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.

The Nonduality Highlights -  

Re my past issue: "Finding my mind isn't mine" had a non-working link to the video. Here are some substitutions.

Sense of I and out of body experiences  

Neuroscience and Free Will  

To exist means to be something, a thing, a feeling,
a thought, an idea.  All existence is particular.
Only being is universal, in the sense that every
being is compatible with every other being.
Existences clash, being - never.  Existence means
becoming, change, birth and death and birth again,
while in being there is silent peace.

The Wisdom of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj  
"Liberation is never of the person, it is always from the person."
"There can be no such thing as changeless consciousness. Changelessness wipes
out consciousness immediately. A man deprived of outer and inner sensations
blanks out, or goes beyond consciousness and unconsciousness into the birthless
and deathless state."

"Discard every self-seeking motive as soon as it is seen and you need not search
for truth; truth will find you."  

"Under the right teacher, the disciple learns to learn, not to remember and
obey. Satsang, the company of the noble, does not mold, it liberates. Beware
of all that makes you dependent."

"As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part. "  

"With some, realization comes imperceptibly, but somehow they need convincing. They have changed, but they do not notice it. Such non-spectacular cases are often the most reliable."  

-- Nisargadatta

On realization, you feel complete, fulfilled, free from the pleasure-pain complex, and yet not always able to explain what happened, why and how. You can put it only in negative terms: "Nothing is wrong with me any longer". It is only by comparison with the past that you know that you are out of it. Otherwise, you are just yourself.  

-- Sri Nisargadatta

Message from Stillness Speaks    

Rupert Spira is doing a live event at One Spirit in NYC Thursday, July 15 through Sunday, July 18. The details are on in our “store” under Live Events. Click on this link and it will direct you to the specific details of the event, as well as the ability to purchase tickets.  

"In our meetings we simply take our stand knowingly as Presence itself and explore the beliefs and feelings that suggest that we are anything less than this absolute freedom and love itself."

Author of The Transparency of Things, Rupert leads meetings and retreats worldwide. Please see his website for further details:

ED NOTE: This NYC event is an unbelievable (to me, anyway) mere $15 a day. Listen to or watch some interviews on his website. He is quite special, indeed. -Gloria
