Nonduality Highlights

Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking
about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen
spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.

- Alan Watts

If you do not see God in the next person you see, you need look no further.

  "The God Who Only Knows Four Words":

Every Child Has known God,

Not the God of names,

Not the God of don’ts,

Not the God who ever does

Anything weird,

But the God who only knows four words

And keeps repeating them, saying:

"Come dance with Me." Come Dance.

--Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

God is Shining Through...

“Life is this simple. We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent, and God is shining through all the time.

This is not just a fable or a nice story. It is true.

If we abandon ourselves to God and forget ourselves, we see it sometimes, and we see it maybe frequently.

God shows Himself everywhere, in everything – in people and in things and in nature and in events.

It becomes very obvious that God is everywhere and in everything and we cannot be without Him. It’s impossible. The only thing is we don’t see it.”

--Thomas Merton
