      Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3106, Saturday, February March 15, 2007

      The disease is simple and the remedy equally simple. It is your mind only that makes you insecure and unhappy. Anticipation makes you insecure, memory - unhappy. Stop misusing your mind and all will be well with you. You need not set it right - it will set itself right, as soon as you give up all concern with the past and the future and live entirely in the now.

      - Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to ANetofJewels

      Take the first step in faith.
      You don't have to see the whole staircase;
      just take the first step.

      - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., posted to The_Now2

      When a person is at peace, they ought to be as alert as if they were in trouble; so they can forestall an unforeseen contingency. And when they are in trouble, they ought to be as calm as it they were at peace; thus they can bring to an end this crisis.

      - Hung Ying-ming, from A Chinese Garden of Serenity, Reflections of a Zen Buddhist Monk,, posted to DailyDharma.

      The Buddha compares his teaching to the rainfall that descends without discrimination on the earth. That this rain causes some seeds to grow into flowers and some into great trees implies no differentiation in the rain but rather is due to the capacities of the seeds that it nurtures. Thus, the teaching of the Buddha is of a single flavor but benefits beings in a variety of ways according to their capacity.

      Awareness cleaned my mind
      to a polished mirroring.

      The presence came near, and I knew
      that That was everything,
      and I nothing.

      - Lalla, version by Coleman Barks, from Naked Song, posted to AlongTheWay

      God comes when the ego goes.
      When you are nowhere,
      He alone is everywhere.
      He takes the position of your personality.
      You vanish, and
      He comes in, not before that.

      - Swami Krishnananda, posted to Distillation

      I am here, this moment, inside the beauty,
      the gift God has given -
      our love:

      this gold and circular sign
      means we are free of any duty:

      out of eternity
      I turn my face to you, and into
      eternity -

      we have been in
      love that long.

      - Rumi, Ghazal (Ode) 2325, version by Coleman Barks, with Nevit Ergin, The Glance, posted to Sunlight
