Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3879, Saturday, May 1, 2010, Editor: Mark

Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.

- Rabindranath Tagore, posted to The_Now2

Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You're covered with thick clouds.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.

~Rumi... who else?

"the speechless full moon.."

god, he's good.

There is no such thing as a person. There are only restrictions and limitations. The sum total of these defines the person.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to ANetofJewels

Children are living beings
- more living than grown-up people,
who have built shells of habit around themselves.
Therefore it is absolutely necessary
for their mental health and development
that they should not have
mere schools for their lessons,
but a world whose guiding spirit is personal love.

- Rabindranath Tagore, posted to The_Now2

A newborn baby is the purest form of a human being. This purity remains until the baby understands me/mine, you/yours.

- Baba Hari Dass, from Silence Speaks, posted to AlongTheWay

The ocean billowed, and lo!
Eternal Wisdom appeared
And cast forth its voice and cried out . . .
That was how it was and became.
The ocean was all filled with foam
and every fleck of this foam
Produced a figure like this,
and was a body like that,
and every body-shaped fleck
that heard a sign from that sea,
It melted and then returned
into the ocean of souls . . .

- Rumi, translation by Annemarie Schimmel, from I Am Wind, You are Fire, posted to Sunlight
