Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3886, Saturday, May 8, 2010, Editor: Mark

There is A madman inside of you
Who is always running for office.

Why vote him in,
For he never keeps the accounts straight.

He gets all kinds of crooked deals
Happening all over town
That will just give you a big headache
And glue to your kisser
A gigantic
Confused Frown.

There are two kinds of seekers: Those who seek happiness by changing outer circumstances, and those who seek happiness by trying to change themselves. Neither way works.

A great insight is only as good as the surrender it engenders.

Just as a speck in the eye, by causing inflammation, may wipe out the world, so the mistaken idea: "I am the body-mind" causes the self-concern, which obscures the universe. It is useless to fight the sense of being a limited and separate person unless the roots of it are laid bare. Selfishness is rooted in the mistaken ideas of oneself. Clarification of the mind is yoga.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to ANetofJewels

Let go of body and mind, until you reach a state of great rest, like letting go over a cliff ten miles high, being like open space. And don't produce representations of discriminations of random thoughts arising and passing away; the moment a view sticks in your mind, use the sword of wisdom to cut it right off, not letting it continue.

Life is this simple: We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the Divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable. It is true.
