The Nonduality Highlights -      


To make love,
For the divine alchemy to work,
The Pitcher needs a still cup.

Ask Hafiz to say
Anything more about
Your most

"The Gift"
Translations by Daniel Ladinsky

  Let go of your worries
and be completely clear-hearted,
like the face of a mirror
that contains no images.

- Rumi

  Natural Creativity    When we speak about natural creativity and its  expression, we are not
talking about something separate from our own  mind and experience. All
that we call “existent phenomena” is experienced  by mind. This
awareness is primordial and omnipresent—is there ever a  time when we
don’t experience? Experience can be dull, we may be asleep,  we may be
ignorant or distracted, but we are always “awake” in one way  or
another—experiencing our thoughts, our emotions, our state of mind, 
experiencing our dullness, our distractedness or joy. There has never 
been a time when we have been inanimate, like a rock. This creative 
energy never leaves us, whether we turn toward ignorance or 
enlightenment; whether our intelligence is obstructed or not; whether we 
operate from the ego or from a bigger state of mind. It remains in its 
own naked state at all times.

- Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, "Free Expression" 

  ?"True faith is that quality of consciousness that allows us to exist without blinders, without beliefs, without barriers to life of any kind."   - Adyashanti   posted by Tom Thompson to Facebook


as flowing waters disappear into the mist
we lose all track of their passage.
every heart is its own Buddha;
to become a saint, do nothing.

enlightenment: the world is a mote of dust,
you can look right through heaven's round mirror
slip past all form, all shape
and sit side by side with nothing, save Tao.

- Shi Shu
