Practical Nonduality? Part Two

AARP Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life - Richard Rohr - Google Books

When i think dualistically, i almost always end up doing, encouraging, or inviting violence.  The well nigh inevitable steps in the process are as follows:  

"The dualistic mind --

1) compares, then
2) competes, then
3) conflicts and
4) conspires, and 
5) condemns, then
6) cancels out any contrary evidence, and finally,
7) crucifies with impunity."
