The Nonduality Highlights -



Trust that a thread of love
operates in everything
and listen deeply
for this Love…









The grass beneath the tree is content
and silent.

A squirrel holds an acorn in its praying hands,
offering thanks, it looks like.

The nut tastes sweet;
I bet the prayer spiced it up somehow.

The broken shell falls on the grass,
and the grass looks up and says,
And the squirrel looks down and says:

I have been saying ’Hey’ lately too,
to God.

Formalities just weren’t

I could not lie anymore so
I started to call my dog “God”.
First he looked confused,


then he started smiling,
then he even


I kept at it: now he doesn’t even bite.


I am wondering if this
might work on

Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.


"The Tempest"




And if, my friend, you ask me the way,
I'll tell you plainly, it is this:
to turn your face toward the world of life,
and turn your back on rank and reputation;
and, spurning outward prosperity, to bend
your back double in his service;
to part company with those who deal in words,
and take your place in the presence of the wordless.

Always speak from the heart, never from the mind.
Your sincerity and courage will set an example for others too,
And by listening to you they will be inspired to reveal their own heart.


This "heart speaking" is a spiritual practice.
It means you must only tell the truth and live within your own boundaries and dimensions
Without ever bragging about things you won't ever be able to live up to or deliver to others.


Heart speaking will bring you a gift whenever you practice it.
You will always be right.
The heart knows but cannot tell; the mind doesn't know but can tell.


Stretch yourself to speak from the heart and bypass the mind.
You will see miracles boomerang back into your life.

"When I write a poem, I don't know quite what it means. If I think I
know what it means, I've got a bad poem. I want a poem to be beyond me.
I want it to be something that transfers a feeling I don't quite
understand the limits of."


~Louis Simpson
