Practical Nonduality? Part One+

In the "kingdom of God" the "gini index" is both .0000 and 1.0000.
This is a mystery.  This is "non-duality."
"Practically," it can be "achieved" by "taking everything" and being God, or
by "giving everything away" and being "like God."
As i grow old, the second path begins to look much easier.

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."
