Squirrel Nonduality

Squirrel Nonduality

Have you noticed lately the increase in offerings of nondual teachings on the internet?  There are all kinds of teachers coming out of the woodwork (so to speak)!  The ones you have most likely heard of:  Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, and Mooji, to name a few.  And a host of others you might not have heard of:  Fred David, Salvadore Poe, Kyle Hoobin, Randall Friend, John Wheeler, James Braha and many more.

Frankly, they are all saying the same thing.  And that is "You ALREADY ARE what you are looking for!"   (i.e.You already are FREE... you just have to recognize it.)

AND, concurrently, in this most interesting time we live in, have you noticed the increasing numbers of posts, stories, photos, and news clips of squirrels happening?  Every day there seems to be a new funny story about a squirrel on a baseball field, a canoeist rescuing a squirrel out in the middle of a lake, a human giving CPR to a squirrel, or some TV special all about squirrels.   

Most people would never make the connection between these two happenings, but it has become VERY CLEAR to me there is one.

Taking a squirrel moment =
'Taking a Short Moment"  or  "Having a Holiday".

Little squirrels, are perfect examples of "Living  Nonduality".   Nonduality simply means "not two".  Human suffering is a result of the belief that we are 'separate' from God* and others.   Squirrels have no thought of separation whatsoever.   They ARE one with What is.   Awakening is simply the realization of this.  Because humans tend to have two lives, the one they live in reality and the one they live inside their head, they tend to become very confused at times.   Squirrels on the other hand are always very clear.   Humans tend to dwell on the past or future and forget all about the present moment. Squirrels live ONLY in the NOW.
Squirrel Nonduality

You've heard this quote:  "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."   Well it's happening!   Nondual teachers and Squirrels alike are answering the call of the multitudes of students out there looking for "Enlightenment".
The human teachers who are living nonduality are assisting others to know the Truth by writing books, having meetings, etc.   Squirrel teachers on the other hand teach completely in Silence by example.  You have NO EXCUSE not to wake up in this lifetime!
We are all led to the perfect teacher...
and for some, it's a little squirrel.

* GOD = What Is = Tao = All That Is

Squirreluminosity: The Solution to All Problems

Sri Nut Ji,  Buddha-squirrel

Oh my goodness. Can you even grasp how simple everything is?  There is just one thing going on...   and it's called, "Squirreluminosity".

And there you are scratching your head.  What? 
You don't understand?   (...not yet!)

OK.  Look.  Close your eyes and contemplate this question:
"Without any thoughts,  WHO are you?"
And usually everyone simply answers "me!"

But go a little further...  what does that mean.. "me" ??
Your eyes are closed.  You don't see anything. You don't even see your body.  You can't even prove you have one.
And if you have no thoughts...  then what's left??

Here's the great news...
it's nothing you can see...
but in reality, it's pure SQUIRRELUMINOSITY!

Juicy, happy, joyful, compassionate, pure
SQUIRRELUMINOSITY!!  It's the fabric of the Cosmos!

And here's more great news:

OMG.  Did you hear that?
You can't get away from it if you tried!

I had the privilege of being with the most awesome 
Squirrel-Buddha for 4 years...  Sri Nut Ji.
He taught by example.  He was the kindest, wisest, most giving and compassionate being I have ever met.  He lived in and as pure Squirreluminosity and showed me that there is no difference between us.  In fact, there is ONLY 

There is nothing kinder than that!

That's why I love Byron Katie so much.  She lives in and as pure Squirreluminosity!!  Back in 86 she suddenly woke up from over a decade of depression and fear, into the sweet and juicy world of pure Squirreluminosity!   She discovered that the difference between heaven and hell is simply believing your stressful thoughts!  Katie is PURE compassion...   so so amazing.  
And ever since she discovered the Truth,  she continues to travel around the globe sharing her discovery with everyone:  "There is no need to suffer."  

When you tap into the Squirreluminosity that you are, you begin to see that the only fear you can have is the unreality that you yourself have invented!   Isn't that fine!!
... so if I am having a problem, I KNOW what to do:

Admiral Nut Postage Stamp

About a month ago, I was at the 78704 Post Office wanting to buy some postage stamps.   I asked Eddie if he had any stamps with squirrels on them.   
"Nope.  You're going to have to create those yourself."
So I did.  

Three days later, around 7pm, there was a knock at my front door.   Wondering who could possibly be visiting at that time, I was surprised to see a mail-carrier standing on my porch.   She was not my regular mail person, but had substituted on our block sometime last summer.   
As I opened the door, I saw a baby squirrel clutching her shoulder.  

