      Nonduality Highlights: Issue #4332, Sunday August 7, 2011





      While many seekers have heard of the notion of being willing to have their individuality die and are actually ready to do so, most have no idea how. This is not for any lack of intelligence. It is because there is actually nothing one can do to die to the 'small self'! What is needed is an understanding of reality from the most all-inclusive viewpoint. Then, one's apparent individuality becomes enveloped by universality in the same way a seemingly isolated wave merges back into the ocean.

      - James Braha




      Unmitigated Surrender

      The "I" who hoped
      When it heard about enlightenment
      Had no idea.
      Wanting to hold the ocean
      In a cup
      It thought it would possess This
      As a personal asset
      Earned through right thinking.

      Instead it is blissfully unemployed
      Tongue tied and inconsequential
      In a world it never dreamed of.

      What is Here wants expressing
      And cannot be expressed.
      So one writes,
      Hopelessly lost
      And staggered
      At 3 AM
      Amongst the radiance of simple things
      And the incredible full/empty grandeur
      Of being Here
      In This, as This.

      - Alice Gardner




      This is simply what is, as it is. There is no "you" to attain or "get" this. There is only this. The "you" who seems to be separate is imaginary. What solution is needed to an imaginary problem?

      - Joan Tollifson




      The silence remains untouched, unstained, immaculate. Thoughts are only a problem if you are preoccupied with them, giving them your attention, believing in the entity of 'ME' around which the thoughts swirl.

      - Catherine Ingram




      You know, this friend called mind,
      it's in a role.
      It was given to us
      to create identification out of nothing.
      It's such an ancient divine servant.
      The Self took the form of thought
      to help itself play the game.
      So could you bow down to thought
      as an ancient retainer?
      It's the Self in disguise.

      - Pamela Wilson




      Every thought, every feeling, is a visitor. You just say: Welcome. Come in and sit with me.

      - Pamela Wilson
