      The Nondual Highlights
       
       
       
      Sell cleverness and buy wonderment:
      cleverness is opinion, wonder is vision.

      Everything is That lost in That


      There is no "You" or "I," no object
      to contemplate, no contemplation!
      Everything is That lost in That.

      The blind theologians didn't understand.
      Then they saw, and their seven levels
      of attainment dissolved to nothing.

      When you demand nothing of the world,
      nor of God, when you want nothing, seek
      nothing, expect nothing then the Supreme
      State will come to you uninvited and
      unexpected.

      Self is always Present, Bliss is always Present.
      You are not to work at attaining it,
      just remove the obstacles by which you can't see it.
      The hindrance is only one: Attachment to the past.

      "Memory is the one thing that creates the whole world,  and
      memory is the last link that connects one with the phenomenal
      world.  If memory is understood to be nothing but a thought, 
      which in turn is nothing but pure Consciousness – the Self –
      then memory,  and the world with it, is merged into the Self."

      "Not that only, but the co-existence,
      Or say that the end precedes the beginning,
      And the end and the beginning were always there
      Before the beginning and after the end.
      And all is always now."

      "If one remains unable to abide in the unconditioned nature
      just as it is, and therefore develops attachment for mere
      intellectual understanding and experience, one should know
      that this attachment opens the door to demons".  p.90

      “How did that original creation take place of the body as
      infant? And even prior to its birth: How did the conception
      happen? How did the infant come into being, without it asking
      for it? Understand that. Understand thoroughly that drop of
      stuff which eventually has developed into a body, and then you
      will understand the whole mystery that you are not that. This
      body that is now occupying a certain space, how much space did
      it occupy upon its conception? And what was it then? If you
      understand that, you will understand the mystery of the Self.”

      The Wisdom of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


      "Any person, any embodied person, with that knowledge "I am,"
      carries on his activities in the world with the shackles of name
      only. If he had no name, it would not be possible to carry on
      with the activities. In that inner core, that Knowingness or
      "I-am-ness," there are no shackles. Once it is understood that
      "I am" is purely "I am," formless--and not that shackled body
      form--then no liberation is called for. To be stabilized in that
      Beingness, which has no name and form, that itself is liberation."
