Dont OveraccessorizeA Fashion Tip For Nondualists
by Vicki Woodyard
Nondualists tend to overdress. Professing to be nondual, they fall into the fashion no nos that lesser mortals do. They leave the house dripping in pointers, and I am not talking about their manicured nails.
They tend to wear tiaras and crowns bejeweled in metaphors. This makes them so top heavy they sometimes tumble into ice sculptures at cocktail parties headfirst. Makes me shiver to think about it.
As a nondual fashion guru, let me give you some tips on KISS.
Before you go out for the evening, lets say to a spiritual soiree or sangha, look in the mirror. Oh, I know you claim that there is nobody there, but humor me. Do you see that handful of rings you are sporting? Take them off, take them all off. You are married to the One.
Less is more, and your paste jewelry is preventing us from seeing who you are.
Keep taking off concepts until you feel totally denuded. Go naked to the party. So what if you get arrested? There is no body there.
And last but not least. Stop with the tattoos already. Nobody wants to read wrinkled scripture.
