Human beings have access to a larger dimension of consciousness that is intrinsically free of dualistic fixation — The Eastern spiritual traditions regard this egoless awareness as its true, essential nature, the very ground of being.
Tapping into this pure nondual presence, as in certain types of contemplative knowing, reveals a wide open field of awareness in which the separation between self and ‘other’, or perceiver and perceived, falls away.
To be human is to be vulnerable and indestructible at the same time.
The awareness of nonduality is unconditioned, for it is not produced by any cause or condition. It does not arise and cease; it is always there, ready to reveal itself to the mind that knows how to tune into it.
Nondual awareness is the doorway to liberation by revealing absolute Truth: There is no separate self and no separate ‘other’, and thus dualistic alienation and conflict cease.
