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. See the end of this post in red text for details.

The reason that my Cherokee grandmother and her relatives and those in her community so cherished that which they pointed to with the terms "Mother Earth" and "Father Sky" was because of what they understood.

They understood the functioning of the totality, the way that sunshine / light interacts with plants and allows for the manifestation of consciousness within a composite unity . . . that is, within an elemental plant and then within an elemental plant food body. 

They also understood that the composite unity circulates air and that the composite unity also circulates conscious-energy via the regular consumption of plant food. 

Even when they ate the meat of deer, they knew that the deer had survived by eating plants and was passing on to them the consciousness-sustaining energy provided by the consumption of plants. 

In other words, they intuitively understood science, tapping as they did into the "inner guru" or the inner resource" (which is only possible if the pure, universal consciousness is totally unblocked).

Maharaj said, "Someday science will advance to the point that it validates all of the non-dual teachings." 

Grandmother, having received no "formal education and learning," was prepared to receive the wisdom passed down to her, so she would have understood the words of the scientist Szent-Gyorgyi when he said, “What drives life is . . . a little electric current, set up by the sunshine." 

She understood the functioning of the totality without having to learn scientific words or principles, and she understood the necessity of healthy plants and sunshine and clean water in the process which she was temporarily a part of. 

Intent as a result of programming and conditioning to unquestioningly worship "A Creator" or what is supposedly "A Creator?" Such a "one / One" cannot exist because nothing can be created or destroyed; therefore, the closest you could come to worshipping something involving a process similar to what "creating" is believed to be among the masses would be to worship . . . the sun. 

While that is not recommended either, it does point to the scientific fact that there has never been "A Creator" or "creator parents." Interestingly, even the least intelligence among us would not leap to the conclusion that a farmer "creates" his crops. 

The fact is that he or she doesn't even really "grow" the crops. The farmer merely plants seeds of crops which had already grown naturally and spontaneously and automatically with the sun and rain (a.k.a., "nature") playing their roles and with the consciousness in the plants controlling what happens and what does not happen. 

[An acorn does not need any external guidance or an external "guide" or "Guide" to participate in the process which results in a forest. The consciousness within knows all that is required for that process to happen.]

When Grandmother - at the age of 75 - plowed her one-acre garden with her mule and then planted seeds, everything after that happened naturally and spontaneously and automatically. The same applies with humans when a seed is planted via an act of friction: science makes clear that all else happens naturally and spontaneously and automatically. 

There is no "other world" contribution to that process except for the sunshine which comes from beyond the earth, and there is no "other world" contribution to any other process which is a part of the functioning of the totality. 

That is why Maharaj stopped inviting persons to use dreamed up dogma-based concepts and dreamed up "spiritual" concepts in an effort to understand the functioning of the totality and instead eventually began inviting seekers to find the answers via science and facts. 

So, there will be a review of what "the Science of Manifestation and Beingness" reveals about . . . 

(1) a field of energy and (2) no confinement prior to the manifestation of energy into a confined space and (3) the development into a "being," (that is, into a composite unity with temporary "beingness" which is marked by being without knowing . . . by being without knowledge)

as well as what "the Science of Psychology" reveals about . . .

the development of - the assignment and / or assumption of - false identification with personalities and a mind and a body; about the assurance of multiple personality disorder development among the masses; and about the assurance that all will develop the Ultimate Sickness and will suffer from its key symptoms which Maharaj identified as (learned) "ignorance, stupidity, and insanity." 

Consider these stages:

THAT: Energy-Matter / Original Nature 

Without going into more detail than is required for the understanding, all in the universe is basically energy-matter. As for matter, dark matter and ordinary matter are examples of two key types of matter. As for energy, there are many types and forms of energy: chemical; nuclear; gravitational; mechanical; potential energy (which refers to any type of stored energy); kinetic; thermal as well as awareness-energy and conscious-energy among others. 

(RE: gravitational, see "space-time." The gravitational field can have three different types of energy density: dark energy, curvature and gravitational radiation). The point for non-dualists: awareness-energy and conscious-energy are not "special" and cannot make anyone or anything special. Both are just forms of energy, so THAT is nothing special (or "Special" or "Supreme" either). 

Awareness is just a particular form of energy which is not aware of itself unless manifested as the unblocked consciousness which can come to understand what I am explaining right now.

Consciousness is manifested awareness which is capable of being conscious-of and which has an intimation of that which is immortal or lasting, namely, that manifested awareness-energy will eventually - once more, as originally - have no awareness of awareness or of conscious-energy either; thus, the consciousness is also nothing more than a particular form of energy, capable of temporarily being conscious-of. From that field of energy can come, strictly at random, . . . 


