Nondualism is often misinterpreted to mean emptiness. The truth is nonduality has both emptiness and fullness! It is often not recognized that nonduality also contains duality; it includes all, and also transcends all. Nondualism unites all things on every level. Christ is the poster child for nondualism!!! Nondualism recognizes that everything came from One and is going back to One. We are one in the One. We are all one, and we are all in the One.
There is one River with two banks. If we choose to stay only on one bank or the other we become polarized; we miss the other bank and the River. If we stay centered in the River, we can flow from bank to bank easily and effortlessly. Higher Wisdom recognizes that all states of being flow from Being; all experiences flow from the One. We sometimes need to empty; other times we need to fill. Sometimes we need to keep silent; other times to speak up. Sometimes we need to break down, sometimes we need to build up. Being one with the River, flowing with the One as our center, we can flow, grow, expand, be still, contract, be born, die, live, love, laugh and cry. Be the River!
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to cast away; a time to rend and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
There is a season for everything, AND in the Now we are always in season!!! In the present NOW, the new heavens on earth exist. The Kingdom of God is NOW and is within all. Wake Up!!! Life your eyes and SEE!!! Step into eternal Now now!!!
“That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away” Eccl 3:15
All exists in the present Now. What was, is and is to come is ALL NOW! Nondualism is Christ in all things and all people! “Christ is all, and in all” Colo 3:11 Be the River, Be the Christ, Be the Love, Be the Light and be One with the Father! Abba! God is Spirit, One Spirit, that is in ALL things!!! Be Spirit! Flow! Rise! Expand! Uplift! Soar! Explore river banks, but don’t forget to be anchored and centered in the River at all times!!! Lets get wet!!! If you stay centered in the River you will never dry out!!!
Drink the Living Water and you will never thirst again! Eat and drink Christ and you will never be lacking, limited or suffering. Remember!!! Be nondual! Be one with the One! The Atonement is being at ONE with the One! One plus One is One! When you are two or more, the One is always in the midst of you! When you are alone, you are “all one” with the One! Remember you never walk alone! You always have Divine Companionship!
“I will never leave you or forsake you” says God!
We live, move and have our being in God. There is one Being and infinite Beingness and you are also That!!! Step away from the polarized bank and remember you are the River! Flow! Be like teflon and do not stick! Flow!
Now you are one. In the present moment you are one. When your mind worries about the past or fears the future, you are no longer one, but divided. A divided house, mind, or thoughts cannot stand. Make your eye single, sound and full of light and your whole body will be full of light.
Stop thinking of yourself as a separate self. It does not exist! Deny yourself and follow the Way, Truth and Life Itself!!! There is only One Being; allow your beingness and becoming to be one with the One!!! No longer divide yourself into body, mind, heart, soul and spirit: be one with the One! Be whole, wholly bright, and holy! Instead of the duality of darkness and light, just turn on the Light! Don’t try to dial down the darkness, just be Light! Be one with the One! Be Presence! Be present! Be now!
Christ was, is and is to come (Rev 1:8). The adversary/devil was, IS NOT, and is to come (Rev 17:8-11). If you live in the Now, in the present moment, in the realization of the Presence of God in all things, THERE IS NO ADVERSARY in the Now!!! Be nondual now. Christ was the “beginning and the end” (two) AND “is, was and is to come” (three) and One with all and in all (nonduality, trinity and infinity)!!!! God is nondual, trinitarian and infinite: All One in the eternal new Now!!!!!!
Be one with the One now and watch your life transform!!! This is the mystery revealed! This is the secret! Christ is all and in all!!! Be One!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reunite the physical with the spiritual. Reunite the secular with the sacred. Reunite God with human beings. Reunite Spirit with matter. Reunite body, mind, heart, soul and spirit. Reunite opposites and flow between the shores; be the River!
Right relationship is the key. Right relationship to all is Oneness, Wholeness and Freedom!!! Its not this or that, duality (1 + 1 = One!); its not trinity or quaternity (not three, not four, but 3 + 4 = 7 completion), but One expressed in many ways!!!! Nondualism Rocks!!!!! Is is; it is not; it is both; and it is neither; all is one with the One now!!!!!!!!!!!
Whether you see one in Islam, two in Gnosticism, three in Christianity, none in Buddhism or thousands in Hinduism, there is only One Source of God, religions, humanity, and the world. Worship as you want, but you cannot be one without the One!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jesus taught to not worship the physical manifestation of the One, but if you have seen the one you have seen the One!!! Paul taught to not worship the creation, but to Worship the One Creator. The only problem in the universe is putting ones above the One; created things above the Creator.
Reunite with the One and Worship the One. Give thanks to the One. Sacrifice your separate self to the One. Sacrifice your physical body to the One and be made Whole once again. Be One or be square! Be One! Be! Become One! Be One and express your unique beingness; there will only ever be one you! Express yourself within the One!

thanks melanie! I Love God!!! I love you!
I agree wholeheartedly with Melanie! That was certainly the most invigorating post I’ve seen in a while. Congratulations for letting it all hang out. Definitely “felt” what you were saying. Where do you get all of the beautiful photos? I’m with you on the oneness. Many more people every day on this Earth are embracing the truth that we are all one.
Thank you for this dazzling, enthusiastic post!
Thanks Jerry! I get the beautiful pictures by the awesome direction of my Mentor, the Holy Spirit! I LOVE beauty because it screams God to me, so I am led to it and I save it on my desktop until Spirit guides me to insert it. Sometimes I can’t see my desktop for the myriad images of beauty that collect there. I am SO thankful for all who take such beautiful photos. I am eternally grateful! I wish I knew the author of more of them so I could thank them personally. I think the top photo is from NASA? Beautiful images come from God and I am SO SO thankful and appreciative!!!
I love meeting new companions on this incredible adventure we call life! No matter what our circumstances, or where in the world we are — Oneness is ours, simply because it is our true nature.
When our soul begins to stir and unfold its myriad petals of understanding we will attain true awareness of the eternal beauty that is both us and that which created us and so a discovery of our own dream within a dream will appear that has remained hidden for so long.
Warm wishes to one and all,
Thank you for your beautiful poetic response! I love your words “our soul begins to stir and unfold its myriad petals of understanding…attain true awareness of the eternal beauty”!!! Yes, eternal Beauty! Yes, our true nature is one with God, ourselves, others and nature. I love seeing the One in all its expressions and faces! Blessings, Yvonne
Thank you for such a lovely response 🙂
SECRET KNOWLEDGE OF THE SELF is neither body nor consciousness.
When we look deeply into something, we are no longer really looking, we are experiencing. It is the experiencing that is us, not us experiencing. Here shines the light of wisdom. We are simply bearers of light bearing the light of awareness. Looking through the veil, through the thin mist of mind, we gaze upon the unseen. In that moment of blissful gaze, there lies eternity. There, all appearances has its source in pure awareness.
Just in case anyone is interested, I am giving away a signed copy of my latest book Voyager: The Art of Pure Awareness on Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/53799-voyager-the-art-of-pure-awareness.
Peace and happiness,
Thanks, Very up lifting!! mary
