How does that story go?  If a butterfly flaps its wings in China…something on the otherside of the world moves in accordance with it.  That’s oneness, our connection to the whole, as the whole.

One teaching we draw from nondual wisdom is that it is possible for any one of us to tune into the wisdom of the ‘natural-self.’   When that happens, we are less likely to interpret what we are experiencing as something we either ‘like’ or ‘don’t like,’ and shift to seeing and appreciating all of our experiences as ‘teachers’ – experiences that are teaching us valuable life lessons.

Some of the nondual teachings people find helpful are:

  3. Investigating ‘acceptance’ and what that really means in ‘your’ life, on a day-to-day, moment-to-moment basis.
  4. Strongly considering the possibility that ‘nothing is personal.’
  5. Learning how to ‘respond’ instead of ‘react.’

Devotion

Devotion   Every day Ramana would sit out on a rock to clean his teeth, even when the rains came and the winds whipped at his dhoti, still he sat, mountain and man fused into One, and when his devotees tried to stop him, to lure him towards where it was warm, he refused....

Porumda

When I Die

      When I die, I’d like Ramana to be painted on my lips,   his name graven into the shivering fish of my mouth,   each tooth an alphabet of his,    each letter sending home   a gift of love so true,    the body rendered...
