      Nonduality Highlights: Issue #4405, Sunday, October 23, 2011





      What people expect to happen is always different from what actually happens. From this comes great disappointment; this is the way the world works.

      The role of destiny unfolds itself and actualizes the inevitable. You cannot change the course of events, but you an change your attitude and what really matters is the attitude and not the bare event.

      - Nisargadatta Maharaj, from I Am That: Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to AlongTheWay




      M: . Use the mind to investigate the manifested. Be like the chick that pecks at the shell. Speculating about life outside the shell would have been of little use to it, but pecking at the shell breaks the shell from within and liberates the chick. Similarly, break the mind from within by investigation and exposure of its contradictions and absurdities.

      Q: The longing to break the shell, where does it come from?

      M: From the unmanifested.

      Profound and tranquil, free from complexity, uncompounded luminous clarity, beyond the mind of conceptual ideas; this is the depth of the mind of the Victorious Ones. In this there is not a thing to be removed, nor anything that needs to be added. It is merely the immaculate looking naturally at itself..

      - Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche, posted to DailyDharma.




      Words and the workings of the mind are, at best, limited tools pointing toward an Infinite Reality which ultimately defies expression - except through Life itself.

      - Metta Zetty




      In the vast expanse of time and space,
      it is only the mind that moves.
      You do not.
      There is nothing
      you need to do or achieve
      above and beyond
      who/what you already are.

      Reality is not separate from
      or other than
      who/what you already are.

      Full acceptance of Reality,
      exactly as it is,
      embraces everything -
      including your desire for change.

      True freedom from desire
      includes even freedom from
      the desire to be desireless.

      - Metta Zetty




      Though your life has almost passed, this present moment is its root:
      if it lacks moisture, water it with repentance.
      Give the Living Water to the root of your life,
      so that the tree of your life may flourish.
      By this Water past mistakes are redeemed.
      By this Water last year's poison is made sweet.

      - Rumi, Mathnawi V: 2222-2224, version by Camille and Kabir Helminski, from Rumi: Jewels of Remembrance, posted to Sunlight
