#1172 of the Non-Duality Highlights!
Tuesday, August 20, 2002
Editor - Michael

We often find ourselves faced with a paradox when considering non-duality.

A search of the archives finds these snippets. What did or didn't we say then?

No, I haven't read this yet and I do not know who says what in this daily highlight. But, there it is! :-)

Another Paradox is always being considered by the volunteer editorial staff. Namely, what do we include in the highlights? The early issues were mainly posts taken from the nondualitysalon list. In time they expanded to include other lists and websites. But, that, of course is not the paradox. Nor, is it the copyright and privacy issues involved. We always give credit - or try to.

The Paradox is simply stated (at least by this editor) as - what is nondual? If all is one is the basic understanding. What then isn't one - what could be excluded from the highlights? What should be included?

Have you, gentle reader, ever noticed what we do leave out and include? Personal attacks - phooie, don't need them! Personal stories that bring something gently to the heart - ah yes, how sweet!

Conspiracy theories? - phooie again - hooha!
They just stir people up and keep the mind awhirling.

Same for UFO's and A-scended Masters and folk fom other dimensions. Well, they make for interesting reading, no doubt about that! So do the stories surrounding all the wonderful things those long departed Great Spiritual Beings of antiquity did. Ah the miracles and the cures - oh my!

Nope! What I do to resolve this Paradox is easy. I don't do nothing about it. I just look for what is happening right here and now. Always it is there. AND LOW AND BEHOLD! Your wonderful posts, links, and web sites present themselves with jewels of living and open non-duality.

But! Ah-ha! Where is there time in the day for reading all the stuff posted on all the lists? Nowhere I tell you! So, if you could do me and my fellow editors a small favor? Let the folks on your favorite lists know about the ndhighlights list? Would you? Could you? Por-favor?

If there is a list, link, or site that you think interesting please fell free to contact me and the others - let us know.

Actually please as a favor to me. You see, I am not supposed to start any contests. We could scribble something on an old t-shirt and sneak it in the mail, but that old skinflint who started this list can't stand to part with a penny!

Listen, he is on vacation right now and can't check his email. He's on a plane. So you have just a few hours to make this 'contest' that never happened a success. So please please please help me out. Otherwise...who knows what will happen to me?

Jerry's favorite office poster states: The beatings will continue until moral improves! The Management

Well, enough of that - back to the highlights.


It's Tuesday...time to ponder about the following...

Isn't making a smoking section in a restaurant like making a peeing section in a swimming pool? if the Jacksonville Jaguars are known as the "Jags" and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are known as the "Bucs", what
does that make the Tennessee Titans ?

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea... does that mean that one enjoys it?

If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called Holes?

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a race car not called a racist?
