The Nonduality Highlights -      

The monkey is reaching
For the moon in the water.
Until death overtakes him
He'll never give up.
If he'd let go the branch and
Disappear in the deep pool,
The whole world would shine
With dazzling pureness.

"It is truth that frees, not your effort to be free."   J Krishnamurti  

  "By listening repeatedly to.. discourse...on (truth), the path to first hand knowledge of what has been heard gradually opens out. It as when water uninterruptedly dripping on a stone finally makes a hole in it, and a flood may suddenly surge through..."  

-Anandamayi Ma

My home was at Cold Mountain from the start,
Rambling among the hills, far from trouble.

Gone, and a million things leave no trace
Loosed, and it flows through galaxies
 A fountain of light, into the very mind -
Not a thing, and yet it appears before me:
Now I know the pearl of the Buddha nature
Know its use: a boundless perfect sphere.

When men see Han-shan
They all say he's crazy
And not much to look at -
Dressed in rags and hides.
They don't get what I say
And I don't talk their language.
All I can say to those I meet:
"Try and make it to Cold Mountain."

Francis Lucille: Many Other Levels?

Francis Lucille: Many Other Levels?

Last night, I once again watched the interview of Francis Lucille on with our friend, Ian McNay. It is a most unusual interview in that it becomes quite awkward simply due to it's power, which lies beyond words.

Much to the chagrin of my teacher and friend, I have decided to post it here in it's entirety. I  point to it as a pure demonstration of clarity and "reasonableness".

To this one, the perfume is undeniable.

It is a demonstration of an attempt to meet  in the moment as opposed to speaking of what "we know" from the illusory past.

"It is the question that triggers the answer. If there is no urgency and intensity in the question, the answer does not come.... I am not listening to questions, I am listening to questions and I am listening to the answers." Francis Lucille
