Monism Is at the Essence of All Duality

Please, if possible, glance slowly and deliberately at any given object in your immediate surroundings. What do you see? It may be a chair, table, or a picture on the wall. You are essentially a part of anything you observe. Furthermore, each and every object is of one state of being. And, the marvelous mystery of oneness manifests in all shapes and sizes. This is too much for the mind, strictly mentally speaking, to comprehend. Thus, the mind interprets monism as dualism. The mind does this in an attempt to define and categorize.


“There is a thing inherent and natural, which existed before heaven and earth. Motionless and fathomless, it stands alone and never changes; it pervades everywhere and never becomes exhausted. It may be regarded as the Mother of the Universe. I do not know its name. If I am forced to give it a name, I call it Tao, and I name it as supreme.”
– Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Nevertheless, the mind is naturally a part of this mysterious oneness. And, this creates a paradox. Hence, the mind over-compensates the simplicity of monism. Therefore, it is very difficult for a person to disregard thoughts and feelings that invoke separation. The presence of oneness that manifests through all objects is there within each heartbeat and within each breath. This is the nature of beingness and the isness of living. It is a vibrating flow of energy.

Monism and Dualism Are One State of Being

Likewise, it is beneficial to realize that the spirit (flowing vastness) of oneness is manifesting through you. Furthermore, it is your localized energy, whether mind or consciousness, that can and will determine the flow of this energy. Are you ready for the next step in this conscious exercise? If yes, then reach out beyond your immediate surroundings and observe a tree, the sky, the sun and moon. Here also, realize deeply that you are all these things and so much more.

We experience large segments of life in a state of automation. Oh, it is correct to say that we laugh, we cry, and often we are afraid. But, are we actually living? Your response will reflect whether the answer originates from within a state of unconsciousness or active consciousness.

The following statement is a helpful stepping stone that can change how you live life. Deeply acknowledge that life will reveal itself according to how you see yourself in relation to it. This insight is accurate in both good times and bad. And, is also true in happy times or sad or good health or sickness.

I wish you joyfulness and good health
