explain why he initially estimated that "only 1 out of 100,000 will ever get this" but later said that "only 1 out of 1,000,000 will ever get this" and eventually - after decades of working with seekers - modified that guesstimate to "1 out of 10,000,000"? 

Consider the enormity of the obstacles which one who works for 20 or 40 or 80 years with seekers of the non-dual understanding will witness: 

Obstacle #1:"TEACHERS" 

The first obstacle involves all of those who for thousands of years have taught duality instead of non-duality. They include the writers of so-called "holy books" and "holy texts" and "holy treatises" which are the earliest repositories of the near-infinite number of dualistic concepts which persons have dreamed up over the years: 

good vs. evil 
right vs. wrong 
them vs. us 
us vs. those others 
different from vs. the same as 
better than vs. worse than 
gods and mortals 
good gods and mortals vs. a bad devil or a bad god of evil
this world vs. another world
this life and the afterlife
rewards now vs. punishments now 
eternal rewards later and forever vs. eternal punishments later and forever 
the brain vs. the heart
science and facts vs. magical thinking and fiction
blah blah blah blah blah blah 

Often those writers were also the talkers in their cultures, so they were also the ones who programmed and conditioned and acculturated and domesticated and brainwashed and indoctrinated the non-reading masses to believe the concepts which the writers had dreamed up and written down. Knowing that the masses were illiterate, the game plan all along was for the content of so-called "holy books" and "holy texts" and "holy treatises" to be proclaimed and explained orally by a religious leader or a spiritual leader and / or a political leader.

[By the time that 300+ years had passed since the crucifixion of Yeshu'a ("Jesus"), the political and religious leaders were discouraging the populace from reading the Bible on their own; eventually, they would even pass a law which made the owning and reading of a Bible a capital offense, punishable by death. Efforts to restrict the reading of their texts continued through the Middle Ages and it became illegal to translate the Bible into native languages. 

Nowadays, the trend continues. One survey said that only 9% of self-proclaimed "Christians" have read the entire Bible. Another poll showed only 6% have done so. (Both seem to be higher-than-actual percentages from my observations, but whatever.) That just-tell-me-what-I-need-to-believe-unquestioningly-and-I'll-believe-it mentality has continued for thousands of years, right up to this very day.] 

The levels of mind control which come with programming and conditioning and domesticating and acculturating and indoctrinating and brainwashing are formidable and pervasive. Teach children that they will "go to hell" or "suffer forever" or "suffer through many lifetimes" if they question what they are told to believe on blind faith alone and they will behave like dutiful children and believe the myths and superstitions and nonsense they were taught right into - and throughout - their adult-age years. 

Ninety-seven percent of the persons on planet earth claim an affiliation with one religion or another, and almost 100% of the time, the religion which they claim as their own is actually just the one that their parents forced upon them. 

Obstacle #2: "SEEKERS" 

First, most will never seek, having been programmed and conditioned to accept the notion that they need not find anything else because the beliefs which have been passed down to them from generation to generation are all that they will ever need to know.

For those who become miserable enough, some often end up in a "program" to find "something more" or "something else" to bring relief. There, if they stay around long enough, they will be re-programmed by that program.

Should their seeking lead them to the non-dual message, which of the five basic teaching methods will they be exposed to (one of which is "Pseudo Advaita" and not even close to the non-dual message at all)? Or which of the thousands of subsets might they hear or read about? And are not the odds even greater that they'll hear about and be attracted to the ones Maharaj warned seekers to stay away from, namely, the "Big Name Teachers" who are offering a populist message in order to attract crowds and become millionaires via their sells? 

One of the founders of a popular alcohol treatment program bemoaned the fact that their membership's "success rate" had plunged and their death rate had risen after a few years and that only 2% to 5% were staying sober for a mere 5 years. He did offer a point that is salient for all seekers:

He said that the high failure rate was not the cause of the newcomers and seekers who came to the program but was the cause of the poor sponsorship and leadership skills among those whom seekers found when they joined the program. 

The same applies to almost all seekers in all venues. More often than not in all of the venues where people are seeking, the blind are trying to lead the blind; moreover, the masses have normalized and accepted that sheep-like approach for thousands and thousands of years.

Obstacle #3: "RE-PROGRAMMING" 

The next obstacle is that, no matter which venues seekers might seek in, almost all venues use a "re-program them" approach. That would be like doctors who work with cancer patients deciding that the best way to treat cancer would be to . . . inject more cancer cells into all of the organs of their patients. 

When persons have a Sickness rooted in programming, they do not need re-programming. They need de-programming. Here, it is suggested that seekers do not need to learn more but need to un-learn all. They do not need to be taught more but merely need to be un-taught all.

So much for "We have a program run by untrained, armchair psychologists who can restore you to sanity and give you a fabulous life that will be marked by being happy, joyous, and free." (Nuh-uh. Unfortunately, most of those persons will be fooled into thinking that they are now sane; then, their distorted views will mistake their still-depressive, death-in-life, mental and emotional condition as being normal or even happy.)  

Obstacle #4: "A LACK OF READINESS" 

Most sick people will not follow a proper protocol earnestly and wholeheartedly, even if they happen to luck upon one. Who wants to "have less" or "give up everything" after having been programmed and conditioned for decades to believe that "life is all about getting more"? That success is about accumulating more? That the one who dies with the most toys or the most stuff . . . wins? 

Who wants to give up the debilitating but highly-valued beliefs which are at the root of their Sickness when they have been programmed and conditioned to fight for their beliefs and, in many cases, even to die for their beliefs? 

Most will never be ready for that. How many might? 1 out of 100,000? 1 out of 1,000,000? 1 out of 10,000,000? Or nowadays, even fewer?

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 their god / their 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.]

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.
