Mary Bianco NondualitySalon@yahoogroups.com,  

white
oh so very white
absolute white
naked white
stark, frozen and
sedulously present

to escape
such whiteness
I dive
deep
into its inexistence
to be baptized
in the waters
of infinite colors
only to rediscover
the entire spectrum
is ever-present
in the purity of
white

love
mary

Terry Murphy - offers some Rumi

Whoever is loved is beautiful, but the opposite is not true, that
whoever is beautiful is loved.  Real beauty is part of loved-ness, and that
loved-ness is primary.  If a being is loved, he or she has beauty,
because a part cannot be separate from the whole.  Many girls were more
beautiful than Laila, but Majnun did not love them.  "Let us bring some of them
to meet you," they used to say to Majnun, and he would reply, "it is not
the form of Laila that I love.  Laila is not the form.  You're looking at
the cup, whereas I think only of the wine that I will drink from that
cup.  If you gave me a chalice studded with gemstones, but filled it with
vinegar or something other than wine, what use would that be?  An old, broken
dipper-gourd with Laila-wine in it is better than a hundred precious
goblets full of other liquid."     Passion is present when a man can distinguish between the wine
and the container.  Two men see a loaf of bread.  One hasn't eaten anything
for ten days.  The other has eaten five times a day, every day.  He sees the
shape of the loaf.  The other man with his urgent need sees *inside* into
the taste, and into the nourishment the bread could give.  Be that
hungry, to see within all beings the Friend.
     Creatures are cups.  The sciences and the arts and all branches
of knowledge are inscriptions around the edges of the cups.  When a cup
shatters, the writing can no longer be read.  The wine's the thing! 
The wine that's held in the mold of these physical cups.  Drink the wine
and know what lasts and what to love.  The man who truly asks must be
sure of two things: One, that he's mistaken in what he is doing or thinking
now.  And two, that there is a wisdom he doesn't even know yet. 
Asking is half of knowing.
     Everyone turns toward someone.  Look for one scarred by the King's polo stick.
     A man or a woman is said to be absorbed when the water has total
control of him, and he no control of the water.  A swimmer moves
around willfully.  An absorbed being has no will but the water's going.  Any
word or act is not really personal, but the way the water has of speaking
or doing.  As when you hear a voice coming out of a wall, and you know
it's not the wall talking, but someone inside, or perhaps someone outside echoing off the wall.  Saints are like that.  They've achieved the condition of a wall, or a door.

Mace Mealer  

This one is often
       visited by confusion,
       but even when
       I make it
       a most honored guest,
       it seldom stays long.
       This sets me to think,
       that it doesn't care
       for contentment,
       who it appears,
       at times,
       may be taking up
       permanent residence.
       Oh well,
       neither
       are much bother,
       and it is
       such a
       beautiful day.
