The Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights
You are not "in the
now"; you are the now. That is your essential identity--the
only thing that never changes. Life is always now. Now is consciousness. And
consciousness is who you are. That's the equation.
If this were your only
spiritual practice, it would be enough: to withdraw
identification from opinions, positions, thoughts.
And this myth that I can
rest in some assuredness. That I will never again feel
insecure or feel fear, or feel doubt, or feel those emotions we dont want to
feel. If I'm truly enlightened I will never feel those emotions. Forget it. Thats
not it. That's the pipe dream. That is the opium that is sold to the masses.
And they eat it up and they never get there and they end up disillusioned.
Freedom is never freedom
"from." If it's freedom "from"
anything, it's not
freedom at all. It's freedom "to." Are you free enough to be afraid? Are you
free enough to feel insecure? Are you free enough not to know? Are you free
enough to know that you can't know? Are you free enough to be totally
comfortable, to know that you can't know what's around the next corner?
How you will feel about it? How you will respond to it? That you literally can't
know? Are you free enough to be totally at ease and comfort with the way
things actually are? That's freedom.
Not to know is profound;
to know is shallow. Not to know is internal; to know
is external. ~Chuang-tzu
To one who knows naught it is clearly revealed. ~Meister Eckhart
Sell your cleverness and
buy bewilderment; Cleverness is mere opinion,
bewilderment is intuition. ~Rumi
Rejoicing in nothing and knowing nothing are the true rejoicing and the true
All I know is that I know nothing. ~Socrates

When youre blind to
your own nature, the Buddha is an ordinary being. When
youre aware of your own nature, an ordinary being is the Buddha. ~Hui Neng
Enlightenment is not
about becoming divine. Instead it's about becoming
more fully human. . . . It is the end of ignorance. ~Lama Surya Das
A certain level of
maturity is needed to see things as they are and not to
blame the path, the self or the world. ~Sri Sri

Our intention is to
create an environment for people from all religions, all
world views, and all experience levels to join together in meditation. Our
vision is to continue inspiring world-wide meditations until the entire world is
