Click here to go to the next issue Highlights Home Page| Receive the Nondual Highlights each day #1530- Thursday, August 21, 2003- Editor: Jerry This issue is dedicated to the music people listen to. Ben Hassine NDS Hello people, Music can have a real liberating and refreshing quality. It can even take you beyond/out of your normal state of consciousness, at least that is what I sense. Anyway, would you like to share some of the songs or compositions that lifted you out of yourself into the Other? Hope to hear from you, Ben. PS One of my contemporary "elevator songs" are: Van Morrison- Into the Mystic, Abyssinians- Meditation Dub, and Neil Young- Out on the Weekend Van Morrison Freyja Music, to me, is the quintessential language. There is nothing like it and its infinite combinations and the unique way it communicates and its being cannot be captured by words. I like almost everything, but here are a few that come to mind Leonard Cohen- Ten New Songs CD Jean-Pierre Rampal and Claude Bolling- Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano CD R. Carlos Nakai- Island of Bows CD Hemi-Sync Metamusic- Spirit's Journey CD Clannad- Landmarks CD John Barry- Dances With Wolves CD Prem Joshua- "New Kafi" Chinmaya Dunster& Vidroha Jamie "Wandering Way" Al Grommer Khan "Agori Dance" Ustad Usman Khan "Raga Hansadhwani" Deuter "Sunlight Dancing" Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon CD so many more... i'm glad you asked, i'm enjoying seeing what speaks to everyone ...

... for they are so discontinuous with ordinary consciousness. ~William James Rumi to Hafiz I found this poem in an old scrapbook of mine. It was written by the Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh, during the Vietnam War when he heard about the bombing of Ben Tre city. The city of 300,000 was destroyed when guerillas fired rounds of unsuccessful anti-aircraft fire and then left. He says his pain was profound and he wrote this poem. It is still relevant for today. -Joyce FOR WARMTH I hold my face in my two hands No I am not crying. I hold my face in my two hands. To keep my loneliness warm two hands protecting two hands nourishing two hands preventing my soul from leaving in anger.---Thich Nhat Hanh Joe Riley~ NDS Alan Watts Blues-- Van Morrison Well I'm taking some time with my quiet friend Well I'm takin' some time on my own. Well I'm makin' some plans for my getaway There'll be blue skies shining up above When I'm cloud hidden Cloud hidden Whereabouts unknown Well I've got to get out of the rat-race now I'm tired of the ways of mice and men And the empires all turning into rust again. Out of everything nothing remains the same That's why I'm cloud hidden Cloud hidden Whereabouts unknown (Bridge) Sittin' up on the mountain-top in my solitude Where the morning fog comes rollin' in Just might do me some good. Well I'm waiting in the clearing with my motor on Well it's time to get back to the town again Where the air is sweet and fresh in the countryside Well it won't be ...

He's the guy who wrote and sang Brown Eyed Girl and who wrote the song Gloria, among many other recognizable hits. This lyric hasn't yet been quoted in the Highlights.

Berkeley." http://turbulence.org/Works/song/ More from Martin Wattenberg: http://www.bewitched.com/ Ben Hassine~ NDS Van and Krishnamurti/some lite infotainment; -) As one might guess from the a careful listening to some of Van Morrison's lyrics, there is a connection between Van and Krishnamurti. The book Krishnamurti: 100 years by Evelyn Blaugh contains a quote from Van Morrison (page 237): Although I came across and read Krishnamurti's books in the early 1970s, I only heard him speak once, at Masonic Hall in San Francisco. As far back as I can remember I have been influenced by religious and philosophical works and I had a big change in my state of mind just prior to discovering Krishnamurti's books. His philosophy corresponded to what I myself was going through on an inward level. I feel the meaning of Krishnamurti for our time is that one has to think for oneself and not be swayed by any outside religions or spiritual authorities. Some time ago I wrote "In the Garden" from my album No Guru, No Method, No Teacher. Part of the lyrics are: And then one day you came back home You were ...

Inquiring about a difference Is like asking to borrow string when you've got a good strong rope. Every Dharma is known in the heart. After a rain, the mountain colors intensify. Once you become familiar with the design of fate's illusions Your ink-well will contain all of life and death. ~Master Hsu Yun The Beauty Of The Days Gone By Down The Road- Van Morrison When I recall just how it felt When I went walking down by the take My soul was free, my heart awake When I walked down into the town The mountain air was fresh and clear The sun was up behind the hill It felt so good to be alive On that morning in spring I want to sing this song for you I want to lift your spirits high And in my soul I want to feel The beauty of the days gone by The beauty of the days gone by It brings a longing to my soul To contemplate my own true self And keep me young as I grow old The beauty of the days gone by The music that we used to play So lift your glass and raise it high To the beauty of the days gone by I'll sing it from ...

... "Suzanne" and "Bird On a Wire"; he caught the bravado of the Eighties (" First We Take Manhattan"), and, having already plunged deep into the time out of time (" Night Comes On"), he then summarized the Nineties (" The Future"). When everyone had counted him out, he looked in on us again, from his cabin high up at the Mount Baldy Zen Center, and told us what was essential in the 21st century too. Yet what strikes me most, listening to these songs all at once, is how little in some sense he's changed; the changeless is what he's been about since the beginning. If you think of some of the other great pilgrims of song (Bob Dylan, say, or Van Morrison or Joni Mitchell), you see them pass through philosophies and selves as if through stations of the cross; with Cohen, one feels that he knew who he was and where he was going from the beginning, and only digs deeper, deeper. Listen to the "Master Song" here, and recall that it was written six years before he fell in with a Zen master, Joshu Sasaki-roshi; lose your heart, 35 years later, to "Alexandra Leaving," and remember that he was writing of "Alexandra's double bed" 23 years before, at the beginning of "Death of a Lady's Man." The moon passes through different phases --shows us a different face every night --but it's always the same moon. I went once to visit Cohen in his lonely ...

... is not about concepts or about understanding ? something ?, but rather that it is about falling into the mystery, the unknown. He examines a common trap people can fall into when they take the concepts of non-duality and ? turn them into ? a religion. Specifically, he looks at people falling into nihilism when they hear that there is nothing to get and nobody to do anything.
