The Way Of The Way 271

Duality is when I am one thing and not another.

Duality is when I am one race and not another,

one nationality and not another,

one religion and not another;

when I am me and not anything that’s not me.

Duality is an illusion our mind creates.

When I am who I am,

I see illusions as illusions.


Though illusory, duality has a real effect: imprisoning us from realizing our uniqueness. To escape, we can calm our mind through meditation and then let go our self-identities which heretofore we took seriously.
