To review the key pointers being discussed at this point:

The most influential obstacles of all to realizing and being free have come via dreamed up myths and superstitions and via "religious" and / or "spiritual" sources, including religious and / or spiritual thoughts, ideas, concepts, notions, views, theories, inklings, perceptions, a.k.a., "beliefs."

A man who was abused as a child by a priest. man approached and asked for a way "to be guided to a state of realization and freedom without their having to buy into dogma."

The popular venues where seekers seek (or don't) have a 5000+-year history of failing to set persons free of their distorted and delusional and freedom-blocking and independence-blocking belief systems. venues.

Thus it should be clear why Maharaj eventually advised seekers to avoid those, leading to this totally different option:

[Continued from yesterday]:

Now, to continue with the story of the man called Mark who killed his wife in front of their daughters because the wife was leaving him. Why discuss that event? Because Mark's story is the story of humankind, not because all humans are murderers and not because 59% of all women killed annually in the U.S. are killed by their mate / lover / spouse / etc. during the breakup of their relationship or marriage.

No, it is because all but a few humans on planet earth have already been made sick - mentally and emotionally sick - by the oldest pandemic of all, the pandemic which spread the Ultimate Sickness into every nation on the planet and into every community on the planet.

The result is that all persons end up like Mark and are being driven by the hidden, subconscious agendas of the false personality identifications which they have been assigned or later assumed, and when persons believe lies and allow those lies to determine their every thought and word and actions, then they display three of the key symptoms of the Ultimate Sickness which Maharaj identified as "ignorance, stupidity and insanity."

And those symptoms manifest whether one is abiding under the influence of drugs and / or alcohol or whether they are stone cold sober. So the story continues:

Some have asked how I ended up in a session with Mark and how I felt after the session. I ended up in the session because I was hired by the owner of the center who was trying to treat Mark’s addiction but who understood that drug and alcohol abuse has nothing to do with drugs and alcohol but has everything to do with a plethora of factors which require a holistic treatment plan.

The owner understood that an awareness of the role which personality plays in subconsciously determining and controlling a person's thoughts and words and actions is one part of a holistic treatment plan. 

The owner also understood that Mark was like everyone else who came to his center and that none of them have, say, a drinking problem but that all of them have a host of thinking problems. 

(Most who enter treatment are told that on day one but then nothing is done to address the actual thinking problems because groups and centers for the most part are all being run by untrained, non-professionals who haven’t a clue about treating the mental problems of those who come their way. 

Instead, their approach is like the one Maharaj tried and abandoned because he saw it did not work, the approach which says, “Sure you have mental problems and sure you're insane, but if you become spiritual, God will heal all that.” And their evidence is? A few who stop drinking but all of whom remain as insane as ever without having a clue that such is their circumstance.) 

So why was I hired to conduct that session? The owner knew that I had been working with people and couples and companies, administering a personality inventory test, completing an analysis of the results, and then conducting sessions to share the results and to discuss the way in which - and the degree to which - each personality type drives thoughts and words and actions. 

The owner understood that the unconscious agendas of assigned and assumed personalities determine all thoughts and words and actions. Because I had told him when he hired me years earlier to work with all of his staff members on their “personality issues,” the owner knew what Maharaj had said about the Ultimate Sickness, that it is not only rooted in - but it also perpetuates - “ignorance, stupidity and insanity.” 

He also knew and understood, because I had told him earlier, that Maharaj said that "the cause of all is all” and that the “ignorant and stupid and insane” actions which can be observed every day all around the globe are the result of a long line of persons being driven by “ignorance and stupidity and insanity.” 

The owner also understood, because I had shared it with him in the past, that Maharaj could have added to his list a fourth key factor which is at play in all of the global instances of separating and hating and fighting and killing and killing in the name of a God, namely, the oh-so-prevalent sickness of "assholism" which develops after the masses are exposed to generations of ignorant and stupid and insane programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and indoctrination and brainwashing. 

To the question of how I felt after the session: 

On the drive home, the initial feeling which had to be processed was disgust. I had sat with a man who had terrorized a wife (who, like all programmed and conditioned humans, was also very sick); who had traumatized his young daughters in a way that will affect them for their entire existence; and who had murdered his estranged wife in front of those children. Talk about self-absorption. Talk about concerned only with self. So, yes, disgust. 

Then I saw how the causes behind his actions are repeated and magnified thousands of times and hundreds of thousands of times and millions of times a day all around the globe, to lesser or greater degrees. I flashed back to how many of the five thousand teens I had worked with over the years were kind and how many were mean and how many had been traumatized by parents who were self-absorbed, negligent, narcissistic, unavailable, and who have passed along their own attachment disorders to another generation. 

I saw how many parents were passing on a sense of inferiority to some of their children and how many more were passing down a sense of superiority to their children. I saw that many might not be overtly teaching hatred and racism and separation and judgmentalism and duality to their children but who were certainly involved in an act of omission by not un-teaching the hatred and racism and separation and judgmentalism and duality learned by their children who had been taught all of that via acculturation. And I saw the effects of what is being passed down as those who had been bullied at home then came to school and bullied. 

So next, I felt drained, sad, cheerless, sorrowful, and heart-broken about humanity in general because of the widespread misery which they are contributing to and suffering from. 

[And even the feeling of such feelings has drawn criticism from some, those being the ones who do not understand that the so-called "realized" all feel but do not emote. Maharaj was asked if he really even cared about the seekers who came his way. His reply: “More than you will ever know.” So the case is here. Most do not understand "empathy" because it is being wiped out on a global basis, another of the consequences of the Ultimate Sickness.]

But after I processed all of those feelings, I felt moved. I felt motivated more than ever to continue to share the non-dual message regarding the unicity and Real Love and the freedom and peace which can only come if one is relieved of the effects of generations of "ignorant and stupid and insane" programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and indoctrination and brainwashing which always lead to ignorant thoughts and to stupid words and to insane actions.

Shortly after reaching home, my phone rang with a call coming in from a man who had attended a retreat two months earlier. His wife, he informed me, had just told him that she was leaving him. He described how he watched as she drove away with their children. He said that he was trying to apply all that we had discussed to what he was feeling but that he was not doing well at all in that effort: 

"On one hand, I want to jump in the car and race after them and fight to keep my family together; on the other hand, I feel paralyzed and can't move. I'm overwhelmed with all sorts of feelings, or, more likely - as you'd say - emotions. Talk to me." 

Having processed on the drive home from the center all of the feelings which had been generated during a session which I had been obliged to conduct because of a contractual agreement I had with the center where the man called Mark had been for a time (a session of a type which I would no longer conduct nowadays, job or no job) I was prepared to move on, so I said to the caller: 

“I understand. Let me tell you about two encounters I had with two females and see if there might be something in the tale for you to understand and apply: 

“I had spent the night in an Arizona lodge and was preparing to leave for two weeks of hiking in the nearby forest. I had been warned that bears were moving about with their cubs that time of year and could be quite dangerous because their protective instincts were functioning at the highest level possible."

I headed out the next morning for the trailhead and . . . . "

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.
