The Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlightsQuestions only satisfy the mind and the intellect. They do not help one to
awaken. It is only when everything is dropped, that you begin to awaken and
see the futility of questions.~Robert AdamsIn this valley, love is represented by fire, and reason by smoke. When love
comes, reason disappears. Reason cannot live with the folly of love; love has
nothing to do with human reason. If you possessed inner sight, the atoms of the
visible world would be manifested to you. But if you look at things with the
eye of ordinary reason you will never understand how necessary it is to love.
Only a man who has been tested and is free can feel this. He who understands
this journey should have a thousand hearts so that he can sacrifice one at
every moment.~AttârLove makes the world less worldly, less dense, more transparent to the divine
dimension, the light of consciousness itself.
~Eckhart TolleQuestion: "Brahman is real. The world is illusion" Yet others say, "The world
is reality." Which is true?Sri Ramana Maharshi: Both statements are true. They refer to different
stages of development and are spoken from different points of view. The
aspirant starts with the definition, that which is real exists always. Then he
eliminates the world as unreal because it is changing. The seeker ultimately
reaches the Self and there finds unity as the prevailing note. Then, that which
was originally rejected as being unreal is found to be a part of the unity.
Being absorbed in the reality, the world also is real. There is only being in
Self-realisation, and nothing but being.Question: Sri Bhagavan (Ramana Maharshi) often says that Maya (illusion) and
reality are the same. How can that be?Sri Ramana Maharshi: 1. Brahman is real, 2. The universe is unreal, and 3. The
universe is Brahman.If you see the illusion you are enlightened, but if you think that you are
enlightened you are in the illusion!
~ PapajiHow do you let go of attachment to things? Don’t even try. It’s impossible.
Attachment to things drops away by itself when you no longer seek to find
yourself in them.
~ Eckhart Tollephoto by Alan LarusBe"There is a reality even prior to heaven and earth;
Indeed, it has no form, much less a name;
Eyes fail to see it;
It has no voice for ears to detect;
To call it Mind or Buddha violates its nature,
For it then becomes like a visionary flower in the air;
It is not Mind, nor Buddha;
Absolutely quiet, and yet illuminating in a mysterious way,
It allows itself to be perceived only by the clear-eyed."~Daio KokushiWho Am I?Feel your reality,
In the stillness,
In the quietness,
When there is no mind,
No thoughts, no words.Who are you then?
You just are.I AM. I AM.
I am not this.
I am not that.
I AM.I am That which has always been.
I am That which will always be.I AM THAT I AM.~Robert Adams
