Next week I'll feature several more responses to S.L.'s question as featured in previous Highlights issues this week.
Also I want to announce that an index to Jed McKenna's book Spiritual Enlightenment, The Damnedest Thing, is available as a .pdf file for sale. I believe you will find this detailed index enhances your understanding and enjoyment of the book. You may read a lengthy excerpt of the index and order it here
Finally, Nonduality Highlights on Facebook is an active group. Look us up and join!

Colin Drake's strikingly playful poetry is featured today, exclusive to the Highlights. Colin's books are now available in hard copy through Lulu.com. Details below.
Awareness is Nothing Special
Awareness nothing special is,
Nondual there is only This.
Which effortlessly facilitates
Experience of ephemeral states.
Every object comes and goes,
Resting in its sweet repose.
So more extra-ordinary are they,
Than This, present come what may
Underlying the universe,
And manifestation so diverse,
In which things arise and reside,
Back into which all subside.
Abiding in its natural state,
Our consciousness so innate.
This which informs the mind
Of that which in the world we find.
Alas the usual ego-state,
Tends Awareness to under-rate.
Searching for something more exotic,
Than this which we need not pick.
Far and wide does the mind roam,
Deluded, missing its true home.
Seeking that which is already here
Overlooked, being nearer than near.
Just like a confused cattle drover,
Not realizing the search is over,
Whose herd he has already found,
Out seeking their tracks upon the ground!
I am This.
You are This.
We are This.
All is This.
Just This is.
