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

While Religion and Science Are Not Always Incompatible, Logic and Reason and Wisdom Make Clear That If a Choice Between The Two Is To Be Made, Only One Choice Is the Sane Option 

Maharaj said that “the cause of all is all,” so when persons try to assign one cause as the cause of any problem, then the real problem will not be understood and the real solution will never be found. Complicating the process of identifying all of the links in a chain of causation and then finding the solution to a problem are the bogus labels which are assigned by those who think that they know the single cause of a problem. 

Here, from the beginning, it was noted that the discussions will deal with the only issues that humans will ever be able to consciously experience and address, namely, current relative issues; thus, current relative issues are discussed in terms of duality and non-duality and then means are offered by which the non-dual understanding can be overlaid on the relative and provide relief from the distortion and delusions and ignorance and insanity and chaos and misery and suffering which are generated by the Ultimate Sickness.

So consider this distortion in regards to the examples being offered: Following the shooting of nine blacks in a South Carolina by a white male named Dylann Roof, Bill O’Reilly (a commentator on the ultra-right-wing, conservative Fox News channel who has since been fired for sexual harassment), said that “white supremacy isn’t a problem in America” and that “black on black crime is the problem.” He went on to claim that the real problem is the “corrosive culture within predominately black neighborhoods” and concluded that “there is not an epidemic of racism in the United States of America.” 

The fact: Since the 11 September 2001 on the World Trade Center, nearly twice as many people have been killed in the U.S. by white supremacists, anti-government fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims. 

The fact: The Southern Poverty Law Center counted 1007 active “hate groups” in the United States in 2012. What was modeled for shooter Dylann Roof in his own state? In South Carolina there are nineteen active organizations which have been identified as “hate groups,” sixteen of which support white supremacist ideology.

(Additionally there are six groups categorized as “neo-Confederate” who advocate for the secession of the South from the rest of the United States as happened when the Southern States started a war against the U.S. in the mid-1800's in order to preserve the right of their white citizens to continue to own slaves). The members of those groups proclaim, as Roof believed, that blacks are the cause of most of the key problems in the U.S. 

The claim by some that whites in the U.S. are neither hateful nor racists notwithstanding, there are organizations which have been identified and self-identified as “hate groups” and there are crimes which have been classed as “hate crimes”; is it possible, however, that those groups and crimes are not ultimately about hate?

Is it possible that racism is not ultimately about racism at all? And is it possible that the solutions being offered as the "right" way to end the problems – more religion and / or more spirituality - are not viable solutions at all? Consider those options in light of the facts surrounding the examples being discussed: 

A man described by the members of a group as being “a very spiritual person” murdered his wife. 

A 21-year old male - Dylann Roof mentioned last week - who killed nine black members of a church was described by his pastor as “a devout Christian” who “worshiped regularly.” 

An ordained Church of Jesus Christ Christian pastor praised Roof for killing the nine blacks and urged other whites to follow the shooter’s example. 

The pro-Christian, anti-black KKK group has killed thousands upon thousands of blacks in its history. (South Carolina members of the KKK will gather in front of the state capitol this month to urge the state government to continue to fly the Confederate flag in front of that building.) 

The members of thirty-nine "hate groups" are self-identified as “Christians”; most of those praising Roof for killing nine blacks in South Carolina self-identify as "Christian"; all around the globe, Muslims are killing Muslims; Christians are killing Muslims; Muslims are killing Christians; Jews are killing Muslims; Muslims in the Far East are killing Hindus; etc., etc., etc. And all of the killing has been going on in many cases for thousands of years. 

Can it really be the case, then (as billions claim) that the problems of humanity are caused by the fact that people still haven’t gotten enough religion or have not become spiritual enough (though 97% claim they are religious and millions more claim that they are spiritual)? Will more of the same finally change humans' warped patterns of thinking and talking and behaving "for the better"? 

What if the persons being discussed had been introduced to the process of “Self-Inquiry” and found their Supreme Self? Would that have changed their behavior? 

To the contrary, what if the solutions identified as the way to end the problems – more religion and / or more spirituality - are not viable solutions at all? Might Maharaj’s realization about those "solutions" have been spot on, the realization which led him to stop using religious versions of the Ultimate Medicine and spiritual versions of the Ultimate Medicine and which eventually led him to focus on humankind's mind problem and its roots and its treatment? Do the facts not invite persons to realize what Maharaj came to understand? 

So, if what is called hate is not ultimately about hate, and if what is called racism is not ultimately about racism at all, what are those - and all relative problems - about? 

They are about dualistic thinking (which is rooted in ignorant and stupid and insane programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and brainwashing and indoctrination); and they are about a belief in hierarchies (a belief rooted in duality) which suggests that some are higher than others and that most are lower than others and that some are better than others and that most are worst than other. 

They are about dualistic talking and writing (which are also rooted in “ignorant and stupid and insane” programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and brainwashing and indoctrination) and it was such writings on the website of the white supremacy “Council of Conservative Citizens” which shooter Dylann Roof in his “manifesto” reports reading. He said that after reading the information on that pro-white, pro-segregation, anti-black website that he was "never the same" after reading “pages upon pages of black on white murders.” 

They are also about what Maharaj called “learned ignorance,” specifically the learned ignorance that is overtly taught in homes or covertly modeled in homes; that is overtly taught in cultures or covertly modeled in cultures.

They are about accepting assigned and assumed personality identifications which are rooted in a dualistic sense of different-from-ment and better-than-ment, resulting in such levels of narcissism and arrogance and false pride that persons being driven by those belief systems develop the God Complex Personality Disorder and thereafter believe that they have the right to judge who is good and who is bad and have the right to determine who should live and who should die. 

What is the difference in Hitler wanting to kill all Jews on one hand and some white supremacists like Roof wanting to kill all blacks on the other hand? None. 

What is the difference in the duality-based beliefs of the Nazis who started a war in which 55,000,000 people died on one hand and Roof wanting to start a race war in which the 45,000,000 blacks in the U.S. would die on the other hand? None. 

What is the difference in those living under the influence of “ignorance and stupidity and insanity” and programming and conditioning and domestication and acculturation and brainwashing and indoctrination on one hand and those being driven by arrogance and conceit and self-importance and narcissism and egotism on the other hand? None. 

And what is the difference in those who believe that the problems of the world are rooted in too little dogma or in the wrong dogma on one hand and those who ignorantly and arrogantly believe on the other hand that the problems of the world are caused by people of a different race; or, are caused by people of a different religion or people with no religion; or, are caused by people who are “religious but not spiritual”; or, are caused because people are doing “self-inquiry” instead of “Self-Inquiry”? None. 

Maharaj made clear in the end that the problems of humanity center in the mind, and he learned by trial and error that neither religion nor spirituality nor "Self-Inquiry" instead of "self-inquiry" can solve a mind problem. The wise, in fact, see how all of those can actually exacerbate the mental problems of humankind.

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.
