Non Duality: the GREAT RISK!
Investigating the nature of ourselves can be a challenging thing to do. Pushed by the search for a deeper meaning in life and grasping something that goes beyond our ordinary state, we might start to investigate the nature of reality and our mind.
There are many paths and explanations available. In my personal experience, the more effective work can be found in the non-duality approach: which takes into consideration the subject (ourselves) and life together, without separating them.
There are various explanations that can be found about life, mainly we can distinguish them into 3 main categories:
1. the theological one: according to which reality is created by an external entity and has a specific purpose;
2. the materialistic one: according to which reality arises by chance, due to the law of physic and coincidences;
3. the non-dual one: common to all authentic spiritual traditions of realization, according to which the "object" cannot be distinguished and separated from the “subject”.
I have personally explored non-duality in various ways: through my Buddhist teachings, self-inquiry, and listening to great teachers such as Rubert Spira, Mooji, Alan Watts, and many others.
However, what I have discovered is that this kind of intellectual investigation, common also in the Advaita Vedanta, might bring some serious problems.
The biggest problem that we could find ourselves in (without BEING AWARE OF IT!) is remaining on the surface and acquiring new beliefs.
The non duality paths can be really powerful and can transform the way we see ourselves. However, we have to do the real work!
The GREAT RISK is that we just change our old belief system with a new one: a new vision of ourselves based on an enlightened version of who we are. We start to see life through the lens of a spiritually enlightened being. That is a big mistake!
For those who have investigated seriously, this matter, enlightenment does not exist and exists at the same time. Because the problem (search) of it is not there anymore.
The spiritual journey is an illusion created within the mind, and one cannot find a resolution in it. Although, it is helpful at the beginning to address this problem intellectually. It is a paradox to be accepted!
In this video, I talk about the great risks of non duality intellectual investigations, based on my personal experience in a Sangha (spiritual community) of more than 400 people.
