One: Essential Writings on Nonduality http://nonduality.com/one.htm
Today we are going tubing for some fantastic music and videos, so hang on. Or keep this one for when you have some time, truly all are very worthwhile. (In case you are new to this, you can make the video full screen by clicking on the small square in bottom right hand corner of video.)
You are truth from foot to brow.
Now what else would you like to know? -- Rumi, from 365
Nirvana, Here and Now by Josh Baran
With some realization comes imperceptibly,
but somehow they need convincing. They have changed, but
they do not notice it. Such non-spectacular cases are often
the most reliable.

Since the seed does not contain anything
other than the seed, even the flowers and the fruits are of the
same nature as the seed: the substance of the seed is the
substance of subsequent effects, too. Even so, the homogenous
mass of cosmic consciousness does not give rise to anything other
than what it is in essence. When this truth is realized, duality

The Choral Symphony, including "Ode to Joy," was Ludwig van Beethoven's ninth and final symphony. When it
premiered in Vienna on this date in 1824, Beethoven himself
co-conducted the orchestra and chorus. He was already deaf by
this time, and witnesses to the event reported that Beethoven
apparently several measures behind the performance
continued conducting the piece even after it was completed, not
stopping until a singer turned him around so he could see the
audience on its feet, thunderously applauding.
Quote: "Everything will pass and the world will perish, but the Ninth Symphony will remain."

The understanding that everything is
illusive is not the final
one. It is an essential stage but only a stage. Ultimately you will
understand that the form and separateness of a thing are illusory, but
the thing-in-itself is not. That out of which these forms appear is
not different from them, hence Reality is one and the same in all
things. This is the paradox of life and a sharp mind is needed to
perceive it. However, to bring beginners out of their earthly
attachments, we have to teach first the illusoriness of the world, and
then raise them to a higher level of understanding and show that the
world is not apart from the Real. That Thou Art unifies everything in
essence. But this final realization cannot be got by stilling the
mind, only by awakening it into full vigour again after yogic peace
has been attained and then letting its activity cease of its own
accord when thought merges voluntarily into insight. When that is
done, you know the limitations of both yoga and enquiry as successive
stages. Whoever realizes this truth does not divorce from matter--as
most yogis do--but realizes non-difference from it. Hence we call this
highest path the "yoga of nonduality." But to reach it one has to pass
through the "yoga of philosophical knowledge."

Shortcut to Nirvana
I loved it too, Aum Shanti
- Did you happen to see the movie - Shortcut to Nirvana - Aum
Shanti had the feeling of that movie - here is a link below. When
I read online about Shortcut to Nirvana, I wanted to see it so I
emailed the director if he knew if he was coming to MN. It turned
out that about 6 months later he would be there. He had no one in
particular to hook up with in MN so we planned to meet. I brought
my very good sadhana buddy ( for her birthday) and my sangham of
about 7 of us and we met with him after the movie for dinner. The
director is Italian and spoke for about 15 minutes before the
move began which competed with the movie - he was such a complete
delight, with his accent, telling how he payed for the movie with
$60,000 of credit cards, a story of going for the gusto. His arms
and hands doing as much as his mouth.

New Milarepa Movie
Milarepa depicts the humble beginnings of the man who was to become Tibet's greatest saint.
A true story based on centuries-old oral traditions, a youthful Milarepa is propelled into a world of sorrow and betrayal after his father's sudden death. Destitute and hopeless,he sets out to learn black magic - and exact revenge on his enemies - encountering magicians, demons, an enigmatic teacher and unexpected mystical power along the way. But it is in confrontation with the consequences of his anger that he learns the most.
Photographed in the stunning Lahaul-Spiti region of Northern India, Milarepa offers a provocative parallel to the cycle of violence and retribution we see consuming today's world.
