“Hey!” I said, “this isn’t non-duality, I came here to talk about non-duality!”
“Oh,” one of them replied, “this isn’t non-duality? You want us to talk about that?”
“Yes, not this, that! Talk about that!” I insisted.
“We didn’t realize that this wasn’t that,” another of them asserted.
“Yes, it’s not this, it’s that other thing,” I corrected them, “stop talking about this rather than that.”
But then it dawned on me, if non-duality wasn’t 'this', but was rather 'that', then it wasn’t non-duality at all, instead it was duality.
“Hmmmm,” I wondered, “is it even possible to talk about non-duality? As soon as you open your lips to talk about ‘this’ as opposed to ‘that’ you’ve created duality.”
So now I attend a different non-duality meeting each week. Last week the non-duality meeting was about knitting, this week it’s about coin collecting.
I no longer bother with those silly non-duality non-duality meetings because it’s obvious that they’re talking about ‘that’ and not ‘this!’
