The Nonduality Highlights - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NDhighlights
To know no one teaching,
to express nothing, to say nothing, to explain
nothing, to announce nothing, to indicate nothing, and to designate nothing -
that is the entrance into nonduality.
"Do not try to
become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not
be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. What you
walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing."
~ Ajhan Chah
Who would dare to go
nameless in so secure a universe?
Yet, to tell the truth, only the nameless are at home in it.
They bear with them in
the center of nowhere the unborn flower of nothing:
This is the paradise tree. It must remain unseen until words end and arguments are silent.

The man to whom is
the mysteries of love
exists no longer,
but vanishes into Love.

Question: Some say that
to make an effort for one's liberation is selfish, and
that instead of that, one should do good to others by selfless service.
Bhagavan: Those people
believe that jnanis (realized beings) are selfish and
that they themselves are selfless, but this is not a true belief. The jnani lives in
the experience of Brahman (the impersonal Absolute Reality) and the effect of
this experience spreads all over the world. A radio transmission is done from
one point but its effect can be felt all over the world. Those who would like to
benefit from it can do so. Similarly, the Self-realization of the jnani spreads
everywhere and whosoever wants can tune into it. This is not a lesser service.

The jnani (self realized)
takes his stand in the Self at all times, absolute,
fearless. He does not think of the universe as unreal nor does he see it as
different from himself...
~ Ramana Maharshi
It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.

When I heard the sound of
the bell ringing,
there was no bell,
and there was no I-
there was only the ringing.
Once you stop clinging
and let things be,
youll be free, even of birth and death.
And youll be at peace wherever you are.
Even as fire finds peace
in its resting place without fuel,
when thoughts become silence
the soul finds peace in its own source.
When the mind is silent,
then it can enter into a world
which is far beyond the mind:
the highest End.
The mind should be kept
in the heart
as long as it has not reached the highest End.
This is wisdom, and this is liberation.