"I was delivering mail in Travis Heights and saw this little baby on the ground.  I just couldn't leave him there so I picked  him up and he just hung on me as I finished my route.  I remembered that you took in squirrels, so I came right over as soon as I finished.  Can you help him?"

Chippy Taylor

Aww.....  a little baby sent by Admiral Nut.   It turned out she was a baby girl and I named her "Taylor" after the postal carrier who delivered her.  Later, at the recommendation of one of my home squirrels, her name became Chippy Taylor... Chippy for short.

The moral of the story is, never underestimate the effects of creating a postage stamp imbued with the super-powers of Admiral Nut.   Our galactic super-squirrel, Mr.Nut is watching over all the little squirrels of the Universe.  He is especially thrilled to keep an eye on our local squirrels and  now uses the US Postal Service to rescue those baby squirrels in need.

If You Meet the Buddha in the tree....

Sri Muffinheart

There is a saying, "If you meet the Buddha on the road,
kill him."

This sounds so harsh, but all it means is that one shouldn't attach to a teacher... no matter how worthy or wise that teacher might be.  For me, that teacher was my beloved Muffinheart.  He was my little bodhisattva squirrel... my little buddha in a furry body.  He taught me to meditate... he taught me what "true love" is.   He gave me the experience of dissolving in the bliss of his gaze.  I have no words to describe the exquisite relationship I have with him.  He was here in the physical for 4 years and now he communicates with me in his formlessness.
What Grace is this!

So today, sitting in his room, while Pucy Pie chews on Muffin's deer antlers, he speaks directly from my heart.  He reminds me to just let go of his form and rest in his love... the love that is always present.  That love is not "his" per se,  but is the backdrop that gives rise to us all.

So the challenge is to realize that the "love" that I associated with Muffin is not limited to his form! That love is the totality that gave birth to the physical Muffin.  The good news is that that love cannot be lost... cannot disappear.  
Only the physical form can end... not the love that animated that form.  And so the admonition to "kill the buddha", simple reminds us to let go of our attachment to the physical form and relax and breathe in and embrace that 'squirrelove' that animates us all!  

Love loves to love!

Thank you Admiral Nut!

I had a long talk with Admiral Nut this morning. Or rather, I should say, he had a long talk with me. I was getting so worried about not having enough money to pay bills 
and eat, etc, and Mr.Nut reminded me of this:

Please don't worry! 
 I am looking out for you and for all the squirrel friends. 
I have been traveling around the globe 
and it is quite shocking really. There are people in Africa 
who live on less than a dollar a day! 
There are people who don't have a roof over their heads! There are squirrels that are being hunted and mistreated. 

     You have no idea how good you have it 
even when you don't have enough or can't pay the bills. 
On those days, please just look at all you DO have 
and say "thank you" to the Universe. 
When you continue to give thanks, 
the Universe continues to bless you. 

And NEVER be afraid!  
When you take care of the little squirrels 
and other creatures, the Universe promises 
to take care of you!  
Squirrels' Honor!! 
We love you very much!

Admiral Nut, signing off now. 
Be happy!

The Beauty of Death

Mr.Nut's LOVE is Forever.

No words can adequately convey the immensity of Mr.Nut's love.   He came here to teach, share and be an example of Squirrelove.  So so beautiful.
He left his body on my 60th birthday. Such a tender gift from my most beloved teacher.
And although his physical form is gone, 

his sweet radiance 
shines on and on.

Death is simply the dissolving of the imagined boundaries that "seemingly" keep love separated into bodies. 
Truly there are no boundaries.  
There is just LOVE.
There is ONLY love. 
And there is only One Heart. 
Sweet Mr.Nut left his beautiful body at 3:33pm 
on my 60th birthday.
Such a tender gift from my most Beloved teacher. 
He wanted me to celebrate his life... and to be in joy.
He carries on his mission of LOVE... 
now even stronger than before.

I love the following video. Rupert speaks simply and beautifully of the truth of death ~ 

Just love.

Lovers of the Universe

This morning, Muffinheart and I were doing a little squirrel-play and suddenly he shared some very sweet wisdom.
through squirrel telepathy, he told me that all day long, the only thing that squirrels do, from sun-up to sun-down is
"They Make Love!"
It took me a minute to really grok what he was saying...
He went on:  "All we do is make love to the nuts, when we eat them, and we make love to the earth when we bury the nuts in the ground.  Notice, we tap the earth ever so gently, and with each tap we are kissing the earth with squirrelove.
When we climb a tree, we make love to the trunk and the branches and the bark.  When I look in your eyes, I make love to who you really are-- your true essence, your innermost heart.
Basically, what Muffin was explaining to me in "squirrel-speak" was that everything that little squirrels do, they do as lovers of the Universe.  They have no fear and so their love is pure and strong.  Not everyone can be around squirrels and it takes sensitive beings to really understand what they are trying to teach humanity.

