      Through allowing the "isness" of all things,
      a deeper dimension reveals itself to you as an
      abiding presence, an unchanging deep stillness,
      an uncaused joy beyond good and bad. This is
      the joy of Being, the peace of God.

      - Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now, posted to AlongTheWay



      The 'Spiritual Mind'
      Contains the universe.

      In this universe there is
      only
      One pure 'substance' ...

      One absolute and indivisible Truth.
      The notion of 'duality' does not 'exist.'

      The 'finite mind' contains only 'illusions' .
      . of
      separateness - of division.

      It imagines 'myriad' objects
      and defines Truth ..
      in terms of relative opposites.

      Big is defined by small, good by evil,
      pure by defiled, hidden by revealed,
      full by empty.

      What is opposition ?
      It is the arena of hostility -
      of conflict and turmoil.

      Where 'duality' is 'transcended' ...
      peace reigns.

      This is the way of 'manifestation's'
      ultimate Truth.

      When you fall into the water and don't know how to swim,
      you become frightened and say, 'I must not drown, I must not
      drown,' and begin to thrash about with arms and legs and, in your
      anxiety, swallow more water and eventually drown. Whereas if
      you would let go of your thoughts and efforts and allow yourself
      to go down to the bottom, your body would come back to the
      surface on its own. That's spirituality!

      Anthony de Mello, S.J., posted to TrueVision



      Unity is the proper attribute


      The hearty unripe grapes, capable of ripening,
      at last become one in heart
      by the breath of the masters of heart.
      They grow rapidly to grapehood,
      shedding duality and hatred and strife.
      Then in maturity, they rend their skins,
      till they become one:
      unity is the proper attribute
      for one who is one with others.

      - Rumi, Mathnawi II, version by Camille and Kabir Helminski, Rumi: Daylight, posted to Sunlight



      You have always been,
      are now,
      and ever will be one
      with all that is ...

      We are separated only
      until we realize that we are
      not
      'separated' ...

      Rollers lapse into the sea,
      and smoke is carried on the wind
      toward the white clouds.
      In time's field
      seeds shoot and bloom;
      fade and die, reseed ...

      Mind is not dream,
      not tranquil island,
      nor blossom drifting.

      It is the fluid surface of the stream,
      the shifting plane where water,
      shaped by wind, reflects the sky.

      All is full of all ...

      Ripples on one pool,
      each entity enfolds

      'reflections' of One Sun ...
