The Nondual Highlights    

    "Learn the difference between thinking and awareness.
Thinking connects with the past, with memory, and works by opposites,
such as good and bad, you and I. It is rightly used in everyday
matters, such as cooking. It is wrongly used when one tries to gain a
self-identity, like labeling oneself a success or a failure.

Awareness is an impartial observation of the whole of life. It does
not proceed from a sense of individuality; it is the whole tree, not
just branches which are opposed to roots. Awareness is sanity, peace.

Would you like something to challenge and strengthen your mental
forces? At the next disappointing event, reflect, 'This is also just
as much a part of life as what I label a favorable event. As a whole
person, I see both sides equally; I do not split events into good and
bad. Being whole, I see the whole.' Do this, even if you don't
understand it, for it contains a tremendous secret."

~ Vernon Howard

From the book: Esoteric Mind Power
published by New Life Foundation   --from Daily Dharma

    One millionth of one percent false is completely false. Everything in duality is false -- false as in not true, not true as in bullshit. There are not exceptions. Black and white, no shades of gray. Truth is one, is non-dual, is infinite, is one-without-other. Truth is dissolution, no-self, unity. There's nothing to say about it, nothing to feel about it, nothing to know about it. You are true or you're a lie, as in ego-bound, as in dual, as in asleep.  

--Jed McKenna in Spiritual Enlightenment, The Damnedest Thing    

    Love is natural. Console your mind and make
it listen. Love all or it is not love. Make your
mind love this way and you will see the magic
of this everyday.

- Papaji

"The Truth Is"
Sri H.W.L. Poonja
Yudhishtara, 1995
  from Along the Way    

    I lit up a cigarette, buttoned my coat up, and began walking down the long straight highway. After twenty minutes I remembered the pack of cigarettes. I lit another. It was that easy.   --Jerry
