Finitude Posted September 14, 2022 Share Posted September 14, 2022 The understanding, such as it is, reveals there's only one reality. That reality is a-causal God expressed as multiplicity in manifestation, which includes, well, everything: objects, sense, feeling, sensation, perception, ephemera, phenomena. Everything (yes, everything implies nothing, but language is limited, and its limits become pronounced when discussing these matters, so concessions are a feature of this medium). That said, then: Not two means, NOT TWO under any circumstance whatsoever for any reason whatever. It's an impossibility for there to be more than one. Not two. We can make concessions to the mind, but these concessions are always "white lies" told to reveal truth. For example: "You" are the knower of experience is a "white lie" leading to the truth that all there is, is experience. In the spirit of granularity: If emotional guidance is a tool used to escape the experience of discord for the experience of happiness, then, if there's only one realty, not two, then emotional guidance must itself be a concession to the mind leading only to a relative experience (duality), because the experience, for example, of discord IS a distortion of God appearing as the experience of discord in the same way the experience, for example, of a-causal happiness IS a distortion of God appearing as the experience of a-causal happiness. Any distinction between the two (discord/happiness) is relative (duality), not absolute (non-duality), so the recognition it seems that it's all illusion (which is not to say discord/happiness have no reality to them), that both discord and happiness can only be known as relative experiences, is a confession of absolute reality manifesting as multiplicity, of God, in this example, appearing as the distortions of discord and happiness. I know emotional guidance is a practiced teaching here, the utility of which is not under dispute. The goal is only deeper understanding into the nature of reality, not to challenge or gainsay. If everything is a distortion of God, what then with discord/happiness, love/hate, life/death ... Quote Mention Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
