Nonduality Highlights: Issue #4339, Sunday August 14, 2011

True happiness is uncaused and this cannot disappear for lack of stimulation. It is not the opposite of sorrow, it includes all sorrow and suffering.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj, posted to AlongTheWay

You have always been one with the Buddha, so do not pretend you can ATTAIN to this oneness by various practices.

Huang Po, posted to Distillation

Our mind is like an onion, and each day and month of practice progressively peels away the layers of delusion.

Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey, posted to Distillation

Whether you're sitting in a quiet place meditating or walking down the sidewalk, you can turn awareness back to its source. This is where we realize we all meet as one consciousness.

You are the Perceptual Center
of all your experience.

Realize This, and you will discover that
the universe is contained within
the light of your own innate
Natural Awareness, and
you are not limited by
who or what
you imagine yourself to be.

Remember: you are That which is
Seeing, Observing and Perceiving...

- Metta Zetty


Sunlight touching treetops,
Birds awakening...
Morning rises after night
With a constancy and grace.

While politics swirl
Conflicts rage, economies teeter
Hurricanes roar,
Morning dawns over all
Without apology or praise
But with simple welcoming
Of all that is lit
By its presence.

What kind of love
Embraces this wild world
With such a welcome?
What love is this, that
Contains such
Darkness and strife
When the world
Refuses to conform
To our demands for
Outer peace,
And then wraps us
In such wonder
And grace?

Fear, war, starvation,
And so much else
Are included in the
Grace of morning light
On a darkened world.

In the light's first
Touch of a leaf
There is something that
Embraces all of what we are
And includes us
In the full circle
Of life as it is.
We see that we are
Something whole
And seamless,
And perfect.

The heart of each morning
Offers with outstretched hands,
An expansion, a release
Out off our self-made prisons
Into a world ruled by a love
That excludes nothing,
A love we can trust,
A love at peace
With all things.

Even this, and this, and
Especially and

- Alice Gardner
