Nondual Highlights Issue #2313, Saturday, November 12, 2005, Editor: Mark

When the mirror of my consciousness became clear,
I saw that my family and others I
love are the same as me.

The "you" and "I" thought
does not occur.
The entire world is God.

- Lalla, from "Naked Song", version by Coleman Barks, posted to AlongTheWay

Sri Bhagavan read out, from the Parbuddha Bharata, Kabir's saying
that ... you know the drop merges into the ocean but few know that the
ocean merges into the drop. This is para bhakta, said he.

-from "Talks With Ramana Maharshi," posted to MillionPaths

Clarity and love are naturally present.

They are the nature of Consciousness.

It is not you who impart them.

-Nisargadatta, posted to MillionPaths

... Realize the strength within you

... bring it forward

so that everything you do

may not be your 'own' doing

but the doing of that 'truth' within you...

What can all the powers in the world

do to that which is 'within' you

that immortal

that unborn and undying one

whom the sword cannot pierce

whom the fire cannot burn?

What is there that you can fear

when you are conscious of

'who' is within you?

- Aurobindo, posted to Poetic_Mysticism

Understand, perceive O beloved mind

How can you slumber and be a Lover?

Having received, then share it all!

Or would you rather lose it possessing?

If crumbs be all that you have to fare,

Does it matter if it is salt-less or tasty?

When eyes are loaded with deep sleep,

What is then the pillow and bedding?

Says Kabir; such is the path of Love.

Why lose heart having committed yourself?

- Kabir
