      Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3086, Sunday, February 24, 2008

      Our true nature is
      In highest truth,

      Void, silent, pure;
      It is glorious and mysterious.

      It is peaceful joy -
      And that is all.

      Enter deeply into it.

      Huong Po, posted to MysticSpirit

      This time i must confess
      I feel a total hate for myself.
      While crowded and swarmed,
      my heart wishes to be a single self.

      Seeking that single pearl,
      I crave to dive deep into this sea,
      but fear of murderous waves
      makes me beg for your help my friends.

      Scattered with so much going on inside,
      I long for nothing but an inner unity.
      Duality must be abandoned
      if you seek to drink the soul of unity.

      You must bet and lose
      everything you've ever owned
      if you truly desire
      to become one with your beloved.

      Listen to the secret sound
      of the revelation. Now,
      when your quest aspires the skies,
      fly away from this lowly Earth.

      My heavenly soul,
      who only nests in the heights,
      is tired of its house on earth.
      It wants to abandon the body.
      It wants to take the final flight.

      - Rumi, Ghazal 3210, translation by Nader Khalili, from Rumi, Fountain of Fire, posted to Sunlight


      It doesn't interest me if there is one God
      or many gods.
      I want to know if you belong or feel
      if you know despair or can see it in others.
      I want to know if you are prepared to live in the world
      with its harsh need
      to change you, if you can look back
      with firm eyes
      saying this is where I stand. I want to know
      if you know
      how to melt into that fierce heat of living
      falling toward
      the center of your longing. I want to know
      if you are willing
      to live, day by day, with the consequence of love
      and the bitter
      unwanted passion of your sure defeat.

      I have been told; in that fierce embrace, even
      the gods speak of God.

      - David Whyte from Fire in the Earth

      Love Said to Me

      I worship the moon.
      Tell me of the soft glow of a
      candle light
      and the sweetness of my moon.

      Don't talk about sorrow,
      tell me of that treasure,
      hidden if it is to you,
      then just remain silent.

      Last night
      I lost my grip on reality
      and welcomed insanity.
      saw me and said,
      I showed up.
      Wipe your tears
      and be silent.

      I said, O Love
      I am frightened,
      but it's not you.
      Love said to me,
      there is nothing that is not me,
      be silent.

      I will whisper secrets in your ear
      just nod yes
      and be silent.

      A soul moon
      appeared in the path of my heart.
      How precious is this journey.

      I said, O Love
      what kind of moon is this?
      Love said to me,
      this is not for you to question.
      Be silent.

      I said, O Love,
      what kind of face is this,
      angelic, or human?
      Love said to me,
      this is beyond anything that you know.
      Be silent.

      I said, please reveal this to me
      I am dying in anticipation.
      Love said to me,
      that is where I want you:
      Always on the edge.
      Be silent.
      You dwell in this hall of
      images and illusions.
      Leave this house now,
      and be silent.

      I said, O Love,
      tell me this:
      Does the Lord know you are
      treating me this way?
      Love said to me,
      yes He does.
      Just be totally...
      totally... silent

      - Rumi


      searching, wanting, controlling, needing, doubting, praying, keeping, dreaming, desiring, manipulating, forcing, grasping, fearing, using, wasting, lying, seeking, moving, believing, holding, imagining and thinking.

      Whatever is left, when you stop, is who you are. It is silence, pure, real, unnamed, gentle, loving and filled with serenity. In this and from this is joy and freedom.

      If you do this right now, I promise you with all my heart, you will be home.

      That is where I am calling you.

      Please come home.
