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.

Today, you’re invited to review the two examples offered recently and see exactly what might be revealed in terms of dualistic thinking vs. non-duality: 

**One man killed his wife because she was separating from him. 

**Another killed nine people in a church because they were black and he favored separation, talking often about “sparking a race war” and “wanting segregation reinstated.” 

+++Some members of a group described that man who shot his wife as “a very spiritual person.” 

+++Dylann Roof was described by his pastor as “a devout Christian who was baptized in the Lutheran faith, went to church camp, and worshiped regularly.” 

***The nine people shot by Roof were also Christians. 

***It was a pro-religious group calling itself “Aryan Nations,” whose messages of hate and white superiority have fueled violent crimes and domestic terrorism for decades, which applauded the actions of Dylann Roof. 

(Only hours after Roof was arrested for shooting nine blacks at a Charleston, South Carolina church, Aryan Nations leader Morris Gulett – an ordained Church of Jesus Christ Christian Pastor - offered praise and urged others to follow Roof’s example: “We had better see much more of this type of activism if we ever expect to see our America return to it’s [sic] rightful place in the world and our children grow up in a clean safe healthy enviroment [sic],” Gulett wrote.

Other racists individually have offered support or praise for Roof in comments posted on a forum hosted by “Stormfront.” “Stormfront was established by members of the anti-black, pro-Christian Ku Klux Klan and has been identified as the world’s largest hate site. As noted yesterday, the KKK was established at the end of the U.S. Civil War in 1865 to carry on the fight against segregation after the Southern confederacy surrendered and the “official” pro-slavery war ended.

I am a member of the Southern Poverty Law Center which documents active hate groups in the U.S. and the growing cases of human rights and civil rights violations as well as cases of people being attacked because their attackers hold dear the same warped belief systems and agendas of the national leaders they support and whose entire agenda endorses duality-based beliefs and separation and hierarchies and white nationalism and xenophobia and discrimination and violence, all endorsed in the effort to advance their cause.

As another example of what is at the core of the fighting and killing in the two cases cited and in cases all around the globe each day, consider the levels of pontification; the calls for rebellion again the U.S. Government; the calls by state government officials for all to refuse to recognize the law passed last Friday by the U.S. Supreme Court; and the calls by some elected officials in the U.S. Government to ignore the law. 

Their objections were based on their “religious beliefs.” The issue: same-sex couples living in 75% of the fifty states in the U.S. could already marry, but those living in the remaining 25% could not. Friday, the Supreme Court gave the same rights to all. 

What is the "non-dualist’s" take on all of that? 

Would Maharaj, or any “non-dualist,” be either pro-same-sex marriage or anti-same-sex-marriage?

Not if truly realized.

Was Maharaj, or is any “non-dualist,” either pro-spirituality or anti-spirituality?


Was Maharaj, or is any “non-dualist,” either pro-religion or anti-religion?


Was it being anti-religious or anti-spirituality which led Maharaj to eventually turn his back on both and start prescribing a psychology / non-dual combination as the Ultimate Medicine?

Well, consider: was Thomas Edison anti-the-first-9999-incandescent-bulb-prototypes he used, or did he turn his back on them for the simple reason that they did not work? 

To clarify, those pointed to with the term “Fully Realized” have reached the state endorsed by Maharaj, a state of “zero-concepts” and zero beliefs. Maharaj recommended being free of the mind completely and stated that he had no mind. If the last belief goes, so too does the mind go. 


“We believe in so many things on hearsay. We believe in distant lands and people, in heavens and hells, in gods and goddesses, because we were told. Similarly, we were told about ourselves, our parents, name, position, duties and so on. We never cared to verify. The way to truth lies through the destruction of the false. To destroy the false, you must question your most inveterate beliefs” 


“Go forth, unburdened with ideas and beliefs.” 

Therefore, there is no one here that can be either pro-gay-marriage or anti-gay-marriage. It’s not an issue. No "realized advaitin" would care who marries, who does not marry, or who marries whom. 

Contrary to the beliefs of some, there can also be no one here to be pro-religion or anti-religion. Religion involves dogma, and dogma is nothing more than a compilation of dreamed up concepts. Nothing about it is real, so nothing about it can be true. One might as well choose sides and be either pro-mirages or anti-mirages. All that the non-dualist has to say about it is, “I invite you to see all mirages as the mirages that they are. 

If you cannot do that, you are suffering from one or more of the traits of the Ultimate Sickness which Maharaj identified as 'ignorance, stupidity and insanity.' Yet if you do not want to differentiate between that which is a mirage and that which is real - or if you do not want to differentiate between the true and the false - so be it." 

Advaitin Douwe Tiemersma wrote: “There are various religions and systems of philosophy which claim to endow human life with meaning. But they suffer from certain inherent limitations. They couch into fine-sounding words their traditional beliefs and ideologies, theological or philosophical. 

