Nonduality Highlights

~ Self-Shining, Pure Intelligence ~

What you are in essence
is self-shining, pure intelligence.

The very idea of shining implies a movement.
Movement is energy.
So, I call it "pure intelligence-energy'.

It is shining through your eyes.
You cannot say what it is,
and you canot negate it either.
It is 'no thing': It cannot be objectified.

 It ever expresses as that living, vibrant sense of presence,
which translates through the mind
as the thought 'I am'.

~ Bob Adamson

Holy Ground

By Ivan M. Granger
(1969 - )

Let the vision
of the vastness
you are
leave you
in glorious

Pilgrims will come
to imagine
the grand temple
that once stood,
not realizing

the wreck
made this empty plain
holy ground.

    "Your grief for what you've lost lifts a mirror
up to where you're bravely working.

Expecting the worst, you look and instead,
here's the joyful face you've been wanting to see.

Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
If it were always a fist or always stretched open,
you would be paralyzed.

Your deepest presence is in every small contracting
and expanding - the two as beautifully balanced and
coordinated as bird wings."

From the book, "We Are Three," published by Maypop Books posted to Daily Dharma
