Nondual Highlights Podcast #2, by Dustin LindenSmith


Dustin writes in the Nonduality community of Live Journal (
http://community.livejournal.com/nonduality/):

 

May I present the second podcast for the Nondual Highlights, comprising readings from some back issues of the highlights: namely, issues #2955, #2800, and #2630. In this podcast, I read from a blog entry by Faraz Ahmed about the inherent fallacy of that famous video The Secret; some pieces of literary nondual fiction from Floyd Henderson and Pete; and some commentary about the nondual aspects of the online 3D virtual world, Second Life. To listen to or to download the 18 MB, 15:52 podcast, please click on the following link:

Someone recently asked a lot of intellectual questions about the path.
All I can say is that it is better to be the questions than to think
about them. Being is above thought. That is tough love that leads to
awakening. Never back down from that position because it is faultless.

This is why the old Zen masters and patriarchs pointed.

Or whacked.

They didn’t chew their cabbage twice.

Burp.

AMBITION’S DEMISE  -  April 25, 2005

 

(at the Continental Inn  -  Tamales, California)

 

 

I HAD ACCUMULATED WEALTH

BUT FEARED A BEAR MARKET

 

I WAS FAITHFUL TO MY WIFE

BUT FEARED AN IRRESISTIBLE SIREN

 

I WAS HEALTHY

BUT FEARED THE INEVITABLE DECLINE

 

I WAS HAPPY

BUT FEARED DEPRESSION

 

I WAS WELL RESPECTED

BUT EVEN MY SKELETONS HAD SKELETONS

 

NOW I MOVE WITH THE BREEZE

LIKE AN EMPTY BOTTLE ON THE SEAS

BY LETTING GO OF THE POSITIVE POLE

I’M NOT INVESTED IN MY ROLE

WHAT HAPPENS WILL BE

I ACCEPT MY DESTINY

MY ANXIETY VANISHED

ONCE THE ME WAS BANISHED

 

WHAT’S THE POINT?   -   October 14, 2004

 

 

THE TRUTH CAN’T BE SPOKEN

AND I AIN’T JOKIN

 

SO WHAT’S THE POINT OF A POEM

IF O’ER FALSEHOOD I WILL ROAM

 

STILL I NEED TO PASS THE TIME

SO I MIGHT AS WELL JUST RHYME

 

WHEN THE MIND IS STILL

ONE DOESN’T NEED A PILL

 

WHEN THE MIND IS WHOLE

LIFE DOESN’T TAKE A TOLL

 

WHEN LIFE HAPPENS ON ITS OWN

WHO IS THERE TO MOAN AND GROAN

 

ONE CAN WITNESS THE WAKING DREAM

AND YET STILL BE WHAT ISN’T SEEN

 

WHEN ONE IS BUT A PIECE OF A PUZZLE THAT FITS

IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER WHETHER ONE PRAYS OR ONE SHITS

 

LIFE MAKES NO SENSE BUT I’M HAVING A BALL

CONCEPTS DON’T MATTER - UNDERSTANDING IS ALL.

 

 

THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE!   -  September 12, 2004

 

 

I WENT TO SCHOOL

EIGHT YEARS AFTER COLLEGE

AND I GAINED

CONSIDERABLE KNOWLEDGE

 

SO I COULD HELP

THOSE WHO WERE CONFLICTED

TO BREAK FREE OF THAT

TO WHICH THEY WERE ADDICTED

 

ONE IS A PROFESSOR

HOPED TO WIN THE NOBEL PRIZE

BUT SINCE HE HASN’T WON IT YET

HE GROANS AND MOANS AND SIGHS

 

ONE IS A LONELY MOVIE STAR

OFTEN IN PEOPLE MAGAZINE

HER ARROGANCE DRIVES HER LOVERS AWAY

BUT SHE’S ADORABLE ON THE SCREEN

 

ONE IS A RETIRED GENERAL

WHO MADE IT TO 3 STARS!

BUT SINCE HE THINKS HE DESERVED THE 4TH

HE FEELS LIKE HE’S BEHIND BARS

 

ONE WAS IN A ROCK BAND

WITH AN ALBUM THAT WENT GOLD

BUT NOW HE PLAYS IN COFFEE SHOPS

AND HE’S STARTING TO LOOK OLD

 

ONE STARTED A COMPANY

THAT HE SOLD FOR 50 K

BUT NOW HE WONDERS WAS IT LUCK

HE’S GOT NOTHING TO DO ALL DAY

 

FOR SOME “THE DREAM” IS BEYOND THEIR REACH

FOR OTHERS ACHIEVED AND LOST

BUT NOW I’M WONDERING IF HAVING GOALS

IS WORTH THE SUFFERING THEY COST

 

 

 

THE SAGE   - July 2004

 

(For Wayne Liquorman)

 

 

THERE ONCE WAS A SAGE WITH A BEARD

WHO DISCIPLES SOMETIMES FEARED

HIS WORDS WERE UNTRUE

WHEN SPOKEN TO YOU

BUT I HEARD HIM SO I DISAPPEARED
