      The Nonduality Highlights -
      "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous."
       — Aristotle

      Everything that is in the heavens,
      on the earth and under the earth
      is penetrated with connectedness,
      is penetrated with relatedness."
      ~Hildegard of Bingen

      Teaching Dharma
      The sparrow feeding among tall grasses,
      Is in no way inferior to old Shakiamuni:
      Its unexcelled grasp of perfect Dharma
      Evident in every chirp, and every peck.
      ~Pete Sierra


      The Decisive Experience
      With your conduct unpredictable,
      you make the final leap into awareness
      without the slightest basis for determining
      what is spiritual or not - this bare state with
      no reference point is beyond the cage of philosophy.
      Whether eating, moving around, lying down
      or sitting, day and night you rest in infinite evenness -
      you experience the true nature of phenomena
      as their equalness.
      There are no gods to worship, no demons to exorcise,
      nothing to cultivate in meditation - this is the completely
      "ordinary" state.
      With this single state of evenness, there is openness,
      a relaxed and unstructured openness.
      How delightful - things are timelessly ensured without
      having to be done, and being free of effort and
      achievement, you are content.
      via Daily Dharma by Amrita Nadi

      A whole new freshman class
      of leaves has arrived
      on the dark twisted branches
      we call our woods, turning
      green now—color of
      anticipation. In my 76th year,
      I know what time and weather
      will do to every leaf.
      But the camellia swells
      to ivory at the window,
      and the bleeding heart bleeds
      only beauty.

      The liberating truth is not static; it is alive. It cannot be put into concepts
      and be understood by the mind. The truth lies beyond all forms of
      conceptual fundamentalism. What you are is the beyond—awake and
      present, here and now already. To be here, all you have to do is let go of
      who you think you are. That’s all! And then you realize, "I’m here." Here is
      where thoughts aren’t believed. Every time you come here, you are
      nothing. Radiantly nothing. Absolutely and eternally zero. Emptiness that is
      awake. Emptiness that is full. Emptiness that is everything.....'
