      Nonduality Highlights: Issue #4339, Sunday August 14, 2011

      True happiness is uncaused and this cannot disappear for lack of stimulation. It is not the opposite of sorrow, it includes all sorrow and suffering.

      - Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to AlongTheWay

      You have always been one with the Buddha, so do not pretend you can ATTAIN to this oneness by various practices.

      Huang Po, posted to Distillation

      Our mind is like an onion, and each day and month of practice progressively peels away the layers of delusion.

      Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey, posted to Distillation

      Whether you're sitting in a quiet place meditating or walking down the sidewalk, you can turn awareness back to its source. This is where we realize we all meet as one consciousness.

      - Adyashanti, posted to The_Now2

      You are the Perceptual Center
      of all your experience.

      Realize This, and you will discover that
      the universe is contained within
      the light of your own innate
      Natural Awareness, and
      you are not limited by
      who or what
      you imagine yourself to be.

      Remember: you are That which is
      Seeing, Observing and Perceiving...

      - Metta Zetty


      Sunlight touching treetops,
      Birds awakening...
      Morning rises after night
      With a constancy and grace.

      While politics swirl
      Conflicts rage, economies teeter
      Hurricanes roar,
      Morning dawns over all
      Without apology or praise
      But with simple welcoming
      Of all that is lit
      By its presence.

      What kind of love
      Embraces this wild world
      With such a welcome?
      What love is this, that
      Contains such
      Darkness and strife
      When the world
      Refuses to conform
      To our demands for
      Outer peace,
      And then wraps us
      In such wonder
      And grace?

      Fear, war, starvation,
      And so much else
      Are included in the
      Grace of morning light
      On a darkened world.

      In the light's first
      Touch of a leaf
      There is something that
      Embraces all of what we are
      And includes us
      In the full circle
      Of life as it is.
      We see that we are
      Something whole
      And seamless,
      And perfect.

      The heart of each morning
      Offers with outstretched hands,
      An expansion, a release
      Out off our self-made prisons
      Into a world ruled by a love
      That excludes nothing,
      A love we can trust,
      A love at peace
      With all things.

      Even this, and this, and
      Especially and

      - Alice Gardner
