Nonduality: The Varieties of Expression


Starting February 1, 2018, Nonduality.com will operated by James Traverse.

James Traverse has over 40 years of experience in the art and science of yoga. He is a yoga educator and writer who communicates the direct approach to understanding your true nature. This experiential means, which is founded on a switchover from conceiving to purely perceiving, flowered principally out of James’ studies with his teacher, Jean Klein, who initiated him in the ways of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Shaivism. His other influences include the works of J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Rumi, Adi Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Atmananda Krishnamenon and the yoga of B K S Iyengar, whose method he studied intensely for the first 15 years of his yoga journey.

Here are some works by renowned Irish poet Gabriel Rosenstock.

 

 


 

 

 

 

as foraois m’aigne a tháinig tú

 

theith scáileanna

 

ina n-uaill

 

 

 

from the forest of my mind you came

 

shadows fled

 

wailing

 

 

 

               gabriel rosenstock

 

 


 

 

 

Look, everything transforms again

 

Into something else.

 

Seeing is believing ?

 


What do you see?    What do you believe?

 

Everything transforming

 

into something else.

 

 

Solidity?   Never!

 

 

A tree has its singing sap,

 

Roots, trunk and leaves,

 

Its shape spells fragrant permanence

 

 

 

Before the sap changes its tune

 

Into paroxysms of blossoming.

 

 

 

The fall of leaves, wind among leaves…

 


You wish to know God?

 

 

God  is the very corruption of leaves,

 

The dark sacrifice before Spring

Excerpts from "I Met a Man," by Gabriel Rosenstock

 

I met a man from North Cape

His hair was wild, his mouth agape:

At four in the morning he'd peel a grape --

I have that eerie sound on tape

 

 

~ ~ ~

 

I met a man from Ballinamuck

And all he had in the world was a duck;

One night it drowned -- what rotten luck!

That duckless man from Ballinamuck

 

~ ~ ~

 

I met a man from John O' Groats

Wearing forty overcoats.

'Stay warm!' he muttered, 'Eat your oats!'

   How he gloats.

 

~ ~ ~

 

I met a man from Kara-Kum,

A dosser, a hobo, a flea-bitten bum.

What did he sell for some chewing gum?

   His mum

 

~ ~ ~

 

I met a man from Wolf Creek,

I said, 'How do?' He said, 'Don't speak!

Abide in silence -- for one week

  Shut the beak!'
