Nonduality?

What is nonduality?

Nonduality is the loving and intelligent use of concepts, to guide the alive discovery…

  • The discovery that the distinction between “me” and “not-me” is conceptual (artificial).
  • The practical exploration of “mind” and “identity” (suffering).
  • The liberating insight that life is not a problem to solve, but a mystery to embrace.

It is not about super powers or unending pleasure, but the gratitude in seeing and releasing our muscle-memory, misconceptions and thinking errors.

There is only one reality, and each generation/culture uses different mental images to point to that which is beyond words:

Christianity…
‘I and my Father are one’.

Buddhism…
‘Nirvana and Samsara are identical’.

Hinduism…
‘Atman and Param-Atman are one’.

Sufism…
‘Wherever the eye falls,
there is the face of God’.

Islam…
To God belong the East and the West;
wherever you turn, there is the face of God.

Wherever you turn,
whatever you see,
whatever you touch – God’s presence is there.
It is God’s handiwork

“God sees God everywhere.”
Francis Lucille, The Perfume of Silence

“Just be still and know I am.”

“In me you have peace, in the world you have tribulations.”

“I am with you always.”

“I am the truth, the way, the gate, life…”

Not as spiritual pep-talk, not as temporary pain-killers, but as precious pointers to simply see what IS, the gift of life.
