The Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlightsThere shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.
~Celia Leighton ThaxterIt is a great relief to realize that in this undivided happening, there is no
perfection apart from the imperfection, that the light and the dark arise
together like the crest and trough of the wave, that they cannot be pulled
apart, and to appreciate the holiness of everything, exactly as it is, warts and
all. The firm conviction that I know what’s best for the universe seems
thankfully to be evaporating. And when it does show up, it has more of an
endearing quality – oh look, there goes Joan doing her little dance of concern
again.From Joan Toliffson's forthcoming book 'Nothing to Grasp'.
For publication this summer by Non-Duality Press.Let your actions be like clouds going by; the clouds going by are mindless.
Let your stillness be as the valley spirit; the valley spirit is undying.
When action accompanies stillness and stillness combines with action,
then the duality of action and stillness no longer arises.
~Pei-chienvia Tony Cartledgephoto by Alan LarusA Place of Refuge"Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in
us, not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard
withdrawal. The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of
acceptance of someone as they are. We are all hungry for this other silence.
It is hard to find. In its presence we can remember something beyond the
moment, a strength on which to build a life. Silence is a place of great power
and healing."~Rachel Naomi Remenfromvia Daily Dharma
photo by Alan LarusReally there is nothing to understand. Being what you really are is happening;
that can not be stopped or started. What you are is beyond all of this.
Nothing to work out any more perhaps; let the fragrance of what you are
arise and dissolve any tendency to imagine you are other than the essence of
all that IS.
