Excerpt About Duality
Unobscured PerceptionPhysical reality is made up of objects which can be discriminated. If you perceive the world exclusively through the physical senses you perceive only discrete objects, such as people, trees, animals, rocks, clouds, oceans, earth. If you experience this level only, which is the basis of the egoic perspective, the universe that you see is dualistic. But if your perception is unobscured by your beliefs, your inner perception becomes unblocked, and the universe looks quite different. If your perceptual capacities are clear, you recognize that other dimensions exist in addition to physical reality, such as love, Beingness, and awareness. At this level of perception, you see that there is only one existence, one homogeneous medium. This medium encompasses physical reality, which is one particularization of it. Objects are seen as objects, but they are not discrete -- more like waves on the surface of an ocean, lacking existence without the whole the ocean. So differentiation exists, but not ultimate divisions.