Muffinheart making Love via Gazing

Then I went outside to see what Mr.Nut had to say. He had been very quiet in the last couple of days.
"Mr.Nut, can you tell me about how squirrels love?" I asked.
Like Muffinheart, he spoke telepathically and directly into my heart.  He said he had been quietly traveling and sharing love to those in need. For example, he explained that he was there by George's side yesterday. George, a beloved squirrel friend, left his body to join the One Squirrel Heart.  Mr.Nut said it can be somewhat overwhelming to emerge from such a small body and experience again the immensity of the entire Cosmos! So when George was letting go of his breath, Mr.Nut was there to give comfort. Whenever a little squirrel "dies", other squirrels always gather around to give encouragement.
Mr.Nut doesn't like the word "die" because he says it's not really true.  A squirrel never really "dies";  they just drop their "squirrel-form" and join the formless and mighty One.
Humans tend to have trouble understanding this and can feel very alone when their squirrel companion leaves their body. But soon, in time, they realize that the "departed" one never really went anywhere.  And often you will see them simply as beautiful orbs OR streams of radiant light.

A special friend visiting Mr.Nut

So you see... there really is no end to squirrelove.  Like Muffin explained earlier, all the little squirrels are simply the lovers of the Universe.  He says, "And we come to teach the humans that LOVE can never die... it's what you ARE!"

Here is a beautiful photo of a close friend... she came back to see Pucy Pie and Nutkin.

Sweet visitation.

The Squirrels' Secret to Satisfying Sleep

Professor Nut can sleep anywhere, anytime.

Lately there have been many folks inquiring about  Mr.Nut's ability to sleep so soundly and peacefully.  So I asked Mr.Nut to share his sleep secrets. What follows are words straight from the "squirrel's mouth":

~ Preparations for Sleep ~
1. Have a bedtime snack, preferably a light one such as a blueberry or a piece of watermelon.
2. If you have any sticky parts on your body, wash with warm water.  You will feel much more comfortable then.
3. Make sure your blankets are fresh and clean and the room is dark.
4. If you live with someone, get them to rub your tummy and behind your ears. Lots of kisses are also very welcome.

~ Now You Are Ready ~

 Close your eyes and let yourself rest in the space of squirreluminosity.  This is the pure space of juicy squirrel happiness and infinite squirrelove.  It is important to understand that this space is inside of you and outside of you. In fact, there is no place that squirreluminosity is not.
It pervades everything and everyone and is of pure benefit and goodwill.  There is nothing to do now, but to just let go and trust in the One Squirrel Heart. 

Mr.Nut in Peaceful Sleep

Good Night All!

The Abundant Life

Got Nuts?

OK... Mr.Nut has asked me to write this post to clarify something about squirrels.  Mr.Nut is currently teaching a course called "Facebook Etiquette for Posting Comments". One of the topics covered is the use of labels when referring to squirrels. In this post we will consider the label "BEGGAR".

I have heard people toss around the word "little beggars" when they refer to the precious squirrels that show up, asking for food.  I doubt that anyone really thinks about this rude accusation.  Let me explain...

We humans are the ones that are the real beggars; we live amidst bounty and believe we don't have enough. We take on the belief that we have to earn every penny and work hard to live here on the planet. We were all brainwashed in this regard from the time we were children.  So we grow up and cop an attitude that working hard is something to be proud of and we even take pride in working excessively to pay the bills and keep a roof over our heads.  Humans are the ONLY species that pay to live on earth!

Now, reflect upon the brilliance of the little squirrels.  They don't have this erroneous concept.  They do not differentiate between work and play.  Yet, they do indeed work hard... they plant trees that give us the oxygen to breathe and nuts to eat, and they take care of their young and teach them how to survive.   Yes, they will come over and ask for some food when nuts are not in season; but they are far from "beggars".  They are our teachers: they are here to wake us up to the Truth.  Notice that they don't pay rent... they don't pay for food.  Squirrels sit in the lap of the Divine! 
Squirrels never left paradise!
They live the abundant life and if we weren't programmed from early on, we would know how to do that, too. 
So it's high time we gave them the honor and the respect they deserve!

Perhaps instead of the word "beggar" we should be using  the title "precious beings" or "beloved friends".

Listen to this amazing video by Gian Girardi, creator of the Brain Optimization Institute of California.  
In this video, he discusses the true meaning of abundance.
