Nonduality Highlights: Issue #4536, Saturday, March 10, 2011
Bliss is Eternal,
even though it appears to arise when the mind dies.
Bliss is not an experience, it is your nature.
This is the Heart of the Wise.
This Gift is always calling to everyone,
"You are seated in the Heart of all Beings."
This is the Truth: Your face shines.
- Papaji, from The Truth Is, posted to AlongTheWay
There is no imperfection anywhere:
perfect in one, perfect in two, perfect in all,
life is blissfully easy.
..... Abiding here, doing nothing,
embodied as man or god,
our dynamic is buddha-reality;
here sentient beings are cared for,
and without any exertion we live in ease.
- Longchenpa, translated by Ketih Dowman
That here, darlin's is here - now, you!
so stop all that doing, eh?
and know all is perfect just as it is..
just keep your medlin' mind off it.
There is nothing to do..
let it all go..
cut the load on your donkey back..
ker-plop! all your cares, your worries,
your gotta do's, fall..
and you do not,
you do not..
have to pick them up again..
this is the message of Dzogchen..
of the 16th Karmapa,
of all the great masters..
cause nothing happens..
but if you "have" to do something, ok

GONE SO FAR
Overlooking the ocean
we do our best to take it in
You can't just make this stuff up
Pictures don't do it justice
How sweet it is to do nothing
Unlike soothing reassuring beauty
the sublime strikes us with an awe
that borders on terror
Nature never betrays the heart that
loves it exactly as it comes
Every moment is its own eternity
because there's no indication
of any of this not lasting forever
Our reality here is an instant wide
beyond that it's bits & pieces
Some people say the whole
blooming planet is wild with life
& I believe it's true
Wherever we've gone so far
we've been in the midst of other lives
I've yet to determine if this view
is more beautiful than sublime:
This rocky coast with all its crashes
No matter how hard I look
I'm still only looking
- Steve Toth, posted to allspirit
Bliss is recognizing the absolute completeness
and perfection of the universe, as it is,
within the Infinite Present.
- Metta Zetty
God is all Bliss.
God wants me to think
Of only one thing:
Bliss, abundant bliss,
Infinite bliss -
And forget the rest
A life of aspiration
Is a life of bliss.
To make oneself
An object of total dedication
Is the highest form
- Sri Chinmoy
