      Nonduality Highlights Issue #4826, Saturday, January 26, 2013





      Rather than
      becoming involved
      with the scene,
      look for the seer.

      - Mooji from Writing on Water, posted to AlongTheWay




      The Core

      Whoever planted this apple orchard hid it in a mist of
      language, though some

      fragrance comes through. Keep your nose subtle and clear
      for that. Coarse companions

      can clog you with mucus, so that you forget what's
      concealed in word-fog.

      Husamuddin's sunlight helps, that which burns in this
      book. There is a being

      named Quzuh, familiar of cloud and rainbow, snow-moon
      and frozen grave mounds.

      Leave Quzuh those coverings. Pierce to the core that the
      seven blue spheres revolve

      around. Venus touches her lute strings to lure out
      essence from this poem.

      Jupiter lays down money. Saturn, even he, bends to kiss
      the hand, "I'm not worthy."

      Mars cuts himself sharpening his sword. Astrologers
      study the stars as they

      die out. Philosophers talk about "thought," but what
      does that mean? Mystical

      poets make metaphors. Sensualists order dessert. Bread
      dissolves in the

      belly. Every face lifts toward light. As minerals move
      in plants, as animals drink

      from the wet grass, Khidr leans to the wisdom spring;
      another being sets down his

      load lightheartedly with the Friend; life never ends.

      - Rumi Mathnawi VI: 84-128, version by Coleman Barks from The Soul of Rumi, posted to Sunlight




      A step toward your own heart
      is a step toward the Beloved.

      In this house of mirrors
      you see a lot of things –
      Rub your eyes.
      Only you exist.

      - Rumi Quatrain 161: version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva from A Garden Beyond Paradise, posted to Sunlight




      THE SKY'S THE LIMIT - Dzogchen/Mahamudra Reminders of our True Nature

      The sky of Clear Light, ultimate reality, pervades everywhere.
      See everything in this indescribable light of reality;
      Not holding intellectual fabrications, look to this immaculate emptiness...

      See the drama, the illusion, the magical creation;
      Not thinking it to be real, look to the face of emptiness;
      Not letting negative thoughts arise,
      Turn to the face of the Great Expanse.

      ~The Seventh Dalai Lama quoted in The Dalai Lama's Secret Temple

      ~And whose face is that, dear?
      The one in the mirror!
      Yes! You are the face of the Great Expanse!
      Next time you shave your face, or wash it, or
      put fancy creams on it... stop for just a second...
      and know... hey! this is the face of Great Emptiness.
      And see how Perfect you are.
