“The point of this teaching is the realisation of total and complete freedom, in which we are free from suffering.”
The teaching we will be exploring is not new. It can be traced throughout the ages in the heart of spiritual traditions such as Zen, Vedanta, Sufism, Taoism, the teachings of Jesus, and probably many others too. This teaching also occurs spontaneously outside of any tradition, and ultimately what it points to cannot be contained by words or concepts. Luckily for us however it can be directly experienced first-hand, and in fact is always and already being directly experienced.
Non-duality, literally meaning 'not-two', points to the fact that there is no separation. Most of us believe that we are each separate individual people, but exploring this teaching can reveal that the sense of personal self that most people take for granted is actually an illusion. It is this illusory sense of personal self that is the root cause of so much mischief, misery and suffering in ourselves and in the world. And when it is seen to be illusory, these problems can be remedied at the root. I call this Freedom.
