Division is endless!

Non-duality is just a word. It tries to point to the wholeness of everything, all that already is, before our thinking starts to introduce difference and division.

Our mind (whatever that is) and our language are by definition duality based. When we introduce the word “me” then automatically an opposite seems to arise, which we call “not-me”, or “you” or “them”.

When we introduce the word “friend”, likewise it introduces an opposite; “not-friend” or “enemy”.

The problem is that we mistake words for being true whereas they are just labels.

When I call you my friend but someone else calls you their enemy, then what are you?

Words introduce the illusion that we “know” something and that what we know is “real”. All of that is very dangerous when words are taken for being truth.

In the daily news we are constantly informed via written and spoken words about what happens in the world. In the country we call the USA for instance, there are two opposing political parties and they seem to be very different. Apparently when you belong to one of them, you automatically shouldn’t accept the points of view of the other. But even when you belong to one of them, you will have factions within that party who seem to be more in the “centre” or more in the “extreme”.  When you look at any of those factions you will find people that disagree because they are white or black, or man or woman, or religious or non-religious. Then when religious their specific beliefs may be different again, and so on and so on. It is endless.

There is no end to division, because our thinking will always create new words, new labels, new differences. The belief in them being “true” is the mechanism that ultimately leads to conflict and war. The ones who think they are “right” feel they must defeat the ones who they deem to be “wrong”.

These labels, these words, these differences, these conflicts, ALL exist nowhere but in our mind, in our thinking. This is the grand illusion!

Actually and fully and deeply seeing this illusion is the beginning of awakening.

It is also the falling in Love again with all that is, with Life itself…

  1. Yes.

    I would also like to add that the ego loves to think itself superior… the ego loves to think that my grievances are superior to your grievances. If I have a grievance, it’s because I am on the right side of things, I have been wronged, and it’s up to me to make it right. However, if you have a grievance, it’s because you are ignorant, brain-washed, evil, or stupid.

    The truth is that everybody is doing the best they can, and if someone is upset about something, it is because they genuinely have a reason to feel that way.
    There may be some bad actors out there, but the vast majority of people don’t feign being upset for the fun of it.

    We should learn to listen. We should learn to accept that my feelings do not invalidate yours, and vice versa. We should learn that nobody is responsible for our emotional experience, and we should learn to search within rather than seeking outwards to find someone to blame.

  2. Politically speaking, we are the most polarized we’ve been in a very long time. You wanna know why?

    Politically speaking, we are the most polarized we’ve been in a very long time. You wanna know why? -> Social Fuckin Media.
    Specialized news feeds give us “news” and information based on what we’re interested in. If you’re just interested in funny cats or healthy recipes, that’s not so harmful. If you show even a little bias politically, the feed will keep showing you stuff that you agree w to keep you interested in your screen. They want your eyeballs—your eyes are worth so much money. It’s a multi billion dollar industry (or more) harvesting your attention.

    I watched a documentary last night on Netflix “the social dilemma.” It gave me so much anxiety. The problems we’re seeing are bc of this specialized feed.

    Ugh it’s terrifying. We’re sliding right into dystopia.
