Nonduality Highlights: Issue #4068, Sunday, November 7, 2010, Editor: Mark

When you demand nothing of the world,
nor of God, when you want nothing, seek
nothing, expect nothing then the Supreme
State will come to you uninvited and

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, from I Am That, posted to AlongTheWay

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

- The Buddha, posted to DailyDharma

Life is an ocean. Jump in, dive deep.
Don't sit on the shore exchanging old
sailing stories. Zen is not a religion,
it is a way to be totally immersed in life.

Pete, posted to AdvaitaToZen

Emotional reactions, born of ignorance or inadvertence, are never justified. Seek a clear mind and a clean heart. All you need is to keep quietly alert, enquiring into the real nature of yourself. This is the only way to peace.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to ANetofJewels

You are the Self, here and now. Leave the mind alone, stand aware and unconcerned and you will realize that to stand alert but detached, watching events come and go, is an aspect of your real nature.

my dear friend
never lose hope
when the beloved
sends you away

if you're abandoned
if you're left hopeless
tomorrow for sure
you'll be called again

if the door is shut
right in your face
keep waiting with patience
don't leave right away

seeing your patience
your love will soon
summon you with grace
raise you like a champion

and if all the roads
end up in dead ends
you'll be shown the secret paths
no one will comprehend

the beloved i know
will give with no qualms
to a puny ant
the kingdom of Solomon

my heart has journeyed
many times around the world
but has never found
and will never find
such a beloved again

ah i better keep silence
i know this endless love
will surely arrive
for you and you and you

- Rumi, Ghazal (Ode) 765, from the Diwan-eShams, translation by Nader Khalilim from Rumi, Fountain of Fire, posted to Sunlight
