The Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights/
Here are two brief YouTube videos from Nova Scotia teacher James Traverse:
Nonduality is beyond the measure of the 'thinking' mind; it can only truly be understood experientially when the thinking mind is silent. ~ James Traverse
All the pointers of Nonduality and all sages in one way or another direct you to 'Know Thyself'. This video shows the distinction between the 'knowing' of the thinking mind and another way of 'knowing' whereby the direction of the sages may be realized. ~ James Traverse

It scares the hell.....
What are we without our story?
Without a story what becomes most obvious?:
Life is empty, plain, simple.
Simply perceptions noticed by no one.
And it scares the hell out of most of us.
Emptiness swallowing up the story of a me.
What is left of this figure, this person with
a history, a future, a personality?:
Nothing at all,
Nothing at all is left.
Its as if a tight fist opening up
Not wanting things to be different.
And noticing that without a story
Life just is..
In this Isness of Life
without the story, meaning without the person,
there is no separation between perceptions and the perceiver.
Full Empty perceiving going on,
By no one..
No two things
Have you noticed how when you move towards something the distance between you and the something gets less and less until there is a point at which you can no longer get any closer because you are touching it?
At that moment, from your point of view it could be said, by you, that there are now two things in contact.
Or it could be said right now, by no one, that nothing has changed and there are no two things.
How easily overlooked is this everyday miracle of the apparently ‘not one’ being experienced as ‘not two’.
It is nothing special but nothing ordinary!
