Nonduality: The Varieties of Expression

Starting February 1, 2018, will operated by James Traverse.

James Traverse has over 40 years of experience in the art and science of yoga. He is a yoga educator and writer who communicates the direct approach to understanding your true nature. This experiential means, which is founded on a switchover from conceiving to purely perceiving, flowered principally out of Jamesí studies with his teacher, Jean Klein, who initiated him in the ways of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Shaivism. His other influences include the works of J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Rumi, Adi Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Atmananda Krishnamenon and the yoga of B K S Iyengar, whose method he studied intensely for the first 15 years of his yoga journey.

Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3806, Saturday, February 13, 2010, Editor: Mark

If your mind is empty it is ready for anything, it is open to everything... and includes everything.

- Shunryu Suzuki

The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of the divine.

- St. John of the Cross

Blending with the wind,
Snow falls;
Blending with the snow,
The wind blows.
By the hearth
I stretch out my legs,
Idling my time away.

Confined in this hut.
Counting the days,
I find that February, too,
Has come and gone
Like a dream.

- Ryokan, posted to DailyDharma

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy.
But he who kisses the joy as it flies,
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

- William Blake

The rains have stopped, the clouds have drifted away and the
weather is clear again.

If your heart is pure then all things in your world are pure.
Then the moon and the flowers will guide you along the way.

- Ryokan

When you dance
the whole universe dances.
What a wonder,
I've looked
and now I cannot look away!
Take me or do not take me,
both are the same -
As long as there is life in this body,
I am your servant.

- Rumi, Quatrain 784, version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva, from A Garden Beyond Paradise, posted to Sunlight

The Open Heart

The fully open heart rests in sweet unknowingness,
safe in its own embrace,
rushing to meet its own perceived need
that dissolves in the grace swallowing it.
Dancing its tender dance of sheer delight in its own
merging with Itself everywhere,
only THIS,
exquisitely so.

- Maren Springsteen
