The Nonduality Highlights -







"Desiring happiness is the illness of attachment.

It is through the absence of desire, that one gains happiness.


Buddhahood does not happen by being made to happen.

It is unsought and naturally indwelling, and so is

spontaneously present.


Rest nonconceptually in this effortless, natural abiding state."


~The All-Creating Monarch Tantra, from Longchenpa's

Don't talk of different religions.
The one reality is everywhere,
not just in a Hindu, or a Muslim,
or anywhere else!  Realize:

your awareness is
the truth about God.

- Lalla

There is no worse sickness for the soul,
O you who are proud, than this pretense of perfection.
The heart and eyes must bleed a lot
before self-complacency falls away.






Life has taught me the wisdom of moving toward what scares me.


Although it is embarrassing and painful, it is very healing to stop hiding from
yourself. It is healing to know all the ways that you’re sneaky, all the ways
that you hide out, all the ways that you shut down, deny, close off, criticize
people, all your weird little ways. You can know all of that with some sense of
humor and kindness. By knowing yourself, you’re coming to know humanness
altogether. We are all up against these things. We are all in this together.
