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.

non-duality, non-duality-based fictional adventures, recovery, financial sanity, financial planning, and more


Many see that the results of the Ultimate Sickness and its symptoms of ignorance and insanity which lead to a sense of separation and to arrogance and to electing to office politicians who suffer from the most extreme cases of assoholism imaginable (which, in turn, leads to conflict and arguing and fighting and hating and wars and chaos) are a blot on humankind. 

A few who see that result seek something beyond that. Yet few will see that the rationales, routes, seeking, perceived problems, and that which is "effective" or "not effective" referenced above can also become a blot on humankind. How? 

By inspiring persons to assume the role of "The Super Seeker" and / or "The Super Religious One" and / or "The Spiritual Giant," thereafter becoming trapped in all sorts of going and doing and zooming and thus preempting any chance at all of being able to relax and take it easy.  The irony: they become so absorbed in seeking peace and so fanatical about perpetuating their supposedly new and improved identities that they guaranteed they'll have no peace.

The fact: the manifest consciousness will forever inspire wanting and desiring and fearing and, therefore, the seeking of that which is wanted or desired or the avoidance of whatever is feared. 

This morning, moving about in the backyard and enjoying a hot cup of Caffe Breve as I walked about in the less-than-crisp morning air, the birds in a large flock were scattered through the bare limbs of several trees. 

As soon as the birds saw me approaching, they darted about in dozens of directions before all flying away. Why? Because of the manifest consciousness. The manifest consciousness, above all else, wants to remain manifested, wants continuity.

Some of the fear which the birds displayed can be innate; other fears can result from modeling by the older birds in the flock. But above all, it was the most basic manifest-consciousness-generated desire for continuity which drove them to take flight and avoid a life form which was different from them. 

By way of contrast, it is only humans, as a result of perverted programming, conditioning, etc., who add other elements into the mix, elements which no other life forms have - namely, belief systems - and they store them in the mind and allow them to drive actions which are not rooted in the typical character of the manifest consciousness but are rooted in dualistic concepts which generate distortions which then cause what is actually non-threatening to be perceived as threatening (supposedly threatening to very manifestation of consciousness itself). 

Here's what the results of such extraneous elements in the mind can look like:

"The Wife" says, "I'm leaving you." "The Husband" believes that he cannot "exist" without the person who has been playing the co-dependent counterpart role to his role; thus, "The Husband" strikes out in what he takes to be a defensive action - defending the "self" - though clear witnessing allows all others to see that his actions are totally offensive; thus, annually in the U.S., 59% of all women killed are killed during such "breakups." 

The birds this morning could easily have attacked me. Their pecks when striking a human's head at 28 miles per hour (45 kilometers per hour) can be painful, so they could have inspired me to be the one avoiding them rather than vice-versa. But the zero-concepts, no-beliefs birds this morning moved away from what was perceived to be a potential threat rather than flying toward it. Some might call that "sane," but Nisargans call it "natural." 

Warped-mind humans, on the other hand, often run toward perceived threats . . . and attack. That is because the originally-pure universal consciousness has been blocked, so humans are seldom capable of differentiating between the sane and the insane, between the true and the false. 

If humans can be guided via a means which allows the blockages of clear seeing to be removed; if they can be freed from the distortions set in place in their minds by perverted programming, conditioning, etc.;

if they can be guided to being in conscious contact with the original nature of awareness; if they can function under the auspices of the unmanifested awareness and abide thereas, then they will not be driven to prefer conflict and arguing and fighting and hating and attacking and entering into wars and constantly generating chaos. 

Then, wherefore endless seeking? To find is to end the otherwise endless search. 

If persons can be freed of the agendas of the manifest consciousness even as the consciousness remains manifest, then their every thought and word and action can be a result of the consciousness being most influenced by (1) a sense of Oneness rather than a false belief in separation and different-from-ment and better-than-ment and by (2) an understanding of Love rather than hate. 

“Love says 'I am everything.' 
Wisdom says 'I am nothing.' 
Between the two, my life flows.” 

The options are clear: 

(A) traversing the relative existence in the manner of a still lake or - if moving - then moving through the relative existence in the manner of a gently "flowing" stream; 


(B) being unable to be still like the water of a lake on a calm spring morning and being unable to traverse the relative existence in the manner of a gently "flowing" stream and, instead, moving through the relative existence in the manner of a raging river with Class VI rapids, described as rapids which are "extraordinarily difficult" and which "cause paddlers to face constant threat of death because of extreme danger" and which are marked by such "violent whitewater that they should be left to paddlers of Olympic ability who take every safety precaution possible." 

As for the latter manner, been there . . . tried that lifestyle (and failed miserably). 

As for the former manner, there now . . . and enjoying the stillness or the calm movement through the relative when movement is called for.

Might turbulent waters sometimes come? Yes. Can they be witnessed without attachment and without becoming emotionally-intoxicated because they have come? Yes. Why? Because it has been seen that they will always eventually go . . . and on their own. Nothing in the relative existence lasts, be it deemed "good" by the masses or be it deemed "bad" by the masses.

The key point for today:

Once that type of abidance happens because a particular understanding was reached, and once the understanding of the functioning of the totality manifests, it need not be re-learned every day. As a child, my parents taught me how to tie the laces on my shoes. Once I understood that, I did not need to be re-taught that skill every day. I did not need more learning every day in regards to how to tie my shoes. 

Similarly, I do not need more learning or more teaching about how to abide naturally and calmly. I do not need to bow five times a day and talk to a non-existent, imaginary Being; I do not need to meet weekly in order to be taught once more about how I should behave throughout the upcoming week; I do not need to attend a meeting a day for the rest of my entire relative existence; I do not need to enter supposedly-holy buildings or travel to supposed-holy sites or forever read supposedly-holy texts.

Whatever does happen now is just a part of a grand dance which is being enjoyed because I dance lightly nowadays. And yes, the joy is often enhanced when I dance with others who are also dancing lightly. But neither the light dancing in the hall - nor the dancing outside the hall which never involves dancing lightly - is taken seriously in the long haul.

As Maharaj made clear: it is impossible to be bothered by those who do not have a clue about "where you live. "

I receive emails from people (actually, "persons" / "personas") who do not write to ask a question but who write in an effort to try to tell me in their near-endless epistles what they think they know and what they think they understand. Yet the fact that they have no ability to exercise an economy of words - much less honor the silence - makes clear that they do not yet understand that which is actually to be understood.

Understand what is actually to be understood and there will be no further need for rationales, routes, seeking, perceived problems, that which is "effective" or "not effective" and endless, energy-consuming, energy-wasting seeking. If belief in "The Super Seeker" ends, enjoying the stillness and the quiet can begin.

How can that happen? 

By being guided to a way to be free of the influence of the manifested conscious-energy and to abide as your original nature as unmanifested awareness-energy. 

The difference? That tomorrow, and it might be that many notions about "consciousness" and its often inflated value might lose some of its imagined "luster."

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.
