The Only Two Guides You Need in Your Pursuit of Nonduality

Pursuing nonduality? In the old days you had to do Google searches, join email forums, read books, watch videos, listen to podcasts, go to satsangs, make pilgrimages to see gurus.

All that has changed. Now you only need two guides.

1. Facebook.
2. MeetUps.

Have a question about the reputation of a teacher? Want to know whether nonduality will affect your relationships? Ask your friends on FB. Want to hear the latest utterances of some enlightened dude or girl? Facebook. Want to chat with the hottest guru? Want to post your own confessions about the nature of reality? Want to know who’s who and who’s doing what? All you need is Facebook.

For your offline experience, no need to travel far to see a sage or guru. Attend a local nonduality MeetUp group. If there isn’t any, or if there isn’t one to your liking, start one.

Facebook and MeetUps are the only two basic guides needed for your journey to nonduality.

If there’s a third guide, may I suggest the place where the vision for popular nonduality found a home: Nonduality.com

What Is Nonduality, Really?

Nonduality today consists of a wide array of expressions on themes of oneness, interconnectedness, non-separateness, and paradox. These expressions are found in many fields of knowledge and endeavor: science, psychology, religion, spirituality, martial arts, poetry, music, art, literature, communication, education.

The desire to awaken often leads to a search and the discovery of some form of nonduality.

The purpose of my work in nonduality is to provide many opportunities for discovery. It considers nonduality as both a practical tool for more effective living and a pointing to what is. My work also includes the deconstruction of nonduality, and the deconstruction of deconstruction.

In other words, there’s both something to nonduality and nothing to it. Out of some colors of existence something is fashioned and it is called nonduality. But what is nonduality, really? Knowing what it really is, there is laughter, enjoyment … and another email to open!
