Local Nonduality, by Jerry KatzAugust 9, 2012
The Local Movement is associated with being a consumer of locally grown food, products, and services. Like all movements, it is a fresh way of looking at the world. It can be applied to anything.
The Local Movement can mean connecting with teachers, guides, and friends. Does it seem strange to anyone to suggest that we can find friends locally? Not if you spend a lot of time in the online world where no doubt you do have one or two close friends youve never met and probably never will.
While it is obvious that friends can be found locally, its not so obvious that sharers of the teachings of nonduality can be found locally. Yet it can be done.
If you are aware of nonduality, chances are there are others in your community who also are. Maybe they dont talk about it. Maybe theyre not occupying the same online spaces as you are. But they are in your city or town.
Youd be amazed.
My suggestion, if you want to connect, is to put out some ads inviting people to a nonduality meeting. You wont get a lot of people. Maybe two or three.
Youll get a few more if you set up a Meetup through meetup.com, but it costs a few bucks to be hosted by meetup.com. The full price is $72 every 6 months. Your first year is half price.
Our Nova Scotia meetup site is at nonduality.ca.
When you do meet, keep the videos of famous teachers at home. Talk with each other. You may want to come up with a theme and a quote from a famous teacher, but you dont need more than that to get started.
Have the confidence to eschew affiliation. It doesnt have to be an Eckhart Tolle group or anything like that. Just people.
This is local nonduality. Water and feed it and give it some sun and let it grow in whatever way it will.
Good luck.Hi, I have few Little Booklets about Rammana Maharshi for sale on Ebay - they include a lot of non dual teachings, including some articles by Douglas Harding.
Please pass to anyone who might be interested!
