Nondual Highlights  

Please tell everyone about the Highlights. Pass them this link:    

Answer: James Brown, Yosy Flug, and the Southwind Drum and Bugle Corps.  

Question: What's in today's nondual highlights?    

    When the stethoscope was placed upon her belly, this is what was heard. This mp3 is dedicated to all soon-to-be mothers, at least one of whom is a Highlights reader. I bet you my nonduality salon t-shirt won't be able to sit still or listen to this track only once.

I love this book of poetry from longtime Nonduality Saloner Yosy Flug. It's full of surrender and love. Here are a couple of the poems:  

Ever since

ever since
your grace removed
my heart's
hard shell of "me."
all my eyes behold
wherever and whenever
everyone I face

~ ~ ~

Even before
we emerged
into this world
of land and sky
we all
were divers
effortlessly floating
weightless and dreaming
in safety
of all-pervading waters
protected well
beating heart.

and then
fighting for breath
we died as fish
into this world
of weight
and sorrow.
people call
this death

one day
I shall return
to my great
mother's womb,
some will say
he drowned
and died
but I
I shall be home

~ ~ ~


streaming I follow
the fisherman's boat
competing with my kin
for the net's

o seagull of my heart,
better soar alone
on the storm's wings
and die from hunger
for the beloved.

Nonduality's breaking out everywhere  

Hi Jerry

Hope you're well.  Your feature in the Highlights the other day about non-duality in the mainstream reminded me of this local news article featured in the Enid News from last Summer. Maybe you saw it?  If not, here is the link.  As far as I can tell this is some sort of marching band and one of their performances is based on a quotation from Francis Lucille (read carefully, it's near the end).  This has to be a first, but why not? how lovely...!

• Southwind will be staying at Waller Junior High School. Their repertoire is “Duality,” a program inspired by Francis Lucille’s quote, “Enlightenment is the sudden recognition that non-duality is, has always been, and will always be the reality of our experience. Duality is an illusion."

There are many clips of Southwind on YouTube. The first minute of this clip shows their artistry and looks like a duality/nonduality theme:
