Nonduality or Oneness or Wholeness already IS. THIS right HERE and NOW is One. One Substance. One Reality. Whole. Limitless. There is nothing to do or get, nowhere to go, nothing to find, nothing to gain. Not one single action, thought, question or answer, spiritual experience, clear seeing, can ever MAKE THIS Nondual. It already IS.
So we aren't trying to CREATE Nonduality - we are simply seeing Reality as it is.
There must be an incorrect template or filter or mechanism at work, so that Nondual Reality is "seen" as separate, containing infinite separate pieces or parts. This describes the basic equation of subject/object. "I AM seeing the world".
The assumed presence of a "ME" automatically assumes the presence of the opposite of "ME" - the "world". Then "I AM seeing the world". Yet this isn't actual experience.
We might try various types of investigation, meditation, chanting, inquiry... yet in these "paths" we are under the assumption that something new will be obtained, some new way of seeing, some different appearance, some special spiritual experience. This is missing the point.
We simply need to see the mechanism - realize how it works. Yet we can never see this because we are EMPLOYING that very same mechanism as we undergo the spiritual search. We can't "find the answers" using the filter which is ITSELF the problem, which is itself the "creation of duality".
Therefore we cannot place a condition on experience. We cannot say that a "special state" must come for Enlightenment. We cannot say that a certain experience is "better" than any other. We cannot continue to make distinctions between "good" experience and "bad" experience.
And in the spiritual search, we are trying to "create" experience. This is missing the point. We have an abundance of experience - any experience will do. It is TOTALLY irrelevant what the experience is.
ALL experience is dependent on Consciousness or Awareness to appear. No experience has EVER appeared without this immediacy of present Consciousness. THEN the mind comes in and translates experience. Whatever that translation ends up as, is irrelevant. We MUST see that it is the translation itself that creates Duality. This is the only part that matters.
So THIS is ALREADY Oneness. No matter what THIS IS, what it's translated AS, THIS is Oneness. The translations appear IN this Oneness. So the translations can never quantify Oneness - doing so IS Duality. But the translation or Duality NEVER separates Oneness.
You aren't LACKING Oneness. Every experience, no matter what it is, IS Oneness already. Simply SEE that the translation never separates what IS. And the "you" you've taken yourself to be, is nothing more than a translation.
Oneness is already found, already present, already THIS. Any experience is Oneness already. The translations ARE Oneness. The seeking and finding and confusion and clarity and "not getting it" and "getting it" and seekers and gurus and books and CD's - it simply does not matter WHAT appears - these are only AS SUCH - IN TRANSLATION of mind.
Translation can never modify, correct, alter, or in any way, separate this immediacy, this present Nonduality.
