Nondual Highlights Issue #2342 Wednesday, December 14, 2005, Editor: Mark

The world is imprisoned by its own activity, except when actions are
performed as worship of God.

Desire for the fruits of work must never be your motive in working.

Bhagavad Gita, posted to The_Other_Syntax


You've traveled up ten thousand steps in search of the Dharma.
So many long days in the archives, copying, copying.

The gravity of the Tang and the profundity of the Sung
make heavy baggage.

Here! I've picked you a bunch of wildflowers.
Their meaning is the same
but they're much easier to carry.

- Xu Yun, posted to DailyDharma

Name and form hide Reality: This is the Teaching.
Giving name and form is an obstacle to Freedom because
then the Substratum, Consciousness, cannot be seen.
Call it a statue of a horse and the granite is hidden,
see a ring and you won't see the gold.
Name and form can never leave Consciousness,
as the ring can never leave the gold.
Even space is in this because only Self is.

being unravels across
the scope of awareness

it is the foam upon
the deep sea of silence

- Bill Rishel, posted to AdvaitaToZen

Gently, gently he whispered ..
"Be quiet
the secret cannot be spoken.
It is wrapped
in silence.."

~ Rumi ~
