Good Monday Morning…a very simple secret

“Nonduality is incredibly simple but it is incomprehensible to the mind. It doesn’t matter how much the mind studies this, it will never get it. We can study this and understand concepts about it, but the mind will never approach what nonduality actually is.

The mind could analyze and fully understand the constituents of an orange but that wouldn’t give us any idea what one tastes like. But once we’ve tasted one, its flavor is incontrovertible whether we understand what constituents it contains or not. In the same way, we can have a very good understanding of nonduality but that won’t tell us what liberation tastes like.”–Richard Sylvester, The Book of No One