In the case of composite unities called "humans," an egg with conscious-energy manifested and a sperm cell with conscious-energy manifested and were united as a result of an act of friction and conscious-energy manifested within the resulting space of formed by plant food elements. As more and more food-cum-consciousness was consumed by the so-called "mother," more and more elements formed in the womb so that another elemental plant food body begin to form.

Nothing is being "created" in that process which is occurring at a rate of two times per second on the planet. What already exists is merely being cycled. Nothing more nor less is happening.


Those cycled and elements developed into what is called "a being"; that is, another case of "beingness" began and the result was the formation of another three-part composite unity of elements, air, and conscious-energy. Nothing was created. It all just cycled. That is what happened with this universe and all other universes, and it is what happened in the case of what is called "a baby." Parents created nothing; they were just participants in the natural process of cycling elements. 


That "being" was merely being, meaning being without knowing . . . without knowledge. It came with a blank tablet (genetically-passed-along archetypal images notwithstanding), with a brain that had no other knowledge recorded on it but as yet without a "mind."


Soon, each "being" would be taught many things, including false identities / multiple personalities which would set up the Multiple Personality Disorder early on. 


Part of the brain eventually would begin to form a "mind" that would be capable of storing and retrieving information; once the mind became filled with nonsense via programming, conditioning, etc., then a very full mind indeed manifested. 


Early on, the child identified with the parent or parents and sensed the oneness, but eventually it would discover its hands, and then later its feet, and then later the rest of its body. It would then stop identifying with the parent(s) and would identify with itself, meaning, with its own body. That is as far removed as one can get from its original nature, creating seven steps of separation from what it truly is (energy) vs. what it takes itself to be. 

Note that nothing is farther removed from reality / Reality than body identification, and note than nothing is farther removed from truth than that which ignores science and facts and which is the stock and trade of con-men and con-women who control persons (and their money) via the cons' fabrications and lies and untruths, even as those are part and parcel of the concepts taught by the 4,200 religions currently active on the planet; 

whether those are part and parcel of the spiritual movements and programs which teach their concepts to millions of members; whether those are part and parcel of the advertising campaigns of businesses which distort the facts and truth about the products they are selling; whether those are part and parcel of the brainwashing which the military-industrial complex spreads;

whether those are part and parcel of the lies which political leaders spread; or whether those are part and parcel of any other persons or institutions which easily manipulate persons because they are trapped in their magical, distorted and ignorance-based thinking.

The anti-science, anti-facts crowd can shout their beliefs as much as they like from the rooftops or from within their temples and churches and synagogues and mosques and via their podcasts and television shows but their false words do not change the fact that neither this universe nor any other was "created" in six days by a "Creator God"; do not change the fact that planet earth is not just around 6000 years old; 

do not change the fact that "making babies" is not a ménage-a-trois process whereby a man and a woman and a god join together to "create a new life"; do not change the fact that there is no "Arbiter in the Sky" who is tracking whether you are sinful or virtuous and therefore not deserving of an eternal reward or deserving of said reward; 

and do not change the fact that when a temporarily-manifested and constantly-changing composite unity comes to an end, the elements return to the universal pool of elements and the conscious-energy returns to the universal pool of conscious-energy and the air returns to the universal pool of energy and shall never exist again as one or another kind of entity.

When all of the parts of the body that you or I are presently taken to be by the uninformed or wrongly-informed masses, when all of the parts are eventually scattered and moving to a variety of universal pools, how in blue blazes could all of those various parts re-form in the same order and manner as existed at the time when mahasamadhi was taken and reshape into what they were perceived to be at that time and then take on some gauzy, 1/2 person 1/2 bird form and fly about?

Of how in the case of males who died for Allah take on the exact same form as existed at the time mahasamadhi was taken and then be transported to a celestial brothel in the sky where their god rewarded them with eternal sex to be provided by 72 virgins (and also thousands of wives and thousands of whores)?

Or how could the exact same speck of consciousness which existed at that time be placed into another body and live on a slightly higher plane or on a possibly far lower place and undergo such reincarnations over and over and over?

If an elementary school, fourth-grade-level-understanding of the sciences of botany and biology were to be reached, then one could only laugh at one's former ignorant beliefs which were held in such esteem that

(A) they had been constantly talked about, constantly debated, constantly argued, constantly defended, and constantly spread

or which had been held in such high esteem that

(B) persons were driven to kill for those (false) beliefs or were driven to die for those (false) beliefs

which, by the way, were based not in fact but in myths and superstitions and magical thinking and ignorance and dreamed up nonsensical tales.

To be continued.

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.
