- #4791 - Thursday, December 20, 2012 - Editor: Gloria LeeThe Nonduality Highlights http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights/There is a stillness
simpler than silence
a peace deeper than calm.
There is a shimmering
in the dark soil,shades of trees,
in old moss, and the twisted
forms of branches,
that hold us, carry us
and nurture us.
In the flash of the eye,
laughter, or a tear.
No effort needed, no self to seek,
just grace remains.~Svein Myreng (Plum Poems)via Effortless Peace on Facebook
The world has billions of people
and no two faces alike
I wonder about the reason
behind such variation
and all with similar viewsdebating who is right and wrong
just correct yourself
and stop maligning others~ Shih-te [Pickup]via Zen Poems, Haiku & Writings
Our job is to love others without stopping
to inquire whether or not they are worthy.
That is not our business and,
in fact, it is nobody's business.
What we are asked to do is to love,and this love itself will render both ourselves
and our neighbors worthy, if anything can.~ Thomas Mertonvia Tao & Zen on Facebook
"The more you practice zazen, the more you will be interested in your daily life.
This is to observe your situation accurately, to clear your mind and begin from
your original starting point."~ Shunryu Suzuki, Not Always SoYes, Im truly a dunce
Living among trees and plants.
Please dont question me about illusion and enlightenment
This old fellow just likes to smile to himself.
I wade across streams with bony legs,And carry a bag about in fine spring weather.
Thats my life,
And the world owes me nothing.~ Ryokanvia Zen Poems, Haiku & WritingsOne day, music will take its rightful place
as the true religion of Mankind.~ Inayat Khan
