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.

[Continued from earlier]

Religious and "spiritual" organizations and groups and venues have held a monopoly on seeking for over 5000 years. That's just as well, to a small degree, because of this: 

whether looking 

(1) at the seven steps on the "path to realization" which Maharaj used early on 


(2) at the four steps on the "path to realization" which Maharaj used later on, 

the third step involved the assumption of (and the playing of) religious and / or spiritual roles, at least for a while. 

Yet when persons stop at that third step, assuming that "they have arrived," they are either fooling themselves or they are allowing others to fool them. 

When I was operating the European Tour Company I owned, one itinerary had participants flying into Schiphol Airport outside Amsterdam. After spending a few days in that city, we traveled south with stopovers in Frankfurt and Munich, Germany, continued south and spent several days and nights each in Venice and Florence and Rome, Italy;

spent a couple of days and nights in Nice, France; and then traveled north for a visit to Lucerne, Switzerland; then we spent several days and nights in Paris; and then finally returned via Belgium to Amsterdam for the flight home.

Now suppose people paid for that three-week, multiple-cities tour but I stopped in Freiburg, Germany (a small town approximately at the halfway point between Amsterdam and Rome). Now consider these scenarios:

1. What if I had been insane and thought that we had arrived at the southernmost city on the itinerary and told the travelers that "we have arrived" and that we were in Rome? 

2. Or what if I actually thought that what I had to offer them in Freiburg was as good as anything else and convinced myself that they would be better off not doing all that traveling and they could rest and be at more peace by following my plan? I could take them to the Freiburg Cathedral and tell them they were in the Vatican; I could take them to the Augustiner Museum and tell them they were in the Galleria Borghese (I mean, art is art, right?); and I could take them to the Seepark and tell them that they were seeing the Tiber River. 

And what difference would it make, really, so long as when they returned home they could tell their friends and relatives all about Rome and the Vatican and the Galleria Borghese and the Tiber River? 

And suppose the less-traveled or the less wise or the older, less-clear-thinking people in the group bought into the lies and nonsense that I was telling them, but others began questioning what I was saying. Suppose with them I got into their faces and began screaming and threatening them and telling them if they did not believe me I would see to it that they suffered from the rest of their lives and for eternity afterwards. They, too, might acquiesce. 

3. And what if I sincerely believed that my motives were good and that what I was doing was helping them in the long run while also making a lot of money by controlling them and altering their beliefs and playing to their fears and desires? As long as they truly believed they were getting some benefits, then that should be enough, that should be just fine. 

If they at least believed that they had arrived, then so what? If they were truly convinced, without a doubt, that they had reached the final place on the path or journey, so what? 

If I could, in the way that cult leaders do, convince them to set aside reality and buy into my message, then if they later told a local that "I love you Romans and love your city of Rome" and the local said, "You haven't reached Rome. You're in southern Germany," then they could ignore that person and walk away or they might stay and fight with the one questioning their belief that they had arrived. 

Same in the U.S. If I were traveling from Los Angeles to New York City and stopped in Chicago and really believed that I had reached my destination and was in New York, I'd either be fooling myself or I'd be allowing whoever told me we were in New York City to have fooled me completely.

Ah, so many have been seen to become angry or even violent if someone invites them to consider if the organization or group or venue they have become affiliated with has really led them along the entirety of a "path" and to the real destination.

Or what if I were arranging a trip for Holocaust survivors and on the day of the trip I sent a bus from the Achtung-Gestapo Bus Company to pick them up and had hired a tour guide dressed in an SS uniform who was welcoming them on board? 

What kind of a jerk would I be to trigger their trauma and tell them to suck it up and just do what they were being told because the end result was going to be worth all of their mental and emotional discomfort and pain and suffering? 

Yet that is exactly the advice being offered to many who are like the man mentioned earlier who approached me after a talk and said, "I was abused as a child by a priest. I've done years of work to try to get beyond that, but where I am today is, I still cringe when people start talking religion to me. So my question is, have you found a way to guide people to realization and freedom without their having to buy into the dogma you talk about?" 

Do those types not deserve a means by which they can reach a realized state which does not re-traumatize them and add to the misery and suffering which they are seeking to end? 

To those who have been fooled; to those who, for one reason or another, cannot search in traditional organizations and groups and venues; and to those who have tried it all but still have not been freed from all of the effects of the learned ignorance which has been passed on to them via programming, conditioning, etc., do they not deserve a chance to be guided in a way which might be "outside the conventional box" but which might work for them when all else has failed? 

When Hurricane Alicia struck Houston, Texas with a direct hit in 1983, the eye of the storm passed over the house we were living in at the time. The winds first blew the trees on our double lot in one direction; then there was the calm in the eye for a spell; then the winds began pushing the trees in the opposite direction as the tail end of the storm passed through. 

Eleven trees, each 80 to 100-feet tall, were blown over or snapped. The ones which snapped were the ones that were the most rigid. The ones which were still standing after the storm were the ones which were more flexible and which bent with the wind. 

If you are offering non-dual pointers, are you flexible enough and aware enough to be willing to employ a non-traditional approach with those who cannot follow a traditional, religious, or so-called "spiritual" path? 

Is a non-traditional approach with those who cannot follow a traditional, religious, or so-called "spiritual" path okay with you? Or is there a belief system that there is only one right way to be freed of the mental effects of the ignorant and insane programming, conditioning, etc. which lead persons to be trapped in the ways of certain organizations and groups and venues which offer some of the most ignorant and insane programming, conditioning, etc. ever seen or heard? 

In my "teaching days," I often heard persons ask, "I don't get it. Can you explain that another way?" The answer always was, "If I can't, then I'd had to admit that I'm not very capable, right?" Then I'd explain the pointer in a different way. 

Often, nothing is being called for more loudly than "a different route," a "different way," and even . . . 

a robe-less way; a cross-less way; a zero-concepts way; a no-beheading-others way; a no-wailing-at-a-wall way; a no-dunking-in-water way; a no-special-all-protective-underwear way; a no-pull-your-wife-through-a-slit-in-the-veil way to get her into heaven; a no-holy-text way; a no-angry-god / drown-the-SOB's way; 

a no-sexual-molestation-in-church way; an only-prayer / no-medicine-for-an-ill-child way; a no-bring-people-from-the-"Galactic Confederacy"-and-stack-them-around-volcanoes-and-kill-them-with-hydrogen-bombs way; a no-love-what-is / love-your-rapist way; a no-assuming-"good"-or-"new-and-improved"-personas way; and none of the other thousands of nonsensical and ignorant and insane ways which persons have dreamed up over the millennia. 

Maharaj was trapped in notions passed down via traditional and conventional ways for years, and that led him to pass on versions of the Ultimate Medicine which were totally ineffective, long-term. Same here. 

A shift came after finding a different route which finally led to the end of not being able to differentiate the true from the false; an end to being driven by blind faith; and an end to unquestioningly accepting ignorance as wisdom. Then only came the willingness to ask this question: 

"Is it possible that everything that you have ever been told or taught or heard or read or now believe is . . . false?" 

And what came, by using a different path, was an awareness of the unequivocally-accurate answer to that query: 


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.
