Why Duality and Nonduality are the Same

Are we living in a dying world? Or is a luminous intelligence beyond our grasp dreaming us all? By deleting the belief in an ego and its environment, the true nature of reality is revealed. There is neither duality nor nonduality, yet also both. That is the strange solution to the problem of the suffering world.

Observe the Play of the Weak and the Strong

The poetry of Attar is unpacked to reveal its profound spiritual teachings. The relationship between the weak and the strong elements in the ego will determine its health and willingness to grow and recognize the Truth. The bottom line is that the ego must realize it is nothing, a shadow, and one must live only for what is real and eternal—which is the Beloved Self.

To the Marriage of True Souls there is no Impediment

Life is about love in all forms. But one must love one’s Self before one can truly connect with another being. It must be clearly perceived that the other manifests the same yin-yang duality as well as being different and complementary. Our current disintegrating culture has reached a state of total chaos and dysregulation of gender and forms of relationship. But those who still sustain a sacred attitude and have the capacity for commitment can create fulfilling marriages

The Schizophrenia at the Heart of Reality

Why don't we live constantly in joy? Are we addicted to suffering? Some mysterious power binds us to the illusion of lack. There is a kind of schizophrenia in the Mind of God that produces a world of contradictions and a superposition of peace and conflict, nirvana and samsara. The path to liberation starts when we remember to laugh at the unreal ego. Then the blissful shakti emerges as a creative force that lights up our world.

We Emanate Mandalas of Living Energy

Shunyamurti classifies the different types of energies that emanate from consciousness. The spectrum extends from gross chemical energies to the life energy that nourishes our cells to the even more subtle energies of thoughts and emotions in the quantitative modality. Then, in virtual reality, the imperceptible energies of the subconscious ego and the superconscious soul create the templates that produce the patterns of our lives. We can either experience beauty or ugliness, coherence or confusion, freedom or slavery, joy or depression, depending on the underlying energetic mandalas that arise from our implicate nature.

Where Reason Fails, the Heart Prevails

The love poems to and from God channeled by the revered Sufi mystic Farideddin Attar, and collected in the book entitled Sweet Sorrow, may be the most potent medicine for cynical minds afflicted by toxic forms of love.

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.


Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.


Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
