Nondual Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights
Few have realized that if a computer is able to beat humans in chess, it might be possible for a computer to compile texts with 'nondual' in the subject line. A computer might state the seemingly obvious that no practice is needed whereas some humans might know the really obvious: that in the course of events it is possible to forget to eat healthy food, to breathe properly and to have some daily exercise. When an MD or a therapist has to teach what is forgotten unknowingly, the same goes for something even more obvious that has been forgotten as well. Some call the substitution of 'bad' habits for 'good' habits a practice ;-)

Subject: [WithKnowledgeComesResponsibility] Zimbabwe Medicine Man Mandaza Touring U.S. This Fall - Indiana, Sedona, Mt. Shas
Date: Tuesday, October 16, 2007 1:37 AM
Those of us in a small, suburban town of Cleveland, Ohio had the privilege of sitting around a bonfire tonight (October 15, 2007) and visiting with one of the most beautiful spirits on the planet, Mandaza, a medicine man from Zimbabwe, a man whose vision, like our own, is healing and peace for our planet. He also recognizes all cultures and all people as his family.
He is currently travelling in the United States. Starting tomorrow (Oct 16), he will be in Indianapolis, Indiana, then onto Ashland, Oregon, Mt. Shasta, California, Sedona, Arizona, Napa, California, and Laguna Beach, California.
Please see details of these travels at the following link. http://www.mandaza.org/calendar.html
This is a not to be missed experience if you are fortunate enough to live near any of the areas to which he is travelling.
A website is being created for him; however, the only thing up and running at the moment is the "schedule". Should you wish to bring Mandaza to your area on his return to the U.S. in 2008 or to whatever area you are in the world, please contact the designated person at the link and she will be able to assist your request.
Thank you for sharing this with others who might be interested. Submitted in the spirit of peace and joy,

Dear Loved Ones,
I am sharing a wondrous evening with you, though, somehow you must have been t/here. In Presence, in the One Spirit, there is no time and space. Smiles.
Mandaza Medicine Man
I picked the drum with the painted moon and stars, the dragonfly, long time friends, when I wore moccasins on my trail of tears, but today
I am a shadow of a jaguar woman, in the taught skin of the drum, and the rhythm picks my bones and the rhythm hides my eyes,
Mandaza speaks of dreaming of ancestors, of aloneness of a community of spirits alive in the emptiness surrounding this dark autumn night, in the faraway land of Strongsville, Ohio,
where the Clan of the Wounded Healer gather there, in that Zimbabwe bonfire,
give life in the ashes of Light, give thanks for all who have come before us, who guide us with stories of how it was before we became dreamers.

What success means In a CNBC interview with Warren Buffet, here is an interesting piece of conversation. This in my opinion, is the essence of Buffet's thinking about life, success & happiness. Read on...
CNBC: "What is Warren Buffet's secret of success?"
Warren Buffet: "I say that when people get to my age, and they have the people who love them that they want to have love them...they're successful, whether they have got $1000 in the bank or a Billion Dollars in the bank."
CNBC: "Well you're talking to the CNBC audience Mr. Buffet. Let's talk about financial success, professional success"
Warren Buffet: "Well, I would say success is really doing what you love and doing it well.... It's simple as that."
... Maitreya and the Messiah were journeying through the Kalahari game preserve, when, suddenly, they were both shaken "to their very electrons" by the apparition of a large Elephant (Ganesha) who crashed thru the dense brush under the Sycamore and Boabab trees to stop immediately in front of them, bristling.
... the GRID resounded
... this Net reverberated
... Maitreyah's hands shot against her racing chest, as she cried out "Christ! It's an Elephant!"
... the GrandMothers paused in their prayers.
... Sun Wu Kong (Monkey), bolting up from Ganesha's back, hair raising on end, shrieked "Elephant!" It's a Christ!"
... in the Sky Palace above, Kuan Yin laughed while turning to Sakyamuni and saying "Pass the bowl of Peaches."
... Coyote howled
... Dolphin eeecked
... Whale belched
... GrandMother Sun (NuWa) grinned even wider still, her Crow's feet stretching from horizon to horizon ...
... and Amanogawa's Song touched each and every one of them, us!
(you were on the sofa, strumming "oobladee" on your guitar.
I was chuckling, this pen & pad in hand, attempting a legible transcript of it all ...)
