Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3976, Sunday, August 8, 2010, Editor: Mark

You must find your own way. Unless you find it yourself, it will not be your own way and will take you nowhere. Earnestly live your truth as you have found it, act on the little you have understood. It is earnestness that will take you through, not cleverness - your own or another's.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to ANetofJewels

These teachings are only a finger pointing toward Noble Wisdom...They are intended for the consideration and guidance of the discriminating minds of all people, but they are not the Truth itself, which can only be self-realized within one's own deepest consciousness.

- from the Lankavatara Sutra

That One which is beyond all thought is inconceivable by all thought.

- Dionysius the Areopagite

So long as the sense of "me" and "mine" remains, there is bound to be sorrow and want in the life of the individual.

- Anandamayi Ma

It is by descending into the depths of his own self that man wanders through all the dimensions of the world; in his own self he lifts the barriers which separate one sphere from the other; in his own self, finally, he transcends the limits of natural existence and at the end of his way, without, as it were, a single step beyond himself, he discovers that God is 'all in all' and there is 'nothing but Him'.

- Gershom Scholem

What is suffering? What is death? In reality, they do not have any existence. They appear within the framework of the manifestations produced by the mind wrapped up in an illusion. ...In the emptiness of mind, there is no death. No one dies. There is no suffering and no fear.

- Bokar Rinpoche

If you don't wash out the stone and sand, how can you pick out the gold? Lower your head and bore into the hole of open non-reification, carefully seek the heart of heaven and earth with firm determination. Suddenly, you will see the original thing!

- Liu I-ming
