--A few quotes about non-duality


"There is a Reality which is Indivisible, One, Alone, the Source and Being of all; not a thing, nor even a mind, but pure Spirit or clear Consciousness; and we are That and nothing but That, for That is our true Nature; and the only way to find It is to look steadily within, where are to be found utmost peace, unfading joy, and eternal life itself." (From Religions of the World by Douglas Harding)

“THERE IS ONLY One. There is not ever in any sense many, or even two. All perception of distinction and separation, of duality, and therefore of what is known as physical reality, is a mind-created illusion, of the nature of a dream. What you think you are, a separate individual entity, is part of this illusion….You are not the doer of any action or the thinker of any thought. Events happen, but there is no doer. All there is, is Consciousness. That is what You truly are.” (From Perfect Brilliant Stillness by David Carse)

"God dwells in you, as you, and you don't have to 'do' anything to be God-realized or Self-realized, it is already your true and natural state." Just drop all seeking, turn your attention inward, and sacrifice your mind to the One Self radiating in the Heart of your very being. For this to be your own presently lived experience, Self-Inquiry is the one direct and immediate way."—Ramana Maharishi

“Wisdom tells me I am nothing. Love tells me I am everything. Between the two my life flows.” (From I am That by Nisargadatta Maharaj)

“The problem is not the dream. Your problem is that you like one part of your dream and not another. Love all, or none of it, and stop complaining. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that needs be done.” – From I am That by Nisargadatta Maharaj

Everything you do is for stillness of mind, for happiness, and yet anything that you do disturbs your mind … Cease thinking and making effort and you will get it. Don’t complicate yourself with thought and practice, don’t even practice non-practicing, just stay Quiet.” (From The Truth Is by Sri H.W.L. Poonja)

“Your authentic identity is the apex of transcendent power from which the process of transformation unfolds naturally and effortlessly. Inquiring into the truth of who you really are is the essential ingredient in the process. This possibility of transformation hinges on your willingness to live from, and as, the simple and natural feeling sense of I AM.” (From Break Out of Your Mind! By Leo Hawkins)

“Life is. There is no one living it. It is not ‘my life’. There is no ‘me’ that lives. But I am Life. This ‘I” is not a personalized ‘me’. It is not an assumed separate person. There is no implied separation between the writer and the reader. This ‘I’ is ‘you’. This ‘I’ is all that is. I am Life itself.” (From I am Life Itself by Unmani Liza Hyde)

“It is our continuously arising thoughts that create a sense of identity—a sensation of the ‘personal’, but if you look for yourself endlessly, you will never find yourself.” –Mandi Solk


Although these experiences continue to occur, they no longer refer to a someone, a me. Nor do they arise anymore to serve a personal purpose or to achieve a goal. Thinking never precedes action or speech. Everything has an immediacy that is empty of personally directed intention. The presence of any thoughts, feelings, or actions is never interpreted to mean anything other than they are present.”—(From Collisions with the Infinite by Suzanne Segal)
