Someone who subscribe to the nondual aproach belives 100% in the golden rule since hurting someone else is hurting you but that do not mean you cannot be a karmawall.
A nondual person do not have to accept any behavior from other people just because they are part of or will be part of the same whole.edit on 11-10-2012 by apushforenlightment because: spellchecking
but it's not the non-duality itself that promotes altruism, rather the knowledge of non-duality.

I only partly agree, but completely disagree with Your final statement that there is no duality.
Neutrality -as in "non-duality'(!), basically, is self-destructive. It only exists by grace of duality. The whole good/bad/neutral discussion is self-immolating by nature. (oh my.. here we go.. Metaphysics and Wittgensteinian semantics..brrr.. ) Depending on one's school of thinking, neutrality as such is a state abóve, or a state inbetween. Yet, that "state of existence" is due to the real good/bad dichotomy.
It gets even worse if cultural preconceptions about good/bad enter the fray.
It's the dreaded "foundation" discours.Hów far do we descent into Krypke semantics, or other math-mased semantics and logic?
Correct me if I am wrong, please, do.edit on 11/10/12 by dutchmilpo because: (no reason given)
