non-duality

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on non-duality, blasphemy, reverence, god, the divine wow, playfulness, and trickster

BLASPHEMOUS REVERENCE.  Acting on the knowledge that the most efficacious form or devotion to the Divine Wow is tinctured with playful or mischievous behavior that prevents the buildup of fanaticism.

A Quote by Jennifer Welwood on experience, aloneness, loneliness, connection, fear, courage, loss, gifts, fleeing, welcoming, and non-duality

Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss,
I am given unimaginable gifts;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.

Each condition I flee from pursues me.
Each condition I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed…

Joy and sorrow are inseparable... Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on heritage, warfare, america, and non-duality

Some of my ancestors fought in the American Revolution. A few wore red coats, a few wore blue coats, and the rest wore no coats at all. We never did figure out who won that war.

A Quote by David R. Hawkins, MD, Ph.D on spirituality, non-duality, truth, and mind

Spiritual evolution occurs as the result of removing obstacles and not actually acquiring anything new. Devotion enables surrenders of the mind's vanities and cherished illusions so that it progressively becomes more free and more open to the light of Truth.

If you live the sacred and despise the ordinary, you are still bobbing in the ocean of delusion.

A Quote by Adyashanti on adyashanti, zen, non-duality, light, mindlessness, and change

What if you let go of every bit of control and every urge that you have, right down to the most infinitesimal urge to control anything, anywhere, including anything that may be happening with you at this moment? If you were able to give up control absolutely, totally, and completely, then you would be a spiritually free being.

A Quote by Adyashanti on adyashanti, zen, non-duality, light, mindlessness, and change

The light of consciousness has no mind to change or alter anything. When you start to see the light that you really are, the light waking up in you, the radiance, you realize it has no intention to change you. It has no intention to harmonize. It has no agenda. It just happens. The Truth is the only thing you'll ever run into that has no agenda. Everything else will have an agenda.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on non-duality, good and evil, heart sutra, illusion, survival, global politics, united states, soviet union, war, life, and conflict

In the West you have been struggling for many years with the problem of evil. But in the light of non-duality, there is not any problem.  You need both right and left to have a branch. Do not take sides, if you take sides, you are trying to eliminate half of reality, which is impossible. For many years, the United States has been trying to describe the Soviet Union as the evil side. Some Americans even have the illusion they can survive alone, without the other half. If we look at America very deeply, we see the Soviet Union. And if we look deeply at the Soviet union, we see America. If we look deeply at the rose, we see the garbage; if we look deeply at the garbage, we see the rose. In this international situation, each side is pretending to be the rose, and calling the other side garbage.

Survival means the survival of human kind as a whole, not just a part of it. If the South cannot survive, then the North is going to crumble. If countries of Third World cannot pay their debts, you are going to suffer here in the North. If you do not take care of the Third World, your well-being is not going to last, and you will not be able to continue living in the way you have been much longer. It is leaping out at us already. You cannot leave the job to the governments or the political scientists alone. You have to do it yourself.
