      Nondual Highlights Issue #2070 Wednesday, March 2, 2004






       .




      Went out for a walk in the fog.
      Things were indistinct, yet spoke
      clearly. Plants were intimate, but
      wet. They dripped with affection
      on the dirt. The soil remained un-
      moved, but receptive. And, in such
      discreet company, I walked along
      feeling eternal, yet nonexistent.

      What can I say! Things are, and they
      are not. And this gives them the
      pungent odor of Eternity. What is
      disappears like a skunk in the fog,
      but the feeling of eternity lingers
      like its persistent smell.

      Ps. it's right in front of your nose,
      but don't try to grab it. Just
      inhale gently, and let it go.

      What is most essential to Buddhism is based on clarifying the mind. If you want your mind to be clear, it is important to put opinions to rest. If opinions are not stopped, then wrong and right are confused; if the mind is not clear, reality and illusion are mixed up. If you stop opinions and clear the mind, then reality and illusion are both empty, wrong and right do not stand.

      When the mind goes out like a monkey bring
      it back again. Again it will go and again bring
      it back. Again it will go and again bring it back.
      Play the game and eventually the mind will stop
      going.

      Whatever you accept completely will take you to peace,
      including the acceptance that you cannot accept,
      that you are in resistance.

      Why can't I destroy my ego?

      To destroy something it must exist.

      Ego is just a phantom, a fictious entity that gets created to go along with a bodymind when needed. And, sometimes there is a need for it ...specially for the protection of a form, a bodymind. The problem comes only when you try to carry it all the time, only when you feel this `need´, `desire´ all the time. Anything arising or ending in a `me´ simply creates this need and acts as its fuel, catalyst. `Wanting´ to destroy ego ...is one way to create it. Let it just be and it dies. It can't exist on its own. It can't exist without a `want´.
