The Nonduality Highlights

"To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown
out of the nest."

~Pema Chodron

from Daily Dharma


Deafened by the voice of desire
you are unaware the Beloved lives
in the core of your heart.
Stop the noise and
you will hear His voice
in the silence.

- Rumi

Rumi: Hidden Music
Translated by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi

from Along The Way


I know of a place not ruled by flatness
Or constant risings & depressions,
& those alive are not afraid to die.
There wild flowers come up through the leafy floor,
& the fragrance of "I am he" floats on the wind.
There the love bee stays deep inside the flower
and cares for no other thing.

~ Kabir

To be in the grip of an opinion means to be in the grip of your mind and
mistaking that for who you are in essence.

~ Eckhart Tolle



at this time
when the light is not yet
useful, merely

when a bright
honey pours
nectar over a curved
horizon, into a nameless

chalice, and your vision
wakes also, as if
to meet it, touching

when for an endless
moment all
colors are

color a shimmering
fabric an infinite
wisdom this

of pure love, so suddenly

your own. . .

There is an inner perfection
the same for everyone.
The psyche may go through the motions,
but it’s journey is done.

May our eyes see, though our hearts break.
May our hearts break, that they may open.
May our hearts bleed, that we know
life flows through them.
