NonDualitySalon - Hur Hur:
No doubt nonduality
of the Upanishads were highly advanced for that time...even advanced
for our age that most of the West (and the Middle-East where the
organized forms of the semitic monethistic dualism originated) still
has no concept of what nonduality is. Perhaps at this stage of
evolution, most people in the world have the need to worship and need
to have a relationship with a personal god. This "normal" paranoid
mind of "me" and "You" still have some mileage left.
Krishna tells Arjuna to fight. When we look at Krishna as the voice
of totality, the evolution, how we are supposed to be manipulated in
a tribal warfare, it's no secret that Krisha is also whispering the
same inspiring wisdom (???) to the ears of human apes on the other
side...so they can kill each other. Have we really advanced that far
from the days of tribal apes fighthing over territory and power?
Nonduality takes no position. Not even the position that "we have no
position." Human apes kill others mainly because they identify with
the personal, tribal and the personal/tribal god. Are they really
choosing or simply being manipulated by the ancient programs running
in the mind, played like puppets? Once you're awake you simply watch
others kill each other in a dream-like world where they as act if
they're hypnotized, not knowing who they are.
As Ramesh Balsekar says, "the core of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj's
teaching is the knowledge of one's own true identity. This knowledge
is indeed the pivotal point around which moves everything."

Please skim this. It has some good stuff, like: "...while Spain, Scotland, and New Zealand established the 'Axis of Countries That Sometimes Ask Sheep to Wear Lipstick.'"
Please see Author's Note at bottom. Thank you.
SNUBBING, LIBYA, CHINA
SYRIA FORM AXIS OF JUST AS EVIL
Cuba, Sudan, Serbia Form Axis of Somewhat Evil; Other Nations Start Own Clubs
Beijing (SatireWire.com) Bitter after being snubbed for membership in the "Axis of Evil," Libya, China, and Syria today announced they had formed the "Axis of Just as Evil," which they said would be way eviler than that stupid Iran-Iraq-North Korea axis President Bush warned of his State of the Union address.
Axis of Evil members, however, immediately dismissed the new axis as having, for starters, a really dumb name. "Right. They are Just as Evil... in their dreams!" declared North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. "Everybody knows we're the best evils... best at being evil... we're the best."
Diplomats from Syria denied they were jealous over being excluded, although they conceded they did ask if they could join the Axis of Evil.
"They told us it was full," said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
"An Axis can't have more than three countries," explained Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. "This is not my rule, it's tradition. In World War II you had Germany, Italy, and Japan in the evil Axis. So you can only have three. And a secret handshake. Ours is wicked cool."

Thank you all for bringing
forth and delivering these highlights with beauty and
grace. It's easy for me to forget that something delivered
anonymously actually comes from sentient beings who care about
its content and form. I don't always disagree with what
shows up but I'm never disappointed -- much like life
Dear David, Thank you for your kind words. We never know what is going to show up either. It's all some kind of miracle, we think. michael and friends
