Nonduality Highlights -     

The body trembles,
The tongue falters,
The mind is weary.

Forsaking them all,
I pursue my purpose happily.

Knowing I do nothing,
I do whatever comes my way,
And I am happy.

-Ashtavakra Gita 13:2-3
 Translation by Thomas Byrom

"Sometime go outside and sit,
In the evening at sunset,
When there's a slight breeze that touches your body,
And makes the leaves and the trees move gently.
You're not trying to do anything, really.
You're simply allowing yourself to be,
Very open from deep within,
Without holding onto anything whatsoever.
Don't bring something back from the past, from a memory.
Don't plan that something should happen.
Don't hold onto anything in the present.
Nothing you perceive needs to be nailed down.
Simply let experience take place, very freely,
So that your empty, open heart
Is suffused with the tenderness of true compassion."

                      ~Tsoknyi Rinpoche

From the book, "Carefree Dignity: Discourses on Training in the
Nature of Mind," published by North Atlantic Books.

Forgetting your Self is the greatest injury;
all the calamities flow from it.  Take care of
the most important, the lesser will take care
of itself.  You do not tidy up a dark room.  You
open the windows first.  Letting in the light
makes everything easy.  So, let us wait with
improving others until we have seen ourselves
as we are - and have changed.  There is no need
to turn around and round in endless questioning;
find yourself and everything will fall into its
proper place.

                 - Nisargadatta Maharaj

Conflict in any form distorts the mind

Conflict in any form distorts the mind. This is a fact, not some opinion or judgment given thoughtlessly. Any conflict between two people prevents their understanding each other. Conflict prevents perception. The understanding of what is, is the only important thing, not the formulating of what should be. This division between what is and what should be is the origin of conflict. And the interval between idea and action also breeds conflict. The fact and the image are two different things: the pursuit of the image leads to every form of conflict, illusion and hypocrisy whereas the understanding of what is, which is the only thing we really have, leads to quite a different state of mind.
