Today’s Sosan Moment

sosan.jpg

Good morning!

Snow halfway up my calves, freezing temperatures, light refracting off all that whiteness… and I am blessed to wake up to the following quote:

Emptiness here, Emptiness there, but the infinite universe stands always before our eyes. Infinitely large and infinitely small; no difference, for definitions have vanished and no boundaries are seen. So too with Being and non-Being. Don’t waste time in doubts and arguments that have nothing to do with this. One thing, all things: move among and intermingle, without distinction. To live in this realization is to be without anxiety about non-perfection. To live in this faith is the road to non-duality, because the non-dual is one with the trusting mind.

Words!

The Way is beyond language, for in it there is
no yesterday
no tomorrow
no today.

Have a great day, my friends….

    In recent months I have begun to feel at home in the non-duality of existence. You have been a helpful facilitator in the process of movement to that understanding. Life is richer as a result.

    It’s a tightrope walk, Hawk. The whole thing is Zen koan — there’s something familiar there, but it doesn’t quite make sense, since it’s beyond the intellect. It takes a lot of patience and tolerance to let it sink in through the backdoor, so to speak.

    Mike: In keeping with your decision to launch AntiSniviler, the words of a contemporary Catholic contemplative, Richard Rohr, are very fitting:

    In order to reconstruct, we need to be open to something more than cerebral, rational knowing. We need to move toward a more spacious contemplative knowing. We need to move beyond the dualistic seesaw mind to a mind beyond quick judgments, beyond the self and its own self-interest, beyond win/lose and either/or worldviews. This is actually conversion in its most basic sense, but it is also the way to enormous wisdom and the vision of God. Only the whole self is ever ready for the Whole God.

    Rohr spins this out in an admirable way. You are on to something that I hope you will sustain, Mike. Wish we could sit down over some coffee, wine, or a good cold beer and talk for some hours.
