The Nonduality Highlights http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights/Our notions about happiness entrap us. We forget that they are just ideas. Our
idea of happiness can prevent us from actually being happy. We fail to see the
opportunity for joy that is right in front of us when we are caught in a belief
that happiness should take a particular form.~ Thich Nhat Hanh"Joy does not come from what you do, it flows into what you do
and thus into this world from deep within you."via "Oneness With All Life"Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places
where other people see nothing.~ Camille Pissaro
via Quotes from the Mystics on FacebookListen to this:
There is nothing that can interfere in your freedom.
There is no thing that can avoid your awakening.
There is nothing that can stop you.
For you are already that, be aware of this!
You are already free.
You are already bright and shining and all is well.~ Robert Adams (Totally Free - October 27, 1991)
You are always Free, but your attention is somewhere else. Just return your
attention to your Self and away from impermanent objects. What you are is
always HERE.~ Sri H. W. L. Poonja (Papaji)
A traveller should just be on the way, why count the number of steps to get there !via Facebook
"Once at Tassajara, Shunryu Suzuki-roshi said, 'Life is basically impossible.'
Then he got up and left the zendo.The next day a student raised his hand and asked, 'Suzuki Roshi, yesterday you
said that life is basically impossible. What are we going to do?''You do it....everyday.'"~ From a Facebook posting of Belle Haywood
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT -
Mahamudra/Dzogchen Reminders of our True Nature"A single lamp dispels the darkness of a thousand aeons;
Likewise, a single flash of the mind's clear light
Erases aeons of karmic conditioning and spiritual blindness."~ Tilopa's Mahamudra Instructions to Naropa, translated by Keith Dowman(Photo of witch's broom nebula and trillions and trillions of stars with trillions
of planets near them just like our sun and earth where we think we are so unique)via Amrita Nadi on Facebook100 Butterflies (excerpt)Where you are going
and the place you stay
come to the same thing.
What you long for
and what you've left behind
are as useless as your name.
Just one time, walk out
into the field and look
at that towering oak --
an acorn still beating at its heart.
~ Peter Levitt
