#4005 - Monday, September 6, 2010 - Editor: Gloria LeeThe Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights"Coming empty-handed, going empty handed -
that is human.
When you are born, where do you come from?
When you die, where do you go?
Life is like a floating clud which appears.
Death is like a floating cloud which disappears.
The floating cloud itself originally does not exist.
Life and death, coming and going, are also like that.
But there is one thing which always remains clear.
It is pure and clear, not depending on life and death.
What, then, is the one pure and clear thing?"
- Zen Master Seung Sahnposted to Daily Dharma by Dainen Kelley
"The valley spirit never dies;
It is the woman, the primal mother.
Her gateway is the root of heaven and earth.
it is like a veil barely seen.
Use it; it will never fail."
Tao Te Ching.
All one can teach is understanding, everything else comes by itself .

Awareness Watching AwarenessSymmetry / Distortionsby Craig Royal52 photosSomeone may be able to speak beautifully about compassion, wisdom, or non-self,but this doesnt necessarily help others. And the speaker may still have a big self ortreat others badly; his eloquent speech may be only empty words. We can get tiredof all these words, even the word Buddha. So to wake people up,Master Linji [Japanese, Rinzai] invented new terms and new ways of saying thingsthat would respond to the needs of his time. For example, Master Linji inventedthe term businessless person, the person who has nowhere to go and nothing to do.This was his ideal example of what a person could be.
