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 Jamesí 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.

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

    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

    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
