Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlightsbeyond truth, beyond logicIt does nothing, yet it has fashioned the universe. Sustainingthe entire universe, it does nothing at all. All substances arenon-different from it, yet it is not a substance; though it isnon-substantial it pervades all substances.
The cosmos is its body, yet it has no body... that infinite
consciousness is and is not. It is even what it is not. All these
statements about what is and what is not are based on logic,and the infinite consciousness goes beyond truth, beyond logic.

English version by W. S. Merwin
The water that can't be muddied
with any stick
is deeper than depth
The sky and the water
are a single
If you really want to find
the source of the Sixth Patriarch's
don't look for it
on the one bank or the other
or in the middle of the stream

Fear not what is not real, never was and never will be.
What is real, always was and cannot be destroyed.~ The Bhagavad Gita
When one can see eternity in things that pass away
and infinity in finite things,
then one has pure knowledge.
~ The Bhagavad Gita
Notice how each particle moves.
Notice how everyone has just arrived here
from a journey.
Notice how each wants a different food.
Notice how the stars vanish as the sun comes up,
and how all streams stream toward the ocean.
Look at the chefs preparing special plates
for everyone, according to what they need.
Look at this cup that can hold the ocean.
Look at those who see the face.
Look through Sham's eyes
into the water that is