"Believers, however, discover the limited range of meaning and applicability of these words, sooner or later. They get disillusioned and tend to abandon the systems, in the same way as scientific theories are abandoned, when they are called in question by too much contradictory empirical data.” 

Was he anti-religion, or was he simply one that was capable of differentiating the false from the true? 

So one pointed to with the term “non-dualist” or with the term “fully realized” is neither “pro” nor “anti” anything. To take a stance "for" or "against" anything would just involve more duality. 

All that Maharaj did - or that any “truly realized non-dual teacher" does - is what any caring, empathetic human would do: if one walking down the street sees a sinkhole and knows that other people are walking a step behind, a caring and empathetic one would stop and point out the sinkhole to those walking behind them so that those persons can also enjoy the same thing that the Realized enjoy at that moment, namely, not falling into a sinkhole. 

Maharaj pointed out the mental sinkholes that people walk toward - or which they have already fallen into - and he offered a way to avoid sinkholes or to escape from the sinkholes which have already been fallen into. 

Was he invested in the way that persons responded when he pointed to what he pointed to? No. Would he become upset and remain upset if persons ignored his pointing toward sinkholes? No. He was not “pro-one-response” and “anti-all-other-responses.” 

He witnessed true and false, he pointed toward the truth, and then he went about his way as all other persons went about their way. 

How could he have been driven even remotely by an agenda or motive or intention when he admitted that, even including those who came to the loft, only 1 out of 100000 would ever realize, later amended to 1 out of 1,000,000 and then later amended to 1 out of 10,000,000? 

Yet he did remain willing to share, no matter the odds. Same here. Pointers are offered, and then seekers are left to draw their own conclusions, or not. 

So what in terms of non-duality can pointed out in the examples given? The process of receiving the Ultimate Medicine involves understanding the Ultimate Sickness and its roots and symptoms. 

So in the examples above, insane actions were rooted in a desire not to separate in one case and in a desire to separate in another, whether the issue was not allowing a woman to separate if she wanted to do so; or whether the issue was wanting races to separate; or whether the issue was wanting people of the same sex to separate rather than marry. All of the examples involved duality-based thoughts and beliefs dealing with separation and who should or should not mix with whom. 

So, in all cases, the illusion of “separate from” was at play. 

In all cases, a sense of different-from-ment and a sense of better-than-ment were at play. 

In all cases, people trapped in dualistic thinking patterns were being driven by beliefs – beliefs about right and wrong. As one non-dualist was heard to say, “The belief that something is 'wrong' is the fire under the ass of humanity.” 

Or “the bug up humanity’s ass.” 

Or “the stick up humanity’s ass.”

So these types of dualistic thoughts and beliefs are now commonplace: 

“It is wrong for you to want to leave me, though I am abusing drugs and you and our children.” 

"It is wrong for whites to have to co-exist alongside blacks.” 

“It is wrong for two people of the same sex to love each other and marry.” 

“It will be wrong if more white people don’t start killing black people.” 

“It is wrong if people are not Christians.” 

“It is wrong if white Christians do not kill black Christians.” 

Do you see that this is not about blacks and whites; or about Christians and non-Christians; or about gays and straights; or about who can marry whom and who cannot; or about right and wrong; or about good and evil; or about Sunnis and Shias; or about “us vs. them"; or about any other dualistic pairings? 

This is about “ignorance and stupidity and insanity,” about seeing “ignorance and stupidity and insanity,” and about turning

Maharaj: “Turn within.” 

Stop looking without for the source of displeasure and misery and suffering. Look within. See all sinkholes. Turn. Then, develop a sense of empathy and the unicity to replace the false sense of separation that is taught via programming, conditioning, acculturation, domestication, brainwashing, and indoctrination. 

Maharaj: “You have to turn away from the world and go within, until the inner and the outer merge and you can go beyond the conditioned, whether inner or outer.” 

See, and then turn away from, the warped programming; from the bizarre conditioning; from all that your culture has taught; from all that your parents and friends and relatives and leaders have taught; from all of the brainwashing you‘ve been exposed to both inside and outside the home; and from all of the indoctrination which you have been exposed to. 

Maharaj: “Why not turn away from the experience to the experiencer and realise the full import of the only true statement you can make: 'I am'?” 

Not “I am a Christian.” Not “I am a white.” Not “He is black.” Not “I am right.” Not “You are wrong.” Not “I am a Super Husband and you must stay with me.” Not "I am a Super Wife but you're not a Super Husband so you're not good enough for me." Not “I am a gay person.” Not “I am a straight person.” Not “I am the one who gets to decide who lives and who dies.” Not “I am a member of a super race.” Not “You are a member of an inferior race.” 

Of course, all of that is just a suggestion, just an invitation, to be accepted . . . or not.

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.
