Dualistic language

One of the most difficult, indeed impossible, things to do is to express non-duality with language. The very nature of language is dualistic. The inherent problem is that any attempt, through words, to express what it is that which 'we' are is misleading and the more we try to get this message across the more is given the impression that what is being pointed to is difficult, complex or mystical and there's nothing further from the truth. Non-dualistic pointers are to the simple fact that awareness is the basis of our total experience and hence awareness is what we are.

Stephen Wingate in this talk expresss it very clearly in podcast no.12 (A conversation with Stephen Wingate-part 2) at www.urbangurucafe.com
