Nonduality is a black hole. There’s nothing to say about it, nothing to learn or teach, nothing to know or hold up for display. I, who can’t seem to shut up about it, can’t think of anything to say about it. With Buddhism you can say, “There was this Gautama guy…”, and with Christianity, you can say, “There was this Jesus guy…”, but nonduality doesn’t have a guy. Philosophies have tenets and precepts and dogma, nonduality has none. No story, no rules, no narrative, just the massive destructive potential of not-two itself.
Nonduality means either nothing or everything, depending on which side of the bed you got up on. What can you say about nothing or everything? Sure, there’s plenty of peripheral stuff to say about nonduality — how to get there, what to do there, what to do after, and so on — but there’s just really nothing to say about nonduality itself. That being said, let’s talk about nonduality.
