Where No one is Home
No one is doing anything and all is Bliss!!!
In the deep stillness, the silence; time folds in on itself.
There is no me, no I, no thing.
I merge into the vastness.
Not this, not this, I’m not even that.
Then, I am that
I experience love and I want to share it with other beings who are this or that.
But, if there is no me, how can I do that 🙂 non-duality
Non duality is a philosophical and early Hindu and late Zen Buddhist concept that the absolute reality consists of no separate self, no thing, no time and no space.
That what we think we are and see as separate is Maya ‘Illusion’ or not real.
Maya in the Vedas actually refers to the manifest universe (an expression of consciousness) and does not translate to Illusion.
It’s called Advaita Vedanta, in Hindu meaning ‘not two’ – indicating a oneness. It came later in Buddhism, with Nagarjuna’s (2nd century) writings on emptiness. We see this also in Einstein’s space-time theory.
It’s a tricky one to get your head around. That’s why Indian philosophy and Einstein both point to clearing the mind of distractions (thoughts), so that this can be realised. non-duality
But, as Rick Archer (BATGP) says: “What if I stub my toe, someone in China isn’t feeling it”.
So non duality becomes misunderstood as the transcendent, non-toe feeler.
Individuality does not die in Consciousness
This picture (on the t-shirt) came into my mind, when I was meditating one day recently.
So I drew it, that’s what I do. I call it creativity… n-duality
Afterwards, I was thinking about how when we stop and be still, time seems to fold in on itself. Life is still happening, we are just not experiencing in lineal time constructs.
I thought the saying “I’ll be there in no time’ was funny because: If there is no time, no place to go, then
I’ll be there in no time
I love the way Jaq O’keefe discusses some good old fashioned Irish nonduality here!
Non dual communication is like non-communication
