Hmm, how am I going to formulate this in a short text.
I do not think that Non-Duality is that everything is one, but that everything is related,
when you say sickness and health, dirty and clean, poor and rich.. What do you mean?
The duality is not sickness and health, etc. The duality is that you consider one to be bad and another to be good.
We live in a world of opposites and the problem is that we choose to consider one to be bad and another to be good and forget that those 2 are in fact
brother and sister and just like in real life, brother and sister both have good and bad sides.
Let's say that the reincarnation of evil, a person, becomes terminally ill, do we not cheer for the disease for doing good for others?
Or otherwise when the reincarnation of evil recovers from a severe illness do we not blame doctors, medicines, his immune system, the things that do
good for others now indirectly do bad for others.
What is good for one is bad for another, likewise, what is good for us at a certain time may be bad later and vica versa.
A good deed can have bad concequences and vica versa
Imagine 2 ripples in a pond, one is good, one is bad.. They both go their own way, then at a certain point they meet and become one, they change each
other and then go on their way again...
It is possible that the bad ripple, perhaps unintentionally, did something good for the good ripple or vica versa.
Non-duality is understanding that you are not the ripple in the pond, but the pond itself.
You do not forget that they are good or bad, but you understand that they both are a part of yourself.
If you always fight against the dark and do not see the broader perspective then eventually you will lose.
Just like the day becomes the night, you cannot stop it, but when you understand that you are both the day and the night, you have nothing to fight
and your mind will be at peace.
Non-duality is not forgetting their is no good or bad, non-duality is understanding that you excist both out of light and dark and that that is
You might be more light than dark, but you are still a little bit dark,
and others may be more dark than light but are still a little light, even though they might not realise it.
Non-duality does not make you passive against injustice and other bad things happening in the world, it just gives you peace and understanding and
helps you to make right choices because you have a bigger insight into both the light and the dark.
For most of us, we need to embrace the darkness to see the light.
Our sun, a light shining so bright, giving life to everything we see, making us able to see everything it gives life to, has the power to become a
black hole, a most devestating phenomenom.
And when the sun becomes a black hole, do we blame it for becoming bad? No, because we understand that it always has had it in it to become that.
Just like a good person can become bad, but do we blame the person for being bad, alas in our society we do, but it is because we forget that every
experience, every thought, everything the person saw, heard, smelled, felt had shaped him into eventually becoming bad and that bad person still has
time, as long as it lives, to become good again.
Understand to Love (unconditional).
That's my 2 cents,
feel free to critize it but please keep it a dialogue and don't just trash it.
