Non-Dual Gospel of Matthew: Matthew 11:7-9

Matthew 11:7-9   

 7As these men were going away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John, “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 8“But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Those who wear soft clothing are in kings’ palaces! 9“But what did you go out to see?

Three times, he asked them to “see”.
What lies beneath the outer form?
Look too low, and you observe what is commonplace.
Gaze too high, and you create false majesty.
Stare too much and you do not hear
 the message
the shared heart-beat.
Is this not like reading scripture?
